    Hello everyone, Madi here. As some of you have probably guessed Revamp will not be released for testing or official launch today. Before I explain why we have had to stretch the release date even further I would like to formally apologize for myself and the entire Revamp work team in letting you down. We are trying our hardest to finish this Revamp but I myself will not allowed us to rush another revamp.

    The simple answer is this, we are testing thoroughly, even more than ever. We are documenting just about every npc under the sun and we also have been trying to figure out working armor equations, xp equations, damage equations, etc. It's a time consuming process in which we are guaranteed working and efficient results the player base can be happy and diligent with if we are allowed the time and cooperation from such base.

    You make our server function, without each and everyone of you we would not have any of this today. No fun events, no dungeons, no questionably kind player base, no fun little surprise exploiters, nothing. But with such great numbers remember us little guys, the staff team. Who are pulling each other's legs to try and give you all the best experience in game we possibly can. Despite what many say yes we are living, breathing, thinking, and feeling humans, we've got those rare things called lives, we have problems, we have human life. Now I know some people have spent an unhealthy amount of time on the Revamp and I thank and applaud them yet the rest of us have school, functions, family issues etc. I am not trying to give excuses or ask for a pity party, just trying to show you all what is going on in the inner workings and have some understanding grounds for us to come to.

    Without further ado we will continue working on the Revamp as Panda demands and slave drives us too (love ya Pands ;)) and plow through all of this like a freight train and knock it out of the park.

    Thank you all for waiting, we will be back.

    I know it keeps getting pushed back over and over again, but having set dates for releases just causes more stress on the staff team- who aren't even familiar on working on these sorta things.

    We will have the revamp out at the proper time and we'll make sure that everything is running how it is supposed to. It's best for things to be like this to prevent any errors in the future.

    Also, if you couldn't tell by yourself, being a smart alec per say, simply saying negative things about something in which we're trying hard to complete, genuinely trying our hardest, going through all the possibilities of "could this mod be better than this? Panda how could we implement you, etc" is rude and disrespectful. Please don't comment some other "Well you have been taking years and I was simply stating the truth Madi, you should know better" blah blah and be some Jesus who apparently knows all (joke don't take literally). He was saying counting the days in anticipation and hope, then you waltz in like usual on the forums spouting another... how do I word this, something that seems like a joke but you know we're not so stupid to see what's really behind it, with the context you've given us in the past, plainly to get a rise and or to joke about something positive but you make it negative. Off topic but a lot of us are sick of it, some of it is true, but saying the truth hurts doesn't help. No snazz, it's taken a gosh dang LONG time to get this revamp, everyone is frustrated and dissapointed, we have been counting the days, (love how I'm going on a rant about ya joke but it's all adding up bud) too when finally a much needed revamp will be finally complete. I'm sorry IXA if you don't support us in everything, if you don't, take it to the complaint section or leave the forums if ya gonna be r00d and hurt mai feelings ;(. Not trying to go on a rant but please understand where I'm coming from, this shiz doesn't help the morale or the progress of what you're commenting on, the hope for a brighter future in the server, the hope that some will at least hang in there and actually stick with us and support us through this.
    Thanks.

    ........Look at it this way. If someone else, let's say chesh said those things, would you have felt the same way? (Sorry chesh, only using your name because you're one of the brightest/well-reputated members in this community). I doubt you would, and that is because currently, you and many other staff/players have negative emotions about IXA.

    Let's say there's player A and player B. Player A is a friend of yours who you enjoy talking to, and player B is one you dislike due to whatever reason. Now, they both make a joke about your.......horse for example. If it was player A, there is a high possibility that you will laugh and treat it as a joke, who knows, it could perhaps even motivate you to take care of your horse more. On the other hand, if player B made the joke, you would most likely feel negative emotions such as anger, disgust etc.

    Now, I am player B to many of the members in this community including you, so whenever I make a few jokes/statements based on conflicts, it is only natural that many negative emotions form directed towards me. However, if people looked at my posts in an neutral perspective, I believe the conflict you are witnessing will not happen, as many of those posts of mine was not written with the purpose of insult/negativity.

    However, it is very difficult to have an neutral perspective on someone you hate, so I will listen to your advice and stop with the revamp jokes. I do support the revamp, and the long time it's taking is a good sign, as it proves more content and care is being put into the new project. I was making the jokes to lighten the atmosphere at times, but I now realize that all it was doing was putting stress on you guys, and I apologize for that.

    I would like you and the staff/players having the same issue to understand from this post, that I do not hate any of you (including hex), and that I was making mistakes with many of my posts in terms of content, format or grammar choices, which lead you guys to believe that I was being hostile on many occasions. It is true that at times I did feel anger, but looking back at those times now, I feel quite embarrassed with disbelief that I felt such way. I love this community and it's friendly members, and the last thing I want to do is break that apart (I know, it seems ironic considering my past, but this is what I truly feel and the members who have known me for a long time and that have seen through my mistakes will understand). I left this server many times, but I always came back because I missed this community, and now that you have told me many of my posts was harming you guys, I do feel guilty.

    Which is why I request for my ban. As much as I would like to stay here, I know I will continue to be depicted as the trouble maker by many of you, and no matter how hard I try in making posts which won't cause conflict, as long as the hatred continues (and my personality) it will always bring negativity to this community. I worked hard for the past few months in trying to re-gain my reputation, and it made me very happy seeing many positive ratings I received not only from friends and strangers, but from people I thought hated me, but it seems as though my current forum statistics is a lie or a sign of pity from the community. As long as I am not banned I will most likely stick with this community until it's end (though I may leave at times), and now that you have seen me continue to make mistakes even after receiving advice from sky about my posts, I am ready to receive the punishment I deserve.

    Once again, I am sorry that my posts created negativity even if it was un-intended, and I am prepared to face the consequences. I do wish this community the very best, and I have many high hopes for the revamp in satisfying many players and bringing old friends back.

    P.s
    Sorry for my bad english, I would have rather written in Japanese but it would then sound like a speech of a villain from an shounen anime that was about to die xD

    I'll respond in a chronological order as in responding to each paragraph truthfully because I don't see the point in lying or sugar coating things.

    Yes, I would have felt the same way. You're not on the staff team but in chats, teamspeak etc, everyone knows I speak my mind. I do not care if you were my husband, child, best friend, or colleague, if you say something I personally do not appreciate or like, I will tell you and speak my mind about it. Heck, I just had to tell off Sky the other day for a certain thing I will not mention since it is solved, if Chesh said what you said, yes, I would have said almost the same thing. I couldn't say it on the same level as I responded to you because he is not a banned player but a staff member. If he were to say that I would have most likely said along the lines of, "That's not funny Chesh, I understand if it's a joke but try and keep the positivity." I do not have negative emotions towards you, only certain things you say, otherwise you are amazing to have around when it's in certain circumstances, you try to keep the forums alive, you have amazing taste in things, you understand the Japanese culture, etc. There are many positives, the negatives rule out however.
    It depends on the joke XD usually I'm tolerable about these things to both Player A and B in the situation you set up since I have been teased and bullied all my life about farming things and horses. Take Stalker for example, she always calls me Angry Farmer and makes farm jokes to me, I tolerate her but deep down there's that voice that just says "hang up boi pls it hurts", Stalker is A and B for me, she was a staff member but god she can get on my nerves (and she knows it) and we do have negatives of the past things she has done.
    I do look with neutrality, I love reading your posts, your comments, however some are distasteful and completely just out of the blue. Not everyone is a robot, we can't always look at things with neutrality. I understand it was a joke, I saw it, but it was a distasteful one that has been used and hinted at before in real circumstances and we're trying our hardest. You are not that Player B to me, you are only B when you make comments I don't agree with, which everyone has that moments. Just because I speak out against something you said once doesn't mean I hate you always. Remember that time I talked to you on ts? You were and are Player A in those moments. Moments like these you would be Player B. They go hand in hand for me, everyone is both Player A and B, I will love you at some points, but sometimes it goes to far. I know you love revamp and the server, you've stuck around, and most of what you point out and try to give constructive criticism is true, yet moments like these tugs on the reigns per say. (As in the horse will bare its teeth and push forward against the owners will when they cannot see the car or something coming in front of them, for those who don't understand my farmer uses XD).
    DO NOT ask for your ban, you are a wonderful person and I understand it is your personality, but let's both take a page from the same book I have been yelled at many times for, tone it down a bit. I have had to learn that many times, we cannot change who we are, only warp it and decrease it's potency, in situations like this I urge dilution. You are clearly intelligent and understand the meaning behind things, instead of that certain joke you could have said possibly "Agreed, we don't know how much longer this will take with the past", "Days? *looks at calendar*" or something like that. Less syntax and diction usually helps XD. Just head our/my advice IXA, you're a wonderful person to have around, sometimes however you are the horse in situations.

    Thanks for reading
