Me and my friend Penelope are the best friends
Just a small update to say yes I am alive.
I won’t go into detail, but I have had a mix of various personal issues and mixed in with my natural laziness and lack of motivation I have once again neglected the site for a long time.
It wasn’t even intended this time either.
One day I was walking home with some notes for a short story to add the the site when I got a phone call that basically turned my life upside down. Again I won’t share any details but yeah that is my excuse.
I have been wanting to come back. I have had various audiobooks of the newer books for a long time but for various reasons put them off.
I am finally listening to them and as expected they have given me a little motivation to poke my head back in here.
As you have probably noticed the rules have been updated as requested and I have added new chatango chats.
I have also updated a few outdated pages such as the book pages. I may go through some others bit by bit too.
So if you have any suggestions feel free to share here. If you know any pages that need any major changes / updates or just want to comment on the chat related side.
Thank you all for visiting, it doe’s truly make me happy this silly little fan project I once did became so popular.
Sadly the shoutboxes close tomorrow.
I am testing various chats on the main side bar and on the roleplay page. From the ones I have up, I personally like the top chatango one and is currently most likely to take over the old ones.
Please lmk if you have issue with it and your opinions on the chats.
Also if you have any other chat suggestions contact me.
I f the top chat has no issues I will likely use that for all chats.
If there are issues I will look for other alternatives.
Please give feedback of opinions and issues ^^.
Just a quick notice to explain what is happening with the shoutboxes. Sadly the company that host the chatboxs is closing down.
This will mean I will need to replace the chats before the end date of the 25th.
This will not effect Silverpelt directly, I will replace the chats with another chat service once I look at options. If you have suggestions for other chat services feel free to contact me. I have already had some already.
Sadly this will mean chat accounts will be lost, and once the new chats are set up you will have to make a new account on them.
Silverpelt is not closing down.
It is sad to see the shoutboxs go, but there are alternatives I can change to, so don’t panic ^^.
So finally another long overdue update.
First and foremost I won’t apologise for not acting sooner.
I had full intentions of following up on my last post and have read the waves of messages I have received. But all I will simply say Is I was tired and didn’t feel like dealing with it. I won’t go into details but I have had a lot of drama in my life as of late and every time I click a message from silverpelt and think ok, today I will deal with it, I get some message about horrible people, unfair bans, rude users, liars all sorts of claims and whatever else. And therefore my motivation to even look into it was gone. I come online to escape and relax not find more drama.
So rather than try and figure out who is being honest and who is not, I am simply going to stage one.
It seems all the admins were removed because of some message hacker or something. I honestly don’t know how true this is and don’t much care.
I am not pointing fingers, as I honestly don’t know who did what and who didn’t as I don’t feel I can even trust what I am told, things have just blown out of proportion. I will not ban anyone for any of these claims.
I will simply use this as a point to remove all admins for the time being. I honestly never wanted any to begin with as I didn’t feel giving someone such power was good. But anyway.
I have also cleared the ban list. I know there were some nasty people who were banned, but I have had SOO many messages about unfair bans I couldn never hope to sort them, so if you know someone who was unfairly banned they can come back. I have noted the ips and see how this goes. I can’t imagine any amount of trolls returning because of this is worse than it has been currently.
I WhiteTiger am to be the only admin for the foreseeable future unless I see otherwise to change this. Mods I am still looking into.
Comments and opinions below or through the contact page please. I will read them.
Ok as usually I have not been around and drama has continued.
I have infact been reading messages sent to me, but frankly I have had things going on lately and I didn’t feel like trying to deal with the drama I keep hearing.
People complaining about others or about being banned. I just didn’t want to deal with it simple as.
However it seems things have got to the point that an admin has been banned without my consent, and while I have as I said I have not been helping deal with whatever is going on here, I feel this has got too extreme.
So simply I want everyone’s opinions now, honest opinions, either comment here or send a message on the contact form if you wish to remain anonymous.
What do you think of the situation? the staff? who is fair, who is wrong? are bans unfair? are bans being undone without reason? are there people that should be banned that aren’t?
I want a mix of honest unbias opinions.
At this moment I am likely to just remove all admin roles. mods can remove spam and frankly I never wanted admins anyway. If someone is really that persistent you may just have to contact me and hope I bother to deal with it :P.
As frankly I think that it has caused more drama that it has prevented.
However I would like opinions first. If you use the contact form, be honest I will not say a word about anything you say about anyone. It will remain between you and me.
Just a quick update to say strikes have been removed. It seems they have just caused more drama.
Bans are now simply a last resort at the admins discretion . If you feel a ban is unfair, contact me on the contact me page with screenshots ideally of what you were banned for.
Also if a user requires a ban you can do the same and contact me.
That is all.
Just a very quick journal to wish you all a Happy New Year ^^.
I hope you had a good christmas and have a good 2018!
Hello Stargazers ^^.
First off I made some minor updates from Darkest Night.
There are some new confirmed deaths from a previous book, a prophecy and connected omen and a new insult! Smart-ears. It is no Goody four paws, but i suppose it’s ok..
Anything else I missed in Darknest Night I need to add? please let me know ^^. Also if you have any good quotes to add from recent books please let me know :P.
In other news I slightly updated the chat rules, there is no permanent ban unless I personally issue it. I will give exceptions for for outright trolls, but minor things should only be a 1 day ban ^^.
I have added a contact form to the contact me page, so feel free to use it if you need to contact me, both staff and non staff :).
Lastly I know there has been mod poll(s) going around. I appreciate the thought and I will look at them, but if I add more mods I will likely choose myself.
Honestly adding staff causes more drama than it prevents and I only want to do so if it really is needed.
That is all, Thanks for reading and visiting Silverpelt :3.
I am sorry for not being around much but I do read the messages I get even if I don’t reply.
And as such I have received various opinions on what is needed for the chat, more mods more admins etc.
I know everyone would love to be a mod, but naturally I can’t make everyone a mod or admin.
The only reason they are there is to keep the chat a happy place for everyone.
However I am at fault for not really giving any clear indication of what they are there for and are and are not allowed to do.
So I shall try some actual written rules, you can now see under each chat and should leave no excuse to those who do not read them.
They are as follows:
Simply put, there is to be no spam or drama in the chats. That means no flooding the chats with rubbish, no rude or inappropriate messages (keep the place pg, this site is for all ages) and no constant off top discussions if it is interrupting role-play.
If no one is roleplaying of course it is fine to have a normal chat, but don’t start asking about how someones day at school was while 5 other people are roleplaying, kindly ask the person to talk in the general chat below for that.
This goes for drama or any off topic things too. If you have an issue with others users, first off I suggest talking politely in the general chat. If you cannot get along, then ignore one another. Do not allow your personal disagreements to boil up and cause an uproar in the chats.
As i am now adding a strike rule which I hope will help keep people in line and I trust my mods and admins to follow these fairly too.
Simply it is as follows.
mods and admins can give a strike to someone if they are constantly spamming or being rude etc (the odd comment or spam can be let off but if it is consistent please give a strike).
If you receive 3 strikes, the admins can give you a 1 day ban.
Once the day is over, I would appreciate if the admin in question could unban them(or whenever they next are online).
They will then be back to 0 strikes, but if they receive 3 more, they will receive a permanent ban.
I feel this is more than fair personally, but I would like others opinions, and any questions people have, especially mods and admins, please ask away :).
Oh and finally before I forget to help enforce these new rules, I have promoted Jaywhisker and Floofy to admin. I will consider other staff changes, but please do not ask to become staff, which I will decide myself. Do not ask to become staff.
