    darksoulswiki.chatngo has modderators that are save editing an hacking

    Post by kennylagenz on Thu Nov 22, 2012 10:03 pm

    the chat n go which supports communication for the game is now being used to share exploits , such as 99 mushrooms, 99 divine blessings, having 7 estus flasks each with 20 uses, not to mention a number of others that are equally destructive to online game play. i am a concerned an avid dark souls player i have been playing since release. i felt like something should be done or said but didn't really know what actions to take . hope fully this post will gain some attention but i have my doubts. i would like for exploits to be looked down upon rather than promoted. can any thing be done ?

    To my understanding it is a bit difficult to keep an eye on that chat because of its nature. I believe exploiting and glitches have been given a blind eye since most already know them and while on the forum and Wiki we try to hide them in the chat it is harder to control. I however have never been a fan of this. That does not mean I expect it to change, controlling chat rooms can be very difficult. I might suggest using this forum instead if that bothers you since here the rules can be enforced much more efficiently.

    Our moderators are asked to not spread glitching in the game. We cannot control who has duped items, but they should not be advertising this on the chat.

    If you have concerns, please let me know the name/s of the moderator/s in questions

    I don't have any say over how the chat and it's moderators are run, but I rather find that as far as pure single-player goes, glitches and exploits are harmless. If you want to have 99 Estus flasks when you fight Ornstein and Smough, have fun with that. But when it comes to online play, (and you're almost always connected to online play somehow) glitches and exploits shift into the realm of being a detriment to other people's play, even when they are used to help others (such as being summoned for Nito when you have 99 Elizabeth's mushrooms). Since We're almost always influencing and being influenced by other players, and being so hard to know when and how someone is exploiting, no one but the person can know if they're using exploits "honorably." So the only option to prevent online shenanigans other than to just take their word for it, is to ban exploits completely.

    Does that sound at all correct?

    If you have a specific mod in reference or an incident please PM me directly. This thread was about a specific incident which has already been resolved and not a general topic for discussion.
