Some players have asked if they can donate custom pets or custom pet designs to the auction. These donations can be made on this thread. Thank you for your support. I posted an update to the rant thread regarding Amazon's response for those who are interested in following it. I will be posting another one shortly.
It is with a heavy heart that Aywas brings you the opportunity to participate in the cash auctions of hundreds of custom pets. The reason for this is that the previous owner of the pets has caused us to fall nearly $5000 in debt due to chargebacks. I have a rant thread that goes into some detail regarding the situation. We have to seek out a way to make ourselves whole for the damage done to us--both in terms of money lost and potential damage to the good standing of our payments account. As you can understand, if the chargebacks (which now number over a hundred in the past two months from this one individual) cause us to lose our payment accounts, that would be devastating. A high number of chargebacks can cause payment processors to cancel accounts with a company due to high risk. Our PayPal account is not currently affected by this problem, but I have no idea if the volume of chargebacks on Amazon Payments could affect it in the future. The USD Auctions page reflects all of the custom pets that we have decided to reclaim from the player who filed the chargebacks. You can pledge a bid on the pet by entering an amount and an invoice e-mail address. Please note: 1. Bids made through USD auctions cannot be canceled. 2. Please place a bid only if you are committed to buying the pet if you win it. 3. Pets come "as is" as we have no idea what rules may have been placed on them. We will help mediate any issues between the new owner and any previous owners. 4. We would prefer accepting payment on our Amazon Payments account to prevent the delinquent account (it's in the negative) from being sent to collections and/or legal action taken against us for not having the disputed funds. If it cannot be paid through this, we will accept PayPal. 5. All auctions end in approximately seven days. End dates are listed on the auctions themselves. 6. When the auctions are over, your total bill (all your auctions won) will be invoiced to you. Upon successful payment, all pets won will be placed into your lair. Some highlights below: It is not a usual thing for Aywas to take repossession of pets on a banned account. This situation is unique, grave, and we hope will not have to be repeated in the future. Ultimately, we appreciate any support, because this is one of the worst situations we have found ourselves in. As a final note, any comments making threats toward the individual who filed the chargeback will be removed without notice. This happened on tumblr before and it will not be permitted here. Believe me, I am just as angry as you are, but threats will only make things worse, and they cannot be tolerated.
As many will remember, late last year I wrote about a few issues that the customs area of the site was having due to Graymare's injury preventing her from working as often or as long as she previously had. I'm sad to say that as that injury hasn't shown signs of improvement, Gray has chosen to step down from her position as Custom Pet admin. Having worked closely with Gray on the custom pet aspect of the site, I was asked if I would step up to the plate and I have agreed to give it a shot alongside my other positions with Custom Items and Copyright. There will no doubt be some teething problems as I get settled, and I ask if you can be patient with me while I get my mind around which lines are legacy, and "what do you mean I do that too?" moments. I know it means likely a few frustrations as you throw URLs at my head, but I hope those will be few and far between. My priority right now is clearing out the custom queues, and then I will turn towards the mountainous task of the crystal check (which I will address in another news post in the near future). I know that people are waiting in all areas, and I hope to resolve that soon. While I can never fill Gray's hooves, I hope that I can do some justice to the position and keep everyone rolling in beautiful customs.
And seize the day with one of our jubilant BP Shop pets!

However, please make sure you keep the links active for two weeks (at least until mid-May) so we have time to snag 'em for science!

Coding Corner A monthly update from behind the scenes. We're coming off of quite a busy programming month and hope that you enjoyed all of the updates! Now that some of our mad dashing behind the scenes has stabilized, you can look forward to more regular developments in other areas. :3 We have quite a few things planned for the month, but one thing that I specifically wanted to mention was that we're carrying the egg theme through May, so the Easter/Spring Painter & associated Seasonal Shop (selling a few fun inexpensive treats for BP) will be opening this week. There'll be a separate post for all of those goodies, so just keep an eye out! Be sure to also check out the Early May Updates if you haven't read up on them already. Cheers to May! - Eri
