Poupee Girl to Shut Down Service August 31st
One of my blog readers just informed me that Poupee hinted on shutting down service. （；^ω^）
I mean I figured the end would come eventually but I didn’t think it would be like a month after I came back According to Katherine’s blog:
Thank you for playing Poupee Girl.
We regret to inform you that the “Jewel” released on August 31st along with other items released during the middle of August will no longer be available.
New Jewel releases will end.
Also, there will be the termination of these features:
-Jewel purchasing feature
-Friend invitation and initial registration
-New releases for dress up item.
-Presents, Friend invitations, and Exchange room item will also be terminated for all Jewel buyers.
These following services will continue:
-clothes Poupee Market
-clothes picture uploads( Post clothes)
So basically on August 31st the site becomes doormant with no new item updates but you can still play dressup with your poupee or upload photos of your clothes and sell/buy whatever items you currently have. I guess the only profit that they’re trying to make anymore is from advertisements on the site (which I’m guessing they’ll put in even more of.) Additionally they will not allow any new registrations so it’s basically a graveyard for anyone who wants to relive poupee memories to play around with until they finally officially shut down the site.
Now there’s still 2 months left before D-Day:
Please note that Katharine Shop will continue to change along with the seasons.
We are planning on developing feature that changes the background.
I don’t know do they plan to just recycle old items again then? For anyone who joined late and missed items from years before? Cause if there’s no new items I imagine they’re just going to bring back old stuff. Maybe that’s good for those who joined late in the game but I’ve been on poupee since 2008 so for me this is it lol. I guess I’ll stick around until the end of August to see what’s happening but I probably will become less active and just quit along with the entire site shut down. Really ironic for this to happen just as I come back but I guess it’s ye olde’ dressup game curse – every dressup game that I was on has eventually shut down service as you can see from my categories. Poupee was the last one breathing and now it’s finally on its last leg.
Some parting thoughts from the twittersphere:

First Google Reader, then Flickr, now Poupee Girl. Any other websites going to be messed with? I'm running out of ones to spend time at.—

Ahhh no Poupee Girl is essentially closing down! It will still be playable but no new updates. Sort of saw this coming, but still, it sucks!—
