  1. I need your character name, not the race you are. Or did you actually name yourself Pukuripo?
  2. One way to get them is to exchange mini medals for them from the medal king.
  3. Invite sent for Xiados. Leibach072 you need to provide both your character name and ID. Why did you post the picture upsidedown?
  4. We have reached the maximum level for our team in DQX! A big thanks to everyone that helped do the team quests, and especially Rin who truly dedicated herself to completing these and is a very big factor in having gotten us to this point! To celebrate the milestone, we will be having a celebration at Remina's town, appropriately called もじゃ Town. We'll be temporarily switching the team house to his town this weekend for the occasion. It's a weekend affair, but the main celebration is going to be held at 5PM Pacific time this Saturday, August 29th 2020. Bring as many fireworks as you can! We'll be setting them off and lighting up the sky! Also bring your swim suites, we'll be having our party at the beach and I just might host some swim races! I may have some minor prizes in the form of some colored orbs to give out, nothing major though so don't feel devastated if you can't make it. Also bring your moves, we may have an impromptu dance off occur!
  5. Will need both your character name and character ID to send an invite.
  6. We are still having a lot of problems with inappropriate behavior in team chat. I don't know if you guys have noticed, but a number of people have left the team over it. I don't want to start taking draconian action, but we as a team have got to start treating each other with respect. We are getting far too many people not showing respect to others in chat, or saying inappropriate or hurtful comments. I really have not wanted to take the step of setting up tools to monitor and log the chat, but I'm on the verge of having to take that step. Think about what you are saying in chat. It should be obvious already that we don't story spoilers in the chat. That said, occasionally a spoiler might slip through by accident. If someone is telling you that what you are saying is a spoiler, it's best to take that conversation to private pink chat. If you disagree that it's a spoiler, it's probably not a good idea to start a fight about it in team chat. Ask me if you are unsure. But really, the safest option is just to take your current conversation to private friend chat (the pink window) with the person involved and continue it there. If you feel someone is not being respectful or is showing disrespect, please notify me of it. I review things and will act on it if I feel action is needed. These issues in team chat are costing us members, and damaging our reputation within the community as well. We are no longer seen as the friendly welcoming and helpful community that we have been for the last 7 years or so. That is a really unfortunate situation for us to be in. We were always seen as the go-to DQX community and the best source for new players to go to. We've lost that reputation. We must get this situation under control immediately. It's been a source of frustration for many members of the team, both past and unfortunately now former members of the team that left over these issues.
  7. I've sent you a PM. You are free to discuss it with me there.
  8. This is not a message I was looking forward to writing, but it's one that is required at this point. There's been problems with the Team Chat, and till now they were relatively minor. But it's been a growing issue, enough that I've received numerous complaints about it. Initially I was giving verbal reminders to people, but the issues have only grown and frankly the chat is becoming uncomfortably toxic. It was one thing when we had people accidentally dropping story spoilers, but now I'm seeing racist comments, insulting other team members, and outright harassment. This needs to stop immediately. Nobody likes an overbearing moderator, I am not someone that wants to throw her weight around. But my patience with these issues has worn thin and if I have to get heavy handed, then I will. I can, will, and have, started issuing suspensions from the team for these issues. As standard practice I will usually give a warning before I issue a suspension, but if the behavior is blatant enough, at my discretion I can skip the warning and go straight to a suspension. We've had pretty lax rules to this point, I figured a lot of it was common sense stuff. But I have always said that you needed to treat people with respect on the team: -Be respectful of other Team Members: The goal of this team is to be a welcoming place for other players. While this team is certainly not limited to English players, it is the main entry point for pretty much the whole English community on this game. As such, it is very important that we be respectful and tolerant, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because we are guests on a foreign game that mandates a certain level of respect and politeness from it's customers. Us miss-behaving and not following this most basic of rules can put everyone at risk. -No racist, inappropriate, derogatory, or harassing messages in Team Chat: This is pretty much tied into being respectful. We've had cases of racist remarks being used, and harassment or "trolling" of other players. I'll just lay this out. I don't like bullies, and I have little tolerance for them. Start bullying other team members, you won't last long. If you have a personal issue with someone on the team, do your best to solve it outside of team chat. If you need a mediator, you can reach out to me and I can work with both of you to try and settle the issue. But don't start going after someone in team chat. I will say I've seen racist comments in the chat before. I will not tolerate this. Anyone of any skin color and any heritage is allowed in the team as long as they are able to treat others with respect. If certain types of people or heritages are an issue for you, than I'm going to be blunt. This isn't the team for you and you should depart. I won't budge on this one. On a side note, I sometimes see this term used and people don't realize it's history. But being this is a Japanese game I feel it's important to make people aware of it. Please do not shorten Japanese to "Jap". While not everyone is offended by it, it does have a history of being used as a racial slur and to this day there are some people that are really bothered by it. Please use "JP" instead as the abbreviation. This is a non-offensive term to everyone. -Suspensions Suspensions are issued at my discretion. When you are suspended, you are removed from the team. This does not have to be permanent. Contact me with your character name and ID and I can inform you how long the suspension is for and you can be re-added when the suspension period is served. I may add to this later if I think of more. I really do not want to become that moderator that has to start cracking the whip. Nobody wants to be here under tight supervision and having their every move watched. I do not want to have to start running monitoring services on the team chat so please take this message to heart and help me nip this in the bud before it becomes worse. Nobody likes an oppressive moderator, but I do have to start tightening my fist on these growing issues. The toxicity level of the chat is growing at an alarming rate and I can't allow it.
