Kysentra was really fond of his "Sponsor" title, but it was beginning to smell after 6-7 years. It even shows up as SponsorOLD in /pstats.

Therefore, he has recently purchased a custom prefix and would like to request all you nice SFTians (staff included) to help him find a fresher, nicer smelling title.

You may leave your suggestions in replies to this thread and you may leave as many as you like. However, expect Kysentra to be annoyed by large spammy masses of text and be less inclined to pick from such lists.

You may also vociferously debate the merits of any replies within this thread. He WILL read every single reply even if it stretches into the thousands, although he very much hopes that this will not come to pass.

This is not a carte blanche to be unnecessarily offensive with your posts as the usual forum rules still apply. Even if you are joking, remember: The onus is on the comedian to choose the right joke for the right audience. Comedy is HARD.

The contest ends 12am, 11th April 2020. You will know you have won when Kysentra logs in with your new swanky title idea.

The prize is 500,000 EmpBucks. Good luck.

P.S. He's currently partial to titles that have something to do with SFT's pyrofishing plugin, but that may change over the course of the week.

Moments like this make me wish we know for sure there is a good afterlife for those who brought cheer to other lives. Rest in peace you magnificent human being garywb, or do whatever you damn well please. You deserve it. This world is a poorer place without you.

Damn Green 8 years is pretty impressive. (and omg GotAnError, another old name).

I recently checked the event list and saw Tiebreaker is still around...that steal or share thing has your name on it. Let it be known that I am shamelessly claiming credit for originally bringing that idea to SFT, though you probably did a better job than my crappy old red and blue pile of redstone crap.

Love ya you lovely welcoming person you.

ughh.. Welcome back!

(yes i'm not dead)
Still not sure if you're camster or his brother

The biggest mystery no one shall ever know!!!!

(Expect me and the fact my brother ya never played this game and if he even came never this server or anywhere I was I'd kick his ass)

That's the thing about brothers...only you're allowed to kick their asses, anyone else who kicks your brother's ass is asking for an ass-kicking themselves.

The way I can see this working, i.e. some place to invest/speculate your empbucks and see it go up/down without risk of tanking the economy, is probably centralized server-controlled "companies" based on emporium transactions.

It is essentially a re-skinned, more involved form of lottery tickets affected by player actions at the emporium.

1) The server sets up a number of "companies", each dealing in a range of goods commonly bought/sold at the emp and no 2 companies deal in the same goods.

2) "Shares" in these companies are limited and bid on by players. Minimum bidding price is the price at which the server will buyback the shares. The server can control the total proportion being offered at any time. e.g. A company releases 20% of its shares a week and will be 100% in the hands of players in 5 weeks.

3) Share price fluctuations are relative to emporium transaction volume.

e.g. Assume company A deals in diamonds and company B deals in emeralds. The difference in this week's emporium diamond buy/sell volume compared to last week is +40, while for emerald it is +50, company A stock should go down while company B stock should go up. Both volumes went up, but since company B's went up more, its shares becomes more valuable.

4) Shares are always bought and sold with the server, not directly between players.

5) New companies may form and old companies may collapse also based on emporium transaction volume.

Got some shares in a wheat company? Buy/sell more wheat at the emporium and hope it outpaces the other companies for that week, then sell the shares back to the server for a profit.

Since everything is controlled server side, there are opportunities for tweaking the numbers to make it more/less moneysink-ish.

Hi, I'd like /kit legend permissions, but to keep my SponsorOLD rank...

I know you need a 2 year old forum account. I am not sure where my old 2013 forum account went, but was advised by Sasha to post a request anyway and say that it got deleted.

Was creeks the one who ran SFT radio? Whoever that was introduced me to Steel Panther.

Also...hi everyone! Seeing old names on this server is probably the only good thing about the ongoing pandemic making everyone stay home.
