AJ Vent Server and Beta Guild
Posted 27 July 2008 - 08:59 PM
Hey guys, as promised we now have a vent server up and running. It has a 100 person limit (which we will up if the demand is there). Right now, we created a bunch of generic channels. If you have any ideas for new channels, or would like to request a personal channel, please let us know (Personal channels will be created based on user contributions to the site such as posting, content submissions, etc.). Expect the rules and setup to change as we sort through the issues as we have never tried to run a vent server this big.
Here is how access works. We will have a script continually adding new users based on the order the request access. You must be registered here to get a vent account, and you must request access to get in the queue. This page will allow you to request access, find your initial password, and see where you stand in the queue. The script is only about 95% automated, so if it says Account Creation: Paused, it means new accounts are not being created at the moment. They will be created at a pace of 1 per ~5 seconds, so expect your wait time based on that.
Also, once you have access, if you are interested in helping moderate the vent server, please respond in this thread. People who abuse the vent server can expect action to be taken against their account here.
EDIT: Any feedback on the codec would be greatly appreciated. Is it clear enough, too bandwidth intensive, etc.?
A few of us are now in beta, and we know from the threads many of you are as well. We created a guild, if you are interested in joining just do a /who ArenaJunkies and ask for an invite. We are currently on the Horde PvP Server, but if someone wants to get an Ally guild going, please feel free. We figured this might aid in testing new content and testing the pvp more effectively.

Also first to request access... Says:
"Position in Approval Queue: 1 / 1
Account Creation: Active"
Yet Im not getting anywhere now... no forwarding to a new page for a PW or anything. Problem possibly?

So I assume you can change the password?
edit: nvm I guess it will just be automatic

I believe everyone can change their password, but I am not totally sure how to do it. If not, these should be incredibly secure and impossible to guess.

What I usually do for vents with PWs is in the name of the vent I would add at the end "PW: (password)"
That way I know what it is incase I need it later.

Also, I could probably do some moderating if you want, but I've never moderated Vent before.

yea too bad like 100 other ppl will want to too
Posted 27 July 2008 - 11:12 PM
Tyveris asked people to demonstrate their intent to volunteer to help moderate.

Basically this. 100 people moderating isn't a bad thing as all 100 won't be on at the same time. Just need to figure out the right permissions and I will start flagging people.
