Happy FooSummer Everyone!
Special Announcement from Dr. Ron
We hope you all are having a fantastic Summer so far, and are getting excited about going back to school if you are a student:). We have a very special update for you today, with a surprise announcement from Dr. Ron. Dr. Ron is excited to announce that as of today he will be coming back to work on FooPets full time! This will help get some kinks worked out and get some new upgrades going for you all. He has many ideas based on your suggestions, as well as some of his own ideas for the future! We cannot wait to see what you think about the changes, so keep those suggestions coming:).
FooCrew Site Status Report
Currently we are beta testing new code for the entire site that will help it run much faster with some new features. Therefore all suggestions are being considered even though you may not get a response in the suggestions forums. As a reminder, please note that the FooCrew makes decisions together and we do not make promises we cannot keep. This means the responses will always seem generic in the suggestion forum; just stay tuned to the next update to find out which ones we took! It also means we do not announce things until they are ready to be launched for the most part, however you should see more updates now that things might be happening quicker than you are used to:).
The Meebo chat replacement tool is still being worked on and we are hoping it will be done soon. We do not have any news on this for now, but we wanted you to know we are still working on it!
FooCrew Suggestions Procedures Reminder (re-post)
We have had a lot of members asking for updates and announcements lately, so we thought we would break down the procedures we use so that you understand we are not ignoring you. We love our members and your suggestions, we are just somewhat limited in how we respond sometimes and we wanted you to know why. This is the way it works:
FooCrew may or may not decide that we agree with the members suggestions. If the FooCrew decides a feature should be brought back, it then moves to the list of things to be done. Since our engineers never know what hiccups they will run into, we never announce things until they are done for the most part. The Meebo chat replacement was announced because we wanted you guys to know that we cared about replacing this feature for you based on the outcome of the survey, but most of the time you will not see announcements until we are ready to release things:). The engineers cannot even give us times most of the time, therefore we cannot give you ETA’s either. We are here and we are listening, we just don’t announce things and get you guys excited until we are close to going live or live already. We wanted you to know why we cannot give you timelines or sometimes even announce things(as they may not be do-able), we hope this helps you understand that we are not ignoring your requests for public updates.
FooMart Special Announcement
Back to School Mart Fun!
On the last Friday of August we will be celebrating back to school in the Mart with special deals from FooPets!! Be sure to keep a watchful eye out the entire day for these special items. They will be limited release so don’t miss out on the fun!
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 year so far, and as always thanks for playing!
