felinids

Postby Arathian » Sun Aug 25, 2019 4:02 am #509860

Felinid probation is ending this November. If you get elected headmin, what will you try to do?

Remove them without a vote? Add them without a vote? Hold another vote?

What would be your personal best scenario?

It's kinda silly, but a lot of players have cat characters that are dear to them so that's an important question for them.

another vote. we must let the people decide what is best for them. they will likely choose horribly and be stuck with their choice, but at least they have the satisfaction of knowing they had a say in the matter
I play as Luke Gadow, full-time spaceman.
Vote me for headmin.

Thanks for the question, Arathian!

Well if I get elected and we get to the issue of Felines.

I will do nothing and will keep them as an old-player mark.

This would be up to my fellow headmins.

I would love to re-enable them temporarily so the new players get access to them.

My opinion is that, in roleplay, more freedom of choice leads to more creativity leads to a more fun environment.
However, I recognize that a sizable portion of players is against felinids and admins should uphold player will in Policy questions whenever possible so I'd leave it up to an ingame vote.

Vote again, a lot of newer players have voiced their disdain with the result of the previous vote. This one would be a permanent turnoff of the vote gains a 60% majority against.

I am currently going by the current vote, which was that people didn't want them. However, we all know this gets voted on each year, so who knows. Maybe people wanna be cat people again.
I'm open to it, but I'm not gonna try to bend the vote to get cats back in.

they cause too much controversy for my liking. the current compromise we have is perfectly fine. i'm not going to stop the players if they vote again AND want them back in, but i just don't like them personally

A simple yes or no vote to see if they should be readded, if no the status quo stays.

Yes/no vote. With the phrasing properly thought out this time to remove ambiguity. As well as talking to oranges about adding any other races he might be thinking of but ultimately its his call as the codebase owner.

I agree with the previous, a very straightforward vote.

A previous vote had four options, only one of them included keeping felinids in, the rest promised other races to take their place. When you dangle something like that in front of players, you're stacking the odds against the felinids in the first place.

If people want them out, best to just ask them straight up.

Conflicted. There's been a few instances where cats were able to be chosen again due to bugs or changing of the configs for a short period of time. Also, the people who wanted cats out of their game still have a fuck ton of legacy cat players running around so they kinda lost that war.

Everyone says they are going to do a vote so sure that I guess. Maybe that will finally put it to bed for real since the last vote sucked kinda. I kinda expect cats to just win though and they are already all over our server to be honest. I like it when cat players wag their tails. If it loses, just keep the status quo as usual or if there's a real push, I guess take them away but I don't really like seeing any side unhappy but I guess someone has to lose in a poll.

Change in Policy since apparently the candidate I thought was doing it wasn't so I might have imagined it

There will be a vote for Cat-girls.

The voting options will be

1. Keep them as an old nerd badge. This ticking time bomb will only get better with features like cat-girl instant death from chocolate.

2. Have them available to be picked every april 4th and then close them again.

This is my stance

Anti-Catgirls are lame. Cat-Girl mains are not epic and they need to watch better anime

Shadowflame out

Edit: I just went slots lower in everyone's poll because this isn't actually significantly pleasing to anyone. Honk.

we should force everyone to play a disgusting amalgam race that contains a genetic slurry of every species and bodyparts from every species so that every race is equal and we fix the felinid problem
