Hello :)
« on: July 26, 2006, 08:14:35 pm »
I am Imagine. I came over from EI. :) I am waiting to get accepted onto the game. It looks and sounds like a lot of fun.

About me... I'm 16, female, from upstate New York. I do not own a horse, but I do ride. ;D I'm currently looking at a Thoroughbred bay mare to buy. I'm going to try her out tomorrow after my lesson. Woot!

EI?  Which game is that?

Unless you're talking about the Eastern Indies or Eastern Idaho (or Iowa) or something like that. :-P Welcome!

Welcome!  You'll have a great time in this game.  Whereabouts in upstate do you live?  I'm in upstate NY also, which is why I ask, it's fun to see people who are from my area!

Yep, Cricket - EI stands for Equintium. If you'd like a link, just ask me!

Sarah - I live about 30 minutes away from Saratoga and then 45 minutes to an hour away from Albany. What about you?

Thanks for welcoming me, everyone! ;D

Ah cool :)  Not to close to me though, I'm in Ithaca.  Sort of in the middle of nowhere, but I like it anyway.

Ooooh, Ithaca is cool! ;D My friend's horse was sent to Cornell as a donation. He had breathing problems. But, Cornell had to put him down. :'(

Welcome to the game! This is the most realistic game I've ever played, and don't let the waiting list intimidate you. Not only is the game worth it, I was supposed to join in February next year and I actually joined late July. So it's not as long as you may think.  ;)

5 days after you applied for the game? That's not fair.  :( I was s'posed to get accepted in April of 2007, too, and I still haven't gotten accepted. I've been waiting for, like, 2 weeks now. :-\

Don't get impatient. I waited for over 2 months and I had less players ahead of me on the list. It'll happen some day. :)

I hope so. I don't see why we have to wait, anyhow. :( I just really want to play. I only play one other SIM horse game. I love it, but I do want something new. -sigh-

Believe it or not, we didn't just make up the waiting list to torture people.  Those of us who were here before the game really starting booming, and even those who had been on a waiting list, but have been here for a while, really apreciate the small community feeling of the game.  We voted on the idea, and on the size of the list.  None of us want to have a place like Horseland where you can't get help and you don't know anyone.  None of us want to be swamped with names that we can't place.   We all want to feel like a close community.  And we do.  That is the reason behind the waiting list and once you join, I'm sure you'll understand why we want to preserve that feeling for this game.   ;)

That's very true. Horseland can't even function correctly because it's overloaded. But, I dunno... I've always hated waiting lists. Until I actually got on. Haha. But, waiting lists may discourage people from joining. I wasn't going to join because of it, but my friend insisted that I did. Also, say that I get accepted in December... looooooooooong ways off. I may not even be interested by then because I had waited so long. I have low patience. :P

But, anyway... I've got to go check on my laundry. Am going away this weekend to train horses. See you all Monday!

If that's the case, that's fine.  The current waiting list is almost long enough to allow for 2 more "copies" of FF at full membership, so I'm not really looking for more people.  :P

Well, either you'll wait, or you won't.  Like I said, there're over 250 other people willing to take your spot.

No, no; I'm gonna wait. At least until I get sick of waiting. Lol.

I'm not sick of waiting right now; just... impatient. But, it'll pass. It always does.

That waiting list kind of serves to weed out the impatient, and you really can't be impatient in this game the time line is RL so things take a while ;)

Gah... I know how hard it is to wait. :( I've been put on waiting lists a few times in the past, and I thought I would lose interest too. But if you wait long enough, the reward for the wait is so, so, sooo worth it. You will not believe how awesome this game is, or the people that play it! You will feel sooooo proud of your horses when they run for you, and if they win, you'll feel like dancing (I know I do x3)! Okay, I might sound like I'm going overboard (and I am... XD) but... er.. yeah.

-hug- You'll be here before you know it. (And just to add my totally useless two cents, horseland is awful the way it is now... As a former member of the game, I can tell you, it just got to the point of not even being fun anymore... I was horrified by the number of people getting their accounts stolen by greedy people... It was sad. One day I just gave it up. I haven't been back since. :/  -sigh- anyway...) Take care, and try to be patient a little longer ;P

I really like the small community. As everyone has said; it's much easier to make friends and get help. Even though Horseland's swamped with members, you sorta feel.. alone. So, I think I would have voted for a waiting list too, had I been playing that long ago.

Isn't it kind of ironic that the less players are in a game, the less alone you feel and the more friends you make? Heh, heh.. I just noticed that.  ;D
