The Celestial Ramrin

You will be able to find this shiny Ramrin in the BP Shop until we get a new raw! If your Ramrin did not win, you may do whatever you wish with the design, please contact Kaiyo (#489) if your design won, or if you were chosen for the previous voting so you can collect your prize!

We would like to apologize for the delay of certain site features, we are trying to pull ourselves back together so here are a few brief updates!

clothing_cybergoggles.pngcollectable_raygun.png
Raffle Crystal and Trivia have both fallen quite the ways behind, Trivia has been updated (see the bottom of this post), however Raffle Crystal is being a bit uncooperative and we hope to have this fixed up in the next few days.

Contributor thread is behind several months, this is because we are having some problems with promotions sticking, nobody wants to get their purple and then lose it, so we are trying to get this under control unfortunately our coder is busy with some important back end subjects.

We know that you were promised a St. Patrick's day event, however due to some technical difficulties this didn't happen. We are planning something small in the near future to try to make up for this :(



easteregg2.pngeasteregg6.png

We are planning several specialties for Easter, these news posts should come later on or tonight, expect a lot of contests so get your colorin tools ready!

Art Gallery

game_gallery.png

The art gallery has been judged!
The theme was Valentine's Day* and we received some adorable entries that I could just squish!

Here are our featured winners:







They won:



Congratulations!

The current theme is Easter*!
Official Aywas stock is not permitted for this theme.

Showcase this holiday with any medium your heart desires, just keep it Aywas-related. <3
This is also a starred (*) theme, meaning you can enter it even if you've won recently or plan on entering upcoming contests.

Good luck!


Since things got a little wonky, we've decided (after this contest) to extend the Art Gallery entry time to two weeks!
And since we missed some themes, we've played with the dates for you!


March 28th - April 10th: Wibbit*
April 11th - April 24th: Cut Throat Cooking
April 25th - May 8th: Aywas Coffee Shop


If you ever want to submit an Art Gallery theme idea, we're always taking suggestions here.
Thank you!

Jura and Kazoo

Site Update

Goto News Post

You just saw the Snoodle released a few days ago, but now we have two more pets that are storming in! 2016 is promising to be a big year for new species, isn't it?



The first pet available is the Kazoo, which you voted as second favorite in the poll! It's now available in all the Trinket items.



But that's not all! Due to a fantastic push by Jamew, our next prehistoric pet has come to play also!



The Jura is the next "Prehistoric Portal" pet, which can be gained by playing the fossil collection game in the Museum. Interested in seeing the net Prehistoric Pet? Well, you'll have to submit fifty edited bases for the Jura to the Edit Repository! Please bear in mind that entries for the Jura must be a minimum of 15% edited.



Who's dreaming about the new SCC art feature? Excited to be able to use your SCC to commission a new pet from fantastic artists? It's coming very soon - we're putting the finishing touches on it and ironing out the last few bugs. Get excited!

New Alt-Raffi, Restyle Brush, and Adventure Pets!

Pets

Goto News Post

magic_foxtailbrush.png

I am very excited about this news post. If you have a love for adventure pets, pet coloration submissions... or even Raffis... *winks*, you may want to be sure to read on!

The item known previously as the Foxtail Brush has been renamed and is now the Restyle Brush.

Why the name change? Well this brush isn't just for foxy genera anymore! There's a new spindly legged alternate lineart wobbling into the picture!

AltRaffi_200.png

Introducing the alternate Raffi!

This lineart can now be made using the Restyle Brush, in addition to the original alt-Orimi lineart that was unique to this custom creating item:

Alt_Orimi_200.png


How do you get this Restyle Brush? Well you submit pet coloration designs in the pet coloration submissions forum! For every 5 designs you submit that are accepted, you get a Restyle Brush. To read more about the other prizes associated with this forum, see this thread.

Over time we may add even more alt-linearts to this custom maker. If we do, it will be relatively infrequent, but keep this in mind!

In addition to welcoming the new alt-Raffi to the site, I wanted to give an update on the Adventure Pet releases that I'm sure some of you have noticed disappeared for a while. We had quite a slow down in submissions and could not sustain both the adventure pet releases and the pet shop pets with the forum. We hope that with the new alt-Raffi, submissions will increase to the point of sustaining both of those features once again. :3

We're aware that there are designs that have been accepted that are pending their payment and/or item rewards and we wanted to mention that all of those will be paid and caught up with tomorrow!


And with that, here are some new lovely adventure pets eagerly awaiting homes in your lair!

In addition, the pet coloration submissions forum raffles have been drawn! These raffles were from the months of January and February!

Congratulations to Drakhys (#1379) for winning a Bronze Custom Crystal!

Congratulations to Amber (#145) for winning a Blue Custom Orb!


If you want to design some Adventure pets, go and post them in their respective threads here! There's also a chance that the designs accepted from that forum will go into the Pet Shop! Remember, you can earn SP!

If your design is in the new adventure release please contact Kyu (#1010) for your free copy.

I learnt nothing from Jurassic Park

Site Update

Goto News Post



Those of you who recognise the egg at the top of this news post will probably have mixed feelings. A lot of what led up to my becoming customs admin happened when this limited time custom item was in effect - and due to some fumbling, a lot of people didn't get their customs.


I want to make that right.


That is why until March 27th 2016, the Super Speshul Egg is being brought out of retirement. Be warned - when it retires this time, it's forever.

If you are one of the people with a design in queue, please check that you still want this design - I will begin accepting from this queue tomorrow to enable those who want to possible re-do their design have the opportunity =)





A quick note I've been asked to mention on behalf of our resident Crystal Checker - removing the smoke and eyeglow is 9% of edits.

Site Update

Goto News Post

Welcome to the marvelous month of March!

You might look at the calendar and wonder why I'm welcoming you nine days in.
As Eve mentioned, my archnemesis--known as "offline life"--bested me for a bit. Without going into too many personal details, I think I've conquered it for the foreseeable future. :3
Enough about me, let's get to the goodies!


These lucky nine get to call themselves March's GP Shop pets and are springing forward toward you!

If you colored one of these fun pets, please contact Kyu (#1010) for your payment!
Make sure to include your PayPal address if you are opting for the USD option.
We will also be collecting pet PSDs directly from the thread, so you no longer have to send them in. However, please make sure you keep the links active for two weeks (at least until mid-March) so we have time to snag 'em for science
!

The striking Essence of March 2016 was made in honor of Poseidon and the sea.
A swig from this tumultuous bottle will transform your pet into one of the monthly colorations above at random.

A Few Quick Updates

Site Update

Goto News Post



- Love Letters should have been removed from Adventure now. If you're still finding them after this news post, please let me know so I can figure out what I did wrong!

- Since things haven't quite gone to plan this is your final countdown until the shop closes. Come what may I will be emptying at approximately 11:59pm tonight (March 9th).

- Love Letters are still sendable - but please remember points do NOT carry over to next year! If you have points to use then please do so by the shop's closing time. Any letters sent after that time will be points wasted (and I know that no one wants that!)


And a quick personal one:
- If you have your custom processed by Crystal Check, please link it in your User Notes when you create the custom. Using the URL (example: http://www.aywas.com/crystal_check/review/8505/) is perfectly fine as I can see all reviews, and is actually preferable to screencaps =)

This will help ensure that customs get processed faster and hopefully get these queues to where they should be at long last =)
