And thus, double accounting.

Actually, ders is not that bright. He's got one account called ders66789, and another called - I swear to God - ders12345.

That's interesting, because I reported ders to Reedotep, in-game, for double accounting about a week ago.

Geeze man, when some enterprising young soul ramps four cities up to L22 and does nothing more than crank out raw and lux for PayPal, y'll are going to have conniptions. If he does this while occupying a space in the top ten, Tink may actually implode :)

Good example. But In this game, it´s not a deposit - you actually LOSE your fee if you delist the item - and then you have to pay it again to list the item again! Yup. Otherwise you could beat your warehouse limits by "selling" 10,000 bricks at 30 bread each for emergency storage. Some people do th...

3rd city. You have no need for the monument now, and there are four in your nome. Which side makes zero difference; within the same nome it's all 9 minutes. The costs of holding a monument at your levels will be difficult to carry - it's not the military materials cost, it's the bread cost. Even if ...

It's not as simple as that. It's a spectrum, not a binary system. Gender is social characteristics, sex is physical characteristics. Gender variations include more than male and female; hijra is only one example, and we have others in western culture. There are also other also other chromosome combi...

My starting city has cedar, and my 2nd city is gold. 2nd city has a jewelry maker, and I buy emeralds from the market. This supplies all my jewelry needs for palace upgrades since every upgrade needs lots. Should my 3rd city be emeralds, or should I choose something else? Emeralds I can usually buy...

But you're not the only one using ambrosia - others of us are as well, so that can't be the advantage. Possibly you're just a better player!

I did my 2nd city at L4. The guy across the river from me did it at L3. I think L6-8 is more common, but even though it took me what seemed like forever to build up the resources for it, I have never had any regrets. When you're bored or frustrated enough to get a 2nd, get one :D There are a couple ...

Yeah, I mean for IK, it's definitely some form of extortion. Why is it extortion? You do not need to buy ambrosia to play, and they have to make a living. What's wrong with the model they have? The features are very nice and quite addictive (which is very smart of them) but they don't get you anywh...

PS, because this is important:

I started playing IK to fill in time on NO. With a 24 hour upgrade, there isn't a lot to do on NO besides throw bread at monuments and do my daily trades with my partners. That's completely fine - it's how the game was designed - but I like that you can be in a state of constant activity on IK if yo...

Your premise fails. If you cannot name any games with volunteer moderators, you cannot know that they are unpredictable.

You don't need to be a non-profit to have volunteers. Plenty of online games have them, as do massive numbers of forums. That's a non-factor.
