offers the following options in which players can communicate their
suggestions and concerns:

to the site and submit their suggestions for game play, scripting, rule
--Regularly scheduled meetings: Every
week during regulation seasons, GOHA hosts have a meeting with the team
captains to go over concerns
--Captain as liasion: One important
function of your team captain is to gather and present team members'
concerns at the weekly meetings. Please utilize this.
directly. If he is not online, be sure to write your concerns on a
notecard rather than IM, because offline IMs are frequently not received
due to SL caps on amount of messages you can get.
GOHA forums are privately managed and provided by Jack Belvedere. The
use of the forums is to communicate announcements, schedules, rule or
script changes, changes in player status, and areas to enjoy socially
with your teammates or league members. Suggestions and concerns should
be taken to the Suggestion Box or your captain/manager as mentioned
above so they do not get lost in the forums or incorrectly addressed.
