Announcements!


This post has been updated 2 times, see green sticky notes

Hi everyone! I’ve just returned from my vacation in the spectacular weather of SoCal! Time to enjoy the rest of my winter break, while I am still able to escape the clutches of English homework…

As the title of this post suggests, I have a couple of announcements to make!

1. Thank You Angela

Thank you SO much for keeping our blog updated while I was gone! I lost Wi-Fi for 3 days, so I wasn’t able to come on at all (ok, there was Wi-Fi, but you had to PAY for it! I ain’t paying for that!)

She has posted Part 3 of the Holiday Blowout event, kept our ask.fm inbox neat and tidy, moderated all new comments, and took screenshots to keep our VG History page up to date.

2. Collage Idea

This is an idea that I’ve had for a while now, but I’m not quite sure if it will really work. Since our blog’s birthday (January 27) is this month, I decided to try it out.

I want this collage to represent the community that has sprouted around this blog after 2 years we have spent together, filled with fun, laughs, collaboration, persistence, and occasional obstacles that we have overcome.

And of course, since this collage represents all of us, it will need a part of every single one of you!

Don’t worry, this is very simple if you want to participate. This is what I need you to do:

  • Email me a screenshot of your entire ID Fone to fantageville@gmail.com
  • Please take off any charms or whatever those hanging thingies are called on your ID Fone, because it blocks part of the ID Fone
  • Dress your Fantagian in a color that matches your ID Fone wallpaper
  • If you have more than 1 ID Fone wallpaper, please take screenshots of all of them! I need different colors, and as many ID Fones as possible! Make sure to dress in a color that matches.
  • The skin (frame) of your ID Fone won’t be included in my final collage, but please include it in your screenshot anyway. This allows me to crop it any way I like.

Example:

 Example

Remember that it doesn’t matter what the ID Fone skin is, because I won’t be including it in the final collage.

Again, I don’t know if this will work, but I want to try! I need a LOT of ID Fones for this to work!

3. Vintage Gold

In my other Quick Post, I mentioned a petition to bring down Vintage Gold as requested by several people on our ask page.

After reading the comments and thinking it over, I’ve decided that I will not pursue this idea, for a couple reasons.

The number of people that like VG seems to balance out the number of people that don’t like it, and there’s no point to start a petition if we don’t have a majority agreement.

Also, I doubt a petition would do anything at all. Fantage doesn’t really consider their users’ opinions.

Last, for those of us who dislike VG, we don’t need to ruin it for those who do like it. We can just not buy anything from it. True, some of our hard-earned items from a long time ago will be sold there, but we shouldn’t be overreacting about the “value” of items, as it no longer exists. Think of it this way: if you got the item from when it was first released and NOT from VG, then you probably got it for a much better price!

4. Annual Report

We WordPress bloggers get one of these every year. It puts together a bunch of statistics onto one beautiful page for everyone to see an admire [:

Thank you to every single one of our viewers for making this possible, and a special thanks to our top 5 commenters for sparking great discussions and contributing your ideas on our posts and pages!

5. XAT Hackers?

People reported to me that there has been some hacking rumors going on in our XAT, and several people have transferred to backup accounts as a result.

Without even looking at the screenshots and other pieces of evidence that they’ve helpfully provided for me, I’m guessing that this is another situation of overreacting, started by someone who isn’t very well-informed on what hacking really is.

The most common “hacking” that I see is a bad person saying “Give me your password or I will hack you” and then they send screenshots of random computer-programming stuff, intending to scare them. Uh, stop for a moment and think. If they have the ability to hack you, why would they be asking for your password in the first place? Wouldn’t they just go ahead and do it?

I’m pretty sure no hacker would waste their time on a blog about a kid’s virtual game. Furthermore, if they were a legit hacker, they most certainly would NOT bother to talk/threaten you on XAT, they would do it secretly so you don’t notice until it’s too late.

So please, don’t start hacking rumors unless you actually did get hacked, for SURE. Don’t start chaos just because some random dude started threatening you in PC that s/he will “hack” you. They’re most likely lying.

As long as you never give away any personal information, nothing will happen to you. This includes (but is not limited to) passwords, birthdays, addresses, phone numbers, and real names.

I have banned Eren Yeager forever on XAT, as many reports are saying that he “hacked” June. I’m pretty sure that he is not a legit hacker and he was able to “hack” June only because he tricked her into giving personal info. As my scroll message says, do not click on any suspicious links, and do not chat with suspicious people.

Ugh, he disgraces Eren Jaeger (from my favorite anime, Shingeki no Kyojin =3=). He even spelled the name wrong

“Eren Yeager” has made new accounts. However, let us keep calm. He is NOT a hacker, he is a scammer that scares kids into giving him information.

Think of him like a spam email. Do you reply to spam emails? You shouldn’t. In fact, I just throw them in the trash without even opening it. But, seeing as we can’t “throw Eren in the trash,” the next best thing to do is to IGNORE HIM.

Do NOT insult him, do NOT reply, do NOT say anything to him. More importantly, do NOT start panic in the main chat by saying “Omg Eren is trying to hack me.” Again. He is NOT a hacker.

You guys are making a big deal out of nothing. June got “hacked” I think, only because she got tricked into giving him information. If you all listen to what I said below, you will not be hacked.

  15. Hope you had a nice time down here in SunnySoCal [: Also, congratulations on this blog’s progress, it truly deserves all the recognition it gets 🙂 Oh and psst, your Blog Views widget says: “1,034,370 Views! 1 million by 2014?” Might wanna change that ;D

    Oh and that “Eren Yeager” kid? I’m slightly more annoyed by the fact that he spelled “Jaeger” as “Yeager” than the fact that he “hacked” her ._. Just finished the anime. I must get a second season.

    Anyway, I’m interested in the turnout of this collage idea you have. Hope all goes well. Will participate if I have the time…Sadly, winter break is ending for me and that means back to school with more loads of English and History homework. What joy. xD

    Here’s to a new year! Happy (almost) Blog Birthday! :3

      • Oh, you mean read the manga? I haven’t had the time to read it yet, but I’m planning to once all my schoolwork dies down. I’m looking forward to it though 😀
        I guess my favorite so far is Levi Heichou. His character is really interesting :O I have no idea what’s his last name though, since “Heichou” means “captain” in Japanese I believe xD I think “Jaeger” means “monster” in German, too (?)
        Haha yeah, I mean, I enjoy literature and stuff, but writing boring reports & essays on boring subjects isn’t exactly my taste… 😛

        Like

      • Heichou is a bit of a vague term, it’s somewhere close to Lance-Corporal or Captain.
        Jaeger means hunter 🙂 The first line of the first opening means “We are the hunter and they are the prey” in German
        The manga is exactly the same as the anime, so the fun part is reading the chapters that haven’t been released as an anime yet 😀

      • Omg. I just realized that they’ve had a prequel/sidestory separate, since August. One is called Shingeki no Kyojin: Before the fall, and 4 chapters have been released. The other is called Shingeki no Kyojin Gaiden, which is about LEVI HEICHOU’S PAST!!! 2 chapters have been released for that one. I think it’s also been called “Shingeki no kyojin: No Regrets” or something.
        I read through them so fast, I want moooooooore :3

  16. Hi!

    I’m going to ask a friend to help me with the Collage, because I totally want to be a part, but cannot take screenshots on my computer.

    About the hacker issue: the only real reason I can think of for actually PCing the person is asking for credit card numbers, and that actually happened! Also, the hacker found the location of some people.

    I just thought I might share this information, though I’m sure you already know it.

    • About the locations, maybe the “hacker” owns a blog. I pretty much know all of your guys’ IP addresses when you comment, because that’s just how WordPress works. Knowing location won’t do much though, he is obviously using it to just scare you.
      Again, if they ask something like that, never reply. Think of it like spam email. When see something like that, I never even open it, much less reply.

  19. I just made the most stupid mistake ever. I fell for Fantage’s stupid diabolical plan. I spent more than 23,000 ecoins trying to get PBH. Regrets. I guess it’s just pixels but I pay for Fantage from the money I get from my allowance. I work hard for that money. UGH. Why was I so stupid??? I’m just letting everyone know so they don’t make the same mistake as I did. Be careful my dears. Be very careful, Fantage is very diabolical and smart.

  20. My earlier estimatewas wrong, I had 38,000 ecoins now I only have 7,000. So I spent 31,000 ecoins. Failure on my part. Don’t do what I did.
