I think I would really enjoy an old school hexing contest! :o
But while I wouldn't mind something small for November Anniversary festivities, hopefully it doesn't take away from the usual hussle and bussle of the holidays! The moment Halloween's over I'm usually right into the Christmas spirit so I don't know if I'll get too into the 20 yr anniversary. :) I'm hoping to start up some Christmas and Holiday threads in November so as long as it doesn't put a hold on that I'm not too worried. :)
^ That's up to the community, I'd say. We mods can host stuff and spotlight what members are hosting etc etc, but whether or not a lot of stuff happens and gets lots of people joining in is all up to you guys. If it's not for you, just skip it. You can organize and/or join whatever you want, whenever you want. If you want to get started on christmas in the middle of nostalgia month, go ahead! Worst case scenario, people will wait a few weeks before participating.
I'm not sure if this has been mentioned but we could do gameplay competitions? Like the old ones I remember from PCG - don't know if those are common anymore. The kind of thing where everyone is sent a few petz without much choice as to what they receive, and they have to raise the two petz from the beginning - with all sorts of prompts for each day that have to be filled out on a site or on a forum thread :)
I think that could also get people to start playing the game more.
i'm game for an old school hexing contest, how far old school do you mean? Having one that spans back to before petz workshop was created so everything has to be done in lnz would be lots and lots of fun, i'm not sure how willing people would be to participate though.
SOOO I'm super late obvs but NOVEMBER IS (almost) UPON US and I just wanted to agree that the breeding contest and hexing contest sound really fun. OH and the gameplay contest I've always wanted to participate in a legit one since I read... Arie's gameplay contest entry/story. Georgie@FarmBarn IDK if you'd be into this but just gonna throw it out there, if you'd be interested you could totally make some old-school hexies.. like the hex-paints that were around back when people were first dabbling in mad-scientist petz alterations.. If you do hold any raffles I'm sure whatever you offer will be stunning <3 And those questions sound sweet c:
Hahaha.. I'm not entirely sure either! You'd probably have to ask some of the veteran PC'ers to get specifics on what was in as far as trends and what-not.. AFAIK there was minimal addball work, lots of really fuzzied-up danes with attempts at pooftails.. maybe some simpler untextured paintballs in some bright colors? I don't even know if that was really a thing but some bright lisa frank type monstrosity would be something to see.
We should probably make use of this blindingly neon texture on every pet
(tho if I'm being honest I still love this file)

gumdrop: I've gone ages w/out accepting donations before...it's kinda fun, like when u had paper paychecks and you'd find one you forgot to deposit and suddenly you have a lot more money than you realized. (Just me?)

Thor: I just realized that I have never accepted a donation before....... I'm.... I'm dumb.

turmoil: yep ;; literally tried everything to get it to launch it just refuses
Jul 31, 2020 21:40:34 GMT
Laura: You're probably tried already and I'm suggesting the obvious, but have you tried launching it with different compatability settings and/or as admin?

turmoil: I used to play it on disc, but the same thing happened with the disc on my old laptop. So I got this version off the web and it's still messing up
Jul 30, 2020 18:41:18 GMT
turmoil: Arie it doesn't ! Maybe im doing something wrong?
Jul 30, 2020 18:40:58 GMT
Arie: That's weird! Does it show up in task manager after double clicking?
Jul 30, 2020 18:34:58 GMT
turmoil: I'm dying to play petz 5 again, but i can not for the life of me get it to run. Double clicking the icon does nothing? Is there anywhere specific i could get help for this?

Laura: Pigz are pink, bunnies are white, I stayed up too late playing petz last night (but it was worth it )

Arie: Hey everyone! Not sure if this is happening to anyone else, but I have been getting ads on here that auto-redirect you to shady sites. If this happens to you, please report the ad to ProBoards!

cheshire: Hey, everyone. Hope you don't mind me lurking in the corner. Thought I'd drop back in for a bit, since I finally don't have anything important to do.
