    Why am I not surprised that it is @Zoe who has and posts the current and relevant information?



    Would sure be great if that was posted on the English Forum in a timely manner.

    Or is she posting "unofficial" information?

    I think we all know what the answer is............
    Good night.
    Sleep well.
    I'll most likely kill you in the morning.

    As you know, I am the only guy holding down the fort, I had quite a busy day today.
    I posted the storm downtime announcement but read over the one that you mentioned here.

    But yes, Storm will get updated tomorrow and start on the 18th of February

    We DO get that you are a one man band here @Poseidon X Angel , well maybe 1.33 when @Crom Cruach pops in for a visit.  That is kind of the point.

    The English Forum is clearly NOT a priority for GGS.  IF it was, there would be more support for it.........

    I wouldn't blame this on the English forum, it's a problem that's seen in other places too. It's not easy to find someone who fits the needs. Heck, I probably fell short on a few points too!
  • they added anime by accident and gotta do it again  :(
      not anime - Hentai >:)

    My point about @Crom Cruach not making the announcements is still valid.  @Poseidon X Angel being a volunteer means to me that GGE/Forums are not his top priority, and as such should not be expected to handle announcements in a timely manner by GGE.  That should be a GGE employee's duty.

    I can only say that the impression I get(and I assume many others get) is that we on this forum are a second thought at best, particularly when it comes to information.  Other forums always seem to have more information that is accurate and sooner than we get anything posted here.  I find this curious since english is the most dominant language in the world.

    As for the SI update itself, it is what it is - new bugs included.  Not holding my breath, anticipating or dreading what the update will bring as any of that would be a waste of energy and brain cells.

    I think we all know what the answer is............
    Since I was named... I guess it's time I comment on this... 

    It's important to keep in mind that moderators are volunteers and we all do it in our free time - all of us try our best to provide you with as much info as we can, as soon as we can. But we do have our own responsibilities which usually come first (we can't tell our teacher/employer "Second, I need to post announcement").

    Also you may notice the announcement you screenshoted was posted about an hour and half after the comment of Crom you quoted, so he simply provided you with info he had at the time he wrote the comment (and you knew that earlier than any other community)... 


    With discord, whichever mod who sees the announcement first posts it - there are quite a lot of us, so it's always likely it will be a few mins earlier on discord than on most forums, as it's simply given by the fact there are more people to do it and there's higher chance some of them will have a free minute at the time we get a "green light" for publishing.

    With this specific announcement, I don't think it matters that much if you get it immediatelly or a few hours later  when the person - doing this in their free time to help you all - has time to post it, since no matter if you know at 11am or 3pm, it's still quite a while before the events mentioned in the announcement take place.

    Me being currently able to post announcements quite soon is given by the fact I had a break (while we have covid restrictions, so I can't really live my normal - offline - life the way I'd like) and even now, I am having online school which usually let's me be online at most times.
    It is not always the case and sometimes there's a very short notice before hotfix, and it has indeed happened before that we were not able to post it on our forum in time (and there are 4 cz/sk mods, not just one - it can still happen) - we try our best, just like Poseidon, but we're not perfect.

    And honestly... just join discord and take it as an opportunity to get to some announcements a little bit earlier - there's an invitation link on forums, everyone is welcome; look at it as something that should help you all to get in touch with us/GGS more.
    It's not meant to be a source of negative energy and if you all have issue with the announcements being there earlier, we may as well wait for them being posted on all forums first - and given some mods will be only able to post them after a few hours, it would be quite a shame, wouldn't it?
  • flug (NL1)flug (NL1) NL1 Posts: 1,441
    that's the problem, GGS hiding behind volunteers.
    no-one to hold responsable . 
    yes some volunteers.

    would be very nice if GGS ould not only be telling that there will be an update but also what the update looks like, what are the changes going to be?

    gettin gplayers informed the right way  gives a lot more understandig from players to GGS when things get delayed, i think

    We agree that it would be nice if we could share the update notes earlier, we asked if this was possible yesterday.
    Unfortunately we aren't allowed to.

    @Zoe As always, thanks for stopping by and posting!  You are always welcome here.  :)

    I wasn't going to mention this, but now I feel I need to, just to highlight a point.

    I posted the "Zoe" notice and this was @Crom Cruach 's reply:

    @Wasso (INT3) I think it's time you stepped up to become a moderator. The announcement will be up shortly!

    As of this moment, that announcement that the current ETA is 2/18 still has not been posted.  Sure, it is here in this thread.  But, that isn't the same thing.  Neither does it match with the expected "up shortly!".

    I know that @Poseidon X Angel has a life and this Forum shouldn't be his #1 focus.  But, when certain indications are made that are then not met, does cause a bit of frustration.  He HAS posted other announcements since that time, so the opportunity was there.  Expectations postponed, ya know?

    Side note to Crom, no I am not a SECRET axe murderer.............

    Good night.
    Sleep well.
    I'll most likely kill you in the morning.
