April fools has to be my favorite unique and tons of fun-especially liked that it was on timers bought everything! :D
Space odyssey-was a very nice theme too bad it was all Yc!
I also enjoyed Yoscars thou with almost all the themes not very many items to complete a room.
I liked the contests dress up avatar and enter. Waiting for more contests for Yoworld avatars that work around yo!
I would like to see 2017 longer themes more items complete themes a must! too many short incomplete themes(mini themes) just boggles the mind-in my opinion-I just pass them by being disappointed-concentrate on bringing larger themes that last longer.Egypt would be perfect hint hint!
Vip has not impressed me thus far being a member since the start....Vip events just sits empty wheres the vip clothing and hair on timers for us members? Do that and see events alive and kicking..Seriously somethings gotta give!

P.S. lol would love to see more Crayon continuation for April fools in our yo future!

You forgot to mention the Chanukah mini-theme. I suppose because it was rather mini...

I hope you will have a Passover theme.

I also hope you will consider slowing the rate a little bit. It's so hard to keep up with everything. There's not enough time to decorate fully before another theme is upon us. Have mercy, BVG!

I will again implore you to NOT remove themes anymore. It's fine to have collectibles, but SO difficult, as a designer/decorator, to complete a concept when the items do not exist in the store and those who have them charge an arm and a leg. We don't make enough coinage to afford them. A sofa is half a million coins or more? Come on. I LOVE YoWorld, so please love me and all the decorators who are not buyers/sellers. Rant over, thank you.

thank you for addressing the lag again, even just briefly. im worried it could eventually play a part in the end of this game. most people i know, lag more than i do.. but mine is bad enough, and i do everything daily to reduce it. i keep inventory to a minimum, i clear all my thingees, i use gamesroom (which yes makes a small difference for me), i have clothing and furn animation off (which sucks in a way cos i dont get to play with interactives unless i decide to turn them back on. it just becomes a pain)
if you have read my posts over the last year, i am sure you are prob sick of me mentioning animated items. but i need to keep fighting it. most people love animation, i do, well some of it lol. its fun. even though i am no expert, i have spoken to a couple who are (who dont play this game btw)... and also just using common sense... i really believe it is bogging the game down. even you guys have admitted its heavy on the servers. what i find disheartening... is that you put a limit on clothing slots, and you said it was so out toons didnt get too laggy. but since then, you've released soooo many animated clothing items. so there goes that idea. do you know that there are trolls who we call lag machines? they wear as many animated items as possible, to lag and eventually force people to refresh.. hell we have to refresh enough already.. esp if we are playing with friends.
could you limit the amount of animated items we can wear? 3 should be plenty. i have pic proof of people who wear 20+ just to be a jerk. some days its like we might as well go back to having script kiddies with their mods, freezing the social players.

are you aware that zynga very rarely released animated items? back then only the very "special at the time" were animated. clothing i mean. there was a few hairs and wings. thats about it. and decor... most of the animation you had to click to see..and it would last 20 seconds or so. there was prob good reason for this.

i hope i have gotten a few points across to you. i dont like seeing people struggle. but i am really worried that the lag issue could be too far gone, with all we have already, constantly moving, bogging servers down. it just doesnt feel like these servers are handling us well at all. im not just talking about socialising at altons or events either. there are other struggles, loading, crashing, when doing a lot of things. please consider my animation theory. its gotten to the point i almost dread new animations. but then other days i think "yadda it.. ive done all i can, talked my butt off in forums about it, maybe i should just accept the new norm". but its no fun feeling, and especially seeing the struggle. i had to speak again
id love to feel good about supporting this game financially again. i even consider vip occasionally. but i just cant do it right now, due to this

I hope you've been working on upgrading the factory, it's about time it was upgraded, keep the basics of collecting coins but more ways to earn coins is much needed. Also the promotions to increase salary need fixing.

Instead of just a focus on one superhero it would better if a Superhero theme was made, gives the Vikings a lot more creativity
How about a "Dr Who" theme? Your creativity can go wild because Dr Who teleport's you could send him to as many places and what ever place's you can imagine? Just a thought!

The Parisian theme went on before I came back to play again but after you guys mentioned it on the podcast the other day I went back and looked through it, went straight in and bought the house and will go in later this evening to buy the stuff I need to fill it. So obviously I loved the theme. The other one was the Japanese theme and have already done that one not long ago. Loved that theme. As to things to go into next podcast, after the thread the other day that went on for page after page about yoworld.com, I hope you'll touch on that again. Yes I know you've briefly mentioned it not long ago and said it was on the back burner. However it really appears that the majority of us want it again so I hope you'll go into it again. It was soooo useful. For those that don't want their home shown, just give them a way to lock their account. Pretty please. :)

How about a full house decorating contest? I love it when I go on a coin run and happen across homes that are fully decorated with a centralized idea, bringing the whole house together. It could be a cool contest.
