Editors note AldarionIsTheStig

Hello and welcome to issue #58 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

Bit of a tough one, this issue. Originally planned to have more articles than we currently have. Main stories of this week's issue are the new updates: crimes and double XP weekends. We got both stories covered. Also coming this week is the Buzz Awards 2010 and we need you to sort out the nominations. Please, check out the article that explains the procedure. The weekly contest was canceled due to lack of respondents but to thank those who participated we decided to award all of them with the prize of 500K.

Lack of some writer effort has always been an issue for the Buzz yet it is somewhat irritating when confronted with it, even though I have been guilty myself as well, in the past. I'm not particularly happy with the way things ran this week so aiming to improve that for the next issue. We are still looking for writers who can help us to write articles and columns about the game! (Check out last week's issue about the application procedure). This is the reason we're a bit short on articles this week. All weekly things have been covered but there isn't a (major) column or anything like it.

That's the reason I am particularly happy with the two Freelance articles we've received in the beginning of the week. MisStarry wrote an interesting article about the OTF and the events going on down there and honestly, I think it brings up a very important point, should the OTF just be a trash bin where everyone can do whatever he or she wants to do?

Klutz wrote an articles about the (recent) increase in criticism on the game and the way it's being run. I think it hits some very important points that we sometimes easily forget in the process of playing the game. We shouldn't be here just to criticize what is going on. Good read, go check it out!

That'll be my talk for the week. Enjoy the read!

The impact of the OTF MisStarry

Yes, we all know that BL is a mafia game and that the aim is to annoy and kill as many people as possible. But how much of an impact do some of the discussions on the OTF have on impressionable and vulnerable members of society?
