    Hi Erica, I don't remember who it was, but the person commenting on the elephant said that circus animals had been banned/outlawed in their country -- maybe, rather than political correctness or catering to over-sensitivity, Playrix decided that they didn't want to be depicting something unlawful. I think they're in a tough position, having such a broad base of users, it's bound to get a bit sticky now and again. I rather appreciate their dedication to being as inclusive and inoffensive as they can be.

    And, as Cathy pointed out, things get changed all the time for no reason we can point to (tires/boats, restaurants, the different pastry items, wildflower patches, trees, etc), so I'm not sure this is really any different. Playrix owns the box of crayons, and they do what they want with them.

    Suzy, elephants are banned in circuses here too but I don't think playrix having a circus elephant supports anything unlawful. It's not like it's a smoke shop or something. And yes, playrix reserves the right to change anything they'd like on a whim but I'm getting tired of every time someone complains that something offends them, it's gone. People need to remember that real life issues don't need to be introduced into a fantasy game, that's all. I could just see someone coming here and complaining about deer having Lyme disease and them being removed.

    Hey Erica

    Have to agree with you on this.... I also agree with other comments I dislike Clowns immensely....

    I hope they change it either back to Elephant or one of the other suggestions as that creepy clown has to go

    What annoys me most about subject of the elephant is that the commenter who was so offended by it and whose complaint about animal abuse got the attention of the powers that be - where is that commenter now? Anyone see a thank you or a note expressing their gratitude that an imaginary elephant is no longer suffering imaginary abuse?

    I haven't seen anything. It's almost as if they fly in here to register their complaint, demand changes be made to their liking and then - poof - they are gone. Never to be heard from again unless or until they have another "issue." Pheh!

    Golly, Ralph - I have no idea. Things seem to be working better this morning for me, but not sure how wide spread that is. I guess it will depend on how much interaction between friends is in the event and how far along they have gotten in the server transition.

    Okay you mob, on the suject of Clowns, let me tell you about my "Clown Dog" twice a week we attend the local children's hospital, we are allowed in the secondary and recovery wards of oncology "with vet clearance" he is an entertainer he dances, sings, talks, blows raspberrys at grumpy people, and even farts and sniffs his butt(hey the old fart joke still raises a smile). I consider myself an animal lover, also take him orienteering, so for all his needs as a working dog are fulfilled does that make me a bad person for wanting the elephant back in the circus?

    I would like to see the circus elephant back. I do not like clowns at all. They are evil. And yes, over here, animals in circus are illegal too. I do not care, it is a game! If everything has to be political correct I like to take on some refugees that come by rubberboat in my town. I have plenty space!
