OzU is Open for Classes!

Opening this week, OzU had its first classes on Wednesday, February 16. Covering both basic and more advanced Ozimals care skills, the classes are designed to help you get the most out of your Ozimals bunnies and enrich your experience both with your bunnies and the Ozimals community in general. The classes will be taught by a rotating group of volunteer teachers who come from the Ozimals community. According to Nessarose Stormcrow, the coordinator for OzU, the school's motto is, "Learn it. Do it. Teach it!"

OzU classes will be held Wednesdays and Saturdays at 12pm SLT and 6pm SLT on weeks opposite the community meetings. This will allow the Ozimals Team to be available for questions and discussion each week in a group setting.

Will You Be Our Valentine?

Happy Valentine's Day to you and your bunnies from Ozimals!

Special Limited Edition Collectible Holiday Combo Food - All levels including Aphrodisiac (which seems very apropos for the Holiday of Love!) The LE Collectible foods are available in all food levels and in the normal and epic sizes.

PLEASE NOTE: These are special editions of food and will have more prims than the regular foods. Check the vendor textures for prim counts on the different foods before you make your purchases

Archetype Food and the Love Totem are boxes of chocolates with three special options - "Open Lid", "Close Lid", and"Nom!" Try them out! These will be valid Love Totems until Feb. 18th at midnight SLT.

All the food packages include three Energy Valentine Sweets with various percentages depending on food type, one Ozimals Chocolate Box Love Totem, and one Special Edition Tinman Bunny Nest Dye (10 charges) When your bunnies have finished the Valentine's Day Holiday Food, you can keep the item as a collectible! Once the food has been consumed, the hovertext will disappear and the item will be renamed with a "Collectible" Tag. The energy Valentine Sweets will disappear after use and the Tinman Bunny nest dye will disappear after the 10 charges are used.

By popular request, we have also made a pack of non-scripted versions of some of the custom made items for those who would like to use them as decorations or give them as special Valentine gifts! These are for decoration only and will *not* feed or give stat boosts to your bunnies.

These Limited Edition food and accessories will be on sale through Feb. 20th at the Ozimals main store, the Satellite Store in Gypsy, and on the SL Marketplace.

Much Valentine's Love from your Ozimals Team

Welcome to Bunnybury!

Greetings and Welcome to Bunnybury! For those who might be wondering... "What is Bunnybury?" The *name* for Bunnybury comes from the Land of Oz, of course. There, Bunnybury is a town (mentioned in the book The Emerald City of Oz) where bunnies are the only residents. There are marble houses and tidy lawns of green clover and the bunnies dress in lovely outfits and live quite happily.

For Ozimals, Bunnybury is an optional reward program for our loyal customers where we offer coins for bunnies and nests that you choose to send to the Mayor of Bunnybury. This program allows you to accrue coins for exclusive thank you gifts from Ozimals, similar to programs you may participate in with RL companies. We plan to continuously add new items to choose from to the program and we welcome your suggestions and feedback--tell us what you would like to see!

To turn in your bunnies and nests to Bunnybury, simply choose the menu option "Bunnybury" (under "Interaction" in the bunny menu and on the main menu of the nests) and confirm that you would like to send the bunny or nest to Bunnybury and after a few moments you will receive a message in local chat letting you know the transfer was successful and how many coins you added to your account.

You redeem your coins using Bunnybury vendors located in several locations around the grid. All you need to do is go to one of the locations listed below and touch the vendor to log in and begin the process. Complete instructions are in their own notecard below and also available at the vendor locations.

Coins are currently calculated in the following manner: Nests are always worth 1 coin each. Bunnies are worth one coin for every week of age. M/P bunnies are worth 2 coins for every week of age. Any M/P-eligible bunny that has hibernated is no longer eligible for the double Bunnybury coin bonus, and will earn one coin for each week of age, just like any other bunny.

There is a one purchase per week restriction on Bunnybury. You may access the vendor as often as you like but after a purchase you are logged out of the vendor and begin a one week cooldown.

Vendor Locations:
Ozimals Satellite Store
Magic of Oz
Ozimals Orientation
Ozimals Orientation 2
Ozimals Orientation 3
Ozimals Orientation 4

Please obtain a copy of the How to Use the Bunnybury Vendor notecard from one of the many information kiosks at any of the above locations. Reading this notecard before you attempt to use a Bunnybury vendor will help you immensely.

Now for the technical rules and restrictions - boring, but necessary!

1. Please note that as an optional reward program, this program is subject to change at any time and for any reason, though we will give as much notice as possible before changes are made. Discontinuation or temporary suspension is also possible, but unlikely.

2. Coins are non-transferable to any other avatar or alt, so please be sure that you use the avatar with which you wish to redeem the coins when you turn in bunnies or nests. Any manipulation of SL or Ozimals bugs to inaccurately inflate your coin totals can result in your coin totals being adjusted to the proper levels. We hate to have to say it, but be honest!

3. There is always the possibility of mechanical failures etc. which can cause the Bunnybury program to be down from time to time. We do not guarantee 100% uptime of the program, but will do our best to have it available for everyone to use at their convenience.
