Editors note Mikamon

Welcome to issue number 101 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

A week has already passed since our 100st issue and the time has been flying. As expected, this week's Buzz has the contest results in. Many players have competed in our contest, hoping to be the lucky one that would win our grand prize, or to be that random player who would win one of the runner up prizes. As over 50 people have sent in the correct answers, all prices will be doubled! Check out the contest article in this issue to see if you are one of the winners.

This week, we say goodbye to Moderator Shaggerty. After being on the Help Desk with his suicided account, the Elite Guard reached a decision this week and decided to remove him. Also, this week had many failed Organized Crimes. After several updates from Sabin, OCs seemed to fail more often. However, was it really because of Sabin or was it a result of leaders who didn't pay attention? Read the article to find out more.

Of course, we also have the normal Bootleggers news we are expected to bring you. This week is no exception when it comes to crews. Both The Legends and The FataL Wounds decided to sell their spots. As a result, we welcome The Vanguard and Eternal Labyrinth to the statistics.

As always, we have our weekly articles. 'Behind the Name', 'A Year Back' and the 'Buzz Tutorial' are all there for you to enjoy. This week, the tutorial will show you around the Buzz page. 'Crew of the Week' has been postponed but will certainly be there again in the future.

As always, we are looking for writers. If you are interested in becoming a writer then read the re-printed version of "So You Think You Can Write?" in issue 97. Please submit a sample article of a recent Bootleggers event via selecting Application in the "Send a" located on the bottom of each Buzz. Remember to mind your grammar, punctuation and spelling. If you are dead by the time we contact you, please submit the same article all over again! Your articles will be reviewed as quickly as possible but please have patience, we won't forget about you.

Remember, anyone can write a freelance article and they are obviously free to do so. They are a chance for each of you to have a voice about the game and possibly share any thoughts that you may have with the BL community. We are sad that we haven't received many lately and would like to encourage everyone to send them in. This week, we are proud to publish three of them but we would love to publish more. So start sending them in! Also, be sure to check out, as advertised here.

That'd be all for the Editors Note, folks!
Enjoy the read! Take care and stay safe.
