During this time, users had to receive a invitation to be able to register, there was no open registration. Jonne received his invite from his friend aLxx (who sadly doesn't play anymore). At first he didn't understand much of the New world and stopped playing. After a month or so he started to play again. This time he registered on the official Swedish forum and later on joined The Swedish Military.
During this time, Jonne wasn't that much involved in what was going on around him. He was your typical two-clicker. After a while, he stopped playing (again). He wouldn't resume playing until somewhere around September of 2009. Just like before, he was two-clicking again and stacking up a nice pile of gold. During this time Jonne was currently living in Canada and training up his Land skills.
In May of 2010, Jonne moved back to Sweden and decided he was going to play the game more seriously, with this said he started to read the articles that showed up, read on the forum and sometimes visit Sweden's IRC channel #erepublik.se@quakenet
It would take until June of 2011 until Jonne had the courage to show up and talk to people on IRC. Nowadays he is idling there 24/7 and is known by some.
On the 29th of September, 2011 (eRep day 1408), Jonne received his first BH. It was a glorious day.
