    Assuming our power was effectively unlimited (wishful thinking at best), there would be a LOT of bans. I'd write out very clearly what is and isn't tolerated, and all 3rd party program users, dupers, macroers, lamers, and scammers would be permanently banned with no chance of reversal. Systematically, every person guilty of trying to ruin the game would be eliminated because there are LOGS that can be read and checked by someone who isn't too lazy to do it. I'd use my knowledge of transactSQL to write stored procedures to help automate the more mundane tasks and eliminate dupes as they appeared.

    Of course, we all say we would do all these amazing and awesome things, and I'm sure some of us would actually do these things... but lets face it, corruption manages to creep into every facet of our lives despite our best efforts, and I think all but a handful would succumb to it. *YOu also have to look at the constraints KOLA puts on the GMs... I'm sure that's why a lot of these bugs can't be fixed by your average, everyday GM (e.g clan bug, etc.) and have to be left up to KOLA.

    Yeah, I bet a LOT of us would run around and ban every KOXP'er, Arrow Shower hacker, whatever'er... for a while *:wacko: ... with no pay as a GM, you really, really would have to love this game in order to keep up that kind of stuff on a long-term basis, all-the-while repelling that corruption thing... the money to be gained under the table as a GM is alluring to anyone I think...

    But what do I know? *Just the musings of a man... ignore me if you want! *^_^
    I logged in and ran around a little, admiring the unfamiliar view of Adonis Moradon. I ran out across the center bridge and started whacking worms. Around level 3, I had a few things in my inventory so I typed /merchant for the first time and was happy when I sold something. I knew instantly then that I would love this game.

    Now, it is a very different experience logging into the game as a brand new player. Very very few players speak English, there are a lot of noobs sitting down firing arrows at whole spawns of mobs, and prices are pumped so high new players have little hope of getting the gear they need without resorting to Ebay.

    If I had the power to stop it all, don't think for a minute that I wouldn't do it in an instant.

    I will unblock my banned charachter.

    And, try to investigate plenty of other similar cases.

    And, one more...I will try to speak with programers to change use of "Page Up" and "Page Down", to scroll between names/members of party. That will improve speed of selecting ppl in party (specially for priest's, because they can heal or buff much faster).

    And, I almost forget...as GM I will make a money event, and give award to most usefull resser on server.

    p.s.: Ofc, I will have worktime as all other GM's - 3 min/month. :P

    that will already be implemented in firedrake patch.. exept it will be tab instead of page up/down.

    Start patrolling the servers with random n00b chars and GM chars. Write down names and fuck them later. Start building a group of non official constables. Basically keep my GM status secret a let them think I just have few contacts inside K2 that help me out cleaning the server. Couple weeks, server is clean, everyone is happy and "I'm not a GM" so my life doesnt turn into hell.

    On the other hand, setup some basic rules in this forum on how to report cheaters. FRAPS, SS, etc. on the cheaters section following a basic format and letting them know I read this unofficial forum.

    After servers are clean of macroers and blatant cheaters, start pulling Boss events.

    If I have all powers again, start dealing with Customer Support issues too.

    big.......boobies ( :P ):

    "that will already be implemented in firedrake patch.. exept it will be tab instead of page up/down."

    I didn't know that...I write that many months ago in forums (official and this1, but some ppl flame me, like that is bad idea...and even there is no logic (they was too to answer them).
    I still think Page Up/down is better, cause U can switch faster with up/down on list of party members. With Tab u can go only down (I suppose).
    But, nevermind, this is wrong topic for that issue.

    I withdraw, FIRST thing will be unblocking my totally unfair blocked account.

    I'd prolly clean servers... but in the meantime I'd babashop my char, and my relatives' char, and sell uniques so I could buy Guild Wars: Factions and WoW, and CS, and..

    This is my model:

    They need to create a seperate GM class that can only ban players, and nothing else. This way a head GM (internal) for a server can create a team of GM's for each server (externals) with no fear of them doing bad things. All ban reasons are reviewed by the rest of the team and made public. The head GM will make his identity known to all players, along with the identities of all ingame GM's so that players have more chance of reporting cheaters. There will be total transparency in dealing with cheats and the penalty code will be made more strict, and adhered to totally. External GM's will be paid in real money only.

    This model only works with a huge number of GM's to deal with the increased workload. This wont stop the corruption but it will be a lot harder since it will have to come from the HQ.
