You can't come back in here all willy nilly like nothing happened. You must be questioned before we will allow you to start operating your forum mod license once again.

1. Are you getting enough rest or are you a sleep deprived baby zombie?

2. Is your desk now covered in baby pictures?

3. Do you smile every time someone mentions the baby?

4. Have you changed a stinky diaper yet?

5. Is there anything better than a sleeping well fed baby?

Welcome back :thumbsup:


Well I don't like making a habit of hijacking threads but if I must answer these questions, then here I go:

1. Yes, I'm getting between 6-8 hours of sleep which is normal for me although it is staggard.

2. I have not brought any new pictures in yet, I have the same three as I left, (My Dog, My Fiancee, and an ultrasound picture of my child)

3. Yes, I'm proud. He's healthy/happy and honestly, I'm just amazed that I help make something so beautiful.

4. I have changed many stinky diapers, It's kind of my job around the house.

5. No, nothing... I like watching him sleep. (It's not creepy if you're his father).

Hopefully, I passed your inspection.

:D :thumbsup:

You absolutely did. When I was a baby my dad would come home from work, take a shower, and come sit in my room and watch me sleep. He knew my brothers would not step foot in the room because mom would kill them if they woke me. It was his quiet time before taking on the evening. Now when we fish together, he says my ability to keep my pie hole shut and enjoy the quiet is his favorite thing about me. I have no idea if that is a compliment or not? LOL

Best of luck with the new approach and I will try to sound enthused and hope that it works out for everyone.
Unfortunately as far as my money and I are concerned it's just too little too late after a year fraught with disappointing repeat themes and ever increasing contests and events where the voting choice entries are mostly low effort rush jobs to collect free junk, yet another underwater and fall farm theme following a disappointing Halloween have me slated to disband my club and quit playing completely on New Year's Eve.
It's been fun but IMHO BVG dropped the ball from the beginning by talking about getting YoWorld.com online and having an alternative to playing on Fakebook, then continuing to hand over 30?, 35?, 40%? to the socialist network instead of investing into their own site and allowing players to avoid the drama, division, and propaganda on Fakebook.
I enjoyed Yo, when there were decent, semi original, non pre-teen oriented themes and there wasn't 15 minutes of popups, contests, and garbage upon login. I used to login and deco to relax after work, but all the events and adding random buddies has finished me off. I come here to get away from people, WTH would I want to add random players who later show up begging or wanting to buy items FROM A TOUR, NOT A SALE?
Not to remind everyone that history repeats itself if you're too ignorant to learn from it but everything took a turn for the worse when Zynga tried to get more involved and raise profits across the board. Them starting the "red tag" groups in MW was the beginning of the end there, if it's not broke don't get greedy and try to profit from it or the long money will walk away.

I was hoping we would see nice items in the store to purchase. Does this mean being as we are already into November and people are getting more in Xmas items already , it seems as fall seems is going to be skipped.
Are we getting anything for fall .

Fall theme coming up at the close of Lost Atlantis! Thursday, I think? :hug:


Correct! :D


Forgive me if you feel I am being negative but these new items look sorta like Fishworld items , the trees are fluffy and puffy, was hoping for more refined nicer trees and items that dont look like decals such as the animals as well. Love to make landscapes but was hoping for better quality, waited all year for new Fall items hoping to see some more realistic items we are used to seeing for YoWorld. Does anyone place the items in the game to see how they appear before putting them for sale. I do mention always better quality is appreciated in the surveys. when we are asked.

They were able to make adult decisions. They were able to give everyone something they liked. They knew how to find that balance. And they accomplished that with common sense not with surveys. I miss Zynga.

And then Zynga kicked everyone to the curb and closed up shop, but not before continuing to take their money, right up until the bitter end. If it weren't for BVG, we wouldn't even be here right now discussing the game at all.

So, the theme thread is a great idea. I've always seen folks come up with a possibly good idea, and it just scrolls away and all the enthusiasm that went with it. Now it'll be retained for evaluation.

And I don't know how many times I've heard folks clamoring for the internal survey results. I actually thought you'd want to keep those close to the vest, so I'm particularly pleased and amazed you will be releasing them. Of course those that wanted something and got it shot down will have a whole period of mourning, but that's to be expected. At least it will give the impression that something like a democracy is in effect.

Then, I think I remarked on the other Mark thread that having player feedback before its too late, while the theme is still in the works, would prevent player frustration and dissatisfaction with the results. Your plan to include the players all along the way helps to gain their acceptance and helps the players feel they are part of the process, which they really should be.

The business of handing over the pictures to the Theme Planners and including them in the survey should help with keeping the theme on track and delivering the final product as close to the original concept as possible.

So I like most people on this thread applaud your actions, think they are well considered, and appreciate you showing that you do listen and respond.

Well done!
