    [quote name='Grido' timestamp='1354316572' post='126924'] Miq, if you did not wish to vote for yourself, how does that encourage anyone else to? Indeed everyone should vote, and it makes sense (to me, at least) if you're going for a position that you would vote for yourself. [/quote] In some cultures it's common courtesy not to vote for yourself (unless you're something like running for president).

    Becoming a citizen of Necrovion

    [u][b]Becoming a citizen of Necrovion[/b][/u] This is a world of spirits. Beings who think themselves anything other than spirits may not have what it takes to survive in Necrovion. You are encouraged to choose and develop your role as you see fit, as long as it doesn't conflict with the nature of this land. However if you consider yourself a spell caster of some kind, a shape shifter or claim some other powers, support it by using something real to this world. If you cannot, you do not belong here. Before you apply for citizenship you are encouraged to seek out and speak with as many Necrovians as you can- especially older citizens, alliance leaders and Death Guard members. [u][b]Service to Necrovion[/b][/u] In the course of events Necrovion may once again be threatened by outside forces. As a citizen you are expected to study the ways of combat and keep yourself in decent fighting condition - so if the need arises, you are able to respond. However, if the fighter's way is not yours, there are other ways to be of service to Necrovion and its inhabitants. [u][b]Encounters with Shades[/b][/u] If you happen upon a Shade, be respectful. We are all only guests in this land and have no authority over them. If a Shade interacts with you, consider yourself either very lucky or very unlucky. Proceed with caution. [u][b]Diplomacy[/b][/u] As a citizen of Necrovion you are expected to treat others, with courtesy and respect - have at least basic knowledge of current pacts, treaties and agreements and participate in ongoing land votes. [u][b]Protectors[/b][/u] Protectors are an important part of Necrovian infrastructure. New players are encouraged to adept to a protector in name, even if you are learning under someone else. Players of higher mind-power are encouraged to worship a Necrovian protector,as this can provide benefits to all. [u][b]Fortitude[/b][/u] As a Necrovian you are expected to solve your problems and challenges by any means you see fit. However should you decide to break the laws of this or other lands or break game rules, you do so at your own risk. Unless when acting under explicit orders from a Necrovian land leader. [u][b]Code of Conduct[/b][/u] [i][b]-Honor:[/b][/i] Necrovians are bound by their word. This word may be bent, but never broken. Speaking in half-truths is the equivalent of a Necrovian accent. However, blatant lies will not be tolerated. [i][b]-Control:[/b][/i] Everything a Necrovian does is exactly what they intended to do. Even if everything has seemed to have fallen apart around you. Remember, even this you can use to your advantage. [i][b]-Respect:[/b][/i] Name calling is not a Necrovian trait. Respect your enemies; show the proper manners and social graces - and knife them in the back when the opportunity arises. [i][b]-Mystery:[/b][/i] Never have all your cards on the table. Even if you are holding nothing back, people should feel as though you are. When someone thinks he knows everything about you, he will act accordingly. When you are mysterious, you are also fearsome.

    Explanation for Fang's jailing

    [cquote] Fang Archbane's punishment comes as a result of multiple infractions whilst he was the TK leader. When he was initially promoted, he stated that he knew the rules Mur had installed for the TKs, which we reissued to him anyway so that they were clear. He was told several times not to do certain things, but he disregarded the rules we laid out and did them anyway. He was told NEVER to use the treasury for personal items, and we even warned him that if he put any of his belongings (creatures, items etc.) inside, those would then be considered TK stock. He used the treasury to store 13 creatures, once they were stored he unlocked the Full Glow achievement and then took the creatures back out. For this we have decided to null his achievement and we have taken 3 creatures from him - those creatures have been stored where they belong: in the treasury. It should be noted that after the event, when questioned regarding this, he claimed he was testing whether or not he could get the Full Glow achievement if he deposited all of his non-maxed creatures into the treasury, we considered this an invalid reasoning for his actions. He awarded 1 WP directly to Seigheart for the Pumpkin Carving Contest although it was never announced that the TKs would sponsor the quest with the WP. When asked, he said he awarded the WP because ZenTao asked him. ZenTao's reason was that the anonymous sponsor was unable to award the WP so he turned to TKs. Fang Archbane also awarded ZenTao a WP for the Colourful Skulls contest although samon and phantasm (Caretakers alliance) announced that they would be sponsoring the quest with the WP. The stated reason for this action was that ZenTao wanted to use the WP to get out of skill damage and couldn't wait for samon. This last action took place after Fang had resigned as TK Leader. As per the rules, a TK should never (except when asked by Mur/Council or for forum posts/threads) directly award a WP but rather codes for them. Fang ignored this rule and has recently activated all the codes we have provided him. Except for the 2 used codes, we have now invalidated them. For this we have chosen to jail him for 1 week. There have been additional mistakes we have dealt with whilst working with Fang, but we have chosen to disregard them for now. MD Council [/cquote]

    Vote for the new head of Treasure Keepers

    I intentionally waited a little, so I could see what people's reasons were. [quote name='Hedge Munos' timestamp='1354154859' post='126791']...What's more...I just realized I still have access to the hidden TK forum...[/quote] Directed at whoever does indeed become the new TK leader - you might want to check who has access to your hidden forum, and clean a little. I'm fairly certain those with access are trustworthy enough, and it's up to you of course, but it's something to bear in mind. [quote name='Ivorak' timestamp='1354153869' post='126790']...ZenTao ... has proven ...[to be] levelheaded...[/quote]Do I really need to go through the discussion thread and pick out pretty much every post she's made and point out how none of them look level-headed? I agree entirely that we need someone that will remain calm and collected under the pressure of the position, but I would state that whilst she may have proven herself to be levelheaded with the position she currently has (I don't tend to interact with TKs, so don't know), she clearly does not remain so with the added wider public interactions. [quote name='Ivorak' timestamp='1354153869' post='126790']I do feel that having someone newer to the realm (but old enough to be well experienced) in a position of power as a good thing. And I think ZenTao is due credit for sticking it out through the tough times.[/quote]So both "sides" are focussed on the age thing? Merits to both new and older players, but apparently Zen is an older player anyway, so age discussions are moot. [quote name='Change' timestamp='1354161022' post='126792']...Go look up 'logical fallacies' and you'll see why. For instance, some examples: Hitler loves strawberry icecream therefore strawberry icecream is inferior to chocolate icecream. The Holy Potato Book is true because it was written in 250BP (Before potatoes)[/quote]Lightsage is friends with dst, dst is evil, therefore Lightsage shouldn't be voted for - you mean like that one? Aaaaanyway, as for I wanted to say for myself; It would seem that it has indeed become a 2 party race, which is a bit of a shame, but when you get some of the candidates voting against themselves early on (CotS, Miq), it begs the question why they went for the position at all. So then we are left with ZenTao and Lightsage (since Hedge has also now voted against himself). Since a lot of people are focussed on age, well, they're both old accounts (2008, you say for Zen, Hedge? huh.) so neither gets any 'bonus' points on that one. For the record though given two people I would view as equally capable for the role, I'd pick the 100ad player over the 1000ad one. Whilst I wouldn't let it interfere with my decision on who to vote for, it is rather....[the word eludes me]...that Seig and Fang (more Fang than Seig) seem pretty much of the opinion that the world will collapse in on itself if Zen doesn't win. New blood makes the institute sound like vampires, just putting that out there. 'New blood' is good, as are 'old hands', both have been argued, both arguments are perfectly valid, and equal in measure for me. 'New blood' puts fresh energy into an enterprise and another view that might not have been looked at in that way before, but they have to learn how to do it as it's new for them. An 'old hand' can get running with the job as soon as it's theirs, there's no need for a break in period and they can just kick on and continue, but the system (however it is now) will likely remain the same, and some people seem to have issues with how it is now (and certain things previous leaders did). I find it mildly amusing that both sides state that the person they're voting for is organised, active, responsive etc, amusing not because it's not true (I'm fairly certain it is), but just because it implies that the other party is not like that. It'd be like saying "Lightsage is not the son of the devil", you therefore imagine that Zen probably is. Or "Zen handles TK business with lightning speed and never asks for anything in return" implies that Lightsage would either be slow or ask for some form of payment. Might be a bit late to get people to "fix" their previous posts, and at the end of the day, it's their right to convey such - even if it is unintentional, but future voters might want to bear that in mind. Maybe actually put points that are a reason to vote one over the other, rather than stating necessary qualities for the job which they both share. All in all, aside from a single thing, I find them equally viable for the position. The thing it comes down to, or back to, is public interaction en masse - from what I've seen, Zen seems rather lacking in this aspect, whereas Lightsage, I wouldn't say excels, but he's certainly better, and it's certainly something the leader of TKs has to be good at. I vote for Lightsage.

    I understood it as mocking of my post (the evil part), which is your right I guess, but wanted to point out that it wasn't properly mocked because I didn't base my argument on "Dst will corrupt Lightsage" but that Lightsage is someone who is "evil" (let's put it your way ) and that due to friendly environment all over the top, he'll be free to be himself much more than some others. Some believe in Lightsage, I don't, simply put.

    I vote for Zen as well. Lightsage definitely has more experience with MD itself. Zen however has stuck with the TKs through a lot of rough times so far and still managed to produce a respectable character in the alliance. I believe it is best to let one who has already put alot of time in the TK's in before letting someone outside of it take over.

". And when u post something serious " hey it is very funny so Offtopic " and when u post funny " hey its very serious not suitable for lighthearted players they might get heart attack so deleted ". And then u need to comply with all those Ten trillions MD rulz. U can use the above tricks on a Noob but it won't work on me. Yeah keep throwing all the stones at me for i shall build a castle out of those stones and will fight u all from there ...for iam the Lord Tipu. What iam trying to achieve is to remove the word Poor from the MD itself. Every yr its kind of a fashion rich donating to poor. But is this a solution? no not at all ..all its shows is how big is the difference btw poor and rich. Come on guys lets donate enough so that there shall be no alms for poor next yr. Lets the alms for poor 2012 shall be the last of its kind. LETS DO IT ......gggrrrrrrrrr.....
