I've been trying to track down the PPS Club thread. Does anybody remember it? :')

I agree about how the influx of new members has affected the value of pets. I always cry a little inside though when I look at old trading partners who haven't been on in YEARS and they have so many good pets just...sitting there...

Somebody did try to revive the Rant thread, but was quickly taken down xD You might have to make a tumblr blog for such things aha~


Oh my! Back in the day I had three Shimas, I can't find the trades, but I remember trading my other two for trades much similar to that xD

On the side note, I also never understood why they changed the style of this fox, I liked it.

    Shima fennecs were changed for much the same reasons as the old equimagine horses:
Note about related issues with CS fennec foxes:
Some users have made sure to remind us that we had a similar issue in 2010 with another CS artist (Shima.Luan) who (allegedly) copied from photograph(s) to produce the CS Fennec Foxes. I don't have it on hand but I believe there is sufficient proof of at least one of the growth stages being copied from a photograph. These are likely to also be replaced, but we don't have a new lineart yet, so we'll make a new announcement about those in the future.

    Here is the news thread will all the info. Since a huge reason for getting rid of the old linearts was concerns about the fact that some of them were traced, they will not be brought back any more.

I had no clue! Sorry for mentioning it, I haven't been on much so I wasn't aware. That's such a shame too that they were copied.

    Ahh it's nothing to apologize for, no worries^^ A lot of people who weren't around for the change discussion aren't really aware of why things got changed, and ofc, users who joined after the changes often don't even know that other lines existed at all.
    The fennecs were never discussed as much as the horses were, and even on the transformation thread they were only added to the OP as a side note. Even people who know why the horses got changed often wonder what happened with the fennecs.

    I don't think I heard about the reason the equi lines were retired until around the time we got the Yulynh lines? I was still pretty shy about exploring the forums in 2009 and early 10, so a lot of the community things that happened back then are things I only found out about afterwards.

The rainbow mane still has old lineart, as do the rest of those outcomes, i think (:

Unless there was lineart before that, but after the Tess horses?

    Nope, the RBM litter and its various offspring received a new lineart as well. As did the roadkill PPS, and the regular PPS ponies and horses.
    You can see the RBM's old lineart here on the comparison graphic - the same lines that were used for the top left horse were used for that litter.
    The roadkill PPS and the PPS ponies had lines you can still see here in the comparison chart for the zebra lines.

oh yes the lineart changes were big talk back in the day. and the retirement of shima as a whole. at least "behind the scenes" (aka not on cs but on offsite cs groups) i clearly remember drama. *eyes emoji*

malk pets also used to be super popular. hows the demand for those nowadays?
