Site update news

8th June 09

A big thanks to gLove, Leurai, kelseyk721, Aishiru, Hoshiko, Taethiana, nekoasato, kickthem, Da Wolfster, Draco_The_Wolf and Uber Lizzy for the amazing array of chibified people versions of CS pets I recieved today *^__^* you guys are incredible, thankyou very much :3 I hope I haven't missed anyone!

just a reminder that I'm currently bogged down with exams and stuff so I'm not really around much for the next 2 weeks - but expect to see some big updates once I'm done with exams as me and Nick have a lot planned :)

the email is working again, so please direct your questions there or post them on the help/suggestions forum as I don't really have the time to reply to PMs which can be answered elsewhere

thanks everyone, I understand that summer vacation has begun for a large proportion of you so CS is probably slower than ever but we hope to better accomodate you on a faster server soon.. :)

Hey everybody, it's Nick here :). You've all been asking me when I'll make some more "Nick pets". Well, they're here now! Head over to the "Nick's pets" page on the left to adopt.

The old horses on the horses page are gone now, we're got our great new growable ponies by equimagine there instead :). I hear that growable horses are coming soon.

Great big thanks from me and Tess for the huge thank-you note we received from you guys today! It's really amazing to see that sort of support from the community. I hope we can all work together to grow and improve Chicken Smoothie well into the future!

New horses!
If you check out the horse section, there is a new set of growable horses available for download - these were made by our newest artist equimagine who will be taking over the maintenance of the horse adoptables :)
The older horses will finally be retired from the horse page, so if anyone is keen to adopt one this will be your final chance. I will remove them in a few days. Any horses already adopted will still be safe, don't worry, they just won't be available for new adoptions.

p.s. I am very busy with university commitments at this time of year so you won't see much of me online until mid-July. Please contact the other staff if you need an urgent answer to something as I can't afford to spend much time here :(

Frequent 'General Error' pages and lots of lag (slow loading times) present on Chicken Smoothie:
These problems are due to an overloaded server (there are just too many of you guys now) We need to upgrade to a faster server but we can't afford it just yet.
We are looking for a solution to the problem and expect to upgrade in around a months time.

Please have patience in the meantime, and you don't need to report the general errors to staff. We're all experiencing them, and there's nothing we can do about it while on this server. Try setting up trades and adopting pets when there are fewer people online - so don't expect to get a lot done at peak times (this is generally during the afternoons & evenings in the US)

Thanks for the patience through this frustrating time ;) <3 Tess

You now have more control over who can and can't send you trade offers. Check out the new feature here:

We've now switched back to our old, slow server. In future, we hope to be able to afford to run the faster server all of the time.

The Easter Egg Hunt is over! Thanks to everyone who helped us celebrate Easter at Chicken Smoothie. I hope you enjoy your bunnies and Easter eggs.. :).

There's an Easter egg hunt on in the forums, look around some pages and check the very bottom of the page. If you find an egg, you'll see a big banner there which says "Click to claim your prize!"
