Sorry for the lack of updates..

There will be an update later today.

Lots of news, but to answer everyone’s question: No, it looks like we’ll miss the end of the month mark. But not by much!

Anyway, in a few hours I will provide some more information.

    Hi there, just a quick question. I saw the statement Anyone who paid for June will get refunds. Is there somewhere i have to log in and pay and set up my avie and stuff? I must have missed that part. Something about ThereIM? A link would be helpful. Can’t wait to join in again.

    • #7 by Azrielle on 2011.06.30 - 11:18 am

      Oh sorry, Hehe i thought i missed something it was a joke. πŸ™‚ Still, looking forward to it!

  10. #13 by JasonMK on 2011.06.30 - 8:35 am

    Completely Off Topic, but accroding to the FAQ @

    “Will Makena Technologies continue to exist?

    Yes. We actually have some exciting educational projects in process, which we will continue to service.”

    Does anyone have any idea what some of thie educational projects where/are? I’ve been curious and never could find anything online…

  11. #14 by AnOldDeveloper on 2011.06.30 - 7:46 am

    I need to change my There clothes. I must be stinky by now. πŸ˜›

    I really can’t wait to reconnect with old friends in There and to make new designs.
    There’s developer program beats all others!

  12. #15 by Mademoiselle Fifi on 2011.06.30 - 7:17 am

    Try this out Michael……or anyone who dares…5 mins to prepare…and guess what…meat lovers like it.


    4 1/2 cups of water
    1/2 cup of Tamari Sauce
    1/3 cup of olive oil
    1 large onion diced
    1 teaspoon of garlic powder
    5 cups of rolled oats (quick cooking)
    1/4 cup of Torula Yeast (powder)

    Put all the ingredients (EXCEPT FOR THE OATS) in a pot and bring to boil, lower the heat, add the oats and cook for 5 minutes.
    Put into Onion Soup bowls or loaf pan and cook in the oven at 350F for 45 min.
    Or, shape into burghers and put on oiled cookie sheet and bake 45 min. 350F, turning them after 20 min.

    Slice and fry in a bit of oil

    Since you didn’t release ontime as promised, how about considering unbanning some folks? πŸ™‚

    • #23 by darkrounge on 2011.06.30 - 11:56 am

      I’m not banned but I’ve read why they ban you.

      1.) Buying stuff (someone told me they ban you if you buy like $40 worth in the game which is stupid :/) I never got banned on that, but it’s probably because I joined before hand.

      2.) messing around / childish – Totally agree with this one

      3.) Fraud – Again, I agree.

      4.) Hacking – Above two ^^

      5.) Someone reporting you – I don’t believe in this way of banning. I think if they decide to ban you atleast have enough evidence to do so! Else your giving yourself a bad look.

      But I saw that LOADS of people were banned from there, youtube video’s and forum threads.
      Either it’s your own fault or some bad admin had a bad day! But majority are immature.

      • #24 by ant1977 on 2011.06.30 - 1:54 pm

        I have never heard of them banning anyone for spending $40.00 before. I’ve purchased $5.00 – $200.00 at a single time and never was questioned about it. Heck, a neighborhood could run $200.00 a month easily and if you would get banned for $40.00 then there’s a lot of people getting in trouble. I would be one of them! I’ve also seen others who would call in to There and purchase $1,000.00 worth of Therebucks or more.

  14. #25 by darkrounge on 2011.06.30 - 6:46 am

    More info on what?

    ThereIM or the progress of getting there2 backup?

  15. #26 by Roxannie on 2011.06.30 - 6:44 am

    i’m relieved, i was broke and payday is tomorrow, rofl, sending some to my pay pal straight away, rofl woot, tyvm Mr. Wilson, i appreciate you

  16. #27 by Raymond on 2011.06.30 - 6:10 am

    I can wait! keep on keepin on!

  17. #28 by JasonMK on 2011.06.30 - 5:29 am

    Just gives me some more time to brush up on my spades.

  18. #29 by Dusky Rose on 2011.06.30 - 5:22 am

    Gasp, sputter, sputter, still holding my breath for “later today” news from yesterday. Cough, cough, wheeze.

    • #30 by iceange1 on 2011.06.30 - 6:31 am

    I say force everyone to spend the holiday with friends and family in RL, then open it on the 9th (my 8th There birthday)… or you could ignore that idea and open it on the 3rd (my 25th RL birthday). πŸ™‚

    • #44 by MrScrooge on 2011.06.30 - 3:59 am

      Happy early birthday!

  29. #45 by Suziequeen on 2011.06.29 - 9:05 pm

    When I’m driving in the car my grandson ask me” are we there yet ?”and I reply almost. He just smile’s and say’s almost GiGi we will be there soon all excited. The wait will be worth it.

  30. #46 by Mr_Perry on 2011.06.29 - 8:38 pm

    Thoughts to ponder while we wait….

    Good things come to those who wait….
    Patience is a virtue…..
    Haste makes waste…..
    Patience is the companion of wisdom.”……
    He that can have Patience, can have what he will”……
    β€œPatience is the ability to idle your motor when you feel like stripping your gears.”….
    β€œThe key to everything is patience. You get the chicken by hatching the egg, not by smashing it.”….
    β€œPatience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet.”…..
    β€œPatience is the key to paradise”…….

    not to be pushy but when you say not going to make it so you mean like a week over due?

      I had those for 2 months after There closed… still have the occasional depressed mood swing but once we found out the good news ive been on track.. ROFL “My name is Defector and Im a There-o-holic”

  39. #58 by Defector on 2011.06.29 - 5:04 pm

    Its ok, Were getting it back either way. I’m sure we can all wait a few more days/weeks

  40. #59 by Jennifer Rickenbacker on 2011.06.29 - 4:52 pm

  48. #68 by hugsalot on 2011.06.29 - 3:48 pm

    I assume we need to go though the avatar reclaim process before we can use ThereIM, right?

    • #69 by JasonMK on 2011.06.30 - 5:31 am

      I’ve assumed the same, but can’t say that I have seen that question answered definitively anywhere yet.

  52. #73 by HighFlier on 2011.06.29 - 3:03 pm

    Yea, no need to hurry. Go live after the 4th if you need and take a break to enjoy the fireworks. Don’t even worry about your blog, we’ll be fine. People in the US have so many plans this weekend for the holiday anyway and most will be drinking up gulpies like crazy and barbecuing outside. Come back refreshed, all shiny and new. πŸ™‚

    • #74 by Seg_Vio on 2011.06.29 - 6:13 pm

      After all these years of all the cliche’ happenings on hollidays I was gonna hide eggs on the 4th, and put fireworks in wicker baskets on Easter next year. That oughta spice things up!

    • #75 by mmeodiles on 2011.06.29 - 9:05 pm

      I totally agree with you Highflier (HighLighter)… should wait until after the july 4th for sure…you have real life..that is important…yeppers…

      • #76 by Jim on 2011.06.30 - 8:35 am

        Actually since end of month is pushed… July 4th would be an excellent coming-out / new & improved / independence-from-obscurity-or-some-other-word-that-fits-better date. “There 2.0 was born on July 4th! Declare Your Independence From a 2d World!” Have Depth! πŸ™‚
