The reason why I'm posting this is because I thought about posting this a lot in my dreams. But where have the devs been? There hasn't really been a FairyABC update in a while. I get that they're busy but if any of you have contact, can you please remind them about the site? It just feels dead to me now. I'm not rushing them or anything. I just feel like they need to do more work on this site (maybe they are, it's just not published yet). I don't know. I'm only posting this because of my dreams.

thank you for publicly posting about this; i believe it's been on all of our minds for months now. i ...

As someone who used to be on the site every single day around 2016-2017 and has now devolved into a lurker, I personally left the forums because of all the technical issues and boredom from a lack of updates. The poor management, confusing UI system (of both forum and world), and inability to even access the actual game without downloading a completely different browser drew me away.

I admit that I'm a sucker for nostalgia, but why even bother beating a dead horse when I can support newer games/franchises with friendlier UI systems and promising development? It's sentimental to log onto this site once in a while, but that's all the charm fairyabc has. The nostalgia trip definitely gets old after a while when you see nothing has really changed.

I appreciate your positivity and I'm still glad there is a sense of community within the forums. I remember when pixie hollow just shut down and I heard that they were reviving the game through fairyabc. I was so excited just waiting for it and beyond amazed when fairyabc became available to the public. A few years later, the nostalgic factor has started to wear off and even though PH still has a place in my heart, I have no shame in saying that I've moved on from waiting on updates from this site. Whether the devs renew the domain or not, the site has had a good run and having the site come to fruition was a great feat in itself.

While I am at peace with the site closing down, no amount of faith, trust, and pixie dust can excuse the devs who've straight up ghosted their entire project. It's like they've taken their donations and ran. Receiving some kind of closure or an update is definitely needed.

I wholeheartedly agree with all the statements above. I am extremely appalled at the fact that the developers have not once notified the players nor the staff about anything. Just now, as I am typing this reply, the forum glitched out on Maxthon and I suspect it'll only get worse.

Both the game and the forum are deteriorating from no maintenance and it's quite upsetting knowing that the end is near. I still have some hope that the developers will return and fix everything, but that hope is running very low. I do sincerely hope that they remember that they had devoted players and staff donate to help them with the site, and I hope that the money was used responsibly. All in all, I'm extremely upset by their actions of abandoning the community when we deserve SO much better.

THIS I wish they'd at least tell us they're on a hiatus instead of leaving us hanging, but we got no warning or notice whatsoever. The site is really falling because of it. There isn't much activity anymore at all. I feel like they've given up on FairyABC, or at least that's how it seems right now. I hope that changes in the future, honestly.

I agree with all of the above in general. If they had concentrated on the original game & not added all the extra stuff untilll the game was stable would have more sense! I still check once a week or so here but just saying there is hope in another direction but I think we need some actual mature people to help with the development & running of the game, discord or any forum... Take care all <3

I comprehend everyone's dismay by the departure of the developers.  I am also dismayed by the lack of commitment they have been giving to the site.  They took up the job to put this whole community's structure together (an impressive feat, by New Media standards).  Now they have to accept responsibility for doing so.  If they cannot handle the responsibility, they should not have taken the job.  Simple logic!!

If any of the developers see this post or this thread, please come back!!  Nowadays, FairyABC.com is one of the few means of escape I still have anymore, and I know I am not the only one who feels that way!!  Yes, life can be hard, yet places of innocence (like this site is meant to be) help us cope with whatever is taking place.  Once again, please come back!!  It feels sad and hurtful not having you around!!

Hey Everybody (or who's left). Sorry to say the Developers (Fzrasu and Wind) have not done anything  ...

I absolutely agree, and I really don't understand why they just up and abandoned us like this. It's very unprofessional and rude to leave without warning and not even telling anyone. And it wasn't even just one developer leaving. It was the whole bunch. I have a feeling that they're not ever going to come back, and when the domain expires and the site goes offline this year, that'll be the end of FABC, as much as I hate to say it...

The point is nothing is the same for long. Things change. That's why I made my Eras of Pixie Hollow video. What I'm hoping is the developers would come back or maybe new people would start working on this site and making it thrive again. Or maybe WTP will take over. At least I'm grateful we got the realm meadows. I don't think WTP will use them but I'm hoping it'll have six fairy slots and all the talents we have today. It wasn't in the OG Pixie Hollow, but it should've added this stuff. There should be more talent skills too.

I have no doubt something will change. I have no doubt things will eventually get better because they always do. Things change for better and for worse. My personal guess is that the devs are so busy with real mainland jobs that thinking about this site would just stress them out. They are young adults after all. I wouldn't get mad at them. Real life can be hard. But what's important is that we keep the Pixie Hollow community alive. And we should enjoy our mainland lives as well.

I feel like the important thing is that the community is kept alive. While I'd love for there to be an actual Hollow (and I'm sure there will be in some way with WTP going on), it's the posts and the videos that keep me happy. I just want people to see them.

Because I dislike negativity, I'd like to mention that even though I'd compare the Empty Era (April 2019 to now) to the Dark Era (late 2015 to May 2016 when the community really died), at least there's still something to fly around in though it's not much. For me, the existence of the new meadows is enough. And hey, I'm posting fairy videos. I honestly doubt they abandoned the site on purpose. Maybe they're focused on something else or something and forgot about it. It could be lower on the priority list. It would be better if they gave occasional updates though.

You're very brave imo for posting this! ❤️ I was wondering when someone would bring this up. I had hope until recently now that I know they're not responding to questions.... They could at least tell us they wouldn't be updating. If they're working on it and it's just taking time, tell us! I don't mind waiting if I know something will happen. I get life happens. I respect and admire the task they took on but it is a huge one! If they need help, I'll try my best. I don't mind coming onto the forums to keep interacting with my friends and others. However, I joined mainly to play and to fly again. To bring back and make more memories. Like many others I'm sure did. My heart breaks if FairyABC is abandoned. I agree with Pandora, it was rude!

thank you for publicly posting about this; i believe it's been on all of our minds for months now. it's completely understandable to be too busy in real life to work on this site daily, as it's definitely a big task to handle, but i think we can all agree that we would appreciate updates or notices.
some, including myself, have also been concerned as to when the site's domain will expire, which is impending this year. only a dev would be able to handle that situation with the money that the community has donated in the past. we can only be optimistic that at least one dev will return to renew the domain before it's too late.
throughout the devs' absences, the site's presence has definitely become smaller; this could be due to many factors, including the lack of maintenance on the game + forum. the game has stopped working on the majority of browsers (chrome, firefox, etc.), resulting in us having to switch quite frequently. this is a primary issue that i hope is resolved.
however, our active members still have a love for this community, and hopefully in the future, the site can be running regularly again (: i encourage everyone to maintain positivity while the devs are gone. thank you again for this thread; it was well needed !
