Lonn I too regret sending several of my characters to the recycle bin. I am very much with you on just announcing a ding and having all of us who followed the spirit of the rules given another character slot. Those of you who exploited the system with using multiple NWN login to circumvent the rules in place you're outta luck on this one!I love the idea of having a 2 month (maybe 3 month) gap from one submission to the next. I think that is a fantastic way to help ease the burden on CA's Is it a server lag issue if we had 12 characters? What was the reason for the rule being set at 6?

Also I do not want to have to deal with getting a character approved for her. It becomes a huge deal and just leads to frustration.
I had heard that it had changed a bit. But you would have to know our daughter... she plays Minecraft with her brother on Xbox and had a melt down because she died and dropped all of her things. No way I want to deal with her loosing a SS. It would be much worse than me loosing one.
Actually I had someone else in mind, but thanks for adding to my list. *winks*
Sorry Chongo... I call em like I see em.
I like Milty's idea. I think that the choir is confusing it with shutting down the persistence of the servers when it's really just internal outreach to get little adventuring companies planned amongst old friends. Let it occur in these little groups and empower them. I don't think anyone is talking about old school quests with 30 people. Empower small groups to do their own thing and use the server actively for small-group plot and dynamic. Give them an interesting and easy avenue to start up and have things more interesting than 7 days of rat killing in tattered cloths whilst trying to have an adventure together that rivals the other things available elsewhere.
I know this thread is about what we could do better, and there have been many great ideas including some of my own But I thought I'd take the opportunity to praise something that I think has greatly improved. I recently submitted a new character submission for a darkelf and I was surprised at the quick treatment. I was expecting to hear something in about a week, but got a response in only about an hour. It was very brief and to the point. Giving me feedback on gaps in my application regarding LORE. I quickly made the suggested corrections and it was approved that day. Much improved from my previous experiences.Thank you Gilshem!
He can do this now. In a way, he already is doing this now. It is an option, not the only option. Yeah, we're saying the same thing on that (try not to fall over dead). Some people will like it. Others won't.
As I look for my old disk...this popped in my head. Maybe a link on the home page where new players can buy and download the game right then?
With a page of detailed step-by-step instructions about where and how to find the files for NWN to patch it up to the final version (including links to where the NWN Critical Rebuild can be downloaded), as well as where to find the Layonara specific HAK files and how to install them too, right?
