The name inheritence breeding feature has been turned off due to issues that have been brought up. We will be looking into what can be done to fix this before bringing it back or retiring this feature.
The Seekers area is being removed for now due to concerns about implications of lore. We will work on figuring out what to do about this before bringing it back.
The Shelter, Raffle, Auctions, and Seekers links have now been relocated to the Plaza.
This change was made after discussion with players and polling.
The decision was made between players and staff that the links on the adopts pages should be more personal (dealing with things such as your own personal storage, bios, breeding, and evolution options) with the distinction made against links in the Plaza that are more related to the community and other players, or features for selling and buying adoptables.
The Spotlight Contest is being taken down until further notice due to fundemental issues with species categories and voting by species.
This feature was brought over from another site, but after testing it on 4dopt, we see that it's not compatible with a site that's focussed on player-created species. The species voting aspect of the contest is unfortunately a basis of this feature, most of the feature is built around this aspect (including prize rewards).
