First off, some things have been updated:
- Random events re-enabled
- Delete event notification and "clear all" event notifications links fixed
- Lottery postings have been deleted from news and will no longer be posted
- Forums have been cleared out
- Forum posts and replies will no longer earn pea points
- Quests have been reset globally and will be reset every night
Now, I feel it is important to discuss the future of the Pea World community.
As many are aware, there has been a random amount of activity from members over the years. There has been plenty of spam on the forums, plenty of dummy accounts, plenty of abuse in the groups. To put it plainly, I've kept the site up all these years in spite of all that so the few who do enjoy the site can continue to do so. It's a very personal site for me, as it was one of my very first development projects, so it's also difficult to let it go. However, I feel that time might be finally approaching.
As some of the older members may know, I've also branched out to other projects here and there. There was Dream Knight for a time, and many other concepts that never made it past the drawing board. Even Pea World itself has gone through numerous complete rebuilds and versions, with different avatars, peas, layouts... It's seen nearly a decade of life on the web. Now, it's time for me to fully move forward in other areas of my life as a developer, and to do this, I feel Pea World must be discontinued. The site has lost it's vibrance, has no-one to tend to it, and it's time to put it to rest. A date has not yet been set, but I wanted to give enough warning time for everyone to have a little last nostalgia.
Thank you to all of the admins, artists, writers, and players who helped breathe life into this pile of code. There's been so much joy throughout the years, if only for me. And who knows, maybe we'll meet again in another project?
