SSW Now in Stealth Email mode.. well, to call it a "mode" is somewhat misleading, as it isn't a switch I can flip on and off, but given that this ghost is now running again, I figured a large number of old users wouldn't want mysterious emails showing up in their personal inboxes. To prevent this, I've manually disabled all of the automated emails sent out for birthday reminders, holidays and resets.
This doesn't affect your in-game PM's - as you'll notice, the Emperor sent you a happy Thanksgiving turkey sandwich a couple of days ago, and you'll find new birthday PM's in your Smailbox.
After thinking about how to convince TPTB to reopen the game (Money? Typewriter? Booze*), this best game ever is open again and if it hadn't been for an IGM in a game I currently do not play, I would not have known it to be open again.
