You know, I thought that this was a great mud. The only thing that fucks it up are the imms. Look at Stryth for an example. He always has his finger up his ass while cursing out other people, and always touting his "holier than thou" attitude. Another example of that is Odoacer. Now that he's an imm, oh my, he thinks that he can do anything he wants. At times, he even interfers with the game.
The one person that you cannot bitch at about the IMMs is Stryth. He's the damn workhorse of the immortals. The guy does it all: coding, immortal-mortal interaction, and even public relationship. And, I don't have a problem with his "attitude". If you're talking about inside the game, he is an immortal. If you're talking outside the game, he is the major workhorse and the guy who gets all the crap. So, I think that his attitude is more than justifiable. People are lucky that he doesn't blow up more often than he does for all the crap he has to deal with.
As for Odoacer, if you're gonna complain about him, then be specific. What do you mean interfere with the game? I'm sure he won't abuse his IMM powers. Are you refering to talking with mortals?
Then, we have the lazy imms. You know, like Diocletian, Denadlyr, and Virgil. Those fuckers are never on. The mud needs the imms to work on the fucking mud, or it ain't going to get better.
Let's see, there are people with lives. I think law school, work, and college, respectively, should all take presidence over a mud. You should be grateful that they've even spent time in the past to set up the foundations of what AR is today.
Kallomar is an exception to all of this. Not only does everything above apply to him, he is just a plain asshole. You try to talk to him, and he shuns you like a mother fucker. That ticks me off.
Now, if he shuns you, maybe it's cuz you're an idiot, or you're acting like an idiot. Cuz, I have never seen his shun away a legitamate question. He was damn patient with the newbies when the mud was being set up. A person who set up the newbie channel specifically to help out the newbies is not a person that shuns you for the heck of it. The only people that I've seen him shun are those who are just plain dumb. So, check your questions, maybe you're asking something that's so obvious or something that's been answered before that he feels it's wasting him time to answer your question.
Zafrin and Sarich, well they're just there. They seem to be working, but shit, for all I know, they're jacking each other off.
And the point of this being? You spreading crap on people whom you have nothing on just to complete the "The only thing that fucks it up are the imms" statement? There's no need for this. If you do have a gripe about them, say it. If you don't, there's no need to spread crap around to those whom you don't have anything on.
Get off your asses imms, and do some real work with this mud. And just because you will have one day of "fun," doesn't mean that you are done for the year. Do a better job around here. God damn.
Well, there's a big underlying point that you're missing with your gripe. How did this mud become a great mud, without the IMMs? Yeah, the players can come, but I figure that the IMMs have to have done a little somethere here and there for the people to come, right? By their results, the IMMs must have done "something".
I'm sorry if you're not satisfied with the rate of progress on this mud. The IMMs here are not in dire of need of ideas to say the truth, cuz I know that there are a lot more things that they have in mind to put in. But, the bottleneck of the progress is the vase amount of coding and painstacking hours of testing and re-testing of new implementations for balance. If you're pointing these limitations out just to bitch at the IMMs, then shut up, or leave, or both. If you truly want to help, then play a worthwhile character, and become an IMM. Right now, the IMMs in AR can use a little help in man-power.
