A Note of Appreciation
« on: December 18, 2013, 05:18:10 PM »
I'm tired of hearing ungrateful *expletives deleted* attack the imms on this mud.   Aristox and Hoss, as well as all of the other builders/etc I don't know by name, are doing amazing work managing this mud for no pay.  They put in part-time job hours or more working for a game whose most vocal players offer them little but harrassment and abuse. 

That's not only unfortunate, it's directly against the best interests of a game we all love.  What's more, it's inaccurate to say that they are doing anything but an exceptional job.  Here's why.

In the last few years, we've had a new class, some of the best zone revamps and new zones I've ever had the pleasure of reading and frustration of figuring out, and a focus on making this game fair for those who follow the rules which I have *never* seen in over two decades of playing Arctic.   I want to launch into a diatribe against those *many, many insults deleted* who choose to cheat, and then bitch about having to deal with strict oversight as a result of their adult choices, but I've said it all before. 

Hoss, 'Stox, all the other gentlemen who toil behind the scenes to give us Deep Mines, new Daargard, and many other new zones I haven't even had the pleasure of seeing yet...  from an old player, you have nothing but my sincere thanks for doing a job I wouldn't have the patience or restraint to do.

You should learn names and the command(s), there's really no excuse to not know who created the zones you play so you can dole out credit appropriately:


help area dargaard
help area creator sanjuro

Creator: Sanjuro

  Sahuagin Reef (mid) - Revamp Creator
  Dargonesti (high) - Revamp Creator
  Conclave Tests (low) - Creator
  Blood Shoal (high) - Creator

I understand the commands. I was simply  trying to bang out a quick note of appreciation after being frustrated by the repeated insults to our volunteer staff... not so much worried about proper MLA citation.  :)

Also, the builders are very rarely on the receiving end of the fecal storm Hoss and Aristox seem to catch every time they perform a bit of housecleaning.

Actually knew Sanjuro wrote Daargard, too. :)  Never been to Shoal, sadly.

Odd side note:  I still cite Oligo's First Law in groups.   (Bashing prevents bashing. :)

Oligo's response to your thank you is why people don't hand them out. 

Also, the help area creator X only exists to imms.

Thanks.

It is good to hear stuff like this every now and again.  Sometimes the excrement gets too high and you can use someone with a shovel.

Can you shovel shit once it hardens? Or do you need to pick at it first?

Thanks, Jason. I hope you have the opportunity to die (gloriously) in Shoal some day.
