Introducing the new and improved... MaraTalk

The news has been pretty quiet for the last couple of weeks as we were busy working on the new and improved MaraTalk. There was a rare moment while the June event was running that we had some spare time to focus on the new MaraTalk. Expecting to get a huge project like this done in a couple of weeks was a stretch and our unplanned, emergency maintenance July 1st delayed us even further.

The maintenance was a huge success (completed 8 hours earlier than estimated) and enough of MaraTalk is complete for us to officially release it now, allowing us to return to normal news and release the event winners later this week.
Please remember that this is an ongoing project that will have lots of updates, changes and improvements over the coming weeks, months and years and that this news is just to keep you updated with the progress so far. Any glitches or errors you find, please report in the Help Forum and suggestions/ideas to the Editorial.

MaraTalk is our instant messenger and was first started in 2005. We were ahead of our times in many ways, giving players many different ways to communicate. Those who like to chat in a slower, simpler way have MaraMail, Forums, Club Chat and those who prefer fast, shorter instant chat have had MaraTalk. The new MaraTalk is an upgrade to the way that these chats happen - they are not a replacement of the old way! This is an ongoing project and we have many, many exciting changes and additions to come but now is the time to announce some of the changes made so far...


The new MaraTalk has many new features but the main improvement is that Group Chat works again (it was closed for several years) and it is all 100% mobile friendly, fast, light on data and works on all devices. As MaraTalk really is only useful for those who like 'instant chat' we have made it faster, easier to switch between MaraTalk, Adult Chat, Group Chats, Private one to one chat and your Club Chat. They all use the same system and you receive real time alerts, sounds and notifications while you chat. You can open this full screen or in a new window - as its fully responsive, you can resize the window to the size and shape that works best for you.

New Features
• New Addow and Bolimo themed Emojis and the full emoji dictionary (with every single skin tone)
GIFs can be added to chat in one click, showing the current GIFs trending worldwide
• You can easily search to internet to find the GIF you are looking for
• The browser tab/window will flash New Message Alerts or make a sound when you receive a new message. You can control this setting for each chat
• A new organised Inbox keeps track of your conversations. You can hide these from your inbox and they will still show in your Talk History
• You can see who is currently online and inside each chat. Any messages you post will have 2 ticks and when these both turn yellow your message has been Seen. In a chat with more than one person, you can click this to see who saw your message and when!
• Each chat is much more "instant" showing you who is currently Typing a message and the time since a message was posted updates in real time
• You can create different Group Chat and add any players (who allow you to contact them via MaraTalk) to join your own private chat room
• You can @ Tag players with any of their usernames in each chat. Doing so in a Group Chat automatically adds them to the group
Youtube video links (and a few other major video hosting sites) can now be shared in the new MaraTalk. The issue before was the unmoderated comments sections but videos you share now are processed here and you can watch the video direct from MaraTalk. You can even drag the video around the screen to the position you want it to be while you chat!
• BBCodes still work but you can also now easily share links. MaraPets approved safe links will automatically become links. All others can be clicked but this can take a few seconds to process, while it creates a screenshot preview of the site before you visit
Mara.Pics is linked with each chat. More information about this is written below...

Our free image upload service Mara.Pics is also linked with each chat. Simply press the Mara.Pics icon (the paperclip) and you'll be able to browse each of your folders and images. Simply press 'Share' and it will be added to any conversation. The upload icon also redirects you to Mara.Pics, automatically logging you in, to allow you to upload images with ease.

We have also integrated the site Alerts into the new MaraTalk system. This new system is not a replacement, its in addition to the current Alerts system. The new system means you will not miss any site alerts while you are chatting. All alerts are grouped together by type and each can be viewed in order like a MaraTalk conversation. The benefit of this is that you can Mute Specific Alerts - this is especially useful for those with lots of pets being inundated with Fairy Rewards!!

There are also new alerts that appear inside of MaraTalk conversations. Club Chat will tell you when a new player joins the club, leaves the club and close to 500 more messages in the club. MaraTalk will tell everyone when a Random Event prize is won inside that chat and when a player is about to hit another 1,000 message count goal.


And finally, the way that Feeds work has been improved. As Feeds are designed to be instant like MaraTalk, they have been integrated into this new system and follow a similar design. Feeds will update automatically in real time whenever you have this feature opened. It can be opened in full screen, a new tab or resized to suit your needs. There will be lots of new features and improvements coming to feeds in the future too!

The Cup Shuffle game in Vortex Park has been relaunched as the Swindler

The Lazy Fairy is very deceitful and has earned the notorious name of the Swindler. She will hide a random prize under one of her bins and then shuffle it. Follow the prize as she shuffles and each time you guess correctly, you will move to the next level. Guess incorrectly and you will lose the game.

Keep guessing correctly until she gets bored and she will let you keep the prize. But remember, she is very deceitful... you may find that she cheats and you walk away with nothing...
You can still play for FREE once every hour but the game now requires both luck and skill. There are four types of game you could play, each with a different coloured bin:
The Orange Bin will select a prize from the Swindler's Prize List.
The Green Bin will select any random, non-retired item currently on MaraPets - including a Capsule Machine Token!
The Red Bin will have an MP bag prize - you will find out how much is inside if you win.

With Queen Eleka's evil plan now public, King Baspinar is taking no chances. He has Marada's best scientists secretly preparing for war in this old abandoned soda factory. Our third level based Game has been released.

Wacky Workshop has been added to Enpiah and has 60 levels for you to complete. Connect the pipes of this workshop to fill the bottle with his secret brew. Do this in the fewest moves to earn extra stars. You must earn three stars to complete a level.


Wacky Workshop (just like Pearl Hurl and Pumpkin Patch) has 60 Level Reward Prizes. These are one time prize rewards you will win as a bonus prize for each level. You only receive these once, as you can only complete each level once. You can play Wacky Workshop up to 4 times per day for FREE. Earn 1MP per 3 points. Earn up to the maximum of MP2,000MP each play - if you complete a level with MP for its Level reward, you will receive the bonus MP too!

There are 15 levels that you will earn this reward, they stack and will be saved to your account to use at Ublish's Lair whenever you need to.
Whenever you start a Ublish's Lair mission, you can use one of these to pass the level without bringing the items that Ublish has asked for.

Introducing our new image upload service... Mara.Pics

Back in 2004 when MaraPets first launched, players needed a way to upload the images they use for their profiles, signatures, clubs, MaraSites, etc so MaraUploads was launched. Even though it was very basic and only gave each player 1MB of space, providing that to thousands of people for FREE was both expensive and a lot of hassle. In November 2009 we finally discontinued MaraUploads - there were much better FREE options on the internet and it simply did not provide us with good value for money.

Fast forward to today (ten and a half years later!!) and Mara.Pics has opened today for beta testing!

We believe once again that MaraPets players needed a quick and easy service to upload their images for FREE and will explain how and why in this news post. This service is provided FREE of charge to all Level 18 or higher players.

As your level increases, so does the amount of features and space you can use. Players can currently receive as much as 1GB (1,000MB) of FREE space, with lots of plans to increase and improve the service in the future.

You can simply visit https://mara.pics/ domain for now to access the service. It will automatically log you in if you are logged in MaraPets.

We have worked hard to make sure that Mara.Pics is very quick and easy to use and will explain some of its features below:


There are several ways to upload an image - we only accept PNG, JPG and GIF images. You can press the Browse button to upload multiple photos from your computer, tablet or mobile device. You can also select files from your computer and simply Drag & Drop them into the grey area that says 'Drop your photos here'. Level 30 and higher can take and upload photos directly from their mobile, tablet or laptop's camera - or webcam if they have one.

If you are working on graphics from many programs, like Photoshop, GIMP, etc you can copy any image direct from this program and simply Paste It (Ctrl + V) into the Mara.Pics upload page and it will automatically upload what you have copied!


Once uploaded, you can view your Photos in order of most recently uploaded or use the Organise section to move, rename and organise your photos into different folders. We even made each photo preview look like the Photo items on Marapets!

Even for those who do not have any images to upload or feel they have no use for this service, we've added one very useful feature! If you have an error or glitch around MaraPets that you want to report to us at the Help Forums, you can now very easily upload a Screenshot! Simply press the 'Prt Sc' button on your keyboard (or the screenshot buttons on your mobile/tablet device) and then when you get to the Mara.Pics upload page you can Paste It to automatically upload it!


Upload just one image at a time and it will automatically give you the option to Crop & Resize. We have also made it very easy for you to use any image that you upload - with quick copy and share buttons for MaraPets and social media!



Using the new Mara.Page Builder? The images you have uploaded to Mara.Pics will automatically be loaded into the page builder allowing you to simply drag and drop images into your Mara.Page directly from Mara.Pics!



16th May 2020
1 month, 27 days & 4 hrs ago
A new Mad Scientist Account Upgrade Set has been released, with 7 new Mad Scientist themed items, a retired Mad Scientist Costume and either 5 or 6 random pieces of a new Treasure Map. This set is on sale until July 20th. There is 1 in 3 chance you will receive 6 random pieces instead of 5 - no set you purchase will have duplicate pieces. This set will be on sale for over two months because the Venomous Victory Treasure Map is for access to a new feature that will not be released until the end of this month or early next month.

Our new and improved Marasites have been relaunched as Mara.Pages

Marasites are one of our oldest features, allowing every Level 18 or higher player to create their own website for FREE


We've made several updates to make this easier for all players who would like to make a page of their own.

Your Mara.Page has a new shorter link using your username(s) such as https://mara.page/Ian

You can use our new Page Builder to create your own website without having to know any HTML coding! Create a new page and then use the Page Builder to drag and drop your own grid. Once you have the grid how you want everything to be positioned, you can drag and drop links, images, buttons or your own HTML Code. We only recommend you using the page builder for new pages.

When our new Mara.Pics image upload service is launched later this year, you will be able to upload photos easily at Mara.Pics and then they'll show at the Page Builder, allowing you to click and drag these into it!


If you just want to make a simple page, you can use our new Default Editor. It works similar to how you would send an email or use a program like Microsoft Word, allowing you to format and position the basic features you need to make your page. You do not need to know any coding to work this!


For those who do know how to use CSS/HTML, you can use the brand new HTML Editor for Mara.Pages! It works just like a proper HTML Editing program - it'll automatically colour and format your script for you, help predict and hint with the code you are writing and automatically check for any errors. If you make a mistake, it'll give you hints!

BREAKING NEWS
King Baspinar is becoming increasingly paranoid and has hired the Fortune Teller from Slater Park to predict his future. The outlook doesn't look great for him - she can see that there are several plots to overthrow him! Did you know you could visit the Fortune Teller for FREE every 3 hours? The mysterious Anastasia is eager to pass on her words on wisdom to you.

Anastasia will predict your future. She will share with you her wise words or her future predictions and she is usually right! She will give you a time and date and a clue about what will happen. What you do with her prediction is down to you.

Visit the site when she gives you an exact time and you will (most likely) receive a Random Event. Depending on her hints, these could be good or bad but they are usually better than normal Random Events you will receive as you play. She can also predict when you are next going to win from certain feature or game. These predictions can be between tomorrow and two weeks into the future - you will need to remember when and where and visit those days to win! These are a great way to pass those random levels for Goals - she will predict when you will win a Tombola game or climb higher than normal in the Jackpot Pyramid for example. She will also help you know when your pet may next get offered a Job Promotion.

BREAKING NEWS
It's been seven weeks since King Baspinar has been seen or heard from. When Rune Rescue was announced, there was much excitment with the new discovery of Rune V, X and Y. These letters of the ancient Simerian language had been missing for centuries, found stuck at the top of a new Temple. Archeologists have been able to use the full alphabet to understand more about Simeria and one message in particular has the whole of Marada talking!

The newest temple (Simerian residents hope it will open to the public later this year) has a very detailed story written inside its walls, possibly explaining why the ancient city of Simeria collapsed several thousand years ago. The shows how a rich but gready leader is suddenly poisoned and overthrown by a brutal war, won by magic evil geese. What could this mean?

There are new rewards that you can win from Rune Rescue. Every time you send a score that is high enough, you will win one of these new item prizes. Just like the other High Score Rewards, you will only win one prize each time you send a score high enough. These prizes are additional to any MP, Score Points or Bonus Prizes you may also win. You can click the 'High Score Rewards' link on any game to see which score you need for each prize. Prizes include 3 new Runes which the Transubstantiation Temple can ask for.



The artwork for the 24 Runes that you can win from the Simerian Explorer has been updated.
