    Nah, I think being an Arkadian is in the attitude. Like supporting the planet in your own way. [​IMG]
    And things like wanting to have a passport now, even though it has no practical functionality atm.

    As this thread shows, there are many veterans who had no choice in the matter, but now are proud Arkadinans.
    I was just lucky to have that choice.
    Like the vast majority, I thought the planets were just ingame features.
    By the time I finished the Gateway I started to have doubts about that.
    And learned that the choice of starter planet does in fact make a rl difference for the PP.
    I stopped playing until I could be 're-born': and didn't even finish any of the puny missions.
    So there was hardly anything lost skill wise.
    To start over an avatar of almost two years old, is a completely different story.

    But that's why I do mention it: to let starters know they have a choice. While they still are in the position to change it.
    Some aren't aware that you can start on different planets.
    And virtually none of them knows that a % of the ped you generate is going to the planet that you are born on.
    For the rest of your avatar's lifetime. (50% MA / 25% birth planet / 25% planet you play on) [​IMG]
    Even though I'm not a big investor: I still like that I could choose where/with who my peds wound up.
    So yeah, I tend to ask beginners if they choose Caly on purpose, or just by default.
    9 out of 10 times it's by default.
    (Even a few who saw Arkadia advertising, but when later on going to download the game, googled for EU and saw the link https:/account.entropiauniverse.com/ with the description: "An Entropia Universe Account is Your Ticket to Planet Calypso." So assumed that that was the default starting place.)
    And with the new information given, some even decide to chose differently, and make the change to be born on Arkadia. [​IMG]

    I understand why they can't let existing avatars change their starting planets, even the ones who started when there was only 1 planet.
    But that makes it even more important to make sure that starters, who do have that possibility, have the information to make a conscious decision. Before reaching the point of no return.
    Luckily the universal chat channels make that a lot easier to do. [​IMG]

    But you're clearly not in a starter's position anymore. And an Arkadian by heart.
    There is a body sculptor here who might be able to help you with your 'look'? [​IMG]
    Angels Of Arkadia, shop # 2 in Celeste Harbor.

    ps. Sorry for the wall of text: result of not being able to get in-game. Stuck in AU once again.

    I was just about to PM you a few questions (because I didn't want to drag this into the Off Topic section). :laugh:
    It does annoy me now that I know the figures, what MA earns from Calypsian born avatars. That reason alone makes me want to start over (Ignorance is bliss :confused: ).

    As for the body sculptor; I was chasing both him and someone else on and off for 3 months before I gave up (sort of). It would be easier to start over completely. Besides. I could get a more normal name without involving MA again. o_O
    To be continued...

    Hehe, it's on topic. :sneaky:
    It might help a beginner who reads it, to give it some thought.
    But yeah, I'll send a PM, perhaps we can figure out a solution that's as painless as possible. [​IMG]

    Started back in 2005 and this is my 3rd ava. Had the others deleted by MA before making the new ones. All were born on Caly but this current one was born on Ark!

    Arkadia all the way. Born here live here.
    I have visited other planets but not stayed for more than a week just to see what else is out there.

    I understand a little about how some are complaining about Caly getting some of the profit from Caly born avatars but look at it the other way.
    Planet Arkadia are doing a lot to bring in new players and some of them are then leaving for other planets.
    It is a good thing that the A-Team can still benefit from bringing in those new players.

    Born in PA, Calypso in '06. As they've come on line, I've spent time on all the planets, some longer than others. But Arkadia is my home.

    Port Atlantis, Calypso. Dec 30th, 2004.

    Will never forget that first feeling, stepping off the arrival ship into a strange, beautiful world.

    poll closed so couldn´t vote, but born in New Oxford `06 & I´ve been on & off ever since, now I´ve picked up an Ark passport and working my way up in the IFN marine corps learning a few new call and response songs on the way...like "I don´t know but I´ve been told...Oratan pussy is mighty cold" ;)...anyways must say I really like what the devs done to the place, might actually stick around for awhile! :)

    This pool would've be quite interesting to see the change and which planet is doing their things right.
    Most players before 2011 were all Calypso, no other alternative.
    I'd like to see a pool past 2012 or something when most planets we got as active were released, that would give us some real data
