Change of Pace: Hurray Fame!

Because the Phoenicians are now the 8th Famousest crew on Midnight, with 38 characters, of which something like 25 represent actual people, IE they're not labor alts. OR SPIES, Tawnee! GLARE. As a point of reference, the 7th most Famousest crew on Midnight has 78 characters, and the 9th, 125.

What a great system! I think I'm gonna grab Bo, Lauri, Lao and Rain and we can go blockade a large island by ourselves.

Screw off, it's all because you got the Daggers and the Squids on /fo. All your Phoeys are logging on with secret desires of having their arses grabbed.

Re: Change of Pace: Hurray Fame!

While I'm sure the Phoenicans are very active puzzlers, I suspect this is also a result of Midnight's famous quiet. (Does Poker add to fame?)

Re: Change of Pace: Hurray Fame!

The 'famous quiet' is vastly oversold. In other words, just plain wrong.

Uh. If the Phoeys are doing anything these days, it's not playing poker. (Srsly, the only Phoey who "does" poker regularly and well enough to get that much fame from it (Blacksandpr) hasn't been seen in weeks...)

It's only quiet if the only reason you play is blockades or and lately it's even holding its own there.

Although I think it's still easier to find a drinking game on Viridian ( ;

OH PS Poker does add to fame, but seemingly not much.

Quiet? Have any of you heard our /fo? The only time we are quiet is when we're sleeping or hung over.

Oh! You meant that phallacy* about Midnight being dull. Haha, the only people that say that are the people that need a reason to explain why they stopped playing. Something about not wanting to just come out and say they want a fresh start to clear out all the stupid shit they did as greenies.

*(did i spell that right? I got started typing and my mind strayed to "phallic")

Re: Change of Pace: Hurray Fame!

As a Squid who recently moved into BSB, they do chat alot, great fun to be had, especially teasing Mary about the World Cup, sports hater :-P.

But I was on few nights ago, and there was only one other BSB on, for a whole like 15 min, had to go back to Sage to find people to bug. :-(

Certainly enjoyed the little bit of Bo's WF pillage I got to join, not a bad nav, made me decent money, have to do that again, lol.

Re: Change of Pace: Hurray Fame!

Not to re-rail the thread, but -- I looked through the lists of crew fame, and figured I would find out how many other crews could claim to be "surprisingly famous considering size" like the Phoenicians.

Note: I'm not judging your crew, whoever-you-are-who-is-going-to-reply-angrily-despite-my-note.

Here they are (tabulated July 7, 2006):
 
#3: Party Central, Illustrious, 87 members
#7: ARR, Illustrious, 77 members
#8: The Phoenicians, Illustrious, 36 members
#45: Barnacle for Brains, Eminent, 20 members
#57: The Pillaging Raiders, Eminent, 18 members.

There is also the opposite statistic, being "surprisingly un-famous despite size." That's fun. Here they are:
 
#2: Klingon Warriors, Illustrious, 115 members
#4: Pirata Piraticus, Illustrious, 129 members
#5: Pirates of the Damned, Illustrious, 131 members
#6: Loyalty Haven, Illustrious, 171 members
#32: Stray Foxes, Eminent, 182 members (120 cabin persons...)

[/random data-gathering]

Also, I only found one misspelled crew name in the top list. Good work, captains.

Re: Change of Pace: Hurray Fame!

Ah right -- I should have added that there were:
two "all caps" (I don't count ARR in that list)
and one "all lower-case,"
but no *-*~-*the bestest crew*-~*-* 's.
