I wouldn't care about full or partial wipes at this point, I can't even remember what my pets look like since it's been so long since any of that worked properly. Do whatchu gotta do to get things in working order again. I am on the firm side of eliminating the possibility of anybody trying to steal my username, though, since this is a username I am heavily invested in keeping throughout all my pet sites and general internet usage.
As far as the other topics, I am personally only invested in the art/RP side of the site as of now. Whatever you plan to do with the battle system/territory system and all that jazz, I have full trust that it will work out in the end. When the topic of wearables and dyes/markings and other art-related content comes up again, I'll return with a bunch of feedback. :D
I'm really anxious to see the entirety of the new species.... will deer/raptors still be a thing? They were so cool! I have a deer AND a raptor clan.
Also, will each type of character retain a unique pose? Will we be able to generate customs still?
Looking forwards to the idea of mixed clans.... was pretty mad that that was a premium-only feature originally, when they touted so many unique species and then capped users at two accounts, rendering it impossible to truly be invested in the different species without paying. I went deer on one, raptors on the other, though I switched a lot before deciding on those two.
Also, some of us joined at the time that we did for a good reason: we were told that we'd be able to earn and keep our pre-alpha vista if we met certain requirements by a specific date. Will this still be a thing? (It was 200 posts I believe, by a date in mid-2015).Many usersworked rather hard to get it andare going to be sorely upset ifthey lose it.
I'm looking forwards to the progress, but I'm also wary about some of this, due to the fact that much of what you're discussing changing is a part of the reason I became so invested in the site in the first place.
Also, we were told that our vistas were linked to our emails, and that our email would allow us to get that back; everyone is EXPECTING a wipe before release.... but we're also expecting our vistas, if that makes sense?
- Preserve accounts that have been active since the announcement last December and clear the rest
I'd hate to lose this account name when I've had it for so long now!
Also, will the wipe include our vistas and post count?
