    Staff Change
    Bijou has stepped down from their position as Admin. We appreciate all they have done for the site and wish them the best. We don't foresee any major changes for the site itself as a result of this, but for the time being we've temporarily paused the Patreon. Current Patreon's won't be charged for for the near future.

    Voucher Gifting
    SA doesn't normally allow the transfer of vouchers, largely due to balance reasons. However, for just the month of December, we're opening transfers up. Players can transfer their vouchers by clicking the 'voucher' number on the sidebar and choosing transfer.

    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to check with the staff.

    Monthly Events
    Just in time for the holidays, it's begun to snow on Manta Carlos! From midnight on December first and onward, soft snow has begun to come down, and the forecast calls for plenty more as a storm system settles in just above the island.

    For the month of December, the Weather Widget will be inaccurate. It is currently snowing on Manta Carlos.

    We've opened up Secret Santa signups, a yearly event that matches characters up randomly to exchange gifts. Signups close December 7th, 11:59 PM.

    Also, a reminder that the winter break begins on December 11th.

    You can read all about these events in our monthly digest here.

    Monthly Challenges
    We're excited with the high participation numbers for our first two sets of monthly challenges, and we'll be keeping this format for the future. This month's challenges are Posting, Holidays, Mix and Match, Posting Fiend, and Want Ads.

    You can check them all out over here.

    Odds and Ends
    Our Tag Guide has been updated and consolidated. Whether you're a new player or an old one, consider checking it out so that you can fully take advantage of all the useful functionality that tagging brings.​
