  2. [quote name='Chewett' timestamp='1362639962' post='133559'] Legally all the artwork belongs to MagicDuel and therefore you are not permitted to rehost them. However provided you remove them as soon as you sell he artwork and state that you are using the images in a way that conforms to fair use policy then it should be fine. Did you speak to the artwork approvers for the legal aspects? [/quote] I hosted these remotely due to your concerns regarding limited space in the forum gallery and chose Picasa for its privacy settings. Currently this album is viewable by anyone
  3. [quote name='Ackshan Bemunah' timestamp='1362628283' post='133557'] What made you change your mind about display? [/quote] The brief poll on this topic and points raised in discussions with several individuals, including my conscience: -> People are still far less likely to [i]consider[/i] buying based on a very subjective description than if they see an image up front. A picture is worth...well, several gold, potentially. -> Avatars belong (in the mind of the public) to their wearers; seeing an avatar in a shop doesn't devalue it --> Not so; seeing a
  4. Edit: I misunderstood Miq; he asked what I would charge to sell others' avatars for them. Again, this is to be determined case-by-case, if anyone is indeed interested in such an arrangement.
  5. As previously mentioned, I'm setting up an avatar shop. Current stock: NEW: COMMISSIONS! If you have avatars cobwebbing away in your vault, I can find them a good home for a small commission. Details can be worked out individually. Species: So far I have seen more high-quality humanoid avatars than strictly human forms, but this should be no vast impediment to their sale. Pedigree: Most of these are from Generation 13 or before, and all have "MagicDuel" listed as their creator. This is not a slight on current artists but rather a recognition that most 'seriou
  6. Setting up an avatar shop. Suggestions?

      Sell them for a price that the buyer thinks appropriate, then decide whether you like their price.

      An avy is worth a credit to turn into the shop, but if you do it just to move credits around, there has been a proclaimation that such is not allowed.

  7. Is the deadline the beginning or the end of Monday? Also, will you make the entries public when the judging is complete?
  8. Fang, you’re very emotionally attached to the resources of your land, and you want to give “all the people, and all the lands” the tools to prevent such resources from coming to harm. From the response of those people who have spoken up on this topic, it seems that many people here are not interested in your suggestion. [quote]I see it, and i have a goal. In all honesty, thats all that matters.[/quote] If you’re serious about implementation, Fang, you could do worse than enlist others’ support.

Whip up poisonous serums, strength enhancers, decorative amusements, medicinal poultices, cement, fruitcake, potting soil, leather, glass bottles (which were actually planned), polish, or something I wouldn't dream of.

  10. Rhaegar, I’m sorry I was unclear. Your “constant that will influence, inspire people to be involved from day to day” is [i]exactly[/i] what I meant by “one point of focus for the whole realm, that we seek some overall goal to the many (nonetheless enjoyable) quests currently running”. You suggest two fighting competitions and gesture to the ‘grow a plant IRL’ quest. I’d argue that even more of a unified purpose would be preferable..but raisons d’être don’t grow on trees. With any luck the community will find an overall goal

  15. [quote name='Chewett' timestamp='1356974508' post='129373'] And i dont think thats a fair assement. Its all rubbish. The entire idea of a poll is skewed. All you guys are doing is offering random opinions with nothing really to back it up, its useless commenting really, as useless as the data itself. Espically when the aim of the poll is for some specific outcome.[/quote] If either Maebius' or Awiiya's hypothesis ("In any "community" the most vocal tend to be the ones who are dissatisfied with something"; "In a forum, the strong opinio

  17. Another option is the search feature at the top of the MD page. Not only does it look more like MD, it lacks the character limit for search terms, and it indexes the Archives and player pages as well as the forum. Features particular to the forum search (posts by a certain member, within a range of dates, in a given subforum..) can be compensated for easily enough (to find posts by someone rather than just about them, include part of their signature in your search; include the date/name of subforum/etc.)
  18. What do you see as a use for this skill? A small % chance to create an extra item for each execution of the recipe? Some benefit to using the item itself (you've brewed oodles of tea so you know how to drink it such that its effect lasts a couple minutes longer..)? An 'improved' version of the product (sturdy and/or very clear glass rather than plain raw glass)? Maybe some of those are excessive, but any purpose helps toward implementation.
  19. Trust issues with who talking to whom about the quest? While a list of able veterans willing to help with various sorts of quests would be a nice resource for quest makers, an automatic PMing function doesn't seem right for MD. The buddy list/saved PMs/mood panel already straddle the borderline between convenience and realism; this would only worsen the divide. And this functionality has been [url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/7137-new-rules-regarding-md-script-and-item-customizations/"]brought up before[/url].. Too much consultation could degrade quests' originality,

More people would help, but there's a lot more that matters: [quote name='Liberty4life' timestamp='1350322371' post='124037'] back then things were happenin, nowdays majority of players are passive [/quote] The RPC era had its flaws, but at least people were actively seeking something.

  21. I would have promoted this in-game but for time/connectivity issues with MD proper. From the +reps I assumed some people agreed, but had nothing further to share on the matter. Why want to view loyalties? It's a way to independently verify who's in what alliance; the wiki relies on the generosity of players for its updates, which is at best a credulous approach. The same goes for making the rounds and asking ally members.. It's an interesting inequality: all four main lands are "open" with information not available for the others..which seems to clash somewhat with ot
  22. [quote name='Chewett' timestamp='1349346356' post='123060'] Im not actually raising a point or an opinion here. What im merely stating is what has and is happening. Mur has previously said, repeatedly, that he dislikes unoriginal stuff, however i made the new point of view that MD has been shaped by its players more and more recently, where mur has stepped back more and is not guiding the realm directly like he was in the AL and such. [/quote] What are some examples of unoriginal things he has disliked?
  23. [quote name='Chewett' timestamp='1349249608' post='122950'] Mur has always discouraged outside and RL stuff, he likes unique stuff. However that doesnt mean that we must obey, this isnt Mur's world anymore. [/quote] is in reply to the suggestion of the name Yggdrasil. Original words for MD-specific concepts (fenths, erolin, aramor, Marind, winderwild, etc) are generally preferred, though this is no rule by any means (liquid dust, Hollow Soul, heat..)

  24. Beyond security letters, something's up (down) with [url="http://magicduel.com/players/crash%20test%20dummy"]player pages[/url]: "error 28 from storage engine", nonfunctional AL snippets, no-show creature artwork; internal links on the home page are broken, too.
