  1. I'd say I'll miss you guys more than you know, but that would be nonsense because you know perfectly well. MagicDuel is one of the deepest experiences of my life, especially given it exists on such a shallow plane. This is a place of real connection and it probably always will be. You're all a bunch of weirdos and I love you for it. There's lots I could say, but I'll spare you the sap. I will keep an eye on our garden from a distance so don't burn it down. Keep it real friends!
  2. http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/11048-community-garden-artwork-quest-1/ Congratulations to neno veliki, winner of this quest and winner of a wishpoint. While none of the contributors competed the entire series, neno veliki's windmill design led to his successful design and implementation of the community garden tool shed. As the top contributing artist during my tenure as garden keeper, I am awarding neno veliki a wish point for all his artwork contributions.
  3. Neno Veliki is the winner of the community garden artwork quest, which I awarded after he added the toolshed drawing. He refused a WP then, wanting to add more drawings before receiving. However, I am passing this role to Menhir and completing as much of my outstanding obligations as possible. http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/11048-community-garden-artwork-quest-1/
  4. Congratulations to Menhir, the new Garden Keeper! With new blood, may he breathe new life into the MagicDuel Community Garden!

  6. Listen to (not just hear) your partner. Make a point to say things in a way that doesn't intentionally upset your partner. (ie: don't be spiteful when you're hurt) Apologize and explain to your partner what you were feeling when you said things to intentionally upset them. Express your love and appreciation every day. Show physical love (not just sex) every day, like holding hands, hugging, any kind of comforting touch Be clear about your own needs and desires and don't sacrifice what's important to you to make a relationship work. You don't want to regret your loss and blame your p

    android mobile

    Flash apk is easily side loaded onto recent android devices, and works with most browsers including stock android browser (does NOT work on Google Chrome). Some browsers require superuser privileges to user flash. The problem is that touch screen flash is a poor mismatch, especially for MD. It's very difficult for instance to scroll through documents like announcements or messages. Android is mouse/trackpad compatible with either a Bluetooth or USB accessory (using USB OTG). However, with even a single accessory, you might as well be on a laptop. I have never tried android with a mouse
  8. Mur's support in this way means more to me than he may know. The community garden as it is now is tied to me and my role. However, I spend little time in game interacting with people and most of my role as designer has existed in the forum, rather than in game. I'd still like to find a garden manager to fill this void. Much of my interaction with the MD Council has been a discussion of how to implement gardening into the MD network of resources. Mur's dedicating his energy in this direction is a big step for MD in my opinion, and the community garden as it is now can be a playground for
  9. I don't know much (or anything) about coding/programming, but if there is even any little thing I can learn and do to support transition to html5, I'd be happy to support this action. In the year and a half since I've lived in my current home, my presence on MD has diminished significantly for many reasons, including the fact that I don't have wireline internet. Most of my internet use is via android, which doesn't provide a great MD flash experience. MD seems well suited to mobile and an update to html5 could (maybe?) even support an app interface which I would gladly pay for, given the o
  10. Thanks for.offering up your ideas, thoughts, and criticism. It is obvious to me that my own lack of participation has been a real hindrance to this project gaining momentum. Unfortunately, I still can't promise participation, which is why I'm looking for other leaders. What kind of incentives would you want to become a garden leader? It seems we really need two leaders in particular, a manager and a quest creator. I have a few wishpoints to give out. If I ran a quest creation contest, with the best quest creation getting a WP and another WP to be given as quest reward, would you partic
  11. Despite the typically mean way she expresses it, dst makes a valid point. As I mentioned, I didn't mean for this topic to be a rant... it just sorta came out that way. I suppose I needed to express my feelings and this is what rose to the surface. I'm not trying to force my project onto the community, but I do need to know if the community values this project. If a community garden is not something useful to anyone but me, then it's not really worth my trying to keep it going when I'm not available to use it. Over the two years, I have received an incredible amount of positive feedback
  12. Greetings MagicDuel Community! So now we're in the middle of May and what's going on in the community garden? I don't know! I haven't been there! Nobody has used the Community Garden Logs! Okay, here's the deal. You've probably all noticed that I barely get online anymore. I have gotten a new (old) MacBook so at least I CAN get online, but there's more to it than that. When I started playing MD, I had a one year old and a two year old kid. Now they're four and five, and I have another six month old baby. When I am at home, I spend a lot more time playing with my family than pla
  13. If someone is willing to give Tom Pouce 2 gold as a reward for the scarecrow contest, I will repay 2 gold and an additional 2 silver when I am able. Thanks everyone.
  14. My computer went haywire today and will likely be out of commission forever. Until I purchase a new laptop, I'll be mostly unavailable. I can easily access the forum on my phone, but I will not really be available in game...not that I have been particularly present in game recently anyway...but I'll be gone until I find a replacement. Keep up with your community garden plots and grow your own contest. Darkraptor, looking good. Take care all!

  16. Spring is upon us and we're gonna get festive! March 20 is the first day of spring and we will celebrate in the Community Garden @ 4:00st by planting trees on the western slope of the Community Garden to continue the establishment of our forest garden. Bring your seeds, seedlings, and saplings that you want to grow as a shared treasure of the community. We especially love fruit trees, but we are by no means limited to just fruits and nuts. Lets make it beautiful, tasty, and fun! Some ideas have been already shared on the [url="http://magicduel.invisionzone.com/topic/9588-community-garde
