  1. You can ignroe this. I am just testing how the final scroll will embed.
  2. I’ll type up my thoughts Sunday when I get back from NH, but I want to clear up something that I think might be misunderstood: If we retire SK, we aren’t going to disband. For those of you who are mostly burned out with the game, we’d stick around in-game to putter along, and still have the discord and forums up for social stuff and game nights and all that. But it wouldn’t be as an alliance with recruitment, aggressive growth strategies, or any real military planning. Obviously no good for anyone who still wants to take the game seriously and make something of themselves, but we aren’t talking about closing the doors and everybody goes their separate ways. The community will stick around as long as people still like talking to each other. But it won’t be as a competitive PW alliance. also for anyone who is still around next month and is interested, I will be sending out a little gift bag of some kind to all members to celebrate our 10 year anniversary on March 15th. It won’t be anything big - likely a small printed scroll with a message from me, and some magnets and a keychain with the SK symbols (old and new). I remember we gave away magnets with the flag a while ago and that was fairly popular.
  3. We definitely need to open up a discussion with the members and get some honest talk about what this alliance actually means to itself. If people still want to try and be a real alliance, even quasi-competitively (tier 2 maybe, not as a tier 1 AA for the foreseeable future), they are going to have to be willing to step up and put in the work for that in the gov departments. If nobody wants to do that, then we have to accept the reality that SK as anything more than a social organization is done. I'm fine with that, if that's where we've come. I just hope we don't get the same old 'SK needs more activity and better gov, but I won't be putting anything towards that.' We'll see. If there are enough people who want to put the effort in, then we can try again and see what happens. But if not, I don't really have a problem with stopping active recruitment and just sort of puttering on. We just need to be honest with ourselves and the world that we are mostly just friends hanging out - and not be like UPN and retain any delusions that we are still a major AA. I think it's fine to be a retirement casual AA as long as everyone is clear about it. We'll see what happens, but that is almost certainly the route we end up taking. I do understand the fears that if we try and reform again with a new gov, that it will still fail in the end. But if it does, it does. It doesn't really put us anywhere other than back where we are now. If there are enough members who honestly want to give it a try, I'd say go for it, whatever the odds. But realistically we likely aren't going to go that path. I still plan on sending out some trinkets or stickers or something to all the remaining members come our 10 year anniversary in march, with something special for the few remaining peeps who I feel have contributed a lot to SK over the years.

  6. It's hard to say for me honestly. I definitely do not like big cities. Visiting, sure. I loved being in Tokyo but needed to get out after a while. Never cared for New York. I did love living in Boston and Montreal, so I guess as long it wasn't super dense and had distinct cultural neighborhoods, I could do it. Really if I could live anywhere it would probably be near Portland Maine because my inclination for the outdoors and having more outdoor space of my own outweighs my desire to be back in either of those cities. Someday we'll have teleporters and can have all the convenience of big city access and rural space and nature. Until then I guess I'll go with the smaller town.

  10. Things got very side tracked, but we are close to being done. The heraldry is in, and final touches are being put on a flag version for in-game. Medal designs for awards are being worked on, though may come after the launch of everything else. Regarding the changes in this thread, I am finishing the system to automatically track your points based on awards, gov ranks, and based on forum activity (tracking posts, with different values depending on post length). The only thing I need help with is coming up with point values for everything. I am tentatively working on a point system that I can post in a few days, but in the meantime if anybody is still interested in this, I would love your input. Even just a general sense of 'this award should be worth more than others. Gov titles should be ranked high or not', etc.
