    [b]The Council Speaks:[/b]

    Mp2 stage is allowed inside GG. If the player is found outside GG we will be banning the account as we have. We spoke with Mur on this matter and he advised us that if MP2 accounts are found outside GG they should be permantly locked. Any MP2's found outside GG will have this done to them.

    Your "Friends" MP2 will not be allowed to continue as it has been caught outside GG too many times. As for you posting on the topic that no one informed you, We pmed you saying you should not be outside GG. We banned you so that you might have a chance of being unbanned and returned to GG at a later date, but you just jumped to GG and ran off.

    Your friend is welcome to create another account, but MP2 status will not be given back to that account, or any account. Mur is clear enough on that point.

    Please post this on the thread you created.[/quote]

    Thank you Council for Clarifying. After deduction, my friend's last jump out of jail to celebrate Christmas would have been the biggest crime (even in the most jolly-est of seasons). I would also like to personally thank those who were involved.

    There are a lot of rules that never apply to anybody, yet exist. What's the point of cluttering the rules page with even more special rules, like MP2 rules, when it's impossible to become an MP2? For the few cases of MP2 appearing again, people do what they were told, and sometimes talk about different approaches and see if something should be done in a different way in the future.

    The point of filling up the page with even special rules is to prevent innocent victims and honest mistakes. You admit yourself there are a lot of rules that never apply to anybody but yet exists, if perhaps one day a person breaks one of these rules without being able to be fully aware of the rule, I would say that would lead to an unjust punishment if a punishment is decided.
    In regards to this point however, I specifically noted that rules should be set and not sought, this does not; in turn, mean that it is needed on the rules page, if a rule exists, then it should be somewhere relatively available rather than have the community ask for its existence.

    In my opinion, we should not neglect the small minority as they still are part of this community, especially when some of these special rules can be easily written down; it does seem like an accomplish-able task. With that said though, I will agree that not all rules can be noted. I can honestly say that if the rules page was layered out better and had a bit more information then perhaps some of the past incidents would not have occured (A striking example of this would be incident revolving King Yrith and Mighty Pirate). Without any form of access to the rule without asking, one of the largest faults right now that resides on the rules page is this:

    MP2's arent allowed, MP2 status wont be given back to the account, if you are lucky and want it Mur might move the account to MP3. What do you want? I had thought these points were clear, and the "mistake" is no such one, because it was meant to happen. I still dont see what you exactly want, and the above post doesnt "clear" anything up, if not makes it makes it much less clearer.

    I apologise, by Atrumist's end comments I thought he asked for the motive of our post rather than the outcome. We have messaged the council to restore my friend's account completely to its former status (which means to MP2) and to send it back to GG where it is supposedly meant to be (Or alternatively the GoE if they decide otherwise), we are currently awaiting their response. We both understand that this may in the be end impossible but we are still trying.

    [Below is my own personal thought/rant, take this as how you will]

    The inconsistencies between the rules that everyone has mentioned and Manu's own personal idea frightens me. On the one hand it is said by almost everyone that MP2s are only allowed in GG whilst on the other Manu claims that they are all to be locked. Not only that, but these two variations are also both not somewhere publically nor commonly available (although my sense of being public and common is through the rules page, announcements and through the search of the forums).
    I honestly feel like I am beginning to understand Firs little insight of what MD has become.
    In my honest opinion however, the rules should be set out rather than sought out, especially when they are simple enough to written with just a lines words or sentences. (This is of course not to say that some all rules should be set out)

  4. I would like to personally thank BFH for his entertaining Christmas events, some were unusual, most were unfair but all were fun. Thank you again BFH for giving us a Christmas to remember.

    I would also like to extend my gratitude to the MD community itself. Christmas is a time to be shared and enjoyed and without the community, there would have been nobody to cherish this special day with. Thank you everyone.

  5. [quote name='Grido' timestamp='1324951424' post='98725']If LHOs were not responding to enquiries, did neither you or the MP2 think to contact the person in charge of the LHOs? i.e. me? I do not recall mp2's being mentioned to me for a long long time.[/quote]

    Indeed Grido, she tells me that her first encounter with LHOs must have been at least a year or two ago, her next being much more recent; probably within in the last four or five months. Indeed we did not think of contacting you due to the nature the events. After each short period of silence, she was returned back outside GG which led us to think that the LHOs listened and made a mistake themselves.

    [quote name='Atrumist' timestamp='1324956128' post='98734']I can't understand what is your goal. Now when you and she know that mp2 are not supported and not allowed anymore (for long time actually), what do you want to be done to that account ? Are you trying to persuade people here that because of lack of information and the 'trouble' that account experienced , in some strange way you/she have to be somehow rewarded, or to be super added for the suffered problems? Be more clear ... what is your aim to prove.[/quote]
    [quote name='Deatznce0' timestamp='1324822458' post='98545']
    Now here's why we shout unfairness (I apologise for the repetition but it is to clarify for those that still do not understand what i'm emphasising);[list]
    [*]There are no rules regarding the limitations of MP2 and so by another rule, she's technically allowed to do as she pleases. [Albeit due to the unfortunate set of circumstances, she was at least led to believe there was not.]
    [*]Even If there is such a rule that MP2s are not allowed off GG, she could have done nothing as she was forcibly moved each time (twice off GG and twice back on).[/quote]
    We honestly have no motive but to rather clear up this unfortunate mistake and correct this injustice. We ask for no reward, I would like to clarify your further queries if you have any but I am unable to understand what is meant to be super added for suffered problems.

    Ok...I don't understand a thing: you say she was told that mp2s are not allowed ouside GG. Then you say that no PMs were received. Then you say her PMs to LHOs remained without answer.
    How was then she told that she's breaking the rules?

    [quote name='Chewett' timestamp='1324895112' post='98634']
    I myself have contacted your friend on more than one occasion, saying she is not allowed to be outside, yet numerous times i have seen her roaming around MB. Each time PM's i have sent have been completely ignored, read but not answered.

    dst, she did receive replies from LHOs but not from Chewett himself. When I mentioned on my previous post that she did not receive a PM, this was directed towards Chewett himself rather than to the LHOs as a whole as Chewett insisted that he sent multiple PMs which were read and ignored. The multiple warnings that Chewett sent himself were never received.

    Rather than to sound redundant, I shall requote myself bolding the bits which should answer your query:
    [quote name='Deatznce0' timestamp='1324915580' post='98668']
    Because the rule was never written down on an accessible place and when[b] she asked why she was outside of GG[/b] [b]nobody gave her an answer[/b], she became confused. None of your messages nor warnings were ever received [b]Chewett[/b], if they were, she assures me that she would have contacted you for trip back to GG but it did not.

  7. [quote name='Chewett' timestamp='1324914416' post='98661']
    You said yourself she used the forum, yet has no forum account? This is rather magical, How did she do so?

    As for the LHO's, any lho worth his salt should have known this.

    If she had used the forum, i would have posted telling her exactly, and since i have not EVER seen a mp2 post on the forum regarding what MP2 players are allowed to do, i can only work out you have remembered wrong.

    Rather magical? She has never posted on the forum herself? She generally used mine to scavenge information after you yourself pruned her forum account. (We've discussed multiple forum accounts and the reason you erased it, remember?)

    Because the rule was never written down on an accessible place and when she asked why she was outside of GG nobody gave her an answer, she became confused. None of your messages nor warnings were ever received Chewett, if they were, she assures me that she would have contacted you for trip back to GG but it did not.

    Why don't you end this drama, give that account mp3 status and unban her? So will see if there is an alt abuse after.

    I've mentioned this before but she enjoyed playing with illusions? She does have an MP3 alt herself but she treasures this character much more. Alt abuse has nothing to with this issue. There is no drama behind this but rather; as we see it, a mistake resulting in an innocent honest player banned.
    [quote name='BFH' timestamp='1324911695' post='98653']

    As I see things.

    She did not needed any connections.

    For such cases your friend could had used:[list]
    [*]Contacting an LHO
    [*]Contacting council.
    Note: There are emails and phones in our homepage, accessible to EVERYONE.

    BFH and ShadowSeeker, you both mentioned forums, LHOs and the council: Other than the council itself (as she did not see the need to bother them over a minor issue), she did use the LHOs and the forum. Her attempts were followed by a refusal of the LHOs teleporting her (whether it be to GG or the GoE) and later when asked about the rule regarding it, they would often not clarify. (she notes to me in particular that when she asked why she was teleported off GG the first time, she got NO ANSWERS which added to the confusion of whether the rule actually exists or not.)

  9. I have been told that there never were any PMs, the only message in her message box was by Kyphis and the reason for this was because she had befriended him while borrowing my account for a few days. Are you sure that this is the same MP2 Chewett? The messages were never received.

    Other than that, she has no power to enter back to GG once exiled. She lacks the connections for other people to send her back, she does not have enough AP to venture through MDA and she has no access to the main gates as she cannot walk down from the GoE. Adding up with this, the only few times that she was sent back into GG, she was also immediately removed and placed back into the GoE.

  10. [quote name='dst' timestamp='1324826617' post='98549']
    Am I the only one to know that mp2s are NOT allowed to main lands?

    Now, let's take them one by one:

    Yes, there is a rule. Mur forbid all mp2s to exit GG because of the way they were abused. And it's not jail time but direct ban.

    She was warned that mp2s are NOT allowed leave GG, If she cared so much for her own safety, she would have said something (I am sure there are ways she can express herself).

    The LHOs who said they have no idea about such rule should be decapitated (Greedo you should lose an ear too for not teaching those guys all the rules :P).

    Now, be honest: you are old enough to know that the mp2s have been banned. You were a GGG user and you know what happened when we discovered mp2s can fight any level. This is also the reason why mp2s are not allowed outside.

    And I said that there are others in the same situation (myself included). The best example are Sage and Windy (so you'll not say that I have an advantage because Mur knows both me and No one).

    So sorry for your friend but she has to decide: mp2 only in GG or mp3 roaming free with no restrictions.

    She decided to roam wherever was available for her, when she was removed from GG it confused us even more since she thought she was allowed out, I spoke out many times in MB asking people for rules but even i went confused. Nobody had answers. I may have been a GGG user at one point but that was much long ago and I was unfortunately mostly inactive. She on the other hand has never been. Thank you for your input and clarifications dst.
    [quote name='Muratus del Mur' timestamp='1324833151' post='98558']
    mp2 testing/experiment ended ages ago. ALL MP2 are to be locked on spot. not even jail , i mean account lock permanently. To allow a certain level of 'unexpected' this wasn't done by a mass db update but it to be done manually each time an mp2 is seen. Simple as that. nothing new.

    p.s. mp2 in gg, for those that have access over a bot account, thats something else, they should stay in gg, but wont get locked. From what i know there is just one such account so i bet its not the case.

    Then why is there no visible rule? I have asked many times but was left with nothing more than uncertainties. If an honest person with honest intentions can be punished by a rule which does not seemingly exist, then how is that even fair? Even so, (using the available rule) to be teleported out of the only place she was "[i]supposedly[/i]" allowed forcibly out of her will twice. Sorry Mur, if you can accept this kind of injustice then this realm has no place for me.

  11. dst, now that I've read the my post back, I suppose that it can be considered that I might have been shifting the blame to you, I apologise but I mentioned your name in particular because I was sure that you would have access to the teleportation spell logs. I am not blaming you nor anyone else, what I am noting is two things:

    First, there are NO RULES AVAILABLE based on why MP2s should not be allowed to roam freely, if there are no rules surrounding this then why on earth should my friend be punished?
    Second: The teleportations were done by an ANONYMOUS PERSON, neither my friend nor anyone else knows who teleported her on and off GG.

    Now here's why we shout unfairness (I apologise for the repetition but it is to clarify for those that still do not understand what i'm emphasising);[list]
    [*]There are no rules regarding the limitations of MP2 and so by another rule, she's technically allowed to do as she pleases.
    [*]Even If there is such a rule that MP2s are not allowed off GG, she could have done nothing as she was forcibly moved each time (twice off GG and twice back on).

    And as for your remaining queries or comments that I can clarify; dst:

    I've made clear on other separate posts that I live in a college, there are people who of course unfortunately share the computer with me and therefore the alt restriction applies. We have not engaged in any alt abuse and this has nothing to do with my own account so I don't think this is necessarily relevant.

    If it is tough luck how this has come to this then we're willing to fight out this injustice.

    EDIT: Chewett and Burns, surprisingly you two made me laugh!

  12. Funny how "randomly appearing at GoE" is actually the honest truth, my friend had to deal with waking up being teleported everywhere but it did happen. (Unfortunately it is unknown who did it, perhaps dst may have more of a clue?)

    We shall ask advice from the council first and if that fails, inquire Mur himself. I don't believe she has done anything wrong by just "existing" and nor do I think she should be banned or punished by the actions of another.

  13. I'm not sure if that was the issue but she did not want to move to MP3 rather she much enjoyed playing with illusions. The reason for her ban seems questionable based on the events she endured in my opinion. (That is if there even is such a rule that MP2s are unable to roam around the realm by which I have found none so far.)

  14. BFH, Grido, ShadowSeeker, Chewy and Fyrd, although this event may have been unfair (or at least through our perspective), this can honestly wait, due to a public portal from yesterday to the GoE, she is currently out of Jail and enjoying Christmas with everyone.

    EDIT: And she is now banned.

    Due the community's feedback I shall edit my first post leaving details. Thanks everyone.

    Also: I'd like to give a clap and a hug to those who made Christmas events this year! Thank you guys, you did great.

  15. Hello there everyone!

    Unfortunately, an issue has arose between someone with Jail powers and one of my friends, they do not access the forum so hence I will speak on behalf of them. However, following a topic started by pathos a while back, most of the community decided to hold off any problems and negativity until after the new year so I would like to ask the community whether they would like to preferably know about the issue now or perhaps save it till the new year?

    Thanks everyone.

    Also in conjunction: Merry Christmas to all!


    I'll leave this in dot points to make it more easily readable, this concerns my friend's MP2 account: Sylv Arculis[list]
    [*]My friend created an MP2 account a long time ago.
    [*]If I recall correctly she was one of the lucky ones to create one during the second phase meaning she was allowed to roam the main island (that is off GG)
    [*]After taking a long break, she started playing again 3 months ago.
    [*]Almost within a week of her playing, she was sent to GG a first time.
    [*]She was told that MP2s were not allowed to leave GG (although she has never been)
    [*]I checked on the rules and the forums and asked a few LHOs for her but had no luck finding out if this was true nor why.
    [*]After some time, she logged in one day and she was in the GoE. (Randomly teleported)
    [*]She was later sent to GG a second time. (Randomly teleported)
    [*]This time she asked the LHOs but the answers were the same.
    [*]Later (about a month ago), after experimenting with some items she woke up finding herself in the GoE again.
    [*]A Christmas event portal to Necro was opened and she decided to use it.
    [*]She walked back from Necro but became was stuck in the paper cabin.
    [*]She asked a few LHOs to see if they could teleport her either back to the GoE or GG (As she was confused as to where she was allowed to go)
    [*]She later woke up in Jail with the reason: MP2 outside of GG.
    [*]Still wanting to join the Christmas events she took a public portal to the GoE.
    [*]Today she woke up banned:

    You have been banned from this game. Message contact@magicduel.com for complains, make sure to include a very good reason to your actions.

    REASON: mp2 outside GG.
    I find this completely unfair against her as she was teleported randomly four times out of her will and she was sent to jail and banned because of it. The other thing I found unusual is that there is no rule listed anywhere about MP2s. (I've checked the rules page, the forum and even the announcements and the best that I've learned is that they're a disabled Mind Power but nothing else.)

    Although enough about my own personal spiel, what do you think MD community?

    Are people ignoring the second sentence? That they're so friendly they won't even fight? lol - why're you trying to give ability suggestions? :P
    Perhaps it should be like an egg? You cannot place them in a ritual because they'll refuse to fight! (Or they may weaken creatures through their friendliness, make them lose their guard)

  17. [quote name='Chewett' timestamp='1320072501' post='95020']

    When you say, refused to restrict, Did he even comment on it? As i remembered i thought that there was some small amount of proof, and people guessing they were alts, with no altchecks done or Mur looking into the matter.

    Which is VERY different from someone using alts that are known and have been confirmed to be the same player. Assumptions dont get you anywhere, proof is always needed with such accusations.

    Actually we directly asked him! Vasil, Quas and Kindred were in that bracket and we demanded a check. I didn't personally receive the reply but Vasil was told by Mur that Alts could be used in the head contest, we've brought a little note to the council but it is still pending.

    And moving back on topic now: I am sure this could be considered harassment in an unusual way haha.

  18. [quote name='Chewett' timestamp='1319972256' post='94892']

    So i can use my 50+ alts to attack you repeatedly to break you and make you lose stats?

    In essence, yes. Considering how Mur refused to restrict alts in the last head contest for MP3s (as shown by PANDAY and his alt; Legend Knight), I honestly don't see why not. (I'm not encouraging using alts in this fashion but it would nonetheless be entertaining)

    I'd love to join but unfortunately I don't meet the criteria...

    And maybe try fighting against Eon with a purpose... (I've yet to see that mentioned! I mean it was implemented for a reason...)

  19. Quoting from the restrictions page...

    [quote='Restrictions Page']
    Repeated harrassment without reason of other players will not be tolerated. If you have a reason for that, that reason should be discussed with a moderator and if that moderator is unable to solve the issue then put up for voting on the forum. By harrasment we understand constant verbal abuse and moking. Repeated attacks or other ways are not considered punishable harrasment but can be brought up for judging if you think they should.

    [quote name='Firsanthalas' timestamp='1319802620' post='94756']
    ... Would it make it easier on you if I called it ‘socially undesirable behaviour’? I mean, cybersex is so obviously socially undesirable behaviour, but hounding people, calling them names, spreading lies about them, slagging them off as foolish or weak, well that is totally different right? I mean that is obviously acceptable behaviour. Chasing someone around and attacking them over and over again, for hours at a time even though they have asked you not to do so, that is ok too. I mean, it’s obvious that you are upsetting them, but hey, you aint breaking any rules right? ...

    Other than constantly attacking someone over and over, everything else listed CAN be declared as some sort of harassment (even being a jerk for that matter) and therefore a rule is broken.
    Now, for the sake of it, be BLUNT. If you feel harassed, what's the harm in messaging the person with a nice; "Hey! Quit harassing me" note? Sure, it may not work but then you can at least report it to the higher ups as an actual harassment.

    And is MD shameful? No, just quiet and very undisclosed.

  20. Considering how this thread is derailing into an anti-Eon/Wishpoint spell problem thread lets go back on topic shall we?

    I like the idea but it might take away some privileges by older players or those with special roles, my suggestion would be to perhaps have two different types of teleport spells? One (which is more public) which can be declined (at a cost - and with a time limit before they are either taken to that location?) and one (for those with more administrative roles) which forces a player into a location regardless.

    Unfortunately, I'm unconvinced that it should be used to teleport people out of locations during HC, it is meant to be unfair (although the "unfair" section of the HC has never really been defined) and I certainly do not think that spells are not be used for convenience. Spells should be allowed to be freely casted (with the exception of some that are given specific purposes; such as jail/silencing) but this is all just my own personal opinion.

  21. As agreed with almost everyone above; for the important events (such as awarding medals and such) perhaps a date should be specified (Maybe not a reoccuring date or anything but at least a few weeks of notice), otherwise (such as the bulk item giveaways that occurred way way waaay back) I'm happy for them to be unannounced.

    With that being said; I think Firs argument is coincidental to everyone in this realm.
