Request To Jonathan:New Player Forum Post Goal Thing (in General)

Have you ever been in a [Disco], [Nightclub], [Place of Ill Repute] (Delete as Appropriate), and someone comes up to you and starts chatting, and before you know it you're having a great conversation, and life is good, and the banter is flowing, and you're having a marvellous time, and you're getting on really well, and then they say: "Well actually, I'm only talking to you cos my friends bet me a pint"


Any chance of not telling new players that this is a money-making goal?
Just suggest that they mosey on in and introduce themselves - sure give them a reward after, but just so that my misanthrope gland doesn't start to kick in, could you keep the $$ hush-hush?


ermm, and this would be good for the community too, as only those that really wanted to join in would post

So - how about it?

Hi. I'm The Hatchetman. Where's my $500?

I'm sorry, ViC. But it wasn't just for the pint, I swear! ;)

Ah Bast - why does my heart skip a beat?
(my other one's doing fine though)

Vicious Cat May 15 2007 9:05 PM EDT

And Riddle - send me cb$ 1000000 and I'll convert it into $$$REAL CASH DOLLARS!!!$$$

In case my sarcastic reply didn't convey the message, I second this :)

QBOddBird May 20 2007 10:15 AM EDT

I third it!

I'd minus one it...

I vote yes!... It IS kinda annoying seeing every new player "Wheres my cash?" ... "My Post for cash" ... and crap...

Ha, they are getting less subtle by the minute.

At least they *do* post. This means they are aware of the forum, which is a huge improvement. Don't like New Players? Then just disable it in your settings.
