“Bitcoin Accepted Here
We’ve received many community requests to support Bitcoins for pledge and add-on purchases, so we’re happy to announce that we now accept Bitcoins as a full-payment option for pledges, Add-Ons, and Player Owned Towns!”
- Update of the Avatar #93″
So it appears that Shroud of the Avatar will now accept bitcoin. But they actually wont. They will obviously be using some sort of exchange because there would be no federal regulations in the United States against any issues that pop up with using bitcoin directly. Treasury has a handle on the exchanges themselves. Either way though, the use of bitcoin as a whole will be problematic for most end users and assure that you will lose in one form or another just like every other form of currency ever created.
I also think it is really fucking cute that the twats can now be quoted saying they have received many community requests and can sell this as a service they are doing for us. To make them money. Ha-ha-ha. I see what you did there Dallas. Also, go see my backup page for the “many requests” they received, and then proceeded to delete and remove from the community due to the amount of endless bickering and trolling that comes with fake money . As you would have expected really.
EDIT: Appears they will indeed be using exchanges or “service that converts” as indicated by Chaox.
“We do indeed use a service that converts Bitcoins.”
It will be interesting to see how this plays out, hackable anonymous cash is always a great fucking idea.
And I sure can smell the rain!
I’ve been following this post pretty close since it has Smack created it. Smack has a, nack, for posting in links from other sources talking about Shroud of the Avatar and the ones from MMORPG are oh so fucking toxic. Though everyone on the SotA forum should be aware of what everyone else thinks and is saying about Shroud of the Avatar because there is no wool over most of their eyes.
This post has exploded into 24 pages already and at first it was… Mildly on topic, now it is swinging around like a naked skydiver’s dick. Time till lock, I’d call about 2-6hrs. See the post here: https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/forum/index.php?threads/mmorpg-sota-column-concerns-worthy-of-note.14552/
The reason this has taken a turn for the worse is because there is a user there Adaamhimself who is not holding back any punches. Reminds me of a young, non-banned InsaneMembrane :) He has commented on the disaster of segregation which is being carried seemingly from life into a kickstarter, into a forum, and ultimatly into a game. It really is some kind of bullshit. I myself tried to champion that on several occasions, even once in a semi-logical and nice like way in this SotA post of mine: https://www.shroudoftheavatar.com/forum/index.php?threads/sota-civil-rights-and-lone-wolves-act-of-2013.1431/
Anywhatswhosit the reason why I write this quick post before I have to backup, save, and post this topic into my backup area is because of the following post by what is quite obviously one of the biggest cock holsters there ever was. I’m not quite sure how this guy has escaped my eyes at this point, clearly a full post review will be in order now. Check this out, hope you’ve taken a piss recently because if you haven’t and have a weak bladder, you’re about to piss yourself.
“I would have to disagree – some discussions can not be had in public forum – it has nothing to do with keeping folks out – it has more to do with maintaining a certain level of input
Not everyone can separate themselves from their inner “gamer” and discuss a topic from a “Design” perspective”
Please excuse me while I lllooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooolll. There are two possibilities here for Margard, both of them equally as fucking stupid as that statement just was. One, Margard is a member of the Dev+ forum and is banking on the fact that everyone else is clueless to the fact that the Dev+ forums are a total fucking sham and wants to put off the smell of importance. I dunno, maybe he is trolling for some sweet gamer girl ass in there? Or Two, Margard is not a Dev+ member and has not a clue how bloody useless the Dev+ forum is and is basing his concept of it off the Portalarium description of it during Kickstarter.
That statement right there, makes me want to dump the entire Dev+ forum into my backup area and let everyone read it. FFS, nothing happens there. In fact, it is even worse than Adaamhimself points out, because as I’ve already covered the Dev+ forum was sold as something nice and has turned out to not be just a total lie, but brings a lot of shame and stigma with it attached to Dev+ users. THEN Portalarium begins to hand pick members of the community to run player based oppression rings like the Scribes/Scholars fucking whatever of Novia, College of Arms, Forum Moderators, and for personal interviews to other sites. Lube right up and bend over, it will be easier that way folks.
Either way, it is pretty depressing! I’ll have more on this later, I am positive, so until then stay frosty girls!
God damn it. I take a single night off from all this and look what happens. It appears that at least two separate threads have been merged, wrongly, again. They were:
SPO and SP Offline – Backup File Here
Too much compromises focus on MMORPG – Backup v1 File Here – Backup v2 File Here
So clearly, they will merge anything even remotely related right? I mean in the case above, SPO offline was about game play modes and Too much compromises was about where the focus of the devs seems to be a this point in time. Wrong. They are so clearly not related, yet merged anyway. Koldar is the one who has done this, and he has done this in the past. I doubt the little douche could have an original thought so I’d have to guess FireLotus instructed him to do so? Don’t know, whole thing makes no sense.
Here is the thing. I’m a PvP player, a PK, so I could really give a fuck about Single Player offline or having the Devs focus on shit like cooking food… BUT I kind of feel for them at this point in time. Why? Well there are a hundred threads about PvP and they aren’t being merged. The fucking sloppy twats always talking about PvP and saying the same thing over and over and over don’t seem to be punished as quickly or as confusingly as the PvE players do. As indicated in this exchange.
Ok, so the two posts above were merged. I have their orig content well documented I believe. What I missed was the little explosion the forum had last night before it was locked and cleaned. From the comments that are left behind I can tell it would have been good, damn! :) If anyone can clue me in as to what happened please reply here or Blow The Whistle.
Smarten up guys. Stop merging shit like this, it is too late when one post has 6 pages and the other post has 15 or 16 pages to merge shit. Lock it and refer on, Moderating For Complete Fucking Idiots.
I try to keep up on things, and from what I know about Captain Jack Sparrow is that he is usually a pretty funny bro. But in reading the locked threads I submitted to my backup area on this blog something clearly got up his cannon pipe!
It appears most of this started in the “too much compromises focus on MMORPG” thread which, I had to backup because it was cleaned out, when Vyrin(previously Vyrinor or something?) commented back to Ristra with the following which starts at Post #263 in the backed up forum thread linked above:
@Ristra: It’s a little hard to follow your line of questioning. Can you state clearly what you’re aiming for?
Captain Jack Sparrow then followed on:
Captain Jack would like to echo that point. Rista seems to enjoy jumping in, but Captain Jack is never quite sure which side you are on. You have to pick a side.
Captain Jack proposes a new feature on the forum. Tabs on each person’s profile where they can easily customise. Have a tab for PvE, for PvP, for SPO, for Companions, for Full Loot, whatever you want. Then fill them out with clar and concise thoughts from your brain into them, that way everyone can go see what everyone wants for themselves and it might save us all these round robin conversations where you talky types just kind of spam out words.
Stupidly Ristra replies with:
I pick side…… neutral.
I look at things from the Dev’s perspective. My side is not important, if it was I would break out my notes and put a much more detail design doc worth of systems.
If anything, I am more interested in seeing why people take a hard stance on positions they have vs positions the Dev’s have.
Ok I’ll pause here to comment, that would trigger my Insane gene also. I mean what the fuck did Ristra just say? I’ll translate:
“I am a fucking genius, I’m too good for you cock suckers, you don’t deserve my vast amounts of detailed information. Instead, I’m going to jump in the middle of the arguments and use my mothafuckin genius mind to fuck with both sides of it.”
Thats about the jist of it. Anyhooz Captain Jack Sparrow then replied:
Bhahahahahahahaha. Neutral. Captain Jack thinks it is offensive that you push the devs issues for them and have no mind or thoughts of your own. Are you looking for a job in Austin?
This isn’t a Psych study, and Captain Jack thinks that you should be asked to stop moderating between the two sides and let them work it out for themselves.
Captain Jack is only being honest here, how many times has either side thanked you for stepping into their discussions with your neutral stance to confuse and compund the matter? It isn’t really required, but I’m not going to ask you to stop because that shouldn’t come from Captain Jack.
All in all a good reply, but it got the topic locked and the post was deleted. I’ll bet if Jack didn’t put in the laughing at the beginning then the post would have stuck because it seems even headed enough to me from that point forward. The point is valid. If you’ve got nothing to add Ristra, shut the fuck up. Ok, here comes the FUNNY part in Ristra’s reply:
Would you like to check my PMs? Or maybe the Like button covers that?
LOLZORZ! That is kind of why this all caught my attention aside from the topic itself being locked. Ristra did it. Likes. Likes/Upvotes/Downvotes are the plague of civilized conversation, they are for fucking useless attention whores. Ristra is no different. This is funny, lets take a look at the ratio of posts per likes on the forum at the time of this posting between Captain Jack Sparrow and Ristra:
Ristra’s likes per post ratio:
Jacks’s likes per post ratio:
Lul, Ristra you fucking nub bait. That failed if anyone cared to do the math.
Jack 1 – Ristra 0
What is the lesson? Moderators should probably get on top of Ristra’s trolling, because that is really what it is.
There are plenty more comments though around the forum from Jack either just before or after that point, read on by expanding below as he even takes shots at Lord British!
Yeah, usually when FireLotus posts that is me. My eyes light up, I give myself a big smile and I start to drool over the work I am gleefully about to take part in. Lawls, and this time… Is no different!
So, there is a new forum rule everyone. They must be taking my advice after repeated examples that further and more stringent rules are required to keep the panties on all the fuckin SotA forum boners. Right? Nawwww fuck that, take a look.
“Two changes were made to the forum rules today, along with some slight reorganization. The following rule was added, and the final sentence was moved to it from the Spam rule:
Badger Not thy Kingdom:
Harassment or bullying of any type is not welcome in this community. We are here to encourage a collaborative spirit, not to shut it down by repeatedly invalidating others opinions or feedback. Consistently strong-arming others into the same discussion, or repeatedly posting the same ideas/opinions in multiple threads/forums also falls under this category and should be avoided.
Also, the number of links one is allowed to have in a Forum Signature was increased to ONE or TWO.“
That about sums up the clarity we come to expect from the forum doesn’t it! Links were increased to ONE or TWO lol. Pick a god damn bottom line, make it very clear, and then stick to it! As for the rule itself, Bager Not thy Kingdom, well that can be applied to just about anything you want so good job in creating another reason for you guys to lock threads up. Though I may have to hire help soon to keep up with you bitches!
The PvP & Death Megathread now joins a host of others in oblivion as all of it’s 174 pages and 3,477 posts are now in jeopardy. Since my last dump of the SotA forum the post count has dropped so it wont be long until this is totally fucked up by the Moderators. You can find this topic backed up here in full for your reading pleasure! http://insanemembrain.wordpress.com/sota-fourm-backups/
Let me show you how this works kiddos.
1. Dev posts a fucking wall of text.
2. Users get a massive boner and attempt to respond to a giant wall of text which is too big to respond to.
3. Users get a raging boner and attempt to argue points between themselves based on now 8th hand information.
4. Moderators don’t bother to upkeep or keep people on topic.
5. Thread gets locked/cleaned/deleted because it gets “too big to moderate.”
6. Portalarium can now ignore everything in thread and pretend it and everything within never existed.
