Registration has been fixed, as well as the IP queue! However we are still looking for a developer. The good news is, there have been a number of good prospects that have e-mailed us, and one in particular looks like a great fit for Furvilla. Let's definitely hope it pans out well!
In the meantime, what kind of rewards would you like to see for the referral page? Once we get a new developer on board, we can get back on track with the changes we have planned to make. The referral page's rewards is one of those places where we want to add a little extra polish and attention.

We come to you today with the unfortunate news that our developer has been missing since the server move in June. We know that some of you have been waiting for a fix to the daily streak, and many prospective players have e-mailed us expressing concern over being unable to join the game, but we have not been able to fix these problems without the aid of a developer. It appears at this time we must accept the inevitability of finding another programmer.
Until we are able to find a new programmer, the Oceandome event is on indefinite hiatus. Our focus right now is going to be finding a developer who can fix the registration bug and fix the IP queue (which was unfortunately damaged during the server move as well). At that point, we can address the daily streak and start thinking about the Oceandome event again, as all of the documents for the event are planned out and much of the content is ready, we simply need the programming to go forward with our plans.
This lack of programming staff has thrown a big wrench into all of our planned changes, so please bear with us while we try to find someone who can appropriately tend to our codebase. As you may guess, Furvilla is a very large and complex site. As such, we have to be vigilant with who we hire to ensure their skill level matches the demands of the codebase.
That said, if you are a programmer familiar with PHP and the Laravel framework and are interested in becoming a Furvilla developer, please contact us with your portfolio at [email protected]
We hope to find a new developer soon so we can get back on track. We'll let everyone know when we've found a good match!
NOTE: The Oceandome Event is NOT BEING CANCELLED, the Event is simply being POSTPONED.

Let me just start by saying Happy Birthday to the Furvilla Beta Open, can you all believe it’s been a year already?! We’ve had a lot of ups and downs but all in all I think we’ve had a lot of fun and we’re hoping to continue on this wild ride with all you amazing folks!
And with that said, now it’s that time, the first of the new month! And I am here again with some new goodies for you all!
The July FD Pets are here! Let's see what critters we have for the month of July...And I am sure you have noticed that there are only 3 new cuties joining us this month instead of 5, this is a permanent change. We hope that this will make things a bit more manageable for all you collectors out there. Now, onto the Minipets!
First, for those that love a pet that also doubles as an armoured ball we have Armaburlos!
The Birbodile is here! Who doesn’t love a pet that chomps and flies...
Their namesakes may be big but these guys sure aren’t...Let’s welcome the flittery, fluttery Draorse!
FD Pets can be obtained from the FurDollar Emporium. They have five day breeding cooldowns and are available for breeding until August 1st, when a new batch of FD Monthlies will be released.

Hello everyone, I really wish I was here with something fun and exciting for you today but just stopping in for a quick update.
We are still having some issues related to the Server move that we made recently and we are working to get them resolved as soon as we can but unfortunately it seems to be slow going at the moment. We appreciate your patience and the reports, we have seen them and are doing our very best! Please try not to worry too much if you have not received a reply on your particular report yet as we are getting quite a lot of them in every day, but please know that we are reading and checking into every one.
And as one of our biggest issues seems to be errors in using the Contact Us system you can find emails below to direct contact the staff.
- [email protected] will get you to Admin-Deinmaar for issues involving general community experience and your account such as bans, infractions, account info, ect.
- [email protected] will get you general support assistance and is the proper place to send suggestion emails as well.
- [email protected] will get you to Admin-Mat for any Paintie related issues you may be having.
Please be sure to label your messages clearly in the subject, and don't worry too much about possibly sending to the wrong email, we can always forward them to the correct department if something ends up misplaced.
We apologize that all this seems to be taking so long and hope that you can be patient with us for just a bit longer.

Hey all! Admin-Deinmaar here!
I have an unfortunate announcement today. I will be deactivating all Helper statuses. As great as I know that role has the potential to be, we've had a lot of unfortunate issues involving Helpers, as I don't think the responsibilities for the role were completely understood. I've avoided adding new Helpers while I tried to restructure, but it seems that it's going to take longer than anticipated. For those that are still interested, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for the restructure. I will eventually be opening up actual applications for the new Helper status, and I will expect any new Helpers to follow all rules applied to the position.
All Helpers statuses should be reset by this time. If you see any I missed, please be sure to send me a PM! My apologies to all my Helpers!

We will be experiencing some scheduled downtime starting at 8:30 PM Furvilla Time as we do some maintenance on our server. You can follow any updates on our Twitter account!
See you then!
Maintenance is complete and seems to have gone well! If you notice anything that seems off, please let us know. We know that some of you have expressed concern about losing your login streak. We will be looking for a solution for this when we are able to make contact with our coder next.
