NEW FEATURE
We have just released a brand new game/feature in Lush Lake. This was supposed to be released as part of our million members party but that week was so packed full we never got around to releasing it. One in a Million is a FREE game you can play every 90 minutes. You guess how many coins are in the jar and if you do manage to guess correctly, you will win 1,000,000MP!!


We have fixed quite a few bugs and glitches around the site today and will carry on to do so all week. This has included updated all of the world maps, except for Dukka Town, Slater Park and Gigantic Paradise, for bigger versions with the new style of labels and new profiles with counters that were missing before.

We know you are all looking forward to our Plot/War so I will let you know a few more things about it. In a few days the plot will begin with a news release. The plot itself will be quite short, with most of it being user involvement. The war IS NOT JUST battling - there will be many other ways for you to take part. And finally, war points that you gain for the side you are fighting for will be redeemed in the war redemption shop to be released on mini pet island. You will be able to spend these points on items only released during the war and bonus prizes which will be added - which include X Box 360, Ipod Nano aswell as many other great prizes avaliable. The whole event will also last several months, ending in time for the annual Easter Hunt.

Happy New Year

It hasn't been a great start for 2007 so far for Marapets, but we would like to let you know what has been happening for the past few weeks. As Laimay was getting married in mid December, we decided that both Laimay and I will have the whole of December off for a break, so that she can get married, have her honeymoon and move into her new apartment and so that I can go on holiday. While we were gone, the site was run by the great team of blue stars staff and I managed to keep the site without any downtime for the whole month.

However, what we didnt know was that our main database server had been installed wrong over 6 months ago, and that the disks on that server were quickly been filled up, not from our data but from server error logs which we not noticable. A few days ago, the server ran out of disk space to save new data. This meant that new items, pets, members and a few other things were acting odd as they couldn't be saved. To stop the server from crashing, we had to quickly shut the whole of the site to try and fix the problem. This was not easy and it has taken a team of us the past few days to fix the problem, which was very close to losing us lots of valuable data, such as items and pets from the December. Luckily enough, we managed to catch the problem in time and fix it, but would like to apologise to you all for the lack of warning and notice for the downtime. It has cost a lot of money to get this fixed, and we hope that you understand how serious this maintenance was. The problem has been fixed and cannot happen again.

We will be continuing with small maintenance this week while the site is open, with much overdue glitch fixing and we will be returning to normal with regular news.

You may also like to know that in a few days, a new and unexpected visitor will be returning to Marada, and she may even be declaring WAR....

You may all be sick of looking at the maintenance error page, but the Burnt Chibs is now avaliable!

We'd like to apologise for the advent calendar not working today.
As some of you may have heard on the forums, our Christmas Newths who pack the calendar prizes all went on strike demanding more pay! Ian has been negotiating with them today, and after a promise of paying them in salmon rather than pilchards they have agreed to go back to work. It doesn't seem fair to let it only run for a half day today as some members would miss out, so it will be working from midnight mara-time and continue for an extra day at the end to make up for today.

Marada is looking particularly heavenly today... Maybe it's something to do with these new Angel pets!


Our elves are having a special giveaway for our younger members today... As its been harder for people with an under 13 account to participate in some of the other givaways, 20 random under 13s who our elves spot online today will win either a Christmas costume or one of the enchanted christmas plushies!


Some more stamps are now available for you to buy:



Congratulations to the following members who won a seasonal or christmas tree stamp!
lilaj378, alezma2, CanadasBabe, moka1973, maradev, gota15377, Dangelica, x0Dante, mrkite, and cyberkitty

Finally, has your club got a holiday layout? If so then tell your club leader to send an invite to our Chief Elf! (her username is "Elf" ). Ten of the most festive clubs will be getting a rare seasonal item to use as a club prize! (Please note - clubs must be active to participate in this giveaway and only ONE invite per club should be sent)

OK, own up - who has been running around Marada shaving the pets?! This poor Fasoro and Sindi were found shivering in the woods. We hope you have central heating in your marahome if you decide to get one!


Today the elves are on the lookout for people who have a seasonal picture in their forum siggy. Perhaps a christmas or other winter festival picture, or something icy or wintery... 10 random people who have one will win a retired seasonal or christmas tree stamp!
If you are under 13 and do not have access to the forums then dont worry - there will be a giveaway just for our younger members soon...

Six new stamps are now restocking...



These Enchanted Yakubi Plushies have been added to the plushie machine! We have also found the Enchanted Christmas Newth Plushie that the Newths were hiding and have forced them to add it.

Congratulations to idunnowhy, Aliyah, Dev0na, Firstborndragon, and chickflickgal who are now the lucky owners of their choice of seasonal pet!

After much persuasion (and a promise of free fish sandwiches) the Plushie Machine Newths have agreed to make Enchanted Christmas Addow Plushies much less rare for a while! This will hopefully last until Christmas, but they might end it sooner if we run out of fish sandwiches...

Our elves seem to be slightly confused today and think they're fairies as they are granting wishes! They'll be turning 5 pets on the site into any seasonal pet. If you want to be considered then write on your profile which pet you'd like them to change into what -
for example "I wish the elves would change Fluffykins into a seasonal chibs"

There will also be lots of small Christmas/snow/icy items given away by the elves all week at random to anyone they notice with something festive about their account (maybe christmas items in your gallery or shop, or a festive looking character, or using a christmas av, or a wintery siggy etc)


Meanwhile, (and despite our best efforts) the Plushie Machine Newths are refusing to have anything to do with the holidays, and have added these Enchanted Zetlian Plushies to the machine!

It's wintertime, and the temperature in Biala is even lower then normal. This Seasonal Viotto looks like he's nice and warm though...


Maybe this Poera should have thought to wear a nice warm cloak too - he seems to have turned to ice!

Is that reindeer bells I can hear in Biala? No, it's not Blitzen having a tantrum, it's this year's prizes being delivered to the Advent Calendar!

We apologise for the late start, but the advent calendar will continue until the 2nd of January to make up for it so you won't miss out :)
Don't forget to visit every day this month to pick up a special advent item, mp, or other prize. The prize changes every day and they will all retire at the end of December!

Please remember that you are only allowed one account on marapets! Anyone caught using more than one account to do the advent calendar (this includes accounts for 'brothers' that don't really play etc) will have ALL their accounts banned!

If you didn't know already, Laimay is getting married next week and will therefore not be around for the next two weeks. As this is very special event for her, something that she has been saving up for months, I have released a Ball Dress Female Costume and Tuxedo Male Costume in the limited edtion account upgrade items, where a percentage of the revenue will go to Laimay for her honeymoon! If you would like to give Laimay a gift from us all, you can purchase one. There is also a new Seasonal Pearl.
