02-7-13 Forum Shutdown and Website status - Eldar Storm
I have been avoiding this for a while, but I am shutting down the L2Pets Forums. The forums have been dead for the past year with only Spammers posting. With no real activity and with all my admins and mods being gone there seems little point to maintaining the forums.

The site will remain for a while, but eventually I will probably shut it down as well. I had hoped to get some admin support and convert the site to a wiki format so that its info could be community driven.

I hate that it has come to this, but with the direction Lineage 2 has gone, it does seem inevitable. Me and most of the people I knew have stopped playing the game for a while now for one reason or another.

If anyone needs to contact me, you can through my main site. http://radioactivecricket.com

04-25-11 Forums Upgrade - Eldar Storm
The forums have not been upgraded to the most currect version of PHPBB3. I was going to wait until I had the new template up for it, but with all the spam, I figured I would skip the new template and update it now.

I may also be upgrading the main site to Wordpress to make updates and such easier.

The main L2Pets site will be up and down this weekend as I upload and configure the changes to the site.
And yes the forums will be brought back up as well :)

The bad news is, the firums will be brought up fresh and clean, so everyone who registered before will have to again and all the old data is gone. I will be working on the corrupted data in my spare time and will upload this as I have it available.

Another new thing you will notice t about the site is there will be new GFX and a new template for the forums.

12-3-06 New Email Update - Eldar Storm
After further investigation the hacker had not gotten a hold of the database, but had managed to access the Admin mass email function and had sent out the email that way.

12-3-06 Forum Status and About the Email - Eldar Storm
It would seem that the person who hacked the site got a hold of the email list from the database as well. I am sorry that this email was sent. I have sent a email myself apologizing for the “Lamer” email. I am truly sorry that the guy was able to get to the emails and was able to send that.
I have wiped the Forum database to remove any corrupted entries and have brought the forums down completely until the new version is put in place.

I will not let this put a end to this site and all the hard work everyone has put into it.

11-22-06 Forums down till further notice. - Eldar Storm
Forums have been hacked and are down till further notice. Also my backup may have been lost as well. It may take a while to get everything back up.

Also due to this the main site update that I have been working on has now been put on hold till further notice.

If you have anything to add to this or need to get in touch with me I can be contacted at eldarstorm@l2pets.com or you can MSN me, my handle is Eldar, search for me using eldarstorm@hotmail.com

As far as the patch notes we don't, as of yet, have a fully translated version of it. Part of this is due to the size of the patch notes itself.

01-08-06 C4 Hits PTS! - Eldar Storm
C4 has now hit the PTS (Public Test Server) and is ready for download and login.

Here is a quote from MiykaelQA on the L2 Forums:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
C4 on the PTS is ready to go.

* We currently plan on a one time bump up of characters to a very high level this week. During this same boost, we will also be giving characters an assortment of useful items. These boosts will only affect the highest level character created on each account. If there are 2 equal level characters the one with the highest XP amount will be affected.
* Helper cats will also be appearing this week to help with 2nd class transfers, clan creation and level up, and higher level items.
* PTS rates for the duration of Chronicle 4 testing will be 10x experience, 10x SP, and 10x drops and adena.

We encourage everyone to patch up, login and create a character by Wednesday Jan 11, especially those of you who completed your first class transfer prior to the wipe announcement and before I made my 2nd post.

Please report any bugs you may encounter during testing here in this forum as well as through http://support.lineage2.com.

Thank you for your interest in testing Chronicle 4 on the PTS.

Big news, today is the 1 year mark for the site. We have grown a lot and now have well over 500 members. And with today I have added the new graphics to the site that I have been working on. I have also added the Wolf Quest to the Guides section and am working on the Hatchling quest.
I am still updating the information on the Info section to get it up to standards with C3. Post all information you wish to have on the page on the Forums as well as anything that may be incorrect.

The Admin tool I have planned to add will have to wait a little but, I seem to have come across a bug and will have to work it out before I add it. With the Admin tool screenshots will be added to the page as well.

In another bit of news, Lord Liberty has returned to the site and has resumed the role of Site Moderator. LL along with Shaunrah, are both doing a great job.

4-12-05 C3 - Still Waiting - Eldar Storm
No C3 PTS today, they have had some corrupted file problems after they got the update server problem fixed. They hope to have it up and running tomarow. Let us continue to have our fingers crossed.
During all of this I have been impressed on how well they have been keeping up up to date on what is going on.

4-11-05 C3 Delay for PTS - Eldar Storm
As you have noticed the PTS still has not come back up. They are having some problems with the update server and are trying to resolve it. The PTS forums indicate it "should" be the beginning of this week. Lets keep our fingers crossed.

Also in other news, I have been working on a Admin function for the webpage to allow moderators to post news on thier own. I am also hoping to expand it to cover more of the site as well.

9-28-04 Food & Rules - Eldar Storm
I have updated the Feeding section of the Info page and added a Rules/Tips section to it as well. Thanks to everyone who has already put forth information.
During my researching with my pets on food consumption rate I have discovered a big difference in the Twilight Hatchling. Many people know that 1 unit = 100% Food, but its consumption rate is 8-10% a minute while all other pets are around 2%. See Feeding section for more info.

9-26-04 New Beginning - Eldar Storm
After having spent alot of time searching forums and sites for good info on pets for L2, I have decided to create this site. If anyone wants to help out with giving me info email me at l2pets@charter.net. I will try to fill in the holes as I get the information.
