    CGO Forums

    Although we have agreed not to police the offsite GCO forums, it has been brought to our attention that some members are sharing other players' and staff members' account information in those forums.
    6. Restrictions. You agree not to do any of the following prohibited actions:

    I. reveal information, to anyone without access to such information, without the express permission of a member, that (i) personally identifies such member; (ii) reveals the administrative role of such member within a game; or (iii) reveals the names of game characters identified with such member.
    The above quote is directly from the Skotos Terms of Service agreement each player agreed to when opening a Skotos account. All of these Terms of Service are not restricted to the Skotos site or it's games. This is fair warning that we will follow up on reports of this nature. If you have been guilty of sharing another person's account info in these forums, or any other, we would suggest you remove them or take responsibility for them when we take appropriate action.

    Emails

    We are in the process of setting certain things up IG that will send you emails to alert you when they happen. Examples of current things on the list are:

    When a GM replies to one of your bug reports.
    When a GM replies to one of your requests.
    When a player or GM sends you an @mail IG.

    This system will require the email address you've stored on your account to be up-to-date. A large majority of emails on file are greatly outdated. To help with this the @email command has been updated to allow you to not only set your password initially, but to change it whenever you need to.

    If you do not wish to receive emails from TEC, please either do not set it or use the @email command, choose to change your email address, and enter "clear" to clear your email address out of the system.

    Edit: We've noticed spam filters are aggressively filtering out the test emails we are sending to ourselves during this process, so you may want to make sure noreply@tec.skotos.net is added as an approved sender in whatever email client you use if you wish to receive these new emails.

    New Staff Members

    I'd like to announce that we have brought on two new GMs recently in an attempt to help take up the slack left by Kneller's departure. Vejovis and Busillis. Both are still getting their footing as staff and will be becoming more visible as they become comfortable in their new role.

    Voting Reminder

    As you may already have noticed, a voting reminder has been added to most Welcome Rooms in the past few days (and ONLY these Welcome Rooms - there are no messages while you are playing). You will only be receiving a reminder if your last login was over 12 hours ago and new accounts during their trial period will not be receiving these reminders. As a direct result of this new voting reminder, there will be no more gamewide messages having to do with voting.

    We really appreciate receiving your votes and enabling us to currently make a stand in the Top 20 again. To all of those who have voted, you have our sincere thanks. By voting you are effectively helping to promote the game that we all love.

    New policy for destroyed items:

    Destroyed items can now be fully restored to their original state by filing a @request. You must have the destroyed item in your possession. A cost of 250 RPs along with roughly half of the item's original worth in money will be asked to repair the item.

    Public Service Announcement

    We're looking for players who have characters that are interested in playing the role of defense for prisoners requesting trials. If you are interested, please file an @request stating which character you'd like to join and why. Please take this seriously and do not send in frivolous request just to try and get access to the forum just to be nosy. Use the title "Request to join Lex Legalis" for your request.

    Phaedra seems to have wandered off and gotten lost. I'm sure we'll see her again soon.

    [Due to a problem with the dialogue mechanics, Phaedra wasn't making any sense. We're going to remove her for the time being to avoid any confusion and see if we can't get her back in place sometime in the near future.]

    Tired of speaking the same old language of your homeland? Learn a new one!

    The various Language Tutors at the Iridine Library are here for you! As you walk into the Iridine Library, there is a desk. "GO DESK" will get you close enough to speak with the attendant that will lead you to the tutors. Simply tell him you want to learn a LANGUAGE. If you need assistance in using the tutors themselves, simple whisper "HELP" to any tutor and they will give you more details on how to learn!

    Note: This has been in place since the library opened.

    FYI: If a player uses the 'end' command to kill off their character after they've been put in a coma, they will NOT be awarded a VC package. The character MUST have a valid PK request open and active on them before a VC package will be considered.
