Murder on Anonomy Part Five

My Blog :

Hello World ! (You can edit this later on)

Day 17

I have discovered something rather worrying on Bogworld. It seems you can challenge other users to a duel; if you win, you effectively delete their account. Likewise, if they beat you, your account is deleted . . . How can I use this to my advantage ? There are plenty I can think of whom I’d love to see deleted . . .

Welcome back to Bogworld ! We missed you ! You have a new friend invite.

‘Hi. I am Legion.’

‘Hi, Legion. Come here often, do you ?’

‘I am always here.’

‘Oh well, that’s interesting cos I ain’t seen you before.’

‘No. You have now, tho.’

‘Um.Yes. Um . . .so . . .I think I’ll . . .’

‘Have some wine.’

‘Wine?’

‘Yes. You like ?’

‘Um. All right.’

‘Have some more. You like ?’

‘Um, . . . that’s odd. My avatar seems to be moving about on its own.’

‘Your avatar is a little drunk. Funny, eh ?’

‘You think that’s funny ?’

No but seriously . .

Plug Thread : A Body on the Ethernet . . .

Can you work out whodunnit ? Read Murder on Anonomy to find out . . . or just back it to get a return read and comment, plus backing ! Can’t say fairer than that, can I ?

Plug Thread : Online Detection . . .

Have we caught enough red herrings ? Read Murder on Anonomy to find out . . .

Plug Thread : The butler didn’t do it . . .

So read it to find out . . guaranteed return read (with possible backing) if you do !  😀

Day 20

This is definitely getting a bit spooky.

Someone introduced themselves to me on Bogworld yesterday and proffered me wine. This is virtual wine, you understand. Nothing ‘real’ about it. Yet after clicking on ‘Accept’, my avatar/character, whatever you call it, started reeling about, staggering and stumbling like an idiot – on his own. Nothing I could do with mouse or keyboard could control his movements. The newbie suggested my avatar was drunk. Seemed to find the idea amusing. I’m just puzzled. It wasn’t the computer playing up either – I checked; either they have some really sophisticated gaming techno, or . . . and I emailed the site to ask whether it was part of the game. They seemed as surprised as I was; said they weren’t aware of any such ‘glitch’ as they called it, apologised and said they’d get their nerds onto it . . .

‘Hi, you have a new message from BogWorld.com. Click on the link below to access.’

Click.

‘Hi there. You have received an invite to a duel with Bogworld User Legion. Warning: Whoever wins retains their own account, but effectively deletes the loser’s account, thus causing that player to start again from scratch. You have five hours left to decline the duel.

Good luck !’

Well now, there’s a thing. What to do ? Can I win ? What if I lose ? Have I quite squeezed out everything I can get from being on here ? Time to check my account on Authonomy . . .

Message to PinkSocks from KittyMouse :

‘May I say first off how thrilled I am to be on the Ed Desk with you and Ripe Tomatoes. I really like your books by the way. I’m going to put them both on my shelf, would love it if you did the same for mine . . .’

Thread : Gaming Tactics :

Muzzled : What is GOING ON ???? (Sorry, beginning to sound like MuppetMonster)

MuppetMonster : ARE YOU IMPERSONATING ME ?????

Muzzled : But seriously, has anyone seen what’s going on at the Desk ? Mutual back-patting, mutual shelving – is this what we’re supposed to be doing ?

MuppetMonster : I OUGHT TO ARREST YOU !!!! 😀

Nefarious : Right, who’s up for a bit of mutual backing ? Happy to oblige! 😀 😀

Muzzled : I thought this was supposed to be a serious writing site, with some kind of ethical behaviour . . .

PsychoGrunge : Since when ? This has been a gaming site from the off.

Nefarious : Aww, it did start off with a different spirit.

!!Anon : When will you people understand : this is a SLUSHPILE ! – To show the publishing world what you’re made of, how good you are at networking, promoting – all those guys at the top are doing is precisely that ! Get over it !

BuleLog : Yeh, you’ve not been doing too badly yourself, have you : 312 shelves in a month, 500 comments – must be galling even for you though, that you’ve been overtaken.

!!Anon : So they have more time to network than I have. At least I don’0t have the hypocrisy to go about whining because they’re doing better than me.

BuleLog : Who’s the hypocrite ? Some of us have been trying to follow the rules.

Nefarious : What rules ? First I’ve heard of it 😉

!!Anon : Where is it written on Anonomy that there are RULES ???? Go learn to read.

BuleLog : For your information, I have a degree in English Literature – which does require a certain amount of reading, by the way.

!!Anon: Oh get over yourself.

Muzzled : Guys, guys, you’re hijacking this thread – please take your fight elsewhere ! My point is, the system is broke – which can’t be what Anonomy wants – and after all, if they want the best to reach the top so ideally they can publish half-way decent books, . . . doesn’t it make sense to mend the system so gamers are kept well out of it ?

Anonomy Admin : We agree the site has some problems which we shall be looking into in the near future: however, we would like to emphasize that no rules have been broken.

Thread : Response to Gaming Tactics Thread :

KittyMouse : Hi, everyone, in response to the earlier thread, this is just to say that I have not broken any rules as far as I know – and I think Anonomy Admin would have told me if that was the case: it’s true a lot of people are backing my books – but that doesn’t mean I asked them to – I don’t even know all of them !

I may take my book down before the end of the week as I have had interest shown by an editor and two separate agents. I hope everyone gets a chance at being published, I really do.

Love to y’all !

BlurbTicket : Hey KittyMouse, don’t go yet. At least get the review first ! Then go 😀

NightSnuff : We’re all behind you, KittyMouse, GO girl, GO!!!! J.

Prowler : Still a cute avi 😉 You show’em, don’t given in to those bullies.

Day 22

This is . . . unbelievable. Not only has that little creep KittyMouse copied my tactics for shooting to the top, she’s been mutually backing two toehrs over and ABOVE mine – and now says she has an editor and TWO agents sniffing at her manuscript ! Can you believe that ? Cos I can’t.

-And now, she has the nerve to start up a thread taking the Humble Pie Line . .. where’s the sick bucket . . .and as for those other two, Ripe Tomatoes and PinkSocks.

Right. I have it. A new strategy. I shall back books endlessly for the next 6 hours – longer, if possible. And I shall encourage others to do the same . . on a thread. See what happens to their system gaming tactics THEN !
