@krinkle long enough that we formed a mini team of people to work together to try and solve it lol. i think we played for a couple months and quit at level 60 some-odd. That was back in like, spring of '07.
A community that offers a safe space for people to share their personal lives online (again). Social media doesn't have to be about only showing the best of you, all the time -- finding support and community for your struggles, small and big, is a cause worth pursuing.
