Urgent Evoke

A crash course in changing the world.

No game without the drama!

My friend John Patrick just published this:

attention people this website is not what you think it is a scam , the world bank wants to expand into other areas thay will take youe innovative ideas and use them for thear own marketing and money making plans , i give alot of good ideas and thay closed my account, thay want your ideas and then thay will send you a printable diploma, i alread have one that says i am a doctor never went to med school and never treated a pacient

I find this interesting for a lot of reasons.

First of all: What happened to John's blog entries? Did they get erased? All of them? If so - why? Copyright infringement?

Has there been any discussion about this anywhere?

I have sent a PM to John asking him for more information about this.

Then there is John's statements.

The world bank wants to expand into other areas thay will take youe innovative ideas and use them for thear own marketing and money making plans

Oh, nothing like a great conspiracy theory! Whether or not this is true, well, we will see. I actually haven't seen any EULA for EVOKE, and I don't Really know who owns the rights to the content I publish here. Has anyone seen anything?

Well, just take a look at the Terms and Conditions - you find the link to it on the bottom of every page. I quote:

24. User grants The World Bank a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free, perpetual,irrevocable, fully sub-licensable and transferable right to use, reproduce, modify, delete,adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, perform and display suchPosted Information throughout the world in any media.

I am not a lawyer, so I don't know how this related to that of other games. We all know that Blizzard owns the character I build in World of Warcraft. Facebook has more ownership over our data than most of us are aware of.

These are important questions, and we as players need to know the full extent of our rights - in this game as well as IRL ("In Real Life")

I'm not a lawyer, but from what I understand of these things, the boilerplate you posted is what Evoke/WBI needs to be able to republish our submitted material on the web, but doesn't take away our right to repost our own material elsewhere (or even publish/get paid for it) as long as we don't retroactively revoke WBI's rights.

That may not be quite so clear as I intended...

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
