REQUESTING HELP- Please Read


Recommended Posts

Good Morning Crowfall Community Members!

 

For those who don't know, NocturnalDemise lost his home in a building fire a few weeks ago.  If you're not familiar with Noc, he's a community member and artist who has done work for a number of guilds, fansites, and even my podcast.  He and his wife are also expecting their first kid next spring/summer time frame and have been able to get themselves into a temporary apartment until their insurance pays out for their losses.  This process however has been delayed due to a lawsuit against the construction company who built the structure and they are not expecting resolution until next year.

 

I reached out to Noc and informed him that some members of the community (Keaggan & their guild Serrated), asked if I could help out.  I wanted to know what sorts of things he and his wife could use and compiled a list from overstock.com with some of the basics that he asked for.  First thing: Getting off of an air mattress and into a real bed.

 

Here is the list of types of items he said they could really use: 

I've asked for him to show me some paperwork about the insurance claim, which he did, and so I'm here to encourage people to help get he and his wife set up in a livable situation for the holidays.  I chose youcaring.com because there is no risk about meeting the goal (or not getting any funds)and they will receive 100% of your donation.

Thank you for helping out in any way you can!

This request is annoying and inappropriate.  Let me tell you why.  On my island there are over 7000 homeless people, we are in a state of emergency.  These people don't have temporary apartments or insurance claims coming due.  They live under plastic bags draped over bushes.  

And here you have the temerity to beg for new pots and pans.  It is sort of outrageous.

Everyone can decide for themselves whether assisting a once frequent contributor to this community is worth donating their money to.  There are many tragedies all over the world, and trying to compare them is an interminable task.

This sort of appeal to sentiment is gross.  Just because I play the same game as you doesn't give you the right to pester me.  This site is for discussing Crowfall, not begging for new pots and pans.  Disgusting.

We defintely have to question our lifestyles, values and society today more than ever in the last 50 years, but instead we chose to keep to ignore them.

The time passes by where we should and have to act, but instead we ignore everything as long as we are doing well ourselves.

Politics got no answers, they dont even care about the questions/problems or amount of crysis anymore.

A permanent living in a state of crysis has emerged, Finance crysis, Global warming crysis, Refugee crysis, environmental pollution crysis, Terror crysis, and so on.

And all we have as an answer is ignorance as long as we are doing fine ourselves on the costs of others.

Everbody with a halfway clear mindset should be knowing by now, that we cant keep going like we are doing, but all you have is smiling faces of the people still doing fine, ignoring anything that doesnt fit in their perfect world, its disgusting.

I am really unable to sympathise or socialise with such people, and I am glad, society is rotting and crumbling anyway since decades.

But yeah, maybe it was long time just too quiet in europe and people got really too lazy, old and self addicted.

I can assure you, with this attitude the people have today, these quiet times are going to be over by far so very soon, if not already by now, and its going to become much much more dynamic very soon. Because thats is what is happening if you are ignoring anything you dont want to take care of, it evolves and develops inherent dynamism on its own, and in a way which is by far not appreciated by you, thats for sure.

Somehow I really cant wait to see it happen, crumbling down all these superficial annoyances of society and bringing to light whats beneath.

There is always someone worse off in the world, so why should we help anyone at all right?

You just seem bitter and grumpy at this point. 

I actually give money frequently to charities that do go to people in impoverished countries, but people like you makes me just want to stop, since not even helping the poor is obviously good enough for you.. Perhaps I could cure world hunger and end poverty all together, then you might be more inclined to have an actual discussion.

 

But I digress,

1. Members of the community contacted us about this some time ago. For the sake of full disclosure, here was the response I sent to them: 

Since things are still relatively new and decisions we make now will set precedents, this was one I felt I needed to run by the founders to make sure we're all on the same page. Of course our first instinct is always to jump in and do whatever we can for members of the community, but the next thought is to wonder how some shady characters might try to take advantage of that and game the system. All of us have had experiences in the past where we tried to do something altruistic only to learn later that we were scammed. After discussing it, we will allow you to post about it on the forum; sadly, we cannot be involved on the company level for the reasons I mentioned above. 

 

2. Please stay on topic and be civil. If you disagree with the subject matter, navigate to another thread.

You are not being "Pestered" in any way. The thread topic is very clear that it is an appeal for help. You are not being forced to click on it. If the idea of helping someone else offends you then, by all means, don't click on it.

You didn't have to click on this thread, nor did you have to continue reading.  I fail to see how this is pestering.

 

FYI, my Extra Life Nov 7th 2015 Gameday stream raised $275 for Kapi'olani Women's and Children's Hospital on your island.

 

I'm also helping Nocturnal out.

 

Just because someone helps with one thing doesn't mean they can't help with another.  Charity isn't exclusive to one cause or organization.  We help because we have the ability to help those in need.
