What a shame! Botsie Boots was well know in Sleuthville. I didn't expect this at all :-(

Didn't see that one coming..... Botsie's been a good person for Sleuthville, I've even been in her agency for a few months...

Hope she'll be back with her agency asap ^_^

Oops.... This is a surprise. Didn't realize we were behind on rent payment. Tough luck, eh?

I think the ability to loose an agency this easy, without a warning is a way too hard punishment compared with the hard work people put into building it up.

Admin know the email address of the directors, due to their subscription info, and I think that it would be better if both the director gets an in-game warning (which obviously does not work in all cases), as well as a ordinary mail sent to all of the directors of an agency with warning that the rent is due.

In addition to this, I think it would be a proper honor of the hard working directors to give an ability to set an additional warning level, so that they would get warning (both in-game, and through mail) when the safe level is below a chosen level.

Well you guys are right...Boots was evicted for missing 2 days rent and it was due to an unforeseen event.. things happen and getting sick was not on my agenda...what I thought was a real bad cold was actually advanced flu and I was in the hospital for a few days...

Never take things for granted..this lead to me not placing funds in my account...who knew during the night I would get worse...but all is well

BOOTS may be gone but Botsie and Amira are still going strong and have started a new agency named Fearless Investigations...so you guys bring some recruits my way and thank you are for the concern..

Did get a 6 months free subscription out of it from an unknow sender...thanks who ever you are..

Bizarre …an unknown sender of a six months subscription! How can a sender be unknown when his/her name is shown very clearly …unless he/she has expressed the wish to remain unknown?

The issues Androctonus mentions came up recently when I got careless and lost an agency. It wasn't a big deal for me, but it did lead to an email conversation with Ben about the whole process. There are two suggestions on the table: one, that directors receive an email rather than just a Sleuth inbox message when the agency is about to go under, and two, that instead of an agency being evicted and gone for ever, the landlord locks up the building until the back rent is paid. That way the agency and its assets would still be there, but inaccessible to the members until they'd settled their debts. Maybe there could be a limit on the time the directors had to do this - say a couple of months - otherwise there would still be defunct agencies hanging around once their owners were long gone from the game.

I'd be interested to know what others think. Obviously this is all too late for Botsie - I'm glad to hear about the anonymous subscription donor, by the way! - but it might help keep things going and be better for the game in the long run. One point I made to Ben is that one of the ways Sleuth manages to retain players like me is by being flexible about the amount of time and commitment you have to put in. These days I don't have time to be part of a treasure-hunting agency, but I can still keep going and get a lot out of the game as a solo player. Anything that helps us solos stay in touch and stick around is therefore good news in my book!
