This looks like tacit admission of poor db code to me. A real db admin would have put together a robust system by now that could handle even drunk and angry admins, no matter how faced they get.

Dude, I been a mod since. . . well, since long before you. . . You don't have that authority, and I find the idea that you would even THINK you did laughable. LAUGHABLE!

Improved Vacation [General]
Prerequisite: a job with benefits
Your powers of vacationing are superior to those of normal people.
Benefit: When you take a vacation you experience double the amount of fun that a normal vacation would grant.
Normal: When on vacation you experience a level of fun directly related to the amount of time, cash and alcohol expended/consumed while on vacation.
Special: If you are an ENWorld moderator you can (apparently) impose this feat on any non-moderator ENWorld users.

And the Enemies of the Fun Were Smited.The game is also so simple that nobody has any choices. ... I'm playing the wizard, and I literally go from being "HOLY **** this is overpowered" to "Wow I'm useless" in three spells, flat. (And no, it's not okay for ANY of this to happen...)
Been there. It's ugly. It's also hard, and I'm lazy. For this reason I have hired a few guys up in Seattle to do this for me and to have the house rules document delivered to my door in a nice, neat package. They don't respond to my emails often, but I expect to receive "the big fix" some time in June or so.Sashi said:every time someone wants to do something outside of the rules he resolves it a different way (because there's no consistent rule written for it) OR he comes up with a resolution system (which is a bad one, because he's not a good game designer), and then writes it in the word document of house rules (which expands every session. Currently we're at 100+ house rules,

FWIW, I still play Basic D&D. Granted, the red-box rules are still a more recent edition than OD&D, but the heart and soul of the game is still very much intact if you ask me. I also play 3.5E, and will continue to do so for at least a couple more years. A new edition being released does not diminish the years of fun and enjoyment I have experienced under older rules systems.
