Posted 3 weeks ago :: Last edited 2 weeks ago by mewhaku

 

Another UPDATE - 10/7/21 - Achievements [Awards] have now been moved from inventory items into your Award Case! We're working on continuing to clean up and organize the feature as well as prep the Whiffling prong of the feature too. =) If there's any errors, just let us know!

FLASH UPDATE- Late on October 1st Night...!

We have been able to bring quite a few updates online… although the main team of administrators is quite busy offline this weekend so stay tuned for the more functional parts of these updates!

Amongst others, our main add-ons you should be aware of are the Affiliates Add-On and Awards [Achievements] Add-On. We will be bringing more details on these in the coming days, in terms of 1) how to join as an affiliate site AND 2) Bringing our Paralogos Achievement Items over to the Awards function AND bringing on Whiffling Achievements! [Finally!] Some other quality of life add-ons have been updated, such as fixing some bug fixes in Scavenger Hunts and similar. Assuming all goes well, we are actively working on some features like Co-Owners as well! Speedy ’s working hard getting them online, and Mouse and mewhaku are working on polishing and adding to these features!

Hello all! We appreciate your patience in awaiting more site features- our main admin team has been quite busy this month offline for various reasons. We are actively working on adding more extensions and activities as we approach Halloween...!

I will say- this month you'll have some fun things to look forward to! Including a series of adoptables, mainly Paralogos but some Whifflings as well, almost every week in the coming month! Our recent set from @xJaydreamerx kicks this series off which you may have seen previously! =) And of course... today we have a Fall themed set from Shadonut ! So definitely check things out this month!

Also, a small clarification and note moving forward in terms of Whifflings species guidelines. We've found that it seems unclear what amount needs to have influence from the scent involved, so moving forward we've added the following to the Whiffling Design Guide [the Do's Section]:

"A Whiffling's Scent Influence needs to either have indirect themeing (colors or general style that make the influence clear), AND/OR approximately 25% or more of that scent influence directly on the body (incl. body parts like tails, skirts, hair, etc. that are made to look like the scent).
Essentially, if you can remove a few flowers (for example) and you don't get the context that it is a floral scented Whiffling, that's too little." 

Any designs that may not fit this will be grandfathered in/require no changes, but we're realizing after looking at the Masterlist that Whifflings seem to in some cases be facing an issue of not looking enough like their Scent Influence. On more abstract scents this has a bit more "up to interpretation", but for things like plants, flowers, and objects, this should be an easier clarification to follow.
