News

We've made some changes to the forum rewards!



Starting today, posting on the forums will reward you with 100 IcePoints per post instead of the previous 10. That means that posting on the boards has just gotten even more rewarding!



There has also been a slight change to the IceCash rewards a Gold User receives. Instead of getting 2 IceCash per post, up to a total of 20 IceCash per day, you will now be handed out 1 IceCash per post, with a maximum of 5 IceCash per day.



To celebrate the changes, there will be a small event. For one whole month (Starting today, the 29th of January and ending after the 29th of February), you will receive five times the IcePoints amount. That means that you will get 500 IcePoints per post made on any board (Forum Games excluded). This is limited to a total of 10,000 IcePoints per day. After this limit has been reached, you will get the usual 100 IcePoints per post.
Happy posting!



Sadly, we have to announce that our beloved @Pom has left the IcePets Staff to focus more time on his studies. We wish him all the best and will always keep him in our hearts.

That also means that we will be looking for a new team member that can take over his position as an Editor. Do you like writing as well as working in a team? Then you should go ahead and give it a try. Don't be afraid to apply - We (probably) won't bite!
Ah, it smells like fresh flowers! ... And requests, too!

It seems like @Kirsty has requested some new items! Can you see the theme?




Meet three new plushies, the 60s Makoat Plushie, the 60s Sharshel Plushie and the 60s Wulfer Plushie! These will be stocking in Plushie Mania - and it seems like the Plushie Quest has their eyes on them too! But what would a 60s party be without a 60s Stamp and a 60s Ice Cube? These new collectibles can be found in Post Office and Frozen Collectibles Emporium, respectively. Aren't you excited to show them off once you put them in your collections? Though you might want to snag an extra Ice Cube or two, as the Snowman Quest will also be requesting it!

Speaking of collections...



How beautiful is this new Hidden Avatar @Garnet funded? I can't wait to get my hands on it!



But wait, don't go yet! It seems like it's time to vote for the next Member of the Month (or MOTM for short)! This means that you, the users of IcePets, will select who you think is deserving of receiving 50,000 IP and this exclusive avatar!



REMEMBER
- You cannot nominate yourself or members of staff.
- Do not ask other users to vote for yourself or other members.
- You can only nominate users who have not previously won MOTM.

You can send your nominations here!

Voting ends on January 31st at 11:59 pm IST!

This year's Colouring Contest has come to an end. That means that it is about time to take a look at the winners!




In third place we have a tie! With 5 votes each: @Korn and @Nati, respectively!
Congratulations! You will receive your prizes, a Rainbow Snow Jar, a Golden Competitor Stamp and 25,000 IcePoints shortly. Don't forget that you will also be able to fund an item for free, so start thinking about what you'd like!



The second place goes to @Spit with 9 votes!
You will receive a Rainbow Snow Jar, a Golden Competitor Stamp and 50,000 IcePoints in addition to being able to fund an item for free. Congratulations!



This year's winning entry comes from @Varyntha and managed an impressive score of 31 votes! A Rainbow Snow Jar, a Golden Competitor Stamp and 100,000 IcePoints are waiting for you - Alongside the opportunity to fund an item for free!



Every participant will also receive a randomly chosen 2016 Pinata as a thanks for their efforts. It's safe to say that we all had a lot of fun - And we hope that you did, too!

All the winners may send in an Item Request (where they will not be charged).
Another month has gone by and it's time for another Recode Preview!



This month we will talk a bit about the Raffle as well as minor improvements to the site as a whole.



To start with, we've added more links on the page. Now you have a link to the Raffle Store, a Statistics page where you can see a ton of new statistics, and you even have a handy link back to the Meteora map!


Remember you can right click this and click 'View Image' to see it full sized!

Another update to the raffle is how we've streamlined the page. No more drop-down menus or annoying blue boxes. You can also use your VIP Ticket and Discounted Ticket right on the page!



And for anyone who is interested in their stats, you will get to see all of them! The Raffle Statistics will show you all sorts of stats for yourself and statistics for everyone overall.



For anyone like me who has a habit of accidentally clicking things, we've added in confirmations before using certain items!



And that concludes this month's Recode Preview, remember to put all of your ideas in the Ideas & Suggestions forum section so we can know what you want to see with the recode!
Planets certainly have never looked this huggable!




Our very own lovely @Remlyn has funded two item bundles. Now available for your Pets to play with are the Mercury Plushie, Venus Plushie, Earth Plushie, Mars Plushie, Jupiter Plushie, Saturn Plushie, Uranus Plushie, Neptune Plushie, Pluto Plushie and Terrarium.




All the Planet Plushies are available in the Space Quest section of the Quest Store for 50 Quest Points each. The Terrarium can be found in the Toy Shop and as a prize from Samuel's Plushie Quest. You're not the only one collecting the Terrarium, though, the Space Quest is also looking for them.



In other news, the Toy Claw Machine can now be opened! Inside you will find this year's Pinata items, Party or Pinata Morphing Potions, or if you're really lucky you might find a very rare prize.



This is a reminder for everyone that the Colouring Contest is coming to a close soon! Voting will close on January 23rd, so if you haven't already, make your way to the Contest Page and vote for your favourite entry!

Do you love Remlyn's item bundles and want to fund your own? Go to the Request Page to find out how.
What's this? A new year means updated Terms and Conditions and a new Privacy Policy.

We highly advise you to give them both a good read.



You might notice that the Terms and Conditions are looking just the teeniest, tiniest bit different; and you would be right! Our Moderators have rewritten them entirely and we are very excited to introduce our new infraction system.

Previously, we have been working with a three strike system. Now, everything will be worth a certain number of infraction points. Reminders are worth 0 infraction points, while Warnings are on a scale of 10-100 infraction points. All of the updated rules and their corresponding point values can be seen on the Terms and Conditions page.

From now on, when you receive a Reminder or a Warning from a Moderator, it will be through the Support Site instead of through Private Messaging. If you have any questions about your Reminder or Warning, you will be able to discuss it with the Moderators there.



Additionally, we will be expiring infraction points that are over a year old from now on. This includes Warnings and Reminders issued before the implementation of our new system.

You can look at your old and current infraction points HERE.

We would also like to announce a slight change in the artistry ranks. @Quil will be joining @Shibe as a Pet Artist! We cannot wait to see your newest work, Quil!

The amazing Colouring Contest is going into the next phase!



You can no longer submit entries. Instead, the voting has officially begun! Starting today, you can choose your favourite entry from all of the lovely submissions we have received and give it your vote. Make sure to pick your personal winner before January 23rd. A note to everyone that submitted an entry: Keep in mind that the contest is held anonymously. Asking other users to vote for you or telling them which entry is yours will disqualify you.

I don't know which one to pick! They are all so gorgeous!



Talking about gorgeous, this new Hidden Avatar is waiting for you to grab it, so try your best to figure it out. It was funded by our very own @sparks567!
All good things must come to an end and, sadly, that includes our New Year festivities. All 2016 Pinatas have been removed from the NPC Shops and Quests will no longer give them out.


How many Pinatas were you able to snatch up?



Pinata Mania will also be closing later today, so this is your last chance to obtain those cute Pet Balloons (and the last Pinatas)!



A little reminder that today is the last day to enter in our Colouring Contest! Send your entries to @Quil before midnight tonight for a chance to earn some fabulous prizes, including the opportunity to fund an item of your choice!



We hope you enjoyed the event!


We hinted at this in previous news posts but we have finally opened our User Requested Pet Colours!

Through this system you can pick a pet species and pet colour that you want to see created on site and we will make that dream a reality! You must choose from a list of pre-existing colours and species to make a new pet combination. You can also suggest ideas for the pose, colours, and even the morphing potion. We will show you work-in-progress steps throughout the pet creating process to ensure the pet ends up to your liking.



We will be opening and closing Pet Requests without notice depending on our availability and active number requests. If you're wanting to request a pet please keep an eye out for when they're open!



Of course if pets aren't your thing, you can also use our Item Request or Hidden Avatar Request systems to bring your other ideas to life!
So, we heard you like Rainbow Pets. How about some more of them?



That's right, the Rainbow Traptur and Rainbow Xephyr have arrived! These paint loving critters can be all yours - If you know how to get them, that is!



The Rainbow Traptur Morphing Potion has been added to the Jigsaw Puzzles. Complete it by adding one of each basic Traptur Morphing Potions into the mix. The Rainbow Xephyr Morphing Potion has been added to the Golden Touch for 400,000 IcePoints. Both of these MPs will stock in the I.C.E Shop for 500 IceCash each (450 IC for Gold Account users) until the end of the month.



Alternatively, you can create the Rainbow Snow Jar by adding one of every basic, non-pose-changing Snow Jar to the Puzzle.



We hope you've been enjoying our New Year Event! Make sure to get all the Pinatas and Pet Balloons before Pinata Mania closes and the Pinatas leave the NPC Shops and Quests on Friday January 15th!
It looks like the Traveling Audrils have departed, aiming to find a new and interesting home in another dimension. In their stead, it seems like another type of Audril has arrived to fill Terrafrost with colour and joy!



That's right, it is a whole new colour! We are glad to present the Rainbow Audril! 'But Staff!', I can hear you say. 'How can we get one of these pretties?' - Worry not, it's easy!



The Rainbow Audril Morphing Potion will be available through the Jigsaw Puzzles. In order to create it, you will have to combine all 14 basic Morphing Potions (That means colours that will not change your Pet's pose). Or you could go check out the I.C.E. Shop. It's available for 500 IceCash (450 IceCash for Gold Accounts). In case that's not what you want to do...



... you could always create a Rainbow Snow Jar using a similar method - Simply add one of every 15 basic Snow Jars to the Jigaw Puzzle to receive your very special price. Again, you could also check out the I.C.E. Shop and pay 1,000 IceCash for it (Gold Users pay 900 IceCash instead).

Note that every user that had previously unlocked the Traveling Audril has automatically unlocked the new Rainbow Audril instead. The same goes for the Morphing Potions - All Traveling Audril Morphing Potions have mysteriously transformed into Rainbow Audril Morphing Potions!

It seems like Trivvy handed out some of the Rainbow Snow Jars to those who managed to solve her last Trivia! Generous.



With the release of the new colours come the Rainbow Snow Jar Ice Cube! Try getting your hands on it to add it to your collection.



And yet another Pet has come to play! The Flying Dabu has joined the ranks of Flying Pets. It was created for @Disruptive to make up for the loss of the Traveling Audril, a Pet they funded quite a while ago.



Of course, it comes with a stunning Flying Dabu Morphing Potion, which will be stocking in the I.C.E. Shop for 500 IceCash (450 IceCash for Gold Accounts) as well as the Plot Store for 5 Plot Points!

In case you cannot see the changed Audril or Audril Morphing Potion, try hard refreshing by pressing CTRL and F5. If that doesn't do it for you, you'll have to wait a bit longer for our cache to update!

You know, it wouldn't be a true New Year in Terrafrost without...



... a Colouring Contest!

To see the image in its full size, simply click on it!

It's time to fill this beautiful drawing with colour! It does not matter if you are into traditional or digital art, as long as you make the image come to life, you get to enter!



Rules:

1) All work submitted must be your own. You cannot ask another user, a friend or a family member to participate in your stead.
2) The contest is held anonymously. Showing your artwork to other users during the contest will be treated as cheating, disqualifying you from the contest.
3) Your image must be uploaded and sent to @Quil by January 15th, 11:59:59 pm. It does not matter where or how you upload it. Your submission will count as long as it is sent to @Quil within the timeframe.

5) All entries submitted must be considered appropriate to the Terms and Conditions of IcePets.

Starting on January 16th you, the users, will get to vote for your favourite entry. As mentioned above, the voting will be held anonymously to prevent voting for friends. But, you may be asking, what will the winners receive?



First place

Second Place: 50,000 IcePoints, a mysterious-looking item and the Golden Competitor Stamp

Third place: 25,000 IcePoints, a mysterious-looking item and the Golden Competitor Stamp

We hope everyone has been enjoying Pinata Mania! Just to add to all the fun, we are releasing two more Pinatas… but not just any Pinatas...

Introducing… the Pinata Trido and the Pinata Sharshel!


You can’t get us from Pinata Mania!





The Pinata Trido Morphing Potion and Pinata Sharshel Morphing Potion will be available in the Snow Jar Igloo for 25,000 IcePoints each. They will also be available in the I.C.E Shop for 500 IceCash (450 IceCash for Gold Members!) until the end of the month.


Shepherd

It looks like @Nexinhah has requested a new Hidden Avatar! No surprise, it seems to be Makoat related. Do you think you can figure out how to get this one? I'm sure you can solve it without a hint.



Have your own ideas for Hidden Avatars or even Items that you want to see become a reality? Check out the User Requests page for more details!



Last but not least, the Happy New Year Profile Skin is now unlockable for all of the profile collectors out there!
We hope everyone's been enjoying all the new Pinatas and prizes that are inside of them!



Just to sweeten the deal, all new pinatas have been added to every quest prize pools, so get questing!



The Wooden Treasure Chest Ice Cube and Icy Treasure Chest Ice Cube have both been given a face-lift and a name change! They will be named Treasure Chest Ice Cube and Ice Treasure Chest Ice Cube respectively.


Pinata Smasher

You may have seen this new Hidden Avatar floating around the site! Surely you wouldn't hurt a poor pinata to get this, would you?




It's time for some new User Requests! Can you guess which pet colour is this user's favourite? Angelic? Nah. 60s! These new plushies were funded by @Kirsty! In order they are 60s Ori Plushie, 60s Traptur Plushie, 60s Zabeu Plushie, 60s Dabu Plushie, and the 60s Audril Plushie. You can find these stocking in Plushie Mania and they will be requested in Samuel's Plushie Quest.




There's another User Request too! @Nexinhah has requested this item bundle, and this time it doesn't include Makoats! In order these items are Editor Scrapbook, Ban Hammer, Painters Palette, 404 Item Not Found, and Baby Sharshel Plushie.
These items will stock in the Book Shop, Battle Shop, Grooming Parlor, Battle Shop, and Plushie Mania respectively! You may also see the Baby Sharshel Plushie being requested in Samuel's Plushie Quest.



And one last User Request to hold everyone over. @RiverStarr has requested a Rave Ridix Plushie! Complete with his lollipop, this little plushie can be found in Plushie Mania and will be requested in Samuel's Plushie Quest as well.



Want to see your own item idea come to life on IcePets? Submit a User Request and make your dream item become reality! We may even be opening up another type of request soon...

Happy New Year Everyone!

2015 has been an amazing year for our whole IcePets community, and here’s to a great start of 2016! We hope everyone is having an amazing night, and perhaps to help you enjoy it…


I’m filled with amazing surprises!

It looks like Pinata Mania is back once again! It will start every 30 minutes, so head on over to have some fun! (There are plenty of new pinatas and prizes this year).



In addition to this, new pinata items are being released in the shops at the Common Rarity, so restock them while supplies last!





The first of the month already?! I guess that means it's time to tally up these votes and announce this month's Member of the Month! Congratulations to...



@Nati



Thank you for being such a great part of our community! You will receive 50,000 IP and this exclusive avatar:



Some things said about Nati:

-Nati was the first one to welcome me to the site. She's very helpful and always seems to have the answers to everything.
- She's super active on the boards, and always ready to lend a hand! She hands out compliments whenever she can and it's incredibly refreshing to see. Nati is a great member of the community and she really deserves my vote for this month.
-All month long (longer than that, really), I have seen Nati being nice and helpful all over the site and even being productive with trying to organize some things on the Boards for us (like the hoarding Topic). ^_^ Nati is also very friendly and supportive of other users and has stood out to me this month. ^_^


As for this month's Staff of the Month, give a big congratulations to...



@psyqualia



From helping out on the forums, answering support tickets, to helping out with everything behind the scenes, psyqualia has been an extremely active and important member of our staff! To celebrate, we've created the following item in their honour!


Hedgehog Plushie

I bet you're wondering how you get it! Well psyqualia is a moderator after all, make sure you follow the rules!



To bring in the New Year we've added a small handful of items to the ICE Shop. These items will be available throughout the month of January for 500 IceCash each, or 450 IceCash for users with Gold Accounts. After January they will be removed so get them while you can!
