[2.7] "Ghost" or stuck session in MP Lobby

Post by journey2009 » Sun Nov 27, 2016 2:32 pm

My friend made a game previously called 'PacksWithRanksRP' under the username 'error', however, when they ended the game, the chat stayed up. It's still up currently and it's saying a person, whom had joined the game previously and went quiet mid-roleplay, is the host/owner of the chat. It will not let my friend take down the chat, we can currently in it right now because my friend has a back-up account, thankfully.

Yes, my friend has sent in a report to the bug report email. If we could get a mod or two in here, it'd be of great help, thank you.

Hi journey2009,

Not the first instance of this glitch, unfortunately; it's been reported twice over on the Facebook group. Hopefully the team can address it as soon as possible. All your friend can really do is submit a bug report and allow the WolfQuest Team to investigate and deal with it.

The most recent "ghost" session occurred on the 21st of November-
So, I am not sure what is going on, but I am pretty sure this is against the rules. I just finished a public online game, only to find someone hosting a server, with my username? I could even log into it??

Nothing interesting happens.

Thank you for taking the time to reply. My friend's concern is that if they leave, people will join and report their account for being inactive/making a 'false title'. My friend has submitted a bug report, so, hopefully the WolfQuest Team will take down the chat or something along those lines.

Thank you again.

I'm sure Dave will respond to your friend's e-mail report as soon as he reaches it. Until then, all that can be done is to wait it out and see if the server expires on its own. The only admins/mods in-game are WolfQuest Team Members, so they're the only people capable of managing the server - on-site moderators' game accounts are and always have been user-level so we really only deal with this community forum. ^^;

Not sure which inbox is prioritized, but I don't think the team would take action. They're well aware of this particular issue and there aren't any rules stating "inactive" games are disallowed or in any way punishable, so it's unlikely they'll get in any trouble for a glitched "ghost" session they have no control over.

As a note for anyone else who may also be affected by this issue, rest assured that your account has not been compromised. It's simply a glitch with the game or server. Since it's been reported and can only be investigated by the team, I'll lock this thread (and tweak the title to hopefully draw other players experiencing the same issue here first) to prevent repeated answers. Happy WolfQuesting~
