Recently, an items faction dissolved that had the sole rights to a few datacards.
When that faction disbanded the datacards went bye bye, including all assigned out cards leaving those items removed from the game completely for the time being.
Can admin/asims please work something out regarding these cards as the help room has been asked a dozen times so far regarding what is happening with them and complaining because they lost the ones they had assigned, not to mention people trying to claim them for their current group since no one has them.
Bang your heads together and work something out please (a sim news would be nice too).
I've contacted the Admins about AAI dissolving. I was selling the shell to another items faction to merge the two, based on the SimNews about the new rules and the merge capability, as I didn't want to see the datacards lost either, and do not have the time IRL to look after the faction. When AAI was dissolved, it happened in mid-trade, while under the ownership of the middle myself and the buyer had agreed upon. There was no need for the dissolution of the faction, and I haven't seen anything yet regarding whether or not the rules did, in fact, change, or if the merge faction capability was even implemented.
As I mentioned to the Admins, there was no need for the faction to dissolve, as I could have very easily put enough assets back into Arakyd to prevent bankruptcy until those rules were straightened out. That message was sent days ago; I have yet to receive a response.
I´m not in the position to do a simnews about that. Although I think it has been posted there before, but long time ago could also have been stated during last years dev meeting either on the public Q&A logs or directly on simnews. but not sure.
If it dissolved "per rules" I doubt admins would restore the faction. If you intended to merge it with another group would have been your responsibility to make sure that the faction would fulfill all the requirements while doing so.
