Herpy.nu will close down in January 2018 - 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, and years of smear campaigns have given us a reputation that has been hard to shake. We therefore made the choice to close the site and move on to a brighter future. While the forums will be archived as a memory of times of past greatness, new funds have been raised and new admins have been recruited to start working on a entire new community far away from Bad Dragon and any association with that company. The gallery will remain operational in the meantime. 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 a PM to Valcyrie.

Herpy have always been my little lovechild since I joined over a decade ago. But he grew up, and as he has aged with dignity its time for his hatchling to take over. A fresh start for a new generation in a new era.

Kind regards,

Hmm, I didn't get an activation email either. Tried registering a few hours ago and checked my email including my spam since then and haven't seen anything...

I have manually activated your account, along with all others outstanding.


I tried a few experiments setting up test accounts using different email clients. Yahoo simply forwarded the message to the spam folder, but GMail does not appear to be receiving these emails. This is now confirmed for any of you that used a GMail address to set up an account.

As I mentioned above, every account has now been manually activated and should work.

I have mentioned the GMail issue to Valcyrie for further investigation, though it may be something as simple as a random server setting or an email client that needs updating.

In the meantime, I have set all new accounts to auto-activate upon registration. Should spammers try to take advantage, I will switch the settings to admin-activation.

This should keep things running smoothly until the GMail issue is dealt with.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.
