i think alot of cake and boos should be involved for fun. and maybe set up a mini quest for MD's birthday. 

 

I also feel that something needs to be done about mp3's. there are next to none left and it makes it harder for the mp3's that are here. i also feel the same with mp4's. mp3 and mp4 are hard to come by. most people that start to play usually dont play it again. and also alot of older players had left. I think we should do something new to get more attention to this game and have more people play. i feel MD is growing more and more quiet by the day, and im sure others feel the same about that being an issue

Tuesday the CTs would like to do a Fat Tuesday in honor of Molequert.  A day of the dead to party hard, remember stories of old, and make up ones that sound better then the real ones happened.  Through the streets of the East (if viscosity could be lifted up to Mols grave site.

[22/02/15 18:03] BFH the WHITE:Today we gather here in order to commence preparations for our 10th Anniversary. 
[22/02/15 18:04] BFH the WHITE:First, I will give the details we know so far. Then I will open the discussion on several topics. For now just listen. 
[22/02/15 18:04] BFH the WHITE:This will be a ten days event that will take place from April 14 to April 24.
[22/02/15 18:04] Azkhael: (Here
[22/02/15 18:04] BFH the WHITE:Mur will host a couple of secret events and the rest will be planned by you, the community. Isn't that cool ? 
[22/02/15 18:04] BFH the WHITE: (welcome :P
[22/02/15 18:05] Azkhael: (Thank you
[22/02/15 18:05] BFH the WHITE:I was assigned the organization role, which means that I will be the one of scheduling the ten days event. However, that doesn’t mean that I will host all events, quests and contests. 
[22/02/15 18:05] BFH the WHITE:We need questers to make all sorts of events. 
[22/02/15 18:06] BFH the WHITE:As announced before those questers will be rewarded for their contribution to the anniversary organization. 
[22/02/15 18:06] BFH the WHITE:now the next thing is something cool :D 
[22/02/15 18:06] BFH the WHITE:Also the questers can request any sorts of tools (tools that already exist ingame) to me, as long as they make sense for your quest. 
[22/02/15 18:06] BFH the WHITE:Your request will pass two filters, first will be me. 
[22/02/15 18:07] Rikstar: (You mean by questers the quest creators?
[22/02/15 18:07] BFH the WHITE:. If I think whatever you are requesting makes sense and you should get that item, because it will help you with X event or quest, I will pass your request to Chewett. 
[22/02/15 18:07] BFH the WHITE: (yes
[22/02/15 18:07] BFH the WHITE: (quest creators :D
[22/02/15 18:07] BFH the WHITE: (or event creators same thing
[22/02/15 18:07] BFH the WHITE:. If he approves it you get it. 
[22/02/15 18:08] Chewett:I will review the idea for any technical reasons, aka stuff we dont want to give out for specific reasons 
[22/02/15 18:08] Chewett:Likely BFH will approve anything I will approve 
[22/02/15 18:08] JadenDew: ( i always thought questers refer to people who are playing, not making the quest.. confused me for abit ><
[22/02/15 18:08] BFH the WHITE:AND Make sure you give me valid reasons to get X thing, aka explain why you need it/how you will use it. 
[22/02/15 18:08] Chewett:But I know any technical problems with stuff 
[22/02/15 18:09] BFH the WHITE:now 
[22/02/15 18:09] BFH the WHITE:the following is a proposal 
[22/02/15 18:09] BFH the WHITE:if you guys can come with a better idea speak up 
[22/02/15 18:10] BFH the WHITE:I also want ten hosts, one per day. 
[22/02/15 18:10] BFH the WHITE:During the past, council hosted many of the days. The fact that we have to rely on a couple of people to run stuff sucks. 
[22/02/15 18:10] BFH the WHITE: (by many of the days, I mean many of the anniversary days
[22/02/15 18:10] Asthir:Each event should run for one day only? 
[22/02/15 18:10] BFH the WHITE:no 
[22/02/15 18:11] BFH the WHITE:but each host will host one day 
[22/02/15 18:11] BFH the WHITE:So I want ten volunteers to host one day of the anniversary 
[22/02/15 18:11] Azkhael:Any event that would disrupt other events should, however, ideally run for only one day though, correct? 
[22/02/15 18:11] BFH the WHITE:As host you will have all power over that day, you will schedule and move accordingly, you will contact land leaders, quest creators, whoever you need to contact just to make your day successful. 
[22/02/15 18:11] BFH the WHITE:I will serve as general moderator for the process. 
[22/02/15 18:11] Assira the Black:Hmm... 
[22/02/15 18:12] Rikstar:Sounds good. 
[22/02/15 18:12] BFH the WHITE:Az: we will discuss later ways of scheduling stuff 
[22/02/15 18:12] Azkhael:Noted. 
[22/02/15 18:13] BFH the WHITE:Az: one of my concerns was that in the past many quest got released during the initial days, leaving the other days with nothing 
[22/02/15 18:13] BFH the WHITE:we will discuss that later 
[22/02/15 18:13] BFH the WHITE:If you choose to become a host, you will be contacted by me weekly to see what’s the progress and if you need any assistance tools. 
[22/02/15 18:13] BFH the WHITE:This way we are making our lives easier, we are distributing the load of work, and we make sure things get done. 
[22/02/15 18:14] BFH the WHITE:So I open discussion on the host topic. 
[22/02/15 18:14] BFH the WHITE:Any comments, ideas or concerns? 
[22/02/15 18:14] Chewett:Hosts will also have the ability to request coding 
[22/02/15 18:14] Chewett:I will be helping the event by coding things 
[22/02/15 18:14] Rikstar:So who gets chosen? 
[22/02/15 18:14] Azkhael:How should hosts be decided, in the case of overabundance of applications? 
[22/02/15 18:14] BFH the WHITE:dictadure! 
[22/02/15 18:14] TheRichMerchant: (it should worl
[22/02/15 18:14] Rikstar:I would personaly say by voting on the forums? 
[22/02/15 18:15] BFH the WHITE:now more serious 
[22/02/15 18:15] TheRichMerchant: (work
[22/02/15 18:15] BFH the WHITE:Hosts should apply in forums, I will open a topic later for that 
[22/02/15 18:15] :*Grido* passed Memory stone to JadenDew 
[22/02/15 18:16] BFH the WHITE:so 
[22/02/15 18:17] BFH the WHITE:application will include your playername, id, day you choose to host (aka days you are available) and why you think you are goood for the position 
[22/02/15 18:17] BFH the WHITE:makes sense? 
[22/02/15 18:17] BFH the WHITE: :D 
[22/02/15 18:17] Rikstar:Why what they plan to do? 
[22/02/15 18:17] Rikstar:Because this could easily be seen as a power position just to get stuff. 
[22/02/15 18:18] :JadenDew passed Memory stone to Grido 
[22/02/15 18:18] BFH the WHITE:i dont get your question 
[22/02/15 18:18] BFH the WHITE:power will be temporal for that day 
[22/02/15 18:18] Aelis:Are the hosts supposed to be quest creators? Or is this something like a "coordinator" position? 
[22/02/15 18:18] Rikstar:I mean the abusement of power. 
[22/02/15 18:18] BFH the WHITE:coordinator position
[22/02/15 18:19] Azkhael:'Why what they plan to do" ...? Did you mean "Why not also ask what they plan to do?"? 
[22/02/15 18:19] Rikstar:Yes, Askhael! 
[22/02/15 18:19] BFH the WHITE:you will coordinate that day, hence you will make sure that that day is filled with events 
[22/02/15 18:19] dst:what happened to MoC? 
[22/02/15 18:19] Rikstar:MoC was dead right? 
[22/02/15 18:20] dst:that's molquort 
[22/02/15 18:20] Azkhael:Rikstar means to ask why not also add a field to the application for the candidate to briefly comment on their intentions with the event. 
[22/02/15 18:20] BFH the WHITE:I can add that question as well rik 
[22/02/15 18:20] Rikstar:Ah, you're right. 
[22/02/15 18:20] Pipstickz:Good luck BFH! 
[22/02/15 18:20] BFH the WHITE:MoC? well MoC was council stuff

[22/02/15 18:21] BFH the WHITE:sorry ex council members, if any here :( 
[22/02/15 18:21] Rikstar:What will happen with the players who abuse this position? 
[22/02/15 18:21] dst:but MoC could still be played, couldn't ? 
[22/02/15 18:21] dst:coulnd't it* 
[22/02/15 18:21] BFH the WHITE:yes that's correct d 
[22/02/15 18:22] dst:like Confused Santa 
[22/02/15 18:22] BFH the WHITE:I will act as a Global Moderator for this event Rick. Anything abused in MD is penalized 
[22/02/15 18:23] BFH the WHITE:the tools provided to quest creators and hosts should be exclusively used for whatever they were given out 
[22/02/15 18:23] BFH the WHITE:items/spells given for this will also expire after the anniversary 
[22/02/15 18:23] BFH the WHITE: (thanks Pip
[22/02/15 18:24] BFH the WHITE:any other questions, concerns, comments about the host thing? 
[22/02/15 18:24] BFH the WHITE:like the idea? think it will work? 
[22/02/15 18:24] Chewett:Oops 
[22/02/15 18:24] Rikstar:It's a good idea in my opinion. 
[22/02/15 18:25] TheRichMerchant:it would work, but you'll havae some people take care of multiple days :) 
[22/02/15 18:25] TheRichMerchant:cuz you won't get 10 if you are too rigurous about applications 
[22/02/15 18:26] BFH the WHITE:lets see how many apply, and we will work out from there 
[22/02/15 18:26] Chewett: (working on chat, if something breaks shout
[22/02/15 18:26] BFH the WHITE:there's nothing rigorous about it, it's a simple forum application :P 
[22/02/15 18:27] BFH the WHITE:now, lets discuss the scheduling thing 
[22/02/15 18:27] dst:when does the B-day exactly start? 
[22/02/15 18:27] dst:on what day? 
[22/02/15 18:27] Azkhael:A good question. 
[22/02/15 18:27] BFH the WHITE: (april 14-24
[22/02/15 18:27] dst:14th of April? 
[22/02/15 18:27] dst:ok, thank you 
[22/02/15 18:28] Azkhael:Thank you. 
[22/02/15 18:28] dst:that's a Tuesday and my first working day after Easter :D 
[22/02/15 18:28] dst:not good... 
[22/02/15 18:28] Chewett:Why does it start then? 
[22/02/15 18:28] BFH the WHITE:so for scheduling we can use doodle 
[22/02/15 18:29] BFH the WHITE:So basically I loaded the 10 days to doodle and distributed the hours. Lets say you want to run a quest day one at 0:00 ST, then go to the following doodle link 
[22/02/15 18:29] BFH the WHITE:https://doodle.com/mhaa27i4vgrssf5v 
[22/02/15 18:29] BFH the WHITE:and on calendar view add your name followed by quest name and select the time slots it will take. 
[22/02/15 18:29] BFH the WHITE:or any other ideas? 
[22/02/15 18:30] Rikstar:Doodle doesn't load. D: 
[22/02/15 18:30] BFH the WHITE:https://doodle.com/mhaa27i4vgrssf5v 
[22/02/15 18:30] BFH the WHITE:try again? 
[22/02/15 18:31] Rikstar:Even the main site is offline for me. 
[22/02/15 18:31] Chewett:Doodle works for me 
[22/02/15 18:31] dst:it loads for me as well 
[22/02/15 18:32] Chewett:Just going to say, that doodle is horrific 
[22/02/15 18:32] Chewett:You really need a calender style thing... like the forum one 
[22/02/15 18:32] dst:ye! 
[22/02/15 18:32] Rikstar:It must be a problem with my internet provider/. 
[22/02/15 18:32] JadenDew:laoded the doodle 
[22/02/15 18:32] BFH the WHITE:any other tools? 
[22/02/15 18:32] dst:or at least have the weeks one under the other 
[22/02/15 18:32] Azkhael:Loads. 
[22/02/15 18:32] Rikstar:I have used microsoft projects only that's expensive. 
[22/02/15 18:33] :Fang Archbane yawns 
[22/02/15 18:33] BFH the WHITE: (same here
[22/02/15 18:33] Azkhael:Verticalization would be nice, yes. 
[22/02/15 18:34] BFH the WHITE:ok i will find a tool 
[22/02/15 18:34] BFH the WHITE:"soon" 
[22/02/15 18:34] :Rikstar chuckles 
[22/02/15 18:34] Guardian of Root 24230:Afternoon all. 
[22/02/15 18:34] Rikstar:So we are preparing for the MD birthday of 2050? 
[22/02/15 18:35] BFH the WHITE:lol 
[22/02/15 18:35] Rikstar:Good afternoon! 
[22/02/15 18:35] Azkhael:"'Soon'" :P 
[22/02/15 18:35] BFH the WHITE:now i open discussion for any ideas 
[22/02/15 18:35] :Assira the Black nods to the Guardian 
[22/02/15 18:35] BFH the WHITE:whatever you want to say, suggest etc 
[22/02/15 18:36] dst:I LOVE cliky quests AND crafting ones 
[22/02/15 18:37] dst:don't give me essays 
[22/02/15 18:37] BFH the WHITE:you see chew, I am so good that people dont have suggestions 
[22/02/15 18:37] JadenDew: (erm been distracted.. what ideas are we discussing?
[22/02/15 18:37] Assira the Black:Hmm... Well some people's days do not match md days very well... So is there a way to host partial days? 
[22/02/15 18:37] :Fang Archbane Smells Sasha on that Guardian 
[22/02/15 18:37] dst:I am also all for transparancy 
[22/02/15 18:37] :Azkhael cackles sinisterly 
[22/02/15 18:37] Junior:Yay i made it in time for the discussions 
[22/02/15 18:37] dst:not dd like quests 
[22/02/15 18:38] Rikstar:Also is there a way so that some programmers could bond up with quest writers? 
[22/02/15 18:38] BFH the WHITE:that can be a possibility assira 
[22/02/15 18:38] Rikstar:Since I can program, but I an't produce nice quests. 
[22/02/15 18:38] Azkhael:I was too late for the cackle to be in-context - oh well. 
[22/02/15 18:38] BFH the WHITE:simply put your available time in forums 
[22/02/15 18:38] BFH the WHITE:remember host doesn;t have to be online all the time 
[22/02/15 18:38] Azkhael:How should quests that interfere with participation in others be ideally handled, BFH? 
[22/02/15 18:38] BFH the WHITE:he/she simply coordinates 
[22/02/15 18:38] Junior:land related activities? 
[22/02/15 18:39] :Assira the Black nods 
[22/02/15 18:39] Junior:I.e. I am working with sasha on a GG community activity 
[22/02/15 18:39] BFH the WHITE:Az: the idea behind having a single day host, is to allow the host participate and take part of the other nine days 
[22/02/15 18:40] :Fang Archbane Hops into DewDews arms and falls asleep 
[22/02/15 18:40] Azkhael:Not for the host - I mean, for instance, quests where it might be in the players' interest to avoid public locations. 
[22/02/15 18:40] :JadenDew drops Fang right away 
[22/02/15 18:40] Azkhael:Which would, consequently, jeopardize participation in other events in the same day. 
[22/02/15 18:40] Junior: (oh yeah! its 10 days now!
[22/02/15 18:40] JadenDew:no touching... you should know by now.. 
[22/02/15 18:41] :Fang Archbane Feels unloved as he hops onto Risk head and naps quietly 
[22/02/15 18:41] Fang Archbane: (*Riks
[22/02/15 18:41] :Rikstar feels his new hat and smiles. 
[22/02/15 18:41] BFH the WHITE:Az: yeah, that should be avoided, as much as possible, you should target events to most of the population 
[22/02/15 18:42] BFH the WHITE:if any quest creator needs his/her quest to run in a specific place, he/she should request me that ahead of time to see if I can make it happen 
[22/02/15 18:43] BFH the WHITE:but the idea is to distribute things in a manner to avoid that situation 
[22/02/15 18:43] Azkhael:My bad, to clarify: I refer to quests where the players may, for instance, want to hide from others for the duration or for a phase. 
[22/02/15 18:43] BFH the WHITE:@Junior- what about lands? 
[22/02/15 18:44] BFH the WHITE:that's a normal thing for quests Az, it's something hard to avoid I guess 
[22/02/15 18:45] BFH the WHITE:any other questions?
[22/02/15 18:46] BFH the WHITE:so it seems all is set 
[22/02/15 18:47] BFH the WHITE:thnks guys 
[22/02/15 18:47] :[Spell] @LOGS 
[22/02/15 18:47] JadenDew:YES LOGS
