Chao Island Development Update!
Hi everyone! If you weren't already aware, Chao Island is undergoing a huge redevelopment and will be jam-packed with loads of new features and information. Not much has been said besides that so far, so I think it's only fair we start to talk about what's coming and some of the work happening behind the scenes!

New Website
The current website has been in its current state for a LONG time, and is in need of freshening up. The new Chao Island will be mobile friendly, and have a lot more collated information. It will also be able to provide homes for fan mods and games such as Chao World Extended and Fusion's Chao Editor, and provide links to all other realms of the Chao community!

Chao Island Network
There are many different hangouts and content-creators for the Chao Community. To name a few you may or may not be aware of: We have the Chao Island DeviantArt group, DarkyBenji's Chao World Extended Steam fans, SapphireChao's YouTube channel, ChaoGardenBuster's Chao LiveChat Discord, Roaxes' Chao-Studios Tumblr, and a lot more! The Chao Island Network will bring all the news from these communities and more into one place, allowing you to get the latest news from everywhere at a glance and help spread and unite the Chao community!

Expanded Staff Team
The staff team has been expanding, and is still expanding! I am proud to say I have some of the most knowledgeable and talented Chao Experts on the team helping me put together an even better source for Chao Information. We have an amazing team covering Chao research, graphics, design and social media. But we are still happy for more! Please get in touch if you think you are able to help out with the site in any area.

Chao Encyclopedia
Although it may be a surprise to some of you, the current Chao Island website never fully covered everything I know about Chao, or what I envisioned it to cover. Chao Island will also be releasing a brand new Chao Wiki which will go into depth like you have never seen! You will truly be amazed at some of the things our Chao Experts have uncovered and documented!

Chao Points??Chao Island Chao
It's been a long time since Chao Island has had a point system, but the Island is stabilising and the economy is returning. The new Chao Island will introduce Rings back to the website! Rings can be gained by posting on the forums (which are also getting an update) and can also be won in competitions and site-wide events! There are also some murmurs that the Chao Dice game may be returning...

Chao Island Shop
The Chao Island Shop will also make its return! Rings can be spent on small animals and fruit just like before. There will also be rarer and more expensive items, so make sure you save your points and choose wisely. Unlike before, these shop items were purely for cosmetics and bragging rights, but now we have something even better for you to put these items to good use...

Your very own Chao!
Post counts and Ring/Point/Karma systems have always been a way to show how long you have been around and your status in general, but overall not very useful. Chao Island will be introducing a new interactive aspect where you can use your small animals and fruit to raise your very own personal Chao! This Chao will live in your profile area and be available for everyone to see. The more Rings you earn, the higher you can raises its stats with items and show off to everyone what sort of Chao you have raised!

Achievement System
As you post on Chao Island and try out the new functions of the site, you will be able to earn Achievements. These will be in the form of special profile badges and/or Ring rewards. This will always give you something to work towards and give you another way to improve your profile!

Make sure you stay on the lookout for more Chao Island news!
