    Tell me the name of your in-game toon (is it Minaliul?), and I'll send you 200g to help with prizes. I'm not really into Middle-Earth trivia, but I am into help with stuff

    I guess you do understand that 8 PM on a Sunday night in the US EST corresponds to 02:00 AM in Europe CET time so good job excluding all working Europeans, and possibly most students, teenagers and just about everyone who has something to do Monday mornings.

    I guess you do understand that Ark is a US server (which might explain using a convenient US time), and that no matter what day/time is chosen, someone somewhere will be 'inconvenienced.' These are nice people, doing something nice on the server. SMH

    I'm sure they didn't mean to exclude anyone..... they're just trying to do something fun.

    And I would not mind taking part. Sounds like fun.

    As for Arkenstone being a US server I registered long before that info was even visible in the launcher.

    8pm Sunday server time translates to Monday noon on the East Coast of Australia. While I do understand, as others have said, that Arkenstone is indeed a US sever, it also has a sizable Oceanic population. Could I request that occasionally, (perhaps once a month), you might consider running it on a Saturday night, so us working Aussies and Kiwis can have a crack at it. Sounds like a lot of fun and I'd love to give it a go once in a while

    Someone creates some content out of own free will and takes care of the prizes mostly out of her own pocket I believe and people are complaining about it. Do you complain when others raid or group in any matter and you're not around? Should we stop talking and wait for you just so you don't miss anything? Let's stop the server because you're sleeping and wait for 100% of the server population to be online.

    Here's an idea... Copy this idea, change it a bit and make it in your timezone. I didn't notice that this is protected by copyright. But it's not as fun to give for some people, some would rather get free stuff and that from a person already handing out dyes in world chat whenever she is online.

    On the one hand I can't understand the nerve of some people requesting something be tailored to them like it's not something people do in their own free time they intended for the game. On the other... It can be seen also as a compliment and a success as people would like to be a part of it.

    I sincerely hope you weren't including me in that statement. While I share your disappointment with a couple of the earlier posters who were clearly showing annoyance that their time-zones were, (in their eyes at least), being discriminated against. My post was not intended to show anything like this, it was merely a genuine enquiry as to whether the OP would consider holding the occasional event at a different time, no pressure and I certainly understand if she was unable or unwilling to do so. As you correctly pointed out she is kindly donating her own time and in game goods to make this contest something special for the players on Arkenstone.

    To Minaliul, if my post did come across as anything other than a polite request and, in fact as Gandalphor suggests, a compliment, then I sincerely apologise. It's people like yourself who make Arkenstone such a great online home.

    I've been asked by quite a few people to consider doing different times/days to include people from other time zones, and was already working out a plan to make it happen.

    I'm sorry if anyone felt like I was leaving them out on purpose, that was not my intention.

    Someone above suggested that another person create more trivias in order to accomodate other time zones. I would be happy to give pointers/suggestions to anyone who wants to start their own trivia nights.


    At this time the next "Mina's Trivia Night" is still scheduled for this coming Sunday evening @ 8 pm server time. I will make sure that I let everyone know if/when I am able to make it happen at different times.


    As always, Love to you all!!!!

    There is no need to apologize. I for one am happy you are doing a community building event. No matter what time it is done someone will be left out. instead of complaining those players could either
    1. Get in contact with you and get the trivia for them to do their own event
    2. Get their own trivia and plan their own event


    Problem is people do not want to be bothered putting in the work to do something on their own. So Thank you Mina for doing something nice. I hope those players who are missing out will take the incentive to do their own events during peak times from their time zones.
    Good Luck SSG.... May good fortune find you and bring this game to the place it deserves to be

    Other forum members: You want it... do the content
    Me: Yeah I see your point
    Other forum members: Please add trait points to the store and more valor options so we dont have to run content
    Me: O.o ... Seriously?

    Due to popular demand

    In order to accomodate more time zones, trivia nights will now rotate.

    One week will be Sunday at 8 pm server time, the next week will be Saturday at 2 pm server time, then back to Sunday at 8 pm server time, then back to Saturday at 2 pm server time, etc etc

    We did not mean to leave anyone out!! We were just going with a time that worked around our rl schedules.

    Hope that this allows more people to join in!!!
