Here is SamSyn’s email to me about this weekend’s results:


I have decided to use this medium to extend a prosperous business hand shake with you and welcome you in the Oil & Gas industry. Having been in this sector of the economy since 1998, I will say without mincing words that I know the terrain 100% and can guarantee our smooth operation in this highly legitimate and money spinning venture.

I just located a dormant crude oil lifting license to a company that is presently out of business. This license gives the owner the mandate to lift and market a total of 60 million barrels of the crude oil for a total period of 5 years thus a sales capacity of 1 million barrels monthly. As the license remains valid for another 3 years, I will use my network as a staff of this petroleum agency to reassign this license to your names or your company name if you have one to enable us share the proceeds 50%-50% basis. .
As a license operator with this National Oil Company, you are entitled to a host commission of $3 per each barrel sold. Since the license has a capacity of One Million barrels for a month, Going by the commission of $3 per barrel, You will be receiving a total amount of Three Million United States Dollars ($3MUSD) at the end of every sales operation each month.

As a license holder, your job is to locate the end buyers of the crude oil and facilitate a buy/sales transaction of the crude oil between the National Oil Company being the seller and the buyers. My job status as a staff of the Company will not allow me to personal own the license so I will, take up the responsibility of locating the buyers and being on the ground to facilitate the sales operations. You will play the role of the license owner and the beneficiary to the sales proceeds which will be shared between us at 50:50 thereafter.

I will need your comments and queries to explain further and also advise us on the process of reacquiring the license to you as the new operator and the mode of operation of this project.

Oh Wait, sorry, wrong email. Try this one:

So I can use ThereIM without VPN and NOT get stuck at ‘loading buddies’

I shall inform the masses to try again. Right now all the recent prod nags appear to be resolved at the same time:

* and bring up nice registration/login pages
* 2D login works
* 3D login works
* Opening a 2D page from inside the client does not redirect through login
* profiles appear OK
* shopping appears OK
* ThereIM can log in
* ThereIM can establish ETP
* ThereIM can load buddies
* ThereIM can load gear (Secret blah blah blah blah)
* ThereIM can create new gear folder and such

What still DOESN’T work

* establishing initial vis connection (I just fixed that in simnet, will check it in for QA. This should also make voice work
so 3D client never shows you in world (unless on VPN)
* when you FORCE a login redirect, it doesn’t always show the login form.

NO, this does not mean you can register, or log in.

And our obligatory screen shot:

P.S. I need to remind everyone that:

  1. We still haven’t gotten ThereIM running perfectly.
  2. When we get ThereIM up, it will be a couple of weeks before we get the world up (at least). Sorry, but a whole world with physics etc, etc is a bit more complex than ThereIM.
  3. There will be 18+. I’ve seen some of the hopefuls on Facebook, and I hate to remind you, but There has to be 18+ now. You’d have to lie to get in, and, if you did, and we find out (which we will), you’d just be banned, with no refunds given.

We’ll keep working on it.

    I’m having issues at the moment,
    I have received some of my clothes and items as such but not as much as I had before closed, plus I am missing all of my furniture pretty much and hair, clothes, shoes, props, and just a real lot of things,
    I was just wondering if I’m going to get my stuff back because I have spent a bit of money getting all those things and I honestly dont want to lose it all. If anyone wants to reply who has read this you can contact me by my email:

    Thanks for your help.

  3. #3 by Anonymous on 2011.08.01 - 7:06 pm

    May I ask why you have to be 18?

    Are we just trying to repeat another economic crash of there?

    Good luck with that :’)

    Adding new GP’s could be a sign of the public release getting closer and closer! I’m soo excited to see There come back. It sure sounds like this SamSyn is an important fellow. Great Work! Can’t wait for the release!

    THIS BLOWS!!!!

    This “small, mangy, incontinent, yippy dog, dressed in clothes” is now at the BACK OF THE MOB!!

    All my meticulous password keeping, on 3×5 index cards, has failed me.

    Thanks for the invite Michael. I’m still one of your biggest fans!

    Hey, hey, hey, hey, I got another question: Could you reset my password LOLOLOL

    Ya, ya, ya, I know,…. OUT OF THE MOB!!

    See you in There

  7. #8 by xSnoopy on 2011.07.21 - 6:59 am


    I decided to put this comment here for obvious reasons.

    I received my invite.

    “Send us an email to ‘’ with your IP address so we can add you to the firewall.”

    I sent an email with my public IP address. I confirmed it several times using IP address locaters on the web.

    “To determine your public IP address, please visit this link and report what you see in the ‘IP Address to locate’ box.”

    There was no link to follow so I used .. I got a “connection timed out” message. Do I need to wait until you add me to the firewall or was the link not added to the email I received?

    Im here, at the end of the new line that I added when you sent me back πŸ™‚

    Welllllll, I LIED, I’m now at the BACK of the MOB. LOL

    Thanks for the invite. I will do my best to find EVERY bug in existance

    Seeing as Duskyrose is imperfect. And seeing as the There IM is also imperfect. Wouldn’t it be a perfect match to let the imperfect Duskyrose use the imperfect There IM imperfectly NOW???? Just saying…..

  12. #15 by Dave on 2011.07.20 - 9:10 am

    Hope that the game will eventually turn 13+ like it used to be. 18+ will just make more people swearing and acting rude. But if that’s you final decision, fine.

Anybody for a round of Rootbeer bubbles? lol

  20. #25 by xMelodyChasex on 2011.07.19 - 3:14 pm

    Seeeee the whining and attitude?? This is why I’m excited about the 18 . Who needs it? Not me. I just want to enjoy myself without being asked to be somebody’s mommy or girlfriend and can I borrow this and can I have T-bucks. Blahhhhhhhhh!!

  21. #26 by Jordan(OMGJordan) on 2011.07.19 - 12:34 pm

    I bet this has been asked frequently, but let’s say I registered by accident a minor, can I just scan my I.d and show it? Or do I have to give out my credit card info or something. Or am I just screwed?

    Hey, Whats the pro’s and con’s of registering to the main website? would it not be easier to let people just register? then when you get ThereIM up and running they can try and login to that once you release a link? :S

  23. #29 by hugsalot on 2011.07.19 - 11:08 am

    This has got to be the craziest thread of comments i’ve ever seen. one guy types a page-long run-on sentience no one can read. Another asshat spouts off F*** Y** about being banned for god knows why. More whining about the tweens that won’t be able to get on. All i wanted to see is SaltySilver video of Samsyn talking, with MW sitting in the background gesturing. I need more Funneh!!

    Dear Mr. Wilson,

    I was a therian when I was a minor, then There closed, then I turned 18. Will i be able to log into there using my old avatar if I turned 18 after there clossed

    • #31 by Karmapup on 2011.07.19 - 10:28 am

      Based on what has been said in this blog, YES, you will absolutely be able to log in with your old account. As long as you are 18 at that time, you have nothing to worry about.

    Looking forward to seeing all my old friends. Hanging out, and making new friends. is such a great social network for people who do not have time to go out or cannot get out for heath reasons, lonely people, shy people, people communicate with people and develop lifelong friendships. It is much more then a game!

    Got to admit I was completely fooled by the first message lol. The list of progress now completed compared to what needs to be fixed still is great, coming along pretty fast I see. Releasing ThereIM will surely calm a few people down from posting “Available Yet??” on the blog πŸ™‚

  36. #48 by Winged on 2011.07.19 - 1:56 am

    Once THERE opens, will you take back the official social network pages like:
    reusing Youtube, start using twitter\facebook\google+?

    and also, is THERE FUNTIMES on the plan to? or too soon to think of that?

    well, last night was fun, was in IM with one of the other GP’s and we played…errr mean hunted for bugs…It was one step closer to being home.

    couple issues that we found.

    1. Only seems that There clothes are the ones that will load, if you put on clothes from another designer it show just white.
    2. ThereIM client went haywired 2 times for me, started flashing and got a couple segment violations, however i don’t know if it was my windows XP that was causing this as
    I rebooted and had no issue.

    Was able to login to the 3d client and everthing showed up, (toolbar and screen saying im teleporting) it didn’t load and gave me error which MW said it would.

    • #57 by The_Specialist on 2011.07.19 - 6:09 am

      as for issue 1 could it be that you dont have the .dds file for that item, that would normally load when you view that item in world?
      which begs the question : would we still load dds’s to our own computers with running in the cloud?

      did you try to use thereIM after going in world and trying on said item?..

      just a thought.

    I am not sure if you actually got a deal with some wannabe oil tycoon or what when I was reading that story. I thought that could be a scam to get involved in an industry a person knows nothing about isn’t such a good idea. Then realized it was some sort of joke and I thought hey I just took some time to read that and I was slowed down. My time is money! And I am watching the Bachelorette what gives? I said to myself oh I know he is getting me back for all the nonsense posts that has slowed him down to #$@% and back by reading. Gotcha!!

    But seriously now. Sounds like lots of bolts have been turned. Things are dialing in and looking pretty good. The worries that this machine will never run in the cloud because of some technical aspect that says sorry this code won’t line up here and will NEVER function in this situation is a fear that is over. Or the fear that it will cost huge amounts of money to get up and running is also a thing of the past. Though there might have been a couple wrenches in the works with the engineer that took more time than expected.

    Thanks for the update Michael! Went to and saw that it’s basically set up. It gives me so much more hope that this will be done in time for my 18th birthday. Decided to go look in my computers photos and found photos of there from the last week. I laughed, then I cried, and now I’m homesick. Can’t wait to go home!

    • #80 by seckoa92 on 2011.07.18 - 8:23 pm

      Dude, if you pay attention to his earlier updates he says that it is a bunch of work to patrol There. If it is 18+, there isn’t all that trouble of protecting the kids and spending endless hours on issues of kids harassing other kids and stuff. That is a lot of time spent towards protecting the younger Thereians and keeping them safe in the PG-13 world. If you don’t want banned you may not want to try and sneak into There. All it takes is getting reported by someone because you told someone your actual age. Make a wise decision on this. Be banned for life in There? Or wait until you’re 18 years old and then join up and be able to play There all you want without any worries…

      Goodluck on your pursuit of fairness…

      Here is a Tip: a large run on sentence that at a quick glance looks like a paragraph will not help your case no matter what you are arguing. But since I did read the all caps part I feel that the 18 and older is rubbish. I also believe that kids 18 and under will still get into there, just like every other 18+ website out there. (no pun intended)

        At some point parents need to take some responsibly. Even if we can’t stop all of them we can make it hard so we stop most of them.

    • #85 by Karmapup on 2011.07.18 - 8:34 pm

      KK – You have my sympathies, really you do, but ultimately, I have always felt that should be 18 and over. My reason: Quite frankly because I am selfish. Before shut down, Every problem I ever had in game, Every Problem involved a minor, so YES, I absolutely agree with The 18+ rule.

      • #86 by kk on 2011.07.18 - 11:20 pm

        thanks, but iam just seeing what people actually feel about the age i agree with 18 and up but i want to know does it really have to be that way or everybody or some people just dont care

      • #87 by jimony on 2011.07.21 - 4:51 am

        After saying this “let me tell u this everybody whos reading this 18 and older thats whats killing me the most”,
        you said this “i agree with 18 and up”.

        Considering only one statement can be the truth it seems that the second statement, along with your claims to be over 18, are the untruths; especially when the level of maturity of your sentence structures are taken into consideration.

    • #88 by Skye on 2011.07.19 - 12:50 am

      Punctuation is your friend. You may also want to experiment with capitalization and occasionally intentionally spelling words out that can normally be shortened for Twitter.

      One thing at a time though. Punctuation first.

    • #89 by jimony on 2011.07.19 - 2:13 am

      Yes, I like the 18 + rule because by the time someone turns 18 they usually know how to write a sentence.

      • #90 by CrypticAsian on 2011.07.19 - 9:37 am

        I’d LOL but uh, my son DOES know how to write a sentence & he’s a Thereian who can’t drive yet in RL, but loves doing so in There…

        But I will say that he sets the example for the other kids, cuz he has yet to complain, rant, or whine about NOT being able to get into There till he’s 18. He said it was cool to drive & paintball, play cards, & make friends (he liked being a helper & loaning stuff), but being in There didn’t help his Tennis game, his Chess club, nor his Football skills. LOL

        He said *over my shoulder like I’m supposed to be some secretary, typing all this*,
        “You slackers [referring to the under 18 crowd] should go get a REAL life first, then when you figure IT out — you can get a virtual one. Peace!”

      • #91 by Michael Wilson on 2011.07.19 - 9:42 am


        I can only how these kids will feel when they’re oh, 30+, and say “Wow, I wish I didn’t have responsibilities like I did when I was a kid, and I could spend the summer. outside, hanging out with friends, meeting people, doing stu…oh, wait, I spent all my time inside whining about not being able to play”.

    • #92 by mimi06 on 2011.07.19 - 2:29 am

      @KK At First I was a bit disappointed to see THERE would be 18plus. I had my entire family with me in world , most days, which included TWO minors. (with written permission). Them being states away from me made it a great past time during long winter months. They were members for a very long time, but still now to date are NOT 18. Thinking back I recall alot of tweens, no I am not knocking our youth, but many times I would see alot of bullying, harrassing and just plain rudeness. Sure mine were not angels, mischef is a normal part of being a younster. After thinking about the years in THERE, I am glad the age status will change. And also after being in another world (pg13) I know that they would be better off playing it (onverse). I also have been a guide in this other world, and trust me its not easy protecting the young from any harm. BUT it takes alot of moderation to assure a safe game to play. So that being said, anyone UNDER 18, may I suggest Onverse. Until you reach the age required to enter THERE. I for one am glad THERE changed its age requirement and will happily send any tween/teen to Onverse. Of course we payed for our young to play THERE, and the avies they leave behind have huge amounts of inventory. It was fun for them while it lasted and this family of 7 has no regrets for being part of THERE as a whole unit. Take a chance and try a log in, hang with your friends, share your “secrets” have a fight.. Pretty sure you and others have told your ages at some point somewhere. Is it worth a bann? You can argue COPPA, but in the end its all about YOUR safety online. Happy with the decision of 18 plus! Try Onverse, I would even meet you there to help you get started πŸ™‚

      • #93 by kk on 2011.07.19 - 10:33 am

        i was born in 1990, so what, who cares about the punctuation i really don’t it’s not the most important thing in the world…

      • #94 by Michael Wilson on 2011.07.19 - 10:36 am

        When you grow up, you may find punctuation important. To wit:


        Dear John:

        I want a man who knows what love is all about. You are generous, kind, thoughtful. People who are not like you admit to being useless and inferior. You have ruined me for other men. I yearn for you. I have no feelings whatsoever when we’re apart. I can be forever happy–will you let me be yours? Gloria


        Dear John:

        I want a man who knows what love is. All about you are generous, kind, thoughtful people, who are not like you. Admit to being useless and inferior. You have ruined me. For other men, I yearn. For you, I have no feelings whatsoever. When we’re apart, I can be forever happy. Will you let me be? Yours, Gloria


      • #95 by kk on 2011.07.19 - 10:35 am

        hey iam only doing this for people who is under 18, iam trying to do a good thing, i don’t really care bout the age and just bc i didn’t put punctuation marks doesn’t mean iam under age

    • #96 by Kattwomann on 2011.07.19 - 4:13 am

      I tried to read that, really I did. But without punctuation all it said was blah blah blah blah blah….

      Seriously, it’s not hard to insert periods and commas. Try it sometime! It’s worth it if only to get people to read what you write and possibly take it seriously.


      • #97 by knighthawk101 on 2011.07.19 - 6:23 am

        Wow, about time somebody said that. Really, they think we don’t know who is underage? with that kind of writing?

    • #98 by DD on 2011.07.19 - 11:53 am

      So you were born in 1990, and it is now 2011, but for some reason your 18 at the same time… odd

      • #99 by ms.bubblegum on 2011.07.19 - 1:50 pm

        ikr but when i was 18 i was born at that same year i ask my parents about it and they think its pretty odd to

    • #100 by Charles Davis on 2011.07.19 - 4:26 pm

      I agree that you should be 18 to be in the there environment.. There are many v worlds out there for 17 and under. Most of there is kid friendly but there our other parts that are not. That is the great thing about you can say what you want when you want, or have a riska paz or party. Or gather in one of the church’s. And its nice to know we will being doing it away from young eye’s and ears. If i wanted to hang out with kids i would hang out with my own. i see your point and respect how you feel. i just don’t think it is wise for youngsters to hang out with strange adults online. it is creepy!!!

    • #101 by Summers on 2011.07.20 - 7:21 am

      Run on sentences hurt. 😦

  54. #102 by CrypticAsian on 2011.07.18 - 7:37 pm

    Dang it, thought There just accrued a couple million $$ so we could all partay ‘heyhey but pffft, false alarm/email. πŸ˜‰

    Uhm, does anyone know (or has it been posted) how There is going to handle the multi-avatar-per-person thing, such as those of us with tons of inventory split up between several avatars (like a hood owner avie & a primary avie). The reason people did this in the first place was (a) reduce lag/load, (b) you couldn’t ignore someone who momentarily annoys you without getting them booted from your hood/lot. I know we’re still a stretch from getting in the world itself, but these questions kinda bring me to my primary question:

    My son has an avie but he won’t be of age to enter the world just yet, so his poor dogs will be starved/without exercise, & his vehicles will turn to rustbuckets. Would it be possible to loot his inventory somehow or have it transferred, since he/his avie won’t be of age to enter the world?

    LOL, and here I thought you were offering us a share in the company profits if we invited 15 friends to join. Good to hear that it was a good week for you all in the way of benchmark accomplishments. On a scale of 1-10 how excited are you about all this progress? Are we more than halfway there yet?

    I have to say Im dissapointed in MW by going over to the oil industry, you’ve made so much progress with there. Dont let Samsyn lure you into the enticing and profitable world which is the oil industy. P.S $4.00/barrel sounds better especially with the market.

    I left There and my old email did get removed and I paid for the lifetime membership. Is there any ability to find that one when you open? You stated earlier I might have to pay to get it back to pay for your time and research and I am prepared for that.

      If it reopens, will I get banned cause i said im 18 when im 17 D:

      • #151 by ant1977 on 2011.07.20 - 9:35 am

        i’m in the exact same situation.
        at the rate it’s going (not that it’s slow, or that i’m complaining), we’ll both probably be eighteen by the time it opens anyways, or shortly after, so we may as well both wait.

      • #153 by Michael Wilson on 2011.07.20 - 1:10 pm
