  2. daaamn, that's a long time
  3. Happy third anniversary of a thousand days as Code Guardian to the Wookinator! I suppose that means it was two thousand days in June...sorry for missing that one xD
  4. Worked. Thanks
  5. Not at home right now but I will check to see if that works. Thanks
  6. You have no flash enabled. Press the "Secure" button at the top of the page in the URL page. Go down into "Flash" and select allow. And reload the page. That should enable it?
  7. is happen to me too sometimes , sometimes the circle with Magic Duel in middle appear and stay 10 - 15 seconds after that everything go fine. also i just tried , even if everything is fine from start but i start refresh page 2 or 3 times , my page go like Blackshade without Loading screenloader....
  8. Ok. I do hope so.
  9. I still have wish points. And will have gold coins.. will conduct quests whenever I have time
  10. chat and everything else works fine. no matter the account i use it does this. Also yes i cleared my cache and still did not work. It doesnt seem to matter what scene as each of my accounts do this so i cant move with them or anything. Items are working fine just this appears to be the only problem i am getting. Also doesnt show my stats
  11. I said similar when Nim talked to me about it and its saddens me too
  12. Cause you will have even less reaaons to come back to MD.
  13. Why?
  14. Instead of making me jump for joy (for the opportunity as I know what goodies you have), this really saddens me . A LOT.
  15. So I am planning to empty majority of my Creature and Item inventory as I dont have much time to devote to MD. I feel the creatures and items i own would do better in the hands of people who are going to be more actively involved. So I plan to put up a credits/coins auction soon... in about a month or so... Maybe like a halloween event? Start saving guys... Because this is big. Almost all the contents in my inventory are going to be sold. So once again, START SAVING!
  16. Remember when Mur introduced something called "vote power" (or something similar)? I liked that idea. It was not that well implemented since I never knew the criteria on which the power of a vote was decided. But it might be something we could look into it. Maybe if we'd have a set of rules from which to choose and apply to a vote (few details below) then we might have a working system. Details*: there is something being implemented for a land, so all the citizens of that land should get a higher vote power. But in theory everyone should be able to vote because what if the rest of MD might be impacted indirectly by the change/whatever that's being voted?
  17. Only if you know something is codable -- and know how -- only then do you have a sense of how much willpower is required for it to manifest...and, regardless of where that willpower originates (who votes) it needs to be somehow transferred/channelled... Similar concepts apply to the idea of choosing the right judge/s. Empathy is a must; balanced empathy (avoiding bribes/vested interests) is just. (haha must/just that rhymes)
  18. Then I'm glad you're not power-hungry, or we might be waiting for a rewrite of MagicDuel in Lisp.
  19. In MD, at a higher level, we have a notion of, he who wields the parenthesis wields the power. Loosely translating to lamens terms of, he who codes, decides
  20. >If the voting is narrowed down so much that it only applies to a certain group, the vote is inherently bad. “Ankh-Morpork had dallied with many forms of government and had ended up with that form of democracy known as One Man, One Vote. The Patrician was the Man; he had the Vote.”
  21. Image please, otherwise I cant help Only the scene loader? Tried clearing cache? What scene?
  22. I'm certain that absolute democracy will under all circumstances lead to absolute idiocracy, given enough time. I firmly believe that all voting must be limited to certain topics, but not certain people. If we allowed any sort of interference about the question who gets to vote, the "loud" ideas will inevitably overrule the "quiet" ideas, and history shows that the loudest ideas have almost always been the worst. Taking away the ability to vote from certain groups would in turn lead to this group being ignored, since their voice stops to count, and thus it also stops to matter. You can freely take rights, choices and property from those people without ever getting bad results, on the contrary, you will get better results from the people who dislike the non-existant group. For the same reason, some things must be exempt from voting, call it basic human rights or civil rights or whatever you will. In fact, i think that it's much better for the continued existence of a society when you don't allow people to vote on laws at all, but only on representatives for some form of parliament every once in a while (3-5 years, imo), who are in turn personally accountable for the decisions they make while in power. The representative towards the outside should be elected by the parliament itself, as primus inter pares. This would allow people to lead in a meaningful way, and give the general population the option to actually influence the way they live. Funny part is, all of us always exempt a very large part of the relevant population from all decision by sticking to the notion of borders. Small wonder no country actually cares for 3rd world development or immigration rights, after all, those people can't cast a vote. So, in my opinion, all votes need to include the whole known population to be effective in making everyone's lives better, in all other cases it's always about making the life of some group better, usually at the expense of another group. TL,DR: I disagree with the question in itself, because i'm quite sure that there is no vote that should exempt anybody at all. If the voting is narrowed down so much that it only applies to a certain group, the vote is inherently bad.
  23. As topic says........ Chrome Screen loader for the scenes images isnt working. Firefox however appears to be working just fine. Not sure if this is a bug or if it was already discussed about. Is anyone else having the same problem?
  24. No, no freezing involved nor any unfreeze was cast on it. This was noticed because it is a lose exp fight thus nobody should do damage. Joy joy, what a surprise of me crit
  25. This is mostly the post I wrote, minus some finesse ---- On 9/3/2017 at 5:19 PM, Aeoshattr said: don't think that players leave in the early 0-2 days stage, I think they leave in the middle phase (a few days into the game, before they reach 'end-game')... and that's an entirely different problem altogether. I am happy that you are concerned about us wasting time, primarily becuase it means you care. The reason I am asking these questions is not to know what I should implement asap, but to know what the current players of MD think. Originally this idea came to me while I was playing another game that offering google login and their standard. Talking to people many many many of them opted for google login over the games standard login. Part of this was the ease of login, but others gave me reasons along the lines of not having to remember many passwords as they just use their google account and it all links in. While I personally dont like this idea, as I have previously had issues with un-merging accounts, I understand others may enjoy such a facility. To speak technically, I am in the requirements gathernig and prototyping phase of development in MD. This means that I, in part, sit around in bed with a cup of tea, a sketch book and lots of paper. Drawing and planning out what needs to be done, at some point. The primary focus of this at the moment is a three part rework of the base of MD. The first, as currently announced, is to remove flash completely. Its archaic and slow and people dont like it. The second is a boring rework of the internals to make sure we can continue to develop over the next 10 years. The reason behind this is that web technologies change and we need to make sure that our code isnt going to just be deprecated. The third is something I have talked about least, and is a rework of MD's UI. The primary aim is this is to increase the horizontal real estate of MD. Since it was originally desinged screens have gotten larger and have a much higher pixel density. This is important since we have a massive vertical scroll which is annoying. The current horizontal resolution I am working to is both 1280 and 1366. The first being a "new" size square screen and the latter being the standard for 15 inch laptops (also the size of my 6 year old laptop I code on). This is actually a big change from originally being 800 pixels wide. By asking about these technologies that have recently come about (specifically in this case the login via X services). We are looking forward to future users and peolpe who havent yet joined. Not to mention the potential future of MD. It is important not to design MD in s way that potentially would prohibit such a technology that might be important. Therefore in this stage I am asking lots of questions about what peolpe would expect from a site. We probably wouldnt implement something like two factor auth, but if people expected it perhaps we need to? Lots has changed, and lots will change. We just need to accept that these things do change and that we need to be aware of some of them. Technologies rise and fall and fads come and go. But MD, MD is here for the future. Hopefully you dont see me asking these questions as something that I will immediately implement. But merely as sounding the group to see what is something we might eventually add.
  26. The main thing with this is that I would first need to investigate what we are allowed to store after allowing a user to login with such a method. I wouldn't want to store a users email if they don't want that. But I do expect that if a user initially created a facebook/twitter/etc account we would allow them to migrate to a "full" MD account. Like dst said, I like this idea. We know it isnt. Im not sure what you point is here, can you clarify? Actually, at least from my point of view, not much work has been put into the game. Mur has spent a decent chunk of time but actually most of my work has been on the backend and doing work to prepare for MD. Actually I have spent a decent number of weekends sitting in bed with a cup of tea and a notepad. Maybe I will scan some of it someday We don't, or at least I don't, have numerical figures but I think it's quite easy to see what happens by watching. I spent a good couple months invisible watching. Perhaps slightly voyeuristically but the old saying of, you observe it and it changes. From what I saw, the point where we lost many players is the point after they had done most of the intro, story and started to fight a bit. It takes a certain person to be able to continue from what we have given (very little) and direct themselves. This was originally one of the filters but is something that we both (Murry and I) feel needs to change. This isn't because of anything that has changed in MD, but RL. Mur and I cannot fund the continual advertising that was originally powering the stream of players into the game. Since there were so many players coming through the number that stayed because of the continual stream to fight and battle and talk with. Since we have turned off the stream it dwindles and the "stream" stopped. So instead of getting new players come and go into the alliances we didnt. ---- I wrote a massive post here but the forum has eaten it
