Hello all,

I was just having a conversation with a few Sleuthanians here and it suddenly struck me: Why is it not possible for us to deliver packages in Delhi or collect books from London?

It seems that, 90% of the time, you are required to travel somewhere else (NY, London, Shanghai, Delhi), but you can never deliver the aforementioned things in their respective cities where you accept the job.

Would it be possible to implement something like "there's a strike currently going on at the postal office and we can't make our delivery here in Delhi. Normally, we would do it ourselves, but with the strike, we don't have enough manpower"

Maybe it is already possible and I'm just one exception of many where I don't get book collections in London itself or package deliveries in Delhi itself.

Feel free to voice your opinion about this matter.

Collections and deliveries are designed as a way to indirectly reduce travel costs for those prepared to take the time to do them. I'm not sure what same city collections/deliveries would achieve?

It would ease the travelling costs from time to time - I'm not saying you should constantly get the same city, but it would be nice to, once in a while, have a delivery in the same city you accepted the job from, to save a bit of cash and cases.

...Are you on a package/books Nemmy task, Vulkie?

I was on a package task - it's the third one in a month's time I reckon.

Speaking of nemesis clues, I'm also getting tired of obsolete clues like ". IS not in the 2nd column" while I already had a ". IS in the first column" clue.

But that's part of the fun right? :)

Haha. Well I'm not sure about "fun" but I've got a bit of a phobia about touching anything related to Nemesis ever again.

You are able to get a book to London or a package to Delhi--when you pick them up in a ... different place, shall we say. I've had both missions recently. You just have to be willing to be, errr, adventurous. ;-)

It would be nice to have similar perks in New York, Shanghai or Cairo. Then again you can only bet on horses in Shanghai.

It would be nice to check the horse track race results somewhere else, for example, in the City News.

Yes Vulkie, that would be nice and would add a bit of variety to city news too.

Thank you Ms Helen. I've been meaning to ask that of Yeti as well. I mean, it would be easy for the journalists all over the country to receive the results from the racetracks, right? Or do we need to afford more carrier pigeons? ;)
