December 4th Spotlight

Chlo3 (#29599)

They contribute to the community of aywas and the emphasis of that cooperative, friendly feeling to the game instead of just everyone getting rich and grabbing what you can: Earlier this year, I was bidding on an auction and I had gotten in the habit of copying the last couple digits of my total bp in order to have my bid be a random number. Well I was playing very early in the morning, I was quite tired, and something went wrong, I must have copied the entire amount. It was several million bp that I bid; the entirety of my liquid assets I'd accumulated since joining in January. I sent a polite message to Clo3 just explaining what had happened, the amount I had meant to bid, and I asked if it was possible for her to send me any part of the money back. I knew I had no right to the money since I had placed the bid and it was entirely up to her, and I told her so before sending the message, leaving nothing to do but wait anxiously for a reply. She sent me all the extra pb (my previous total minus the price that I had actually meant to bid) with a cheery, kind message and I was just shocked. I was even more shocked to find out she was pretty new herself and far from rich on the game. Some people would have seen it as their right to keep the money- and they would be correct! However, Clo3 cared about more than her rights and getting rich and I think she deserves mention for exemplifying the kind community spirit aywas is known for having. She is definitely my hero!

New Feature

Goto News Post

Ara Release

After some deliberation, we have been considering having Scavenger Hunt be only in July, with 10-man teams and 150 tasks. In addition, we have been considering releasing the first Ara region in January, and release a new region in Ara every month after.

What do you think? Should we postpone Scav and start releasing Ara starting NEW YEARS???

Ara has nine regions, and if you do want Ara to start being released starting New Years, how about picking which region you want to see released first?
But no only get the codename!!!

Okay, it looks like you guys are going for the Enchanted Woods first... click on the explore area to go to the submission thread!!!

December 3rd Spotlight

Rae (#10736)

Rae runs and keeps track of a wishlist and chat thread, where everyone, especially herself, are always so generous. People regularly hand over some pretty good stuff to each other, and help each other to meet goals, whether it's pet collection, a specific item, or even just to have a dream pet/custom made. Everyone on the thread owes our thanks to Rae for making such an awesome place to hang out. - nominated by SelenaWolf (#10323)

We have decided to award Rae (#10736) with:

A Lesser Breeding Pendant so that she can grant lots and lots of breeding wishes from her thread!!

Check back at 11 PM tomorrow for the next spotlight, and be sure to nominate people on the thread.

Shadow Files (#9437)

I don't know Shadow personally, but I think we are all familiar with her work! Last year Shadow created what is in my opinion the #1 Aywas Resource, The Aywas Wiki. Ever since, Shadow has been working her butt off to make the Wiki into an incredibly thorough Aywas guide. There is still a lot of information that needs to be added, but as it stands the Wiki still has information that cannot be found anywhere else. For instance, recently they'd been adding previews of what HA clothing items look like while on both female and male HAs - a feature that I'm sure will prevent thousands of "Crap this looks horrible on my HA" purchases. Also, many of the pet pages on the Wiki contain the "Made By" information, so that all of the Aywas Contributors can actually get the proper credit for the Site Pets that they created; at the moment, the only other way to find that information out is to hunt through the submissions and match site pets with the member who submitted them.

The Aywas Wiki is Shadow's passion, and she created it because she has a passion for Aywas, it's community, and for helping the site out. She has accumulated a very reliable core group of helpers, and with their assistance she has built the Wiki into a resource to be reckoned with! The best part of this all is that she's constantly building the Wiki, adding new information, new features, coming up with new ideas on how to present information....just to show how awesome the Wiki is, here's a bit of information that is posted on the home page of the Wiki: "We currently have: 6,045 articles, 6,882 files, and 512 users..."

Now that's an Aywas User Guide!!

--nominated by Chianya (#12264)

We have decided to award Shadow Files (#9437) with:
x 5
Five Custom Item Package so she can contribute items to the site to add to her wiki... ;D

Check back at 11 PM tomorrow for the next spotlight, and be sure to nominate people on the thread.

How are licenses/poaching working now? :3

I put some new pets in Holiday Lane for you to test them on!

You also might've noticed that your Bonsai tree grew a friend overnight due to a little coding snafu. We're just going to go ahead and let you keep that second tree to use on more people!

If your tree spawned more than one friend, send your extra(s) to me. (If you purchased more trees, don't worry about those, they're yours to keep.)

If you are missing a tree/yours failed to regenerate, contact me and I'll get that fixed for you!

Ţą|ą ツCheshire (#5252)

Cheshire has colored a number of site pets and when Lightning Weaver went MIA in late February of this year, she stepped up and took over running the Adoption Center Contest which is now in it's 34th week. The aim is to bring color and life to the adoption center and it has done so much to get rid of all the dirt rogrs and loggerhead shrike reves that used to plague the adoption center. At one point during the summer, we were the ones stocking the adoption center. Cheshire has done so much for us, it would be nice if something special was done for her too. - nominated by Aqua (#14764)

We have decided to award Ţą|ą ツCheshire (#5252) with:

Two Miniature Phoenix Trees to stock the adoption center with lots of pets for her mission.

Check back at 11 PM tomorrow for the next spotlight, and be sure to nominate people on the thread.
