    Funny thing is that Krakii has said he keeps an account open solely to post on the officials.

    Are the shenanigans on Discord really that bad that there needs to be account/phone/birth certificate linkage though? There have been like a couple impersonators who were found out immediately, a handful of meltdowns... it's pretty tame from what I've seen.

    They should just delete Gemstone and make Discordstone IV.

    I never use Discord for Gemstone, but there is no way I would link my account information from a game to a Discord server.

    I get what they're trying to do, but no thank you. That's like people that log into other services using their Facebook login, or etc. etc. Linking services like that is a no-no for me. Keep everything separate.

    That being said - I really wish they used the ANNOUNCE window more in game. SF has a nice window for it, and they should provide notifications in game more regularly + set up a "board" in game they can update once a day with some command that brings up "item A, B, C, etc." for those of us who don't use Discord.

    Would be easy to implement, take maybe 15 minutes a day to update once formatted. And bingo bango, you're done.

    Edit:

    Now that think about my recommendation: That solves my paranoia of linking anything via computer account, but not the concerns of many of their Discord being associated with their actual account (which has their personal information) and the possible ramifications of that. So deleting my recommendation, as I fully understand not wanting that either.

    I got in a discussion with Wyrom on this a couple days ago on the discord general channel. I feel this pain but every time i bring it up (including this time) it just kinda gets dismissed. I was suggesting they put a changelog in the announcements window of the game. Or news command. Or somewhere. His response was dig through the announcements folder in the officials, which is "where everything gets posted". First the officials are painful to use and not searchable. Second a lot of shit doesn't get posted there.

    They do have the NEWS verb in game....but it's been a long time since I looked through it. They could certainly go back to using it if they haven't been doing so already.


    Just checked out the NEWS verb, they do have some updated info there on recent changes....though it's not everything and could use more love from the GMs to make sure all the news is available in an easy to find location in game.

    I get ya. The thing that's odd to me mainly is, once the format is established in game - it's no extra work to cut+paste and drop from Discord, forums, internal documents, or anywhere else into the "in-game board".

    Literally ctrl+c, alt+tab, ctrl+v. 10 seconds - and that way everyone can access the official updates in game.

    They done so many amazing updates to formatting, information dissemination of game mechanics in game, etc. that this seems like a no-brainer easy layup.

    Wow, they want tight control over a niche dying game. I was considering returning to try out sorc changes when those happened, but honestly, this need for the GM staff to control everything is a pretty big fucking turn off.

    Pretty soon if you have a negative dream about simutronics they will take steps against your game account.

    You joke but Discord could probably run better than the current client.

    I used to hold them in the highest esteem. The moment they started making alternative currencies and $20,000 text boots was the moment I no longer had anything good to say about them anymore.

    It's because Simu nerfs so much shit, they'd rather not announce it, so they just bury the needle in a Discord haystack in the middle of the night.

    Probably.

    I have no idea wtf Wyrom does anymore. It looks more and more every day like Estild is really the one running the show. Which is garbage as fuck.
