Chat (T)won't work only on Vogon Server(US)

Postby AnotherPlayer » Sun Jul 17, 2011 03:04 UTC

Hi Everybody,
You know me as "AnotherPlayer" and before that I was slow old man. I really am slow and I'm kinda an old man in training at now 63 LOL.
Here is the problem, My "T" for talk or chat key works on my end and I see the text and see it sent but it is not echoed back by the server but only at the Vogon server.
On any other servers I visited it works fine, in local mode, it works fine.
I get the blue bullle when I try to talk, it is as if the server is set to block my typed messages.
Since I did nothing to get a text block, I am at a loss because I can't even say hello unless I change my nake to hello or as I did today, I changed it to "[email protected]" so others would understand I was not being rude or ignoring a hello or greeting.
Any reply can get fastest attention to my email [email protected]
Since the Q3 Vogon HQ server is my favorite gaming server it would be really nice to say hello back but right now I hane no voice short of a name change type message.
I could use the gauntlet blade on and off fire button to send morse code (I am a ham operator) but I doubt many nearby would understand what I an sending.
This would be my only dynamic communications method.

Could somebody figure out how this situation can be undone at the server? Because I know the data is going out but not in the text returning from the server, it looks like
there is a "mute" order in effect there.
Regards,
Mike AKA AnotherPlayer and used to be Slow Old Man

mutes rarely happen on accident.

he was probably being abusive to other players or chat spamming something obnoxious.

Ive never seen AnotherPlayer be abusive, talk crap to anyone..He comes...he hangs out..frags a little...rarely chats..and he has fun.

I just dont know how or why he was muted....maybe by accident.. :smilina:

Thank You, Kitty.
The unblock must have worked because I can chat again.
I really enjoy playing at the server, though I almost never win, it is a real pleasure to
have some great company and get some game play in, too.

For me, the fun is in the playing and watching some really amazing moves by other
more savy players. In addition to liking the way this server is setup in that mod, I really like the fact it is quite humanized by many nice and fun people.

Thanks again,
Mike (Another Player)
