They don't like me, that's for sure. I've PM's Gorb, Bri, and Glith, and still my characters remain.... (of course I don't want ALL mine gone, just most, so I am asking a big favor what with all else they have going on, so just be patient)

Conrad, you're next.....

Well, honestly, I won't be doing any character deletions for a little bit. We're going to be wiping the vault soon anyways.... oops, did I leak that out! icon_twisted.gif And besides, wiping the vault really doesn't help anyone... just saves on a few hundred kb of disk space.
And before the rumors start to fly, no, I don't believe we will be upgrading to SoU during that time.

Maybe I'm just in denial or plain stupid icon_rolleyes.gif But why are we doing a wipe if it's not going to help anyone and just save a few KB's? If you feel inclined to respond is there another reason why we are wiping Gorby?

More than anything, because of the weirdness that occured with the 1.30 patch. My tendancies force me to believe that it's not so much the flakiness of the patch, as it is the mod itself. But either way, this would eliminate the constant "I get an invalid character screen when I try logging in" complaints. It's also fun to enter in rm d:/nwn/servervault/* -r at the command prompt. But that's just the peccancy in me. icon_twisted.gif

I'd bet all my characters - oh wait - my lifetime access to Dyso that it IS the MOD. It wouldn't be the first time that I've heard MOD designers saying they had to fully upgrade to SoU for many many bugs to disappear. I personally experienced this on Arkania. I couldn't pick Circle Kick or Assassin even though I should have been able to, and almost *any* spell would cause body-jumping. Kane upgraded to SoU and *whoosh* - problems solved.

Yes, the "invalid character" thing still happens, but in that case, oh well, tough luck, guess ya gotta make a new one. But those few people having this problem hasn't caused him to wipe everyone's characters!

Not that SoU doesn't come with it's own issues - but the difference b/w full-blown SoU and just the measly 1.30 patch was HUGE. And I was able to continue right where I'd left off with my new character and take the Feat and the Prestige class no problem.

Vault wipes are a matter of administrative philosophy above virtually anything else.

Some places never do wipes, let items that were phased or or changed float around out there, etc etc. Or basically believe that once you get to level 20, you should never have to worry about getting to level 20 again unless you start a new character. Some call it "supporting the players" or "players rights" or some other turn of a phrase about how grand and gracious they are (not to mention really smart and kind) to never wipe the vault.

We've never made any allusions (or, for that matter, illusions) to that philosophy here. Periodically the Dyso Vaults get wiped ... has happened a few times in the past and will undoubtedly happen again in the future. The reasons for the wipes are many ... clearing out dead/unused characters and their accounts, eliminating items from the world that were changed or removed, and just levelling the playing field for new people who find themselves dodging arrogant level 18s-20s who think they really run the place and are there just to harass some newbies trying to get on with things.

Sure there are steps that could be taken in a player to player manner to achieve similar goals ... but a) that takes a huge amount of time and b) experience has led us to believe that the general player who has something that they know is "phased out" will hide, duck, and run to avoid giving it up. We don't feel like chasing people over this stuff ... a nice big system enema does the trick and puts everyone in the same boat.

There should be a... contest, or quest. THat will let 5 selected individuals keep their characters. There should be a limit tho... because if you character is only level 7 or 8 then theres not much point in saveing them right?

By the people! For the people!

I was really mad about the whole server wipe bit...I thought it was a really dumb thing since i couldnt think of a reason why they would wipe the characters...At some point I had decided to not come back to dyso when that happens...but after thinking a bit I realized that there are many good things that could come from wiping. The old items being removed is one of them...perhaps a new rping spirit will arise since we will all be newbies again icon_smile.gif And finally the struggle for power may start once more since things may become unstable regarding ic politics...Well I am going to be back when dyso wipes and I hope I enjoy my future time here as much as I did when i first found dyso.
