    I voted no as I view the whole argument an non-issue. Yes an apology from EA would be ideal, but the dyes were a nice touch from the Devs.

    Voted other. Apparently we did need another and a poll to go with it.

    voted No - if it's about the 'one charge'.
    Yes, if informational, like things it won't dye, don't try this, etc.

    And here I thought this might be some sort of worthwhile post...

    I appear to be mistaken.
  8. Heck NO.

    We need a thread about people that are so enraged but don't quit.

    Dang... if this is such and injustice quit. Lets see a thread for all those that quit.

    Silly isn't it. I plan to buy the dyes for 200k and sell them for 500k . SWEET.

    Its a nice gesture gone awry. I would they spend the time fixing the act mgt problem with a letter/stratics post appologizing for the issues than spending time coding some dies that do nothing but cause more bickering and complaints.

    Its like when I let my kids have ice cream and then they complain its not their favorite flavor. Well, then don't eat it. You didn't have it 5 min ago but now that you do you are complaining. I should have never let you have it and there would be no complaining.

    Why exactly do we need all the redundant threads that fill up Uhall every time something goes wrong?
  12. Kayne

    So that other people can fill them with equally redundant posts (not you Kimi)

    Had you taken even a millisecond I'm sure your brain might have reached the conclusion that maybe, just maybe Kimi had resigned and given up the badge. After all stratics staff do sometimes quit their posts (me included)
  16. Indeed ...
    GIVING a gift >From compassion<

    does not necessarily MAKE the receiver >More(any) Compassionate<

    It's so small the receiver may say ...
    not knowing that >it may< have been More than the giver >could give<
    (some things ARE best left unsaid)

    BUT ! it is only ONE use !!
    then the >giver< shouldn't have >wasted it on YOU<

    Indeed ... >The Thought< counts most highly
    perhaps it would have been better for the >giver< in a "compassionate" way

    to have crafted a golden bottle of after shave / cologne / body wash
    a Fragrant scent of "sorry for your troubles" delicately presented as 1%
    99% of topical anesthetic ... to sooth the Slap Faces (and other bruised partas)


    nah ... its the "offended parties" FEELINGS that count most ...
    the "compassionate" parties probably FEEL quite content
    >They< made a gesture
    and SEE how it is met ?

    I'm just wondering, the two "events" being in close proximity ...
    How come no-one thought to Dye the Fluffy sheep
    one of four shades of compassion
    shear the sheep
    and weave a cloak, a shirt, a loincloth of "Victim of Compassion"

    :scholar: OHMY! I know know where their compassion to apply
    Thank you stratics trolls ... hehehehe ... >this one< IS on you! ... :danceb:

    Ok, I feel obligated to share a secret with you all. The Compassion dyes are kind of magic dyes, almost like Jack and his magical beans. However, in order for the dyes to utilize the magic coded within them you have to stop pancakes, whining and moaning over all the petty bullcrap for a month. Do THAT and the dyes change from 1 charge to 100 charges.
    Why do you think EA/Mythic and stratics both want your email address? Built in code to see who's griping and who ain't, kinda like Santa Claus, they gonna find out who's naughty or nice... *starts humming the song* ... compassion dyessss have come to townnnnnn!

    *to the non complainers around*


    Psssst.... not really but maybe that will shut the greedy ass babies up for a month and give us a little break :D
