I know it's not everyones cup of tea, but some people like to roleplay "doing it". That's fine, heck I do it, I'm not here to moan about that. What I am here for is to warn people that there is a ghost going around RPers houses while they're at it, and simply sitting there and watching.

His name is Davy Jones (Although there may be others), I have no idea who his alts are so I can't really blame anyone, but if someone knows anything please PM me and I'll help deal with it discreetly.

Some of you may not mind someone watching but that's totally down to you. This Davy Jones has been caught twice in my friends home while he's at it, so now he just hides a ghost of his own, then quickly logs on to check if he's around.

Some ways to deal with this pester are to make your own ghost (as ghosts can't be detected hidden) and ban him from the house. Or you can simply just make the house private while you're having fun.

Whoever this is, it's pathetic and invading the privacy of people. Not only that but we beleive he takes screenshots and passes them about which is just sad really. Just thought you should all know about it, and all help to catch this pervert will be welcomed!

Anyway, I couldn't help but post this...
Something strange goin on
Something's wrong
Gloom in the room
Outside is the storm
All alone in the crib
Watchin the tube
Yo-o-o-o is that what I think?
Did I see somethin move?
Chill down your spine
Your heart fills with fright
Not filled by the things
that GO BUMP IN THE NIGHT
They walk through the walls
With no time to stall
You call the GHOSTBUSTERS
Well that's who you call!

GHOSTBUSTERS!
We ain't-we ain't-we
We ain't afraid of no ghosts
GHOSTBUSTERS!
We ain't-we ain't-we
We ain't afraid of no ghosts
GHOSTBUSTERS!
We ain't-we ain't-we
We ain't afraid of no ghosts
GHOSTBUSTERS!
Stop! UHH!
Bridge
Hit it!

I-I ain't, I-I ain't
I ain't afraid of no ghosts
I, I-I ain't afraid
I-I ain't, I-I ain't
I-I-I, I-I-I ain't afraid of no ghosts

GHOSTBUSTERS!
GHOSTBUSTERS!

All alone on the phone
so whassup with that noise?
The wife's at work and I'm no jerk
and I just left my boys
? at school and I'm no fool
and I got no time to waste
So you get up and call, don't trip and fall
Go outside and leave the place
Now it's no dream because you seein
a shadow in the night
But we will come and get it done
so don't worry save your fright
Now there's a group who likes to troop
and you know you can trust us
So don't get nervous cause at your service
the local GHOSTBUSTERS!

I ain't afraid of no ghosts
I ain't I ain't afraid of no ghosts (2X)
GHOSTBUSTERS!
I ain't afraid of no ghosts
I ain't I ain't afraid of no ghosts (2X)
GHOSTBUSTERS!

Aight aight aight
I remember the time, I visited the grave
My life on the line, only my life to save
All by myself, with no one around
Did not understand a hand comin out the ground
I knew it wasn't mine, it was somebody else
But I didn't care G, I just screamed for HELP!
Then - GHOSTBUSTERS - had strapped to their back
Screamin - GHOSTBUSTERS - those 'busters attacked
"We are your friendly neighborhood ghostbusters,"
that's what they said to me
"We are the busters of an ?, G-H-O-S-T"

GHOSTBUSTERS!
I ain't-I ain't-I ain't
I ain't afraid of no ghosts
GHOSTBUSTERS!
I ain't-I ain't-I ain't
I ain't afraid of no ghosts

Howling haunting
Scaring screaming
Ghostly ghosts
Ghouling demons!
Monsters spooks
Werewolves and devils
All those things
on the same level
Nightmares (bad dreams) cannot be beat
It takes a brave man (to stand in defeat)
Must be the bravest (yo, the bravest and most)
You must be able to say, "I ain't afarid of no ghosts"
A good sense of humor, is important to have
When a ghost tries to scare you (ha, don't make me laugh)
They be dustin off ghosts, like true ghost-dusters
Go, go, go, go, ghoooooosstbusters!

GHOSTBUSTERS!


Busters, busters!
One time in the house
Peace to everybody out there
We love ya, peace

I AIN'T AFRAID OF NO GHOSTS

Ah! Things that go bump in the night!!!

Davy Jones is not the only "ghost" around, there is also the ingeniously named Deady. I quite often see them around when I'm on my alt with GM Spirit Speak and tend to party players to advise them that they're around. They refuse to be ressed and get a little abusive sometimes when challenged. Could be they don't realise that a GM Spirit Speaker can "hear" what they say also.

I tended to believe that they were just RP spoilers but what Van has suggested puts a different slant on things. Probably just an immature little boy(s) with nothing better to do. Chances are Davy Jones and Deady are the same player.

Erm, someone died outside and noticed a certain Mr. Davy Jones was in the house.. he said over ICQ "Who's Davy Jones?" and obviously I was baffled..

Yes Van, the ghost Davey Jones has been around for quite a long time, he was discussed in Vesper Command last year around early summertime as Hanse used to always see him around Vesper with his Spiritspeak. We came to other conclusions of his purpose tho :P, but perhaps this is his reason.

For a long time -- perhaps still -- there was almost always a ghost at Trinsic gate. One of the RPers we used to interact with sought out Alraune's help IC to try and contact the ghost, which I thought was very clever.

I sorta figured it was like an invisible RP monitor, a second account that someone had set up just so they could see if there was activity at the gate. It always seemed harmless to me.

What Van is talking about is creepy and extremely unfriendly, especially if the goal is to get logs or screenshots, but it's not surprising really.

The hard truth is that *anything* you do online (or, increasingly, anywhere) may be observed by someone ....

With having had a public building like the Rose i am quite used to do a lot of detect hidden when i want to make sure there's no one else in the building if there is need for such. Does detect hidden also notice Ghosts ?

Detect hidden will only catch the living.
For the dead, you need Spirit Speak. At GM level, I think.

Also be aware that I recall if you do get caught "doing it" you can get an account ban if a GM catches you at it or you get reported for it.

I have something else in my mind but cant recall it at the moment.

Another trick that might work, (I am not sure if it still does), is to turn on any vet reward statues you may have. They used to go off when anyone passed by, dead or alive. It didn't cure the problem but at least I was aware when anyone else was about.

I had used this long ago because of a stalker who followed me everywhere in ghost form and it was very creepy. The statues were noisy but they did help.

Good luck
