[MSU] My Latest Projects
Over the latest few months I’ve been blogging less and less (from 60 posts in June and 66 in July to just 22 so far this October). Why? I don’t know. But I’ve been working on a few stuff that you’ll start seeing on The msupdate Blog soon enough. And even when I’m slacking off, you can always get the latest MapleStory news at Maple-News.
Nexon America’s Quarter 4 Approval Rating Poll
You voted from August 6 to August 20, and again from September 23 to September 29, but what do Maplers now think about how Nexon is running the game. The announcement of Big Bang, the release of Ghost Ship in the Mist and the upcoming release of Ulu City. The greater transparency and accountability on Nexon’s part? How has it influenced your opinion of them? From November 1 to November 19 you’ll be voting for the final time for the year.
In Q3 2010, it was found that 45.23% of maplers approved of Nexon’s running of the game, and in September 62.71%, a massive improvement of nearly 17.5%. Has Nexon kept up the good work, or has the community’s views of them deteriorated over the past month? We’ll know soon enough.
Estimated Release Date: November 1
Chryse Prediction Page
My predictions on when Chryse will arrive in GlobalMS will be added soon. For now I’ll tell you that I’m thinking April to June, with May being most likely.
Estimated Release Date: October 31
New and Upcoming Content in Foreign Versions: October
Many updates came to foreign services of MapleStory this month and are coming soon. It’s always nice to be informed as to where foreign services are in comparison to GlobalMS or if foreign services have received any interesting content. I posted last month’s edition on Maple-News so check it out!
Estimated Release Date: October 28/29
This Month in Our Past: November

Estimated Release Date: November 1
MapleStory Pre-Big Bang
A short video series will begin filming this November entitled “MapleStory Pre-Big Bang”. My team will be making videos and photographs of current MapleStory to keep forever because starting this December, MapleStory will never be the same again. Although I’m going to enjoy Big Bang very much, I know i’ll be crying my eyes out the day that Maple World is changed. We must keep a reminder of MapleStory Pre-Big Bang.
Filming: November 5-Big Bang Release Date
Estimated Release Date of First Video: December 1
More information on how to view these videos and screenshots will be revealed this November.
Nexon Wikipedia Page
I’m known as “Mserver” on Wikipedia and am the most active contributor to the Nexon Wikipedia article. I do daily inspections of the article to make sure that information remains valid and updated and the article isn’t being trolled. I also do my “Regular update, cleanup and corrections” around once every two weeks where I add fresh new information, correct past information and do my best to cleanup the article. I’ll of course continue to work on this for as long as I possibly can.
BlockParty Wikipedia Page
The BlockParty Wikipedia article is now open! It was created by me (“Mserver” on Wikipedia) this weekend. The official name is “BlockParty (game portal)”. Check it out and be free to contribute if you can!
Dragon Nest Wikipedia Page
I’ll begin contributing the Dragon Nest Wikipedia article soon. The article is actually pretty beat up right now, but I’ll try my hardest to fix it up. Thanks to “JacobDells”, it is full of information and more will be added soon.
The msupdate Youtube
My own youtube channel, “The Msupdate Youtube” has been opened but has not yet been revealed. It will be revealed when I get closer to releasing “MapleStory Pre-Big Bang”. If you really want to find it, check some of the recent videos on The msupdate Blog, some are uploaded on The msupdate Youtube.
