It is quiet in the Kingdom. Not completely quiet ofcourse as there is at least one party partying, the AN/AM Birthday is on and still going strong for 2 more days ^^ But Otherwise it’s rater quiet… All hunters have something to catch (up with), and the bartenders are polishing their glasses. The devs are working hard on the Zugzwangs Tower, trying to get that Zugzwang’s magic under control ^^
But we did find a few tiny newsbites worth telling you…
* This week’s Feedback Friday will take place at 2pm EDT (6pm GMT)
The original message had a mismatch between the EDT time and the GMT time listed. But that was soon explained and cleared up by moderator and support-worker Michele and the ticker has been adjusted.
In the Mailbag thread in the Tavern Michele posted this as well: “Ideas/feedback on the timed areas (cove/acolyte) would be welcomed this week as the devs are looking at possibly changing the way the timed environments work in the future. This is not something that is going to happen now/next week/anytime soon so please do not ask for specifics – it’s just at the idea stage right now.”
There is still time to post your question (or suggestion) for Feedback Friday in the mailbag thread: http://tinyurl.com/mailbagweek31
* It is quiet in the Kingdom. So here the Mibbler could end…
But its not Mousehunt if its not completely quiet ofcourse! There has been at least one Rucous resulting in the banning of some more or less famous hunters. As most have missed all or many parts of what was being said or exchanged, and since all threads have been deleted, almost nobody knows what truely happened.
Let me tell you this: RadioactiveGoldmouse has let his witchhunt get out of control, and has gotten many of the old garde hunters mad and on top of that getting 3 more hunters banned. The old-garde retaliated, resulting in RGm’s ban (amongst others).
Ofcourse everybody is wondering: will there be a FBF-review this week?
* Incidents of Wiped Corkboards stay Mystery O.o
Many hunters have come back to their profile page to find their cork messages all wiped and gone. A clean slate as it were, altough some had handy notes in there that got lost. Michelle, our support-worker and one of the moderators, said this during the week: “Sadly a solution still has not been found for this. It seems to happen to only certain people, so no one has been able to replicate it to find out why.”
==== Forum Features: What’s keeping hunters busy? ====
* Do hunters want a sneak peek? Feedback on the devs questions
The devs questions posted in last weeks news were these: How do you feel about releasing teasers like this more often? How much detail about new areas should be in the teaser? Should details in teasers be ‘set in stone’?
Generally the feeling is: “Keep the teasers coming, don’t give too much info. Finding things out yourself is way more fun.” The setting in stone is getting mixed reactions.
And someboy was so smart to point out that there have always been sneek peak-teasers: the shadows of mice on the mouse page that suddenly appeared and where yet to be discovered surely slowly build expectations! ^^
Ofcourse there were also threads in the Tavern being critical at the decision on Zugzwangs Tower after last fridays news post. Hunters were for instance worried about the Zugzwangs Tower being so suddenly changed into a Lord’s area: Is there enough time to do the approriate preparations and changes to make it worthy & rewarding enough for Lord’s and Lady’s?
The protest and pro and con threads have already died out and what can i say? All this for sure is a sign of a very much involved community ;)
If you happen to be worried, you can read all pros and con-arguments in this thread: http://tinyurl.com/zugzwangsprosandcons
==== Rumours, Speculations & Opinions ====
* Catching embers without the Ice Maiden
Hunters want to get to the Cove! Yes they do. Several threads have been asking and reporting this week about the possibility to go hunt for embers in Dracano while not having the appropriate trap. Apparantly they can be caught with HVMT or even Rhinobot.
Here’s one source amongst many little threads: http://tinyurl.com/3249p6p

# Anybody who has news or wants to write a (fluffy) piece but not a whole Mibbler, can send the copy or the idea, or even just the interesting thread-adress… to my pm-box :)
# No News, no Mibbler, as there is a a very strong-headed non-fluff person on the board of advisors.
# No Fluff, well – we have to warn you here – but in case of no fluff we might accidentally still post a Mibbler with strong warnings of putting on your sunglasses first before reading.
# If no crew: no Mibbler. Which is really really sad. Luckily there’s always the possibility of posting your news or newsrelated question in the last Mibbler’s thread.
