The shuffle has now taken place and the universe is ready to go.
All galaxies now have 2 buddy packs in them and between 14 and 15 planets in total.
We have 17 clusters each with 9 or 10 galaxies.
The shuffle turned out precisely as anticipated and took only 50s to complete.
Despite earlier rumours of our demise, that was indeed an April Fools joke and we will resume ticking as usual, 1 tick per hour, at 9am GMT.
As stated previously it is now not possible to join a buddy pack and all galaxies have now been created. New signups will join existing galaxies.
Have fun and welcome to your new homes.
