Exactly. Now they have NO EXCUSE AT ALL not to add a way for, at the very least, reputation projects to be cancelled if someone makes a mistake and chooses the wrong project.

True. For a fleet this could be exploited just like you said. What they need to do is allow fleet/embassy projects to be cancelled ONLY if not a single thing has been contributed yet. Even if 1 expertise or 1 dilithium is contributed it can't be cancelled. This will avoid exploitation and avoid fleet members getting mad having a project cancelled after they contributed a fair amount to it. For rep systems, that's a whole 'nother story. You don't gain anything for contributing (until the project is finished completely), and if you cancel a project you lose anything you added and it only affects you and you alone.

Also, in case you missed tonight's patch notes post, the Klingon AND Federation Starbase ornaments default to off.

Cheers,

Thanks Cryptic/PWE,

Listening to us is a good first step. I am glad to see that both those who hate the fact they did the project and those who still want to do it win. those who did it but hate it, get it auto switched off and the option to remove it. those who wanna keep it around until they finish it can do just that.


as said before by others an option to switch or change projects both on the starbases/Embassies and on the personal rep would be awesome.

Thanks Brandon.

Thanks for listening to and acting on the feedback given.

Also, it's awesome you guys have changed the ornament to start as off, it was nice during the holidays, but it looks out of place now haha.

Buying the ornaments off of the exchange is not an IMPLEMENTED way.

I will find those posts by yellow names to remind them this was not the solution they said was in the mix and not the solution the community expected.
No, we were told by Cryptic that there WOULD be a way to get rid of it so that fleets aren't stuck with it.

Actually, I just looked up the posts and we told something very ambiguous that there will be a solution. Well this is a solution, just not one players expected as a gesture of good faith.

I feel sorry for all the players of fleets that spent their free time and in-game currencies trying to obtain this only to have it wiped. I know I would feel like all my time and effort was wasted.
