Slowly getting back into Springs stuff. slowly.
From June 27-July 4 I will be leading a group (terrifying) on a SERVE project in the great city of Edmonton. I will not be available at all. All of my online activities are going to be suspended for a week. Because of this (and because of my backlog of stuff), Fat Rabbit will be tucking away his hat for July 3 (he'll be back on the 10th!) and if you have questions about July's breeding season (Avis/Mikri), you need to ask them before this Friday. When I return I'll try to get the summer event (you've noticed the corresponding badge, right?) up, but there's also a chance that I will be going camping the week after that (July 12-18) to a place that doesn't even have cell service. So July is going to be fairly interrupted.
Speaking of badges, badges for past events have be retroactively added to pets who participated.
First of all, an apology for the lack of anything - I've been in a bit of a funk lately and haven't been able to get to anything Springs-related (which really sucks, because I really wanted to make a dent in the May offspring and get those customs rolled out. alas).
The Landscape art contest is over and there are so many gorgeous and well-thought-out entries! I haven't decided anything yet, but I will get to that soonish.
The two raffles that were in the gallery have now been decided, congrats to the winners! If you're still looking for something to do, there are still two contest hybrids in the gallery waiting for the minimums on their contests to be met.
I'll have the July Breeder Search deviation up shortly after this.
Just touching base with you guys on a few things. C:
First off, winners for the Hybrid Naming contest! The winning names are:Favki, Gravki, Zhimka, Birkeda, Irex, Xytogrif, Lhedonas and Liska
Congrats to the winners, who I'm actually not sure who you are yet because I haven't gone back through my notes to see who suggested what name. I will try to get to that quick-ish. Prizes for this will be handled at a later date, so if you've won, you can start thinking now about what you want - you can get a complete custom, or you can breed the parent species (either that you own or that you have permission to breed with) to the hybrid that you won with influences on what you want the baby to look like. I'll have more on this later.
Second, just a little note about Paypal - the site has changed a fair bit over the last few months, including the payment options. If you are ordering from me and paying with USD through Paypal, I ask that you select the 'Paying for Goods/Services' option - I will accept paying the fee. Someone I know got in trouble for having people send payments through the friends/family option and it's not worth the few cents each transaction costs me. Thanks!
Third, activity in the Springs is going to basically drop off for a while. I will be working behind the scenes on COs and offspring, and FR prizes and the like, but don't expect an event or many UFA pets to drop. The weather has been incredibly kind to us this year, which means that I'm spending more time in the garden (and time spent on the computer while it's light outside is highly frowned upon by my family, which makes getting work done during the day increasingly difficult). I will still be here to answer notes and messages, but I may not get back to you right away.
Fourth, there's just over a week left to get your entries in for the landscape art contest - I've got two entries so far that are awesome! You can check them out on the Contest page.
And the winners of the Shift Festivities are!
Below is a list of usernames who have won the raffle. Choices will start at the top of the list and move downwards one at a time - I will mention you in a new comment to get your attention when it's your turn to pick - please reply to that comment as I have disabled comments on the shift prairies for the time being. C:
Do not hassle the people above you when they choose so as to have them not choose the one you want, and please don't complain if the one you really wanted is taken when it comes to your turn. :c
Also, for the breeding season, if you are editing your forms to add items after the slots have been filled in, please let me know via a new comment so I can catch the item additions. C:
280415 Happy First day of Shift!
I will not be sending updates for Days 3, 4, and 5. You will have to come here and find them every day. C;
Each ticket is day exclusive! You can only redeem Day Three on the third day of Shift (May 1) and so on!
Additionally, there will be a number of events to participate in!
in the forums and look for new forums to be posted with new events.
Each event that you participate in will gain you one ticket for the festival raffle. The raffle prizes are nine special mutation prairie gryphons. These Shift Prairie Gryphons are only available during the festival and the mutation cannot be bred. Activity Center
