The OOC chatter about IC events needs to stop. If you are doing it, then you are ruining the game. Not just for yourself, but for everyone else. Just so we are absolutely clear on what is characterized as IC info I will lay it out:
When something happens to you.
When something happens to someone else.
When someone kills you.
When you kill someone else.
When you plan to kill someone else.
When you go clone.
When you go light.
When you make money.
When you spend money.
When you leave your cube.
When you enter your cube.
When you eat.
When you shower.
When you buy something.
When you sell something.
When you see someone.
When someone see's you.
Etc, etc, etc.
If someone starts to talk about something thats IC, you need to ask them to stop. If you don't then you are part of the problem. You need to report them to an admin, so we can get people to STOP.
I repeat, it is ruining the game. Not just for you, but for everyone else. We are all friends, and since we are friends we like to talk about Sindome. That's fine, talk about features you might like, or features you don't like, talk about the THEME and why it's cool, or what you don't like about it. Talk about this post and how annoying I am for making it.
BUT DO NOT TALK ABOUT SPECIFICS. Do not mention your character, who they are, or what they like, or what you WANT to do with them. That's right, not even future plans or ambitions that you MAY or MAY NOT actually do. It's IC info. Get off of Skype, get off of AIM, and go to the Drome, or some other bar and have these conversations IN CHARACTER where they belong.
This is not the first time I have posted about this. I already know some of the people that have been spreading IC info through OOC means. I will be asking you personally to stop. It is not a request.
This includes GMs. Do not talk to GMs about IC things in real life or over Skype or on the phone, or via e-mail or AIM. Talk to them about it IN GAME over xhelp. I know that we all talk about things in person, and when it's a GM it seems like it's okay, but we've decided that should stop because it sets a bad example. If you want to talk to a GM about IC things, then please do it over xhelp.
If you have a problem and do not want to talk about it over xhelp, then that means it's a personal problem not relating to IC events and you can feel free to contact a GM personally.
Also, many problems are caused by people talking to other players about problems they have with GMs or with other players or with the game in general, or with things that happened or didn't happen ICly. This builds a wall between GMs and players and dilutes the truth. Other players get mad FOR you. If you have a problem, do not take it up with another player, take it up with an Admin. That is what we are here for.
