News: *problems

Last Update: Wednesday, May 24 1995

A new newgroup has been created -- *problems -- for the reporting of any problems, technical or personal, that come up in BayMOO.
Two series of events have prompted the creation of this newsgroup: the misuse of @shout, and the misuse of monitoring devices.
@shout should be used only in the case of emergencies. Normally, only wizards use this feature to announce an imminent shutdown, in order to give folks a chance to save their work and make future arrangements with anyone they are talking to.
Monitoring devices -- such as puppets or recorders -- should be used with great care and respect. Attempts to monitor private conversations, without the consent of people in the room, could lead to expulsion from BayMOO.
