The Fires of Tradition Keep Burning!

This past Saturday, July 21st saw the traditional Lighting of the Fires take place within the Festival of the Sun. Felorin and Talzhemir were both on hand to regale the crowd with stories, interesting informative tidbits, and -- inevitably -- Felorin's own purrsonal brand of humor! Never a dull moment with the Wizard of Puns around, that's for certain!

Annual Lighting of the Fires

The long, hot days of Summer are in full swing -- it's time for our annual Lighting of the Fires! Come join us in the gorgeous Festival of the Sun Dream where Felorin, Emerald Flame, Gar, and others will set the stunning 32-bit braziers ablaze in honor of Summer and the season of M'Rill, Prime of Felines. Always a popular event, be sure to arrive early to grab a good seat!

Sneak Peak: Web Client Interface

Hope your summer is going well! Work on our web/mobile client for Furcadia has continued and we moved it to a new location! If you are a Second Dreaming supporter or have a Silver/Gold Sponsorship, you can access it at https://play.furcadia.com. You may notice that it currently uses the standard interface, but that's just a temporary placeholder. Here's a quick preview of what the finished graphical user interface will look like:

Fun in the Sun Dream Contest

Long sunny days and warm moonlit nights... Summer has arrived! Time for all things outdoorsy and fun!

Working alone or in a team, build a Dream showcasing an awesome, super fun Summer game! Let your imagination run wild -- maybe an inner tube checker board, or ultimate frisbee! Purrhaps bubble soccer? How about lawn darts (just don't throw them straight up!)? No matter how silly or serious, we can't wait to see and play with your creations!

This contest will run all Summer, so you have lots of time to get those creative juices flowing!

Expired and inactive Groups

Since the introduction of Groups, many players have made use of this social feature to promote their Dreams, find like-minded friends, and display their community connections. It's been educating for us to see how players have utilized Groups and what the challenges were.

As a step toward further improving Groups, we have removed all description tags originating from Groups that no longer exist. Free Registered Groups do not prevent a character from expiring due to inactivity, so if the character that is associated with a Group expires, so does the Group. Until now, this didn't delete tags from characters that were previously part of the expired Groups, which wasn't an ideal solution. If you are missing tags from your description after this week's maintenance, it is because the Groups the tags came from are no longer in existence. Desctags from expired Groups will now be removed on a monthly schedule.

A note on inactive Groups: If you own a Group that is set to "inactive", but the uploader/Rah still exists, please reactivate your Group or contact us at https://support.furcadia.com soon. All members of inactive Groups will be removed from these Groups starting on July 15, 2018. In other words, inactive and expired Groups will be treated identically after this deadline.

Confused by all of this and have questions or concerns, please drop us a support ticket and we'll be happy to help. :)
