    To Tess;

    How long are you planning to keep CS running/how long do you hope it will last? 10 years is quite a long time already!

idk if this is the right thread...I posted here once before but now i can't find it.

    Making items fit a lot of different pet linearts is a lot of work, because it means that for every lineart, the item has to be redrawn completely - so just making one item fit ten different species would mean that this item has to be drawn ten times, maybe even more if we include variations like floppy ears or bobtails on dogs, for example.
    There aren't a whole lot of items that fit lions, and since these particular lions are massively edited from the standard lineart, even those items don't tend to fit them.
    It would be a lot of work with little payoff to adjust items to fit one-off lineart edits like these which are highly unlikely to ever be used again. You'd be redrawing an item to fit only 4 specific lions, which is more work than it's considered to be worth.

    Store pets and other special pets do tend to have this problem in general - it's the cost that comes with having such extraordinary edits^^

    The option to delete pets is mostly a remnant from times when we didn't actually have adoption limits.
    Back in the early days of CS we could adopt as many of a pet as we wished, so sometimes people would rather delete them than to try to give them away or just having them sit around.
    Tess isn't so sure if it's still a good option to have, either :'D

    Store pets sometimes start out as rare if they have been bought often enough. Some of the store pets were just so hugely popular and well-liked that a lot of people decided to buy them, and a lot of people bought extra sets to trade away since they anticipated that the litter may be sought after in the future.
    The griffon lions are just one more case like that.
    It has happened several times before already - for example with the dragon cats from 2014 (minus the PPS), the PPS cheetah from 2016, or the raven dog from 2010.
    Store pets aren't guaranteed to start off as very rare, and the more popular they are, the less rare they tend to be, because there are no restrictions on how many of them can be bought.^^

To: CS artists
Have you ever looked at what your litters look like when you invert the colours?
I recently remembered that you can invert the display on a mac by pressing:
"control (⌃) + option (⌥) + command (⌘) + 8". I started looking through the archives and while some pets looked incredible strange, others were so beautiful! for example:

those are neat :D
When I was struggling with color designs I used to sometimes invert my drawings and keep the inverted version if I liked it more than the original. I can't remember if I ever colored any CS pets or items that way, but it's possible. :lol: Also guilty of randomly adjusting the hue/saturation settings and changing whatever I'd just colored from blue to red or something like that. Sometimes my first color choices aren't the best.

Anything is possible :D I used to think 1 year was incredible. I laughed when people asked me if I thought CS would still be around for its 10th birthday.

Look at this post from me in 2010:

"I predict that in 10 years this will all be completely irrelevant cause entertainment and technology will have progressed so far that no-one would ever dream of playing on a website that offers non-interactive 2D pets"
CS was just about to celebrate its 2nd birthday when I said that. And here we all still are... with our non-interactive 2D pets

It's lucky I don't have a day job as a psychic :lol:

After I found out this funky trick i went looking for pets that, well, actually still looked like pets after being inverted and I noticed that your set of grinners are very interesting! The blue grinner inverted looks like the red grinner, whereas the red grinner looks like the blue grinner inverted, same as the purple and green grinners! I find it really neat because its like a hidden design feature (intentional or not).

Oh yeah you're right, the grinners are definitely like this, I remember being surprised not many people noticed it when they were new :)

To any admin I guess: Have you ever received an angry message/email from the parent/guardian of a child you banned for some reason or another?

    To: Mother Tess-resa

    We seek an official answer from the holy admin: are butterfly wolves butterfly-sized, or wolf-sized? Furthermore, if the latter, are the caterpillars and cocoons giant, or are the b-wolves just tiny when they emerge from the cocoon?

    Praise the Tess, the Nick, and the holy Sorren Fey 🙏

    please don't smite me

to anyone:
do you ever get annoyed when you make a pet and then don't get it? so you have to go through the battle that is trading to get the pet you made in the first place?
