    Grido

    Wow this is derailing fast and looks to be counterproductive to the point and goal in mind when this topic was made by its creator. "I'm not going to just tell you what to do, Grido, because I can only tell you what I would do. I want you to do what you would do. " Really? Didn't he already do that? Doesn't that premise include the possibility of a return to old behaviour, implying that yes, while his behaviour (as you seem to have deemed it necessary as to require 'redemption' of sorts) may change as a result of this topic, that you are kind of trapping him? I want you to do what you would do.. That's like a (now ex-) girlfriend saying to me that 'if you don't know what you did wrong, then there is no point in me telling you'.. [spoiler]In case you didn't get that, it means that admittance of fault is not really admittance of fault if defendant is not aware or does not acknowledge fault, especially since, looking at this poll, the defendant has a majority support... What you want is a bent knee, you're not getting it[/spoiler] I sincerely hope you see the discrepancy in that..

    Grido

    honestly at this point this post in my eyes has become: I don't like Grido's actions. So I am going to make a topic about what a bad job he is doing. I won't state what bad things, nor will i state how I see to correct them, only that he should [b]know[/b] what to do. In my opinion, your trying to say in this post that your opinion matters SOOOO much that this post was needed. As far as I have seen it Grido has openly tried to connect on whatever base of disillusion you have for him and his position. If anything it only furthers his upstanding reputation for taking the high ground. IF there is any point to this so far sensless topic, it would be nice that it would be made, instead of leaving everyone to their own assumptions. We all know what happens when people assume. In most cases it will only make you look bad for it pip.

  4. So, we quest coders just need to get busy and adapt! I was getting pretty bored with nothing else to do anyway.... (Back to the drawing board, keep smiling, don't panic, think happy thoughts, look for the silver lining, make lemonade from life's lemons, wear red so the blood doesn't show,......) ps. There are always pickles.... well, usually.

    That's rather a thing the respective creators have to take care of, not the system. Otherwise i could, for example, use a clicky in necrovion as starting point for my newbie quest and demand Necro to be easily accessible.

  6. I have long been an advocate of "papers are a load of XXXXXX" and vehemently oppose windy in getting new players to go get papers as soon as they want. Papers dont improve your character, they degrade the experiance, Because in the end, if your roleplay doesnt convey your character to the other person, Then its a pretty bad roleplay. The many times i have roleplayed, I have never once had papers. The reason being is that i dont want someone to come up to me, and be able to see the reams of things iv done, and the intricies of my character. Because thats not how its like. You dont walk up to someone and immediately know their character and back story, You learn it over time. Papers are not needed to roleplay effectively, and at the early stages, i dont really think you need them.

  9. No, that's not allowed. But we're not really strict with that, as long as it's just a low value, nobody will bother. Your trades will be logged forever, though, it might happen that something against this behavior is implemented.

(Of course if Grido is uncertain on what he has done wrong then my way of thinking is in a loop, which I don't disagree with, after all, this is just my own personal opinion.)

    The Drunken Corpse

    Thank you all for coming to this event. Mur even made it to pass out some goodies while the party went on. Unfortunately most of the games took to long and there were no winners. Thats ok though we will put this gold to good use in other future games and quests. It brought many people to the Tribunal and an after-effect of that was very low ap movement through the Tribunal. We hope that more events put on by the Caretakers will continue to bring people to the beautiful surroundings of the Land of the East. We enjoy greatly when people come, visit, and wander about, helping others to travel through what normally takes a long time to navigate.

    With the new MDA entrance cost a player needs at least 39 active days before they are able to enter. (Without any tricks to gain AP and visc at -80) Therefore new players won't be able to get their papers. Is it supposed to be like that? Over a month of active days without being able to get your papers seems a bit long to me.

    acutally he did it for fun and for testing he said mind if I curse you I told him hit me with ur best I didn't think he'd actually hit me with his best -.- and no, I'm pretty sure I'm not getting it as a punishment, as he keeps telling me that 'when contact takes the things back, come to me for your reward' so I'm being rewarded, not punished =D EDIT : also, I never get stat gain, so even with the 2800% boost, I should stay at 0 stat damage...

    This thread is, at this moment, shouting at Pip for having a divergent opinion time. This thread is not about my opinion, so I am putting a stop to this discussion. Grido: Do you understand what [u]I believe[/u] you to have done wrong in the cases of dst and Phantom Orchid? I request that only Grido answer this question, and only with a yes or a no.

  18. I think there should be another bit to that idea to stop people from being citizen of all lands for a while to get bonus on all lands. Imo, the land loyalty should only decrease the AP needed for traveling if the loyalty in question is the highest of all the loyalties of that player, or in the calculation of the AP cost, loyalties to other lands get subtracted from the land loyalty that's currently used. If the loyalties of a person change, the land should notice that, and not give them bonus anymore.

    I am asking how I might change your opinion, you are answering if I make an honest attempt at it. That does not actually answer my question. So I will repeat, I would like to change your opinion of me, I am willing to make an honest attempt at it, but what can I actually do to change your opinion?

    If I ask for opinions and then leave only the option of "Yes", "No" or "Null", the only opinions I'm going to hear are "I agree with you", "I don't agree with you" and "I neither agree nor disagree with you".

    First off, Rendril is correct, this thread was not intended for discussion of punishment. Now the rest. [quote name='(Zl-eye-f)-nea' timestamp='1317378315' post='92937'] Whilst saying this isn’t a personal issue, the way the introduction to this is written does come across as very personal and quite vindictive. Not only that, but you caveat wanting discussions relating to this coming about to stay in their respective threads, thereby removing discussion of the issues here that caused you to create the poll in the first place. [/quote] In regards to the introduction: I assumed anybody who's been even glancing at the mood panel lately knows my opinion before reading this, and would take it with a grain of salt, so to speak. As for the discussions, I merely intended to keep this thread free of arguments about whether or not Grido was right or wrong in the Phantom or dst case, because while they are relevant to the topic, they invite flame wars, derailments and general unhappiness that you can go to their respective threads to receive. So no, I was not trying to say "NO TALKING", because there clearly was talking, and plenty of it, most of which seems to be constructive to me. Besides, regardless of what I say, you're free to post whatever you'd like, as you know. [quote name='Deatznce0' timestamp='1317383856' post='92955'] There is nothing I can really add to this. When a person does a single good in the community, it is usually ignored and unnoticed but when they do a single wrong, everyone turns their head to point the finger. I apologise Pippy, unfortunately, this time I cannot assist you with your position. [/quote] I am not offended, no worries. I appreciate your input, no matter what you voted. [quote name='Grido' timestamp='1317399858' post='92977'] Pip, ""As a personal note, no matter what the outcome of the poll is, my opinion will not change"" just to be clear for myself, regardless the outcome of the poll, you still think I'm in the "No" category of the poll? Is there a way for that opinion to be changed by me, or will it remain that way regardless? [/quote] I said my opinion will not be changed by the poll, but [b]you[/b] certainly can change it. ________________________________________________________________________________________________ Thank you to everybody who voted (or thought about voting, but perhaps didn't get in before now), even if your vote was Null. To me, 72 people is a huge number in MD, in a 24 hour time period, and I appreciate every individual, as well as the majority opinion. I will not seek action against Grido, nor will I endorse such action, and if he does make an attempt at changing my opinion, I will gladly do so if I believe his attempt is an honest one. I would like to apologize to SilverBlades and any such individuals that may share his extreme view on this issue or the game in general: I can tell you that a single change would most likely not affect your opinion, so: sorry if I got your hopes up. Anybody who may still have comments to share may do so, as I will only ask to have the thread closed once activity on it dies down (if I remember to <<).

  27. The price gained from them would be variable. The money gained from the sale would have to go to the account with the creatures on them - simple sale principle, have the creatures, get the coins. I'm pretty sure that item trades between alts is now restricted, meaning you'd then be unable to send the coins from your old account onto your current one. You're still welcome to sell them, you just might not be able to profit from it on your new account.

[/quote] He did it, but not with the purpose of changing my opinion. If he continues to act as he has recently, then so be it, my opinion will remain unchanged, but I believe Grido has the ability to see what needs to be done. MD often leaves you directionless, with your own gut feeling as your only lead to follow. I had hoped this would be much the same, and I could see what Grido really thinks is necessary. [quote name='Metal Bunny' timestamp='1317553031' post='93092'] That's like a (now ex-) girlfriend saying to me that 'if you don't know what you did wrong, then there is no point in me telling you'..

Grido asked if he could change my opinion, I told him yes. He asked me how, I told him to make an honest effort. I am asking for him to do something without being told exactly what to do. If he cannot do that after surviving this long in MD, then I'm very surprised, but if he [b]decides[/b] not to, then that is his choice, and my opinion will remain as it is.
