Do u remember that post about "gems, sockets---mmorpg"

do u remember that post about “gems, sockets—mmorpg”. several people criticized that post by someone; saying that it would make this game look like an mmorpg with sword fighting, i also agreed to that.The one rpg i played online was ‘kingsroad’ that had 'jewels, sockets ,gems , fusion,evolve " etc. Now i feel that some one from the dev’s took that post seriously(or was it made by someone among them?)
jewel,gem=gold (actually SM currency was not bad; gold is an age old currency; gold makes the game still more a mmorpg)
sockets=? (that one was already there in the game as ‘slots’)
