I guess that might be a possibility, im normally cautious of who I allow to invite me to FL, but never know could have been posing as some trader or something I guess.

You can add anyone to your vehicle guest list without asking permission. Up to 500 people.

I used to see something similar tp runs.

A "noob" sets up a team and then asks to be taken from one tp to another, the two I did were argo all the way the loot was setup as you described with queued loot.

What they didn't know was that I never hunt on tp runs, there's nothing I hate more than waiting for someone who's mining or hunting on the way as I want to get them over with asap, so they had 30 minutes of dodging every red dot on radar :laugh: they logged out as soon as we got close to the destination.

It would be nice to know who's friend list I'm on though and to remove myself if I wanted to.

OMG that would be so nice, a few people I made the mistake and let them add me, now they bug the hell out of me like begging and crap.

You can invite any avatar to join a team by operating directly on the avatar that you want to invite.

Got my reply from Support the other day

Support MA-language translation:

They are marked, but we won't do anything. Maybe if 10-20 other people make support-cases, and it starts costing us money, we might consider acting on it, sometime, when we feel like it one day, and we can find somebody to do something. (In other words, 'nothing happens').

please pm me his full name too, and as others said MA employees might not spell every single word or phrase right every time but would sure be a lot better then this guy that you had to think twice to get what he was trying to say sometimes lol

I would still think that impersonation a person from the company that runs the universe in a matter like this would mean this ava are banned for all future, but then ofc we have the problem with his/hers second or 23rd ava

Maybe, Maybe not, I was not expecting to be told exactly what was going to happen to this guy, but yea it would be nice to hear, " This guy sucks ass, and he will be Banned Banned and then Banned again ", but we all know that is not going to happen, I am sure he got a warning.

I really think there should be away to remove myself from some one elses FriendsList or something. The block option is nice on PM but it should be forever not just each session.

Kinda think this whole thing is getting funny so if anyone cares Ill go ahead and continue to post as he bugs me, if not then I guess well just end this whole thing :)

Yes i agree you should be able to remove yourself from someones list or block them. Perhaps MA will look into this for the future. Unfortunatley the guy sounds very young and perhaps given time he might reflect on how silly hes been. Just a quick appology here would go a long way :)

ty for posting Gionni

""2010-10-12 14:40:37 [FROM: Sin] it was a try , not a scam""

If I attempt to rob, murder, räpe, steal and anything etc illegal, and failed, its ok, because its a try.

hum.... clever boy ;) thumbs up for ya.

I believe the technical term is:

"as sharp as a bag of wet ice".

But yeah. Given the command of language, I have wonder if the person behind the avatar has English as a second language, or is a kid. I'm hoping it's the latter as it would be sad for an adult to be that plain stupid.

More than likely, english is second language, although in any language the cat didn't seem too bright. (i.e. "As bright as a broken lamp" :D )

The "Sharp as a Bowling Ball" reference was a borrowed quote from a true American hero: Foghorn Leghorn.


Bottom left of a person's post, the "star" of david icon .
Doh....Didn't look at that side.

Dunno about the technical terminology but I think bowling ball would be more sarcastic in this context than bag of ice ... I have seen some pretty sharp ice in my time lol

BTW... the correct saying is - "Sharp as a sack of wet mice."

Well my response from Support was very polite and professional. I was however encouraged not to continue to have conversations with this person, it was stated also that it sounded like I might have been provoking him :scratch2: Well maybe, maybe not, well ok maybe a little I guess. Support requested for the Avatars full name so of course I sent the name and apologized for provoking him in anyway. I was informed an investigation was being conducted. Overall I am happy with this outcome when it comes to support. Not once did I get any generic response like some other people in other cases. Good job support and +REP to you :D.

reminds me of the "newbie" who needed a trip from PA to billys back in the days
so i said ok, although i found it fairly strange that a newbie knows billys
then he told me he wants to set the team up (newbie? setting team up?)
so i figured out already whats likely going to happen, wasn't disappointed, some kind of random loot rool those days i think
he found out that my mob avoiding skills are pretty good tho, didnt attack any mob at all :D
in billys he left fairly upset :)

I see, thats really the newest popular trick :/ found yesterday one in Sweatcamp.
And this People learn quick lie, the Answers are:

- i didn`t want u to die (yeah sure, rofl)
- i tought you were afk
- i done talking to you
- just leave team

It is really important, that all Beginners know - not all People are friendly and much lie quicker as other can read it
