HOW ABOUT A 2.0 REBATE !!!

Hi Everyone, Happy Easter !!

It's 5 A.M., Easter Sunday morning and my dogs have told me that it is time to chase rabbits and the neighborhood possum. I challenged a player yesterday to a showdown and I just found out that we had a stalemate. After making the challenge, I didn't know if I was right or wrong and how fast my time was. I did get a big error code sign to notify Support. After notifying Support about my problem, they sent me a nice note that said that I had to wait for the challengee to respond for my results, "BUT", 2.0 is very near. This is the third or fourth time this has happened to me.

I have been a paid member since February 2007 and I have been told that this 2.0 stuff and Ker-Blunk or Plunk would be here by April 2007, Doh. I don't know or care what 2.0 is, but fellow players think it will be a revolution in the Trivia Game system. I think as a "Token" of appreciation to all paid patient members, Sploofus should give paid members one Wager token for each month of waiting, as of April 2007. If a player started after April 2007, give a token for each month from starting date. As paying players, we are less than 5% of the Sploofus community, I think we should be compensated. As a player in Word round, matches and puzzles, there are some names I don't see anymore. This token gesture could be a good way to hold on to what is here.

To all my Sploofus Friends and Detractors, Happy Easter or Happy Sunday,

Bill

I just renewed my membership this morning. Yes, Ker-Blunk is the only reason that I am hanging on. Living without it has not been easy, but the mere hope of a FITB formatted game gets me thru the hard times. I am sure Justin was watching my account tick down with hope that I'd go away. Too bad. Still here. I will say, that Mr. Morton is truly a man of his word. He has been for as long as I have been on this wonderful island. I have no doubt that he is working his tail off to deliver on his promise. I can't imagine that anyone who loves something as much as he would have to love Sploofus, would not be pouring both heart and soul into making it better. Rebate? No thanks!

I'm definitely looking forward to 2.0 and some of the suggestions I've sent in that I've told will be part of it.

Despite some of the junk that happens on the bbs, and the occasional glitch, I'm always impressed with the support for those glitches.

Although I hope it's not far away, I cannot imagine my day without the daily WP (despite the fact that for the 2nd month in a row I've been unable to do them all) - and the occasional word round when I get the time. I'm so very busy that I don't get to do quizzes like I started out with, but am trying to participate in the community quizzes at least now - I think Justin is a fair person and I look forward to see what is to come.

Bill, I was in Philly last May and met Justin Morton and was fortunate to spend some time with him and to get a peek at a tiny part of what he was working on for 2.0. Anyone who was in Philly with me can tell you it's no token of appreciation, but sweeping change. Tell you the truth, maybe more change than I'm ready for, so I'm enjoying Old Sploofus as much as I can before it's gone forever.

I keep thinking about going back to my old Unitarian fellowship in Pennsylvania. After several years of absence I returned to find the entire building remodeled, and the old downstairs meeting room in which I had partaken in so many meaningful services, read poetry, sang songs, acted in plays, where I'd been married and dedicated children and grandchildren, was now a dusty storage area, and the new meeting room was a huge vaulted bright expanse with a glass wall looking out over woods and creek. The new meeting room was beautiful and badly needed, no doubt, but what I will always remember most about that morning was standing in the gloom of the cluttered old downstairs room and bawling my eyes out that it was gone. This memory makes me content to wait.

You really can't go home again.

It will be interesting to see how many of the people who have bitched about waiting for 2.0 end up bitching about 2.0.

I really don't care about 2.0 one way or the other. What does bother me is that we have had repeated notices of release dates and then those dates come and go without a word. That leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I would appreciate a note saying that its not ready rather than nothing. It makes one feel insignificant to be ignored.

Well, my son's account lapsed and I'm not paying for a gold until 2.0.

Software releases are supposed to miss by 30-60 days, not a year.

Is it fair to compare the performance of big corporations to what is essentially one guy with a day job?

I don't know, I'm asking.

Seems to me Justin's biggest flaw is getting too excited and telling people too soon. I learned when my kids were small not to say there would be cookies until the cookies were in hand.

Not to change the subject Donna, but have you seen that Armor-All commercial."HILLARIOUS". Back to the subject, I was "NOT" trying to bad mouth Justin, I didn't even mention his name. I just repeated what one of the Sploofpeople told me when I inquired about my showdown, like I was instructed. I thought it would be a nice gesture to give some of the loyalists a little reward for their patience. Could you see me with 12 Wager Tokens, I'd be jumping off the Sear's Tower.

Smaug, Cookie cravings have gotten me in ackward situations, more than once. lol

I have to agree with Donna because I was at Philly as well and the changes that are coming are not minor little tweeks but massive changes. New games in the works and all kinds of neat stuff. I understand everyone is tired of waiting for it to come out but I think it will be worth the wait once it is finished. It will take some adjusting to get used to it because of some of the changes but that's okay because sometimes change is good. I think Justin just bit off more than he could chew since he is doing all the programing for it and when there is a bug or error he is the one that is having to try and track it down and fix it, while still working his other job. Sploofus is a job in and of itself but it doesn't pay the bills ya know. So I'm not too worried about 2.0 because I know it will get here when it's done. I would rather wait it out and get a 2.0 that isn't full of bugs and glitches than have it rushed.

If you ask for the cookies one more time before they're ready, there will be NO cookies for Smaug!

Now go play nice!

Poor old Ed was on his death bed, about to cash in his chips when he suddenly smelled fresh-bake oatmeal raisin cookies. They were his favorite snack in the whole world. With his last shards of strength he pulled himself from his bed and crawled across the floor to the stair. Carefully, he slid down the stairs and crawl into the kitchen. With great effort, he pulled himself up onto a chair. There they were, still hot. Their aroma filling the room. Ahhhhhh, his heart leaped as he reach for the plate. Just then, his wife walked into the room and smacked him hard on his outstretched hand. "Leave them alone!" she admonished him. "They're for the funeral!"

There will no doubt be cookies. Of the electronic sort.
