A Decade of Virtuadopt Comes to an End

Post by yankeesrule3526 » March 31st, 2019, 11:12 pm

Ah April. It is in my top 12 favorite months. Winter is over and the birds are singing. The leaves will soon appear back on the trees and, the best part of all...

It is with great sadness that today, we are announcing the closure of Virtuadopt. Without a steady developer, the site has fallen into disrepair and we do not have the time or manpower to right the ship. Virtuadopt was first started by stefanol, close to eleven years ago as an adoptable website where a couple close, online friends were able to upload custom images as adoptables. Eventually, I came across a website called Arkeis, that had cool Pokmon pictures that I used for some of my custom adoptables. This sparked life into Virtuadopt again to become what you see today. Pokémon are creatures of all shapes and sizes who live in the wild or alongside humans. For the most part, Pokémon do not speak except to utter their names. There are currently more than 700 creatures that inhabit the Pokémon universe. During their adventures, Pokémon grow, level up and become more experienced and even, on occasion, evolve into stronger Pokémon.There are over a dozen different types of Pokémon. Why are you still reading this? I literally copied the last half of text from the interwebz to take up space and distract you from the fact that

An Update to Quests
A new, exciting update has been made to Quests! That's all we have to say. No thrills, no spills, no juicy details. Want to learn more? Hala will seek you out.

The Return of the Raffle
Yep, the Virturaffle is back! But, things are a little different. First, you are only allowed to purchase 400 tickets for each raffle. Drawings are now held every six hours instead of three. Currently, winners must wait fourteen drawings before they can enter again, so pick your prize carefully. Prizes now rotate sequentially to ensure an even distribution.

Spooky
Something seems....off, about this Pokédex.

Lol, I figured this was gonna be an April Fool's, but the first few sentences felt a little too real.

Then I got tired of reading and skipped to the April Fool's part.

Neat updates, though, glad to see the Raffle return in a more healthy form.

Happy Birthday, VA! :)
I'm looking forward to the new stuff! Not sure about the raffle changes, though ... 6 hours seems pretty long! But we'll see how that turns out. (And I really like the ticket limit!)

I just noticed that winner of Raffle wasn't chosen or it's just a bug with winners list?

I found VA accidentally in far 2014. I just graduated from university and was looking through the websites for a job. At one point I decided to make a break and visited some native pokemon forum. There in one user's signature I found shiny Cyndaquil.
I was totally in love with the artwork and clicked on it. I was amazed by the site, all the pictures was so high quality made, at some point even better than official arts! that decided to sign up.
It's my first and only such kind of a game and I'm very glad that I made a break 5 years ago ;)
