A crazy one today! Remember, guys. If a troll comes on and starts badmouthing people, just stick them on ignore. When food is scarce, they will move on. It’s pointless arguing with them as their only goal is to get a reaction out of you. There have always been people calling me a scammer and whatnot, but as you can see Cryptic has not banned me or my account and has not blacklisted the giveaway site. Yes, it’s legit. I run it on WordPress, a popular blogging site that some of you are probably familiar with. I’ve been doing this over 6 months and through all that time, not once has Cryptic questioned what I do. In a sense, it’s their way of saying it’s all good!

There has been some strange happenings in the game lately when it comes to the community and certain factions that have cropped up. My name has been thrown around and I wanted to address that issue here.

Don’t forget about the 2 online drawings! Plasmonic leech here and Shuttles here! Go get to it and remember, you can enter daily for a better chance of winning.

In case you all haven’t noticed, I am trying a Q&A app called Spring.me where you can ask me any question you like. It may ask you to sign up so if you don’t want to, it’s not a huge deal. Just figured it was something neat to try out.

Here are your donors for the day!

Oh, some of you are so silly. Remember to READ the descriptions before asking for things! So far 5 people must remove their lips from their face and 7 people owe me 10m ec. That is what I put in the descriptions and I said if you agreed to it that you should whisper me…and people still whispered. Oh, boy!

I also want to take a moment to let you all know that since the Saint Olivia fleet has progressed in the last few months, we are in search of a couple of extra people to help out with projects! A candidate should be able to work well in a team as well as solo. There are times when a few of us group up and times when we go off on our own. Donation threshold is fairly low at just 75k in donations which, in most cases, can be earned in just a few days, after which the player will have full access to all fleet stores. We have plenty of provisions so need to worry about us running out. Just to give you a quick overview of where we are, We are current. Tier 3/3/2/2. We currently have the tier 3 spire upgrade running as well as the tier 4 shipyard project, both which need a lot of marks so plenty of room to get in that 75k store threshold. Players will also have FULL access to the first fleet bank tab and may add or remove any number of items they like. We have all bank tabs purchased, but this used to be a personal bank fleet so all those tabs are stocked up with other items. All of us are on equal footing within the fleet and you do not have to change your play style or the times you play. All we ask if that you project a positive imagine not only of yourself, but of the fleet an community! If you are interested, feel free to inbox me @Olivia211 or  you can also contact Angie at Djinny@justangie.

It was a slower giveaway, but still pretty solid. We had a bunch of new people.

Addressing the Community

I never thought I would have to write something like this, but it feels a bit like certain parts of the community are spiraling out of control. It has come to my attention that some people, a few that I don’t even know, have been using my good name in order to further their own agendas.

Let it be known that when it comes to the community, I support ALL players who want to come in, have a good time, and talk about Star Trek. I am not here to demean any particular person or group of people. I do not take sides. I DO NOT choose one particular community channel over any other. It would seem that many of you do not know this, but I visit several channels a day just to stay abreast of what is going on in the game. One of the wisest things my mother taught me was that often times you can learn a lot more just by looking around and listening, and not talking so much.

I have always stated that it was my goal to make the community of STO better and that has not changed. I understand that there are rifts between certain groups and factions in the game. I will not put down one faction to prop up another. I simply WILL NOT do that. Anyone that has said otherwise is mistaken.

I kindly ask that if you use me or this community event to further a negative agenda against any one person, fleet, or channel that you please stop.

I am all for having a bit of fun in game. I am sure you all have seen me ribbing people here and there, but it is all in good fun. The only time I get serious with some stuff is when people try to personally attack me for no good reason. I know many of you are familiar with some of the stalkers that have come after me time and again. Those people I have no respect for and therefore I could care less what they think.

Again, this community event has never and WILL NEVER be about factions or rifts or supporting one group over another. People (or fleets and channels) who have been named as sponsors are there because they supported the giveaway with donations and not because they are my friends. Some people that donate I have never even heard of before said donation so it is not just about who I know. It has always been about making this a better place to play. I want the game and the community to thrive. Obviously, I cannot control what others say or do to anyone else. I would hope that most of you would take the high road and not get into the petty bickering that seems to plague parts of the game. If you all choose to take the low brown approach, I would urge you to rethink the things you say. I have always treated others as I have wanted to be treated – the golden rule. I do not go around looking for trouble and I choose my battles carefully. I hope others see the way I handle things and perhaps change their line of thinking.

A very nice giveaway today. To those who have not been around for this event, yes. We are really legit. I do not make money on this. I do not spam email addresses. In fact I prefer that you all DO NOT give me your email address when you enter the online drawings. I do not solicit, I do not spread viruses, none of that. I’ve been at this for over 6 months and I think if I were scamming or spreading viruses, Cryptic would have already banned me. I am a Lifetime Account holder so I am not going to risk that or my reputation by trying to scam or spread viruses. Just not worth it.

Don’t forget about the 2 online drawings! Plasmonic leech here and Shuttles here! Go get to it and remember, you can enter daily for a better chance of winning.

Here are your donors for the day. I also want to mention Nova and Regulis for chipping in with a few items! Thank you! Feel free to ask me any question you like on Spring.me

A very nice giveaway today, but it looks like I still have to remind a few people about the rules. I know there are new players so I am not talking to them. I am talking to the people who have participating several times and still insist on purposely asking for every item. Keep in mind that if I see you doing this, I will simply not award anything to you. If I see you racing in constantly, again. No rewards. I spread the wealth. Simple as that!

2 online drawings! Here is how to enter! Plasmonic leech here and Shuttles here! Go get to it!

An interesting giveaway today. Reminder for those who are new, please read up on the rules. If I see you asking for every item I post, I will place you on ignore. Please only try to claim items you will use. While I cannot prevent people from selling items, I would hope people would use them first.

Today was a pretty decent giveaway. Reminder, the rules were recently updated so those should be looked over again in case it has been a while.

Right now we have two online only drawings going and yes, you can enter both! To enter the one for a chance to win the Plasmonic Leech, go here. For a chance to win one of two Lobi Store Shuttles, go here.

Here are your donors for the day! Be sure to thank them if you see them in game. I also want to mention the Renegades Fleet for offering up some very nice donations!

Win an Aeon Timeship or Ferengi Na’Far Shuttle (Live)

Why am I doing another giveaway while the Leech drawing is still going? Because this one will end the day before the next shuttle event starts in game!

For this drawing, like the Leech one, there will be two winners. The two prizes are the lobi store Ferengi Na’Far Shuttle and the lobi store Aeon Timeship Shuttle. I figured with the shuttle event coming up next month, now would be a great time to get a couple of people some decent shuttles to run the shuttle only runs which are actually quite fun! I remember being pleasantly surprised by how much fun I had doing those runs. One additional note on this drawing. Since the giveaway tool program automatically picks winners for me (in this case it will choose two, obviously), I will just flip a coin to see which person receives which shuttle. The two winners will be allowed to swap shuttles if they so choose.

Most of you are familiar with how this works. For those that are not, here are some quick rules and instructions on how to enter.

entryform

Notice how the form asks you for your Email address and name (this picture is a copy from the Suliban Cell drawing which I am using just as an example). While I do not require an email address since most of my correspondence is done in game, you can type in just about anything you want there. I was trying to get that removed, but it is hard coded into the form. As you can see from my example above, I just put in a random, fake email addy so please do the same unless you REALLY want to give out your email address. I won’t use it for anything, but I can’t say the same for Giveaway Tools – the developer I am using for the giveaway. I would recommend just using a fake one.
 
The more important part here is the Name section. In there, please put in your Star Trek Online @Handle. As you can see in the example, I typed in what would have been a character name followed by my @Handle. That part I will need so at the end of the drawing, I can contact the winner. You don’t even have to give a particular character name if you don’t want to – just the @Handle will be fine. Note: I had issues with a few people not giving me a proper @Handle in the Suliban drawing. Please make sure you give the proper @Handle.
 

Well, that’s all there really is to it. Do make note that the last day to enter is September 10th, 2014 (A Wednesday) at midnight Central Standard Time. If you do happen to have other questions, however, feel free to leave a comment and I will do my best to get back to you ASAP! Thanks again for all the support and I will see you in-game!
