David and Halo:

 

You guys really SHOULD stop by! To give you an idea of how huge this place is:

 

1. there are FOURTEEN picture slots

 

2. I have NO active items in the Penthouse - YET, after decorating I have only THREE free furniture slots!

 

Took a break to pop in the forums ... but Mermaid is holding class, teaching people that getting 1 million is NOT too hard. Remember that with 3 weeks left in Season 1m, Mermaid earned only 100,000. At the end of Season 1, Mermaid:

 

A) Earned 12 million

 

B) was Roulette Champ for Season 1

 

C) was #10 overall!

 

And with only three weeks of playing!

Sophronia:

 

Appreciate the kind words! FYI I've always admired the dedication of you and the HCVs ... NOW, even more so after going through the effort of GIVING tours! It's fun -- but exhausting! :-) So thanks to you and the HCVs!

 

NOW -- I need to say something "on topic", but controversial. Keep in mind I'm posting to try to help people stay OUT of trouble.

 

Without mentioning names, I'm totally shocked at the hubris of people. It's one thing to STEAL a personal space ... it's another to ADVERTISE the fact you stole a space!

 

FYI folks, Digital Leisure is planning to make the Penthouse available to those who earned 1 million -- at the END OF OCTOBER. For the next three weeks, according to DL I've been "rewarded" by them with giving tours! :-D Again the HCVs put a lot of work giving tours, still I'm being facetious here!

 

Back to being serious -- with all that in mind, currently only I LEGITIMATELY own the Penthouse space, since no one else has been awarded it yet.

 

What makes it worse for the hacker is this: since the space includes a video poker machine AND a slot machine tied to the Casino, the moment you enter the Penthouse, DL's servers KNOW IT -- and connect (so you can use the machines). You don't need to actually USE the machines; connection to DL servers happens when you enter the space.

 

Other than informing DL, I plan to do nothing about it. REASON: the users who STOLE the Penthouse are recorded on DL servers. DL can deal with them as they see fit.

 

I'm posting this because, while hacking items and spaces may be "cool", in the case of the Penthouse, it's also dangerous. But if the hackers want to take the chance of stealing the PH, we'll see what happens.

 

Now I'll leave it DL to handle!

 

BTW - tours continue for the next three weeks, so feel free to ask! :-)

I have a video tour of the space to maybe take a bit of the pressure off of our host Superlatives. Goodnees you have to be so busy. I've updated my initial post with the video as well.

 

Hope you all like it!  Smiley Happy

Aren't you blowing this just a little out of proportion?

Actually, it's a great trait to have. Giving tours as busy and time consuming as it is, it's hard to pay constant attention to surroundings and who visits with friends.. ugh. I feel you. This is an old issue and it's sad in a way. It has happened a few times during my old tour days. Anyways, keep doing you and keep up the good work. it's appreciated.
