It’s something which I am sure we have all wondered at some time in our time in YoVille. Many will not admit to wondering. They will respond with things like “I’m not interested” and “they are only Zynga staff”, but I’m not so sure. I challenge anyone to say that the thought has not crossed their mind, if only for a second or two.
So, who are these elusive ninjas? Why are they even called that? We learn, from various sources, that ninjas were oriental warriors from days gone by. Swathed in dark robes, expert in the martial arts of the East. The younger YoVillians may envisage modern day movie ninjas like Richard Harrison. Now I am sorry, but when I read a post by a forum ninja, that really is the last image which comes to mind!
YoVille ninjas are moderators. Despite the claims of one or two individuals who claim that ninjas are just message board posters, they are actually paid employees of Zynga. I have also learned that most of them tend to work part-time from home.
This scant information has led me to spend a lot of time pondering things, like do they use their own pcs and laptops, or does Zynga supply equipment to enable them to do their jobs? Are they young people, middle-aged people,or pensioners? I have even wondered whether they are Americans, British, Asian or extraterrestrial. In the end, I knew that I had to find out for myself, one way or other. It would mean infiltrating a ninja home and getting the necessary evidence, but I knew that it was something which I had to do, to finally put my doubts to rest.
In the late hours of the night I set off, flash light, camera, bugging device, and butterfly net in hand. I did want something a bit bigger, but I had run out of YoCash! I found a ninja home and as luck would have it, a downstairs window was open, so I was able to sneak inside undetected. I set up my equipment and hid behind a curtain and waited!
At long last a ninja appeared. I knew it was a genuine ninja because he was muttering “not another when will we get an open all button thread’! I wanted to sneeze. Well, I wanted the bathroom too, but that’s another matter! Luckily I managed to stay still long enough to get my evidence. I waited until the ninja had finished closing 50 threads, then while he stomped off cussing to himself, I gathered up my equipment and climbed out through the window again. It was time to go home and examine my photo…
And here it is! A genuine picture of a ninja, complete with state-of-the art Zynga technology – a late 1960′s reconditioned Russian Laptopamabob!
