  2. Stratics is pleased to introduce a community Article Management System (AMS) to the forums! AMS allows users to contribute articles about profession templates, houses, pvp, or a variety of other topics. This is a great way to showcase your ideas that require more space than a typical thread. Our staff can also feature articles and promote threads into articles (when appropriate). We are pretty excited about this feature and hope you will be too. It will allow the community another way to express themselves and contribute to the growth of the game and community! For information on how to submit an article, read this article.
  3. We've put our heads together to simplify the Rules of Conduct (ROC) from 23 items down to 8. We hope that the new ROC will be more intuitive and easier to remember. This should also help us to improve our moderation by focusing on fewer items. We are always striving to make Stratics better and to encourage communication and participation. We think that you'll be happy for this improvement. Thanks for being here.

    I know some of my fellow old timer thieves will not like this idea, but I need to put it forth. I'd like to end the split of the thief forums.

    You can argue all day about what is "thieving" and what isn't. But, dangit, those crates over there in Trammeville still have the stealing skill. Whats more, the new Exodus thing has even made it that some Trammie thieves are running around with the snooping skill! We aren't getting any new blood in the PvP thief world. The ones I've managed to recruit over the last few years have all been converted Doom thieves. Players haven't started out as PvPers in 13 years. All new blood comes from Trammel.

    I want us to put aside the petty squabbling. We have 1.5 decades of wisdom to offer these Trammie youngins. In return, they can offer us life. The only new thieves will come from the ranks of the crates. Let's join together. Offer them training advice where possible. In the meantime, we can try to lure them over to the fun and challenge of PvP thieving and breathe a little life into our profession.

    I don't know about you all, but the most joy I've got from thieving in the last few years has been taking a Trammie and introducing him to the fun and excitement of Fel. You should hear their reaction when they make that first theft and get away. It's awesome.

    Thoughts?

    Nonel --- I like this idea. I may be willing to get something going on Atlantic to offer my advice and expertise I have accumulated over the years. I haven't been that active in quite some time....but....I may have some free time on my hands in the upcoming months. Let me see what I can put together.

    I could help out on Atl. I also still have thieves on Cats, Chessy, GL, and Siege. My main "thief" account isn't active anymore, though, so those are the shards I'm limited to. :(

    It seems to me that any and all attention to stealing from the development side is going to focus on crates. Can't blame them, putting resources into Fel is like beating a dead horse. Hopefully we pickpockets can capitalize off of new thief additions in the future, no matter what facet it focuses on.

    I'm all for it. As long as people don't start flaming each other for different play styles like before.

    Haha, that gave me a good chuckle. Hopefully people won't get to upset with my methods again. :grin:

    If they do it will be dealt with. Best advice for everyone on this, if someone flames don't respond to it.. Report it and let the Mods handle it. If you go back and forth both parties are at risk of being infracted.
