We see you…

My little script kiddie friends,

Yes, we see you and your little scripts trying to register with There and steal accounts. In fact, you’ve already slipped up at least once.

Keep in mind it’s all the people here you’re impacting. Makena may be pissed at you, and will sic lawyers on you (again), but personally, I’d worry about the karma value of pissing everyone else off (if I were you).

That is all.

      Hey Gabby! Good to see you here! Yeah, the site isnt quite open yet, but it will be. Just keep checking in here, on your FB, and your email. They are supposed to send invites to ppl at least at first while they work out the bugs. They will have it open soon enough.

        Thanks Tinirty! ๐Ÿ™‚ whew, my heart about dropped when I saw this blog after I tried to log in ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ….. I will be patient. I am in the middle of a transition anyways, so I can sooo wait ๐Ÿ™‚ It will be well worth the wait to log back into there ๐Ÿ™‚

    Mr, Wilson,

    If i accidentially tried to log in to there.com, does that mean my name is already banned? thank you for your response. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. #8 by Black_Mamba_619 on 2011.07.22 - 7:03 am

    Mr Wilson, or to any there.com player,

    So I saw that there.com was up and i obviously tried to log in with my name, (missed the last couple of blogs). Anyways, I was wondering when everyone is allowed into there.comim or there.com, how will the process go to retrieve my old password? has anyone found this answer yet. ? Thank you for your response.

    Again I am talking about when eveeryone is allowed in there.com will the system already know my name and password? Thanks for your help! :0

    • #21 by YankeeintheSouth on 2011.07.21 - 1:39 pm

      I use to go to places that were similiar to There and advertise. Example like Chat rooms, I’d copy and paste in random rooms if your tired of the same old chat room liv’in your chat up and Join There.com. Just a thought but there is so many places online to advertise and if alot of us did daily, I bet There could stay open this time… just a thought…

      • #22 by GaryBob on 2011.07.21 - 2:31 pm

        I’d be careful if you do that! Certain virtual worlds (not just HowNowBrownCow, this includes actual/reputable ones too) include stuff in their Terms of Service that allow them to ban you for advertising, particularly for advertising their competition.

        I was advertising the return of There.com late at night in vSide once and a friend warned me that the Mods there have been known to ban for such things and it was my dumb luck that they were all offline at the time ๐Ÿ˜›

    I hope the scripters have quit their attempts already.

    • #43 by Beta2003 on 2011.07.21 - 9:12 am

      Presumably it wouldn’t be an issue for long.

      I pretty much hate the AWS cloud, however the ‘simple’ solution to annoy the scripters is as simple as only allowing the GP+Makena ip addresses to even reach the virtual servers until the testing is done. (packet filtering on the servers themselves is also possible, but then you have to keep those up to date on each machine. From the AWS firewall you can change the rule in one place and even use an API call to reconfigure the rules on the fly).

      Basically, it’s only going to annoy Makena until they decide they wasted enough time on it/discover that the person doesn’t have any new tricks up their sleeve.

      Given the level of engineering we know Makena’s team has pitted against the snot-fingered script-reusers, it’s not even a fair fight. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • #44 by hugsalot on 2011.07.21 - 9:15 am

      If MW and the gang didn’t hype up the reopening for the past few months, and if they could have done in secretly.. The script kiddies wouldn’t be aware. I’m just glad they didn’t succeeded in snagging anyone’s accounts before we could do it ourselves.

      • #45 by MrScrooge on 2011.07.21 - 11:41 am

        True, but why should Makena have to hide(that’s LumpChows tactic) or worry about the kiddies? I think it’s wonderful how open the company has been with us and to me it shows that they do indeed care.

        For the script kiddies, you should watch the news sometime, hackers and crackers aren’t too popular lately and I’m sure some vote-happy politician/prosecutor would love nothing more than to get his face in the paper for taking down some “scary hackers”. Also, don’t let the idea that the government will hire you if you get busted. Those jobs have pretty much been filled up. Besides, only the good hackers get those jobs. If you slipped up like Mr. Wilson said then you obviously suck at what you do. Try something more productive and something that you’re actually good at. I doubt that even a software company would hire you. Try reading a book, instead. My suggestion: Infinite Jest. A really “wow” book and worth the time.

        /end ramble

      • #46 by hugsalot on 2011.07.21 - 5:21 pm

        The media and the government especially are LARGELY ignorant about “hackers” it’s really sad state of affairs when they consider geting someone’s voice mail as “phone hacking.” Most of these “hackers” are more like social vigilantes on the internet. The rest are script kiddies who have no programming skills.

        I’m not trying to sympathise with all hackers but the warped view about them in media is absurd and everyone seems to think everything the media says is accurate.

    • #65 by jimony on 2011.07.21 - 4:10 am

      Don’t worry about it. They have your new email address now, if they do want to invite you in as a tester, but it is doubtfull that they will invite many more.
      When There opens for all, it will be your former avatars name, password and email address that avatar was under that you will need to know. Probably two of the three will be enough to get it re-established. Otherwise, if you don’t have enough information to prove ownership of your former avie, you may have to re-register a new one. Either way, letting them know your new address now will probably not be necessary.

  32. #66 by mushh on 2011.07.20 - 7:39 pm

    I hope There will consider selling the whole package as a game, client, server side, full world (possibly empty but with working fun zones, and other fun stuff) to be run as a stand alone single player game on my windows machine, for when ever There.com is down, for any reason. It would provide some extra income for There, and some insurance for me against future hoverboard withdrawal symptoms.

    Just something to consider after the online world is running smoothly.

    It could also serve as a test bed for user designed products before submitting them to the online world for approval.

    Perhaps every year or so a new snapshot could be sold as an update to the home single player game, just to keep it somewhat current with the online world.

    A multi core CPU would probably be required, but they are common, these days. Maybe each available core could simulate a region, and one for the client.

    Prolly a pipe dream, but gota do something while waiting.

    • #68 by Cellophane Thereian on 2011.07.21 - 7:46 am

      Now mushh, with all due (doo-doo) respect- the entire purpose of There is the community. Unless the God’s and Owners suddenly become interested in a bit of masturabatory vitural greed rather than a general or above general interest in breaking even, running There in the manner the Sims was run is redundant if not obsolete in advance.

      I’d have zero to no fun ‘playing’ There on my computer without the opportunity to run into Papabare, Dreamstalker, and any of the Ginstar players. I am totally NOT criticizing you mushh- but without the people involved There just isn’t There and wouldn’t be There.

      I’ve (barely) tolerated three other virutal worlds since There.com’s closure and if not for the handful to dozen Thereians I had the pleasure of running into or hanging out with in those worlds I might have just dried up into a little avie husk while eeking out money designing and selling land in those worlds.

      On the other hand, if more than the base of There could be replicated (some of the Hoods, a few ‘dummy’ key Thererians bobbing around and free wine and cheese with every purchase- then perhaps I could sit with a dummy game of There on my computer and pretend I was actually in There…

      Man, reading this it sounds so condescending… I really don’t mean to come off that way. I simply mean that part of what made There spectacular was the human factor… Greenie, Jamestar, Francis7, Papabare, Tumbleweed and her crew, the Straykatz club, the people of CCR, The group at Adventure Quest, BarTalk and Wordgrove, all the coolbees at Zona and jeez Louise I can’t list them all… โค

      • #69 by mushh on 2011.07.21 - 12:41 pm

        Plz read more slowly, I did say ‘whenever There.com, is down.’ How much Therian interaction do ya get when There is down? Sure I would miss the interaction, especially racing, but many times I have fun by myself in world launching my hoverboard hi over the many great launching points around Aurora. ‘When There is down,’ second best would be better than nothing.

        I think such a DVD game might also be available for those under 18. If I were unable to get in world, I would love to be able to at least get a hoverboard fix, on a stand alone single player game.

        This DVD game could also serve as a demo of more than 2 minutes for HoverBoats and a hundred other toys that are sold by There. I could practice my track building skils without tying up a real fun zone, using track kits I don’t have, yet in world and maybe using skill ratings, I haven’t yet earned, in world.

        I’m not saying everyone will buy a There DVD, but I think many would, especially if it was packed with toys and permissions, not available to them, yet, in world.

    • #71 by hugsalot on 2011.07.21 - 9:22 am

      The OLIVE engine (is what they call the tech that runs There) has been licensed to other companies to do exactly that. Even since 2002 back in the EARLY closed betas (before my time) they had contracts for training soldiers in Iraq dealing with civilians and teaching out troops how to deal with them with out having to resort to gunfire.

      What i’d LOVE to see (and i do know this has existed in some form) is stand alone self contained “sandbox” There client/server ran on your own PC, disconnected from the internet, where you can work on your own in-game projects. Creating models, textures, clothes, vehicles, etc.. and try them out on your own little sandbox “mini-there” and then upload your work as a developer to introduce them to the users on there.com.

        That’s still not a standalone world. There are still 1+ servers to run the world. Forterra had a ‘cluster in a box’ that had the ‘world’ side of the equation.

        It could run disconnected from the internet, but you need a big machine to just support even One avatar + the world+assets+whatever_other_magic_is_needed

        Dan,
        Hopefully, when you grow up, you will be mature enough to play with the adults.
        NOW, GO TO YOUR ROOM!! Your grounded for a week! No computer, TV or Cell Phone !!
        Don’t you just hate tough love?

      • #89 by DavyRocket on 2011.07.20 - 11:01 pm

        Awwww I guess we should keep in mind the kids are just mad, upset, or just plain pissed off. I can certainly understand why they would be, but hey don’t take it out on Micheal. You kids should be thankful he is even considering reopening There. Think of it this way, and I know it has been said before. IT IS FOR YOUR OWN PROTECTION! You may not understand that, but if you where a female teenager being stalked, harrassed by some whacked out looney adult threatening to get you. You would be thankful MW protected YOU from that happening in There by NOT allowing you in until you are 18.

      • #90 by A happy person on 2011.07.21 - 9:15 am

        Just curious, take your time. But when will you open signups without invite. Not that I want it but while There was gone, I kept it alive to me by talking about and telling people about it, and they weren’t former members, just friends from around town. Just kinda curious, not demanding, but do you, MW, think it will be 2-3 months? Longer because you have to recreate the whole world after opening ThereIM? (And BTW, I checked my puncuation and spelling, so you can’t comment on that! Lol ๐Ÿ™‚ Please respond so I can get back to my friends about that, or tell them to get off their butts and look on the site.

    I know little about such things, but I wonder if this type of activity can fall under “denial of service” if too many server resources are being drained. Isn’t there a new Federal law about that now? Sicking the FBI on them would be sweet revenge!

      You really don’t want to post your email address here.. just WAIT until there.com is open to the public when we can reclaim our old avatars, and then you can update your personal info then. This is just a BLOG, on wordpress. It’s not connected to there.com in anyway. MW could have easily used any other blog service, he just chose this one.

    • #115 by Studly from There on 2011.07.20 - 9:50 am

      first you will need an invite from There or just wait till they get all the bugs ironed out for ThereIM. Then you will need your avatar’s name and password and hopefully the email address that you had on file is still valid. i

      if its not valid, well I don’t know what to tell you.

      Me too; I’m in the same boat. I was at work and my brother said the main page was back up, checked it out, played with the avatar options, and I just hope I didn’t mess with the process either. That wasn’t my intention either, I’m patiently awaiting the good news that There is going to be open again and honestly have no problem waiting either.

      MW and crew are doing fine work and it’s definitely appreciated; I don’t want to be any kind of hindrance (if surfing the main page was).

      Either way, good luck with working out the kinks.

    Not sure if this is the right place to ask, but:

    Do you no-longer pre-load the images for There.com’s website?
    It just seems so un-smooth compared to what it used to be, in the fact that, if you change the user’s clothes/favourite hangout it takes a while for the images to be loaded.

    Just a thought!

      From the progress being made so far, ThereIM is likely to be available in the next couple of weeks I think. After ThereIM is released, according to the updates by Michael so far we can expect the world itself to be available atleast a couple week after that too. A while yet for everything to return but they are working hard.

      Please rephrase the question in a correct sentence structure using periods and/or question marks.

      This is a period ( . ) It goes at the end of a sentence so we know a new sentence follows. Without it there is no way to know you may have gone on to another thought.

      This is a question mark ( ? ) It lets us know when the sentence ends and that it expects an answer.

    How are people even stealing accounts? Another thing, I’m 15 and am definitely not one of the immature “kiddies” who are trying to steal accounts, in fact, I don’t even know how. In regards to that, will there eventually be something that allows at least teen’s to be able to play? I’ve been loyal to there.com for a good 3 years (Yeah I realize I wasn’t of age to be allowed to play in the beginning), and it would really be disappointing to see it reopen, knowing I won’t be able to play until I’m 18. Maybe there could be something like a “Terms of Use and Warning” that informs parents of what they’re kids will be exposed to if they were to play There.com. However, I do think a reasonable age to be able to perform that is at least 14. Thanks everyone and thanks especially to There.com for reopening! [:

    • #170 by VoniLei on 2011.07.19 - 1:15 pm

      Peyton…Google “COPPA laws” and you’ll see why nobody under 18 will be playing this time around.

      • #171 by ms.bubblegum on 2011.07.19 - 1:43 pm

        the coppa law is talking about people who r 13 and under, not 14 and older, people 13 and under, I read the whole thing

      • #172 by Peyton "xoxlinneaxox" on 2011.07.19 - 1:50 pm

        Doesn’t that only apply to kid’s 13 and under? Sorry if I’m mistaken, I kind of just briefly read it.

      • #173 by Skye on 2011.07.20 - 8:45 pm

        No. COPPA applies to everyone under 18. The rules for those under 13 are just stricter.

    • #174 by Beta2003 on 2011.07.19 - 2:16 pm

      Unfortunately Peyton, this is a case where a few bad apples do spoil the underage bunch.

      You see, a minor can’t enter into a legally binding contract (like the TOS) and the parents (I hope) are not the ones causing issues so it can be challenging to deal with.

      Right now the Makena Team has WAY too much on their plate to divert all the effort required to maintain the site in a way consistent with COPA etc.

      As frustrating as it is, the next few steps are likely to be:

      1. More 18+ GP’s
      2. Activating payment processing
      3. Invites to those not in the back of the line
      4. Invites to those in the back of the line
      5. Open registration (Virtual world closed/ThereIM open)
      6. Virtual world opens
      7. Revenue falls in line or exceeds expectation
      8. Some type of trial account / welcome area
      9. Possible solution to handling Age <18

      Granted, Makena may have some tricks up their sleeves and some of those steps might collapse or be very close together/other order.
      Many of us hope that *2 happens quickly so we can support this re-launch with more than our best wishes and praise.

      MW has previously stated that those who told the truth about their age will have some consideration about retaining their original account data (names, items, etc)
      until they reach 18. That's probably the best answer you could expect to receive until more of the items on that list have been achieved.

      My own son is going to have to wait more than 10 years as of right now before he can buggy race again. At least now it's looking much more likely that it will be a There there when he reaches the voting age.

      • #175 by Peyton "xoxlinneaxox" on 2011.07.19 - 2:44 pm

        Thanks so much for the information. I completely understand he immense amount of work Makena has to do in order to bring There.com back up to it’s full potential. Hopefully the tricks you mention Makena has is really true regarding the age, and I realize there are always the handful of delinquents that ruin it for everyone else. As of now, I’ll try to wait until I can ride my buggy and win racing tournaments, in addition to hanging out with some great people.

    Umm… I tried to go on my account that I’ve had since 23rd Feburary 2008 or something like that and can not log on as I’m ‘not invited’, so what happens to the ยฃ80 odd I spent eh?

    I see the <18's are still begging… I have an idea that might satisfy most of them without being a problem for anyone else: Single-player There.

    The idea is that there is an offline client with the entire base world pre-loaded (assuming it's less than a few GB) and some or all of the official items. That way the kids (or banned users, or people who can't pay for whatever reason, or withdrawal sufferers if There ever goes down) can still explore and play around without any risk to anyone. Maybe playing with other people over LAN would be good too. It would also be the ultimate sandbox for designers.

    That is exactly what I wish we had when There closed. The withdrawal was painful and having the ability to explore and play with the dogs and such would've helped mitigate it.

    Something to consider after everything else gets smoothed out.

    Sweet! I hadn’t been on http://www.there.com in a while and didn’t even see the updates and the “Log In” back there (even if it is look but don’t touch, for now). This is getting very excting. I’m curious if the link for “free basic membership” is for those under 18 and includes a special DOS version of there that is nothing more than a DOS prompt with a countdown until their 18th birthday.

    • #210 by mimi06 on 2011.07.19 - 9:55 am

      Yup, that machismo maker is a top notch pro. Here you can see the other There vid and others she’s made.

      I can’t see There.com right now. It has always come and gone on my end but that’s nothing unusual for that page at all. That’s why when people keep saying OMG OMG the page is down!!! what’s going on!!! I laugh because it’s always happened. This is nothing new for that page. Sometimes it’s down for short brief periods of time and then other times a for day or two. There is always someone else who will feed people a different link because they can see it from their ISP even though they don’t realize others still might not see the page. lol It all depends on so many factors. But there is always someone going OMG where is There.com?!!! who panics.

        Can one of you people out there, with all this time to waste causing trouble, go through these forums and make up a FAQ of important information, so us well meaning working types don’t have to drill through pages and pages of “I’m 18”, “No your not” along with disappointing delays caused by mini-hackers???? That really would be helpful.

        I think I’d even send donations to the person who did that. I’m trying to keep my dayjob so I can afford to pay MW handsomely for the priveledge of There once it’s up. It’s hard to do my 8 hours and keep up with all the posts to dig out the important stuff like “Don’t log on yet, even though you’ve trained yourself to do it in your sleep when There was open”.

        It would be so awesome to log on and see –Here’s a link to something constructive people did with their time and passion for There– The movie thing was creative. How bout people post some pictures of things they miss about here? There’s gotta be a million ways to express your creativity, and put out pertinent info, without clogging the lines with trouble and meaningless replies.

        I’m just saying…

    It’s amazing how heavy this wireless keyboard gets after walking for 6 hours. Its the long lasting kind with 6 “D” cells.
    Any chance of you changing your mind and letting me hang out with the mob around the entry doors, up front?
    Oh, one other request. A few of us ask that you turn forcefields off in the waiting area so we can amuse ourselves with Phill41 and some noobs.

      Not sure if everyone is aware but here in the mid US we are in the middle of a major heat wave. If you’ve never experienced a heat wave where there’s no oceans or large body of water near by and no mountains near by, nothing but flat land of burnt corn stalks and wilted bean plants you haven’t experienced a true heat wave. The humidity is just insane like if you step outside you immediately feel suffocated and almost choked. All the grass around here has died or disappeared into oblivion. So there’s nothing else to do but stay inside where it’s cool and hope There comes soon.

        Did you see the little white cheater in vid1? She thinks singing here way in lets her jump the line. I say that’s not fair. Gota watch her trying to skip the line there. Yup, a real sneaky one but his new “Giant Binoculars” caught her in action. So I presume she’ll end up in line sniffing her way up behind you further up the gangway. I do wonder where the mob will land in There? This could be an interesting topic unless they wana just tell us and spoil our boredom. Perhaps you’ll land where you left yourself? Who knows.

        No I havent been in a MidWest heat wave, but I grew up in one every summer in Texas. No trees, few hills, no mountains, any lake was at least 45 min from us and no we didnt go, dirt roads, we had dead burnt grass with sticker patches all in it. Oh, and we Didnt have A/C, so all going inside did was just get you out of the direct sun. Is that close? lololol

    I’ll admit it as me. I tried stealing a coca cola from my local Walmart and did – so I thought I would try There. MW finally took me over his knee. Spanked me and then said I was served.

    I HAVE AN IMPORTANT QUESTION… AGAIN

    Will the pre-existing neighborhoods such as Million-Dollar-View, and Arrowwood still exist? And will the owners still own the lots? And if they do still own the lots, what if they never log in?
    A future Thank You for your future answer (I hope)

    • #268 by Anthony Combest on 2011.07.19 - 5:48 am

      I can’t speak for Million Dollar View but ArrowWood will return when hoods are reintroduced into there.com. The hoods were operated by members generally and they can only be rebuilt if the owning member returns.

      • #269 by qweasdzxc979 on 2011.07.19 - 7:49 am

        thanks but I’m still unclear for one thing:
        If the owner never returns, are all of the buildings/scenery ect. still there? Or is it going to be rebuilt from scratch

      • #270 by Anthony Combest on 2011.07.19 - 8:15 am

        All I know is about ArrowWood, I still have all the layout files backed up and the buildings were all put into Ant1977’s account. There are a couple buildings in ArrowWood in which amxscott owned and OzGate owned one. They will be coming back too from what I understand.

      • #271 by ArrowWood There on 2011.07.19 - 8:22 am

        If the owner doesn’t return, then no, the layouts will most likely have to be reloaded. The only thing that would show up in the hood is if tenants came back and didn’t relinquish their lots. (My guess)

      • #272 by Amxscott on 2011.07.19 - 3:21 pm

        As far as I know, you should see Avalon and San Dimas Islands back up and running plus my buildings in ArrowWood. I have my layout files ready and have figured out which avie has what buildings.

    • #273 by MattDillon2005 on 2011.07.25 - 1:46 pm

      Oh the owner of Million Dollar View AND his partner will be There,don’t you worry,MDV wouldn’t be quite right though without his partners giant 40 meter rainbow pickle and MAUVE TREES.

    • #274 by Tinirty on 2011.07.27 - 5:45 pm

      the hoods will be brought back up if the owner returns to game. Far as I can tell, all the major ones are planning to reopen. Mine wasnt big (Dark Shadows), but I have already had requests to reopen. Unfortunately I think I might have to rebuild from scratch. I had a complete computer crash about two months ago. I do have the layouts saved on external, but since the crash, my puter doesnt want to read external data very well, so I might not be able to upload.

      Im sure MW will give everyone ample time to know the game is back, get their avie up and running, and reclaim their hoods/lots/pazs.

  111. #275 by qweasdzxc979 on 2011.07.19 - 2:45 am

    There’s always going to be some people like this :s

    Yikes! I’m sorry…I just liked the idea of changing clothes. I swear I didn’t do anything but try to create an account ๐Ÿ˜ฆ When it said by invite only I stopped. I din’t MEAN to do a bad thing…

    • #278 by MissViip on 2011.07.20 - 9:32 am

      it’s not about people who try to register , it’s for the SCRIPTERS ( people who try to steal GP’s account to log in to there.com ) .

    So ya got a couple of nawlers hey! Did you feed them some of your special pellet food? It might quiet them down if they can graze on something.

    “but personally, Iโ€™d worry about the karma value of pissing everyone else off (if I were you).”

    You could feed them this to graze on…

      Ya Flier,
      I agree about the karma.
      If it turns out to be who most of think it is, I think he will have a Disaster on his hands as soon as we find out what avie he is using this time.
      The last time someone pissed us off, he spent most of his time trying to find a peaceful place. Its gonna be a lot worse for the hacker.
      If memory serves, the last one is still in prison.
      Whats your best guess? IM this week?

    To think I was too worried to even attempt to login using the regular method when some people have passed that and are now trying to Force their way in. I’m sure there names will always be remembered by MW after ban’s are in place ๐Ÿ˜‰ lol

    DONT BE BANNED BE HEARD AND BE STRONG!!!

  117. #284 by Remote Test on 2011.07.19 - 1:33 am

    To be fair it might not be script kiddies or hackers at all… the page is literally begging people to crate an avatar.

    • #285 by Remote Test on 2011.07.19 - 1:35 am

      I meant Create not crate.

      • #286 by Deleight on 2011.07.19 - 12:46 pm

        Crating an avatar could be fun though.. especially if it’s the avatar of the troublemaker(s)… who wants to help pitch in for the crate shipping to Timbuktu or Siberia? :mrgreen:

      • #287 by Remote Test on 2011.07.19 - 9:50 pm

        @Deleight … well when the website offers one $T100 to create an avatar… would you call the one that created it a troublemaker? If I had my website offering to create accounts I would call it “testers” not “troublemakers”. ๐Ÿ˜€

        Hehe I can’t wait to pop out my old “Crate” seating group on my island sometime soon, looking forward to the return of there.com!

        By the way everyone on google+ do a google search for “there” while logged in and then +1 it! ๐Ÿ˜€

      • #288 by Michael Wilson on 2011.07.20 - 5:48 am

        They’re not using the website. They’re running scripts which are alphabetically trying to reclaim existing avatar names. But thanks for the hint.

      • #289 by Seg_Vio on 2011.07.20 - 1:36 pm

        Can someone on Google+ send me an invite at jmelkenner@gmail.com? Wold appreciate it! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • #290 by Remote Test on 2011.07.20 - 5:18 pm

        @MW No problemo… I keep checking my original there.com setup email daily, hoping, praying that I get a “Wanna Test?”
        Looking forward to there’s return.

      • #291 by Seg_Vio on 2011.07.20 - 6:57 pm

        Thanks for the invite!

    Lawyers & Virtual World? Somehow seems a sad mismatch. Its a shame that such a pleasurable experience gets marred by reality.

    • #293 by IMAKOS on 2011.07.19 - 5:58 pm

      Aloha Bob, nice to see you again…

  119. #294 by Skye on 2011.07.19 - 12:46 am

    This is why I think it’s better to have a separate username and login, although that does have it’s own can of worms.

  120. #295 by Percepti0n on 2011.07.19 - 12:36 am

    Hopefully just browsing to http://www.there.com isn’t included in this warning? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  121. #296 by Joel on 2011.07.19 - 12:27 am

    I completely don’t understand why people don’t have any common sense to just wait for it to be finished…

    I don’t even remember my old username, so I’ll be having a tough time.

  122. #297 by MissViip on 2011.07.18 - 11:58 pm

    When they’ll read this upload i’m sure that they’ll quit doing this useless things , and Mr. Michal Wilson i’am over 18 years old but i didn’t receive any invitation , maybe because i don’t have an account on there.com yet ? because i just saw the first comment in this upload and you said to kk’s that he/she have to turn 18 first that’s why i am asking , and thank you .

    • #298 by kk on 2011.07.19 - 10:03 am

      that what confused me when he said it

    • #299 by jimony on 2011.07.21 - 1:45 pm

      Of the approximately 5000 people reading this blog, only 3 people recieved an invite to help with testing. A few more may be invited for further testing before it opens to public. Why should anyone expect to get an invite simply from stating they are 18 or over?

      When the world is open for business, I assure you, you will not need an invite to register.

  123. #300 by Kevman95 on 2011.07.18 - 11:54 pm

    God dang it Kids, stop ruining the game!

    • #301 by Tom on 2011.07.19 - 5:36 am

      Meow. And for those pricks who are trying to ruin it WHO THE HECK U THINK YOU ARE, JUST CAUSE YOU ARE LOW LIFE SCUMS DOESN’T MEAN YOU SHOULD RUIN THERE.COM IDIOT! IF I SEE U ONE DAY ILL PISS IN YOUR EYES

      and Michael Wilson Don’t give up man ๐Ÿ˜€ your doing a great job. Excuse my language just angry at those immature brats.

  124. #302 by Pilot_51 on 2011.07.18 - 11:46 pm

    Now with a login on the main page, I’m tempted to see what happens when I try logging in, though I want to be extra cautious with the script kiddies floating around. Is it cool if we give in to our temptations or would there be issues with legitimate login attempts (as if illegitimate attempts weren’t bad enough)? If it would be a problem, maybe you can tell us what would happen so curiosity doesn’t kill our dogs. Though, since it’s the main page, I expect if there are any issues it would only slow down progress and nothing to the extent of feeding the dogs crude oil.

  125. #303 by Brett Peake on 2011.07.18 - 10:57 pm

    What do these freaks get out of doing things like this .. What go’s around comes around script kiddies ๐Ÿ™‚

    • #304 by Punkster OfThere on 2011.07.19 - 6:42 pm

      True that! That’s sad to see that someone is trying to mess things up.

  126. #305 by Jonathan on 2011.07.18 - 10:56 pm

    I really don’t get how they think they could benefit from this – surely this is just slowing things down!

    I’ve decided, it’s some fanboys of HowNow brown cow.

  127. #307 by SoledadNegativa on 2011.07.18 - 10:52 pm

    MW,

    Are we supposed to be getting invites; randomly, eventually or exclusively? Just wondering if there was an actual estimated time for everyone to receive it.

    Thanks for the updates

    Sole

    • #308 by xSnoopy on 2011.07.19 - 4:43 am

      Sole,
      Be careful what you ask for or you might end up on a LONG hike to the end of the line LOL
      Were getting there bud! Only a few days until we all get our invites to IM.
      Unfortunately I got a little anxious and was invited by MW to step to the back of the line and form another one.
      See you in There Sole. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • #309 by Soledadnegativa on 2011.07.19 - 9:10 pm

    • #333 by Elizabeth Daniel on 2011.07.23 - 8:48 am

      Hey, My name is Elizabeth. I am from Alabama and my screen name is Shendra_24. Unfortunately, I am well over the age of 18. Like 20 years over that age. I am trying to keep up with the techie type posts and comments, but aside from being able to play in There and read and send email or facebook, I’m computer retarded. So, as soon as I noticed the new there.com homepage, I thought it was open and tried to download client and sign in with my account. So, I hope that wasn’t wrong. Like I said, computer retarded. I had so much fun in there, tho. 2005-2008. Off and on. When I discovered it, I was overwhelmed and excited that it was so fun yet easy to use and so many things for so many different interests. Fun Fun Fun. ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, eventually I made lots of friends. Geomite was my unofficial greeter that first couple of days and we try to sitll keep in touch, him being married to Goldenspice and living in Alaska last i heard. UncleFlip lives here in Birmingham, and we are fast friends in RL. Miss you guys. Miss There. Glad you are bringing it back and are working so hard. I’m sure it will be worth the wait.

      ”Yay

      Lizzy
