Most Recent Mass Communications (From Oldest to Newest)
Alright everyone! This mass communication is gonna be a tad long so if you're in a rush or super tired, I'd suggest putting it aside for another time ^^;
So first, thank you to everyone that wrote a review for the Curiosees! It was both informative and touching so I very much appreciate your time. I'll summarize the general trend amongst the reviews before moving on to the more specific comments.
First, it seems that everyone would like a higher dominance requirement. While the new dominance suggestion ranged from 300 to 3000, 500 seemed to be the general consensus. Going off that I'll be raising the minimum dominance to 500 today (or tomorrow). I'm not sure how long this will take for each pack so for now, the due date to have above 500 by is Halloween (10/31).
Second, this time based off the poll, people seem to really want more members. We're ranging from 110 to 150, with 150 being the most popular and a few reviews mentioned that they'd like more members as well. I did some math (averages and whatnot) and got 138. Since that's not possible, I'll be increasing the member space by 40 making our total member number 140.
Third, people have pointed out that because we are such a large alliance, while we are very warm and welcoming, it's difficult to get to know each other more closely. Not only so, but people would like to get to know me a bit more. This is the one that I'm having the most trouble coming up with some solutions but here are some I have so far that'll I'll start implementing.
1) Personal PMs : I'll pretty much be PMing every member of the alliance once per month just to check in and have a chat :) I figure this'll be a good way for members to get to know me and for some of the more shy members to have an easier way to talk to me. I realize this is a rather... difficult thing to do with 90+ members but we won't know until we try!
2) Packs of the week : This is a little weird, but hopefully this will help you all make connections with each other and maybe even forge new friendships. Essentially, we'll be having five packs chosen randomly and they'll be the packs of the week. All you have to do is shoot them a comment. Of course, some packs have comments disabled so you can PM them a greeting/compliment or just give them a paw or something. Please do read through their bios/notes beforehand so that you aren't annoying them or something :")
3) Alliance Communication (More details below)
Fourth, more contests! Says everyone so that's what will happen as long as I have the finances available. Hopefully we'll be having more Curiosee theme contests as well as just new contests in general.
Alrighty, now onto the more specific comments! (Told you this would be long)
First, a few people have mentioned that the alliance bio was a bit lengthy. So I'll just be trimming it down by moving the alliance bio to the alliance forum. Simple fix!
Second, a few of you have poked at me saying I need to be more selfish... Uh... I don't know the solution to that one so I'll be putting this one aside...
Third, a good chunk of you want more alliance communications that are more chill. Meaning, a joke or getting to know a member/me, things along those lines. I guess it means more alliance communications from me ^^
If I'm sending information on another pack, you will get a PM from me asking for your permission as well as asking if you have any specific fun facts you'd like to put.
Fourth, I've been told that the AvA contest is too difficult. I'll be tweaking the number of wins to accommodate those comments.
Alright, that's everything! Phew xD
Everything listed here will be implemented within the next few days.
You'll see me again in a few moments for a more chill alliance communication ^^
Happy Hunting, and Good Luck with FMC!
AvA contest has ended and prizes have been sent! ^^
Thanks for everyone for participating
And now we have another contest!
Since we have 140 member spaces, we'll be hosting a recruitment contest! As was the case last time,
1st Place = 300 mush
2nd Place = 200 mush
3rd Place = 100 mush
Participation = 50 mush
NOTE: When the person you've recruited is applying, they must have your name on there or I can't tally how many people you recruited :')
Deadline = Whenever we cap xD
And I forgot to mention last time,
I've created a new google form (anonymous) where you can submit your review on new things in the Curiosees such as my check-ins, dominance raises, new contests etc. Alongside this, the original Curiosee Review Form will continue to be open so if your opinion ever changes or if you wanna fill it out again with a new review, please go right ahead!
That's all for now folks!
Have fun and Stay Curious <3

Icarus: This curious little boy has always been our alliance mascot but I forgot to tell people XD He's the wolf featured in WildSpirit's alliance background story on our Alliance Page. He's been dead for... uh quite a long time, but hopefully I'll be able to gather more art for him :)

Icarus walks alone on the soft grass. His mate is in labor, and the hunting chore is all down to himself. How boring, the wolf thinks, as he disappears into the forest. It's not that he doesn't enjoy hunting; rather, battling causes his blood to boil. But the thing is, his enemies are too weak. Rabbits, squirrels, pheasants... Too fragile. Only one bite is required to take one down. Occasionally he finds deer, but they have no chance against him and his mate. How is he supposed to find excitement in fighting weaklings?
Suddenly his sensitive nose senses something. The smell of prey? Maybe. He has absolutely no idea what the scent belongs to. It is weird, he has never encountered this smell before. What is it? He wonders. Out of curiosity, he tracks the scent, and stops.
Right before his eyes, stands a giant creature that stands on its hind legs. The giant's long fur enveloped its powerful limbs. It turns around, and looks into the Icarus' eyes. 'What have we got here? A little wolf looking for a challenge?' The giant says in a low voice.
Icarus is astonished. Never has he ever seen such an intimidating creature. He charges directly at the creature, aiming for his throat. But the creature reacts quicker than he expects. It raises its giant hands, and sends the wolf into the air. The wolf lands with a great thump, and begins to fall unconscious. Before he passes out, he hears a voice saying, 'I am the Big Foot, the almighty king of the forest. You are still no match for me. Come back when you are stronger.' With that, the creature disappears.
Years have passed. Icarus has grown into a strong alpha male, father of the pack. He is back in the forest, proudly looking down at the creature that once defeated him with one hit, lying on the ground. 'You finally win,' said the creature, 'but it is not over. I have many friends who are stronger than me living in all parts of the world including swamps and jungles. Do you think you can fight against them?'
The swamps sounds interesting. Icarus then vows to find all the mythical creatures and beat them one by one. But his son, Hawk Eye, asks: 'Father, you are old. Are you sure you have much time to explore all the biomes?'
Icarus replies, 'Even though I might not have enough time left, there are still many packs out there with the same passion for exploring and the same curiosity about the world. Remember the alliance we have created? The Curiosees? It is the alliance for wolves who are curious about everything. We work as a whole to explore the world and look for different things. One day some of us will have found all the mythical creatures and defeated them in battles.'
