Guys? can we at least wait until Kern says whether or not we can add new members to existing noble families before we get into a huge fight? Thanks.
Think about what you just said. 3 people pay for a portrait. Then person number 4 comes along and joins the family. In that case, either he has to pay money for no portrait or he gets to avoid paying what the rest of his family paid to start up.
Ah, on the volunteer donation part, let me ask you a question: if you didn't have to pay for it would you pay it?
Me personally? Yep. Would I expect everyone to, including new players? nnnnnnope.
While it is true that some people might donate, there's quite frankly no guarantee that they would, especially considering the fuss some people are raising over the price tag now. This method, while somewhat heavy handed, will guarantee that people who are serious will make that commitment.
It also guarantees that not many commitments will be made. Which means less money for kern. This isn't a difficult concept, but you seem to be struggling with it.
Not so much indifferent as we see the validity of both points of view. The reason why we support the current option is because we believe that it will be beneficial to the site both in the short and long term.
You believe, I have shown. This will not be beneficial to the site short or long term.
*nod nod* And for the record I voted for Option 1, but said I could live with 2. And that's what I'm doing. Living with it. Because I accept that I sometimes (hell, often times) cannot get my way.
Sometimes you can though. But only if people work together. You aren't. You are running interference, you are not keeping your indifference to yourself, you are encouraging others to be indifferent. You're like someone who vocally tells people not to vote.
