Thanksgiving sounds a bit iffy, but christmas and easter are holidays celebrated all over the world by many people not just certain minorities. Having some islamic holiday is pushing it to far because only a handfull of people in the world celebrate it. I mean it would be nice to learn about another culture through the game but theres SO much tension between the masses that its just going to be a "ohh screw you and your religion". Its going to be REALLY ugly....

Another thing that should be kept in mind is that if this religious holiday is put out in game then other religions should be also taken into consideration, and also other types of holiday's.

Also to not make the quest a total fail if released then give good prizes, no 1/6 (total loss of time and just asking for insults to the religion), make it FULL exp balls, exp pots, gems,money and mets. Thats what people like in my own opinion. I mean this Gourment quest is total fail, you get **** prizes and you gotta run your butt around all the conquer world just to make one dish.

Hope you take some of these things into consideration, or at least read it once.

Other than that, I have no idea.



We all read the stories with great detail, trying to analyse each and every character involved and really get an in-depth understanding of them; why they feel what they feel and why they say what they say. Some of the stories truly touches our hearts. One that springs to mind is the Mother's day event when that mother accepted her son even though she knew he was a thief. It brought tears to my eyes!

If you can find a way to make the quest "neutral", then I'll go with it! Just don't name all the NPCs "Mohammed".

At least there is one may understand. hehehe
It is just a global game and it has some Celebrations, Events, Festivals, ..., so why not if some people celebrate the Eid all people can participate celebration and know something about others in the same time gain some prizes from the game?
Is that a bad idea or a good idea?
Just play in your spare time to know more and gain more.

Of course I agree with you not to name any of NPCs "Mohammed" or any other prophets to keep their honor names away. (it is just a game)

4. should non-christians refuse christmas presents given them?
5. do the pagan and cultural origins of religious holidays dilute their spiritual message?
6. can actions performed in a fantasy game be construed as endorsement of a belief system?

personally i think some people here are missing a very simple point. religions, whether you believe they are the truth or not, exist as practices throughout the world. whether or not you believe god or allah or buddha or whatever is "real", the religions surrounding them are very real, and the customs surrounding them are a fact of life, all over the world. to insist conquer only reflect the beliefs and customs of a single culture, is the worst kind of narrow-mindedness.
i can respect some of that, but at the same time doesn't it make sense to have co maintain a theme with the events, relative to Chinese culture and such. but as for the idea of narrow-mindedness, it can go both ways as some events are left out such as july 4th, it is a big thing for a large country, and may not be religious, but has moral grounds that represent the ideas of a nation (not as much anymore, but it used too. and i hope you get the general idea of that) where as the running of the bulls is not something cared for by the US as much as other country's , thats what it comes down to, people just dont practice all the cultural events as the rest of the world, and honestly many dont care to lol

(hope i didnt sound like to much of an ass lol)

Why would any of you be arguing against any event anyway, is what I want to know. Who cares what it's about?
And for the guy that said a small minority when referring to Muslims, Islam is the 2nd biggest religion in the world (based on number of followers), so I would hardly call it a small minority. But that isn't the point of putting a Ramadan event in CO anyway. Its just another excuse to make an event.

I say go for it, but please please please please make it have rewards that are actually worth doing..

As hemp said, i dont think anyone honestly cares less about what the event is celebrating, sure if its for Islamic people then they might get an erection over it, hooray for them. I for one couldnt care less what the quest is about as long as the rewards are worth even patching for, not 1/6 of an exp ball every hour or so.

Really it is funny what I read now from the racist like you.
Thanks, you make it clear now that there are many racist in our world. sorry "Your world". hehehe

I didn't say it was only mine. I said it's an english game, like this is an english forum. You overuse the word racist far to much.

This quest haven't been decided yet. We are still thinking about what kind of festival is proper to be held as an online event.

Thanks a lot for your feedback and suggestions. I think I have collected what I want.

And now, let this thread down.



====================

You are welcome to contact me if you have any good ideas/suggestions about CO.


I'm here waiting for your PM.
