Has nothing really happened worth putting on the history page in 2 years? 2 years including a covid spike of players?
If I was a producer and nothing happened in my active game for 2 years worth putting up, I'd resign so someone with actual enthusiasm and passion can have the encouragement to do something.
The last entry on the history page happened 26 in-game years ago. That's 1118 real-life days, or just over three years. It has been over three years since anything was written on the history page. And pretty much all entries from the last fucking decade are about gith. A few others are about tepid politics and bullshit. It has been many years since any player initiative or player-driven story made it onto the game's history page.
It's not that a bunch of stuff has happened and they simply forgot to write it down, either. Nothing fucking happens in this game. It's so boring that it's legitimately amazing. I've never seen anything like it. It's so tedious and bereft of meaningful direction that it's kind of impressive. I didn't think the game could end up like this while still having a huge amount of staff and a sizeable playerbase by RPI standards. Like... people must genuinely be trying very hard to avoid doing anything. I didn't think you could have this many storytellers and players without something automatically happening on a regular basis. It's a case study in stagnation.
How the hell can that even happen? How does a game go downhill so consistently over the course of years without anyone going "hey, let's try to fix this." It's like a car crash in slow motion where the driver has all the time in the world to brake and avoid it but simply chooses not to.

grumble: But myself, I don't take issue with there being slaves in the game, references to slaves, or that certain races are preferred as slaves in the game. Look at the Sun Runners, it's considered an honor to be one of their slaves.

grumble: It's all part of the history of the game. Armageddon should come with a trigger warning, if it doesn't already.

grumble: Necker, however much I miss saying "Sup my necker?", was a bit much. I can do without it because I see the reason why it's a bad idea. I'm not sure too many were offended but one is enough.
