so far since the changes, I have gotten a kind smile
and that god awful chandolier. I'm not sure who put
these things in the machine to begin with, but I'd like
to just say that these things pretty well suck (no offense
to whoever made them). We need more things that can be
used in more than one slot, for example - the bleeping
Tamagochi(TM). That is the best premade string I have ever
seen, and I suggest that more things like that be placed
in the machine and the junk taken out.
Oh and one other thing, lets put some color in some of these
things, maybe then it wouldn't be so bad. Instead of seeing
fifty dynamite sticks, you would see a red one, a green one, etc...
maybe even put in a limited amount of multicolors.
(just a thought)

Well, personally I thought that the tamagotchi was a really
lame string to get. :P No matter what is in there some people
are going to like and dislike each thing.
PS - I have to wonder tho, who could find an use for a chandolier??

Any responses about the prize machine can be directed to me, since
I put the items in. I've gotten a wide range of opinions on
every single item I've ever put in there, despite the fact that
most of the items are based entirely on player suggestions. I
am sick and tired of the complaints, and frankly, hurt
and offended by the fact that people are so extremely
It's a prize machine. It's not an RP machine, it's not a
'something you've always wanted machine' -- it's luck,
chance, sometimes you get something good and sometimes you
get something you can't stand. Like any other machine you
put a token into.
I'm more than willing to change items regularly. In fact, I try to
change them at least every month, and more often if the
randoms are messed up. But really, what kind of reaction do
you expect from me when you tell me I suck? You think I'll run
right out there and make a lot of changes just so you won't say
that again? Give me a break. Suggestions are great, but insults do
nothing but discourage me.
As for uses of the chandelier. I had thought that people might
find it fun as a light source, bobbing above their heads. I also
thought it would be a nice thing to hold on to, tuck away for
a while, and then use in a house. After all, there's not a whole
lot of loose furniture floating around the mud.

Let me clarify my previous post -- you didn't say that I specifically
suck. You said my work sucks, but no offense.
Well, I'm here to tell you that it doesn't work that way. My work
is a reflection of my self. The ideas go from inside my head to
my fingers on the keyboard. I hear complaints day in and day out
about how this sucks and that sucks. I'm not telling you to like it,
I'm telling you to find some other way to handle the fact that you
don't always get what you want by saying that it all sucks.
I'm sure that I'll get yelled at for being too harsh, but I'm not
the cosmic pushover that some people take me for. I'll only take so
much insult and negativity before I tell you it's enough. And as
far as the prize machine goes, this is enough.
Conspiracy's complaints were not the beginning of this issue, but they
are the end of it.
I won't let an ingracious subset of players ruin what was originally
intended as a fun and amusing toy, and a way to give prizes when we
normally wouldn't. But I will create an attitude which is sufficient to
protect myself from damage.

Overall I've been very pleased with what I've gotten out of
the prize machine.

I love everything and anything i get from the prize machine!
i think they're original and funny...and to those who don't like what they
get from there...i suggest you just exchange it with someone else who
appreciates it...or sell it and quit complaining...
well i'm just one of those people who likes to collect all these
stuff...so i love the prize machine...i think we should appreciate
the fact that the prize machine and the prizes you get from it even exists
And for whoever who wants to know who could find a use for the chandelier,
I have an alt who's the Phantom of the Opera, and if you know the story
he sent a chandelier crashing in the Paris Opera House, so I know he
could use one...:P so there...:P too bad he ain't got one though...
