@Kapich We are aware of this issue and it will be fixed in next week's patch. As mentioned above Prom is currently out of the country and is unable to address these issues at this time.
Uriel is a developer along with many other things and while he is able to fix these issues, he cannot release a patch for them, that is something only Prom can do. Uriel may not be active when it comes to posting however he is very busy behind the scenes, same goes for our Graphic Artist.
@Roundwaters We are aware of the low population at the moment and rest assure that we have big plans coming in September that should definitely increase the playerbase. LinkRealms is a project that we are passionate about, even though it lacks funding it is something we are still investing our time in and believe me we are not giving up on this project.
Quite a few changes have been made based on community feedback, just because we have not made LockPicking a working skill does not mean that we are unable or unwilling to make changes. We are aware of this request and while I cannot speak for the development team, there must be a reason behind not making any changes to it.
It is important to understand that development takes time, especially with such a small team. We try our best to get content out to you guys and fix bugs in a timely manner, but it doesn't always work out for the best and sometimes to give you guys the content you have been patiently awaiting we need to do it over time, a good example is with the Criminal System, we were so quick to put it in place that we have not yet had time to implement quests to lower Assassin status, which are coming soon by the way.
We appreciate all of your feedback and support. I hope this answers most of your questions, if you have any more feel free to ask.
