A monthly update from behind the scenes. See below posts for lots of goodies! More specific updates from me on upcoming content coming soon. Cheers! - Eri
This is going to be a very big news post, so please read through it carefully! There is a lot of important information contained within. - About the "Manual Payments" for EU/UK Customers As many users will recall from last December, due to the news of certain tax legislations being put into place across the pond in the EU, Aywas was put in a position where we felt it was best to restrict EU based transactions in the GP/USD Shop to manual email only. After prolonged and careful analysis of the legislation by our outside consultants, we feel that Aywas does not fall under EU jurisdiction - and as such we will be re-opening use of the automatic payment USD Shop to EU users. This may be a permanent or temporary change, depending on how the lay of the law changes regarding future tax treaties negotiated between the US and the EU. We will be watching carefully to ensure the safety of the site and our users. - You were recently introduced to the new breeding admins, Kyu and Mauri. Breeding staff had been holding off on informing the userbase about some BC edit percentage changes that were decided about a week and a half ago, but now you can find out! As you may recall, in the past, Breeding Coin breedings had 30% edits spread across all offspring. This is no longer the case. All offspring produced by Breeding Coins will have roughly 30% edits, unless you indicate otherwise with a Metal Ball add-on OR you breed two un-edited site pets. We hope that this change will be enjoyed by the userbase. - Fox Nets have started stocking in the USD Shop for $10 each. We hope this price is a good one for you! Speaking of Fauxes, we wanted to let you know that Faux designs that have not been claimed by nets after three weeks (so four weeks total past submission) will be re-purposed into customs for the Adopt a Custom feature. Please note that we haven't yet selected an admin or mod to run this feature yet, but that is what you can expect from it soon. - Do you remember this little guy from the Pride Blind Auction? We're happy to announce that the blind auction resulted in $760 being raised for various LGBT charities around the world. And we're even more proud to announce that Kyria ♥ Nesta (#31172) are the winners of the auction! - This month's Jeweled Crystal bases were done by runeowl (#68592), so let's take a look at what awesome stuff runeowl has for you! Also, remember, if you want to do a month's worth of bases, feel free to contact me. Did you know that if you have Paintbrushes, you can pick up Jeweled Designs from Firehazard? This service is sponsored by the game administration, so check it out if you like the bases and want some premades! Have a good September!
Evening everyone, This is a newspost to say that as of tonight I will be resigning from my position as breeding admin for the site. Five years is a lot of time to spend as an administrator on a petsite, but I am so thankful that I had all of that time to spend helping the site. I made great friendships and bonds with the users here, and have a lot of fond memories to take away from it. I remember when Holiday coins came out and made seasonal tidings all year long, and when EBCs took over the site in evil droves. I remember when breeding add-ons burst into the scene -- look at how many we have now! I've seen the queue explode many a time, but the hardworking staff has always tackled the load and made my job exciting. I thank them for their support all this time, and am glad I had each and every one over the years to work with. Mauri at #1010, aided by her partner-in-crime Kyu, will be heading your breeding needs from now on. Please be advised that any correspondence from now on will go to the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org Any breeding staff applications, questions about breedings, issues with breedings, refunds, etc. will now be addressed by them at #1010, or will go that email. I know the two of them will continue to lead breeding staff into a bright future. There'll be some shifting and maybe some bumps in the road when we transition over to the pair, so please bear with -- there are a lot of keys to turn over! I like to keep things short and sweet, so thanks to all of you (re: the awesome userbase) for making my time here worthwhile. Thank you to the other staffers for all the fun, and especially to Slash for letting me be the resident Paleo nerd that lives in the Phoenix tree, ready to steal your eggs. ...Well, that much may not change.
