Updates on Recent Changes!

Hello! We have a few more updates to share with you today:

Changing Pet Names!

There is now a way for non-gold accounts to rename their pets! Now that pet names are no longer unique, we wanted to make renaming pets easier and more accessible. Instead of making it something you buy, we're now only limiting it by frequency:

  • Regular accounts may rename one pet per week. That's any pet, but only once per week.
  • Gold Accounts will continue to work how they have: one name change per pet, per month.
The weekly limit resets on the rollover from Sunday to Monday each week, and the monthly limit resets on the 1st day of each month.

Pet Name Loyalty Totems
Some of you may have noticed an issue with Pet Name Loyalty Totems: It would not allow you to change the pet's name, but it would take the item. If this happened to you, please file a ticket and you will receive be given a new Loyalty Box as reimbursement. In addition, those who were affected by this issue will be given a name change that will not count towards your account limit.

The Loyalty Petname Totem is no longer available. Those who currently have a Loyalty Petname Totem can change it back into a Loyalty Box to choose a different prize.

Subscriptions: Loyalty Benefits

The Councilor and Goddess plans now have an extra benefit: stamps for your Loyalty Rewards Card! The Councilor plan will give you 1 stamp and the Goddess plan will give you 2 stamps.

For those who currently have an active Councilor or Goddess subscription: We are going to award these loyalty stamps to you retroactively over the next day or two. You will receive a sidebar notification once your new stamp(s) have been added to your account.

Other Notable Changes

  • The Pet Friends page has been updated to require both a pet name and username when you add a new pet friend, so that it can look up the right pet.
  • Buddy Gold Accounts can now be given to users who already have a Gold Account, and will be added to their existing GA time!
  • The new pool for clearing legacy names at the Bathhouse now has a clear warning in the confirmation pop-up that it will NOT change your pet's name - only the legacy name info will be cleared. This has also been made clearer on the Change Name page.

So if I went ahead and renamed a pet, will it take a while to show on the user profile? c:

If your card was already full, does that mean you do not get the stamps?

Re: Loyalty Rewards Card Stamps

It's kind of "unfair" that only the 2 high tiers get it.
I don't think, that we could sell Custom Wearable Vouchers, or could we?
People, who have no use for those and not for Buddy Gold Accounts (which I consider a weird idea altogether, unless we would be allowed to sell them?), either, shouldn't be forced to spend $10 or 15, which I think is a lot of money, for "nothing".

Do we still get stamps/points for buying CSC only?

@Bug Thank you for clearing that up

I was going ask that as well.

@pegusus_98 No, gold accounts get one name change per pet per month. Meaning if you have 20 pets and a Gold Account, you can do 20 renames (1 time per pet) each month. If you don't have a Gold Account, you can pick one of those pets to rename each week.

Regular accounts may rename one pet per week. That's any pet, but only once per week.
Gold Accounts will continue to work how they have: one name change per pet, per month.

I'm confused. non gold gets to rename 4 times in a month(once per week), while gold can only change once a month?

@Bug, Thanks for letting me know, I was curious because someone else brought this up on one of the other threads and I didn't see a reply.

Bug

@Aloysius What Keith meant is that it would be great for people to use buddy GAs as a kind of "thank you" or expressing sentiments like that. For instance "thanks for writing that great forum post" or "thanks for trading me that wishlist item earlier" (not like trading FOR the GA, but like maybe you did a trade with them to finally get an item or CW you've wanted for ages, and the buddy GA is an extra thank-you for helping you finally get it!)

You guys really are just totally rocking it lately! I am not into pets but seeing so much progress on the site has me excited to still be here. I am looking forward to see what new changes you bring. And so unrelated but maybe someday we can have some form of cults back, they really did help foster friendships and sense of community. Thanks for your hard work making these changes, listening to feedback, and answering questions! These are the things that made me love subeta!

Thank you for the regular account perk! ♥️

Aloysius

@Keith You said, "has just the item you were looking for". Does that mean we can trade buddy gold accounts for items. As in, someone in trades has an item I want, and they are looking for a gold account, I can trade (gift) them a buddy gold account for the item?

Can we advertise in the forums that we are selling/trading buddy gold accounts?

I'm so happy. Thank you Subeta for being such a positive, happy place this week. <3

Yes, finally the news I was waiting for!!! Now I will probably get a subscription soon, but before I do, will it affect my Buddy GA or will it add to it?

Aurora

@Keith - That makes sense with how you explained it; I appreciate it. ^^ I'm able to view it a bit better now with that perspective. Also, I do think it's pretty rad you guys are always answering everyone's questions and listening to feedback. Not all sites have staff like Subeta.

Just thinking that I spent 1500 CSC just to rename my pets makes me MEGA SAD!
I renamed them earlier this year.
1500 CSC thrown in the trash? perhaps... ><

@Bug thanks for the clarification! It wasn't too convoluted - I just confused myself. XD

Thank you for continuing to improve these updates, listening to feedback, and keeping us abreast of the changes. ( ꈍᴗꈍ)

@Aurora No -- the buddy perk isn't really considered in the price of the perks. If you look at the value (CW voucher + GA + CSC) it's way more, the buddy GA is just a way to help socialize & get more GAs around the site for the users who can't afford them (so -- if someone makes a great post, or has just the item you were looking for, you can gift a gold account)

We are planning to keep looking at the perks offered, and potentially add more pet related perks, but we won't be making different tiers or versions of the offerings with pick & choose perks.

Aurora

@Bug Would there ever be a variant for the subscription tiers that replaces the buddy gold accounts with a different perk?
0

Bug

@Siellby Your understanding is correct!
0

Bug

@Aurora Yup, only to other users, that's why they're called buddy GAs!

@Kniga
1. The "rollover from Sunday to Monday" means that it will reset at Sunday midnight (which is when Sunday changes to Monday - maybe I worded that a bit convoluted-ly!) So Sunday is the last day of the week, Monday is the first day of the next week.
2. Yes, since the rule would be "Did you already change a pet's name this week?"
3. No, since the rule would be "Did you already change this pet's name this month?" And the answer would be yes, regardless of what type of account you when you changed the name. I hope that makes sense!
1

Siellby

So...let's say you only change the name of one pet. With a regular account, you can change that one pet's name every week (not sure why anyone would, but you never know), but with a gold account you can only change that same pet's name once a month. Or is there a limit on how many times a single pet's name can be changed?

Chrysariel

Thanks, this is awesome!

1. I thought I understood this until I had to explain it - is Sunday the last day of the week, or is Saturday?

2. If you have a regular account, can you choose to change the same pet's name every week?

3. If you have a regular account and change a pet's name, and then you switch to a gold account (or vice versa), can you change the same pet's name for a second time in the same month?

Bug

@Stiles You can make suggestions in the Suggestion forums :)

Bug

@Mail Yes, it is account tied. So if you change a pet's name, then transfer it to your friend in the same month, your friend can also change that pet's name since they haven't changed that pet's name yet.
2

Aurora

So... just for clarity, buddy gold accounts can't be used on ourselves, just on others? I don't have active friends anymore, so for me this benefit is a waste otherwise. I could just give them to random people, but... yeah. That's one of the main things keeping me from subscribing since it might be a useless benefit for me on the higher tiers.
1

Mail

Is the "one name change per pet, per month." account tied? Like if someone changes a pets name, and then transfers the pet to another user in the same month, does the new user have to wait until the next month?

Thank you!!

Stiles

@Bug is there a place to suggest ideas for this i think a few would be interesting (for people that like wardrobe could be more free layers without needing to buy, or even choice of a cash shop item, for battlers could be leveling up stats, for book collectors, could be a book they don't have in their collection yet.. I can't remember everything in the box so these could already be in there)

Congratulations!!! Your pet (formerly Kyrie for the Fallen) is now named Kyrie!

Awesome <3 I'm happy keeping his legacy name since he was the first pet I ever had back in 2009 but I'm so happy to have the main display one shortened.

That’s awesome! I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!

Bliss

@Stiles
Oh lol. I didn’t read the comments
0

Bug

@Stiles @Bliss Yes! It's currently being discussed behind-the-scenes :)

@Brinny You can fill up your rewards cards twice each time, so you can get up to 20 stamps total (10 stamps per card). If you already have 20 stamps then you've reached the limit, I'm afraid, so no you wouldn't be able to get 21 stamps for example, just like it wouldn't give you more stamps if you bought more CSC when your card was already filled up.

Stiles

@Bliss this is what i was just asking. Something new that actuallt benefits everyone should replace it, that would be nice

Brinny

Subscriptions: Loyalty Benefits
The Councilor and Goddess plans now have an extra benefit: stamps for your Loyalty Rewards Card! The Councilor plan will give you 1 stamp and the Goddess plan will give you 2 stamps.

...and if your stamp is currently filled? would these carry over? just curious.

Since the pet name loyalty totem is no longer relevant, Will a new option be added to replace it?

Edited the news post real quick to add an important note about the pet name totems:

The Loyalty Petname Totem is no longer available. Those who currently have a Loyalty Petname Totem can change it back into a Loyalty Box to choose a different prize.

@omg_carrie Yes, that's right :)

Nice! Thanks Subeta!

@omg_carrie

Thank you so much this is all pretty epic!

omg_carrie

Oh rad!

Just making sure I get this: So if I had a GA, I could change all of my pet names right now, but with a regular account I could only change one name this week? Had to reread that bit a few times lol, I'm tired.
