Hullo. Just so you're aware, we were down because of some naughty users abusing site resources.
Don't forget that if you hold down the enter key or f5 (or any similar button), use a program, or rapidly push enter or f5 (or any similar button) on any of the Aywas games, you will be banned and your account will not be returned.
Doing the above is considered a violation of the TOS by consuming so many resources that it causes the server stress. To prevent being banned from Aywas for abusing site resources, make sure the page always loads in between plays.
Also, you may notice that some pets are missing. We're getting some backups and we'll restore the missing pets soon.
BTW - in case you're curious, my current username and Visark's is the result of a joke, so don't worry about it, lol. xD

Sorry for the lateness of it all! (:

Hiring SCC Artists
Do you draw pretty SCC pets? Want to get paid for drawing pretty SCC pets?
I'm looking for some new SCC artists. Like with our other SCC artist, you get assigned SCC requests and work with the buyer until they're happy.
Interested in this job? It pays in either GP or $$$, depending on your preference. Send me a PM (user #1) with examples of SCCs you made or digital art you've made from scratch. Please make sure that you have a good grip on coloring, markings, lineart, and anatomy. :)
Silver Artists Page!
Still working on it. :)
If you have a silver waiting on Kontenia that hasn't been started yet, you can switch your request to another artist if you prefer, just let me know.

Guess the Number
This one has a combination lock. The instructions next to it say, "Input the full name of the correct Human Avatar clothing item."
User #270 was the first to guess "Brown Necromancer Bustle". They open the present and find...
For those of you who are only now being introduced to the Santas Bag, it's a very, very rare December holiday present item that came about last year. It's the glittering rock of items - you can pull any item you want out of the bag, one use.
Take your shot at a Santas Bag by being online December 25th. One user will be selected from everyone online at each of the following times exactly: 12:00 AM, 12:00 PM, 11:59 PM.

December Xaoc Contests!
It's that time again!
This is the gorgeous Xaoc custom Winter (#5874) won from our September contest (made by Balu #484).
Want a chance at one of your own? Continuing with our trend of giving this month, you have not one, but two opportunities to win a Xaoc and other goodies because we are running two contests instead of one!
Not artistically inclined? Worn out from NaNo or not interested in writing a story? Then you might be intrigued by our fun Holiday Wishlist Contest. Tell us 25 things your Xaoc would want and it could be joining you in your lair!
As a bonus, we are also running a Holiday Spirit Art Contest. This is your more standard pet contest revolving around a theme, so I encourage you to give it some thought and wow us!
You may enter both contests but can only place in one, so you have lots of opportunities for prizes. I hope you guys have fun with this and I can't wait to see what you come up with. Enjoy!

Obviously, we love pets! I was thinking about something we could sponsor for this holiday season and came across the Friends of Animals Spay/Neuter Program. That's where you can find vets in your area that accept their spay/neuter vouchers, and someone online buys the voucher for you so you don't have to pay for the operation.
Vets these days are expensive, and spay/neuter is no exception. If you have a pet that needs spay/neutering but you're not sure if you can afford it, check out the Friends of Animals site and put your zip code in. Follow the instructions (contact the veterinarian to confirm the veterinarian's participation and ask about any additional charges) then write down the vet's information.
Send me an email (email@example.com) with the vet's information, some information about your pet, and a photo of the pet with "Aywas" somewhere nearby (for example, on a piece of paper next to the pet). I may select you for a free voucher :)
I'm going to pay for about 10-12 free vouchers depending on turn out.
Your purchase of GP goes toward events like this ♥
Keep making people (and pets) smile!

The Aywas staff team has some new members! I want to thank everyone for applying because we had a huge turnout this time around and it means a lot that so many people are interested in helping out the site. After reviewing the applications, we found five people that we think will be a great addition to our mod force! Without further ado, we'd like to introduce you to your new moderators:
Feel free to nag them with questions and help them break their newly green names in!
(Also, psst--the December Xaoc contest will open tomorrow, so keep your eyes out for that!)

Welcome to December - Part 2
I swapped around the entries from the GP and BP threads. You get the highest prize possible (EG: If you submitted for GP and got into the BP Shop, or if you submitted for BP and got into the GP Shop).
I have a couple pets saved from the thread also that I want to use in the forest, so a couple others are in limbo until then. :)
GP Shop Pets!
BP Shop Pets!
Monthly Potion and Premium Item!
The December 2010 potion is hanging out in the BP Shop for 400k, and the monthly premium item is a Basic Stocking. :)
Trophies have been awarded, after a bit of a chaotic experience last night. XD I don't have much else to say, except what do you think of Yasu's new Nav idea?
Would you prefer a nav like this? If you've noticed we're slowly running out of room in some of our sections (Archives and Shopping for example) so this would fix that problem :)
