people whining to Immorts
Posted by Alvis on 01/20
I have noticed that most of the note posted anywhere tend to be complaints
to the immorts. Every once in a while there is a little something that do
deos congradulate the immorts on what good job they realy do around here,
fbut far to musc is negativly aimed at the immorts. Every once in a while
an Immort gets fed up with and makes a comment about it. The Immorts post
position is easy to understand, I mean if I did a lot of free work and peo
people complained, I would wanna do it either. Well to the immorts I say
"Good job, thank you for all of the effort and time you have put into this
game". I think that we as players to often put our complements in the for
form of complaints to the immorts, If this mud was a screwed up as my of
us are led to believe, noone would play here. So I am saying thanks and a
asking everyone else to say thanks in a more obvious fashion.

Agreed. The mud is actually
the best ive seen so far. Its a mud
where the things that
are so great about it, cant help but
highlight the occasional fault. The imms do work hard to get the
bad stuff out, and have an oft thankless job.
I try drastically to stop complainig (i do, really) And
stick yo making suggestions.

I would wish to applaud Alvis on what he says.
This mud is the very best I have ever seen,
and the imms are working hard to make it even better,
for free remember? Most of what they have done is
really great, just look at Solomon's list above!
If they do an occasional misstake, so what? They are
human too! And just saying they never listen only
shows that you are not following with what happens.
If they do not listen to your particular suggestion
at the time you put it forth, it certainly not the
same as saying they never listen.
Oh well, enough rambling ;)

I agree with all of the aforementioned posts, but one must also look at
it from some of the players' point of views. I've only been on this MUD
for a month, and I'd have to say besides the (IMO) fallacious death
penalties, it's a pretty good MUD. But fixing problems and getting
complained at have been the jobs of immortals on every MUD I've ever
been on. If the ones here didn't expect at least as many compaints and
requests as they get now when they became immorts, the must have not been
looking at immortalism very realistically. Sure, the players should not
complain and whine as much as they do, but they DO, regardless, and
probably aren't going to subside in doing so either. So get used to it,
immortals! No offense was meant by this, it just seems to me the way
that things are going to be.

Personally, I expect complaints and even some whining. As you say, it's
part of the job I and the other imms volunteered for. My comments in the
post above weren't to slam those people who complain, or even those
people who whine -- it was merely to remind people that we DO listen.

I have to agree with Alvis. I've been here a little over 2 years,
which to some may seem like a long time, but I'm constantly
made feel like a newbie by people who have been here even longer
than that. And what has kept these people playing the same, but
always changing, mud for that long?

Ok ok, I appologize for my nagging :)
But it's hard not to nag :)
I personally have seen lots of system changes since I've been
on and _no_ I am not the best knowledged old legender to complain
about stuff.. but hey :) It's kind of a tiny bit boring to see
_some_ of the stuff change over and over... :) -giggles-
I know it's for the muds' own good... so I'll try to to squelch my
nagging volume to 0 :) But not easy :)
