Today is the day that we will reach the amazing 300 Million Hits since we opened. As this is such a crazy amount, we have decided to have a crazy news update...

We have hidden 30 Avatars around the site. They will not be retiring today, except for the Naughty avatar, but that is one avatar for every 10 million hits we have received. Crazy!







To celebrate, this 300 Million Hits Book has been released. Around 3,000 will be released throughout the day at the Pot of Gold. Tomorrow it will be retired.


Finally, ALL Mutant pets have been completed and are now activated at the DNA lab.

A strange Ideus has moved to Minipet Island and is now selling Treasure Maps. Why is he strange? He doesn't take MP, BP or Dukka Coins for them. Instead he only asks for RP. To make restocks even more interesting, you now get restock points each time you restock an item. For rarity 1 you get 1 point, for rarity 2 you get 2 points and so on. Can you complete all of the map pieces?



The Minipet Island map has been updated.

To make restocks run faster and to keep the Treasure Maps fairer, security codes load for all items that restock.

What do you get if you complete the Volcano Treasure Maps? A set of 9 Burnt Items!


The Ideus and the Jessup are the first pets that can wear the Burnt Costume.

Today we have some very good news! Our new items network of Servers have finally been set up and are now running on the site. We have 31 servers (to be 32 by Saturday) running on the whole site. You should have already noticed the huge change in speed. There should not be any lag on the site at all, ever - even if there was 10,000 online! The items server network has so far cost $17,000 alone to get so we hope you appreciate it. Thank you to everyone who have upgraded their accounts and helped make this possible. We still need to pay back a lot of the money we loaned to make this possible, so your continuing support will be appreciated.

As the Item Servers have been added, restocks are now much better. They are on time and restock with a lot better variety. You should also notice trades, auctions and user shops all loading almost instantly. As space will never be a problem with the new set up, Galleries can now 5 times their size and Shops can hold 3 times their upgraded size!

Another Back Up server has been installed, which now means that every 15 minutes a backup of your account is created! This should help us in the very small chance that any data is ever lost.

We have some new Moderators on trial to become part of our team of staff. Remember that asking for staff will never get you the position!

We have doubled the amount of Image Servers the site uses. You should notice that images load almost instantly, especially the layout and we will have many backups if one of them ever goes down. When we reached 4,000 online before we had many problems with our images and this should not happen again now.

Four more Books are now restocking!


Can you find this Merry Christmas hidden avatar?

The Mutant Jessup has been completed. Not many mutant pets left to release now!


Just a reminder to those who are Avatar Collectors that one or two avatars will be released from the Advent Calendar this year which will retire. That means if you miss that specific day, you will not be able to get the avatar again. Here is one of them..


Four new Books are now restocking!


All Marasite Domains have been fixed and the new ones have been registered. This means that Marasite Upgrades are being given out again and there should not be any delays.

These two new Avatars may be obvious, but are they easy?

Marasites have been given a new look, new site, new features and a new server! They had lots of problems before and are finally without errors. It is easier to use now too. We have fixed all errors and activated html codes which were filtered before. Here are some of the features of Marasites:

Marasite Poll can now be added to you marasite for members to vote on.

Marasite Quiz similar to the club quiz, has now been added. You can create a quiz with items and load it on your marasite for members to guess.

Marasite Headers & Footers allow you to add html at the top and bottom of every page on your site.

Finally, Marasite News is another new feature which allows you to add news entries to show up on your marasite. Members can comment on your updates too!


The Marasite Upgrades have been changed.

Item Rarities have been changed. We have had many rarity changes since we opened and lots of items were either too high or too low, unretired when they should be and it had caused a lot of confusion. Yesterday, all 3001 items we have were edited. Items between rarity 1 and 20 restock in the main shops. Popular shops which are needed more often, such as Stars for example, now have a 25 sec delay between security coded restocks, as they now restock a lot more items. If you never restocked before you should have more chance at getting things now as it is a lot fairer. Rarity 21 to 30 are items that do not restock and were either gained from somewhere else or from Account Upgrades. Items that are extremely rare and very limited are rarity 31 to 50. Items that are retired are no longer avaliable anywhere on the site (but there may come a time where a few more are released, but this is rare).

We have added a Mozilla Firefox banner in some areas of the site. All of our staff use Mozilla Firefox as our main browser, because it is much faster and safer than Internet Explorer. You may want to consider trying it one day if you are a restocker.

Lots of new Pet Colours have been released today. Here they are...

The Wizard Osafo


The Seasonal Fasoro


The Starry Viotto


The Gold Viotto


The Silver Viotto


The Mutant Bolimo


The Bronze Viotto


The Black Viotto


The Mutant Fasoro


The Mutant Feliz

The 27th Marapet has now been released. The Viotto is limited edition and from Biala. (Pet 28 will not be limited edition.)



A new Mission has been released in Biala. Introducing Blitzen's Grotto. Biala being the home of Santa, Christmas is really important. Blitzen is one of Santa's reindeers and he needs your help to get enough items in time for Christmas. Viottos work for Santa too, and therefore the pet species is limited. If you can help Blitzen and complete his 30 missions he will reward you greatly. Blitzen will give you a mission every day, as long as you haven't already completed an Ublish mission in the same day. You will need to collect a certain item for him within a certain time limit. At level 1, all items asked for will be rarity 1 - upto level 30 where all items asked for will be rarity 30. If you fail to bring any of them, you will have to start again.



This is now a new Missions Forum.

Blitzen's Grotto has been added to Biala's map.

The Viotto default avatar has also been completed.


More news later...

MaraUploads have been given a new look, new site, new features and a new server! We offer ALL members 1MB upload space for free at marauploads.com. We had problems with it before, as this is an amazingly high amount of space when you see how many use it. We have saved up and bought a bigger, faster server and move the site onto a new domain name. As this costs almost $250 a month to run, we have also added very cheap Uploads Upgrades from only $1.99 to help pay for some ofo this cost. We hope you all make good use of the new uploads and also remember that signature images will soon only work with marauploads!

Journal Upgrades have been improved and released on the new Marajournals.com website. You should notice that there is a lot of extra features and advantages to them. Please note that it may take a few days for the upgrades to be sent. Those who upgraded before will be automatically sent the extras.

This is just a very quick update to explain our 24 hour downtime.

Our new servers that were supposidly being set up this Friday were set up last night, while I was sleeping.

As the new servers are taking longer than we had hoped, all work is being done on the servers while the site is online on a backup server.

We apoligise for the downtime - it was unexpected and took longer than we had hoped.

The new servers will be installed over the next few days and then the site will move onto the within an hour later in the week.

For now, we thank you for your patience while the site runs slightly slower on this server.

After months of delay, Homes have been released. You can now buy upto 5 Homes each from a choice of 8 Houses, add furniture and appliances, paint the walls or change the flooring and browse through other people's houses. As they have only just been released, not all of the special features have been released yet. You should soon be able to sell your house (fully decorated and furnished) in a way similar to trades, create and manage gardens and many other features. It will take a few more days for the furniture and appliances to actually work in the houses, such as beds for your pet to sleep in and cookers to feed your minipets.



20 new Cleaning Products are restocking. When homes get untidy, pets get sick..


20 new Electrial Appliances are restocking - get them for your home now!

We are pleased to announce the beta release of our new Marapets Email Service. It is 100% free to all members who have email-verified their account with us and are 13 and over. You should have notice the "0 New Emails" added to the top of each page which will let you know when you receive new emails. You will also receive an event, similar to the way Maramail works. You can also send emails from your maramail.com email account, however this is very basic right now as most of its features have not been completed yet. It may take up to two weeks for it to be finished, as certain parts, such as forward and reply have not been completed yet. You should soon also be able to send attachments. Sending emails is also rewarding, as your referral link will appear on them all, which should increase the amount of members you refer to the site! There will also be some new, unique Random Events soon added that will only appear on the maramail.com website. Please remember that it is a FREE service and run on donations, so we would like to thank all those who have supported us - and continue to do so - for helping us to make this possible! As you may know already, for as long as we have players donating, more and more features can be added and remain free for everyone.


We now have new, more secure and faster Security Codes when you restock.

A new Award has been released for the Most Helpful Member. This award is randomly given to players who we believe have been very helpful to Marapets. This award is only chosen by Laimay and I, and as other staff are players of the site too, they are able to win the award too. If we decided someone has been a helpful member, our appreciation will be shown on the news and with this medal being added to their profile. How can you be the most helpful member? Easy - by regularly helping other players of the site when they need it, by following all of the rules and being friendly and polite. Asking for this award will never get you it!


Five new Books are now restocking...


There are two new Hidden Avatars for you to collect.

IMPORTANT UPDATE

The site has now moved back to the old server set up we had a few weeks ago, which is slower and can hold less people, temporarily until we complete our server upgrades. This is to stop the site constantly going down everytime any work needs to be done. The upgrades are to make sure that as the site grows, we do not experience any lag. It is also to prepare the site for MaraTalk. Thank you for your patience.
