    TGIF! Here’s your development news round-up for the past week!

    Player Bans November 9 - November 15

    As a reminder, the following numbers are permanently frozen accounts, and don't count temporary freezes.

    FB: 1
    KP2: 11
    Kong/Armor: 217

    The majority of permanently frozen accounts are frozen for being a shared or alternate account. This is something we actively investigate, and we appreciate players reporting suspicious accounts to us.

    If you have any questions or comments about a frozen account, please direct them through Support as the Forums are not the place to discuss account freezes, because of the sensitive account information involved.

    New Limited Items!

    A new week means new Limited Items! Here’s what’s up for grabs:


    Weekday Calendar November 23!

    Don’t be a turkey! Get ready for the Weekday Day Calendar, starting November 23 at 10 am Pacific and running until November 27 at 10 pm Pacific.


    Separate Tab for Raid Bosses!

    During the next Raid Event you will notice that Raid Bosses now have their own tab on the Boss page, similar to how Challenges have their own space next to Adventures.

    You can read a bit more about this change and see some screenshots in this thread here.

    KanoPlay Mobile Website Updated!

    As we continue to work on our iOS apps, we are bringing the strides we make there over to KanoPlay so those of us without iPhones can take advantage of all the improvements. KanoPlay Mobile has just been updated with the most recent changes so make sure to check it out when you’re on the go!

    Happy weekend!

    Thank you @mi7ch for writing up my section of the TGIF last Friday. We were seeing some unexpected alerts with my email system and I wanted to make sure my work was backed up in case it went kaput.

    It's been an interesting week. The recent tragedy in Paris has been on our minds, as it has with many of our players. We know many people feel strongly about topics such as the international response to this and other acts of terror, as well as the policies on the handling of refugees.

    While I believe that interest in and discussion of these topics is important and necessary, I'll remind everyone that comments that paint all people of a particular religion, national origin, or ethnicity as dangerous or inferior are not acceptable. So don't be racist. :)

    We did have a player contact us suggesting we do a special item sale to raise funds for the relief efforts. I think it's a great idea -- unfortunately campaigns like that have some pretty strict legal requirements and we're not set up to handle them on short notice. However we do encourage anyone interested in helping out to consider a donation to the Red Cross, which aids in emergencies like these across the world.

    You can donate either to the National Society in your country, or to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) directly (which I have done) here . ( http://www.ifrc.org/en/get-involved/donate/ )



    Terrible Joke of the Week

    Here's your lame joke of the week!

    Why did Cinderella get kicked off the soccer team?
    Because she kept running from the ball!

    That's it for TGIF this week, everybody! Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

    217 bans and as has been said - the people responsible left un touched to do it all again. Like taking headache tablets for a brain tumor, the pain might go, but the problem is still there.

    Im glad the 217 are gone, but inconvenience isnt a deterrent to the few that made the 217 in the first place. Like Arnie - they'll be back.

    While I understand that this a concerning number of bans, bear in mind that we haven't been posting regular larger numbers over the past few weeks, so this is a backlog more than anything else.

    If you want to report another player to us for creating alt accounts, please send them to Support. We find that we rarely have to have the same conversation with people more than twice. :)

    Ahem. Someone needs to check out the art behind the Thanksgiving calendar. It is the Halloween art. No turkey, just a cauldron of skulls. IJS.

    What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than with a cauldron of skulls? It's probably too late to fix this now. Unless a background can somehow be uploaded without affecting calendars already in progress.
