11:45AM - Reminders

1. The weekly BT is tonight. I'm hoping we can get this roaring back to life. The last few weeks have been off for me and others I think due to RL. Let's try and get it back together. Hope to see many of you at 8pm CST.

2. For anyone who has somehow missed out, the Taxibots have a new site which includes real message boards. If you haven't registered there yet, please do so. The site can be found here. All important taxi-related matters are being dicussed there now. Don't get left out! This is also the official site we will be directing new recruits to.

12:32PM - Taxibot Diesel

I just reached level 6 last night and I'd like to sign up for the Service. Is there some way I apply? Or do I need to wait for an invitation? If so, how do I get one? Also, I have a friend Taxibot Melon who would also like to join.

10:54AM - Scaling back

Sorry I've been absent lately. Classes have started and taken up some time. I will be having a class on Thursdays, and won't be getting home till after the tour has alreayd started, so while I will still be doing some transporting the good heroes of Paragon around, I won't be able to do the badge tours. Hopefully when the semester is over I cna join again.

3:59PM - New Forum

For those who haven't heard, the Taxibots now have a new forum on GuildPortal. It can be reached here. We even have our own server forum under the main one. Everyone check it out. I will probably move most if not all important communications to there. There's also a calendar area where you can check out upcoming events of note within the Taxibots.

11:44PM - I'm a TaxiBot!

Tonight I became a real boy taxibot! I got my new paintjob and participated in my first PTS Badge Tour in Kings Row. It was lots of fun, and I'm really glad I decided to become a taxibot. Thanks everyone who welcomed me into the Pinnacle garage tonight, and I hope to meet everyone else soon!

Hi everyone, new aspiring cabbie here.

After the replies to this post, I decided to make up a taxibot on Pinnacle server... Taxibot Q. Played him up to level 7 today, so he's met the all the core requirements of a taxibot (meaning he has Recall Friend), and I briefly met Taxibot-SUV and Taxibot Angus today. I'm still looking for an invite to the garage, and I'll be really excited to get my new paintjob and become a real Taxibot (I feel like Pinnochio saying that).

So, glad to be here and hope to get to know you all very soon! Oh, and fizzwick... I am looking forward to the cookies I was promised. :D

4:31PM - I'd like to help.

Ok, I know that I'm new, and I am probably overstepping my bounds, but I have an offer that I'd like to put forth for your consideration. If I am completely out of line, please feel free to tell me so.

First off, let me say that I enjoy being a Taxibot. I'm fairly low level at the moment, but I try and spend a little time every night that I play at the Hollows helping people out. I've had a lot of people tell me how much they appreciate what we do, and that makes it very worthwhile. I've had a few jerks, but they are brushed off pretty quickly by not responding to them. But overall, it's been a very rewarding experience, and I'm not talking about the 100K Influence that one nice lady tipped me. ;)

Naturally, I want to share experiences with my fellow cabbies, so I come to the forum.

Now, I hope I'm not offending anyone here, that's not my intention. But Livejournal doesn't exactly have user-friendly forums. It took me two days just to figure out how to make a post, and I had to ask someone for that. So, being the computer geek that I am, I came up with an idea.

I'd like to remake the PTS Forums for you.

Please hear me out. I'm going to be getting a 2 year contract with a web hosting service, so it's not like I'd be going out of my way for it. My good friend is a Web Developer, and he has already offered to design the site for free (he's a fan of the Taxibots) and he is very good at it.

I would be using phpBB for the forums, using the existing PTS color scheme. This would allow me to have all of the PTS forums in one place in a format that is "user-friendly", informative, and have a professional feel to it. It would have a section for general PTS-related posting, as well as a forum for every server's garage where the dispatchers could moderate their own forums. We could also have an area where customers could come and give us feedback. I would also pledge to try and keep the forum information as up-to-date as possible.

What I would like to do is set up the forums for you to look at, and to get your feedback. I'd have them set up for a couple of months at a temporary location, and if everyone likes them, I'd move them to their permanent residence. I can either create a new domain name there, or I could probably use the existing one if you wanted to.

No need to rush into any decisions right away, I can have something put together for you guys to look at pretty soon so you can see it for yourselves and see if it's something you'd like to do. I would be proud to help PTS in this way, since you do so much for the CoH community.

I look forward to hearing your comments on this.

Taxibot Angus

1:32PM - Badge Tour

Badge Tour is tonight. See you there.

9:11AM - News and stuff

BT is tonight as usual. I need our Charters to step up and run things tonight as I will either be late or not there at all. I have to pick up the wife from the airport tonight and I'm not sure events will transpire such that I can show up on time or even at all.

Also, this sunday the RP Congress is doing a 'job fair' and general RP event in Skyway in Synapse's little park. The event is scheduled for 9PM EST. If some of our Charters could be there, it would be an opportunity for us to do a little recruiting, Q&A, etc. I will try to be present as well. Not sure of my schedule for then as yet.

10:06AM - The Badge Tour Biz

For the first time ever, we had enough turnout to attempt two zones at once last night. My thanks to Bebop for leading the second team. Things didn't go quite as well as I would have liked but that was largely due to inexperience on the part of our several new recruits who turned out for the tour. Now that they've got one under their belt, I expect things will go a bit smoother next time.
For next week, I will need our Charters to make a big effort to be there. Things may be a bit iffy for me. My wife returns from a business trip that evening so it may be difficult for me to be there on time, if at all. So I need you guys to be prepared to step up and run things. TIA.

10:59PM - PP Badge Tour

I had a GREAT time tonight on the badge tour. You guys rock! I can't believe we managed to get all 5 exploration badges AND three exit choices. Too cool!

See you all next week!

9:20AM - BT Tonight

Just a reminder that the weekly BT is tonight. I hope to see you all there.

9:19AM - RP Event last night

The event was a fun deal and yours truly even got to be a part of it. I was enlisted as a stage hand to tp actors off the stage. I would like to thank those Taxis who were able to make it and help out on short notice. I also got a /tell from Cuppa (who was playing a small role in the play) thanking the Taxibots for being a part of the CoH community on behalf of all the devs.

1:23PM - RP Event on Pinnacle tonight

There will be an event tonight in Galaxy on top of the Arena and then moving to Atlas starting around 8pm CST. Any Pinnacle Taxis who can be available for transport duty please lend a hand. More info available in the main taxibots community. I will try and be there myself to help coordinate.

11:57AM - Badge Tour

Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know that I might not be able to make the badge tour tonight. Unfortunately I have some real-life last minute taxiing to do for someone who's having car issues at the moment. I might be back towards the end of the tour, it depends on if the traffic is horrendous or hopefully just terrible. - Turbo

6:35PM - Badge tour

I don't think Checker Taxi can make the badge tour tonight, assuming there is one. Hope to see the taxi fleet in action the following week, though.
