NON COMBATIVE BLOG INTERACTIONS

(photo:ziggy sa)
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE
NOT ALL THAT COMFORTABLE

WITH "BLOGOCOMBAT"...

AND PREFER TO BE
GENTLE AND MATURE...

HERE ARE SOME ALTERNATIVES
YOU MAY WISH TO CONSIDER:


* verbal volleyball (per Liz Strauss)

* opinion billiards

* suggestology soccer

* intervention vaulting

* grovel golf

* gestural gardening

* beliefs bowling

* unity aikido

* reason wrangling

* justice jousting

* ecumenical minesweeping

* echolalic eclat

* assertion applique

* confrontation collage

* rationalization rugby

* dogma doping (WARNING: illegal in some extreme debate venues)

* self-pity squash racketing

* solicitous solfeggio

* scapegoat scavenger hunting

* polarization parading

* bellicose badminton

* discursive saber rattling

* creed croquet

* gambit gewgawing

* web-centric wainscotting

* bailiwick balustrading

* hieratic harangue

* doctrinal drainpiping

* recommendation roistering

Personally I use all of the above, plus full out blogocombat, when I meet with clients or staff.

I suggest you do the same.

Or begin new xommunication xhannels, like the playbots in Wyvern.

CHATS

Wyvern offers many ways to chat and socialize, including shouts, whispers, tells, group-tells, guild tells, "say", non-verbal emotes, wiztells, pktells, in-game email, and other mechanisms. The most popular channels are tell (over 11.4 million to date), shout (over 6 million), and say (over 3.75 million).

We've also logged over 1.2 million guild-tells, a quarter million PK channel tells, and over half a million wiz-tells (those Wizards sure are talking about you a lot!) Wyvern players are evidently not shy about sharing their feelings — we only get about 3 whispers per day.

Finally, we introduced a player-warning system in mid-2003, to help players police the game. We've had over 15,000 player warnings issued since we enabled that feature. Great job, folks!
