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.)
