The Latest on Nitro Type

Where's TheCorndog Going??

Posted by Austin 12:34pm on 4/10/13 1154 Comments

Your fearless leader, [FTW]TheCorndog (that's me!) is leaving tomorrow for a very long trip on the other side of the world... And since I know how much you'll all miss me, I decided to leave you a few parting gifts..

Gifts you have to pay for!

This time around I'm just releasing 3 new vehicles - a SWEET Lamborghotti and two RADICAL motorcycles. These are the first motorcycles to hit Nitro Type (but not the last??), so hopefully they look good on the track.

Also, just because I love all my typists so much, and because I know sometimes you become frustrated and just want to blow up my whole website... Well now you can. At any point, type "destroynitrotype" into your keyboard, and have at it. Control your little destructor with the arrow keys and the Space Bar to shoot. What's the purpose, you ask? Nothing! Except complete annihilation of everything!

I hope you all enjoy, and I will check in on the blogs and forum occasionally (and maybe post some pics from my travels!), and my trusty staff and excellent moderators will be keeping everyone in check as always.

So long!

Edit: Also, I just went ahead and added "All Time" to the Site Stats in the scoreboard so you all can see as we grow. Remember, tell all your friends! Help Nitro Type take over the internet!

@[Kingz]Mario♛ How is your accuracy? If you are accurate, and don't make a lot of mistakes, I don't know why you are losing. But if you are not accurate, try hard to type with a steady speed and try not to make lots of mistakes. Hope this helps!!

@everyone A note regarding various people posting about their accounts getting hacked... Please, everyone, do not share your passwords under any circumstances.

All of this "hacking" has been between a small group of people who each share their passwords with each other. The accounts have not been hacked. One bad apple spoils the bunch.

So if you care about keeping your account, your cars, your money, etc, please keep your password to yourself. And be sure to have an email set in your "My Profile" so you can recover your password if you lose it.

[FTW]TheCorndog "The Founder"

Level: 25 Posted: 6/05/13 5:53pm

There's always a chance I'll bring the forums back of course. If so, I'd do something like adopt a 1 strike instant ban policy or something.

But the fact is that tens of thousands of people use Nitro Type per day, but only like 20 log into the forums.

@[∀╬﹃]☃▩✮⇛Alaskan⇚✮▩☃ Official clan support might be added in the future, but without a way to communicate with each other and recruit, the entire thing wouldn't work... So I'm not sure how clans can work without forums, period. We'll see.

Well, there is really a purpose for the forums anymore since the idea of clans is starting to disintigrate. That was its main purpose. As for a question.

How many of you think that I can get to 7,500 achievement points by the end of summer? Maybe 8,000.

@[FTW]TheCorndog I can't wait...and while you're at it with the 50% bonus, why don't you add that to the nitro rewards! If second place only gave one but winning gave you three, I wonder if people would type faster...

@[TP]CarriePirc What's wrong with having them this week? The earlier the better!

@Jshim1000 Definitely! Just go through your achievements page and make sure that you haven't missed any easy ones, then just make a list of the ones you are closest to and shoot for those. Big sessions get you a lot of points, and the summer achievements will easily get you there. I think you can have at least 9,000 by then ;)

@everybody Yes, the forums are down. No need to point that out, as [FTW]TheCorndog said it and has also said that they might go back up. Until then, try to keep clan stuff off the news as well as you can.

1. I am using google chrome
2. This happens in my garage
3. In my garage i had the Party Sleigh selected
4. i clicked on my Xmaxx tree and drug it to the other side
now it didn't move the entire vehicle with the name just the car in a light color but then when i unclicked it went back to the original space.

I am excited about this because this was my idea in the NT forums

@≶₪ҭጢ≷✡☣JΩhn☣✡ The reason your post did not show was because about half of it was about clan business. All clan posts will be deleted. Unfortunately if I let one through, I really have to let everyone talk about clans, which leads to a flood of spam.
