Ten gold on "Go to your room!"  Just feels like this one's got to come due sometime...

If I bet on Running with Rusty Scissors, then give rusty scissors to one of the guards and tell them to get to the other end of the warehouse as fast as possible, am I still eligible to win?

No, because you would be wrong.  Double Trouble wins.

No fair on mods betting. But, to be fair, double trouble was a safe bet so should have a pittance of a payout. :-P

I feel like I'm missing something. I thought it was a joke of some sort, so I made a joke. Only now it seems like there is a definite winner. So what are these lost souls?

Re: Who will be the 1,000th Lost Soul?
The Chamber of Lost Souls, which can be found upon your main menu when you log in, is a listing of accounts that have broken various rules on RPoL- for instance, somebody listed under "Double Trouble" got busted with an alternate account (because RPoL accounts are like gobstoppers, you're only ever going to need one), "Go to your room" is minors caught in adult games, etc.

In reply to KaiWriter (msg # 22):

It's a little more than just 'broke various rules', though...these are people whose offenses are so egregious that public notice had to be put somewhere so their GMs can find out why that particular player is no longer participating in the game...usually some form of repeated, deliberate violation of the ToU (underage player either participating in or attempting to participate in adult games, multiple accounts, or becoming aggressively and offensively argumentative with the mods or with jase himself about the site rules...)

It is, occasionally, entertaining to read about people who thought that the rules applied to everyone except them...but, mostly, I keep an eye on it to keep track of whether or not any players in the game I run have been banned, suspended, etc.

Ah, okay... I thought it was just the generic catch-all for that kind of stuff.

I guess you learn something new every day!

Re: Who will be the 1,000th Lost Soul?
There are people who break rules here on a fairly regular basis...using language that shouldn't be used in public threads, posting links to games in threads and forums where they shouldn't, etc etc...most of the time, the mods correct or remove the problem and give a mild warning (I've been the recipient of a few of these through the years...)

Some people just make it a practice to see how many, how often, or how large they can go in breaking the rules...those are the folks who end up the the COLS.  Lost Souls, because they've pushed so far that they're no longer welcome (unless it's the Double Trouble thread and they turned in their own duplicate account voluntarily.  That doesn't happen very often.)  The exception is the 'I Can't Help Myself' thread, which is people who became concerned that they were growing addicted to RPOL and couldn't muster enough willpower to stop...so they requested that their access be denied for a period of time.  That one doesn't happen very often...

In reply to facemaker329 (msg # 26):

Actually people who create duplicate accounts ARE still welcome here, but only with their original account.

The only reason they are listed in CoLS is so that GMs can check for missing players - "Hmmm... SuperBob hasn't logged in for a week, let's see... oh yes, SuperBob was a duplicate account of RegularBob.  So unless RegularBob shows up to claim him, his character will be sidelined/moved to another city/take an arrow in the knee."

Multi-account users only become unwelcome if they keep doing it, or if they combine it with with something else (such as insulting/threatening/swearing at moderators who won't let them keep any of their extra accounts).

Muaadeeb, we're talking about the Chamber of Lost Souls. It's a place to go to see all of the accounts that have been banned for site violations of one sort or another. We're also taking bets (for street kred, it looks like) for which category the 1000th will fall into. Go check it out if you're interested. ;D

In reply to Tyr Hawk (msg # 33):

Any bets now are totally meaningless, since we have passed the 1000th post in the board almost a month ago.

Not that they had any real meaning previously, because many posts record multiple incidents, so the 1000th name in the CoLS was probably posted years ago.

Ahhh... I haven't been paying attention to it in the last 6 months or more (removed it from my list and everything), so I had no idea. I only checked this thread on a whim when Muaadeeb posted. XD
