Here's an idea that is totally off tangent/target. I don't think
that mortals in the ooc should be able to communicate
lock e any fashion with anyone that is in the game. It makes
chant vid jiv ex or whatever....sorry my 'in' alias fired.
oops so did my 'sense' alias, ha ha. Do you all
think that this is a good idea or just make your
life an even bigger pain in the butt and not
help anything at all??

I linger OOC so I can talk or just have something to read when
I come back from being OOW/AFK.. I think I'd just rent if I
couldn't do that, what with timed eq and all.

I don't really see why this idea would be necessary or helpful.
In fact I think (and someone has said before) that we should
be able to see the full whos list from ooc and talk to them,
since you can't sit ooc with your spells on anymore for pk
purposes, what's the harm in letting people sit ooc?
If I want to sit ooc because i'm only on the mud to talk to
someone or other, i don't see why they should have to come
ooc too, if they want to be playing while they talk. Or if
I'm talking to someone and want to check boards... there's
plenty of reason I should be able to talk to someone ic from
ooc but none i can see why i shouldn't other than to make ooc
more separate from the rest of the mud.

We do want OOC to be "separate" from the rest of the mud, but that
needs to be balanced with the need for OOC to be usable and worth
visiting for players.
Is there a particular problem you were trying to address with your

I never used to go ooc at all, since I'm never out of character, except
in tells. It would be rather odd to prevent people from communicating ooc
when ooc (unless they have icq). The problem is when pk'ers use ooc for
taunting, but that's none of my business. Maybe if there was a more clear
distinction in the channels, one being more for ooc and one for rp; then t
rp channel could be cut off for people ooc. Still somewhat odd, but I say
run with it.

it's illegal for a pk'er to taunt from the ooc, if you see someone
doing such, report them.
