Server Maintenance Tonight
Server maintenance was completed successfully! Have a wonderful day! ❤
Just a quick heads up, I will be temporarily bringing the site down to do some important server-side updates.
The site will be down from Midnight US-East (7 hours and 45 minutes from this post) until 12:30am at the latest, although most likely will be back up by 12:10.
There shouldn't be any huge differences in site experience, but if you notice any strange issues afterward, please let us know in Help & Support!
Starter Items Update
We've got a couple new updates for you today:
First, we've made some adjustments to the freebie starter items Pandora Pants and Pandora Skirts, to make both work correctly with either avatar gender. Now you can strut your stuff how ever you want! :D
Bigger news, though, is a new update to all of the freebie starter items! Effective immediately, they've been removed from the shops, and now you can automatically find them in your items list in the Avatar Editor. Should hopefully make it much easier to get going with customizing your looks! :)
An option has also been added to the editor (under the ... menu) to hide Starter Items from your inventory if you don't want to see them while working on your latest style.
If you run into any issues with this, or want to provide some feedback, head on over to Avatar Editor Discussion & Updates, and I'll address any concerns!
In Memory of Glitch
Many of you may have heard the news by now, but it is important that we officially say something about it:
Glitch, our amazing pixel artist who has brought us all the majority of the fine works of the site for several years now, has passed away. She died On September 22nd, after suffering from a ruptured aorta.
She was an amazing individual: A wonderful friend, diligent artist, and caring mother. She will be missed by all, though none more than her loving husband and two children.
Her family has set up a fundraising campaign to help them in this difficult time, and if you would like to contribute, you may find the campaign here: Leena Miller Foundation
Take care, everyone.
