  1. This is very beautiful! Nicely done <3
  2. Hi Everyone   I was wondering if anyone would interested in swapping christmas cards this year. I know we used to do this before, and it was really lovely receiving cards from all over the world.   If anyone is keen, please inbox me so we can exchange addy's.  I've moved, so if anyone had my previous address it's no longer valid.   XX Shar.    
  3. Happy Birthday Muffin man Hope you have a truly wicked day ;) 
  4. Thank you very much - much appreciated
  5. Alone, drinking under the moon, under a tree.
  6. [color=#008000][i]Haha yeah that was probably me unless someone else also sent small wood carvings. Glad you got it Mur, I was a bit worried with Malawian mail being so useless that you didnt get it all. [/i][/color] [color="#008000"][i]edited for typos [/i][/color]

  9. [quote name='Seigheart' timestamp='1327067730' post='101359'] Okay, if Mur told Eon, dst, and Granos to go harasss someone until they have a nervous breakdown, then we have a problem. [/quote] [color=#008000][i]I'll just paste the annoucement:[/i][/color] [color=#CCCCCC][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Ann. 2172 - [2012-01-17 14:27:12 - Stage 11][/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]A "kingslayer" medal was awarded retroactively to the following players[u] for classified missions of obvious nature [/u][/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]. These include [/font][/color][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]actions[/font][/color][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif] [/font][/color][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]recent but also ancient events where [u]pressure was put on certain leading characters to test their strength or find their breaking point[/u]:[/font][/color][b] *dst*, Granos, Eon [/b] [color=#008000][i]Enough said.[/i][/color]
  10. [color=#008000][i]You're missing the point Lib. [/i][/color] [color=#008000][i]1) It is not right to send someone to "test someone's breaking point" and then award them when they succeed. It encourages bullying and harassment.[/i][/color] [color=#008000][i]2) It is not right to perform "tests" on someone without their permission. [/i][/color] [color=#008000][i]which leads me to point 3:[/i][/color] [color=#008000][i]3) If everyone else is doing something wrong, it doesn't automatically make it right. FYI Companies give you the option to check a box to decide whether they can send your information to be part of a marketing scheme.Facebook tells you that when you use whichever Application the information will be used. Its part of the terms and conditions. If you dont like the T's & C's you dont join. Simple.[/i][/color] [color=#008000][i]If Mur designed MD because he was a philosophical student studying behavioural patterns in a controlled environment, that would be a different story; . But that is not the case, this is for his own benefits. And you can be assured that if any other game creator was behaving in the same way my reaction would be just the same. I play games to relax, not to be a pawn in somebody else's game. [/i][/color] [color=#008000][i]Lol who is to say that Mur hasnt designed this as my own test? or your own test? This [...] is bizzare. I am done here.[/i][/color]
  11. [size=3][color=#008000][i]Ok; so because I have never been "tested" I should not voice an opinion? That's like saying because I have never been raped I should not raise my voice against it. Don't be stupid. Turning people into frogs in game is one thing, but performing tests or sending out people to find some one's mental breaking point is another From my stand point you are trying to trivialise harassment.[/i][/color][/size] [size=3][quote] Do I need a degree for scouting the human mind in my own way for my own wisdom? [/quote][/size] [size=3][color=#008000][i]Actually the last time I checked yeah you do. There is a reason why all research proposals go through an ethics committee. [/i][i]The human mind is a complex thing. Without a degree specialising in it, you are actually playing a dangerous game; because according to me, you don't know what you are doing! [/i][/color][/size] [size=3][color=#008000][i]What proof do we have that you will not "harm" your subjects? If someone had a nervous breakdown due to your constant harassment, do you take responsibility for that? Are you willing you pay for the therapy? [/i][/color][/size] [size=3][color=#008000][i]According to what you are suggesting any one can write up any experiment, perform it on people and say " Im doing this for my own wisdom". Infact according to your reasoning I could walk up to your house set it on fire and say, "I'm just curious what would happen when a house burns down in Romania". [ FYI I AM NOT GOING TO BURN DOWN MUR’S HOUSE , I WAS USING IT AS AN ANALOGY][/i][/color][/size] [size=3][font=Arial, sans-serif][quote][/font]​ My actions go no further from the characters you play and that character is as you pointed out a fraction of your true self.[font=Arial, sans-serif][/quote][/font][/size] [size=3][color=#008000][i]A fraction is a part of a whole, anything from 0.1% to 99.9%, you do not know how much of that person's RL character has been poured into the MD character. Do not make assumptions that the fraction portrayed is a small number. Not everyone has the ability to keep the MD persona separate from the RL persona, and it does not make them lesser humans because they cant.[/i][/color][/size] [size=3][quote]The really sad thing is that from all this it is you that have to learn the most, by 'you' i mean those 'tested'. I learned what i learned, but did you? Failing dramatically or experiencing unexpected turn of events in an online game is the perfect sandbox to learn something about yourself ad the people around you. If you prefer to shut yourself down and point the finger at my crazy experiments..i really wondered why and how you survived md so far[/quote].[/size] [size=3][i][color=#008000]I am shocked by your attitude. You really think you are better than the rest of us an feel that the rest of us are all in need of some weird Mur education. Obviously you learnt what you learnt because you are the mastermind behind the experiment, but if those being tested didn't know they were being tested, how where they suppose to know they had to learn something?!?! Perhaps if what they learnt wasnt to your liking then they remain stupid and uneducated? [/color][/i][/size] [size=3][color=#008000][i]I have not shut myself down, infact if I had not said anything about this then you can say I have shut myself down. [/i][/color][/size] [size=3][quote]Rights do not protect you from your own mind..sadly enough. You like to generalize and fit all this in the "crazy scientist" making experiments on "humans" category? Sounds so cool, thank you, but if you really want to understand what I said don't lose yourself in preconceptions.[/quote][/size] [size=3][color=#008000][i]Rights do not protect me from my own mind? Validate that statement with scholarly articles and the like. If you cannot, then that is a statement said by someone who would like to lull his test subjects into a false sense of security. [/i][/color][/size] [size=3][color=#008000][i]“Lose myself in preconceptions”....lets see.... If I am speaking from an ethical and scientific background then clearly I must be wrong because hey, Mur knows best.[/i][/color][/size] [size=3][color=#008000][i]Like I said previously you are gifted with programming skills amongst others, but it doesnt make you better than the rest of us. I respect you as the game creator, but rewarding people for harassment and bullying, playing mind games, na-uh that has taken it too far.[/i][/color][/size] [color=#696969][i]edited for typos[/i][/color]
  12. [quote name='Muratus del Mur' timestamp='1326991614' post='101236'] @Sharazhad, the breaking points are only in relation to the persons role. I constantly push and test CHARACTERS in key positions, in such ways that they will never notice or know it and hopefully when they less expect it. It has nothing to do with the person behind the character. [b]My role in the realm is one of a demon and i play it fully.[/b] You think i crossed the line? I only redirected certain forces to certain purposes, things IN REALM against things IN REALM. Why was it not "public"? First of all you have no idea what it is you are talking about that it was. Secondly it was not public because if the involved person would pass the test, the only possible reward for that person would be its own success. Thirdly, if you know you are tested you would not behave as you are and the 'test; would be influenced. Come on people, this is so obvious. [/quote] [color=#008000][i]OMFG. If I ever had a reason to leave a game this is it. Tell me Mur, do you have a degree in Psychiatry? Psychology even? Where do you even get off "testing" people? What is your basis for this? What do you hope to achieve? Do really you see yourself as a scientist and we are your labrats? [/i][/color] [color=#008000][i]You say that your "tests" have nothing to do with the person behind the character. I say you are mistaken. On the start up page you appeal the player [b]to take a part of their own character [/b]and give it a name. Who are you testing then if not the player themselves?! [/i][/color] [color=#008000][i]If you are going to be performing experiments on people, they should be able to decide for themselves whether or not they want to be part of this twisted scenario. I hope you realise that what you are doing (finding breaking points on your unknowing subjects or whatever other crazy experiments the MD populous is undergoing) is unethical and can be considered a violation of human rights[/i][/color].
  13. [quote name='Seigheart' timestamp='1326990392' post='101227'] How about you stop assuming things, Sharazhad. You don't know what happened. Stop making conclusions until you hear both sides of the story. [/quote] [i][color=#008000] Seigheart, you have to understand when a public announcement is made people will react differently and from a simple layperson's point of view, this stinks of mindplaying, bullying, harrassement. Worst of all rewarded for. I am quite happy to hear the otherside of the story.... answers to Yrth's questions that he posted above.[/color][/i]
  14. [color=#008000][i]0.o Chewy did you really just say that?! [/i][/color] [color=#008000][i]That annoucement basically encourages online bullying and harrassement!! It sends out the message that Mur stands for that because he: 1) sent out people to on a "mission" to "test breaking points" and 2) he awarded people for it! [/i][/color] [color=#008000][i]Why is Mur's judgement on this not questioned when this little "quest" clearly crossed boundaries? Have you forgotten that Mur is still human? The fact that he knows a sufficient amount of programming doesnt give him god-like status. He has no right to make such a twisted quest. I dont care if you ban me from MD, or throw me in jail for saying this but what Mur did was WRONG!!!! [/i][/color] [color=#008000][i]If the purpose of this mission was to get rid of the kings, why not do something similar to festival of pain, or make a forum post about it. These tactics are underhanded and unethical. [/i][/color] [color=#696969][i]edited for typos[/i][/color]
  15. [color=#008000][i]I also have some question marks about this announcement.[/i][/color] [color=#008000][i]From the announcement it is stated that players were put to a breaking point; which is assumed to be a mental breaking point, because any other breaking point would not be feasible in game. This would then mean that the dynamics of the game would be shifted from MD to RL as you are now "messing with the person's head". The fact that someone is awarded a medal for testing a person's breaking point is sick!!! I do not stand for this, it is wrong and twisted. Is this where MD is heading to? if you cant get them in game, play mind games?! Pathetic! [/i][/color] [color=#008000][i]If the kings left, it can not be assumed that it was due to in game issues only and shouldn't be awarded for it. [/i] [/color]
