I Quit BW And I’m Closing Weevily World.

Hello Viewers!
It is with some sadness that I am quitting Bin Weevils and I am also closing Weevily World. This decision has been a long time coming, but was finalised early this evening, shortly after BW went back online.
Bin Weevils went live again earlier this evening, but before I even knew it had re-opened, two people notified me via Facebook, saying someone was using my weevil and someone else had changed its password too.
None of this came as any surprise to me whatsoever. I knew there would be, at least one pathetically sad individual, who would be sitting there, trying to login as “judisue” – as soon as BW came back online! I’m not even surprised by who it was. I knew that this was exactly what would happen, unless BW issued new passwords, to players with publicly, compromised accounts. I really, really hoped they would do that.
It seems to me, beyond ridiculous that the BW team, also knowing that this was exactly what could happen, didn’t at least issue new passwords, to players like me, who had emailed them concerning their security breach and the exposure of our accounts. They were made fully aware, of the extent of the situation and the subject of other people, going on the compromised accounts, before the legitimate users could login in to them, had already been raised.
No one knows the extent of the login details stolen and it seems unlikely to me, that our hacker has only the details, of so-called “famous” weevils. I was told that he has a list of all user accounts and I know that a complete list, of all of my weevils, was comprehensively shared.
It is reasonable to assume, that all user details would be kept in the same file and, for this reason, it is essential that, if you haven’t already, you secure your account now! If you find you are unable to do this, you should notify Bin Weevils immediately.

I hope that, once you have all changed your passwords, your login details will be secure, but I’ve simply had enough. I have had some truly, wonderful times with you, but both Bin Weevils and Weevily World have become to stressful to continue.

I intend for Weevily World to remain, as a resource only. All team members, other than myself, will be removed and comments disabled. A “sticky post” will be left to inform any future viewers of this.
An email was sent to all authors/editors, notifying them of my decision and inviting them to make final posts. I used the email addresses registered with WordPress. (Tyanna if you are reading this, I wasn’t sure it was ok to use that email.)
Updates to my BW Facebook page and BW Twitter accounts will also be discontinued.
You may comment on this post but I cannot guarantee you a reply. I do not wish to get drawn in to certain discussions and my decisions are final.
PS. I’ve restored a “retro” banner that makes me remember Weevily World at its best!

Bin Weevils in the National News?

Hello Bin Weevils,

Yes, I know I haven’t been blogging in a very long while, but I thought you would like to know that Bin Weevils is in the National News due to the fact that their advertisements encourage children to spend money. Below is the full article.

Clampdown on adverts in popular children’s online games: Owners of Moshi Monsters and Bin Weevils are told they must change as they put pressure on young to pay for extras
Creators of two online children’s games ordered to change their adverts
Moshi Monsters and Bin Weevils put pressure on kids to pay for extras
The owners have been branded ‘irresponsible’ by Advertising Standards
The games, both made in Britain, are hugely popular and played by millions of children as young as six on smartphones, tablets and computers

The creators of two online games have been told they must change their adverts – as they put pressure on young children to pay for extras.
Tactics used by the owners of Moshi Monsters and Bin Weevils have been branded ‘irresponsible’ by the Advertising Standards Authority, which has ruled that the firms must now change the way they operate.

They are marketed on the basis that they are free to play.
However, they include so-called ‘in-app purchases’ – extra elements that carry fees which are charged to parents’ credit cards.
The ASA, in a landmark ruling published today, has said the games breached advertising rules covering social responsibility and rules which outlaw direct appeals to children over the heads of their parents.

It took action following a complaint from the official fair trading watchdog, the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA).
As a result, Mind Candy, the owner of Moshi Monsters, and Bin Weevils’ 55 Pixels have both agreed to change the wording of their in-app advertisements.
It was the brainchild of Michael Acton Smith, who has amassed a personal fortune of some £125m through the success of the game and was awarded an OBE last year for his services to the creative industries

The ASA’s Miles Lockwood said: ‘It’s crucial that the ads children see, hear and interact with don’t confuse, mislead or directly exhort them to make purchases.’
The CMA’s senior director, Nisha Arora, said: ‘Three-quarters of 10- to 15-year-olds in the UK play video games every day, so it’s clear that they are a significant part of children’s lives.
‘We are concerned that some games may directly encourage children to buy extra features during the game.’
Moshi Monsters was created in Britain in 2008 and has become an international phenomenon with an estimated 90 million users around the world.
It was the brainchild of Michael Acton Smith, who has amassed a personal fortune of some £125m through the success of the game and was awarded an OBE last year for his services to the creative industries.
The game revolves around the fact that children are encouraged to raise and care for a group of virtual pet monsters Diavlo, Luvli, Katsuma, Poppet, Zommer and Furi.
The monsters have been turned into toys which have been given away with McDonalds Happy Meals.
The company behind the game, Mind Candy, has also cashed in by releasing songs, a magazine and a film.
The ASA said: ‘Although it was possible to play the game without spending real money or sharing the game, certain activities required participation in a paid-membership system, which entitled members to additional benefits.’
Like Moshi Monsters, Bin Weevils has millions of subscribers and it has won four consecutive BAFTA Awards for Best Children’s Website

Youngsters were promised ‘cool extras’ such as ‘Super Moshi’ missions, extra habitats, access to new games and customisation of their virtual pet monsters if they bought membership.
The current fees run from £2.50 a month to £4.95 a month depending on how long people sign up for.
Given the millions of children involved, this amounts to a licence to print money.
The ASA said the wording used in the pop advertisements suggested children who signed up for the paid for membership would be ‘super popular’.
Youngsters were told they should ‘Join Now’ and that the Super Moshi characters ‘Need You’.
It said the games were effectively putting pressure on young players to purchase the subscription. It said the language amounted to ‘direct exhortations to purchase membership subscriptions’.
As a result, it said the game breached advertising rules covering social responsibility and rules which outlaw direct appeals to children over the heads of their parents.
Mind Candy has agreed to change the wording used in the pop up ads in response to the complaint and the ASA’s decision.
The complaints raised about the Bin Weevils game, which was also created in the UK, were similar to those made about Moshi Monsters.
Here children are recruited to adopt and care for virtual pets that live in the bins.
Again, children were encouraged to click on a series of advertisements to buy a subscription for various extras including hats and items to dress up the creatures’ nests.
Like Moshi Monsters, Bin Weevils has millions of subscribers and it has won four consecutive BAFTA Awards for Best Children’s Website.
The company behind the game 55 Pixels has agreed to change the language used in its advertisements in response to the findings of the ASA.

Bin Weevils Community Blog – Name Poll!

Hi everyone, this is sheepes3364!

On Twitter, the Bin Weevils community have been thinking about opening a community blog, which is just like a blog, but there isn’t one owner, and we focus on what happens in the community – let’s think of it as the What’s New Blog, but our version! But first, we need a name! Please complete this quick poll to help us decide what the new blog should be called. On Wednesday 18th Feb (which is also Ash Wednesday this year), I will collect the vote results, and name the blog. However, you can vote at any time, any day, any month of the year!

sheepes3364 asks: Would you like me to return?

WHello Bin Weevils!

I have been inactive on many blogs (apart from Binsignificance), and this is because I have partially took a short-term break from reporting all the news on Bin Weevils – it takes up a lot of my valuable time, but I won’t leave yet. I thought that I’d let the public decide if you’d like me to continue; if more than 70% say yes, I’ll stay, and if more than 65% say no, I’ll gradually become quieter.

If you comment here on Weevily World, I’ll add your comment to ther post.

(Oops! There’s no comments yet – leave a comment to be added.)

Thank you. The poll results will be announced on 18th December 2014, where my decision will be finalised.

Weevily World May Be Gone… But Never Fear, The Weevily Gang Is HERE!

Hello Bin Weevils!

Yes, this is yoshi6601, and many of you may not even know I was an author on this amazing blog, due to my pure laziness and firstly I would just personally like to apologise for very rarely posting here. I was saddened when I heard of the terrible news of judisue quitting Bin Weevils, and closing Weevily World. Many of you may not know this, but Weevily World has been open since early 2012, and I was one of the very first weevils to stumble on this amazing blog, while searching the net for the latest code for the ‘Weekend Puzzle Challenge’. From that day on, I continued to view, read, comment and share with my friends this amazing site. Mid 2012, I decided to start up my very own Bin Weevils Blog, The Weevily Gang, the very reason because of judisue. I remember asking her, what her tips were for making a successful blog were, and she told me everything and from that day on, I became an active member of the Bin Weevils Blogging Communtiy. I have always read Weevily World. Whether it be that I needed a bit of inspiration for my latest blog post, or maybe I was just bored. Weevily World was always there for me, and it will always hold a big place in my heart.

Now, many of you may be looking for another Bin Weevils Fan Site to read after the loss of Weevily World, and I say, never fear, The Weevily Gang is HERE! Now we may be no Weevily World, but posting all of the latest news in the BinScape before any other Fan Site and daily may be the kind of site you want to read. Just click here. Or click the image or any of the text to visit The Weevily Gang. :)

Also, before I end this off, I wish you good luck for the future Jude, and the Bin Weevils community will never forget you. <3

Weevily World – Gone but NEVER Forgotten…

Hello Weevily World viewers,

From the lack of posting from every staff member for the past weekend and the lack of news, you probably know Weevily World is closed. Not forever though! Just incase you were wondering what would happen though is that Weevily World will be a helpful source for anyone that wishes to see the Mystery Codes from 2013-14 before they expired, or if someone wants to see the crossword help page, that will still be open for you all to enjoy.

But from me, sheepes, and the rest of the Weevily World team,we’d like to thank each and every viewer at home for making this community a friendly and supportive one, and we wouldn’t have reached 1,500,000 views without you. I guess it’s time to end what may be Weevily World’s last post for a while. Once again, a MASSIVE THANK YOU!
