The Snoodle Box is going to open...

Monday, March 28th

Hope you're ready for some noodley fun! They're a little jumbled up in the box right now, so if you've been peeking, you might need to flip through the pages to find the ones you liked before :)

Site Update

The Easter Garu has decided it is time to share his Eggs!
The Egg Field is now open!

The link to the Egg Field has replaced the Holiday Tree under the Community Tab.

For those of you who are new to the Easter Festivities on Aywas, the Easter Field is a simple give and take sort of game. You put an item or a pet (don't worry, there are airholes) into an egg, and place it in the field, then you are permitted to take an egg left by another user!

You may withdraw one egg every 10 minutes, but you may deposit as many as you like. There is a timer that will show up telling you when you can withdraw your next egg, but only after you deposit another egg.

Every year the staff throws in some special goodies, and you can bet that this year will be no different! Myself and the other staffers will be sneaking special goodies into the eggs throughout the event, so good luck!

HTML has been tested and works properly, however please remember to only send images and messages that are acceptable per the TOS. Should you pick up an egg that violates this, report it to any moderator and we can look into the egg field history and find whoever sent it.

We've also decided to add a few more contests! I hope you're not burned out yet, these ones are more site specific to help with the Easter Event. We are aiming to host the main festivities April 2nd, providing there are no unforeseen hiccups.

Are you interested in designing some items for Easter? We need spring items, ranging from Fauna to Energy Food and everything in between. Come and give it a shot in the Easter Item Submissions Thread.

If you're looking to get a bit fancier, we are also on the lookout for Easter HA Submissions!
These do not have to be full sets, so if you would like to enter a single item go ahead! If you do submit a set, please include a trunk!



Make sure to check out the Easter Chatter Thread for the other contests and a chance at random prizes!

Drinking Game Warning

Who left this drink on the Control Panel!?



This news post is being made to let you guys know that there is currently an issue where certain alcoholic drinks are not awarding points to pets once used. Staff is aware of the problem and are working with the coder to resolve the issue as soon as possible.

In the meantime, we wanted to make a post to alert users that feeding drinks to your pets at this time is at your own risk. Unfortunately, we are not able to tell what drinks your pet has consumed, so any glitched drinks cannot be refunded.

In addition, we do not have an entire list affected drinks and we are still gathering data on this glitch as we speak. If you find that a specific drink is not working, please visit this thread and list the name of the drinks that are not working.

Again, we're very sorry for this inconvenience, and we hope to have it resolved soon. Another news post will be made when the error is fixed. :(


This error should now be cleared up! If you experience any further issues, please visit the Glitch Thread linked above!! :D

"Who left all these Quetzal plushes here?"

This pile of Quetzal plushes would like to bring to your attention the following newspost, regarding a few changes to staff positions, along with information regarding features like Copyright and Adventure.


collectable_festivewhaleorimiplush.png
Hey guys, Hiiro here! I am sure you've seen me around site as I am just about everywhere, but I have recently been painted Blue as the newly appointed Admin in charge of Adventure!

As we all know it needs a bit of cleaning up and a little (read: a lot) TLC, so the staff thought it was best to create a new position specifically tailored to catering to the feature's needs, and to get it to be a more fun experience. I do have some ideas on the future of Adventure, and I hope it will please you guys as well!



collectable_handheldworld.png
It's no secret that Adventure has had several ups and downs over the years. Which is why I wanted to share with you some of the goals the coder and I are working towards!

Our first goal will be to have some clean up and adjustment. By this I mean that we are going to be focusing on adjusting EXP to be more reasonable and actually allow players to level up the pets they want. In addition, we will also be attempting to clean up some of the 'unnecessaries' out of Adventure. This includes getting collectibles and other non-equip items out of your Pet's Equip category (those pesky items).

But this isn't the end goal of Adventure. I know for a long time users have been wanting some of our older features that we removed or disabled (or not fully implemented) to be completed; such features like Gardening, Fishing, and Magic Quest. Note that this is not the entire list of features, but a sample (there will still be new features coming!). It is my hope that we will be able to implement these features back in Adventure for users to enjoy again! They may not be identical to their original iteration, but it is a part of excitement of all staff to have these features again, for all of us to enjoy!

But that isn't all...



magic_monsterdetector.pngmagic_skillmonster_certification.pngexplore_burntbone.png
I know many of you have enjoyed our Monster Capture feature. However, I know that our lack of psds were an issue. We opened up Monster Community Contributions asking users to help us make linearts or psds for users and artists to use. Thanks to the contributors of that thread, many members of staff, and our artists, I am pleased to announce that we have a nearly complete list of fully-based 200x200 PSDs which you can review here. This will also be added to the Monster KB article.

However, this is not a complete haul of our monsters. We are still missing two Ay-region monsters: Skeeto and Wyrm. If you would like to help us finish this list by contributing for these two monsters, please visit the Monster Community Contributions thread linked above!

But that's still not all!



collectable_naturalaywaenhancement.png
Finally, I want to address Copyright check. In addition to Adventure, I am also tasked as the new Copyright Admin! Copyright check is a bit slow right now, but I ask that people be a bit more patient. I have assembled a team of new reviewers who are excited and ready to help get that queue back down to size! No rules or alterations are being made to the process, so you do not have to worry about learning any new rules.

I think that sums up this long and lengthy newspost. Thank you for reading, and I look forward to working on these projects with you!

Please be sure to check out the awesome News Post below this one! You don't wanna miss Snoodle Pre-sales, Castaway Canyon info, and all the other goodies down there!

Trashland Commences... into Castaway Canyon! And m

Site Update

Goto News Post



We are happy to announce the winner to the Trashland Background Contest... Synthaphone (#15786), with their gorgeous rendition of Castaway Canyon!

Castaway Canyon is now in the process of being created into an adventure area. As soon as we have a new batch of items from our item artist, as well as our contest items, pets, and monsters all chosen, we'll be releasing the new world to you. What excitement!





We have a cute little melo sitting in the Cash Auctions! If you are interested in bidding on this melo the link to the auction is here.

This melo is a result of a bug where an incorrect/unselected GCC artist was able to claim a GCC ticket. If you were affected by this bug, please contact me (#15). The unwanted design will be auctioned in this fashion and you will be refunded your original ticket.





The Escrow Commission Panel Update has gone live!

The "Escrow" feature on the Commission Panel allows players to conduct three way trades, between an artist, USD buyer, and a GP buyer. Imagine a scenario where a GP buyer has GP or items and wants to commission an artist. They find a player with USD (the USD buyer) who is willing to pay for the artist's commission in return for the GP Buyer's items or GP. These two players can conduct a transaction with an artist through the Commission Panel.

You can read about the Escrow Feature here. To begin an escrow, you (the USD buyer) simply enter the ID of the player who will be paying you GP/items when submitting a commission request to an artist.

A new forum has opened for those seeking or offering escrows in the Trading Post section. Please be sure to use the [SEEKING USD] and [OFFERING USD] headers so your fellow players can quickly determine what your thread is about.







A new item, the Metal Takeout Box, has been added to the GP Shop for 25 GP. If you have ever wanted a metal (no edits) Faux or Snoodle, then this item is for you!






The SCC feature is completed, tested, and ready to go! Right now, we are ensuring that players who have been waiting in line for their SCC art are the first ones who submit to the new feature. After we have confirmed the waiting players have had their SCCs entered into the new feature for completion, we will open the feature up to artists to join. Finally, when we have a team of artists, we will open it up for submission.

A Silver Custom Crystal counts as a ticket to the feature. By submitting your SCC, you can select artists you'd like to create your pet and write its description. Like GCC and MDT, an artist from your selection can claim your ticket and work on it.

After the art is completed and approved by the customs team, the artist is paid and your pet is automatically uploaded into your account. No more waiting!

The statue items are artwork commission items that allow you to commission artwork only through the SCC panel without the use of an SCC. The "Magical Species Statue" has a small chance of uploading the completed artwork for you like an SCC does.






Speaking of Snoodles, the brand new box feature for it was completed this morning. After we do some brief testing this afternoon we will be sending out messages to the artists with approved snoodles to start loading the box up as early as this evening, provided there are no bugs!

We expect the box will release as soon as all the artists have loaded in their sets, so we're doing a little pre-sale for it. Cup of Snoodles will be $25 like the Fox in the Box when the box is ready to release, but while we're loading in sets you can buy a pre-sale Cup of Snoodles for $20. The other snoodle items are on sale as well.

If you want to get in on the action early, then pick up your pre-sale cup and start getting ready for the release! We'll let you know with twenty four hours in advance when the feature is going to launch so you can be ready with your pre-sale cups.





Some quick housekeeping notices -

PMBC List Deadlines have been increased to seven days.
PMBC has received a raise to $4.50.
PLBC has received a raise to $5.50.
PMBC Predicts have received a new cap of $4.00.
GCC Design and MDT Design payments have been set to Tuesday.

That concludes this Easter Update! The Easter Field should be open within the week, as our coder is busy with some back-end things that unfortunately need attention. We also hope to have another Currency Gathering event to add to our Easter Festivities to make up for all the delays we have been facing lately.
Good Luck and Happy Easter!

explore_nutsandbolts.png

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!



collectable_magicalspeciesstatue.pngcollectable_speciesstatue.png

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

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!

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!
