Hall Monitors

Two posts in two days? I promise, I'm not sick. Hope all is going well for everyone. I'm here today to discuss the Hall Monitors that will be appearing in-game as of tomorrow morning.

From the Patch Notes:

Something we take very seriously at KingsIsle is making sure that the Spiral is a fun and appropriate place for Players of all ages.  We are expanding our current reporting tools for a select group of players who have earned the privilege of being a “Hall Monitor”. This group of players will operate anonymously and anyone claiming to be a Hall Monitor is certainly not one at all. 

These Hall Monitors, who are selected by invitation only, will have the ability to take direct action when they see behavior that violates our Terms of Use. This action includes warning and muting players who circumvent our chat filters. These sanctions will be reviewed by our senior Wizards to ensure the correct action was taken, and may escalate sanctions as necessary. 

Hall Monitors are not to be confused with other player run reporting groups and while we appreciate their initiative, we'll take it from here. We will continue to be diligent to keep the Spiral a clean and safe place for all our young Wizards.

Let's hope that those selected are truly deserving and won't abuse power (and should they be discovered to be abusing the power, that they have action taken against them directly by KingsIsle).

Your Friend Always,
John Lifeglen

Uh, Hello...?

So, hi everyone. Sorry it's been over a month since a left an update here. I've still be fairly active on Twitter, but life has gotten in the way once again. My third year of college is starting to pick up and I've been Beta testing P101 (hence no news of Test Realm antics). I can tell you all that my name for P101 will be Witty John Loughton, and that he'll be a privateer. For more information on that stuff you'll have to check Through the Eyes of a Privateer, though.

I can also tell you all that I'm moderating Pieces of Eight Radio on a regular basis now. And that I bought a Nexus 7 Tablet and love it. I'm contemplating modifying my name on Words with Friends to allow for more people to play. That's up in the air right now.

Anyway, I have class in the morning so I should be turning in soon. Hope to talk to you all soon. And for more information on me, check the sidebar to see about my Twitter shenanigans.

Your Friend Always,
John Lifeglen

Hey there gang! Just wanted to drop everyone a line. The cat is officially out of the bag and Closed Beta has launched...and I'm setting sail for adventure in it! I'm currently keeping on the down low because I don't want everyone to know the awesome name I've chosen for myself yet. Maybe I'll still be John Lifeglen. Maybe I'll be [redacted] or [redacted]. Who knows? You'll all know once things go LIVE! And oh how I can't wait for them to go LIVE! You all are going to absolutely LOVE the new game. Here's a brief summary of my adventures so far.

I started out as a [redacted] on [redacted] talking to [redacted] about [redacted]. I went to talk to [redacted] about [redacted] and [redacted] and met [redacted]. I played in [redacted] and am now in [redacted].*

Welp, that's all for now, folks!

Your Friend in Piracy Always,

*When things go Live I might come back and edit all of the annoying "[redacted]" into what they really should be. Or maybe I'll just post the phrases for you all to fill in the blanks :)
