Marrowwalks sticky?

Wondering if we should have a special sticky called something like MARROWALKS with a full and clear description of said bug.

Tired of seeing 5 threads called "marrowwalks" or "marrowalk bug?" on page 1.

Opinions?

Anyone up for making it? :p

Agreed that would be a very good thing for our forum.

However, I am of the school of thought that says this is not a bug, but is clearly a bonus to synergies that was designed into the game. I won't rehearse all the arguments here but in the thread when it is made, but please can we not have the thread called "Marrowalks Bug" since I find that mildly offensive and prejudicial to those who have a similar opinion to mine. That irritates me and everyone's point of view should be catered for on an equal basis.

Calling the thread just "Marrowalks", as you suggest, or even "Marrowalks Synergy Effect" would be an accurate and neutral title and allow everyone to have their opinion on this controversial subject considered fairly.
 
Actually,...

I used to frequent the forums much more often pre-1.10 and have returned recently :). But, back to the subject of my post :scratch: . I just did a advanced search like 2 hours ago to find out the "justs" about the Marrowwalk bug, so yes, it would be a great idea.

thx a bunch dark knight

Such a sticky should also include the forum's stance on the Marrowwalk bug and a moratorium on Marrowwalk legality discussions unless it is PvP.

Probably something along the line of:

It is people's own business if they want to abuse game bugs as long as these does not spoil the gameplay of others.

You could also try making the forum Search button 76pt, bold, flourescent pink, and flashing :)

A stickied thread ought to cut down on the number of identical threads though, with any luck.

Bug or not people are going to use it, just like the eth rune situation in 1.09. The fact that there has been any controversy about this, although it doesn't shock me, is quite silly.

Items that give bonuses to skills and skill levels will not add to Synergy bonuses. For example, an Orb with +3 to Fireball, when equipped, does not give any bonus to Firebolt.
That would make it cleary not a bonus or a feature. If you disagree that's fine, but someone calling it a bug isn't offensive or prejudicial in the slightest, it's calling a spade a spade.

You also can't cater to everyone's views equally, some people think maphack use is fine. Do we need to worry offending them if we frown upon it or call it cheating? There is being polite and respectful, and then there is being overly politically correct.

Calling the thread "marrowwalk bug" actually would serve a purpose because it would help people find the specific information they were looking for. I would be annoyed if I came here looking for information on skeletons and had to dig around because someone insisted on having the forum call them "flesh and cartilage impaired helpers" because they found the terms skeleton and summons offensive. There is a fine line between monitoring/censoring language appropriately and being downright silly about it.

map hack you download,the eth bug blizzard stated it was a bug if it was a bug they would have said so most people call it a bug because they made thier necros early and didnt incorporate it into their build 'marrowalk feature' !

I'll write something up soon (unless someone beats me to it...unlikely.;) ) Dk, good call.

I'll make it short and sweet but with specifics and I plan to entitle the thread;

Marrowalk's Bug/Feature:An explantion

Or just;

Marrowalk's Bug/Feature

I'll have it out it about a week, again, unless someone writes it up first...:cool:

I am of the opinion that it is a bug, even a lot of people who use it acknowledge it's a bug, but justify its use other ways. BUT I don't think bug should be in the title. I think the title should be something like:

"READ: about Marrowalk boots"

"Marrowalk and synergy"

"Sloppy code from blizzard aka MARROWALK"

:D

Sticky would be nice. It will keep everyones post counts down...lol.

(I'm sick of having to "redirect" people to older topics and use the search button for them... :p )

make sure that everytime you say something like:

"The marrowalk bug is..."
You also throw in something to stop all the people that whine and cry about how it's a feature.

and vice versa

That will be intended in my thread, hence, the choice of title;
Marrowwalk's bug/feature:An explanation
I might just call the thread;
Marrowwalk's explained

Probrably the second title actually. I will make both "cases" known, but I now think it's almost clearly a bug. I'm sure some 1.09 Zons defended their pericing guided with claims of "feature". :uhhuh:

I don't know from 1.09 Zons though...

If I wasn't busy I'd just do it right now.
