Painted Bottle and other news
A new user-suggested breeding addon item, the Painted Bottle, has been added to the USD Shop. The Painted Bottle allows you to specify a new theme for the markings and a color palette for your Breeding Coin breeding, similar to a PLBC.
As such, we have allowed an additional twenty four hour extension to Breeding Coins being available, and they will leave the shop at 11:59 PM on January 9. :)
Interesting news! A team of programmers and tech professionals familiar with Aywas contacted us expressing interest in revamping parts of Adventure to be more fun and less grindy as their university senior project. We're still hammering out the details, but if it works out, this'll be super awesome!
The moderator reviewing the Winter Silvers Contest is just about done, so expect those results fairly soon!

New PBC Artists
Two new artists just joined the PBC team, please give them a warm welcome!
They have already been added to the selection list and are now also available for artist switches.
With a team as big and hardworking as this, and the recent change of predict rules, we will gradually be able to catch up on the backlog! :)

It has been suggested to allow submitting predicts for PBC breedings, whether there is a Life Seed attached or not.
We don't mind changing this, so I updated the PBC knowledge base article with a quick FAQ regarding predicts, please check it out and let me know if there is anything that should be added! As always, you are welcome to use the Platinum Status thread to chat about it. :)

VPL Anniversary Contest
VirtualPetList is coming up on an anniversary and we're going to help them celebrate by holding a little contest!
This is the VPL mascot. If you remember the contest from a couple years ago, you'll remember the winning entry last time!
Now's your chance to try again! All you have to do is edit an Aywas base of your choice into the VPL mascot. One winner as chosen by the VPL owner, CPVR, will win a Scaled Seed as their prize.
The contest will end January 21st, which is the anniversary date. =)
Submit entries on this thread!

Reminders & Brrr!~
Just a quick note to say we're extending the Art Gallery for the New Years theme until Monday January 6th at 11:59 p.m.!
If you already submitted your entry for the following theme, Egg Hatching, no worries, our system will keep it in queue for you.
We'll also be wiping out the Seasonal Shop tomorrow evening around this time.
You get a few bonus days for purchases since you hadn't gotten a 24-hour warning yet. ;)
I also wanted to let everyone know that due to the severe winter weather in Canada and the US, several of our staff and programmers are currently impacted by power outages/technical issues, or will be in the coming days. So, hopefully half of staff won't turn into popsicles. XD
Stay warm if you're in a chilly path!
