Happy May, everyone! We've made it through another month. As always, before we dive into this month, make sure to check out last month's winners in the Winner’s Showcase!
The Enlightened Plot is finally coming to a close, but you've still got a few more days to finish! We'll be rewarding all users who've participated with a complimentary pupa! We received some comments from our suggestion box from members who were unhappy with how the RNG worked for this event. We keep past items in our prize pools for members who may not have been around the previous years to earn them. However, we hear your concerns! Unfortunately, it was a little bit too late in this event to change things, but we think we've found a solution. We will be distributing a Rainbow Pupa to every member who submitted at least one prompt in the event! This item will allow you to choose one morph potion, one insect, and one mutation item! We hope this is a happy compromise, and we will keep these suggestions in mind for future events to come!
Moving on, we're going to take a small breather and enjoy a relaxing MYO event! We're inviting all of our users to make a companion jollybean for our Birthday Wishes event! As we prepare for the Mimix update and our summer event, we figured this would be a nice break for everyone! Everyone who participates in the event will not only receive a free MYO slot, but also a Celebration Goodie Bag with some of our annual birthday items. I'll (Loppy) personally be working on some Celebration pet rebases throughout the month to freshen things up a bit! Continuing on the theme of birthdays, you'll also notice that Crabby Chef and Lottie's Luck have a twist this month! We'll be asking members to recreate site items, but that's not all! Entering these activities will enter you in for a chance to win a custom slot! Two lucky winners will receive their very own custom design, so tie up your apron strings, preheat your oven, and get cooking!
Separate from this month's events, we'll also be rolling out a few smaller changes in the months to come! These will be highlighted in change logs, however, here's a brief glimpse of what we've changed and what we're working on:
- The Monthly Prompt's crumb reward has been increased to 8k crumbs.
- From henceforth, the “Featured Activity” will be Member of the Month! This means that entering MoTM will make you eligible to be featured for the next month! We will be renaming it to prevent any confusion that may arise. Reward kindness with kindness!
- In an effort to maximize efficiency, we'll be phasing out “sticker borders” on items. If you see items that no longer have outlines, this is not a glitch!
And finally… Strudel Cafe is going LLC! To celebrate our third birthday, the development team has finally pushed the filings for LLC. This will open us up to a lot more opportunities, and we are so excited for everything we have in store! We'll be working on our first merch launch soon, and will be sending out surveys to see what our members would like to see from us the most! Jen, Ren, and I have big plans for the future of Strudel Cafe, and we are so excited for all of you to be in on the ride!
Lots of love, and have a happy May!
