    FaunaSphere Memories

    I've already posted screens of my final moments in FaunaSphere (in the screenshots section), but I think that those of us who still love FS will always remember this moment:



    We all have stories about special friends and moments we shared in FS - what are yours?

    It has been almost a year now and I still cannot believe that FS is gone. I miss my babies and still can't watch a video without tearing up. I made a couple videos on the last day but they are not particularly good because I had no time to learn Snagit which is what I used. I have taken some stills from the videos. It really hurts to look at those videos and watch Quilty tour my main sphere. sadly I got no videos of the other two spheres.

    On the last day I tried to leave my sphere to join everyone at the Watering Hole but I just could not do it. I couldn't take Quilty away from his home and friends. I felt that should FS ever, by some miracle, be revived and be in the state we left it, I might have trouble getting back "Home" if I had not been there when the game closed. I don't know if I will ever get over this.

    I have found joy and old FS friends at "Glitch" and love it just as much. I have a "Home" there now and a few animals to tend - pigs, chickens and butterflies. We have been promised pets in the future and that is something I look forward to. Maybe I will have a dog that I can name 'Quilty". Maybe he will even be Red! BTW, I did have a pig named "Pigman" - Lol! Also, there is an area in Glitch where we refugees named all the pigs with names meaning "Soon" including "Soon", "the Near Future", "Any Minute now", "Tomorrow", etc. Those names were "soon" changed by other players but we had fun with it for a while.

    I forgot to mention something that I am just bursting with pride at the seams over! Some of our very own Faunasphere friends are now employed by Tiny Spick are on Staff at "Glitch"! This is so exciting! On staff now are Essie Kitten (SC___ some number I forget), Rascalmom (RM), Hburger is an intern. There may be one or two others as well. Maybe if BFG had hired some of us, FS would have lasted longer. I and many others are volunteer Greeters at "Glitch". We greet new players when they first enter the game. I guess you could call us unofficial Staff - Lol! I often think that our Faunasphere "invasion" has been a great success!

    Putting together all of my fauna montages today really gave me a pang of regret for what we lost. A few months ago, I PM'd Solice over at BF to ask if there was any way and any form that FS might be back someday... any chance at all. She shot me down without even blinking (it seemed) Cry

    I met such wonderful people in FS, I so miss talking to them every day... I know that many have moved on to Glitch, and that there's a Facebook FaunaSphere memories page, but since I know that I'm not the only one who is leery of Facebook, and likewise too busy for Glitch, I'm hoping that this section of the forum will see a lot of use Smile

    Not sure if any of you are in the FS Memories group on FB. But Annby posted a few days ago about a game coming out similar to FS later this year. Woohoo, has got us all excited. She will update us when she knows more.

    Really! I've been playing Glitch, and there are some great similarities. In the next few weeks they'll be redoing the housing to be more like what we loved in FaunaSphere, so I'm really excited about that. A lot of our wonderful FS friends are playing the game, and it's been sooooo nice to reconnect with them! Let me know if you'd like an invite! There's a Glitch section down there in the Free Online Games section Wink

    I have 4 accounts on Glitch lol. Yep, I'm looking forward to the housing and upgrading of it. I loved it when street projects were around, you work on them to open a new region or street. That was my thing at glitch, hope they come back soon.

    One year has passed and it almost seems as though Faunasphere was a wonderful dream that I had. My memories are fading for much of it but the Fauna remain and the great Community is still alive in other locations. Thank you all for making Faunasphere such a pleasure, a wonderful experience that did so much for me at a very low point in my Life. I may forget the details but the love will always own a warm corner of my heart.

    It's that time again -- the day that FaunaSphere winked out of existence forever. I spent those final moments in my secondary sphere with a group of friends: MaryLiLamb, Eleandra, Shepherdmoon, Barbarafish, bellagoth and I showed off all of our beautiful fauna, reminisced, did "tricks", and just generally enjoyed each others' company until FS pulled the plug. They gave us an extra 12 minutes or so, which was nice, but still... It's been two years and I still miss it.

    RIP FaunaSphere Offering You are gone, but never forgotten Wub

    I absolutely still miss it too! FS was my first experience with an MMO and at the time I had no idea how special it was. It will be a treasured memory for years to come.

    eta: Love the FS banner!
