All SkotOS Maps Updated; Please Report Bugs

In the last several days I've updated the way that all the game maps are stored for Ironclaw, Lazarus, Lovecraft, and Marrach, to make it possible for our admins and GMs to add new maps and map fragments to our games. Everything is working from my browsing, but I've heard a few reports of missing maps in Marrach (which may or may not have predated the update).

If any maps seem to have gone missing in those four SkotOS games, please let me know. If you see a broken map or map fragment where the image isn't showing up:

1. Open the image in a new tab (usually by right-clicking and choosing this option from a menu)
2. Copy the URL of the image from the URL bar
3. Email that URL to me at shannona@skotos.net

  • Do you think OOC type penalties should be public knowledge?

    Do you think OOC penalties by players should be given out publicly somewhere?

    For example, JohnDow is caught botting. He is punished by (whatever botting players get punished with...i have no idea). That day you see something like
    JohnDow was caught botting at 15:14 on 4/14/2012. He has been penalized with account suspension for 4 days.

    I have no clue what the penalty is, that just an example.

    Or, instead of posting their name, something like this:

    A player was caught botting at 15:14 on 4/14/2012. He has been penalized with account suspension for 4 days.

    I figure minor infractions like OOCly saying Sh^t, three times and getting put in that holding room wouldnt get posted.

    Or, do you believe that penalties/punishments should continue being 100% private, between the GM and the transgressor?

    Thanks!

    Oh, and I dont mean that the penalties are posted in the forums, i mean posted in the WA.

    Yes, the penalty/punishment should be public, and contain the players name.

    No. Penalties/punishments should be kept between the transgressor and the GM

    I think the punishments should generally be kept private.
    Don't tread on me.

        It's fine and dandy to want someone's name posted, but no one wants to see their own names posted. We all have indiscretions at some point, and once you're seen as a cheat, everyone looks at you differently. Even if it was a stupid mistake.

        Some things are misunderstandings and deserve to be given a chance to make up for them.

        However, you have to wonder if public defamation wouldn't stop people from cheating, knowing that if they do they will lose face so to speak.
        Amatoria crams a fist full of biscuits in her mouth.
        You pick out a biscuit from some biscuits.
        You consume the last of a biscuit.
        Dragaxus says to you, "You know you're quite sexy when you do that."
        Amatoria spits crumbs all over, "You're just saying that."

        Typically, 9 times out of 10 in TEC you are bored you just dont realize it because your brain functions at a higher rate and it keeps you from thinking about the possibility that you are simply sitting there doing absolutely nothing.
