    Same thing happened to the the Unite channel on Vilya. We as a community had to create a whole new channel (GLFF) I would assume the same type of troll did this to you. For the laughs and to watch the chaos. Not much can be done, I am afraid.

    I am guessing someone finds this hilarious. Most players enjoy the game, have fun and are not interested in disrupting the game. IIRC that kind of behavior is against the COC.

    It was hijacked Monday, and there's already a post here in General and one in the Elendilmir forums, both posted on Monday.

    When servers are brought down, all user created channels collapse including /glff or /world. The first person that logs in and accesses the channel re-creates the channel. If the first person does it with a password then the newly recreated channel will have a password. This last is what is happening.

    1. To regain control of your channel you need to wait for the next server bounce and be sure to be THE FIRST one to log in.

    2. The other way to regain control is to realize that when the last person in a channel logs out the channel collapses. It the person who put a password on the channel logs out and if that person is the only one in the channel then the channel will collapse and the next person to log in without a password will recreate the channel.

    One might presume that this /glff w/password channel only has the 1 user in it. When that player logs you can regain control of the channel. The number of the channel may change based on other channels you have active.

    Keep the previous standard channel and you will reconnect once the channel is reclaimed.

    /joinchannel glff
    Whoever says “I” creates the “you.” Such is the trap of every conscience. The “I” signifies both solitude and rejection of solitude. Words name things and then replace them. Whoever says tomorrow, denies it. Tomorrow exists only for him who does not seek it. And yesterday? Yesterday is Kolvillàg: a name to forget, a word already forgotten.

    No, they password is known, and people have been spreading it around, so there are multiple people in GLFF. Most are in both GLFF and GLFF2 which was made the first time this happened.

    Your only hope of recovering an unpassword protected version using the old name (which now has a password attached), is to push everyone to /leavechannel glff before the next maintenance AND then rejoin the channel without a password. Next you have to camp the server reboot so the first person to log in will recreate the channel without a password on it.

    You could try a mass logout of everyone on the server in /glff but that might be rather hard to do unless you can find a time when few people are in that channel (do leave and join to see the numbers).

    Here are a copy of alias commands you can use to help out. Put them on a QS slot for fast clicking and HOPE you get on before someone else who still is using the password.

    /alias add ;jglff /joinchannel glff
    /alias add ;lglff /leavechannel glff

    Passwords on chat channels should disappear if no players are in the channel.

    There are 2 opportunites you have to look for to reclaim your channel.

    1. A server restart or maintenance period when everyone is off the server.
    2. some time during the night when only a few people are on and all are willing to drop the channel.

    The biggest problem you will have in reclaiming the channel is now, is a lot of people have used the password and once they have used it the system automatically uses this password to link to to the channel unless they drop the channel.

    It's like a race now.

    The 1st person to log in after 1 or 2, creates the channel. If that person is automatically linked with the password version == stuck with password until 1 or 2 happens again. If the 1st person who gets in does not link with a password then you are golden on the channel.

    So, you have to camp the restarts or monitor when only a few people are online on your server and get them to cooperate. They must all leave the channel /leavechannel glff. Then join again with /joinchannel glff (with no password).

    You can use the alias' to test the state of the channel easily. You can constantly test the leave and join to see if you can get in. When you log in, you will see how many people are in the channel.

    The command you are trying to avoid is
    /joinchannel glff MyPassword

    The command you want to use is
    /joinchannel glff

    To test between them you have to leave the channel
    /leavechannel glff

    Note: The channels collapse on being empty but the server remembers how you last connected to the 4 user channels and will use this when you log in again. This is why you have to /leavechannel before you logout so you don't automatically recreate the password version of the channel.
