    There are 292 bugs in need of sorting. LISTBUGS UNSORTED to see them.
    There have been 79 bugs reported in the last 7 days.

    What's the bug number? I'll check it out for you.

    /me will categorize, test, and assign bugs for foods.

    Sucking at emoting. Why do I not proofread my emotes? I don't even know.

    I only very rarely proofread my emotes. Mostly, this works out ok. Sometimes this bites me in the rear. :( I feel your pain.

    Ahah, I purposely don't look over my emotes before I post them. The reason for this is because I always end up second guessing myself, rewriting parts, and then being upset that I didn't do what I wanted to because there wasn't enough oomph. So now I'm in the practice of tossing my emotes out there and hoping for the best. It's generally done me well and I feel like I've become more adventurous with my roleplay because of it.

    I let it go to the point of emotes being stream of consciousness more than punctually correct, at least 1/4 of the time.

    After a certain informative paragraph made to Crafters, I only proofread my emotes to ensure there's no CLT before it. *eyeshift* I rage at having some 30 giftbags over multiple characters and only having pulled one artifact (rebirth necklace). I have a hard time justifying making a purchase right now, beyond my slim wallet.

    I also rage at excessively long logs not put into spoilers...

    I guess I have no rage about emotes as I rarely ever do any, too much of my time is taken up in bashing.

    Also, I agree with @Rou. Of all my giftbags (some 100+) I have not once gotten anything particularly useful, short of chocolates. I hate to say it, but this round of giftbags is quite lame considering the epicness of it last round. And yes, before anyone states why, I do understand why they made the giftbags the way they are... I just don't like it. However, that doesn't make it any less disappointing.

    Giftbags are more in line with chests now. Honestly, we couldn't keep the honeypot forever.

    I like to think the old giftbags promoted growth in general. There's a balance between that and profit. It just seems like an extreme shift.

    While there's no denying a value reduction, we back these changes up with lots of math. We're seeing a really great distribution of good prizes. Unfortunately, I think you're getting the short end of the RNG stick.

    ETA: I hate our forums so much.

    So, did Aetolia not make great profit during the epic giftbag sales?? Because I can't help but think they made more money from the last giftbags than this one...

    We don't sit down and say OH DEAR WE'RE NOT MAKING ENOUGH MONEY. We (and this "we" is on a corporate level) assess how our promotions are stimulating sales. In our case, we were giving away a lot of great stuff, and probably not hurting our sales, but we were inconsistent among the games. As we all follow the same promotion month-to-month, it's pretty crucial that we offer roughly the same value.

    I get that we had a good thing going, but this promotion is just like combat balance or anything else. One can always find a way to justify the option that benefits him the most.

    My Rages lately: Not knowing enough about coding to formulate a working offense, or where to start making one, feeling relatively helpless in most aspects (RP/PvP at least, PvE can't really be considered difficult since you don't rely on others for it). Spending too much time trying to be motivated to keep asking for help/interaction annnd finally - missing @Ivoln and related stuff :( Come backz! hehe

    My rage is that noone seems to want to sell globes anymore.

    Are they still even available via chests or were they removed??

    @zsadist - People aren't as likely to buy the chests without a promo attached to them, so there's less floating around. Go buy chests yourself :P

    SENTINELS NEWS #2120
    Date: 5/11/2014 at 1:03
    From: Oleis, the Infused
    To : Everyone
    Subj: Election

    After a disastrous bug ruined the results of the first election, Seir
    conceded and the three agreed among themselves to place Trager as
    Guildmaster of the Sentinels. Please excuse the confusion and disruption and congratulate your new leader.


    Penned by my hand on the 17th of Lleian, in the year 419 MA.

    -----------

    I understand that there was a bug, but this solution is lame. Elections aren't about what a few people decide. They are democratic and voting - or abstaining - is how people reflect their support, and what levels of support, they have for potential leaders.

    There WEREN'T an potential leaders though. Arbre stepped down, and Wylliam and Seir both withdrew - Seir just didn't get to post about it before this clusterunicorns.
  • MoireanMoirean Chairmander PortlandMember Posts: 5,612 ✭✭✭✭✭
    The election started less than a day ago. Even if there were no other leaders who wanted to join in - which we won't know, now - we now are robbed of seeing the vote breakdown, which is a pretty big thing, as it shows how much support the new leader has and has ramifications for other potential leaders in the future. Beyond that, we just can't vote. Player politics is one of the game's big draws and we weren't able to participate in that, with the leader just appointed. It feels like a really frustrating solution with the mechanics throw in our faces.

    Then recontest. The point was to have a fair election. When I asked them who should be GM in the meantime, they both bailed and said Trager. As it turns out, he was winning before the issues started anyway.

    I'll give any Sentinel 10k to contest if they want it.

    I doubt I want GM myself. I have orgs to lead on Moi. In addition, contesting an incumbent versus contesting an open spot is not the same thing. We also don't know how many votes he'd have gotten - does the guild unanimously want him? Are they only tentatively taking him as GM?

    My primary point is that an admin stepping in to player politics and appointing a leader - regardless of what outcome seemed inevitable - really undercuts our power as players, in a game advertising player-run politics. Yeah, in the end, everything may be up to admin choices, but it kinda leaves a bad taste when that's presented so explicitly.
