The maximum was once reached on May 23 2007, when an OM went crazy on the poe machine and crashed the ocean... Took them 2 hours to reboot the ocean and fix up the mess from memory.

And then to cover their mess, an a dev came up with garbage such as this, and then followed up with this to cover their tracks. (For the non nerd types, you may also wish to refer to this)

Hee! For what it's worth, there's a record of absolutely everything we magic up. For instance, I got teased a little for magicking up one million pieces of eight when I was new just because I wanted to know what it would look like. *grin*



Is this true? AWW. No fun in OMing anymore.

They might give up one of many but the reason they have those islands is to make sure the economy is not failing.

It is? Isn't it just because there has to be a starter island(s) or event island(s) somewhere? I mean, what islands are we talking about here? I think it's pretty rare for Ringers to interfere directly with the functioning of the economy. The only exceptions I can think of on the production oceans in the last few years were that time I inadvertently bougth up all the rum in a certain area, and the frig shops on Malachite's opening. Oh and I think one of the OMs seeded the brigand pool with a mineral whose spawning got accidentally broken. Then that whole Gem Trader incident. :-) Ok more than a few I guess! But still relatively rare, given the size and robustness of the economies as a whole.
