    Community Manager should lock his own thread since its going nowhere and you're abusing your powers.

    Hi Dreamweaver, Welcome aboard.
    I noticed quite a number of people asked about transferring characters to other accounts and thus far this has not been answered by anyone at Daybreak (and you seem to have avoided the question too) as to why we are not allowed to use this service anymore. I have many active accounts and two more FTP accounts just waiting for this service so that I can move a few characters around. The change happened after a series of bans for people breaking rules so not sure if this was the trigger, however NO-ONE has ever been given a reason (good or bad) why this service was withdrawn. For long time players like myself (20+ years) that bot, I do not want to have to go through the hassle of making new characters when i have great characters that I invested time and and now cannot use. Please, please get this service back so I can spend more of my hard earned money on subs.

    This is like saying "I have the palate of a 12-year old". I would know. It was my favorite when I was 12, before I stopped eating garbage.

    So you're telling me that I'm more qualified for your job than you? Because I also played many of those games, and my heart lies with EQ, or I wouldn't be here saying this. Anyway, color me unimpressed.

    You lost the popular vote. #notmycommunitymanager.

    You can start by getting rid of all the AFK farmers and bots on the Firiona Vie server. All of the REAL players will thank you. Including myself. Ask me if you want the names of all the bots and AFK farmers, I know them well.

    Hi Dream, myself also a huge Gaimen fan of that world. Ahh, to , nvm..
    The reply above, is truly the root of all evil playerside. It followed into the TLPs manifested into guilds.
    Are we allowed to have this discussion with you? For there are so many theories wild in speculation as to why things are the way they are. Are you here to address and hopefully we find solutions? or is this not in your scope and we still not allowed to talk about it.

    Oh and welcome btw, 8)

    As in anything there will likely be things that we can't discuss but I am always here to listen. I will say something I learned a long time ago, and this is in reference to many, many situations. Context is always important in any given situation.

    If somewhere there exists a solution for anything that gets discussed on forums that I can talk about or weigh in on, I will. That's part of my job, and I want to know what's going on with the players and their experiences while playing the game.

    Thanks for the welcome, I am excited to get to know all of you.

    Until you get the conventions back and show up each year in a new, elaborately designed dwarf costume you made yourself then you're an imposter.

    Sewing will be the easy part, the beard and alcohol tolerance will take some work.
    (see? you shoulda been a gnome so you could rise above this).
  12. Majin-ryokoryu New Member

    No, see then I woulda demanded he show up in a clockwork walker he made himself.
  13. dreamweaver Community Manager

    Oh, I got the beard and the second part covered.

    No, we love them. Go away with your tears.

    Now that all of the not-community managers have had a chance to speculate on the status of this functionality, debate the validity of the question, and generally not move the needle on getting an answer, is there any chance Dreamweaver can ask around the office and get us an official status?*

    Should unban all the forum accounts and wipe the slate clean. Sure, spammers are in there, but unlikely those accounts are ever logged in again. But there were a LOT of people banned for no real good reason over a period of about a year, maybe 4? 5? years ago, and the forums lost a lot of posters, traffic, parsers, analysis, etc, in the process.

    But how about the following changes:

    If an account is suspended/banned, you can still log in and like, see the reason why, and send a PM to red names to actually appeal, versus not being able to do anything or know anything. Lock the ability to post, not the ability to read anything on the forums at all without clearing your cookies.

    Oh, and actually read and respond to appeals versus waiting until 30 days after the suspension has already passed to reply with a cut and paste from forum rules, not referencing whatever you supposedly said, and ignoring anything the person wrote.

    And monitor abuse of the report function. For awhile, ANY time someone hit that button, with nothing wrong or against the rules, people getting things deleted.

    In the words of a famous video game character....

    "Fresh Meat!!"

    Good thing we don't play that game here!
    Welcome to the jungle. Next year you will be able to drink with my characters as they will be old enough....

    So Dreamweaver can you please confirm that the account to account transfer service is one of those things you can't discuss, because all I'm seeing is you ignoring the request for information. if you are not able to comment, can you please let us know who we can contact to try and get this resolved. It's the one thing that makes me upset about EQ and makes me think about deactivating most of my accounts.
  19. dreamweaver Community Manager

    I can't confirm I can't discuss it. I am waiting for more information before I give an answer. I'd prefer to give an accurate one.
  20. Tucoh Augur

    I have no information to back this up but the rumor is that account to account transfers are on hold because of a dupe-exploit was found (or was known and they always knew about it, lol) and fixing it while also streamlining the account to account transfers are too expensive.

    I'm surprised it's taken this long because assuming it only takes a few minutes to transfer a char it's just almost pure profit.
