This command allows you to let the GMs know that you have been attempting to contact an NPC recently. This command is not a replacement for going out and actually trying to talk to an NPC, or SICing them, or sending them gridmail but rather it is an additional step, to be used instead of leaving a player note.
This command exists to make sure the GMs know that you have -already- attempted to reach this NPC, and have not gotten a response (due to no GMs being available). You do not need to remove your request when you sign off or go AFK. It should only be removed if you no longer need to speak with that NPC. GMs will not see your request at the top of the queue if you are not online. It will show again when you sign back on.
This command should not be abused. Abuse of this command is a violation of our rules and will be subject to disciplinary action.
To use the command you simply type it and then follow the prompts. You should leave detailed information about how you attempted to contact the NPC, and what you need to discuss with them. Please also include contact information so the NPC knows how to contact you, whether it be SIC or a phone number.
Using this command does not guarantee that a GM will be able to pick up your puppet.
If the request does not get filled and marked as complete within 2 weeks, it will be removed. This will cover cases where the puppet is no longer relevant. You are welcome to resubmit the request if that happens.
* Include your contact information in your conversation with the NPC, and then your puppet request. * You are encouraged to wait around the NPC for 5 to 10 minutes to give the GM a chance to pick up the puppet. If there is no response after 15 minutes, you can move on. * It can take anywhere from 5 minutes to a week to get to your request, depending on the situation. Be patient.
