On one hand, I really hope they never delete anything. On the other, there's the example of the Sims 2 site, where they deleted anything that hadn't been featured after a certain length of time.

Then again, Sims 2 stuff takes up a lot more space, too.

It's fun that you can do a rough estimate of how many europeans bought the game the last 4 days.

I saw the users/24hrs number rise from the broken release embargo till now. From when we first heard about that australian spore user till the broken release embargos here in belgium and holland, it went from 7000ish users to 12000/24 hrs.

The last two days it went up from 12-50k users. I think it's like that for 3 days already.

But you can't count the users who already have a spore account with the CC and use the same account when they purchase the game, like I did.

What would you say 300.000 copies sold already ? Or is there a greater number of people who cant/wont play online ?

I find it scary that it is going up at over a million a day, I mean a million, you can throw the number round all you like, it is still a HUGE number.

I have over 50 creatures, I only upload my best so each of these should be good. All my creatures work ingame, and are beliveable.

Please take a look at my sporecast of the Flob species:

Wow. The difference a week could make. A week ago we were standing at around 3,200,000. Now were just about at 7 million. Over a million in the past 24h.

I have a question that is a little off topic. Is there a way to get the Sporepedia in Spore to just download everything from the 7 000 000 creations? Or do' I need to subscribe to tons of Spocasts and get buddies?

If you are logged in then the default setting is for it to randomly download stuff other people have made. There are a few issues with the sporepedia at the moment though.

So what we up to now?  (My iPhone does not do so well on the Sporepedia when roaming.)

Noo. the crap thing about the in-game sporepedia is.. It counts every single thing you edit as a new creation.. and uploads it. Its retarded. I dont want a creature with a new mouth, and then, differnt eyes, and then a better mouth.

It's necessary so it also evolves on other players games...

I am logged in and it doesn't seem like it's downloading random stuff. It just downloads stuff from my 3 buddies and 2 sporecast. Anyone know if it's normal?

I'm assuming it puts priority with your buddies and sporecasts so you see them more often. Just a guess.

There's an option to only download from Buddies & Sporecasts, maybe you have it selected. Or maybe it gives priority to those and that's why you don't see random stuff.
