Adoptable Rules and Privileges - a must read
« on: January 09, 2012, 01:55:33 PM »
Adoptable Rules.

1. Newbies. This forum is open membership and you may start requesting at any time. A minimum of posts and membership is no longer required.

2. Adoptable requesters. Read the title of the thread. If it says OPEN - then it's open for requests. If it says CLOSED or ON HOLD (or suchlike) - then please wait. Don't get in line, don't ask. Just wait. General comments and compliments are, however, fine. Thank you!

3. Adoptable requesters. Read the requirements. For example: If it says "Choose a Hasbro pony" - then do not ask for your persona (unless your persona is a Hasbro pony). Another example: if the maker has his or her own rules, and it says "type 'all hail queen of the goof balls' if you read the rules" - then do so. Thank you!

4. Adoptable requesters. Please do not hoard adoptables. Adoptables are not like Pokemon in that you need to "catch them all." Three (3) requests per week is the limit. Chronic adoptable hogs are often banned from the Arena.

5. Adoptable makers. Please state clearly in your thread title whether you are OPEN or CLOSED. You may ask the thread be locked and unlocked if you really need it, but please try to keep it at a minimum. Thank you!

6. Adoptable makers. If you are offering to make adoptables for others using someone else's template or lineart, you must have their permission* and you must credit them in your original post. Stolen lineart will result in the thread being locked. Thank you!

*(Which is automatic if the lineart is in the Arena Artists Coloring Book.)

7. Everyone. Keep in mind the signature rules when you put the adoptables in your signature. All signatures must fit within an area 500 pixels long and 200 pixels high. Total signature "weight" (or file size) must be less than 60k. Sigs without graphics may have up to five lines of text. Sigs with graphics can have up to two lines of text. Tickers count as two lines of text. Thank you!

8. Everyone. Adoptables made at the Arena are for Arena members. Banned members may NOT get around the rules by sending others over here to ask on their behalf. On the other side of the coin, please do not request for adoptables on the behalf of banned members. Doing so would be at the risk of your own adoptable forum privileges.  (rule added on Oct 28, 2010)

Adoptable Privileges.


1. Everyone. We now have an adoptable gallery. A place to store the ones you've collected and/or to store the ones you are making. Go ahead and request one if you'd like, PM SourdoughStomper or Kiwi. Do keep in mind, though, that you have a certain quota of cumulative kilobytes you can use in all galleries. For example: the more adoptables you upload, the less room you have for your collection album. :) Thank you!
Not offered anymore, sorry!

Thank you for reading.  :satisfied:

When it says '3 requests per week' does that mean 3 requests total, or 3 requests as in 1 request to 1 member, and another to another, and the third to another, or does it mean starting three seperate threads requesting ponies? Sorry if this is unclear, I'm a little confused! :blush: Thanks! x

Question. It's stated that if we use lineart we have to get permission from the artist.
What if there is an adoptable made from official G1 art that has been modified?

I wouldn't have to ask permission though? Something tells me they wouldn't get back to me on that. What with them being a busy company and all xD

I admit that I haven't sought out their permission, either. :lookround: :sheepish:

I think it should be alright though. It's artwork that's almost thirty years old and they even made coloring books.
And we're not making money off them or anything.

We've never had a problem with using Hasbro line art, as there is no profit here.  But that is an excellent question!

I don't believe I saw this in the rules and just wanna ask to make sure. Am I allowed to start a thread requesting an adoptable if I give examples and details of what I'd like? I'm new here and would love to have an adoptable in my sig. :) So sorry if this was covered and I missed it.  :blush:

What Stomper said.  But it will count towards your weekly adoptable request limit.  :)

Are we allowed to offer adoptables for sale here?  Or would that go into the Arts and Crafts Corral?
