Editors note Daltonnn

Welcome to issue #78 of the Bootleggers Buzz!

"Did you know 8% of people have an extra rib?" is what my Editors Note page read when I opened the tab on the Buzz Control panel to make the Buzz ready for release. I have no idea if it is true, I certainly did not know it, but there you go. If you ever reach the final of a quiz and are asked a question about this then you will win. You are most welcome, I get 50% of your prize.

The Buzz we have for you this week has been brought to you by a very hard working Buzz Team, who were guided by a green guy for a change. With the resignation of ShyGuy, the responsibilities of editing have fallen on Daltonnn, and to help him get comfortable with his position it is an honor for me, Mika, to lend him a hand for a couple of weeks. Let it be clear that the Elite Guard has no interest to interfere with what the Buzz writes and how they do it. In two to three weeks, I will be gone again and will leave the Buzz in the very capable hands of Daltonnn entirely.

Well, what a week. One of the biggest, and possibly even the largest, statistics crew was wiped. This was Jailbreak Paradise, of course. Riverpenguin got the scoop for you! This week also saw the Summer Madness, a series of events that will gain you some extra money, bullets and booze because why not? It is summer after all, so enjoy! Daltonnn dug a bit deeper into the event to bring you a report on it.

Some players also noticed a change to the default topic for the forums, which should make them easier to open when you are playing on a mobile device. In case you need some tips regarding the matter then the column by Rob_Stark will be for you. Next to that is a report on the second crew wipe of this week: that of the Designated Drinkers.

Of course we have all our normal weekly articles lined up for you such as, but not limited to, Behind the Name and Once Upon A Time. This week, we also have what we hope will turn into a new weekly article: Behind the Crew. Please go and take a look and leave us both your opinion and a rating on the article so that we can use your feedback to improve!

Are you done reading the official Buzz articles? Scroll down a bit further for a freelance article and, last but not least, Ray's weekly Buzz comic.

It has been a true honor and a blast to work with the Buzz Team this week and to help with editing and setting up this issue. I would like to thank the entire team and will have everyone know that working for the Buzz is, to quote Barney Stinson, awesome! If you are thinking about joining then stop what you are doing and submit your application article today!

And now, the time has come for me to send Daltonnn a message so that he can publish the Buzz. Enjoy, leave comments, ratings and feedback and make sure you stay safe.
