wolves

Thursday, January 19th, 2006

a lot of you have asked for wolves over the past year or so. they are now finally available for adoption.

and a late happy new year to everyone! sorry i’ve been so quiet recently. i’ll try to keep in touch more often!

penguin gets a fish!

Friday, December 9th, 2005

the penguin now has a fish you can feed it. it will catch the fish in midair, unless you interrupt it with a poke to the stomach!

all existing penguins will automatically be updated to include the fish, although it may take up to 12 hours from now.

status report: pets not showing up [FIXED!]

Friday, December 2nd, 2005

UPDATE! the problem seems to be fixed now. thanks for your patience!

hi all! i realize that for many of you your pets are not showing up. i seem to be having some problems with the pet servers. i will try to resolve it as soon as possible! when it gets fixed your pets will show up again.

sorry for the inconvenience!

animated pets work on myspace again… i think

Tuesday, November 8th, 2005

as i write this, it appears that animated pets are working on myspace again! let’s see how long it lasts this time. cross your fingers! :) and thank you, everyone, for your patience with this.

myspace problem

Tuesday, November 1st, 2005

hi! it seems that myspace has blocked the codes for the animated pets. if you already have an animated pet on your myspace, it will still work, but if you edit it or try to adopt a new one, it won’t work.

as a temporary workaround, you can still use the “livejournal” version of the code on your myspace, but in that case, your pet won’t move on your page, and you have to click on it to play with it. (to get the ‘livejournal’ version of the code, just adopt your pet as normal, and then scroll down to where it says “if you have a livejournal…” and use that code.)

i will see if it’s possible to get around this new restriction!

sorry for the inconvenience, and thanks for your patience!

(update: some more information is available at the myspace forums)

(update 2: you can still have animated pets on your myspace blog… just not on your profile.)

(update 3: official from myspace: tom says “Latest Update: 10:19AM PST, Sat, Nov 05. Lots of people have asked me about the EMBED tag and videos … we had to disable this temporarily and it’ll be back some time next week. sorry for the inconvenience :)

hopefully, sometime next week, pets will be working again. all we can do is wait and see.)

spiders!

Monday, October 31st, 2005

we now have spiders up for adoption! i’d hoped to get these out earlier (before hallowe’en), but better late than never, right?

anyway, you can watch the spider spin a web (it’s different every time!) and feed it flies.

this is our first “spooky” pet. expect more spooky pets in the future!

happy hallowe’en everyone!

server problems again

Tuesday, October 25th, 2005

sorry!!! i know the pets aren’t working again at the moment. i’ll be bringing a new server online soon, hopefully that will help. meanwhile the pets may be hit and miss for the rest of the evening.

sorry about that!

bunny update in progress!

Wednesday, October 5th, 2005

if you adopt a bunny now, you will see that it has a carrot to eat! however, on your web page, you may find that the carrot is not always there. this is because the change can take up to 12 hours to propagate to the coral mirror sites. please be patient… eventually every bunny will get a carrot, all the time :)

in related news, i apologize if the pets in general are taking a long time to show up on your websites (especially myspace). i hope to make a change soon that should somewhat improve the reliability of your pets appearing.
