Easy they take a station and puzzle their little pirate fingers to the bone like the rest of us do.

But I will remember the excuse the next time we lose a blockade or battle it is Springheels and Yearbooks fault.
Poor Springy blamed for more stuff.

Re: Cleopatra's Mess

I think she's referring to the new blockade navigators.

Or is she refering to BiPolar as a flag being new.

Re: Cleopatra's Mess

I quote
" carpers like springheel and old school pirates like yearbook "

So to me it reads carpers or puzzlers.

Re: Cleopatra's Mess

In all fairness the lady apologised, why not accept it in good grace and let it be?

Re: Cleopatra's Mess

 


I was in a flag that held Cleopatra's Pearls for a while. We cared very much about the beautiful layout and worked hard to take good care of the island.

There used to be one shop there - a distillery. I was the last deedholder. I gave it up so that it could be dusted and turned into shacks. Then the plan was to find a way to get a tailor bazaar built so the island could spawn greenies, possibly by dusting the apothecary bazaar first. The island changed hands before the plan could be finished - the shacks were built once the distillery poofed, but that's as far as it got.

I was a bit annoyed when I saw you built a shipyard bazaar there instead - seriously bad idea when you consider the wood supply for that arch. (I know people that move wood from Ruby down to Zeta because they can't get it fast enough or at a good enough price on Zeta!) And the location? My eyes bled. Seems to me like both the choice of building and plot location could have been a lot better.

Initially I thought that as bad as it was, it's your island, so whatever. I shrugged and moved on. Then I read this post post of yours. After seeing your petulant, childish attitude, I decided to do something instead of just letting it be. Thankfully the rest of Bipolar agreed with me that we ought to at least try to do something. (Actually, I think they just like to shoot barnacle up, and any excuse is as good as any other.)

I am posting here now because I thought you'd like to know just how much your political "finesse" really made an impact on me (as well as others). Looking at the rest of the tartfest that appeared after the post I quoted, here's to hoping Alniyat and Xule, and others, will come out to help us clean up your mess.


I was in the flag that held Cleo just before Donsmythe. It was the Flag that first colonized it. I was sad when the distillery dusted, I named it.
An alt opened the first IM stall on Cleo, and I still operate one there. Our flag considered the placement of every building very carefully, and we had all the supplies needed for construction before construction started.
We saw Cleo as a "vacation" spot, not as a spawning spot, and hoped to have plenty of booze and shot for passers-by. Other flags have other visions, and that's as it should be, but rubble piles should be cleaned up.

PS: all the wood burned in my IM comes from Eta or Cranberry. Zeta's wood is for emergencies only.

Re: Cleopatra's Mess

Just a quick interruption here:


The construction site and rubble piles are now gone.


You may now return to the regularly scheduled tarfest, at least until a lolcat shows up or the thread gets Godwinned .

Re: Cleopatra's Mess

Thanks don, didn't know you could get om's to remove rubble until this thread. So thats handy to know. There has been rubble at the other side of the island since before we took cleo over a year ago.

Just to clarify on the plan to spawn greenies... I was governor at that time and got the shacks built with all due speed. We, Silver Dawn - a now dead and defunct flag - were ready to make the changes needed to spawn greenies but ONE extremely selfish pirate decided he/she/they didn't want due to their apothecary stall being located there. We offered to move his/her/their stall and pay a fee to compensate them for move, but they refused.

In short, I am thoroughly familiar, and can sympathize with, Don's frustration on this issue.
