 Bearkat asked:
Can there be a restart level button for Wacky Workshop levels? It's really frustrating to have to back out of it completely just to restart a level when you know you made a wrong move/path.
I've been going back to each game, one by one, fixing any problems reported and improving the games and today was time for Wacky Workshop to be done. I've changed the buttons on this game now and added a Restart button.

Can we please move the restart button the 2048 game? I keep accidently clicking it!
This has happened to me before several times! I've removed the button completely and added an "Are you sure?" to the exit button.

 Faedwill asked:
Could you please implement an Ant Hill giftbox?
As probably around a quarter of all questions to the Editorial seem to be about new giftboxes I'll answer one of them..... at the moment there are no plans for new ones - I think we have more than enough right now. I have written down a few that were asked for the most here so I have a list - since the Seasonal Fairy rewards for their collection, there may be a few new ones in December if it fits around the Christmas themed news. Ant Hill, Tombola(s) and Venomous Victory are the ones I added to the "maybe" list.

 Em asked:
The image for "Pliers" on mara is actually a wrench, not pliers, is this something that can be fixed?
It's been wrong for 16 years now and no one has ever pointed that out... I can't just rename it because it'll mess up a lot of guides but whenever the tools get their artwork updated, I'll make sure the art is actually pliers!

 welshbubble asked:
Can we have the new games added to the high scores list please?
They all will have a trophy of some kind eventually but I don't release the prizes and trophies all at once. Sometimes it is because the artwork isn't ready but other times it is because we wait until the game has had enough plays/tests and enough extra security features are added to stop any possible cheating. No matter how many times we test stuff before release, there will always be those 1 in 1,000 or even 1 in 100,000 weird glitches that can happen and trophies should only go to those who earned them.

 PlasticDolly asked:
Can the new HTML5 games only be shown on the Games page and not on the Free Games (dailies) page? Like the old flash games used to be.
The design of the games page (and others that are basically just massive lists) will be changed in a few months. I'm waiting until a few more games and features are released before they get updated and organised properly.

 Ashtoreth asked:
Would there possibly be a feature added to MaraTalk that you can save specific gifs to show up when you first hit the gif button? I'd love instant access to Elmo Fire ;.;
If you save GIFs and upload them to Mara.Pics you can have your own GIF folder there which will make it easier to get to at MaraTalk and the Forums.

 pobelvean asked:
Would you consider promoting health, safety, and responsibility in the midst of the COVID pandemic here in Mara? Maybe Trojan could take a home vacation until it's a bit safer? ^_^
That's a cute idea but I *try* to keep real life stuff out of the "virtual world" of Marada. I'll say it here though - any players thinking of going outside, please stay home and play MaraPets instead!

 Porcelan asked:
Can quests pay more? If we buy items directly from other shops we lose more than we spend for quests
If you're not making a profit from a quest, you shouldn't do it. That is pretty much the whole point of a quest game.

 ATEEZ asked:
Can you label the stars awarded for completing the jigsaw puzzles so that we know which level of difficulty has already been completed?
I've changed the stars so that they show in order of difficulty, so if you were missing the Medium difficulty, the 2nd star will be missing. I also recently added Lowlyhood as a new puzzle.

 Porcelan asked:
I would love to see more games with prizes per level, and more game trophies. Any plans to add more?
We added about 8 new ones since you asked this question haha but yes, we have plans to add more but obviously 2020 we started with 46 less games when our Flash Games were removed so they're coming out faster this year than they would normally. I still plan to release around one a week, every week, until 2020 is over. Next year they won't be released as often though - we have other plans for 2021 :)

The Fish Minipets and Undying Minipets that can't have a colour change at Fasoro Falls, can you make it so they CAN'T be put through there please?
This was actually on my list for a while but it required editing a lot of places around the site where Minipets are used. This has been done now and Fasoro Falls only lists the Minipets that can actually use it.

Can we get the icons of the shopkeepers on the 'shops' page updated to their new artwork?
These pages will have a new design soon, once more of their artwork is updated which is why we stopped updating all of the icons.

Is the Hero Costume going to be revamped?
The Super Hero Costume is one of the costumes that was half revamped already with the Basil, Decadal, Murfin and Raulf completed but the Mordo, Newth, Sindi and Speiro will be updated and lots more pets will be able to wear it.

 Panda asked:
Will the Flayee solution be changed, seeing the Pot of Gold drops have changed ?
Yea - with the way the Pot of Gold works now the solution to this avatar isn't fair given the price and rarity of the Flayee item. I don't usually ever give out solutions to avatars but will do this time because obviously it has changed. Since the Flayee now comes from the Time Machine, the solution for this avatar is now to use the Time Machine whenever the Flayee is a possible prize to be won that week. You don't have to win a Flayee but you will gain the avatar using the Time Machine if the Flayee was a possible prize to be won.

 Avious asked:
When is a Marapets merchandise store coming to us??
Never say never, but I don't think I'd ever do this. If we were to have merchandise it would have to be done properly, with high quality little pet plushies that are special and something I would want to own. I don't like mass produced throwaway merchandise... like a plain white "one size fits noone" t shirt with MaraPets logo on it really isn't something I would ever want to exist. But one day I would love us to have a limited amount of special, high quality pet plushies that can be won in our events, earned in a special shop here or possibly as a free gift we send to those who reached say Level 100 of the progress goals. I would want them to all be really unique, with their own cute little box, unique tags, unique birth certificates. Something special that people would want to keep forever and not just be thrown away or added to the pile of other merchandise. It will happen one day but I doubt we'll ever have a store.. unless I accidently order 100,000 instead of 1,000 lol

Is there any way you can add a link "Back to Marapets" on the new games send score pages?

 s8n asked:
Venomous Victory Giftbox and a No-ads for Games Giftbox?
I answered earlier today about the ads and added a 'Preloader Ads Giftbox'. Adding it to your collection doesn't remove ads from the site but it does remove the ads that show while the newer games/features are loading. Basically any game or feature that is fullscreen will no longer show those ads.

 Guineagirl asked:
Why do you need to be higher than leave 15 to ask questions? The new player will have the most questions eneyways
Editorial is supposed to be suggestions to improve the game and give feedback and I feel that by the time you are Level 15 or higher, you have visited enough of the site to do this. Before it was questions like "how do I feed my pet?" or "Hello? is anyone there?"
2 months, 25 days & 22 hrs ago
Two questions about jigsaw puzzles. Is there a point to getting all four stars, and can we get some way to tell what difficulty we've gotten stars from?
Each puzzle has 4 stars and you earn 1 star for each difficulty. There is no way to tell which one other than by making note of it yourself.

 Meivabelle asked:
Can we have a GB that automatically updates prices in our shop once a day?
Giftboxes were created to allow people to use certain features twice as often. They became another way for players to pay once to unlock features that we would love to offer to everyone for free but are very server/cpu intensive and a GB helps limit and pay for these features. They are not (and never will be) something that *plays* the MaraPets game for you and pricing your shop is not something that is automated.

 Jazriel asked:
Can we get a giftbox for Venomous Victory please Ian?
This feature was never intended to have a giftbox. I made it really generous with the amount of transformations and photos that are earned each day and to double that would be too much. People do keep asking for it though because they do want to play more often so if we ever did have a GB for this game, I would need to create new photo items (that can only be won from this feature) to balance this slightly because the current game already is very, very generous with the number of photos that can be won daily and any GB would double this - which is far too much!

Can you add a link to hospital at Eleka Fountain because my pets went there and are sick.
Whenever you click on your pet while its sick it will link to the hospital.

Will there be more Jigsaw Puzzles? I have completed all 13 & every level of the ones so far I do hope there will be.
There will be! I'm happy to say that the new Eleka's Castle map has just now been added as a new puzzle.

 Cygnet asked:
Can Anagram Sam be hooked up to a dictionary so it accepts a wider variety of common real words?
The original Anagram Sam was for marapets items which is the only reason why it's like that. In the future we might meet one of his relatives Dictionary Kerry or Spell Michelle lol in a new version based on real, dictionary words.

 Guineagirl asked:
Why is there an ad for prize drop? There was none for One in a Million.
Almost every page of the site has ads, so One in a Million did but since the Prize Drop game has a "loading screen" that can take 5-35 seconds to load for players depending on the size of the game, the device its played on and internet speed... so while the game is downloading a slightly higher paying, higher quality branded or video ad is loaded.

Obviously no one likes ads and if I had the choice, I would not have them on MaraPets. It's really not nice for us to spend weeks on a game or feature to make it perfect then have an ugly, annoying advert for someone else's game show before you play ours. Wthout ads we would be 100% reliant on Account Upgrade purchases and I don't personally think that would be a good thing for us. MaraPets is a free to play game and the vast majority of people do not purchase AU and I personally like that they don't feel the *need* to and can win/earn it in the game too. So yeah, the reason WHY we have these ads is that they bring in a small amount of extra revenue that long term helps pay for all of this extra content and basically keep us going strong after almost 16 years now.

We've have however had a LOT of requests in the editorial for a Giftbox that removes these preloader ads on our new games and it is something that we will be implementing because it seems like the best solution. These ads only became extremely annoying when someone is an active MaraPets player who plays and uses them several times a day and these adverts are really only intended to make additional revenue from those who find us, browse, play a few games and leave. I hope this makes sense!

 Spells asked:
Would you make a setting for Marapets night mode? Darker backgrounds instead of white.
Honestly, I have no plans for anything like this. There are plenty of browser settings and extensions you can add to do it yourself. If you have Chrome browser go to Settings, Themes and then choose Dark.

 pinkgu asked:
Due to the current weather event and closure of certain shops. Can we have an alternate solution to Easter Egg Hunt 2020? I believe some of us player are still trying to finish it.
I know this question is old but it was still asked on the 8th May so I think the answer is still relevent. Easter was 12 April and everyone had until the end of June to complete it. Weather events are random and unpredictable and part of the game. The alternative solution will only ever be to wait for the weather to pass.

Can we get a thing like with selfies but for pets so you could change them?
We have this already with the Transformations collection but you just have to earn the changes from Drew quests. It'll never be as easy to change pets as it is changing selfies.

 Astralis asked:
Could you make it so we go straight to the Sewer Struggle battles rather than being directed to the battle arena?
I've edited it so that when you click on the 'Fight them in the Battle Arena to continue' link it will automatically start the battle for your default pet. It's not perfect though - it *may* have a few issues if a security code is asked for or if you are already in a battle but its certainly better than before.

 Shinigami asked:
Any chance the daily deals could reset at 00:00?
That wouldn't work because your deal needs to last a day. Otherwise people could use it at 1 minute before midnight and their deal has reset before they even get to the shop its for.

 s8n asked:
Can we have a gift box for no-ads on games?
It's a tricky one. The ads obviously bring in revenue to pay for these games and without ads, we'd be 100% reliant on AU buyers and I think Mara wouldn't be the same if it was totally reliant on those who pay to play. Any GB to stop the preloader/video ads while a game is loading could *maybe* help if the GB was paid for but most AU is earnt or traded on MaraPets.. and a lot of people adblock anyway. And a GB just for the ads while the new games are loading would have a lot of people expecting the whole of Marapets to be ad-free. And it would lose us revenue than pays for a lot of these benfits and has kept us open for so long.... I'll add it to the list as a possible GB for the game preloader/video ads.

Can you add the Photo Parlour and Web Cam to the Operations Portal page, please?
Mara is so huge that the original suggestions were first the obviously linked places and then others, like the portal, were linked by how often you could play them. I've taken away Word Search and Crossword from Portal and replaced it with Photos + Webcam.
