    I've realized that using the Shout box for D2 game info is not the way to go. its quick for the person who puts the message there. but it can sit there for days and become totally inept. I know I started it but for now on I will be using this thread when I put a mule up or start a new thread. I' open to comments on this, I just try to put up the mule when I make a norm game sinse I have access to it. It will make it more convenient for anyone who happens to go on b-net.

    Random announcements don't help for activity. Games need to be organized weekly at a specific time.

    I don't even get home until 5 - 5:30. Dinner, talk to kids and wife and bam! it is 8:00 before I get to play anything, which only happens once a week (or so) now.

    there was tons of stuff out of place on the mules last night when i checked them so I cleaned them out. Keep the mules clean and organized or don't bother muling.

    Ya I re-organized a few things the other day. That's going to be the biggest challenge is keeping things on the right place.

    I know I put a ring on the mage guy, planned to get it moved, but other than that when I bring them in I put stuff away where it goes.

    Reminds me, I need to finish burning in the last few mules, they've had over an hour in games, so mostly done. I plan to have an "inventory" ready for a Monday posting.

    Has anyone been using the mules? I haven't posted inventories yet because it seems alot of people have already slowed down on D2.

    I was also thinking that with items coming and going, the best way to deal with that is on a request basis. So if someone is looking for something specfic, they can ask for it and one of us who has access to the accounts can check for it, or may already know.

    As far as access, I've only given the password to the mods here. Should we consider allowing people who have been around a long time to have access as well, like Fantom, KnifeHim, MacGuru, Wran, mostly longtime members who still play. New members within the last 6 months would still need to make requests, just to be safe. That decision of course is up to Jakeman and/or the mod team and I don't plan to give out the pass to anyone else unless I'm told otherwise.

    i'm busy with school, but i use the mules when i play.

    the password should only be given to long-time members that request it. We shouldn't just offer the password to people.

    I have acted as mule host a few times for some of our members.... Personally, I have taken a few and added a few too... will be adding more soon too, but some of the mules are full (mostly with low lvl rares).

    if the mules are full and you have stuff to add i think we should get rid of the low level stuff.

    No one showed up to the last clan game. I'll post another when Christmas is closer and people start getting on breaks, but if we don't see much interest even during a "commitment-free" season, then we may distribute and disband the mules.

    hell...even if we can't get our acts together and play as a team... we don't need to disband the mule account.

    I for one like the idea of having clan items you can twink with... then give em back later on...

    i put a couple things on them today. as long as there a few people using the account, I don't see a reason to disband it. After all, I did put alot time into getting them set up.....least we can do is let the active users use them.
