Newsletter Mar 19: Really Important Notice!!

Hello A3ers,

This is a firm reminder to all members to please check the DO NOT DONATE (DND) list BEFORE donating pets! While we appreciate your donations, these pets are on the list for a reason. What's the reason? We have too many and are struggling to adopt them out. Sending us most of these pets wastes already limited storage.

This also means that you should not be sending us DND pets with the attitude of "you can delete or sell them". Delete or sell them yourself - we do not want them. The donation tab of the bank is intended to collect pets to help other community members. It is not a pet trash bin.

Lately, we have been getting flooded with pets on the DND list, especially Left Sharks. Even when we specifically request that a person stop sending them, they send more. This is in no way helpful to the community. It does not benefit members and it wastes team members' time. The team works hard juggling A3 responsibilities, work, life, and trying to squeeze some play or relaxation time in between everything. DO NOT be that person.

We understand that a pet may occasionally sneak through, but be mindful of the list and check it.

The DND list has been in the same place on the forum for years, so there is no excuse for not being familiar with it.

Members who continue to flood or spam us with DND pets will receive a strike or multiple strikes. They will also have their adoption and event privileges suspended for a period of time.




The only exception to the DND list rule is if the pet is level 25. In this case, the pet can be used for a level swap or something else. If it is anything less than 25, the DND list rule applies.

Thank you,
Wakamaru

HOP INTO SPRING GIVEAWAY

Adoption Break
!! NOTICE !!


There will be an ADOPTION BREAK the week of March 26th through March 30th! Spring is upon us and it's time for an adoption stock spring cleaning! This is a lengthy process so Wakamaru needs a little time to handle it.

Make sure you are a member of our Discord Server! Wakamaru will be sharing excess stock in QUICK giveaways. These giveaways help us reduce the number of pets that we're too overstocked on and you can use the pets for whatever you want. You can take multiples (when possible), even if you already have one! Giveaways may also include level, quality, and breed swaps. The only rule is that you must have donated pets to the community within the last 30 days.

There will also be a few special giveaways, normal rules will apply to these though.

If you are new to the Discord server be sure that you visit the #discord-roles channel and get the A3 Member role.

Adoptions will resume as usual on April 2nd!

Social Media

Facebook Group
  • Join us on Facebook! The A3 Facebook group is the perfect place to socialize with your fellow A3ers. Post and share anything you like here, WoW-related or otherwise. Please remember to keep it reasonably clean!
Image
Twitter
  • Follow us on Twitter! Twitter is our main social media resource. It is to post info about events, giveaways, and updates. We share and retweet posts from our members as well. We LOVE to see your achievements, new pets, screenshots and selfies!

Connecting A3ers through Discord
Image
A3 is always looking for new and interesting ways to connect with its members. One of our greatest hurdles, though, is connecting members to each other. With everyone playing on different servers, different factions, and the limitations of the friends list – many of you have probably never had a chance to connect. We hope to use the Discord App to help solve that!

The major perk of an app like Discord is that communication is live. Meaning – you can see it on the fly (assuming you are logged in). This will be an advantage over the forum or twitter where you need to check in throughout the day. It will be especially helpful with organizing groups, sharing rare spawn information with others, or just getting to know your fellow A3ers!
Official A3 Hashtags

Did you earn a new achievement or reach a new milestone? Mark it with #A3achieve and it will be included in a future newsletter!

Have you ever said something that would sound hilarious, bizarre, or even insane out of context of pet collecting? Share it with us!

A3 has a number of forum games going for members to participate in. Members are also encouraged to start any new forum games they have ideas for. Head over to our new Games forum and jump in!

Help Support A3
Did you know that A3 has bills? It’s true! A3 has monthly and yearly bills related to the cost of operating the Agency. Operating costs are the costs required to run the community – these do not include the costs of sponsoring giveaways.

A3 is a volunteer operated project and we need the help of our members to keep the site online. Currently, about 4% of our members contribute to the to these operating costs and around 1% have contributed more than once.

A few spare dollars here and there can go a long way! Donations are accepted through PayPal and Patreon.
For more information about donating financially please visit our Supporter's Page.
