Returning Player, Maybe Many Questions

Postby Griffith on May 14th, 2017, 1:28 am

I've been away for... Let's say a long time. Like seven years. Is there an overarching plot going on? I ask because a lot of locations on the forums say "closed." Is there a reason for that?

Welcome back. The closed cities are closed because there's no one to moderate them, unfortunately.

Oh dear. Can one get a global moderator to rate threads there, or are they just cut off forever and/or until mods are found? Also, coming back after being away a long time. Is there a way to "retrain" your base character if you no longer like them?

You cannot have activity in a closed forum of any kind until a moderator volunteers for it and it reopens.

Okay. Am I allowed to essentially restart this character, but keep this account? Or is there nothing like that?

I don't think you can restart the character after 50 posts, so you'll likely have to make a new one.

Argh. I remember a rule like that, now you mention it. No way the mods can make an exception since I've been gone for so long? Not looking to keep any past xp or anything, but my vision of this character has changed considerably over the years, so the ability to rewrite him would be appreciated.

Look.

I'm utterly stunned you'd thoughtlessly request this. This is something horribly selfish you ask. You want to be treated with favoritism over EVERY player that's been here active this whole time or at least far longer than you have. Why should we make an exception just because YOUR VISION for your PC is such that it demands it? Everyone else understands that one person can't grade, run threads, approve storylines, give jobs, pay jobs, and basically DS for EVERY domain in the game that doesn't have a moderator already doing that. Yea... I'm that ONE person. I tired to do it for a while and it killed me because I had zero time to get anything else done.

Other players understand how difficult this is and adjust their concepts and history or plans accordingly. If you are unwilling to do this then I don't think Miz is the site for you.

Um... A simple "sorry, no" would have sufficed? I wanted confirmation from a mod that it wasn't a thing that could be done is all. Apparently asking for confirmation merits hurling insults now.

And again, I've been away for a long time. I don't know the state of things. My apologies that you are apparently the only mod left, but I didn't know that.

You were clearly told... by other players... that you can't restart a PC after 50 posts. You didn't take no for an answer.

I simply CLARIFIED that no you can't be an exception. And yes, the only universal moderators are Founders and of the original 6 creators, I'm the one remaining active. Regional Storytellers are universal for their regions, but they will not allow people to RP in closed areas.

I'm not 'hurling insults'. I'm simply telling you that NO, you will not be treated as the exception and why. It's my my problem that you can't accept no first by players then by a site owner.

Again, Miz might not be the best fit for you. Other sites cater to people who want to freestyle RP outside of set standard very fair rules.
