Good morning and Happy April everyone!

You all know that the beginning of the month brings with it new DIs (monthly "donation" item sets) that help support the site's operation. This month is no different, but before I get to the DIs, I'd like to announce some exciting changes we have planned for Zantarni going forward...

... namely that we have decided to change Zantarni's look.

Specifically, instead of our more realistic 3-dimensional avatars and items, we will be simplifying Zantarni's look and adopting what we hope is a more "approachable" look and feel to our avatars, items, and site. Yes

This means we'll be slowly redesigning our existing items to be more consistent with the new site look, and making other necessary changes as we go along. Obviously, implementing this rather ambitious decision is going to take some time, so the Staff and I ask your patience and understanding as we push forward with these design changes.

... and all of this leads me to this month's DIs, which not only feature one of our long-standing member's item design ideas, but are the first two sets of items that reflect Zantarni's new look.


Presenting....

Arrow D Carnival #1

      D Carnival Cape
      D Carnival Top
      D Carnival Bottoms
      D Tomato Tail
      D Tomato Horns


Arrow D Carnival #2

      D Nightshade Horns
      D Nightshade Tail
      D Masquerade Mask
      D Owl Mask
      D Plague Mask
      D Gargoyle Mask


So run on over to the Gem Shop and pick up a couple gems so that you can buy these DIs! Yes Yes

Enjoy!

Oh! Also, I know March's DIs disappeared a day early. If anyone was looking to purchase March's DIs on their last day of "availability" and didn't get the chance, please just PM or email me... we'll work it out (No glitches or other weirdness to report here as to why this happened other than my apparent inability to count or read a calendar correctly Embarassed )


And for the interested (I can't believe I almost forgot!!), I thought I'd give you a sneak peek to our re-envisioned avatar bases: M | F. They'll be implemented, along with the other skins, as soon as we get a chance...

Bo...is conflicted. Or maybe confused. Probably both. Laughing

This is a huge change for the site and Bo is definitely interested in seeing how it turns out in real time. Yes

Unless this is just an April Fools joke. D:

Speaking of, Happy Birthday Blaze. ^_^

No offense to anyone, but I sincerely hope that changing the avatars is an April Fool's joke. I love our avatars and items the way they are. I always try to be positive, but, unfortunately, I'm not a fan of this idea. I do think there are things that could be done to improve the site, but, in my opinion, this should not be one of them. Zan's avatars is one of the biggest reasons I chose this site. The new look just looks too...I don't know what word I'm looking for...flat? I love you all though. Heart

Love this!

I trust no one on this day. Ninja
Not sure if April Fools prank or if actually happening. *shifty eyes*

But I love this nonetheless. Very Happy

Here I am taking it all seriously but it probably is an April Fool's joke. No one else freaked out like I did. XD

I'm afraid a flatter, more cartoon like look may be taken as just poorly made art by many.

We love all the work you do for us, though, Queen Blazestorm.

First of all, I love you all! Heart Luffles

Secondly, I really appreciate your feedback, your honesty, and your willingness to share your thoughts with me... even if it seems difficult or potentially unpopular to do so... Heart Heart

... and thirdly, yes, this is an April Fools' Day joke. I hope it didn't freak anyone out too much (Rayven)! And I hope you guys do like these items and that you enjoy them! I can't wait to see how you guys incorporate them in to your outfits and the rest of our items!

Please know that I wouldn't do something like that to our cute little avatars - besides the logistical considerations (near impossible), I agree with you... it would be a biiiig step backwards for Zantarni... in a number of ways.




Now, that said, and all joking aside, these DIs are real and will remain up for the remainder of the month. We will probably do a "more finished" version of these items as well... later, when our pixelists have some time to dedicate to that task. These items are too cute to leave like this (although there is something kinda charming about them in their "cartoon" form too, IMO)! Thank you to long-term citizen Dusty, for posting them in the suggestion thread Heart (seeeee... we really do read these things! XD )


There are another batch of DIs for April as well... to be released as soon as I can get there, to be posted in their own announcement. I think you guys will really like them Yes



...and yes, Bo... the goat... I know... I know... jeeeze! Rolling Eyes XD Heart

Well, for starters, you know I'll share my thoughts...appropriate or not. XD

I mean, you've already found my goat. XD Laughing

Yesh, I lost my mind for a minute Queen Blaze. XD I'm just glad that it was indeed a joke, and that you still love a panicked Rayven. Heart Thank you for giving my heart some exercise. XD
