Haha so true.  Alej44, this project is as much about the game and the community aspect as it is about anything else.  You should try to enjoy it, and treat it like a puzzle. 

Think up some ideas, try them, and if you really get stuck, go search the Backroom, all the solutions have already been posted somewhere in there.

...too close for missiles.  I'm switching to guns.

If Billy isn't responding favorably, make sure you mention the right people (specifically Arn), and make sure you write him more than a line or two. If you're just sending him short replies, he's not going to trust you.

Treating him like a real person is key.  What SubFuze posted above me is even more important, as well.  You have a lot of help in the forums, just search around.

there is one really great way to gain his trust, but I don't want to say exactly what it is in case they decide to make it work against you.  I'm really just writing this to see what my avatar looks like.
