The reason for this is the harassment I've been receiving from some members of this site. I can't go six months without someone contacting me feigning interest in Novul, before immediately asking for free help with their own site's tangle of code. I'm fairly certain some of them have been the same people under different usernames, so, beware.

Someone literally emailed me "so if you aren't using Mysidia to develop anymore, can I have your source code?" - look, I shouldn't need to explain how rude that is. First, anything I custom wrote I can still use on my custom framework. Second, it's not for sale. Third, and most obviously, it most definitely would not be free.

My source code for old Novul is the same as all of yours - Mysidia's core. I released plenty of addons that have been proven to work and those that have them working are more than capable of helping anyone figure out minor installation hiccups. I left you all with very good instructions.

My custom code, the stuff developed for Novul specifically, has not and will not ever be offered as an addon or put up for sale. It's been a joint effort between my girlfriend and I to develop not only a breeding system, but the means to swap out parts and customize colors while not making entirely separate breeds. It's far beyond the original scope of Mysidia which is why I choose to keep it to myself.

That isn't to say I haven't helped people who are already successful in their own endeavors and have had the means to pay. For example, an ARPG from DeviantArt commissioned me to create this template generator and it cost them $600 in total: I also coded their breeding system, another $500, and a random chance game, yet another $150. I will not go any lower than $12/hour and I like to complete coding commissions within a month of starting, but before I can even start I need the person commissioning me to know what they even really want.

I'm mostly just upset that I have been contacted in unsolicited ways under false pretenses far too many times. If someone came to me directly about their own site and waved real money at me, that would be one thing, but no one from Mysidia ever has. It has always been "can't wait for Novul" and not even a minute later "hey so can you help me figure this out...?" that usually has nothing to even do with my addons. Just because I offered free addons does not mean I'll do free charity work for you. I am not interested in your site, and if you don't have the means to pay me to be, stop wasting my time.

It is besides the point that Mysidia, as a framework, is dead in the water and six years have passed without so much as a security update. I lost any fire I had to make addons for abandonware. As for the rest of you? If you are PHP savvy, beware of those that want your help without offering compensation. If you are not PHP savvy, please try learning to code, you will be doing yourself a favor. And to both: I do highly recommend anyone serious about developing a pet site to learn PHP and build their own custom framework. Even by just using up to date coding best practices, you will immediately make your site so much more secure.

For copyright reasons, I no longer post updates here. Novul is still in development but definitely not with Mysidia. I will gladly come back to investigate should the owner actually release a new version, but until then --

-- Best wishes! Good luck with your projects!
Please do not contact me. I cannot offer tech support on any coding I've done prior to 2018.
