Sock 2

Again, sorry for being later- life dictates the times at which my columns go up, and this week hasn't been terribly kind to me. Hmph.

Today's Tips:

  • Guild Leaders, take note: I will allow you to send private messages to others, if you need to. Try to keep the mail-flow through my inbox, however, to a minimum: Exchanging e-mail addresses and such works way, way better for me, and it would probably be way easier for you, too.
  • Just a friendly reminder to a few of you: You may only exchange your points for one item at any one benchmark once, and once you have obtained a benchmark item, you can no longer receive any other items from that benchmark, ever. Thus, be very careful when you make your choices! Remember that exchanging points for benchmark items or prizes does not use up your daily action, so bear that in mind.

Submission Form

Honesty is important! Don't spoil the game. Keep in mind that masqueraders will be obvious, since two submissions under the same name will cause me to fire an e-mail to the true competitor based on my records, where I can verify their actions. Anybody caught cheating in this manner will be immediately removed from the competition!

Please fill out your nickname and your actions for the day! Place your answer choices in the respective boxes (don't worry about being precise with wording or anything), and write your action in the action box. You can equip or unequip stuff once per day without taking your action up, too. Examples of actions could be "I want to attack Li'l Ant!" or "I want to buy two Eye Dropses!" or "I want to buy a Wood Sword and Smelling Salts, and I want to equip the Wood Sword!"
