As I’m sure some of you noticed during the campaign preview video, the top right corner didn’t display woots and there was a “Favorite this world!” button when beating the campaign level.
This is because woots will be replaced by “Favorites” and “Likes”.
Currently, woots are completely meaningless. Anyone can theoretically spend an infinite amount of woots on a level, either by coming back each day, rejoining or even using extra accounts. People woot to get edit rights, woot to get “gold” in a bot level, woot to announce them leaving the level, or simply woot because they have 10 of them and they don’t know what to do with them.
Because of this, woots aren’t rare in any way and therefore this “currency” is meaningless. Woots were meant to be a display of quality, to praise a world, but when it was first implemented it missed the mark due to its design. Therefore, woots are being replaced with “Likes” and “Favorites”
How do “Likes” and “Favorites” work?
The system will work similar to YouTube. On the top right in a level and in the lobby you will see the amount of Likes/Favorites a world has. You can “Like” a world, and you can “Unlike” it. You only get to spend 1 Like per level, ever, making it much more meaningful than woots.
Similarly, you can “Favorite” a world, which means you will also be able to keep track of all your favorite worlds and easily find them again.
When Liking/Favoriting a world, no notification will be displayed in chat. We want it to be meaningful, and liking (and then sneakily unliking!) a world to get edit rights is not a display of quality, which is what this system is for.
What does this mean for my worlds?
Woots will go and Likes and Favorites will take its place. This means your woots are no longer displayed and everyone has a fresh start.

We have been hyping about an update for a while now, and we wanted to give you guys a sneak peak at what we were so excited about.
Don’t worry, we didn’t reveal everything! There will still be plenty to be surprised about.
Hi guys, I’d like to start off with the following: DON’T. EVER. GIVE. AWAY. YOUR PASSWORD. TO ANYONE. EVER. Ok? Ok, now for the actual post. It has recently come to our attention that there’s a lot of phishing going on. What’s phishing you ask? Simply put, someone tries to gain your trust to steal your sensitive information. In the case of Everybody Edits, people are pretending to be (secret) admins/mods and use some excuse to ask for your password. For example: If you give away your password, they will steal your account and abuse it. So don’t do it! The staff will never, ever, ask for your passwords, so don’t give them out to anyone! These are people trying to “hack” you. If someone sends you a PM like this, report them using the /report command with a link to the PM chat history. For anyone attempting this, this is a serious offence, you will be IP banned if you attempt this, and possibly have all your accounts deleted. Also, there is no such thing as secret mods, so don’t listen to anyone saying they are. If you’re in doubt whether you’re talking to a staff member, the staff members’ name ingame will be yellow/gold or purple. Also, the list of staff members can be found here: http://eeforums.cf/viewtopic.php?id=28424 Also, DON’T. EVER. GIVE. AWAY. YOUR PASSWORD. TO ANYONE. EVER. NOT OUTSIDE OF EE EITHER! Stay safe The Everybody Edits team
Today is the 21st of June, which means it’s officially summer! (Ok that was yesterday but shhh!)
Time to kick it off with the…
2015 Summer EXCLUSIVE pack!
This pack is only available for energy from today until the 1st of August 2015!
This pack features:
– A new orange aura, regular and Builders Club!
– 5 new decorations:
– Two new smilies:
– The tourist smiley
– The sun-burnt smiley
Of course we also had to add a few fixes.
– Selecting blocks and backgrounds while holding down a number key now always only requires 1 click.
– You can now assign blocks to the 0 key.
– Made the phrasing of the world options consistent.
– Re-ordered a bunch of blocks/backgrounds on the block bar to make them consistent with the rest.
– Morphable blocks now show up as “morphable” instead of “rotatable”.
– The “ladders” category has been renamed to “climbable”
– Fixed an issue where guests were spammed to register to be able to chat when resizing the window.
– Fixed a silly typo in the guest lobby (costum–>custom).
– Fixed guest side buttons overlapping the minimap button.
– Increased the chances of getting a magic coin a bit more.
– Not having chat now also disables PMing whomever you like.
– Added a word filter to user creation.
– Using the teleport command now says *SYSTEM* instead of *WARNING*.
– Polished the beige brick background.
This is not the big thing we keep hyping yet, but there’s nothing wrong with spoiling you a little bit ;)
As you may have noticed, EE has undergone some major changes on several levels, of which its staff is one.
While I’m sure you guys know most of us by name, we’ve been receiving many questions about who we actually are, what it is like being part of the staff, and especially, what we actually do for EE; we want to make this clear. Because we like being part of the community as much as any other player, I’ll start off by providing an overview of the staff, some basic personal details, and the role of each respective member. After that, I’ll provide some insight into our vision of the game, list things you can expect from us and what we expect from you, and finally, answer the legendary question of “pls caen i be mod how 2bcme mod?”. I hope you’re in for a long read.

Hi everyone, today I’ve had the pleasure of becoming a new guardian to the game!
A little bit about myself: I’m 30 years old, an IT professional (system administrator, technical application management (DBA), PHP developer) and I love to play musical instruments..
Please don’t spam me with pointless questions; I do like to be a little nuts sometimes, but I’m also very serious about a lot of stuff. I’m just a guardian, not a moderator, so I can’t do stuff other then keeping peace or kick spammers.
Enjoy the game and be nice!
