Do you need more medics?

Hi, are you looking for more medics for the sweat support events? If so, how do I join, and how does it work?

Thanks

Just show up to the events and ask the hosts or medics to connect you to Conquistador, he'll let you know if any positions are available currently.

Cheers

Phew, I thought the community was over but it seems still on-going after 5 years. My 6K sweat stack from 5 years ago needs a home...

Thought today was week day and came in happy to participate in the SSI event, it came out today's Sunday and it was at the afternoon, and I lost it.

These last days I missed almost every day events because we're moving to north of Spain, but I hope I can continue participating every day as before.

Regards,
Crinlorite.

Today this moron - Balam Balam TheKing, asked this question on the SSI: "2020-11-22 15:42:34 [Local] [Balam Balam TheKing] Question: In the past, I showed my love to win with sharing region Alsace.What is the supercar manufacturer has Headquarters in this same town? " :D Next time he will ask what color was the vomit he emitted last night? What does this have to do with the game? For a long time no one answered this question and, of course, many were unhappy with it.
But the main problem is different: I got into the list of winners. This Balam wrote at 15:55 that he was buying the sweat from the winners, but I missed this message (my messages disappeared, like after relog) and, 5 minutes later, when I asked when it would be possible to sell the sweat, he replied, that I was late and tried to win next time. "Funny." How can a winner lose their prize? What is the problem with selling this sweat 5 minutes later or postponing the purchase to the next day? Usually, if someone didn't come up to buy, the buyer would call him in the chat. But this body did nothing of the kind.
Then, when I asked in the chat channel "ola42-ssi" if it was possible to solve this issue, a next moron wrote: "2020-11-22 16:42:56 [# ola42-ssi] [Conquistador Conq45 45] 10k were sold event over ". How could a 10k sweat sell if I didn't sell my share? :) It turns out that this Balam and his friend appropriate 2.5 PED for an unsold sweat? I have a lot of respect for charity events, and I am outraged by the presence of such idiots at them. As a newbie, it was very unpleasant for me to be deceived AT A CHARITY EVENT.
I understand that there is no point in writing anywhere about this, but I still hope that someone from the adequate organizers of the SSI will read and dismiss this person from any actions on the SSI.
P. S. Sorry for my English :)

People make mistakes, communication can also be difficult with all the languages in EU, people do the right thing and are still berated for it due to differences of opinion. BIG has purchased over 50,000,000 sweat to support new players over the past decade, this is due to the great team that donates their time to help manage these events every single day. Balam and Conq are two of the most supportive helpful people I know. They donate their time and do their best to keep things orderly and fair. Your audacity in appealing to ownership with "Today this Moron", "a next moron wrote" "such idiots at them" is deplorable and you should be ashamed of yourself. If you had approached this differently, I would have gladly addressed your concerns with a professional discussion, however, you did not. Moving forward, BIG will no longer include you in events or random sweat buys. I suggest you treat people better in the future and have some common decency.

P.S. Get off my lawn :)

You have been unreasonable.

The prize is awarded on the condition that the transfer must be done within a certain timeframe. This was not done by you.
Yes, you stated that you have not received the notification on screen bcos your message disappeared.

However, although this might be construed as "not your fault", pls be cognizant that this is also not BIG Industries' fault as they do NOT control the software that you are using. That software belongs to and is controlled by Mind Ark.

While there is no problem buying or selling later, the conditions of the award was clearly stated in the beginning. And it is within BIG Industries' rights to waive the conditions of the award, if they so desire or to stick to the conditions of the award (as they probably want to be fair to all other deals that had happened in the past and deals that will happen in the future).

So, your insistence that BIG Industries are at fault for the notifications (which are beyond their control) and that they must waive the conditions of the award for you are really unreasonable and baseless.

Given that BIG Industries are doing this out of the goodness of their hearts to help newbies and that they have already helped 50 mil people albeit that some may be repeat winners, your post is really of bad taste.

Disclaimer
I'm not on their side bcos I have the privilege of helping out in the SSI event, but I'm on the side of those who are right.
Your reputation in this game is very important, just as in life. And just as in life, think before words come out of your mouth or gets written down. As a great man said more than 2,000 years ago, it is not what goes into someone that defines him, it is what comes out.
Peace.

I will call idiots idiots. This idiot did not even try to do something or explain the difficulty of solving this problem.
Well, okay, I was just trying to find justice for people who vilify the SSI. It is a pity that you are so weak of character.

As I am called on, please allow me to write here to prevent any confusion of readers and clarify my standing.

First of all, I announce at beginning the rule for the event. This rules shows the base of the process everyone should follow including myself.
Then why did people took a time to answer? Because they had to think about it or search, not because they are not happy about it.
Some participant likes everyone know the answer type of questions, some like bit of thinking and research needed questions.
This is due to player's personality as well as their style. I do and will ask both type of questions. The question does not have to be game related, but it will be something answer can be found easily if you know or search the internet. There for color of my vomit won't be a question unless that is top search result in the internet.

Ok, now move onto the specific actions by you.
You said in the Local chat first that I never announced the winners. Then other participants copy and pasted that fact I have.
This was done after SSI session is over. If you have said before the event is over, as I explained I would have guided to sell and showed my location.
As the point we care about is that participant are active and paying attention to the local chat, if someone is not looking for while and miss the trade within the event timeframe, we typically do not award the person for that day unless there is special reasons.

Also, when you talked in the Local chat or PM. The approach you took was not honest, if you come to me and said you missed the chat due to your lack of paying attention or certain reason that can't be avoided. I may have traded using my own PED instead if it is first time like I have done to many players in past years. Yet, your approach to first say there was no announcement and when other participants clarify you, then to complain and claims you have rights while you did not follow the rule. This is something I believe lacks the honesty and moral for the communication.

Blast and Conq both have strong character, who build and devoted their effort to create and sustain the BIG Industry and teams.
This is not something ordinary player can do, and it takes a lot of effort and continuous care to sustain.
The problem is not difficult to solve, but I consider the problem is at your side not following the rule. Please note, all trade have been conducted on that day which only you have not paid attention.

I have another statement I would like to make here for all participants.
Recently, there have been a increasing number of participants who didn't pay attention to the Local chat.
I been buying the sweat with my own PED if the person comes up to me, and answers my questions honestly by acknowledging that they have missed it at their fault and if it was their first time. If they come up first to say, I did not announce or the problem is on my side while they didn't pay attention. I re-state the solid rule to them.
This situation some may recognize, but please be honest and not just to push your desire but to follow the rule.
Personally, I believe some of reason is that they are watching streams while playing which has nothing wrong to do. Yet, we have the rule for the event to be fair for everyone, so please do not forget to follow the rule.

Thank you all for reading and I appreciate your support.

Balam has been with BIG Industries working with the SSI event for years and understands the way SSI runs quite well. I do not doubt his ability to handle an SSI, as SSI questions are not limited to the Entropia Universe and sometimes SSI hosts like to be creative to add a twist.

As for your wording, I have full confidence in Conq45 as the BIG Industries planet lead for Calypso. As a former LA healer and hunt host for BIG Industries, Conq45 has done an excellent job ensuring all BIG Industries events are running smoothly, and he even stays on stand-by in case a hunt host has problems. His reputation is outstanding and his dedication to helping players, both new and old allowed me to understand why Blast gave him the General Manager position in the first place.
