It has come to our attention that with our latest update to the Forum System a bug was spotted that has made the Points, Bank, Lottery, and Arcade systems inaccesible to you. As you may now be aware, we are always working hard behind the scenes to update our systems so we can combat spammers and keep security in tact so that Yakface remains a comfortable and grief-free environment. During this process we also needed to update the databases to ensure system integrity and performance. As a result, the new update seems to have un-linked everybody to the points and arcade. We are looking into the problem and hope to fix it shortly. Please do not fear, your points are saved and backed up in our systems and remain in tact.
We do however want to stress that we are actually looking into a new way of running the points system, rewarding points, and making them more usable. For the time being we have deactivated points on the back-end and are working towards a resolution that can continue to reward you guys for participation. With the HUGE success we have had with "giveaways" our trends may evolve to include more of that and focus on the most "current" active players on a monthly basis. We want to reward and value those who continue to participate and post all the time.
This ensures we show that our focus is on those who are always contributing, always visiting, and always focused! This includes looking at those who post often, contribute to events like yakfinities, and social network with yak (ala Facebook). Do not fret though. If you are still here and still active we are developing NEW ways to reward you for your efforts. If you have any ideas please PM them to me and I will discuss them with the admin and yak staff. I believe I speak for all the admin when I say it is time for us to take Yakface to the next level and evolve so that we can better support our hard-working and dedicated community.
Thank you for your attention and patience with this issue.
