I am so sad to hear this, but i understand why it must be done. While i will still login/trade/post/etc i am certainly going to miss the the monthlies/events and bazaar pets. I was super excited for the Yuletide event as well, so it's a shame that will not be happening this year. But i am also excited to see the revamp, even if it is so far away.

But good luck, thanks for the heads up and i can't wait!

I'll miss the monthly releases and events, but I understand the reasons for this and I'm glad the site will still be up.
Good luck with the new project and thanks for informing us. E-mail updates every now and then, especially when/if there's a freebie would be very much appreciated.
I can't wait to experience the new Eldemore and see what you have in store for us. ^^


I thought the same thing at first ;o and was worried... but reading what is really going to happen, I'm not as worried anymore! I will miss the daily adventure on here for sure! I'm really looking forward to the place this will become in the coming year! I know everything will be worth the wait for sure. This is the best pet adopt site out there IMO and will only be getting better! I can't wait until the new site is ready and I will be there right when it is!

Oh dang, this is a big step! I'm proud that Eldermore is becoming much better, I wish all the staff and the hard working coders who's gonna be presenting the new eldermore. I'll miss the old layout, but change is good! Big risks like these are needed to have successfull changes. As a fan of eldermore, I'm eagerly awaiting to see what new goodies will be in store.
Or in other words: It's going to be dawn of a new eldermore era.

We kind of fell off that wagon this year, but I'm hoping we can continue the tradition next year. It all depends on when we come back up, so we'll have to cross that bridge when we reach it.

Basically, the whole site is being re-written. Layout and theme will be changing, numerous convenience/quality of life features will be added, and we're looking at also adding item trading and a re-release system like Thorn's Cottage and/or Bastion's Heart. There's more stuff that we're discussing internally, but I can't go into any of that until it's definitive.

You can see a preview in the Screenshot I posted. The colors you see there are likely going to change because we haven't nailed down our color scheme quite yet. Rest assured though, we are quite fond of the above art as well, so I'm hoping art like that can play a bigger role in our new site's design. And yes, we will have multiple themes probably a while after the initial launch.

You can still check on your pets.
Eldemore will still be in use, like forums and such, but no more monthly adopts after Dec 1st.
So you can still check in!

I'm sad for the no events and adopts part, but really happy you decided to do this to take all the time to get the new site amazing. Can't wait!
And in the meantime, I can try to get this wishlist a bit smaller haha.

I'm glad the site will still be running, though I am a little sad that there won't be any regular adopts.

Will the pets have different line art? I love the way some of them look!
