    Actually, dst, I'm indifferent about the whole thing. From all your stalking and chat-log pulling, I'd think you'd know I have found another venue. I did not speak up on the cyber-sex thread because I didn't see what good voicing my opinion would do. You weren't listening then, you aren't listening now, and you are unlikely to ever listen in the future. YOU, my dear, are the hypocrite, a seasoned rule-breaker who has appointed herself one of the moral authorities of MagicDuel. The comic irony of that is deep. So... you stayed because you didn't see a single RP thingy. Good for you. When people started roleplaying, you were confused and disgusted. Admit it: outlawing the cybering won't make MD a better place for you. You hate ALL roleplaying. Yes, I do say if you have no training in art, you cannot appreciate art as an artist can. I've known scores of people to dismiss things such as modern art and oh, I don't know, maybe poetry, out of sheer ignorance. Your exposure to roleplay and the roleplaying world is ankle-deep, but you speak as though you have plumbed all the depths and intricacies of it. You have not. You speak almost entirely from ignorance, and like most ignorant people, you hate everything you do not understand. I wouldn't bother threatening someone as self-centered as you. You have always been quite open about your flagrant disregard for anyone else's point of view. No idea, do I? Hmm, whatever you say. I recall voting on your stigma, and I recall the events of that time. For the record, I voted against giving you the stigma... because I am a big softie. I have always known I was doing a thing that could get me banned, and I was always prepared to pay the consequences of my actions. You don't read well - because you are not paying attention - and thus you didn't see my remark about what Mur has done and his record of being lenient on this and other matters. Like people such as yourself. As nearly as I can tell, Amoran opened this topic because the rule seems to be something you and people like you pressed Mur to institute so you could get the people you don't like banned. You still don't have the spine to admit that your stance on this issue is really all about the people you don't like rather than any righteous horror at what they have done. Your concern for the MD community is entirely and demonstrably confined to issues and people that affect you personally.

    I can't help to tell this Tarq...woman are guilty for all bad things man do :D:D (for the good things too, but for the point here i will ignore that:P). Don't worry, i have great respect for you Tarq, you are an example for many, but you might be a little..way too influencible by girls, and thats not good, in general i mean. Indeed i noticed compared to other games that MD has a huge feminine population. Most games are played by 80% guys and 15% woman (where is 5%, guess). In MD, i don't have stats for sure but i believe woman population is HUGE. Not sure what made them register or stay more .. interesting. I was not blaming anyone. I know a lot of things, trust me. I could point out a few people, ban them, and everything would be solved, untill next time. The private room is something that is NOT fully dedicated to sex. Maybe...maybe...some will actualy use it for something else than sex rp. Years ago I had in mind something that now maybe will be done. A room, where the people inside have no name, nobody knows who is who..something like Player1 Player2 instead of their names. Chat would be tottaly private, no records. I was thinking it to be called the madhouse, a place where you can say anything, at all, without fearing the other person will use it against you later. Some need to talk, some need to listen. For example i talk with the taxi drivers about stuff i dont talk with friends, because i know that taxidriver will not remember me, will not judge me, will just listen and share an opinion. Its amazing how usefull it is to put my thoughts in order. I can't wait to explore a bit more the possibilities behind usable items. :D I allready have in mind how to create professions!! It can be also used to combine items, like raw materials into something else, or to give you ap,vp,ve, or anything else once a day, ..there are endless options. This feature is as important as the spells, trust me. Also limited cast spells can be assigned to items, so you could have like magic tomes that will allow you to cast a spell, but once you give away that book you will no longer have it. I am not sure yet how abusable it is yet. I think the next kind of item will be something like a healing stone, that will recharge your cretures (ALL)but just once every 4 days or so. I talk again too much and think of too many things at once , arggg....

    *turn rant on* OK, and here we go. For anyone here who is over the age of 15, most of us have had relationships IRL. When you see someone for several months to a year, what happens? So the question of intimacy is not weather it's really RP, because you would play the same as any person would feel after being together so long, it's the question of seeing it. The reason it hasn't been such an issue before is because most of us, yes me included, go to remote area's and after we are done scroll the text so no one is the wiser. There are many locations where you can sit for hours and there is a 99% chance you will see not see a soul. Two people got busted from DST's "witch hunting", and it downgraded into an outright pitiful sight of slander, degrading comments, and outright stupidity. Do I think DST was wrong for hunting them down, yes. Do I think they were wrong for being so rude, yes. The true depth of this horrid drama is that it affected the community as a whole, over two parties bickering. Until now anything of this sort has RARELY ever been spoken of. Even when walked in upon, the chat is cleared, and most people are lucky to catch the last line. I think this is another factor in the degrading of MD. Yes DST i love you to pieces, but I think you are degrading MD in this whole mess. Making such a big deal, and throwing such a temper tantrum that Mur has to step in and take measures, well its simply ridiculous. I don't only blame you though, I also blame those who do their private business in places people are known to travel. Worse yet, it that they are so wrapped up in themselves, that they don't have the decency to wipe the chat all you do is . . . . . and poof the chat is gone. Then the only way that it can be read is WHEN SOMEONE PULLS A CHAT LOG, which at that point who is more in the wrong? The party who was RPing, or the party who felt the need to pull someone's chat log, because I think its the latter at that point. DST you are a great part of the MD community, and I enjoy talking with you whenever we do. I just feel that this was a "little girl throwing a temper tantrum because someone wasn't nice to her" and it created a mass hystaria, and almost deffinatly chased possible newcomers away from the game with all of this drama.

    What Is Considered "sexually Explict"?

    And is Mur's response enough?

    I won't defend explicit RP, which to me is nothing more than smut - and I would know because I did a [u]lot[/u] of it... but never before I came to MD. I won't say it is "romantic RP" or anything else. It is smut. I regret that it offended some people, and I consider it wrong on my part to have given offense. I think Mur has gone above and beyond the call of duty to create a private room in the MD world, and it is quite clear he has been lenient with things he personally dislikes. When I came to MD, almost nobody roleplayed and RP was generally ridiculed or treated as burdensome. You, dst, like to say you never roleplay at all. Why you would bother to play a game self-described as an RPG is an interesting question to me, but in my opinion your claim that you do not roleplay completely invalidates you as a judge of what differentiates good roleplay and bad, or of what is roleplay and what is not. dst, you like to speak of cowards and hypocrites. That is amusing. Put your cards on the table, then. There are people you would like to see banned, so just say so. Don't bother masquerading behind rules and regulations. And remember, if you will, the time when a decided majority of the community wanted to see YOU banned... over matters far more serious to a gaming community than explicit language or bad roleplay. You still bear that stigma, and I, for one, have not forgotten why.

    Brotherhood

    Greetings! Creating a brotherhood is a nice idea but having little ideas is not a good one. First of all, as far as I know, When creating a brotherhood or a group, That group must have a mission/Vision or something and most especially the Goal of that group. Questions may arise like, What benefit will the players have if they join the group? What will they gain from joining such group? What does the group stand for? Camaraderie and friendship is mostly one of the benefits you get from joining any group. But its not enough to create it. What factors does the group have that players might get interested in? If you have answers to these questions and post it in here, players can see if your Brotherhood will stand a chance to be formed, I guess. Signed, Rockistah

    I want to make a brotherhood! I have little or no ideas about this. I don't want this to just be a male version of the sisterhood. Something more. Post your ideas here. Idea- The Brotherhood will be ONLY for the uninfected..... (unSMOOCHED) Once a Brother ALWAYS a Brother. Idea- You have to LOVE cheesesteaks Idea- You help getting more ideas Idea- It helps you find your role Idea- We dislike the sisterhood (as an alliance)(not as people)(as in we annoy them)

    The problem as I see it is simply this. We all have different morals and beliefs. In some societies and religions women don't go out in public unless covered head to toe. Yet in MD such restrictions don't exist. To some people the naked form is obscene and pornographic, yet some of the greatest paintings involve nudity and indeed some MD avatars even portray nudity. Its pretty much impossible to define what is sexual behaviour beyond perhaps the actual act itself. Kissing for example was mentioned. Personally I wouldn't find kissing as sexual. Infact people kiss in public in my country all the time. Its not against the law here. Granted it might be in other countries, but it aint here. Holding hands is also done and not against the law, although I believe it is frowned upon if not outright forbidden for a man and woman to do so in public in some countries. Oddly enough its ok for men to do it on the basis that men are just being friends. I guess if you happen to be gay in such a place you have one over on all the hetrosexuals Anyway, there is now a place where people can go to be 'intimate' or indeed just go to have a chat privately. You shouldn't automatically assume that people using such a service are using it for anything naughty either. So can we just drop this topic and move on please? There are plenty of other things we can complain about in RP anyway. Like bad language spammers and people that are immune to everything and the people that can fire lightning bolts from their rear end, not to mention the people that don't like muffins! Seriously, whats up with that?

    What Is Considered "sexually Explict"?

    Rule no :3454548748787.....9: Explicit sex should not be Rp-ed in any location in MD etc etc etc.... As far as i can remember no other online game( and i have tried a few) allows you to adress your opinions to the creator of the Game. i;m sure he/group of entities is/are in total myst and you don;t know anything about him/them. as you do here. You just accept the rules and play the game if you like it. You don;t start arguing about the meaning of the words in that rule just to stretch it;s meaning or to free you guilty conscience. So my opinion : this discussion is pointless. If you want to know what Explicit sex means get a dictionary!

    I agree with the unity, But really Rhaegar, i would have thought you had some more honesty. Cheating at something like this, and then posted and shouting in the mood panel about it... I would have thought you were better than that. Obviously i was wrong. Nothing more that a common cheater.

    The topic was opened because I have reason to believe that the rule concerning 'sexually explict roleplay' could very well be twisted to get certain people banned. Do I know the difference? Of course I do, I've been roleplaying for 10 years in just about every way imaginable including Renaissance faires. But who is to say someone will not waltz in on a random couple and suddenly exclaim that a hug is sexually explict or a kiss is sexually explict? That is the reason this topic was made, do you need me to make it clearer Dst?

    What Is Considered "sexually Explict"?

    [Moved to the appropriate topic] And not to be totally offtopic: why is this topic opened anyway? You're telling me that you have no idea what the difference is? See Tarq? This is pure hypocrisy. Now you have a place where you can do all those stuff. Why complain? Cause you have rules to enter there? Cause you don't have always the key? Or cause you cannot do it whenever you want because this time you might be banned?

    [quote name='Lady Ailith' date='10 January 2010 - 03:32 PM' timestamp='1263130354' post='52410'] No, the biggest problem is that barely anyone participates, so people have to resort to point farming. If MB players participated, your capital would have a very good defence indeed. [/quote] wot bs is that? even when mb was in its best military edition ever, and that was around the time when torch was implemented, we tried torch best we could several times, and never scored a single point! then why to keep up? not enough ppl on our side to cover up tactical disadvantage, 10-15 ppl, if everyone is active at that time (which never was case always was somebody unable to play due to rl) then when ya count up timezones, ya get 3 ppl online every 8 hours, now that aint enough to hold up defense, 2 paths lead to capitol, and defending at capitol wouldnt be possible coz somebody can wait up at heresy lane till regen hits and he can instatly bank points in base especially if his friends bring points to him, since everyone is banking points in mb, which is ofc shortest way to do it, there is no way that defense wouldnt get killed, if defense falls ya get negative points, if ya try to go offense most likely it will fail to, and ya can do that sort of tricks with that few ppl, thats just mp5, its simple to solve this problem, mb needs 20 more ppl and problem solved, yeah right... there will be always some mp3 almighty alt that will kill newbs which pick torch in mb and score for other land, same with mp4 wanna make it fair? citizenship is a must for this, and also cross mp fightin for torch holders should be placed up since some players never want to reach mp5, fine but if they compete in torch they should be able to be attacked by enemy torch holder regardless of mp level, also for torch ppl lore back entrance should be closed and torch holders shouldnt be able to travel from mdp to willows shop but instead take longer route through willows walk, then it will be balanced and mb will have chance

    That was the fun from it . All players from all lands should start to meet and make a tactic of their land and we will all have a lot of fun during TC. ( at least the ones that are not interested in prize especially but in their land pride ). This contest is meant to give us so much fun, only if we try to play it and come with tactics and actually have some enemies I don't speak of doing what LR had done ... 40 vs 16-17 is a HUGE amount of points ...( meah..we had..i can't find the word ) but of coming with tactics to contra-attack the enemy and start to[b] [color="#8b0000"]PLAY[/color][/b] [u]not [b]RP[/b][/u] the game

    As someone who might appreciate Roleplay and art in general on a more intricate level, I will say the following: I can see the values in roleplaying intimate behavior, even though I myself would never even consider participating in it. However, what happens between two people in this close and intimate way should be kept between these two people. The third person who is forced to participate just by reading or seeing what is happening is unpleasant. Sex is fine, good, and lovely. Seeing it is a matter of utter severity. I am not saying what you and anybody else do is not beautiful, but rather to the unsuspecting eye it is jarring. So this is why I say, as someone who supports Roleplay and all its facets fully, I sternly support this move to ban intimate behavior. Also, if anybody is a proponent of Roleplay, it is Mur. Why in the world would he outlaw a form of it without due cause? Awi

    I am grateful this was moved rather than deleted, though it all seems pointless to me now. dst and I are unlikely to see eye-to-eye on the topics of roleplaying and poetry if nothing else. I do want to add - Amoran and I have taken pains not to continue to, uh, be explicit in MD. I want to repeat my thanks to Mur for having the kindness not to ban us and to create a private space in the game for people who want such a thing. And I want to apologize to anybody I have ever offended with explicit RP. [b]Edit - for those who care to sound off, I guess we'll leave this topic open for a day or so. I will ask for it to be closed soon, though.[/b]

If they do, they certainly hide it well. The point is, the rule can be twisted to fit another person's belief on what is "inappropriate." It can be used as a tool to get another person banned and to be honest, I have every reason to believe that some people in the MD community will do just that. So I ask for someone to be specific, since we are going to be limited in what we can roleplay, on what is considered inappropriate. Edit: Because Dst deleted her post, I fixed mine.

    "Because no one was specific." I said nothing so far , but here it is : in this game everything more then touch on shoulder / head with no weapon ... it should not exist. There are other chats that are more private then this. Amoran: consider that this game really gives a lot of liberty, as in other games, all the parties involved in "discussions" with sexual conotations would have had the IP banned from the very first notice no questions asked. oh well, i guess that I was specific enough Please do not reply to me as I will not read this topic again , it makes me sick just thinking of it
