***UPDATE EDIT 5*** 2:17pm We have now been in communication with Linden Lab who has mobilized to to help us recover. As you may already know, food is now available on the Marketplace at out storefront here:

Two avatars appeared today, both impersonating our Asset Manager whose name is Meeroos Resident (Many of you know her, she is, in fact, multiple people, sometimes even me!)

Well, the two avatars impersonating her, named appropriately:

Meer00s Resident and Meero0s Resident.

managed to come to the store where the build permission is off, and they built invisible mock vendors to place over the authentic ones in order to intercept payments made to them. At this point, we have no idea how they managed to build an object on a no build sim. We are investigating it.

Game Exploits & More

So since the beginning of July, we were tipped off to a player who had been committing a series of exploits with the Meeroos. We had been conducting a stealth investigation, monitoring activity, watching the hands that Meeroos originating from this player passed through, who they were passed too, and how frequently they were committing the action. We were also able to tell who else connect to this exploit ring were conducting this behavior.

The Auto Petter


We've been made aware of an Auto Petter currently on the marketplace created by a resident. While amazingly creative residents have made companion tools for the Meeroos in the past, the recently released Auto Petter is the first one that has broken our Terms of Service to achieve it's function. Unfortunately, for the object to have been created, our Official Meeroo HUD had to be disassembled and the scripts removed and repurposed entirely in a new object.

Status of the game!

Buckle in friends, I have lots to report this morning! I'd like to begin by thanking all of you who have cared enough to share with us your thoughts, concerns, experiences and suggestions both here on the blog and on the forums. You are indeed helping shape the game, and as stated from day one, we're always listening... especially to those of you who leave constructive critical feedback!

Now onto the good stuff.

The Roadmap

Many of you frequent readers already know about initial things coming soon, such as the Primbie Bird and the highly anticipated Mee-Pet option. I wanted to spend some time with you this morning to discuss some other plans on our roadmap so that you know the direction the game is headed in. We will see new editions and improvements coming to World Of Meeroos and internally we have a roadmap of milestones.

"The Primbie Bird Flew to and fro
eyes to the ground
looking for glow.
The Primbie Bird hunted best
close to the ground
far from her nest.
The Primbie Birds loved nothing more
than to sing with joy
from the forest floor."
-Poem from the Anthropologists journal.

This ink had all but vanished, worn with time. It took considerable efforts to decipher some broken text on the back on page 225 of the Anthropologists Journal, but thanks to some dedicated eyes, we were able to determine what it said.

Greetings everyone! It's been awhile since my last update so it's time to catch you up on our ongoings at the studio!

First some dev notes straight from the dev desk:

Fellowship Improvement

Today we're launching a small improvement to the Fellowship structure. It is now possible to remove a player from a fellowship. Please read below so you know how it works!

Removing Players from Fellowships

Fellowship founders who bring up their fellowship's web page will see a new dialog!

At the bottom of the player listing is an option that will let them remove a player from their fellowship.

Fos Dagger is the first player to find themselves in the community spotlight!

Fos is a die-hard Meeroo Parent who has documented his efforts on his blog:

We've avid Readers of Fos's (And many others) blog, and we're increasing surprised at just how close Fos is to understanding so much, including our generational timeline! Complete with beautiful pictures and interesting thought streams, the immensely talented Fos shares his speculations on everything from breeding to marketplace activity.
