And yes, purplenv is a MALE.

Thank you. I've updated the OP to reflect the general consensus that Purplenv is, in fact, male.

I have found that the discussions on these boards provide far more insight than the guides and posts that spark them. So, I am adding a link to the original thread to provide a reference to the discussion following the OP.

It has been pointed out that it is disrespectful to repost this information here when the author himself clearly doesn't want it here. For the author to rob this information from the very community which helped create it is even more disrespectful.

On another note, it seems that some have noticed a shift in the way lunar and solar elements are affecting crafting results. I am also unaware of any studies that have attempted to determine elemental affinities of the solar calendar. I was wondering if this shift may actually be caused by the interaction of the solar and lunar calendars in this game, and would therefore be predictable.

I believe this is important because I have noticed that elemental theories seem have influences beyond crafting. Extending to gardening, HELM activities, mob strength and weakness, skill chain and magic burst, magic and physical resistances, strength and efficacy of meds, etc.

Specifically, can anyone confirm exactly how many days there are in a Vana 'diel year? How many months? Exactly, how many days per month are there? Is there a leap year? If so, when or how often?

This is the information that is needed to even begin a comprehensive study of the in game solar cycles.

Actually, the original post is copywrited.

3) "If it's posted to Usenet it's in the public domain."
False. Nothing modern and creative is in the public domain anymore unless the owner explicitly puts it in the public domain(*). Explicitly, as in you have a note from the author/owner saying, "I grant this to the public domain." Those exact words or words very much like them.

This is taken from http://www.templetons.com/brad/copymyths.html which gives 10 myths about copywrite laws.

http://www.antionline.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=231259 is a post I made on another forum when we started dealing with a lot of cut and paste threads dealing with computer security related issues. Title 17 of the United States Code has all the copywrite info if you really want to read a LOT of boring government written documentation.

Your missing all my pretty colors...



Misc. player>> /sh Oh **** look, it's Purplenv.

1. I am male in gender.

2. I don't frequent this forum at the level I once did.

3. I have removed my original post to make a point...

4. I did not, at the time of deletion, repost to a new public location, I fealt that the number of sources already existing for my theory was adequit.

5. Do I really care if you feel the need to repost my theory? Nope. I removed the original. I made my stand. I do not wish to hurt the crafting community, so I agree the information should remain available. If you think that people can't find it elsewhere, then I guess you needed to post it here.

I would like to note that Purplenv claims to have developed this theory himself, which does not give credit to other crafters who had contributed to crafting theory prior to his post. He also fails to acknowledge the hundreds of crafters who contributed to things as simple as recipe lists and skill cap info, (which used to be incomplete and hard to come by because the guild NPCs didn't always give you a list of recipes), which he, no doubt, also took advantage of to formulate his theory.

The theory to maximize skill ups as posted, is mine. It came from my head, it was actually written by myself while sitting at my desk, at work, on a particularly slow day. I am infact typing from that same desk now.

The source was only my memory, of specific crafting results. There were no charts, no master lists, no parsing software to compile a spreadsheet from 10k synthesis.
This theory was put on paper, to be tested by all, and intially I was not even sure it would be proven effective. In the end it was.

Recipe lists, and skill up guides of the time were very much a failure. Level ranges were 5-10 levels, with no guidance as to which day/moon/direction criteria were to be used over the full level range.

The Thoery was unique, as it was not recipe specific. It was to cover ALL recipes, for ALL of Vandiel.

Have a nice day.

Morgrist Said:

Pitlourde has decided to usurp that right by copying a post and reposting it on the forum here. Word for word. If that isn't disrespectful and wrong, what is?

Banging your best friends girlfriend is disrespectful and wrong, this is not.

Ctrl + C, then Ctrl + V is hardly disrespectful and wrong.

Pitlourde; Thank you for reposting this. I was looking for it, then noticed your rpely in his thread. I'm surprised at all the flac you;ve recieved. Thank you for not backing down due to it.

I would have reposted it when I found it as well :)

Sure, we should respect his choice to stand against Alla's sellout which occured 6 months before. However, we have a choice to preserve the community and its resources as well. I'm glad for the choice you chose.

Plagiarism or not?

Saving of information is important and I don’t think Pitlourde plagiarized as they quoted the original author and gave credit to them even if they did not respect Purplenv's wish. I agree that this information can be found throughout the web and it is unfortunate that it was not readily available to members of Alla. Purplenv made their point clear and I will respect that 110%. (Though I have personal opinions about the buy-out matter and if you note I’m not registered and will remain that way those threads are in other areas of this forum).

For those interested CosmicEnigma has created a compass. It will be undergoing a revision or two in the near future. It was actually Purplenv’s post and other information that helped in its creation. You can find it here or go to www.cosmicenigma.net and click on Crafting in the menu on the left.

Why are you still talking about plagiarism? Purplenv has posted and said he didnt care... so no one is going to sue... plagiarism or not it does not matter anymore. Now that is taken care of can we please return this to a crafting thread? Thank you and have a nic day.
