    TGIF! Here’s your development news round-up for the past week!

    As a reminder, the following numbers are permanently frozen accounts, and don't count temporary freezes.

    The majority of permanently frozen accounts are frozen for being a shared or alternate account. This is something we actively investigate, and we appreciate players reporting suspicious accounts to us.

    If you have any questions or comments about a frozen account, please direct them through Support as the Forums are not the place to discuss account freezes, because of the sensitive account information involved.

    Happy weekend, players!

    Recently we noticed some players talking about meeting up in real life, which led to @mi7ch and I having a bit of an argument.

    I love the social side of our games. It's great that people can talk and help each-other, forming lasting alliances, friendships, even relationships! So I think it's awesome people who have gotten to know each other though the game are interested in meeting in person.

    My compatriot doesn't disagree, however he does have some reservations. For example, he is a bit uncomfortable with the idea of you guys using the forums to publicly organizing meetings, just in case somebody tries murder you and make a suit out of your skin.

    I certainly can't fault anyone for thinking about safety first, so we ask that players not try to organize meetups through forum posts, as this would make information about your location public. We'll be removing any posts like this that we see in the forums or games.

    You can choose to organize meetup through private channels such as PMs. HOWEVER, please make sure you do so safely! There are a wide variety of resources available that discuss this topic, and I highly recommend doing some reading before attempting a meetup.

    Here are a few essential tips from us:

    • Choose a public place
    • Bring a friend (or two!)
    • Make sure a few people know when and where you are meeting this person
    • Do some research - use social media to get a better understanding of the person you are meeting
    • Don't give out personal info like your phone number or home address
    • Trust your instincts, and don't be afraid to bail if you are not feeling comfortable.
    • Have an exit plan - something like another engagement set up for later so you will have a legit excuse to leave if you wish.

    Have fun and be safe!

    Terrible Joke of the Week
    Here's your lame joke of the week!

    Two birds are sitting on a perch.
    One says to the other, "do you smell fish?"

    I think Mi7ch has been watching to many movies where the phrase it puts the lotion on the skin or it gets the hose again is said to much.

    I have met quite a few people from FB and my games. I consider some of them my best friends. I didn't meet them though until after several years of talking and interacting with them online.
    There are people though that you can talk to for years and you think you know them only to find later that you didn't really know them at all.
    I also think there are people online who are up to no good. The advice you have given is excellent.

    one thing that i think needs to be added is if somebody suicides a raid boss dont allow them to be able to delete the post or at least put something showing they have next their name or something
