You know that's not happening. They don't have time or patience to moderate that. Plus their original intention long ago was to offer avatars to those who "earned" it. You know how that would go; favoritism, ext.
So nope. No custom avatars, no custom titles, no signatures, no NUA's. Nope. Nope. Nope.
Honestly it's better this way and you know it because we all know how it would go down.
As for this maintenance...sanitization.
I'm downloading the game rn and I was looking around the forums, everyone seems friendly so I wanted to say hello. How's everyone's days going? ^_^
Welcome to the show; what server, gender, race, and talent did you pick?
Hi! Welcome to Mabinogi~ My day would be perfect if it wasn't so hot for over a week now... x.x
Aren't you in UK? Is "hot" when it's not raining or overcast?
I think what Greta means here is that the fact Nao's population was communicated as being similar to Alexina (the only reason they had stated Alexina wouldn't be merged), and then the population subsequently requiring extra channels to handle all the strain of several channels being decently filled in comparison to Alexina being essentially empty, spare channel 1, is kind of a smack in the face. But I could be wrong so they're free to correct me if need be.
Also this last part annoys me... "if Alexina gets more populated"... you and I both know this isn't going to happen if at the height of the Master Plan there wasn't even a boost in player attendance on Alexina. Channel 1 hasn't been full in ages. Meanwhile Nao is over here with a decent portion of her channels nearly full or busy.
