Here are some thoughts and improvements in regards to the event features we designed this season!
  • Our Autumn event was our first foray into a more forum based event run manually by staff.
  • In the future, our plan is to have one fully coded event feature with different mechanics per season (4 different types in total) with side activities such as creativity forum threads, seasonal quests, and various other site based mechanics to supplement the main event type!
  • Event Shop and Currency removal date will be staggered to be after other dates from the start to give everyone time to buy what they want before it closes.
  • Event shop items will be stationary rather than changing in order upon refresh/purchase.
  • "Currency" type item will be added to allow better inventory sorting.
  • Seasonal event quest will not have a repetition loophole after completion for future events in which you can get more snacks per day if you don't complete the seasonal quest right away. We'll make sure this experience is the same for everyone!

 
Our next more major event will be some time within the winter months, we'll update everyone with more info as we plan!

    Awwww I love the Staff picks! Congrats you guys <3

    This event was so fun, I'm super excited for the winter one! Can't wait to see what you do!
  • Villager Xyn (#32511) 8 Dec 2020, 5:11 am
    Yay
  • Villager Mahogi (#21949) 8 Dec 2020, 5:17 am
    This event was much better than the summer. I was happy to be able to do the daylies at my own pace when I could. Rewards were great. Prompt idea was brilliant, was so fun to browse everyone's entries, and even try joining in
    Very good event! Just can't wait for winter ^^
  • Villager Iruka (#27057) 8 Dec 2020, 5:21 am
    Much happier with this event than the summer one that's for sure!

    I wasn't given participation snacks for all of my submissions which.... really sucked since I spent one of my days off doing a bunch of them to try and snag some items but I did actually feel like this event was possible so that's a big step up in my book.
  • Villager Capra (#20595) 8 Dec 2020, 5:23 am
    This was a great event, thanks, staff! :D
  • Villager Dryad (#1337) 8 Dec 2020, 5:36 am
    Yay it was awesome to win one of the raffles! This event has been my favorite so far.
  • Villager Digi (#27778) 8 Dec 2020, 5:38 am
    Thank you so much for the event! It was lots of fun <3

    I'm kind of sad over the lack of clarification about the ending though as when the the clarification post was made, I was asleep so I missed spending 100 snacks on stuff :(
  • Villager Fox_Sox (#8486) 8 Dec 2020, 5:51 am
    This was a super fun event! Really liked the initial idea behind it <3

    I think the only thing I can think of to improve this event is have staff picks for categories. I think if we have staff picks for art, figures, and writing each it’ll be more equal.

    I’d also like to know what the staff wanted to see for their picks. Was it supposed to be creativity or aesthetic? I’d really like to know why each staff member picked what they picked! It would add a little more value to winning I guess (I don’t really know how to word this lol). Like, have a little staff member name with a “” quoting why they loved that prompt submission!
  • Villager TheWind (#26535) 8 Dec 2020, 6:43 am
    thank you staff. events like this bring people to the site. it's lonely when events aren't happening. i hope you can manage to sprinkle smaller events in between the 4 big ones.


    we need these events to thrive x3 xoxox



    amaaazing event.
  • Villager Dread (#772) 8 Dec 2020, 7:04 am
    Wanted to leave a quick comment, especially because I was definitely pretty critical in earlier stages of the event. Once this event was extended to allow for more time, this allowed the cost of the items to feel reasonable to reach, and I really enjoyed the format of the event! I also appreciate a lot of the future plans you mentioned, for some of the issues that did pop up here. The setup with the shop and shop currency is definitely a format I greatly prefer, and I think overall it worked very well! The only thing that ended up souring portions was the prices being so high in comparison to the initial 2 weeks the event was going to run- the event getting extended helped the event become one that was much more enjoyable, but it still was a bit stressful at the beginning when timing was so short. Overall, though, this was much more enjoyable than the summer event.
  • Villager Johannabelle (#31826) 8 Dec 2020, 7:41 am
    ahh, thank you for the staff pick!! I had a lot of fun with this event, loved the creative element and seeing everyone's entries <3
  • Villager saymonsy (#47214) 8 Dec 2020, 7:50 am
    What a way to close the event, winning one of the random raffle prizes!!

    Thank you for this experience. I enjoyed it.
  • Villager NightmareSpice (#16422) 8 Dec 2020, 7:50 am
    Big thanks to everyone who helped make this event happen! I liked the style and structure of this one muuuuuch more than the Summer event. I could see some small quality of life improvements, but the overall structure of the event was fun.

    After the summer event, I was so burned out I stopped playing for a while. After this event, I'm getting back into it. :)
  • Villager DontPanic (#36795) 8 Dec 2020, 7:51 am
    Thought it was enjoyable and accessible, thanks!
