The art gallery has been judged!
The theme was Koafs in the Kitchen and we received so many freshly baked, adorable entries!
Here are our featured winners:
(A couple of extra winners this week since the theme had been extended. :D)
The current theme is the Advent Calendar*!
You can feature something from our Advent Calendar/its items, or make your own (but keep it Aywas-related as always). Any medium is acceptable. Remember, this is also a starred (*) theme, meaning you can enter even if you've won in the past few weeks.
Official Aywas stock is permitted for this theme.

HA Bug Fix
If you had recently been unable to create a Human Avatar or if you were receiving a "NOT FOUND" error, both issues should now be resolved thanks to Yasu! Please let me know if the problem has not been remedied for you.
(Note that this was a separate issue from individual clothing items not showing up on the HA. We know there are a few items--namely, the Fungi set--that aren't showing up properly and are working on getting those fixed up!)
Update: The HA contest images and HA profile images have also been fixed! (12/7 @ 12:47 AST.)

Evening! :3 Hope you guys are enjoying the chilly weather~
I'm safely back from my trip and just wanted to make a few quick notes for you.

I think I also owe you guys a monthly custom contest!
I came back to a few questions about the Advent Calendar, so here's a quick rundown of the items that we've had so far:
December 1st - Frosted Window

Holiday Lane and others!
The Holiday Lane is open! You can find it here to start all of your pet exploration! Click.
Lovely, aren't they?
And look what's back! The Holiday Tree!
The Holiday Tree is a feature where you can send gifts to your friends (or random users) for them to open on December 25th. Sometimes the staff even grace a random stocking with something special, to add to the festivity!
Also, if you noticed any unusual items, pets, or BP/GP added to your account, it's because last year's unclaimed presents were reversed back into the original account. This is so they don't sit in limbo.
A new breeding add-on has been released! The Painted Twins allow you to add a second offspring to your PLBC or PMBC breeding, as long as the second offspring is a predict.
To use this addon, please select it in the addon list as well as the "Has Predicts" function. When the predict baby has been uploaded, it will be assigned as usual to a PLBC/PMBC artist.
It can be found for 10,000,000 BP in the BP Shop.
You can also find a case of them for $12.99 in the USD Shop, if you'd prefer going that way. Options are good.
Look forward to the new Jeweled pets, which'll debut either tonight or tomorrow!
Have a great time in the Holiday Lane!

Welcome to December!~*
Welcome to a wonderful December full of merriment.
Nine new pets have found their way into the GP Shop for you to enjoy:
And another set has settled into the BP shop as well:
If you colored one of these awesome pets, please contact Kyu (#1010) for your payment!
Make sure to include your PayPal address if you are opting for the USD option.
We will also be collecting pet PSDs directly from the thread, so you no longer have to send them in. However, please make sure you keep the links active for two weeks (at least until mid-December).
The Essence of December 2014 is designed in honor of Read a New Book Month!
Using this potion on your active pet will randomly change it into one of the colorations above. There is magic in literature after all. *wink*
This month's premium item is a Lockbox! It regenerates once a week and allows you to permanently lock your pet from modification (zapping, potioning, etc).
Have a party, it's your birthday!
We are on our tenth Lunaris in the celtic tree zodiac series.
Remember, the Elder Lunaris is currently reigning over the skies through December 23rd, then a new birthday feline will take over!
Don't forget to check out the birthday link to claim your gift from Aywas on your big day! Need to change your birthday? Click here!
The new monthly contests have been announced!
January Monthly Pets - BP Shop: Enter
January Monthly Pets - GP Shop: Enter
January Monthly Customs
Theme: Hot Tea
Good luck with your entries!
Our favorite Nova custom items have moved to the Premium Outlet, where they will reside for the full month of December. In January and February, they will migrate back to the GP/BP Shops.
But there are, of course, a lot of special things coming up this month too...
Ho ho ho, I have returned for another month of merriment!
Make sure you visit the Advent Calendar each day this month for a nice seasonal item and a little BP bonus!
Your favorite holiday greeting cards, the Merry AyMas Card, can now be found stocking in the BP Shop! When you select the Use option on the card, the user you send it to will receive a notification that says: (Sender name and ID) thinks you are special and wished you a Merry AyMas!! Stock up on these to send to friends and strangers alike to make their day a little brighter. :3
A monthly update from behind the scenes.
- Forum ping groups are working again! If you'd like to ping a group of people at once find a fitting tag and have your friends subscribe to it - no more need for large ping lists with everyone's IDs!
- keep in mind that the deadline for NaNoWriMo submissions is December 10th at 11:59 p.m, so if you would like to join and earn a prize there is still time!
- although we haven't yet decided where it will be located, rest assured that there will be a link for easy glittering slab access added eventually.
- the lair upgrade, too, is still undergoing some modification
- of course we also have holiday festivities and surprises coming up~
... on the note of surprises, check out Helping Hands, Happy Families, a thread for you (US residents) to nominate a family member for an extra christmas present!
We're still decorating the Holiday Lane and trimming the Holiday Tree, but both should be ready soon! :)
To a very merry december!
