I'll start with the good news, the Xmas event this year turned out very well, with many new players joining, and old players coming back to receive their gifts! There were a few hiccups along the way, if anyone has broken items let me know, but overall a majority of the events worked out well! We got over 70 players participating in the Secret Panda Event this year, with many more snowballs flung, presents found, and calendars opened!
Now the bad news... Unfortunately, there was a bug which I didn’t notice during release of the secret panda which means a majority of the presents that were submitted to the Secret Panda were lost. This was completely my fault, and I'm sorry. The bright side to this is that I do have a list of people who submitted items, and have personally created a present for everyone who took part! Even if you donated a piece of dirt and a feather, it’s the season of giving, so you will receive a present from “Panda Claus” this year, though maybe a few days late! Presents will be given out in the next few days. I'll be learning from this mistake, and definitely making sure this doesn’t happen again.
TD:LR: Instead of getting a present from a random person, people will be getting a present from me due to a bug. Read the full post for details.
