Hello Edometheus. If you want to join the game, you just need to post a blog entry announcing your arrival, so that we can add you as a player. The votes you’re casting at the moment are illegal, as you aren’t yet an official player.
And while I’m here; all the user links in comments are pointing to my profile, for some reason. I don’t think this was the case a couple of days ago - has someone been careless with a template?
