This is how it ends.

New features this week: Nothing. We’re going to be rolling out a suite of questionably functional things for a basketball game sometime later.

FAQ:

The yellow/ orange bar is your mana. 
Sending messages costs mana. 
Messages cost more, the more active chat is. 
The red dudes on the side bar are lives remaining.

If you break the Board Rules, you lose a life. Lose three lives and you have to insert a quarter into your monitor. No no keep trying it, it’ll go in. As always, the Liveblog Chaos Mitigation Post is The Law.

New features this week: We apologize for the fault in the photon torpedoes, which apparently weren’t working so well after all. Our investigators are looking into the cause of the malfunction and the families of the casualties will be taken care of.

The delay function hasn’t killed anybody yet. Given there should be a large number of people streaming this or watching with a short delay for their DVRs it might actually be productive to use it.

New features this week: Photon torpedoes are working! (Proton torpedoes are still a work in progress so we are stuck with terribly slow, easy to dodge bursts of orange light).

Also the delay function still works. See the settings button next to your three little men? Go there, and change that to however many seconds you need.

New features this week: Bobby tweaked the mana and focused on some bugs, for example the universal translator now picks up Breen. I used the new DELAY function for Rutgers because my stream was about 1 minute off—it was good for protecting me but makes it hard to participate in the liveblog.

To use it, see the settings button next to your three little men. Go there, and change that to however many seconds you need.

Bobby has some new features for us, most of them on the admin side, but there’s one you should definitely check out, especially if you’re streaming: a DELAY function. See the settings button next to your three little men. Go there, and change that to however many seconds you need to not have people all going AAAHHHHHHHH! when your set still has Jourdan Lewis apparently subject to gravity.

Thanks to BOBBY for making us liveblog software. We are slowly rolling out more features and are working through the the priority tree of issues. Last week was the transparent aluminum, and quick thought: why did Scotty need transparent aluminum? Wouldn’t six-inch Plexiglass have been fine on that spaceship? It seems unnecessarily fancy to make a plastics manufacturer from the mid-’80s invent a non-polymer clear plastic instead of just dealing with some old fashioned heavy plastic windows. I mean, okay, if you need to give the guy a small leg up on his competition in payment that’s understandable, but then give him something you know was invented shortly after, like light-emitting poly-ethyne or something. And don’t give me “How do we know he didn’t invent it?” because these characters lived centuries after the invention of the internet.

That said, if you notice anything else missing, put them in the comments on this article so the liveblog stays clear of meta.

Thanks to BOBBY for making us liveblog software. We are slowly rolling out more features and are working through the the priority tree of issues. For example several thousand Trekkies complained of a lack of PHOTON torpedoes so now the liveblog has those as well as the PROTON torpedoes. We here at MGoBlog aim to serve. If you notice anything else missing, put them in the comments on this article so the liveblog stays clear of meta.
