Remind yourselves to read up on some Wolfhome Therapy, and remember that we are all exceptional individuals and deserve respect, no matter how much our views of another differ.

With the cold of winter upon us, some of you might be feeling down or just feeling those blues that accompany the chilly season, remember you are Never Alone and there is always someone willing to offer you advice or be a friendly shoulder to lean on.

The Event Committee has been working really hard these days on making some awesome looking critters for you, they have opened up a Design Fundraiser which any and all funds will be going towards event prizes. The design fundraiser is like any other character sale, but the funds you donate go back into the community by becoming event prizes! Take a look and see if you can find a special somebody, just for you!

Announcements

Congratuations and a big Welcome back to Fik for rejoining the Forum Department as well as to Kuvi (formerly Bonsai) for being repromoted to Gamma! Welcome back to your departments you two!

Eek, Criminals and Maggot have joined forces with the Event Committee and we can’t wait to see what kind of new and exciting events they have to offer! Congratulations you three!

A new Team has been introduced to the Wolfhome Forums! The Relations Team! They will be in charge of managing offsite media and trying to promote Wolfhome using other platforms! Interested in applying? See applications here!

We now have an Artist Review Document! This is an offsite document hosted by Wolfhome which will contain both negative and positive reviews from users who have had experience with artists on Wolfhome. Be sure to check out the announcement in the link above for more information!

The Wolfhome Fairy has been brought back to life!! The Wolfhome Fairy is a Wolfhome helper that appears on chat to give out free deltas to members of the community who may not be able afford to have deltas or don’t have the means of acquiring them. She goes from public room to public room in search of new and old users alike. There’s a catch, though! Once you find her, the Wolfhome Fairy will ask you a perplexing question or riddle. You must answer her correctly in order to receive your prize! You can participate if you have deltas! Just please bare in mind that free accounts will be a higher priority.

Eventful has a Treasure Chest!!

Eventful’s Treasure Chest is a point-system developed by Xina! Each event will  now have a stamp associated with it, and it will be found under the prize section on the original post of the topic. If you participate in the event, a stamp will be added next to your name on the thread once the event is over. Once you earn a certain number of stamps, you may trade them in for various prizes and permissions!
Once you trade in stamps, they disappear, so spend them wisely! Be sure to give Xina a big Thank you for developing this idea!!

Updates!

  • Regarding Rule 1-C, there will no longer be reminders issued! From now on, warnings will be sent out in regards to a breach of this rule. Make sure to stay out of trouble!
  • Regarding the previous Rule 22:  The Administration decided to honor the majority vote and are no longer going to be enforcing it. However, since the votes were so close and some members of the community expressed concern about getting rid of the rule, they are conducting a trial run for an undecided amount of time to see how well the markets fare without it. If everything runs smoothly with this rule being gone, they will not reinstate it.
  • What this means for you:
    – The rule regarding character transaction (C)s and permissions is gone for the time being. You will no longer receive reminders on your topics for copyrights and permissions; therefore, you will also no longer receive warnings regarding these things.
    – We will not be accepting reports for topics lacking (C)s/permissions at this time. During this trial run, all reports that we receive regarding these things will not be counted against you as false reporting (unless you continue to do so after a couple of reminders). We will be closing the report and sending you a reminder/explanation that we have changed the rules.
    – If you do find a case of someone falsifying permissions, breaking a ToS, or providing improper copyrights, gather proof and evidence that they are doing so and then report it. All reports made regarding permissions, ToS’s, and copyrights must have all proof and evidence brought forth at the time of the report. We will not be digging through the forum to look for these things ourselves. If a report does not provide adequate proof, it will be closed until more proof can be provided.

January Member of the Month!

Now you can- just head on over to the official to take a peak at the beautiful entries we have so far. A huge shoutout to those who have chosen to participate, your contributions mean a lot to the community!

I’m Dreaming of a Colorful Winter!: The holiday season is upon Wolfhome, and it’s time to get creative! Eventful loves getting creative and all this white snow gets a bit boring.. Can you help me out by helping make my decorations not so boring? They seem a bit bland right now I want them to have more color and be more unique! This event is all about decorating various holiday items, and it will run from December 4th, 2016 to January 14th, 2017! Make sure you stop by to show us your holiday cheer!

Wolfhome Movie Auditions!: Welcome, young actors and actresses, to the first ever Wolfhome Movie Auditions! Has your character felt like they belong in the spotlight? Do they crave the life of a movie star? Well step right up and audition for a movie! Your character could get the main part!

New Year, New You, New Goals!: New Years is a time for new goals! Many people come up with New Year resolutions, but often fail to stick with it or meet their goal. By visualizing yourself successfully reaching your goal, you can motivate yourself to keep working and sticking with it! Our goal is to see YOU reach your goals, and to encourage you every step of the way! We hope to see the Wolfhome community come out and participate in this event, which will run from January 1st, 2017 to January 15th, 2017!

Takatia has been spotted creeping on some of the Wolfhome Community members! I wonder what she’s up to…

Make sure to have a stellar January Wolfhome!

Sooon it will be Christmas daaaay

Announcements!

  • Epilepsy has been promoted to Forum Moderator! Congrats!
  • Suspria and Bedagi have been promoted to Beta! Hoorah!
  • Welcome back to Ink (formally Chicago) and Blackbird (formally Akemi) to the Administration!
  • Ricochet tried to pull a fast one on us and has changed their name to Hygge!

Updates!

  • The WH Forum & Chat Rules have been updated! Check out the changes  here!
  • Rule 1-C was a hot topic these past couple weeks, and it has been decided that nipples will not be allowed in any way shape or form, HOWEVER! They will be acceptable on ferals. Check out part of the discussion here and the final word on it here.
  • What’s that?! a NEW subforum?! The suggestion to introduce Roleplaying onto the forums has now been implemented and we are incredibly excited to see our new Character Lore subforum being put to use! Check out the announcement for it here.

Suggestions!

  1. Fellzor has brought up saving poses and rooms when an account runs out of deltas, to avoid having to reupload or delete them. [saving 3 days to a week to allow time to acquire more deltas] Ultimately it seems UD will have to make the final call, but feel free to leave your two cents on the matter!

Promotions!

Xina and Vice have been added to the Event Committee, Congrats! We look forward to what you come up with!

Events, Events, Events!

Every year, Remembrance Day comes and goes and we all take a moment to reflect the sacrifices made by many men and women who have and are serving their countries in the name of freedom. To honour those who have, and who are selflessly serving their countries so that we may experience and enjoy freedom today. We ask you to write either a poem or something nice about a loved one you know who is serving, has served or have lost while serving. It may be a pet, family member, friend, aquaintance or whoever. You may also draw (sketch, finished, etc) a memorial piece or something to honour them. Since we are ever grateful for their service, this even will run until Thanksgiving (November 24th)! So be sure to participate!

Give me a Hand! We are all about the gobble gobble!!  You can either decorate a template we give you or you can draw your own hand.  You can make it into a turkey, a wolf, a giraffe, anything! This is all about fun and we would LOVE to see the crazy creations you have in the palm of your hands heh heh heh. This event runs until November 24th!

Share the Love!  With everything going on in the news it seems there is a lot of debate on Wolfhome. Some of us feel divided, some are scared, some people are simply avoiding all of it. We want everyone to know you matter. We want everyone to feel safe and we want everyone to come together like the community we are and share the love. We are asking for people to participate by sending in messages of love and support to Eventful. All these messages will be sent anonymously to each and everyone of you who participates. Participants will be kept anonymous unless you want to be known. This ends November 30th.

The Advent Calendar will kick off on December 1st! Stay tuned!!

20 Days of Thanks! Thanksgiving, true to it’s name, is a time of being thankful for all that you have and all who are in your life. So in the spirit of this, we made an event where you get say what YOU are thankful for!  Ends November 24th

Avatar Swap! Instead of poses this time, you will be drawing an avatar for the user you receive. The only requirements you need to meet are a 200×200 standard avatar size and our set forum avatar file sizes! For more information on what is acceptable as a forum avatar, see here.

★ Notable Wolfhomers ★

In case you haven’t seen, Fik and her band of charitable artists are out to raise money for Toys for Tots ! It is a charity run by the Marine Corps to help less fortunate children and families.They provide books, toys and other gifts to families that don’t have the luxury of a comfortable holiday. Click the link above to learn more and check out Charity Commission Roulette to donate now!

Takatia‘s generous heart doesn’t stop there. She is fundraising for prevention programs, as we remember the beautiful Ayashe and how we lost her. We urge you not to keep your troubles to yourself, but to extend your hands to your friends and family to ask for help and guidance. It’s at this time of the year we need to reach out and be there for one another more than ever. It is a time to celebrate with the ones we love who are still with us, and remember those we loved who may no longer be with us. With the cold also comes seasonal depression. Some of us can cope with better than others, while some of us may fall victim to our own internal struggles. As painful as it may be: remember their names, remember their life, and remember their passions. And use that energy to carry them forward, to ensure that no one ever feels alone.  Remember Ayashe. Just to see their eyes again Fundraiser
