Over the past week, the druids grove channel has been invaded should I say this..immature people. Something needs to be done as it's gotten out of control..between people from Drinal (No offense if you are from drinal and aren't a part of it), and's just all around unpleasent to be in the channel. I would like something it is a major problem and now an everyday occurance.

07-09-2003, 07:49 PM
Should be a few people with Ops in there, around what time does it usually happen? (with timezone pls)

07-09-2003, 07:51 PM
I haven't been in the channel myself so can't really say but if chat mods ask someone to leave and they don't you can petition and /report. GM's have been cracking down and handing out bannings on serverwide and general chat channel spammers.

Has happened several times over the last few weeks on my server.

07-09-2003, 08:08 PM
Usually happens during PST hours. My /ignore list is getting full. Been /reporting and /petitioning the worst offenders. Not sure what else to do.

I like the monklybusiness system. Getting into the sensei channel and staying there requires good behaviour at all times. Each server has a warden who you have to ask for the password who will confirm your level and try to be sure your not a complete tool. There's still a monklybusiness channel open to all but the sensei channel is kept sane.

I dont normally join the druidsgrove channel when I am raiding (and that seems to be all the time) due to too many channels being open and then the possibility of channel lag when I cannot afford it, but I heard about this person in the druid channel acting really ignorant and so i joined and he was from drinal (my server).

Personally I found it really annoying and only stayed in the channel to see what would happen to the person. I hope everyone isnt just automatically ignoring all drinalians as I know its only a select group that is causing this and unfortunately the only real thing you can do is petition them.

Stormhaven - talk to me in game or email me

07-10-2003, 03:05 AM
Well PST is after I log....I was wondering what it was all about because im on daily and hadn't seen anything.

SoE also have yet to address the permi banning problem with channels this needs to be done.


07-10-2003, 03:38 AM
I am on Drinal, do you have any names of who the asshats are?

07-10-2003, 06:14 AM
This is what I've got...

Ignored94=drinal.caribou - Petitioned for inapproriate language. /report being brought up to GM's
Ignored96=sullon.elderbrother - Cawk
Ignored97=seventh.kingcaca - Cawk
Ignored98=drinal.kaelvan - friend of Cawk
Ignored99=drinal.cawk - Mass Petitioned already. Hasn't shown up in a while, at least while I've been online

I've only petitioned the ones who have used inappropriate language or have been royal pains. I suspect most of the chat spammers are friends of Cawk and are doing their own wannabe @#%$ on serverwide.druidsgrove ... But I've been getting some good GM responses concerning chat disruptions so it should only be a matter of time before the spammers lose their accounts.

07-10-2003, 06:44 AM
Hmm grouped with Caribou before, was a nice enough guy but one of those sarcastic /ooc people in zone.

NO heals for JOO!

07-10-2003, 07:26 AM
It's late night Central... probably past 10 PM. Although a lot of stuff happened about 8-9 PM last night (I remember because I had to leave the channel so I didn't miss ch chain messages). Very annoying. I don't like having to leave the channel.

*edit* I'm also volunteering to be an op. I would do my best to keep it clean.

07-10-2003, 07:56 AM
Last time someone spammed mage serverwide chat, the guide *basicly* told me to go commit an unnatural act with myself, good luck actally getting them banned.

07-10-2003, 08:02 AM
Well guides are useless, we all know that. You have to get GMs to get anything done. We've had spammers in our chats and the lead gm on our server entered our chat to watch them, then booted and handed out account warnings.

Several (atleast 5-6) others on my server were just banned for 3 days for spamming another serverwide channel. So, it does happen.

You have the quote wrong, it's like this:

Spamming and basic harrassment is against the EULA, UELA, whatever, you know what i mean...

So if some server guide tells you to pleasure yourself next time, e-mail CS, and server GM about this person.

Prob nothing will happen at first, but I would think they would get some kind of warning. No excuse for that crap, unless you were not so kind in the way you petitioned lol

07-10-2003, 10:50 AM
So what kind of normal chat goes on in the serverwide druid channel? I never tune in myself. Can't say I've bumped into those people before on Drinal either.

Not sure why but the few times I've played on Quellious the atmosphere seemed more laid back then on Drinal.

07-10-2003, 11:17 AM
Druid channel is usually first with Time item links (thanks Sobe). There are usually enough druids who can give practical advise on hunting spots, spell information, powerleveling zones, fair prices on items, etc. Discussions range from rants about how flummoxed Rallos Zek is to which zones are best for foraging mushrooms for baking. Levels range from early 50's to lots of 65's (newbies don't really know to log on).

Overall it is(was) a very mature and enlightend chat channel. These kids are getting their jollys off on making people leave the community. While I believe that everyone is entitled to say what they feel, I don't enjoy getting my chain pulled for no other reason than to pull it.

07-10-2003, 11:33 AM
I posted something to the Drinal message forum about it. Hope it helps... then again, it might Backfire and bring out more losers. Then again, you can always /report them and it might end up getting them banned and EQ will be minus a few more ijits. Overall a win.

Apparently Cawk = Caribou

So it looks like most of your grief is just coming from one person.

07-10-2003, 12:48 PM
Keep your logs if you normally log chat. I might need them one day.

07-10-2003, 12:54 PM

Go back stab them!

07-10-2003, 01:45 PM
This has been a problem on and off. Cawk has made my ignore list for sure, as have a few others. I'm on PST and its usually around 9pm - 2am.

I'd love to see something similar to the sensei channel that monkly-business has. I'll even volunteer to be the "warden" for Tholuxe Paells.

Just smack em in the back of the head. They are probably acting out. Too many jackasses in the game...must...go...on.

Must...not...committ...jackass genocide.

07-10-2003, 03:53 PM
This is Ozst from Drinal, First off we werent even spamming. Second off we didnt even start it. Third off quit being babies!! I joined the channel because i was told people in the druid channel were being wads and telling people to stop spamming even tho they werent. Half of you dont know the emaning of spam, dont go and cry when 2 lines of text "flood" your chat screen, are channels no longer allowed to be talked in? wtf!? The druids in that channel then went on claiming we would never see high end game, retarded claim seeing as we were sitting in plane of fire at the time. You complain about swearing yet the filter is there, you complain about spam even though ignore is there, its what theyre used for! And this isnt a F*cking war, i dont know wtf your trying to make of it. Stop being retarded and stop crying about useless Sh*t. And Oaker, F*ck you for calling us asshats

Ozst signing out

Sorry, Asshat, but its a private channel. Thats what the PW means. If we don't want your dumb asses there, then to f*cking bad!

07-10-2003, 04:40 PM
Oszt, grow up, please.

07-10-2003, 04:56 PM
Edit: Thats a good way to get yourself banned from these boards too - Tils

07-10-2003, 05:02 PM

This is going to be fun.

I just wish I could see it.

07-10-2003, 05:16 PM
I have most of them on a /log from me wouldn't be useful ) And they are in the channel clue if they're saying a word though )

07-10-2003, 06:41 PM
Hmm.. any chance of an IP address for the spammer being posted?

07-10-2003, 06:48 PM
I don't even go in the channel, and I already don't like this yoker. He's a yoker because he's not grown enough to be a joker.

07-10-2003, 09:02 PM
How about moderating the channel, i.e. use the ;moderate command and give voice to people as they log into it. Or silence the Drinal ijits? But then you have to have people you trust moderating it 24 hours a day. Blah.

Type /chat help and you'll see how to do it.

07-11-2003, 01:40 AM
Sepharis you might be able to get away with it online for a small amount of time but youll soon learn or be banned from EQ by a GM.

Just because the server wide channels have a flaw in them atm (not being able to permi ban kids) doesnt mean you will get away with it forever.

Youll also most likely be banned from this board if you keep up your personal comments although im sure you wont care anyway.

If this idiot is claiming to be in Fire, then he might be guilded. Most guild leaders don't like their "special children" causing too many problems. Might someone on drinal talk to his GL and get him shut up?

Maybe he might care then.~

07-11-2003, 05:24 AM
Several druids keep sending me tells asking me to "moderate" the Drinal druids.

No thanks!

I join the druid channel once in a while first off and when I do join it, it is in a tiny window down at the bottem of my screen. Once in a while something will catch my eye and I'll participate. Once in a great while something funny or interesting will happen and I'll share it.

It's a fun place to link new trinkets. However, it does become seemly useless when the same trinket is linked every few minutes =P. ie. That Elemental Warrior BP.

For the most part it's a quiet channel. A place to ask questions and a place that seems to enjoy sharing info. Myself, I'm not going to answer questions like "How to do you kill RZtW?" but I will answer very specific questions like, "where exactly do you fight RZtW?". Another example is the ongoing converstaion about the bugged Spider pops in Plane of Air. Being able to ask and confirm that this happens across multiple servers is what I call *USEFULL* channel conversations. The channel has many different usefull topics as already mentioned above.

Anyway, back to the original topic of my post. No I will not even in the smallest way attempt to "moderate" the other druids and Kaelvan (the Necro) that seem to wish to be less then savory in the channel. Ignoring them IMO is the best practice for this type of behavior anyway. It is attention they seek. Once they find they do not obtain this attention they will go away. Until then I make good use of ignore. I also have no problem with taking things to cross server tells for topics that 2 people wish to go into greater detail but have no need of blasting out to the multitude of people in the channel.

Anyway, I hope none have ever been offended by my friendly banter at times in the druid channel. Going off on flags that one night was nothing more then some tongue in cheek joking from the point of view of a Guildleader (me) having to do something completely boring for the nth time. Was it Grummus? I forget what it was... but, many people took my joking, a bit personal so I just dropped the conversation. oh well. =P

07-11-2003, 05:48 AM
LOL Osz, I dont even know you, but if the hat fits, wear it bro.

If you were doing nothing wrong, then calm down and laugh it off and explain your side. The wasy your getting all worked up shows that you were prob going there to spam and cause trouble.

If not, then oh well, you got nada to worry about. Even if you were, you prob have nothing to worry about, other than being an asshat.

And Sobe, I apologize for my confusing replies last night, at first I had no clue who you were or what you were talking about until I realized (lighbulb) Sobe and then I went ot read what I didnt see on the server boards and here.:)

07-11-2003, 05:52 AM
Well, this is a wonderful thread to read on a Friday.
Perhaps it can go to Unkempt?

07-13-2003, 05:52 PM
Yup this is what I am talking about. God damn drinal spammers!

07-14-2003, 04:12 AM
They weren't in the channel last night iirc. I will do a /log when they on next time and start spamming.

07-14-2003, 04:20 AM
Names of other spammers:


07-14-2003, 08:48 AM
It's a shame when you put someone on ignore it just doesn't get everything from their IP address.

07-14-2003, 01:00 PM
Out of nowhere:

[Mon Jul 14 17:52:53 2003] drinal.Gallas tells serverwide.druidsgrove:3, 'semicolonINVITE <name>'
[Mon Jul 14 17:53:15 2003] drinal.Gallas tells serverwide.druidsgrove:3, 'or just semicolonOPADD Gallas and I'll do it if u want'


07-15-2003, 02:38 AM
You know what's funny... some of them aren't even druids.

Ozst, you know the hat fits... fits REAL well.

As for Caribou, yeah he's been /petitioned many a time I would expect.

I've never even heard of the channel.

07-23-2003, 11:34 PM
Haha, I just find it funny that Noliniel puts me on that list of "spammers" when I've probably answered over 30 questions she/he has asked in that chat channel, and since he/she responds I take it I'm not on ignore. Oh, and please post on the boards at, Flame Forums, "Drinal Idiots at Large" is the thead, it needs some spiceing up :)

Recently I've barely even spoken in the channel when I'm in it, all I really do is answer people's questions. Quite the spammer indeed.


P.S. - You have some turncoats amongst you my friends; back when I was joking around with people in the channel I recieved some tells saying they thought I was funny and were glad I spiced it up. Off with their heads eh?
