Yada Yada...

Even if your spelling sucks, your action coming here and apologizing is really mature and professional.
+1.

I really don't have anything more to say about the server, try improving the site by your player opinion and then modify according to it, you'll eventually find that more people is coming to your server.

Kudos, Snaggrage. Good to see you realized your mistake.

This is pretty much all I can give you in the vein of advice...

- Balance those Custom Items. Your rates are hardly SHR-type, yet your items are definitely screaming SHR. Creative as you may feel they may be, you don't make Custom Items because you like them, you make them so the players like them. If your players like them, then great, but keep in mind that around that rate range, you want to still attempt to retain some sort of balance.

- Do something about that Death Note. I can already see the massive amounts of abuse that will spawn from its usage. Of course, entirely up to you.

- Touch up the site a bit. It's alright, but could be better. You'll do fine with a little editing here and there.

- This is mostly a nitpick, and will sound mean, but seriously: Nobody wants to play on a server that looks like it's written by a 5-year old, ESPECIALLY in the item descriptions. Take your time, and don't rush. You'd be surprised how many people actually pay attention to fine amounts of detail, such as I did when I reviewed your Custom Items thread, with the descriptions clearly screencapped. Also, you tell me what looks better...

GM announcements...

Descent: Hello, everybody. I'm in Izlude if you have any questions. No PMs, please.

Or...

GM NoOb: im in izlude lol no pms plz noobs

Proper typing in announcements and chat can go a long way and create a good impression.

Use the advice as you will. Good luck, keep your temper down(and that of your friends, they are a direct reflection of your server), and you'll do fine.

well, for me, your fault is for flooding forums ;D

you need to make your flash loading faster @[email protected]

and no overpowered items (like sakkat which give soul link @[email protected])

note:  I don't know you're that mature ;D

keep your behavior like this, you'll get more player ;D

All the GMs in Dev Ro and really working hard for a better server. Most of the GMs are very active and the players will support you all the way... if theres anything the players can do just ask im sure they will help the server they love.... over all though Deviant Ro has so much potential for gaining alot more members....

When i first read the post u made (version 1).. it was ok, I went to the forum have a look around. It did not feel like begging for players as some may have suggested. I did not really went very deep into things, but on the homepage, there seems to be some recent technical problems/management problems. Removing of GMs, Forced to rebuilt a new server due to major bugs, server crash, etc... (all those announcement on the main homepage - all bad news, eventhough they are old news) Arn't there any newer news worth celebrating? some new Patches perhaps? A new custom headgear? A newly appointed GM?

I am very fond of one mid servers website. I have nothing to do with them btw. Just something I came across while googling and thought it to be very informative, clean yet "catchy"
http://www.essencero.com/

Anyways, after u made the post (version 2). I had a second look at the website/forum. Since, u mentioned that the server had a previous name, I was curious if there were any wipes and how was it handled. Well, I did not find what I was looking for or rather something else caught my attention:

A player's post
"Well a lot of new players that we met were shocked by reading a gm's broadcast saying that "your stupid if you got hacked or scammed" and other rude words. Well its really our fault if we got scammed or hacked but its wrong to tell us that we are stupid. Now new players are thinking twice to join and continue playing in this server. Even this server got hacked right?then does this mean this server is stupid? (or the admin who manages this server?)  Well,this is just the opinion of the new players and some old players that we've talked to. Peace"

A GM's repond
"its completely dumb if u get hacked its not or problem if u get hacked or scamm its yours after u get free items u feel we should help u again hahahaah jokes u think we stupid thats why it was b-casted who ever gets hacked or scamm its your fault. if you think its not a fair judgement bpm GM-Darkzide or Behemoth an see if they help you to get back free items lol.

i hope u see where i come from you didn't donate so therfore why should we give back s*** answer that and i will give back hacked items."

I don't know the whole story and would not pretend to know it. I even had to re-read the respond a few times, to guess what is the GM trying to communicate. So, I am assuming the most recent wipe had something to do with massive hacked items. To me the word scam brings a different meaning. If someone was scammed, kinda sound like he/she was cheated of an item. I will assume that item is a legit item. Even if there weren't legit by origin, they could have bought it from someone/traded items with someone; believing they were legit. So what I am saying is any concerns expressed by players should not

1. be laughed at; or
2. belittled

Perhaps appoint a GM or subGM to moderate the forums. Someone who is more patient and  eloquent in English. Some people are just better with "People", not all GMs are the same. Some are better at technical matters - eAthena development, and they don't necessary need to deal directly with players.

Post by: EvilLove on Oct 01, 2008, 02:33 am
Blah i will say sorry too but after the first post it made me angry. people come in and one judge the server just because some of your players have posted here in that past and 2 everytime i have ever looked at topic here and someone that has not joined that server leaves a rude comment. So i will say i am sorry but please leave at least a positive to the negative.

@snaggy i will kill ya for saying that XD XD XD

 yo bleu i'ma let u know the hold deal on that we had a wipe cause there was a GM- we invited called GM-Raise he abused his powers so we then kicked him out the team ok after that we got hacked from him the server was hacked by him and GM-vanpriest from vanro . we was GM's from vanro before we left and made our own server vanpriest got angry and blocked or GM's in vanro cause we made our own stuff . so then shortly after he blocked all or main accounts saying we stealing player dis time we didn't i donated like 3 thousand to that scammer van and he blocks my main account. so then later down when our server was getting ppl and more pl was leaving van so van came to devro and stole some of or ideas so that his servers players will stay wat a sleezy move but later after players wasn't coming back so he posted in his forums talks about unprofessional http://www.vanserver.com/ragnarok/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=14467
cause we made our own he says we would hack his players LOL
so then the players still continue to play devro so he gave GM-Raise his loggs of all snaggrage and darkzide passes that was on vanro loggs so then he hacked the GM' accounts when we was sleeping and deleted ppl items and characters we was like wtf roll back but when i asked darkzide he said we have no back up i was like omg we had 300 players around that timeso we was then forced to wipe
and they still found another way to hack us saying or server has security leak and they dedosd or webpage so that the remote destop won't start lol i don't kno how they got all that info but they facked us . so then we change ip and stuff and said after wipe we will give back all players there stuff that sounds fair
and we gave them back like all there stuff some players lied said they was here and wasn't got free items thats why we was like we won't give back but now i am sure we will give back any thing lost.we are still growing but slow we now have 124 players. 160 at woes here is a lil screenie of dev now

I think that's enough for now, Kasumi.
Tho it's still strange that a server which has 160 people on at WoE needed too advertise in such a rude and unproffesional way.
About the whole hacking thing, you know you can change the passwords, right?

As your server is currently growing (steadily?) what are you doing in here actually? Asking advice? Tips?
I think you should listen too your own players on your own forums, instead of people that have nothing to do with the gaming experience of your server.

Hello snaggrage,

I think.. one of the main things you can improve on is your website, not everyone likes flash in my opinion. Also adding in a cpanel so players can look up their rank, change slots and such makes.. the server feel more "user-friendly" Also when I was reading your post before it got deleted I saw that someone mentioned the fact that you were selling donation items for -$450- keep in mind that there is a reason why it's called "donations" the main goal of a donation is to help pay of the costs of a server hosting fees and such, by you selling items for 450$ it is a INSTANT turn off for people like me because all it tells me is that the Admin is doing this just for the money =)

Also as an admin of a server..try to be a bit more mature? and prove to the community that you not a 10 year old child who nags and whines and yells and (whatever a 10 year old does that ..is annoying >_>) improve on your spelling! remember it's not  " i "  it's " I " ..good god man! at least run a spell check on Microsoft Word or something? before you post updates on your server!


Other than that your server is on its way!


Cheers~
Shinn.

$450 = Wrath Of Midgard
This is really, really weird, seeing how easy this weapon is countered(Wind and Thana effect?) and it somewhat can be blocked isntantly, and dude, 450 DOLLARS? It is supposed to be medium, like 60$, so everyone can and donate, not just hope for someone be crazy enough to pay 450 dollars only one time to get a blade that can be hacked and blocked by anyone.

Once again °_o

Seeing all these typos or grammar mistakes is making me feel angry. As said by many people, maybe try and make the server's information look professional? It would be bad if people didn't join your server because they were feeling a bit reluctant due to the often mistakes in typing.

There's nothing wrong of course, but it would be wise to fix things up and balance the donation list.

If i can i will start correcting his english. He has a accent and sometimes it is hard to understand. Also the main admin that is not snaggrage is the one incontrol of the forums updates i will also try and get ahold of that. but please dont judge what snaggrage is saying because he is not perfect with his english
Title: Re: ok i gues i was wrong but i still want to here ur views Devro
Post by: snaggrage on Oct 01, 2008, 02:21 pm
true that  my english bad its because i speak broken english in my country like for instance
that =tha
want to = wanna
the = de
going = gine
and a lot more its because i come from a small country called barbados in the
caribbean thats why i talk so strange you type how you speak i'm sorry for my strange accent to your america or english one

yea and about the wrath of miguard i told em it should be cheaper thats a turn off they left me in control of the server cause the main friends that own it are verry busy they go school and work so i work but in the day in the night or evaning is really my time i'm active always online.
but i aggree the webpage need fixin and the donations i will talk to them lesson the donation .
and also put custom donations
look i hate wings but i reallize  alot of servers have customs like wings and they have 700 to 1200
i don't kno how.
but i will try to see if we can make stuff better than wingz or anything i just wanna try my best for the server we own.

Making more affordable donation items will make it look less like a quick cash job and more like an RO server.

If you're in control, definitely do something with that. NOBODY will throw 450$ at an RO server for one item.

honestly all the small servers remain uncorrupt (sometimes >.<)
while all the big ones become corrupt to the core (ALWAYS)

It sounds like he's hinting at an incentive system for votes, which is a little cheesy...people should vote for a server because they like it, not because they can get customs.

agree with this point :x

*never votes unless I like the server*
