Members may not use world yell to advertise clan chats with the exception of the server clan chats such as Alora and Help. Group activities are acceptable. This includes gambling chats, clan chats, etc. First offenders will receive a warning, followed by 24-hour mute, with the ending result being a 48-hour mute. If a member has been given direct permission by another staff member, they may disregard this rule.

 

• a. Flaming, flame-baiting, and trolling via world yell will not be tolerated. On top of the standardized punishment (see rule 1), the wrongdoer's right to world yell will be revoked temporarily or indefinitely, depending on the severity of the text.

• b. Luring members over world yell is prohibited and can result in the revoking of the wrongdoer's access to world yell temporarily or indefinitely, depending on the severity of the text.
 

• c. Advertising videos related to Alora is allowed with a yell timer of 5 minutes+, if this is below 5 minutes you will be warned at first, the second time it will result in a 24 hour yell-mute followed by a 48 hour yell-mute with the ending result being a 7 day yell-mute.

 

• d. AFK yelling is only allowed when it is 10+ minutes each yell, if this is below 10 minutes you'll be kicked at first with a warning upon logging inThe second offense will result in a 24-hour yell-mute with the ending result being a permanent yell-mute.

 

• e.  Anything that can be seen as intentional spam in yell is a muteable offense. "Ree" is no longer an instant mute, however, if you are to spam yell chat with it, you will be punished. The first offense will result in a 1-hour yell-mute followed up by a 24-hour yell-mute with the ending result being a 7-day yell-mute.

• f. Alora is primarily based out of the United States and Canada. This being said, the only language that should be used on the World Yell or in the Alora CC is English. The use of any other language will result in a 1 hour yell-mute, followed by a 24-hour mute, a 48-hour mute, a 7-day mute, and finally, a permanent mute.

[/spoiler]


Brief explanation (optional): Note that this rule will be enforced on the World Yell and the Alora CC ONLY. Also keep in mind that if you are caught using language that violates any of our in-game chat rules, you will be punished accordingly no matter what language it is spoken in.

This month I will be interviewing one of our Event Managers King purple and one of our Forum Moderators Paine!

 

 

Hello, King purple

 

 

Lowkey :  Now that you've been our primary Event Manager for quite some time,

is there anything you would want to add or change to your current event list?

 

King purpleYes, I am working on a current NH Event similar to the one old school made for All Stars. It will take a lot of work with the +1 system Etc, but I am sure its possible to make it popular here on Alora.

 

 

LowkeyWhile dedicating almost every single weekend to the Alora events,

what other activities do you do on the weekend once those are completed?

 

King purple : I tend to log off alora a bit, go out and take my mind a bit off the game so that i don't burn out. Either that or i just chill with my friends on voice and play other games ( Doesn't last long, i usually go back to alora in like a couple hours).

 

 

Lowkey : You’ve been given an elephant. You can’t give it away or sell it. What would you do with the elephant?

 

King purple : I Would take it with me to the US and see what ideas Trailer Park has. I'm sure me, Trailer park and the elephant would have a blast.

 

 

Lowkey : Can you explain in detail why people call you "23"?

 

King purple : Its the size of one of my body parts. I want to thank hsoJ for leaking that. Never saw someone so excited about knowing my neck size.

 

 

Lowkey : As our final question, what are your plans for Alora/IRL in 2019?

 

King purple : To make sure that my name keeps being mentioned by salty ex-staff and vets. I must be doing something right.

 

 

Thank you Mr. 23! We will now be interviewing Paine

 

 

____________________________________

 

 

Hello, Squirrel!

 

 

Lowkey : What is your motivation to continue to play Alora and stay with the Staff Team?

 

PaineMy main motivation to play Alora is the community for sure, just a very friendly place where you can have fun and chill. The reason I still stay in the staff team is because of all the friendships and bonds I've created with the other staff members. Oh and all the jokes about Lowkey's hairline.

 

 

LowkeyWas there ever a moment you wanted to quit Alora because you went 300m+ XP dry for an Agility pet?

Also, what was your reaction irl when you received it?

 

Paine : Well, I never had a moment where I wanted to quit because of it, but I definitely had breakdowns and stopped doing agility. It certainly was a hype moment when I got it, and I'm very happy because of it.

 

 

Lowkey : If you had the chance to meet 1 person from the Staff Team, who would it be and why?

 

Paine : If I had a chance to meet someone from the staff team, it would be Hellish. I enjoy talks with him (although I get flamed in every sentence), he's an awesome staff member and a great person overall.

 

 

LowkeyA penguin walks through that door right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?

 

Paine : Buenos Dios amigos. Do you have any ice?

 

 

Lowkey : As our final question, what are your plans for Alora/IRL in 2019?

 

Paine : My goal for Alora is to get as many pets as I can, but we all know how that ends. My IRL plans are to just chill, work from time to time and continue my studying as usual.

 

 

Disclaimer:

Have any interview questions you would like to ask any of the staff members?

Don't hesitate to send me or Dante a private message via forums/discord and I'll include them in next edition along with the answers from that staff member!
