    Also, you're putting words in my mouth. I never said I wanted to start a thread about a particular subject, never said I wanted to start a thread at all. There's no need to be so defensive, I was only asking for clarification, which I still haven't received. Just think about it for a bit and get back to me.
    1. There was no threat to close lounges, but rather if it's going to bother people, perhaps it needs to be reevaluated to see if it's productive for this forum.
    2. I said 'you' as an example, because you were the one making the comments....

    Perhaps, I'm not the one being defensive.

    The situation with the forum has always been that some people avoid posting because the vitriol can flow thick, but I'm wondering why Travian GBH has not taken any steps to try to improve its standing. Can you think of a popular game that does not advertise? I still get ads for WOW, and I get hundreds of ads on facebook everyday. Why has there not been any Travian ads?
    I won't touch on your first statement because.... well.... you see what happens when I say things that others can twist out of context lol.

    As for TG, I'm sure from a business stand point they would be aware and want to approve it's 'standing' as you call it, but alas, I am just a super minion and not privy to all the going ons. As for advertisement, I'm not the person to ask on that. An ad brought me to this game and I obviously haven't left several years later, therefore, I try to stay away from game ads. Sure I see them but I try not to take too much notice for fear I might find another addiction to my computer. I know Travian has a facebook page although I have not seen an advertisement for Travian in years, like you said.... I have no answer for you there.

    No, I know you probably don't know. I'm not sure if they're seeing a diminishing return on investment, or what, but I was hoping someone could come up with a plausible theory, maybe.

    We're both answering you, but I don't think we're the ones having an issue.

    If you want to start a thread with a particular topic, go right ahead, but another thread on the same topic in a forum is always a problem, even the topicless threads.

    I'm actually looking forward to a bar and grill thread. Where the heck is Kurtz with that burger anyway?

    The problem with the forum decline is easy enough to understand. Most of the mods here take their jobs too seriously, and while they will break rules, they will ban for the slightest reasons and erase sigs and threads on a whim. Mods also gun for the members they have a personal dislike for instead of doing what's best for the community. I used to be pretty active on here, now I stop in for reports I might have missed.

    I find this theory hard to believe seeing as if a mod did punish for something not warranted it would be reversed, a thread closed that shouldn't have been... it would be reopened. As for mods breaking the rules if you have specific examples I'm sure Bella would like to see them.

    The lounges were made to keep everything off topic/not related to the server in one thread. Allowing there to be several lounges defeats that purpose; if it was allowed there could be five new "off topic randomness" threads a day. I'm not sure why this is so difficult to understand or is making people so upset.

    If you wanted a thread with a topic but isn't related to s5 in any way, you can do that in the dump.

    Edit:

    As for mods not following the rules, report the rule breaking posts like you do for any other member.

    Steph already admitted that the mods are picking and choosing which rules to follow, in the section of the rule that she herself highlighted.

    And what have I to be defensive about? I asked a simple question and it took everyone but the person I posed the question to in order to get an answer. I know there are many dense posters here on the forum but I'm not one that will fall for deflecting one's own shortcomings when you say things like " Maybe I'm not the one that's defensive." My intent was never to argue or insult you Steph, but your knee jerk " Oh, my God I'm being attacked (not true)!!! My infallible wisdom is being questioned!!!" response took the discussion to an ugly place, one that I'll now be leaving.

    Say what you want, I won't dispute it. I have immense respect for Flossie and won't muddy up her wonderful creation any longer.

    For anyone wondering Steph=Slippery lol..... Thought I ought to point that out since a lot of people don't know my name, not that I care to hide it but please use caution when using a forum members name, it is actually against the rules unless the user doesn't mind.

    As far as the lounges are concerned, between my explanations and Conundrums, if you have any other questions, comments or concerns on the topic please pm them to him or I.

    I am not grumpy! I am a COL (Cranky Old Lady) in training get it right. Actually I am very hard to offend, just ask Kurtz or JB, I was just letting you know what era of pg13 was generally safe. Somethings which are pg13 these days, will get you cautioned or banned depending on which mod sees it.

    Edit: I was thinking the same thing Erik.

    Also, the rule you posted would make it against the rules for Flossie to have more than one lounge on the entire forum. Not that I'm advocating that at all.
    Are you trying to get me in trouble here?!?

    Also, I would really like to know what the heck happened. Did a huge influx of players cause issues? Did having tens of thousands of players on a server with at least thousands buying gold regularly cost Travian games to lose money? WTH?



    The topic of the thread is there is no topic. Why would you generate a new thread without a specific topic when there is one already?



    I'll take a mushroom and swiss burger with a Guinness on the side. American or french fries, whichever you call them over there, on the side.
    Sorry Kurtz can not comply, his bar and grill will not be opening....he is tied up elsewhere, since the prospect of his promising to love and adore kittens in a proper fashion are exceedingly dim, I suggest you order your food in the lounge. The food and drink are better anyway and I am prettier.

    Fair enough. I just didn't want to get a ban card before I could really warm up after coming back.

    I suppose it is enhancing the freemium business model, driving up gold sales by keeping more people around.

    :|

    I still wouldn't mind a cutthroat game of Travian with a minimum buy-in or something.

    I don't think it worked for them, they drove a lot of real gold buyers away. I know I tended to spend more on a t3.6 or earlier game than I do on these newer ones. I also only play these newer versions because of friends, not because the ins and outs of the game intrigue me.

    I think a game of Travian with an upfront entrance fee with no gold afterward could be very very interesting.

    I've just talked to someone that came to Travian recently due to an ad.

    Also... wasn't sure you'd get it Flossie... being you and all.

    Well for Black Friday, I'll be at work at the animal hospital, seeing if I win the pool on the number of "dietary indiscretion" cases that come in.

    So, are adventures largely resource reward oriented? I'm not complaining, I moved my champ to my new 15c cap just a little bit ago, and I'm loving that my hero is basically doubling the resources my cap is getting.

    They are random, but it does seem to be resource focused.

    Get your game talk out of Flossie's lounge you heathen scum!

    Resources are the most common, but what is really interesting is how powerful heroes actually are. If you stick all your hero points into fighting strength, you can basically clear oases with no troops even at endgame. The resource bonus is kind of okish early on, but you're missing out on all those yummy maces you can kill and then pick up their loot rather than just letting the hero "sim".

    I could raid, but I kinda promised I wouldn't. I spend a lot of time checking in, but that's about all I really want to focus on. I start raiding, and all of a sudden I'm trying to stay awake 24/7. It's somewhat of a slippery slope for me.

    You should join us in Herpes! Our war with the Natar is one good way of avoiding raiding (although we keep getting medals for that, wtf), attacking (more medals here, too) and defending (wtf, medals here too!).
    Anyway, come join us! We use in-game forums and everything!

    Raiding with T4 lists isn't really raiding.

    Raiding before T4 was both tedious and awful.

    You aren't helping my cause. I'm just glad my fiance doesn't browse this forum.

    You aren't helping either.

    Also, how can spreadsheets ever be tedious? Awful I can understand, you must not have set everything up right.

    I've done rather well avoiding herpes, I'm not sure I want to start now.

    Also, a lot of climber medals. Like, Lots.
