No, we don’t know yet if ThereIM will open at the end of the week exactly

We will know more later today. People have been working allll weekend.

If we don’t make it this week, I guarantee everyone who paid for June will receive a full refund.

    this game is so awesome, i used it for my physiology class, miss spending time in “there”, i wonder if they may get a yearly plan than would help us save some money.

  3. #3 by Skyefire on 2011.06.29 - 3:49 pm

    I would love access to the forum archives so much, but I doubt we will ever see them again. They had gotten pretty huge.

    I’d actually pay extra for access to them for a month or two.

    If the There Forums will not be re-opened when There2 is up and running, would it be possible just to upload the original There Forums as an archive – just for viewing only.

      I highly doubt our forum posts were saved when There closed.

      I know salty, It`s as if Mw is eatting a big juicy steak infront of us and we hav`nt eatin in a week. Come on Mw open IM plzzzz, Feed us our steak were hungry.

  6. #8 by Zandarkei on 2011.06.29 - 9:52 am

    So far I am understanding…ThereIM will be up soon..then afterwards There itself. The Gulpie thing… this means when we buy refills of drinks the amount will be doubled because MW ia footing the bill for the other half?…ok that was a joke before anyone starts getting excited…I know MW smiled on that one..lighten up peeps..relax …the fun will begin soon…

  7. #9 by jerzeesweetheart on 2011.06.29 - 9:44 am

    I didn’t even know payments were already being accepted… or did I miss something? lol. I’ll just check my old ThereIM installation to see if anything is going on :p I don’t even remember which of my 30+ email addresses communication is being sent to… guess I need to spend a few hours of searching, haha

  13. #17 by Therian Fan on 2011.06.28 - 8:26 pm

    I am not sure if you are able to respond to this yet, but I remember you told us that you’ve completed the Mac client for There. Do you have the requirements that you will need inorder to run There? In July, Apple is releasing there new OS, and I am thinking of upgrading my Mac. If I upgrade to the new operating system, will There software be compatible to the latest Mac version? Also, do you have any plans on making ThereIM a Mac version?

    Thank you for your time.

    I’ve got a question cuz I’ve read the post and you said there’s people who paid for June? How did they do that? I didn’t know We could pay already for join. May someone answer me please? Or you just a quick answer MW?

    Thanks you!!!!!

    • #20 by Jordan on 2011.06.28 - 7:56 pm

      It was a joke dear. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • #21 by HighFlier on 2011.06.28 - 8:14 pm

      They’re in the Gulpie phase still. Sorry this isn’t the quickie answer your looking for but here’s my suggestion.

      Get a big gulp from your nearest 7/11 make sure the ice doesn’t melt and place it in the fridge for safe keeping then start at the very top of the page and read every single comment back to here. The answer is in there. ‘burp PS. Don’t worry about hot dogs I don’t think he’s to concerned with those it’s mainly the big gulps he’s after. You see here’s the deal, he’s promised new shiny avatars. I hope this does not confuse you even more. I’m sorry if it does man.

      Holds out my bucket now for my share of the gulpie brew.

    • #22 by Xait on 2011.06.28 - 8:33 pm

  19. #31 by Eric D. Copeland on 2011.06.28 - 2:44 pm

    Just so everyone knows how much I like there ,I think 10 bux a month is a steal for THIS (There).I would still GLADLY pay the money just to get to play again even if i knew There was going to shut back down! ANYONE who produces a product as cool as THERE deserves to make a profit! It would be great to have Guaranties on everything in life. I’m sure We as customers would love to know There would never close. I’m sure Michael and Makena would love to know that all the time AND MONEY put into this product would not only break even but make a profit!I personally think,if There was a profit making venture in 2009 and there was money to run off with,,,,There would have never closed!!!.On my first month i will send 20 dollars for you (Michael) and your crew to get each of you a SUPPER BIG GULP!!! Can’t wait to be in world again (but i have to ) ๐Ÿ™‚

    • #32 by Sara on 2011.06.28 - 3:47 pm

      Yes this is a bit of a gamble to get There going again. But they are taking a chance on a new business model. Some are crying like babies about it acting like they can’t afford it when they go out and waste their money in a bar and spend 60 bucks in a night. Or buy other stupid things but for some reason since There was free once they think it isn’t worth the money or it is unfair. Well they tried it that way and in this multiple avatar worlds climate we live in it is tough to make it. There are many. Secondlife and I can list a few more. but I will leave them out because they aren’t worth speaking of in my opinion. Myself I am looking forward to having There back for a 10 spot a month. And if it falls again someday so-be-it. All I know is when it shut down I regretted not taking a lot more screenshots of some of my places and the good times I had. So I am going back in and going to take some screenshots doing a lot of things. All my places so I have a great collection I will always have for slideshows in the future. But this time it might just stay up and running for 20 more years.

      • #33 by IceAnge1 on 2011.06.28 - 5:47 pm

        I’m with you on regretting not taking more screen shots, I will definitely go out of my way to do that this time around to preserve the memories. Maybe even make a few videos. =]

    • #36 by HighFlier on 2011.06.28 - 4:35 pm

      Can he get a Planet Gulp or a Universe Gulp man? ha! Maybe you should get him a foot long chili dog if you have plans of meeting him @ zephie. O, would be so mean! I hear you shouldn’t get one of those if you have a long trip ahead of you. โ“

      Whoa man! I didn’t realize they have Big Gulps all over the world. In japan it’s a Gulp too. Demand Bucket Gulps! ‘burp ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

      • #37 by StingrayJames on 2011.06.29 - 2:51 am

        We will just have to make an “uber gulp” just for him .. and a 7 foot long chilli dog lol … i think i could arrange that ! ,, lol we have slurpee’s too … careful with the brain freeze tho.

    Just wondeirng what is ‘ThereIM’ and how is that different from normal There?

    • #62 by JasonMK on 2011.06.27 - 7:11 pm

      ThereIM is a basic Instant Message interface (like AOL IM), nothing like normal There except for the people.

      • #63 by jimony on 2011.06.28 - 2:01 am

        It is more like normal There than AOL IM or other Instant Message interfaces. It is a 3D interface that is like a blank There world where your avatar is stuck in a group chat with the other avatars logged in. You can type talk with chat bubbles, dance and other emotes, and check your inventory and change clothes.

    • #64 by Jordan on 2011.06.27 - 7:22 pm

      Well. THereIM is kinda like MSN. Skype. ICQ. Ect.
      You can change,See your avatar(Other people avi’s people that you are in a chat with too) and text chat (no voice chat sadly)

      • #65 by David H on 2011.06.27 - 9:51 pm

        Ah ok, thanks, I’ve been really confused. So is it a completely separate application?

  35. #66 by markala balogun on 2011.06.27 - 6:02 pm

    ok i have a question y do u have to be 18 or older not that iam not 18 cause i am but y not 16 or 15 years old can play is there going be something wrong or bad on there like inappropriate

    • #67 by JasonMK on 2011.06.27 - 7:10 pm

      Yes, you have to be 18 for There2.

    • #68 by Skyefire on 2011.06.27 - 8:10 pm

      The answer to “why” is mostly COPPA. By federal law, it is far more expensive to run a VW that allows people in under 18. In the past, the money spent by those under 18 did not cover the cost of the additional employees and whatever else was needed to comply with the law. Under-18s are also responsible for a disproportionate number of reversed charges, which adds up both in cash lost and problems with Visa and Mastercard.

      So, basically, the poll indicated There should be able to make enough money to sustain itself as an 18+ only world. They were not able to come up with business model that allowed those under 18 in and still would turn a profit, or be worth the extra work.

      • #69 by Eatings,Sputters,Pneumonia,ect. on 2011.06.28 - 5:23 am

        On top of that- Minors are the one’s who cause the majority of the griefing that goes on in There. The finances aren’t being based off of in-game employees to babysit minors. But, (if I read correctly) MW said that this MAY be a temporary rule. So, just wait a tad longer kids! (:

    • #70 by Eatings,Sputters,Pneumonia,ect. on 2011.06.28 - 5:25 am

      There’s not going to be anything “inappropriate” in T2. It’s just the finances aren’t there for minors to be babysitted.<–Is it babysitted or babysat? Oh well. (:

      • #71 by markala balogun on 2011.06.28 - 6:59 am

        ok lets just say right now that this one person is under 18, but they said there parents would pay every month to be a member y not let them in even there paying every month

      • #72 by Skyefire on 2011.06.28 - 7:29 am

        Markala, did you even read my response? I did answer exactly that. I will shorten my answer.

        Federal law.

      • #73 by Eatings,Sputters,Pneumonia,ect. on 2011.06.28 - 7:45 am

        There’s laws against minors being on virtual chat rooms, without moderation. Although, majority of the minors ARE going to use their parent’s credit cards. We would never know they’re minors without them admitting to, or acting as, a minor.

      • #74 by markala b. on 2011.06.28 - 4:26 pm

    Just a suggestion. Seeing how many people there are on this forum, There’s no where near enough people to give up the funds needs. Perhaps do some advertising on MySpace, Facebook, Google, Bing? Those are just some top sites I know thousands of people an hour go on too.

    • #82 by Kev on 2011.06.27 - 3:08 pm

      Its kinda funny to me, how your suggesting advertising methods, to a C.E.O. of a company… Lol.

      • #83 by Eatings, Sputters, Pneumonia, ect. on 2011.06.27 - 6:03 pm

        Well, just think about it. How many users are commenting on this forum? About 1,000, if even. 1k x $10 = 10k x 12 = $120k. That’s not enough money.

    • #87 by evenstupider on 2011.06.28 - 5:32 am

      I don’t think the amount of people you see on here is a true reflection of people interested in playing If you carefully read the posts you’ll see a commonality of posts listing things like: “HEY MR. WILSON, THANKS FOR THE HEADS UP”, “WHY DO U HAVE TO BE 18 2 PLAY?!?!?”, ” WHAT’S THEREIM”, “YAY, IM GLAD I’ll BE GOING BACK TO MY HOME”. Most people take the news at it is, and are just patiently awaiting the game. I think the key indicator of influence behind Makena’s decision was the amount of people that filled out the survey based on referrals and out of response to the e-mail campaign they ran.

      As for your suggestion: “Perhaps do some advertising on MySpace, Facebook, Google, Bing?” – I think Makena being a technology company prrrrobably considered this outlet. The thing is, isn’t a new product that has just been placed on the market. In fact, it’s been around for almost a decade. Hence their concern isn’t “hey, how are we going to market this product to consumers who don’t know about it?”. Instead, their focus is “can we efficiently cut costs so that our service isn’t running at a loss?” and, “do we have enough interest from current consumers as of right now to run the business at a profit”. (unfortunately cash is the life line of every business). Once they establish this goal, then I think they will turn their focus to expansion and expand their marketing efforts.

        Like “Hey, We’re back, and better than ever!” type thing.
        I do however take back the Myspace and Facebook ideas though. Nothing but kids looking for dates on them two anymore. But Google, and Bing are big hits.

    • #89 by ARTIE on 2011.06.28 - 5:37 am

      Well the majority of forum readers, I would bet, are lurkers. I am sure MW has an IP logger to show every IP that shows up to read and not post. So don’t worry. Instead of suggesting advertizing, do it your self. If you want THERE to have a good second birth then email 100 of your friends and tell them how much fun entertainment can be had for only $10 a month.

      In today’s world viral advertizing is best, so go tell your friends, everyone at work, everyone you meet in the grocery. Go to the movie theater and tell everyone in line that THERE is way more fun, more entertaining, and much cheaper. I want MW to spend all the money on development.

        Actually I have vials of DNA extracted from everyone who visits this site. DNA which is extracted automatically through my new, patented, over-the-internet DNA extraction technology. That’s how I’m going to tell if you’re 18 or not.

        Viral advertising does work very well… except people are stubborn. Without visuals of what happens, they will just toss the idea out of the window. That’s why on movie trailers and such, they show what goes on in the movie. Otherwise people would just hear talk, and say, “Oh… that’s cool. -_-” And probably never even check it out.
        On Bing and Google, you can place a banner, atleast giving a little preview. Also We can do our part, and LIKE the Facebook page. Now that Bing has the friends suggestion thing.

      • #92 by Cellophane on 2011.06.28 - 4:54 pm

        It is so funny to me that you speak of telling friends; when I was in I had so many AFK friends who could not understand or grasp the concept of having a ‘life’ or ‘living life’ in a virtual world. And RIGHT at the point I’d made a few- 3 of my friends- curious enough to sign up the announcement that would close came in. I tried getting them beside me while I was signed in before There went to sleep but we could never coordinate.

        The irony?

        I now have a Macbook.

        They are going to sign into There2 before I do!


        And I am going to find out just exactly how patient I really am… Will I use my assedout old laptop that will keep zoning out on me because the wiring is all messed up to get into There2 or will I be able to wait to sign back up when There2 is ready for us Macs…

        I think I will just deal with bad wiring and see those friends on The Other Side… ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. #100 by Pilot_51 on 2011.06.27 - 1:40 pm

    I completely understand the potential delay, almost expected it even.

    Less than 2 months after There closed, I started developing for Android, currently I have 6 different apps in the Market (not to plug, just to show I’m serious about it). I quickly learned that it is very hard not to underestimate how long it would take to get a release out when there is a lot of work still to be done with the potential for surprises. I’m sure it’s much harder for a new developer like myself with little experience and a weak development schedule. How I know it’s not just my problem is that I constantly see release estimates for software in development getting pushed back rather than on time and definitely not pulled forward (think Duke Nukem Forever), it also seems to be human nature to underestimate timelines for projects of any kind. The irresistible urge to actually give estimates is not only because people want to know it, but because developers are also anxious to release. I’m tempted to call it the “Can’t Wait Effect” or something.

    Keep up the great work! I’m excited for There 2 as is everyone else, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s done when it’s done and delays indicate that it’ll be done right. Anyone who puts up a fuss has probably never done anything time-consuming for someone who wanted to know how long it would take.

    • #102 by Seg_Vio on 2011.06.27 - 1:58 pm

      From what I understand is that MW will only accept payment in the form of 7/11 Big Gulps (flavors vary day to day). They must still have unmelted ice to be recieved as a valid payment.

    • #103 by Seg_Vio on 2011.06.27 - 2:18 pm

      If you wish to go through my soverign monetary transfer policy, please send me 1 stack of buttered blueberry pancakes which I will convert via my private currency exchange to Michael Wilsons Big Gulp liquid currency.

      No refunds!

      • #104 by HighFlier on 2011.06.27 - 4:26 pm

        You caused me to choke on my home made test gulpie here after reading this. – I’m experimenting here on Big Gulps to see if i can make counterfeits. No fear, I’m using low cal sugar substitutes. One question though what flavors will he accept? How about bronze, silver, gold, or platinum flavors? At least we’ll get something for the 10 bucks and our teeth will be pretty at sign up. ๐Ÿ˜€ Maybe I’ll just take a bath in my Gulpie before I hand it over. So the Big Gulps is his idea to get the new shiny avatars he’s referring to. The truth is leaking out finally.

        OK, This is my last Slurp for today. Go Blue Gulpie’s

      10 bucks is like going to the movies. Correction, it’s cheaper! Movie tickets are $11 and you only get 2 hrs of entertainment. However, if you decide to subscribe to There2 you will get an entire month of entertainment!

      If you’re talking about being in a tight situation and have a little budget, I would suggest to invest $10 of your entertainment money towards There2. ๐Ÿ™‚ WALA Problem solved. Now you can play and save money! (Assuming you’re of age, of course)

Or maybe you can come up with another way like keeping a jar by the washer and dryer for all of the change collected after each load. There has got to be a way! Think about it, ya never know what you’ll come up with. Good luck!

      From one of his previous blog posts in case you missed it which can be found here.

      1. Go through the sign-up process.
      2. Pay the subscription fee.
      3. Claim your old avatar name(s)
      4. Log into ThereIm.
      5. Request restoration of your inventory. It should arrive in a day or so.

      I take that to mean that I would have a brand new avie with my old name Orielle and that my new avie may no longer have any issues such as immediately ending kisses when I initiate kisses first.

      One more teeeeny little thing. You have to be over 18 to play. You know that, right?

      Of course he’s planning on “making a buck or two on us” … That’s why he’s in business, he’d be some sort of idiot if he didn’t. If you don’t like the idea of helping him to make money and having the ability to use “There” then suggest you don’t bother signing up and find something else to do, which by the way will still involve someone making a buck or two!!

      He basically said, he was paying half for your entertainment, while you paid such a little fee. He made no money off of us, infact he was dumping more money into then we were. Take a look at the ‘There operating Costs’ page. Maybe you’ll be able to understand a little more.
      If you can’t afford to pay with a credit card or whatever, how are you planning on buying the Ultimate Game card?
      If you don’t have a credit card, it’s obvious you’re not 18, and have no business here anyway.

        On my previous comment, MW is an entrepreneur. He’s trading entertainment) for our buck. basically, it’s just like paying for cable, or internet.

      • #176 by jimony on 2011.06.27 - 9:52 am

        While looking at the There Operating Costs page that shows what it will cost to run THere, remember that is now. The new technology makes it much cheaper than it used to be.

      • #177 by jimony on 2011.06.27 - 1:18 pm

        In case you’re wondering, since you said “if” you don’t make it by the end of June you will refund; my bank uses pre-cog depositors.

    • #178 by Aradriel on 2011.06.27 - 10:33 am

      lol, made off with our money… that’s a good one… so I must have been hallucinating when I got all of those refund checks for the hundreds of dollars I spent in those last few months, that he was under NO obligation to give….

      Keep up the good work MW & dev team at! We’re all (well, most of us >.>) cheering you on!

      It’s time to check N/A’s IP against other users on this blog.
      He probably is:
      Someone around 15 years old.
      Someone who probably drinks 3 Big Gulps a day.
      Someone who thinks freeloading is an acceptable practice.
      Someone who obviously thinks an education is a waste of time.
      Someone who is scrambling, right now, looking up “elaborate” on Free Online Dictionary.
      Someone who will use Mommies CC to get on There, when it opens.
      I’m thinking it will be very useful to have that IP handy when you open.

      PS.. We have been waiting over 15 months to go back to There .. Personally I would rather wait a few more days rather than have you guys rush into something and not get it right the first time.
      Thanks for the effort and long hours you and the crew have been putting in.

  66. #181 by mimi06 on 2011.06.27 - 7:39 am

    I know I should be more serious at my age..and I will.. I can’t thank you MW and staff for all of this.. you have made so many people smile more then they have in a long time. Hope this makes your heart happy after all the hard work your doing. because it sure has ours. and being who we are we promise to help make this work as much as we possibly can. My daughter has M.S. There for her was so theraputic for her mind, made hours go by like days. We can’t wait for this again, to be able to spend time playing in a world that we loved. Thank You.. (end of mushy stuffs) rofl

    Wait how did people pay for june??? Hell I`ll pay ahead of time. What The Frick Man!!!

      Oh thats it!!!!!! I know someone whos getting paintballed forsure him and his no shooting mut lol

  68. #184 by Wendy Stoll (Wendy50s) on 2011.06.27 - 7:27 am

    MW cracks me up. Hey, I appreciate how hard you all are working! I think many of us would have been happy to go ahead and pay anyway! ‘tu

  69. #185 by mimi06 on 2011.06.27 - 7:24 am

    one more thing then I’ll go.. (being as this isnt a forum) I have visions of BIG BANG BOOM! fireworks ready to go off 4th of July! in THERE or THERE IM..(yaya dreaming)

      Quick! Someone get this guy a Flaming Banana!

  71. #188 by Trent Simino on 2011.06.27 - 7:22 am

    where do you pay for it at

  72. #189 by Shivaki on 2011.06.27 - 7:20 am

    I would think that MW was trying to show his humor. Theres no website set up to take payments yet and so theres no way someone could have paid for this month already.

    Thanks for the update.

  73. #190 by WikkedBliss on 2011.06.27 - 7:09 am

    Do what you can, it will be ready when it’s ready and I will not require a refund LOL.. Luckily it’s sunny and gorgeous here in Canada and a good week or two to lounge on the beach on Lake Ontario and get a little sun before I am addicted to There and inside the rest of the summer * grinz* Ty for those of you who worked all weekend! XO

  74. #191 by mimi06 on 2011.06.27 - 7:08 am

    As I have been messaged………OMG I fell for that.. goes back to my CORNER…………………….>>>>>> pssstt, hey you know who are you, good thing you keep tabs on me rofl.. hugz

      . . . zooms up to Mimi and whispers “PSST, yeah, I know what you mean, don’t you just hate those spellchecking perfectionists??!! . . .zooms away yelling “MIMI MIMI MIMI” . . . . . . . . . . .

    Rome was not built in a day……. I mean There….:D

  76. #194 by IceAnge1 on 2011.06.27 - 6:54 am

    pay for june? as in there’s a page to subscribe already? o.o

    • #195 by majandithere on 2011.06.27 - 7:03 am

      just wanted to ask the same question … any news on that?

      • #196 by IceAnge1 on 2011.06.27 - 7:14 am

        uhmm, i think he was joking about that… it seems as though nobody knows of it so i would imagine =]

  77. #197 by HighFlier on 2011.06.27 - 6:51 am

    You missed your first deadline already? Your Fired!

    jking ‘YAY

    • #198 by EagleRocket on 2011.06.27 - 1:43 pm


  78. #199 by ant1977 on 2011.06.27 - 6:50 am

    I guess since no one was able to pay for the month of June it’s safe to say no lies about the refund. And by no means, given the opportunity to pay, would I have even expected a refund.

    • #200 by XNecroscopeX on 2011.06.27 - 4:50 pm

      I’m assuming when There IM opens because you have to register in order to gain access to your old contacts.

    • #201 by Jordan on 2011.06.27 - 7:09 pm

      But sad part is. I never had an account (Well I DID but the computers I had at the time couldn’t play There.)

  79. #202 by Jordan on 2011.06.27 - 6:43 am

    I would have payed for June and not expect a refund.
    By the way Mr. Wilson.
    When will you open registration? When ThereIM opens or when the world opens?

  80. #203 by INVU34 on 2011.06.27 - 6:42 am

    I want to know how people are already paying for thereIM…I must have missed something some where!!!

    • #204 by JasonMK on 2011.06.27 - 9:56 am

      I was just thinking the same thing. I didn’t think There2 was accepting cash yet…

      • #205 by Stephen Mol on 2011.06.27 - 1:45 pm

        I was looking too. The there site hasn’t been updated other than the fact that it says it’s reopening.

  81. #206 by Studly from There on 2011.06.27 - 6:37 am

    Everyone, you can think of June as your free trial…>LOL

    • #207 by IceAnge1 on 2011.06.27 - 7:04 am

      Ohhh, i see… he made a joke..?

    • #208 by SaltySilver on 2011.06.27 - 10:12 am

      rofl ๐Ÿ˜€

  82. #209 by Eatings,Sputters,Pneumonia,ect. on 2011.06.27 - 6:34 am

    How do we go about making our monthly deposits already?

  83. #210 by mimi06 on 2011.06.27 - 6:30 am

    Just a lil bump in the road.. we’re excited but we also know this takes time. Just curious tho. You say if you might not make it, folks get a refund, which confuses me (thats normal) but, how is it anyone paid if nothing has happened to promt a payment? or did I miss something? I would of paid as well, and not asked for a refund for june.. geez………

    • #211 by Dean Caballero ( Bumpin42 ) on 2011.06.27 - 7:43 am

      Mimi did i hear Bump lmao : ))

    • #212 by Kevin J on 2011.07.06 - 10:04 am

      How do you get the ThereIM if you had deleated

  84. #213 by darkrounge on 2011.06.27 - 6:28 am

    Awww, it best be done by the end of this week.
    Everyone is looking forward to seeing it again ๐Ÿ˜›

  85. #214 by There Lover on 2011.06.27 - 6:28 am

    Like Francis_7 said.. we waited this long.. I think we can last a bit longer. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Also thanks for keeping nus updated! ๐Ÿ™‚

  86. #215 by martin71 on 2011.06.27 - 6:21 am

  87. #216 by AnOldDeveloper on 2011.06.27 - 6:14 am

    That’s nice of people to work throughout the weekend to get There IM up and running.
    Funneh about the refund . . .

  88. #217 by EvenStupider on 2011.06.27 - 6:12 am

    People have paid for june?

    • #218 by Eatings,Sputters,Pneumonia,ect. on 2011.06.27 - 9:43 am

      That’s what I’m saying… I’d put my deposit..

    • #219 by Striker194 on 2011.06.27 - 12:23 pm

      lol I never knew there was an option to pay already..

      • #220 by Eatings, Sputters, Pneumonia, ect. on 2011.06.27 - 2:18 pm

        There isn’t. It was a joke.

      • #221 by Draco Tora on 2011.06.28 - 5:58 am

        don’t think they can expect payment till they can give something more concreate,,, like actually having there IM going. Not going to give them a hard time about not makeing the end of June dead line (if they don’t) that just the nature of the beast,,,, it happens but they shouldn’t charge till they have something

  89. #222 by Dusky Rose on 2011.06.27 - 6:10 am

    Just give me a whistle when it’s done. Or post to FaceBook. Just whistle while you work …………………………………

  90. #223 by Linda Keen on 2011.06.27 - 6:09 am

    I’ll pay for June and not expect a refund.

  91. #224 by Jonathan on 2011.06.27 - 6:05 am

    Fingers crossed ‘eh! Although having said that, i’m more excited about the world opening! ๐Ÿ™‚

  92. #225 by Francis_7 on 2011.06.27 - 6:03 am

    We have waited almost a year and a half. I bet we can all hang on a while longer! Thank you for the update and keep up the great work!

    • #226 by XNecroscopeX on 2011.06.27 - 4:46 pm

      That’s the spirit! I can’t wait. Are you still thinking about making There Motion Pictures?

  93. #227 by Claire on 2011.06.27 - 6:02 am


    • #228 by Sara on 2011.06.28 - 3:35 pm

      Are you seriously calling them liars? You must be a child. They are working hard trying to accomplish this. It isn’t easy with one engineer. If they more to help doing it they would be up and running already. But I am sure you’re just faking being upset. I am not joining until they have all of There rolled out myself. I am not wasting my time with There IM. Maybe for 5 bucks I would pay for that. It is only worth 10 bucks with the complete world in my opinion. But to each their own. I will be patient

    • #229 by Summers on 2011.06.28 - 4:22 pm

      lol claire,
      u mad bro?

  94. #230 by Christian on 2011.06.27 - 5:54 am

    Crossing fingers it’ll make it before july ๐Ÿ˜‰
