Yeah, this gave me a good laugh the other day.

I made a character with a somewhat offensive name. Sometimes you step over the line, and that line is sometimes hard to determine. lol

Anyways I was AFK sitting at Luna bank, and had been for a couple days. I just leave my characters logged in now almost all the time.

The second day I get home from being out of city to see Connection Lost. I'm thinking wth...

So I log back in and notice that my name is now Hilton. lolol

So me being in my drunk ways page the gms with something along the lines of this:

"Hi, recently GM ???? changed my name to Hilton. Yes I admit, my previous name (Insert Name Here) was offensive. However, why Hilton? This name is so stale. Out of all the names in the world why Hilton??? lol"

lol. Anyways I was just doing it for laughs seeing if I would get the canned response. Long and behold about 30 minutes had gone by, and all of a sudden I'm teleported to an empty dungeon somewhere.

The GM opens chat with me and does the old, haha how can I help you?

So anyways she offered to change my name to whatever I liked. She was very laid back and super cool.

I can't remember her GM name because it was an odd name, but it was cool to actually see a GM talk to you one on one, and be laid back and have a sense of humor. lol

So she asked me if she could help me with anything else. So I said "Can I get a moongate to this place put in my house?" And she replied "I can do even better."

All of a sudden I'm teleported to some small room with like 6 moongates and a sign that says "This room is for unattended macroers" or something like that. Then I see in my chat she says "Here is a lot of moongates!!"

She then left chat. lol

It was funny. At least to me haha. Now I know what the infamous Jail looks like! haha

Yeah, I think part of what makes a good GM is as much a sense of humor as well as knowing the various ins and outs of their job. Its nice to know you aren't dealing with a machine that spits out generic responses all the time :)
