Do you remember Snow Wars? If you don't, here is a refresher. You can throw snowballs at other forum members, and it shows on their avatar on their posts. You can throw a snowball, melt a snowball, or clear water from an avatar every two minutes. Progress is kept track of on an award.
Well... It's back this year, and better than ever!
This award will display how many times you have launched an attack, and how many times you have been attacked! You will get it the first time you attack or have been attacked.
As you launch more attacks, more attacks will become available to you. Some of these new attacks will cost credits. Attacks that cost credits will not count towards the two minute timer.
New Snow Forts
As you get attacked more, snow forts will become available to you. Some of these new snow forts will cost credits. Snow forts that cost credits will not count towards the two minute timer.
When loading an avatar preview, it will now scale properly instead of cropping the image. The preview will load when you press the button, rather than refreshing.
As you launch more attacks, special rewards will be given to you. These rewards include pins, post styles, and more! The post style is given after 100 attacks.
Keep an eye on this post for any items added to Snow Wars!
9/13/15 Edit: Two new (and cheap) backgrounds, VFK Credits Tickets, and previously retired forum pins have been added to the shop!
We're releasing an awesome new feature - Puzzle Answer Sharing!
Don't we already have that?
We already have a Puzzle Answer Sharing section of the forum. This is different!
All right, so what is it?
With Puzzle Answer Sharing, you can solve the VFK Crossword and Sudoku on VFK Insider! (We suggest copying your answers from in-game.) You input your answers like you would in VFK, rather than posting a screenshot. Once you have submitted the correct answer, everyone can see it!
Why should I bother with it?
For the good of the community! Oh yeah, and you get stuff.
You'll get a puzzle award with the statistics of how many puzzles you've done. You'll also get Puzzle Points! They're a type of currency you can use in the Puzzle Points Store to get some cool stuff.
What cool stuff? Right now, you can purchase a wide array of pins. You can also buy some post backgrounds! The prices on some of the items are high, but they're something to keep working for. There will also be a way to earn a small amount of points in the future.
Is the Puzzle Answer Sharing going to change?
We've got some awesome ideas on stuff to add in the future. Two of the ideas are *static hisses* and *crackling sound*.
Wait, did my megaphone go out? Let me say it again. Two of the ideas we plan on making in the future are *static hisses* and *megaphone sound drowns out*.
Hmm, guess I can't share those just yet... Aaand that megaphone seems to have died... *pulls out backup megaphone*
One other feature we hope to add in the future (in addition to the two I can't mention) is the ability to do past puzzles for a small amount of puzzle points. We'll have to wait for that until we build up a large bank of puzzles.
Is the input like VFK's?
It's similar. If you uncheck Flow Type, typing answers is very similar to VFK's. If you check it, you write line by line. When you reach the end of a line, you go to the beginning of the next. It's kind of like word wrap in a text field or Word document. Flow Type makes it easier to copy your answers from VFK.
So, how do I get to it?
Good question! (Wow, this person asking seems to have a lot of intelligent questions.) You can find it on the Site Navigation menu on the left. Alternatively, you can click here.
You can share puzzle answers on the site now, and get points for doing so. You can also view the shared answers. It's located on the Site Navigation menu. Read the full conversation above to know all the details.

P.S.: The Pin system menu got a facelift. All the buttons in the Pin and Store systems are pretty now, too.
P.S.... Again: There's a code hidden in here for free forum credits. Yay.
In case you missed the poll last week, we asked you to vote for us to open a new VFK ideas section in the forum. The votes were unanimous, so here it is! If you've got some concept art made for VFK ideas, or just want to discuss some ideas of your own, this new section is built just for you! Check it out here! Or, head over to the VFK Ideas section in the VFK Game forums.
