Oekaki Board + Programming!

Site Update

We have a brand new feature for everyone to enjoy! The new Oekaki Art Boards are available for users to draw on. If you are familiar with oekaki boards, go right ahead and enjoy!

In case you didn't know, an oekaki board is a java applet that allows you to draw right on your web browser and upload the picture to the Aywas Oekaki Galleries. There, other players can enjoy and comment on your artwork. Be sure to read the Knowledge Base on the Oekaki Boards to help you configure Java to use the boards, as well as read over the rules.

A new forum board has been created to discuss the oekaki boards, as well as help troubleshoot issues with Java and your browser if you are having difficult accessing the boards.

The Mystery Box is open again, funding a month's work time from this new coder!

We really like this new coder (one of our community members, Rems (#26), so you might know them if you joined Aywas early on). They set up the applet and its gallery/board feature within a day, which is very impressive. This coder has April off university to work on Aywas and gave us a flat rate for her time, so let's see if we can hire her on.

Mystery Box Tickets come free with every purchase of $5 in GP or USD Items. This lasts for roughly 24 hours, same as last time. Yes, the PMBC sale is stacking with it! As always, if you decide to go the USD Items route, send me a message with your total when you are done.

Assuming we are able to hire her on for the month, stop by the Suggestions forum and post any ideas you have for her to make, so we can make the most of our month. New features, additions or upgrades to old features, post support on ideas you like, etc. (Please note we likely won't be editing Adventure because we're currently in the process of working on it with another programmer.)

On another note, we are currently five SCC bases away from running another BP Sink Event, so if you're an SCC artist and want to make a base for that event, contact me! It'd be nice to start off April with one like we did with March.

Enjoy the oekaki boards, looking forward to seeing what everyone draws!

Hooray for the lovely new programmer! :D Also, for the first time in months I actually had BP to spend on a BP sink, and I literally just sunk it all into a MDT omg. Whyyyy /sobs

(Also, if you're one of the people who is having Java issues with the Oekaki, I posted a simple guide on the troubleshooting thread/forum, I suggest checking it out~!)

Danny (#2511) at least your not pondering overdrawing your account? x.x

At this rate with all the sale at the tail end of the months, all I keep winding up with is currently useless credit.=(

Erithan (#49253) You might miss this one but you'll still be in the vicinity of a Breeding Season (new hybrids, a bonus stack comes out for bonus credit). They're 1st - 7th usually
