Game things being actively worked on:
  • We're currently taking a little bit of a summer breather, and will return on actively working on the site features again in August.
Team discussion/planning has been revolving around:
  • Pygmies
  • A feature to be released in august
Technical things that have been fixed:
  • Small issues here and there
  • An adjustment to bots and crawlers so that they'll take up less resources on the site, this should help with some lag issues
Technical fixes being worked on:
A reminder that known bigger issues are listed in the Report Site Errors thread's first post. They are now also put approximately in order of which fixes will be worked on first.
  • Investigating trade issues where sometimes the pets aren't transferred even though a trade gets completed
  • Investigating an issue with gifting
  • Investigating some issues with donation system
  • Optimizing central parts of the site's code. Once this is done it should help make things load faster and also allow for using items, embedding multiple, and adding creatures to trades from other than the main tab.
