Bryan     What email did you use? It actually sends an email imminently and won't create the account if it can't send.

Neocen     Hello Bryan, I tried to create account on http://virtue.smote.com/ and had "invalid email adress" message. (nice introduction music btw)

Bryan     It's up at smote.com. Probably the best game engine I've ever built.

crector     I'd say that the traffic shows that a lot of the players disagreed with you. In any event, could you not have at elast forewarned the players that changee was coming during the summer instead of springing your tinkering with success as a surprise?

crector     In the past GC had a message board attached to it. Before you made the changes to the game this summer, why didn't you set one up to find just what, if any, changes that the players wanted?

Bryan     Traffic has been up a little the past week or two. Still not very happy with it. I was hoping the invitation system would help with the traffic but it hasn't.
