Suggestion(s) for Sleuth improvement

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

Ok, I riverdanced sideways and tied my feet in knots to get this list from the sleuth gods, Protocol i'm told.

Here are the most experienced players meeting these parameters:
* Unsubscribed and not previously subscribed
* No more than 100 days old
* Have logged into Sleuth Noir within last few days

Name Experience Age
------- -------------- -----
Alice Moore 146230 71
Encyclopaedia Browntrout 112990 86
Severa Evans 98060 98
Emily Marie 82450 39
PaniFra 57500 57
vroom 57020 43
Chiqui 41080 75
McClaud 26300 19
Sobasco 18380 85
Ichabod Cranium 13960 38

Not sure if you wish to refer to this list Huglover, but I asked for the next five highest, just in case you did.

I believe it is Emily Marie who does not want to be considered for entry.

Hi Mai :-)
I have no problem sending a gift subscription to any 5 of those you have listed if they themselves say that they would like the subscription, and also join an agency to help support them with their experience and activity.

Looking through the recruitment board, theese agencies seem to be fairly active and have some experienced users as well:
Fatt Kitten
International Inc.
The Untouchables
Decendants of the Tengu

Hopefully at least one more of the bigger agencies will post that they hire someone, as I think it would be best if they joined different agencies.

So, this is what I suggest:
If the directors/officers/hiring responsible in those agencies I have listed, or a similar that are hiring, get one of those you, Mai, have listed to reply on this post telling they would like a one month gift subscription, and would like to join one of the agencies (tell which), I will send a gift subscription to the first for each of the agencies that will reply.

Also, I hope that some more agencies will be recruiting, as there is a need for at least one more recruiting agency, if I are to be able to give away 5 gift subscriptions.

Closers would be glad to help out a new player/subscriber get a taste of agency life.

We are not an agency that is active in treasure hunting, but if roleplaying is your thing or you just want to see what a more laid back agency is like feel free to PM myself or Treschaude for an invite. We typically have one or more spots open to rotate people in and out of the place.

Add the Closers to the list of agencies I would be happy to send a newly gift subscribed sleuth to.
I am not looking for someone that need to be treasure hunting, but someone who are experienced enough to be of support to someone new, and especially are there. So, I had a look at you, and I could see that most of the members of Closers had been logged in today or yesterday.
I think that if you join an agency first time, it would be nice to find someone there. Joining quiet houses, where noone seem to be at home are not so inspiring.
I was hoping that such new subscribers both could be a help to the agencies, and that the agencies could help the new subscribers to find the fun of Sleuth, and thus wanting to continue to subscribe :-)

OK, well the next test then is to get these people to read the boards.

I have spoken to a couple that amazingly never have.

Due to your time limitations Huglover, would you have any objections to me messaging them or would you prefer to do the honours.

Just a quick question, On your original post it said 5 free subs, then on your post of the 11th it sais 4?

It is now 12.02, 22nd , over the pond so am sending my two free subscriptions to:

Alice Moore 146230 71
Encyclopaedia Browntrout 112990 86

I wish them all the very best and hope they continue to be apart of this game as subscribers once this month is up.

Yay! Thanks a lot, Mai. And to Huglover too, for starting this thread. Without you 2, this wouldn't be possible.

I'm Severa Evans, I was third in the list mai capone got from the Admin.
I'd love to try a free subscription, in fact I was thinking of subscribing sooner or later.
I haven't had contacts with any of the agencies Huglover named upthread, but I'd love to join one. I thnik contributing to an agency's success, and thus meeting "colleagues" and make new friends is the best thing about subscribing!
4 cases per day was fine with me, although it would be good to have 12 and I'd love to be able to try scripted mysteries and travel around and everything else.
Also this looks like a very fun community and although I read the boards I've never posted because I felt I needed a subsription for that (most of the discussion is about stuff for very experienced sleuths so I felt shy of contributing anything).

Anyone want me in their agency? ;-)

Let me first be honest. The idea I started with have changed with time. Mostly thanks to Mai Capome who have done a great job.

When I said 5, I meant 5. The reason why I mentioned 4 some time ago, was that I thought that the Hannah something with the ocean liner idea would like the 5. I asked her to send me a message, telling she was interested, but the message never came. So, I guess I can conclude that even though I would be happy to give her a gift subscription because of her idea, she did not take the effort needed (send me a PM) to collect it.

I would be very happy if the directors of agencies that would like to hire, would be the ones sending out the "promotion" messages. May be something like:

- do you want a one month free subscription and join (your agency name) - then read further.
On the message board right now are an option to "win" a one month free subscription. You are among those who qualify.
What you need to do are read the post: (some reference to this post)
Make a reply there saying you are interested, and tell you would like the one month free subscription, and would like to join (your agency name)....

Even though I sometimes write a lot, I am not that good at treating people and making contacts. Maybe also because I want it that way. And, I would like to use most of my energy on the game, rather than hunting people ;-)

When it comes to Severa Evans, I'll send you a gift subscription within half an hour. Also I am very thankful to be able to congratulate you for being the first winner of my "free subscription contest".

Then I hope that all you agencies that I have mentioned and who still are hiring would send her a message or an invite, and most important warmly welcoming her.

My time-limit of the 25. or something I set was mainly because I did not want to have something I had promised last "forever" without anything happening. Right now I am even considering raising the number from 5, if you all let me succeed ;-)

Eye Spy would also be glad to help in any way possible. We have several experienced detectives who enjoy helping newer detectives and we also actively take part in TH's for those who want to try them out for the first time.
