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.

technical problems

Monday, August 29th, 2005

i apologize if you have been having trouble using the site this past week or so (errors, images not loading, etc). i’m not sure what is going on but i hope to resolve it soon.

in pet news, i have been on the road, so i haven’t had much time to work on the new pet. sorry about that!

thanks for your patience.

small update for piczo and funtigo users

Thursday, August 4th, 2005

i know that some of you who are using piczo or funtigo sometimes have problems moving or deleting your pets from your website. i have now added new code for piczo and funtigo users on the codes page (the last step when you adopt a pet). if you use the piczo/funtigo code, you should now always be able to move and edit your pet!

in other news, i know there hasn’t been a new pet in a while. please be patient! i will be starting work on a new one soon. what kind of animal, you ask? it’s a secret :) thanks for your patience!

myspace code working again

Friday, July 22nd, 2005

i have fixed the myspace code! if you had problems putting your pet on your myspace earlier, please try again!

sorry about the inconvenience, and thanks everyone for your patience!

myspace code broken

Friday, July 22nd, 2005

apparently myspace made some change to their software, so the pets aren’t working on myspace any more. i will try to fix this as soon as i can. in the meantime, you can try to use the livejournal version of the code (unfortunately, this also means that your pet won’t be animated on your myspace page).

thanks for your patience! i hope to fix this as soon as possible!

[update: myspace code is now fixed!]

cyberpets offline briefly (UPDATE! back online)

Friday, June 10th, 2005

my apologies. i accidentally broke some of the cyberpet code. i have taken the adoption centre down while i fix the code.

i know some have you have adopted pets recently and they are not showing up. i will fix this soon!

sorry about that! thanks for your patience!

UPDATE! the adoption centre is now back online!

more characters in pet names

Thursday, June 9th, 2005

up till now, only the letters in the english alphabet were allowed in pet names and adopter names. this wasn’t so good if you wanted to use a name like “jrgen” or “pingino”.

anyway, now you can! here’s all the additional characters you can have in pet names:

i hope to support more alphabets in the future…

MSN spaces

Tuesday, May 24th, 2005

i have to apologize to users of msn spaces. i thought that the pets were working with msn spaces, but apparently they weren’t, for most of you!

anyway, when you adopt a pet now, and you get to the last page, you can scroll down and find a button for msn spaces. click that button, then go to your msn space, start a new blog entry, and paste (ctrl+v). your pet should appear directly in your post!

please let me know if it doesn’t work for you. i have only had time to do limited testing.

thanks everyone for your patience!
