We need your feedback: Bigger, less frequent pound openings?

Postby Nick » Mon Apr 15, 2024 11:26 am

Hey everyone,

The pound is really popular these days so the 1300 pets we have in each opening get adopted quite quickly. If we increase the number of pets on offer this would improve that situation, but in order to not drain the pound's hoard too quickly we would have to reduce how often the pound opens in order to compensate.

So please vote on if you would like us to increase the pound opening size by 500 pets (to 1800 pets), and reduce the opening frequency from about 2.4 times per day to about 1.7 times per day.

to be clear, this would mean a push in more common-uncommon pets than rare+ ones, right?

Honestly I think their should be a pound or lost and found every 2 hours and lower the pound size to 500 make it so you can also accept 1 pet per pound. Or I think the pound should be just empty entirely

The extra pets will be in the same proportions as they already are, so rares will increase as well.

I think it's better to have infrequent openings to (ideally) give the most amount of people a chance (due to time zone, work/school breaks, etc.).

Also, the link on the news page leads to a hidden forum.

I do like the idea of not missing out on the pound, even with a lesser amount of pets.

still on the side of less frequent openings, one chance to pick from a lot of pets versus several chances to pick from a few pets seems better to me personally but idk. glad we could do a vote on it, ty nick!

considering things like timezones, work, school, and life commitments, i think the current system (more frequent openings, less pets) is probably still the ideal.

in my opinion the main "problem" with the pound is that we can see what pets will be available in the next opening. when people spot a high value pet in the upcoming opening alerts are sent out and a lot of people show up making the pound incredibly slow, making it almost impossible for us with slow internet to catch anything good. I don't think increasing the size is going to change this, but making adjustments so NO pets in the pound are visible until it opens would at least do something.
