courthouse (abuse forum)=lame

Post by originaljustin » Wed Feb 25, 2009 12:15 am

When is the the banning going to stop... it seems like the "administrators" or "game masters" are spending the majority of their time banning players then they are improving TMW. I just looked at the abuse forum and laughed. It just looks like one big joke to me. I would like to here anyone's opinion on that forum.

They aren't developers (save for QOAL, who still does some patches now and then).

Avoiding to waste time with moderation is the reason why most developers do not do game master work. We are "outsourcing" the moderation of the server to trusted users who don't have any skills to contribute to the development. The game masters are doing a good job at keeping the bots and abusers in line so that developers can concentrate on developing without having to worry about jerks destroying the game they are building.

When you do not agree with the way a specific GM or the GM team in general do their work feel free to post your arguments here or contact Bjorn Lindeijer in private.

  • former TMW Pixel artist
  • NOT a game master

Please do not send me any inquiries regarding player accounts on TMW.

How is it a joke when the right people are getting banned? I think the way it is (them being given a second chance with levels being reduced) is fair enough. Why shouldn't botters/abusers be banned?
