Google Wallet being removed

Site Update

Goto News Post

This is a little notice that "Google Wallet" as a payment solution is going to be removed on March 1st, so if you like that payment processor and want to use it, please get in any last minute transactions.

It is being removed because Google is shutting it down. As far as I know there is no replacement service from Google being offered. We will still have PayPal and Amazon available.

Art Gallery

The art gallery has been judged!
The theme was Chinese New Year and we received a plethora of celebratory entries!

Here are our featured winners:





They won:

Congratulations!

The current theme is Scribble/Doodle Pets*!
Think in the style of Rad Custom Crystals and some of our "scribble"/sketch/doodle pets. :) This should be a fun one!
As a starred (*) theme, you can also enter this one if you've won recently or plan on entering upcoming themes.
Official Aywas stock is not permitted for this theme.

Good luck!

Some new themes have also been added!

March 1st - March 7th: Skills
March 8th - March 15th: St. Patrick's Day*
March 16th - March 21st: Aywas Garage Bands
March 22nd - March 28th: Hybrid Hybrids


Remember, if you have an idea for an Art Gallery theme, please share it with us here! This thread in the Think Tank is always open, and I reference it frequently when creating new themes. :)

Slashbot Update

Site Update

Goto News Post

collectable_slashbot.gif

We have a new "Site Character" account now in use: Slashbot (#3).

The dedicated Slashbot account will allow me to more easily communicate with Slashbot/slot holders, keep track of uses, and answer any questions in a timely fashion. I literally receive hundreds of messages a day during busy times, many of which are urgent and/or complex, so having a separate Slashbot inbox will ensure nothing gets buried.

When you send a message to #3, once it is received and read, you will get a confirmation reply. However, please understand that it will still take time for your idea to be discussed, approved, and ultimately implemented. As much as we would love to add things to the site instantly--from new pets to new features to events--the process is just not that quick, even just for normal site happenings.

book_theslashbot.png

If you already have a Slashbot/Handheld World-related PM pending with me on #17, please send a new message to Slashbot (#3) containing a link to your original PM(s) with me on #17.

For all new Slashbot/Handheld World-related messages, from now on please send them to Slashbot (#3).

In either of the above cases, when PMing the Slashbot account, try to use the following subject lines (when applicable):

- Slashbot Slot Sold
- Slashbot Slot Purchased
- Idea Approval [No Slot] (insert type of proposed use here, such as New Genus, Event, etc.). Use this if you have a Slashbot idea and want to make sure it's feasible before making a purchase.
- Idea Approval [Slot] (insert type of proposed use here, such as New Genus, Event, etc.). Go with this subject line if you have Slashbot slot ready to use but it still needs to be approved.
- Date Reservation (insert type of proposed use here, such as New Genus, Event, etc.). Please note that this line should only be used if you have a slot, your idea has been approved, and you are just waiting on having it implemented/scheduled.
- General Inquiry

This will be a huge help to me--er, the Slashbot--in sorting through messages.

collectable_slashbotpieces.png

Some changes will also be made to the Slashbot item itself on April 1st. Basically, I'll be turning it into an actual usable item so that I do not have to manually keep track of slots anymore. As you can imagine, that's not very fun (and I don't think it's fun for sellers and buyers either). Why April 1st? It's not a joke, honest. XD That's just the first day of the second quarter in the year, which best fits the regeneration schedule that the Slashbot has (90 days).

I am also hoping to have the Slashbot/Handheld World KB guide done by April 1st, but in the meantime you can send your questions to #3.

I'm looking forward to working with you on all of your great ideas!
(And thanks for bearing with me!)

Goto News Post

The annual Aywas 24-hour love fest finale has arrived!
(Lasting until February 22, 2015 at 11:59 p.m.)

If you need a little pick-me-up, the Adore-a-Gram Lunaris has one final Love Letter to give you today from the Advent Calendar!

magic_breedablepotion.gifcollectable_divorcepapers.png

Two items have been added to the Seasonal Shop for a 24-hour stock--Breedable Potions and Divorce Papers! (The Divorce Papers will return to the SP shop after this 24-hour period.)

The Engagement Rings have been added to the USD Shop. Due to their impact on the queue and associated costs, we could not release these for points this time around, but still wanted to make them available to you. Like the two items above, these are buyable for 24 hours.

clothing_airbornehearts.pngloveletter.pngfoodenergy_sweetheartsucker.png

Remember that we also have limited quantity stock items coming up, as well as raffles and giveaways that will be going on throughout the day. You can check out those details here!

Also, don't forget that the Love, Aywas thread is open until February 23rd at 11:59 p.m. So if you miss getting one of the shinies you want or aren't rolling in Love Letter points, you still have a shot at something nice. :3

Best of luck!
