Hey guys! I finally managed to get my girlfriend to join Aywas, so if anyone has a chance, give her a warm welcome? :) She’s Raja over at #59230, and is a bit shy on petsites, but she’s a total sweetheart gooberbutt.

i mean for RL currency, haha, i’ve worked both kinds of contracts for them — USD and site currency

I’d heard first-hand that they fired a majority of their artists and…

Hi, breeding administrator here!  Tay explained a lot, but I have to add a bit of my personal comment as well.

Three years ago things were a lot less organized, and the USD offerings were new at the time — a lot different than things now, where we do indeed have greater opportunities and structure.  I manage a team of contract artists and temporary contracts were offered quite often these past five months.  There will always be GP-only artists since we do have a budget, but a stable number have received contract pay constantly for a long time now.  We expand even more, and with the introduction of new Painted coins which Slash (the owner) handles, many artists are paid in straight USD.  Platinum breeding coins also pay USD to the artists.

Back then we offered USD incentives for quick workers, which was done away with the more we rolled contract work out.  Radioactive breedings had that option, but we have phased it out quite some time ago.  Even one year can drastically change a feature on a site.  Whatever it was that caused you to not be hired back then, policies and processes have long been revamped and greater offerings have been established.

I’ve noticed a trend lately with folks submitting predicts for half LBCs: heavily edited offspring with almost all parent edits used, and no semblance of the species base left.  I have had to reject a record number of these offspring because compared to the parents, the babies have almost nothing left to them that resembles the bases, or is too highly edited over the max crystal that was used on the parents.

Half LBC gives one baby — which is fine, it means you’re limited to what you can distribute, but it also means you can’t use everything imaginable on the parents.  You still have to be fair in your edit choices.  If you have a Gold level Melo and a Blue level Melo, you can’t make an offspring that is high Gold pushing Silver.  Two Gold pets still need to keep within the realm of Gold, but also have to balance the edits out some.  It’s case-by-case basis in what needs to be truly balanced, so it’s hard to define other than by thinking of each edit in relation to the base.

I hate having to reject because of this, but I try to add suggestions in the reject notifications that would better balance the offspring out.  Staff as a whole agree that you can’t have mega-edited babies with the coin.  Granted, you see a lot of this with the Painted LBC, but that’s a coin with different rules and allowances.

So be mindful of what you submit for Half LBC.

Cheap Customs For Sale!

More cheap customs for sale.  Still slowly cleaning out the lair of customs that I think need better homes.

I probably have PSDs for most of them, so if you need one just ask!

I can’t remember who it is and/or if the checker changed…

But I need to get ahold of them to thank them and to let them know that there’s actually a glow around the tail and it’s not unclipped shading xD

(It’s my past self’s horribly attempt at glow)

Me! Just submit again so I’m aware, lol. I thought it was unclipped shading!

I have a problem and it involves fuu-dogs

HOW IS YOUR MBC FROM MARCH 23, 2014 ASSIGNED ALREADY? I have an MBC pair from september, 2013 not assigned yet. Was it reassigned on march 23 or something?
I do not understand. :|

Personal breeding so it’s in my queue for predicts fsdlj I’m sorry if this looks as if the queue is caught up a lot! It shows up as assigned even if an artist takes their own breeding for predicts.
