  1. Thank you for a delightful contest - I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was good to see the MD Facebook being visited by so many.
  2. Edited up to not be outbid Changed to 5 silver

  4. In Australia the creater of the item is presumed to be the copyright holder unless they have ceded rights to another. [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright_law_of_Australia#Ownership_of_copyright"]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright_law_of_Australia#Ownership_of_copyright[/url] A [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copyright_notice"][color="#0645ad"]copyright notice[/color][/url] (©) is not required on a work to gain copyright, but only the copyright owner is entitled to place a notice. It is useful in publishing the date of first publication and the owner. Where a copyright notice is used, the onus in infringement proceedings is on the defendant to show that copyright does not subsist or is not owned by the person stated in the notice. The grey area resides in the TOS of many forums and websites that state anything used or published on them is now the property of said forum, website. I fall under North American copyright rules but they share a commonality with Australian rules. If I display a work on my own website and list a copyright notice on it - linking to said work off another forum does not take my rights away. I still own the copyright and at the MOST only will sell FNASR (First North American Serial Rights) to a publisher or sometimes donate them to a particular forum/website on anything I plan to use sometime in the future. I have elected not to assert those rights on anything written for Magic Duel consumption - these are just fun, quick dashings for me. But Aranna might have different choices for the story written. Aranna if you elected to put the story on your own site, or an author site (like Author's Den) you would not be giving up the copyright and could link to that external source from here if you wished. That would preserve your future rights and still display the creative work in question. As an author I understand your qualms but wanted to let you know there are ways around them that still keeps your creative work belonging to you.
  5. I agree transparency guidelines would make sense Princ. As you state there are a number of quests with non-published winning works. That is a valid point and a rational discussion starter. Much more so now that everyone who has been here more than 60 days has at least one WP. Discussion on the general framework might be in order.

  8. "Men have sought to make a world from their own conception and to draw from their own minds all the material which they employed, but if, instead of doing so, they had consulted experience and observation, they would have the facts and not opinions to reason about, and might have ultimately arrived at the knowledge of the laws which govern the material world." Francis Bacon

  10. [url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/6686-wps-gone-bad/"]http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/6686-wps-gone-bad/[/url] found the forum topic dst (used google to get it) So this is a continuation of your previous questioning last year about setting out for discussion points when you see iffey rewarding of wishpoints?
  11. Could you link it please? It has too many 3 letter words to search on. And I've read the announcements and did not see the four names in them as being bad WP abusers which is what I was asking about.
  12. Magic Pirate posted their winning story so apparently there was at least one story. Do the other two have to post their stories to avoid punishment? And other WPs being rewarded - do people now have to save off logs to prove worthiness of them? I question merely to understand and decide if it is ever worth it to win a WP or will I in future face an inquisition if I happen to win one. That now appears a bit scary to me but I am new to the game so perhaps there is past bad deeds performed by Innocence, Magic Pirate, Aranna, and Karak that I am not aware of that makes their story contest suspect? Do they make a practice of spending weeks and weeks on setting up WP trading scams? Seems like a lot of effort for little gain to me.
