If I summon Henry, he will become my minion.

If I fail, ScarletBea has to make a GR account.

What do you guys think?

Nope. I've been there, but deleted my account a few years ago. If you want to snoop my books, use my LT link to the left :P

I agree. If Henry shows up. Although she'll probably tell him not too so she doesn't have to create an account. :P

But it's a crooked bet - Lanko will never be able to summon Henry, so I would always loose >:(

And sending a message to whom?? I can message you guys here :D

It's not about sending a message, it's about a special place!

That's sad, makes it almost completely pointless.  :'(
No, it doesn't - I like seeing "Profile [number higher than 1]" and then slowly go through all the unread posts, wondering which one will have the prize. If I got the mail, I'd automatically know, it would remove the thrill ;D
Mine stays stuck at Profile [5] even though I've read all messages. In retaliation, I pretend the damn thing isn't there.  >:(
I wish the world was flat like the old days, then I could travel just by folding a map.

I moved Lanko's post into a separate topic, stickied it and locked it. If was thinking if we keep using this discussion to add people, but update over there the list won't get lost or buried. :)

Well thought. Now we all just have to send a message to ScarletBea so she makes at least a token account in there.

Haha, I have the same issue. I'm not certain how to make the Profile number decrease, even after clicking the posts (supposedly) so I've simply internalized the number and will check if it increases.

What are you trying to compare I hope it's books  :D

Press on your friend icon on top right of page next to inbox icon, then a list of your friends should appear and next to their name a link to compare books should be there
