Ok, I'll spare everyone the details of server drama. But I, as the owner of a hosted server, asked two (probably now former) married friends to run a server for me. I could pay for it, but they had the mad skillz to run and mod it. So we teamed up with the explicit golden rule ("he who has the gold makes the rules"). Despite that, I was pretty much hands off for the first six months... Only, you guessed it, one of them abused the heck of her powers, to other players' annoyance and detriment. To the point that it was necessary for me to "fire" them. Only I can't figure out how to do that within the game. All three of us are GMs. I removed their server access and had the host change the db password. But they still have GM characters. I can find no information on how to remove GM status from another player, especially while they're offline. Best I have been able to find is how to ban them, but I don't know if that works for GM characters. If they're online, it becomes "who's quickest on the draw" and I don't type well enough to risk that! Am I going to have to learn some SQL and go into the database to fix this before I bring the server back up?

Hello, I believe that all the islands that exist are hosted in Europe. I would like to see a exclusive island hosted in the western continent of earth. LIke the USA. Living in the west coast of the USA and playing WO I can feel the latency pretty bad at times. I have to wait for gates and doors to open after I walk into them. At times when I'm moving to fast I'm told to stop moving so my location can be updated. Other times while riding my wagon I'm spinning out of control because the server is still trying to respond to my movement and I have to stop and wait for the catch up. I know some of you will say it's my internet connection and I need to check this and that. But there is nothing wrong with my internet when these things are occurring. I believe it's just the latency coming from the other side of the planet. In WU I load into low latency server and gates and doors open up for me as I'm walking up to them. I'm not slamming my face into the door waiting for it to open. I never experience the system message telling me my position needs to be updated. Now I'm not saying WU is better or anything like that. I just rather log into a server in my own continent. Preferably my own country and get that low latency and smoother gameplaly. Until then I'll play with what we got. Still a good game, thanks!
