Okay, this contest is simple. Put 10 chips into the pot. After 6 people enter I'll randomly draw who wins 50 chips, fair and square. Where do the other 10 chips go? To me, possibly to use for my own ...

May 03, 2005   B$1 Quadrillion; Premium Membership Incentives; New Blogging Contest

Congratulations to mars/iris Securities for passing the B$1 Quadrillion mark this morning, becoming the first BlogShares player to do so. A veteran of the game, mars had long ago earned his spot as a BlogShares Elite player. Now that his goal has been met, he is currently offering to divest his game assets for charity. Please visit this forum thread for more information.

Premium Membership Incentive: For a limited time, all players who upgrade their accounts to Premium Membership after May 2, or who renew existing Premiums, will receive 5000 chips from Island Dave's personal stash. Once your Premium has been activated, please message Island Dave and, once confirmed, your chips will be sent. This deal ends when ID runs out of chips, so get on board with a Premium Membership soon!

New Contest: BlogShares Blogging Contest #4 is underway, with trillions in BlogShares cash, chips, and free months of Premium Membership. Visit the forum for more information.

April 15, 2005   New Roles for Old Faces

It is with great pleasure that we welcome the return to BlogShares of former BSEC member and long-time veteran Just James after a brief hiatus. His dedication to the game and community here has been rewarded with a well-deserved Administrator position. You'll see James around a lot in the forum and in IRC (and probably sniping your rare ideas off the Ideas Market), so drop in and congratulate him on a very big promotion.

Another veteran has stepped up to take what can be a difficult position at times. Thanks and congratulations go out to King Gucci Armani II for his selection as the newest cheatypants-busting BSEC member. He's eager and ready to stomp out rulebreakers, so if you're up to no good, KGA II will be coming for you!

Recent groundbreaking code has been unleashed in BlogShares, thanks to hours of tedious and often frustratingly difficult work by Suburban Wolf. Leveraged Buy Out transactions have been fixed, and the Idea sell deadlock is no more. You'll be seeing some great new things over the next few months, including some fun surprises to shake up your summer. We hope you are enjoying the BlogShares experience, and as always, if you need help, or have a suggestion, concern, or complaint, feel free to contact any Administrator or post your thoughts in the forum. Please check Help first, though, as many of your questions are already answered therein.
