Forsaken World Community Legend - October

thenamesdominothenamesdomino Posts: 1,679 Arc User
Greetings Forsaken World

Back in June, the Forsaken World Team rolled out a new initiative to honor those around us in the community who have consistently gone above and beyond the call of duty to support the game and community: Our Community Legend Initiative. To this day, it has been a resounding success! Going forward, all inductees into the Community Legend initiative will now receive a special posting in Arc News as well as in the forums.

We have had some amazing candidates for the Community Legend Initiative, and this month was no different. Today we will honor 2 more respected members of the community.

From Shylia Server:
She plays on Shylia for a long time now and opened a guild for beginners called "LesAvengers" where she helps newer players out to get to know the game. Within this guild she's sharing her knowledge and some useful tips with everyone. She even created a video tutorial regarding the Anima system which is accessable for everyone on YouTube and which proofed to be very helpful. As a Bard who is focussing on healing her comrades, she is offering her assistance wherever it's needed and always stays polite even if there is a person in the group which she doesn't like personally. Thanks for being part of this community, Lyrissse!

From Illyfue Server:
A well established and respected member of the community in Illyfue, this player received more nominations than one could shake a stick at. I had only heard about his selfless nature through the nominations of other players, however got the chance to really work with them when running the “Escort! Freedom Harbor” event this past month. They took the reins and helped make the setup for their server an absolute breeze. Since meeting this player, I’ve seen first-hand their dedication to the community, always assisting players in need, educating them in the ways of the game and now they’ve taken it upon themselves to escort more characters through Freedom Harbor even without the event present. This player always participates both in the forums and in game, and is always willing to help, it is my honor to nominate VelvetStrike as October’s Community Legend.



The next time you see these two in game, say hi, ask them questions, and thank them for their service.

For their service and dedication to the community, all Community Legends receive a special pack containing The Community Legend Title, an exclusive Lv 90 Weapon, a Glowing Candle handheld, a special voucher redeemable for a pet stone.

We know there's more of you silent heroes out there, so don't be afraid to nominate someone!

If you would like to nominate yourself or someone you know, please shoot us an email at:



[email protected]



and tell us who next month's should be and why! If you already sent us a submission, don't worry we still have you under consideration.

    Gzz you both. I can't agree more than to say VelvetStrike is very deserving of the accolade. I have personally seen VelvetStrike over the years, how he has progressed from being someone who was hated for his strength in game to evolving into a helpful better player for the community. From someone who didn't care about fellow players to becoming someone who cares, someone who offers advice and help when needed, this is what legends are made of. Those reading does not have to agree with me, but that is a fact. Big congratz vivi.

    Any issues with a player are to be kept private, not posted publicly on the forums, no matter what the person did. If the person has done things that you feel are in violation of Forsaken World's ToS and RoC, report the player through the proper channels. The forums are no place for personal matters.

    @chibizombie89 I just saw your post. Wouldn't have replied to that person otherwise.It's good to know that putting the issues behind a door is the way FW deals with things. What was going on here is not a joke. But hopefully game moderators are going to be in-game as well and start having an impact.

    Sadly, Vague doesn't have powers in game. He is a forum moderator and a player like us.

    Can't someone perma IP ban this person from the forums ( and the game please) ? I think a lot of people can agree we are a bit tired of her/his tantrums over fashion, contests and all sorts of stuff like that. Lets all change into a positive direction and the key to do that is to free ourselves of people like that.

  • senrinsenrin Posts: 824 Arc User
    I can be positive even if people around be are all negative.

    I play if I want and noone can change my opinions, so I have no idea why this 7 yo querelle is all about.

    Do not like each others? Ok, happens a lot even in real life, but no need to put it personal here, on a game.

    "free ourselves of a people like that" - btw - remembers me unhappy moments my grandparents had: just an unhappy use of words, pretty sure. But be more sensitive about history :D

    In that case, might need perma ban everyone except a very few. :D

    Congrats to both winner, especially to VelvetStrike since I could play against him a lot in the past. I'm basicly sorry that I was blinded by a member who we all know and built hatred towards many players in game. Even I'm not playing anymore, I'm following all the events/posts and what I can tell is that you become truly a helpful player.

    I really miss those 1st equal battles against you than a bit overpowered ones and I'm so sorry that I said those things on my bad day. Hope you take good care of the guys in Immortal. Enjoy the game and don't care about those who hate you, none can be a loved-by-all player (unless you are full with Nutella like Sephi) :D

    @muralasa89 This is not putting it behind a door, this is cleaning up the forum to prevent an all out war from starting, as it already was. There are certain ways things are to be done to avoid previously stated wars from happening. One of the rules in the RoC states:
    Flaming and/or Trolling
    You may not post content which contains insults to other users or Perfect World Entertainment Staff, are specifically made to create undue discontent on the forums, disturbances in forum threads, pick fights or otherwise promote unfriendly conversation.
    No matter what the person did in game, it is not to be posted on the forums. If you have issues with a user, then you need to go through support or try contacting a GM or even a moderator directly with the issues. And believe me, it would be nice to be able to moderate in game as well, but as @silnec stated, I unfortunately can only moderate the forums. You'll be seeing me around more often to keep an eye on things, so if there are any issues you wish to address, feel free to contact me directly and I will see what I can do. That goes for in game issues as well. If something happens, screenshot it or grab a video if possible and send it my way. As I tell everyone, I can't make guarantees that I can get it resolved, but I will try my best to.

    His not a GM per se he may have some power but its not a GM. GMs are ppl that are in game they play/observe, Domina show from time to time to spill some mumbo jumbo about how it will be soon better, imho like politicians before election but after he gives 1 or 2 shiny things to calm ppl its all go back to all same guano.

    If he is GM tell me to where goes all the reports from game? BEfore u could report many things from game now whats left? Report hacking who no1 even at PWE cares.

    idk which server you are from but recently in illyfue domino even made a GM toon FH_Guide and he also has another character which he uses to communicate with us callmedomino. So i would consider domino a GM. Now how active he is is another matter.

    VelvetStrike is a very helpful player and he is kind and a really cool guy.

    He totally deserves being a Community Legend, because he really does help and he is always very active.

    He might be portrayed as an evil beast but he is really just a soft bunny. :wink:

    I agree that everyone has a different oppinion about everyone, in game and in real life. And you can't pretend you will like someone or they will like you for who you are, but complaining in the Forum about personal issues with other people is not the way to solve the problems you have.

    If you feel things are unfair or that someone has been unfair to you then try talking to that person privately. Coming here and bashing against someone and trying to trash their reputation after they just been giving an award for having an overall good game reputation is very low and all it does is make YOU look bad for saying those things.

    It does not change anything,except perhaps damaging your relation with other players and ruining your game experience even more.

    In my opinion what is low is to insult and bully people because they once posted an opinion about some event. And have people saying lies about me and my imaginary alts.
    So when this happens to me and I see this person being nominated for such a tittle, I just wanted to say what this player did.
    That's all.People is asking for a better game, yet they bully others without even knowing what's going on at all.
    I perhaps leave the game, and many people will be happy about it.But Iam the one who's getting many insults and **** and the one who is getting treated like the bad guy.All because I "crossed" him saying my comment about the fashion contest rewards.The reason why I posted comment is because in my opinion beign a community legend means to know better than to insult and bully someone.Seems like only his reputation matter here.

    If that's what people find normal.I mustn't belong here I guess.

    I understand your views, I really do. But this goes just as any place out there in the real world. While on public streets, you can say all you want, freedom of speech, etc. But as soon as you enter a place of business, your job, or other places, rules are in place. By signing up to these forums, and signing up to Arc and the PWE website, you agreed to the RoC and ToS. Within those two sets of rules and regulations, it is stated that you can not post content that is defamatory, libelous, inflammatory, etc.

    If I would have left those posts in this thread, who knows how far it would have gone, and how much back and forth there would have been. Had this not been an admin's thread, I probably would have just closed it to prevent any further comments from potentially arising with the administration's decisions. I do hope you understand that I'm not disregarding what you mentioned or trying to "erase it from existence", I'm just doing my job as a moderator to ensure the forums are clean and friendly for all users.

    (I would have sent this all in a message, had the message system not been buggy and telling me I don't have permission to send messages)

    @chibizombie89 Oh, I understand, and Iam not complaining =) Was just answering the other comment trying to explain why I posted days ago my original comment.Since Iam still the bad guy and laveled to a "low person". When Iam the victim here. And since people also makes their point I guessed Iam allowed to as well?

    But I do believe that you did your job for the best.And the other comment wasn't complainign about you if that's what it looked like x.x

    Unfortunately there may not be too much that can be done about that. People will always have different views. I'm sure there are plenty people here that despise me, in fact I know there used to be haha. Best I can suggest is try to not let it get too affecting, and if serious harassment occurs, get screenshots, videos, whatever you can of the situation, and try opening a support ticket and see where it goes.

    @chibizombie89 I will take your advice. And I believe you're right. I definately do not wish to become a person who doesn't enjoy this game at all and who got stuck trying to explain "what happened".

    Gosh Iam 27!There are many stuff going on with the world in the real life (just see who won the elections in America) and I will not see myself getting hurt by people (not refering to you) who doesn't know me at all. Started playing 4 years ago and met my in real life boyfriend. This and many good times I got from this game.

    So you're right.Best is to use the right channels to solve those problems.

    See again here you are focusing on the wrong thing... You just want to look at the word "low" but you are missing my point.

    All I am saying is that it's not right to come here and try to flame someone that you have a personal issue with, specially when this person has just been awarded by being a good, helpful player.

    If this was about you and someone did this to you, you wouldn't like it, would you?

    Come on...tell me... If you were the one getting the Community Legend award and someone came here and wrote an 500 words essay just to say how bad you are, and how you don't deserve this award... wouldn't you feel gutted?

    That's why I said it's low... you can say anything you want about him or anyone else but not on the Forums... this is not what the forums are for. You should try to ammend your problems with that person, privately, in game or anywhere else, but coming here and bashing against him is not the right thing to do. I disagree with your attitude and actions 100%.

    Here is a funny example...:

    Imagine Brad Pitt getting an award (not saying VS is anywhere like Brad Pitt but just an example..) and goes on stage to get his award but then his ex wife goes up and starts trashing him in front of everyone, saying how bad of a husband he was, how bad of a father he is, that he is abusive, that he has a bad temper, that he's into drugs etc blah blah blah....

    See my point?

    Just not the right time.. right place... and for the right people to hear/read.

    Ok that's all....

    I was taking care of it...

    @muralasa89 I know it may be enticing to respond back to it, but it'd be better if nothing is said. I really don't want to have to start removing posts again. I'm trying to defuse this before it gets worse.

    And to everyone else who may want to say something to anyone else about their opinion on this matter, whether you agree or disagree, just please don't. I understand you may or may not like who was chosen, but let's not start a flame war.
