Posted by Arcane on 06/12
I used to think that all the imms that i met were pretty cool
they were willing to help and more often than not were quite friendly
I am willing to admit that i have made many past mistakes
for instance i multi played a few times and swaped a few mediocre items
which the first time i accepted the warning and the consequences
i.e. lost gear, ect.
however at a later point in the game i have a friend who i did not want to mess with my chars
i had been aware of his knowledge of my passwords but had never before felt that it was a problem
however when i decided to change them i made a BIG mistake
i mistyped the password and did not notice it
as you can imagine i was very upset and logged onto a guest and tried to consult an imm
at the time i thought that the password had been changed by my friend
and i told the imm just that ( i was unaware of the imms name at the time)
however i did not get the help i needed instead i found that i was in fact going to be sitebanned
the reason for this site ban was a piece of gear on one of my alts
it had been aparently found by my main char in a box
i checked the gear once or twice an thought to myself hey this is a fairly nice piece of gear
i then placed it back in the box and picked it up with my alt
this caused choc (the imm i was talking to )
to site ban my school where i play durring the day
through this whole encounter choc's single minded purpose it seemed
was to find some thing that i had done wrong in the recent past
as further reason to site ban me he brought up a preivious pkiller whos actions have long since been forgoten
as salt in an open wound my passwords were not changed so i could log in
the only way i have been able to log in on arcane is from pure luck
the only thing that i got when i tried to get help with my chars was to be picked at
because of my past mistakes
if anyone else feels that he has abused his comand as an admin
or has any comments pls apend i would love to hear your feelings on this matter

I know Arcane in rl, and I know what goes on and what hes up to when
he plays Legend most of the time, and hearing of this incident, I
feel that Choc stepped over the line for something trivial.

something clearly unintentional.

If you feel you've been treated wrongly by an immortal, the proper
procedure is to appeal to that immortal's departmenthead, or in the
case of Chocorua (who is a departmenthead himself), to Kaige.
Bringing things up on boards like this is most likely to just bring
you further grievance in the form of flaming and rumor monging
which in the long run does nothing but create more trouble for every

I'm not gonna comment on the technicalities of this issue, and what I'm
gonna say is, have Chocorua done anything to improve the LegendMUD

Enough Choc bashing, pick someone new.

I just want everyone to know that my intent was not to bash Choc.
To quote a possible future append, "I was only doing what was best
for the mud." And dont get me wrong, I am not necessarily saying
he was right or wrong, I just think that the way he handled it was
And that is my point.. I just think that some of the immortals
think of Legendmud as another job. And most of the administrators
think that having a good relationship with the playerbase is
left up to the PR Department.
And that is the point I am trying to get across.

'Most of the administrators' really is a rather small number of people.
There are five of us total. Three of us are also PR. Does that mean that
Chocorua and myself constitute 'most' of the administrators? In that case,
since when is 2 more than 3?

Haha, that's it Kae, misdirection!! It always worked for me ;)

Actually, I just meant to turn back the accusation that most of the
admin staff is leaving player relations to the PR staff. Yes, it's true.
Cos most of the admin staff IS PR.

I would tend to agree that
"administration" is a word that is pre-defined as not such a good
thing, but I would also have to say that some imms in power don't
deserve it, because they abuse it... and if you all fail to see this
then maybe you should take a step back for just a minute... and
by some, I mean one or two

As a retired and therefore ineffectual presence I felt I really had to
respond to this post, because its not only Chocorua its a good portion
of the immortals on this mud, who treat their position as a way to remove
anyone they dont personally like, im not going to back it up with evidence
because theres no point, this post and all before it will likely be killed
before they are even seriously read by anyone with any degree of power to
change this place.
But on the off chance, there have been a lot of people like me who have
left this place simply because the attitudes of the immortals have gone
from excited and interested to bitter and dominating, who would really
stay in such a place where happiness is so scarce.
Creako, enjoyed pissing in your cornflakes one last time.

God. Choc is God, dont ever forget it either.

i didnt want to name specifics, but rather, just
include a majority of certains imms, that even include imms that no longer
exist in the department.

Okay, from what I hear, you, Arcane, pulled a stupid and grabbed a piece
of gear your alt touched. It's in a help file, probably listed in
'help rules' or something to that effect. If you've been playing here
long enough to have alts, then you'd know by now that you broke the
rules, and that's grounds for sitebanning. As for the password thing,
can't help you there.
Grow a brain, and don't start flame wars on the boards about Imms.
Gets really old, and really annoying. Imms do their bloody jobs, and
be bloody glad they do.

From: clears throat
Firstly -- Choc is here to enforce the rules, no? Am I wrong?
Even if you made an honest mistake, Xplay is considered a pretty serious
offense, and in my experience, it gets punished whenever and wherever it's found:
without exception. The minute they start making exceptions for you, they have
to start making exceptions for the whole damn MUD -- and that would be a
bloody mess, don't you agree?
I can see how Arcane would be upset -- yes, the situation really sucks,
but posting to a board that you're been wronged isn't going to do much
but create spam.
From: displays shining example
Secondly -- is there any way we could pick a different Imm to pick on now?
Laughing silently at you all,

Maybe you could try and not be such a negative bitch all
the time, Masha.

I thought this was going to be about chocolate.
