    Please, yes +1
  2. I haven't had a chance to tinker with the new update as of yet, it seems my woodworking is screwed in terms of arrows but my bows and blacksmithing are slightly better. Either way it seems enjoyable compared to the hours of craft timers for certain things. The community needs to realize how hard coded nexus is into the server, like it basically runs mostly all the other plugins if I am not mistaken and if it were to be removed without a lot of reworking almost everything else would be butchered. Chill out and give them some time, it's not like they're paid for what they do and if you have that much of an issue with how they spend their time that's voluntary, go learn how to code yourself.
  3. LT Update Log - August

    Can I still inquire as to why Zarsies and Cameron were left out even though the other two have been readded? You explained why Phil and Will were readded, but not why the other two were not?
  4. @Harold  Could we please get an update on the Lore team situation? It hasbeen quite a bit and still have yet to hear any news, at least publicly about it.

  5. [✗] Clerical Wards [Re-written]

    Sadly I was told to avoid any wards like such that you have written by a few LM's while shopping ideas for my rewrite, I wish you luck though.
  6. Removal of the LT director

    It'll be handled by the Admins, a semi-official report has in a way he filed though I appreciate the topic being kept a current one as to not let people forget what's beien done. As for what @drfate786 has said, the LT that have been removed would not be slandered or drug through the mud. I've seen the evidence against them and it'll be handled from higher up the food chain, but it is in no way slandering or exposing any sort of bias. I cannot say for sure or not if the new LT were added for bias reasons but they should of took their time and more thoroughly interviewed people.
  7. Regarding recent removals

    They were given their proof, I have seen it. It's no proof in any form which is why I wish it shared to the community and more so want a reasoning to why he believes what he thought was bias warnented removal. I ask of him to explain how his bias is any different from their alleged bias.
  8. Regarding recent removals

    Let us not drop the fact that he removed two members of the Lore team for vague reasoning and the other two for almost no apparent reasons other than explaining lore and votes, that is something that should not have happened.
  9. Regarding recent removals

    Let's step back for a second and return to the focus on why I started this thread in the first place. Which is the removal and Phil, Cameron, Zarsies, and Kais. The proof you have given is vague and does not show any bias from an outside point of view. What does seem bias is your want to change how everything works and go through with certain lore, the way 501 is involved, and that way it was carried out. You can tell me to put my tinfoil hat on all day, but what I speak is facts. You may be one guy, but in a sense you do have an army. That is what the other team members are for. You simply just need to oversee them and guide them in a certain direction, but that doesn't mean you should remove them for not liking the way you are moving things but find out the why. Maybe the things they are opposing are things that are needed to be opposed, not because of bias.
  10. Regarding recent removals

    Leo: I agree Leo, I have not attacked anyone besides asking the questions of why. Flamboyant is brought up because in the end it his decision, he was the one who chooses to remove them based off of just as much evidence I have that he is being "bias". Though I at least have proof through his actions and the way he has gone out about things as well as some logs which I will not be shared publicly so that the other person involved in them does not get backlash they do not deserve.(And no it is not anyone of the four in which I speak about in my post). Ski: I am not attacking Flamboyant, merely asking why and speculating the same bias he accuses them of, I had no problem with the man before he chose the course of actions as he did. I have the reasonings why they were removed and if he does not wish to share them I will. It in no way drags their name through the mud nor does it defame them. They were removed for the speculation of bias, not the act of being bias. I simply want him to be open with the community.
  11. Regarding recent removals

    I would like you to ask the proof you have on this besides the few chat logs you have shown them, which mind you was showing lore that was accepted on how said thing works. As well you state they are difficult to work with the administration, but is it not part of the lore teams job to safe guard the servers lore and make sure things that go through are wanted by the community? Every feedback thread you have made have been very vague on what it is you are asking and the mathic age in which is happening has always been something unwanted and unneed. The opostion you speak of is a needed opostion as to protect the server for something that would upset everyone. I will same the same thing to the votes, is it not their job to express their opinion on topics brought up in the lore mag and if they think it not to fit or work to vote against it? You removed them for doing their job, a job in which they were very good at speaking from a point of someone on the oposite sides of them in terms of the things I roleplay. Might I also ask the question on why you didn't speak with them first before their removal and try to work things out or inform yourself on their point of views and why they might have voted yes or no on a magic? Not to mention the way you needless talk condisencingly to people in status's and skype chats, though I suppose I should go and grab my tinfoil hat shouldn't I? I never said the ascended were part of 6.0, just that they were used as a plot device. As for mathic age not being cannon, might I ask why a main event line was centered around it? One created by an admin and creative lead? And why is it the lore team has said nothing? I suppose that it because the ones that would say something have been removed.
  12. @Harold I would wish my topic to be unlocked as I do not only wish for a response from the lore director but the players themselves. I do not just wish to hear from the person who passed the judgement but those that witnessed it and wish to express their thoughts on it.

      I understand that as well, but it is not just their opinions. I can provide you with the proof in which I accuse him off but that will remain privy to you for reasons that are obvious. I wish it to be unlocked for the outside views posts as well as those that are in agreeance.

      @Lynx @Ambduscias As I have said, it will be unlocked when a response is made. That will probably be in the next twenty minutes or so, as far as I am aware. All i'm trying to do, is give the community the balanced overview of the situation, that's all. If you have proof, i'd suggest you either make an anonymous staff report, or send it over to me privately as I can take it further and will fully investigate. Cheers, Harold.

      Well I can provide the proof but that will be private to Harold.

      Providing proof to an admin without showing to anyone else will surely work!! xd

  14. Regarding recent removals

    I agree, I do not blame the ascended for anything just those pushing an agenda in staff in which shouldn't be pushed. As well I would like this to remain unlocked until people may express their opinions.
  15. Thoughts on the current lore team and the removal of Phil, Cameron, Zarsies, and Kais. To those unaware, over the past week, Flamboyant has removed four major members of the lore team for vague reasonings of bias. These reasonings being harsh votes on trials/loremags and soul stream lore, reasoning mind you that have almost to none in weight. This was done with no warning and they had not been talked to previously. On the added fact this decision was backed by the current “creative lead” and admin 501Warhead, with his reasoning of vague region lore Cameron and Phil had written in which he believed was overpowered objects that they wished to use to their advantage without bases of proof. In the wake of this, I ask the question if they were removed for bias or if it was Flamboyant and 501’s bias toward ascended, holy magic, and their own agenda as those before them did that warranted this removal in the first place. All four writers are well-known for their writings in voidal and dark arts magic subtypes and in no way were supportive toward the Ascended, though saying that so is a large portion of the server save a few niche cliques. Though from personal experience as a user of holy magic, none of these lore masters held any ill intent toward that subtype. Cameron actively invited the orders to his events, he even lead an event in which clerics and paladins destroyed the nexus and old wraiths, and offered to aid in writing lore in the past. Phil as well offered his help in the writing of lore for Tahariae and his advice on how to balance things out. I will use the word balance with emphasis as to point out that they hold no bias towards one group but wish for things to be equal as to add to the enjoyment of both sides. Phil as well has gone out of his way to try and balance his own lore, Archons, as to make them less of an overpowered presence. Shortly after their removal Nekkore, a user of holy magic, was added to the team by flamboyant ( https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/162941-accepted-pendingtime-to-nerf-clericalism/ , and though I am sure he will do a good job this addition only a few days after the removal of the four dark arts users raises my suspicions added to a few things Flamboyant has said though I will refrain from using logs. As what Flam’s motives are, I believe he wishes to push his own magic agenda and lore. Lore that these four would stand in opposition about. I do not know this for certain, but the changes that he has talked about wanting to make are not good ones from personal experience. Either way, I do not believe he held proper reasoning to do what he did but decided to go through with it anyway for his own gain as many before him have done. As for 501’s involvement in this, I ask why? My guess is to safeguard his ascended and to be sure his agenda and ideas go the way he wishes them to including lore for the current map and the next. Ideas in which these four would not get behind or would oppose. I will use the mathic age as an example. A piece of archaic lore written by himself and Juno that would render the world destroyed, this lore was archived and tossed for poor writing, plot holes, and the communities hate for it at the time. This lore was moved to implement if you wish to go give it a read yourself and decide whether or not this is something you’d want, though I doubt it would matter whether you do or don’t( https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/150746-the-mathic-cycle/ ). The proof I have for this is in the last line in the latest of the event teams event and post as well as the use and rebirth of Gazardiel who is the agent of this rebirth. As well I would like to add the ascended were used a plot key in bringing him back.( https://www.lordofthecraft.net/forums/topic/165330-a-city-burning-rise-of-the-justicars/ ) I write this post to raise the question of why and to inquire about the integrity of our teams and their openness with the community.
