    New shop branch

    Maybe a new shop tab full of useless items like tomatoes to throw at people or rotten fruit, odd items that we can use that have little to no real value other than mild amusement... I have over 500 credits with nothing to spend them on...
  4. Edited to keep names out and taken from his FB... It is with great sadness that I have to tell you Cutler died on August 22, 2014 of an autoimmune disease called primary biliary cirrhosis. You will be missed old friend...  
  5. I understand there are other Alliances to such an effect, and look at the state of things--stagnation. For things to move forward there has to be a change of ideals. That said I am not condoning RP, but merely stating that there needs to be a reasoning behind it, a purpose that makes sense in regards to what MD is. And for clarification, there are Alliances, and then there are Guilds, guilds are the ones with coded purposes. Just because something else exists does not mean something else should, MD is about that unique set of perspectives, if there is a reason behind it which there usually is (although may have been lost over time--which is another discussion all together) then it is fine so long as it sits grounded in the foundations of MD. As Dst pointed out, you do not need an alliance to RP. There is nothing wrong with having fun, but an alliance is making a visible impact on the realm, therefore must have a purpose. An alliance that has lost or blatantly failed its purpose should not exist, case and point the Necrovion Sentinels. I would like to see this succeed, but it has to be for the right reasons. (publicly or privately)
  6. Ok, originally, I like the purpose of the CoE.... But this, no offense, seems like a load of nonsense. You have a lengthy explanation detailing a lot of things which is great but ultimately pointless. It seems you are saying a lot without saying anything at all. It panders to pointless RP with no real purpose to the realm. Say if you were to legitimize and study the night system and become authorities and push and fight for it to be fully implemented like the original CoE was aiming for then yes, I see a point. But in so far as to what is actually here, it is all just a bunch of RP for the sake of RP and pandering positions for the sake of ego. - An Alliance for the sake of just role playing for the sake of role playing with no basis is pointless. - You need a real purpose, IE the night system. - Have one focus not multiple IE a military for the sake of a military aspect. One focus is what is needed there are other alliances for that. - Just because it was like this in the past does not make it good, it died in the past for a reason. This may seem harsh but ultimately less is more.
  7. The location and what it is, is not a spoiler. Its been in the announcements more than once. Information that is given and announced publicly is never a spoiler. How to solve it and working with others on it is considered a "spoiler".  
  8. Just do it, even though personally I disagree with things generally like this that is still no reason for me to tell you not to do it. People no matter what you try to do will try to stop you in one way or another for various reasons, most of them being over petty ego issues though. The most important thing about all of this though is that you are actively getting people involved in something, doing something be it the training or even working against it, hell even I was tempted to react to it. This action and reaction aspect often times killed on the forums (mainly due to petty egos as mentioned before) is one of the most important things to MD, especially now.  So in short ignore them, go and do and remember you are making things move one way or another, and think to yourself what the hell have the people who are trying to kill the idea been doing to get any motion in MD? Take pride in this and do it.
  9. To be honest I came back with the intention of observing things, I did that for a short time watching and seeing what MD has become, to which I contacted a few people with the intention of helping MD. This is something that I have always done regardless of public opinion. The only difference now is that it is an official position and I am not in the background. Regardless of the announcement or anything to do with powers grated ect... This is something I would be doing regardless, It is who I am and what Granos is to MD. I have never needed authority or tools to make changes to what I saw needed to be changed I always found a method in which to achieve what I sought, the fact I now have tools to enact this with the assistance of others, just puts things in the public view.  As clarification, I do not need tools to perform this and never have. If the community as a whole once actions have been taken feel that I should not have this type of position then by all means when the time comes petition to burn me at the stake, but until that day comes merely take the chance and see what happens, you may be surprised....
