oh nononononono... dont change it..
tbh, ill probably quit by then.
youve changed a bit too much for my liking.
That's a real shame. It sounds like you are saying you would quit TamaTalk because the design of the logo changed and because we upgraded the site's software (the original software we ran was ancient and VERY vulnerable to being hacked because it wasn't being updated for security). O-o
I know it can be hard to adjust to changes especially when you liked the site exactly the way it was before, but try to think about all the members you've met and got to know, the different info you find useful here - not just about tamas - and the help / friendship you yourself bring to TamaTalk when you visit. Don't forget that others will probably miss you if you quit! Seems such a shame to threaten to quit over a logo design...

I won't because I am not in the least surprised that Bandai took this approach with their North American branch of Tamagotchi. After poor sales, lack of interest and advancing technology, it was time for a complete product refresh. (whether we like it or not) I'm not trying to justify their new approach, but given the tech-hungry consumer industry here in North America, I believe a colour screen, feature rich Tamagotchi priced at $60-80 would have done poorly regardless. The toy industry is so radically different here than it is in Japan. In fact, more folks are interested in playing $0.99 cent apps rather than investing larger amounts of $$$ in a quality toy that provides unique gameplay. The toy industry is changing rapidly and I think Bandai found themselves at a crossroads with this brand. "Are North Americans going to eat up another release of a Tamagotchi (let's be honest, the brand was becoming exhausted after the Music Star and TamaGo) or should we approach this differently?"
I don't know who or how Bandai gathered their market research to initiate a re-brand of Tamagotchi in this direction, but it makes sense to me. No, I'm not happy with the direction they're taking, but from a business licensing perspective they need to reinvent themselves to keep current. 20-29 year old females are BIG MONEY spenders. Can they tap in on that audience? I'm not sure. Most companies just "follow the money". Business will be business. (not that I agree with this model or anything)
With all of this speculation aside, I still love Tamagotchi. I love my vintages, my Connection series and my ID L's. I love every one of these little plastic eggs just the same (OK, maybe my white ID L just a little more than the others). And while I'm disappointed that I won't see a new North American release any time soon, I'm going to cherish what I have - because I'm not going to waste my precious time hating on Bandai for making to what I perceive as a mistake. They can go ahead and make girly clothing and bath soap. I'm still going to play and collect my Tamagotchis with the same fuzzy-feeling-excitement I had before this release was made public.
Whatever comes next for the Tamagotchi brand may or may not be great. But what we've got here and now are amazing communities full of life, support and great friends. We don't need a corporation to keep our spirits alive - we do it ourselves!

Guys just seriously trust me on this, if super important, you have to be more supportive! If we dont, who knows what will happen!
I hate to be rude, but I don't think you should be forcing your own opinions with the rest of the people who thinks otherwise.
As part of the non-L.i.f.e. crowd, I will tell you that we support Bandai in a way that we criticize its actions which we think does not cater to us fans. If we didn't support Bandai in the first place, why should we care? Why were we in this forum? What are we doing here, right? If we never really cared, we'll just let them do all the things they want, be it good or crappy and not waste time discussing things about it. But supporting does not only mean giving positive feedback, but giving negative feedback as well. This kind of information gives Bandai crucial information about what their customers REALLY want.
Yes, we get your point in supporting Bandai - and no one is forcing to you withdraw it. We respect and value your response. You should behave likewise. We are all entitled to our own opinions.
If Bandai America really does do something that interests us in the near future, I don't see any reason why we should not support it. After all, we're all here for that very reason.

There's a point where enough is just enough. I realise I don't even care anymore. This thing seems to exist only to torment me, and over these last few days it's done a bloody good job of that. But enough is enough, if this thing thinks I'm going to go quitely, it's dead wrong. I raise my pistol once more and fire at that dark form again. This time, I don't stop, not until I've fired every bullet I have. Eight shots, nothing that size could survive this. But I know that it won't have done anything. I was wrong, it did do something, it made it worse. A lord and obnoxious voice fills my head. "THAT WAS A MISTAKE, ALIX". I scream as it lunges foward, showing its true face. I open my mouth in horror and disgust as I stare at it. It smiles. Suddenly, everything is . I scream, but the doesn't stop. is everywhere. I try to claw my own eyes out, but I now realise nothing can possibly stop . My own body begins to tear itself apart. My physical form dissolves under the gaze of .
My soul is torn from my body, and as it dies I enter a room. Completely nondescript. At first I think this is hell, but I quickly realise that this is something even worse, trapped deep within us all. I am alone, and as I look around I can only see one thing.
If you couldn't guess this is meant as a parody of some creepypastas. I know there are a few people who will jump on the "omg hes trollllllllllin" train but I'm aware of what trolling is and this isn't it sory buddy. It's meant to be amusing by being disturbingly bad, kbro?

so basically we've all kind of seen the people here -
there are the
- tama fans ( you guys who stay within the tama forum areas, log about your tamas, take pictures, status update with "my mametchi just had a baby!" or something similar )
- hetalia fans ( you guys really like hetalia and it's a huge topic in tamachat 45% of the time, you also make quite a large amount of tamatalk user-wise )
- half-halfs ( you guys talk about tamas but travel around the forums more, sometimes logging and role-playing or hanging out in non-tamatalk )
- others ( you guys talk about anything that's not tama-related, usually they're roleplayers or avid writers/drawers, and stop playing with tamas a while ago or never did )
and it seems recently there have been a few fights among the four groups! :c
let me get this straight: we're human. it's not our fault we have freedom to think differently. it's not our fault we have opinions. it's not our fault we like things you don't! ;o
and i'm sorry you guys are upset by this, but.. this is kind of silly!! :0
so loves, i think this down here is the right thing to do, you don't have to follow this exactly, i just think i'd be a good thing to keep in mind.
if you are a tama fan? i'd recommend staying within the tamatalk tamagotchi forum, it's probably the place right for you! but please please pleeeease don't tell us non-tama playing people to pick up a tama and tell us off when we actually have never played a tamagotchi. but if you really are disrupted and want a better place for your log or something, why not head on over to tama-zone for more tama-related stuff? there is a LOT more tama stuff there and i think maybe keep your fun stuff and logs here and post more serious tama-related stuff there. ( I AM NOT FORCING YOU TO, YOU GUYS, I'M JUST RECOMMENDING ITTTTTTT :V )
if you are a hetalia fan? i'm perfectly fine with you guys here and i don`t see anything wrong with hetalia, but it's not really the kind of thing i like. please don't annoy the tama fans too much though, i think they just need a bit of space. there actually isn't as much tama stuff here as you think!
if you are a half-half? i appreciate that you are not extremely obsessed with tamas and you're not telling non-tama playing people to immediately pick up a tama and start playing. but be careful of being to drawn to one side than another; some people you know might not appreciate it (trust me, i've experienced this first-hand)
if you are an other: hey! welcome to my side of tamatalk, haha. usually i just kind of hang out in non-tama areas but sometimes pick up a tama and get obsessed again, haha. i guess you can take from what i do if you want? but you don't have to, don't worry UuU!
so yes! sorry if this is a bit rushed but i needed to do this quick.
(tl;dr) please pleeeeaaase respect everyone else even if they are very different from you and honestly i hope this is all gonna work out okay for everybody c;!!

Posted by PoesRaven on 20 November 2011 - 04:29 AM
kiss them good night
sit them around you when you watch your shows
gain the nickname tama mama [or dada for the men ]
talk tamas with your family and show off that cute character you got
their beeps are sometimes more effective than your alarm clock and could probably wake you from a coma
hold contests with your tamas, the ones that win get a special spot on your person when you go on trips [so they can see the world the rest stay in your pocket]
you keep them in your hoodie pocket when it is cold out so they are warm
name them after characters from your favorite shows or characters you have created
save up for tamagotchis all the time and get them in the order of your most wanted, going into in depth research, to decide which ones they will be [getting them all eventually of course]
the most effective way to get you to talk is by taking your tamagotchi away from you
if you take a nap you set your tamagotchis next to your pillow in case they beep for you
in case you don't notice... I am guilty of all... I am a sad excuse for an adult v_v

Notice that at the center is the Tamagotchi toy, but all around it are many tie-in products: toys, the anime series, arcade games, console games (for Nintendo DS), snack foods, clothes, books, stationery, books, etc.
I imagine Bandai America has finally figured out that the toy by itself, as an orphan product won't work. They've got to build product awareness, using a wide range of Tamagotchi character products, to keep it in the consumer's mindspace. They may not have a Tamagotchi toy planned for immediate release, but if this campaign is successful, I imagine a new Tamagotchi toy will be coming.

TamaTalk is a pretty secure site and to be honest, there are really only a couple of ways another person can "hack" your account.
In most cases the "hacker" is usually someone who is able to use the same computer as you - such as a sibling or friend at home or school / work who may also visit TamaTalk or who knows you visit TamaTalk.
The easiest way for someone to "hack" your account is when you don't sign out of TamaTalk properly.
Signing out of TamaTalk is like closing the door behind you when you leave your house. Your password is like the key to get back into the house.
Don't get "hacked" :
Sign Out When you've finished visiting the site.
1. Click on your profile pic (top right hand side of the computer screen) and click on the "Sign Out" link.
2. Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the TamaTalk home page and click on the "Delete Cookies" link.
DON'T just close the browser window!
You may still be logged in and the next person who uses your computer can bring up the previous site visited. If you're still logged in they can post whatever they want on your user name.
You are responsible for your account / user name - and you are also responsible for whatever is posted on this site under that user name - whether or not it was you, your sibling, your ex-best friend or your dog
Sign Out and use your password to make sure it is only you who gets to use your account.
Keep your password safe.
Memorise it. Don't write it down and never (never, never) share it with anyone else - no matter how much you think you can trust them - not your sibling, not your best friend or your dog
Much of this advice is already posted in our Users Guide to TamaTalk: How to Keep Your Account Safe: http://www.tamatalk....r-account-safe/
(For those who think it is just about not posting personal info, you might want to refresh your memory by reading that topic)

Hey guys, today I will start a log for my P's
My aim in this log is to get all the characters in my book
I hope you rate my log, like my posts and maybe even follow, Thanks!
Right now I have a Himespetchi on my P's!
She should get married soon, maybe tommorow
Today, we just hung out around the house
Just chillin' in our house but then it turned dirty, so I cleaned it up
The occupation guy came and offered us a job at the TamaMori!
We accepted and Himespetchi worked hard and served Yumemamatchi and Mitchi Sensei!
With the money she earned, she bought some glasses and she thought she looked so pretty!
We then played with our TamaPet, the Furilabutchi
We then realised that she hadn't taken a bath so I put her in the bathtub
Near the end of the day, we went to the park and met the Music Teacher
We then went outside and we randomly saw a rainbow at night
Before she slept, we went to the Music Cafe and ate some Deluxe Pudding for Supper.
She should be getting married soon and I'm hoping for another girl

Yes, however Tama L.i.f.e. is aimed at women in their early 20's and up. People in this demographic prefer "digital" stuff (which is disappointing for most of us, but sadly this is where the trend is going).
Kids these days aren't really interested in virtual pets anymore anyway.
Well making products one by one cost money. Money they seem not to have with the flop of the music stars and tamago back to back... They are nice tamas, sure. Over-all... It wasn't held in the best of light.
You wanted color. To use something already out there, usually a phone is on a person. (maybe not a smartphone, but phones are WAY more common then from when I was a kid) One less thing to forget. I personally think it maybe a good move. They are working with what they have access to without spending what they have. It can be upgraded, translated and of coarse, color.
Hopefully one day the shells, traditional tamagotchi will be back. I would rather have a shell, but something is better then nothing.
Yeah... People think that brands have lots of money from the start, but it's not true. They have funds they can not exceed before they make money on their own to add to it... And the project isn't even toy related.

Don't get me wrong, nothing can replace the original experience - and nor do I think BanDai is aiming to do that. But with demographic that Tamagotchi L.I.F.E is marketing towards, most of the people (and by people I mean girls) will be carrying smart phones. So it makes sense in my eyes. It's a cheap and efficient way to get a Tamagotchi back in the hands of mainstream consumers as well. This is the evolution of Tamagotchi in North America. We love our iPods, iPhones, Android devices, etc...and from a consumer sales perspectives, people are spending A LOT of money on apps so it works from a profit perspective as well.
I'm embracing this change. I won't ever use the app as a complete replacement for the experience of running a Tamagotchi, but the app fits my lifestyle much better than the original..and so again, I welcome this change. Let's be thankful that we have had the opportunity to buy the physical version of Tamagotchi to play with, to connect with, to log about, to add to our collection. Those are great memories that will last forever. And so with this change, lets be open to what BanDai has in store for us. Perhaps they will port a full colour version for us in the future (similar to gameplay on the ID L's and P's). Who knows? iOS and Android are amazing platforms to deliver these kinds of experiences to many people quickly and cheaply.
My two cents

Of course I had heard the stories, everyone had. But they were just things to scare kids with. Complete and utter nonsense, a monster that caused you soul to collapse on itself? It was crazy. One night, however, that all changed.
It was after a particularly disturbing story about an angel and I was walking along a dimly lit hall at the local community centre that I had volunteered at after being encouraged to do something for the community. Suddenly, I felt a shiver run down my spine. "Hello?" I asked. I quickly relaxed, it was obviously nothing, and I was just unsettled after that story, that’s all. Despite this, I began to walk faster. I only had one more building to lock, the old library, and then I could go home. I felt that presence again and quickly turned around to face the way I’d come. Nothing there, of course, but by now I was genuinely frightened. I heard a laugh in the distance, and that was what broke me. I couldn’t take this any more, I broke into a run, but by now it was too late.
The darkness reached out to me and covered me in . I tried to scream out, but the had already completely taken over. I tried to lash out at the , but nothing could hurt it. I felt something reaching out from deep with in me, and in horror I realised that I was the ! The consumed me, and I consumed it, for I am the , and the is me. All shall become

It was another crazy day at TamaTalk University. People quarreling, people eating, flying purple dolphins, someone rolling on the floor. Not a new scenery to the teachers and the students alike. "Good morning class, I'm your Science teacher, Ra." Ra said while fixing his things.
"We're going to talk about Dinosaurs and Art. I mean- Chemistry."
"Good Morning Ra!" Everyone said enthusiastically.
"RA CAN WE SWITCH LIVES?!" Hayden said. Ra just gave Hayden a small smirk and proceeded to the Science Lab.
"It's chemistry class! Time to blow up some peanuts!" tamafan325 said while horsing around the lab.
"Oh God, not Chemistry" Vitto (BigDaddy46) sighed.
" Dernt yer wernt cermerstrey? Erts releh fern." tamafan325 said while gobbling down a bag of peanuts.
"Hmm. I'll try adding Magnesium,Lithium, Gallium, Zinc, Scandium, Sodium" Dazzmina (dazzilitchigirl) muttered to herself.
"Err, Dazz, Don't you think that's a lot?" Rachel (tamatown123) said to Dazzmina.
"Of course not! Maybe I can make a purple dolphin with Flerovium, Mercury, Einsteinium, Astatine" Dazz continued and mentioned every element on the Periodic Table.
“Mwahahaha. I shall make a substance that will make me turn into Coffretchi.” Hayden said to himself while laughing horribly.
Vitto grabbed Michael's bag of peanuts and spilled it on the floor. Jino appeared out of nowhere and sprinkled sugar all over it while twerking.
"There. Now shut up." Vitto said to tamafan325.
"Bu-bu-but.. that... peanuts... tasty... mine... but..." tamafan325 said while looking at his peanuts.
"WEEE~ SUGAR! SUGAR EVERYWHERE! WEEE~" Jino said while hopping all over the lab and sprinkling sugar as well.
"Now Stan, don't you move, I'll just be gone for a while. I'll come back after class okay?" Jade (PuffySnivy) said to a picture of Spat.
“I HATE COFFRETCHI SHE SHOULD DIE” Tamacass said.
“YES YES YES!” Tamastar, Dazzmina and Hayden shouted.
“HIMESPETCHI AND MAMETCHI FOREVER!” Tamacass said.
“YES YES YES” EMF replied.
And the chanting continued.
"Mametchi's better!" EMF shouted.
"No. Duke's better! He's great at everything" Doomer replied to EMF.
"Mametchi's smart, charming and he can also be Ikemen!" EMF shouted once more.
"Duke has all that! He's the greatest person in the whole world!" Doomer said.
"Duke isn't even a person!"
"Mametchi isn't as well. Your Mametchi is no match for my Duke I tell you!"
"Guys calm down. You know what you two should do?" Story (x.//StoryTeller//.x) said to the siblings.
"What?" EMF and Doomer said.
"Sing Opera with me!~" Story sang.
"No. Let's just draw! Or eat cheese." Katy (Tama-Star_Girl) said while bringing out a drawing pad and a box of cheese.
"Here we got Mozzarella, Feta, Cheddar and Pepperjack. Don't touch that one. That's blue cheese. But I bet Sal would eat them." Katy said while daydreaming.
"Now now, Katy-Sama, Get yourself together. Stop daydreaming." EMF muttered.
"Huh, what? Oh yeah, Drawing, Cheese, Sal, Daydream... What's next..." Katy pondered.
"OPERATIC SINGING OF COURSE. WITH ACTING TOO." Story said.
Flare (Flare.exe), Mystery (MysteryMoonBeam) and Amat (Amat Gotchi) were running late. The three of them saw the class and the three of them stepped back a bit.
Flare asked Mystery and Amat,"Woah. What kind of class is this?"
"I don't know as well to be honest" Amat said to Flare while Story was singing Opera.
"How are we suppose to approach them?" Flare asked the two.
"I don't know but I feel like I should start a Potato Fan Club!" Mystery said happily while Flare got hit by a sugar-coated peanut on his forehead.
"I guess we should just come in? We're late already!" Amat said.
“Whatever you say. Maybe we should get helmets at least.” Flare said to the girls.
“Where are we suppose to get helmets? I know! Let’s use Potatoes!” Mystery said.
“Whatever works best then.” Flare and Amat said.
The three of them walked in the chaotic, destructed Science lab.
"All right class, settle down!" Ra shouted at the class. It seems like no one heard him.
"The most behaved person in the class will get 1/4 of my collection." Ra said.
Everyone went back to their chairs in a span. Not a single dirt was seen and nothing can be heard except for the air conditioner.
"Good. Now since you are many, I have decided to group you into 4." Ra said while everyone gasped.
"The 5 groups are Unicorn, Sparkles, Rainbows, Dinosaur and Bunnies." Ra said in a serious manner while fixing his hat.
" And the members for the Unicorn group are..."
To be continued! PS I have Tamatown123's permission
Who else wants to be added? Oh and the groups are randomized by a randomizer so the story won't be dictated by me
What do you think? This is my first Fanfic of some sort I dunno? Feedback?

Please insert your USB to IrDA into your computer. When doing this, it should pop up saying "Downloading USB into computer" onto your computer. Do NOT connect your Tamagotchi right away, wait until it has finished downloading. After you've completed all of this, your ready for step 2.
After the USB cable has been downloaded you could now connect your Tamagotchi iD L to the computer. Go to the 5th icon and select the 4 option (translate means downloads). Connect it to your USB to IrDA. Be sure that the connection is straight together or it will take longer than your expecting (it shouldn't take you longer than 1 connection). After you've completed this, you're ready for step 3.
Keep connecting until an app appears on your computer. It should say "Send files to another computer" click on that app before it goes away. Do not send the file right away! It will corrupt the system and it will freeze! Find the file you want to send, connect your iD L again. and straight away when it say "TMGC is in Range" you double click the file right away or it will freeze.
