Hello! You might've noticed there have been changes since you last logged in.
I made this thread to be a quick recap of the transition.
For any help or questions with the new site, your fastest answer can be found by opening a help ticket. Click your username in the top right corner, and select “I Need Help” for assistance from the Solia support team!
What happened to the old Solia site?
The old version of Solia closed on the morning of September 7, 2017. It had a over a 9-year run, starting back in June 2008 (about when Google Chrome was first released).
While outdated, this annoucement offers more info.
What happened to my items, gold, and luna?
If you recover your old Solia character, you should see your gold and luna transferred to that character immediately.
Your old items were part of the old site, a different avatar system, and largely incompatible with new features like recoloring, changes to layering, and the move away from items with poses.
Items released after May 2016 are being transferred as a thank you to those that supported Solia during the last year+ the old site was live. If those items were donation items with multiple poses, there's a small donation to break the item into individual items per pose.
Transferred items will appear in your inventory bank, though items that need broken into poses can be found by clicking the "Breakable Items" button in your inventory page. All transferable items have been transferred, and a user poll decided that items that could not be transferred will be converted into gold based on market value and given in place of the item.
What happened to my profile/comments?
Profiles have been replaced with each user having a personal land in game. You can craft a sign for comments, build a house, barn, greenhouse, farm, fish, and can look forward to lots of pretty items to decorate with, including user designed items.
Theres a ton of new features in the works, and some already available in beta. This thread by Case (Iscariot) offers regularly updated news of changes to come. For now, check out these helpful guides and watch for more features and guides soon.

Reintroduce yourself here! Feel free to talk about the changes! I've had a ton of fun with the item designer and recoloring so far. Obviously, losing your items, time, and donations isn't something everyone will want to keep playing after, and you're welcome to share how you feel about it. All I ask is that you keep it civil.
