    apophys got a reaction from Princess Katt in The value of Life in MD   
    In my opinion, revival should not require any silver/gold cost to the dead player. Because he/she didn't choose to die, and could not protect against it.


    The cost of revival should be solely a cost of time and effort, and should be guaranteed to work if that time and effort is expended. A community effort to revive someone should be available as a shortcut, but there should be some way to guarantee a revive without anyone's help, for example, a dead person can automatically revive and respawn at the paper cabin after a month, with all creatures drained of vitality. Or it could be done via illusions.

    Of course, a person may choose to get a quick fix and buy the use of a revival item, but this should not be a strict requirement to revive.

    [color=#008080][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]Part of what has bothered me about death in MD is the response of others. "You're dead. Figure out how to revive yourself." Now I may be taking a bit of a reality view of it, but isn't that a bit off to tell a dead person to revive themselves? If someone is dead in reality, they can't restore their own lives. I know MD isn't reality, but there should be a greater effort made by the people around instead of snapping at the dead player to fix their own problem. The dead person is limited on what they can do.[/font][/color]

    [color=#008080][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]Another part that has bothered me is the lack of "justice" for the one that was killed. There is no justice for them unless they managed to get a screenshot. When I was killed, I had no clue what happened until I ended up in GoC. No hope for a screenshot then. All the player has to do is sit silent and they've gotten away with it. Yes, there are ways for retrieving chat logs if you're know someone with the spell for it. [/font][/color]

    [color=#008080][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]Then there's the cost. I don't have 300 silver or 20 gold to revive myself nor do I have the cash in reality to come up with it. Instantly my game would be over due to real world funding issues. At least when the torch was running a body had a glimmer of hope as Maebius mentioned.[/font][/color]

    [color=#008080][font=lucida sans unicode,lucida grande,sans-serif]Perhaps what the realm as a whole needs to do is figure out a set of requirements, rituals, etc that [i]may[/i] work to revive a body. I'm not saying to do the work for the dead, but at least offer a [b]possibility[/b] of restoration. Hope goes a long way when it comes to motivation.[/font][/color]

    I may not be offically or unoffically part of the CoE, but i do care about their revival, and therefore offer my help. I hope you three know this, and accept my help.

    Im very sporadic about timings, its easier if people contact me about stuff and i try to attend anything.

    This council decision is absolutely absurd. Particularly the part about the Council overriding Mur; that I find simply laughable.



    Regarding BHC, the only reason I don't enter is that the entry fee is quite steep, with not much chance of a return on your investment (particularly for me, having only 1500 attack and pretty much tokenless).
    If it was free like the regular HC, or cost a renewable resource (like fenths), I'd be participating in every single one.


    I find it very sad for Eon to be resigning, because in my humble opinion he managed it well. Most importantly, he won his contests fairly, without abusing his powers, and I respect that.

    Most creatures you can't upgrade nowadays you practically couldn't reach back then, either.

    The rest of your post I agree with, but this I very strongly disagree with. I had about a dozen maxed creatures (not aramors, but trees, elems, birds, a water daimon) by the time the mp4 heat limit was increased, and most of the increase I put into my 3 angies, which I grew to one level before max. In mp4. Without any exploits (I don't consider GGG-style training an exploit, and I already had a max elem and at least one max dark archer by the time I discovered it.)

    That can't be done anymore.

    apophys reacted to dst in How to un-friend a fossil and some noobs too   
    So...today while dispering the stench at GOE and keeping the Wookie company our great Forum Admin & Master over all Mods told me this:
    "if you can't left join, you're no friend of mine"! (don't ask about the context).

    I realized that we know how to befriend a fossile but o unfriend it...

    So, let me make a list (small one cause that might be updated if i remember more) of how o unfriend some of the fossils:

    Chewett:
    -don't know how to make a left join
    -insult tea badly
    -tell him George Lucas is releasing a new Star Wars and viewers have chosen that wookie dies in the end - and you of course voted for that ending
    -tell him you can code prettier than him
    -make a topic like this one

    Greedo:
    -tell him the Wookie is sexier than him
    -tell him you have more GCs and SCs and rare crits than him
    -SHOW him that you have more GCs and SCs and rare crits
    -tell him Jonn was sexier


    Burns:
    -tell him the princess he has rescued has a shameful disease
    -tell him the white steed he's riding is a mule
    -tell him that sporks are the most awesome things in the world
    -tell him he's sexier than Greedo


    Z:
    Hmm..tricky...I don't think this guy can be unfriended....once you have him as friend he sticks to you as scabies!

    Shadowseeker:
    -tell him you found the meaning of life
    -tell him Mur was really impressed by your color choice for your rubber ducky
    -tell him Greedo is sexier


    Amoran:
    -tell her: dst said <insert whatever in here> about you

    Mya:
    -tell her tree loving is forbidden in most countries
    -tell her sugar and spice and everythign nice is already taken by the powerpuff girls
    -tell her Firs is back

    Rhaegar:
    -tell him Firs is sexier
    -tell him Greedo is sexier

    I'm not necessarily 100% sure of One Leader to Rule Them All. What I like most about the idea, however, is that it gives us a central point to go to and talk with. And it allows us to give feedback in a far more manageable way. We don't currently have that.

    Its all well and good saying "yeah we know what to do" I can claim that council needs to work on angiens and bring X Y Z into play. But the thing is that not everything can be done right away.

    I really like the Development Focus threads because it gives us a chance to properly say "we would like X to be done first" because there isnt the time to do everything.

    What about we, publically, appoint someone to collect ideas, and plans things together, and who relays these to the council? Personally i would think that they will be swamped with all interesting and cool ideas, none of which can be made because of time constraints.

    How many of you honestly issue personal requests to council asking for this and that? Maebius mentions it. I was always under the impression that asking for personal stuff was considered bad form for Mur, and therefore iv applied it to council. But knowing people, i would bet numerous emails will still be asking for X and Y stuff.

    Again, it falls back to, how much time do council have, and how are they currently using it, feedback is nice council

    [quote name='awiiya' timestamp='1339712908' post='114806']
    And yes. I do think it's a good idea for the Council to answer questions on the spot. It's not like we'll be asking them to decide the future of MD. More like, Who are you. What do you do. Do you see what we hate?
    [/quote]

    Whats the reasoning for "on the spot" answers? I see little use of them, apart from trying to "trick" them into revealing themselves, by saying some form of personal information that reveals who they are.

    I can see a conversation saying, "yes we are watching" and pretymuch ending there, i dont really see what you want to ask. I personalyl want more information about waht they do, and what they are spending time doing. If X is taking a lot of their time, then we as a public could say "yeah just send offensive messages to everyone asking for personal requests" or something along that line.

    Si, without knowing what they do, its relatively hard to judge if they are doing it badly. Its very easy to say someone is doing a bad job, when you are ignorant of what they do. You may say, for example, that chewett is very slow with doing forum related changes. But you might not know that i also handle forum backups, hosting details including talking with them, Skin modifications to fix forum related bugs, adding/removing features that invision decide need or dont need to be in it, run the wikia as a representative to wikia.com, and manage md-archives on the admin side, and make backups for it. Not to mention the various works that needs to be just done as the forum admin such as banning and other parts.

    There is no one really that can judge what im doing, since no one else knows how long i spend on it, and such.

    [quote name='apophys' timestamp='1339720616' post='114814']
    As a first step, we need to get the council to sit down and talk.
    A discussion, in game or on the forum, is absolutely necessary to gather information about the situation at hand. For this, the council needs a permanent representative, even if this representative remains anonymous and is unable to make any promises or decisions. Master of Ceremonies would do for now, but probably not permanently.
    [/quote]

    again, people seem to think a "representative" is a good idea, maybe it is, who wants to be spammed to death.

    Personally, i think awiyya would be an interesting rep, since they would be dealing with a tonn of rubbish. Although, my only concern in "nominating" them as forum rep, is that the timezone is bad for the majority of people, where most MD's are in EU time-zones.

    I'd assume whoever the council nominates as their mouthpiece (if they choose just one person, they do have the option of discarding annonymity as a whole, remember) that whoever they choose would become nothing But the mouthpiece.

    ie still part of the council, in that they get all the correspondance, but they no longer get to make any decisions of their own in council matters.

    Logically, I would assume they just get whoever is doing the job of forum mouthpiece to extend the role into MD >.>
    But that is just me <.<

    All that said, from my interaction with the council I strongly suspect that it is organized so that certain types of tasks are handled by individuals. So it isn't necessarily the whole council that isn't working right.
    [/quote]

    again, we dont really know how the council works, a meeting or post to at least explain a few things to us would be nice. I dont really care which format its in, just information is wanted by us peasants lol

    apophys reacted to awiiya in The Council Meeting   
    tl;dr I want a meeting with Council to discuss things. They must choose a time within a week.

    If you've been reading the forums you've probably noticed a number of things, the most of which is that I and a few others have been critical of the Councils decisions. Though others may not have been so direct, I myself have claimed that the Council is running out of time.

    Time until... what?

    Until they lose our (my) support completely. What does that mean? That means that their authority, though secure in mechanical ways, will lack popular support.

    What does that look like? I would start organizing rallys, I would post speeches describing exactly my qualms, I would imagine creative ways to express my disdain for this anonymous body that has held such a tight grip on the future of MD for so long. Things might get rather ugly rather fast. It would be in game, I would play by the rules. My goal is not to rip MD apart.

    What are my issues? This may be a conversation for another place, but a quick run down:
    1. I don't think anonymity has promoted accountability. Lines of communication between the Council and the MD people have been slow and out-of-game. We can send you emails, but sometimes they take forever to get a response. And when was the last time the Council posted on the forum? There needs to be a conversation between us and them, and right now there isn't.
    2. I think the Council has lacked a full understandings of the mechanics of MD's soul. This is rather subjective, but none of the things they've developed have seemed to be pushing MD in a new or interesting way. From what I've seen, they take care of bills, pass out creatures, and generally keep the "order." That's not a way to create an atmosphere of interest.

    What would I want in their place? Again, a question for another time, but:
    1. A singular leader that people know and communicate with directly.
    2. Much much much more efficiency.
    3. A more creative direction.

    That's rather vague, more details will follow when the time is appropriate.

    I think the Council is doing some things well - managing MD's finances, not being corrupt, etc. But some of their duties are being left behind. I would like to work with them to fix it, but if they don't start talking, that can never happen.

    Before I start that whole process of somewhat peaceful, yet outspoken and direct, revolt, I'm proposing a meeting, the first of its kind.

    So, because I have no idea who the Council is and don't know what time zone, the Council gets to decide when and where we meet.

    My preferences:
    In game, perhaps at Awiiya's Way because then I wouldn't have to uproot myself.
    Preferably around 5:00 game time.

    The Council should show up prepared to answer our questions. We will not provide a list of questions beforehand - this will be the first time that the Council is forced to answer on the spot. If you need to delegate one person to go out of the Council, so be it. Do whatever you need to do to make this work. The general topic of the conversation will be the errors that we think the Council has made, what needs to be improved, how to improve it, and some sort of demystification.

    If you have further questions about the organizational details, my forum mail and in game mails are open and available.

    If the Council fails to choose a time and date within a week, consider me a rebel of sorts. I won't ask to compromise twice.

    It doesn't matter how creative you are, at the end of the day the BHC essentially uses the same system as the HC. Your goal: Attack people for their heads and then run away.

    1. We have a very small active community, at least to me and everyone else I speak to through the forum and yim, along with what I witness others say in chat.

    2. Not many members of the MD community are super active fighters. Yes, you have the small group of people who actively train all the time, but it's really not all that much. A lot of members seem to be mostly into roleplay and questing when one they like comes up. These guy's tend to set up exp loss defenses for people who enjoy training, and also train their own creatures from time to time, but I'd hardly call people like that people who are really into the whole mindless fighting thing. I'd call them go with the flow types, and people who wouldn't really be interested in sitting at the computer around the clock hunting and hiding.

    3. Like I wrote earlier, the BHC system is basically the same as the HC. You attack people for heads and run away. This is exactly how the game is played, although you do get to roleplay heads in the BHC. Now does it really seem like such a small community with an even smaller group of fighters would get a large turnout in a BHC event? No, it sounds like the event would get an extremely small turnout.

    Don't try to tell me I should have been creative. Putting the heads hill in a different spot wouldn't have made the event much more fun. Making it strictly in one small location wouldn't have made it much more fun. That last one would probably decrease the amount of fighters even more. Imagine how many mirror rits would be used up on me or lightsage if we all fought fairly close to each other. Fighters would either go broke from buying mirror stones or they'd just have to give up since they wouldn't really be able to take us most of the time, at least in the beginning. Let's also not forget that being stuck in a small area with skilldamage around and actively being used tends to be a turnoff for most.

    I believe it's fairly easy to see that unless the system was changed drastically on a regular basis, it's just going to get stale for most people. Maybe I'm wrong, but if people think I am then they should try to apply to be the new Boss Heads Master. Let's see how many people you guy's can bring to the table.

    Why didn't I suspend the contest before it started? There are no refunds in the BHC (I didn't make up the rule, and I also don't get any of the coins/items people give to enter), and I didn't feel it would be fair to the fighters who already signed up.

    Why not say "This BHC/side event won't start before 20 people sign up"? Do you realize how long that would take? Like we've seen time and time again, the majority aren't even interested in participating fully. So the people who are truly interested should wait until everyone else who isn't that interested shrugs and say's "What the hell, I may as well try to help this thing get going." That could be a waiting period of many months, and when it finally starts the players who might have been extremely interested in competing could very well have other things to do and won't have the time to compete anymore.

    I wasn't looking to screw players over in the BHC, so the chance of me suspending the competition and saying "Sorry, you just wasted a gold coin for nothing," wasn't likely to happen.

    With so little demand for the BHC it's probably best that it just get's removed from the game. It'll always end up coming down to about 3-6 active players (I'm feeling generous, otherwise I'd probably put it at 3-4)

    My punishment was deserved? I really don't see it that way. I'm the type who usually follows guidelines to a T. I was given guidelines, and I wanted to follow them for the most part. Mur considers this game his life's work, or so he say's on the forum, and I feel I should follow it the way he outlined for me. You can say "you should have improved on it and made it better," but I'd like to point you back to the top of my post where I outline how easy it is to see how boring the same type of system for a fighting event becomes over time, and I'd love to see someone step up and prove me wrong.

    My punishment came from me following guidelines I was given when I received my role, and possibly for the community not being interested in competing in a copy of the same system as the HC while now having to fight against the strongest players in the game. If more punishments would follow low turnouts/few people actively competing or something else that is bound to happen pretty much every single time, I have no doubt I would have lost a trust point for every next BHC, and possibly any side events in the future. There is no point if their just itching to rid me of my trust points.

    If you want sugar coating I suggest you visit a candy shop. I am very blunt when I speak or write to people, and I've exchanged so many messages with the council on a number of subjects that I will no longer speak "nicely" to them. It's like when you call up the customer service hotline for a product you recently bought and then you get some guy in India who has very little knowledge of the product, puts you on hold for a long period of time, and then all of a sudden after waiting for 45 minutes the call gets dropped, or he/she just hangs up. You then call back and eventually give them a piece of your mind because your fed up with them.

    Yrth, you walked away from kingship because you couldn't handle me. You also "threw the rattle out of the pram" (I'm guessing that means threw a temper tantrum) because I was given a medal for slaying you. I'll say the same to you, It's probably best you walked away, because you obviously didn't care about GG, right? I mean, if anyone walks away they automatically didn't care about their previous role, at least that seems to be the way you see things, or that was my interpretation of what you wrote.

    Let's also remember that I respected my power enough not to abuse it, while you on the other hand abused your power and lost a trust point. You could claim I abused my power by winning, but in actuality I never used any of my BHC abilities (I really only have the legislator to move people to my location or scatter them) to win that contest. I just walked into the TB and idled while everyone did their own thing, and even got a present from lightsage. I have a strong feeling the majority of people don't believe I actually abused my power to win.
