yeah I can't stand it either. I don't use it for my own personal stuff - I use it for strictly euo marketing. However it is a good way to get a message out to old players about new stuff. Not everyone checks teh forums every 5 mins like I do.

Egg, could you do something with your twitter so it automatically tweets when someone buys the 1.5xp bonus?

Thanks for stopping doing that with PD deaths by the way...!

Great idea: just implemented it - so now everyone playing euo should follow my twitter ! https://twitter.com/euotopia

Re deaths: it was actually broken :o I fixed it in order to get the above working, but it won't tweet unless the player who died was at least 200

I think you were 49th actually, if you are R S .. the 50th I know IRL

the problem with twitter is that I don't have enough banal shit to spam it up with while I'm being unproductive trying to sell fucking tshirts!
I have this self imposed twitter rule: no being negative about anything or complaining about 'my boring 1st world problems' that it doesn't leave much to tweet about LAUGHING OUT LOUD LIKE A MORON

How about we host another event for an item (like the former Brazier.png) to hepl boost the Facebook page to 500+? :cool:

This may be of some use because lately I have seen many new comers and this obviously helps out the game.

*** Side note I re-read the first page of this thread and LAUGHING OUT LOUD LIKE A MORON'd so hard at reading

I hate facebook and consider deleting the euo page but I think it might the best way to get old players coming back, rather than getting new players

I post a little on twitter https://twitter.com/euotopia so follw meh!! it's not often euo related though

I also actively collect pics on the internet of stuff on Pinterest https://www.pinterest.com/eggmceye/pins/

Do you still check the forums every 5 minutes? Actually, hadn't seen much activity or haven't been paying attention. Thought you might be ill or loaded with work and overtime. Stressing the bills.

That's good. I thought you were either ill or depressed or possibly so stacked with work that you had to neglect your hobbies? Or vacation.

People keep asking me what your job is and I shrug to myself and just say you work for an internet business. Honestly I have no idea.

Maybe you're like these villains in a bond movie with your cat on your lap looking for world domination.

MUAHAHAHAHAHA!!

BUMP so I have a question, what would be required income wise to have some more development. I love this game and find myself on and off again every 6 months because I do what I always enjoyed then hit a lull.

I know coding and all that stuff I'll never understand is time consuming and left to only a few of you guys BUT! More people more money (get these people on pd, res stones make money!).

Is there any way to get euo advertised for free through players on Facebook? For example "entertain your nerdy ass" private group on Facebook I'm in, what comes from some simple conversation starters about a bad ass retro RPG? One person can't do this and get the exposure we need of course.

Rewards for people who share bad ass videos on EUO page showing cool mob desimation, that way when someone clicks the link it doesn't look like a nostalgia Facebook but an actual playable game (no hate just saying)

I don't honestly care if more people play but if that gets people paid to expand things more maps or whatever (I'd make some but yea no way I'm computer retarded)

Ideas? Thoughts? Is this totally out of reach? Im gonna start blasting Facebook anyway I need help with simple shit though like how to paste a link with an image so it doesn't look like spam/virus

Basically youre going to have to make good entertaining videos to get the word out.

There are lots of NOW famous youtube gamer/gaming personalities out there. Reach out to them.

Here is an example of a new one i follow:

Anyone know Colt IRL? I messaged him on facebook to see if he'd advertise the birthday party on the EUO facebook page, but it probably ended up in the "other" spam inbox. :(

He should add others as admin if he is not active. :(
