Happy Almost Summer Everyone!
Random Stat Pet Release
Our special events over the Holidays last year included the release of several special stat pets! Your FooAmbassadors will be announcing contests to continue this, and they will come out of the Adoption Center so that everyone has a chance to adopt them. We hope you liked these contests, because the FooAmbassadors work so hard on them:).
Increase in Prize Amounts
The prizes being offered for contests will be increasing! Be sure to watch the contest forums for other fun contests and prizes hosted by your FooAmbassadors!
Stay tuned for some exciting things in the FooMart coming soon! A special thanks to all of our members who have submitted items and backgrounds to the mart, we have really enjoyed working with them and we cannot wait to see what you come up with this Summer.
FooCrew Site Status Report
We are still working on the new chat tool as you all know, we do not have any time frame expectations we want to announce as of now due to the challenges in implementing this new system. Thanks for your patience with this, we will keep you updated on our progress!
There are two situations we would like to address for you all to pay special attention to an the first one is flagging. We have had multiple reports of the flagging system being abused. This is a friendly reminder to follow the rules of the site, and that means do not abuse the flagging system. As with anything, think about how this effects your fellow members and how it would affect you if you were on the other end. Let’s come up with ways to have fun with each other, instead of thinking of ways to irritate one another and I bet we will all have more fun!
The other issue we wanted to talk to you about is pet limits. In the past the limit has been 50 pets per account. We have had several members reporting random glitches happening all over the site for them when they are logged onto these accounts with 50+ pets. These glitches are absolutely because they are way over the pet limit. We want to remind you all that being over the limit affects everyone, because when you do things it causes the site to move very slowly due to the amount of pets you have it is placing a lot of demands on our servers. Now imagine thousands of users pulling on our servers for data like that, and you will understand why the frequent issues with slowness occur. Dr. Ron advises having less than ten pets for optimal fast site performance, as the accounts were never intended to hold more than 50 pets and we now have many users over that limit by a long shot. We will not be implementing restrictions on pet limits (at this time), just know that if you are over the limit you are not going to have an optimal playing experience and it will affect your fellow members. If the pet limits continue to cause problems, we may move to a rule change on this pending member input. This would only be to allow for site efficiency for everyone; and therefore the pet limit rules could change at that time. If we do need to have a discussion about this; then at that time we will put a survey out and get your responses on this topic:).
As always, please know that 90% of what we do with our thin crew is just keeping the site running, this means that upgrades will continue to come slowly but we are working just as fast as we can. We hope you are having a great start to your Summer Holiday so far, and as always thanks for playing!
