Time for an update:
. Yes, we did up the login limit. I’m not going to say to what, but we did up it.
. Yes, there is a special group which always gets to log in. We call ourselves the “Fab Four” and it’s Bruce, SamSyn, Mackie and I.
. No, if you’re under 18, you can’t play.
. Yes, when we catch you, we’ll ban you, forever. Seriously. We may even implement the “drop all possessions on the floor” just so people can come pick through them.
. Yes, if you think someone’s under 18, you can report them, and we’ll ask for more documentation.
. Yes, if you report people as being under 18 for fun, or as a way of griefing, you’ll get banned. Forever.
. Yes, SamSyn has a fix for the “exploding avatars” bug. We’ll deploy a patch hopefully tonight to fix that.
. No, we don’t have a complete fix for the “Black Bar Flash Issue”, but we’re closing in on it.
. No, we don’t have a complete fix for “Flash windows which don’t appear sometimes”, yet. Turns out it’s been broken for a while (as flash was updated), but we never knew it because we weren’t open. I can’t WAIT to see what it’s done to the Mac client. Ugh.
. Yes, we’re getting closer to opening for everyone. We’re working on the billing code now. Yes, I’m sure there are some people who would say “You should have done that first”, but my view is we needed to make sure the thing would work first before we focussed on taking your money. But don’t worry, we will take it :-).
. No, you shouldn’t ask other people for an account, nor should you give someone else your account. Seriously, you don’t know what they’d do with it, or, conversely, what baggage might be associated with the account you were “Given”. Oh yes, and we’ll also ban you.
. Yes, I’ve said Ban too many times here, but we do have a few common sense rules, and we have to enforce them in a fairly black and white matter. We don’t have enough people to handle the “grey areas”.
. Yes, we finally overloaded an iHost this week, mostly because some person decided to drop a few hundred buggies. The good news was that it was handled “gracefully” and auto repo was able to pick them all up,
install the car bombs, and put them back in the perpetrator’s inventory.
That’s all for now. We’re getting close. More importantly, we’re getting better and closer.
P.S. There’s a very interesting story behind that sign. Who knows it?
