Editors note MissNyx

First, I'd like to start off by saying this is this way for a reason. No, we did not mess up. Perhaps we are just trying to mess around with you a bit on this prankster's delight of a day!

This week, we saw a decent amount happen in the game, most revolving around the new promotions of three HDOs. Congratulations, followed by speculation, doubt and assumptions filled the Game Forum during this time about the promotions-- nothing new there.

Also, for the first time this reset, have we had a huge lottery winner such as the winner this week, wining a prize reward of over $20,000,000!

As always, we have our weekly additions to the edition (har har, what a play on words! I love homophones!) This week, Nyxxie has chosen 3 victims for her "Behind the Name" and Franchise blurts out his blunt honesty and opinions in his "Franny Being Franny" column.

$150,000 was sent to Beggsy today after winning Buzz Contest #5 and there is a new contest this week with the same prize amount!

If you wish to be a buzz writer and think you have the experience and skills necessary (minding your spelling, grammar, punctuation and choice of article), please send your article sample to Air and I through our email address, Please be patient as we look over them once very two weeks.
