1  General Category / Announcements / Announcement : Testers needed for the new core on: April 11, 2018, 06:31:27 pm
Hello VanillaGaming community! As you've probably heard, the new core is scheduled to be released before summer.

We are in a fixing spurt in the moment and need as many testers as possible to speed up the process.

Post your tester applications now! Pretty much guaranteed acceptance.


Yours,

Sinse

Core transition will come. Most likely before summer we will have period of intense work to get it done. Sooner or later, most likely sooner. When that period starts things will go foward fast, as before. As before when people have been posting similar topics every spring, History has well proven vgs not going anywhere.

Concerning people (developers) offering to do some programming for vG, we have contacted and reviewed every candinate that has done so. Sadly everytime it has been either that the person has not had any understanding of the core framework, which makes it impossible for him to do any work without being taught, thus we've sent those guys to check out the mangos documentation which is perfect for learning, and they.ve never came back. Then there are couple of cases where we even tried to hire people from other sources, either ending up with the same result or that the guy didn't live up to normal working ethiques (for example, constructive criticism from other developers(from Zeard to another c++ programmer) and ragequitted themselves.

If a programmer who knows what his doing with the wow emulation architecture based on mangos stumbles upon our way, we will hire him, that is a fact. Ive spent my time posting ads everywhere and reviewing candinates, and currently im having a break from it because for years it yielded no results. If anyone knows someone, refer them to us. Thank you.

Hello, just a short statement from vG staff regarding the recent announcement.

No matter how authentic blizzards wow classic will be, aslong as there is atleast a person playing on vG we will never shut down.

Vanillagaming will continue to serve the original 1.12.1 client and vanilla experience with dedication to utmost alikeness without modernization.
5  Community / General Chat / Re: Reason for all bans on: September 14, 2017, 02:29:27 pm
Banned due to GM abuse with commands to obtain gold, complete quests , items, increase reputation, teleport players, as seen in GM command logs. Using GM position for personal or benefit of others is unauthorized and strictly forbidden and leads to permanent removal from community.

From now on the level of GM logs monitoring will be highly increased to prevent and secure early discovery and interruption of such behaviour.

End of discussion further threads will be removed.
6  Support / Feedback / Re: Tester App Rejection Appeal on: May 31, 2017, 12:30:06 pm
Hello, the reason behind tester application rejection or acceptance has never been specified on forums and never will be, exactly for the reason of avoiding defamation or elevation in the eyes of the community which might cause useless arguments / flaming on forums. Putting emphasis on the word "you" doesn't have any intention to do so and in my eyes it does not,  simply states your application is rejected. Bringing up details of rejection in public could be defaming , not underlining "you". If you are interested to hear constructive feedback on why your application was rejected, PM an admin.

Person in question is perma banned for hacking and abuses. This was stated in the first appeals (years ago) including the quote where he admits to these offenses and in the new appeal , which has been deleted by the person, after which he posted instantly a new appeal, which was removed by me. Next time the person deletes old appeals and posts new ones forum ban will be issued.
8  General Category / Announcements / Announcement : Core transition in progress on: May 12, 2017, 09:31:44 pm
Hello fellow vanillagamers, we are excited to share some interesting news with you.


We have been working on transition to a new core and database which will bring improvements to numerous areas / features of the game. Battlegrounds, quests, class abilities/talents low-level and lower progression instances will be radically improved incorporated with the best bits of what vG has to offer at the moment.

We cannot provide an ETA yet as theres still work to be done regarding porting and more importantantly, thorough testing, to ensure that the transition will be as smooth as our community deserves. Nonetheless, the ETA will be announced soon.


Yours, vG staff.

15  Support / Feedback / Re: A flaw in the system. on: March 03, 2017, 02:40:17 pm
So aside from the drama that my appeal caused, a major flaw has emerged from the waters.

Now you may be wondering, "What could this goon be on about now?"

Well let me explain...

If you go to my ban appeal, you can see that I was told 2 months is far too short to appeal. Fast forward to my most recent post, the last comment before the thread is locked, you can see Sins reply with

"6 months is not a written rule with perma bans. Perma ban means permanent and thats why it is the final punishment. Appeal passing shouldnt be taken for granted. 2 months is not enough in any case for any permanent ban appeal to pass for bug abuse and if one has then it has without my knowledge of it.

The players who are banned still for chest of spoils abuse are the ones with proven massive bug abuse of it. Gold of the rest will be removed and if it was found to be affected from the log check since unbanning, they will receive bans."

But for some reason, this is not entirely true.

Case #1: Player, Marmite.
The first issue with this is I was sent a PM into MY inbox from Vexallus stating that the player "Marmite" will not be getting unbanned from the Chest of Spoils bug.

Proof



Now this is also a false statement, because multiple sources have shown that this player has since been unbanned, without an appeal, and is actively playing on VG once again. This is incredibly unfair to everyone else that was permanently banned for this bug, and if you go to the forum section "VanillaGaming Staff Code of Conduct", you can see Cosmos (Who is no longer a GM, but the post remains true regardless) stating that a gm must always "--Act with integrity, honesty, and professionalism" Source http://vanillagaming.org/forum/index.php?topic=17431.0

Now this seems incredibly dishonest to have certain players allowed back to the server for an unkown reason.

Case #2 Hammza litterally BUYING his Thunderfury.
Now the proof here is much more lacking, but I'm sure there were players that joined these pugs that can back me up.

Oh? You don't know what I'm talking about?

Simple explanation, every week, Hammza would host a Molten Core pug raid. Nothing out of the ordinary here. The only issue is, he would pay out 10,000 gold to every player at the end of the raid. Now again, I have no stone cold proof of this, but the community on the horde side knows of this. This player is still running around with his legendary item to this day, and if we once again go back to the reply from Sins, we can see him say "The players who are banned still for chest of spoils abuse are the ones with proven massive bug abuse of it". Now I don't know about you, but being able to put out nearly 400,000 gold every week seems to be pretty massive bug abuse to me. There is no amount of farming that can earn you that much gold legitimately.

This is all I have for now. I felt this post necessary to bring attention to the shady acts that have been going around, I dont expect this post to last long, but it should last long enough to make a statement.

Thank You.

~PS~
#FreeSorono


How many replies must i give saying the same thing. Those unbanned from the abuse we couldnt prove massively abused the chest, or it was not their 3rd offense. The gold as said in the announcement will be removed. About hammza, you said it yourself, the proof is not here. We rely only on concrete evidence on punishments and the system works straightfoward. End of the case further topics will be removed.
