A number of statistical problems have been found with how races work, and I've made changes to fix this. Also, I completely re-did the "duck" race because it didn't accurately reflect reality.

For this reason, everybody gets to choose their race once again (if they wish).

Have fun.

So all the races we have now are statistically wrong? Or just some(like Duck)?

Not all. A few of them were wrong. I fixed them. So it's all good now.

Obviously, fixeing all this stuff has caused more delays to everything else.

Thanks for the heads up, Vextor.

Sorry there's so much to be fixed. I'm sure it's a burden on you...

Well, it comes with the job. But I'd like to take a shower.

Are the changes retroactive, so that say we chose Kobold initially and we want to keep it, would we then have to repick Kobold to have the changes affect us or would it not matter?

I would assume the latter to be the case but ya never know. :P

Can't you just look at your own profile to see the answer? You're still a lizard aren't you? And your stats haven't decreased...

EDIT: Hang on, I think I get what you're saying. The changes that Vex made to fix the statistical problems are indeed retroactive.

Since one does not know which races were affected and which ones were not one can then not assume if any changes even took place or if they were retroactive unless they themselves are affected and have been tracking it. In the condition that for the sake of argument you are attempting to ascertain information to make available to members of your nation then there are certain steps besides 'look and see' which need to be taken.

That being said, since races are a new item whether or not I am a lizard is irrelevant as that would only help those wishing to be lizards and not those wishing to be elves or beavers or chipmunks for all anyone knows!

How many people do you know constantly watch their stats for any kind of minute change due to a screw up or a stat based board change? I can assure you in any one nation the numbers can be counted on 1 hand.

Changes of this nature are always retroactive, and theres is a good reason for that. Stats are all derived from every members' posting style. Thus, the only way anything can be "not retroactive" is if a members' posting style changes. There's no possible way to change things the other way around, unless I can manually get into each of your brains and change your personalities.

And that, Vextor would be just a bit freaky. Though, you could raise an army to worship you, and that'd be fun I imagine. Or an Army of coders to work on suikox while you go take that shower. :P

I have yet to settle on a race, so it doesn't really affect me in the least.

Shit happens - in the early stages there'll always be teething problems. It's good that you are giving us the option to change again should we wish to.

Will this offer to change again be open indefinitely?
