What happened to good manners, and the right way to send in complaints, and even, yes, common sense? Did you all really expect her to respect you more after that kind of treatment? To listen to you when deluged by Tells as she is trying to hold an event?

The company is showing you more courtesy that you showed her by rescheduling, and she is showing more courage than any of you be being prepared to go to you again. How many of you have that kind of real courage, not the kind that gangs up on others and acts as a mob?

You want your voices to carry weight, then act more responsibly. Bullying won't get you anywhere, but reasoned dialogue with SOE just might, even now.

The fact that PvP attracts these kinds of personalities, is why I don't like PvP, plus the fact they usually aren't designed well.

Kiara, I am confused - I'm really looking forward to Splitpaw's turn at the party, but I found this announcement:

From 9:00 AM PDT until 1:00 PM PDT on Monday, April 27, 2009, all of the SOE services and games will be undergoing maintenance and will be unavailable. (from here)

Does that mean Splitpaw's party will be during server downtime? Somehow I think that will make for a very lonesome party SMILEY

Hello all. 

Yes, it seems that they have scheduled some maintenance.  The notice came in Sunday afternoon and I didn't see it until this morning.

I'm afraid this will interfere with our party today /sad panda.

We'll have it Wednesday (April 29th) at 11:30am PDT instead.

My deepest apologies, I didn't expect there to be downtime today.

To Venekor and Vox:  My deepest apologies.  With Free Realms launching, I was unable to run the parties on your servers today.

I'll post the reschedule tomorrow and will be sure to bring an extra present!

Okay all!  Sorry about Venekor and Vox yesterday.  All my fault for being caught up in Free Realms launching.

Ven and Vox are rescheduled for tomorrow (Thursday, April 30th) at 4 and 5:15 pm respectively.  Amnerys will be setting out portals around the world for everyone to join her in the Community Lounge!

We look forward to seeing you all there.

Splitpaw will be having their party in about half an hour!  Can't wait to see everyone there!

Geeze. SMILEY The server handles us all doing Raids and what not, why would the party crash it? /disappointed.

Oh, well at least I am not alone frantically trying to get back inot game! But I seem to be in Lavastorm suddenly for some reason according to Character Select screen. Bizzare......

Wish people were warned that this includes 5-10 minutes zoning time + crashing + almost impossible to log back in. Everything's fluffy otherwise.

Please don't ever have an event like this agin until the logon Servers are upgraded. Trying to zone anywhere is taking 5-10 mins making grouping almost impossible.

I didn't see anyone from SOE there, sadly, but we crashed the server twice.

Just like to say Thank You for the goodies. SMILEY They are lovely, but pity we didn't see you, Kiara.

*chuckle*

... and down the server goes, when I'd scarce had time to greet Lady Kiiara.

*waits for it to recover so she can return*

Thanks for coming, in case I don't get another opportunity to say so! SMILEY

Yes SMILEY  Crushbone and Nek are still happening tomorrow as well SMILEY  Amnerys will be taking care of our PvP servers and I'll be taking care of Crush and Nek...

And we may now have to fit AB into the schedule somewhere for a do-over party...

It seems that Her Majesty, Antonia, has thrown quite the shindig.  There are rodent issues occurring!!!

I actually reactivated my account for this....and I login, only to crash. And crash. And crash again.

I'm beginning to want to ask for my 14.99 back.

Antonia Bayle is quite the party server!  It seems the Kerrans have done a poor job of keeping the Ratonga out of the Palace.

I'll be sure to schedule another party (or two?) for AB, as we're having some rather serious trouble staying around long enough to get to the cake!

(( Hmm, perchance I'd have done better to bring my Kerran chef instead of my main Paladin then? *chuckles*))

*curtseys*

Pleased to have had opportunity to see you, at least, even if the world couldn't bear the signature of your power.

Should you see fit to return on another day, I shall do my best to honor that visit (or at least one of them) by attending also! *smiles*

Many thanks for making the effort! SMILEY

It's official!

Hear ye, Hear ye!  Citizens of Antonia Bayle...  We're going to have to have a do over party SMILEY

May 7th, 4pm PDT!!!

This time, we won't have it in Antonica... We'll find another zone that will perhaps support our numbers better SMILEY

So sorry to those who came out and had things cut short, and to those who couldn't get in to have the party cut short.

However, thank ALL of you for such a huge turn out SMILEY

Kiara thank you so much for trying, I apologise for all the gripers who don't realise GM's aren't miracle workers.

See you guys next time. Only thing is what area can better hold the people? Antonica is pretty much one of the least crowded and most accesable areas?

I hate to say it...

But on Antonia Bayle you will need to run it in at least a half dozen zones. Probably with the help of a bunch of other gm's.

I seriously doubt ANY zone can handle a full turn out of AB *celebrators*...after all - they will get the goodies, then start letting off veterans fireworks...it's a celebration after all.

Any way to do a ZW disable fireworks until its over?

And I apologise for all the whining, complaining, griefing and griping - I was horrified (and YES I was one of those crashed a bunch of times trying to get there so missed out - too bad!) and there was no reason for it. It was a fantastic idea and they were ungrateful.
