Art Usage Reminder

Site Update

Goto News Post



It would benefit our community to go over a couple of art courtesy guidelines:

- Please don't provide other people's customs (without their permission) as examples for commissions, GCC requests, breedings, etc. If you are an artist and shown a custom as an example and don't see that custom in your commissioner's lair, ask the commissioner for proof that the owner permitted it as an example.

- Please don't provide specific images or artwork you do not own (without permission) as examples for commissions, GCC requests, breedings, etc. Using these as "inspiration" is becoming an issue because artists are being encouraged to copy these images. Instead, give the artist some description of your idea, keywords to look up on google, provide your own drawings, or stock images that have the appropriate permissions.

- You can easily generate a color palette from an image you like by using this site so providing an image for a color palette should not be necessary. This site also provides palettes for your use.

- Do not save custom images and upload them to outside websites if you don't own the custom in question on your account, or you are not the artist of the custom in question. This is becoming a problem for custom owners and artists who don't like seeing their work uploaded to Dropboxes or image hosting sites by people they either do not know, or do not want to "save" their customs or display them.


Showing courtesy to your fellow user and artist is important when it comes to a community like this running smoothly, so please keep these guidelines in mind for the future.

Art Gallery Extension

Contests

Goto News Post

We're in need of a few more entries for our Ice/Snow Sculpture theme this week, so you have until January 12th at 11:59 p.m. to get any last-minute submissions in! Your task is to create an Aywas-related "sculpture" using ice or snow, but you can also achieve this with other materials that still maintain a snowy/icy look (e.g. cotton balls). Official Aywas Stock is not permitted, but you can submit digital/traditional art for this theme as well.

Good luck!

In the meantime...

Some new themes have also been added!

January 11th - January 17th: Weather
January 18th - January 24th: Dosk and/or Condyl*
January 25th - January 31st: Puzzles
February 1st - February 7th: Trinket Pets*
February 8th - February 14th: Valentine's Day*
February 15th - February 21st: Chinese New Year


If you want to get a head start on the Weather theme, you may! This is a very broad theme, so you can use any medium you like, just keep it Aywas-related in some way as always. Official Aywas Stock is not permitted for this one.

Have fun!

Coin Reprice & Pet Shop Reminder

Site Update

Goto News Post

magic_derpbreedingcoin.pngmagic_radioactivebreedingcoin.png

Just a quick note that the prices of the Derp Breeding Coin and Radioactive Breeding Coin in the Premium Shop have changed due to queue demand. We are currently unsure if this will be a permanent price change or temporary change, and it will be assessed again as the queues return to manageable sizes.


In addition, Miksa has a quick reminder for you!

miksa_icon.png

Hello everyone! I wanted to give you a bit of a heads up that I'll be changing the stock in my shop come January 11th! That's tomorrow! So if you want to own any of these pretty pets I currently am selling, you should buy them before January 11th. On January 11th they will be permanently retired and new pets will take their place!

Trading Post

Site Update

Goto News Post



We now have a Trading Post linked from the Shops tab. This will be replacing the "Pet Trade" feature (which still exists, but was taken off the menu).

The Trading Post allows you to create lots of pets, items, and currency, and other people can make offers on it. You can link your lots in forum posts so that people have easy access to them.

Please note that because Aywas is steadily increasing in size, it's best to do all trades through the trading post to ensure you are getting what you agreed on. Trading your GP for BP (or the other way) should be especially done through the trading post so you can confirm you are receiving what you want.

Note: Please don't add thousands of items to one lot. While we will be implementing a limit later, for now make sure you are being reasonable with the feature when adding items from your inventory.
