    Default Removal from AOD

    Guys there is a disturbing trend happening recently.

    People in game but not on vent. I'm looking right now at 20 people in game and 6 or 7 in vent.

    You all agreed to it when recruited and it's part of the CoC.

    Going forward people are going to be removed. Your harming the division.

    I'd rather kick 80 people who are inactive or not being on vent than have 150+ that are not taking part.

    It's getting my ass kicked from command and so now it's time to draw a line.

    Fully support this Draig...being in vent isn't that hard and everyone should be able to do it.

    you can be in the quiet room/have vent muted if you want... but it's an AOD rule that you need to be on vent when playing an AOD game so BE ON VENT

    Thanks Draig,

    It has been like this for sometime already! People have been asked nicely, and spoken to by either Myself, Drunkingunner and Dimitrion in the past when we have been in game together.

    Come on guy's when you signed up you agreed to this (I know i was asked and i agreed to it). Let's get our Sh*t sorted.

    The problem is it has a spiral effect.
    People log onto Vent, don't see many online, so don't bother to load up the game at all = bad news.
    OR
    People are logging into the game, then not bothering to even try vent because they don't expect to see many on.

    Either way it is bad news. The only ones who can fix it is the members. By logging into vent as agreed.

    The only measures open to me are to start removing people who don't do it.
    We have asked nicely and politely, many, many times.
    I've asked all the officers to start taking names of people in game and not on vent.
    A count of these people is kept in the officer forums.
    3 strikes and you will get a final warning by PM.
    Then I'll start banning people.

    I really DO NOT want to do this, but seriously, 154 full time members and there was 20 in game last night, with SIX in vent.
    Totally unacceptable.

    I trust you all to do the right thing from here on out. There will be no further warnings or chances given.

    If Command Sgts see it happen don't be surprised if they give you an insta ban. At the end of the day you're breaking the CoC and endangering the division.

    Many people have given a lot of time and in some cases money, to providing you with the best environment possible with events, trainings, practices scrimmages, Vent and forum use.

    All you have to do in return is play and have fun while on Vent and sticking to the CoC.

    Not so much to ask is it?

    I would like to add: we need folks to try and stop by the Forums once a day... check some threads... and check your emails!

    I am making it a habit to ask the guys I am flying with to please stop by the forums once a day and check your emails (PMs).

    One thing to note though on all this. Alot of times...im guilty for this also...i will be done gaming for the day, get out of vent, walk away from my computer, and still be logged in the game, so it looks like im still playing, which I am not. So before officers jump to comclusions, maybe put a reminder to players, to also log out of game.

    well if you're going to leave the game running you might as well leave vent running in the quiet room as well...

    Guys, without downplaying how serious I am about this, it will soon become obvious who are the ones are who are not on vent compared to those who have forgotten to log out of game. Don't worry about it, trust your officers to make the right calls.

    Remember: The Quiet Room is your friend. If you can't use Vent for whatever reason (like your headset being RMAed and you're still waiting for them to ship the damn things back) just go in there.

    All you need to do to fulfill your reqs.

    Though if your headset is not being RMAed, you should try to play with the rest of AOD. Lots of good times to be had, and IL-2s to be rammed!

    I often will have both logged in, will play a bit, then have to be away for an unknown length of doing baby duties, and when I get back, I am still in the WT menu, but vent has logged me out do to inactivity. Will I still be logged out of vent if i am in the quiet room? I do out up a comment stating AFK, but that lasts only as long as I am logged into vent, but inactive. Is there a way to have vent have the name go grey if they are inactive, or set the log out time. I know we do not want to overload the vent server with hundreds of ppl not using it but is there some solution to this? Maybe WT will allow us to put up a comment next to our name too like vent does.....

    The solution is to log out of the game if you will be away for some time. You don't get kicked from Vent for at least an hour, maybe two.
