Some of you may already know me from LeakyCon. I unexpectedly became a volunteer last year at LeakyCon 2011, after a major debacle resulting in insane registration lines. I worked hard to keep people happy, deal with frustrated attendees, parents/chaperones, etc. In 2012 I was…
Essentially, what this comes down to, is another massive blow to the Leaky brand. Leakycon ist the only conference I’ve walked away from multiple times where people had so many things to complain about. I think that if it weren’t for the awesome people who attend, it’d be a lot more negative.
This all could have been easily avoided with a contract. Melissa has said that because there was no money involved in Leakynews, that there wasn’t a contract in place when it started, but that is a terrible idea. Every single company should start with a contract in place between founders (and employees after that!) regardless of how much money the company is making (or not making).
I think that we will see this play out, but the only thing I can say is that I’m sure the people at hypable are laughing.×
I wish the maps would’ve stayed in the old style and just gotten banner updates. That way we could have nice art and easy navigation!
We are doing something like this! We all agree that they are crazy hard to navigate now if you haven’t clicked the same place every day since they were released.×
but I liked it better when it didn’t reblog everything in the subeta tag.
I stopped following it for a long time because it got to a point where they just reblogged art, art, and more art. Stuff that I already see by tracking the Subeta tag. It got repetitive and…
1. Reblogging from the Subeta tag means that people who don’t follow the Subeta tag but do follow the Subeta tumblr get a chance to see that stuff. Notice how when something gets reblogged by Subeta suddenly it gets 20-100 more likes? Everyone doesn’t track #subeta.
2. Everytime there is original anything anywhere but on the site there are a thousand complaints. We’re still going to continue doing it, but just keep that in mind.×
I especially love how the subeta economy is being crashed on purpose, quests are giving out significantly less than they used to, and ask for items that are just too pricey to even complete the quest. Why do I want to burn through 40 wizard quests and 30 sagittarius quests with more often than…
It’s not being crashed on purpose.
Let me try and clear a few things up.
All quests are going to be eventually changed. The whole scheme of the change will hopefully make more sense once this happens. Right now a single quest (quentin) has been changed.
A lot of people who are frequently discussing the removal of sP from Quentin did not frequently do the quests prior to the change (most of them are achievement users who did the amount required for the top achievement, and then stopped) so while I understand the outrage at the change, a lot of these are from people who did not do them.
Quentin was one of the most infrequently done quests (something like 70% of quests done daily are, of course, wizard quests) and so a change was needed.
Our goal going forward is to give each quest something unique to ask for (Quentin is now an awesome way for you to save up those thousands of event items you get, put them in your vault and wait for them to start being asked for) and something unique to give back. We removed the items from the graveyard shop and instead gave them to Quentin. Obviously right now that isn’t very fun, because you are getting items that have been on the site for years and have deflated (or are useless). We have plans (especially in Morostide) to really beef up that pool of items with interesting things that we think people will really like, and will make it worth it to do the quests.
This is our goal for all of the quests. Let me be very clear, I hate the idea that people feel like they have to buy CSC to earn sP. Neopets took a different path than us (you can’t trade credits) but I wanted CSC to be available for everyone and something that anyone could get by just playing Subeta. Most of our features don’t require CSC, just ‘account upgrades’ and some cool items in the cash shop (Which we’ve released less of this year than ever).
Also fyi I hate zynga with every fiber of my being. If we are becoming like them in anyones eyes that is the absolute opposite of my goal which is to create a place that is the most fair that it could possibly be on the internets.
Again, I really hope that things start to make more sense once more quests are pushed out with their changes.×
Why is their goddess white?
Why are most of the NPC’s white?
I wish the Subeta team would have picked a less awkward theme for the Sacred Lands I mean, I’ve always thought it was based off Ancient Greece before the update :S
They’re goddess is white because she doesn’t come from Subeta. Same with the Wizard, neither of them are from there! Lots of ‘powerful’ people seem to migrate there, though :).×
omg I wish I had a pet slot sobs
MY NAME IS DAENERYS STORMBORN I AM THE MOTHER OF DRAGONS YOU WILL LISTEN TO ME SPEAKING LOUDLY×
The Delish sets are starting to look very similar to me. I used to look forward to each release, but now they seem to look almost identical, just a different color and a few changes.
No offense to the artists, because they are still drawn very well, but I just wish there was more variety like in the beginning.
Yes. Totally the same.×
I WANT TO UPDATE CHARACTERS/IMAGES. ;n;
I AM SO SORRY THAT THIS KEEPS BREAKING.
Seriously though to anyone who loves charahub when something breaks you can tweet at me (@keithkurson) and I will see it way faster than something in this tag and…
This makes me really warm and fuzzy inside! I’m glad that we’ve hit a note with a lot of people in ‘our’ community who didn’t realize this was something they needed but now really do see a huge value in it!×
