Another artist is streaming at 11:00 PM Aywas Time on the Aywas Livestream.
Our artists will be recording these lessons, and as the months go by, we hope to have a nice library of lessons from different artists that can be consolidated into a video library for users to reference.
Please note the livestream doesn't hold a lot of people, so if you want to attend you may want to get there early and claim a spot.

Another call for Site Pet PSD files!
The last time I posted a news post about this we had just over 50% of all site pet PSDs in our collection. Now we have 66.9%!
That means we're still missing 33.1%...
I'm sure there are users out there, either the original artists, or people who got their hands on the PSD, that have PSDs we do not have.
What we want you to do, is to check this spreadsheet. This spreadsheet lists all the pets we don't have PSDs for. If you have one listed there, send it to AYWAS.PETS@GMAIL.COM with the subject of the email being the name of the pet and the genus (ex. "Binary Melo").
Please do not send it to any other email, as that often happens.
We are not looking for remakes of the PSDs. We are mainly looking for the original PSDs that the original artist made.
As a note, if you get a design accepted in any of our event threads, submissions forums, etc, you're expected to be sending in the PSDs.
So please take some time to check the list and dig through your own collection. Any PSDs we have enable our site breeding artists to use them in breedings, so everyone benefits!

Holiday Lane Cooki--Pets!
We've baked up a fresh batch of pets for the Holiday Lane!
This is the last set of pets for the area, so get your nets ready!
Remember, Holiday Lane will be open through December 31st at 11:59 p.m., so you have until the end of the month to snag them all. :3
We have also finished accepting all pets from the Holiday Pet Submissions thread! If you had a pet accepted but don't see it on the site yet, that means it'll be used in the Seasonal Shop. c:
Payment for these pets will be handled automatically by Chelle (#7310), so you should see that come through soon.
Thank you for your submissions!

New PBC Artists
Hi everyone! It has been a week since I posted the call for artists and, as the influx of applications seems to have come to an end, I think it was time to make a few last picks and dedicate a newspost to our new artists!
A few of them already have established queues as they rejoined the team, but most have super low wait times, if any! The active artist list included in the status thread has been updated to reflect their queue status.
Did you know that Platinum Breedings have their own knowledge base article? If you have any questions which you think it should address, please feel free to leave a note in the status thread, I'd be happy to integrate them.

Basically, just message me if you notice a problem and I'll fix it up. I receive trivia material from a dedicated writer, and since we're human mistakes and typos do happen. We'll be taking extra care with the material going forward, but if something does slip through, I'm happy to fix it. Thanks!)
