It is better to be a young June bug than an old bird of paradise

Mark Twain

Gosh darn. I hope this doesn’t become some sort of trend. I’m super sorry about leaving out the month of May everyone, and boy oh boy we are well into June.. this is embarrassing..

First thing’s first, I owe some cool pups some shoutouts for partaking in the Spring Fever Writing Contest! Vice and Anonymous took home the gold with their lovely entries, and we are excited to finally share them with you all!!

when i came to you
alive and free
all you saw
was failure in me
you broke my spirit
as if i wasn’t yours

What is love?
Love is but the utmost relinquish of one’s soul to intertwine with the next.
Love is not finishing each other’s sentences, but rather the ability to absorb each and every sound-wave with complete comprehension that leaves you pleading for more.
Love is a one way road, complete with it’s fragmented flaws and obstructions.
Love is playing Russian roulette with a living organism, your ultimate downfall can lie within the one you trusted most.
Love is the crystalline window into the heart and soul of, not your other half, but the spiritually devoted connection between two equal minds.
Love is being able to love completely ignorant to any embellishments and accepting the second-rate factors underneath as their own beauty.
Most importantly, love can be broken down, but never will any attempts even amount to a fraction of the concept of love.

Wonderful!! Thank you soo much for entering and sharing your interpretations of love ♥

comin’ in like a lion… goin out like a lamb

Boy oh boy!! where have I been?! Sorry guys! I just got out of my mid-winter slumber, and woke up to find out that SPRING HAS SPRUNG!! for more than a week, gee whiz.

We’ve got a lot of catching up to do, so let’s start with March’s MotM, an extraordinary Administrator by the username, Fik. Fik‘s been with us for quite some time and has shown her dedication to our community in more ways than one! Those being, her time spent on the Administration team, even helping out as an Alpha, to being actively engaged with the Event Committee by creating new and exciting events for you to participate in. She’s one heck of a person and you really deserved some recognition for your hard work around here! Congratulations!!

Hocus hosted a Pot of Gold event, much similar to the Advent Calendar, where users were asked a series of questions on a daily basis and received a shamrock! Those shamrocks could be collected and used to pay for prizes at our prize booth. You can read all about it here!

Epilepsy and Aeolia LOST the Wolfhome Mascots, but thank goodness a few people came out strong and found them! What would we ever do without Eventful?!

Announcements

  • Affliction and Kuvi joined the Forum Squad, and because that wasn’t enough, Affliction made it onto ART, alongside Fik, as well!
  • This is old news by now, but our Blackbird now currently goes by Kaliosa, for those who were not aware of the name change!
  • April MotM was April the Giraffe!! She has shown an incredible amount of strength and perserverance within— wait a minute. Is this a joke? What kind of games are the EC trying to play with me here. Not once have I seen a user by that name, I’m onto you guys…
  • a Big welcome to Bedagi, syzygy and Little to the Event Committee! We look forward to seeing what you’ve got in store for us!
  • The Relations Team just keeps getting bigger! Akala will be stepping in for Clovette while she’s on hiatus, and Coyfox has sensed his inner green goblin and is takin’ care of business!

Events!

Anoruk is hosting a Spring Pose Swap! The sign ups have since closed but stop on by the pick up topic to see the sweet results!!

Fik is hosting a writing event until April 24th, so there is still plenty of time to get your lovely entries in for a chance to win some deltas. Get it? lovely?? … You will.

Artemis is hosting a National Health day event, where you draw your character engaging in healthy activity!!It could range from eating an apple or just making it up that flight of stairs. Better hurry up though, it ends tomorrow! (April 7th!)

Takatia is gearing down to host an easter egg hunt!! I’m so excited!! I’m definately going to find them all. Right after I get my gobble on. Stay tuned, it will start April 15th and ONLY run for TWO DAYS!!

Updates

  • Takatia gave an update on the 1st of March (yikes, sorry guys!!) regarding Wolfhome getting a temporary map while the Administration searches for a map artist to commission!! How exciting!
  • There’s a new update for ultimate subscribers! You can enter a full room and make it 16/15! wooo!!
  • This one’s an oldie too, ART has made changes to their guidelines in regards to AFK poses and Copy/Pasted Textures, read the full update here: AFK Poses and Copy/Pasted Textures
  • Takatia clarifies our guidelines on inanimate objects in public rooms: 
    • “After the poll where everyone specified what they did and did not want to see in public rooms, it became clear the one thing people aren’t wanting to see in rooms is inanimate object poses. And with our older rule on AFK poses, it was pretty easy for people to have an inanimate object as a pose in public rooms so long as “AFK” was present. This rule applies for any object that isn’t canine related. A doghouse or bone AFK pose, for example, would still be acceptable in public rooms. But a rock with “AFK” carved into it wouldn’t be acceptable in public rooms. However if you added a tail behind the rock, it would then be usable in public rooms.”  it’s all here!
  • Interested in having your art advertised by the Wolfhome Relations Team? Read up on it here!

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!

Congratulations to Aeolia!
Aeolia is a loving member of the community, admin team, and event committee! She always does her best to make sure that everyone feels welcomed and appreciated! She goes out of her way to help out anyone who is in need and is always volunteering her time to various events. She is a huge sweetheart and we are so thankful that she is part of this wonderful community. You can congratulate her here!

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!
