Hello, Peter!

We can't actually claim "longest running continuous online nomic game".
We're in third for that. Nomicron started about two months before we did,
and the longest running is Agora, which started nine or ten years before
we did, and so is now something like fifteen years old.

But we can certainly reboot the rules without destroying the game; indeed,
we've done things close to that a number of times, and we've actually done
that once (see
for the final version of that prop). I'd be in favor of doing that again,
maybe keeping some of the fundamental changes we've made since then but
throwing out all the extra bits of unused gameplay.
