Just a few quick Teo PSD things!
As more and more Teos are being released, my Dropbox is starting to feel the strain of hosting all the PSDs. As such on July 31st I will be removing all current PSDs to make space for the new ones.
I will be keeping the PSDs on my computer, and can temporarily upload a PSD to my public folder for users to collect if they have lost the original download, or have recently purchased it and not been given the PSD. I will also be ensuring they are all uploaded to the Breeding drive for the artists (at least half of the Gen1 teos are already there, but I will re-upload my entire folder to ensure none I have are missed).
Any Teos released on and after July 31st will still be handed out the same way I have been =)
On the note of future releases - we still have plenty of Teo sets to be released with the GP bonus! We've had and still have sets from an amazing number of artists that we know people climb over each other to get slots with - so if you have been holding back because you weren't sure if we had more, hold back no longer! Take them before I run away with them all and have Slash chasing me down XD
Which leads me to our gorgeous Teo artists - this is a request that when Slash accepts your set that you PM the PSDs to me, with the name you want the set to be known by. This ensures that users get their PSDs as soon as possible, without having to impact on your time or storage space ^^

Idolias and Artists, oh my!
Good afternoon! I have a few little announcements during your regularly scheduled breeding season. :3
As a little extra bonus, from the 4th until the 10th, when breeding season ends, all BC breedings that are submitted with an Idolia Mask have a 50% chance of receiving an Idolia, instead of the usual 25%! If faceless babies are your thing, then this is your chance!
We are also looking for interested folks that wish to be on the contract LBC or BC teams! There are no set 'spots' -- this is more of an interest check to see if folks would apply and to see if we can expand our team with more talent. Pay is $5/baby for LBC, and $15/baby for BC, with $20/baby for edit potion breedings.
If you are interested please look here, in Breeding Chat for the applications, and send them to email@example.com for review. If we're interested in your work, we will contact you as soon as possible.
For any other questions, please don't hesitate to drop an email to the above address!

Welcome to a new team member
Let's give a warm welcome to our new developer, DDV (#60843)!
DDV is a professional who will be working on our database, server, and code optimization. We hope to see great gains in speed and efficiency with his work. We may also be seeing big changes in infrastructure, which could include a move into cloud servers instead of our dedicated server set up. There's a lot ahead of us!
The current sale is an excellent way to support this optimization project while getting the most bang for your buck. This is going to be a very expensive project, so your help is definitely needed to make sure we can afford to bring Aywas up to speed with what's expected from web technology while also being able to handle usual funding costs.
Here's a bright future!

Hybrids, incoming! And a new species!
Breeding Season has officially started with the introduction of our new hybrids! This means that the Breeding Season purchasing bonuses will be valid until July 10, 2014 at 11:59 PM.
Soli x Chromo
These creatures are very docile and enjoy spending their time drifting about on the waves. While they're capable of defending themselves with neurotoxins in their tentacles, they'd rather not.
Unus x Plio
Jadoni are energetic aquatic beasts that can be found having competitions with each other to see who can jump the highest out of the water or who can jump over dams.
This means that Breeding Coins and Breeding Coin packages will be available in the GP Shop until July 10, 2014 11:59 PM. Enjoy them!
Something new has made its way into the rare ranks of Ay! The new Orbkin species is an alternate use for the Embryo Pearl.
This means that Embryo Pearls can make a metal (no edits) Orbweaver SCC, or a 50% edited Orbkin rare pet. If you don't remember how to get an Embryo Pearl, they are a reward that breeding artists earn when they turn their lists in on time.
Teo Eggs are still in stock for their promotional tier. Grab one before July 10, 2014 at 11:59 PM.
Teo artist applications are still designated open.
Enjoy breeding season!

Forum Post Count & more!
Extra, extra! Two quick announcements for you. :3
The first is that forum post counts now appear to be fixed!
So, if yours had gotten reset during the glitched period over the weekend, it should be back to normal.
If you are a veteran player and were around for Version 1, you'll probably notice that your post count is higher than it has been recently. This is because Yasu changed how the post count script was written, and it now includes posts that had been "reset"/not counted when we switched forums years ago.
The second announcement is a personal one!
I am very rarely away from Aywas for more than a few hours, but I am packing up my things tonight and traveling for a few days to attend a wedding. I will be back on Sunday, so if you need immediate assistance while I'm away, please contact another staff member. (I will have WiFi, and will still be checking in, but I won't be able to do much.) Otherwise, I'll get to your request as soon as I can upon my return.
See you soon! <3

Teo Ticket - July's Premium Item
The premium monthly item has been set!
When you collect your item this month, you will find a Teo Ticket.
We're trying out something a little different this month! The Teo Ticket is essentially a raffle ticket. Having this item in your inventory will automatically enter you into a raffle for a Rare Teo egg, and a winner will be drawn after the month ends (to give everyone time to grab their ticket!).
After the winner is selected, all existing Teo Ticket items will then be changed into a permanent, regenerating Teo-based alcoholic drink.
(And if you're curious, yes, it's fine to buy/sell/trade the Teo Ticket if you'd like, but you need at least one Teo Ticket in your inventory at the time of the raffle to be eligible. I'll post reminders and a final date/time when the raffle will be drawn. :3)
