Evony Language Thread & Scout Changes

Sunday, August 16th, 2009

Interestingly enough, the Evony forum has opened two beta language threads for players who do not speak the primary language (English). This means that there will now be more aid for those who speak French and Spanish (I’m sure more will be added as time continues).

Spanish Thread
French Thread

Evony is now more intent on the Scout Changes, and look to implement it a little later on:

“To help balance the upcoming change that will make it more difficult for players to gain information on other player’s cities, we are planning to make a change to scouting that will reduce one of the random elements that can hurt scout chances.

Currently, there is a small chance that scouts will fight all of the cities defenders on scouting missions, instead of just their scouts. We plan to change this, so that scouts will only fight other scouts on these missions. This will make scouting missions more likely to succeed and reduce what has been a source of frustration for some players.

We want scouts to be useful tools for gathering information and preventing other players from gathering information. We think this change is right in line with this philosophy.”

b. ii. Why isn’t my thread or my post appearing?


There is only one reason why your post would not be appearing. It’s because your posts need to be “approved” and are in the moderation que for approval. You’ll have to wait until a moderator approves your post or thread. Your threads and posts are put into moderation probably because the system suspects you to be a spam bot. The reason for this is because you posted a link or URL within your first or second post on Evony. You were then “flagged”. To un-flag yourself, please contact Valkirah or Dawnseeker to adjust your account so that you no longer have to get your posts or threads approved.

c. How to search for information

a. The staff hierarchy: explained


Contrary to what you may think, colored names on the forum do not necessarily mean “Evony staff”.

Evony members – This is the ordinary player who is out there to have some fun. The color for regular members is plain:

Evony Forum Members

Evony forum moderators – Evony forum moderators are volunteers who are in no way hired or paid by the company, Evony LLC. Forum moderators volunteered to help organize and maintain order within the forum. The color for forum moderators is green:

b. How to report a forum moderator


It’s quite simple to report an abusive forum moderator. All you have to do is send a private message to Valkirah or Dawnseeker and tell them about the situation. They will deal with it accordingly.

c. How to become a forum moderator


It’s also easy to apply to be a forum moderator, but not easy to become one.

First, you must apply to be a forum moderator by sending a message to Evony Admin.

Second, you must wait for him to reply. Upon the reply, you will receive your rejection or acceptance. Good luck!
