Don't give your detective a name that starts with "A"
there's only 7 of us logged on and I get Hey you messages from someone who has been playing like, 2 days.
if only I'd named myself Zelda!

*Joins the club*

I used to get this a LOT. Luckily for you Admoor, I am above you on the list, so people should be going for me now ;)

For the first one who would like to have a character that is in top of the list, in order to serve and help the newbies as much as possible (which seem to be the spoken goal for some people here?), send me a PM, and I will for sure hand over the password ;-)
Then, perhaps the others "in the club" might get a break?

Please do not misunderstand, @@@ - or anyone, for that matter. I get PMs from newbies all the time, asking legitimate questions about playing the game, or asking nicely-worded questions for social purposes ('Hi, how are you today?' or 'I really like your avatar!').

What Admoor and Adam, etc. are speaking of are the PMs from someone a few (or zero) days old saying, "Yo, whutup, how old r u? R u a boy or a girl? Where do u live?" And then, of course, there are the WEIRD PMs. But we won't discuss them...

Bottom line, if you need help, or just want to chat (nicely) or make a friend, shoot me a PM and I'll gladly answer it! But if you want to know my age and gender, or what I'm doing Friday night, or what I'm wearing? This isn't the place for it, and I'm not going to respond to it.
