    Shard Meeting With Mesanna
    Thursday November 12, 2009

    [​IMG]

    This Thursday at 9pm EST Mesanna will be hosting a discussion
    regrading the link of Player Towns. That will be at the Fair
    Grounds in the Big Blaze Tent. Mesanna will also be able to
    answer the questions on the Rune book area for Luna Bank.

    The Fair Grounds is located at the South exit of Luna city.
    Once you enter walk all the way to the back. Original proposal
    is below.

    City Gate Connection Proposal To Mesanna

    After reading the forums, icqs and in game discussions I have written out a more formal proposal. Everyone seems eager for the community meeting with you. Obviously I only spoke to people to sort of get a feel and try to have a general organized discussion when we all meet. I do know one thing from experience. We will most likely get a few naysayers and people that can come up with more complaints off the top of their head. Then we can give answers to that are meaningful and well thought out. So I really hope this proposal, even if not approved opens everyone's eyes to helping build our shard community and perhaps even spark some peoples interest to start a player run town.

    Proposal: Linking currently established, active and community oriented player run Villages, Towns and Cities together.

    Who:Communities already well established with a history of in and out of game community building. Along with promotion of the internal general community. Communities that are public and welcome everyone not just a select few. Player run communities that are a collection of individual people, groups or guilds. Also a well established area connected by buildings owned by various players.

    How: By use of land placed teleporter tiles, moongates or sparkle teleporters. Which leads to a central location inside of each player community that wishes to link to it.

    Why: Promote and support each others community work in the Chesapeake shard area. To also have a physical representation of connection between each community. Which will also gives each player run area easier access to each other and an easier ability to be located by new or returning players wishing to be apart of a player run experience.

    Maintenance: With this idea a certain amount of simple maintenance would need to be done. Over time new communities will arise wishing to be connected to such a device. Along with inactive communities over time already connected to it needing to be removed. A simple check list could be done by the shard EMs to see if the community area is able to receive this connection. Which will be sent up to the head of the EMs, Mesanna for implementation. This check list will however not have EA/Mythic officially recognizing or say what constitutes a player run city. Keeping EA/Mythic out of any debates or problems on having to officially recognize a player city. It will however decide if a community should be connected to this device.

    Examples of connection:

    Lady Mesanna has graciously contacted us to provide an example of the described teleporter and town banner combo located inside the Chesapeake Fairgrounds. Looks as if our ship has been replaced as well! Lets hope it doesnt sink!

    Would like to remind everyone the upcoming meeting is to come up with fresh ideas and suggestions for the location of not only a central teleporter location along with its in game graphic but anything the general public would like to see in the future. I know several have inquired about the once spoken of rune collection in luna for auction houses and other great ideas we'd like to see implemented. This is the exact opportunity we've waited for for years. Lets not send down in a blaze of glory with rudeness and contrite but welcome the chances we have before us for all will prosper with these upcoming additions if we work together. See ya Thursday!

    Just a few thoughts ....

    Who will decide on what locations are appropriate for such linking?

    What would make a location qualified for submission to such a program?

    What prevents it from becoming an 'friends' only situation and creating an atmosphere of favoritism?

    Would this be open to locations on all facets?

    How would this encourage players to develop new locations to help the community?

    How does this help promote all community player ran locations so none feel inadequate?

    These are just my thoughts not what is happening.

    EMs and Mesanna I would assume. Perhaps with input from the shard? Personally I wouldn't like to see a council of representatives from player run communities be the deciding factor. That to me is to much power for a group that is apart of the Chesapeake community.

    One that is about community. Oriented towards community promotion through establishments, guilds, roleplay, contests. An open community that welcomes people to be apart of it. Also perhaps somewhere that has been established and shows the qualities of community involvement. You can also look at the proposal Who section.

    Id have to use what I wrote in the proposal. Communities already well established with a history of in and out of game community building. Along with promotion of the internal general community. Communities that are public and welcome everyone not just a select few. Player run communities that are a collection of individual people, groups or guilds. Also a well established area connected by buildings owned by various players. As for Favoritism I would assume again assume our shard EMs would be the ones checking the areas.

    From what I understand yes. Trammel one have an area dedicated as the central hub, while also having a link to the felucca side central hub.

    By showing the communities that have been dedicated to making an area more then just another area of houses on the map. Symbolizing that working together with not just your people but, with different people, groups, guilds and cities on the shard to improve overall cooperation on the shard. This may encourage others to do the same and perhaps see that their efforts are no longer unnoticed and not be discouraged to do so.

    The proposal I sent in was geared towards player run city/town/village. So I am not sure if it will be to all community player ran locations such as Auction houses/ Public Smiths/ Single Taverns etc.
