Lucius's Little Truths
Pity is not a virtue.
Do You Yahoo?
Well it seems like I'm not the only one experiencing problems with Yahoo. For the past couple of days now, messages would sometimes take up to 24 hours to post. For those who make it a habit to report guild and/or shop locations, it has been a living hell. Sometimes, by the time the message posts on the board, the shop's gone to another location.
My sources informed me that Yahoo is making changes to their "yahoo groups" and since it is an email-based type of subscription/membership, Yahoo's upgrading and making changes to "better serve us". So what is going on with Yahoo? *shrug* Beats me, but whatever it is, they better fix it fast, I can almost imagine an angry mob of vampires ready to slaughter them because of all this inconvenience.

What's Going On?
There's a lot of frustrated vampires out there. First, Yahoo's being a pain in the neck (pardon the pun) for delays in message posting and for losing messages in the process. On top of all this, RavenBlack.Net seems to be having issues as well. It's only speculation that the creator's probably making some changes to the game. People complained about the page taking a long time to load and sometimes the page would only have a blank/black screen. I've experienced this myself. When contacted via AOL Instant Messenger, RavenBlack only replied with an automated 'away' message. I will try to contact The Creator via email. I will keep VNN readers posted on this situation.
From Stef/AstaTheBroken who emailed me this link: http://nightwatch.cjb.net/ And said "Eventually we're going to be sort-of law enforcement of the RP rules, when they're made, at least. For now, we don't have much, but we invite the reporters in to check it out." With all the goings on around The Graveyard, ladies and gentlemen, please keep this link in mind, add it to your bookmarks, you might eventually find a reason to use it. In the meantime, go check this place out, okay?
