Cosmic Andy: moving on.

Cosmic Andy: Sponsored activities has started now.
Pyewacket: Host organized events will be coming back
Cosmic Andy: Sponsored activities are done by members.

Gemmy: like voucher hunts?
Cosmic Andy: Like the voucher hunt yep
Cosmic Andy: musical chairs etc
Cosmic Andy: None software based games
Peach Toadstool: ghost races
Cosmic Andy: yep ghost races
Cosmic Andy: So i’ll be working directly with members on this over the next 2 weeks to get more and more members helping and hosting.
Cosmic Andy: Any questions on this?

Pammie: who do we see to become a host
Luna: Pyewacket
Pyewacket: lol me
Pyewacket: well for regular games

Cosmic Andy: You can apply at https://www.vzones.com/sponsor/

Cosmic Andy: Moving on…
Kizza: There was talk of increasing the number prizes per game and yet they remain the same
Cosmic Andy: No plans yet to increase prizes per game. Plans next will be to improve the prizes.

Cosmic Andy: moving on…

Cosmic Andy: So for 2018 that is everything that is new. Christmas is the big focus and next big event.

Pammie: poofing and lag have been a nightmare lately…any news ?
Cosmic Andy: I’ll come to that shortly.

Cosmic Andy: Now it’s story time with Andy
Cosmic Andy: Some of you might not be aware but I was an original player in the 90s.
Cosmic Andy: For many years I played as a regular member.
Cosmic Andy: I played the games
Cosmic Andy: I went shopping
Cosmic Andy: I collected everything.
Dia: did you decorate
Cosmic Andy: I made a few bad turfs yep lol
Cosmic Andy: So I know exactly what it’s like to be a member
Cosmic Andy: When you become staff, a developer or owner it’s different.
Cosmic Andy: I get from a to b much quicker <grin>
Cosmic Andy: But the important point is that I know and can still feel what it’s like to be a member.
Cosmic Andy: I left around 2000
Cosmic Andy: I came back 2013 and in 2014 and joined up again.
Cosmic Andy: But what i came back to was what I call a mess.
Cosmic Andy: Now remember my last time playing was 2000
Cosmic Andy: So when I came back I was excited.
Cosmic Andy: But what i found was problem after problems, members fighting in public, banning and blocking and just all over the place.
Cosmic Andy: So I made a few offers to purchase the business and failed.
Cosmic Andy: When we managed to purchase the business later on it was with a view of bringing back VZones and resolving the problems so we can have a happy, well run place to live in and keep the history of what is a very special place.
Cosmic Andy: So you may not always like changes, ideas or things we do but I want you to know that anything we do it’s being done with the view of it being the best solution for VZones.
Cosmic Andy: It’s impossible to please everyone. We understand that.
Cosmic Andy: Some things we do may not be popular but again it’s done with what we believe is the best thing for the long term.
Cosmic Andy: I’ll take questions shortly.

Cosmic Andy: Official support changes….
Cosmic Andy: If you need official support it now needs to be from a support ticket or forum post.
Cosmic Andy: Facebook & social media is not a place to get official customer support, billing issues etc.
Cosmic Andy: I see lot’s of people posting on facebook expecting answers to questions that are lost in posts on Facebook.
Cosmic Andy: This is why we moved the support to places that we can track, log etc.
Cosmic Andy: So posting on FB complaining your issue is not getting resolved won’t help as we won’t monitor in detail to find questions.
Cosmic Andy: So if it’s important and needs an answer please submit a ticket or forum post.
Cosmic Andy: If you need help with login/forum then let us know and we will help you sort it.
Cosmic Andy: So why did we do this?
Cosmic Andy: Over the past few months the posts on the Facebook group were starting to be like what it was in 2014.
Cosmic Andy: conspiracy theories, speculation and rumors
Cosmic Andy: Which is really not helpful for anyone and it’s really not helpful for new members to come and see it.
Cosmic Andy: If you have ideas for changes or problems then it’s perfectly fine to post it in the official FB group.
Cosmic Andy: Put posting messages like the message PetMePlease posted a few days ago saying “I think they offered the turfs back to sell more VIP memberships” and shouldnt offer what they can’t deliver is not what the official facebook group was designed for.
Cosmic Andy: My point with this is that myself & everyone at VZones are trying to build the community up, make this place amazing and make it fun.
Cosmic Andy: So what I’m asking is can we all work together to do this.
Cosmic Andy: We all need to be positive and help each other out.
Cosmic Andy: We need to look after each other.
Cosmic Andy: Open our turfs to each other
Cosmic Andy: Sub games, swap items, help and care
Cosmic Andy: To confirm if you have a complaint, problem or idea that’s fine.
Cosmic Andy: Even message me direct if you need to complain. I’ll talk to anyone.
Cosmic Andy: So from now on if anything is posted on the official facebook page, forums or FB fan group which is classed as bashing, arguing, fighting etc it will be removed.
Cosmic Andy: This is with a view of keeping it positive for everyone else to enjoy what we have.
Cosmic Andy: Nearly done on this and will take questions.
Cosmic Andy: I’m not a member of the unofficial fan group but I was sent a copy of a post by Larry complaining that VZones has lost it’s magic and not the same as it was in 1995.
Cosmic Andy: Now I can promise you we are doing everything we can to make it better than 1995.
Cosmic Andy: This will take time and a new style of magic will be back. For some people the magic is back and others not yet.
Cosmic Andy: As Shanny said it’s 2018 now. We live in a very different time to 1995.
Cosmic Andy: But my point is. Everyone feels the magic differently and it will come back to them at different times.
Cosmic Andy: Ok taking questions on this before we move on.

K1TT1: Andy if we have an issue or a need what is the fastest most direct almost guaranteed way to reach you
Cosmic Andy: Make a support ticket with subject ATTN: ANDY

Cosmic Andy: Any questions before I move onto the final 2 topics?
Cosmic Andy: Questions now please only on what was just talked about. Any other question at the end.
Cosmic Andy: See: https://www.vzones.com/terms-behavior/
Cosmic Andy: Look out for each. Help each other. Have fun and enjoy it.

Cosmic Andy: Ok moving on.

Cosmic Andy: Poofing & technical stuff
Cosmic Andy: Last few days we had some tcp drops (poofing)
Cosmic Andy: We are doing two things related to this.
Cosmic Andy: 1) Solving the issue that caused it this week. It’s still being worked on but it’s being caused by turfs that were moved from NH/DS old databases.
Cosmic Andy: All the past owners never had the issues we have with moving massive amounts of items from one world to another.
Cosmic Andy: It’s not a simple task and causing lot’s of issues you don’t see that we are working on and planning changes for.
Cosmic Andy: So not really much else I can say about it other than we know it’s a pain and we are working on it. Without stopping moving data over we may see some more until it’s fully sorted.
Cosmic Andy: What we are planning to release in the coming months is an update to the client with auto relogin option.
Cosmic Andy: We have tested this locally and it works well but building it into the client with settings and to be tested will take longer.
Cosmic Andy: When enabled it will simply re connect you automatically.
Cosmic Andy: VZones requires a constant TCP connection to the server.
Cosmic Andy: It’s got no buffer like you’ll see in modern software which would lag you and pull you back in.
Cosmic Andy: This drops, exits and your out.
Cosmic Andy: So it’s just saving you the hassle of having to re log in manually.
Cosmic Andy: Good for over night parking also <grin>

Cosmic Andy: Lot’s of rumors still about Bill so if anyone has any questions related to this please ask now so once and for all it can be answered and the rumors stopped.
Cosmic Andy: Bill quit working for VZones because he didn’t like the direction we were taking it. Simple as that really.
Cosmic Andy: It’s not a case of bringing Bill back. Bill did not and does not want to come back.
Cosmic Andy: We have people working on the code now full time & learning every part of it to a level that has never been done before.
Cosmic Andy: We soon will hopefully have an original developer from 94 coming to join us. Not yet confirmed and still working on it. This will help bring speed to the developers we have now who are having to learn from the ground up.
Cosmic Andy: Any questions on this before I move to the last toppic?

Cosmic Andy: Ok last topic.
Cosmic Andy: 12 month membership plans have now been ended. If you already have an actice subscription for 12 months when the time comes you can renew it.
Cosmic Andy: But no new 12 month plans will be available.
Cosmic Andy: If you own a subscription now for 12 months you keep that as long as it’s active.
Cosmic Andy: So that will renew at the 12 month special price.
Cosmic Andy: We are also offering which you can signup for as a new subscription an option to take a break for upto 12 months.
Cosmic Andy: It costs $1 a year as a storage fee and during that time for as long as needed we will store everything you have.
Cosmic Andy: So if you come to England to hang out with me for 3 months and can’t come IW then thats your option

PetMePlease: Will we ever be able to make our login and pw’s our own? I cant remember the one I have now so If I log on from another place, its a bit confusing
Cosmic Andy: Ability to change logins will come in the future. It’s low priority now as the developers are working on learning every part of the system currently. This is the dev focus for the next few months.

Cosmic Andy: Ok open to any questions now on anything.

Jippo: are we getting pet avies back?
Cosmic Andy: Pet avies yes I want these to come back. Just want new better art for them.

Madness: Status of 2014 avie pocket tokens?
Cosmic Andy: 2014 turf/pocket tokens will come back 2019 once we have burned off more CC tokens at auctions.

Cosmic Andy: Art program is in progress….slowly coming as we are getting more new art come in and the process around all of that smooth first.

Lady Devra: Will there be any other way to spend CC Tokens ?
Lady Devra: other than the auctions.
Cosmic Andy: Auctions for CC tokens first. May see vendos next year but nothing planned yet.

Madness: What about getting stuck on ‘hourglass-z?’ Related to poof/lag?
Cosmic Andy: Hourglass no sorry. Should have covered that. This was caused by us working on a new backup system over the past week. Has stopped now while we continue work on dev server.

Lady Devra: nH Tokens ?
Cosmic Andy: NH tokens will come back as revalued tokens once we have finished moving turfs.
Cosmic Andy: mushroom turfs to be restored back to TST elevator 3. Not many of these turfs so will try and get done in December.

Madness: Can I get help w/ previously-restored turfs?
Cosmic Andy: Staff can help you with a turf problem yep

Royal Warrior IrishPrincess: an the other turf place in sk gledorn i think
Cosmic Andy: SK turfs not moved it’s a very very small number left to do. Will try Dec also for this.

Kizza: When will SK be open so we can have access to all the wonderful locales and the body changers for the SK avatars???
Cosmic Andy: SK bodies are soon. Polly/Chime can advise?
Cosmic Andy: SK bodies will be available soon.

Cosmic Andy: Riverview turf plan @ 1K we will review this rent.

Dia: Buddy would like to know why there was not a Veteran’s Day vendo…he says thank you for the poppy also

Cosmic Andy: I think we are done yep. Anyone need to ask anything before we go?

Madness: Is there a certian time I could borrow a staff member for turf issues?
Cosmic Andy: No fixed staff hours at this time nope sorry.

VaBelle: thought that was already the ase
Peach Toadstool: changing ties for changing roles… I don’t know why, but that somehow makes me think of Doctor Who
Pammie: lol
Cosmic Andy: I see lot’s of people posting on facebook expecting answers to questions that are lost in posts on Facebook.
Cosmic Andy: This is why we moved the support to places that we can track, log etc.
JohnJ: but some Still can’t get into Forums !
Lady Devra: file a ticket…

PetMePlease: some post that they HAVE submitting tix and havent heard anything .. then when they post on FB, they get responses
Peach Toadstool: tickets are personal, yep
Cosmic Andy: So posting on FB complaining your issue is not getting resolved won’t help as we won’t monitor in detail to find questions.
Cosmic Andy: So if it’s important and needs an answer please submit a ticket or forum post.
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: I only post my breakfast<shrug>
Cosmic Andy: If you need help with login/forum then let us know and we will help you sort it.

Cosmic Andy: conspiracy theories, speculation and rumors
shanny: yep
Furio: Jippo told me to sit here <react>

Cosmic Andy: Which is really not helpful for anyone and it’s really not helpful for new members to come and see it.
shanny: furio
Furio: hugss all <wave>
shanny: hugss
PetMePlease: Honestly Andy .. the only conspiracy i hear or should I say read, comes from U when world goes down and Ur accusing others of doing things to keep us from staying up
Cosmic Andy: If you have ideas for changes or problems then it’s perfectly fine to post it in the official FB group.
Cosmic Andy: Put posting messages like the message PetMePlease posted a few days ago saying “I think they offered the turfs back to sell more VIP memberships” and shouldnt offer what they can’t deliver is not what the official facebook group was designed for.
PetMePlease: that was posted on Madames page
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: ohhhh no you didn’t !!!!!
Cosmic Andy: My point with this is that myself & everyone at VZones are trying to build the community up, make this place amazing and make it fun.
Luna: ima make some popcorn <react>
Cosmic Andy: So what I’m asking is can we all work together to do this.
Gemmy: word
Kellie: amen!
JohnJ: yep
Jennifer: thats fine to post that on Madames page

Keellyn: is that what smells?
Luna: WTG
Cosmic Andy: Last few days we had some tcp drops (poofing)
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: alot
Pammie: major
K1TT1: bit of lag as well
Pammie: all week
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: 6 times during a game
Luna: massive
Cosmic Andy: We are doing two things related to this.
miracle: was told it happens when turfs get moved
Peach Toadstool: switch to UDP
Luna: sorry… just wanted to add a word also
Peach Toadstool: kidding
Dia: hey…we stayed inworld thru the radio show this week <react> progress
Pammie: lol for sure
Cosmic Andy: 1) Solving the issue that caused it this week. It’s still being worked on but it’s being caused by turfs that were moved from NH/DS old databases.
Pammie: i knew that
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: just give everyone 100K and we can move on
shanny: lol
Kellie: LOL says Kellie
miracle: pft
Keellyn: ::snort::
shanny: i just need gold
Pammie: there ya go lol
shanny: lol
miracle: more like millions,sigh
Cosmic Andy: All the past owners never had the issues we have with moving massive amounts of items from one world to another.
miracle: 100k peanuts
Luna: I wish i had peanuts then
Cosmic Andy: It’s not a simple task and causing lot’s of issues you don’t see that we are working on and planning changes for.
Jennifer: I have only 50k
Luna: <sigh>
Pammie: not to mention how many items are glitched in the turfs
Keellyn: none of us have massive amounts of items ::innocent look::
Gemmy: my containers are a mess lol
miracle: lmao
Pammie: i know i dont anymore
Polly: could be that too, pammie, good answer.
Jennifer: omg Pet tyty your sooo sweet!
Cosmic Andy: So not really much else I can say about it other than we know it’s a pain and we are working on it. Without stopping moving data over we may see some more until it’s fully sorted.
miracle: what is hoarding?
Pammie: hey remember certain items would gltitch your body
PetMePlease: <grin>
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: scrolling,..I was rebeering
Pammie: i was the first to report that lol
Cosmic Andy: What we are planning to release in the coming months is an update to the client with auto relogin option.
Lady Devra: *sis on hands*
Rodeo bad chick: very nice
K1TT1: ooo that sounds neat
miracle: are they cold
PetMePlease: LOL Dev
Pammie: i cant afford to hoard any more, but do love my pixels
Cosmic Andy: We have tested this locally and it works well but building it into the client with settings and to be tested will take longer.
Rodeo bad chick: thats understandable
Cosmic Andy: When enabled it will simply re connect you automatically.
Pammie: All this poofing has caused a loss in tokens…
K1TT1: Question Andy
miracle: nice
K1TT1: if you drop out here
Kellie: I’ve been cleaning out my storage turfs and would LOVE to be able to pawn at 100% on a more regular basis.
K1TT1: and it auto relogs you into summerland
K1TT1: when here is back up
miracle: 100 percent pawn help with the hoarding at all???
K1TT1: will you kick us out of summerland so it will auto us back here
Kellie: It helps me.
Cosmic Andy: VZones requires a constant TCP connection to the server.
K1TT1: and will it be just one avi on an account or all
Pammie: i be willing to pay you 100 % on any stuff i might want <grin>
Furio: doesn’t auto log me in anywhere .. I just get booted and can’t get in <shrug>
Cosmic Andy: It’s got no buffer like you’ll see in modern software which would lag you and pull you back in.
miracle: LOL
Cosmic Andy: This drops, exits and your out.
Cosmic Andy: So it’s just saving you the hassle of having to re log in manually.
Lady Devra: cept for those times it won’t let you go <react> and you cant get back in
Cosmic Andy: Good for over night parking also <grin>
Coal: That is an awesome change actually
Lady Devra: and you are hosting… pain in the ass…
Dia: ohhh that would be good for parking
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: can someone validate my parking?
VaBelle: does it work after a maintenance?
Pammie: in one game we poofed near 20 times
Pammie: it was real bad
Peach Toadstool: ooh, nice
L’AD: but we kept playing
Cosmic Andy: Lot’s of rumors still about Bill so if anyone has any questions related to this please ask now so once and for all it can be answered and the rumors stopped.
Pammie: yup, was a very short game and had a super host
Polly: yeah i think that was me, lol,, bringing a turf in. sorry
Luna: bad Polly
Luna: go to the corner
Madness: I’d just love to know what happened to him.
Pammie: i dont know what happened to bill
Gemmy: lol
Rodeo bad chick: face first
Polly: hey i own real estate in that corner already<react>
Luna: or relog in 20 tims, youre dicision
Lady Devra: I personally am sick of reading that IF Bill was brought back… none of this would be happeneing
Luna: times*
Pammie: wanna let us in
shanny: amen dev
Cosmic Andy: Bill quit working for VZones because he didn’t like the direction we were taking it. Simple as that really.
Madness: One of the first people I met in hallway.
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: me too
Luna: I trip on my cat in the hallway
Gemmy: its been beat into the ground…ppl leave..it happens and always will
Cosmic Andy: It’s not a case of bringing Bill back. Bill did not and does not want to come back.
Cosmic Andy: We have people working on the code now full time & learning every part of it to a level that has never been done before.
Pammie: you everwhere your at now ?
Pammie: oppps
Pammie: ment for a chat
Cosmic Andy: We soon will hopefully have an original developer from 94 coming to join us. Not yet confirmed and still working on it. This will help bring speed to the developers we have now who are having to learn from the ground up.
Rodeo bad chick: If bill wanted to come back I feel he could pay for an account like the rest of us..
Cosmic Andy: Any questions on this before I move to the last toppic?
Pammie: nope
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: Bill is like Negan
Gemmy: LOL
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: We are Bill
Pammie: oh
Cosmic Andy: Ok last topic.
VaBelle: re: changes, thanks to those responsible for allowing an address to come up when you’ve lost your forum id so you can actually get a new one on yourown
Lady Devra: don’t log out <shrug> then no problems
Keellyn: shit I put away the whoopy cushion
VaBelle: pw not id
Cosmic Andy: 12 month membership plans have now been ended. If you already have an actice subscription for 12 months when the time comes you can renew it.
VaBelle: doen’t help with new equipmnt, lol
Cosmic Andy: But no new 12 month plans will be available.
Rodeo bad chick: ok
shanny: may i ask why
Madness: No grandfathering?
Pammie: cant afford to do that no how lol
Pammie: he said if you have one you can renew
Cosmic Andy: If you own a subscription now for 12 months you keep that as long as it’s active.
Madness: Ok missed that
shanny: no i dont have a yr
Kellie: So we will be offered a 12 month renewal if we currently have one.
Cosmic Andy: So that will renew at the 12 month special price.
Kellie: nm
shanny: was just curious
Cosmic Andy: We are also offering which you can signup for as a new subscription an option to take a break for upto 12 months.
miracle: is there a discount for paying 12 months??
Keellyn: not anymore
Cosmic Andy: It costs $1 a year as a storage fee and during that time for as long as needed we will store everything you have.
Lady Devra: WOW
Lady Devra: nice for those that need it
Rodeo bad chick: oh wow Andy fantastic
Dia: wow, yeah that is nice
Pammie: what i do notice is certain games arent played by many, just wondering why amount of players went from 5 to 6 players ?
Cosmic Andy: The $1/ year charge is basically just to keep an active subscription going to track the backup with your data in.
Coal: You know, that is freaking nice for people who just want to keep their avy
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: ‘m kinda coming to the age where I probably should be paying monthly anyway<shrug>
Cosmic Andy: So if you come to England to hang out with me for 3 months and can’t come IW then thats your option
Lady Devra: always has been 6 players
Lady Devra: since BETA
Cosmic Andy: <grin>
PetMePlease: Will we ever be able to make our login and pw’s our own? I cant remember the one I have now so If I log on from another place, its a bit confusing
shanny: lol
Coal: If we hang out with you, we better have a special connection like VZCon, think on the level of Blizzconn lol
VaBelle: You wouldn’t let us use you laptop jk
Keellyn: be careful what you ask for Andy
miracle: lol
Furio: so you’re admitting that we have log in problems in England Andy? <react>
shanny: i can cook n bake lol
Cosmic Andy: Ability to change logins will come in the future. It’s low priority now as the developers are working on learning every part of the system currently. This is the dev focus for the next few months.
Cosmic Andy: Ok open to any questions now on anything.
Kellie: Programming question
PetMePlease: TY .. I can wait.. just gotta save that 1st email LOL
Kellie: Kellie said
Jippo: are we getting pet avies back?

Peach Toadstool: the five player limit was a Metro thing… new VZones always had six
Luna: Andy i have a question via ESP after meeting?
Cosmic Andy: Pet avies yes I want these to come back. Just want new better art for them.

Lady Devra: blank*
Lady Devra: Will there be any other way to spend CC Tokens ?
Lady Devra: other than the auctions.
Dia: Can we get sparkles for Christmas
Cosmic Andy: Art program is in progress….slowly coming as we are getting more new art come in and the process around all of that smooth first.
Peach Toadstool: I think the right-click name ID on text is a bit buggy
Lady Devra: No it isnt
Luna: no
Cosmic Andy: Auctions for CC tokens first. May see vendos next year but nothing planned yet.
Lady Devra: and our tokens from nH ?
Peach Toadstool: odd; it was for me even recently
Madness: What about getting stuck on ‘hourglass-z?’ Related to poof/lag?
Lady Devra: what about those ?
Kellie: Having just learned about it I’m not finding it buggy at all.
Jennifer: when will mushroom turfs be back?
Peach Toadstool: sparkles?
shanny: i gotta feed fur baby shes yelling at me lol
The Incredible Cpt.Dialtone: what are VZ’s policies on border security?
Cosmic Andy: Hourglass no sorry. Should have covered that. This was caused by us working on a new backup system over the past week. Has stopped now while we continue work on dev server.
Lady Devra: <snort>
Madness: Like I can still receive, but not transmit.
Dia: Like Dark Matilda’s sparkles
Madness: Or hourglass{}
