Fable [a subserver to Playerworld19] is hiring all development positions except for scripters. Fable will be a RPG server based on Egyption Times [Maybe]. This is a serious project and you will need experience to be hired.

Exactly what I was thinking and it'd be much better to name it something original. Like lords of Egypt or some funky one word name like Ubergyptian! >.>

It MIGHT not be an Egyptian theme, most likely it will be but we are still deciding

Also, what a coincidence I designed the GUI for the server and soon later on learned it was similar to the xbox version o_O, so people would think this was done on purpose, now I have to change it :/ (or maybe redisign it a little)

Suggestion, if you're gonna go egyptian, name it Pharoah's Land. Or something like that.

Lets just say that the owner of that pw needs some mental help.

Relevance? Basis? Evidence? Anything other then your continued blatant disruption of people's attempts at making playerworlds. Some might call you a realist, I call you sort of a jerk. If you present me with any background whatsoever for this comment, I'll retract my statement.

Hm, Although RPGs are done alot today, any Egyptian theme would be really interesting, seeing as you have loads of history to base it off, mummys, pyramids all the curses you can let people use ingrediants to create. So MUCH , good luck and if you do get somewhere ill input some good GFX for the server :)

Okay heres some more information, the server is now officially going Egyptian, the name will remain FABLE, the only problem is we need some staff and a new tileset.

There are 3 open spots for Graphics Team.
There are 5 open spots for Levels Team.
There are 2 open spots for the Gani Team.
There are 2 open spot for the Sound Effects Team.
There are 2 open spots for Development Staff.
We are not hiring Scripters at this time.

We are also giving 2 Co-Owner spots and 1 Manager spot, to the hardest and best workers.


Again, you need to be really experienced as this is a heavy project

Yeah, Fable is an Xbox game. My friend is obsessed about it.

So yes, Copyright definitely.

Ok well I'll guess you'll have to contact Microsoft up and have them sue me for naming a subserver to a playerworld 'Fable'

anyways...

We are mostly hiring GAT's now

Rapidwolve, your account is shared, I do not think you have the maturity to be even low staff on a server. Why don't you buy your own account and then we will talk?

Microsoft wont have to. Because it depends on what PWA think.

As I have said already, Microsoft didn't copyright the name.

You can search the US Copyright Office's records if you still dont believe me.

But the name is not copyrighted.

i think you need to be concerned about the name Fable, and more concerned about how your going to find 14 to work on your server. there are barely 14 people posting in this forum

You're right, it's a Trade Mark.

Very correct. And I don't think GO.com want to be sued for someones stupidity.

This is correct... but trademarks are pretty specific. Microsoft has no case. The only way they may have a case is if he makes the pw similar to the game.

I understand that now days you can trademark or copyright anything. But Fable...Its a Noun...well then again so is walmart nowdays...but then again you wont find walmart in the dictionary i dont believe. Fable is another word for fairytale or untrue story.

Sorry for being ambiguous, but I meant a public outcome, that will be used.

Seeing as how it being a success or a failure IS an outcome, regardless of if it's a good outcome or a bad outcome - there will be an outcome. But yes, let's see an good outcome.

"Fable: The Lost Chapters" is trademark and copyright of Microsoft, "Fable" not.

Is it possible to copyright a noun used in such ordinary ways?

the word "Fable" can be used on anything it can't be copyrighted or w/e since its a Normal everyday word, Xbox were just the first to use it in a game
