Internal Affairs: Where did VindicatorIII go?

cabLecar gaL: he is brb for a bit

cabLecar gaL: he will be back

CeeCee: Don't know IA he said brb and he hasen't come back yet

Internal Affairs: Very strange

Internal Affairs: Did he sign off?

Internal Affairs: Spreading some welcome back macros ehy lol?

CeeCee: lol IA

VindicatorIII: You are now warned

Internal Affairs: why what did I do???

Immigration Officer: You have been ejected from awgate

After being ejected, I had no idea why. I didn't break ANY guidelines, =

Telegramming her again resulted in no such luck. I, honestly, have no =

yesterday in the gate with Craig, but I am not sure. I am very =

Err...I'm not sure you read my last post ???

I'm certainly taking an active part in these newsgroups now - stumbling at
first I admit, but trying and taking part all the same.

I suggest you read my last post - trust me, this issue has already made the
rounds and is being looked into by various members of staff here -
discrimination of *any* kind will never be tolerated, and also states such
in our charter and world rules.

If any on of the GK volunteers are ever found to be in error in this kind of
a circumstance, then I doa ssure everyone that steps will be taken - but,a s
I said before, it seems there is some ambiguity in the information. I dont
know, I'm not investigating it - I'm just telling you that it is being done.

We do try to make sure that things like this dont happens you know =P

FYI Weekend discrimination issue.

Feb 13, 2001, 2:44am
[View Quote] That statement there refers to your subsequent ejection - not your friends.

As I said before, the situation is resolved, and it has been amicably ended,
I really dont think it needs to be dragged out into something its not - and
it is not a case of discrimination from all accounts, several staff members
here have investigated it, and the facts have been confirmed as to what
happened.

Case closed. Let it lie my friend, there are no bigots here - as a firm,
personal supporter of gay civil rights, I'll tell you right now that as
long as I have any influence in investigating this kind of thing, then it
will be pursued to the fullest.

Please do not feel humiliated in any way, there was an error, you have
atoned, you have told your side of the story, and indeed posted the letter
that you wrote to the GK's to this, a public newsgroup. A very mature, and
reasonable response.

Also, you are to be commended for standing up to what you believed in in the
first place - and that was that you believed that someone was discriminated
against by another individual, merely for their sexual orientation. It is
not fault of yours that you were mis-lead, and that kind of thing can happen
to anyone - as anyone else here, will also tell you.

For standing up like that, you have my respect completely - and I am sure I
speak for almost everyone else here in this newsgroup in that.

Take care

[View Quote] I have absolutly *no* what you are talking about here - I was talking about
the general attitude of citizens to think that aw employees have "hidden
agenda's" and that the whole way they operate is via conspiracy - no need to
be so sensitive - it was a joke, and you never even entered my mind
whatsoever.

Most people that know me, realise that I have a very sarcastic sense of
humour - there is no need to attribute a small joke to yourself, it was
meant to be rather funny actually. Again, I wasnt even in the slightest
refering to you, the situation that you were involved in, or anything of
that matter. You really, need to lighten up a little okay? =)

I was making a joke on the silliness of some attitudes, in order to lighten
things up in here - obviously, aw.com employees are incapable of making
jokes as well as being involved with the Illuminati.

[View Quote] Since January? Hard drives should be defragmented a *minimum* of at least
once per week - especially if they are larger hard drives. I myself defrag
mine every three days on an automatic defrag. You should also scandisk your
computer at least once a week.

Give it a good defrag and see how it goes.

Just a run down


There are some problems, I believe they are associated to the case-sensitive
nature of some ISP's and the fact that the objects are on a Solaris machine.
I'll have to go thorugh tomorrow morning and fix them all up by hand.

The other thing, is I made a typo on the mars avatars - my apologies, it
will be fixed first thing in the morning.

Pollen is now open for building - with all of its flaws =)

Sure, there are problems with alot of objects, in alot of worlds - I'm sure
that cubed (I think thats it name) also has its share of problem objects
eep, *every* world does. I think perhaps you strive too much for perfection,
when you must realise that this stuff is built by humans, and sometimes have
human error, also, alot of the objects were built a long, long time ago, and
things have advanced alot since then in terms of graphics. Remember also,
there are limited people at the company, and limited things we can all do -
we dont have a million man hours every day to do every single thing. I
actually do all of this stuff in some of the free time that I do have - I
spend most of my day doing my actual tech support, because there is a huge
user base out there, and let me tell you it is a large task keeping
everything running smoothly for the users. Also, we have alot of things
going on here, and over the next few months you will find out what some of
our bigger projects are, and they will benefit everybody - believe me when I
say you will all be pleasantly surprised by some of the things in the works
this year.

But, I *am* doing what *I* can, and, I cannot see the harm in asking the
community for input on these issues - thats what everyone wanted isnt it ?
So, I ask, I find out, I get myself up to speed on what are the concerns,

there is someone doing something about the outstanding issues, its just
going to take me some time - Alphaworld wasnt built in a day you know....

Trust me man, we *are* trying to implement better ways of doing this stuff.
Havnt you noticed the stuff we implemented with trial worlds already ?
Probably not - sign up for a trial world, it gets created, built and started
within ten seconds of the request. You can request, then go log straight
into your trial world.

We are trying to do more of these automated kinds of things, they are just
taking time to roll out - but, they are coming. The new world server really
helps.

Stupid newbie tricks

Exactly - it *is* laughable, but, do you know how many newbie I get every
week who are tricked into something like that?

You can say it a hundred times, you can post it, put it in helpfiles, and
everything, but people still get deceived.....so I ahd to put something
right in peoples faces - dealing with people that are "hacked" is one of the
parts of the job that I really dislike, because I have to actually explain
to them that someone they trusted really was only out to get them.

So..thus the warnings - I hope they help those kinds of people.

[View Quote] Illuminti is already a collectors card game, and it was out way before
magic, and is, imho a much much more interesting game that magic - which
just went way too commercial =)

Its a Steve Jackson game - same guy that bought you alot of the fighting
fantasy books and things like car wars and such....it even has a set of card
for the Church of the Subgenius , its great =)

So there is nothing at all then?

Well, thanks for your time - oh, and at this point in time,t he software
wouldnt exist without the company - so, does that mean you think that the
one good thing that AWCI is keep this software running 24/7, maintains it
for your use, keeps it floating ?

Dont be such a hippocrite =P

I'm not sure. Its kind of moot anyways - you guys dont think that we know
that we dont in order to grow, even having a high world price is prohibitive
to gettting alrger populations? I wont say much more, but I will throw a
hint at you all to make you think - imagine if everyone when signing up for
the web, got their own small website.

Yep, it is good that Roland does those.

I think I'm pretty good at it, I get 98% of peoples problems solved =)

Its a good idea, and me and Flagg have been talking about this kind of thing
for a while...we'll see what we can come up with...

*Sihg* I believe I did make myself rather clear..the majority of users dont
need to know every little technical detail when something is going on, but
there are some, alot of you included, that do. So, I put a short message on
the website, and I commented to all of you...

...it doesnt amtter, there willbe a full reporting news area on the new
aw.com site, so the point is moot.

> Anyway, when's this new website coming? Sounds like it's going to have
lots of stuff on it.

The first part, will probably be up around July, it has a complete new style
, very much slimmed down and more corporate in feel, with a tech support
database, easier navigation and a couple other things, like the news and
such...

....then, once thats up, I begin work on my.activeworlds.com

...but thats not something I can talk about at the moment =)

It doesnt matter, your hell bent on disagreeing and putting me down at every
avenue you get, and your an "anti-cof"er, so nothing I say matters , I could
win a million dollars and you would probably still doubt everythintg I
said, merely because I work for them.

Its a shame some people have such closed minded attitudes. All I asked was
what have we done right, and I know for a fact there are ALOT of things we
HAVE done right - your saying there are none, well, its utterly ludicrous,
so I'm not even going to bother conversing with you anymore on this matter.

*shrugs*
