Breeding Updates & Pet Shop Warning

Site Update

Hello everyone! :D <3

Mauri here - I just wanted to give you a couple of updates, fixes, and reminders!
Due to some unfortunate circumstances I've been homeless and couch hopping for a few weeks now. This also means that my access to my computer and/or internet has been very sporadic. Thankfully my living situation finally sorted itself out and come mid-July I'll have a place to stay! In the meantime, I know that I've been very very slow to respond to PMs recently and for that I apologize. I've been prioritizing my online-time to keep lists moving and the breeding system running in the background as best as I can, so my inbox has fell to the side a bit.

Onto the reminders!

Please remember to check your HBC and HBP breedings and check the "will have predicts" box if you intend to submit a prediction for it. We are catching up on that queue and as we hit more recent breedings we will be assuming that any breeding over a month old that does not have that box checked is not intending to have predicts submitted. So be sure to check it if you want to submit any!

If you submit a breeding with a breeding add-on that requires notes/user input (example being the Hybrid Genetics Kit) and your breeding does not have the required notes at the time of assignment, your entire breeding will be refunded. Be sure to put all of the necessary notes in for your breedings!

Just a reminder that I am basically always looking to hire new artists for GP contracts! Even if I don't need artists for a certain coin at one point in time, I keep the applications on file for future reference when I do need them. Currently I actively need MBC, BC, HBC, EBC, and LBC artists. Perhaps some RBC artists too! Feel free to submit an application; they can be found here.


In addition, Miksa has a quick reminder for you!

Hello everyone! I wanted to give you a bit of a heads up that I'll be changing the stock in my shop come July 5th! So if you want to own any of these pretty pets I currently am selling, you should buy them before July 5th. On July 5th they will be permanently retired and new pets will take their place!


And now for some updates!

The poll has spoken! The Greater Fertility Potion is now stocking in the BP Shop for 18,000,000 BP.

The Speedy Breeding Ticket has reverted back to its original use after being temporarily retired. It can now be used to skip the queue for many types of breedings! This item does not let you pick an artist, rather it just makes your breeding *speedy*. :3

As such, it will now stock in the USD shop for 35.00 USD.

The Painted Breeding Mistakes thread is now being handled by Kita (#3988)! The old thread is being gone through and will be finished soon.

The Breeding Mistakes 4.0 thread will also be changing hands soon also - the replacement is in the process of being trained! n_n

Glad to see -SOMETHING- finally being done with the breeding mistakes threads. It's stinking ridiculous to have people (recipients AND artists both) be kept waiting for months and months because nobody has been efficiently managing the threads.
(especially since an artist was recently banned because no one could be bothered to keep up with breeding mistakes and they weren't able to devote time to aywas by the time the mistake ruling was finally passed).

The situation you're talking about actually involves me so I can comment - the artist was contacted in January, ignored two fix helpers and an admin, all while actively taking on other breeding work and being active on site. I know this because I would contact the helpers monthly asking if there was any progress after I was told it was indeed an error to be fixed. The artist then, as far as I am aware, stated that they would not be doing the fix at all, leading to their ban. This in all took a little under 6 months to come to pass.

I understand that sometimes waits can be frustrating on all sides, but please don't try to misrepresent the facts - people are not banned on a whim, and it takes a lot for staff to decide that the step is needed. There is a structure set in place - artists have a time frame to respond in, and we try to work with them if there are issues preventing them from doing so immediately, but if they ignore the messages sent to them then we cannot organise how best to move forward. Ignoring messages, or refusing to do the fixes, is cause for temporary penalties, which are made permanent if the situation does not change.

That particular artist HAD time to do the fix WHEN they did the breeding, and in some time following that. Because the breeding mistakes thread took so stinking long to get a response about that breeding, their RL circumstances had changed enough that they no longer had time to devote to aywas, meaning that they literally are not able to make the time to fix something MONTHS after the fact. So yes, they had to acknowledge that they couldn't fix it and therefore, would not be fixing it.
(at least they had the decency to tell you guys instead of leaving you hanging)

I'm not the one misrepresenting things. If the mistakes thread had been kept up to date and got rulings out in decent time-frames, that particular user WOULD have been able to fix that offspring, and would have done so. It's not their fault that the ruling took so long to get back that things had changed enough to prevent them from doing so, THAT is on aywas and its staff.

I never said nor implied anyone was 'banned on a whim.'
Please don't twist my words.

I was mostly pointing out that one of aywas' big shortcomings (in this case, the inability to get things done in a timely turn-around) was a large part of what led to at least one banning.

Glad you're safe!!

Quick question, does this mean the half a lesser breeding coin lists will start going through? Thanks!

Be well! *hugs*

Regardless, I'm not getting into a pissing match with you. I can't stand condescending/patronizing tones (which you already adopted a bit in your first response there) and as I'm certain that tone will continue, I'm bowing out before I eventually lose my temper.
