Community Update


Aside from monthly event news posts and the 2nd Friday of each month being focused on art/coding updates, all other Fridays are centered around the community!

Official Lioden Raffle


LINK - This is our official community update raffle. Everyone gets a chance to win a rare prize, plus something extra for any runner ups. These raffles have a very minimal ticket price, and there is a limit of 1 ticket per account to make it fair! Good luck!
This raffle will automatically end on 2022-11-04 00:00:00.

Server Maintenance


Earlier, the server that handles the frontend of everything went down randomly. We're still assessing the cause of that to try to make sure that doesn't happen again. After that server went down, it caused some backlog on the database server. This required us to do a bit of maintenance in order to bring everything back to normal operation. We'll be keeping an eye on the servers to get things running smoothly again!

Bug Fixes & Adjustments


* Custom CSS was not always applying properly to the chat frame. This has been fixed!
* Occasionally, the Transfers page would get stuck with the broken message, "Are
you sure you want to trade the following to". This should no longer happen!
* Refreshing (resubmitting) the page after using the lion "Change Name" tool in Oasis should no longer result in being charged multiple times.

Raffle Lioness


Congrats to the winner of last week's raffle lioness!
A new Sphinx lady with Feline 1 Fiery, Goridhe Pelage, and the third Great Rift Valley background is up for impressing in the Special Lioness area linked here!

Poll Results - Thank you all for voting on last week's poll! It's very clear that decorating your mutated lions is important to a lot of you!

NEW POLL - How would you prefer we go about adding decors for mutated lions? Let us know in this week's poll!

For an explanation on the poll options this week, please read below!

De-prioritise all other decor art and focus solely on mutation decors
> This would mean much fewer event/development updates until mutation decors are caught up with. Artists that work on decors would pause all other projects and focus solely on mutation decors. Marking/base/mane apps would still be released, bug fixes for art would still happen, and development updates would be likely 85-90% mutation decors. This would be fastest for releasing mutation decors, but other areas of the game may stagnate a bit while we work on it. This would likely begin very soon.

Work on it alongside other art (this would mean less regular content than normal, and very slow mutated decor releases)
> Event and development art would be slower, but still released alongside the mutation decors. This would take longer to complete the mutation decors, but events would still get some new content. This would likely begin very soon.

Crowd-source mutated art - allow artist players to submit their versions to the game
> Official artists would take a role in approving player-submitted art, but otherwise the workload would not shift. If this were to be voted in, we would set up a system for players to "claim" a decor to work on, upload their files, get approval (or rejection) from the artists, and for the decors to be completed.

This would have much stricter rules than Custom Decors as it would become official game art. Players would be given Gold Beetles in exchange for completing these decors, the amount dependent on the level of work involved to convert the decor for mutations.

This would be the longest time-scale for completing mutation decor art as it would involve coding the system to submit art, waiting for players to submit, waiting for approval from artists. However, the game's event and development updates would continue as normal while this happens.
