End of Beta: Introducing the Tattered World!

Today's update is rather visibly a huge one: we're officially leaving beta!

We've picked out a whole new look for the site, including a name change to the Tattered World. Though characters will still refer to the Tatters as the Tattered Weave, our domain name and merchandise will be updating to the Tattered World from now on. Our social media accounts will be following suit on the name change, with the old tatteredweave accounts pointing to the new name.

We've placed an automatic redirect on the old tatteredweave.com URL to our new URL at thetatteredworld.com - though this redirect will stick around for many months, please update your bookmarks for the future!

This domain name change may cause some technical issues while we transfer everything over, but should be resolved within a couple days at most. If you run into any problems, please report them in the Technical Support Forum!

For example, the games have our URL hard-coded into them, so I am not sure they will work right away with the change. However, the good news is that this URL update comes with a fantastic perk: we've decided to permanently increase Shard earnings from games to approximately twice the amount it was during beta! Wahoo!

Remember that these changes may take a day or two to reflect on your account, especially as we work through any issues that may arise due to such a big change. While you wait, let us know what you think of our new color scheme to match the new logo! Do you like the purple and gold? Hate it? Leave any feedback in this thread if you have it, though I have more good news on the styling front: plans are in place to add a free dark theme to the site by the end of 2019! We're also working on a fun potential feature that would allow users to spend Gems for customized themes as well.

To keep the hype train rolling, we've got two upcoming conventions where you can meet us in person: Otakon and Gencon 2019!

Otakon 2019 is happening July 26-28 and will feature a fully themed Tattered World promotional booth, located on the pro row of Artist Alley. We'll have free merch to hand out to anyone with an account or willing to sign up at the con, as well as a whole weekend of promo codes going on for anyone who can't make it to the con! Come by to say hello to Myth, Club, Leslie, and me!

Gencon 2019 is happening August 1-4 and we will be in the Author's Avenue to promote Mythmaker's other project, the webcomic Snow by Night. Come by to say hello to Myth and Steph! This may be your last chance to meet & greet our dear Steph at a convention for Mythmakers, as she will be stepping down from the position of Art Director due to health concerns. I'll let her fill you in on her farewell below. Even if you can't make it out to a convention, please give her all the warm wishes she deserves for helping to make Tattered World the beautiful site it is today!

I’ve got a pretty big announcement of mine own-- I’m officially stepping down from Art Director and leaving the Tattered World team. It’s a sad departure, I adore the admins, artists, and users I worked with, but I’ve run into a lot of health issues that require me to make a big career shift.

The short version of my health issues is that I’ve been struggling with a lot of pain in my hands and wrists (most likely from arthritis), but it makes not only drawing, but any sort of work at a keyboard painful. If you’re curious for the full story, I’ve posted it all over on twitter.

But I also want to take a moment to really emphasize, especially to all the up and coming artists on TW: taking care of your hands and health is incredibly important. I have some genetics playing against me, but at the end of the day, I spent too many straight hours drawing at the computer and it’s ended a career I dreamed about far too early.

All the advice you’ve been told about stretching and taking breaks and walking around is very real. So is eating healthy, drinking water, and exercising. I know it’s hard to imagine it’s helping and even harder to do because that’s where I was even just a couple years ago, but it only took a few months for problems that I could’ve prevented to hit me in full force. I first started experiencing difficulties when I was 26, and they escalated around when I turned 29. I’m not old. Long hours typing and drawing are a real health hazard if you’re not taking care of yourself.

If I can leave the folks at this site with anything it’s this: respect and treat your body with care because it’s worth it. It’s precious and needs your help, but if you take care of it, it’ll take you to your dreams and beyond, and that little extra self-care will really change your entire life.

Now, all of that said, I have other things to look forward to. I’m getting involved in gardening and horticulture, as well as going back to school so I can get the credentials I need to teach art in universities! This is all things I planned on doing when I was closer to 60, but hey, time for an early start, right?

The love in the Tattered World community is very real. I feel so proud to be part of such an amazing project with such a great family. I have tons of great memories as well as several friends that’ll stay with me forever!

If you’re ever looking for me, you can always find me on twitter at @StephStober!

Cheers to everyone, and I’ll miss you guys!

Steph, thank you so much for all the work and love you put into this site. I've known about your hands for a bit so I'm not entirely surprised, but it's still a little sad to see you go. That said I know you'll make a great teacher! And of course I'll still be following you on Twitter.

And it hardly needs to be said, but you know I love this purple theme~

Oh man, mild confusion and shock when I opened up the site! Purple is a little intense, but I'll see if I adjust!

Steph, I wish you the best in your new career/life path. It's so hard to deal with health issues forcing you out of something you love, but it sounds like you've got some great plans for the future! Good luck with everything!


Being out of beta is terribly exciting! Congrats!!!
I like the new logo and name, even though I know it's gonna take me a while to remember the new name.

I wasnt around long enough to know Steph but I wish you the best for the future!

I love the new site color scheme! I do have one complaint/suggestion: the purple is a bit too saturated for my tastes. The bright purple seems to be fighting a lot with the negative white space font used for a lot of the buttons, making it kinda hard to read without squinting. I think in the way that the purple is used, making it just a tad bit duller would really make it easier on the eyes.

I've got no other complaints though! Love the new logo, looks great!! Here's to getting out of beta!!!!
