      LotC Community Meeting Minutes 01/22/17   01/23/2017

      LotC Community Meeting Minutes 01/22/17 [!] Arockstar28 opened the meeting.   What’s going on with the forums?   Tahmas: Tythus is handling the situation as we speak. It had been fixed earlier but as Tythus had other engagements, he had to step away. Thus, the attack resumed. Tythus will return and continue working on it later. There is no set time as to when they will be back up.   Can I expect the possibility of a frequent mandatory purge of staff teams to fight stagnancy and people just doing jack****? - Jonificus   Josh3738: These decisions are left up to the team leads. Some teams may be purged while others may not.   Why is the map so big? Why was mobspawning turned on? Why do you still keep it on? - Combine   Teegah: The map is large as that is what the community had requested. Mobspawning is turned as it contributes to; The minas economy. Killing mobs have a chance to drop minas. Items for Nexus crafting: Drops necessary for crafting certain items are only given by killing mobs.   How much money do admins actually cut from the donations? Was Tythus’ college paid by LotC?- Chaotikal   Tahmas: Admins receive nothing from the donations. Any funds collected from the server go back into the server. And no, Tythus’ college education was not funded by the server.   Is there any other race being planned for the future?  - Dewlox   Lore Team representatives: No.   501warhead: When it comes down to it, the addition of races will only be considered if it is practical for the server as a whole. In order to implement new ideas that may be considered, it must be submitted the same way as any other lore - through lore submission and review of the LT.   Axios storyline? Will there be a new race implemented/introduced in the next map? - Z3m0s   RideTheSky: It’s going to revolve around a giant chicken. There are currently meetings ongoing in regards to the Axios storyline. The LT is helping with the process and things are still in the works.Things are not being written down or released as the need for confidentiality is necessary to ensure the community is introduced to it at the same time.   What happened to the chapters of Axios? - Nug   LeoWarrior14: The chapters of Axios were started by Benbo (the previous LT lead) but he has since left.   RideTheSky: Benbo took all the documents concerning the chapters of Axios with him as he left therefore there is nothing left for the LT to build upon. Tsuyose wished to continue but seeing as how there was nothing, the Devs needed to remove it.   How long does it take for a charter to get a response? - Adam_barnett   Arockstar28: Ever has appointed certain GMs to handle charter distribution as well as stating that the times to obtain a charter will be shortened. However, they may still take up to a week to be approved.   Who let a trial GM, not even on the war team, arockstar28, make a worldedit on sand during the height of fighting, in a laggy open field skirmish war claim, which inexplicably crashed the server? -Harold   Josh3738: Present members of the war team determined that it would be an interesting dynamic to add to the war claim which unfortunately caused issues along the way.   Gusmarzku: The idea of a bomb was requested by numerous people.   501warhead: The worldedit was not the cause of the crash. There are several mechanisms set in place on the server that prevent WE from interfering and crashing the server.   Addition to previous question: If this was to happen, why were both sides not informed? -Harold   Arockstar28: The underlying reason was it that the bomb was to be a surprise.   Why did the warclaim get allowed to carry on? -Harold   Gusmarzku: There was no reason to not continue it. As well, Admins and GMs came to the decision to keep going.   Did the warteam agree that the war claim should be voided and redone? -Harold   Gusmarzku: No. The war claim continued as by agreement with Admins and GMs, as stated previously.   Did the warteam agree that this worldedit was even a good idea during the middle of the battle? -Harold   Gusmarzku: Yes.   Who made the decision to allow the war claim as valid, when staff incompetency was the main contributing factor to the crash? -Harold   Josh3738: Once the server was back up, the war claim was still playable. Therefore, as the war claim was still playable, there was no reason not to continue and no reason to void it.   Crashing during an open field skirmish is, historically, a voided war claim.  Why was this one allowed? -Harold   Josh3738: Once the server came back up, the server was capable of continuing its operations so there was no reason to void it.   Why is the ET so large? - FuryFire   RideTheSky: The ET is large as it consists of both actors and builders alike. Seeing as how the actors are trying to interact with as many players of the server as possible, time zones come into play. Recruiting ET members who can accommodate and create events for certain time zones is essential. At this time, the ET is looking for players in the Pacific time zone.   The team is also large at the moment because it allows the ET to be stricter on what it is they want. Considering that the community is large, a large team is also needed. However, the ET management is in the works of sizing down the team. Seeing as how they have no quota, the need for activity is the primary requirement for ET and such is taken into consideration when taking on new members.   Are donations keeping up with the monthly and yearly costs? -Wendigo   Tahmas: The server is up and running, so yes.   501warhead: The Christmas sale helped exponentially with the revenue of donations. It should be noted once again that donations always go back to the server and that the Admins do not receive anything. A warm thank you is extended to anyone that helped contribute to the server during the holiday sale.   Any plans to upgrade the server box/host or have you already? -Wendigo   501warhead: Currently the server has more than 64 GBs of RAM and is running very well. While optimization is being sought after, there is no need to place any more expenditure in upgrading.   What’s the max run time we have with the current reserves of money (did the server need personal funds)? -Wendigo   501warhead: While personal funds have been used in the very distant past, they have not been for a long time now. Our current revenue of donations sustains our run time for the moment and donation savings maintain our run time into the distant future. As for the max runtime, that is unknown.   Current and future plans going forward A) Bring in new players & B) Player retention? -Wendigo   501warhead: There is currently a project in the works to help integrate new players into their respective player bases. Getting to know the other players and establishing a sense of community is necessary for player retention.  A majority of the players here have remained as they have established friendships and relations with other players. Therefore, catering to the newer players is essential.   RideTheSky: The AT and ET are working on a project where a new player will spawn in, immediately be immersed into roleplay with a veteran member, and will essentially be introduced into the appropriate player base.   In the past, this flopped as the players were all introduced to the human capital. So the prime idea is to showcase the diversity of the server to the new players and allow them to choose their own path.   Future plugins? -Wendigo   501warhead: Integrating new plugins takes a lot of time and because of this, along with the possibility of the plugin failing, there are no announcements in regards to releasing new plugins. However, at the moment there is a fast travel overhaul underway as well as an instance dungeon plugin. There may be new skills being worked on, but it is uncertain. There are larger projects in the works that the server will be notified of in due time.   Is anything being done concerning the voting websites? The information is outdated and some websites no longer work? -Wendigo   Tahmas: It’s all Ski’s fault, blame him.   Gusmarzku: I’ll do it.   501warhead: Tythus needs to configure the voting settings as the issue may lie within the registration on the voting sites. It’s up to him at this point.   What benefits have been seen, if any, from emerging the LT and MT? - Cybermarzku   Tahmas: The MT is now able to have more control and work more effectively with the lore pertaining to magics. The MT is also now able to vote on what magics they wish to see implemented.   JaxOff: There is more cooperation between both teams but there is not a significant amount of improvement.   Bokermon: With both teams being together in the same chat it helps a lot, communication wise. It’s not perfect, but it’s better. The MT now has more say in what it is they think will be an improvement/detriment to the magic found on the server.   1.8 pvp when???? - Flurgh   Teegah: Just this past friday there was a meeting between the Devs and some PvPers discussing said issue. During this meeting, swing timers as well  as plans concerning PvP were discussed. Also, there are currently three players on the server who have swing timerless weapons. These weapons were permitted during PvP combat and the Devs observed to see what the results were. The issue arises with the fact that, without the swing timers, there is a hit delay and no possibility of combos.   Assassin of Awesome: Removing swing timers isn’t as easy as it seems. There are problems with it.
        When are we getting rid of the two other inactive islands, that aren’t Tahn? - Kinslayer   Tahmas: This is being evaluated. The activity as well as events done on the respective islands are always being monitored. It cannot be said when or even if the islands will be removed. This is to be discussed among the Admins.   501warhead: Removing the islands will result in less space for new settlements that wish to separate away from the main capital cities. However, the problem still exists that new players will find themselves on these inactive islands and only be confused as to where they are. More will be discussed.

  2. At his desk, Bancroft reads through the various legislative papers and rules of the west, coming across this document. He smiles, knowing that he will need not kill his fellow humans on the field of battle again anytime soon.
  3. Thanks for acknowledging I actually wasn't the mastermind behind your ban. Beyond that I have no personal qualms and wish you the best of luck in getting unbanned.

  5. Okay so. This entire appeal is you just trashing Ever, and then being like "Hoi doi I didnu du nuthin". You are incredibly insincere and patronising on all accounts. Your ban was 10 days long, you've served 12 days and now you will server another 2 weeks. Is this harsh? Yes, but I'm a harsh person and frankly you haven't learned your lesson. "B-But how did I trash Ever?" Times Ever is mentioned: Four Times you apologised: None Just because you stopped before you were finally banned for it does not suddenly make you exempt from the rules. Allow me to quote myself here: Please refer to this page if you are unfamiliar: If you break a rule, you get punished for it. It does not matter if you suddenly 'stopped' breaking the rule, you still broke it and are subject to punishment. All this appeal has done has proven that you're not apologetic, that you do not feel even the slightest remorse for what you did, and that you do not respect the rules enough to play on the server. Please take these two weeks as a 'growing period' if you will, and see how far this gets you. You may appeal on the 10th of March, and I hope you enjoy Pancake Day this Tuesday!
  6. Alright, so running around this map there is a lack of ruins and such around. Mysterious ruins from ancient peoples that have been long gone and stocked with loot are a staple of fantasy genre. Now, the bounty board has helped add more interesting world events and builds, but the idea of hidden secret ruins players can enter and find loot or ET's can run events inside would be awesome. It'd provide a way to gain minas and items from abandoned constructions and would prove a valuable asset. Now, this is just an idea, and I'm not gonna get into specific stuff yet... I want to hear what you all think. So, what's everyone's thoughts on this idea?
  7. This application has been denied. Moved to the Denied Applications forum.
  8. Milton Lowedge uses a cane to get around Bastion, having taking the arrow during the patrol. He sighs, knowing it will be some time before he is back into the action.

  14. (( It's a rather long process requiring hours of preparation. I'm not going to spoil it all here but it does involve surgery, three different types of Ascended, all of great skill, two inter-dimensional rifts (Ascended Sealing), and lots of fire. Everything about the ritual has been pre-approved by respective members of the Ascended and ilikefooddude gave his consent after speaking with the LT. It's a fun ritual, very spectacular, and it doesn't undermine how powerful flesh-smithing is. ))
  15. You're wiping it again already?
  16. Accepted.
  17. Denied due to lack of understanding the rules of the Enchantry.
