Sarah Palin's genitalia

When the mods are around, sure - there might be the odd joke made and even non-PvP talk taking place...but when they're not around, it can be a case of flipping tabs.

Don't get me wrong, I've made my share of odd jokes - said stupid things - but some of the crap said in there is unbelievably crass. It makes it hard to recommend the channel to anybody or even admit that I've ever heard of the channel...the behavior of a few reflects so poorly on others that would have more folks check the channel out, get more involved in PvP, and try to show Cryptic there's a source of revenue there so they make the investment in PvP.


Well, I've seen the RP trollish stuff on occasion, and that's fine as long as it's in good fun - but those topics? What the hell? Seriously, what the hell?

It does really feel like PvP-related stuffs has been on a bit of a downturn lately, at least during the time I'm on - think about 4am to 9am GMT. There has been a lot of silence - and a bunch of Fleet chat PvP. It feels like a lot of the people who used to be old standbies have disappeared. I may not have been active for very long, but I've lurked for a long time, and seen many new handles in the past few months - not all of them good. Wonder if Pascal wasn't on to something with that moderated channel thing a few weeks back.

Then again, it still is a fair source for quick advice. However, quick is the operative word here. The chat system does not lend itself well at all to imparting builds and more detailed stuff like that.
Take it easy!

And by contrast - what I saw in OPvP as I log on at my more usual time - folks X'ing up, folks discussing mechanics, etc.

We've been in the process of promoting new Mods to cover all of the timezones for a while now, the only problem is that finding level headed and non-biased people who are willing to act to keep the channel clean within a PvP community is not an easy thing to do.

For what it's worth, I let a lot of little stuff in the channel go (venting, some trolling, etc.), and when I do police the channel I catch all kinds of flak from people who don't like what I do. For the Mods it is very much, damned if you do and damned if you don't; hell I'm still catching flak for letting Nerds of Prey do their base access give-a-way a couple of weeks ago.

Anyway, it's not perfect and it has its ups and downs, but there is a slowly increasing number of mods in the channel who are willing to act to keep it clean.

Wasn't damning the mods for not being there, was damning the folks taking advantage of the mods not being there... far as the NoP thing, that's going to be like almost anything - you're going to get flak for allowing X group speak from Y group that doesn't like X group, etc, etc, etc. There's no escaping that.

Just a comment...

I had added "OrganizedPvP" to my chat channel selection..

Thing is, the 5 or 6 times I've tried to contact someone on that channel, there was no response...

Is there a "Best Time" to try to get questions answered ?
I'm in NA, on the east coast.

...Or since you have taken over the role as channel administrator, are you planning to have more people watching the chat channel ?

I'd definatly use this service. Just havent had luck trying to chat with someone in channel..

This was about a month ago (the last time I tried)
