Error displaying pet - why so many recently?

Hmm this hasn't happened to me but I'm seeing these a lot around people's signatures and trade rules recently (particularly when indicating "dreamies"). Last time I remember that happened was when the horse and fennec fox linearts changed, but that was ages ago, people would've changed those by now.

Did anything of the sorts happen recently? I haven't really been too active beyond collecting my monthly pets and events for quite a while.

    If you're seeing this error in stuff like people's dreamie lists, then the images in question were most likely of store pets.
    We recently had an update that added a tiny "C$" tag to the images of store pets, to make it more easy to recognize them as such:

    For this, the old images had to be replaced. With pets owned by users the image changes didn't cause issues, but with archive images, the old versions were removed, breaking their links.
    So all those broken images are store pets where users haven't yet switched the pics out for the new versions c:
dealing with some real life stuff atm, expect me to be slow to respond to any messages

Ahh that explains it! I knew it had to be something about replaced archive images, I just didn't know about this addition of the c$ tag. It's a useful feature btw! Thanks again for answering another question of mine ^^
