Say it ain't so no more "Mysteries Inc."?I noticed that if agency gets evicted the agency's accomplishments also get removed from record. I have never had pleasure of seeing anything but an empty Trophy Room but what happens to their Trophies??Shouldn't there be an auction of the estate property where I could buy those trophies CHEAP!!
On serious note why do the agencies get removed from the High Score or Most Famous Detective Agencies??After all it doesn't say active or still in business. Even though agency 4 what ever reason is gone what agency accomplished still happened, how can you be the best if you know that there could have been another agency that had more TH's found and/or More Fame. How long before nobody remembers that we had an agency named "Mysteries Inc."??

True, and an agency closing is sort of like a detective retiring - they were among us, that won't change, neither will what they did. In both cases it's the end of a career. Yet, we list retired detectives on high scores lists and not evicted agencies.

Yes, the individuals listed earned the right to stay on the lists - but so should agencies, I mean there we're talking about more people involved, so in my opinion, in a way, agencies have more of a right to stay listed than individuals do.

TAFKADD, my pride and joy, retired from doing anything about 4-5 months ago. We didn't disband it, because we need a place to talk once in a while. I always thought it was rather unfair, that we stand there bugging people in the scores list. I rather have people move one spot up automatically, but yet without having to disband the agency over it.

Maybe a retired agencies list, with their spot in highscores when they stopped competing.

TAFKADD, your pride and joy but rent is being paid right. Hypothetical situation =Detective holding a past grudge breaks into agency HQ and having safe cracking ability steals all $$from safe without being noticed and 2 days later eviction and there goes pride and joy like it never existed.TAFKADD had 81858fame and found 26THs and it bugs anyone live with it I have been here about 8months and yeah I see the top 4 hi scores and everyday that goes by the more respect I have for those agencies!!!I have seen others talk the game but when U put up the #'s they have it would be unfair not to see how much and who it was. Dan Marino just elected to hall of fame but since he is retired lets just take away all his records

I don't understand what you mean with safe cracking ability. I personally detest people who steal from agencies, lockers and what not. Stealing the safe is a bit more uncommon. As it requires someone to be promoted to director.

Jstkdn the first agency I started that happened to me for what ever reason person I promoted to Director took all locker items and $$$ fired the clerk so I had no record of who took what or how much. Then they started Blue Moon Detective Agency. BTW you can't use safe cracking ability to steal from an agency safe. When it says hi scores It should include active,non-active,retired,and evicted agencies and their scores.All time hi scores to me have earned and deserve to be remembered plus they give new comers goals to aim for and if they are too much for anyone to match it would seem to show who is best.

Well i am a former director of "Mysteries Inc." Our agency was dismantled for 2 reasons. After that I left, and joined Starsky in which i am enjoying very much!:) But, I have been gone for little over a month, i was in a car accident so it took a while to recover. Then I come back to see no more mysteries inc. That was shocking.I will always love mysteries inc. it was the first agency i experienced being a director. I am glad that you guys care and are concerned enough to post a message. Thanks to everyone!:) See yall later;)

Son's of God! Good to see you. Sorry to hear about your accident.

I also think that once an agency has accomplished something, that should stay accomplished. In order to correctly be moved off of the high score boards someone should have to beat you.

The only other fair option would be a Legendary Agency High score page (for all agencies) and a Current Agency High score page.
