  1. Oh my Gosh! You do wear Whore Red Lipstick! :P

  2. [quote name='dst' post='32579' date='Jun 2 2009, 07:30 PM']Actually the dojo is as a romanian saying says () with one foot in the grave meaning it will be gone pretty soon if someone doesn't start working for it. And to be honest I am sooo glad it will be gone. Really glad.[/quote] Actually, the Dojo is more likely a permanent fixture. In his announcement, Mur more or less acknowledged this just as he acknowledged the training ground at Golden Globe Gazebo. It has been my observation that since late February or early March, the Dojo has been one of the mostly heavily used locations in t
  3. are those wedding bells i hear off in the distance?

  4. I Sissypoo! I see you!

  5. [quote name='tinylips' post='30433' date='May 6 2009, 12:46 PM']Greetings, I am willing to help in the Dojo in any position required. I am on quite a bit here of late and willing to learn. Contact me if interested. Thank you[/quote] I will look for you in game. I try to go idle in accessible locations so people can PM me.
  6. Have a chocolate muffin!

  7. [quote]From the [i]Dao De Jin (Tao Te Chig)[/i] Chapter 31, Goddard's first translation. Even successful arms, among all implements, are unblessed. All men come to detest them. Therefore the one who follows Dao does not rely on them. Arms are of all tools unblessed, they are not the implements of a wise man. Only as a last resort does he use them. In propitious affairs the place of honor is the left, but in unpropitious affairs we honor the right. Peace and quietude are esteemed by the wise man, and even when victorious he does not rejoice, because rejoicing over a victory is the same a
  8. On this day I have promoted Sagewoman and Kragel to Honored Guide of the Dojo. Gremlin has been made Dojo Staff. Titles and or descriptions have been given or updated everyone Dojo Staff or higher.
  9. Yes, Raven. Ive found you to be level headed and trustworthy. I voted for you.
  10. [b]Staff training[/b] will be held at least twice a month. Each training will be held at at least two different times to enable more people to attend. Attendance of at least one session a month is [b]mandatory[/b]. If you cannot attend send a PM to Calyx or Jazira, or post here. Failure to attend one meeting a month will result in being reduced in rank or dropped from the dojo staff. These will be general meetings to to make sure we are handling things in a uniform manner, to discuss problems and offenders. In addition there will be sessions covering the principles which guided the creation
  11. I truly appreciate all the ideas and suggestions coming forward. The technical issues of locking people out or simply preventing them from attacking are not so bad due to a change Mur has in mind that I am not permitted to speak of. I hope it is as beneficial as we thing it will be. Neither Mur's idea nor banning can be done so long as a dojo is in the middle of traffic as all three locations presently are. The dojo will be moved to a location with only one entrance, so it will not be in the path of traffic. This makes any number of things possible. Those of you who have been around for a
  12. [quote name='cryxus' post='27091' date='Mar 13 2009, 09:53 PM']banning people for breaking dojo rules is simply too excessive...[/quote] Please note, this is not a ban from the game, but a ban only from the dedicated Dojo location we will soon have. I asked for bans of 3 hr, 6 hr, 12 hr, 1 day, 3 days. I have asked for the spell to expel the person from the Dojo and keep them out for a period. Most bans will be brief. What Mur will do, I do not know. What is excessive are players that make repeated attacks in front of staff, are abusive to the staff, and go "nyah, nyah, you can't touch me."
