This morning we pulled the final numbers and specifics on the survey. It will be “closed’ in the next day or so.
We didn’t pre-announce the closing because we didn’t want to tip off our little friends into making a sprint on the gaming front.
Here’s what happens next:
- We’ll take a look at the data to figure out what’s real and what’s not.
- We’re considering releasing the raw data to the public, so everyone can see what we’re looking at…. (gives our little Gamer friends time to go change their undies, since they probably just soiled them)…But we may not be able to due to privacy concerns. We’ll see.
- We’ll let you know what the results are, and our decision, next week.
In the mean time, I will let you all know that for some time after the survey numbers started to come in, I’ve had our folks working on setting up the right infrastructure in Amazon (just in case, you know), and SamSyn is working on a Cool-io migration program to, if we need it, migrate avatars and their possessions, buddies, ignores, etc, etc from the “old” system to the “new” system. (IF There is re-opened, I’m most excited about the fact you will be in a nice clean, empty system. You have no idea how much crap (there’s no other word for it) built up in the old system. If nothing else, it offended our geeky sensibilities of order, and probably had other negative impacts, too. )
So, stay tuned.
P.S. Please don’t pummel me with questions about Free Accounts, Trial Accounts, or under 18 access at this time.
P.S.S. If you _do_ pummel me about under 18 access, please at least try to use correct spelling and grammatically correct sentences. That will make it harder for me to respond “Well, you should be in school studying up on spelling and grammer anyway, not hanging out in There”.
P.S.S.S. If you _do_ pummel me about under 18 access, please at least try not to give me pathetic arguments about “It should be free”. That will make it harder for me to respond “Go read Atlas Shrugged, then come back and we’ll discuss it.”
