  1. When you upgrade your computer to handle Skyrim on full graphics, then spend more time on MD instead >.> (true story, haven't even started playing Skyrim on this computer yet... So I really don't get all the arrow jokes...)

  2. Hello. I am making a quest for relatively new mp3 and mp4 players. I have recently found that several of my friends are in need of food and shelter. If you are a new player and you have found me then ask me about the quest. I will give you an errand. Usually it will be small items or small amounts of resources. I may ask you to collect the item if you are capable. For example I may send water to ignnus and you can collect one water and find him. Once you find him you have to give him it and say that it was a gift from C. Confirm the errand is done and I will send you the reward. It will be a small reward unfortunately as it is a simple quest but it will be something new to newer players. Regards, C.

  3. Today a little gang of friendly faces ambushed me and covered Bob in Ribbons and stuck me in a santa suit with a bell to ring. So, despite my grumpyness, in this spirit I will do the following: I am opening the xmas alms for the poor collection. Over December, in return for my ringing my bell and being a goat in an itchy santa suit, you can donate silver to me and once a day I will disperse this to the poor of MD. I will give a silver to anyone and everyone I can, from the donations I receive, who I see has less than 5 MD silver in currency. If you want to donate, just pass me your silver. Once a day I will distribute it across the poor of MD. I will be at the Path of Lonliness with Bob most of the time as usual. I currently have 44 silver. One donation from Sagewoman, one from lashtal and 12 of my own silver is the starting pot. So my base is 30 silver that is mine, anything i have on top from now forth is donations to be dispersed (unless I sell something causing my base to rise - in which case i will update this thread) In the case that there is more silver donated than poor to give to, at the end of december I will donate whatever is left to where ever you all decide to put it via a poll. If anyone has comments suggestions or what-not then this is the place. Z

    Morphs in shop

    I assumed that once this discussion was started that the announcement in the MD Shop regarding Morphs became moot. Heaven forbid that anything is ever changed to contradict any past announcement! In the first place, I think that announcement means more along the lines of, "Morphs are not hidden somewhere in the Shop, so don't bother looking for them" rather than, "Morphs are not and will never be for sale." I could be mistaken though.

  5. Udgard Said: The Golden Protector For the player who is viewed as performing the best in the role of protector(MP6) during the past year. The player does not have to currently be a protector. The voter should take into account the actions of the other protectors in the realm, rather than automatically voting for their own. Best can mean how helpful the protector has been, to how effective they have been in recruiting worshippers, this is at the voters discretion. Amoran K Kol I will put forward this nomination, and I am NOT from Loreroot. [Edit - I see that yes, she was already nominated -- that's why I didn't bother before --, so this whole exchange is moot.] Adventuring award: I'm not allowed to nominate passant, so the choice is clearly to nominate Esmaralda for adventuring award. Sorry duxie, honorable mention.

  6. No, I didn't nominate anyone because I didn't nominate. I suggested people to be nominated by others because I don't agree with how the awards are being done this year, but I can fire off a list of people who deserve the award and play the game every single day: -Lashtal -Azull -Jaden Dew -Maebius -Arkken -Ivorak -Phantom Orchid -Marvolo -Innocence -Guillak -Amber Rune -Tarquinus -Brulant -Passant the Weak -Kiley You can suggest that I feel hurt that I have never been nominated, but I don't. I appreciate the nominations I am given, but to me it's a simple medal. What I care more about is that there is a huge amount of people who are never looked at or thought about, this year especially, in certain categories. They play the game in their own unique way, and though they don't interact with tons of people on a daily basis, and try to do big massive things to get themselves recognized - they deserve at least to be nominated.

  7. Okay, in response to you Burns - what I'm noticing is that a total of maybe.. 4 people are speaking against in group nomination, where as we have many in this thread who are FOR in group nominating. This is where my confusion sits. This year things are not quite as they were the previous year, many of the people who spoke out against in-group nomination last year have not even posted in this thread. We have lost members of the community due to RL, and we have gained new ones that don't necessarily agree. The argument that the MD Awards Ceremony is a popularity contest is correct, but banning or limiting who nominates what means that certain people who SHOULD get nominated, get ignored and overlooked. What should have happened is that people should not have been allowed to nominate people (who have won an award) twice for the same category. (Nothing against Zleiphneir, but an example is that he has been nominated - and has won already almost every year for the role player award, and others have been overlooked. And also, Amoran has been nominated again for the best protector award. While I appreciate that people notice that I am doing a good job, it would be fair to give others a chance too, wouldn't it?) You know the people of your land better than anyone, and unfortunately there is no way to stop the MD nominations from being a popularity contest. I just feel that you banned the wrong thing this year and this is why I chose to argue against the way the Award Nominations are being run.

  10. [quote name='(Zl-eye-f)-nea' timestamp='1323812538' post='97864'] Whilst you might find it fair for people who have won not to win again, I find that hugely unfair, on everyone. If it were me, I'd be annoyed that someone had assumed I could not beat the person who won last year, and wasn't even given the chance to compete against them. That situation would be a farce. [/quote] It's an awards ceremony, Zleiphneir. You are being awarded based on how you have stood out or for things you have done in game. It was to my assumption that it was not a beauty contest or a cut-throat competition but rather a ceremony which grants recognition to players for good things they have done, how they have played the game, etc. Correct me if I'm wrong, please, so I can go and host my own awards ceremony in a fair way. [quote name='(Zl-eye-f)-nea' timestamp='1323812538' post='97864'] You bring my name into something, use me as an example and state that I caused people to be 'overlooked' just by the fact that I exist and can be voted for. I don't know about anyone else, but if I were one of the people you are talking about being 'overlooked' I would find that incredibly insulting. Z [/quote] I did bring your name into question to point out that you have not only won an award each year, but that you have been nominated each year for the same thing. There are plenty of good role players in the game and many of them are ignored for the more popular or more influential players such as yourself. My point is, if people are allowed to win year after year after year, we have a repetition of the same person getting recognized - thus limiting the view of the community regarding newer players who have new stuff to bring to the table. I did not insult you or your roleplay, I stated instead that your nominations and rewards are repetitive. That was purely an example, and you chose to feel insulted by it.

  11. I believe I know what happened with this.. No one asked or argued the point of not being able to nominate people of your own land. It limits the nominations, and gives the person nominating only a certain range of people to nominate. So perhaps people just ran out of nominations? I believe the way this is set up is a complete farce, and honestly.. I don't like the way it's being run. No one asked for the limitation, and people have argued it clearly, so why is it in place? Do you really need 20 people to say "this is stupid" before you decide that it's a stupid idea?

  15. I feel that putting limitations on those who you can vote for is redundant. People will always vote for who they think are the best option, the criteria they vote for is the only non constant in this situation. Their votes will always be skewered by personal opinions and will always be subjectified. Why not remove this silly restriction?

  16. Whose decision was it to not be able to nominate from one's own land? Did this come from Mur or the council? I object to this since there are people I felt deserved to be nominated and now I can't.

  18. [quote name='Rhaegar Targaryen' timestamp='1322500020' post='96773'] It's kinda wrong to enter in the "corruption" possibility seas and to stop on the first checkpoint. There will never, or rarely, be true "winners" of these categories, and if you try to limit it to force out some kind of "proper result" it will only turn bad. Make it fair, and let the mass pick whom ever it wants to pick. [/quote] I couldn't agree more. The revelation that weight was given to certain voters in a previous election or elections was very unsettling to me - it seemed to me that a ruling clique of veterans wished to dictate the course of the awards. I don't know how realistic this is to suggest, but ideally I think we should have one vote per player ([u]not[/u] per character/account) and no more. A restriction on minimum active days makes sense to me, but apart from that, I say formulaic determinations of vote counts should be avoided.

  20. Amoran, you can argue about what an awards ceremony is all you want. Your way isnt a fair way, keep trying to say it is, I dont agree with you. I gave my reasons why. You don't like it, fine. I get your point, I don't agree with it in the slightest. I never said you insulted me, might want to re-read. Z

  27. I question that if nobody from other lands think enough to nominate them are they truly deserving to be? (I'm not saying they aren't, just that I'd question it). There are 4 days left of nominating, plenty of time for people from other lands to nominate those you suggested. The decision was made based on the response from last years awards, and that no objection was raised to it before nominations went live.
