    Mesanna: good morning all
    Mesanna: shall we begin


    Q1,
    EM Asiantam: about election
    EM Asiantam: since there are some governors existing who prevents new player
    EM Asiantam: so I am requesting you to place some kind of restriction
    EM Asiantam: for example
    EM Asiantam: they can't vote for 3 months after they becomes a citizen
    EM Asiantam: what do you think?

    Kyronix: It's osmething that has been asked before and we are considering all options

    EM Asiantam: thank you



    Q2,
    Player: Good Morning to you all
    Player: My questions is about Doom
    Player: All good and well that the Dark Father has a cool down on the number of times he can teleport
    Player: you to him.
    Player: But the leashed needs to be a bit longer so that we can get one further from the center
    Player: Going in with a full party spawns more DFs and having to face all of them is far to much
    Player: And please bring back the NORMAL spawn of summons the DFs had before this.
    Player: Every time our party of 10 enter to fight the Dfs it was the spawn that would cause the deaths
    Player: of most. Each DF would spawn anywhere from 3 to 5 ancient liches, bloods and other monsters
    Player: that were not a part of the spawn before.
    Player: So far each encounter of our party has been
    Player: score board
    Player: Dfs 10
    Player: Party of ten 0
    Player: We have yet to finish off all the DFs to get to the rooms since this revamp within the one hour
    Player: We plan on trying with a party of ten very soon and hope with
    Player: the changes that are now we can kill off a Df's or two *smiles*
    Player: Thank you

    Mesanna: thank you

    Mesanna: on how to make it useful

    Player: currently there are no
    Player: HQ

    EM Asiantam: he is asking to combine it with cooking skill

    Player: enchanted food.
    Player: maybe you could make it a pre-requisite
    Player: to make HQ enchanted food
    Player: or just for higher success rate
    Player: in creating food in general
    Player: could you give some thought into it?

    Mesanna: Potions and enhanced foods are a bit risky

    Player: you could then also fix the bug

    Mesanna: and take alot of time to get correct
    Mesanna: which bug?

    Player: the taste ID skill cap bug
    Player: I think you cannot go above 80
    Player: unless you have yourself

    Mesanna: not unless we can come up with a valid reason to use it

    Player: discorded by a satyr

    Mesanna: at this time we do not have it

    Player: to
    Player: weapon skills

    Mesanna: we understand your request but at this time we are not touching that system
    Mesanna: our hands are full for most of this year

    Mesanna: and what you are asking is a fairly time consuming project to get right

    Player: I am not expecting you to get something done in the near future
