CHATLANDS SITE WIDE UPGRADES! (June 1st, 2020)

We're in the process of upgrading our Chatlands servers. This is going to cause some downtime but the outcome should be better performing servers. Sorry for the outages. Our provider assures us that this shold be a relatively fast process.

The Chatlands 2020 Kickstarter completed successfully!

The Chatlands 2020 Kickstarter finished and we are busy working on the fulfillment step. We sent out emails with links to the fulfillment page a couple of weeks ago (and the reminder emails too). If you made a pledge and haven't gotten any emails about fulfillment, please let underdog know asap! Thank you.

We are setting up a CHATLANDS specific forum where you can learn the details about what's coming to Chatlands 2020 later this year! We will post a link to the forum here when things are ready to go.

I want to once again say THANK YOU to all of the Kickstarter backers AND to the many people that contributed their art and their energy to make this a campaign a success! It's good to have a community right now and I really appreciate the strong show of support.

Sincere thanks to each of you,

Bill Underwood

The Chatlands 2020 Kickstarter is here!

We have officially launched the Chatlands 2020 Kickstarter!

We worked furiously to bring together what some people have described as the biggest event in Chatlands history and it's finally live!

Visit http://chatlands.com/2020 to see the kickstarter page" and learn the amazing details about what's coming to CHATLANDS later this year!

Dear Chatlands Community,

First, I would like to thank you all for all of your support with the launch of the Chatlands 2020 Kickstarter. Within the first few days of its launch we met our initial goal and we are already well on our way to reaching our first stretch goal. None of this progress towards Chatlands 2020 would have been possible without all of our gracious contributors and backers.

With the launch of the Kickstarter, and the imminent revamp of Chatlands, we will unfortunately be discontinuing the reassignment program of dead/unused chat shells. Beginning immediately all abandoned or inactive chat sites will be taken under review and removed in preparation for relaunch. We apologize for this inconvenience, however we have much in store for our projected October relaunch and we hope you will join us for the momentous occasion.

Sincerely,

===underdog===

WOLFHOME 20TH ANNIVERSARY!
October 31st, 2019


October 31st, 2019 was the 20th anniversary of the Wolfhome 2D Avatar Chat

We had a great time. I hope you were there for it! As we do every year, the site was set to free subscriptions until after Halloween. HOWLOWEEN VILLAGE was a big hit. Folks got lost in the corn maze, wandered around the haunted forest, checked out the spooky graveyard and lots of other new rooms.

UNDERDOG, FOURPAWS and lots of old friends were there! Underdog even talked a bit about the Chatlands 2020 Kickstarter. More details on that will be posted here shortly!

CONVERTING TO HTTPS
June 24th, 2018


For far too long, Chatlands and the related sites such as Wolfhome and Cats Paw Island have been running on clear text connections. While our sites don't send or receive any financial information (all of that is handled via PayPal) we do process email addresses, passwords and other things that might be indirectly useful to criminals. For instance, many people use the same password on multiple sites. If a hacker learns your email address and password here, and you're using the same login information at your bank, that's just not a good idea in general, but we can at least try and keep that information from falling into the wrong hands on our site.

Well, it turns out Google Chrome has the same idea. They've announced that their new version of Chrome, coming out sometime in July, 2018, will warn people about insecure connections. FireFox already does this. It's the push we needed to switch over to HTTPS and we're doing that as soon as possible.

However! That means that there's a very good chance the site will be *offline* (or showing some problems) for the next several days while I try getting SSL working correctly. Thanks in advance for your patience on this. I've been at it for several hours already today, and I'm making progress, but there's several hours (possibly days) of programming left to be done before we're finished.

CHATLANDS™ REGISTRATION CHANGES
July 23rd, 2017


We are changing the Chatlands™ registration policy.

Some people have been using disposable email in order to "ban hop" on Chatlands™. There's also "Hotmail" and other Microsoft email servers that delete what they consider spam, rather than putting it into a "spam" or "junk" folder. This means that the user has no idea that they received that email. This makes it impossible to validate your Chatlands™ account. For these and other reasons, we have decided to require that when registering for a new account only the following email domains will be accepted.
aol.com, gmail.com, icloud.com, me.com and yahoo.com (including yahoo's international domains)
We will update and expand this list from time to time. If you don't already have an account with one of these email services, you will need to create one first (it's free) before you create your Chatlands™ account.

Note: This only applies to new accounts. If you registered with some other email address, you can keep using that one. We apologize for this inconvenience, but we feel that this will help us to provide a more pleasant experience for all users on Chatlands™. Thank you for your understanding.



If you want to help Chatlands™ grow, please tell your friends!
- Thanks! -
