A BIG thank you to everyone who participated!! I didn't expect to get this many entries and I loved seeing all the different ideas. Winners, you can note me with the prize information (what you want drawn etc...) and I'll add your Sindow coins to your bank accounts.
Right now the import sheet backgrounds are all over the place and I've been really wanting something a little more uniform instead. I've made these:

I'm holding a contest to get some different import images since I'm not all too happy wit
2015 Event CalendarI've decided to make an event calendar that tells you when events are starting and ending. That way, you can better plan what you want to do with your Sindow and when. Things are subject to change, so I'll update it if there is a change.More Like This
Newbie Raffles from me will downsize just a bit. From 12 raffle Sindows to 6.
Holiday Imports from me will downsize as well to 2 holiday Sindows instead of 4. But, I will have custom slots available for holiday Sindows so you can order your own if you'd like.
If you want to hold an event, please note me with when you'd like to hold it and what it's about. If I approve, I'll let you know and add it to the calendar.
Also, if you want to add your birthday as well, just let me know.

15th: Avian Official Release Date
The Avian Sindow: General InformationHistory: Avian Sindows were created after the success of the Standard and Variant Sindow. The scientists wanted something different, though, so they decided to do away with the big cat and horse genes and replace them with house cat and bird genes. Subsequently, the Avian Sindow was born. These were meant as pets, but like cats, some people decide they don't want them anymore and let them go. These Avian's end up feral and can breed in the wild as well.More Like This
Size: 23-25 cm (9-10in) in height (to shoulder), 50 cm (22.1 in) from tip of snout to end of body, and the tail 57cm (29.1 in). The wingspan is 53cm.
Weight: 4 to 5.5 kg (8.8 to 11.5 pounds) The wings and feathers weigh close to nothing, so they are about the same weight as your average house cat.
Diet: In the wild, Avian's will prey upon small rodents, other birds, insects, and reptiles. When kept as pets they are fed raw meat or specialized kibble. Normal cat food won't kill them and sometimes it's cheaper
Group Training 2014/15*Edit 1/1/15*: I've decided to extend the date on this a couple weeks for those who may have forgotten that this was going on. It's not mandatory, but if you're Sindow is untrained it cannot breed nor can it enter in any events. New end date is 1/18/15. (You can win a free custom Avian slot for participating in this.)More Like This
What is group training? It's where everyone, including myself, who has an untrained Sindow gets their three training images done.
Group training will be done at the same time every year, but that doesn't mean you can't complete your Sindows training at any other time.
This year, since the group and the species are kind of new, I will not be hosting any Christmas events. I will have prompts where anyone can participate, trained Sindow or not, but not an actual event.
Group training is meant to support everyone in getting their pieces done, so they can have their Sindow trained and ready to enter events and breed.
Daily/Weekly activitiesI've been thinking about some daily and/or weekly activities that can earn small amounts Sindow coins so those who don't win competitions/events can buy things from the shop as well. I'll list some ideas and you can suggest some as well.More Like This
Group Chat - The idea of group chat has been proposed. Should we dedicate a day/time to it or just talk when we want to?
Weekly prompts - They will be simple ideas to get your creative juices flowing. It won't matter if your Sindow is trained, untrained, registered, or unregistered. This will be for everyone. You'd either draw or write about your Sindow(s) doing something related to the prompt. Those who enter will get SSP for the type of drawing or writing they did and also get a small amount of Sindow coins.
Wishing Well I may end up calling it something different, but there will be a journal titled wishing well (or whatever I call it) and it will have several features.
