So… I decided to hold another free coloring slot, reblog/ raffle thingy since the last one was pretty fun. This one will be open until 5 pm EST whenIgethomefromwork . Just remember to please reblog your user name and ID number.

I’m also hoping I can do this type of thing a little more often. Not sure how often so maybe once every couple of weeks, once a month…?

Frey, #90!

Sometimes I feel a bit sorry for site artists and how little they are paid for their work. If the information in the breeding forum is updated and correct, then I earn more RL money in six hours than they do in ten days to complete their lists, and I’m working a bottom-end, lowly job. Can’t we tip site artists when we really love their work? I’m not talking about painted breedings though since I don’t use these coins.

No ok but see here is wherein the flaw in this argument lies.  You may have a ‘lowly job’ in your eyes and get paid so much more, but being a site artist is not a full time job.  It isn’t even a part-time job, really — it’s contract work, and it relies on a site income that is MUCH smaller than what a big business earns to support itself.  What Aywas pays is what it can manage in supporting all aspects of the site, and it goes up or down based on the income it accrues.

I will always get frustrated at people saying Aywas pays crappily! How dare Aywas treat great artists like this!  But Aywas doesn’t make what larger businesses make in a month.  If it did, Aywas would of course pay more.  But no one aside from a select few know how things really are financially, and no one should comment on how terrible Aywas is in its practices without that knowledge.  Aywas cares about its artists (and I adore my team, for the record :|) and we do what we can with our resources.

On the topic of the breeding system, let’s consider the fact I know a few good breeding artists who were randomly never given lists again even though they turned their lists in and asked for another one. Not fired officially, just never given a new breeding list despite being on the team and asking for them.

If an artist never got one they need to let me know or bump messages. Often artists hiatus and i miss messages saying they returned since its been a long time. Or there isnt enough work for them… We have fluctuated a lot in need over the past few months. I havent needed as much LBC for instance.

I really wish I could discuss how frequently Frey fails to communicate with artists properly with other breeding artists, but everyone seems to be friends with her, and defends her no matter what. We were recently shorted multiple days (close to 3) on our lists, and no one seemed bothered by it…

I usually give an extra day to make sure i can get all artists their lists at one time. The problem i often face are late artists that turn lists in one or two days later. It mostly was to compromise, but i have changed to being stricter now. I know some people are not in Aywas time zone, but the leeway screws up payments and scheduling in the end. Other times if it is two days, i am not home or at my computer. I do try to be around on those days but i am not always able to be, or for the entire day.

Sorry for not being on as much, Ay folks. Some personal stuff in-account is stressing me out really bad, including a lot of frankly unexpected pressure, so even typing the URL is giving me anxiety attacks. I’m still working on owed work, but beyond that a lot of the joy Aywas gave me is kinda gone…

I replied to you about the MBC thing. I don’t know if you received it, but I am awaiting an answer on something first before getting back to you.

houston we have a problem

is anyone else (if you’re a breeding artist, that is) having trouble accessing the aywas drive?? or is it just me
because i’m trying to get to some PSDs for my list and nothing is working :|| :| 

The password changed. I sent it to my crew but if i missed someone, poke me. Any painted or PBC artist has to ask Slash for it.
