Guys: Is this a CU anniversary joke? I'm beginning to think it might actually be.

I'd rather know them for who they are then by what they do or what they believe in.

As much as I would have liked to see a wipe, we gotta remember one thing: we aren't paying for this game. We aren't paying for TC. The devs (whether we think this latest move right or wrong) are letting us play on TC because *they* chose to do so.

We make a big enough stink, and they could just chose to *not* let us do so.

Like it or not, we are guests in their home, and should act like it. Let's not let this whole thing blow up to the point that they just close TC to public use.

It is reasonable to assume that vote padding occurred on both sides. EVEN IF that 15% of the "yes" vote was padded and 0% of the "no" vote was padded, there was STILL a majority of people in favor of wiping the server! More likely is that the padding occurred equally on both sides, and "yes" votes still DOUBLED "no" votes.

Quote:
And yes voters would have incentive to dupe votes to make sure the wipe went through.
Which side, do you think, would have a greater portion of its votes derived from duping? The side from which in-game dupers would prosper personally, or the side where they wouldn't? Both "yes" and "no" surely had an equal share of non-dupers who padded the vote. But the "no" side won the votes of people who have an in-game history of duping.

Quote:
And you have evidence of this?
Yes. Look at the before and after poll-closing screenshots from page 14.

Abstract:

For those "no" voters who argue that the poll is inaccurate: do you think the margin of error is 15% towards the yes side? Even though in-game dupers would clearly vote "no"?

<3 I think tolerance is key here. The Devs may have started it, but if we keep this up we'll end up being the ones to bring SWGemu down. I really don't want to see that. I trust that we can all be mature and get back to socializing.

just enough votes, all thrown in 3rd option to get it under 66.6 (Which is a statistical imposiblitly btw)
The first SS, shows 1994 people voted, this was before the closing of the poll. The second SS shows that 2013 people voted right before it was closed. If you notice the first option goes from 162 in the first SS, and down to 161 in the second SS. How does one drop a count from the poll?

I am not understanding that.

P.S.- Sorry, I had to remove the http links as I don't have 5 posts and cannot post them......

As much as I agree with you, the community is made of ex-SOE players. This kind of thing has been happening on their boards since launch, through the CU, through the NGE, and still occurs.

Why would here be any different?

its different becasue this is NOT SOE !

I guess i don't get it am i wrong that the devs are allowing us to play on this server for FREE ? and to allow us to hang out test when we feel like it or play when we feel like it while they work there ass off for NO MONEY AT ALLL ??? You all need to wake up they dont have to do this for us at all...
