Re: Out of game communication policy

Saegrimr, I thought I made it ABUNDANTLY clear what I am and am not asking about in this thread, yet you keep answering a question I'm not asking. This was a problem in the previous thread as well which made is sound awfully like ANY communication is disallowed while logged into a SS13 server. But i...

No, I'm saying that the three of us were wandering independently. The first 20 minutes I was off doing engieborg things, while the other two were literally just wandering around and trying to wear clothes. Then the wormholes came and they both ended up dying.

Re: Out of game communication policy

I'm confused how this could be interpreted any other way. Keep IC and OOC separate. Right, I wasn't asking about that.

Re: Out of game communication policy

The wiki is okay, but only gets you so far. Some uses of the click and drag mechanic aren't well documented, for example. For the evidence in the current case, I think it has been lacking. Most of the evidence seems to be outrage over a couple people in the armory, which didn't require any coordinat...
