I guess people forget this isn't a democracy. It is a public forum and project headed by a volunteer group (STAFF/Devs).

The polls, from what I understand, were to gather opinions. In the first poll, they (STAFF/Devs) clearly realized they hadn't provided enough information and decided to give us a second chance.

The second poll was far more detailed, unfortunately trolls, children, and multiple account spammers ruined it for the rest of us (as detailed in the OP). The community, as mentioned earlier, really showed its colors.

They haven't spelled doom out to us. They have just chosen to wait a couple more months for a wipe, which was the plan the entire time anyways. I hate to sound like a fanboy, but seriously, some of you are just being silly.

And to top it all off, I don't even remember them promising a wipe if the majority voted yes. I seem to recall it was more of a "we will only wipe if the majority is 66% or higher to do it." I don't remember, "we will, most certainly, wipe the server if the majority to do so is 66% or higher."

And by the way, this is nothing compared to SOE's disasters. Think back. Those of you who decided to keep playing through the CU might just remember a certain poll for the NGE. See how well that went? lol

Im pissed because they promised a wipe if the majority got the vote, the vast majority got it, and instead of keeping the promise, they tell us "Nevermind"...
Guess I won't play a game that has **** all over it.

Once it's wiped I'll be back.

Anyone who reaches me ingame on Seaweed can have all my "NON"duped money.

Therefore, due to voting disparities with new accounts, adverse affect on the community of the polling process, and unaddressed issues, we are calling off the poll and the possibility of a wipe. We will stick to the original statement and wipe for the OR when the time comes. As always, we are committed to providing you all with a solid community and game environment. We thought that holding this poll would give the community a voice and a chance at a little more participation.

What we now realize is it may cause more damage then good in the end. To our entire community, we are sorry if this poll in any way affected you adversely, and we will assure you that a similar situation will not happen in the future.

The SWGEmu Team.
It's a sad day when those of us that got what we have the right way have to play in an environment where dupers have ruined the economy of the game and we have to pay the consequences. I'm dissapointed that those that did this have gotten what they wanted with absolutely no repercussions whatsoever and will be able to continue their ruination of the game until the OR. We had the chance to fix it and could not pull together enough to get it done.

Posting a thread with a poll and then disregarding it isn't anything but the facade of considering the community's opinions.

From another point of view, whining majority lost. So what?
I'm happy with the outcome that the Devs let the dead horse be the dead horse and continue with OR.
Because all effort putting in the work for the wipe will now return to where it should be first place. And in the end we just ALL win. Plain and simple.

The effort to wipe the server isn't really time consuming. So if they went with it, it wouldn't have interfered with the OR.

Hey at least they let us vote before telling us our opinion doesn't matter.

I guess thats kind of a step up from SOE right?

I wonder whats gonna happen in the future if a few people decide they want Jedi to be a starting class and the majority of the community votes against it....

The sad thing is that I bet after all the madness the devs will not be as willing to have a community poll about such an important decision.

We won nothing except a screwed up economy where no one but the ones that duped credits/items can afford to buy what is needed.
