Standardized snooping.

Postby Thrand » Sun Dec 25, 2005 12:45 am

As you know there seems to be no plan by the gods
to end the inane monotny of skill practice. It seems
absurd to me that it is okay to bot as long as you are
at the keys, but since it is I take full advantage of it.
I would just like to extend my botting to include
any response to snooping gods so I can watch my movies,
play my games and/or stare at my navel while I practice.
So could you settle on a question to be asked periodically
of a suspected afk botter?

Example
* says I am the all powerful * are you botting and also afk?
Then I will respond Hi * I am botting but not afk.
This way the whole encounter could be automated.

I do not think that anyone would abuse this.

I think the point is that you're supposed to be paying attention.

There is a plan by the gods to end the inane monotny [sp] of skill practice.

Until then, stop botting.

'Until then, stop botting. '

Ah as per the rules I take it you mean
be at the keys while you are botting.
Which I am.

My previous post on this matter, was of course
sarcasm....

Gods with the ability to snoop do not do so without every god logged in seeing them do it.

On another note, almost all ways that skills are practiced send some type of report to the admins. When they see something horribly repetative, they check to see if someone is at the keys, thus eliminating the need in its entirety for snoop. This tool was implemented to allow lower level gods and all other gods the ability to see what someone is physically doing without watching their private port.

If you are worried about snooping, stop. Every snoop command is reviewed and questioned and logged. This way, nobody does it without *extreme* reason. We simply don't care enough about what people say or do in private communications to want to watch it. If we did care to that level, none of us would still be on staff as these types of people tend to burn out *very* quickly.

I realize the initial post was partially in jest, but, I thought this might help clarify what is what with us.

So, in short... shrug. Believe what you gotta or wanna. I know you all will anyway :)

I wish I was cool enough to have gods snoop.

If any of you get bored, you can snoop me. I don't care.

Well actually, this whole mud is just an elaborate front that allows the NSA to snoop on the private conversations between Abbayarra and Nilan. Shev told me this last night after a few too many egg nogs. I am convinced of its truthfulness.

With all this talk about snoop, I wondered when the ludacris lyrics would follow ;(

Ohl you're packed and you're stacked
Especially in the back
Brotha wanna thank your motha for a butt like that
Gimme some fries with that shake-shake boobie
If looks could kill, you would be an uzi
Or a shotgun, bang
What's up with that thang
I wanna know, how does it hang
Straight up, wait up, hold up, mista lova
Like Prince said, you're a sexy motha
Wellll, I like 'em real wild
B-boy style, by the mile
Smooth black skin with a smile
Bright as the sun, I wanna have some fun
Come and give me some of that yum yum chocolate chip
Honey dipped
Can I get a scoop
Baby take a ride in my coupe
You make me wanna snoop

Snoop-a-doop, snoop-a-doop, snoop-a-doop-a-doop-a-doop
Gormal tells you 'im a dwarven onion'
Gormal tells you 'always another beer-soaked layer'

I must apologize to all the players.
I do mass snooping.
I can't help it. It’s like watching TV and flipping through the channels to see what’s on.
'Hrm.. soap opera'
*click*
*mutter*
'Another soap opera'
*click*
'Ooo.. porn! OMG, you can do that? Err..
*click*
'Oh, this is interesting.. a new Survivor type show!'


Of course I'm just joking, I've only ever snooped someone when they wanted to show me something or when I've followed along with zone groups and wanted to see what was going on in gsay, and the person was asked if it was ok if I snooped them through the zone.

Heh,
I've been snooped before by Mystra and other gods. It does not bother me. I"m hurt Nilan, you may not know my goodie illusi Abbayarra but we've grouped before with evils.
