Regarding 2k1's current status.

Let's reset hats and money and etc. Make people start over. Make some new quests. Make some new events.

Why do I say a reset? Because it will make everything even. Plus, it's not like people will quit because of a reset - those that would, already have.

Doing that will make people come back, I think.

It's just...we have to do SOMETHING, because the lack of attention/activity is not helping at all, but instead hurting things.

The thing is, to keep people, we have to pay a lot of attention to it, and have frequent updates. If we don't do this, then people will come, do the new thing, and leave until another new thing comes again month(s) later.

I'll start working on a quest or an event. Haven't decided which one to make first.

Anyhow, I see a few things that need to be done. Jeff talks about "bringing back the golden age." Instead of that, we should be focused on something like "bringing about a NEW golden age". We can take some inspiration from the past, but as much as we'd like to relive it, it wont' happen.

Thing 1: We need to rearrange many items on the overworld. It's too crowded - Not a lot of room for new things.

Thing 2: Remove the half-finished projects that were never completed from the overworld. It looks horrible.

Thing 3: Develop new quests and events. With a cleaner overworld, we'll have places to put things.

Thing 4: Staff need to be more active. This includes me. I will be the first to admit I haven't been on as much lately as I was before. However, I'm going to start being online more, and being more active.

Thing 5: Once we gain more players, we need to work to keep them. This means continue the activity, release something new at least semi-frequently.

If we can accomplish these 5 things, the sleeping dragon that is Graal2k1 shall awaken, and perhaps even with a vengeance!

Oh, and we need to Change. The. Name.

K. Sure. Feel free to manually reset every account and go through and reset every flag on the server, etc.

Logical.

Sure, we can do things. I don't see any problem with that.

We can't make a new one either.

Then there's even less.

Activity in staff doesn't mean much. We had staff active all the time in the past and it didn't do anything to stem 2k1's downfall. Oh, and about the quests and events, by all means. Feel free.

We just can't give up on it...that's the thing. We have to TRY to do something, because the way we're doing it now isn't helping, either.

You think the overworld is crowded?! You never played on Classic, did you?
I was impressed about how empty the Graal2001 overworld is. I wish the Classic overworld would be as organized. (But it will never be).
Account resets? I doubt that will solve it.
The only things I currently don't like on Graal2001 are the new bodies and the few players.
I am maybe the only one who dislikes the bodies and I think the few players are caused by Graal Kingdoms.

I've tried to be optimistic for too long. Koni and I are both of like minds on the 2k1 subject. |:

*click on first name on the list*
*Shift+End*
Right-Click
Reset

Well, I've never used RC, but I imagine that such a reset tool would be similar to the playerlist.

There is no "list".

If you're referring to the accounts-db, you can't shift-anything it. It has to be done one by one.

Oh well, there probably isn't more then 10,000 accounts, and probably about 10 admins, that's 1000 accounts per admin, assuming that you can right-click to get a "reset" option in the accounts database, then it shouldn't take more then 2 seconds per account, so it would take less then 40 minutes to reset every account.

No. You have to search for accounts, to begin with, and then I have to give all of the staff reset rights (if we were to do that) and then you'd go through, say "A", then you'd have to go and search for "B", and then "C", and then "D", etc.

It would take about 10 seconds an account, anyways, and no one is going to stick around long enough to rest 1000 accounts, else we would have done that on our own much sooner.
