I'd like to know which o' the Ringers are most piratey day in day out around the office and who needs to be makin' more effort. Are there any squares that ne'er get into the spirit (or indeed the spirits) ?

And I'll add that I'd also like a general update from the cap'n.

I have a question I'd really like to have answered, however unlikely:

How fun is it as a dev/OM to run around laughing at all the innocent (and guilty) souls who are completely lost when it comes to desiphering the way to get jinxed Idol trophy and other mystery trophies?

Question that I have in mind. Do OMs use their God names on any other places other than PP? I've seen a few names similar around. I believe it's a coincidence. But makes me wonder if you guys use your name on other places.

Probably not. They're assigned the names when they get the job.

It's a coincidence that I smell nice, I'm generally louder than people expect, and I'm often correct when predicting the weather in Europe.

You know those tents they put up when they bug-bomb houses? You could probably do the same thing around your front door. I recommend frequent breaks and lots of fans if you do try painting in a tent.

Nope. Is that an american thing? Either way, sounds like it'd cost money... so out of the question anyways.

Now that I'm nearly done with my Classical Mythology course, here are some random questions:

Did Hephaestus and Aphrodite come into the game at the same time as a coincidence ("I'm gonna be Heph" "I'm gonna be Dite" "zomg, we're married?"), or was there a prearranged marriage going on ("Let's pick our characters!" "you're the married couple" "...as you wish, Cleaver...")?

I think that question was much more complicated to ask than the answer will be.

Speaking of Heph, do we blame his pegleg on Zeus or Hera?

If we could build a temple anywhere on any ocean to host rituals and sacrifices in your name, where would you want to put it? What should be sacrificed there? Would you require a special dance or song or...something? If you do, will there be a practical demonstration?

Mortals say "oh my god". What do gods say?

I seriously doubt they will do that, but let me know if they do, then we're going to want one for the dutch meetup too. But what has this to do with the blog?

Get a page set up on YPPedia for it, perhaps. I don't think it's going to be posted to the blog. :)

Was an exaggeration. I'd say 1,000 a day, for all oceans.

(4000 doesn't mean those same people all day. People log on and off a lot. I'd say about 10,000 different people play every day.)

I still think 1000 new players is quite a big amount - I'm guessing 100-200 -- Maybe even as much as 400 on a good day, but I think that 1000 is a bit exaggerated:)
