Monday Madness

Site Update

Goto News Post

fauna_lovebug.png

I know most people dislike Mondays, so lets see if we can make it a bit better with a few updates!

collectable_premiumgrabbag.png

The Premium Grab Bag has been removed from the USD Shop for now!

magic_jeweledrarecrystal.png

I have opened a new thread searching for Monthly Jeweled Artists, so if you're feeling artsy go apply!

explore_invisibleitemseer.gif

I have also created a new Think Tank Thread for Premium Ideas,! This is both for the monthly item and items you would like to see going into the Premium Shop.

magic_paintedgold.pngmagic_mysteriousplatinumdna.png

Painted Gold has had it's description, and the Painted Knowledge Base articles updated. There was quite a bit of confusion, however Painted Gold is Not required when you are breeding Hybrids with a Painted Lesser Breeding Coin. It is required to breed Hybrids with a Painted Metal Breeding coin, however. You can continue to attach them if you want to use them to give your artist a tip, however. I also wanted to announce that the Mysterious Platinum DNA is Usable with Sketch Breeding Coins.

magic_platinumbreedingpendant.pngcollectable_pridecandle.png

Ever wanted a Platinum Breeding Pendant? Well, did you know that for the longest time you could exchange three Lesser Breeding Pendants for one? Most of the site didn't know that, so we decided to streamline that a little bit! If you have three Lesser Breeding Pendants, you can go over to the Annoying Item Bazaar and trade them in! While you were in the Bazaar you may have noticed that the Pride Candle is also stocking! There was a user suggestion to allow users to trade in the old, no longer usable Teo eggs for them, and we thought that was a grand idea! However, due to how the Shop is set up, we can only exchange one type of egg at a time, so this will be the exchange schedule:

Wild Teo Egg ~ August 8th - August 15th @ 11:59pm AST
Rainbow Teo Egg ~ August 16th - August 23rd @ 11:59pm AST
Holiday Teo Egg ~ August 24th - Sept 31st @11:59pm AST
Scav Teo Egg ~ Sept 1st - Sept 8th @11:59pm AST
MAYDAY! Teo Egg ~Sept 9th - Sept 16th @11:59pm AST
Black Friday Egg ~ Sept 17th - Sept 24th @11:59pm AST
Flowering Teo Egg ~ Sept 25th - Oct 2nd @11:59pm AST

Two of our beloved Moderators have had to step down temporarily. Kagemi and Jayjay have unfortunately been attacked by real life and have not been able to be active on Aywas. As such, we have temporarily demoted them. Once their situations get fixed they will be welcomed back immediately. If you had any unanswered PMs with them, please contact another Moderator with your issue.

The Knowledge Base link has moved from Archives to help. We have been slowly working on going through it to ensure everything is up to date, so if you have questions please make sure you check it out!

explore_shootingstar.png
The Lunar Meteor will be closing Tuesday 11:59 PM AST, and then on Wednesday we will host a few Raffles for the Star Tickets, so make sure you complete your museum collection.

delicious_icon.pnggreta_icon.pngniklas_icon.png

Thanks to the help of one of our users, we also discovered there was even more NPCs hiding! We have located the Horses of the Apocalypse as well as several more holiday-based NPCs! Go on over to the Site Character Page and check them all out! You may also notice that the NPC's no longer have an age. This has been a matter of discussion among staff, and we decided that it would be better to just list their birthdays :D Perhaps they'll occasionally throw a celebration!

As a side note, the Raffle Link below should be fixed now!

collectable_glitteringslab.pngpawrocksilver.png
Don't forget to read their entry before submitting yours!
It should be pretty easy to bring a sound ending after their entry! c:

Entries for next week must be in by August 14th at 6pm AST.
If the story isn't ended by then, I will add an ending to it, myself.

Story Game rules and info can be found in the Knowledge Base. Updates, chat, the ping group, and the prize for next week can be found in the Story Game thread!

Also another reminder that there is a new PSD Fetch thread open, located here and can be found manually by going to Forums > Aywas Talk > Breeding Chat > Offspring PSD Search > PSD Fetch 2.0

The old Fetch thread should be completed now!

-Rudy (#4485)




While I was out exploring the Lunar Meteor I discovered a few more pets! I'm sure by now many of you saw them, but due to the delay in my news post I think the Lunar Meteor might run for an extra day so you can all make sure to catch the new ones!





Good hunting!!



As a side note, for all Breeding Artists who are on a USD contract, should you wish to use part of your payment for an item from the USD shop just make sure you tell your appropriate Admin when you turn in your list. We will just subtract the payment from your invoice and send you the item directly :)

Mauri is back... with something peculiar!

Contests

Goto News Post

Hello to all of our Aywans! <3

I officially have a place to stay long term and a stable internet connection. n_n I want to thank all of you for being so patient with me while I was without a home. It was a bit of a hectic time but my life is calming down now! I'm working on catching up on everything breeding and we have a new pink helper by the name of Kousei that is helping us manage all of the pet related duties we had.

So thank you, again, for being understanding and patient with me. ;-;

collectable_greenslime.png
I also found something a bit peculiar during my time away...
I uncovered a new contest. It was covered in a bit of green sludge but don't worry, it should be safe!

Head on over to this thread if you want to help design a new genus. Both art and writing entries are accepted!

I won't tell you what it is for... but I assure you that you'll glow with excitement. ;)

Updates are Coming!!

Site Update

Goto News Post

fauna_lovebug.png

Good Afternoon! I hope everyone is enjoying the Lunar Meteor so I will try to keep this short, it is just touching up on a few things!

collectable_premiumgrabbag.png

I am sure by now most of you have seen the Premium Grab Bag on the Welcome Back page.. Well, it is finally released! This item does exactly what its name suggests it will do! You can pull out a random previously-released Premium monthly item! We removed some of the retired objects, such as Gardening Items, though given time they may find their way back in there.
You can find the Grab Bag in the USD Shop under the Misc section.
Be warned this item will not be a permanent addition to the shop! In order to help keep the premium items of value, it will be stocked randomly, with or without a notification as to when it will be stocked! I will keep it in for a few days to celebrate its creation, then it will be removed and show up at a later time.

foodenergy_longislandicedteo.png

Speaking of the previous Premium Items, I know that the Long Island Iced Teo has been a source of irritation for a lot of users (most of staff included) so I am happy to announce that it has finally been fixed! We spent the past few days thoroughly testing it, and it appears to finally be working correctly :D

foodenergy_thezombie.png

Which! Now that we have figured out the trick behind regenerating Alcohol, we are going to be testing The Zombie! We ask, until I announce it has been fixed, that you Do Not use yours! You will not be refunded should something go wrong.

magic_grandeditpotion.pngmagic_artistticket.pngmagic_paintedbreedingcoin.png

My next point of interest involves breedings. Firstly, Cocobeef||Quetz (#8298) is going on hiatus. I have assigned the rest of the Artist Tickets they had, and I am going to be working on compiling a list of artists on the Grand Team so users can know exactly who they can ticket.

Regarding Painted Coins:
I am going to be monitoring the requests closely, so I would like to remind all users that when you submit a breeding with a Painted Coin, you are permitted to give a Theme and a Color Scheme. These themes are supposed to be only a few words, and users are not allowed to ask the artist to use something that is Copyright! You are permitted to ask for certain edits to be used, however the artist is not required to follow your request. Please keep that in mind!
If you have questions regarding the coins, you can check out the Painted Metal Breeding Coin and Painted Lesser Breeding Coin Knowledge Base articles for helpful information.
On the other spectrum, I will also be monitoring the finished babies to ensure they fit the theme, the colors, and that they are of an appropriate quality.

And, again, I am asking ALL of Slash's Breeding Artists to please PM me with the abbreviation of your team and your Paypal address within the subject line. Then, in the body, include a link to your PM with Slash.
Many of you have already contacted me, and I appreciate it! However, those of you who have not, please do so quickly! Your lists will not be processed and you will not be able to be paid until I hear from you!

magic_artistspalette.pngmagic_paintedbottle.png

Artist's Palette and Painted Bottle now work properly with Blind Dates, so feel free to add them as you would like!

magic_holidaybreedingcoin.pngmagic_deliciouseggnog.png

We also have a Temporary Breeding Artist opening! This position pays GP, with SP and Custom Item incentives for how many you complete on time! We need someone willing to help clear out the HBC queue, as well as to finish the Drunk Breedings from last year! If you are interested please visit This Thread for instructions and more information on payment!
The Bonuses will work as follows (And be used for current HBC Artists as well):
20 points per list turned in on time
1 SP for every 2 lists turned in on time.
1 Point = 1gp
With your points you can can purchase any custom making item available
You can purchase breeding items ONLY if you are submitting predicts, and you must present the pair and completed predicts when requesting the breeding items
If you cannot submit ONLY predicts, then you cannot request that coin



clothing_birthdayblower.pngclothing_birthdaycake.pngclothing_birthdaycandle.png

We have also remade the Birthday Fixes Thread. You should have received a Ping if you had posted in the last thread, asking if you still wish to change your birthday. We apologize for the massive delay in these, however we do offer the Lunaris' for these missed birthdays if you had contacted a moderator within 2 weeks of your birthday. Please visit the thread for more information!

magic_prehistoricportal.png

Since you have been so patient and read this whole post, how about we open the Prehistoric Portal once more and see if we can find anything?
It looks like something is swimming out...
Daevo.png

Ah! Look at this adorably happy fish! We will call him Daevo, and he will be our fishy.
Some of you may recognize him based on the prehistoric dunkleosteus, and if you are familiar with this fish you will also know they weren't nearly as happy or friendly-looking as ours! They were incredibly interesting, however, and I strongly recommend checking them out! :D

As per normal Prehistoric Portal tradition, once we have 75 Daevo designs in the edit repository, we will take another peek inside the portal and see if we can find something else. Please remember these designs must fall between 15% and 50%

colette_icon.pngmanju_icon.pngpablo_icon.png

And would you look at these sexy devils? It seems a few more NPC's have shown up! And these ones seem to have brought a few tools?? I wonder what type of construction their planning...
(Our thanks to Frey who wrote these profiles a very long time ago!)

The Premium Item for this month is the brand new Vending Machine! Similar to it's counterpart, the Grocery Bag, the Vending Machine is a regenerating item that will spit out 3 random Energy Items. This does exclude Alcohol Items, so if you happen to find one please report that to me immediately!

We have a Birthday Lunaris!

I would like to welcome the Salmon Lunaris!


This is the part of the news post where I would introduce this months Birthday Lunaris, but unfortunately he is running late :(

I am so sorry about this oversight and I will strive to do better in the future.

Not enough entries again this week! Stop breaking my heart!

As sad as that may be, I have some updates regarding Story Game that I hope everyone likes!
There is now an Official Story Game Thread for updates, chatting, and a ping group for weekly reminders to turn your entries in!

Not only that, but I've realized a lot of users want to be surprised by the weekly prizes as much as a lot of you want to know what you're entering for. I've found a sort-of middle ground to try and make everyone happy!

Each week I will update the second post of the official thread with the current week's prize. This way, users still have a way to see or avoid the current prize! Be sure not to spoil yourselves or others!

Try to wrap your entries up this week, if possible. I will only run the contest for a maximum of TWO more weeks before we start a new story!

...speaking of starting a new story..
I have a small, but fun, surprise for all the Story Game writers/readers out there when we finish the current story! I hope you guys will like it!

Entries for next week must be in by August 7th at 6pm AST!

-Rudy (#4485)

(Pause for dramatic effect.)

Hi, it's me again!

I have more news! You could say I'm very.. newsy.

I'm here again to tell you that Kita (#3988) will no longer be doing PSD Fetch.

I will now be handling PSD Fetch, and there is a shiny new thread HERE for you to post in!

Please do not post if you have already posted in the old thread. Kita is working as fast as she can to get the old thread finished up! Rest assured you won't be forgotten about!

Be sure to thank her for her hard work in getting your PSDs linked up!

I will try not to let you guys down! n.n

-Also Rudy (#4485)


Kaiyo's turn!
I just want to remind All of Slash's breeding teams to PM me ASAP if you have not! You will not get another breeding list, nor will your list be processed until I hear from you.
In the subject line include the abbreviation of your team(s) and your Paypal Address. Then in the PM's Body include the link to your PM with Slash, and if you are ready for your list to be processed.
Thankyou to everyone who has already contacted me!
