They tried nice, so did some of us, they asked people not to spam about server status, they did use PLEASE, on more than one occasion they begged them to stop, and then they gave up... There is just no stopping "I cant connect" posts.

After saying please 35 times today, I speak for my colleagues when I say that we're all pleased out.

But I can understand why they would do it. Too many people are lazy and post a new thread or ask when it will be up when two posts previous someone asked and got an answer.

To compare the team to SOE isn't fair as we were paying for a product from SOE where as the SWGEMU team is doing this for free and out of their own time so they cant be held to the same standards as SOE. So its completely understandable that some irritation might show when you have lots of people posting/PMing when the server is going to be up when its all available on post #1

But it brings up the question, WHO aren't we supposed to ask?

The SWG developers did not suck because they were jerks, they sucked because they did ****ty things to the game, and then didn't let people speak out.

The emu devs don't want the entire playerbase making threads asking about server status because it takes time away from doing useful work on their part to delete all of the useless threads.

Max did not miss your point.

They don't have to ask "please." They don't have to walk on eggshells.

Jesus Christ.

I would like to point out that I was the one who sugjested the Idea. And for good reason. After the last 3 days of "when will the server be back up" and "I cant get past loading objects" posts, every 5 minutes. It got really tiresome to reply to every one the same way.

Would you prefer that they just didnt reply, and no one replyed to the 15th and above posts about the same subject? Every one on this forum that has explained this has explained it to death.

what do you want? for every one to explain the exact same thing every four new threads? if you dont like the iritation, pls people, start using the God **** search button. It's not just for decoration. and if you dont know how, just go into any section, it doesnt take all that much looking to find a post on this. In fact they are really hard to miss. most have that nice Lock symbol on them. and they are ever 4 to 6 threads. Just look a little.






Edit:
I now restate my request to get a poll going on whether we can just ban any one to lazy to open a thread that says "when will the server be back up" or Cant get past loading object". I really think it would cut down on the posts if you added. DO NOT ASK ABOUT SERVER STATUS, OR YOU WILL BE BANNED

I really think this will be far more efective. LOL

Eh, that's pretty close to how this forum operated almost two years ago or so, and they've kinda changed their mantra. They're seeming to want to skate the line between being direct and being nice, as to not insult people. It's a happy medium, but it's hard to maintain.

I'd be in support of such a policy, but some would argue that those people just don't know how to use the forum correctly, and that's not exactly their fault.

I'd argue that anyone who doesn't know how to use the damn forum shouldn't be here anyway.

Alright, I believe we all understand the need for a statement (which is now removed) about the server status threads. Please or no please, the imperative is the same; people NEED to stop creating threads about it. Post in this one for all it matters, as long as the forums aren't being interrupted by something as minor as a 72 hour downtime.

There need be no further discussion on Tanni's point. It was received and noted, though not quite in line with the sentiment in which our little message was posted. The sentiment was not "hey guys, its starting to get a wee annoying all these threads" it was "stop it. i'm wasting my time sorting this stuff. stop it."

Hey peeps I has a question. Im new to this so bare with me. When I get to login screen it says my password is incorrect. Now is that due to the server being down or is my password really not correct? lol

And correct me if im wrong but the user name and PW is the same as on the forums yes?

Thanks for your time.

They are not talking to one another as of right now. Give it a bit before you try, and as it stands, the servers are not up, so you would not be able to get into the game. They are working on it, so please be patient. When the time comes, you will be informed, through the forums and IRC that the servers are back up, and you will also notice the people disappearing from both as a mad rush to log in will occur.

From what I have read so far, you will still have about, if not more or less, another 24 hours before anything new happens.
