New to zam/ soon to be ffxiv player.Follow

Hello, just making an intro post.
I'm KekkaishiDarkness
This will be my player name in ffxiv (at least I hope.)
I'm a long time mmo player since MUD. I played ffxi and have enjoyed my time. Made some nice memories, but I think it was time for me to move on. I currently do not play ffxiv. I will be one of those ps3 players (my PC is not fit to play ffxiv.) This is my second post My first one was in Crafters and you. Boy that was an intersting read, minus the posters personally attacking each other.
Some basic Info: I'm old, female, lover of anime, lover of mmorpg.
One thing I hate is crude behavior. (I'm a nanny)
I do have a question, I notice the update to ffxiv, how is the game so far since the update?

Welcome to the game K :) I too am a long time MUD/MMO player (even run my own MUD still).

I find the game has improved since the update, but there are still some glitches from the new update.

The patcher is really horrible. You are better off finding the .torrent file in your My Documents/My Games/Final Fantasy XIV/downloads/ffxiv/wierdnumberhere/patches directory and opening that with a torrent downloader like utorrent. It will go much faster.

If you're looking for a linkshell, I'm in a pretty nice one, so far no vulgarity, which is something I watch out for as well. It's called Divine Order and we're on Cornelia. My character's name is Dirk Saedar, and the leader of the ls is called Heaven Night.

If there's anything I can do to help your transition into FFXIV any smoother please let me know. I am usually online evenings from 5pm EST until 8pm EST.

Take care!

Hi Irish. How you doing? Good good. Why the new name? Oh the mods banded you? Good good good. Hope this name works out for you.

To anyone that falls for this check out Crafters and you. This is the same poster that spent a day batting then reporting people for not agreeing with her/his opinion. Started to clame people where attacking him/her when people where only stating there opinion on the matter.

Welcome and some extremely useful advices for you:

1) Dont let the color of others names dictate what you think and what you want to say, the karma system is just an excuse for bashing others as you will see further that no thread in allakazham (zam) goes without someone trolling or baiting for a flame war. Some of the colored dudes deserve the excellent by their name but most of them just pay to be able to say crap towards anyone.

2) Read 1 again, dont be afraid to express your opinions, though this forum has an overall great community there are people here who gets the best part of their lives rating others down. Try to ignore the trolls as much as you can if you ever want a thread created by you to stay on subject.

3) Enjoy and remember this is just a game forum, not your honor at stake.

Hi, and totally like, welcome!

I'm not big on vulgarity either although you couldn't pay me enough to be a nanny. unless it was a nanny for fish, since they're pretty quiet for the most part.

I'm having trouble grasping the changes, myself. On the surface everything looks and functions like it did before, but the details are different and it's taking me some getting used to. So far, I'd say it's pretty good! But I *hate* the new sound for a synth failure. Minor, but annoying since I'm going to hear it a *lot*.

First off witch hunts are never needed, and i'm sure fall under personal attacks. As i'm not doing anything to provoke you into being, well a bully. Your entilited to your opinion as i'm entitled to ignore it. I actually read that thread in full. That person whom you assume to me being stated her opinion first, which was then raged at like a class of first graders. And I feel in no way that everyone should have called said poster stupid, when it was those raging on her were imature. And if the mods fail seeing that but A first time poster can. Then mods fail at keep this site safe and pleasent.
I also know who I am, and I'm the only one who cares about that. Maybe focus on what I said both here and crafters, rather then who you think I am.
Also side topic, How was everyones holiday? Mine was decent, my cousin brought over his baby who was ill. She did nothing but scream her head off. I ended up telling him to go, because she was too sick. I can't afford to be sick.

FYI the Mods and Admins have tools that track IPs that you have logged into for each account. Assuming it's like VBulletin then if I were to log in and post, and my wife had an account and she logged into hers and posted it would create a thread in a mod only forum saying so. At which point the mods/admins would have to decide if it's a legit dual IP or a sock or worse. Granted there are ways around like posting from your phone, or library, and IP masking tool,or a friends house... eventually you will forget and log into a game with your old IP and be caught.

What I'm saying is, this may well be Irish. The posting style is very familiar. Some similar grammar and spelling patterns. HOWEVER let the mods do their jobs, we can do ours by rating up helpful posts, not rating so-so posts, and defaulting crap posts... Oh and enjoying the forums!

Im just having fun now. And I know this is Irish. For the love of god she attacked the mods in the Crafters and you post calling them out to step down as mods becuse of what they "Did to pore Irish. Anyone who was a part of that post can see who this is.

I really don't care what the out come of this is. I am just having fun with the jerk who reported us as attacking for not agreeing with his/her opinion.

Sorry for the errors, I type and eat at the same time. As that is only time I can post. I also seen others who have errors in their typing. Thanks for the welcomes. As I stated before, maybe focus what I actually post, rather then who you assume I am. I'm not or have attacked anyone yet. But seems others feel they need to bully me. After this post I'm going to ignore all of those posts about assuming I'm that other poster. Try to live in the now, rather then the past.
Back on topic, I personally can't wait for ffxiv. I hope to use this forum to get as much info about the game, as well current events of the game.
Like how the updates change, stuff being added etc etc.

Sethern, it's the moderator's duty to pick out socks and get rid of them. Not yours. If you feel that Kekkashi is a sock, report it and leave it at that. Otherwise, you become the problem for stalking and harassing members.

on topic: OP thank you for that post. When i play this game I'd do some crafting to help others out.
Off topic: @ other posters: i think you guys were to harsh. Just because they didn't get what you guys were saying, don't mean you can make personal attacks. But all and all everyone is entited to their opinion.
@ the mods... I think you guys should step down, from what i See that person PM you having issues with said posters. And you bring those PM here. Aren't mods suppose to be unbais or don't take sides? Bringing in those PM an imature move. And from what I gather. said person didn't start anything it was everyone else. But i digress.
Back on topic: What is the typical repair fee? I want to know before joining. So I know what to charge and ask for when i need it.


Just look at what was said. First off anyone whe was in this thread knows darn good and well Irish was not attacked only his/her opinion. And Im sorry but the only one who defend Irish like this is Irish.
#17 Nov 26 2010 at 12:00 PM Rating: Decent
From what I got, the poster you think i am, made their opinion. Then everyone made sure to put her opinion down with theirs. Something happen and did stuff I would never do. I assume she reported those calling her stupid, a child, a first grader. As I did saw those before posting. You guys have free speech, but to go out of your way to call someone such insults is a bit of a low blow. And not something I enjoyed reading. Even further with the mods joining in on it was too much. I made my opinion just like everyone did. But I also asked a simple question. Which was not even replied to. Question was: What is the typical fee i am expected to pay for repairs? I have no issue paying this fee. I feel its more then fair as you everyone in that thread stated, you guys do the work and deserve to get paid for it.

To sethern79
I seen a lot of posts saying otherwise, caller her Stupid, calling her a child, and calling her a first grader. Just for having a different opinion. And in no way I said her opinion was right or wrong, nor am I defending her or what happen to her. I just hate seeing that happen period. I'm not sure how a forum mod/ admin is suppose to act like. MUD mods/admin wouldn't stand for currently going on. What groumds do you few poster have for stalking me? What have I said to you personally, or in general. I'm also a nanny, I call out on bad behavior out of habit.

Sadly, K, welcome to Zam.

Moderators, USUALLY have a more neutral stance on things, though of late, I'm guessing the negativity of FFXIV has gotten them a bit more agitated of late. (Though some of the mods are reletively new faces.)

Vulgarity isn't really used in excess, but the constant hounding and flaming, sadly, is a common thing. Expect feuds to cross posts (and sometimes sections) and people trying to codify the common opinion. At least until the game settles down enough to weed those who really are not interested in the game and community to realize such and leave.

Honestly, that's what I'm waiting on now: For the dust to settle. It probably won't happen till about August. That said, this place grows on you like a tough mold. Once you settle in here, you just can't get it out of your system. Both to its credit and its fault.

Can't tell you much about the updates to FFXIV, haven't gotten it downloaded yet. (Turkey Day hibernation lead right into work time.) Honestly, I don't know if I'll be playing long term. Not due to enjoyability or lack there of, but simply due to a lack of money. Which is a pity cause I enjoy a lot of this game so far.

I feel for you hyst. I noticed that myself. And I hope you are right. I'm just siting and waiting for the ps3 version. Currently playing ffxi and Fable 3. Might get Sims 3 soon. I'm just trying to have an enjoyable time here, meet new people so I'm not going into ffxiv feeling lost and alone. I did that for WoW and Aion and quit with in weeks. Anyway, I got to get ready for work. The family I currently work for needed me today. ( booo ) Thanks for those who welcome me, to those who feel to witch hunt me, save your energy and just ignore me if you don't like me. But know that you started it not myself. :)

Still not sure what my feelings on Aion are, or MMO's in general now. The community, especially back in the MUD Days was far less negative than it is today. Even with the flashy graphics and the good music, it just seems like the bad, or overly dedicated players nowadays exist to bring everyone else down, to make themselves feel more valid.

I know it sounds carebearish, and mopey, but I've spent a lot of time looking at game communities lately, and there's really nowhere to go without seeing someone wanting to pick a fight over really pointless things. When coming home from work in customer service, the last thing you want to hear more of is people whining and complaining, or telling you how horrible something is while you're (trying to) enjoy it yourself.
