I'm sure most of you know it was taken down due to pets being disowned that weren't theirs. After looking into this more I might've actually figured out how to do it, I'm unsure right now. (I can't actually test it....) Many people thought it was hacking, which was poor judgement, it's definitely a glitch within the coding itself. The reason I say this is simply because only pets were targeted, and some of the pets being disowned, the owners hadn't logged on for a while.
That being said one of the managers (higher than admin) has supposedly said that the pound may be closed indefinitely. I don't have access to screencapping this information as I no longer have adult forum access, which is most likely where this was posted. If it's indeed closed indefinitely, it's a real issue. Not just in the sense that players can no longer disown pets, but it just further confirms my beliefs that Ian will only be recycling code he has lying around and fixing server issues when they occur.
Anyways I just thought VPL should know, let the discussion commence.
