Future of TMN / tmnX

This is what happened:
All fuzzy, through a full-screen application, I noticed Outlook had come up with a balloon stating I had received an e-mail from DC. I quickly sent an e-mail asking him to get on msn, and, more surprising than the e-mail, he got on msn, and we started talking. We talked through microphones for a while, and chatted over msn some more after that.

A quick summary:
  • TMN will return
  • We'll change as little as possible to the look, feel and gameplay of it
  • We won't merge tmnX into TMN
  • We may use scripttests on login page, and use auto-logouts to prevent 24-7 scripting
  • We will save money by using a cheaper server
  • The server should be up today or tomorrow
  • We will try and really work together this time
  • We may publish PayPal donate records every 3 (or so) months*
  • I will try and keep up this blog, to inform players, staff members, and total strangers
  • DC will be more active for the next 8 months
  • I will no longer wait for his permission, and just act when I feel it's needed
  • We may re-launch tmnX later, when we changed the things we didn't like ourselves
*: Not daily, weekly or monthly, because it may influence the game. I proposed this because I'm a fair person, and think the players deserve to know at least some of it.

I really thought I had included this... But guess not.

I can't estimate a date for the relaunch of TMN yet. We're working on it, but it will take some time.

For now, a wild guess would be 2-3 weeks.
