No trophy speculation in /greeter chat Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

It has been confirmed to me by Clotho that speculation about trophy triggers is not permitted in /greeter chat. The one proper place for trophy speculation is the TTQ&A thread. People asking questions about trophies in /greeter chat will be referred to the YPPedia page and the trophy speculation thread, and repeat offenders will be /complained to let the OMs sort it out.

Yes, I know that Steam has published trophy triggers for many common trophies, but it is setting the wrong example if we reveal one trophy in another place; others will assume that any trophy is fair game, and not all the trophies are published on Steam, or even known for sure.

A couple of us have held this view for some time, and these are the instructions from the Ocean Master.

I kinda wish they would go back to the old greeter system because this one is evidently broken. OOO, you know, Greeter and Greenie both start with "g" but their meaning is entirely different.

I was being a tad flippant, but yuh, Ik. I remember having to read a document then do some sort of acknowledgement of it before I could be a greeter :o

Some of us have avoided turning on greeter for years, and not because of the greenies. ;)

Avoiding the greenies with pink names? I know that's my reason.

once a month when a greenie actually needs help, I'd rather it wasn't one of those people that received the tell.

Don't pay any attention to that, this is official super serious greeter business here, please step aside and let the professional work.

Trophy speculation has always been confined to the trophy speculation thread. I don't think I've read anywhere that says otherwise, so I don't understand the confusion here.

On to more pressing matters


So someone asked the other day what you needed to Bnav with the navy in greeter chat.

Uhmm...

Did you become a greeter by playing poker for 6 months O_o

I think navigation at... broad? I dunno, I would have to look it up. That was actually a legitimate use of greeter chat, assuming a greenie was asking him that question. Yes, he could have looked it up on the YPPedia, fair enough, but still it's one of the better uses of greeter chat.

I'm sorry, was there something recently about someone being snarky and condescending that you didn't pay attention to?

So funny to watch the totally anal greeters squirm, that's why I turn on greeter half the time.

They forget this game is about having fun and try only to keep order/ records in very strict compliance most of the time they're on this game/ forum.

Sure you need order, people following the rules, and not totally abusing the greeter chat but keep in mind you do need a little chaos or something to laugh at every once in awhile.

Unless you're a totally anal greeter that is ^^

The thing is, OOO set the rules of engagement for /gr, and those rules clearly state no fun allowed (and also it's not for answering questions that you have). I'd be happy to make it more of a chatty channel but that's not what we're allowed to do there. Better to get a reminder from an 'anal' greeter than attract the wrath of the OM on duty!

It's not really about anal greeters being chat police. It is about the way some things are handled. For example:

Asking a non-greenie question on greeter, for your own benefit, and requesting answers by /tell. That's fine. Having a full-on conversation on why Admiral is paved and who's the one to blame, is not OK.
