Ben our Master

Just thinking: what does Ben do when there are no problems - is he dreaming up new scenarios, improving basic techniques, ie suggestions for improvements on the basic Sleuth (which I haven't noticed being implemented or corrected), or just taking it easy and watching the dosh rolling in :) NOT

elle, i don't see the problem, as it would be up to the individual whether or not to use the service. i think it'd be nice if people wanted to store cases they thought were broken in some open area. it would be another way for players to build cameraderie in a non-competitive way. personally, i do think that there is a solution to every puzzle and having this options would be a good way to learn what you've missed if you are frustrated with a case.

more of a problem for me is that ben must be busy with other projects, which makes sense, but i do wish he had another person on hand to tweak this game a bit. even a little thing, like the holiday treats, have been a huge hit with me because everything is always the same. i think changing or adding even minor elements would be appreciated. i ended my subscription because i found i wasn't coming by enough to warrant paying for the service, but i would come back as a paying member if the game had more of an active life.

hi belami, it sounds fine the way you put it - i was taking a look at the possible downside.

An open area with freedom of choice to store could be a positive addition to the game. I'd hope it would be clear who your case is going to though - just as we know who the Boards Mods are. On that topic Mercy is right in her description of one of the 'joys of being subscribed'...

elle, that too would work. maybe simplest would be if anyone using the service would just forfeit that case and also have the option to submit it anonymously, if they prefer, as an open challenge to all players. that way, people could learn what clue they had missed without any personal involvement at all.

i checked mindbloom and it does not seem like ben has been there either i am really getting worried that something could have happened to him. why would he just disappear from the projects that he created? i hope he is alright and returns. nothing is happening at noir either and there are only 4 players online right now. please come back ben we all really miss you
