A disclaimer: Skye: Endless Realm is not affiliated with GCrest, TinierMe, CyberAgent, or any related entities.

I know you all spent so much time and care on making the perfect rooms, Dream Selfies, and outfit collections. TinierMe was a place to live out a creative and giving extension of our lives online. I want at least some of your efforts to remain online where people can admire them.


:reading:   [ 2. "Why Is TinierMe Closing?" - Theories From Users ]   :reading:


[ EDIT ] Nov. 15th, '12 @ 10:03 PM - An AMAZING post on TinierMe about the closing and all the events behind it, by the famous user, Sleep. Please read this for the best and most up-to-date real information!

Here are some other things I've heard from users so far... Please correct me if I'm wrong!

  1. TinierMe has "Gachas" - random virtual vending machines (you get clothing, accessories, backgrounds...)
  2. New Gachas are released every month/week or so!
  3. Gachas are super popular to play and take cash only, not in-game gold
  4. If you win a whole set's worth of items, you get a VERY exclusive item
  5. This super bonus reward motivated many people to diligently play Gachas
  6. In Japan alone, minors individually spent over $5,000 (in ¥) on TinierMe digital purchases!
  7. ^ This wasn't parentally-approved...
  8. Asian-parent-mode activated (I know what it's like - my Mama & Baba, bless their hearts = super Azns)
  9. Official complaints were filed!
  10. Japanese TinierMe had to do something...
  11. So they took away the prime incentive of playing Gachas -- the ultimate rewards...
  12. People stopped playing the Gachas as much as before
  13. Profits decreased noticeably
  14. The American version of TinierMe suffered as well...
  15. -- So GCREST America (who runs TinierMe's servers in America) raised item prices by 300%!
  16. Players boycotted paying such high prices
  17. More profits lost... GCREST found it difficult to keep up operational costs
  18. Then... the sudden announcement of "TinierMe is closing on Dec. 9th, 2012"

[ Please feel free to contribute more to this story! ]


:reading:   [ 2b. "How Can I Save My TinierMe Account/Items?" - FAQ ]   :reading:


Q: "Can't I migrate my items and account onto the Japanese TinierMe site?"

A: This is a good idea - but unfortunately, we can't... The TinierMe database in Japan is on different servers and we can't move our accounts (which are located on American servers) onto theirs.


Q: "When will TinierMe be back up or open again, if ever?"

A: Sadly, I believe GCREST is closing TinierMe indefinitely without concrete plans to open it again... GCREST customer support says: "Although there may be cases when personal information is kept and used to investigate incidents, all personal information will be permanently deleted on the Cancellation Date." -- This leads me to believe that all digital files (clothing, backgrounds, room accessories, etc.) will be deleted for good, too.


Q: "Will TinierMe Trading still be available?"

A: I've been talking with our dear Aikka of TinierMe Trading! Here's what dear Cruithne of TinierMe Trading has to say about what's going to happen:

"As you know, I have a lot of ads on TMT to pay its server cost. For the past few months, google decides to change its way of paying the ads, which in short, reduces the revenue by a LOT. To be honest, the revenue is nearly not covering the server cost anymore, and I don't have that much pocket money to pay it either ^^;.

"So Here's the idea, I'll keep TMT alive at least until end of December. You can still use "comment" feature to keep in touch with TM friends, or whatever you like to use it. I'll see how many traffic TMT gets after TM closes, and then decide whether to move TMT to cheaper hosting or to close it. I hope this solution pleases everyone. Please enjoy our last moment with TM and TMT, it's been nice to meet you all ♥"


:typerhappy:   [ 3. "What Are Game Sites Like TinierMe?" ]   :typerhappy:


Here are some online game sites similar to TinierMe! Avatar-based social game sites like TM and Gaia Online are called "online multiplayer worlds."

Please feel free to suggest more and I'll feature them here! Thank you for your time.

Skye: Endless Realm

Wed Oct 3, 2012, 8:18 PM


Inspired by your gaming feats*, I'm making a free virtual world social network...
That will be forever fun, free, and doing good while you play -
with recipients reporting your good deeds back to you.
Y'all heroes and heroines deserve to be recognized already!

Want to have your critiques heard and help make our game?

We need artists, coders, writers, and musicians!




So many artists and visitors on here are gamers! :huggle: Or game
illustrators, animators, riggers, skinners, etc... You've impacted my life.

(I've failed at gaming since it went 3-D years ago and have always
been in awe of y'all's feats. I die in both the most banal and
impossible ways in Halo; I fell through a random hole out of the
Cairo Station's belly in the very beginning of Halo 2 after half an
hour of not being able to find the action. /_____\)

*My gaming sisters and I've seen y'all just pour hours into helping
fellow gamers and fans -
- by editing enormous wikis;
- filming walkthroughs, glitches, and secrets;
- manipulating machinima;
- tweaking and creating a plethora of mods;
- optimizing settings...

Herculean efforts, indeed!!

You've inspired my life. My heroes and heroines, I've started
the world's first humanitarian game studio because of your
dedication. Our first game - Skye: Endless Realm is a virtual
world social network that's forever free, fun, and doing good
from the beginning - and born because of you all...!

Please hop on over here to find out how we're going to do good...

:w00t!: Would y'all like to follow our (sometimes hapless,
always entertaining) development of our site until
it's release in the future? We'll amuse you on Facebook and Tumblr!
You can make requests for us to eat weird things, or do
embarrassing athletic "feats." We'll film it on our team's Youtube...

:w00t!: We're starting a forum very soon
where y'all can critique our transparent development (I'm sitting
here with our coders working on installing phpBB for a forum tonight!)

:w00t!: Would you kindly (no Bioshock pun intended) "Like" or "Follow" us to
join the conversation? You'll be the first to know when our beta
goes live and get a chance to be an elite moderator in
Skye: Endless Realm!


(LOOOOL @ the pic below!! :D Please ignore the position shenanigans~)







^ ...  And other prizes as well!! Like 3DS games, DSi games,
manga, anime DVD collections, etc...

MANY THANKS!! - Melissa* (:iconmuddymelly:,) George*, and Sagar** -
the Heart Level Up team!

*Call me "Derp" :D (a most fitting nickname)
**Call him "Guruswamy" :D (to make him grimace)
***Call him "Sagu" :D (to make him turn red!)

You can talk to us on our team's Facebook Page!


  • Watching: ALL YOU AMAZING DEVIANTS & PEEPS <33333
*I will give myself until the end of February '12 to finish ALL the artwork commissioned -
in chronological order or by urgency! I'm so sorry for my idiocy. There is NO excuse
for me. I've severely let everyone down and will not do so again. Everyone who's said
"hello" - HI!!! Major hugs for your care! I WILL write you back after I finish some pieces.
Thank you so for being there! - ((Jan. 26, 2012))

:w00t: My Design Work: Exhibition, Entertainment, Industrial*, Branding :w00t:

Photobucket

I'd be so grateful if you checked it out, dear ones!
:glomp:
*Industrial design:  To create and execute design solutions towards problems of form,
usability, physical ergonomics, marketing, brand development and sales.

... Many apologies... Heavy updating of this site is why I haven't gotten back to anyone's DA Notes
or commissions for a few days (at time of writing, it's Oct. 12, midnight.) :(


:w00t: Dear ones... :w00t:


Dear all,

[Oct. 25 - Everyone who I promised prints to - I will make the prints when I finish Andrew's commission (in the list below - 90% done!! Thank you for so patiently waiting...)

COMMISSIONS STATUS: As of right now, temporarily closed due to higher level of real life work (everyone who has written me up to this point will get an answer! I'll update again when commissions are open - it may be a while though.)

A new commissions list (below giant blurb of text...!) Everyone, if I've missed anyone, please do holler at me and I'll remedy that right away. :]

OH! And everyone who has e-mailed me in the past about commissions! I promise I'll write back to each and every one of you.

= = = = =

Everyone, thank you for being you. Thank you for reading this, and coming here to see my work... Your happiness means so much to me and inspires me so.

A LOT more art pieces will be uploaded in rapid succession! I am almost done addressing nearly everyone's commissions. It will be Anime Weekend Atlanta today (it's almost 4 AM now in EST) - let's see what I can do! I will update every single person who commissioned something from me - including Brendan, if you are reading this! I'm so sorry I haven't drawn Rini yet!!

Everyone who will see me at AWA - I will have a few cardboard tubes handy for putting posters in (hopefully - am currently running around trying to find free tubes because I'm a cheap girl.) Please feel free to use X number of tubes to boop me in revenge for taking an eternity to take care of your artwork...!!

AH!

And a note to everyone who has written me requesting a commission... I have made my drawing style a LOT faster but facilitative of even more details and quality - I will certainly write back soon (please give me until October 14th to take care of post-con orders and remaining commissions.)

As for people who have had to wait forever - please feel free to have me draw free artwork for you until you feel satisfied. I promise I will be much, much faster this time around. Please also feel free to help yourself to whatever prints / etc. you'd like from my table at AWA!

(3) AWA Report


Anime Weekend Atlanta 2010 (the 15th AWA) report coming soon in this space~! To all you kind DeviantArtists and visitors to my and Mouichi's table, thank you all very very very very MUCH~!!! We are so grateful!! Everyone had such blush-ful compliments and were so supporting... I was so glad to see:

:iconmouichi:, :iconlc3:, :iconfairytwister:. :iconbenny-lee:, :iconscarletcomet:, :iconmaggiemary14:, :iconiswallowedastar:, and SO MANY OTHER PEEPS (to whom I am very sorry for no links - and who I will link here soon as I finish some homeworks, arts, and studying @^@)

Bad news: (almost) theft --

My friends were almost stolen from by four tall men dressed in white graphic/fancy hoodies and a much shorter man/child walking around AWA approaching unguarded goods to take them, including photography equipment left to the side while photographers held shoots. The tall men would stand between the equipment and rightful owners (a human fence) and the smaller man would run behind them and try to make off with the goods.

Thank you to a very perceptive person who noticed this maneuver and watched over my friends' things after confronting the men!! That was very brave and kind of you!!

Please do be careful with your equipment at AWA and if anyone does need a place to put their things I usually have a bit of room underneath my Artist Alley table that you may borrow if available!

FOUND: digital camera --

A tall man (very sweet) dressed as fifteen-year-old Lambo came and chatted for a while and then forgot his camera at my table!! @^@;; We waited and couldn't find the man and so I took the camera home... Please do contact me if you see this and I'll mail your camera back!! My e-mail's at the bottom of this Journal!

*Please, please badger me through any means you like if you feel I'm being too slow! You can reach me on Skype or Facebook at muddymelly, note me through DeviantART, e-mail through muddymelly [at] yahoo [dot] com. :huggle: Thank you all for your undeserved patience... God bless you all~~ :happycry:

08.12.2010 - "Art Battle!!"
:iconifeelfluffyplz::iconifeelfluffyplz::iconifeelfluffyplz::iconifeelfluffyplz::iconifeelfluffyplz::iconifeelfluffyplz::iconifeelfluffyplz:
I'm sorry!! It's not really an art battle, but most tell me they've not heard of original character tournaments (or "OCTs") before. It's where you create an original character (or "OC") and face someone else's OC in a preset world complete with background (fights are set up by judges - you choreograph them,) and the defeated from all rounds remain involved as "spectators" - in most cases, I believe they're not allowed to be as involved in every round as, say, the "Gaya Alliance" (or "Extras Alliance") in Kaitani Shinobu's manga Liar Game (chairs game arc,) but their existence is prominent~ Oh! And how you fight is like thus --

YOU are paired up to fight OPPONENT and given a deadline by which to complete your rounds. Your rounds can be in manga/graphic novel format, Flash movies, written, etc. depending on tournament rules. Let's say the OCT is manga-based. YOU and OPPONENT will each publish manga depicting YOUR and OPPONENT's OCs winning, respectively! Each of you makes your own OC triumph over the other. The judges then look at both manga installments and decide which they like better, declaring that one and its main OC the winner. Repeat through each round.
:iconrakusaru: and I have entered an OCT located here - "Welcome to Nevermore" Tournament!

The most sweet :iconrakusaru: is an INCREDIBLE~~~ writer and friend!! I'll put up the tournament entries here if anyone's interested:
