Hello everyone, I would simply like to announce that I am officially resigning from the TW Blog Team. Read the rest of this entry →
I want to apologize for how long this took to be published. The raw text was 83 pages when I copied it out of Skype. I edited it down to 16 pages in Word before formatting it for this blog. And then my world blew up in RL. I got the chance to work on an independent gangster movie called SRQ State of Mind and a couple other film projects. So here we are, two months later. I still want to publish this, because the people involved had some good things to say and they gave up their time to talk to me. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed leading the discussion with the top dukes of your world.
New Worlds Starting:
We will soon be starting two new worlds this month.
World 58 will start on Wednesday, August 10th, at around 17:00 and will be a standard world, with farming/hauls enabled.
A 3-month High Performance world will start on Saturday, August 13th, at around 20:00 and will be a no hauls world. You will start with a half-built village (around 2k points, level 25 of each resource type).
If you have any feedback or questions please click here for the discussion thread.
Confetti! Streamers! Kazoos!
I am pleased to announce NML0089 and NoelyDeezNutz have both been promoted to Head Blogger and will join Samulis and Klouwe in helping me maintain the blog and mentor bloggers. Both are very deserving and I am happy they have agreed to take this promotion and increase their impact on the blog.
NML0089 was one of the original bloggers when we first started TW Blog. Unfortunately, real life required him to resign some time ago. But then last fall he contacted me again and announced he was able to return to TW and specifically wanted to return to blogging. I was thrilled and gladly hired him back. Since then he has been extremely active in not only blogging for his own world but also in helping other bloggers with ideas, contests and advice. It’s good to have him back.
NoelyDeezNutz joined the staff in January, but even in this short time he has had a major impact. He consistently produces good blogs for his world and also has been key in some new additions to the blog itself, most notably the addition of the FaceBook “Like” button for all posts. He also started a FB page for w13 that is connected to his blog; that is our first FB page for the blog I am aware of and hopefully not our last.
Please join me in congratulating these two on their promotions. Just don’t praise them too much or it will go to their heads!
