Possibly To Te Revived
||Twohart, local Kamiwerewolf
is in the process of organizing and taking applications for the
revival of the Helpstaff Service. After a hiatus of almost a
year, Twohart has suggested to the Wizstaff that with all the
new players we have, it might be helpful to folks who are
unfamiliar with SpinDizzy, or mucking in general to have folks
they can call upon when needed. This service, consisting
of a group of regular player volunteers, offers assistance to
folks in areas that don't always require Wizstaff
abilities. Building, MPI, MUF, Player Relations and such
are all aspects of the muck that Helpstaffers are qualified to
assist with. Although no one Helpstaffer will know all about
every aspect of Helpstaff responsibilities, they can usually
find someone who knows what they don't. And if they can't
solve a problem, get the answer or resolve an issue, or find
someone who can, a Wiz can be consulted. The proposed Helpstaff
'code' can be read in full at http://rivendog.tripod.com/temp/helpstaff/Helpstaffer_Page.html
Although no official action has been taken, Twohart is asking
folks who are interested in being on the Helpstaff to contact
him. Just send a qmail or page #mail to him and ask to be
put on the list for consideration. The Wizstaff will
consider the proposal, and if they find the idea valid will let
So, if you feel you can be helpful, contact Twohart, and
perhaps you can join the Helpstaff!
I missed attending Morticon's Role Play Meeting
Friday due to Road Runner (My cable modem connection) being down,
so I can only relate second hand
news about it. The attendees appeared to be folks that already enjoy RP, although a
few 'newbies' were in attendance. The entire log of the
meeting is posted at: http://www.ao.net/~rocko/ferret/rp_meet1.txt

long break from the muck, and of course everything fell
apart while I was gone.. During my break, I heard from
Cassie that TFF had been destroyed, and that this one was
started up. But it was still a couple of weeks before I
came here, just because I was determined to stay away for
a whole month.. Not that it made any difference, as within
ten minutes I had settled back into my old rut."

Procedures for Submitting Articles
||Submitting a story
or artwork for @Action News is easy! Just send it to email@example.com,
or qmail or page Argon about it.
Most any type of story or article will be accepted.
Generally, we'd prefer things that aren't out and out lies or
flames about other folks, and have a basis in the reality of
SpinDizzy. Things that occur in public areas are fair
game. The things reported don't have to have actually
happened, (Any more than anything that happens here does.) but
make sure you don't overstep the social boundaries and rules of
interaction that we have. These are pretty broad
guidelines, but we expect good sense to apply.
