Easter Egg Hunt

No Gravatar

Since Easter is right around the corner, I have started decorating eggs. Inside each egg will be a horse bundle, or k-9 kennel.

 

On Thursday April 5th I will have a Easter egg hunt event, so watch for notices this week for times and locations, and get ready for the hunt. Lots of awesome eggs to be found

The Mystique coats and Runes eyes are gorgeous with their vibrant and bold colors. We’ve seen many people trying to mix in the chill and warmth for a variation of colors, or blending in the new hues to give them that extra pop of color. Well what if we did what Amaretto is famous for and threw an unexpected twist in there? Well, Guess what? That is exactly what we have done! Starting now…. If you breed two Mystiques of the same color or two Runes eyes of the same color be prepared to see something magical happen. This magical something will be worth breeding for! So get those Mystiques coats and Runes eyes together and start breeding…. Remember… they must be a Mystique coat of the same color or a Runes eye of the same color for a chance to get this mystical prize.

I rarely have the time to go to the web and search for blogs about Amaretto, and today was no different! However, I was sent a link to what may just be one of the best written blogs about Amaretto that Amaretto didn’t actually write!  I guess that is fitting since the blog is on the best of SL website!! Thank you so much to Rusalka Callisto for publishing such an amazing blog about Amaretto Breedables! If anyone out there knows of other well written blogs about Amaretto that I might want to take a look at please feel free to drop me a notecard in-world with the web address.

 

Please go check out the amazing blog that inspired me to write my blog this week J

I know something you don’t know!

It’s me again and for some reason I just can not keep a secret. So want to know a really juicy secret? Well… here it goes…

Starting April 05, 2012 Amaretto is introducing a new Show Horse from April 5th 2012 to May 5th 2012 . We move from Jaymee’s favorite Bays to Jayson’s favorite Mustangs!!
• Starting April 5th 2012 at 12:01 am SLT any bundle dropped from the breeding of 2 Mustangs you have a chance at the bundle being an “Amaretto Mustang Showhorse”!
• That’s it! The only qualification is they both have to be Mustangs, they can be any color but Mother & Father MUST BOTH be Mustangs.
• We will announce what horse is next close to the end of the 30 days of Mustangs!
• Keep your eyes peeled as you won’t know what the “Amaretto Mustang Showhorse” looks like until it hits the grid !
• This “Amaretto Mustang Showhorse” will have a chance of passing its special eye!
• So Amaretto community… gather up your Mustangs and get them ready for an excitement filled month of breeding!

I promise I’ll try and keep all secrets to myself from now on

*crosses her fingers behind her back*

Until next time…..

Amaretto & Charity

No Gravatar

It is with sadness in my heart that I begin to write my Customer Connection blog. It has come to our attention that there are rumors within the community suggesting Amaretto supports charity causes within Second Life for selfish reasons. Nothing could be farther from the truth! With our last event “Auction for a Cure”, as with MOST of our fundraising endeavors all proceeds (all meaning 100%) were paid directly to the Relay for Life kiosk.  The rumors and accusations are unfounded and completely untrue and we here on the Amaretto Team hope that you in the community do not let any such rumors spoil the fact that when it comes to charitable causes the Amaretto Community is downright amazing!

Today I would like to talk to you all about the registration/login process for the website and ticket system. As you may know both sections on the website have a separate registration / login system. Now I would like to cover both processes for you real quick.

 

Main website this is for everything but the ticket system.

 

First point your external browser (a browser other than the built in media browser inside second life) to

http://amarettobreedables.com (you need to use an external browser as the in world browsers do not work all the time)

 

Now at the top of the page click Sign up and it will take you to the account creation/registration page

Fill in your email address set the password you want twice (do not use the same password as your email or second life account) and in the profile address you have to put an alpha-numeric word in the box. You create this and it has to have at least 1 letter in it but can have letters and numbers, i.e. tmzasz1 this is for the url of your website profile page and it would look like this http://amarettobreedables.com/profile/tmzasz1 don’t put the http:// or anything else in just put what you want to be behind the last /.

Next change your time zone and language, complete the recaptcha and then read and agree to the terms of service of the site (which are located here: http://amarettobreedables.com/help/terms).

 

Press continue to go to the profile information page

 

Here you fill in what will appear on your profile page

For first name use your SL first name and for last name use your SL last name or resident if you don’t have one

Everything else on the page is optional and completely up to you if you want to fill it in.

Click save and wait for the confirmation email (should arrive within 5 minutes) and then confirm the registration and login that’s all there is to it :)

 

Now for the ticket system

 

The reason the website login does not work with the ticket system is because the systems use a separate user/password style and they can’t talk to each other.

 

Ok to register to the ticket system point your external browser (a browser other than the built in media browser inside second life) to http://support.amarettobreedables.com (you need to use an external browser as the in world browsers do not work all the time)

 

On this page in the center is a register button that looks like a red silhouette with a brown + sign on it click it to start the registration process.

 

Once you click the register button please fill in the account fields:

Full Name please use your second life name not your RL name

Email please put the email you wish to use to login to the ticket system and put a password (do not use the same password as your email or second life account) and finally fill in the recaptcha and click sign up. Once you do you will be able to login using the login box to the right of the screen about halfway down.

 

Once you login you can fill in the profile information if you choose to but it is not required.

 

After logging in at the top where it says > Home > View tickets > Submit a ticket > Knowledgebase > News > Troubleshooter click on home to go to the front page or Submit a Ticket to go straight to the ticket submit ion page.

 

I hope this helps everyone be able to login easier and clears up any confusion.

 

P.S. Ava has made 2 awesome videos that show the signup process for each part!

Why do you “Relay”?

No Gravatar

TGI Friday! I wanted to make sure that I used my blog time this week to remind everyone that Amaretto is having the Auction for a Cure tomorrow, Saturday March 23 at 3pm SLT! If you weren’t able to get your notecard in to Avalon Crystal by 5pm SLT on March 22, I sure hope you will watch for future events from Amaretto during Relay for Life’s Time for a Cure.  Also be sure to pop over to the auction site, located at the Nest Egg where you can view the horses and K-9s that are up for auction. While preparing to write this blog I got to thinking about all the different reasons that people participate in Relay for Life and I thought I would share with you all why I chose to “Relay”!

I relay because I think RFL in SL is one great idea! No matter where you are, or what your situation may be in real life, via Second Life you can still feel like you make a difference.  There are many people who are not able to go and do the things they once could in the real world but Second Life gives us all the ability to be or do pretty much anything, including making a difference in the fight for a cure.  It is a sad fact that at one time or another most everyone will be touched by cancer at some point in their lives, whether by a friend or family member, acquaintance or even a celebrity you see in movies or TV.  So why do I relay in Second Life?  The question we should be asking is …why doesn’t everyone relay in Second Life?

Auction For a Cure, the time is near!!!
