Ruining It For Everyone Else Since 2004

>Why does it have to come to this?

A couple days ago the 13 words you can’t say on the MOUL forum were posted in another entry of mine, and today I read the MOUL forum only to find they are talking about the userki!!!! And the moderators are ADDING to the topic with their posts!!! What is the forum I know and love coming to???

One person asked why can’t we have both OOC and IC (userki being on the OOC side of the argument), and I say it’s because as In Cavern specialists, it is our duty to tell people what they should and shouldn’t do in Uru. I may not own Uru, but I will go out of my way to tell you what you can and can’t do.

See, it was a bad idea for Cyan to encourage fans to make fan ages, because now it’ll make people want a userki and an adminki, and sooner or later the cavern will be overrun by those damn colored people, those rainbow colored people ruin the purity of our world just as the userki and adminki would if allowed.

Reading down one of those threads I saw this post.

It has all the standard default functions built into the back end of any 3D admin set of functions to move about freely and to change colors, lighting and set special conditions, so it was a repro of a standard debug tool that is widespread in all games for de bugging and is therefore not a mythical or unique invention..basically a master cheat code set up. As such it changes all the IC nature of the experience. It certainly can be fun for a limited area, and if there are individual servers as Cyan has mentioned that would be a place for it, but it threatens the vault integrity of the larger game. But again an excellent topic for discussion and debate as all of these threads are.

The response just irked me to no end.

Don’t listen to him. He apparently never used the userKI. The userKI caused no database issues. Such accusations are the hallmark of ignorance, nor was it a “debug tool.” It was a gift from the UU Administrators in December 2004 to keep people interested in the game.

If I want to believe that the userki causes low gas mileage, brain tumors, sour milk, and spray on hair straight out of a can, then dammit that is my right as an explorer to believe that!

Think about it! I know I didn’t.
