Experimental Toolbar Updated
For anyone using the new experimental IM toolbar in Labs -- based on user feedback, added Messages and Friends and Outfits (if you also have Outfits enabled in Labs).

We still plan to add editing of quick links sometime next week.

(Also, since some people were confused: the new toolbar REPLACES the old one, so you have to both a) have your toolbar on, and b) have turned on the new toolbar in Labs).

Zombie Fish Update
We've pushed out a fix for the zombie fish (thanks, Edy!), but there is a small glitch that you should know about. If you come into your tank and there are fish that are due to be expired, then you may get a warning that "There was a problem with your tank." All you need to do in this case is reload your tank, and you will should find that a) the zombie fish have been removed, and b) you will have drops for the dead fish in your inventory.

If you run into problems please report them in this aquarium glitch thread.

Zombie Fish / Meebo
Whoops, one more thing on the fish fix: we only check your tank for dead fish once per day. So, if you had already checked your tank today, the fix will not affect you until tomorrow.

Also: pushed out minor fix for Meebo that will fix some users that were having problems.

Return Of The Zombies
Okay, after trying out our fix and taking a look at the logs it's looking like there is another edge case with the caching that we need to fix. We've returned to the previous fix and will try pushing out an updated fix on Monday. Thanks for your patience and understanding.

zOMG Video Preroll
Given that users were having so many problems with the zOMG preroll, we've reduced the length back of the mandatory delay. We appreciate it if you do watch the video, but for those users that are having problems seeing the videos, you'll be able to continue to the game after 5 seconds.

Zombie Fish Update
We have a fix for this that we had hoped would go out today, but it just cleared QA and it outside our launch window, so instead we will get it out around 12:30pm tomorrow (PST). We'll make another dev announcement tomorrow when it goes live.
Let the flushing begin!

We've released the fix for Aquarium zombie fish. You should be able to flush your dead fish and receive their drops. If you've already tried to flush them today, then you'll have to wait 24 hours and try again.

Zombie Fish Redux
Once more, with feeling.

Backend changes for the aquarium are live -- going into your aquarium should retire any dead fish, and you will get drops from your poor deceased pets.

Note that we only run the check once per day, so if you've already gone into your aquarium today, your fish won't be fixed until tomorrow.

Meebo Ads
We've updated the Meebo Instant Messenger toolbar in Labs so that it does not display ads if your ads are off for the rest of the site.

(And, sorry for the duplicate message about the aquarium fix!)
Saving Outfits

The bug with outfits not equipping all items is fixed. You'll have to reequip, and resave any outfits that had the problem.

The outfit thumbnail shows the items, but some items weren't saved in the database.

New Manga Out
You asked for more storyline, you're getting more storyline! A whole bunch of manga is headed your way, released a page a day.

Revel in the appearance of Gambino's younger, tougher brother, Rambino. Be shocked at the poignant deaths of two beloved characters. Ponder the startling secret that Rufus uncovers and its implications for every single person in Gaia.(*)

(*) Events listed in this dev notice are not canon and bear no resemblance to the events actually portrayed. Just go and read the manga!

An update on the Salon Durem problem. The TL;DR is that we expect everything to be fixed by 5:00PM.

Salon Durem Fixed
It's fixed! Store is back on, your eyes and hair should be on your head where they belong, and for your trouble we've refunded any gold you've spent in Salon Durem on the problem items. (Many, many thanks go to [72], edy, and DARKNRGY for the amazingly quick turnaround for the fix).

Manga Schedule
The difference between weekday and every day has been tragically made clear to yours truly by the writers and artists.

Henceforth, the manga pages will be released every weekday, which means there will be a new manga page every weekday until the beginning of March!
