That's an excellent message, and the sort of thing I hope gets some more main stream attention. I can't think of a good way to work it directly into the "invite the media to play the game" press release I'm putting out tonight (for a scheduled Media Day of Oct. 20), but I think I might slip it in as a separate link on the emails and messages that I use to send out said release.

Well although a few of the Paragon City folks have gotten jobs, for most of them it appears that the situation is pretty dire.

One of them in known in doll circles as SDink, and here is what she posted on her LJ today.

"
Just read the following on ZoZ from the Inimitable S-Dink:

It's been a really hard month for me, the Company I worked for closed it's doors with no warning to anyone, it was a very sad day and it has been really emotional for me. Being unemployed is not something I am used to and I am frightened to death.
 
The job market looks dismal. I need to be patient and wait for the right opportunity for me. Luckily they paid us until the end of this month and we get a decent severance so i have taken it upon myself to start up commissions again to help until I get a job. I will be collecting unemployment soon but it is not going to be enough to get me by so I need some extra cash ^_^"

I will go down with this ship.  I won't put my hands up in surrender.  There will be no white flag above my door.  I'm in love, and always will be.  Dido

I'm sorry to hear he's going through such tough times.
At the same time though... if Posi does start a new project in November...

I am reasonably certain that Dink is a she. :)

We're in long haul efforts to create bad PR for NCsoft now.   As has been mentioned in another thread, bad PR is EXTREMELY costly to deal with, and it's our cheapest option as well.  So just keep spreading word about how bad NCSoft the mmo killer is, how they killed off a profitable game, and how anything they release could be shut down without any real warning.

My grandpa used to tell me a story about the time his commander ordered an update on how his soldiers were doing in the middle of a dry oasis surrounded by vicious natives wielding harpoons and grenades. I wouldn't hold my breath on most of that being true because at the time he was searching for his lost marbles without pants on and had used grape jelly as facial camouflage. He fell asleep on top of the fern pot shortly after, so I didn't get to hear the rest..
