Word on the Streets

Updates, new Monthly Mementos, and VOTING
Admin CavemanJoe2016-11-01 20:51:05
Hey, all. Updates have been slow lately because BABY, but the new Kittania outpost has its art all ready, and all I have to do now is write a bunch of descriptions and code and it'll be ready to rock. In the meantime, there's a new Monthly Memento out for November, and you'll be pleased to learn it's got nothing whatsoever to do with the American elections.

And now, I must ask a favour of you. My friend Sabrina is doing a research project for her psychology class, and she needs participants. If you click here, you can take a 10-minute test (I know it says 30 minutes, but that's like a slowest-case-scenario thing) that will a) help Sabrina out immensely, b) show off the Island's amazing ability to swarm upon a thing and take it from 60-odd participants to like way way more than that (and the more participants, the more reliable the results) and c) contribute to Very Important Scientific Research, and I don't know if you're aware of this, but contributing to Very Important Scientific Research is the duty of every citizen of the planet Earth. The research is over - thanks to you lot, we blew it up! Sabrina has more participants than she knows what to do with. If you're in the USA today, and you're eligible to vote, YOU MUST DO SO. I am a dirty immigrant with no right to vote, so y'all better do so.

Have fun, and hopefully we'll have a new Outpost for you to explore soon!
