An Open Letter to Disney from 9Dragons Players
by Cursed Love (Official Closed Beta) on 30 august 2010 la 17:35
Attention 9Dragons players. The Hermit is going to attempt to negotiate further to help Disney understand the importance to all of us in restoring our Character Information. It would help greatly if a large number of players would read the open letter below, which we believe expresses the thinking of most 9D players regarding this unfortunate situation. If you would like to be included in our desperate plea, please add yourself to this post. You can simply copy and paste the open letter below, and change it if there is anything you disagree with, or write your own brief message (no flaming please), and then when we have a significant number of requests we will bring this to the attention of the Disney executives, and pray they will consider our combined plea.
Pass this on to anyone you think may feel the same as you do, and this is the link: http://www.facebook.com/note.php?saved&¬e_id=143354589035579&id=127241003974742
Dear Disney Executives,
I am a player of the videogame 9Dragons, which was developed by the game company Indy21 and published by Acclaim Games. As you know, the game has now been moved to a new publisher, GamersFirst, following your acquisition of both Playdom and Acclaim, but the character database has not been transferred. I fully understand that Disney is a newcomer to this deal and that Disney personally bares me no ill will. I would really like to have my Character Data transferred as well, so that I can continue playing where I left off. I understand that there are legal issues regarding the transfer of my Personal Data. By registering here on this facebook page I am requesting that you reconsider your decision not to transfer the data in a way that will not cause you any liability. There is a distinct difference between my Personal Data (such as my email address and personal information), and that of my Character Data (which records my in-game character’s name, level and equipment), and all I am asking is that you transfer the Character Data over, and then the responsibility for matching my personal info and that character’s data can be handled and verified between myself and the game’s developer, Indy21, with no Personal Data violation committed by Disney, Playdom or Acclaim whatsoever; and I will further sign any further documentation you wish that can make this possible. It is my understanding that the transfer of the Character Data for our entire community is a simple matter technologically speaking and will take less than a half hour of your time, and I sincerely hope you will take this matter under full consideration. I really want to have my Character Data moved and I believe it will bring a lot of good will toward your company.

I have the impression or Hermit wants to promote his new game call Cursed Love ?
Oh, it is not only me …
Facebook was down, but now its up again
To sign u need to “like” Hermits new mmorpg Cursed love. Go go go we need more ppl to sign that thing
Another try from hermit to promote his new game lolz ….
Everything you can see from that page is advertising that their beta game starting Monday. If he did think about the players, he would do much better job back then
And got this from Sed :
Cursed Love (Official Closed Beta) This is rumor control: Acclaim was fully prepared to hand over the database and created a deal to do so with Gamersfirst; however GamersFirst prematurely announced that the player database would transfer over despite warnings from Fugen and The Hermit that the deal was not signed and false expectations might result in disaster. Acclaim was following direct orders from Disney to shut down the servers when they did. The Hermit attempted to intervene the night of shutdown and allow the servers to stay open so that players would have time to complete screenshots (as Bardo was still sleeping), and communicated this to Howard Marks. Mr. Marks agreed it was in the best interest of the players and agreed; however, at 20 minutes to midnight PST, a lawyer from Disney contacted Acclaim and ordered the servers shut down immediately. Acclaim had no choice but to comply. Why Joshua Hong is blaming Acclaim when he knows this, is beyond Steven. Regardless, he hopes Joshua is correct in his forecast. GamersFirst has not reached out to Steven, and Steven currently has no relation or animosity toward them, he is merely working with Indy21 by their request to help determine the best resolution in the interest of the players. Steven continues to be concerned regarding continued promises made by GamersFirst regarding full character restoration, as it may not be possible, and continues diligently to work with Indy21.
