• Demonreach Village

    We started Demonreach about a month ago, and we’ve been quite busy.  I finally decided to take a moment and take some pictures of our little community we have going.

    Most of us settled down near a village near the spawn point, and we aptly named it Demonreach Village.  Perry and I are right in the village, with Lee and Chris right nearby.  Nick settled down near the spawn point, and Chas and Mike ventured even further.


  • The Last Straw -OR- How Seth Went Insane: 2019 Edition

    So, it has come to this.

    Today, while doing regular updates on TRC, the Facebook account I’m currently using to keep my pages updated was temporarily shut off, and I had to answer a slew of questions to prove I was me. I managed to get back in fine after a few minutes.

    A little bit later, the TRC Facebook Page was unpublished. It says due to recent activity, we’ve been found to violate some shit.  Which is fucking ridiculous, as the only activity in the last WEEK was me sharing posts from other Facebook Pages.  I appealed the decision, but who knows how long that will take.  So for the time being, TRC is essentially crippled as most of our viewers are on Facebook.

    I then ran into an issue while updating some other websites.  Found that all of my WordPress sites that auto-post to Facebook have stopped working. I worked for an hour trying to reconnect them, and it just won’t fucking work. Keeps giving me a generic error, with no explanation what-so-ever.  So now my websites, and the Stonington Public Library are directly affected by this.

    I’ve had it.  I’m exhausted.  I don’t even know what to DO about any of this anymore.  Facebook won’t give me the time of day.

    If anyone has any ideas, suggestions, or plans of revenge, I’m totally listening…..


  • Facebook: 4 | Seth: 0

    It happened again.  On Monday, my Facebook account was disabled.  This time, I was an hour and 20 minutes into streaming Minecraft!  I was just shut down out of nowhere.  It messed my stream up, as it kept running for a day before I figured out how to stop it.

    To recap, here’s the short story of whats happened, thus far…

    Nov 27
    My account was mysteriously disabled. The account had been active for well over 10 years, and I had no idea why. I submitted a ticket to have it looked into, and the only response I got was that I had been found ineligible for Facebook, and that due to their policies they couldn’t even tell me WHY.  Also, it was a final decision.  I made a new account under my name, as I was kind of responsible for managing 2 pages and an ad campaign for work.

    Feb 2
    The day after I was laid off from Beal College, my account was disabled again, same story.  I still have a theory this one was triggered by Beal ripping my admin access off of pages, and not removing me from the business manager account.  I submitted another ticket, and decided to wait for a response.

    Mar 20
    After never getting a response, I made a new account with  my name.  I woke up the next morning, not 24 hours later, and the account was already disabled.  This infuriated me. I hadn’t even posted anything, or connected to more than 5 friends.  I waited a few weeks and decided to make a new account using my middle name, Dolan, instead of Barden.  A few days after creation, I was temporarily disabled and had to send them ID to prove I was me.  I did, and a few days later my account was back on.  Everything seemed to be fine finally!

    May 13
    We started our new survival world on Minecraft on May 13, and we were all streaming to Facebook.  About an hour and 20 minutes into my stream, my window suddenly reloaded, stream cut off, and I was disabled yet again.

    I have no idea why any of this is happening to me. I’ve read through their terms four separate times, and I have done NOTHING to violate them in any way.  There is no way to talk to a person, and every time I submit another ticket I get the same “Thanks, but you should go pound sand” response.

    I honestly think I’m done trying at this point…  Which means everyone is going to have to text or call me for communication 🙁

    SIGH.


  • What to do next in Alpha?

    With the completion of Morband, I’m not sure what to work on next in Alpha.

    I have three locations I’ve been planning out for some time now, all with different levels of plans and ideas. I figured I’d explain them bit here, and hopefully get some feedback on what to work on next 🙂

    TALMAR: City of Dwarves
    A large, underground city built into a massive cavern. It will be home to a kingdom of dwarves. So far, I just have the cavern dug out.

    EVERMORE: City of the High Elves
    A city far to the north, home of the High Elves.  I have an epic location picked out, and plan on building some tall spire-y buildings.

    TANGLEWEALD: City of Wood Elves
    This city has been planned for the longest time.  It is located in the center of the Great Jungle, and I’ve had vague plans to build a city here for quite some years now.  Problem is, building in the jungle sucks.  I feel like I should work on this one first, but it would be the most work. I need to clear a ton of jungle before I can really start planning anything. I just have a location picked haha.
