Editors note Nyxxinator

WELCOME to issue number 62 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

An interesting read you are in store for this week. Although barely anything happened, our Buzz is packed with interesting articles and fun quizzes.

Interesting articles this week is from mostly our Freelance Article writers. Thanks to them, this Buzz is definitely read-worthy! Along with their articles is an article written by myself about our un-official counterpart, BLTimes. Upon hearing some interesting information from players, I did a little journalistic investigation and put together a rather interesting article that is sure to cause some stir.

If you have been active this week in the game, you'll notice the game running at a turtle-like pace. This is due to a bug that was fixed a day or so after it was noticed. This bug, although annoying for those used to fast browsing speed, took the game back to when there was over 800 players online at once. Although this time, it seemed the server couldn't handle the bandwith.

The winner to the $5,000,000 contest was announced this week. Congratulations to the winner. However, to find out who, exactly, is this person... You'll have to open up the article and see for yourself.

A freelance article, written by AceAdamX, defintitelly began some creative juices stirring in my brain. Because of his article, I have created a QUIZ to find out, "What Bootleggers Player are You?" It's fun to play and offers pictures to place on your profile after you have taken them. I hope you enjoy it as it did take me a good amount of time to create it.

Along with the Quiz is the "Buzz Report Card." It is time for you to send in your opinions of the Buzz, its writers, editor and it's current status. By copy and pasting the link in the article provided, you will be sent to a poll. The poll is quick and easy and we'd LOVE if you can take part it in. I promise it will not take more than three minutes of your time!

Other articles are in this Buzz that are a great read, along with our "Behind the Name." Featuring three players this week, the "Behind the Name" is a random choosing of players, so do not Bootmail me, Nyxxie, asking to be a "victim" or "next featured player on the Behind the Name." Your time will come eventually!

We are, as always, looking for writers. Even more now that most of mine are being kidnapped by their teachers with excessive homework (ew!) and tests (ew!). So if you have what it takes to become a writer, feel free to read the article below titled "Your Ticket to the Buzz Forum." Please send a sample article of a recent Bootleggers event to and I will personally look into it within two weeks. Remember to mind your grammar, punctuation and spelling. Make sure to include your current Bootleggers' name. If you are dead by the time we contact you, we will do it via the e-mail you used to contact us, so keep checking on that as well!
