Hiring Think-Tank members

Pets

Goto News Post

Want to have a hand in the way Aywas V2 develops? I'm currently hiring about 3-5 creative members to form a think tank to help me dream up new features for the new site.


You must have both MSN and Skype to apply. Our purpose is to develop features for the eight regions of Aywas - desert, mountains, fields, etc. Each of these regions will have a city (that needs its own unique features) along with other outside-of-the-city features. If you're familiar with Pokemon you'll know what I mean.


The Think-Tank members will be paid 5 GP each at the end of each session, in which there will be eight, one for each region. The sessions will be about half an hour to an hour long. So in total you'll be making 40 GP.


If you'd like to apply for this job, send an e-mail to [email protected] with a feature idea or two for one of the Aywas regions to help us get a feel for how creative you are :)

Fundraiser

Pets

Goto News Post



This kitty needs your help.


If you haven't read Springdragon's thread yet, his roommate slammed his kitty's tail into a door. Long story short, this cat is going to die unless they can afford the $600 vet bill to get the cat surgery.



Aywas is going to try and fundraise as much money as we can to help save this cat's life. To do this we are selling 12 Quetzals colored in the cat's colors (called Bane Quetzals, respectively, as the cat's name is Bane) for $50 each.




12/12 Quetzals have been reserved so far.


Because these Quetzals are going to be customs, they will not be obtainable in any other way but helping save this cat's life.



There will only be a maximum of 12 of these on the site. Ever. If you want to reserve a Bane Quetzal and help the kitty get the surgery, message me regarding the $50 donation.


If you'd like to donate money directly to Springdragon to help with the cost of the surgery, contact him directly. Click here to message Springdragon directly.


For every direct donation you send to Springdragon, you will get the equivalent in GP and a special Bane kitty item if the donation is $5 or over. (you get this item if you reserve a quetzal too)




Okay, according to my records the Quetzals have sold out. But you're welcome to donate for the kitty item to Springdragon to cover the morphine costs or any other costs associated with the kitty getting better.

Winrawrs!

That was a very fun and interesting contest indeed! So here I present to you our winners. If you are one of the winners please post the gender in which you would like your prize to be.



In no specific order...



Tennis (#53)
A lion cannot roar until it is 2 years old. So Simba was a LIE, because he roared when he wasn't 2 years old.



Kristina (#295)
Cheetahs makes facial expressions by using the bold black lines around its muzzle to signal its mood.



AirDragon (#109)
In some lions, the tuft of their tail conceals a hard "spine" or "spur", approximately 5 mm long, formed of the final sections of tail bone fused together.



Rein (#284)
Cats can make over 100 vocal sounds, while dogs can only make 10.



Grayfire (#621)
Males with darker manes attract more females, but they have a lower sperm count than males with lighter manes because
the males with lighter manes attract less heat. So the females go for the darker males but their breeding rate will suffer. (I know a few people posted this, but this is the full fact.)



Alexina (#352)
"Cats can either roar or purr but they can't do both. The four main big cats the lion, tiger, leopard and jaguar have specially adapted larynxes which enable them to roar (but they cannot purr); the lion has the longest larynx, which means it can produce the loudest roar. Cats that can't roar are always able to purr. (Again, a few people posted, but this is a full fact.)



UmiMizuAi (#514)
All tigers have a similar marking on their forehead ,which resembles the Chinese symbol Wang, meaning King. They are royal alright.



Ehen (#1007)
A lion's muzzle is like a fingerprint - no two lions share the same pattern of whiskers. c:



Nikki (#1066)
The tendons in a tiger's leg are very strong. So strong in fact that a tiger was shot and killed, but it remained standing; that's proof of the strength of those tendons!



Airr + Nini (#404)
Pregnant lions still go on the hunt. In order to protect the babies, each developing lion cub in the womb is surrounded by a hammock-like "cushion", which absorbs impact from the mama's leaping around and wrestling with giant prey, like wildebeest. :3



-Sai (#133)
There are over 40 different names for a cougar, including things like Catamount, Mountain Lion and Mountain Screamer;
the cougar holds a Guinness World Record for this.



Hannah Kerela (#761)
Wanna know why Simba had a harem? In a pride, most male cubs are driven out as they mature to prevent inbreeding, and form prides of their own with other males. However, most prides do have more than one male - generally up to four.



So congrats!

Looks like we hit 1000 users sometime this morning :)


To celebrate I tossed a Random Egg at everyone who logged in within the last three days (because I'm mean).


Fry it on your newly bought stove or something.

TOS Changes

Pets

Goto News Post

Go to the TOS, review them, and ensure you are aware of them. I would like to bring attention especially to the newly established TOS Point 2 and 3. Point 11, 12, and 13 have been modified as well.


I am going to take the time to mention that Aywas is and forever will be a private website. You are a guest on this website, and just like if you were a guest in someone's house, you may be asked to leave for any reason. Obviously, we're trying to have fun here, so this shouldn't be a problem -- but keep it in mind.


In addition, this is not a website for children. This site caters to the older crowd who enjoy pet sites. Regardless, it has now been decreed that any explicit material is now outlawed and any user found posting any material of this nature will be immediately and permanently banned.



Anyone who encounters any explicit material or illegal behavior on this website should report it directly to a moderator (those are the users with green names and green posts) such that the perpetrator can be immediately and permanently banned.
