We have rules clearly posted now. I finally finished them yesterday. If you haven't seen them, they are here:
That is now the link shown on the logon window to the server.
Yes, I am working on a modbot. I'm not going to cover the details of what it will do. But, it will be more than a bot that prevents flooding. Certain veteran server users will receive detailed information about the bot when it is finished.
Aki, you are very close to being the pot calling the kettle black.
Aware of that >.<
I think you know a lot about competitive pokemon and I want to encourage your increased participation in the CAP project. But, your recent behavior on the server is not something I want other users to emulate. I don't think you are a "problem user", but you have not been a model citizen either.
That'd be right.
In your OP, you mention "turning over a new leaf and cutting the shit". I would very much like to see you do that.
There are rules I expect the server moderators to follow. I have moderator guidelines that I distribute to all the server mods. I review chat logs every day, and I give feedback to the mods on how they are doing. So far, all the mods have done an excellent job of regulating the madness on the server. I think it is particularly commendable, considering that none of us expected this much traffic when we all "signed up" for the job.
I also think our moderators are one of the best aspects of the server. I regularly receive compliments about the quality of the moderators on the CAP server. They are all friendly, knowledgeable, and competent battlers. When I review the chat logs, I love the general tone of discussion. For the most part it is interesting, casual, and enjoyable. Obviously, our users are the biggest part of that. But, I think the mods set the example for everyone else -- and they do a fantastic job in that regard.
I'm not saying that the mods are not doing a fantastic job, i'm saying that they were being a bit lax because there was no "book" to read from. This should help clear this up.
