Sounds almost like we need another Festival >.>

Aren't those a lot of work for you, though? <.<

Though admittedly a Sparkle redraw has been a dream of mine since the last one. :heart:

Hrmmm, here's an idea. A 'normal' Serian.
Like from horse breeds.
Say you have the theme be typical horse breeds and you give hints about what breed and how it was named - an attribute, a personality trait, a strange concurrence such as the breed name also being a color name (like Palominos - all Palominos are palomino, yet not all palominos are Palomino) or how they have a duel name (Paint is often called Pinto by the Spanish speaking class, though it's the same breed [It seems the Spanish speakers usually have slightly different congruences in the paint's markings, as well]) or simply that it's a very smart/hardworking breed (Arabian/QH/Draft/ect.)

Ok, done now. *hides*

Heh I'm not in school so I've just got work to work around if you need help with the festival. And as we have all the old festival pages, at least we'd have something to go on? But don't overwhelm yourself dear, we just got our refreshed Foxx back, I'd hate to see you have to take another break so soon!

I think the theme has been decided on, now Foxx and I are just working on the details. In the meantime I'm setting up the final edition of the abandoneds list thanks to Tal's lovely starting point ^^, and if Foxx wants to send out a last email to those who are in danger still at this point, I'm sure she'll do so. Looks like there's going to be a lot to do around here soon ^_~.

Starting point? :?: *confused* I helped look it over and it seemed complete and up to date, to me. What else was needed/what was left to be done?

Yay for the theme decision. Are we going to get hints before the next little thing or is it going to be a surprise?

I'm sure everyone could lend a hand with the festival Foxx, if you decide to hold one that is. ^^ There definitely hasn't been a shortage of volunteers in previous years, and I'm currently in the same position as Tigs, or will be in a week's time, without the restriction of work even. That'll change when I move, but for now I'm available to help either of you if needed. I agree with Tigs though. Don't overwhelm yourself. Do what's easiest for you. No one wants to see you burn out!

And meh, I'm not sending emails out to the masses or anything ridiculous like that. That's up to Foxx's discretion. I only talked to people I knew, because I thought that they'd be interested in knowing that their websites are no longer operating, that's all.

And I'm sure the list is fairly complete Tigs-luff. I'll check out what you've posted after this as I haven't looked at it yet. XD

I think Tigs was talking about the fact that I had a few emails tucked away that resolve some of the missing links, I just never got around to updating them in the database (I still have to make a UI for that >.>) I will see what I can do about all of the poor abandons... it could be as simple as giving them away in the forums, but a Festival might also be kinda fun ^^

Some of the Serians listed there might be permanently abandoned though... once a Serian gets passed around a lot of times they kind of become a bit jaded and anti-social and want nothing more to do with the Bonding process. The number of times that needs to happen in order for the Serian to get that way is not a set number, it has more to do with their names/Altars/personalities.

I'll update this some more when I'm not at work >.>
