Our Birthday Event has Begun!

Our 2017 Eldemore Birthday Event has begun! Eldemore officially turns 4 years old this month, and we're celebrating by releasing a bunch of new pets and items over the coming days! You can get started by going to the B-Day Event page. We've also got a special new Festive Phoenix and an epic pet pack in the Bazaar. For more information, check out the Official Event Thread.

Enjoy the festivities, and happy birthday Eldemore!

An update -

Zayin wrote:Hey everyone, I am here to announce that effective December 1st, 2017, Eldemore is officially going on a hiatus until our new site is ready. That means we will be taking a break from doing any releases, events, or raffles until our new site revamp is ready to go. This is so that we can focus our efforts completely on the new site and not have to also work on maintaining this one and doing releases and events at the same time. The best timetable I can give is that I’m shooting for a relaunch in the latter part of 2018. As development goes on, that may change.

The site will continue to operate, and there will be a final monthly release for December, but there will be no Yuletide event. You will still be able to log in, use the forums, Codex, and trade with others. We may still release a couple of free things here and there, but there will be no regular releases, no raffles, no birthday releases, and no events. Incidentally, we’re also trimming our staff down to only a few key members to help us moderate forums and trading.

In an effort to ease skepticism about the new site, and remind everyone that we’re still alive, I will be starting a development blog in January, probably on the forums here. There, I will continue to provide regular updates so that everyone who’s curious will know how things are coming along, and that development is still happening.

I’m sorry this had to be done, but it’s really the only way for Eldemore to make progress in its modernization effort, which will be an epic improvement over the site we have now. I hope you all understand that it’s necessary, and will stick around for our eventual relaunch, which as I said, we’re shooting for later next year. I promise to provide you with regular updates starting in January, which I will highlight on the main News page when they are posted.

If you have any questions, feel free to post them here and I will respond when I get the chance. I will keep track of Q&A in the post right below this one.

Thanks again to all of you who continue to stick with us and love Eldemore! We’ll be back.

---------------------------------

PS, here is a screenshot of what I've been working on recently. Obviously, this is totally bare bones and going to change, but I think you all deserve to see something:

Also, there will be a birthday release on November 26th, which we will post on the front page.

Will our pets be transferred over to the new site or will we all be starting from scratch?

Yes, absolutely. Your account, pets, posts, baubles and all will still be here when you return.

If people stopped checking in, would there be a way to notify them about the new site going online? It also seems strange that the building would take almost a year, but i have no experience with programming or maintaining a website. What will the bulk of the time be spent on? This is purely curiosity and you don't have to answer.

In the couple of months before relaunch, we will engage in a "get the word out" campaign to let everyone know. I also have the ability to send an email to everyone who's signed up, and we'll post updates about it here on the site.

As for development, the main reason it takes so long is because I have a full time job. I have to work on this in my spare time and on weekends. And to do it right and implement all the same features we have now, plus the new ones we want, all pretty much from scratch, will take time and diligence.

Will there be any Bazaar releases?

No, we aren't going to put anything new out in the Bazaar either. We will leave the item sets and extras though, and the ability to purchase baubles will remain.

Will the new site feature the release of the features like item trading, Thorn's Cottage and Bastion's Heart?

Yes, definitely item trading, and Thorn's Cottage/Bastion's Heart in some form as well.

Is there any other sites you would recommend to help satiate our pet-collecting appetite until the re-launch?


A few great places to enjoy a similar experience while we work on the new site can be visited below~

Gothicat World

Flight Rising

Magistream

Chicken Smoothie

Subeta

Dragon Cave

If there are some freebies released will they be left up for the term of downtime or limited and if so what might be the expected duration?

You might want to check in on Christmas, New Years, etc. Whatever we release will be left up for a reasonable amount of time (not a single day or anything), but not the full duration of the break.

Okay, so will there be adopts on Dec 1st or not? Why not just wait until the new year to start it?

Yes, there will be monthly releases for December, those will be the last for now. That's just the timing that worked out best, I didn't want to engage in another event right now because it would ultimately set us back from our long term goals, which are more important to the future of the site.

I noticed in the archives every anniversary has a glasswork representing the site's progress, such as the beta glasswork, delta 1, etc. Will one be released next year, too, or will there be a year missing in the collection?

We kind of fell off that wagon this year, but I'm hoping we can continue the tradition next year. It all depends on when we come back up, so we'll have to cross that bridge when we reach it.

Do you have a list of features that will be added or things that will be changed? It would be kind of nice to know what we have to look forward to.

Basically, the whole site is being re-written. Layout and theme will be changing, numerous convenience/quality of life features will be added, and we're looking at also adding item trading and a re-release system like Thorn's Cottage and/or Bastion's Heart. There's more stuff that we're discussing internally, but I can't go into any of that until it's definitive.

Also, will there be a way to switch the background back to what it is now in board preferences? The art at the top is lovely, and the palette in the forums very well put-together.

You can see a preview in the Screenshot I posted. The colors you see there are likely going to change because we haven't nailed down our color scheme quite yet. Rest assured though, we are quite fond of the above art as well, so I'm hoping art like that can play a bigger role in our new site's design. And yes, we will have multiple themes probably a while after the initial launch.
