    Please remove Treasures of Tokuno from the Town Cryers. I know you're busy but it's making you look bad.

    i brought it up a while ago. fell on deaf ears. stratics staff feel this kind of post is bossy and we should be more deferential towards the ea staff. just a heads up they might be right.

    It does make them look bad, however. There were brand new players asking about it. When I told them the Treasures of Tokuno were over and that the message hadn't been removed, the new players asked, "Why would they leave it up?" I had no good answer to give them.

    I've never been able to figure out why the town crier messages aren't coded into the turning on and off of the actual event. Would solve alot of issues with events being announced 3days after it starts and continuing to be announced weeks after ending.

    Seems as if that's something that should go into the publishes that come with the events.

    Remember when game masters could change town criers? I remember back in 2001, a friend of mine told a game master that he liked killing rats. Within 20 minutes, all the town criers were announcing a rat invasion and hundreds of rats were running through all the major cities.

    I wish EMs had similar authority to alter town crier messages.
