Bunny Bytes Newsletter 8.20.10

Greetings Bunny Friends! Well, there are quite a few things to cover in this edition of Bunny Bytes, so let’s “hop” right in shall we?

First, I’d like to say thank you to all of the bunny owners who have exhibited great patience with us over the past month or so. We are very grateful for your support. For those who have been frustrated, we truly understand your position and we want to apologize. We understand that we borked it good. There’s no doubt that we have stumbled a bit, made some mistakes and frankly had a pretty spectacular episode of growing pains.

Malk and I have clearly seen that we need more quality people on board to help us keep Ozimals working as it should be and also to help develop some of the cool ideas we have planned for the bunnies plus other plans that have been stuck in development. There reaches a point where no matter how dedicated you are, one person (or two, or even three people) simply cannot do it all. We’ve taken the step toward hiring an expert in project management and quality control to help us restructure how we do things as a company. There are some big changes coming for Ozimals, changes that will benefit the people that matter the most to us – our customers.

At the Second Life Community Convention we made some great contacts that will really help us get to the next level in product stability and support. Our goal is to keep Ozimals at the quality level that you have come to expect from us. We will do our best to make that happen as quickly as possible!

On that note, Ozimals is hiring! We need people who are interested in being greeters in the store and also customer service representatives *especially* during the Euro time periods. We will be posting a link to a web application form early next week for interested residents to apply. If you love bunnies, have time to devote to a job in SL and think you would be well suited for a position with us, keep an eye out for that link and submit an application!

The Bunnybury Price List is on the forum now at this link. Please take a look and give us your thoughts and any final suggestions on the forum thread: http://forums.ozimals.com/showthread.php?tid=10002

Please note that this is *just* the initial set of Bunnybury items and there will be a constant flow of new goodies that you can purchase with the reward coins.

The Bunnybury system is completed; all that is remaining is the testing of the vendors. The vendor system has been alpha tested and will be going into beta sometime next week. Once the vendors have been fully beta tested and any bugs found fixed, the program will launch. Our goal is the middle of next month at the latest, but preferably earlier.

The Food Reward Vendors are also completed and have been alpha tested. We are looking for people interested in beta testing these vendors now; please file a ticket using the “Beta Test Application” subject if you are interested in helping us test these. (Note: this is just testing the vendors themselves and they will be delivering empty prims, not actual food – sorry!)

Ozimals Orientation and Ozimals University (OzU) are complete and should have their grand opening the second week in September. We think this will go a long way towards helping new people – but bunny owners can also probably learn a thing or two from going as well Wink You will get free gifts just for going through the Orientation and there will be diplomas from the University! If you are interested in being an Instructor for OzU, please file a ticket using the “OzU Instructor Application” subject and Flitter Moonwing will contact you with more information.

SocialBun is in the last phase of alpha testing and we will be setting up a web application form for beta testers. We will send a notice with the link to the form early next week along with the job application link.

Keep watching for a notice early next week for a Flickr contest organized by Flitter Moonwing and Elizabeth Tinsley with some really nifty prizes!

Much <3 from your Ozimals Team
