Cash Auctions - Liquidation


Goto News Post

It is with a heavy heart that Aywas brings you the opportunity to participate in the cash auctions of hundreds of custom pets. The reason for this is that the previous owner of the pets has caused us to fall nearly $5000 in debt due to chargebacks. I have a rant thread that goes into some detail regarding the situation.

We have to seek out a way to make ourselves whole for the damage done to us--both in terms of money lost and potential damage to the good standing of our payments account. As you can understand, if the chargebacks (which now number over a hundred in the past two months from this one individual) cause us to lose our payment accounts, that would be devastating. A high number of chargebacks can cause payment processors to cancel accounts with a company due to high risk.

Our PayPal account is not currently affected by this problem, but I have no idea if the volume of chargebacks on Amazon Payments could affect it in the future.

The USD Auctions page reflects all of the custom pets that we have decided to reclaim from the player who filed the chargebacks. You can pledge a bid on the pet by entering an amount and an invoice e-mail address.

Please note:

1. Bids made through USD auctions cannot be canceled.

2. Please place a bid only if you are committed to buying the pet if you win it.

3. Pets come "as is" as we have no idea what rules may have been placed on them. We will help mediate any issues between the new owner and any previous owners.

4. We would prefer accepting payment on our Amazon Payments account to prevent the delinquent account (it's in the negative) from being sent to collections and/or legal action taken against us for not having the disputed funds. If it cannot be paid through this, we will accept PayPal.

5. All auctions end in approximately seven days. End dates are listed on the auctions themselves.

6. When the auctions are over, your total bill (all your auctions won) will be invoiced to you. Upon successful payment, all pets won will be placed into your lair.

Some highlights below:

It is not a usual thing for Aywas to take repossession of pets on a banned account. This situation is unique, grave, and we hope will not have to be repeated in the future. Ultimately, we appreciate any support, because this is one of the worst situations we have found ourselves in.

As a final note, any comments making threats toward the individual who filed the chargeback will be removed without notice. This happened on tumblr before and it will not be permitted here. Believe me, I am just as angry as you are, but threats will only make things worse, and they cannot be tolerated.

Staff Shuffle

Site Update

Goto News Post

As many will remember, late last year I wrote about a few issues that the customs area of the site was having due to Graymare's injury preventing her from working as often or as long as she previously had.

I'm sad to say that as that injury hasn't shown signs of improvement, Gray has chosen to step down from her position as Custom Pet admin.

Having worked closely with Gray on the custom pet aspect of the site, I was asked if I would step up to the plate and I have agreed to give it a shot alongside my other positions with Custom Items and Copyright.

There will no doubt be some teething problems as I get settled, and I ask if you can be patient with me while I get my mind around which lines are legacy, and "what do you mean I do that too?" moments. I know it means likely a few frustrations as you throw URLs at my head, but I hope those will be few and far between.

My priority right now is clearing out the custom queues, and then I will turn towards the mountainous task of the crystal check (which I will address in another news post in the near future). I know that people are waiting in all areas, and I hope to resolve that soon.

While I can never fill Gray's hooves, I hope that I can do some justice to the position and keep everyone rolling in beautiful customs.

Welcome to May!

Site Update

Goto News Post


Welcome to the marvelous month of May!

Go on an adventure with one of our beautiful new GP Shop pets!


And seize the day with one of our jubilant BP Shop pets!


If you colored one of these awesome 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!


In the mood for a refreshing treat? Try the Essence of May 2015!
This orange juice-inspired bottle will transform your active pet into one of the monthly colorations above at random.


A quick premium monthly item announcement: the Boring Egg has been transformed into an Enchanted Net. Both the Enchanted Net and the Long Island Iced Teo (formerly the Teo Ticket) will be activated soon as well.

Have a party, it's your birthday!
The Flower Moon Lunaris you see above will be reigning over the skies through the entire month of May; a new Lunaris will take over on June 1st.

Don't forget to check out the birthday link to claim your gift from Aywas on your big day! Need to change your birthday? Click here!

The new monthly contests have been announced!

June Monthly Pets - BP Shop: Enter

June Monthly Pets - GP Shop: Enter

June Monthly Customs
Theme: Water

Good luck with your entries!


The Nova custom creators remain in the respective GP/BP shops for May, then will cycle back into the Premium Outlet for June before returning to the GP/BP shops for two months.

Coding Corner
A monthly update from behind the scenes.

We're coming off of quite a busy programming month and hope that you enjoyed all of the updates!
Now that some of our mad dashing behind the scenes has stabilized, you can look forward to more regular developments in other areas. :3

We have quite a few things planned for the month, but one thing that I specifically wanted to mention was that we're carrying the egg theme through May, so the Easter/Spring Painter & associated Seasonal Shop (selling a few fun inexpensive treats for BP) will be opening this week. There'll be a separate post for all of those goodies, so just keep an eye out!

Be sure to also check out the Early May Updates if you haven't read up on them already.


Cheers to May!

Monthly HA Contest


Goto News Post

The winning HA sets have been placed into their respective shops!

Last month earned the following:
GP Set: 395 GP per artist
BP Set: 92,400,000 BP per artist
Premium Set: 3590 PP per artist

Want in on the action? Well, phase one - the basing contest - is open and waiting for entries!
Head here to submit your design.

As a note, it has been added that you should not use the mannequins for the full set models. This is due to some anatomical differences that can make sets look differently then when worn by the default HA bases.

Early May Updates

Site Update

Goto News Post

Here are the early May updates that you can enjoy in anticipation of the other major May updates!

First, let's welcome in a brand new batch of Jeweled Crystal pets!

Aren't those fancy and fun?

The Jeweled Hybrid Crystal has some new talent to show off too!

But we all know who the star of the month is... the Rock Custom Crystal!

Enjoy your maus responsibly over the next two months ;)

Let's talk about some new breeding add-ons! Those are always fun, right? These are items that randomize the edits resulting from a breeding coming from the BC team according to a keyword you specify (so, Breeding Coins, Holiday Breeding Coins, Eggnogs, Transitional Fossil Eggs, Dragon Lotuses, etc). It's sort of like putting the fun from GCC into the breeding team.

The Basic Edit Randomizer will let you provide one keyword to randomize the edits of your breeding. This is your Premium Item for the month. Hope you enjoy it! It was requested by suggestion.

The Basic Edit Randomizer works just fine if you want to combine it with an Edit Potion or a Grand Edit Potion, but in case you want a two-for-one deal (hey, it saves you a breeding add-on slot), you can get the higher edit ones that provide 50% and 75%, respectively, along with the randomization based on keyword.

You can find the Edit Randomizer (50% Edits) in the BP Shop. The Grand Edit Randomizer (75% Edits) is in the USD Shop.

Do you hear that? It sounds like scratching coming from inside the egg... and almost like one of those alerts.

MAYDAY! Teos incoming!

The MAYDAY! Sale is coming up this month. It actually doesn't have anything to do with May day (today), the sale is scheduled for May 28th, exactly six months after the Black Friday Sale.

The Teo Team has produced a lot of awesome Teos for this sale, so feel free to watch them being added into the MAYDAY! Teo Claim Page throughout the month. If you see one you happen to like, start preparing your Bonus Credit to claim it! The Teo Eggs will be the same as all other times -- starting at $100 Bonus Credit on the first day, then $75, then $50, then $25.

What better way to start building up your bonus credit for Teos than to pop open the Mystery Box for the start of May? And what special feature are we funding this time? Well...

Eggs! Egg-cellent!

We have a new genus coming out to add a little spice to Adventure. You'll be able to hunt around Adventure for these eggs (both site pet eggs and custom making eggs). We'd like to have a hefty batch of site pets available to hatch from these special eggs so there are plenty to collect, so we plan on raising funds to dump 50-75 Metal Design Tickets into the MDT feature to let the artist team blissfully submerge themselves in coloring this genus.

With the speed and skill of the MDT team, we're bound to get a ton of awesome looking pets for these eggs in a quick turnaround. That means we get to implement them faster :)

Not to mention, excess Mystery Box funds can go toward expanding the PBC budget to comfortably handle our new output. The new PBC team is amazingly productive and is making 3-4x more babies a week than they used to, which is amazing but a little scary for finances, especially when it wasn't planned to expand so quickly. We can manage it, though!

The Mystery Box will be available until 11:59 PM on the 2nd. They're obtained by spending $5.00 in GP or the USD Shop.

(If you use the USD Shop, PM me when you've made your total purchase with the final $ amount to get tickets! Yes, you can combine GP with USD too.)

Okay, that's all we have for now!
Look forward to the other half of the May updates!
