Electoral Update: Tomorrow's Just a Day Away

Posted by The Toontown Team on March 22, 2014 at 7:00 PM

It's unlike us to do stories out-of-tooniverse, but this one we figured deserved it. Today we ran into some very serious server issues from the big turnout at the election. We tried our best to fix them, only to find that there was a deeper problem.

We're super sorry for another delay, but because of the server issue and our severe lack of sleep there was nothing that can be done today. We'll let you know what's going on tomorrow -- assuming we don't sleep the entire day through!

If you were one of the many toons who were eagerly watching our stream throughout the day: don't worry, it wasn't all for nothing. We'll be rewarding 100 of you with Beta Keys when the time comes to apologize for the server struggle we went through. Once again, we can't express our sorrow for the delay, but we promise that whenever you do see the Election: it will definitely be worth it. Our modelers, texture artists, composers, and of course developers have devoted all of their freetime and more for the past month into making this the best event that we've seen on Toontown in years.

Rome wasn't built in a day -- and neither was Toontown! The difference is that Rome had paid workers and slaves. We have codemonkeys, which is sort of like a slave. But it's a monkey. And it's us. So not much to do there. See you all tomorrow!

Thanks for all of your hard work! I am so excited and I can't wait for TTR! (: You guys are awesome!!

Mousy said on March 22, 2014 at 6:24 PM
Aww, it got delayed. :( These other toons should be grateful that TTR is in the making, because they were mad.

PrincessKait1 said on March 22, 2014 at 6:43 PM
Was really hoping for the election today, thanks developers for all the work so far, keep it up.

Melody Kooky Sprinkles said on March 22, 2014 at 7:00 PM
I have to admit I was a little disappointed but I realize that what you guys are doing isn't easy. Expecially with so many toons trying to log on and see whats happening.

Thanks for all your hardwork so far, I'm sure it will pay off! Good luck on fixing the issues and hopefully you'll be able to start the election!

Spike said on March 22, 2014 at 7:04 PM
Thank you for all your work guys!!! Take your time. We have no right to complain about the delay. We understand that you have lives outside of the computer. Plus, this is something you are doing out of kindness. We have no reason to complain about delays. Once again a HUGE thank you to every person involved in this project; YOU are toontastic!!!

Rufus said on March 22, 2014 at 7:06 PM
-Claps- ...No worries, and that Rome analogy is great.

TrickyxTony said on March 22, 2014 at 7:07 PM
It's OK about the delay, my mom and I had fun watching everyone's stream and eating pop corn while we waited. We can't wait to see who wins! and hope we don't miss it. Thanks TTrw Team. Good Luck!! XD

Groot said on March 22, 2014 at 7:08 PM
Thank you, TTR Staff, for everything. I completely understand your difficulties. It doesn't matter when you get the Election done, because either way, I will be the happiest Toon in the world. Thanks!

Sir Dynamite said on March 22, 2014 at 7:08 PM
We know it wasn't your fault that today went wrong, so you don't owe us an apology. While it was indeed painful to sit through five hours of boredom, you couldn't do anything about it. Plus, many of the viewers were cursing, being rude, and picking on you for taking so long, but many of us see that no one is to be blamed. Hopefully next time will go better, and WE apologize that you had been so pressured.

Zapzilla said on March 22, 2014 at 7:09 PM
Thank you Sir Max! Remember, no matter what happens or whatever mistakes are made, TTR will always be the best!

Bob said on March 22, 2014 at 7:12 PM
I was there! Crossing my fingers for one of them keys! Hope everything is smooth tomorrow!

Princess Hulagadget said on March 22, 2014 at 7:17 PM
Thank you all so much for setting this all up for us. Hopefully this shows what needed to finally be tested - ways to reduce population lag! That was one of the biggest issues in open TT, and hopefully with enough big events like this that will attract all of the members, you can find ways to reduce lag for the future :D

Bongo Rufflepop said on March 22, 2014 at 7:19 PM
lol it was a good four hours. I'm excited that ttr is still thriving and can't wait to see what's in store for everyone. thank you for your best effort guys!

SailorBear said on March 22, 2014 at 7:20 PM
Thank for the Update! It was entertaining in the chatbox, and good choice of music for the standby screen hehe. The positive side is you know tons of people are supporting you. Good luck to you guys!

Silly Sandy Wonderseed said on March 22, 2014 at 7:39 PM
I can't express how happy and thankful my little brother and I are due to your hard work. Yes, we were two of the 1,000 people who stayed and watch the entire time, but it was all worth it knowing how well it was going to turn out. I personally apologize for how the other fans were reacting on the comments during the stream. Just remember your team is creating endless happiness that can last a lifetime and gave back the joy we once lost. I once more say thank you, but it still won't be enough to truly thank you, due to all the hard work and the lack of sleep you and your team put forth.

SO excited for Beta. I hope I can get a key, good luck all :)

Rainbow said on March 22, 2014 at 8:09 PM
That alright you guys are working hard keep it up!

Z.Z. Zippenzilla said on March 22, 2014 at 8:22 PM
Sorry to hear you guys had problems...looking forward to the results of the elections, and one of those Beta keys... :)

Caramel Latte said on March 22, 2014 at 8:26 PM
No problem at all! I have been patient and will continue being patient. I'm grateful y'all are doing this for us. Thank you <3

Kyle said on March 22, 2014 at 8:37 PM
You guys have been working very hard to get toontown back for all the fans. One delay isn't a big deal, I'll be patient. Good luck to both Slappy and Flippy!

Hey TTR Team. I just wanted to say it's just lovely how devoted you are to the game and fixing everything, so thank you so much for trying so hard. I'm sure that none of us will mind waiting that tiny bit longer; I don't. I hope you can get some rest soon!

Jymjam said on March 23, 2014 at 3:55 AM
Take your time guys! I appreciate your hard work and dedication to working on Toontown rewritten, stay toony!

Princess Lollipop said on March 23, 2014 at 5:08 AM
Honestly, if toons are waiting for the Election. They can wait, the ToonTown Rewritten Team's Health and Sanity comes first. :D Thank you TTR Team for at least attempting to fix the serve problem :) You guys deserve sleep and a break. Toon On! :D

Macrockentoon said on March 23, 2014 at 5:09 AM
It's OK. You can take your time, seriously, and I'm not just trying this for a beta key. The good news is that TTR's progress always goes fast. It feels like just a week ago you started the new program of TTR, and it feels like just yesterday you started the elections.

Mike Thunderflame said on March 23, 2014 at 5:58 AM
Hey Troopers! While I am a little upset, it's only because I spent all that time watching the steam, but I totally understand the delays. Good luck getting the election going!

Clover Hulagrooven said on March 23, 2014 at 6:07 AM
I totally understand about the wait don't worry guys! And wow a hundred beta keys? I hope toons without you tube accounts will get a chance as well. But even if we don't it'll still be great when it releases to the public. thanks so much for your hard work ttr.

Coolix Cat said on March 23, 2014 at 6:18 AM
You guys are great! Thank you so much for all your hard work and late nights!

Queen Scooter Loopenwoof said on March 23, 2014 at 6:31 AM
Seriously, guys, don't sweat it. I understand that you guys are under a lot of stress and pressure from some impatient toons putting on more and more pressure. Just take your time, and give all these toons a good game whenever you're ready. I waited 5.5 hours without a peep. I wish there were more dedicated toons like me who would rather have a high quality game later, than a low quality game now. :)

The Silly Dog said on March 23, 2014 at 7:21 AM
All of you did your best to make it happen, and there are some of us out here that understand not everything always goes as planned. You guys are doing a great job. Don't stress yourselves out too much. Too much stress is never a good thing.

Skyline said on March 23, 2014 at 7:54 AM
Don't be sorry! Its totally fine that its taking awhile to fix technical difficulties, at least we know you guys are trying to fix the technical difficulties! Also, good luck to all the elections!

Bananas said on March 23, 2014 at 8:00 AM
Aww its ok, dont feel bad we know how hard you worked, you rule TTR Team!

It is okay that there is another delay, I just wish Slappy and Flippy good luck and I can't wait until Toontown Rewritten opens to the public!

Cool Fluffy said on March 23, 2014 at 10:52 AM
Don't worry! I can wait! You guys have done a great job! Keep it up!

BumbleMush said on March 23, 2014 at 10:58 AM
I hope I get a beta key! I cant wait any longer!

Poppy Electromuddle said on March 23, 2014 at 11:19 AM
It's quite alright. Take all of the time you need. I really don't mind waiting. I can be patient. Sorry about the problems and I hope they will be fixed soon. Thanks for bringing Toontown back to us, by the way!

Funny Quackers said on March 23, 2014 at 2:28 PM
You guys are doing great! I hope there is nothing TOO serious going on with the servers.

Fireheart said on March 23, 2014 at 2:40 PM
You guys are great. Believe me, no one blames you for the delays. You are doing this out of kindness, and making the wait so much fun, that we'll wait as long as we have to for the election!

LordChaos said on March 23, 2014 at 2:54 PM
Don't worry, some of us know how much pressure and hard work you have been through. Take your time! :)

Groot said on March 23, 2014 at 3:43 PM
Aww, there's no need to apologize! It was not your fault. Either way, we all support you! :)

Lady McNuggie said on March 23, 2014 at 6:13 PM

Miss Hoppenberry said on March 23, 2014 at 6:18 PM

Prince Chester Hucklecrash said on March 23, 2014 at 6:24 PM
I've played toontown since I was 5 and I can't wait to play it again :) Keep up to good work

issaccat said on March 23, 2014 at 6:38 PM
It's okay I can't wait to play the game!! I bought a laptop just for it, so hopefully it comes out soon!

Sheriff Peaches Crunchenfish said on March 23, 2014 at 6:53 PM
Apologies aren't needed. Anticipation is a virtue for me!

gumy said on March 23, 2014 at 7:02 PM

Saturn said on March 24, 2014 at 5:58 PM
It's fine! Time is flying by so fast that in no time we'll have both a new president, AND the alpha keys will come out! It's just a matter of time!~ <3
