Maybe when a game first comes out about a hundred? I don't know. Plus, there probably are a lot of people who know about these games, but don't register on these forums. A question from me: How many people do you think know about Spiderweb Software and their games?

Hmmmmm, good question. We know at least 3,000 something people know, because there's more than that on the boards. (Not factoring in the multiple accounts under one name) figgure something like every 10 people there's one that signs up, I dunno, I'm making up numbers now. :D It's a really good question though. Oh and I didn't mean reg on the board, I mean like as in buying the games.

Since it takes a few days to week to ship everyone their game when a new one comes out, I'd say 100-1000 games per day. Normally, not that much. Perhaps you should ask Jeff. :P

If you only need to receive the registration code, it can take no more than a day if there aren't a lot of people ordering. My guess is that Jeff can send several hundred registration codes a day (if he does it manually), but it seems like a lot. To be honest, I have no idea.

I guess the number of orders depends on how many people know the company and have bought games before. I'm sure Exile 3 sold better than Exile for example.

Well, Arancaytar is right. But I think it also is how much registered receivements he gets per day. They want you to give your e-mail address for a specific reason. So they can SELL your name!!! Just kidding. Cause they can immediately e-mail you giving you the registration code. Huh. How about this. How many people do you thik register a day for exile1, 2, and 3?

I wouldn't think those games are registered on a regular basis, with the Avernum games out and Blades (hopefully) coming out sometime next fall.

Um, has anyone asked Jeff yet? The only one here who would have a chance of knowing is Drakey, and Jeff is still a better person to ask...

I think Jeff's mentioned that his older games are still being registered at a relatively constant rate (although not as often as when they first came out, of course.) As for exact figures, I wouldn't have a clue.

I believe there are 15 747 724 136 275 002 577 105 653 961 181 555 468 044 717 914 527 116 709 366 231 425 076 185 631 031 296 protons in the universe, and the same number of electrons. -- Sir Arthur Eddington

It would be bad manners to ask Jeff. We can only make an educated guess therefore.

I remember (on the Ikonboard, I think) someone suggesting that since Exile: EFTP was so old, maybe the price should be knocked down a little, seeing as it was the same cost as Exile III. The member was rebuked and the idea was never brought up again. Happy times.

This forum has 3,000-odd contributors and has been going for years. Not everyone on its registered, but not everyone registered is on it. I suggest dozens a day registering is more likely than hundreds or thousands. Jeff isn't going to be a millionaire this way - all the more reason not to rip him off.

Hey, who said he wants to be famous? He just wants to make games for us and for him. (Hopefully) Wouldn't want him to lose interest in his own games. :P
