Re: NO username

As each name can only be used once, people who return often use Roman numerals after their original name, to show which incarnation they are on. Other than that, there's the top 100 rankings, and scrolling through nomes, looking for people who show as active within hours or days. People who want to ...

I was indeed refeering to authors providing free works. There are indeed a lot of them. As for the drm problem, it get worse if someone wants to buy an ebook on amazon to read it not on a kindle (so no account) but on another reader. It's simply impossible... That would be because other ereaders us...

Otherwise i much prefer reading on the kindle than on a computer or a tablet. And if you prefer reading books that are newer than the ones in gutembe...

For an easier way to search for freebies on the Amazon Kindle site, I would recommend http://uk.ereaderiq.com/freebies/ as the site of choice for many of the Amazon Kindle Forum regulars. It is good for tracking price drops and books that you would like to be kindleized as well. Project Gutenberg do...

I'm playing Nile Online as a returner after an 18-month absence: coming up to my first birthday in this life and I still have an exceedingly poor rank in Theoris. Trying the 'no bakeries' game in Sabah before I play it for real in Theoris. I was playing Miniconomy and GreedGame (both by the same sin...

I'll keep an eye out for people reporting that as a bug, Morrighan. I haven't sent out any ships yet, but I will check my transports when I do. It may be a new, 'improved' version of the travel time bug whereby ship captains are on a go slow. Oh, it never rains....well we are in Egypt, so no it does...

Strange signs and evil portents have been reported up and down the Nile. Many boats have been lost to Hapi, and the crocodile population seems to have diminished. Scribes are recording the losses and reporting them to our Lord and Pharaoh. General advice is to make sure that you have made the approp...

Hmmm. Never saw that before. Did you try purging your browser cache? It looks like one of the menus is overlaying the image of the pyramids. What browser are you using? I should have thought of that yesterday, since it's one of the things I keep telling people to do when refresh/relog doesn't work....

Glitching Pyramids

My pyramids have just developed a slight glitch. This is probably not the best picture link, but it shows what happened:

Hi bevus. I still remember your 1 soldier attack with much fondness. If you're still playing, come and pay us a visit on the General Wall. I'm sure we'd all like to catch up. :D

The solution has been to roll back to 18th March, when the game was stable. Therefore we have lost a bit of time.

It doesn't require Facebook to play. I have been playing for a few weeks now, and it is reasonably amusing.

Make rank more interesting

I wonder if player rank can be made more interesting? Currently you can only view the top 100 players, which may not be of much interest to players further down in the list. In other games, when you look at rank, it shows you where you are in the list, and you can often search for other players by n...
