2011-07-30 Mort: Of course after I exploited it. Until it's been exploited, it isn't a problem and it's not even know. I didn't screw up being a guide by abusing the privilege or something, I was fired for unrelated shenanigans that [Hedda] felt was unbecoming for a guide. And that was over two and a half years ago. But, like I've said, if I do something like that, you have the option to not only fire me and never allow me to have those privs again, but you'll also be able to ban me and be rid of me. So what's the problem here? Don't you think if I was going to do something malicious, I would have done it one of the hundreds of times I had the opportunity?
2011-07-30 I don't know if you would've done it when you had the opportunity before, for all I know you did. Sorry, I know it's not what you want to hear/read. I can only speak for myself and I just wouldn't be comfortable with giving you the privs. If the rest of the council feel the same then there's not really much you can do about it. Not that I know of anyway.
2011-07-30 Mort: Priv 89 isn't any more exploitable than priv 90. Not once have I ever used privs to exploit anything, it's always been something that didn't matter what privs you had. I understand you don't feel comfortable giving me the privs, I just don't understand why you don't. Maybe you don't quite understand the situation?
2011-07-30 I just don't trust you, it really is that simple. I'm not sure what else you want me to say.
2011-07-30 Mort: Don't trust me to do what, though? How can I possibly ever get you to trust me, when you don't even have a reason to not trust me in the first place? Why not just let me have the benefit of the doubt? As I've explained, you have nothing to lose, but a determined worker to gain.
2011-07-30 Then maybe instead of going straight for a priv lowering job, why not try to be involved with something you don't need privs for? Then try and work your way up? You'd perhaps prove you really want to help.
2011-07-30 Mort: You don't think I've tried that? For the past three years I've tried. Every time it's, "Nope, we don't need any help. We've got it covered. ;D" or something similar. I get treated like the common Sammie or Mystin. And why can't I help moderate a contest? Why can't I help organize a wiki or even a roleplaying game? "I just don't trust you." That's all I ever get, no matter how simple or mundane the task. I try to help people out with their problems, but that evidently goes unnoticed. I try to help out where I can, but I pretty much always get turned away. Apparently, someone somewhere said I wasn't worth wasting time on and everybody just went with it, because nobody can seem to give me an actual reason not to let me help.
2011-07-30 Why do you care so much? (I do genuinely want to know. This was not meant to sound rude.)
2011-07-30 Mort: For a number of reasons (other than the obvious 'I want to help out!'). Mainly, so I can prove you all wrong and vindicate myself, since everyone always wants to insist I'm nothing but a worthless troll. Also, because I'm curious about how Elftown works and I would enjoy seeing what all the privs do and what all I can do with them (which is the driving factor behind anything I've ever done. Curiosity, not malice or the desire to ruin Elftown). Plus, the boy to girl ratio on the crew is too low, so I could be of assistance there. And I want to help out with things like contests that interest me. I want to be able to give my advice in voting for a poem or a piece of art and have it taken seriously, rather than be scoffed at and told to leave. Mostly though, I want to eventually become a guard/vice mayor, which is impossible if I'm not even allowed to be on the council.
2011-07-30 I'd be fine with giving you a shot at being on the council, but it's a group decision, methinks.
2011-10-15 #92105: Council members, guards, and even lesser Elftowners and commoners have just seemed so uptight as of late. You're all so angry and serious it would seem, so I think I'm going to make you all smile. You can't stay mad while you're laughing. :D
2012-08-20 Mort: Y'know, I've had priv 49 on Elfpack for a year now... I can has priv 89 on Elftown now?
