  1. I could get behind these ideas as a basis for a Rite-casting rehaul
  2. why yes, give the masses a target to focus their frustration at, and maybe hate mail and harassment too. Great idea /end sarcasm
  3. removing the ability to cast a Rite if you have already done so potentially leads to a situation where there's no priest able to cast. Once this rush (ok, its a very slow and bottlenecked rush of existing priests already with the required faith and channeling, but you get the idea) to do it for journal goals is over and there's no one waiting in the wings ready to cast - what then? Back to them being as rare as hen's teeth. Especially given the current wurm population. Also, maybe when someone offers to let you join in casting with them, you don't turn around and tell them you plan on doing it later and they're not welcome as there's no room. People had their chance today and cut of their noses to spite their face. If people were more relaxed, flexible and less uptight about getting in on a Rite, there would probably be a lot less sniping. Changing the journal goal makes most sense, to me.
  4. Bumpity helpful for those without the hours to spare roaming indy...
  5. Huge +1, it makes all sorts of sense. Right now I just don't bother with books as a thing, for just this reason - it would be a waste of time.
  6. thanks for input. Sadly on this occasion I subsequently both left the server after my attempts and posting here (so wouldn't have got credit anyway) and ended up not able to log in for ages so hit max sb. I don't make a habit of recording my karma both before and after every mission related activity, would waste half my time doing so, and nor was I keeping track of journal goal progress. Guess I will do so in future. Basically i personally cannot tell whether I would have received credit or not, but can say for certain something was bugged and not working as it should.
  7. this is not how these normally work nowadays, no. Ending sb is not the issue here (though may prove to also be bugged, I dunno). Also, if it only registers someone's participation once all 17 participants are done, how is it tracking at 48% complete both before and after I did the dance? I did the ritual, but the mission did not progress. ETA: Mission now at 54%, but whether that's from me or someone else, I do not know. My own mission progress bars still don't show I did anything.
  8. Mission on Exo: Name: Everyone: Libila's shining enigma of humility Creator: System Started: 11/05/19 01:41 Progress: 48.058823% Expires: 18/05/19 01:41 Difficulty: 7 / 7 Description: Libila commands 17 of you to perform the Ritual of fog at the Winters Challenge using a blue common wool hat. It is located in the south regions. Rewards: 30m sleep bonus for each participant upon completion of this mission as well as 3500 karma split between participants with 315m extra sleep bonus split between nearby players upon completion (30m max each) [10:57:07] You start to perform the Ritual of fog. [10:57:42] Your ritual is complete. Mission progress did not change, and I didn't get any notice of my contribution. I did get the weird music, but no epic helper pop up. I tried on horse, off horse, with a different blue common wool hat, standing on a different tile, just incase, but no joy.
  9. I did a ritual mission on Exo a couple of days ago, and had it show my 7% personal contribution as well as the mission's progress. After server restart, only the mission progress was shown, and no indication it was me that had done the 7%. Went off server the following day, so not sure what will happen now if I return before mission is done (if it's still not done). Will report back later with more details.
  10. If I inadvertantly hijack your response, Sindusk, I apologise. I am just glad someone who can not easily be shut down has responded to this. I can appreciate Enki's investigation, and the tough position he is in. I respect that all Retro's actions have been within the official lines. However, there is still an element of bias that cannot be seen without reviewing similar circumstances involving unrelated players. Anyone who takes an unbranded horse off-deed would have been told "tough" by a GM. Staff members were told not to request uncraftable items - so why was Retrograde gifted one? An amazingly rapid promotion for someone Retro is close to not to mention more I cannot put in a public post If Enki were a scientist, his letter would have been pulled apart for poor method already.
  11. +1 Especially love the drunken fights. Can we also make it possible to entice guards out of mines with a doughnut?
  12. The problem is when what you are selling to earn kingdom funds turns out to be a pig in a poke. While I may be delighted to find I'm the new owner of a kitty, I'd still be lacking a pig to fatten up for winter, and suffering from violent allergies. Even now, as of this post it is still the original gold/beige/whatever you see it as items being advertised in the first post. I get that only Vom can edit that, but no mention was made, no warning anywhere I can find to let people know their belongings would change so drastically. Doing so would have allowed those who found the new design really not to their taste to sell on or learn to live with the new look whilst drumming up new business from those excited by purpleness and stopping people like me bitching about it at every available opportunity. You know, common courtesy. I get that pmk stuff can change at any time, and I'm glad you have the new look you want, but a simple heads up would have avoided a lot of the complaints.
  13. Got the recipe on Exo, did some server hopping on the 26th, and was on Exo at the time of the hotfix on the 28th. I've been awol so not sure which date the recipe went missing ( and once again too lazy to check bug forum etc. for info), as the 26th was the first I've logged in this year.
  14. I am one of they (in game name the same), but don't think I can provide any helpful information for troubleshooting. All I remember is the long wait to find a second copy of the recipe after I gave my first find to a friend. I've never made the recipe. OK, after searching logs I found actual info: Logging started 2017-06-01 [12:27:29] Welcome back, Grumpled! The Exodus server has been waiting for you. [12:36:15] You finish adding the billy sheep gruff stew into your cookbook, just in time, as the recipe has decayed away. but incase it proves relevant there was a maintenance restart shortly after adding the recipe: [12:50:57] 10 seconds to shutdown. [12:50:57] Reason: Maintenance restart and update. Up to thirty minutes downtime. Patch notes:
  15. Oh, a nautical compass. Good idea. But if it's just our regular compass working on boats, I'm happy with whatever. Just let me figure out whether I'm veering too far off heading that I'll end up at server border without having to disembark.
