POSTING POINTS • 1 post = 1 point
• 1 post on someone's family thread/board = 2 points
• 1 post on someone's diary thread/off topic life post = 2 points
• 1 post in an event area (when applicable) = 2 points
• 1 update (with a banner/bunch of photos) in your own family thread/board = 3 points

friends!! our first event commootee went so successfully and i am SO happy to say that we are going to be doing commootee-run events from now on!
our next event isn't for a couple of months (i'm looking at early october for it), however we're going to be trying something totally new, and i'd like to start planning it early as there are going to be a couple different parts to it and the sooner we can start the better!
i'd love to tell you more about this event, but it's TOP SECRET. no spoilers!!! all i can say though is that if you love halloween, hexing really cool/potentially creepy things, and plot twists ;) this event is for you. i'm especially looking for baby hexers for this, particularly ones who know how to hex using the age slider.
if you are interested in participating in the commootee for this event (and i promise you are) please reply to this post and let us know which job you would like!
This post marks the start of Adoption Weekend, a full weekend dedicated to hexing babyz and posting adoptions! Dig out any old babyz that haven't found homes yet and post them today, or hex an entirely new baby to post!
Everyone who posts an adoption thread this weekend will earn 70 caps.
Those who hex a brand new baby specifically for this weekend will earn 90 caps.
Those who adopt one or more babyz who were originally posted this weekend will earn 50 caps.
Collect caps in the transactions thread once qualifications have been met.
OTQ ("of the quarter") awards are special spotlight awards that a member or hexed item can be nominated to win for various categories each quarter. these spotlights are a bit of an honor on milk and are one of the ways we can acknowledge and thank our members for all the great participation and effort put in to making milk what it is!
during the nomination period, members will send in their nominations for each category. at the end of the quarter, members vote on their favorites and the winners receive a special award which is proudly displayed on the "quarterly spotlight" tab in our forum informootion table at the top of the forum. winners are also able to collect a badge for each category that they win.
OTQ nominations are accepted all throughout the quarterly period. so, if something is hexed that you just really love, or you notice someone being really helpful or participating a lot, or you've been seeing a certain baby around a lot and you're really enjoying them, you can submit that instantly as your nomination for the respective category and then not have to worry about trying to remember it later!
third quarter nominations are now open! click here to see the list of nomination categories. all nominations and should be sent to the Mooderator account. just please remember to put the quarter in your PM subject (eg. "third quarter nomination") so we can keep everything organized!
GUESS WHO FORGOT TO POST THE FIRST THEME WEEKEND? me, it was me.
buuuut that's okay, we're gonna do it anyway! it shall be mootique sunday and monday!
This post marks the start of Mootique Weekend, a full weekend dedicated to updating and buying from mootiques!
Everyone who puts up something new in their mootique this weekend will earn 80 caps.
Everyone who buys at least 1 set or item from the mootiques this weekend will earn 70 caps.
If you purchase 3 or more sets from mootiques this weekend, you will earn a special voucher for one free item or set from any active mootique!
Collect caps in the transactions thread, and reply to this post to let us know if you qualify for the voucher.
some of you may have noticed the lil empty board in the shopping district area and wondered what it was. i'm excited to introduce this brand new area, just for milkers to post hexed items that are 100% free for others to download.
these items might be old mootique items that you no longer wish to sell for caps, or items you have made specifically to offer for free.
these thrift shops will run like mootiques except they do not need to be updated consistently and will remain here for as long as the download links work! however you may feel free to update yours as often as you like!
the july calendar of events is now available! this monthly calendar posting got a bit delayed since it was our first time putting on a commootee-run event so i wasn't quite sure when we would finish getting it ready and be able to put it up, so i didn't want to mark down an incorrect date in the calendar. now i've got a bit of a basis for that so future calendars should go up more promptly again!
you can find the monthly calendar by clicking the link on the right, or by going to the moosflash board.
welcome to milk's birthdayversary party! we're calling it a "birthdayversary" because not only did milk turn 13 years old this year, but this is also the year our beloved babyz game turns 20 years old!! that's a LONG time for any game or community to stick around, and i think we're all so glad that it did.
so it's time to PARTY!! we chose to celebrate with an ice cream party, because ice cream is yummy and perfect for celebrations, especially summertime ones! so what are you waiting for? come on in, grab a scoop, and join one of our fun party or throwback games!!
voting for our "of the quarter" awards is now live! vote for your favorites who stood out the most to you during the second quarter, which spanned from april 1st until june 30th, 2019!
click here to see all of the nominations and cast your vote!
welcome to the third quarter at milk! typically, whenever we begin a new quarter at milk, our quarterly activities all refresh for new rounds. we didn't have those activities running in the second quarter because of all the changes, so we're relaunching everything now!
today we have opened our quarterly posting contest and our quarterly hexing contest for entering! those contests will run all quarter long until september 30, 2019. this is our first time running a quarterly hexing contest in about two years and we're really looking forward to all the great entries we'll get. meanwhile, our posting contest is offering an extra special reward for its winner as an attempt to boost activity across the forum!
this is also the time to get your OTQ nominations in if you haven't yet! the nominations have been open for the last two months, so hopefully you've had time to make your nominee decisions!
i had promised to have more updates soon and today i come bearing TWO exciting new announcements! we have begun trying to change up the way we do a few things here in order to make more of an effort to include the members (aka YOU GUYS) in what goes on at milk!
the first way we have done this is by introducing event commootees for planning and putting on our forumwide events and theme days. members who are interested in a particular event will be able to sign up to help plan, hex, and post activities! our next upcoming event is going to be the birthdayversary ice cream party event for milk's birthday/the 20th anniversary of babyz. if you would like to see more details or sign up to be part of the event commootee for this event you can click here!
we are also trying to put more focus on the non-babyz aspects of our community! to further that effort, we are hoping to hire a few board moo-nagers who are passionate about some of our off-topic subjects (gaming, cooking, entertainment, art, collecting, etc) to help manage those boards and post some occasional activities/discussions to keep them active and fun! if you are interested in finding out more about becoming a board moo-nager, you can click here.
we really love our little milk family and we think you guys have amazing ideas and suggestions. we think opening the community to more member involvement will really improve the overall forum experience!
hi friends and welcome to the next bit in a whole series of big changes coming to the forum! some of you have already noticed i've been moving boards around and tidying up a bit, and in the next few weeks, we'll be working on the rest of the changes we have in store!
so at the top of the forum on the main page (you know... where you're reading this), you can now see our brand new shiny welcome and news table! ooooooh, aaaah. this table is the new home to any and all forum updates, big or small! the table is tabbed, so you can switch between the welcome/forum information tab and the newest updates tab! there's also a little bitty sidebar on it for the quarterly activities and "right now" kind of stuff!
our new table has also freed up some room on our left sidebar, so i have used that space for some fancy new navigational links! these are just easy quick links to all the areas of the forum that get used the most.
we should have more updates to fill up our pretty new table soon so keep an eye out!!
(Previously known as the Convenience Store)
This board houses offers and requests for goods and services. Photoshoots, graphics requests, clothing requests, and everything of that nature! Hexie requests will remain in Adoption Center.
