Do you want to help one of our previous charities?

Site Update

Goto News Post

One of our previous charities, the Carolina Raptor Center, is in the running to get $25,000! Wow! Problem is, only the top five of their contest get a prize, and they're number six.

So let's see what we can do about it?

Go to this link and click "CLICK HERE TO VOTE"

The official rules say you can vote as many times as you want. Just don't cheat (no holding F5 or using scripts to vote, you have to do it as a human, manually) because that would affect the charity's good standing in the contest. But if 500 Aywas members vote 10 times each, legitimately, that'll put them easily in the running and let this wonderful charity win their prize.

It'll only take you a couple seconds to vote, so do as many times as you can! If you helped this charity by voting, post in the news comments how many times you voted and I'll send you something random.

If you like birb, then help birb! Go vote!

If you weren't aware, the Knowledge Base article has a link to the PSD for all of the unlocked bases, so you can fetch them from there.

To Like or not to Like?

Site Update

Goto News Post

Pet Profiles now have the option to "Like" them. This puts the pet in your personal "Like" folder, which you can access from Account Settings - Liked Pets.

Once you "Like" a pet, it's placed into the unsorted folder. On the Liked Pets page, you can make new folders and drag and drop pets into the folders depending on how you want to label them. Maybe you want a folder full of pets you like looking at, and a folder full of pets you've bred with that you want to keep tabs on. It's up to you!

On the Account Settings page you can choose to disable Like notifications if you don't particularly care if another user likes your pets.

Artist Tickets and more

Site Update

Goto News Post

A Greater Painted Pen is now available for $10.00. It allows you to select one PLBC or PMBC artist for your breeding and rewards the artist with a $5.00 bonus.

Based on user suggestion, the Artist Ticket has been added to the USD Shop at $25.00. It has also been updated to yield a Painted Pen-esque bonus of $10.00 to the selected artist.

Another artist ticket item has sprung up too, the new Crystal Egg Ticket. In case your favorite artist isn't swayed by an extra $10, this item not only yields a $40 bonus to your selected artist, but also allows you to skip the queue and be assigned to their next list (so it's essentially an Artist Ticket and a Speedy Breeding Ticket combined).

Both of these items are compatible with predicts, so you can solicit a non-site breeding artist with these extra premiums. Read the linked Knowledge Base article for more information about these items, their payments, and predicts when using them.

A forum board has opened up to provide people a place to solicit predicts for USD bonus items, or for artists to set up shop and indicate that they are available for these items. Click here.

Programming Update
Here's what our April coder has finished since our last update:

- SQL Error Breeding Eggs should never happen again
- Admins can fix existing SQL Error Breeding Eggs easily
- Breeding panel improvements requested by admins
- Admins can add/fix adventure skills for pets
- Breeding Coin origin logs now
- Admins can edit the origin field to correct them
- Admins can fix incorrect entries in Edit Repository now
- Admins can edit the Knowledge Base easier now
- Users can disable ratings on oekaki pieces
- Bug when sending items with charges fixed
- Trading Post previous owner bug fixed
- HA entries cached so they don't change during the contest
- Ghost items/users removed from Shop Search
- Crystal Archive bug fixed
- Auto-Resize of large forum images to prevent edit link disappearing
- Shop item removal bug potentially fixed (implemented tweaks)
- Account bound items in Easter Egg field bug fixed

As you can see a big chunk of this update was improving things from the back end for the admin team - but that means we can help all of you easier too.

Keep making suggestions, bumping suggestions, bumping bug threads that need fixing - we'll keep working on them!

The current theme is Lunaris*!
Any medium is acceptable, just be sure it features the Lunaris in some way!

Scavenger Hunt Prize Shop

Site Update

Goto News Post

The Scavenger Hunt Prize Shop is now open. You can collect your Scav Paws, SP, and other assorted prizes at the link in the Shop's menu.

The Scav Teo Egg allows you to grab a Teo from the Scav Prize Teos. The claims are currently one per account so that everyone has a fair chance at them.

Thursday 5:00 -- Scav Teo Egg starts off at 100 Scav Paws.
Friday 5:00 PM -- Scav Teo Egg will drop to 50 Scav Paws.
Saturday 5:00 PM -- Scav Teo Egg will drop to 25 Scav Paws.
Sunday 5:00 PM -- Limitation of "one per account" will be disabled.

Scav Paint and Scav Markers both work for this year's bases and last year's bases. Scav Clay is a new addition that works for this year's hybrid bases.

Instructions for Moved Players and Lair Partners

- If you moved accounts and had the account banned, contact me and I will disperse your Scav Paws/other prizes to you.
- If you moved and another user lives in your account, ask the user to claim the prize and send you what they can, then PM me and I will move Scav Paws to your account.
- If you have lair partners, claim your first batch of prizes, then PM me and I'll send your second/third/etc batch.

In all instances, be sure to tell me which team you were on.

For high placing teams that have more manual prizes, contact me and we can discuss those prizes and how to disperse them. Winner's Stash and Effort Prizes are still coming soon.
