  1. Xanadu Lag

    Being a pretty large server with a fairly decent amount of players (200+), mixed with the fact that the server equipment is not top-notch, means that Xanadu is prone to random fits of lag. The servers should step up their game and get an upgrade
  2. They don't get paid for points. You get points when you answer a question, and you lose them when you ask one.
  3. Yep. I had a YA account. And it got banned two years ago. For two years, I've been sending appeals to the Yahoo team and guess what? No reply. But what did I do to deserve a permaban? Let's find out: So, I was a level 4 user, and I usually answered psychologically-related questions. I was pretty good at what I did, and I gained quite a lot of points from my answers. I felt like a psychologist, sort of! Everything was going so well until I asked a question about sexual health. Of course, this was asked in an appropriate manner, without the use of any obscenities or vulgar language. I got quite a few good responses and the next day... Suspended. "Your post violated the community guidelines", they said... "It was reported by trusted members of our community", they said. Well? That's complete BS. The true reason I got banned is the trolltage. This is no joke, Yahoo Answers is LITERALLY a troll breeding ground. If you start to collect points and level up, the higher-ups will notice you, report you with their many alts and get you suspended for life. I tried sending many appeals to YA Customer Support, but I always received automated messages. This is frustrating and unacceptable, because it's complete sh*t when all of your messages are being read by a robot. I doubt that there is any human effing being reading my appeals. And yet again, I have sent ANOTHER appeal to them. Of course, it'll get denied again and I'll get the same crap from the robot... And that's all it takes to get you banned: 1 "TRUSTED" REPORT! What YA needs is a new system... It's so easy to get to level 7 (provided that you don't get permabanned till then) and report other users. It sucks and it's gay. And what's even more frustrating is that every single time I try to make the YA Customer Support Team see logic, they reply (considering a human ever steps in) with the exact same violation-of-the-guidelines trash talk. It's like talking to a 3 year old, the kid will never listen to you. And since the person is supposed to help you (that's their job, duh), it's even more frustrating! If I'm going to get one more response like this, I'm going to bash my head against a wall. So, fellow Wurmians, have you had a YA account get permabanned? What was your level, and what was the cause?
  4. Yes, every sandbox game in this world has political ideas incorporated into its' gameplay. For example, we'll start with Wurm. First, let us define socialism a bit: it's a sort of democracy, only that you're not allowed to benefit from personal gain. In other words, if you find the Master Ring, you don't keep it for yourself. You share it with your friends! Sorry, Sauron, you're missing out on this one. I asked a lot of kids from my school about socialism. They'd answer back with stuff like communism and they'd blabber about dictatorships, executions and political prisons (general ignorant comments on the matter). Do not confuse socialism with communism, the latter is a radicalized doctrine of the former. Anyways, in a factions server on Minecraft, our group was made of little children, me being the only teen in the faction. I suggested we practice socialism. Bad idea, they ended up labeling me a fascist and they ganged on me. RIP diamond armor (but what can you expect from a bunch of dumb 9 year-olds?). Back to the idea, this very game practices socialism. People band together in communities (AKA deeds) and work together for the greater good. Did you find a gold ore? Too bad, you're gonna share it with the rest of your villagers. Mayor elections? Sure, they'll happen. Guard duty (Epic cluster only)? Sure, why not take up arms and serve your deed with an MMO-ish patriotism? Anyways, you can't really have a capitalist democracy in your village (capitalism, as Marx characterized it, is defined as a democracy with fierce market competition, only that Marx hates capitalism. Read his books, he's got very solid points, and the only things you'll fight for money in this game are the mobs). But then, of course, you also have those dark, shady players that will take you under your wing, wait until you get a lot of valuable stuff, and then they'll force you to work off your debt or they'll kick you out into the wild. Happened to a cousin of mine a few years ago, he was in a village on the Epic cluster. They gave him the most soul-destroying task in the entire game: brick making. 500 bricks a day, they said. Of course, that was impossible to accomplish, so he eventually got booted. PS: For those that are still skeptical about socialism in Wurm, check out the community farms that each village has. During the time of the USSR, there were common farms (Kolhoz, I believe it is written).
  5. Well actually, regarding ad 1, yeah, that brings back some faint memories. I remember wandering the roads in Independence. Tons of abandoned houses, canals, shacks and so on. A lot of barren hills here and there. And thanks for the tip on the mob density. I'll be looking for a settlement in the south, then. If my parents agree to get me a motherload of coin in my coffers, I'll set off to the north and build a nice little settlement ).
  6. Well, I've been playing Wurm for about 2 years. I never really learned anything from these years, you know, because of the fact that every time I'd venture away into the wide blue yonder to build myself a nice house, a bear would come and eat me. Or a troll. Or a giant scorpion. Anyways, since inactive accounts get deleted after 3 months, that's been a real eff-up for me. My parents didn't allow me to play on my PC this year, and I will only be able to enter this wonderful game again after the 26th of June. I think I'm actually gonna buy some virtual money and some premium time. But anyways, let's cut to the point. I always saw myself as some big landlord that owns a splendid port... I see a wide bay, next to the sea. I see grand ships with large sails, behemoths waiting to sail the seven seas. I see stone houses, paved streets and many lamps with magnificent colours. I see a colossus, a monument to the founders of this jewel of a town. But that is merely a dream, and it will take months of hard work, blood and tears and sweat. And a lot of coin, too. I don't really want somebody to pity me, and I don't want to get a lot of money or a deed to such a big city, but I'd like to find that player, that one special player, that will always stick with me and help me build a nice little town in the middle of nowhere. Ah, that would be dandy... PS: Also have a few questions, I've been out for a very long time now. 1) Is Xanadu still wild? I remember that they said it's a big place. If it's still wild and remote, I'd like to set up a little town with a good buddy and pave roads between towns, you know, to develop the infrastructure. 2) Would the new Elevation server be better to colonize? 3) Can somebody please help me make my first good steps, like learning how to properly do stuff (and fight off wild animals?). Cheers, all!
  7. With the release of the Crius expansion, I find the EVE crafting engine to be more... refined than before. It's pretty fun to use too.
  8. Hey there, Wurmians. After a long time of playing EVE Online, I have returned to Wurm. I took a pretty long break because of two reasons: 1) A really annoying glitch that would make my client freeze if I even dared to move my mouse, is it fixed by the way? 2) Got kicked for no reason by my deed's mayor > I really find this game extremely difficult to play but I am enjoying it pretty much. However, I am mostly disturbed by the lack of players in-game. So even if I have Mt. Everest made of dirt waiting by my harbor, no buyers would exist. Is there any way to promote this game, so we could get more players? Now I just wanted to ask you all some questions about Xanadu: 1) How is Xanadu recently? 2) Have roads finally been paved? 3) Has the number of coastal towns multiplied? 4) Does the inland of Xanadu still remain unoccupied? Edit: Mordred you meanie, why the hell did you kick me?
  9. I am really close to stop playing Wurm due to a problem that I am experiencing with my client, and how I am not getting any solid assistance from the communtiy or staff members. Whenever I play Wurm, my client periodically crashes every 3 minutes, whether I move in a direction or (especially) when I use my mouse. This is really getting on my nerves, and it's also annoying how I am not getting any help from anybody.
  10. I have went to the manual download section and installed 64bit java (my OS is 64 bit) for at least 3 times.
  11. I am sorry, but I see myself forced to post this topic here because nobody is willing to answer my technical difficulties question. When I start playing Wurm, if I move my mouse, my game freezes. Then, a message appears. It says "Java Binary Platform has stopped working". Shortly after the game crashes. I urgently need help on this matter because I have a paving job to complete on Xanadu for a guy. Please, help me!
  12. Oh, and it only gets better. The client frequently freezes and it says that Wurm is not responding.
  13. Hey. I went on Wurm today, and it read "Unable to launch application".

  14. I'm currently living in a village called Imre, located at P22 next to a bay. Me and the owner of the deed have agreed to naming the bay "Blackwater Bay". Please update.
