Once upon a time I used to think Arkadian's were a nicer population than those of a certain larger more populated place. That they showed each other more respect and were adult enough to hold reasoned arguments. To understand it is possible to discuss or even rant without resorting to rudeness, profanity or vulgarity. That people who try to help were appreciated for the effort, even if the information they provided was not perhaps well put, or what you expected. Sadly the degeneration to mud-slinging and jealousy seems to have arrived. Can we all please stop, think and maybe step back, let's not ruin what made Arkadia special to us.. the community. As for the Ark Devs I agree a little more communication on a regular basis would be nice, but their primary job is to develop the planet and in the current situation also the moon. I am sure that between their day to day work in the office, sometimes travel around the globe, (not all meetings can or should be done on-line) plus other projects they may be involved in and oh yeh real life, that they chat to us when they can. They are a small team and are therefore to some extent dependant on others (Ark advisors) to help. Please note Arkadian advisors are Players, not Employees. They have no advantage over the rest of us mere mortals except they chat together to share game knowledge in order to help other players. They were not 'chosen' but volunteered as the rest of us could have. So again I ask that while we may or may not always like the message or the delivery style, can we please look beyond that and appreciate that they at least offered their time to help others.
