Herpy.nu is now closed and archived - will be replaced by something new and better.

Herpy has had a good 13 year run and will never be forgotten for those of us who experienced it. Sadly the site is today unappealing and is no longer fit for the audience of 2018. The gallery will remain operational until further notice. You can follow me on Twitter for further developments. We also have a Discord server which has become the heart of the community. If you wish to join it, send me a PM over Twitter.

Kind regards,
Valcyrie

NEW HERPY - Official Release of the site

Post by Valcyrie » December 9th, 2016, 5:10 pm

Half a year has passed since our old host decided to flush our entire community down the drain, taking everything down in a matter of seconds. Friends were lost along with memories and a great part of people's lives and journals was lost and gone forever. But we stayed strong and pulled through, and 6 weeks after the takedown the first open beta of the new community was launched. Ever since we have been working to get a better and mode up-to-date forum and we have managed to return everything old Herpy had, along with some updates. We have the forum, the blogs, the galleries and the chatrooms! And Herpy thrive as a communty once more - the only sheer scaley community out there (as far as we know. And if you know differently, be quiet and dont ruin our moment of glory :roll: )!

So today, December 9th 2016, after a long struggle trying to get diferent softwares to work, we can finally and proudly announce the arrival of the so longed for gallery! You can find it here: gallery/

Along with this key feature of the site, we are now moving out of the open beta phase and into the official launch! This has been a moment I have been waiting for for a very long time and I'm very happy to finally see it happen. However, this also brings some important changes: from now on, in order to remain in the Discord chatroom and all of Herpy's off-site groups, you need a activated forum account and at least 1 introduction post. Users who do not fulfill these requirements and do not respond to contact from site staff, will be removed from the chatroom and off-site groups in due time.

We will celebrate this moment with a small little giveaway! I will give away a few dragon figurines to a lucky number of members picked at random (I will upload pics later, I'm posting this from work!). All you have to do to participate is to make a post below! Winners will be picked by Sunday the 18th december 2016.

If you like this site and community and would like to help keep it up, we are more than happy to get a donation from you, please read more here.
