My friend texted me to tell me about the Glitch news this morning. I've being playing since April last year, and recently my playing had got really heavy again.

I feel so sad for everyone at Tiny Speck that they had to see their baby fail in this way.

I think I'm going to spend every moment I can on there until it's gone.

So half an hour before the announcement, I was hanging out in the UK Glitches, chatting about how I was disappointed that three/four weeks I was unable to get on Glitch there hadn't been any big changes. But hopefully it means they're working on some cool stuff that will be revealed shortly.

Then Blanky posts to the forum and everyone's pointing their fingers at me going - your fault, your fault. ;-)

I'm actually pretty excited about it. I can live with a reset if that happens, (although I am glad it's unlikely) but I'm really looking forward to the housing chages.

Also, I'm pretty happy about what it says about Tiny Speck as a company, I've said to other people that there many similarities between Dreamwidth and Tiny Speck, (given to differences in their actual businesses), and their commitment to transparency is one of them.

Plus double the credits means a total spending spree in the wardrobe!

I have one invite three invites left for Glitch, does anyone want it? (See my previous post for reasons why you might want to join).

As I only have the one, please only ask if you really think you're going to play. (Obviously if you take it and don't get on with it, no harm no foul. ;-) )

Comments are screened so you can safely leave your email address for me to send the invite to.

They send you notification emails like this -

[name redacted] has added you as a contact on Glitch. They probably did this so
they can contact you when they are playing the game.

Or maybe they did it so they can beat you at the game and be victorious. I am a computer and anyway, there is really no way I could tell even if I had achieved self-consciousness.
Either way, it's not creepy at all - it's fun. So ... enjoy!

[name redacted] has added you as a contact on Glitch. They probably did this so that they could contact you in the game.

They may have added you so they could invite you to parties. Or challenge you to races. Or ask you important questions about that thing they've heard you're an expert in.

Or maybe, just maybe they added you so that they could send you diamonds every day in the mail. And two tickets to that thing you love. They probably didn't, of course, but anything is possible. It is Glitch, after all.

I'm on a horse.


and

[name redacted] has added you as a contact on Glitch.

[name redacted]? I hear you ask: Who is this [name redacted]?!? What do they want from me? Are they real? Is this a trick? What's going on? Is this [name redacted] a robot? Some kind of test? WHY ME?!?

To which I say: woah there, pickle! [name redacted] probably just added you so that they could contact you while playing the game. To send mail, or challenge you for races.
See? It's all cool, and not weird or freaky at all! (Disclaimer: unless it is)

Sign in to the game to say hi, and maybe add [name redacted] as a contact too, if you haven't already: http://beta.glitch.com/profiles/.../


and

[name redacted] has added you as a contact on Glitch. This is probably
because they want to be able to contact you while you're playing the
game.

You may know [name redacted], you may not. Perhaps you've helped them out on a
quest, perhaps they just wandered past and admired the cut of your jib.
How should I know?
However, one thing I do know: It's not weird, just friendly.

Sign in to the game to say hi. Or don't, whatever... no skin off my
nose. Or it wouldn't be if I had a nose, which I don't (being software):

and

[name redacted] has added you as a contact on Glitch. Probably
so they can contact you in the game.

Why? Who knows. But it might well be the beginning of a beautiful
friendship. Years from now, sitting, watching the suns setting behind
Jethimadh Tower, you might look back on this moment and say "[name redacted]?
Do you remember that time you added me as a contact? And all the crazy
adventures we've had since then?" And [name redacted] will smile, and nod.

"Good times, Ama Gafr" [name redacted] will say. "Good times."

Let the good times roll by signing in to the game to say hi now:

I love this game soooo much.
