Hello everyone. A personal thank you to the creators of R.I.G. and the growing community for like-minded gamers. I posted the message below in the thread on the TOR site, but thought I would share my thoughts here as well. Again, thank you for creating a mature community for the casual or serious gamer.

"I applaud the efforts of those who will participate in the "Old School" style community, and I would participate fully.

I have played various MMO's, none more than WoW, and among the many issues that I have with the game is the lack of a cohesive, self-policed community. The endless barrage of chatter, one-upsmanship, profane and base commentary, etc in the General Chat or Trade channels had me constantly using the ignore channel.

The interactive nature of an MMO allows individuals to hide behind a ficticious, anonymous character. Continued immersion in this alter ego desensitizes the individual to the human element of the other players. Thus you see the abusive and disrespectful behavior.

Understand, I am not prudish, but the deplorable behavior exhibited in game (no matter which server!) finally made me give up WoW.

I have no illusions that this can be prevented by the simple charter proposed here, but if enough like minded individuals band together, then the majority can mitigate the disrespectful behavior of the minority.

At any rate, I look forward to the release of the game and an enjoyable PvP/PvE experience."

Welcome Malefic!

Considering your location, here is my first question to you...

Do you work for Bioware Austin? Rolling Eyes ... ... Daniel, is that you?!
