We’ve tracked down another former Fantage graphical artist Christina Nicodema. She worked at Fantage from August 2009 to June 2010. She designed various things including including homes and stickers. She also designed some pets. Some of them were used and some weren’t. Here they are:
I really like the green one on the left side. Comment below which is your favorite!
Holiday Pets were released in 2012 across the year, appearing for different events. At each event you could get a special holiday pet. Holiday pets still occur for purchase at special events throughout every year. For Spring there was Springy, Easter there was Cotton, Summer there was Rosie, Thanksgiving there was Tom Tom, and Christmas there was Blizzy. You can buy these pets in an egg or with a magic code. These pets are great for pet games too, they fly really well in Wild Slinger. If you collected all the pets you got a variety of rewards including two trophies for your home and a medal.

So it’s been 10 months since MyMall got it’s rules update. Now MyMall has changed again. This time it’s been a huge update. Kiosks are gone. Permissions as we know them are gone. But now we have Tokens for selling, and a new way to buy. There’s an extra seating area. The best news is you no longer see items from the opposite gender that you can’t buy (I’ve been waiting for this for about a year). Anyway I’ll break things down.
Kiosks are gone, and so are all the floors and rooms in MyMall. This means no searching through 50 Floors, A to G in every kiosk (for those who don’t want to do the math that was 3500 kiosks with a maximum total of 35000 items) for that one item you want.
Search is the new way to buy. You can now buy items by searching for them, and then clicking buy on the item you want. There’s now a way to search for items by color and/or type, or you can search for everything. They’ve finally made it so only things you can buy show up. If you’re a boy, you won’t see any girl items (except boards), and if you’re a girl, you won’t see any boy items (except boards). There’s a button to sell items with tokens.
Selling has changed. Permissions are gone, but have been replaced by tokens. When you sell an item, the minimum price is usually 1000 Gold. However, you can post your item at your own price, each item will be listed by price and type such as starred or gold item. After 24 hours if the item has not sold it will be removed and you will need another token to post another item.
Tokens allow you to post an item for 24 hours. Members can buy Tokens which cost 100 Gold each, and there are no discounts for buying multiples. The good news is, unlike permissions, you can buy Tokens and they will stay in your inventory forever until you use them. If permission was bought prior to the update they will be converted to tokens. For example, if you bought 24 hours of permission, every 4 hours you will receive 1 Token up to a total of 6 tokens for the 24 hour permission.
Buying items has changed too. When you search for and find the item you want, you can no longer choose who you buy it from. You just have to pay the price that shows up for the item. This feature makes it unable to trade among users or choose who buys items. It is a more fair playing field.
Why the update?, You ask.
Well this fixes a lot of the problems Fantage was having. Trading is pretty much impossible now. This means that scamming through trades is pretty much impossible.
There are two reasons why Fantage does not like trading. Trading means people getting scammed. Fantage doesn’t want their community upset. Scamming shouldn’t even occur in a game for kids. With all the scamming Fantage probably gets overrun with calls and emails of people who are upset. This means that Fantage can’t focus on improving the game. Secondly trading costs Fantage money. As I’ve said before, running Fantage is not cheap, servers and staff are expensive. When players are trading, they’re not using lots of Gold which Fantage sells. If people aren’t buying gold, Fantage’s only form of income is Premium Membership, and a few little adverts. Premium member prices were significantly dropped making a 1 month membership just $3.99 per month.
