copy of older info

This post exists as an archive copy of some of the information from my other blogs (which are currently listed as private http://entropiatrash.wordpress.com and it’s little brother, http://entropiarelated.wordpress.com) that were at one point in time linked to from the main scammer and cheats list at https://entropiascams.wordpress.com/2015/01/02/entropia-scammers-list/ This post exists as a means to publicly re-list the older archived info below to the public in a publicly accessible blog so that readers of this blog won’t have to request access to the private blog(s) to find the info listed below. I know that sounds kinda confusing, and it is, but not really all that confusing. Happy reading:

=======================================

DONE with the archives…

I’m done trying to put any more archived crap related to Entropia Universe online from older blogs now.  Doing so is a bit of a hassle and it is older junk that not a lot of folks care about any more, but I did put out there what’s out there since some of it’s still relevant today as exploits, scams, and let downs continue daily… Going forward in the future, new stuff added to this or other blogs will be NEW STUFF… not old copies of junk from the past. HAPPY READING!🙂

ok, a few things will be re-added here from time to time when needed…
=-=-=-=-=-=-

Opening a few archives from the old trash heap and Entropiarelated stuff below… with a new blog per major category… That way it’ll be easier to shut off one of the blog’s contents easier than it was previously when all this stuff was combined in to one or two massive blog at ET and later ER….

Happy reading.  If you have complaints, and I’m sure you will, some of the blogs might have comment sections, others might not. Some content may be duped (especially if it was in multiple categories previously), other content – maybe not.  Will it all get edited later on down the road, maybe, maybe not… either way, now it’s time for releasing these demons for more eyes than my own as there is a hell of a lot of history and work that went in to this old blogging crap a few years back…  and creating multiple blogs on each topic will allow me to add more info to each later if I feel the need.




 

Massive Blunder by Mindark…

edit: at the time of this edit, 4/6/2016, even though Massive Inc. has been out of business since 2010 http://legal.entropiauniverse.com/legal/privacypolicy.xml  still says:

At the time of this posting, 8/30/2012, Entopia Universe’s website still indicates that it is working with the now defunct Massively Incorporated…

‘Massive’ was an ‘in game’ advertising system that Entropia and several other mmorpgs used a few years ago. Massive went out of business in 2010, but Mindark’s website for Calypso still shows this thing as active today, two years later!

At the time of this writing, http://www.planetcalypso.com/guides/business-trade/advertising/ says:

Real World Advertising
You will also see real world advertising on Planet Calypso provided by Massive Incorporated. An option is included in the Client Loader to enable or disable these ads. However, enabling the ads allows access to higher loots. When you disable ads in the Client Loader you disable both colonist created ads and real world ads.

All the ads can be viewed on the Ad Display Boards located in all the major outposts on Calypso.

Of course the link that should be where it says ‘this link’ above isn’t there on their site since it probably linked to a now defunct company’s website. What is sort of disturbing about this is how a company that claims to have a very secure system doesn’t keep it’s own website up-to-date, and more disturbing than that is the fact that information about participants/avatars in game might possibly still be getting shared with a non-existent company that was previously owned and/or associated with Microsoft even though if all that it is is non-personally identifiable info (Microsoft bought out Massive before Massive went out of business).

Interestingly, one of the links above was found to be at the top of google when there is a search for the terms entropia ads… Mindark recently sold 60,000 Calypso Land Deeds to participants in the virtual universe for a total of 100.00 USD each, i.e. they sold those for 6 Million dollars to raise money to start a huge advertising campaign. Now, one of their websites that is at the top of google that is directly about advertising is advertising what appears to be false information… smooth move…

http://transmediacrosstheworld.blogspot.com/2012/03/truth-about-marika-total-fiction.html

After the broadcast, Sverige Television ordered a study on this show and asked Swedish people if they thought Marika’s story really happened or not.

29% were aware it was a fiction
30% were thinking they were involved in a true inquiry and were searching clues on the web, thinking it would help the police.
24% claimed it was real
17% were not able to make the difference between what was true and what wasn’t.

Yes, this seems incredible. This is the problem with this kind of concept : when you play with people and their credulity, then can get angry and feel fooled…

https://truthaboutmarika.wordpress.com/2011/12/11/pretend-that-it-is-real/

Britta Svensson, columnist of Swedish paper Expressen, in her October 29th, 2007 column, wrote ‟This “scandal” seems to be part of the drama in which SVT in a way that has never happened before trying to fool viewers by relaxing the boundary between fiction and reality. It’s completely idiotic. People disappear without a trace is a reality that news programs sometimes need to report on. To then pretend that it is true that SAPO (Swedish security service) silences the truth about the 20,000 missing Swedes is purely irresponsible.’’

Swedish Gambling Authority

The content of this letter is not to be considered a legally binding document. The Swedish Gambling Authority has investigated the “Loot” system in Entropia Universe in journal number 13Li3786. The investigation was closed on the 30 of October 2013.

The Swedish gambling market is regulated by The Swedish lottery act (1994:1000). The general rule is that lotteries must not be arranged except by permit (Section 9, Lotteries Act). Permits may in principle only be granted to non-profit making associations whose activities are for the public benefit (Section 15, Lotteries Act), it is thus not sufficient for a permit to be granted that the proceeds of the lottery are applied for charitable purposes.

There are two possibilities for The Swedish Gambling Authority to act in cases of suspicion of crime, one is to submit to the suspect with a penalty (Vite) the second one is to notify the police. To submit the suspect with penalty it is required to that the offense has been committed within Swedish jurisdiction, this means a server is located in Sweden or the person or company that offers the lottery lives in Sweden.
It also requires an exact moment when the crime has been committed. It is, therefore, necessary to secure documentation of a Swedish player who lives in Sweden when he or her wins “Loots” in order to prove that the location of the criminal act is within the Swedish jurisdiction and that the legal person responsible for lottery is Swedish. The Swedish Gambling Authority would likely need to dedicate an employee on full-time to play in Entropia Universe before the possibility of gaining loots in Entropia Universe. It has to been proved that the actual legal person which is responsible for lottery is Swedish, in this case, MindArk and that it is not arranged by a foreign subsidiary to MindArk. This would require a thorough investigation concerning MindArks corporate structures.

Anyone may make a police report at suspicion of a criminal offense. It is likely to assume that the circumstance needs to be proven up to the level which is mentioned above in order for the Swedish court to decide on a punishment on a suspected crime. The Swedish Gambling Authority has come to the conclusion that current circumstances isn´t sufficient evidence to make a police report, if you wish to make a police report, please notice attached contact details below

Circumstances of the case Entropia Universe has been put forward for head of department in the case of how the matter should be handled. Head of operational department which is responsible for the prioritization and allocation of resources, has decided that The Swedish Gambling Authority currently does not have the opportunity to further investigate the matter with reference to the extensive resource case would take.

However, the Official Avatar Guidelines clearly state the following:

Private Accounts are registered by the Employee as a private person before time of employment. In addition to Rules for Holding Entropia Universe Employee Accounts, the following rules apply to Private Accounts:

* Account freeze. This account cannot be used by the Employee or anyone else while the person is employed at MindArk, the Planet Partner, Marketing Partner or similar. Therefore, the account will be frozen during time of employment.
* No withdrawal. This account may be used again after termination of employment.
* Must not use internal know-how. No information or know-how obtained under the employment can be used to obtain benefits when using Entropia Universe after employment.

I know of several secret avatars, and some who have more than one, along with actually being a member of a real society. MS9 (regular avatar) has also enjoyed hunting excursions, and that was after this particular secret avatar revealed themselves to me as a result of what they were witnessing at an EU gathering and wanted to know more. At first, I had no clue who I was talking to, because I had never seen or known them prior to this date, but they were there undercover as a result of hearing some things through the grapevine to validate what was being told, and they did.

Who it is doesn’t matter, especially since I now have the Official Avatar Guidelines in print as a result of becoming an official avatar with the Cyrene Writing Team in the past. I have total respect for Ed for giving us (his team) the responsibility of adhering to the guidelines to a T, and not push the envelope, it was very important to him that we all stay within the guidelines and not give reason for MindArk to challenge us.

Besides my official avatar, I had a secret avatar, and I was a newbie. Other than being immortal and unable to die, we didn’t have the high-end skills or given items that others had (basically Calypso personnel), and we also at that time didn’t have the golden stars above out heads as officials. That came after I had resigned a year later. However, you could tell we were official avatars by our names and the orange text in chat. We also were very limited in what we could do inside the universe as officials, and were even restricted from healing others to be helpful. This was Ed’s dictate, and I respect him for that, because even though these activities were happening on Calypso, they weren’t going to happen to Cyrene officials and place ourselves in positions of vulnerability, or even the appearance of impropriety – I agreed with him. We had vehicles for mobility, but could not participate in any activities such as hunting, mining or crafting, and basically became ambassadors for Cyrene, but my mission was writing, so I was not that bothered by it until there was too much of a lull in time with the official writing.

Therefore, I had amazing fun with my secret avatar who was free to travel to all planets to gain experience as to how it all worked, and even found myself an amazing Mentor who taught me more about the game in that year than I ever learned on my own with my regular avatar over the years. I was never a Disciple to anyone over the years, and during this experience, I did graduate the discipleship and felt pretty good about it. This person did not know who I was, nor could I reveal myself to them. It was an amazing adventure for me

Of particular interest in the above is the revelation that ‘secret avatars’ move freely in the universe and aren’t stuck to one planet, influence the market in various ways such as being disciples to others, thereby giving the mentor avatar somewhat unique ‘free’ items when the disciple graduates which other mentors are not getting, etc.

==================================

the quote from Rafael


Excerpt from an email that I received from Rafael Espinosa de los Monteros Iglesias, CEO of Pyxel Arts, on June 8, 2011:

“Our employees are playing (and some have played for a long time) in Entropia Universe. We believe it’s important for any planet partner to do so, to check and understand other planets and players’

The above quote was in response to an email I sent to him asking if planet partners, or their employees were allowed to participate in Entropia Universe with their own personal avatars…

This is very revealing since Planet Partners determine what items are in the various loot pools…

http://www.neverdie.com/neverdie-studio-news/6817-may-20011-q.html

19. Once and for all who determines items that drop in RT/NI loot is it MA or NDS (For example if you wanted to add A-3 punisher MKII to drop from Forum trolls is it you guys or MA who would add this)

We determine which Mobs drop which items, that is essential for game design, we don’t control how or when, so we can’t predict when something will drop

That sort of ‘insider knowledge’ could be very useful to individuals that work for planet partners using their own avatar to gain a bit of an unfair advantage vs the non-planet partner participants inside of the virtual universe…

==================================

Mindark has removed the implication of ownership from the new Calypso Land Deeds… They still do speak of Land Ownership system, but it’s probably just a matter of time before that is changed as well.

The term owner has been changed to holder.
Old ownership deeds for apartments

A while back they did something similar with other estates in game… Apartments used to be ‘owned’ but now are ‘maintained’

Here’s what the old deeds used to look like:

A couple of big names in EU a while ago.
Marcus Slayem Aurelius = Pedophile millionaire
Colonel Lee Bowles = Slayem’s underage toyboy

Interestingly, most of the posts on the threads at Entropia Forum or Planet Calypso Forum usually are locked or deleted rather quickly by moderators because they don’t want the community or general public to really be aware that this type of thing ever took place in Entropia Universe… They like to hide the facts so that nothing negative is ever seen in relation to their beloved virtual universe as it may cause markup on various virtual assets to spiral downwards. Kinda sick when you think about how much the mods are willing to cover up to make everything look positive.


according to http://www.entropiadirectory.com/wiki/pilots/ the Slayem avatar holds Hangar #17 at Corinth, and according to http://www.entropiadirectory.com/wiki/vacant_shops/ the Bowles avatar holds Port Atlantis Mall, Floor 1, Shop #05 L. However, as the links at entropiadirectory are a few years old it’s possible that they have outdated information?

According to Private Messages with some individuals in some community forums, some of the items related to the whole Slayem Bowles Scandal ended up in Avatar Emma Peel’s avatar and were then traded off from that avatar in a variety of trades. I am not sure how true this is, but it seems possible based on some of the information I’ve read in various forum histories on the avatars related to this…

According to the source,

Emma got Atrox Land (Atrox Paradise) for…Angel Armor ultd. (?) back then and various stuff…I cant tell what exactly. Atrox Paradise sales thread 2010, Angel Armor sales thread 2011.

… Did MA ban her once for investigation at least ? If not, why ?

As swazer wrote Emma was a steady guest at Marc Collins Rectors house in London…who knows how and when items changed owners…outside of Entropia…



http://massively.joystiq.com/2009/08/15/planet-calypso-formerly-entropia-universe-converts-to-cryengin/2

interesting comments in the above article linked to above that were mentioned to me in a recent private message on forums related to entropia. I remember coming across that whole pedofile story several years back… Back then it was a big discussion in Entropiareality, a forum that no longer exist… Kinda scary stuff.

Luckily most of the community is not like that in entropia, especially since it’s mainly a game for 18+ year olds (although some kids do play on their parents avatars or have their own — Neverdie himself has essentially admitted to letting his kid use his own avatar in at least one news story in the past)…

although some are jaded in game due to getting irritated with constantly loosing money, etc, and since more and more police departments are putting sex offender lists together because sex offenders are all over the place, etc., you never know who you’ll run in to in game or what they might be in real life.

you may have no idea who is behind the avatar you are talking to in game, and it could be anyone – a cop, the president, a priest, a doctor, a lawyer, a judge, a truck driver, or a criminal who may be a sex offender, pedofile or identity thief, etc.. Be careful out there in virtual reality.

(re-added below info about toulan forum speculation from entropiarelated blog after the forum registration issue on toulan forum resurfaced… )
A little Birdie has brought it to my attention that it appears that Toulan’s forums may very well be run by the same forum owner behind entropiaforum and planetcalypsoforum

Over at http://www.toulanforum.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?37-Toulan-Forum was a “Forum set up and administration” thread that recently got moved to an area in the toulan forum that is not able to be viewed by the general public after the move occurred. That thread, before it was deleted, I am told had an interesting discussion that seemed to imply that 711/neomaven/Jason Peterson, the main guy behind ef and pcf was also running the show over on the new toulan forum at least as a forum administrator since some of the forum structure was the same as those forums and some of the links in banners were the same before they were altered – which seems to have occurred around the same time the thread linked to above was moved to where it can’t be viewed by the public….

This little birdie that told me these things even figured out how to make screen prints like all smart little angry forum troll birdies do…🙂

There’s another thread that seems to have similar implications at

http://www.toulanforum.com/forum/showthread.php?7-Main-page

Is the administrators behind TF the same guy as the administrator behind ef and pcf? I’m not sure, but it seems that if not, that guy/forum admin team has/have a very similar role and is quickly working to make tf’s links and banners that make tf seem like pcf or ef structure-wise and banner/link-wise go away very quickly every time a user reports it on tf… hmmm…

Another indication that the folks behind Entropiaforum/Planet Calypso Forum run Toulan Forum… compare below link to planetcalypsoforum rules:

5.7 – Trading Currencies
All prices must be expressed in PED (or EFD for EFD auctions). Sales threads or links with prices expressed in real-world currencies are NOT permitted, as this implies a transaction for cash outside of Entropia Universe approved channels, a violation of the EULA, and will be deleted without notice.

For those of you unaware of what the above meand, EFD is “Entropia Forum Dollar” which is fake/pretend forum currency that Entropia Forum used to sell/trade in exchange for services such as forum banners on entropia forum. At one point in time the guy behind the forum there even sold items in game in exchange for EFD, something that comes close to being, but is not quite breaking terms of eula for several reasons. EFD (Entropia Forum Dollars) and CFD (Planetcalypsoforum dollars) has not existed for a couple of years since the forum plugin using it on the servers behind both Entropia Forum, and Planetcalypso are non-functional/non-existent at the moment, even though there’s still a section of the forums dedicated to that stuff on PCF, (at least I guess there , until someone reads this and decides to delete that out of existence too?) http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?88-CFD-Auctions

extracted “Goldy” information from old EntropiaTrash Posting:
Trust Scams in Entropia Universe are scams that involve placing ‘trust’ in another person’s avatar through the ‘lending’ of peds (project entropia dollars), or items that have a ped value or market value in peds (Note that in Entropia Universe the PED is tied to the US Dollar in a 10:1 ratio, so PEDs have real world value) trusting that the other avatar will give you back the peds or item or something equivalent in the future. The scam part of this is when that other avatar does not give you back anything or gives you back something that is worth less, or less desirable than what you ‘trusted’ that they were going to give you. Trust scams exist in Entropia Universe since some participants want to partner with others in game for joint ventures, but there is no valid way for joint ownership of items to exist in game except through special systems such as shared deed system used in Calypso Land Deeds, Arkadia Underground Deeds, etc.

According to Mindark Support Mindark cannot do anything about trust scams since they see all trades in game as valid, even if they are trust scams.

June 5, 2011 Apology to the Community by Mr Nukem Quayjay for allowing a list posted on The Patriot’s website to be publicly viewable.
Internet Archive Link
Notes: The Black and Red List were originally created by the NBK group of societies and one of the leaders of the NBK gave the lists to Nukem to use, who then put it on his own society’s website. I believe that one of the lists was a list of avatars that NBK leadership had created as a ‘Kill on Sight’ list and that the other list was a list of avatars to not trade with for various reasons such as accusations of scamming, hurting the feelings of NBK leaders in various ways, etc. I believe that both lists and any list created based off of those lists were used to harass, control, and intimidate people in Entropia Universe in multiple ways, which might be seen as a violation of either the terms of use or eula. I believe that the ‘kill on sight’ lists were not just used to create weapon targets on PVP zones, but were also used in non-PVP zones to create targets for mob-training. It is unknown if these or any similar lists exist today since most such lists are kept on password protected society forums, etc. However, it is likely that such lists that are used to harass and abuse members of the community do still exist today in various forms. It is sad that suchcyberbullying exists. We, as a community should do something to stop this type of ongoing problem. Mindark as the developer of Entropia Universe, should also do something to stop this cyberbullying that is happening on their servers, especially since it is part of Mindark’s mission to ensure that “Both Planet Partners and the participants on the planets should always feel safe in their endeavors in Entropia Universe.”

November 14, 2009 Posting on PlanetCalypsoForum by Justin from Mindark
Internet Archive Link
Notes: This posting was a promise from Justin at Mindark that Mindark was aware of issues with booths that happened when version update 10 occurred and that Mindark was working on relocating them to pre version 9.4 positions. This posting also stated “There will be an upgrade to the booths in the near future.” The relocation did not work well since most buildings in game were turned around from where they were prior to version 10, and some were put in to awful positions where some estates were not even able to be viewed since the ground level was above the estates in the basements of some apartment buildings. The promised “upgrade” never happened… The “upgrade” wasn’t really an upgrade… it was an offer to “buy” an upgrade in item count on estates, and those that did buy in to that upgrade, which cost something like 2k ped did not see their estates upgraded for many months, if at all. If they would have increased item slot numbers freely, it would have been far more of an upgrade that seems to have been promised in Justin’s post.

Notes: This posting from Marco at Mindark indicates that First Planet Company (FPC) did not plan to open up a Planet Calypso Forum run by FPC as Mindark believed that the forum should be handled by the community itself. This is interesting because planetcalypsoforum.com was originally created as a copy of the database of the forum that originally existed at entropiaforum.com when FPC/Mindark did intend to buy the database and forum from the individual in the community that currently runs both Entropiaforum and Planetcalypsoforum. Apparently that sale deal never went through since that individual appears to still own the forums today in 2014.

Internet Archive of Axe Murderer’s Blog Copy of the Article
Notes: This was an article about CRD – Cyber Recreation Development Corp., which was to be a Planet Partner in Entropia Universe. That partnership fell through and never actually happened. The article indicates that there were extremely large goals with the project, which probably were not really obtainable, which may be part of the reason the CRD planet never saw the light of day. Part of the article stated:

CRD chief executive David Liu predicted that the virtual worlds will generate approximately 10,000 jobs in the mainland.
“An important aspect for this project is also the positive effects on our environment that we foresee,” Liu said. “People will actually be able to work from home inside Entropia Universe, as many people do today, even from rural areas, thereby decreasing the amount of pollution generated by travel.”

Notes: This was Mindark’s ‘official response’ about a raid on Mindark by the BSA Software Alliance that was done because the BSA believed that Mindark may have been using pirated software. A part of this press release states:

Benny Iggland, chairman of the supervisory board of MindArk AB says in a comment: “MindArk is prepared to sue Microsoft and the other companies for damages caused by their action. Proceedings from this process, which will certainly reach a substantial number of millions of United States Dollars, will be placed in the virtual universe of Project Entropia as a number of gigantic treasures that anyone entering the Universe of Project Entropia may find and grab.“

Removal of Personal Revival Terminals
It has been some rumors about removal of personal revival terminals and I got copy of something interesting here:MindArk wrote,
“We need to inform you about an item in your possession. The management has decided that the personal revival terminalswill not again be made operational and therefore we will now buy this item back from you.
You may choose between the sum of 5000 PED OR a Powerful Resurrection Chip. Please respons to this by sending us a supportticket within the next four weeks and let us know which of these two options you prefer.”

I think this compensation is good and I wonder about if the Resurrection chip will even be more usefull in the future.

MikassWhen that auction bug happened, one that froze the auction and didn`t allow people to further bid on the items, MA undone the auctions, giving back the items to ppl which sold for very low price. Maybe not really a compensation but at least took active role.I guess you can also take the tp fees split between hangars as a form of compensation.Also when that eMine event took place, MA compensated those who got screwed by overpaying for quest items due to MA`s fault. Some extra eMine sets were given as compensation.

Deer shop owners also got a Deer mall as compensation for their shop being removed, basically got a much better location with improved access.

There might have been other cases also, but just these come to mind atm.

The below ‘upgrade’ never came… The closest thing that happened was that Mindark asked for 2000 ped for an additional 20 slots to booths, but then they shut down that offer since they claimed that it was too hard on the server to keep that offer, even though at a later time due to a bug some estates were allowed to have thousands of items in them for at least a temporary timeframe,

which indicates to me at least, that the server could handle the higher amount of item slots in the booths but Mindark just didn’t want to follow through on this promised ‘upgrade’. Instead of following through on the promised upgrade Mindark instead made all non-booth estates have no rent due, adding insult to injuries since prior to that move the booths were one of the few estates in game that had no monthly rent due, and some booth owners bought them specifically for that reason…

=================================

Below is a list of a bunch of various links and information about a variety of Entropia Universe Scammers, Cheaters, Exploiters, and Conspiracies, both new and old.  This list is not ‘static’ as more items are added from time to time….

Note: Some Older Stuff isn’t in url format on the blog here yet (may never be) as it was copy/pasted from older blog(s) without being edited here (yet).  If you copy/paste links that aren’t links in to urls, they should work, at least in theory if the site in question hasn’t been changed/altered/deleted over time.   On most new additions to this list I’m trying to create Internet Archive Cached link copies or alternative Cache versions for historic purposes and future reference as many sites go dead or are altered by forum mods, etc. over time.  Cached copies show you the site as it was at the time that the original links were posted, before time (or those wishing to erase history and hide facts, etc.) erodes the content.

NEWER STUFF ON TOP (some ‘newer’ stuff is Old Stuff that just wasn’t mentioned here… If it’s new to you… Also, some ‘newer’ stuff is older stuff just reorganized in to more logical groupings, etc.):

Internet Archive Link

a few thread’s related to the ‘scannergate’ scandal and DA Manager. Yes, problem was supposedly cleaned up a long while back, but it’s a historically important thing for the community to keep in mind going forwards.

Also, it’s important to keep this type of thing in mind when more information is revealed as to just how many avatars in game are really Mindark employees or Planet Partners in disguise, and how they impact the economy in various ways, as discussed over at

(update to below – I believe that the ‘bugged deeds’ were removed from the game by Mindark. However, I’m not sure if any ‘compensation’ was given to those affected by this removal of in game assets?) Apparently ‘bugged deeds’ that don’t work properly that are tied to Next Island are floating around in Entropia Universe’s Real Cash Economy. More can be read about this over at http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/forums/showthread.php?265203-Bugged-Deeds&p=3287535&viewfull=1#post3287535 Internet Archive Copy of Page 1 Internet Archive Copy of Page 2, in which Narfi, one of the individuals affected since he sold the deeds, discusses the matter Internet Archive copy of page 4, in which Narfi lists screen prints of various communications he had with the buyer and with Mindark support team Entropiaplanet’s take on this situation Internet Archive link Based on what the thread says, it sounds as if Narfi acquired the deed in question from Neverdie as Neverdie Studios originally was helping Next Island develop Next Island before Next Island’s owner decided to stop developing it since it was a cash drain. If that is really what is going on, it seems that this situation is very similar to 2011 issue described athttp://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/forums/showthread.php?215835-Digital-Manager-Abduction-RT-LAs&p=2795526&viewfull=1#post2795526 in which Millstreet (Oboy Oboyto) explains how he was given stall deeds by DA Manager that DA Manager was not supposed to be using to be using to trade with as he was not authorized to trade with the deed in question.

This is just a quick post to let you know that we are working on it and sorry for any frustration caused by this delay.

Justin.

Mindark, all of the booths did not get placed back in to their pre-vu 9.4 positions as several buildings still are not rearranged the same way there were prior to this time.

A small compensation was done to some booth owners many, many months after vu 10 when booths went out of commission for many, many, many months, but that was to compensate for the booths not working at all as the booth owners were not able to ‘drop’ items in the booths during that problematic time (and it wasn’t really that big of a compensation vs the many months of downtime,etc.).

The purpose of this post is to ask you if you ever plan to do additional compensation to booth owners/holders for the advantage you took away from booth owners when you removed rent from all estates. Prior to that time booths were the only estates that acted like shops that had no monthly rent/upkeep fees. While I think, as a shop owner, that it was great that you removed monthly fees on running shops/apartments. As a booth owner, I feel you might want to do something to compensate booth owners for the rent fee removal since you essentially made the whole purpose of owning a booth prior to the removal of rent planet wide diminish greatly… you essentially made these cost savings booths that had no monthly rental fees become small storage closets vs other shops, etc. The removal of rent on non-booth shops lowered the booths’ value in game somewhat greatly… rent removal essentially gave all non-booth shops somewhat of an unfair advantage vs booth owners sort of as the whole purpose for the existence of the booths prior to the removal of rent was to be a shop without monthly rent…. That’s nerfing assets participants hold indirectly after it was already paid for by the current owner, etc.

Since Justin made this promise of an ‘upgrade’ and it never came, would it be possible that you could do some sort of free upgrade on booths across Calypso, either with free addition of new item points and/or do some form of compensation like a free shopkeeper for the booth holders or something… (which seems like might have been something that was done for Hadeshiem residents a while back when their booths weren’t acting right??) so that you keep this ‘promise’ of an upgrade that Justin made that was never honored?

Removal of Personal Revival Terminals

It has been some rumors about removal of personal revival terminals and I got copy of something interesting here:

MindArk wrote,
“We need to inform you about an item in your possession. The management has decided that the personal revival terminals

will not again be made operational and therefore we will now buy this item back from you.
You may choose between the sum of 5000 PED OR a Powerful Resurrection Chip. Please respons to this by sending us a support

ticket within the next four weeks and let us know which of these two options you prefer.”

I think this compensation is good and I wonder about if the Resurrection chip will even be more usefull in the future.

When that auction bug happened, one that froze the auction and didn`t allow people to further bid on the items, MA undone the auctions, giving back the items to ppl which sold for very low price. Maybe not really a compensation but at least took active role.

I guess you can also take the tp fees split between hangars as a form of compensation.

Also when that eMine event took place, MA compensated those who got screwed by overpaying for quest items due to MA`s fault. Some extra eMine sets were given as compensation.

Deer shop owners also got a Deer mall as compensation for their shop being removed, basically got a much better location with improved access.

There might have been other cases also, but just these come to mind atm.

STTS failed because the Josh relied way too much on auction selling instead of selling in other ways, and also because the overhead of tracking all the trades were extremely complex since there was so many items. I fondly remember standing in the mall auction room ‘waiting in line’ to trade tt items to him and to get the weekly payback. One way that this really worked, just like the EIF did at first before getting rid of the 90 day buyback, in my opinion is because TT price was paid up front by those running the show, so any losses were not any different then the ones MA itself would give you at the Trade Terminal.

Internet Archive Link

===========================
(note to self – down to 12 pages in to ‘notes’ document) (note to self – working on eventually moving entropiarelated links below to https://entropiascams.wordpress.com/2015/01/15/copy-of-older-info/ as entropiarelated blog is now set to private mode) (note to self – still need to check the rest of the http://euscammers.blogspot.com/ against the in game player registry sometime (although incognito mode may make that somewhat difficult to do?) ) There are many scams that exist in the Entropia Universe, just as there are many scams that exist in the real world. It would be impossible to list every scam since scammers in EU, just like in the real world are constantly trying new things to try to overcome their victim’s defenses. Here are just a few of the scams that are in EU that you might want keep on the watch for. TT Scam Don’t buy Trade Terminal (TT) or Technician items from others unless they ask for the Trade Terminal Value. The one exception to this, which is fairly new, is that some avatars believe they can sell Trade Terminal items to others if the tier on the item in question is higher than tier zero. Use caution in these sort of situations since most TT items are fairly low level, and not worth as much as the sellers might tell you they are worth. Check with the nearest TT and Technician to see what items they sell. The items available in both the TT and Technician occassionally change from Version Update (VU) to VU. Note.. this rule does not apply to stuff that used to be in a tt, npc trader, or technician but no longer is… in cases like that markup exists due to supply/demand… example: ngl grenade launcher, black clothes, unlimited tt weapons that were replaced by L weapons in tt like opalo, etc. Borrow Scam Don’t let others borrow items from you unless you are prepared to lose the item forever, and also are collecting collateral on the item in question that is at least the value in Markup that you would normally sell the item for – preferably more actually since higher collateral usually acts as a deterrent from the borrower from stealing the item outright as they want their peds or other form of collateral back from you. Mindark (MA) considers all trades to be final, so technically there is nothing in the game that allows borrowing or renting of items. Therefore, anyone involved in renting or borrowing anything is possibly participating in a scam at any point in time. However, many trustworthy avatars do exist, and borrow things from one another, rent things from one another, and many shop owners “borrow” items from others in “consignment” deals to sell the items in question in their shops, and the shop owners do pay back the original owners of the items in question many times, but sometimes they don’t… Like all things, trustworthiness is the most important factor here. If you don’t trust those you are trading with, don’t trade with them. That’s why the trade window has you press two confirm buttons before a person to person trade is finalized. That extra button gives you a chance to check to make sure the other avatar put in everything they said they would, and that you are 100% sure you do want this deal to go through. Upgrade Armor scam (*EDIT* Now, certain armor types can be colored…) Most (but not all) Armor cannot be upgraded, nor painted. However, newly introduced tier system does allow for armor, just like many other items, to be tiered, which is similar to an upgrade. If someone asks you to let them upgrade or paint your armor, watch out, it might be a scam. However, clothes can be painted and textured, so some avatars asking you to let them upgrade your clothes by painting it might not be scamming you, but you should ask for collateral if you do get in to a deal like that to make sure you get your stuff back. Otherwise, you might literally lose the shirt on your back. Skill Scam and other trade scams Empty skill chips are needed to put skills in when trading them. Sometimes scammers claim that they need you to provide them an empty skill implant chip so that they can fill it up and give you the skills. Be very careful in this situation to ask for collateral since ESIs have a very high market value. L Scam. Limited (L) items cannot be repaired. They “break” at around the time that their TT value drops to about 3% of their total TT max. These items are then unusable, and pretty much useless since they can’t be used and can’t be repaired. They become fancy junk to look at or to sell to the TT. Sometimes scammers put L items like this on the auction or in a shop after they are almost broken so that others will pay top value for them since the prices will be low as TT value is low, and they expect full Market Value for them… Don’t be tricked in to paying top dollar for something that’s broken that you can’t repair, unless maybe you have some special use for it.. for instance to hang on the walls of your apartment if you have an (L) item museum or something. All other uses for this stuff is non-existent. Investment Scam Sometimes avatars come up with big plans that require lots of peds. When that happens, they sometimes ask for other avatars to “invest” in their plan to help them get the capital needed to start up whatever their big idea is. Be very careful with this, especially if there is an initial cost that has no return on investment. Some of these investment plans are legit, and others are not. Even then, they all are run differently. Just remember that MA considers all trades to be final, so if someone does get you involved in something like this, and they take all your peds and give you nothing back ever, the “trade” that was used to get your money might probably be considered a legit trade so there might not be anything you can do to get your money back. Be careful. Below is a list of links to various forum threads, websites, and other online places discussing scams, cheats, investment funds (trust scam magnets), unfair treatment, bugs, exploits, various conspiracies and other injustices related to Entropia Universe or the Entropia Universe Community (and/or similar online games and gaming communities).  I will attempt to create an internet archive link or some other form of archiving for every link when possible so that the information about these various scams won’t disappear over time as various sites listed in the links come and go. This list exists for historic purposes and so that the community is aware that such issues have occurred and are likely to occur again.  The Project Entropia Dollar is tied to the US dollar in a 10:1 ratio so scams that exist in the virtual world are usually scams involving real world money, and should be treated as such… Please note that this list is a living document so additions and deletions to the list will be periodically made. I will attempt to keep my own comments or accusatory thoughts related to each link to a minimum (at least on the top parts of the list) when possible so that the list is fairly clean and easy to read, and so that you can, for the most part, create your own opinions about the linked material… ….

Writer seeking wacky sickos or is someone impersonating the writer?

Seems that a couple of recent threads on planetcalypsoforum have been closed by moderators after a writer asked for contact info about the wacky sickos Colonel Bowles and Marcus Slayem Aurelius from many years ago.

http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/forums/showthread.php?262820-Wonder-where-ColonelBowles-is-these-days&p=3265574&viewfull=1#post3265574

http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/forums/showthread.php?262767-Writer-trying-to-find-more-information-on-Marcus-Slayem-Aurelius&p=3265078&viewfull=1#post3265078

However, the two threads in question are from a completely new individual on the forum as the two threads in question are the only threads the individual has ever posted, so it appears that the threads may be from someone impersonating the writer/blogger especially since the first posting in the threads in question left an email address?

However, the writer in question did post a comment asking about it here on this blog too so it’s a legit question from a legit writer, so I’m going to post a few things about this…

For those in the community with no clue on who Bowles and Slayem are/were here’s some interesting reading you may want to check out:

Apparently from a few years back the two avatars in question were related to a big happening in which a pedophile was involved in Entropia Universe:

A couple of big names in EU a while ago.
Marcus Slayem Aurelius = Pedophile millionaire
Colonel Lee Bowles = Slayem’s underage toyboy

Below are a few links where more reading can be done on this and related issues:
Apparently Marc Collins Rector is currently working on a Sci-Fi Novel called Change Hope that is available on Amazon.

Interestingly, most of the posts on the threads at Entropia Forum or Planet Calypso Forum usually are locked or deleted rather quickly by moderators because they don’t want the community or general public to really be aware that this type of thing ever took place in Entropia Universe… They like to hide the facts so that nothing negative is ever seen in relation to their beloved virtual universe as it may cause markup on various virtual assets to spiral downwards. Kinda sick when you think about how much the mods are willing to cover up to make everything look positive.

Not sure if the below is accurate or not, and cannot verify it at the moment since my avatar is on Arkadia instead of Calypso, but according tohttp://www.entropiadirectory.com/wiki/pilots/ the Slayem avatar holds Hangar #17 at Corinth, and according to http://www.entropiadirectory.com/wiki/vacant_shops/ the Bowles avatar holds Port Atlantis Mall, Floor 1, Shop #05 L. However, as the links at entropiadirectory are a few years old it’s possible that they have outdated information? If the avatars in question actually do hold these estates, perhaps that is why the writer is looking for a way to contact them? However, since I don’t know for sure if they do own the estates in question, this is only speculation. Perhaps if both avatars still do own the estates, they will log in and sell them off as Vixen did about two years ago after everyone thought Vixen’s avatar was unable to log in as it was an alt avatar,


or alternatively Mindark will just sell off the estates through the newly established liquidation avatar that’s used to sell off virtual assets of avatars that no longer can log in as their account was shut down? If the avatars don’t own the estates in question, perhaps it’d be interesting to discover when the entropiadirectory info was updated and when the estates in question were sold so as to determine when the last time was that the avatars in question did log in and sell the places?

Of course, the folks that regularly read pcf likely won’t see this post since entropiarelated has been added to the banned/censored word list over on that forum just like it’s predecessor, entropiatrash was as pcf is run by forum nazis (the guy behind the vixen scam actually owns the forum) who like to hide the facts about anything negative in their virtual universe…

In general though What that means as far as I understand it regarding ROCKtropia and NEVERDIE Studios is that all of our Private Avatars must cease to engage in all End User Game Play activities, excluding perhaps logging in to manage pre-exisiting assets, until such time that employment is terminated.

Adrian Jacobs In June 2009, the estate of Adrian Jacobs, a children’s author who died in 1997, sued Rowling’s publishers, Bloomsbury, for £500 million, accusing her of having plagiarised “substantial parts” of his work in writing the novel Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.[23][24] In a statement, Jacobs’s family claimed that a scene in Goblet of Fire was substantially similar to Jacobs’s book The Adventures of Willy the Wizard: Livid Land: “‘Both Willy and Harry are required to work out the exact nature of the main task of the contest which they both achieve in a bathroom assisted by clues from helpers, in order to discover how to rescue human hostages imprisoned by a community of half-human, half-animal fantasy creatures.”[24] Wikinews has related news: Scholastic sued for Harry Potter copyright infringement They also launched a joint suit against Rowling and her publishers. Bloomsbury countered with a statement of its own, saying that “This claim is without merit and will be defended vigorously,” and that Rowling “had never heard of Adrian Jacobs nor seen, read or heard of his book Willy the Wizard until this claim was first made in 2004, almost seven years after the publication of the first Harry Potter book.”[24] The Jacobs estate, driven by his son and grandson, have published a website with details and excerpts from the book, according to the Toronto Star.[25] In July 2010, the estate filed suit against Rowling’s American publisher, Scholastic, demanding that the company burn all copies of Goblet of Fire.[26] On January 6, 2011, the US lawsuit against Scholastic was dismissed. The judge in the case stated that there simply wasn’t enough similarity between the two books to make a case for plagiarism.[27] In the UK courts, on March 21, 2011, Paul Allen, a trustee of the Jacobs estate, was ordered to pay as security to the court 65% of the costs faced by Bloomsbury and Rowling, amounting to over £1.5million, to avoid the claim being struck out.[28] It was reported in The Bookseller[29] that Paul Allen has appealed against paying this sum. As a condition of the appeal, he paid £50,000 to the court in May 2011. [30] The claim was formally struck out in July 2011 after the deadline for Allen’s initial payment was missed. [31]

Harry Potter plagiarism claim struck out Paul Allen, who claimed a Harry Potter plot was lifted from another book, failed to meet a court payment deadline Share 33 Press Association guardian.co.uk, Monday 18 July 2011 10.10 EDT Article history Harry Potter fans buying The Goblet of Fire when it first hit bookshops in July 2000 Harry Potter fans buying The Goblet of Fire when it first hit bookshops in July 2000. Photograph: Jill Connelly/AP A claim that JK Rowling lifted the plot of one of her Harry Potter books from the work of another writer has been struck out after the claimant failed to meet a deadline for paying the first instalment of £1.5m into court as security for costs. The court of appeal ordered last week that the claimant, Paul Allen, trustee of the estate of Adrian Jacobs, who died in 1997, should pay the first part of the money into court by 4pm on Friday last week, or the case would be struck out. The claim has now failed as no payment was made. The move marks the end of a bitterly fought battle in which Rowling was accused of having lifted the plot of the fourth book in the series – Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire – from Jacobs’s book, Willy the Wizard. She and her publisher, Bloomsbury, had faced a demand for more than A$1bn (£659m) in damages. Solicitor David Hooper, a partner with the law firm Reynolds Porter Chamberlain, which represented Bloomsbury, said: “They have not paid the money into court. “The whole thing is a scandal – it has been going on for seven years. It was an absolutely ludicrous case.” The claimants had spent well over £1m, he said. Rowling has described the claim that her book was copied from Willy the Wizard as “not only unfounded but absurd”, and said she had never even seen the book until Allen’s claim was launched in 2004. Her solicitor, Gideon Benaim, a partner at Schillings, said: “An enormous amount of time has been wasted having to defend against this claim, when it was quite obvious to us from the outset that it had no chance of success. “As the judge noted, those behind the claim set about publicising the case with a view to exerting pressure and promoting their ‘book’. Quite how they ever thought that we would succumb to pressure indicates a complete lack of understanding on their part. We are glad that the substantive action is now at an end.” Mr Justice Kitchin ordered the payment into court in March, saying that Allen should pay security for 65% of the costs faced by Rowling and her publisher, Bloomsbury. There were to be three staged payments – the first, of £322,691 for Bloomsbury’s costs and £571,613 for Rowling’s costs, to be made by 21 April; the second, £24,650 for Bloomsbury’s costs and £178,441 for Rowling’s costs, to follow by 5 August; and the final payments, of £129,373 for Bloomsbury’s costs and £318,975 for Rowling’s, to be made by 11 November. The court of appeal rejected the appeal against that decision last Thursday, saying the first payment should be made by 4pm on Friday or the case would be struck out. The same claim had already been comprehensively rejected in the US, where a judge in the Manhattan-based US district court for the southern district of New York said that “the contrast between the total concept and feel of the works is so stark that any serious comparison of the two strains credulity”. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was 734 pages long while the Willy the Wizard book consisted of just 16 pages of text, the judge said. He added that the Willy the Wizard book was “entirely devoid of a moral message or intellectual depth”, in contrast to Goblet of Fire, a cumulative work in which one scene built on another, the storyline was highly developed and complex, and there was “a highly developed moral core” and overarching messages were conveyed through the plot. Mr Justice Kitchin, sitting in the chancery division of the high court, had ordered the security for costs payment after having rejected an application by Rowling and Bloomsbury for summary judgment, although he thought the plagiarism claim had an “improbable” chance of success. But he also made it clear that he was unhappy with the way the litigation was being conducted, and the behaviour of Allen and people associated with him. Allen, he said, was a nominal claimant – he was in truth suing for the benefit of another. But the evidence from Allen, a property developer, about the means available to him and those supporting him, was “far from full or candid”. There were also indications of a want of good faith on the part of Allen and those associated with him, and those behind the claim “have also engaged in what I think the defendants fairly describe as thinly veiled threats to publicise the allegation that Ms Rowling has engaged in plagiarism”. David Markson, literary agent for the Jacobs estate, and his brother, Max Markson, a public relations executive in Australia, had tried to pressure Rowling into a settlement and had warned that failure to settle the claim would lead to “unwelcome publicity”, the judge said.

———————– In a recent thread on Planetcalypsoforum someone has asked Mindark to list all of it’s employee avatars. http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/forums/showthread.php?263048-MA-employee-avatar-name-list&p=3267953&viewfull=1#post3267953 This is something that has been asked many times before in various forums over the years, but is something that Mindark still refuses to do, or even acknowledge the question about in some cases. (Hey Kim, if you are reading this, we are still waiting for your answers from the 2011 thread that you ‘locked’ until you got a response from your superiors about this type of thing… As mentioned in some previous posts, there is some interesting discussion on this topic on EntropiaPlanets by MS9 who used to work for a Planet Partner… However, there’s nothing ‘official’ anywhere from Mindark or any ‘real’ and ‘active’ planet partners on the subject out there other than a subtle hint about things from Rocktropia from a few years back on a web page that no longer really exists except in the internet caches of various search engines that went something like this:

It has been brought to my attention that the Planet Partner Agreement strictly Prohibits Planet Owners or planet Partner Employees from Playing Entropia universe with private Avatars… IF Mindark Choose to make public the specifics of this agreement, then that is up to them. In general though What that means as far as I understand it regarding ROCKtropia and NEVERDIE Studios is that all of our Private Avatars must cease to engage in all End User Game Play activities, excluding perhaps logging in to manage pre-exisiting assets, until such time that employment is terminated. All Official (Non Private) NDS or ROCktropia Avatars will be subject to Severe restrictions. (Management, Demo, Guide, Test, Roleplay Avatars, etc) Further Clarification will be provided here if appropriate or necessary. 1) It is Possible to Create an Official Avatar for NEVERDIE or other NDS Employees to be used to enter the World and Chat with the community

Since the webpage in question that listed that no longer appears to exist, it’s highly likely that no ‘further clarification will be provided here’ as here is no longer where it was previously… One of the reasons that this type of thing is important is that it has an impact on how people view the mmo, and the folks running it as well as the community… In a recent internet search I came across the blog entry athttp://blogtropia.blogspot.com/2007/04/resellers-scammers-leeches.html While I think most of the information in comments part of the blog entry are way off from reality, it’s interesting to see what the general public thought of Entropia way back in 2007… (and may still today as sometimes these types of perceptions continue to exist for many years?)…

Finkle said… Don’t you people realize by now that it is Mindark employees doing the reselling/scamming in this game? It is Mindark alone that profits from this game. The “uber” players in the game are the ones that work for Mindark. I have noticed from the beginning how they operate. The day you download this program and get put at Port Atlantis you are immediately approached by employees of Mindark posing as old players. They shuffle you over to the sweat camp and show you how to sweat. You do that until you can’t stand it anymore. Then they buy your sweat or you sell it to some other person for next to nothing, buy yourself a weapon and ammo from the trade terminal, go out and start hunting the animals, only to discover your ammo runs out and weapon breaks without you having made even 1/10 of what you need to repair them and buy more ammo. Then back to sweating, usually people who go through this cycle a couple of time will end up depositing money. The minute you do, scammers flock over and try to steal your money in some way or another. Make no mistake, there are mostly employees of mindark, they know EXACTLY when you deposit, and don’t show their faces until you do. I have watched the tactics they use and see the light. The avatars you meet and put on your friend list are more times than not the SAME employee. Just watch how on your friends list two or three people seem to log out at exactly the same time. Then a minute later when their computer reboots they log back in at the same time, with a slight delay in between. Look at how the same avatars can’t hold up individual conversations with you at the same time, they have a hard time trying to keep up with both conversations. I have actually seen one avatar answer a question that I asked ANOTHER avatar!! The staff of mindark sit around and create accounts all day, scam newbies, manipulate the market, get Hall of Fames to entice you to keep playing, and you are a HUGE TOOL if you play their rigged game. You are better off driving down the street tossing dollars out the window. You stand a much better chance of NOT losing your money than if you play this game. STAY AWAY FROM THIS GAME, DON’T BE A MINDARK TOOL!!!

I don’t believe Mindark employees participate on the level that Finkle indicated, but it’s interesting to see that someone thought that… and that that view is out there… all the while Mindark stays Mum, at least in regards to creating a ‘list’ of all of the Mindark and Planet Partner avatars… (I personally believe that they do this in part because Mindark claims to track the avatars Planet Partners run but really are not doing so at the level that they should be in order to uphold their commitment to making the community ‘feel safe in their endeavors’) Transparency can be a good thing in situations like these. However, Mindark is Mindark and it’s business as usual, so it’s likely nothing will ever change on this matter…

Warning on PCF about estates being raided by old deed holder if they left the place furnished…

http://www.planetcalypsoforum.com/forums/showthread.php?264812-You-do-not-own-an-estate-you-buy-nor-the-contents-in-it!&p=3284297&viewfull=1#post3284297 – apparently if the old holder of an estate leaves an untradeable item in the place, they can come back later after they trade the place and raid it of any stuff you put in it after you claim it in Entropia Universe at this point in time. This is a HUGE problem potentially since it might be leading to the the theft of tons of virtual items by robber barrons holding apartment deeds. Hopefully Mindark will fix this problem.

Estates in Entropia Universe have a very, very long history of not working correctly. At some point in time I may post some links to various discussions of these many problems throughout the history of Entropia Universe. It is things like this that make us question if Mindark is living up to it’s promise that both Planet Partners and the participants on the planets should always feel safe in their endeavors in Entropia Universe.

Links to various historical interviews, Q&A sessions, Dev Comments and Quotes, Dev Notes, etc.

Below is a list of various articles, Interviews, Q&A Sessions, Dev Notes, and a number of different Developer Comments as well as community commentary on various things related to Entropia Universe over the years. The goal here is primarily to preserve a bit of Entropia Universe’s history as much of that is being torn down over time as older websites disappear, get taken over by new management and urls change, etc. I will try to add internet archive links to each article as articles are added (when possible) to this list so that copies of the articles are available in the Internet Archives ‘way back machine’ in case the original articles get moved, deleted, etc.

June 5, 2011 Apology to the Community by Mr Nukem Quayjay for allowing a list posted on The Patriot’s website to be publicly viewable.
Internet Archive Link
Notes: The Black and Red List were originally created by the NBK group of societies and one of the leaders of the NBK gave the lists to Nukem to use, who then put it on his own society’s website. I believe that one of the lists was a list of avatars that NBK leadership had created as a ‘Kill on Sight’ list and that the other list was a list of avatars to not trade with for various reasons such as accusations of scamming, hurting the feelings of NBK leaders in various ways, etc. I believe that both lists and any list created based off of those lists were used to harass, control, and intimidate people in Entropia Universe in multiple ways, which might be seen as a violation of either the terms of use or eula. I believe that the ‘kill on sight’ lists were not just used to create weapon targets on PVP zones, but were also used in non-PVP zones to create targets for mob-training. It is unknown if these or any similar lists exist today since most such lists are kept on password protected society forums, etc. However, it is likely that such lists that are used to harass and abuse members of the community do still exist today in various forms. It is sad that such cyberbullying exists. We, as a community should do something to stop this type of ongoing problem. Mindark as the developer of Entropia Universe, should also do something to stop this cyberbullying that is happening on their servers, especially since it is part of Mindark’s mission to ensure that “Both Planet Partners and the participants on the planets should always feel safe in their endeavors in Entropia Universe.”

November 14, 2009 Posting on PlanetCalypsoForum by Justin from Mindark
Internet Archive Link
Notes: This posting was a promise from Justin at Mindark that Mindark was aware of issues with booths that happened when version update 10 occurred and that Mindark was working on relocating them to pre version 9.4 positions. This posting also stated “There will be an upgrade to the booths in the near future.” The relocation did not work well since most buildings in game were turned around from where they were prior to version 10, and some were put in to awful positions where some estates were not even able to be viewed since the ground level was above the estates in the basements of some apartment buildings. The promised “upgrade” never happened… The “upgrade” wasn’t really an upgrade… it was an offer to “buy” an upgrade in item count on estates, and those that did buy in to that upgrade, which cost something like 2k ped did not see their estates upgraded for many months, if at all. If they would have increased item slot numbers freely, it would have been far more of an upgrade that seems to have been promised in Justin’s post.

Notes: This posting from Marco at Mindark indicates that First Planet Company (FPC) did not plan to open up a Planet Calypso Forum run by FPC as Mindark believed that the forum should be handled by the community itself. This is interesting because planetcalypsoforum.com was originally created as a copy of the database of the forum that originally existed at entropiaforum.com when FPC/Mindark did intend to buy the database and forum from the individual in the community that currently runs both Entropiaforum and Planetcalypsoforum. Apparently that sale deal never went through since that individual appears to still own the forums today in 2014.

Internet Archive of Axe Murderer’s Blog Copy of the Article
Notes: This was an article about CRD – Cyber Recreation Development Corp., which was to be a Planet Partner in Entropia Universe. That partnership fell through and never actually happened. The article indicates that there were extremely large goals with the project, which probably were not really obtainable, which may be part of the reason the CRD planet never saw the light of day. Part of the article stated:

CRD chief executive David Liu predicted that the virtual worlds will generate approximately 10,000 jobs in the mainland.
“An important aspect for this project is also the positive effects on our environment that we foresee,” Liu said. “People will actually be able to work from home inside Entropia Universe, as many people do today, even from rural areas, thereby decreasing the amount of pollution generated by travel.”

These were big ideas for back then. Some of that vision has come to life now that space exists and ships with multiple crew members can pilot them, even if the crew does not contain 100 avatars simultaneously logged in on motherships yet.

March 29, 2005 Gamespot article: MindArk threatens MS with suit over raid
Internet Archive Link
Notes:This article talks about the BSA Raid charges being dropped and that Mindark is still considering a countersuit against Microsoft and the BSA.

EntropiaPlanet’s Wiki Copy of June 26, 2002 Press Release from Mindark
Internet Archive Link
Notes: This was Mindark’s ‘official response’ about a raid on Mindark by the BSA Software Alliance that was done because the BSA believed that Mindark may have been using pirated software. A part of this press release states:

Benny Iggland, chairman of the supervisory board of MindArk AB says in a comment: “MindArk is prepared to sue Microsoft and the other companies for damages caused by their action. Proceedings from this process, which will certainly reach a substantial number of millions of United States Dollars, will be placed in the virtual universe of Project Entropia as a number of gigantic treasures that anyone entering the Universe of Project Entropia may find and grab.“

Kill Stealing is a problem in Entropia Universe..

In Entropia Universe Hunting and Looting what you hunt is one of the main 3 professions tied to loot pools. The other main “professions” are mining and crafting.

In order to hunt a creature (MOB) in Entropia Universe you must have a weapon, use the weapon on the creature you want to kill enough to get its health level down to zero. After that you have a certain amount of time to loot the dead creatures body before it disappears. When you loot the body you will either receive what the creature was carrying, or get a system message that the creature was not carrying any loot.

The way that Hunting currently works is that any avatar can cause damage to any mob at any time if they have a weapon that has enough Trade Terminal (TT) value left on it that it can be decayed. At the current time most hunting equipment in game can be decayed down to 3% of its maximum value before the item in question needs to be repaired (Previously some Skill Increase Bonus (SIB) Unlimited items only decayed to 50%, but Mindark changed that so that those items now decay down to 3% before needing repair). Unlimited items can repaired at a Repair Terminal with PEDs (Project Entropia Dollars) or PECs (Project Entropia Cents) depending on what the maximim TT value of the item in question is and how much it will cost to repair it as you can repair most items only part of the way instead of all of the way, even though they may not necessarily function as well at lower TT values according to some theories. There are 100 PECs in every PED, and 10 PEDs is equivalent roughly to 1 US Dollar so when items are decayed in hunting REAL MONEY is being spent. The monetary values on items’ TT Values are put in to the game when participants of Entropia Universe deposit money in to the system via one of several types of deposit methods such as Credit Cards, Paypal, etc.

In order to ‘claim’ the loot of a mob as your own in such a way that other avatars cannot loot the mob you killed you currently need to damage the MOB by at least 50% of the MOB’s Health, or at least do enough damage that is closer to 50% of the health than others have done before it died if multiple avatars are trying to kill the same mob (some Mobs that have high amounts of health take a long time to kill, especially large event Mobs such as EOMON which have thousands of health points that have to be destroyed before they are killed). If you only do 49% damage or less and someone else does more damage than you did to the MOB before it died, the other avatar that damaged the mob may be able to claim the mob’s loot instead of you. The act of doing damage to mobs that other avatars are hunting in order to outdo the other avatar on damage so that you can claim the MOBs loot is called “Kill Stealing” because in involves killing the mob with more damage than the other avatar and then stealing the dead MOB’s loot.

There have been many Kill Steals done throughout the history of Entropia Universe, both big and small. Big Events such as the yearly Migration Season that brings out the EOMON is one type of Event in which that type of activity happens a lot. Because of that, threads in forums and websites complaining about kill stealing happen almost like clockwork when big events enter the game.

In a recent post by Hardwrath on Entropiaplanets and Planetcalypsoforum, in which Hardwrath points out an example of Kill Stealing that occurred on a MOB he was hunting that was looted by Saoirse, Hardwrath suggests that the newly implemented in game friend list and chat system be used to send offline messages to all members of a society, or at least the society leaders, that Kill Stealers are in so that the individual in question may be kicked out of the society.

In that post Hardwrath points out that “When you take advantage of game mechanics in order to gain/save financially at the expense of other players, it is in fact an exploit.” Whether Mindark agrees or disagrees with that opinion, the way that the hunting system is currently set up allows Kill Stealing to happen quite regularly.

It could be argued that asking members of a society to take actions to kick a member of their society out of the society is a form of harassment that causes grief to other participants, which is potentially a violation of the Terms of Use for Entropia Universe.

c. You cannot interfere with any other Participants ability to use and enjoy the Entropia Universe.

I do agree with Hardwrath that Kill Stealing is a bit of an annoyance in game, however, as things are currently set up there appears to be not much that can be done about it because the system is provided “as is”.

Since Kill Stealing is potentially a form of cheating or exploit, I have added a new category under the Cheating and Exploiting parent category and will use a future post to showcase various places online that this long-standing issue has been brought up by the Entropia Universe Community, much as I am doing with the ALT Avatar examples, so that the community, general population, and any of the developers reading this blog may be able to find the past examples quickly, realize that this is an ongoing issue, and take action to deal with this problem in the future…

Since Mindark has allowed Kill Stealing to exist in game for many, many years, the fact that nothing has been done to keep it from happening causes us to question if Mindark is upholding it’s promise that, “Both Planet Partners and the participants on the planets should always feel safe in their endeavors in Entropia Universe.”
