Account exists but nothing works

Medium

Obviously, my account exists! I can login and post and see my pets. I haven’t been on here for maybe 9 years, but my profile is still here. However, the play page doesn’t load, and I get ‘mad kitty error’ on most other pages – breed, account, messages etc.

I sent a help request in over a month ago to no avail. There was no reply and now that webpage where my request sits is broken and comes up with a thing saying the site no longers exists.

Any thoughts?

If you use Chrome, look at the top left of your browser bar. Click on the circled i A drop down box will open then look where it says ,“flash” to the right you will see where it says,“allow” click on that. Another drop box will open and click on where it says allow, click on allow and NOT defaut. Then click on the little i with the circle around it again. another drop box will drop down. Click on the box that says reload. You will have to do this each time Chrome updates.

Foopets WAS down for 2 days but came back up on Sunday 12/15. No one could log into the game and the support for Foopets also was non existent. Message I got was something to do with DSN, whatever that is,

Medium

I didn’t get it back until Monday.

I heard a rumor/read somewhere that FooPets as a website is not doing well and will be shutting down in early 2020. Does anybody know if this is true? I love this site/game and all of my pets that I have been taking care of, some for the last 10 years. I know it’s just a game, but I am someone who is truly invested in it, and look forward to taking care of my pets every day. I’d Truly hate to see it go.

Does anybody have any info on the validity of this rumor about the site shutting down?

Thanks for any help/insight, and happy holidays all!

Possibly this rumor you heard is because of flash being discontinued. The validity of Foo shutting down is not true at this point in time.

Medium

If they don’t convert the game to not use flash then we will lose the ability to play with the foos and play the games. But as far as the game actually ending I’m guessing is a more of a if they game stops making money type thing. But with flash ending and not being able to play with the foos and stuff, it very well could lose even more player support.

Medium

Even without Flash, tending the Foos can be done with the mobile page I would think.

Thanks everyone for all the insights. Wow, I had no idea that flash support was ending. With so many videos and such using flash across the web, what’s going to Take its place? Seems like flash support ending would be a big blow for online media, unless there was something better and more secure to come along.

Anyway, thanks again to all!

Also, I’m getting a 404 Website not found type error Quite frequently, almost on a daily basis. Is this happening to everyone else, too?

Thanks again.

HTML5 is what is taking Flash’s place in a lot of cases. This had been coming on for years. 2017 was the announcement but the move away from Flash started quite a while ago. Any site that claims it didn’t know or is not prepared is flat out lying about it. The main reason it is going bye bye is because it is not mobile friendly. Apple decided a long time ago not to bother with Flash and that was the first in a long series of death knells. There are plenty of tools out there to use to convert Flash to HTML5. Laziness is the only reason not to bother.

Medium

Yes, thanks for the help and info. Glad to hear that there is something that should be, theoretically, better than flash, particularly for mobile. I’ve heard of HTML five, but didn’t know that that was what was replacing flash.

Also, is anyone else getting the 400 for website not found error? I have been getting it often on for about the last week and a half, and it makes it impossible to do anything on the site.

Thanks again for help here.

Medium

Sorry, I meant to say that it’s impossible to do anything on the site, until the website shows up as normal again.

Thanks.

@Jediwolf21~ The site was down over the weekend a bit ago but it is up now and not throwing any errors that I am aware of.

Medium

Site seems to be OK now but I feel a bit wary. Is Foopets planning on staying with us or not???

As far as I know foo, is not going anywhere…Think positive thoughts. :)

Thanks all for the input. I don’t know if this is an isolated case with me getting the 404 not found website error, but I am getting it on a pretty much daily basis. Periodically checking on my mobile devices, I hadn’t been able to do anything on the site for about two days, until just now when I was surprised to notice that it seemed to be up at the moment. Unfortunately, I don’t have any access to a regular PC at this time, so I’m strictly using an iPhone and iPad And accessing the desktop version of the website. I’m also able to access the play pages on the desktop website using a flash browser app that I have, but I’m not sure what will happen with this app once flash capability has been completely removed.

I’m just curious to know if anyone else is experiencing the 404 not found website error, as well. Hope it isn’t just me, LOL.

Thanks to everyone again.

Flash seems okay, thanks! That tip got the play page working but I still get errors on a bunch of pages for who knows what reason @Remsie
