In order to try to make a contribution to the improvement of Sleuth Noir, I have decided to give away 5 "prices" of 1 month gift subscription to 5 different sleuths that already have or during the next period will come with the best suggestion(s) to improve Sleuth Noir on one or more following areas:
* Doing something to improve the game-speed
* Getting more people to subscribe to Sleuth Noir
* Making Sleuth Noir more fun to play
* Something else the judges approve of

So, it's time to open that creative vein of yours, and come with suggestions and post them on this board. It's no part in the judging whether the suggestion will be implemented into Sleuth Noir or not, as this is for Sleuth Admin to decide. In my eyes, it doesn't even have to be your idea originally.

Even though I haven't asked them, I had hoped that a jury of
Jojo, Stooby, Roamie, Secret Squirrel and Lady Jas would voulenteer to search out the most worthy. I would be happy if you made a reply to this posting saying whether you accept or not. Please decide among those of you accepting the task how you would like to organize. You all seem to be active on the boards, and I do trust that you will be fair. You are also free to "adjust" the important topics, but I have put down my suggestions, and what I would like to encourage. Also, decide for how long the "competition" will last. Preferably less than a month.

I myself don't have the capacity to search out and find the good recievers of a gift subscription, that's the reason why I humbly ask those mentioned to join forces and help me with the task. I would guess (but may be wrong) that the "recivers" are less than 100 days old, as the older might already have long lasting subscriptions, and one additional month would be as a drop in the sea. Also, I think that the jury themself cannot be among the "recivers".

I hope that when the jury have made their decicion, they will post it here and send me a PM with the name of the selected winners

Oh, and custom avatars. It is extremely annoying seeing the many people with the same avatar.

Eikichi, don't take this as a flame, but if you had read through the boards you would know we do have custom avatars, it's a matter of sending them in. Of course you have to be subscribed to do that option. Read through some of the boards, they are your friends! :-)

It seems unfair that if you're doing a favor for a townie then they clam up on you when you ask them questions! Maybe there should be some kind of adjustment so that they don't clam up or even just let them answer one more question than they usually do... it just makes more sense, IMHO.

Diane I've asked many times why a townie doesn't act as an extra contact when doing a favour for them but Admin aren't happy with that suggestion.

I've also asked why when a tonwie is your contact you can't just say to them "Who does this footprint belong to?" If you have the person in your list they ought to say "Fred Bassett", if not they ought to say "Sorry no-on you've met matches". It makes mroe sense when you cna sk your contact infinite questions anyway.

Again it was a no from Admin.

I should also add that for me if I were to judge 2 of the best ideas already have bene suggested. One by Sir Butcher De Vie with his Dossier idea on thread:

And one by Hannah Blue with her Ocean Liner idea found at:

I think it's unfair that you have to be subscribed in order to have a custom avatar..

Eikichi, if you think its unfair then that tells me you like the game. If you like something......go for it. You've looked at the sub rates, you know its not expensive. Try 1 month.

And witha sidekick coupon the 1 month would be even cheaper!

We've heard that arguement before, Eikichi, by lots and lots and LOTS of people. Got anything more substantive to add? :-/

Stooby: if you judges agree on those you suggest to be "winners", I am more than willing to send them both a month gift subscription.

I notice though that Sir Butcher De Vie are subscribed and inactive, so it might be a question if he would be inspired by a gift subscription? It would be sad if he recieved a 1 month gift subscription, and did not log on during that period so that he could have joy of at least some additional cases...

Hannah Blue though seem to be unsubscribed but active, and logged in last time in the end of December 2007, so if someone were able to get contact with her, she might become a "return'er" ;-)

But, I have left to you judges in cooperation to find those you think are the "right" ones. Whoever 5 you decide, I have promised to send a 1 month gift subscription. Now that all the 5 judges seem to have accepted, I would be happy if you decided on the length of the period the "contest" would run, and also how you organize your cooperation.
