We could do that if the moderators let the game up for us. Which moderator is posting here? Ron? Or another?

The only option, if you want to continue this game, is to transfer what information you can to a new board, under a new GM.


This what we’re looking for?

I guess it is. Vince? You okay buddy? You taking over? Or trying to recruit a GM?

Which game?  This one?  Everything here is Group 0, which means its visible to everybody.  Once a game is no longer active, it will eventually be removed from the site, but you probably have at least a year to grab what you need from it.

Thank you, is this Ron? Or another moderator?

They're talking about continuing Star Seekers too.

Re: Traveller's Aid Society-3 (OOCs)

It's Ron.

Okay... Star-Seekers looks to be in the same boat as this one.  It has no GM, which means it can't be passed on to anybody.  However it has more posts, which means it's probably going to hang around longer than this one.  The only slight difference is that there are a few threads not in Group 0... but nearly all are accessible to somebody (not always the same somebody).

So same thing as here - grab what you need and set up a new board.

Thanks Ron, I guess we'll try to get a vote together to decide what to do there. I think we're continuing here, but Vince is taking care of Rob's estate right now so he isn't on as much as he usually is.

What's happening? We going to continue here while Vince sets up a new board, or are we going to migrate soon? We can help a bit.

Vince is pretty unhappy with his treatment by the mods, one of them accused him of trying to get into the owners account on this thread. He's pissed, plus he's still going through Rob's estate I think. Patience I guess.

Re: Traveller's Aid Society-3 (OOCs)

In reply to Theodore McFarlane (msg # 719):

Actually, nobody accused him of anything.

However... about half an hour after he joked about resurrecting StarMaster, somebody logged into (only) the two games that LordVince had contacted us about taking over, using StarMaster's account. This person gave LordVince GM status in both games and removed the "sole ownership" flag from the other one.  You can actually see this for yourselves -- if you look at the Cast List, StarMaster apparently logged in to this game near the end of July.

It doesn't matter who did it.  Logging in to somebody else's account, for any reason, is a violation of RPoL's rules.  If we have an idea who did it we don't waste time with an accusation, we just ban their account until they have convinced us that they'll comply with the site rules in future.

Note that Vince's account has not been banned.

Re: Traveller's Aid Society-3 (OOCs)

That certainly explains the radio silence.. funny, and not. :/

Poor Vince, with everything that’s going on.

I’ve debated copying and pasting the threads to a new game, but I couldn’t GM this since I am totally green to Traveller.

     I'm just as puzzled as anyone about this.  Maybe moreso because I didn't take possession of Robs computer until August 1st.  The treatment facility where Rob passed away would not give me the possessions he left behind, there, until I could produce his Death Certificate -- as I was not a Blood Relative nor a Designated Heir.
     Technically, I'm not even the Executor of his estate! He didn't leave a Will. That's why I had to jump through hoops to get his stuff.  I'm just a longtime friend trying to take care of some of his final business.

     Robs computer was physically locked away from just after his death until I got it on August 1st.  I got witnesses & paperwork to prove that.  I don't know what, why, or how the RPoL servers say otherwise.  I can only imagine that doing that would require skills I just don't have.  Nor can I think of anyone I know who could, or would, do that!  Or even WHY they'd do that!

     My "Voodoo" joke was about Rob "Speaking from The Grave" -- I was going to go back through my emails and find the one where he'd said he was concerned about his slow down on the games and wanted to know if I'd help on a couple.  He then created the "Starwolf" persona for me -- even tagged it as "GM" -- but didn't assign me any GM access.
     I mentioned this during a visit with him, and he said that he got tired and hadn't finished the set up.  He died before he got that done.

     Doesn't matter.  I'm done with this shit.  I'm not gonna corrupt all the years of great memories I have from this game arguing with people I neither know nor give a shit about.

     It's been great, Guys.  I will miss you all so much.  I'm hoping we'll cross paths again, in other places.

In reply to Varca Lexand (msg # 722):

So, I guess this is the end then. It has been fun and exciting, Rob was a great StarMaster! It is sad to know I am 'losing' a lot of friends here, as our paths may never cross again. We all lost Rob from this life forever, I had a great love and respect for him though we never physically met, we corresponded through rmail and email quite a bit. I have a great respect for Vince too, for how he is dealing with his loss and all he did for Rob while he was alive, a true and great friend! I'm going to greatly miss the rest of you too, sweet Ingrid, RayJay, Ghent, Kira, Viridian and of course the great Zhouth! A great character with great knowledge, alway there to correct me when I screwed up, which was often! You guys take good care of yourselves and your loved ones, may you all live long and prosper. Hope to see you all again.

Re: Traveller's Aid Society-3 (OOCs)

Was a pleasure for sure, though I don’t see why this would be the end..? Vince will eventually want to get back into something like this once the dust settles and the pain is more distant.

Like I said, I can open a game and transfer some of the main threads, link back to this game as an archive, but someone else would need to GM though.

If we have no one available to GM, maybe we can hunt one down.

Do it! We can always try to recruit a GM. Maybe Varca will reappear after a suitable time. I thought that was the best course to begin with.

Re: Traveller's Aid Society-3 (OOCs)

Okay everyone Ghent has set up a new board for the game, with links back to this one even so we can keep this for quite some time, until the mods finally delete it. He's going to advertise for a new GM once we're all migrated and ready! Sign up Vince, Varca lives on! Ingrid, Zhouth!
