Guess it is all just too scary.

Nary a user, this expirment proved fruitless. I guess you can now all point & laugh at me for even trying something like this.... And question what evil I was up to with telnet when install you missed out on a game. And for the 'crazy' people thinking I was collecting addresses, I used the VPS to nat into my home. So I have no idea what address you have. Hell here is the userlist as viewed from the admin tool on Synchronet.


so go ahead and laugh it up.

Don't have a Facebook account by Oberon (2.00 / 0) #13 Sun Oct 09, 2011 at 01:05:53 PM EST
but I signed up to Lexulous a while ago, so if it's possible to join a game from outside Facebook, I'm up for that ....

How now, mad spirit?

Unfortunately I'm on antibiotics at the moment, so sustaining interest was gonna be difficult.

Get better first by Orion Blastar (2.00 / 0) #3 Sat Oct 08, 2011 at 09:37:19 AM EST
the Tradewars game is still young. It will take weeks to build up a planet with a quasar cannon, etc.

After a while the Tradewars game will be rebanged to a new one.

SynchroBBS by Orion Blastar (4.00 / 1) #4 Sat Oct 08, 2011 at 09:38:51 AM EST
It works great. I gave my Gmail address for email, Del said he doesn't need a real one. It does not ask for a real name or phone number either.

I am leading in Tradewars but it could be anyone's game.

Weird. by the mariner (4.00 / 4) #7 Sat Oct 08, 2011 at 03:14:56 PM EST
I was sure that between two nearly inactive websites each with a handful of active participants, you could've gotten together at least 150 people for your BBS game.

although it has encouraged at least 2 to join up so go figure.

It ain't about you! by kwsNI (4.00 / 1) #11 Sun Oct 09, 2011 at 11:29:32 AM EST
No offense, but the whole "people think I'm doing this for nefarious purposes" gives way too much credit to yourself if you think people are questioning you.  I think I speak for most everyone here when I say that family, work, kids, social calendars combined with a complete disinterest in doing anything with K5 are far greater motivators to not play a game than any distrust of you personally.

No, it's definitely distrust. by ammoniacal (2.00 / 0) #14 Sun Oct 09, 2011 at 01:11:12 PM EST

Distrust by ublockhead by Orion Blastar (2.00 / 1) #15 Sun Oct 09, 2011 at 03:39:49 PM EST
everyone else follows him. If he don't trust Del ain't nobody going to trust Del.

Do not underestimate the power of apathy combined with that funny thing time does once you hit 35.

Sorry about that by Gedvondur (2.00 / 0) #12 Sun Oct 09, 2011 at 12:20:50 PM EST
I said I'd give it a try and other than creating the initial account, I haven't done it yet.  Been busy at work, it's a busy time right now.
