What's up next for Impressions?
n update posted yesterday to Impressions' main site has dropped a hint as to when we might find out what they're working on next:
A local film crew paid us a visit, and while they were here we let them in on a little secret: the title of our next game. What could it be? We're still not ready to tell everyone our little secret yet, but all shall be revealed soon. Stay tuned.
By the way, if you live in the New England area and have AT&T Cable, you can see Impressions Games at work on the October 18 edition of "Chowdah." The show airs at 7:30 p.m. on AT&T 3.

Deadline Extended - Alexandria 3 Contest
t the semi-regular Mexican Food and Margarita Lunch in Texas today, homegrown put forth the idea of extending the deadline for the Alexandria 3 Beauty Contest to October 13, 2001. Cherub Bradius, Cherub Brugle and yours truly paused briefly over our enchiladas and then heartily endorsed his idea. No pictures of the event, no one brought a camera and we are too shy, anyway
A bit of extra time to polish up that entry is always welcome. Check out the rules and requirements over at the Competition Corner.

User database merger approaching
ime for a bit of a technical talk.
A long time ago we started with two separate databases, one for the Citybuilders and one for Age of Kings (and all that followed after). Now we've passed the stage where this was needed and the Powers Above (i.e. Zen) will be merging the two databases.
To make sure you'll still be with us after the merger he asks you to make certain that your email address (as written in your profile)is:
... and most importantly, an account that you check regularly for mail.
- an active account (i.e. we regularly get bounced emails from inactive hotmail users)
- not filtered (i.e. AOL members sometimes might have too high of a restriction on their mail and thus resulting in forum emails being bounced)
- not "overquota" (i.e. full mailbox)
We'll be send out more details about the forum user database merge later in the month. Not being able to read these emails and follow the instructions contained in them could possibly result in your account being renamed or purged during the merge.
