Stop bloody starting topics, or even posting replies. See the big red text up there? Just because the mods aren't stopping you doesn't mean you should ignore it.It's kind of frustrating to have to wade through a bunch of people asking "is xyz fixed".Thank you <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

Yep you're right. They should make a patch-related forum then. This forum is the most closely related to Test's patches. Thereby making it the logical choice for questions concerning Test's patches. No need to for Mod-wannabes to start stoning others. Trolls die.Oh, can I see your mod badge, btw? <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /><p>Message Edited by Nai`Ji on <span class=date_text>12-17-2004</span> <span class=time_text>12:04 PM</span>

The two first words of your sentence "Stop" (a command) "bloody" (an acceptable term of emphasis, similar to cursing) contradict that. But no matter.<p>Message Edited by Nai`Ji on <span class=date_text>12-17-2004</span> <span class=time_text>12:16 PM</span>

Just my 2cp, but I think if they moved the test feedback area to the bottom of the forums, we would get less interruptions. Those people with general questions would scroll down to Test in the list of servers and post there instead. I think the current placement makes it to easy and convenient to find. At this point it may be too late, but might be worth a try.

I got an idea.. Maybe the testers should post information on what IS fixed rather then have people ask over and over again.. The only "bloody" crap I ever see is "XXX is broken." or "XXX is 100% useless.".. Why not post what was fixed and no one would need ask..

I'm not sure what build they based the current Test server on, but there are serious issues with stupid little things that worked in Beta! If you look around, items that have been changed for the positive, such as food, have been acknowledged. However, the focus is on all the things that are broken. Hopefully, after the holiday break, a lot of these little things will be cleared up.

So we have been exposed to pretty much low-end content on the test server.. Plus.. Why do people need to hear this over and over to get it? Its a test player feedback to the GAME DEVELOPERS.  NOT the live players that want a look at the new updates!  If a bug is there we will tell it on the board so the devs can see it and fix it.. We do not do it for all the live players to know it!  We dont say "Yeah this bug was fixed, thanks devs"  If there is something unballanced or wrong with a recent fix they made to something we would come here to tell what was wrong with it.. This is a forum for what is wrong, not what is made right............................................. ... For fixes ect try the update notes section.. or the general forums.

When I post here in this forum, it is for the devs, as they requested the testers give feedback to *them* here on the changes. If the change is working and doesn't suck, its a dead issue to me.. nothing to talk about. If a change isn't working or somehow managed to inadvertanly affect my character negatively... then I post about it if I didn't have time in game to /bug or /feedback it. Which btw, is my main way of communicating with the devs, this forum is a last resort, so most of what I might find for good or bad never gets posted here anyways.</P> <P>Not to sound crass and I am sure I am about to label myself as one of those "elitists" that play on Test, but I have zero motivation to report anything back to any other players. I *play* the game on Test server, as a benefit to SOE I will report anomolies I come across while *playing* to them. This isn't my job, I feel no need to report anything to anyone and the only reason I send in bug reports and feedback at all is because I like playing on Test server and I like knowing I am in some way helping make a better game... in short, its all about me really. </P> <P>Ocassionally, if I happen across a post here asking about something I know about and the poster isn't a jerk, I will reply with some info. But that is the rare occcassion and definately not the norm for me. Not to say there are not other testers who like reporting back their findings to everyone, but that is their choice and definately not any sort of requirement just because they play on Test. Feel free to keep asking, just do not expect the questions to get answered all the time is all. My wife and my's playtime is limited to a few hours each evening and weekends... I don't have time to be *testing* stuff for anyone outside my normal play really.. nevermind making lists of what was and wasn't fixed.</P>

OK, what I don't understand is that if you lot don't know what's broken, or what's fixed, what are you doing there?Next... the rudeness is really really unnecessary. Just because you're on test server DOES NOT MAKE YOU better than the rest of us.I've seen this on every game... the test server people get a huge attitude with the live server players.Go on, one star me, it doesn't make my points any less valid or the people in this thread any less [expletive ninja'd by Faarbot]s.FFS.

We have an offsite community board for community related stuff, so filling our server board here with questions to folks that play on Test wouldn't be bad and would definately help unclutter this forum some.</DIV>

I'd love to make my own character on test to learn some of this stuff. But with only 4 slots I'm not gonna waste one. And I do mean waste. A patch can sit on the test server for a month and once it goes live it's horribly broken. That pretty much negates the whole idea of using a test server no? I'm sure you folks would have noticed something like THE WHOLE [expletive ninja'd by Faarbot] tradeskill instance crashing on every combine. Complete zone or server crashes every 15-30 mins. Quests disappearing, completed quests reappearing. So what exactly is the purpose of a test server when it so obviously doesn't work? That is my question and I'm not gonna make a character on test just to ask it.

<DIV>It is anoying to find post here from people wanting answers and dont play on test.  I find my self weeding though a lot of those post trying to figure out whats going on with the fellow testers.   I think maybe the word "Feedback" is maybe whats drawing them in.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>
