Newsletter Jan 8: Congratulations to our Anniversary Winners

Post by piwakawaka » January 8th, 2018, 5:40 pm

January 2018
Year 4, Issue 2

Hello, readers.

Congratulations to all of our lucky Anniversary winners. It's wonderful to see all the participation on the events. I was lucky enough to have the chance to sort through all of the newsletter competition entries myself; getting to see your feedback and comments over the month has been a great privilege. I'm glad our readers enjoy this newsletter, and it gives a major morale boost, getting a glimpse of the importance our newsletter can hold in bringing information to our readers.

As we shift our focus on to the year ahead and all the excitement it brings, make sure you share your journeys through Azeroth with us. You can share your screenshots and achievements with us through Twitter, using #A3pix and #A3achieve, or via the forums. Full details are in the 'Photo of the Week' and 'Achievements and Milestone' segments of the newsletter, in the community section. Don't forget that we are also happy to share any achievements from your guild, or other Blizzard games you play, as well.

Hope you all have a good week,

Newest Patreon Supporter
The entire purpose of the Azeroth Adoption Agency (A3) community is for members to help one another.
Many members donate their pets, some members donate their time, and some members donate financially to help the agency function. Donations cover the costs of running the A3 network and sometimes even fund special giveaways and prizes.

Recently a new supporter has pledged patronage to A3 through our Patreon account!


Thank you so much to all of our supporters! Without member support A3 would not be the be the great community that it is now.

A3 Anniversary Winners
Congratulalations to all of our winners! Thank you to everyone who took the time to celebrate our 3-Year Anniversary with us! We hope that you had fun!

Important Information
There are more than 840 items being distributed for the anniversary. We ask that all members be patient and be polite. We will not tolerate negative or hostile attitudes. Members found attacking or harassing Wakamaru, Team Members, or any A3 Member will have their wins revoked and receive a warning against their A3 account.

Prize Information Private Messages
Prize information private messages will start being sent on Monday, January 8th. However, since there are so many messages to be sent, they may also be sent on Tuesday, January 9th and Wednesday, January 10th. Please be patient while waiting to receive your message. If you haven't received any claim information by Thursday, January 11th then please politely contact Wakamaru.

READ THE MESSAGES SENT TO YOU. You alone are responsible for following the instructions that they may contain. If you fail to follow the instructions and miss out on a prize, you will not be re-offered that prize. If you are unsure about the instructions in your message, ask someone. You can reply to the message with questions, or post in the #support channel on discord.

Battle Pets
Battle Pets will be mailed to your A3 character. A3 characters are located on Bladefist-Horde-US. There will be no claim instructions for giveaway pets. Game pets will have claim instructions.

Mounts, Toys, Etc.
As explained in the giveaway posts, some prizes will require you to make characters on other realms to claim them. Pay attention to the server, faction, and level details in the claim information for these.

Physical Prizes
Physical prizes will be purchased or shipped between Friday, January 19th and Monday, January 22nd. You have to wait until payday. You'll survive though. :)

Winner List
"My name is spelled wrong in the list below. What do I do?" - Nothing. Names were copied from forms and pasted here. If you spelled your name wrong, we pasted it wrong. This will NOT affect your ability to claim prizes. It is just for this list. We try to catch them all, but that's a lot of names to check!

Prize Claim Deadline
Members entering giveaways and events are expected to be courteous to others also entering. Prize winners will be sent a private message on the A3 forum containing information about claiming their prize(s). Members will have two weeks (14 days) to [1] respond to the PM if a response is requested and [2] claim their prize(s). If after two weeks no response has been received or the prize(s) haven't been claimed in-game the win will be forfeited to another member. A new winner will be drawn for the prize(s).

Inside Azeroth: January 2018
The people of Azeroth have survived to fight another day. While the stench of fel still hangs in the air, the cosmic shifts in the skies above Azeroth suggest things seem to be looking up.

But there’s still much more to be done—and as we ring in the new year, it’s time once again to make a few resolutions. Will you vow to gain more achievements? Take your Mythic Keystone difficulty to new heights? Fish all the fish of Azeroth? Or will you simply vow to be a better citizen of the world, with good will in your heart for everyone (except the opposite faction, of course).

Read the full article here.
World of Warcraft 13th Anniversary Art Contest Winners!

We’re pleased to share with you the grand-prize winner and 10 runners-up of the World of Warcraft 13th Anniversary Art Contest. We hope you like what you see. Make sure to congratulate them all!

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!
  • 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! If you would like to see your WoW-related activities included in a future newsletter you can tag us in your World of Warcraft-related tweets so we can share them with the community! @A3pets.
Reading With Leashes
  • Check out our blog for ideas on pet battles, pet collection tips, and other useful information!
Connecting A3ers through Discord
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!

Snapped a new screenshot/selfie you want to share? Mark it with #A3pix and it will be featured 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!

Thank You
Thank you to everyone to contributed to this week's newsletter!

Piwakawaka (editor/contributor)
Jedikitten (formatting/contributor)
Sandwalker (copy editor/contributor)
Wakamaru (contributor)

A special 'Thank You' to Wakamaru for creating this week's Pawprint Press header!
A3 Forum Games
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.
