We’ll be picking the “guinea pigs” (there is no freaking way we’re calling them the “First 10”, “First 50”, the “Kool Air Corps”, or anything like that) to get into ThereIM today. We’ll use the emails people used in posting comments to this Blog, so if you lied, well, you lied.

SamSyn got Dogs and Paz’s to “remember their old names” this weekend. So, you know, you don’t have to.

P.S. Not saying they will get on today, that we’ll pick them today.

P.S.S. Did I mention that when we do open There, paid There, that everyone will automatically be “Premium” (Voice, Music, etc)?

    LMAO also I tried making a new avatar and logging onto my old account today cuz I thought it opened today. Haha I need to check here before assuming. πŸ˜›

    Michael I think you are being completely reasonable with this now. Before I was worried we would have to pay extra for premium but now I feel loads better. I am assuming the game may be up in 1 – 2 months maybe? I saw the picture of the avatar in the ocean and it looks like it’s almost ready to play! Very excited and thank you for bringing There.com back!

I guess someone else can have my name and stuff, not like i had much….wait i did, crap.

        Yeah Cindy was known by everybody cuz of her favourite color. People who had never met her would refer to her as the girl who wears pink and hangs out in cosmo

    That’s what we all been waiting to hear – Looking forward to it πŸ™‚

  7. #9 by puter_head on 2011.07.14 - 5:54 am

    I have seen some talk of the old beta life time memberships still being honored at opening? I can’t seem to locate any answers about this being true. Being one of the original beta testers who was given a lifetime membership I was just wondering if this was true?

    I think that some of the original bunch might still like to pay for “there” memberships anyway, as a way to show support and help There. I was wondering if you would honor any of those requests to go ahead and pay for the membership and if so… how could those that want to do so accomplish this?

    Thank you for bringing this back to us! Thank you for all of the extremely hard work you all are doing! If there is ANYTHING I/we can do please simply ask! Obviously most of us would love to help be a part of this great venture again as we were before!!

    See you all back in there!!!

    Thank you MW in working hard in bringing back There. Bringing back There is a dream come true for me. Ever since There closed last year, I had tried several avatars sites, even SL 😦 . but nothing compares to There. I cant hardly wait to be with my pets again and building GreenAngel’s SpaceSerenity Community. So, again THANK YOU

    Since THERE went away I haven’t been on my computer like I used to….a good or bad thing? Not sure but I am sooo excited! I remember all of the people hanging around Michael on the very last day before the plug was pulled. I feel that he too shared the sadness as we all BEGGED him not to close. Welcome back Mr. Wislon! Loooking forward into seeing you back in THERE!

  17. #20 by aza on 2011.07.12 - 5:49 am

    I do not think of myself as a guinea pig..funny way of putting someone that came on your game everyday and enjoyed all you tried to do for ungrateful guinea pigs….I do hope they appricate it more this time…I am in no hurry…just wish you much luck because this is you baby…..i have tried most of the virtual reality and did not like them…you did spoil me though sl is good but so full of lag its hardley worth my time…i look forward to being with you again but am in no hurry…..Crystallyn-1

  27. #31 by Andrew Harris on 2011.07.11 - 7:25 pm

    I sat up for about 3 hours thinking about this. We are the free advertising There.com needs.
    The videos on YouTube, links in emails, telling friends, twitter feeds, RSS feeds… everything. We are their main source
    of members. If we all come back for a monthly membership, make sure people know we are There (No pun!), the absolute greatness will be released.

    As Francis7 pointed out – it is Miracle Pictures either birthday. I remember the time he invited everyone to voice their memories. I wasn’t there due to work but I remember it. I looked at that video again and I smiled. I am ready for There to come back. I will make sure my friends know, my clients (who love social games) and such. The money raised for this is as equal to a lan party I go to each month. I will just stop going and put it into There. The placed I always wanted to be.

    Michael, do you want us to advertise the heck out of the game for you? I know funds are limited and that we are the community that creates the game in itself. I wanted to help all that I could.

  28. #32 by and i lost it again. on 2011.07.11 - 7:15 pm

    I will offfer you two pigs and 1 baconizer laser gun.

  29. #33 by Rick Reynolds on 2011.07.11 - 6:52 pm

    Perhaps it was denial on our part, but we were hoping that There was being put to sleep in order to save it, and that Miracle Pictures flick certainly reflects this. Whether prescience or delusion, I love happy endings!

    I am really enjoying seeing the new work from There finally coming together. I purchased an old account way back in the day before I turned 18 but now I am ready to get my own and start up a monthly membership.

    Michael, you have a great team and you have a backing of a community ready to put up a credit card for payment as well as the additions that made There great. I am sure you will have some volunteers that will go ahead and pick up some slack like your Customer Support, Technical Support and Q/A teams did.

    As with most of the other posters, I agree that There was nothing like your competitors. And to this day, I have many people who come into my office asking for a Social Online Community like There. I keep telling them to look at the site: It is reopening.

  55. #59 by Defector on 2011.07.11 - 3:05 pm

    Mr. Wilson, I think you answered this in a previous blog comment but to save myself from looking through hundreds of comments Ill just ask again. I plan on getting an iMac this winter. Did you say the There client works with Macs now?

  56. #60 by Aislinn on 2011.07.11 - 3:02 pm

    Thanks & kudos to you and your team Michael! Judging from all the positive energy here you’ll have a happy reunion on your hands soon.

    Hey, maybe shortly after the full reopening, how about holding a grand reunion party? Maybe on Nene Peak…then a mass leap to Zephyr! ;^>

      Today is Miracle Pictures eighth birthday, having started on this day in 2003! To celebrate here is a very short pilot for a series which we intended to shoot in other virtual worlds, and the concluding very short episode where some very strange looking Thereians return to There.com! It really will be great to be back in There! This pilot was thought up by Rick_Slick, and I must point out that Disky wanted to do a very similar pilot, but more with a Sliders motif. Rick-Slick’s briliant idea won out… as he bribed me with some pizza.

    How does one go from being number 99 post to number 101 post? πŸ™‚ Another question once the hoodlots are available will they be able to maintain their name? Or are you going to make it so we can see what we have in the hood lots we use to have? The reason I am asking is, I have one of Greenie and Canoeman’s mountains and several hood lots were used together to set it up.

      PS. to my post….lol Myrtle my dog needs a bath I’m sure. Would you mind taking care of that before we get to log in? I’m almost positive she’s been out rolling in something stinky….

      • #121 by Michael Wilson on 2011.07.11 - 12:54 pm

        Well, she WAS, and she’s QUITE stinky, but we were afraid she’d get cold, so we locked her up in someone’s house (with some food, water, and toys, of course) for the duration.

      • #122 by Skyefire on 2011.07.11 - 3:20 pm

        I am sure there is an episode of Hoarders here somewhere for A&E if all the dogs were left in the abandoned dwellings.

      • #123 by ant1977 on 2011.07.11 - 3:30 pm

        Will have to give her a bath with a Spring Drink if you still have yours, unless you never had the chance to get one, if that’s the case maybe if I still have mine I could help you out! Stinky doggies are no fun to be around…..

    My dog’s name was Cookie, but I am pretty sure I sold her a long long long time ago.

    • #134 by jimony on 2011.07.11 - 1:11 pm

      I can’t help wonder if you were a girl scout.

      • #135 by Skyefire on 2011.07.11 - 3:40 pm

        No, when I was small we had a black lab named Cookie. It ran away and we got another black lab and her name was Cookie II. They were both named after a dog my dad had as a kid, so technically Cookie was Cookie II and Cookie II was Cookie III and Cookie in There was Cookie IIII… but she answered just fine to Cookie.

      • #136 by jimony on 2011.07.12 - 3:05 am

        Forgive me for saying, but that sounds kookie.

      • #137 by Skyefire on 2011.07.12 - 10:31 am

    • #145 by ltbigdog on 2011.07.11 - 12:08 pm

      In past post he did say it would be atleast $10 a month but could end up being more, will have to wait until stuff gets straightened out.

  119. #146 by Francis_7 on 2011.07.11 - 11:45 am

    Exciting news again! I am very happy about the dog names! Now I can again enjoy Killer Lag! That was the name of my dog… Killer Lag.. so I could say things like “Down Lag, down!” and “Bad Lag, bad!” and such!

    • #147 by Tiger100 on 2011.07.11 - 11:56 am

      “Good lag, good!!”

      • #148 by jimony on 2011.07.11 - 1:09 pm

        “Come Lag!”
        and best yet: “NO! Lag!”

    • #149 by Orielle Thereian on 2011.07.11 - 2:23 pm

      I had named one of my dogs Therebucks. That way whenever someone would ask to borrow therebucks I’d lend them my dog named Therebucks. The first time I did this the guy kept saying it didn’t work, that his balance hadn’t changed and would ask me to try again. After about the third or fourth time of lending him Therebucks, my dog, I gave up and left. Not sure if he ever realized I was lending him a dog. Luckily most people I pulled this prank on had a sense of humor. lol

      • #150 by Francis_7 on 2011.07.11 - 3:30 pm

        LagolandSlumlord had a dog as well. His name was “Slumdog Millionare” : P

    • #158 by jimony on 2011.07.11 - 1:05 pm

      Since you must be at least 18, your dad could just kick you out on your own instead.

  125. #159 by Escape on 2011.07.11 - 11:35 am

    The updates are frequent and thank you for that! I assumed that when ‘paid there’ is opened, we would all be premium, unless you’re thinking about “levels” of premium……’smile

    Quick question Michael,

    If we WERE to be asked to be a tester for the ThereIM client-when would we get the email? I know it would be “today”, but any specific time range for people in different timezones (like me).

  131. #165 by Studly from There on 2011.07.11 - 11:23 am

    I just can’t wait to see buddy, Bryan, Jas, ohhhh I can’t wait much longer, think i will explode.

    As soon as I read “We’ll be picking the β€œguinea pigs”” I just laughed. And I hope my dog remembers his name because I sure don’t.

    And thanks for the update.

    But will my dogs remember my name?
    In dog years, their almost virtually as old as me. πŸ˜›

    Thanks again MW and all for the hard work and dedication. This is indeed good news I just told a friend yesterday, after she had asked about ThereIM , that I was very confidant that early users would be logging in this week.

    This is GREAT News Michael. Wonderful work you and your Team have done thus far!

    I have launched a Social Networking Community since There.com closed. About 650 members strong so far, and a THERE.com Group, Fan Club, and a page peel that links to there.com, so hopefully I can bring a lot of my members with me to join and experience The BEST 3D World on the Planet…..period!

    I can’t wait to get back in there also to revive the Scion Cruisin’ Show & Shine Club.

    Thanks for all you and your Team are doing to have There.com open again.

    Requesting pig status at your convenience and discretion [did you mean to the entire blog, or to this specific post?].

    • #276 by Harrison on 2011.07.11 - 11:04 am

      Wow! That’s great news πŸ™‚ Can’t wait for There to start again. I’m one of those old beta members, hopefully there are still a few of us around!

      • #277 by Dylan / Neo_Ice on 2011.07.11 - 7:51 pm

        Harrison. There are still a few of us around ;–). I’m a beta member with lifetime subscription and so is my sis! I remember signing up way back in 2003 by providing my system specs by a web form on there.com. I signed my sister and I both up and she actually received an invite before me. I just got word of the reopening about 5 days ago.

        Best of luck getting this beast back up and running, Michael.

    • #278 by Soosi on 2011.07.11 - 12:56 pm

      YAY!!! I was born under the sign of the pig – does that help? lololol

      Ok, this is one of those technical pain in the rear kinda questions: We (TMP- The Meeting Place of Uru) have some members who will be unable to pay for There – a few of them are too poor and a couple of them no longer have credit cards – well, they no longer have credit cards because they’re too poor. Will there be some way other members can pay for them? Some sort of gift subscription? I wanted to send an email about it but couldn’t figure out where to send it.
