Not Pissing Off the Administration

Seems simple, right? Follow the rules, don't be antagonistic. It doesn't take much to keep on our good side. There are, however, some pet peeves that we have that you should be aware of right now.

  1. Sending a tell asking, “Are you there?” and supplying no supplementary information. We usually read our backlogs, and if you give us information as to what you wanted, even if it gets fixed later, we can deal with it.
  2. Sending a tell asking for help on a particular matter, then not telling us when another wizard has helped you. Again, we read our backlogs. If we see that you have had a problem, and we don't see that it has been resolved, we're likely going to worry about it until you tell us what it was and that it got fixed. The smallest of courtesies can keep us happy.
  3. Logging in as Guest just to chat. The Guest account exists so that people can log in and poke around, not so that insults can be slung anonymously. We can look up your IP. Really.
  4. Talking about something when you're asked to stop talking about it. It may have been amusing. It may belong in tells. It doesn't belong on whichever pubilc channel you were just told to stop talking about it on. And, it probably doesn't belong on other public channels either. For the record, the public channels are chat, allies, your guild channel, newbie.
  5. Doing something you've already been suspended for. Really. Repeat offenders give us all a giggle on [wiz], but they make us less sympathetic to you when you actually need our help.
