I don't want things changed about ideas and polls. I want them consistent. Better wording would probably have helped, but unless you were prepared to go and recall the idea if the ratios changed, all that matters is once you forwarded it my vote was no longer relevant if I chose to exercise it. I was waffling about voting and didn't bother because it no longer mattered. I might be the only one, I might not. This really isn't about me or you. Players (especially those of us putting down money) will expect that things are done according to the way they are described. Hopefully we can both learn from this and move on.Ashram,
I will answer you for clarity sake. I did not close voting and should have been more precise in the wording that I was forwarding to The CM; the Idea as approved based on the expected outcome. The vote disparity indicated the idea would pass. I may have jumped the gun on passing it along based on the limited opportunities to get ideas presented in November.
I did not change the process and advised explicitly that the issue of changing it should be brought to the New CM.
As for who voted, any player that has or creates a forum account can vote, including FS mates who personally benefit from the idea being voted on. Just as you can have your FS mates come to vote No.
Again, if you wish to suggest a change in the rules or procedures, please get in touch with the CM. As the New CM is from the EN server side, there may be a perspective difference on the rules and procedures.
Elvenstats was about helping like-minded players find each other, including complementary boosts (which mattered then)If the tournament stats are irrelevant, why did you participate in testing Elvenstats?
Actually, we don't. We will get 10 chests by accident even if half of our members are absent, and the difference between 10 chests and however many we get with a full team is negligible, which has been my point the whole time.Are you saying that your FS doesn't look at a player's tournament performance as one of the criteria for joining you?
Feel free to disenchant some of the rewards if they are too plentiful in the #1 fellowshipabout what I would get and if I think it is reasonable or not and with all the prizes I am already getting from the tournament, I don't think it is reasonable.
See that I think is a terrible idea as it simply makes things easier for everyone with no increased effort.I am surely not kidding, I don't think the top needs even more prizes, put it somewhere where "everyone" can get it.
Oh my... if things here become like those forums I take back anything I said about liking the change in voting.As the New CM is from the EN server side, there may be a perspective difference on the rules and procedures.
Did someone say muffins ?There are not enough blueberry muffins in the world to save us if it turns into those forums.
She is a CM and has much more access and jurisdiction than a FM, which makes a huge difference. Nothing here automatically goes anywhere. Without someone championing our ideas that has REAL access to devs, we're just talking amongst ourselves. It wouldn't matter what anyone proposes for a game improvement. Everything would just stay here on the forums and never budge no matter which way you vote. Without a CM fighting for our voices to be heard, the forum is just be an echo chamber of mostly people complainingHelya was a good FM, but the forums weren't exactly terrible before, too....
Sorry for Typing FM instead of CM. The fact remains things were not terrible in the half decade before Helya became CM.She is a CM and has much more access and jurisdiction than a FM, which makes a huge difference.

Got it. There were just no foundations until Helya laid them. Possibly we simply don't understand the word "foundations" to mean the same thing.
Buddy was not present at the incident you speak of! It was some drunk pink dragon with small hands that burned the place down. The Banshee is a colleague so Buddy was probably smart enough to not get involved.*sigh*
If you call Crackie's buddy burning down houses 'under control'.
It concluded with the mess getting cleaned up with a click of a button, so I would argue it was always under control. No magic accomplish button was even involved either. We clearly didn’t make a big enough mess.There is only so much you can do to control an agent of chaos like that...and no, I'm not talking about Buddy
