Default Bearville to be phased out by the end of 2014

Yup, the title is true. BV is confirmed to be phased out by the end of 2014, according to some friends of mine that work at BABW.
The main reason is money, since it's very expensive to keep it up and numbers of players have gone down a lot, which is no surprise due to the lack of updates in past months.

It's sad to see BV go, even though I don't play anymore. It was a big part of my life for about 6 years now.

Hopefully we still have a bit of time left and we can all enjoy BV until then.

I heard about this from another friend two weeks ago, so I emailed vwhelp, asking them, and here are their responses:

Hi there SarahChocolate65!

We did not receive information like that from our Bear Headquarters. That
is an invalid, fake/wrong information from someone/somewhere.

Please feel free to write me back at vwhelp@buildabear.com if you have
other questions or concerns.

Have a Bearrific day!

Bear Hugs,
Janette CyBearPal

Hi there SarahChocolate65!

I am beary glad that you're having a pawsome time playing in Bearville.
Your Bearville family appreciates the pawsitive feedback. We enjoyed
creating Bearville and find it very rewarding to hear your stories,
thoughts, and experiences. In fact, we forward all your feedback and
suggestions right back to Bear Headquarters!

If Bearville is closing, our Bear Headquarters will surely inform all of us
about it. At this time, there is no way it is closing. So, keep enjoying
Bearville! Camp Happy Heart has just started, make sure you signed up at
the Waterfall cabin.

Thank you again and enjoy!

Bear Hugs,
Janette CyBearPal

I don't know what's going on at the moment now. I really don't want it to close. I still go on and play every single day.

I enjoy bearville, and I used to log on just about everyday. But, for the past couple of months, I haven't gone on bearville very often. I have enjoyed it, but they don't really add anything new to keep me coming back. As much as I would miss it, it doesn't surprise me if one day bearville was to close.

That's sad, even though I don't play it anymore. It has been a big part of my life and I'm sure other people would enjoy play it. I thought BABW made tones of money from BABV.

It doesn't really surprise me, to be perfectly honest... ^^;
I'll miss it, though.

What on Earth happened to 'Moshi Monsters', too?!
That seems to have completely disappeared.

I guess everything good must come to an end eventually I have so many good memories there! I'll miss it a lot.

I hope this is NOT true... I go on Bearville almost every day. I would miss it so much if they closed it down.
However, they should really repair their log-in button. this is really annoying.

Well, I guess all we can do is wait and see. I haven't been on in ages, but I am getting on now. It'll be sad if it goes.
