I am starting a thread for myself and others to talk about SOM.
I am really getting bored doing the same thing over and over and nothing new added to the game. I do know that several people haven't and are not going to renew their subscriptions. I renewed my subscription, but wonder if I was wrong. I feel like a hamster on one of those wheels that they keep running on. I would like to know if there is going to be anything more added to the game and when can I expect it. What do we as players have to do to get you to put some new things into the game. Not harder cases. Maybe some new treasures, some fun stuff. The atmosphere here has really gotten bad as far as people quitting. After all we are paying. There are game sites that are cheaper than this site and a lot of variety. I beg you to please do something with this game. It could be great. Please

For those of us who just play for THs and so only want to do favour cases how about a "skip beginners" option that would move us up to the next favour without doing the boring inbetween cases?

This would still only give us 3 favour cases per day and relieve the server of having to process the 3 beginner cases we currently do between favours.

No doubt Bilbot will use this as another oportunity to call me a fool and then complain about *me* not reading the CoC!

No he won't, because there is to be no more bickering, right Bilbot? No baiting people into bickering, either, Droid.

I agree with Cinderella, I would like the opition to turn off the music entirely, or at least a volume control. That would be useful! Also, I was thinking, Could we have a chat room? For everyone? I know there is the one in the Showdown lobby, but, not many people use it. It would be nice for there to be a section that is just for the chat room, that everyone could use, on the site. That way everyone could get to know each other better, and meet people outside of their agencies. I know the "GODs" all know each other pretty well by this point, but it would give players like me, who haven't been around for that long, a chance to get to know the "old-timers"! Bilbot had some good ideas there, too! ;D

((An aside, to Droid: We have the least worn hat on Sleuth, me thinks! I like it! ;D lol.))

You can turn the music off Rose, there's a speaker icon in the top right corner. Turning it off permanently as a player option would be great.

I know I can turn it off... and I usually manage to do so before it starts! But, I guess I didn't make myself clear, I want an option to turn it off permanently. Or at least make it 5X quieter. lol. ;D

I LOVE Droid's idea to be able to fast forward through the beginner cases in between favours.....not going to hold out too much hope though!

I think Joseph Chen did make a chatzy room for the purpose of general socialising, link on his agency's page I think, not sure if anyone uses it.

@Rose
I'm too smart to fall into Droid's silly trap. Damned I did :(

@Droid and Terri
Instead of fast forwarding cases, a simpler idea would be to start each day with the favor cases(s)

It wouldn't be that hard to implememt, you'd just turn up at the Post office and pick up your dole giro - 2 clicks for each skipped beginner case. Damn sight quicker for the server since it would not have to keep rebuilding indexes.

Terri, Joseph did make the chat room, but no one ever seems to go there. Last post was 13 days ago. And there is a link on Zen Oracle's web site... I put it there! ;D

Also, I think people would be more willing to go into one that was on the site, rather than off the site. I don't know about other people, but I have a lot of different tabs open when I'm playing Sleuth... the case, my detective to know my items, my standings, the community, and my agency's personal chat room. So, I figure that other people probably do, too, and everyone could just keep a chat room one open that is on sleuth.

Did that make sense? If not, let me know, and I'll try to make it make sense! ;D

Its just taken me 25 minutes to play a RH case.....not because it was difficult, but the site is running TOO SLOW.
Apparently there are only 85 members online at the moment, so why is the site running like sludge???
At this rate its going to take me nearly 6 hours to enable me to get all my favours in for the day, some of us have day jobs and have only the evenings in which to play in.
Can someone somewhere look into this.
And before anyone says...its okay for me.....i dont care, its not fine for me!!!!!

I agree with getting the favor cases first. That will allow alot of people that are busy to play. The other cases can come after.
