Hey Everyone -
We love player created items. The biggest set of these types of items in game is clothing. We want to allow you to create as much cool and personalize clothing as possible and part of that is removing it from the game. Up until now this has been a manual task. If a piece of clothing is dumped/incinerated/trashed, it goes to a special place where admin review it and decide if we should keep it around.
This is very very time consuming and the GMs kinda have other things to do... like puppeting! So, we are crowdsourcing it from here on out.
@review-cloth will show you a piece of clothing that is in our 'recycling bin'. It will let you review the messages and help decide if that clothing should be kept or not. Your character is not doing this. YOU the PLAYER are.
There are (at the time of this post) 676 items that need to be reviewed. And we don't think all these items will be reviewed over night. Especially considering that we aren't taking a single persons opinion on things. It's crowdsourcing, so you'll all get to vote, and when a certain threshold is met, the item will either be deleted or moved to the market (or somewhere else, depending on the item).
If you have downtime, please consider reviewing some items.
Once we've gotten through the initial round of items, it will be much easier for us as a community to keep up with the reviews. I've got a handy command that runs and notifies 'Game-Help' if there are items pending review. It runs every 8 hours so it should cover most of the player base, but not be too obtrusive, and it won't show up if there are not items pending review.
There is a handy counter that you are shown after you cast a vote with @review-cloth, which is how many items are remaining for you to review. Don't be daunted by the high number, just review however many you have time to review.
If you encounter any issues, please xhelp! If you have questions on the criteria, please use xgame to ask other players for clarification.
'help @review-cloth' is also a thing and captures most of this post.
Thanks so much for helping!
