Free Elite Member Weekend Fun!

Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a great time during Free Elite Member Weekend. The Pandanda Moderators gave me reports of lots of shopping going on, as well as fashion shows and tree house parties. That's what I like to hear!

Mod Skippers and Mod Gemmza even took some pictures during the weekend. They said they'd love it if I shared them with you. Take a look and see if you made it into one of their pictures!

Party on, Pandas!

Quest Rewards Catalog Updated!

All of you Super Questers have been waiting for it, and it's here at last! Questy has updated his Quest Rewards catalog with awesome items for Levels 70 and 75!

You asked for dragon companions in different colors - you got 'em! You asked for Trixie's hooded cloak - you got it! Plus, there are several more cool things that I really think you will like. I can't wait to see Super Questers all over Pandanda Land with the new items!

Remember, just because we have set Level 75 as the maximum Quest Level, it doesn't mean that Questing is over. There are still lots of Pandas working their way up the Levels. And each day new Pandas join Pandanda, and can begin Questing!

In honor of the new Quest items, check out the new poll! Let us know where you are in Quests - have you just begun, are you halfway to the maximum, have you reached the top? We want to know!

In case you forgot to check the results of the "Favorite Companion" poll, Dragons were by far the most popular, with 77% of the votes. Horse companions received 22% of the votes. But I don't think Horses have anything to worry about. Their owners love them!

Quest on, Pandas!

Ahoy Mateys! It's International Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Yo-ho-ho! I look forward to International Talk Like a Pirate Day every year, but this year I almost forgot! Arrrgggg! Thank goodness Mod Jule reminded me.

Not sure how to talk like a pirate? Well, we've made it really easy for you! Just check out the Safe Chat menu from the toolbar at the bottom of your Pandanda screen. The very first group of Safe Chat phrases is "Pirate"!

You can say "Ahoy!" instead of "Hello!"  And instead of asking "Will you be my friend?" you can ask "Will ye be me bucko?" Just have fun with it!

I bet a lot of you have the pirate costume that Jule is wearing. If you do, get dressed up with your pirate panda pals and take a funny picture of you all talking like pirates! If you send your pictures to screenshots@pandanda.com with PIRATES in the subject line, I'll pick a few to feature here on my blog!

Avast! I must hit the high seas!

Pandanda Game Day on Saturday


The first Pandanda Game Day back in July was so much fun, that we decided it is time for another one! So make sure your bunny nets and ghost-catching backpacks are ready to go for your chance to earn lots of coins, and maybe even Panda Gold.

You will have a chance to win Panda Gold from Moderators in games of Bunny Chase and Ghosts of Misty Hill. The Mods will be hosting as many games as they can fit into their shifts, giving you lots of chances to win Panda Gold. Instead of awarding 25 Gold for 1st place and 10 Gold for 2nd place like they usually do, they will award 250 Gold to 1st place and 100 Gold to 2nd place!

Also, every multiplayer game will award double Coins on Saturday. That means every time you play Pen the Pig, Line 4, Ghosts of Misty Hill, and Bunny Chase, you will receive twice as many Pandanda Coins as you usually do. There is no limit to the amount of Panda Coins you can win!

There is one change for Game Day to the usual rules for Panda Gold games. Normally, the rule is that you can only win Panda Gold once a day. But for Saturday only, you can win more than once a day, but you can only win Gold once from each Moderator.

For example, say you won Panda Gold from Jinxsey. If you play another game with Jinxsey and come in 1st or 2nd place, you can't win any more gold from her. But, if you see another Mod, like Maxxwell, later and play and win a game with him, you CAN win Panda Gold again! Every Mod will be keeping a list of their winners.

One rule has not changed - NO POTIONS! Just use your regular Panda skills to catch those bunnies and ghosts, with no help from turbo or bunny potions. I know everyone will play fairly!

I will be hosting some Panda Gold Games tomorrow, too! I'm planning to kick off Game Day with a visit at 12am Pandanda Time, then at 8am Pandanda Time, then again at 3pm Pandanda Time. You can click on each link to see what time it will be where you live.

Remember, you can only earn Panda Gold from  games that a Moderator or I am hosting. We will be traveling around all of the servers, so you might have a better chance of winning if you play on a less-crowded server. Panda Gold games will be available from 7am-12pm Pandanda Time and again from 2-7pm Pandanda Time, but you can earn double coins all day long!

Get ready to play!

Zing Ballyhoo Returns!

Zing Ballyhoo is back in Pandanda Land! Yeah, he was a little late, but he made it, and that's what matters! Collect ten of the Golden Tickets that he has hidden all around Pandanda, then visit him in the Treehouse Lobby to get your prize. I've already seen a lot of you wearing his first prize. I am very curious to see what his prize theme is this time!

I had a great time visiting with a crowd of pandas at the Level 50+ Party this past Saturday. There were so many dragons flying around that it really slowed the site down! After taking a couple of dragon-back pictures, we all decided it was best to send our dragon companions back to our backpacks, so we could have an easier time typing and chatting.

Dragons, dragons, dragons!
Smiling Super Questers
Horses and ponies and a dragon, oh my!
I shared some information about updates with them, and now I'll share those updates with you all!
  • Questy IS going to be adding some Quest rewards for Level 75, as well as some of the other high levels later this month. There should be even more around Christmas.
  • Look for some new Halloween costumes in October.
  • New Quests will be added later this year.
Those are just a few things for everyone to look forward to! And don't forget about Pandanda Game Day coming up this Saturday! There will be lots of chances that day to win Panda Gold from Moderators  while playing Ghosts of Misty Hill and Bunny Chase. I'll have more information about that later this week.

Party on, Pandas!

Weekend Fun!

Hey there, friends!

I wanted to remind you about the events that are planned for this weekend. First, the Level 50+ Exclusive Party will be tomorrow at 11:00am Pandanda Time on Palm Server. Everyone who has reached Level 50 and above is invited to this party, even if you are not Elite. The only requirement is that you are at least Level 50.

Sunday is Stormy Colors Day. Dress in your grey, black or even dark purple Panda Paint, clothes, and accessories and pretend to be a little storm cloud floating around Pandanda. And if you hang out at Misty Hill, where it always seems pretty stormy, you might even run into a Mod who is awarding Panda Gold for catching ghosts!

Sounds kinda gloomy, but don't worry! Zing Ballyhoo will be back on Monday with his shiny Golden Tickets and cool prizes to drive the storm clouds away. I wonder what kind of cool things he picked up on his travels?

Oh, and just in case you hadn't noticed, I put up a new Poll a few days ago. Make sure to cast your vote!

Party on, Pandas!

Important Quest Level Announcement + Level 50 Party!

I promised you all an important announcement about Quests, and here it is -  the maximum Quest Level that players can reach is now set at Level 75. The Pandanda Team and I came to this decision after considering many things, including the comments and suggestions we have received from many of you.

Once you reach Level 75 you can continue to do Quests and earn coins, but you will no longer receive Panda Power or Level Up. There will be some special Quest Awards for Level 75 added to Questy's Catalog soon.

Don't worry! That doesn't mean that Quests are over, no way! There will still be 9 Quests available each day  for all of you who are still working on Leveling Up. Many new players have joined Pandanda since Quests began last year, and many more will join in the future, and they will all be able to keep on Questing!

In honor of this announcement (and since it's been a long time since we've had one!) I have planned a party this weekend for everyone who has reached Level 50 and above! Meet me on Palm server at 11:00am Pandanda Time this Saturday, September 10th. You can click that link to find out what time it will be where you live.

Let's fill the sky with dragons and the land with horses as we celebrate your Quests accomplishments! 

Keep on Questing!

Pandanda Coloring Pages!

I've had a lot of pandas tell me that they wished Pandanda had some coloring pages. Well, your wish has come true! I've just added a brand new Pandanda Coloring Book page my blog. You will find 9 different Pandanda pictures that you can print out and color!

I hope you will have a lot of fun with this new feature! Maybe you will discover that you are an artist as you use your creativity to turn the line drawings into beautifully colored works of art.

PARTy on, Pandas!

Sheriff Steele's Security Tips - Account Security

Hi again, Pandanda Citizens,

I hope you have all learned a lot about keeping your Pandanda account safe this week. With a strong, hard-to-guess password that you keep completely private, you can pretty much know that your account will be safe and secure.

Here are a few last tips to help make sure that your panda, and all of the things you have worked so hard to collect and buy, will be secure:

Do not check the “Remember my password” box on the login page if you play Pandanda on a public computer, such as at school or the library, or even at home where other people play.
  • If that box is checked, all anyone has to do to go on your account is click on your panda’s picture.  
  • Always log out of Pandanda when you go away from your computer. It is also a good idea to close the Internet browser. 
Make sure your computer is updated with good anti-virus and anti-spyware program
  • Pandanda has many security features in place to protect your account information, but it is up to you to protect your own computer.
Only use an account that you have created yourself, using your own email address. 
  • If you use an account that someone else made, that person still has control over the account because it is registered to their email address.
Don't forget, if you ever forget your username or your password, you can use the "I forgot my password" link. By entering your email address there, you will receive an email that shows the username and password for all of the accounts registered to that address. And if you need to change your password, use the "Change my password" link. You can find both of those links at the bottom of the Pandanda login page.
Keep it safe, Pandas!
Sheriff Steele
