I have been contacted by my tutor from University today asking would I like to do my 3rd year at my local University to get my full degree for games design. It might/might not go ahead, it just depends on how many students they get on the course, but I hope it does go ahead. Fingers crossed.
7o27a, you haven't been in-game for seven-teen days now. You and I both know what that means. Your application has been denied due to inactivity. If and when you become active again and try for TempMod/Helper again, contact Satomi, Charre or myself.
Tbh there will always be people who don't vote at all no matter what, some players probably don't even pay attention to the ingame messages or some who probably don't even understand English (the likes of MOP030B even though he belongs to the abyss now), Yes these players are not hugely great in number but still contributes to the overall pollcount of an automatic No vote.
Whilst I agree games *can* be ruined with the auto no vote, you have to remember not everyone is visiting the forums and viewing this topic or similar ones.
I think the way Shai has it now, 1 Aow/5 Mara is suitable and seems to keep majority of people happy as the server is still filling up in the evenings and weekends.
Personally I wouldn't be opposed to removing the auto no vote but let's not forgot the others.
