Re: How to Successfully Revive Game Franchises

I see no real negatives to the system as Shard owners can still choose to install other ages or remove the default ages. Its a system that would help to bring order to chaos without limiting shard owners options. Then do it. Create such a Council and run it. Proof will be in the pudding, as shard o...

Re: How to Successfully Revive Game Franchises

I don't mean Cyans content. Only Cyan should decide what happens to there own story arc's/etc since they created them(Whoever writes a story arc should have full control over it imo). Yes pretty much like FCAL. Though my definition of Official is what is released to shards(In a nice package by the ...

Re: How to Successfully Revive Game Franchises

@Stucuk, you have completely lost me on how you implied democracy was representative of an imperfect system evolving to the idea of GoW and OU picking a council. Could be cos it never evolved? Zardoz's posts read to me like Councils and Polls were imperfect and as a result its a bad idea to use any...

Re: How to Successfully Revive Game Franchises

But its better to have some kind of group to review changes or to have polls so you at least you shouldn't get the situation where you have things becoming "Official" which then causes a large part of the community to boycott the game(Such as adding in currency which people have already strongly vo...

Re: How to Successfully Revive Game Franchises

It won't be chaotic as long as there is a system in place to review ideas/etc. What?!?!?! The Uru community without chaos? Sacrilege!! Either a group of people.... The history of this approach in the Uru community suggests that it would be more chaotic and acrimonious than the alternative that Nala...

Re: Enforcement will not be an issue on fan shards

Your experience with the UU shards is way deeper than mine, so maybe you can address this - were there any instances of a player's identity being stolen or spoofed back then? I hear so much about the lousy security of MOULa, but have no idea whether such a thing is possible. It's not a matter of foo...

Re: Importance of QA & QC as a Best Practice

Zardoz, would you consider facilitating (only when needed of course, your call) and sharing your expertise in this project? My expertise is in evaluating economic and sociocultural metrics and indicators in the context of coupled human-natural system modeling. :geek: Among other things . . . :o But...

Re: Importance of QA & QC as a Best Practice

Ideology and other high-level concepts are great - but ultimately, QA&QC depends on finding metrics that are observable and measurable, and so it's just as important to connect the one to the other. Define the ideology or the goals of the forum, and then start to propose ways of measuring success or...
