I declare today, April 4th, Maj day in name of MajMalphunktion! Let's show him support for all the things he does for us, regardless of the Nay-sayers! He lays it out on the line straight and to the point! We'd be a bunch of lost confused little puppies without him. You know it's true. Don't deny it.


TGWHTPTDWNRGG!!!

I was thinking about how this would work, and it seems awkward in my head and it is probably more so now, but hey! If this guy...

*Gag*...can have a million fan-girls, then surely MajMalphunktion deserves some! So today, show your crazy undeniable support for one of our favorite Turbine staff members!!! I'll GLADLY start off! I got my first companion today, and here he is. :D Dedicated to the MAN himself!

Hmmm... I always pictured him as a Kobold. O.o Maybe a Kolbold with a MUSTACHE! Epic Kolbold. :D (Afterall, we all know that the driving force behind Turbine is a large amount of overworked enslaved Kolbolds. *The Sad Truth Reveals itself*) Hmmmm.... PHOTO EDIT!

And, /props Culver for your effort to generate a support thread for the guy that we, the forums, just crucified (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?p=4392490#post4392490).

Perhaps he'll return to us. I truly hope that he will. But all of these folks that direct all of their DoooOOOooommm, hate, and negativity towards the Turbine staff through the forums really ruin our chances for open dialog. If you really hate the game that much to spew so much flith and poison at the Devs, just do us all a favor, and go ahead and /ragequit.

+1 OP this is what I posted in another topic ... And I will keep saying it. Yes I have had days and times that I may have been a PITA to Maj. But he is open and honest. Doesn't seem to hide behind words. Straight to the point. Sad so many Grown people need stuff all covered in fluff so their feelings don't get hurt. I have been accused several times on the forums for speaking my mind and not playing the Fluff game. I was raised not far from Boston must be a local thing say it plain and how it is.
Maj. Is in one of the hardest jobs out there..

Sleeps :D :) :D


Well I will say this. Devs and QA catch all kinds of junk. It is the most Thankless job going. Every one thinks it is just so simple. Wrong it takes many hours to make what seem like a min in the game. So yes I say good job when I think it is needed. I have been on both ends Dev and QA.. Devs get rode hard by QA when some thing gets Broken. Devs and QA get rode hard by people with the thinking I can do that. They must be Dumb..
Just my take and Rant..

I remember what it was like a couple of years ago and we rarely if ever got any info about anything. Maj and the rest of the Turbine peeps are far better than those days. Better real information than sugar-coated platitides or total silence.

Long may it continue.

Please keep working on new content rather than minor bugs too!!!

I did and named him MajMalphunktion as well. In fact I think we should start an drive to get everyone who supports Maj contribution to the community to get one and name him MajMalphunktion to show our support. Then all get together with the companions out and snap a pic.

I'd say Maj deserves a pat on the back and a thank you for his straight talk.
His post wasn't over the top, nor was it bad.
It was tellin us straight up like it is.

I'd rather have them tell me "NO, we can't do that now." than glad-handling us and feeding us fluffy rhetoric designed to keep the mobs pacified. The posts crucifying him were totally uncalled for, IMO.

Time to buy me a kobold critter I guess. Are they still going for 30billion plat on the AH?

I didn't see a single post 'crucifying' anyone. I love how its everything is easily divided into either intense hate or undying love in people's eyes. You don't like X = YOU HATER! You like X = FANBOI!

lol but there was. :p I remember a particular thread where the OP said turbine needed to fire him and just went all out crazy person. Harharhar. Course, that thread got deleted after soon after, but not before forum people flooded in an caused tons and tons of drama. :p
