Recently Haze, Tama-Zone's founder, resigned his Admin position because he has not been able to be online at Tama-Zone as often as he thinks is necessary for an Admin. When announcing his decision to leave to the other Admin staff, we compared our recent experiences and were surprised to find that all of us admit to no longer being able to enjoy Tamagotchis as much as we used to. The main reason for this is that we've become too busy administering the Tama-Zone board. The Admin staff have therefore decided to make a radical change to Tama-Zone. Effective January 1, 2008, most non-Tamagotchi areas are closed.

Areas & forums to be closed down have been shuffled down the page, and made read-only. The Competitions forum and Tamagotchi Stories forum have been left open so that members can wrap-up their current competitions & stories, but no new topics will be allowed. For areas of interest that we have closed down, we recommend members join TamaTalk.

During the rearrangement of the forums, we may have broken some links. If you find a broken link, please send me a PM and provide the URL to the post which has the broken link in it. (Hint: click the word Posted: at the top of any post to get its URL.)

Our overall goal is to make Tama-Zone a meeting spot for dedicated fans; where mature people can have fun. We hope you do not feel we are taking all the fun out of Tama-Zone.

Thank you for your understanding.



EDIT: We have moved the Tamagtchi Art and Signatures/Avatars forums over to the Tamagotchi Other category for the time-being. They are still read-only - but we may look at changing this in the future if we come up with a suitable alternative. We have also re-opened Tamagotchi Stories and Competitions so that members can post in existing topics, but are not able to create new topics.

I understand completely because there was a lot to watch over and keep clear of spam and stuff. But I am upset I can't finish my story.

EDIT: It just opened up to posting again. Why was it closed earlier?

You can - The story section is remaining open for members to wrap up their Stories (but not for New Topics).

tama~chu fanatic - The art section is closed. Discussion is not a place for art.

What you see now is Tama-Zone. Some areas have been closed to keep the site focussed on what it is for - Tamagotchi help, support and the love of Tamagotchi. As Binary says in the opening post, for members wanting to participate in the kind of areas that are now closed we recommend joining TamaTalk.

I completely understand. Even though you will lose a lot of members, I'm sure that it was the right choice. I'm still staying here. :D

Jeez... a lot of those topics were the ones I enjoyed most...
I know it's difficult with spam and all... but why not get more admins and mods and such? Or assign certain mods to certain forums. I just don't understand... :( I don't want to go to Tamatalk because I like it a lot here.

I think your doing the right thing, after all Tama-Zone is Tama-Zone. Even thought quite a few members will probably leave i think it is a good up grade.

:( Gosh, this stinks. The fun was the main reason I joined in the first place. I guess with the loss of all things fun, I won't be on here much unless I need charts or stuff...... Oh, well. And I agree with -TP-. This will probably result in loss of member participation....... I also agree with SebiretchiFaNx0x03; if you have a bigger staff and they each do their part, Tama-Zone could still be fun. *Sigh*
