*Whispers in the wind*

Last week, the Forums went down, as did the game servers. I keep Dyso in my Favorites list and since I didn't see it light up in Favorites, I assumed the mod was down all the way until mid-week (when I stumbled on the site again). I thought it would've been nice to have a way to know about server status and possible IP changes.

Do you think we could have a Dyso listserv? My thought would be that it was restricted only to outgoing official e-mails from admins. This would keep us appraised as to server down/up's and other major events (e.g. server wipes!). This would also be a nice way to get a heads-up on important Forum posts (e.g. Conrad's new rules), in case we don't view the Forums regularly.

This would sound like a good idea.. but no one wants to be spammed everytime something happens. The forums being down was an unusual circumstance, however, there was mention to what was happening on the in-game bulletin boards, as well as a website to check for updates. As far as the servers being down, no, they actually weren't. They simply moved. And again, unusualy circumstance. Probably the best way is to check with us admins via IM.

*Whispers in the wind*

Point well taken -- I get tons of e-mail and this may have been an unusual circumstance (and I'm sure there were posts about this). However, I'm still thinking that a quick e-mail could be useful for these types of rare occassions. A message should not go out for server resets and such, but maybe for extended downtimes (say when the server is down for a whole day or two) and major changes (such as this move). Also, putting your name on the list would be a voluntary thing. Besides that, would the admins want an IM from every player (by the way, I don't use IM, etc.)? Anyway, I'm not trying to argue, just voice a perspective. This as much as I'll say on this topic, but I'd love to hear everyone's opinion. Thanks for listening.

There used to be a listserv of sorts via the old Yahoo Dyso group ... but that thing went the way of the dinosaurs with the advent of the forums. Considering the amount of spam that came down the pipe from that group if you had it sending you mail ... I'm not sure going back to something like that is such a great idea.

Perhaps we can have a Dyso backup page? Where a DM can post (using NewsPro/Coranto etc) the server status? (only when forums/server aren't available of course)
