Exhibited Press

Art Theft
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 7th Jun 2011
So it was brought to my attention that a couple of people on DeviantArt were stealing artwork from Exhibited, printing them out, tracing over them and uploading them as their own work, with the art from Exhibited "referenced" (mind you, this was not credited in the description.). This is.. Well, not allowed. The copyright lies solely with Exhibited and the original artist; each image was paid for and created (many hours of hard work from our wonderful artists!) for the sole use of Exhibited, so that you can see what your dinosaurs look like.

So I'd just like to reconfirm a particular section of the terms of service for everyone:

"Exhibited's images, text and overall content is copyrighted (c) to me, the owner of the game, & original artists. You agree not to take any picture, edit it or otherwise and pass it off as your own, unless you first have written permission from me."

Please don't take artwork that is not your own.

Positive Edit: The pooper scooper is available in the scale shop. :P It comes with a whopping 750 uses and will fully clean your enclosure, as requested on the suggestions board.
MINI COMPETITION
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 1st Jun 2011
So I have a mini competition for you guys, where every user who participates will guarantee themselves a small prize:

A zombie cookie. I believe this item was very popular due to boosting +45-50 on all 3 stats per dino when used, so I'm hoping it's enough to tempt you to participate. ;)



All you have to do is:

- Draw "EXHIBITED" on a piece of paper, card or similar.
- Take a picture of you holding it up, but where the paper/card etc is hiding your face, so you can only see the card & writing and your fingers. Optionally you can add your user id too.
- Upload it to tinypic or photobucket or imageshack and send me the link in a message.
- Get a zombie cookie & help Exhibited out
- ????
- Profit.

:D

An example image for another game is: here.

Entries must be in by Wednesday the 8th of June, so you'll need to be quick!

Thanks guys!
Pinch, punch, first of the month!

Some updates:

* The monthly cron had a slight delay today but it's all run through now. You'll notice also that on club pages, if a club won this month, it will be unable to win next month. This is to make it fair so that other clubs get a chance, without one certain club dominating it. (You know who you are, Tooth!)
* As of next month, you'll have to go to your club page to get your reward. This month ran as usual.
* I also fixed the club studs. >.>
* The new monthly item is here, albeit a bit late. It's Grapefruit Juice. You can pour it into your tank to force all your fish to breed (if you have space for them!).


Minor updates
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 29th May 2011
Some updates:

* The wishing well gives out slightly more items than it used to.
* All users can now edit their posts.
* Player shop search have a new look and new functionality. It's pretty neat.
* I think I'm almost ready to release overlays, many thanks to all our testers. :D
* I'm also about to change errands a little. I'm cleaning up the code primarily, but I'll also put in a drop down system where you can select which items you give to the NPCs.

That's all for now. :O

Hello everyone! With the new EX-integrated overlay feature about to be released, I'd like to inform you of an incoming change:

I will be removing the option to change a dinosaur's picture. If this feature stays, there is no point to the overlay system. As it stands, creating an overlay and selling it on for profits is not allowed. But once this system is implemented, it will not only be allowed but encouraged - but it cannot exist at the same time as people being able to use their own urls.

For more information on the new overlay system, click this link.

Please be aware that dino images will revert back to EX standard ones soon, but I'll keep the URLs of images you've currently made and will display them in the owner area once I remove the option for changing pictures. :)

Edit: If, for example, you have a completely custom dinosaur image made for your dinosaur, don't worry. You can make that into an overlay and, as it will have a solid bg and not transparent, none of the old EX dinosaur will show through. When it's made into an overlay it will become an item you can equip to the dino. :)

Edit II: In reference to the above, yes, you can keep it exclusive for yourself also. Selling it on is completely optional, of course!

Edit III: Kitei (#5) has already started making overlays. An example of her latest one:



:D
Coelophysis
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 19th May 2011
Coelophysis has been revamped! It will start circulating in the lab again.



Big thanks to Tyme for drawing it, and Ank for making all the markings. :D
New Updates! Handy Tweaks. :D
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 17th May 2011
- Account settings has had a makeover.
- If you hover over herbivore counts, it will tell you how many thirsty herbivores there are, and the ages.
- Stats pages are now updated once a night. The sidebar hasn't been changed.
- The HOF is no longer live, but calculated once per night (at 2.30am EX time. :P). However, when I was doing this I made a couple typos so some dinos may have a bunch more days calculated to their HOF time. ALSO: only active dinosaurs will appear on the HOF now. No longer if someone raises a really awesome dinosaur and then leaves it to rot will it show on the HOF!

From what I can tell, the server has been speedier lately with all the little tweaks I'm making. Keep me posted with your comments. :)

I'm also doing lots of other things right now, so check back here every so often. I'll edit with more updates soon.

* Oh, and, prepare for a new layout soon. We have one in the works. Kitty has itchy feet again. ;D

-- Edit at 2.50pm:
* Scales page has a slight change.
* You can now buy one extra recurring lab limit that will permenantly +1 a month.
* The t-rex potion is in the scale shop.

-- Edit 18/05/11 @ 0:30am:
* Finally updated all the contest entries.

-- Edit 18/05/11 @ 1.30pm:
* You can now edit roleplay information, and roleplay characters.
* Fish food can be bought en mass. :P
* OOC Posts now bump RPs.
News Updates - Revamps, Security & More
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 12th May 2011
Because of some troublemakers, I've changed a few things.

1) You must activate each email address. All current members are set to preactivated, so don't worry for now.

2) If your IP address changes from the one you logged in with, it will automatically log you out.

3) We had a troll attempt to deface the economy for the second time running this week so many people had very expensive items bought from their player shops. I erased shop tills that were too high and Herbal has given all the items back into player inventories. If you have any money left over, please transfer it to me (#1) so I can get rid of it. If there's anything else you need returned, it's probably best to tell Herbal because she can bug me on AIM. I'd very much appreciate your cooperation with this. <3

4) The server is being twitchy but several tweaks have been made, hence why you might have seen a page or two going down every so often. This is an ongoing process and if it just can't be fixed through optimization, we'll eventually have to upgrade.

Now for some better things:

Lineheraptor & Sinornithosaurus have had their siamese markings revamped:




Troodons have also just had their markings updated so will be circulating again.

AND sandwiches and icecreams have been revamped:




In order for everyone being so patient with me, I have given every single dinosaur in the game a +5 stat boost in all stats. :) I love you guys!
Server Blip
Posted by Kitty (#1) on 7th May 2011
Whoop, the server seemed to go funny last night. From what I can tell, it was the tmp folder being full. This means that anyone who wanted to login or do something new couldn't because it was already full.

This appears to be fied now though. If you're still having any problems, please let me know.

Thanks guys!

(Stuff like this always happens when I'm sleepin'!)

EDIT: It happened again, this time when I went out. LOL. I'll be monitoring this for the rest of the day now. :3
