Happy new year's everyone!!

While our main event, the first ever Puppillars Plot, has already been posted, I wanted to post a roundup of other stuff and updates to start out the new year! There's a lot of fun stuff going on this year, so let's all get hyped! 

 

2023 news and updates

Thanks to everyone for taking the 2022 Puppillars Survey in November! The feedback was really helpful and there are a few things I wanna note from the survey

  • Snailcat MYOs will remain ARPG exclusive, meaning they will only be available in Apollo's General store for Treats. This may change in the future (will have future surveys) but for now they will stay where they are!
  • A much loved option from the survey, we will be adding a Premium Currency and Premium Currency Shop to the site, names are TBD but this will give more flexible options for purchasing MYOs and other items for USD
    • The "Purchase MYOs" prompt will be updated to the "Buy (Name of Premium Currency" prompt, which will function the same but grant premium currency, which can be spent in the shop
  • I am opening a Ko-Fi page for Puppillars! The new Ko-fi page will have some great new features
    • Members can also purchase premium currency through the Ko-fi shop (one less step than submitting the prompt on site, but currency will still be granted manually)
    • Ko-fi Memberships will also be opening, with lots of fun perks for those who wish to contribue monthly! More details will be revealed in the next few days!
 
New Year's Raffle

To celebrate the new year, we will be holding a raffle to raffle off some Special Occasion Presents! Members can earn tickets by doing the following:

  • Commenting on this news post to claim one free ticket
  • Advertise the site for up to three tickets (one per ad on a unique site/social media)
  • Include something you are looking forward to in 2023, whether it be Puppillars related or not, in your comment

The amount of presents raffled will be determind by the amount of tickets, with 1 for every 10 tickets!
The raffle will be open until January 20th, 2023 at Midnight Site time!
The raffle can be viewed here!

 
The Year to come

The "main event" this year will be our plot, which will have activities once a month that members will be able to participate in! With this going on, there will be no major events this year (think Dungeon Doggos or Bark Park Music Fest), but we will be having small Mini-events throughout the year to highlight the various holidays in the Puppillars world, the first of which will be the Festival of the New Moon, which will feature a prompt and possibly some adopts, which will start January 6th!

Of course, we will also still be having our usual festivities for the Puppillars Anniversary (in February), Pride Month (in June), and Art Fight (in July)!

 

thank you

I wanna finish up this news post with a big THANK YOU to everyone for making our Winter Advent such a success! I was kinda nervous about having such a big undertaking but seeing everyone's excitement and support of the advent every day made it well worth it! It was so excited to see everyone posting in the discord, and even seeing a few new members join up, and I hope we can carry on some of that energy into this year!

While the majority of the adopts have been claimed, we still have some open adopts from the advent:
