  9. What are they saying? The new one is a great improvement over the old one.
     
  10. I feel like I'm looking at a completely new pet when I look at that new Murfin. I was so use to how the old one looked for YEARS. Hopefully they'll update all their pets though to look better like this.
    But again I'm use to all there current looks, I'm sure most will look like brand new pets to me xD
     
  11. I SAID the maker of this topic Only POSTED 2, and i said there was 1 more which i said about underwater human costume. but since is flash we cant copy it. uploading would take more time so lol
     
  12. Just that it looks nothing like a murfin and it is ruined :S
     
  13. YES YES YES YES I have been wanting them to revamp the Murfin for FOREVER
    Ugh it is SO. CUTE. I need 23402843 >_<

    Now time for "quitting Marapets" topics to pop up..


    I don't think you can "ruin" a shitty-quality image

  14. That always happens when someone's favorite pet gets revamped and they don't like it. But half of the time when they pop up, those players stick around even though they say they're quitting. @ianian has told me that a few times over the years.

  15. Hah yeah. I mean I absolutely HATE the revamped Azul, which was my favorite pet, but I learned to ignore it

    I realize this Murfin...well, doesn't look at all like the old one, but I will never understand how users were happy with just a generic mouse x_X
     
  16. @Panda!Panda!

    Aha xD They were pretty crap graphics the old ones and I find the new murfin a million times better and the people who don't like it can just get the hell over it!

  17. New art should be in every Mara's users mind as of now, because the site is going to be undergoing a lot of revamps. Signs of good things to come. I guess once the knock out all these revamps, Ian can go focusing on new features/updating features, I guess? At least that's what I think. @JammybeeJammybee

  18. I wish!

    I would love to see some amazing features but most of all a new layout! @cpvrcpvr

  19. That one I'm really happy to hear about because let's face it, a new layout would do them well. So many sites are ahead of them in terms of good navigation, a good layout. A layout is one of the first things someone looks at it before they actually join up and play. The current layout is nice, for children-era, not so much for the teens that expect a good quality layout when they join up. I'm in the same boat as you.

  20. I honestly do think it'd be bad for them if they made a new layout. I agree that they NEED one, but if they did something as drastic as drop-down menus, I can see a LOT of people leaving. Unless they gave users the option of which layout to use, whiiich would be awesome

    Now all they need to do is hire new GAs v_v This art is tempting me to make Mara avatars again, since its sooo much easier to make good ones with nice-quality art
