Welcome to May!
Welcome to the merry month of May!
As the saying goes, April showers brings May flowers, and we have plenty of fresh treats springing up.
This news post is going to be very big, so be sure to set aside some time to read it from top to bottom! ;)
New pets are all abloom in the GP Shop!
While the creatures in the BP Shop are aglow with glee!
If you colored one of these adorable 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-May) so we have time to snag 'em for science!
Soak up a new month with the Essence of May 2016!
This golden apple potion will turn your active pet into a random monthly coloration from the assortment above.
This month's premium item is the Small Bronze SCC Pen, which allows you a 25% chance at uploading one of your finished Sketch Breeding Coin babies! Let's hope that a lot of new species spread their wings this month~
We kicked off a brand new Lunaris set and calendar last month!
The Beaver Lunaris is with us throughout the month of May!

A monthly update from behind the scenes!
Yasu has told us this month will be spent focusing on the back-end of the game. It shouldn't be possible for one user with a bot to lag the rest of the site through Adventure, for instance, so he's going to be focusing on re-writing some functions to better serve a larger userbase. Fortunately, he knows what's causing these problems and will be tackling them!
Further, he's said that he wants to focus on getting the new forums up. If you recall the new forums are something we endeavored to complete a couple years ago, but had some issues popping up that prevented it. If we are successful in getting the new forums up, we can look into possibly implementing new forum-based features, like vistas or a more robust blocking system. No promises, but we'll see if it's something the users would want if the forum recode is completed.
Here's to some lovely progress throughout the month!
Some new Jeweled Pets have come out to play! Let's give a big hand for our featured artist of the month, Shawnee!
Remember, you can try out to be the new featured artist of the month on this thread! Looking forward to seeing your applications!
Who's excited for the incoming Teo Madness? You can start looking at the Teos that are being stocked by going to this page. They will be stocked throughout May. The event will happen on May 30th!
Be sure to get your keyboards and mice ready for that day, it's always a madhouse! Also remember that during Teo Sales, only purchases you make during the sale can be used to claim an bonus egg.
Antiquity Staves are stocking in the GP Shop until May 15, 2016 at 11:59pm AST! Also remember, you can expect a new raw pet to debut on June 1st, in case you missed the change!
We aren't yet ready to open the SCC Feature because some users still need accommodating from when SCCs were handled manually, but we're ready to start accepting some artists!
SCC Feature artists are paid a flat $20 for all items listed in the feature. Deadlines are one month for completion with a minimum of one pet a month. You can apply to become an artist here.
Soon as the remainder of the manual-SCC users are handled and we get a nice crop of artists, we'll have the feature open for those of you with SCCs (and some of the new items will be released too!).
May is PSD COLORING MONTH!
Let's get those PSDs colored!
The goal of May is to get as many PSDs colored as possible. Whether you are taking MDT requests, USD commissions through the USD panel, GP commissions, BP commissions, or simply coloring PSDs for free, you're an artist who's eligible to post your PSD coloring and claim a raffle ticket!
For every PSD you color and post the resulting PNG on the Event Thread:
1) You, as the artist, receive a ticket to the pot of PSD Coloring Prizes!
2) The user who's coloration you posted has a small chance of having the pet uploaded for them! Special upload days are on Tuesday and five pets will be chosen per Tuesday.*
* Must not be a predict
Read more about the Event here on the Event Thread!
Here are some fun site-wide goals for you guys:
1. Reach 1000 PSD colorings by the deadline and the userbase can move one Raw Pet to either Ay or Ara. There will be a vote.
2. Reach 2000 PSD colorings by the deadline and the userbase can vote on which common/uncommon species make the next two hybrids, for release in July.
Have fun and get your wrists ready for some coloring!
The Faux Box is sporting a new theme!
Submit a Plants/Nature Faux Set (themed edits and themed colors for all five pets) and earn an extra Faux Net.
The TFE and Alidae Egg queues are running a little dry lately, so they've been discounted to $40.00. If you want to buy one, grab one quickly! They'll be discounted until May 8, 11:59 PM.
Let's talk about the Art Gallery! Lately we have been seeing a decrease in submissions to this feature, to the point where virtually no one is participating.
What can we do to make this feature more exciting for you? To make you want to submit to it? Respond in the comments below!
That's all for May... for now! Let's see if we can get those PSDs colored and have plenty of fun this month!
