CAAA Rules

Postby leverage » Sun Dec 31, 2017 4:00 pm

To keep peace and order, the thread must come with some basic guidelines. Please refresh yourself on our rules before posting!

RULES:


1. Do not argue with myself, other moderators, or other members.

2. Do not spam. Include something at least one reply to another member per post; three if you are posting an advertisement.

3. Feel free to ask members character-related questions, and please try to keep the discussion going!

4. You are permitted to share designs for sale and advertise art shops, but please wait 5 pages before quoting or posting a new advertisement, and remember to add three new replies to other members each time you post.

5. If your images are too big or you include more than 15 images in a post, please link them instead.

6. Character and art deals should be dealt with through PM, not on the thread.

7. Always give credit to the artist of any art/designs that you post, even when answering questions.
Do a Google image search or consult the Which artist did this piece? thread for help.

A warning system will be instilled if necessary.

• Answer minor questions that they've been PM'd or asked on the thread (please answer these through PM) in order to give our members a better understanding of our rules, policies, and goals. Major questions should be directed towards Wesley.

• Comment and encourage others' commenting on people's artwork, purchased art, and character designs.

CAAA Mascot

Postby leverage » Sun Dec 31, 2017 4:06 pm

Image

Image

Callia "CAAA" Adopp is the mascot of the Character Adoption Addicts Anonymous! A creature of some unknown species, she embodies the addiction of all of our members! This pupil-less creature is a busy-body with many friends, and she loves collecting characters! Her tail has a power which enables her to seek out the newest characters for sale, and she will go to extreme measures - even paying quantities over $200 - for a new character she likes! She is eccentric and outgoing, and she has many friends! Her friends contribute to her obsession by gifting her characters she didn't know she wanted, but she is grateful all the same! Callia will rarely ever complain, except when going through character withdrawal or experiencing writer's block! Callia is always contradicting herself and never fully sure what she wants, so don't ask her too many confusing questions!

Thank you to our fan-artists!

Any fan art of her can be submitted to the DA group to be featured in the group's gallery!

CAAA FAQ

Postby leverage » Sun Dec 31, 2017 4:09 pm

Image
About Pix -
As previous Head Mod and Wes' personal assistant on many previous threads (definitely one of the main factors this place has been running with few bumps in the road), Solanum created this FAQ section to help you guys out, and to keep you from getting into tussles with the mods. Having made up quite a few of the rules herself, and of course enforcing them, she knows a great deal about them.

If you have any questions, PM me, and if it's common enough, I may put it up here.
If you're looking to see if a question has been answered, try using CTRL+F and the subject of the question to see if it is here already, if not then do ask me.

Special thank you to Solanum for all of her help. c:

Do not quote this post.


Image
How do I join CAAA?

    Image
    To join, you have to fill out the form in the first post and post it on the thread. A mod will come and accept it for you, then you may post. You will also have to PM your form to Sanara, the mod in charge of the members list, to put your name up there.

Image
What if I'm not accepted?

    Image
    If the mods have missed you, it is best to PM your form to one of them, and they will then accept you on the thread. We try not to miss people, but this thread moves fast, so it will sometimes happen.

Image
What can I do here?

    Image
    Character Adoption Addicts Anonymous is a club about characters for those who like characters. Here you can show off your characters and sell designs you've made, or bought off of others (as long as it complies with previous owners' rules). You can show off new art, offer your art services if you're bored, hold Join.Mes and livestreams as well as asking and answering character questions on the thread.

Image
How do I know what is considered spam?

    Image
    Spam is anything not directly linked to the theme of the thread, which would be characters. Art related questions, your daily life and such are not welcome here. One word posts are also considered spam. If you're not sure if something is considered spam, see if any of the active mods are online, and ask them via PM ^^

Image
Why can I not repost more than every 5 pages?

    Image
    CAAA is not a place purely to advertise, and if we didn't have rules set in place the thread would get very cluttered. We would have pages and pages of simply reposted posts, so this is why we don't allow it. Why five pages? Not sure, but the thread moves quickly, so it isn't long to wait usually.

Image
Why do I have to credit when I post images?

    Image
    For starters, it's only polite to credit the artist and designer when you get a new character, or piece of art. It also allows other people, should they like the style, to search out this artist and maybe place an order at an artshop themselves.

Image
What if all I want to do is get art of my characters?

    Image
    There are other places for that. If this is the only thing you want to do, then you are better off elsewhere. You may ask for art here, but you have to have something more relevant in your post.

Image
Why do I have to include a payment when I ask for characters?

    Image
    Asking for free characters could be considered begging, which is not allowed. Therefore you must show that you are willing to pay for characters. It's often helpful to say what you have to pay with as well.

Image
What do I do if my design has been stolen?

    Image
    If on DeviantArt, report the profile and calmly let others know that the design is stolen so they do not buy. If on chickensmoothie, contact a mod (or a General helper, who will refer it to a mod).

Image
Can I join if I only have a few characters?

    Image
    Of course you may ^^ This club is open to anyone who enjoys characters, regardless of number.


Image
Can I join if I don't adopt my characters, but make them instead?

    Image
    Of course c: As stated above, we'll take in anyone who enjoys characters.


Image
What are people talking about when they mean "High-Quality" (HQ)?

    Image
    This is very opinion based, as no one is really sure quite what a HQ character would be. It is generally a good looking design (not a 5 minute rush job) with quality art to match, or a custom ref sheet. But as stated before, it's very opinion based so don't take it too seriously.

Image
A mod just gave me a warning! What does that mean?

    Image
    This means you have broken the thread rules on several occasions. They will tell you what you have done, so you can try not to do it again. You get a few chances, but after that you may be banned. So be careful.

Image
Can I ask for competition art?

    Image
    Yes! As long as you follow the general art requesting rules (posting something on-topic and including payment).

just close your eyes
the sun is going down
you'll be alright
no one can hurt you now

don't you dare look out your window - darling, everything's on fire
the war outside our door keeps raging on
hold onto this lullaby even when the music's gone, gone

just close your eyes, the sun is going down
you'll be alright, no one can hurt you now
come morning light,
you and i will be safe and sound

come morning light
you and i will be safe and sound
