First frost this morning.  Brrr.  Rabbits are feisty and the chickens don't give a damn.

General Discussion / Re: Release Note discussion!

People in power have a special responsibility to watch what they say.

A joke from a coworker is different from one from your boss. In the same way that a comment expressing sexual interest is different from a guy in a bar as opposed from the cop who just pulled you over.

Being a volunteer here changes nothing. It's still a position of power over people, if they still wish to play the game. They decide they don't want to play anymore, your power over them vanishes completely.

While Seidhr has a decent reputation for being friendly (at least with me), Armageddon staff IN GENERAL are known for being dicks. You can argue that is all in the past with past staff if you want, but you can't change the fact that there's a lot of negative reviews on TMC stating that and AN ENTIRE FORUM which comes up first in the Google search with thread after thread discussing Arm staff dickery and providing examples. So real or perceived, the impression is out there and you can't reel it back in.

Go read the reviews on TMC and try to visualize the new player who has read those reviews but then decided to give the game a try anyway stumbling across these "joking" posts. It's going to validate everything negative they've heard before they ever get a chance to see you for a good guy and they're going to leave.

and i was having fun watching people get mad because someone wanted to make a little joke.

damnit.

back to our regularly scheduled release notes discussion.

The time for levity is, typically, not in the middle of someone feeling persecuted or attacked. Whether the persecution or attacks are real are irrelevant.

I'm interested to see where this ends up, as the game has a history of removing options now, for the promise of more options later, but later takes years. Everything done for a good reason, but staff tend to jump the gun to try and revitalize discussion and interest in the game, and in so doing alienate and, despite the good humor intended, ridicule their playerbase.

Maybe the guild revamp will be cool! I made a warrior 2 years ago because I heard there was a guild revamp coming. Now you're taking away options in the promise that the revamp REALLY IS COMING. I feel like we may see Half-Life 3 first.

Lets remove all the sand too. It's coarse and rough, and gets everywhere.

If you want to be a dickhole, might I recommend the "Love is War" thread, with Hatsune Miku

How about just removing the completely unplayable novision condition that comes with the combination of darkness and storms, so you would have something to do when stuck outside in the dark.
