      @Freddy ZBrush is in Connor's array of tools, and if you've got chops there might be a role. If you want to take a stab at something Erfworldish, just email it to the gobwinknob @ gmail address. Word of warning, though: I am a very tough room. I've...

        @Crivens Then "training and managing that person" becomes my part-time job, which is a reason I'd hesitate to even accept the volunteer effort. Almost everybody I've talked to who monetizes ads on their site gets much worse results than we were...

            Nonrandom thoughts (maybe in order even) Yay! Much Yay! Shiny! Cool! Ads - while the nth party brokered adstream(s) generate needed shmuckers with the ad rotations they were also subject to the occasional hijack/scareware/etc. Would going...

              When ads are re-implemented, would it be possible to add an opt-in switch for tools? If it would help, I'd gladly gaze upon Generica :)

                  @shneeky's offer is generous, but in the words of Homer's brain, "Money can be exchanged for goods and services!" The ads were earning $50,000 per year, was it? And managing the ads is a part-time job, you say? What if I told you that you could...

                    @wild card We really appreciate it. It never leaves my mind that you and 2200 other people are going to work at your job, then contributing a piece of the paycheck you earn to make Erfworld still be our jobs. Thank you.

                      @shneeky Since it's you, I will very seriously consider that offer. Let me start the process of seeing which ad companies we used before are even still in business. There is one who was doing some of the patroling but they stopped being worthwhile....

                        That's great news! Unfortunately, I have some bad news for you too. I can't checkout and pay you in store. Says the following when I try: Error: Checkout cannot be completed because tax has not been calculated. Reasons: No to zip, required...

                            I really do hope something better comes along soon. Radiotherapy is definitely something you want to avoid. I think there are already better options, if you catch it soon enough. Good luck Rob and Linda!

                              You know, I seem to recall from one of Parson's klogs that he got in trouble for not patrolling the city because it runs more efficiently when a Warlord patrols it. It sounds like what you need is a Warlord for the City of Adze, who can go on...

                                  Wow, I've come back to Erfworld after taking a break for a year now. Was great to read new content and see how much has happened. Also sorry to read about Linda :( Good to hear she is improving though!I've spend this last year sculpting 3D models of...

                                      Tiramisù is so easy that it's the go-to recipe for teens who want to prepare desserts! Super easy! Unless you want to prepare lady's finger by yourself - then it's slightly more complicated, tbf. All the best to you and linda!

                                          From My Point of View: Go ahead and bring back the ads. I can put up with them for the sake of Linda's kiester (and I'll refrain from any more pain in the Bottom jokes)

                                            Well, thats great news for Linda (except for her keister maybe) so awesome. Limiting the available gems is economically sound, the now or never approach always helps with people wavering whether they should buy or not. As for me: Bandaid: I really...
