No

Why was the email presented as if it's something to be excited about, like seriously? I don't understand why their closing it, I'm sure BABV made BABW a lot of money.

I agree. The things is, kids these days are surrounded by technology and it could be argued that they're 'growing up too fast' as well (just look at the 8/9 year olds on Instagram lol). They're more likely to ask for, say, a smartphone for Christmas or their birthday than a Build-a-Bear.

If they had made actual, better improvements to Bearville or promoted it a bit more then maybe the small number of children who do still ask for bears would be interested in joining the site. If I had only heard of BABW in the last couple of years then I probably wouldn't have joined BV to be fair, or even heard of it.

Well, I guess that is why BAB will tear down bearville for people to play their games, the games that were worse 7 years ago. To be honest, kids these days are surrounded by influences that are not generally bad, but could make the future worse, I even remember the times when snake is the only game on a phone, or Windows Xp was dominant in computers

I was one of the first people on bearville, when the old bearville was still there to promote the new one. It was nice, and then many improvements came, and then it became better. Frankly, but what Sharon wants is to tear down Maxine's hard work for 7 years.

I don't understand how they think it'll be more popular, if anything it'll get worse.

I do, it was still better than the play website, or in other words, the cheap website that noone will play with I guess..

We should all not play on the new site in protest.

I am sure that I will NEVER play on there.

I figured it was because people whose VIB memberships go on for longer than 1st April might claim (part of their) money back? You should try that. bad enough you did not get a VIB present any longer.

I'm at least going to check out Play and see how it is. Right now, it's pathetic. I probably won't play on it. -_-

The simple fact that there will be no accounts says a lot about this "new bearville"...

Interestingly enough, I tried one game on the Play website yesterday. When I was finished, I was asked if I wanted to transfer BearBills to my Bearville account. weird
