Not to throw stones, but this is getting a little ridiculous.

I've sent several emails/private messages to the gods over the past month +, no response.

A month without even checking email is pathetic.

I'd rather see the game go down then continue this charade, embarrassing.

Ody (hasn't responded to a PM and hasn't even visited the forum since september 10th) is gone and Jasmine has been gone, and LL hasn't responded to an email chain we were going back and forth on for over a month, so it seems hes now gone.

If you can't commit a few hours a week on average, then you shouldn't be a staff/builder/whatever. I'm not saying have to be on all the time, but you should at least make an appearance so people THINK you're doing something, even though you aren't.

Show some character and accept some responsibility as administrators, either resign/close the game, or get someone else who actually has a minute to answer emails/be an administrator/accepts some responsibility.

I'll even buy the rights to the game if that's what it takes.

C'mon man. confused

Not to come off wrong man but the community has sunk, badly. Be glad the game is still up.

Not sure what having staff powers would mean to you, but sometimes it's more of a burden then you may think.

As I said, the game is still free, and may have a few flaws but it's FREE. If I where you I'd take my time to play instead of posting things like this because God only knows how much longer it may still up with only complaints being posted anymore.

There are plenty of volunteers who would help administrate, it's not like its impossible to replace people and its not like this game needs a ton of administration. I'm not asking for OMG TONS OF ADMIN AND UPDATES!!!

But the admin needs to be around for the game to stay up, LL wanted me to help test something and we were emailing back and forth to get it rolling then all of a sudden he's gone for over a month now... gets a little frustrating.

They volenteer their time to the game but if most of the active players bece admin then what's the point?

I understand your frustration with admin not being on but they have lives too. This game has been around a LONG time and switched "Main" admin a few times as well. It's just a cycle the happens with V2.

My only advice I can give is to keep playing and "hope" the game comes back around. Posting complaints about admin not playing is a sure fire way of pushing away people that might want to start playing this game away.

Please be patient with us.
As you all know we have lives outside of Aranock, but I do agree that going a few months without hearing a reply from admin can be frustrating.

The game has been slow for some time now, and instead of being part of the solution, you are part of the problem. As Limitless mentioned, posting only negative related topics doesn't help the game and/or community. If you have an idea, post it in our brain storm idea. Don't say "it's wrong so fix it". Tell us what you would like us to fix, tell us what you would like added. Tell us in detail about all this information. Post quest ideas, with detailed descriptions. If you want new items made, post gfx files with it. I can guarantee you that every post in the forums is being looked at by admin and discussed amongst each other. We rate things on how easy/fast it can be implemented, and how many people would benefit from it. These changes don't come over night and sometimes we get side tracked and take longer to complete - that is life.

We aren't doing it on purpose to upset our community, and have been talking in private messages about the issues we are having.

All I can ask is for you to be patient and enjoy the game we all love. We will be up and strong once again shortly!

This sounds like something that could be resolved at the xroads.  What a Face

But seriously...admin applications are open to anyone if you think you can make a positive influence in the community and game. Apply today!

Character wipe doesn't resolve the issue, just puts a band-aid on things. People would restart and play again, only to slowly get to where we are now. The only problem is, people will quit all together if you do the wipe.

If we fix the problem and have weekly LQs and monthly or bi-monthly updates, people will come back around and be able to use their characters they spent so much time playing.

Not going to lie, I wouldn't re-rank my sorc if we wiped.

I wouldn't mind seeing a char wipe. Sure things would eventually get back to the way they are now, but it'd be fun until then. As for people possibly quitting because of it.....we already have almost no one playing anyway.

I would actually play if there was a wipe and all statues removed.

Solves so many issues others who wanted to play but were not able to do what they wanted.

So many clans have inactive players and this would give active players a chance to play and start a real clan.

I pretty much stopped playing kane when i lent him out for Dpot making and they tainted him ny ruining his death record lol.

As for content this would give all players a chance to try it. Whats the point of a new exclusive for officer only area when most of us have nobles or near nobles as mains?
