Yeah thanks very much for the info RAWA - nice to see you still around and reading our drivel, oh, and serious points too! ;)

Now how about a CAVECON indicator on in this site's header - bit like a thermometer, or traffic lights like wot you see in War Games .....ooh,ooh... why not return the Dalek to the ferry docks and have it indicate the CAVECON value :shock:

Be more use than the amount of lake-lightening.....

Now I'm gonna join all the others running away from rotten tomatoes and bottles and cans :D

:D Thank you, RAWA. This is so heartening to hear. And didn't we know all this time in our hearts that we could do this, given the chance?

The challenge is to get to 5 and keep it going.

Heck, let's make this thing go to 11! :wink:

This is very useful, RAWA - thanks for sharing this data. Much more useful than pellet dropping stats, IMHO.

On that note, I wonder if we could produce a 'spike' similar to Tai'lahr's pellet points blitz experiment performed in February 2008? There's at least two things we can try:

- All participants enter the cavern at least once each day for a week. This should cause a spike in the logins, and is relatively easy to do (and free)
- All participants chip in another US$5-10 at some point during the week. This should cause a jump in CAVCON level, but is more costly

I wonder, should we be starting a fundraising (or spike-creation) ideas thread?

And another (serious) question I thought of... Are these CAVCON status messages going to come on a schedule? I see that the first two reports are a week apart. Will we continue to get reports every week?

This is the best incentive there is for further donations.

Would it be possible further down the line to donate for something specific? Fixing the Minkata sparklie comes to mind.

I would love to donate to a "fireworks fund" to fix the Minkata sparklie. I wonder if RAWA would dare commit to a goal for how much money would be needed to fix that bug. :wink:

Am I right in supposing that multiple months at CAVCON 4 would necessarily put us at CAVCON 5?

That was my deduction as well. As long as CAVCON stays above level 3, something good should be bound to come out of it, eventually, right?

11? What's that for a goal? It's D'ni we're talking about... we're going straight up to 25! 8)

Like a bake sale, maybe? Cavern Cookies. Ask for them by name!

What about a Cavern-hosted Q&A with Rand Miller, like at Mysterium 2009? Only 50 seats available! :wink:

Excellent thread, thanks RAWA.
It's also nice to hear that for the time being URU Live is safe and donations are helping :)
