I know we always show Ben and Sunny the greatest of appreciation when something new is implemented. However, I just wanted to send some hail to them, as a seperate message from a new addition.
To me it is amazing, how a simple bored afternoon, this game has started. I never thought, I actually arrived in a community. I pretty much stuck to myself. The message boards scared me, as they seem to be dominated by people that to me seemed to know everybody. Kitten, fat chuck, Nagasong, DaRu and others.
Most days I didn't even look at the message board. Until I started hanging out with the people in my agency, and then strangers started to message me.
Now that I have stopped playing the game. I could not leave sleuth, as it is no longer about the game for me.
I had a lot of entertainment here. Hanging out with a group of great people. Meeting more and more people.
Particularly my friendship with detective Smart Ass, whom I met in real life in March. I view as something that will last for a very long time to come. She is truly a fantastic woman. Whom invited me in to her home, and life. There is always some apprehension meeting people from the internet. But her warm heart, not only invited me in to her home, but trusted me with sharing the lives of her husband and her kids. Considering the number of scary people around on the internet. To me this is no small thing.
Sleuth has become not a place to play a game. But kind of like the local pub around the corner. Where I go, take my coat off....and everybody knows your name (enter the rest of the cheers theme.) The pub regulars always there to entertain me. Have a few beers with.
Without getting too mushy. I enjoy the company of this community immensely.
Sunny and Ben....thank you!
Uhg I can attest to this
I have made so many new friends on here.....while my outside social life may be a bit lacking, its saved me money and got me to meet some great new ppl, who can complain?
