I can tell you pride gets you nowhere. I have watched people gain cubits by the boat load by accepting things from people and them staying rich by not being genrous. There are many players who were quitting and I was offered items such as a ramm to where I said no they should keep it to just watch it be given to a person who then quits in a few months after. That is why I am better at accepting gifts now, I have watched it to many time O_O.
I find it hilarious that on the staff list it shows Nolana as rarely seen XD
anyway, I don't think the good ones are all gone. we still have a firm group of mods fully capable of handling cc. They do have priorities irl aswell. since most of them are adults, they don't have as much time to play as the younger generation
