There it is...
Full thread: Achievement: Proteron DNA sample COMPLETED!!!
wow ... somebodys gonna be rich !
No discovery? That's odd, maybe MA put it somewhere we can't see it yet?
Done a bit of work on the wiki page of the Proteron
Proteron - EntropiaPlanets Wiki - Information about Entropia Universe
please add more info if you have it
And are we sure this is the first DNA sample to be made, Star Mercury hinted he has one already.
Creating DNA does not generate discoveries, probably due to it produced in the refiner rather than being found in the traditional sense.
At some point MA might change this, and you'll probably know because all of a sudden lots of ingots we already have will be discovered :)
Grats to Shoti for his combining the new DNA
There seems to be a awful lot of drama and hate surrounding this DNA, anyone know the story? (Without any bias)
Was just interested as the thread in ef was getting nasty.
From what I hear Shoti had some debatable means for getting the DNA parts.
Paying people not to overbid him in the auction is one of them.
But I also heard people saying that he payed a generous amount for their part.
It seems Shoti wanted to be the first to have Proteron DNA and wanted to do anything to get it. Sure some people might think what he did was wrong, but unless it is against the EULA it is allowed.
i seen first hand how he deals and its not a pretty sight thats why i dont grats him and hope he looses big out on it.
btw im restraining myselfe by the help of some smilies
As John says it's not a pretty sight ;)
Anyway here's my account of my dealings with him (copy pasted from EF):
Hmm, ok, i reckon we'd have seen quite some from you, Letomie, Furor,...
maybe better, there may be good reasons to keep it secret.
But, weren't there discovery swirls 'n' trumpets for the new ingots?
I'm not sure about Zand back then, but i could swear i've seen discoveries for Iolite, Erionite & Pyrite ingots.
Discovery swirlies would be nice, the news goes out pretty quick anyway and you typically want people to know that there's a new mob in place or soon to be in place.
I can't remember seeing any discoveries for ingots.
I did see some for the raw ores though.
Interestingly enough, there are discovery swirlies for new skill chips, back when mindforce harmony chip was made, and the latest vehicle skills, for example.
I know, completely off topic, but hey. I'm not a mod here.
(Sorry, couldn't resist.)
As for Shoti and the DNA thing, I was unhappy about some of his "negotiating tactics" but whatever. However the big thing that bothered me most was he was buying/selling/buying all in the same week and admitted publicly that when he made the DNA he was going to sell it.
I would MUCH preferred if the DNA race were done only by those who were actually LA owners planning on using the DNA. Anyone else were simply middle-men fighting for something to sell for profit.
And yes, I'm quite aware that Merc and Skippie aren't LA owners and I'm unhappy about them being in the race as well.
And yes, I know Shoti had an LA, but when he admitted he was making it to sell it, that pissed me off.
(sorry for the double post)
There is no strict enforcement of "stay on topic" here...
as long as you don't abuse someone else thread for your personal agenda or derail it on purpose all you post here is fine, even "not so completely on topic"
You say "Sorry" way too often, ol' EF habit? ;)
Unlike some, my personality doesn't change based on where I am.
The apologies were for specific reasons:
First was to have fun w/ the whole moderator thing (some jokes are just too silly to pass up)
Second was to say I will try hard to not be the next (whatever his name was, that double-triple-multi-posted, and threatened flower bombs to MA.) can't remember name, but you get the idea.
*gg* yes, got that, just winding you up a bit (i know too little 'bout the whole 'crucify shoti' thing to make meaningful contributions to this thread anyway...) - you know, the good old EP vs. EF storeeeehhh, or maybe a remainder of good ol' ER cruelty... who knows... ;)
Consider yourself lucky.
Hehe, i do, i really do! :D
Funny tho, the ones complaining more than anyone else are exactly those that are well known for, at best, questionable business practices, too...
Must be hard when someone beats you at your favourite game....
However, i think some people trying to organize a "group boycott" of someones LA over this, well... that's something where MA should intervene IMO.
It's up to everyone where he want to hunt/mine, but deliberately trying to ruin someones business (and even advising an entire soc to do so) is foul play... but, judging from history, MA/FPC will look the other way once more im afraid...
hes dodgy wizz, thats all i should need to say.
to much of if i let myselfe go.
everyone is entiteled to his own opinion though and some who are deaf n blind will just find out the hard way 1 day.
