these bonus items for buying csc are starting to get really annoying
way to go subeta you’re becoming more money grubbing with every passing day I swear to god
Because we’re giving an additional item and bonus CSC for purchasing something?
Thread is locked, so I guess I’ll post this here.
I did a little research and Googled Stormlight Workshop. I think it’d be harder to dismiss Thrage than many of you are thinking, and that’s probably why he’s remaining. He is not an employee. Stormlight Workshop LLC is owned by him and his three coworkers according to the registration documents of the company. The four admins all have ownership in the LLC, and thus Flight Rising.
I’m not really sure there are any easy procedures to kick out a legal owner of a website. Not without involving a lawyer, and that would require some time on the other admins’ behalves if they are considering that option.
As one of the minorities targeted by Thrage’s comments I still feel really uncomfortable about this whole situation, but I understand this isn’t an easy solve. I don’t like the choice to keep Thrage but I’m also unsure what else the other admins could do at this point considering he partially owns Stormlight Workshop, and I understand that’s a very tough place to be. I am personally reserving judgement until a little more time has passed. I have faith in Undel, Akiri, and Xhaz.
Little bit of confirmational insight, but it can be very difficult, legally costly, and time-consuming to remove someone in even a non-owner upper tier management position from a company or corporation, speaking from having personally seen it done.
Chances are good nothing will happen quickly— it might take months or longer to sort out the paperwork required to do so, theoretically speaking. So I’m personally not surprised, although I am biting my nails a bit, as it’s an incredibly delicate situation to have to move slowly on.
I DON’T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS SITUATION BUT I’M OFFERING MY INSIGHT. If there are four owners (with an equal amount of ownership in the company) the three owners can vote to remove someone (even a partial owner) from the company. That person would still have ownership and be allowed to vote on all things brought to the board (though, could obviously be outvoted on any matter)×
From this thread on the Virtual Pet List.
Yes, you read that right: he came into the thread insulting the person working on making something for others to enjoy.
Definitely not the first time he’s acted like a brat, though. Guess I shouldn’t be surprised.
The self-centered signature just seals the deal on this post. Jfc.
Not really arrogant, just against people wasting their time and talent on something that has been proven not to work.
I don’t go on VPL anymore (and won’t be clicking the link to look at my posts) but I’m pretty sure I apologized later on in the thread if I hurt anyones feelings.
Again: I think this is a stupid idea, and it’s not going to work. There have been thousands of these sites over the years and none of them have worked, and there are a lot of reasons why. It’s impossible to make a “good” virtual pet site from a pre-determined set of features. It’s impossible to make a “site builder” that appeals to a huge group of people. It’s impossible to have a clean database structure as such a small site that also encompasses a ton of other sites.
Also, me being an ass on internet forums has nothing to do with the incredible talent and hard work the staff on Subeta put in.
“I’m tired of these games!” King Keith shouted. “This dragon has destroyed my kingdom and tore my military apart.”
“But your majesty,” Jack replied, “We need every bit of help possible, and the Colonel just resigned! Now what?”
“I’m going to find that monster,” Keith said, “…and teach him a thing or two. It’s time Subeta sees the true power of its king!”
As Keith stormed off to find Advarsel, Blake spoke.
“I need to find Colonel Awesome, he shouldn’t be too far.”
“You go do that, Blake, for all I know, Keith may be in trouble.”
They nodded at each other and raced off to find the superpowers. It didn’t take more than an hour to find Colonel Awesome, radioing his regiment.
“Sir,” Blake begged, “Must you fight with the king now? We need you guys to work together!”
“There will be no working together,” Colonel Awesome replied. “The Armada and I are leaving Subeta and we’re not telling anyone where. That stubborn brat can rule without me interfering now.”
The ground shook beneath them, and there was Advarsel, gazing down at them.
“You two,” Advarsel spoke, “WHERE IS YOUR LEADER?”
“WHAT?” Blake shouted. “Advarsel can speak to humans?!”
“Right here,” Keith interjected, wand out. “I’ve had it with you destroying my home. For that, I’m going to destroy you!”
The sky turned to darkness as Keith’s eyes turned into a hue of saffron. His wand and hand began to cast as spell as Blake and Jack (who finally found Keith) stared in excitement. The spell grew more powerful by the second. Now an electrical sphere, more than 50 feet in diameter, was in Keith’s control.
“Oooh, a fireworks show,” Colonel Awesome said.
“SAFFRON SURGE!” Keith shouted, as a blast of electricity was thrown at Advarsel. The dragon disappeared within the yellow haze. As the light faded, Advarsel reappeared.
“IS THAT ALL YOU’VE GOT, YOUR MAJESTY?” Advarsel laughed as he grabbed Keith and held him in front of his face, “I don’t know if you have noticed, but my powers surpass the gods. There is no way you can kill me with your magic and cute little costume.”
“What …do you want from …us?” Keith asked.
“Make me the king and deity of Subeta,” Advarsel replied. “If you stop wasting my time, I may not kill you. Refuse now, and I WILL kill you.”
“Sir!” Jack shouted to Colonel Awesome, “You have to help him! Keith’s in trouble.”
“Actually,” Colonel Awesome said, “Let them keep going. Let’s see if Keith really as strong as he says he is.”
“Well…” Advarsel spoke again, waiting for Keith’s reply.
“Kill me if you want, you’re not taking Subeta. Over my dead body.” Keith said.
Colonel Awesome saw the regiment approach.
“Attack the monster now!” he ordered.
The aircraft starting firing at Advarsel. The dragon lost grip of Keith as he turned and was thrown through an open window. Luckily, he landed on a bed in one room, scaring the inhabitants inside.
“Sorry guys,” Keith told them.
As missiles were being fired at Advarsel, Colonel Awesome looked up at the attack in frustration. “This isn’t working! Retreat, retreat!” Colonel Awesome ordered.
Advarsel growled at them and backed away. “I’M GOING TO FIND YOUR GODDESS AND TAKE HER OUT FIRST. MAYBE YOU’LL BE LESS RESISTANT AFTER SHE’S DEAD. I’LL BE BACK FOR YOU LATER!”
He shot up into the sky and disappeared.
“He must be going to the Sacred Lands to challenge Shinwa. If Shinwa dies, Subeta’s magical source does as-“
He received a transmission and turned to Blake.
“You know those destroyed tablets you found? My team finally put the pieces together, but they can’t make out the final portion of the text.”
“…But I can,” smiled Blake. “Why?”
“Apparently,” Colonel Awesome said, “the Krypts are linked to Advarsel.”
Does anyone really understand Keith’s proposed changes to the Holiday shop? I… just… another form of currency, but one that gets deleted at the end of each holiday and doesn’t carry over? What’s the point? What’s wrong with just restocking as it is now; the majority of worthwhile items are already in holiday specific shops as it is, so people aren’t really missing much. I’m very confused and I have a faintly ominous feeling it’s just going to be implemented anyway, despite everyone else not really being on-board with it, either.
We don’t freeze anyone for having a different opinion then us… otherwise the entire B&C and feedback forum would be frozen. We love different opinions :)
Carolyn and I don’t see why neopets got more popular than subeta? I mean subeta has customisable human avatars and better looking pets and better colours for pets and lots of spoofy items and it’s actually possible to get the pet you want without having to save up for like 3 years… Oh and also they don’t ban you for stupid reasons…
Look at some of these awesome pets/pet colours tho srsly:
Keith Here, the owner of Subeta! Just popping in here to say PLEASE BE NICE SUBETA USERS. xoxo.×
If there’s a more creative item description I’d like to see it.
omg I drew this item. LOL.×
When the new Subeautique system was introduced, I was one of those welcoming the change. I suck at restocking, so I thought with this system, I can actually restock something there!
And for a while, I was right. I found a few invitations, and got some Subeautique items from my Wishlist. It was…
Yup, we are working on this and getting it where the sweet spot is :)×
subeta overall is a website that really needs a huge overhaul
and by huge overhaul i mean
a new avatar system including a new base
new artists that are all around each other in talent and genre. artists that only draw items, artists that only draw wearables, artists that only draw the pets, etc…
I seriously love this confession.
