Default Unanswered: babv closing ?

Why is babv closing i know they its because teens and kids say they like more game or app based stuff but we didn't even want that.

also we will loose everything we have right ?

is there a chance they wont close it ?

It's mostly because they'd rather focus on making new apps, I guess.

Yes, we'll be losing everything as far as we know. I recommend taking screenshots of your items if you want to remember how everything looked and what you had.

I think the Play section they have now is what's going to be there after BV closes (minus BV of course).

I don't think there's really a lot that we can do to save it now. They seem to have made up their minds. :\

Bearville is up until the end of March.
I think there is no chance they won't close it. I wrote to them already, and others did, too.
You can write to them, and tell them you are sad, so tehy know it was not a good decision, but I guess the decision is made.

To add insult to injury, you don't get your items transferred! My parents spent thousands of pounds when I was younger on build-a-bear, including an amazing party I had. For all of this to be gone, I'm ashamed of Build-A-Bearville for doing this. My cub condo, my collections, my credits that I have been saving up! All to go to waste...

On the night before it closes, I'm going to log on and stay logged on to see what happens. Will there be some sort of 'if you log in before the night it closes you can stay logged on?' Idk..

Staying logged on is a good idea...although you will have to move around every ten minutes or else you will get logged off.

This is right, Vanessa, good point!. Also I think the website will go offline because they will have cancelled it and therefore, it will just be gone, I guess. But we can still try.

My cub condo, my collections, my credits that I have been saving up! All to go to waste...

NeonSmiley, these are exactly my thoughts...

Well, don't put your hopes up too high, it won't be anything like bearville. No virtual world.

I'm pretty sure the front page of BABV tells you that they are remaking BABV...? The "orignal" BABV hasn't been updated since 2013 (or 2012?), and barley and. We're lucky they aren't "deleting" all of BABV. We also don't know how the new BABV is going to look like, so it's an adventure, technically!
