    Mighty Pirate got a reaction from Esmaralda in Wp For Days   
    quite a late reply on the subject: What about WPs for completing "Achievements and Trophys" rather than just for Active days? (sorry if this was posted before, I confess that I did not read all 100+ posts.) I can imagine a combination: You get a new WP after a certain number of days and one more complete achievement or trophy.

    Mighty Pirate reacted to Muratus del Mur in How can actual spells have "limited cast", its outrageous   
    Its time for a concept clarification. I tried to make md in a very original but also personal view on subjects such as game playe but also the concept of "magic".
    There are some traps i fell in. Because it requires a bit more "insanity" than i was prepared to have back 6 years ago to say things as they are, certain things I made them as they were "expected".

    You might think md is original as it is, but from my point of view, things like "limited number of casts" on a spell, the word "spell" itself...scratch my ears and made me think they are very ..commercial.

    I tried over time to improve things by making them more natural to how I wanted them to be, and some of the steps i did in that direction are relevant. This is one of those steps. It does not involve a tehnical change, because none is required, but it is about a clarification of concept. This clarification is so important for me that I made an announcement about it and shift other things in md tehnical or cenceptual, to fit it. I wanted to make it the milestone that will mark the end of stage X and beginning of stage XI...but i am sure you don't see it as important as I do yet so I will let the stage11 celebrate an other, more dramatic and obvious change/feature.


    Now, what is this all about.

    Spells are nothing more than "pre-compiled" memories, complex thoughts..too complex to remember as they are. Sometimes you can cast them without words, achieving the same result through your actions, sometimes you can use words to "cast" spells by bringing their memory fresh into your mind. The words offer a guide, a focus to set your mind in a defined direction.

    In games, spells became more like ..idk.. pills that you take or buttons that you press and things happen, totaly away from their actual meaning and concept. I am trying to bring this concept more to its reality with certain things like "heat" cost, keeping spells as part of the chat talk and not "buttons to press" and such things. Sadly is not enough, for my standards at least.

    Thats why i write this here and will follow this concept for the future in a more obvious way. SPELLS ARE THOUGHTS, not buttons, not words you read an do things you cant do. The words are aids to do the things you can already do.

    Currently in MD it is a huge gap between the spelldocs, that are the closest thing to spell descriptions you will probably ever find, and the "usable" spells. I am working on that part, and i am aware of this issue. At some point inner magic will unite with outer magic concepts in md, and all the development so far supports that sort of update. As i see it, it will probably happen in stage11..and if i get angry enough it will happen in one night of work because things are increasingly clearer for me as how they should go (development wise). Rendril almost finished a major feature that will also be used to reintegrate the spelldocs, so everything is comming in place nicely.

    I find it outrageous how spells can have "limited number of casts". How can that be? You run out of words? wtf is this bulshit, excuse my language.
    Regardless how angry I am on the general preconceptions that make people think a certain way, or by the need to balance powers that made me add limited number of "casts" to a unlimited thing, i need to move on and go back to what I consider accurate and real. For that I will shift MD further more on the originality path.

    There is one case when spells have indeed limited "casts"..it is when they are not yours and you just remember that thought, copied from someone else. In reality, thoughts do not "re-purify" themselves..sadly. But in RL we experience an entropic universe. In md the world is balanced, or slightly inclined towards syntropy, so what I will say next _makes perfect sense_.

    " A spell has limited uses because a memory used in such way gets slightly tainted by current thoughts and it needs time to recover its purity. Therefore, spell casts are limited, but if you master the spell (as opposed to temporary spells), their "casts" will recharge periodically."
    (This is a quote from the description added to the spell index page)


    Note: Normally in an entropic universe, any thought you repeat (i hate the word spell), becomes altered and gets further away from its original purity..but becomes also stronger.

    Following this sudden change of heart that makes me improve concepts and alter feature just to follow those concepts, I will do different changes to the spell system. Nothing will be drastic, no functionality will be broken. What is now implemented is fine..just some of the words are too standard and i hate it.

    For example, part of this concept will be a new sort of temporary spells..thoughts that you consume till they are gone then you forget how to recall them. Words alone can only help someone recreate thoghts in their mind with their own "vocabulary" of feelings...but spells sometimes are about feelings that you never experienced and such thoughts can not be reproduced without experience..but can be copied in the presence of someone that masters them.


    Temporary spells will also change the way MD is played..mainly because now a lot more people will be able to have spells. The spells wont be abusable because they wont be rechargeable! There is a huge range of possibilities that opened up today but it is all based on the previous years of development.
    [b]
    In the end I want to remind you all one thing.


    There is no magic..things might look as magic seen from one side but its knowledge seen from the other side. There is no magic for the magician.

    A "Next creature" button would be nice. It would save half of the clicking if you want to look at all your creatures in detail.

    Mighty Pirate reacted to Metal Bunny in Lifeline Vs Decision In The Drach Lair Incident   
    You want to know how making a fight club in MB and putting up a poster in MB is different from a fight club in the drachorn cave?
    It's because of all the other facts concerning the GG drachorn cave.
    How is this not clear?

    You say that we didn't ask either before doing anything at all inside MB.
    I give to you now, that it was obvious that not only the drachorn cave was closed because of the possible abuse, but that it was actually [i]closed[/i].

    Marind Bell, especially the places where Burns was active, is not only a completely [i]open and public[/i] place, but also a place for newbies and a place for [i]learning[/i].
    By your logic, you should also have issue with all neutral institutions as well, as you seem to make no distinction about intent and proper usage of any action on any territory, regardless of it's designation.
    By your logic, the dojo should be removed as well, because no one at the dojo ever asked you to open it in the first place, by your logic, not only burns' recruitment poster, but also any and every kind of quest script on any kind of script item should be cleansed if they do not have your permission as well, because it furthers the desires and cause of individual players, much like a recruitment poster would further the desires and cause of an alliance.
    Not only that, according to your logic, you would have every person ask your permission, before they are allowed to try and get more adepts in MB.

    There is a reason why we felt insulted by your intrusion into the GG drachorn cave, and there is a reason why there is no real inherent intrusion in such actions in MB lands.

    As I stated earlier, there are many reasons why you should not have gone into the GG drachorn cave; it was closed, explicitly and implicitly, simply because of the fact of being there would allow for an enormous abuse.
    The reason why we did not ask for your permission for our actions in MB, is because it was done in open territory, which has an extra special designated characteristic of teaching and helping newbies.

    By your logic, we would have felt insulted if you set up a fight club in [i]public[/i] golemus lands. We would not have, though we would have kindly asked you to leave it, much like you did with Burns' recruitment poster and fight club.

    You fail to make important distinctions.

    @Mur: So then you agree that what you said about the cave was in a forum post and not an ingame announcement? If you want to call me ignorant for not reading 30,000+ forum messages be my guest. But it's not like I missed an announcement or a personal message from you saying that the cave was restricted. And I don't expect you to care, however I do expect the use of practical reasoning skills. Not something like you dont like me or Manda for some reason or another and that is where you seen the opportunity to classify some "just cause."

    first of all this is no joke i am dead serious!
    and while speaking of death i will put my life on the line for this in order to avoid this trial being fake, postponed, stagnated, not taken serious, or whatever else like it was the case in the fenrir vs dst trial for example. just for the record the trial just stagnated and the judgement was never carried out while fenrir still played. then after several months fenrir quit the game and a few days later the judgement was spoken and of course against fenrir who had left by that time. so in order to avoid any fake trial and show my huge dissatisfaction with the last incident i will go all out on this one and make this about life and death for me. i will show all my determination in this trial and go down fighting for what i not only as player but also as king of a mainland believe is fair justice. if i loose this trial i shall be openly executed (execution followed by perm ban for my main account and other accounts i have) and will pass the crown of marind bell and kingship title with all the kingship items to one of the council members of marind bell who i deem worthy of being the next king/queen.

    little info beforehand: i trusted a former rpc who wasnot stoned/demoted/kicked or anything. RJ ensured me he is allowed to invite as many people inside the drach lair as he wants so i believed him because he was still the master of the lair and it never says in the rules or announcements that the area is offlimits plus no more drachs can be recruited.

    so now lets get this started:
    i hereby want to go to court against how mur and the "royal" court passed down judgement and handled the drachorn lair incident. especially how innocent players like masterb who didnt even know he would end up in drach lair got punished. he left the lair seconds after he got teleported in so no matter how u look at it he is perfectly innocent!
    i believe that the recent drachorn lair incident was handled most unfair and unjust. i will begin by posting all the announcements involving the drachorn lair:
    [i]
    [2009-09-01 13:06:58 - Alpha 9]
    [b].SmartAlekRJ. steps down from RPC list on his own request. Part of his rpc abilites will be withdrawn together with his status, future of Drachorns is still to be decided.[/b] (For the record, the stated reason for him requesting the demotion is the recent situation with .Raven. where he considered that .Akasha. kept the issue public instead of solving it closed curtains between rpcs only.) [/i]

    RJ steps down on his own will and isnt stoned/demoted/kicked or anything. the players in the recent drach lair incident had no reason to mistrust him. he was a former rpc, still had access to the drach lair and is still the master of the cave (only he got access not even the golemus king can enter). RJ himself invited all of us into the drach lair so we had good reason to trust in his word and believe him.
    ("Part of his [b]rpc abilites[/b] will be withdrawn together with his [b]status[/b]" its a little unclear but status with a clear mention of rpc before can in my opinion only mean rpc status things get removed but not his role as master of the drach cave)


    [i][2010-03-13 01:57:27 - Alpha 9]
    [b]Drachorn Cave closed for undefined time.[/b] It might get opend later or integrated somehow with a quest but for now it stays closed. (@Smartalekrj, drachs were supposed to be used as rewards for smart quests , not for who pays more.)[/i]

    it merely says it is closed with RJ still having access to it. it NEVER says anywhere that the location is offlimits or illegal to enter. since i know i will have to be real clear on this: open is the opposite of closed. so closed means that u cant open it. and indeed yes nobody can open it but RJ can walk inside (he has access) and several people can teleport others inside. it got closed when RJ lost his ability to open it for others. so closed refers only to nobody being able to open the lair and not that the location is offlimits or forbidden to enter.


    [i][2009-04-18 20:36:34 - Alpha 8]
    Drachorn Eggs sacrifice day..not for Easter Eggs
    Because of excessive amounts of drachorns when usual reward is 1 maximum 2, several measures have been taken against following players: Caster masc (aka tankfans) killed 7 drachorns eggs (all), .MRD. killed 10 drachorns eggs (all) , PTB killed 5 drachorns eggs (all), .Grido. killed 11 drachorn eggs. A few players were left with over 5 drachorns because of their role and because those drachorns are expected to be used as rewards for other players. [b].SmartalekRJ., the drachorn master,[/b] lost his ability to give access to the Drachorns Lair. [b]Access to the Lair was removed from all characters except .SmaralekRJ.[/b] . Access to the Lair and recruiting of just one, was a matter of trust, but it seems some considered it as a great opportunity to get too many rare creatures. Distribution of drachorns in the realm will be increased later when they will become again very rare (more than now). Those penalised should be happy that the penalisation was not higher. [/i]

    now here 33 drachorns were illegally purchased and the only punishment they got was that their illegal drachorns were sacrificed. RJ stayed drachorn master and still kept his access to the lair = he is the master of the cave, he owns it.
    please compare to the recent case: nobody was able to recruit a single drachorn in the cave so no real harm was done and everything else like unjustified access ect was exactly the same as the situation before but never even mentioned back then. but now players got high punishment unlike the ones from the previous incident who completely abused the situation and recruited up to 11 drachorns per person illegally and got away with no punishment at all (expect the illegal drachs being sacrificed)


    and finally in the rules and restrictions it never says anything about locations being offlimit forbidden not even anything slighty close to that. but it does say the following:

    [b]"You are free to do anything in the game that is tehnicaly allowed. If you consider that you discovered some sort of exploit or a bug, report it to a moderator. "[/b]

    that is official game rule and it tells me of no restriction but even the contrary that i can do pretty much whatever i want.

    the forum has 67,072 posts and mur has 1,355 posts. its not realistic for any person to read every single one and memorize it perfectly so even if somewhere on the forum it was explicitly said that the drach cave is forbidden to be entered or offlimits then it matters little because players simply dont see it, never did, or cant remember. actually i believe i checked all forum and here is the only thing i could find about drach cave from mur: "drach cave is closed explicitly, regardless if you have access to it or not." again it says CLOSED not forbidden to enter, offlimits, ect. but i wont explain the meaning of the word closed and its implication again.


    so to summarize this whole thing: heavy punishment was delivered to people who had no chance at all of knowing better. on top of that did the only player able to enter the cave and master of the drach lair personally invite them all. he is a trustworthy former rpc.
    i believe the punishment is out of place because players involved simply didnt know it was against the rules and in fact NOWHERE in MD does it ever mention that it is against the rules.


    from the announcements after the punishment: "Lifeline Kingship penalty
    An official character, especially a king, commits a big crime if he sets such a negative example of ignorance towards announcements and rules. Cave was closed, officially, and announced, long ago. "
    i am sorry but neither in the announcements nor in the rules does it say its a crime, offlimits, forbidden to enter, ect as i just prooved above. [b]ACTUALLY IT EVEN SAYS THE CONTRARY IN THE RULES. "YOU ARE FREE TO DO ANYTHING IN THE GAME THAT IS TEHNICALY ALLOWED".[/b] (just a short remark before this is held against me because of possible abuse or whatever: i have the chase spell since almost 2 years i could have chased into the drach lair and recruit drachs several times, i could have even went to angien shrine before it was open. but i never did because it made sense to me that u can recruit crits there that arent supposed to be bought easly.) and once again only the word CLOSED is used even in the forum post from mur. heck every damn shop tells me its closed after the workingshift is over but there are still people inside shopping who get to pay and purchase everything.

    PLUS: i have another very good reason and PROOF why this punishment and whole incident has nothing to do with breaking rules, announcements, written laws or even offending anything that was ever mentioned to me or other people. i will not post that openly on forums but once i know who to contact with this i will send it to that/those person/s. i will ask if i am allowed to post that proof here because then the ultimate proof will be served.
    what this case is about is a "law" that probably even the MDStaff (in case that staff even exists) never heard before.

    SO to finally wrap this up:
    if the trial goes in my favor i request that the punishment for all players who i teleported including myself to be undone and no further bad consequences to follow for us. since mur explained to me that prison time is impossible for a king i am willing to keep the kingship penality point which should serve as the punishment that would have been justified - a warning for something i didnt know was against the rules and something that was never anywhere written/declared as crime/offense.
    ALSO very important: Seigheart never entered the drach cave and i didnt teleport him! but if i understand the announcement correct he was pardoned anyway. and i cant speak for smartalekrj i believed him when he told me he is allowed to invite as many people inside as he wants. i dont know if he lied or not but RJ if u didnt know it was against the rules please speak up here and explain ur situation.

    if this trial is decided against me i will go down fighting for what i believe is right and just. these will then be my last moments as the first king of marind bell and seeker of knowledge lifeline. may my death hopefully at least accomplish that laws/rules get publically and officially posted so that they are well know and nobody else suffers my fate.

    I have but one extra notion to enter into this topic, I'm still thinking about the rest.

    My notion is that you, Lifeline, are a king.
    As a king, you can be expected to be aware of the current state of affairs, as well as being an experience player, into any random category of MD, though not necessarily in an expert manner.
    It's not a necessity, but it is to be expected. Why? Because otherwise these kinds of affairs and problems will come your way.

    You as king should've known that RJ had indeed abused the right to distribute the drachorn eggs. That is why it was closed, implicitly it means that RJ is not the real trusted player he once was.
    You as king should've known that RJ doesn't play on a daily or regular basis and as such, could've, much like you, not be in complete awareness of the current state of affairs.
    You as king should've realized that the drachorn cave is in GG lands, that the authority of the king supercedes that of RJ as the already 'demoted' drach master, as well as come to the realization that by simply [i]being inside of the drachorn cave you still re-open the possibility of the same abuse that got some of RJ's powers removed'.[/i]
    Not only that, you completely ignored the 'Manda incident'.

    You as king, should've taken these things into account and realized that a new GGG could've been in a much better place, than in a place [i]which was closed down, simply because of being there, opens up the ability to abuse[/i].
    The aforementioned facts should have made you doubt the worth and legality of the drachorn cave as a new training place.

    As a king, no, as an experienced player, you should've contacted either the staff beforehand, or Yrthilian.
    We may not have treaties set up between MB and GG, but I assure you, it looks insulting.

    You are king, not a newbie.

    The only part where you actually behaved as a king, and I commend you for that, is that you lay the blame upon yourself and wish to absolve others, as you believe it was beyond their control and they are not implicitly involved in the crime.

    [i]"An other condamnable act is that a King of a land cares to develop something in an other land, ignoring borders, and not trying to bring the activiy to his land."[/i]
    Since it wasn't mentioned in this thread, I take it this is not being contested?

    [quote name='Lifeline' timestamp='1290478779' post='72837']
    It merely says it is closed with RJ still having access to it. it NEVER says anywhere that the location is offlimits or illegal to enter. since i know i will have to be real clear on this: open is the opposite of closed.
    [/quote]
    The word closed often implies off limits. In this case the implication is very clear and anybody that is around long enough knows that Mur isn't the kind of person who is going to triple check his statements for being juridically perfect. But let us take your second quote: [i]"drach cave is closed explicitly, regardless if you have access to it or not."[/i] ie, the cave is "closed" even if it is mechanically "open". So either Mur was trying to contradict himself or he used "closed" to imply "off limits".

    [quote]PLUS: i have another very good reason and PROOF why this punishment and whole incident has nothing to do with breaking rules, announcements, written laws or even offending anything that was ever mentioned to me or other people. i will not post that openly on forums but once i know who to contact with this i will send it to that/those person/s. i will ask if i am allowed to post that proof here because then the ultimate proof will be served.[/quote]
    So it was impossible for you to contact either Mur or Chewett discretely? I know Chewett is not in charge of the game, but he is in charge of the forum so he should be able to help you. You couldn't wait even for a single day? Instead you post that you have ultimate proof, leading to another ten pages of speculation on whether or not you have it.

    I'm quite certain it isn't allowed. Any online community has a standard 'no slander, sexual harassment, denial of holocaust...' policy because those things are not legal in the country where the server exists and legal blah blah... it's also common sense.

    1)First of all these things happened cos MP5 players wants to train without being attacked and getting a loss.
    2)That was not posible in an open area as they will be attacked.
    3)So they chose to go balcony, even that area will discovered and attacked
    4)Then they left with only one choise and that is Cave.

    I would guess not, but I, for one, will not go on war with [u]a country[/u] because of the actions of [u]one person[/u] who happens to be its leader. I'd refrain from mixing personal issues with a king over country issues. Unless, of course, the action was done specifically as the King of the Land, representing the Land's intent. If it is an MB training ground made by the King of MB on Golemus soil, it's begging for war. Otherwise, I'd finish the issues on the appropriate scale, unless we really miss repeating convos like the ol dear GG-LR one we had.
    [/quote]

    The issue here is not just [u]one person[/u] taking the actions. But in regards to your comments regards one person and it beeing the leader. In this case the king. The kings actions always represent the intencions of the land. The is the whole point of a king. The represent the land as a whole so the action of the ONE person represents the actions of the land they represent. So in essence the action of the king in this case does represent the land. Now i am [b][u]NOT[/u][/b] saying a war will happen but i will not stand by regards actions like this.

    So in light of all the current details and whit the plans that was made and i am to believe this was a work in progress for some time. I nor the leadership of Golemus was informed of this intent, I have to take it as an agressive action from thoes people towards Golemus. No diplomatic approach was made to have this training ground in Golemus and of all places a RESTRICTED location. I for one do not intend to sit back and let this one slide.

    The people involved knew their action could bring about a big responce of some kind be it Mur or be it the land responding to what can really be concidered an invasion in a way of Golemus. yes i know that is a strong word but i cannot think of a better one. I am not happy that this situation has happened and yes it does create a very difficult situation. I find i have to look at the sort of responce that can be given as attacking people has no meaning and wars have no meening in game so what can be done?

    For now i am putting this forward. No Marind Bell player is allowed into Golemus and will be attacked on site. This is is responce to the Marind Bell leader/king setting up a training ground in Golemus without asking. The other people not citizens of Marind Bell are also not allowed to be in Golemus and will also be attacked on site. (I know this is not really much and difficult to enforce but it is a responce i can give and action with the helo of the land leaders)

    Myself and the leaders will have to talk some more regards any other actions that need be taken. But yes i am not pleased about what has been done and i do not intend to let this one go.

    OK, without getting into a debate on training grounds etc.

    People sought entry into a place that is supposed to be private, off-limits infact (for a very good reason).
    People (including a king, who should know better imo) tried to use this private area for a private club.
    The king and leaders of the land were not consulted and it seems this was done with a view to keep them in the dark.

    I think that this is a classic example of people abusing their privileges and taking liberties with things that they have no business with.

    I am going to point something out. A long time ago people in Loreroot suggested using Pathkeeper for conducting training. This were people of Loreroot. I told them no, as its not simply a location that you can hide away to conduct secret training. Its supposed to have a meaning and a purpose.
    I actually believe that MD should have more locations that are restricted and that each land should have an area that is private. However, when you see people doing things like this, you can see why there is a reluctance for Mur to allow it. It really bugs me at the way it always seems to be a minority of people that ruin things for everyone else. Its even worse when they are people that should really know better imo.

    Each land in MD is supposed to be sovereign territory. It really annoys me to see that people think its perfectly acceptable to do something like this. It annoys me even more to think that a king would not merely allow it, but seem to push it along.

    If I was in Yrth's position I'd most likely be on the warpath about this. It really is incredible.
    To those that seem to think its fine I simply have this to say. If it was your land that was being treated in this manner, if some supposedly private place in Necrovion, Loreroot or Marind's Bell was being used by people from outside, would you think it was fine?

    Public place where everyone can get access to. No rules on how players should attack. If you wish to set a tree, do it without screaming if someone breaks your rit.
    [/quote]

    Just my two cents here and I have to say that I agree with Dst on this one 100%.

    Personally, I see no need for a new GGG of any sorts. I quit fiighting for many months, leaving me behind in terms of strength and upgraded creatures to use to train properly. I didn't try to form a new training ground. I was out there looking, I realised some people had such defences I could get wins/victories out of them, and I did. In less than a month I managed, after being absent from training for months!, to both get enough wins to max my angiens (when they are in lvl 3, do the math how many wins they need to get maxed) and other creatures, I was finally safe from reaching skill damage. And I did it the right way. I was looking around for targets, I even still had trees on my defences for others to get wins from me and I did not complain about it.

    Now, if some people wish to make a new training ground, do it at Willow's. When fighting three trees you don't get much xp, you may also get a victory counted and offer a win with your defence to those who help you. Fight and defend, simple. Why do you desperately need a new 'GGG'?

    And come on... the Drachorn's lair? You people should get punished for even [b]entering[/b] this location. Coming from you, RJ, I am really disappointed, I expected more from a Veteran.

    Mighty Pirate reacted to Ravenstrider in Seigheart Vs Dst   
    @Chwett: Braking training groups isn't the issue. The way she talks is, insulting, etc.


    Yes, Fenrir had a similar case against dst, but I believe that Seigheart (as a character, even if he is Fenrir's alt) never did anything to provoke this, except receiving some items from Fenrir (if he was an alt, this would be alt abuse, but I clearly remember at least 3-4 cases with much greater item abuse with alts, and I don't think any of them were punished)...


    So it comes to this: It's personal (RL personal), which means that it has no place in MD...


    I've witnessed more than one occasion of dst insulting Seigheart, ruining his RP, calling him Fenrir without showing proof,etc. I will be willing to testify.



    P.S. There is a possibility that Seigheart actually talked to Fenrir and told him that dst is bugging him and thus heard the std name... Or maybe from other people/ on other occasion... This doesn't prove anything.





    I'm sick and tired of people harassing new players just because they can... Or because they are delusional. And you wonder why people don't stay in MD?

    This is also a small proof that seigheart is fenrir.

    You know what my opinion is about GGG so I'll let you draw the conclusions.

    Mighty Pirate got a reaction from Jubaris in Wp For Days   
    quite a late reply on the subject: What about WPs for completing "Achievements and Trophys" rather than just for Active days? (sorry if this was posted before, I confess that I did not read all 100+ posts.) I can imagine a combination: You get a new WP after a certain number of days and one more complete achievement or trophy.

    Mighty Pirate reacted to Metal Bunny in Petition Against February   
    Really, the only sensible thing February could have done by now, is to realize that his VE is disproportionally high, even compared to some mp5. If he wants to keep this 'power', shortlived indeed it may be, at the mp3 level then I suggest he stops capping newbies.

    If I were him, and I saw this petition, the only sensible path that I would see would be to voluntarily go to mp4.
    Not only does this avoid going to mp5 directly, thereby missing many opportunities, but it would also be a show of goodwill, unlike that grotesque display of censored ego stroking, as was seen in the mp3 vs mp5 topic.

    I can only wonder why he still hasn't voluntarily gone up to mp4 yet.

    The only reason he could have for staying in mp3 is because it would part of his role, of his character, and it makes him feel comfortable, regardless of the newbie capping. Yet, I see no such development in his character, contrary to others such as Yoshi, who do abide by this 'unofficial' rule.
    If he is staying in mp3, to defy or even vilify the 'established order' (hah), or perhaps simply because he likes the feeling of power, relative to weaklings such as mp3, then many thoughts come to mind, such as daring or provoking him to coming to mp5 to show his true worth and test his mettle, but I would be avoiding the issue.

    You're a coward.

    But I'm not so adamant as to condemn you on sight. Honestly, if you would just go to mp4, or at the very least would strike an effort as to actually apologize for the newbie capping, then my opinion would change. As it currently stands however, I hold you in one of the lowest lights imaginable.

    I would ask for the main participants, especially February, to hurry up and make a move, as this topic, like many others that drag on for a long time, will debase itself and degrade into flaming, sooner or later.
