Re: Next Round 0.8n Dates

Sheesh, took you long enough mate, bet real life came in and gave you a good whacking, therefore not allowing you to do your job right?  Anyway glad to finally hear of a new round, this time D*Haran Empire will get rolling early and smoothly, can't wait.

Re: Next Round 0.8n Dates

Sign-ups are now open.

Yes, real life is busy.  Working two jobs leaves little time for other things.

Re: Next Round 0.8n Dates

Wow, didn't realize you were working two jobs....that's always tough.  And I thought 1 job was too much...

Re: Next Round 0.8n Dates

Postal, would it be possible to give control of the rounds over to some player that you trust? Because while people still enjoy playing, so many fall away with these long dry periods. And if you aren't able to update MotD and handle rounds, I'm sure someone here would be glad to do it.

Re: Next Round 0.8n Dates

Hmm, and would this so called player happen to be you biggre, seeing as you are the only main long standing member still playing?  Not that I don't think it is a good idea, I completely agree with the statement.  And you are right any of us would be glad to do it.  Oh by the way for anyone interested, The D*Haran Empire is looking for competent members to join us, there are 5 spots still unreserved.  Contact The Dark Knight in game to reserve yours today!

Re: Next Round 0.8n Dates

I was in no way implying that I should be that person. I don't know what Postal or any of the other devs think of me and I'm not part of the official community which I'm sure there's someone else in the community that's still around or whatever. The main message was, we understand personal issues are more important than the game and we'd still like to play so I'd like to see something that could let both work.

Re: Next Round 0.8n Dates

Or, you could find someone that's been playing the game for a long time that doesn't have any ties to the current alliances that would have plenty of time to login and maintain the rounds.. I volunteer smile

not.

Dark Knight, advertising your alliance in announcements is not appropriate.

Re: Next Round 0.8n Dates

Yes well, it may not be appropriate, but neither is you coming to post one time after a long layoff and bash another person who is playing the game, and call his actions inappropriate.  And you are always advertising your alliance if it still exists by putting it in your signature, which is the same basic thing as me typing my particular alliance in one of my posts.
But I realize you are much more experienced in these types of manners, so I will try to avoid doing such in the future.  Thanks for informing me.

I wasn't bashing you... I was just saying.

Re: Next Round 0.8n Dates

Sorry, I get a bit jumpy at times, its just the way you came off in your typing.  Sorry for freaking out...had a long day.

Re: Next Round 0.8n Dates

As long as the player only had control over starting the rounds and ending them, it hopefully wouldn't be a problem. It would be fairly obvious if they were starting/stopping the game.

Postal, how hard would it be to throw a code in so that after x ticks the round automatically ends?
