We Need a Break


We’re very busy, and I know a lot of you guys are too, so I’ll get straight to the point. (Even if you are busy though please read everything on this post, because I put a lot of heart into it ❤ )

I need as much time for school as possible, meaning I need to cut back on some of my hobbies. And as much as I would like to stay and continue being a part of your lives (because you all have touched mine; even though I don’t know what you physically look like I see you all as real-life friends), I need to take a break.

Several people have (sometimes rudely) pointed out already that I’m “too old” to be playing Fantage. Maybe I am, but the only reason I’ve continued to blog is because I can’t imagine leaving behind SO many people and something I’ve put SO much time and effort into, no matter how “childish” it is. So choosing to leave for even just a couple months was something I was really hesitant about. I’m just really attached to this blog, it’s like my second life 😐

In short, I created this blog to help, and, even in my absence, I want to continue doing that. So, it makes sense that if I am no longer able to help, I should direct you all to someone who can.

I do NOT want to choose any workers. It’s time-consuming; it puts pressure on the person I choose because it’s like an obligation; I don’t want to choose favorites; I don’t want drama and hate directed at any new workers; and I can’t imagine adding a third person to what has been a two-person team for nearly two years.

Instead, this is how I will deal with the most major things on Fantageville to keep them running for you guys FOR NOW, until we come back (yes, I am planning to come back). It’s really sad to see a great blog become “dead” or inactive just because its owner has moved on in life.

Event Posts

Some of you bloggers out there have AWESOME posts.

If you feel that your event posts are proficient in detail, neatness, and overall awesome-ness (and maybe even match our usual format), please add the hashtag #FVHelper to your event post TITLE, and I might choose your post to reblog during an event!

e.g. If you are posting about a Fantage Halloween event, make the title of your post “Fantage Halloween Event 2014 #FVHelper”

This way, I’ll be able to find your post quickly through Google Search.

This might be an unusual method, but I think it’s better. You helpers will get viewers (reblogging means my viewers have to go to the original post from your blog to see the entire thing), and I get to choose from a variety of bloggers, all with different skills, each time there’s a new event and I’m too busy to post.

Comments

We get a loooot of comments, and it’s what makes this blog a happy place. The minimum rank needed to moderate comments, unfortunately, is Editor. Again, I wish to avoid the process of choosing any workers.

So, I’ll change the settings of the comments to “Comment author must have a previously approved comment” (meaning if you have an approved comment already, your comments will be automatically approved). Then, you guys can answer the questions (if you can) yourselves! It will be like a fan-run blog for a little while. I think it will be interesting to see what happens.

This is a risk of course, but it is also an act of trust. I trust that you guys will continue commenting in an appropriate way, as you have done for a long time.

Remember that we have a “Recent Comments” widget near the bottom of the sidebar, that should help, because it shows the 15 most recent comments on this blog.

Vintage Gold Items Page

Maybe it’s my OCD-ness, but I would hate it if the list were to become incomplete, after nearly a year of posting all the items.

If your knowledge of screenshotting and using Google Docs is proficient, hopefully you will consider taking up this job.

I’ll need people to take screenshots of the Vintage Gold items, like the ones you see on our page. I have up to August 31 only. Paste them onto a Google Doc, and remember to write down the prices in stars. No need to add any copyrights, I can do that myself; just the plain screenshot is perfect.

Hopefully more than one person will volunteer for this so I can combine them together in case someone misses a day. This also ensures maximum accuracy.

These two awesome people have volunteered almost instantly after I posted this, thanks so much! I’ll be waiting for your banner/advertisement. If you miss a day, it’s no big problem, that’s why we have two people 🙂 To other people who were planning to help, I feel that two is more than enough, but thanks so much anyway!

1. cindy_lee_9
2. avalon (Brooke on XAT)

If you do volunteer to help us and you’re listed above, please send me a banner advertisement of your blog. I will keep it on our sidebar with a clickable link for the period of time that I am gone, as appreciation for your help ❤

My Fantage Items

I’ve been wanting to sell my items for a while now, but I didn’t get gold until now. Visit this link for all the information:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/10RFeas_sudTQ-8vnJsPXaDhLKPryRCmiDdoaJiLYciE/edit?usp=sharing

My Social Media

I will keep only my email (fantageville@gmail.com) active for the time I am gone. I may check Facebook now and then, but I will not be running the other social media links on the Find Us On pages. Last, since I do have to come back to find posts to reblog, I may check the comments once in a while.

~~~

I feel that this is a win-win-win situation (yes, three wins). I get a break and can focus on school. My viewers will continue being informed and helped. Helpers will gain the viewers they truly deserve. I know that this blog has become very “popular,” and I don’t want our work to have gone to waste. I think it would be a good idea to use it to pass down some of that “popularity” to you younger bloggers so you can pick up were we left off 🙂

I’m not sure when I will be back (very latest will be December), but hopefully this system will be kept in place until I do.

If you have any VERY URGENT matters that is related to this blog only (e.g. An offensive/harmful comment that needs to be removed) then you can still email me at fantageville@gmail.com.

While I am gone, I won’t be going on any social media, including XAT and ask.fm. I hope that you people on XAT are mature enough by now to behave yourselves. You’ve done really well this past week, thank you so much for that.

I’ll wrap this up, thanks so much for EVERYTHING, from continuing to visit this blog to helping us out when we need it. Love you all ❤

Angela’s Addition

I think this would be great for our blog. I have been SO busy lately that I have not even been able to GO on the internet OR edit my fashion blog. Ever since the start of the year, I’ve had to focus on 3 AP classes, learning how to drive (it actually takes a lot of time and effort), staying dedicated to my workout routine, SAT prep classes and homework, in addition to ice skating 5 times a week. I know I sound like a whiny baby right now, but my junior year of high school is one of the most important for my GPA, which will seriously decide my future in college and for getting a job.

I really like Moomoo’s idea of a sort of “fan-run blog” because that is a very innovative idea. I hope you all are mature enough to do what is right and appropriate for our blog. Maybe by next summer, I can start doing more for the blog. Otherwise, I can barely even get on the internet to do anything a few times a week. 

Unfortunately, I also have to say that I have to cancel the Fantageville Games. I know it took forever to do all the tasks, but once school started, I realized that I literally CANNOT keep up with the games. To all the participants who have made it this far and who have not, I am truly sorry and I give you my utmost apologies. I have also decided to suspend regular posting of videos on my Youtube channel, Twins Entertainment.

Since I am not interacting with basically any of my blogs or anything during the school year, I think the best thing for me to do would be to post vlogs. Vlogs are super fast and easy and I may be able to do them every week. I really want to stay connected to people during the school year, so I’ll let you guys know when I start doing that.

Otherwise, have fun running Fantageville 🙂

  8. This has nothing to do with the post but can someone tell me why there are fake people in fashion show and wild rumble??
    I have noticed this for ages. Like when I play fashion show, the people who are fake NEVER talk, they wear old fantage items and when you exit from your fashion show they are never around… Once I was playing a fashion show and it was the last round. I was up against two people, and the round before the final round they were both wearing the same board. When the last round came, the final theme had the board they both had, but when they were both finished changing they put on a different board! They were obviously not real people… It’s so creepy!
    And has anyone noticed that in Wild Rumble most of all the people you play against are guys? I played about 5 games and every single game was a boy, and no matter what they were wearing they had member pets.
    Something else, but why has there been nothing in Vintage for the past 2 days? There is nothing on the shelves and when you click on the “shop” button it just gets stuck loading at 99% and you have to walk out using your arrow keys. I heard some people saying it was because nobody votes, but Fantage only use the votes to see which items are the most popular.
    Sorry for the long post, but I really want to know, does anyone know why? 🙂

    • I KNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW

      for ur first question, its because fantage just makes up fake usernames, just in case u wanna play fashion show or any other game when theres no people on.

  33. Moomoo and Angela,

    Firstly, a big THANK YOU to you guys! You two have been an inspiration to all, and pioneered Fantage blogging, along with Wind & Slippy. Thank you to you two for always providing quality blog posts, keeping up with it for so long, and for being positive role-models and bloggers for younger kids to look up to. The workload for FV must be insane, and I can’t believe you’ve gone so far in two years! (Is it two years yet?)

    Thank you for always notifying us of and sparking discussions on topics of concern (scamming, the abuse toward Fantage employees) in a respectful manner; both bringing attention to said subjects and asking opinions on a resolution. I love seeing posts like that, since I adore reading others’ opinions and feedback.

    Please do take time on your studies, your social life and most of all, your “real life” in general! Fantage and Fantageville will always be here, whereas you only get one shot at getting those straight A’s in whatever year of high school you two are attending. Remember — Fantage is temporary, but the grades you earn in your Sophomore, Junior & Senior years are permanent (unless you want to re-sit those years, but who WANTS to do that?) and will play a heavy hand in your future. (Unis, Colleges, etc.)

    You two were/are huge personal heroes in terms of Fantage for me. Best of luck with your studies, and “real life” things! We will never forget you, and will be anticipating your return.

    Congrats your accomplishments with this blog.

Then, of course, a day later it’s replaced by a stupid store JUST for members.

    There is this new thing on Fantage called a Bestie. Only members can buy them. Basically Fantage knows that lots of people want a “whun” these days and they are trying to make money out of it, and its working. Girls can only buy boys and boys buy girls. They’re really creepy and repeat the same lines over and over again. They follow the person who bought them and every now and then they say something, and repeat themselves over and over again. It was only released today and I have already seen over 20 people with one. You can turn them on or off in your inventory, and the name underneath them says (users name)’s bestie. Personally I find them really annoying and Fantage shouldn’t have made them.
