    Are you satisfied with the way he runs things or not, just a simple poll to see where we stand as a community
     
  2. This is beyond ignorant. Dudley is hands down one of the top EM's in UO.

    Whatever personal complaints or inequities you are perceiving he is perpetrating on Chessy are just that...personal.

    Trying to drag his name through the mud in the court of public opinion is petty and childish.

    And from the results of the poll thus far...ineffective to boot!

    Well put Stoned Mariner, well put.

    I'm also sick of statements like this:

    "P.S. - we as a community are sick of getting......."

    Try speaking for yourself.
     
  5. I don't own a house on Chesa nor do I post on stratics often, but I do attend EM events here commonly.

    EM Events are the only reason I still play UO, arsehattery like this post would have driven me off a long time ago.

    You are not happy with Dudley because you are a rares profiteer and he doesn't give you the items you want, in the frequency you want, with the rarity you want.

    Basically you play a game of 'Speculation' and he is cramping your style, so you are being the 'squeaky wheel' hoping to get some grease. I highly doubt its gonna happen.

    The problem is, you follow a false assumption that everyone agrees with you, will follow you, or otherwise cares what it is you have to say.

    You do not speak for me, you do not speak for anyone else on this server, so don't pretend to.

    Normally a post like this would be just fine, however given the tone and tenor of your other posts recently as well as in the past it is obvious that your ONLY focus is on Rare Items, buying, selling and speculating; while trashing the EMs for doing whats good for the community over whats good for your bank vault/wallet.

    Honestly, the more Dudley and the other EMs focus on story over items the happier most of us are, the better the game experience gets and the more people like you scream and cry.

    Keep crying, the more you cry the better an EM Dudley is in my opinion.

  7. I'm not a role player at all, beyond calling myself "A Stoned Mariner" and promoting marijuana through colorful satire.

    I have collected rares for over 10 years, literally since the first couple months I got into UO.

    I just think with all the rares in game. All the opportunities to get them through buying/selling, EM events on a dozen servers. That crying about our EM (who is a great EM regardless of your criticisms) is a waste of time and energy.

    And a bunch of crybabies moaning is not going to remove a competent and well respected EM. If anything you simply are alienating yourself from the greater Chessy community.

    I voted no by accident, i just wanted to see the results. I think the poll is kind of sad. If you do not like the EM events, you should email Mesa with suggestions, but a poll means ZERO

    i sent Mesanna about 5 e-mails in the past 2 weeks, not 1 response from any of them, and a poll does mean something to me so i can see how many people agree with me, its not a matter of who wins yes or no, its a matter of how many people are dissatisfied with the way things are being run
     
  13. 1. I do not collect rares. I have a few, but I have them because I like them or they mean something to me because a friend gave them to me. The fact that they are "rare" is just not that important to me. My opinions have nothing to do with rares.

    2. Dudley does not respond to reasonable criticism, other than to blow it off. We have the right to question his actions. I will own being a "crybaby" if it is because I am complaining when someone who is supposed to be serving me and the other players of Chessy refuses to be accountable for his or her actions.

    3. Who said anything about removing an EM? We have been through the same argument 3 or 4 times at least since the EM program was instituted and Dudley came to the shard. Every player should expect strait answers when they ask a question in good faith. Every player should expect equal treatment compared to other shards. Don't put words into other people's mouths.

    4. Please explain how those of us who are unhappy lost our right to express it? Explain how my complaints are unfounded? Quit trying to sweep us under the rug by calling us "greedy" or "crybabies" or any of the other negative terms that we have been called over the past year or two.
     
  14. Demon you act like nobody on the forums knows your history of judgment and negativity towards Dudley and the Chessy EM's.

    So the whole "ohh this is just an innocent survery", where you word it is non-descript as possible and try to act like this is some just whimsical question you are asking...is a joke. I know it, you know it, we all know it.

    You made the poll with an agenda. You are absolutely right, you are entitled to do it, as well as have an opinion.

    As are those who disagree, as we have proven abundantly here in this thread.

    But yes, this is a crybaby post. This is a "whaaaa whaaa we are ENTITLED??? to more EM items just like other shards may or may not get at any given time".

    Nobody is "entitled" to jack crap. Show me where the UO TOS says EM items will be distributed and apportioned shard by shard based on quantity and quality and population and blah blah blah.

    The only thing you are "entitled" to when you sign the TOS from UO is access to the game. IN WHATEVER FORM THEY SO DESIRE TO PRODUCE.

    Case closed!

    In all honesty, these drops don't mean much to me anymore. I preferred when I just did the events for the story line and RP interaction with the community.

    Once I turned to " I want an item !!! Give me gold !!! Cha ching !!!" Then It became more irritating and I myself wanted more drops and it was all about the items. This is not the right path to follow.

    I enjoy most of the story lines and try to RP if possible now. I don't do events on other shards anymore. My only complaint was the long story lines, I wanted short bursts of different stories lasting maybe 3 parts. Nothing too long. Thats about it.

    Dudley is a fine EM. Event Item numbers or quality should in no way be used to gauge his efficacy as an EM. Sorry Demon, this post is low class. You should have just emailed him in a polite way and continued to talk to him in that manner from day 1. Once you start these witch hunt type affairs, you gain nothing and you look like a jackass.

    I vote YES !!! and those who vote NO, I will find you and harbinger your asses to death !!! Mu ha ha !! mu ha ha !!!
     
  16. Gunga, are you saying that Dudley does not make mistakes? He makes them all the time. The problem is he NEVER admits them like an adult or does anything to correct them. Emailing does nothing. Rivi has emailed him multiple times. We have tried and tried to handle this the "right" way. We just get blown off and ignored. It seems that as long as Dudley is not screwing over his defenders, they do not care that he is screwing over others.
     
  17. Funny Gunga but I have heard the opposite come out of your mouth when it is a more private communication.

    first of all i don't think i know you, i asked around who you were and someone said you are a member of the Merxmere township that fishes all day or something so don't act like you know me

    now back to the topic, the purpose of the survey is to see how many people want something changed in the way events are ran or the way Dudley acts, that is all, i didn't say we need to get rid of him, just changes need to be made. Regarding my negativity towards dudley and chesapeake EMs, yes i had problems with the way dudley is conducting himself during events, however I had no problem with EM Tailspin and EM Faine Morgan when they were on Chesapeake, i enjoyed them a lot, i did not like EM Vladimir at all either as well as many others. EM Drosselmeyer seems like a good guy, I'm just waiting for him to do his own events sometimes instead of only tag-teaming with EM Dudley for events.

    as the atlantic EM recently posted to the community on that shard "As I have said from day one, this is YOUR EM program, I am just the Event Moderator. I am willing to take all feedback, event ideas, and target audience ideas to heart."

    i was about to reply with the same thing, Gunga has expressed how he doesn't like the way events are conducted on Chesapeake many times to me and does not want to get on the EMs bad side which is why he isn't expressing that opinion here, me on the other hand i really don't care about what can happen to me, if i want to express my opinion I will, I am a paying customer and i won't let anyone intimidate me
     
  20. We are ENTITLED to adult behavior by those who are charged to serve us. When you go to a restaurant do you take what ever the establishment decides to serve you? Do you buy what ever the store of your choice has in stock, even if you don't like what they have and the person selling what you don't really want is rude? I just don't understand your point, unless you are saying we should DRINK OUR TEA, PAY THE TAX ON IT, and SHUT THE HELL UP. In that case, lets toss it in the harbor.
