NEW FEATURE
We are pleased to announce the return of MaraJournals! The new Blogs have been released in a basic version on your profiles. The blogs link is at the top of every page near the online count and you can post new diary entries on your profile to let the rest of Marada know your latest news! Found a new avatar? Acheieved a new goal? Won a competition offline? Selling something new? Post a blog entry! Soon your Marapals will also be able to comment on them and many more features will be released over the next few weeks. We hope you like this new feature. Many of you have been gaining more entry space with your account upgrade purchases for over a year now, so you can finally use them!


If you haven't already noticed, Profiles have been changed to make room for the new Blogs. We hope you like the changes, they are a lot more organised now. You will soon be able to edit the colour scheme with your unlocked fonts in your glowing egg nest!

Account Upgrades are still down for maintenance. We are going through a major upgrade with their system, switching both payments methods and the currency we process payments in. We will no longer have USD$ as the main currency, but will switch to GBP??. Those in the US will still be able to purchase Account Upgrades, just like how people in the rest of the world has bought them in their currency, because Google Checkout will charge you in your own currency. It will be no different for you, but it will save us a whole week at the end of the year when we have to work out the taxes!

NEW LAYOUT
You probably already noticed, but we have a new Spring Layout. Although the war is still on, we wanted to release the new layout early, as the site is finally back to normal. We have completed all of the major maintenance around the site now and you should notice that the site is running much better because of it. We will still have the ocasional upgrades in certain areas of the site but it won't be longer than a couple of hours. You may of also noticed that we have added a few new links to the layout. We are working all week to improve the navigation around the site, introducing the new Currency and Pets sections, which will soon be information and quicklinks to places like the Pet Exchange, the Pound, Create a Pet, the Bank & ATM, etc. Thanks for your patience all of this month while we took our major upgrades to the site. We are back to normal now and stay tuned for some great new updates to the site in May.

Our annual Easter Egg Hunt has just started! Although two weeks later than usual this year, the war and site maintenance delayed it. Both the war and the maintenance will be finished by the end of the month. This year's Easter Egg Hunt has 40 levels for you to complete. There are 40 new easter eggs hidden around the site and you have to follow the clues to find them. These will be hidden for atleast a week, maybe longer if we have to, so everyone should be able to take part. There is an Easter Egg Hunt Forum where you can all work together to solve each clue.

There is one IMPORTANT RULE - you cannot list answers or give out answers on the Forums or Club Boards, ONLY via Maramail. Anyone caught giving answers on the Forums or Club Boards, or linking to websites with the answers listed on the Forums or Club Boards will be banned from taking part, will have their prizes taken away from them and will be fined up to 100,000MP.

There are some great prizes to be won from this event. You will win all 40 Easter Eggs if you complete the whole event, MP and these items below, which will all retire after this event.


Can you also find this Easter 07 avatar that we have hidden? It'll retire at the end of the event!


Clue : 'This Murfin can run, catch him if you can!'

We are almost complete with our quick Maintenance work on some of the busiest sections of the site. User Shops have finally been fixed so they can only allow the correct numbers of items in them - you will need to upgrade your shop size to hold more items. Your shop items have been moved to your Attic, but you can now easily and quickly move and price the items in your shop. Galleries will be back in a few hours, along with the Forums and News Commenting.

The second attack is on! Head over to the Battle Arena now to fight either a Kevadra or a Wizadrip.


These two new cute Chibs pet colours have been released - in Snow and Furry costumes!


Because of the ongoing War, it is too unsafe for Easter Eggs to be hidden around Marada - the Easter Bunny was even kidnapped! The war should be finished by next weekend, so we can start the Easter Egg Hunt then.

We are sorry to announce that we have a small technical hitch with this years easter hunt :/

We hAvE THE BUnNy. GiVe uS 10,000 SALmoN fLaVOuReD eGGs oR hE gEtS iT


The MBI (Maradan Bureau of Investigation) are currently hard at work trying to trace the kidnappers and rescue the bunny. The Easter hunt WILL happen once we get him back, there just might be a slight delay.

Minipet Island Land War - Part 4

Happy News!

We bring good news today, on a rather unexpected outcome to a secret peace conference that has being occuring to discuss the war. During their attendance at the conference, it is rumoured that King Baspinar XIII and Queen Eleka had been conducting private talks on the future of Maradas ecology in respect to the large number of Muskits and Swondors that have been killed as a result of the war.

It was announced today that during these talks the two rivals fell in love and were married in a secret ceremony several days ago! We also bring you the happy news that Queen Eleka is already expecting their heir to the throne. The happy couple have revealed that they intend to name their first-born Princess Laimay III (we just hope that it turns out to be a girl!) The Laimay will be our 40th species of Marapet, and will be the rarest of all the limited edition pets. We are not quite sure when it will arrive, as Eleka has declined to comment on the due date.

Obviously, the ongoing war is now cancelled, but there will still be plenty of changes happening to the site as Elekas castle is to be immadiately vacated, and work is commencing on Baspinars Castle to "bring it out of the dark ages and make it fit to live in" as Eleka tactfully puts it. War points will soon also be spendable in a new nursery shop that is opening soon.

The War is on! Queen Eleka foolishly thought she could win just by shutting her shops to the light side, but as that didnt work, shes sent 100,000 Swondors to attack the light side! The King has responded, sending 100,000 of his Muskit troops to fight the dark side! You can go to the Battle Arena now to fight for your side. You will gain War Points for each battle, which is a random amount between 1 and the difficulty of the opponent. There will be lots more opponents in the war, with more on the way this week.



The Restocking stage of the war is now over.

There are lots more items in the War Redemption Shop and even more items will be added over the next two weeks - including some more real prizes! Remember there is limited numbers of each one, and there is no guarentee it will restock again!

There have been a few problems over the last few days all related to the new Maramail server maintenance. It was stopping Auctions from processing and Account Upgrades from being automatic. These problems have both been fixed now and we would like to apologise to anyone who has bought credit over the past few days and not received it. Buying credit now should work, but for those missing credit, if you have already emailed marapets@gmail.com we will have it fixed within the next 24 hours. If you have not emailed us yet, please do so and then we can get it processed within 24 hours for you emailing us. It would of been fixed right after you emailed us, but we could not while the Maramail server was still broken. We have delayed the Retiring of the account upgrade items for another week to allow those who did not get their credit in time a chance to now.


The Queen randomly decided today to allow the Light Side to shop in her shops. The King also did the same for the Dark Side. Little does the King know, that Queen Eleka will attack tomorrow.... be prepared for the battling stage tomorrow! The Mini Pet Island shops have also reopen.

With the light side shops closed for all of the dark siders, the ongoing war is causing huge economic problems for the dark side, which relies on many of the goods on sale in places such as the City and the food grown in Gigantic Paradise. To help give her minions the goods they need to fight this war, Queen Eleka is giving out quests for items that are sold in the light side. If you bring them to her, she will reward you with War Points. If the dark side is to win this war and capture Mini Pet Island, we need YOUR help!


These two new Avatars will only be avaliable during the war.

WAR - Stage 2
With the dark sides shops closed for all of the light siders, the ongoing war is causing huge economic problems for the light side, which relies on many of the goods on sale in places such as Ziranek and the goods smuggled from the Dukka Caves. To help give his troops the goods they need to fight this war, King Baspinar is giving out quests for items that are sold in the dark side. If you bring them to him, he will reward you with War Points. If the light side is to win this war and save Mini Pet Island, we need YOUR help! If you are on the Light Side you can visit King Baspinar now!


With the King now giving out quests, he has decided to open the castle 24 hours a day. This means that the Troll can no longer have any guests visiting while the castle is open - you will have to wait for the war to finish!

The latest map to get a revamp is Ziranek! We hope you like the changes as much as we do - Ziranek was another map that had not been redrawn since it was first released.


Three new Avatars have just been released. Remember that a lot of Account Upgrade items will be retiring very soon!

There were a few problems with the War yesterday which have now been fixed. War points were not being registered for lots of people when we first started. This took a long time to fix (and just caused us some downtime), but by using our restock logs, we have calculated how many points you missed out on and have just rewarded them to you. Plus, Jenoa was mistakenly added to the Light side when its actually part of the Dark side of Marada.


We will be retiring lots of the Account Upgrade items we mentioned a few days ago tomorrow. You have only a few more hours to purchase them!

Stage 2 of the War will also be starting this weekend.

WAR - Stage 1
With the Light Side now banned from shopping on the Dark Side, King Baspinar has noticed a few problems with his economy. To try and fix these problems, he will be awarding 2 war points for every rarity of an item that light siders restock from his shops. This means that if you restock a rarity 10 item, you will receive 20 war points.

Queen Eleka responded quickly deciding to do the exact same for the Dark Siders. She realises that she has much less shops on the dark side than the light side has, but the dark side will have the advantage on the next stage!


RESTOCKING = buying items from the main shops (not user shops) on the world maps of Marada.
