    Moving this to the OOC subforum unless you can convince me that your character unironically uses ‘epic victory royale’ in roleplay.

    Feedback on Staff Reports

    Obviously there are exceptions, don’t get me wrong. Clear-cut false bans, unfounded verdicts, biased instances, etc etc. Though every moderator can view each other’s warnings and bans, so usually people will call out crappy bans when they see it. That being said, I do agree with you. But I’ve found that it definitely pays off if you wait a bit before submitting a ban report on a GM that banned you if the situation is more of a grey area. Otherwise you get something like that ban report Malgonious filed against myself, Niccum, and Paleo.

    Feedback on Staff Reports

    I let ban reports against me play out, I have fun responding to them. Though to add on to that, if you're going to report a staff member don't do it in the same day they 'abused' against you. Most times these complaints are often exaggerated because a player was miffed by a verdict.

    How’d you get your Username?

    What are you listening to?

    Otherwise, I’ve been listening to a fair bit of Madeon and Dion Timmer. Carpenter Brut’s more an occasional thing now since it can get a bit heavy to listen to frequently.
  7. I mean I suppose. Personally, I loved Athera and how it centralised roleplay. I’ve always advocated for an ‘interactive’ map. Where the map size is small at the beginning, forcing players to permanently settle around Cloud Temple. Then through world events you can slowly open up more of the map.
  8. Giving everyone land spreads RP thin. It’s why activity has to be moderated. I think the system’s fine to an extent, though I did have concerns with the way the activity was moderated (being purely reliant on numbers), and how harsh the threshold was. Also briefly adding here. Activity was around the same, it was just more centralised which was why RP felt more lively and common. The downtime hours were worse during Athera than what it is now – averaging about ~10 to 15 in Athera, where we average now from ~25 to 35. Anyway I’ll respond properly to this thread a bit later. I saw you address me in an earlier message, and I stand a bit differently in my opinion than I did before. So I’ll plonk that in sometime later today as it’s 1am for me.

    [Your View] Freebuild

    Hey all, With the unveiling of Atlas, we saw the addition of many new systems and features for the community to explore. One of these is freebuild; the immediate ability that allows players to create, build, and destroy outside of permission-locked settlements. We want to ask the community how you would like to see freebuild progress and improve from here. What rules do you believe must or should be put into place to ensure an enjoyable atmosphere for everyone? Should freebuild have its own set of defined raid rules to increase the risk of the wilds? Or perhaps you believe there should be more emphasis on protection. Leave your thoughts below, and remember to be constructive! Provide your own experiences for freebuild during launch, and what you think should be improved. Thank you, Game Moderation. And have a Merry Christmas from the team!

    Kahloola's Event Team Actor application

    -1 I don't normally comment on staff applications because I'm all for people helping out when they have the drive for it, regardless of my opinion. Though I can't support this. I genuinely believe this could cause more harm than good. I won't vouch for any pex abuse as I wasn't around for it, but their attitude alone is enough to make me feel uncomfortable in any environment this player is present in. Since I'm on my phone I'll only leave it brief. If my opinion / experiences are wanted to be expanded upon, hit me up.
  11. I voted no. Tl;dr of what I'll be typing later in Pond's thread: Orcs deserve either a large charter plot with monitored activity for potential nation status, OR nation status immediately. Halfings however are a different story. They are not apart of the core 'descendant' races / the big 4 / whatever (elves, orcs, humans, dwarves). They should only receive a plot or handouts when it is justified or earned. What stops someone from replacing 'halflings' in this context with 'Adunians / half elves' or 'kharajyr', 'hou-zi', etc. Orcs and halflings are extremely different cases here. Stop coupling them in this fiasco.

    Redemption for Incompetence

    It's pretty funny that you're still going on with this attitude that got you in trouble. People would probably take you more seriously if you showed respect. Everyone on here is human, you're no better than anyone else. Though I do agree with you. Let's not derail this thread: it's about the orcs and the duel. So enough with the halfling situation, it's barely relevant to this and is just another attempt to victimize when it isn't necessary. Enough. @Pond Got two more planes to catch. I'll be home in around 18-ish hours. If I'm not asleep by then (or if I find additional time between flights) I'll write up my personal thoughts on the whole thing; as (at the time) both a staff member and sitting on the Dominion council. Got a lot to say on the matter.

    Redemption for Incompetence

    I think you're just trying to cover your reputation here, Wolf. You didn't act as much as you could have in fear of God knows what. Kyle maybe? Ruining a massive event? I'm not sure man. Whatever it is, stop trying to cover it up with this bullshit. I'll make a longer post if this topic stays trending after my flight.
  14. IGN(s): Murlocs Age 19 Timezone AEST / GMT +10 Discord: Jaeden#2734 What map did you join during?: Thales Do you have access to a Microphone? Yes Average Daily Play Time? Fair bit! Have you held any LotC staff position(s) before? If so, for how long?: Event Team Builder - 3 months. Event Team Actor - 4 months. Event Team Manager - 7 months. Magic Team - 6 months. Game Moderator - 1 year 2 months. GM Trainer / Manager - ~6 months. Do you have prior history in any forms of moderation? I was a GM for a fair bit, along with managing the ET for a while. Co-led, administrated, and moderated a few other servers, guilds, communities, etc. Why do you want to join the GM Team?: Just wanting to help out. My time won’t be as much as it used to be, as I’m pursuing my IRL aspirations. However, I’m still interested in making sure the community’s enjoyable for people; as much as I can anyway! I feel like no other reason is needed. Have you applied for this position before and been denied? If so, link the application: Nope. Oh yeah, before anyone asks, I stepped down from NL.

    These things can hit you out of the blue. My mother’s best friend was diagnosed with leukaemia a month and a half ago; it’s not an enjoyable experience, but the battle is worth it for the family, friends, and future you’ll have. You’ll get through it. Have a bloody good one, z3m. Prayers are with you brother.

    A particular druidess, fond of her home within the Loftywoods, hears news of the travelling band of September followers; thus she sends a messenger. “You do not speak for nature nor the Aspects. Come and face me; challenge me. I will show you when nature truly revolts, and not this malformed chaos that your daemon prince wishes to assert.” The druidess waited for any indication from the animal messenger.

    Soul Trees Remastered! Free DLC!

    Soul Trees Remastered! Free DLC!

    imagine unironically using the argument that druidism has too much lore sorry we have ideas, ms word, and a keyboard i guess
  20. The blacklist will remain until January 2nd . I sympathise that it is difficult to lead a group with a pending VB, but it isn’t impossible. Any questions you can approach me on Discord. As an additional note; I will be away from the 18th of December to the 9th of January. When your blacklist expires, either Lumiin or any GM can handle the appeal for you. I’ll be leaving the appeal open until then.

    bye friend (and good luck with military, much respect there)

    [✗] [Server] Senor_TortugaBanAppeal Ban Appeal

    Sorry for getting to this late, had a few things that popped up. As per your ban message, you have no early appeal. You may appeal the indefinite ban on the 25th of this month. Appeal denied.
  23. hello! I think something neat for Christmas, due to our intensive focus on community and community interaction, would be a little ‘present plugin’. Let’s say you have an item you’d like to give to another player. You can hold the item in your hand and type ‘/wrap’. This’ll then turn the item from whatever it was into a wrapped present head item (the ones available in the head shop). Then you can either select it as a ‘random’ present or a ‘specific’ present. If you select random, it’ll send off the present to someone random on the server with a little message that Father Krugsmas delivered a present from X player for you. If you select specific, you can then type in your recipient and it’ll send the present off to the person for you with a similar message. You could even make it so that it holds the item in limbo until Christmas day or when they log in following that date. Though having the plugin work presently instead of holding it might be a bit easier on the coders; not too sure! Either way, just a little idea I had. 👻 Edit: After Joel explained something to me. It could be possible to just have only ‘random’ presents be sent out. If players want to deliver specific presents they can hand it off to someone after wrapping it.
