    The Community

    These thought have been brewing in my head for some time now and i have been trying to think if i should even make this post or not but lucky you i have decided to make this topic and tell you all what i think. If you don't want to read it then fine don't read it but i think this will benefit everyone if they read it so please at least think about it. The way this community acts some times is just jaw dropping i can't believe how negative. degrading, hurtful, and down right rude how some of the people here can be. The way i see some people talking to it is sickening, you act as if they are suppose to automatically be the best at everything here, you dissect every word someone says to just beat them down lower and lower. [b]Not everyone does this but i think a good majority do.[/b]On the forums i have seen this time and time again people being so condescending and rude, offering no help to a person what so ever, they just criticize that person. Instead of trying to tear them down why not try to build them up t be be better? constructive criticism . Like i said not everyone does this but in a lot of topics its there. In fact this community has caused many negative things that can only hurt themselves..why? here is a example: [url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/10949-resignation-letter-of-yrthilian-king-of-golemus/"]Yrthilian's resignation letter[/url] I understand if you have a point of view and want to fight for it, [b]you can still fight for it without throwing out vile things to say![/b] There's many words that you can choose from, why be negative? what is the point? And if someone post something negative don't say something negative right back, a negative plus more negative give you more negativity, counter it with a positive post. I'm not saying be all smiley and what not but choose your words carefully, and if that person continues to be negative ignore them. I see a lot of people won't be able to do this for various reasons, their egos, they can't swallow their pride, they thing they are better then the other person, they can never be wrong, they think they know everything etc... please just check yourself and rethink what your about to post: Is it helpful? is it constructive? Am i being rude? Am i being hurtful? Not everyone in this community is like that but enough are that this community destroys its own members and once all the members are pushed away what then? If you keep destroying things your going to be left with nothing. Well i guess that is all i have to say from what i have seen i'll leave you with some finals thoughts PS. This post is simply suppose to be a mirror for the people in this community so they can look at their actions and words and perhaps realize that maybe they can change what they do in one small way that can help. I am not singling out anyone this is what i have seen from many different people, [b]This community could be great with all of its great minds, free spirits, and hard working people why stop that? this is cliche sounding but working together isn't that bad, just put away your hate for others there is enough of that in the world why let it have this amazing place?[/b]

    Like I have said before, everyone needs to back off of Fang. Let him do his thing how HE sees fit. If you don't like it, bring it up to Council. Not this blamefest you are all so intent on having. He is doing his job JUST FINE. Despite what you all think, he is doing the job just right. HE may not be acting how you wish, but the job itself is being done. Instead of telling him all the things you don't like, why dont you actually try to help?

    In general I think Fang is doing quite a good job at managing the TKs, sponsorship is given quickly, rewards are delivered fast as well, but I also must agree there are some points that could use some improvement and as the planned review date has passed and this topic already pretty much turned into a review topic I'll give my advice on what I think is important, even if most has already been said one way or another. First you should try to be more formal, whenever you announce something as the head of the TKs you should try to stick to the facts as much as possible and leave out any emotions.The task of TK leader is a serious job, so you should take it seriously. How you act normally is completely up to you, but when things are getting more serious you should act like it. If necessary even split Fang and the TK leader in two different characters all together. Secondly you should try to make the treasure keepers able to run completely independent of you. Imagine for example your computer crashes and you're unable to connect to MD for several weeks, in that case the TKs should be able to continue their work until you return. Even though this brings some potential risks you should be able to trust your TKs. Furthermore if something does happen and you deal with it well it also gives you an opportunity to prove yourself. If you handle things well it'll only be proof you're a good leader. I really think you're able to do really well as head of the TKs if you try to keep this in mind.

At this point i just dont give two DSTs so its done and done. Ill have my Treasure Keepers do all the deliverys until im revived. Im done with this argument.

If the Council doesnt like me, they can BOOT me and get someone who would do the job better, and the only one i can think of off the top of my head is ZenTao (Let this be know T-T If im to be booted, i nominate Zenny as the TK Head until further notice) [quote name='Pipstickz' timestamp='1352201185' post='125057'] Mur went out on a limb all the time.

Im not too sure myself, but i would have to guess its the second O.e; [quote name='Nimrodel' timestamp='1352220564' post='125076'] Also, I believe that fang is just being cautious about his job and about his posts, believes that his posts would make things fun. I don't think one need to behave maturely to take care of their work. I don't think he'd give the sponsoring part to his 'crew' if he didn't trust them and I'm sure his fellow TK's know that.

    At least Fang is letting people know why he is delaying stuff. We can all sit on the side lines and say this and that about how he should and shouldnt do things, but really the last time I saw people do that all that's happened is now quests get much crapper rewards. Yay. "The Community" seemed to be all about that though so guess I'm a minority viewpoint on it. Keep chiseling away by all means... Z

    I'll be on Fangs side for this cause I like to be on the losing side of things (what's the point of winning if there was no challenge/what's wrong with losing if there was?) and well I am favored to him overall. [img]http://www.digitalmobile.in/styles/default/xenCODE/OldSkool/troll.png[/img] In my view Fang will break down under all your pressure (or maybe we like to think that) and end up letting his TKs reward stuff on their own. In fact in his reply to ZenTao he already said it would be possible. And he already stopped when he said he would be doing all the sponsoring, that's no longer the truth. With that said, do any of you even want to see Fang be a good leader? Do any of you think you can do better and want to apply for the position?

    Well i would have preferd to have done this myself. I at least waited until i got a reply before i made it public. So yes i have decided i should step down as king. I have many reason some are personal and RL issues some are in game issues. As most of you know i have been on-line less and less this is for RL reasons more so than anything else. I also felt it best to step away from what i see is a big issue and lack of respect from comunity towards the kingship. Players like Eon whom have a complete disregard towards land rule and cannot be punished for it is what broke the camels back so to say. Yes i could have used a tool to hurt Eon and i do not speak of the needle. But I fear if i was to use it in the way i planed i would be punished again for it. But that is only a small matter. The position of King was to enforce land rules. when there becomes a lack of respect for the kingship the king cannot enforce anything without support. I had made request to have players punished for things they have done and they were not done or take too long to do that the community forgets about it to the point of the punishment being pointless. For now until the voting is done i will still act as king to keep things in order. I do not wish to get into arguments over who didn't do what or what could have been done by the king I just wish to step away while i can be considered a fair king before i do something drastic and damage my rep further Just to add I do NOT blame Mur for any of this. When i say lack of support yes Mur and council are part of it but the main support comes from the community so in turn i blame the community and myself for failing in this.

    Heh... and here I am Your Type is INFP Introverted Intuitive Feeling Perceiving Strength of the preferences % 56 62 38 33 You are: * moderately expressed introvert * distinctively expressed intuitive personality * moderately expressed feeling personality * moderately expressed perceiving personality Famous people of your particular type Immanual Kant, William Shakespeare, Ludwig Beethoven, Pearl Buck, Arthur C. Clarke This test gave me some interesting ideas. I can tell things about someone (in md) that are not similar to the things analyzed by this test, but together they could work interesting. Also, as i was answering those questions, some of them i am not so sure i know the answer myself. For example are you at ease in a crowd of people, well i am , IF nobody knows me , like a club for example, but i am not if the people in that crowd know me.... so the question is not really well put. Other questions are hard to answer because in my mind i think i am while in reality i am not. For example, the question if my desk is nicely ordered, i was thinking yes it is, but when i looked to find the mouse under a pile of papers to click yes, i realised its far far from being anything but in order on my desk, regardless how well i know what is in the apparent mess.

From Judge Nad: Seigheart : 7 No one : 5 Zleiphneir : 6 darkraptor : 7 From Judge Grido: Seig - for originality, I'll give a 8/10 Zleip - I'd award more if this were a sculpting competition, but as it is, it's not (in my head) in line with the idea of the contest - 7.5/10 DarkRap - 6.5/10 nothing wrong with it, just no flair outside the box [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Sorry, didn't see No one's - 6/10[/font][/color] So, it has come down to a mere six tenths of a point between first and second place.

Oh, my prediction earlier was pretty spot on I suppose. Fang succumbed earlier than I thought he would. Fang, perhaps we can talk sometime about your new job, there are some possible concerns I may have to express to you in person. If anyone else has concerns, perhaps voice them here or do as I plan to.

    [quote name='dst' timestamp='1352282259' post='125132'] Actually he can't do that. fenrir did it cause he was full head of TKs. fang is just a dummy for the moment. If the dummy proves a good one, he'll get full rights. If not he'll be kicked and someone else will be appointed. But NOT by him! There is absolutely no logic in him nominating his successor. Imagine that ZenTao is nominated, she gets probation as well but she does wrong so she nominates a 3rd person. The 3rd person will get probation as well and so on. No. That can't be cause it will screw even more the screwed system called TK. [/quote] Hopefully, it won't go that way. And if you think TK is a screwed system, how would you like to come up, be the leader and use your apparently better and more appropriate ideas to fix it? Don't say something which you can't support with your own actions. Fang is still the leader (even if he is on trial probation) if you have forgotten, so I believe he DOES deserve some respect. To be honest, The TK's are running perfectly smoothly.The community is just putting Fang under too much pressure and criticism, in my opinion. If Fang does anything horrendous and if there is a major problem, you can all throw whatever shoes at him if you like.

    After reading the 35 posts before me and how the conversation has completely changed, I feel like to do nothing but laugh! @ Fang : You're doing a great job as far as delivering the rewards are concerned. Just try to be more formal and to the point; trust trust your boys a lil' more And [b]please don't go crazy[/b] when serious stuff is at hand. @ Curiose: Your time is over. Even if you DID do better, no one cares anymore cause the time's long gone. @ Eon: I don't blame you for killing Fang. Trust me, I should know how much a pain in the *** he can be (Fang, if you're cursing me now, read the above [b]CAREFULLY[/b]) @ Falronn: There's my good man! @ samon: Definitely agreed! @ Nimrodel: In some places I agree, but otherwise not exactly... @ everybody who's still reading this: If Fang's on trial probation, he'll still be on trial no matter what you do. So even if you dislike him, please stop pressuring him. It'll make everyone's life easier. If Council believes he can't do his job well, you'll get your way right? And I believe Fang is fine with that too, since he already nominated Zen to be the head of TK's after him. @ Menhir: I TOTALLY AGREE! Which is why I'm clicking the "Post" button now
