  1. Having worked as a mod on a game with a single-account rule, I can safely say it is almost impossible to enforce, for reasons others have mentioned above. IPs, cookies, etc.. are not reliable, and there is no sure way to identify multiple accounts of the same player, short of endless hours of work for mods comparing login data, analysing activity, friends, even dialects... But there are worse problems than that. Any time a hard, abitrary rule like this is set, it [i]Invites[/i] many people to make workarounds. You will be encouraging new, secretive, methods for behaving in ways that are not
  2. [quote name='dst' date='18 August 2009 - 03:36 AM' timestamp='1250591778' post='39766'] One thing about the over-power: it does have a downside. It's hard to get victories. You need to adjust proportions and that is not always easy. I might say that sometimes it's the hardest thing. [/quote] You aren't really asking for sympathy, are you? As non-spam: I'd like to see all veterans able to mess with the contest, though rewards to go only to the top-scoring new entrants.
  3. There are some better machine translators than google's, though not for all those languages. None of them is adequate for more than basic comprehension. They generate word salad in every language, which is annoying to read. And there are problems also with charsets. Please don't implement this feature. Note: I tested specifically in polish and spanish, but I've also worked professionally as a computational linguist so it's not a naiive opinion that they can't work.
  4. [quote name='awiiya' date='14 August 2009 - 12:53 PM' timestamp='1250279617' post='39393'] I'm going to go ahead and say no to Lightsage. If there is only one person who can tell me what his role was, then I don't think that qualifies as a broad impact. Stormrunner I am considering more. We'll see. I'll contact some people. Awi [/quote] Clearly Lightsage's role was as a bit of a troublemaker. He was a great fighter, and liked to test things, which is what got him banned. He was not, however, malicious. The last few months he really showed another side with Camilla. They had many adve
  5. I agree he should be punished. I do not agree this punishment fits the crime. I also think rules should be enforced with a least a small bit of consistency, which is not the case now.

[*]He (and his alts) got banned/warned due to cheating in this latest HC.

  7. [quote name='Kriskah Arcanu' date='04 July 2009 - 12:46 PM' timestamp='1246736768' post='36144'] why are we discussing this? Mur already took a decision. If he wanted our opinion in this matter he would have ask us. [/quote] Mur did ask us. He suggested this poll.
  8. Let's be clear on what we're voting for. Lightsage the char in no way benefitted from any action in the Heads Contest. Lightsage's player is accused of using alt accounts to benefit other chars. So the punishment in question is for not only the alts but also the main developed char of this player to be banned from the game. Mur has said the player however is free to play another account. I object to this poll because it too much must reflect the experiences people have had with a char who as part of his role is not always nice. I'll admit my own bias as I've a char very close to Lightsage, a

    Negative Exp

    I don't think anyone's complaining about the possibility of neg xp/vp, but lately there has been a spate of mp4s [i]Attacking[/i] other mp4s with regen rits out of purely malicious intent. Coupled with the new skill damage, and perhaps a seasonal lull, it's pretty dead out there lately. It's hard to believe you are seriously saying that it's a "filter" to discourage less adept players from staying in the game. That's not a feature. But that is the current problem. Maybe it oughtn't work the same way on lower mp levels.
  10. This is a great idea, but 04:00 server time isn't (not even here on the pacific). Couldn't you take a poll, against another time like 20: or 21: ?
  11. [quote name='dst' post='33372' date='Jun 12 2009, 02:53 PM']One question: as a fighter why stay at mp4? All the good things happen in mp5. So unless you are a RP-er you have no reason not to advance. And if you are a RP-er you don't care about crits and stats and fights.[/quote] It's a false dichotomy, dst. You roleplay whether you've ever used blue text to emote or not. And you're not the sort of player I'm worried about. You know what you're doing. I'm never going to invest into my chars what would make them exceptional, at any mp level. But I'm not interested in rp'ing a char who can
  12. I have to agree that it's too easy for just anyone to do damage this way, and they do, whether accidentally or maliciously. Especially for mp4 chars, it doesn't feel worth the time spent training when it's undone by so little effort. Relying on good sense or goodwill of players isn't enough. And I don't really believe there exists a choice between training and roleplaying. The overall effect here is not any incentive to spend more time socialising in sanctuaries. Trained fighters should be able to do all the damage they like, but this should be more difficult than it is now for most people.

    Happy B-Day!

    Happy Birthday, Light!
  14. I would hope, that this change was not at all intended to be a deterrent for mp4s near the cap from becoming mp5, but that is the effect currently, and for just the reasons Kamate and others have said. Being a convenient target is not a good goal.

    HACKERS

    I'm still confused about something. When jazira asked me to post for her in the forum regarding dojo violators, in a very jazira-like way, her flag was still philippines. Can someone explain how this works?

Reported also to Live Help, but I've not seen it any other time.
