Site Update

Goto News Post


Moderator applications are open! Moderators are the backbone of the website and help organize events, compile information, and assist admins with tasks. If you have ever wanted to help keep Aywas running smoothly, then a moderator application is for you!

Some minor edits have been made to the Moderator Application Knowledge Base article so please be sure to review it before submitting your application! The admin team will once again be reviewing submitted applications together.

In order to assure your application is reviewed for this hiring call, please be sure to submit it by 11:59 PM AST on June 9th.

Eri & Dew ride into the sunset!

Site Update

Goto News Post


Evening, folks!

I'm not really known for short, sweet news posts since I enjoy blathering on about all things Aywas--and, despite my best efforts, this one will be no exception (sorry, Slash).


In the fall of 2009, I joined Aywas (shout out to all my pre-alpha peers!) as a recent college grad with no job, no place of my own, no significant other. I was fortunate enough to be invited to become part of staff shortly after, quickly worked my way up to the administrator most of you have come to know me as, and have dedicated a large part of my life to Aywas ever since. Seven years later, I am happy to share that I have a career, an apartment, and lots of wonderful people in my life.


What I don't have anymore, however, is the amount of time I used to (I swear, it really does slip by faster each year). Before, it wasn't unusual for me to wake up at 8 a.m., hop on Aywas, and not log off until 18 hours+ later. Now that I have more offline responsibilities, that's no longer doable.

The Aywas community is made up of the most incredible people I have ever had the honor of working for and alongside, which is why this decision was such a difficult one. You guys only deserve me at my best, and I can no longer deliver at that level. Since I'm sure you all know where this is going, I would like to formally announce that I am stepping down from my staff position with Aywas, effective today. My on-site jobs have been divided amongst staff, so please contact a friendly green, pink, or blue friend for assistance going forward. <3


I would like to take a moment to thank each and every one of you, especially the people I have had the pleasure of interacting with directly, for making Aywas what it is, and what it continues to become. There is nothing I will miss more than being able to help you through your Aywas journey and bringing your ideas to life.


Since this is my last to share anything with you all at once, I wanted to share some of my favorite little-known facts with you. I don't think they'll ever appear in Trivia, but hey, who doesn't love useless factoids:

- Yasu doesn't appreciate calls at 3 a.m.
- One time he looked up how many notices I had. In a mix of terror and bewilderment, his only response was, "Why?"
- Before my first news post when Slash left me in charge, his only parting piece of advice was to "always include images." As you can see, that stuck with me for quite a while. XD
- I get to demote myself. That's kind of exciting. My last staff act will be something I've never done before!
- Uploading thousands of pets and items is tedious work. To make it fun, I sometimes got a little silly with the descriptions. So if you're wondering if you're the only one who sees a pop culture reference or a dirty pun, I will tell you: no, you're not; it was intentional. *wink*
- The Ghostly Apple is the greatest Aywas item ever. Yes, this is a fact.
- I created the concepts for Evren, Claude, Miksa, Tataio, and Dylan.
- The Haunted Lake was inspired by where I live.
- My little sister joined Aywas at age 13. She will be a freshman at MIT in the fall.
- Aywas gave me a skillset that helped my career. You never know when a volunteer passion can help you get a job! Do what you love. <3


I'm truly not trying to break some kind of goodbye-news post world record here, it's just really hard to let go of this amazing place. I'll still be around as a contributor, and Dew will still be working as a site artist, so you're not completely getting rid of us (did you really think it'd be that easy?). If you'd like to chat, I'll be a PM away.


Friends, it's been a privilege. I will be forever grateful to you for everything you have all done for me, and wish you nothing but the best in your lives--online and off. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.



With all the love in Ay, Ara, and the rest of the world,
- Eri

T4T: Hunter Bots at Dawn


Goto News Post

Scav Hunt has been a long tradition with varied response, and while staff are sitting well (WELL) away from it this year, some users have taken it upon themselves to host one themselves.

You're able to grab your official unofficial gear from Trash for Treasure for the next 24 hours only! Time to practice that rushing about!

I just wanted to quickly clarify a comment that was made in a news comment about Dawn Crystals and "oldline" pets:

New designs on old lines can be made with the correct custom making item for its genus - in the Simii's case, Tokens.

Existing custom designs on old lines can be updated to the new lines with a Dawn Crystal (you must provide the artwork, and it must be overlaid on the existing custom), or with its correct custom making item (again, it must be overlaid on the existing custom).

I apologise for the confusion that the comment has caused with those users that saw it, and I hope this clears up any further confusion!

And a bear-y quick notice that the bear-athon comes to a close May 28th, 11:59pm - so if you've always wanted to turn a fish into a bear, this is your chance! Almost all genera welcome - just get it in that fursuit!

Rats and monkeys

Site Update

Due to some issues we have been having with PayPal sending incorrect payment data, we are going to have the MayDay Sale begin at 11:00 PM on May 29th.

During this hour you will be able to accumulate Mayday Bonus Credit early, and if you have any issues with your payment not going through properly, please make a Bug Report on the forums / contact any online administrator so we can have that fixed up in time for the Teo Eggs' entrance.

The Teo Eggs will enter the bonus credit page exactly at midnight on the 30th, also known as a minute after 11:59 PM on Sunday.

Hopefully this will alleviate any issues with PayPal mishaps as well as rollover lag.

Remember Teo artists, your deadline for Teos is midnight on the 28th/ 11:59 PM on the 27th!

The base artwork for the Simii has been changed, per your vote a couple of weeks ago! You can now access the new PSD for the genus, as well as five pets have been released on the new lines for you to capture in Castaway Canyon.

Lastly, the watercolor customs will be placed up for votes tomorrow!
