Hey, you. Don't use untrusted scripts!
Server time10/12/2018

There are currently two malicious scripts available that we know of, that presents themselves as harmless, but instead does something bad to you. One kicks you out of your band, and the other one makes it possible for a person to steal money from you (after they have befriended you).

There's nothing we can do to prevent these scripts, so it's up to you to be careful.

In general, we do not promote the use of scripts at all. At the best, they cause us "just" a few extra bug reports, but some scripts use up so much resources from our servers that they are the reason the game is slow at times. Since we really cannot prevent you from using scripts, you should consider to only use those you can get from a trusted source (like Popodeus).

Have a nice weekend, people, and stay safe!

PS. Don't use scripts.

Daft Punk has released some great albums over the years, but there's one in particular that gets played a lot when one of us needs to concentrate a bit extra. Hint: it helps him to picture clusters of information as they move through the computer. Yes, we really are that nerdy some times.
