About Automatic Upgrades

Postby Seven Shikami » 12 Jun 2009, 20:09

Starting today, we're turning off the automatic sending of upgrade kits for some of our products. For these items, it's just too hard to track down every single copy you may have rezzed in SL to replace them -- and if you don't, you keep getting kit after kit, due to the way HippoUpdate works. It's a pain in the butt and we're just as tired of it as you are.

Affected products (updates will not be sent automatically)
* Fishing Area Kit: Vendors, Servers, Contest Boards, FAPT, etc.
* Aquariums
* Contest Expansion Pack

Unaffected products (updates will still be sent automatically)
* Fishing Rods
* Boats

We still believe in offering free updates for a lifetime after buying our products, of course. We're just fiddling around to find the best way to fulfill that promise!

For the Fishing Area Kit parts, you can use the Proof of Purchase that comes with your FAK to grab them manually whenever you like, so it's not like you can never upgrade again. We'll also be working on a more friendly auto-upgrade solution to come in the weeks ahead.

BONUS INFO FOR PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY CAME TO THE FORUMS: Surprise! You're about to learn some clues about our upcoming 7Seas innovations. Call it a perk for participating in our community website!

The following three song lyric lines and quotes are in some way related to three huge upcoming things in 7Seas.

1. "****, tell your children not to walk my way." / "**** don't preach, I'm in trouble deep."
2. "Do what you want 'cause a **** is free, you are a ****!"
3. "If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire: The A-****."

As long as we get a warning here that there's a new upgrade :)
BTW I googled the lyrics since I knew none and ended up with four words ... which also made no sense!

#1 is a person with a "Christian" name who doesn't practice the religion.
#2 I'm still trying to figure out.
#3 involves the Army and a black conversion van.

Yes, we'll be issuing group notices + forum news announcements whenever an upgrade is released.

The missing words are the key. In fact, they're the only part that matters.
