Rise | Warriors Adopts | Announcement p280

Postby Dia. » Sat Jan 27, 2018 1:39 pm



    Rise is an adoptable community based on Erin Hunter's Warrior Cats series ...because who doesn't need a ton of warrior cat characters? It is highly focused around world-building and character development in order to encourage users to use their adopted cats rather than just let them collect dust. We strive to be an open-minded, welcoming community where anyone and everyone will feel comfortable and happy.

    Have fun, and may the stars light your path.

    xx• 05.18.19
      Slight rule change:
      • If you are banned from Rise OR Chicken Smoothie, you may keep the characters, BUT:
        » You may NOT keep using the official Rise reference art in any capacity.
        » Your cats will be marked as deceased within Rise.
    xx• 03.10.19
      Please refrain from sending unsolicited offers or messages to Rise members about buying their cats.

      • Please be nice and do not pester Rise staff. Respect all others.
      • Negativity/harassing behaviors will not be tolerated.
      • Art/writing used for Rise must follow CS rules.
      • Give credit to the artist for the design.
      • Rise characters must have realistic designs.
        » "warriors realism"
      • Do not change Rise designs.
        » includes adding scars, accessories, changing fur length, etc.
      • You will not be added to the original images.
      • Rules may be changed as I deem fit.


      You may only have one clan.
        » As of 1/27/19, you may now have a second clan when you reach level 10. See "Step Four"
      • Your clan may only contain your own cats and the cats must be official Rise cats (not OCs).
      • You must maintain a thread/website for your clan.
      • If you do not make a thread for your clan, get to level 1 and post on the archive to confirm this within a month, your cat will be rehomed.
        » This does not apply to COPPA members, as they can't post on the archive thread.
        » applies to all cats after #0010
      • If you are banned from CS, your cats will be rehomed within Rise.
        » applies to all cats after #0010

      • If you are banned from Rise OR Chicken Smoothie, you may keep the characters, BUT:
        » You may NOT keep using the official Rise reference art in any capacity.
        » Your cats will be marked as deceased within Rise.


      • Do not repost founder forms.
        » rule added: 18th February, 2018
      • You may only redeem your free founder once.
        » If you do not claim your founder and it gets rehomed, you may only get another Rise cat through adopts or a paid custom.
        » If you rehome your founder of your own accord, you may only get another Rise cat through adopts or a paid custom.
      • You may order 1 custom maximum per month. Customs reset on the first.


      • Transfers/salesbetween Rise clans are allowed.
        » When transactions are made, both parties must post on the cat’s thread.
        » The original owner must post an amendment on the archive thread.
        » There is a two-month cool down for transfers/sales of cats after the initial adoption and every time there is a new owner
        » Deceased cats cannot be included in transactions.
      4/15/19 wrote:Previously, bred kits have been allowed to be sold, traded, or gifted immediately after being posted.
      Now, bred kits posted as of today may only be gifted immediately after being posted. They may not be traded until the 2 month cooldown is over.

      Previously, we have allowed members to trade, gift, and sell living cats within Rise.
      Now, cats obtained by any means before this date may be sold, traded, or gifted. Cats obtained by any means after this date(4/15) may only be traded or gifted. Accepting payment for a Rise cat will result in an immediate ban.
      To Clarify: The rule comes out today. User 1 wants to sell a cat they got at least 2 months ago. They can, so they sell it to User 2. User 2 can't sell it since they obtained the cat after the rule was made.


      • If you sell Rise characters outside of Rise:
        » You may NOT give away the official reference artwork.
        » You must alert Dia. so that the character can be labeled deceased within Rise.
      • You may use Rise characters outside of Rise, but:
        » You may NOT use the official Rise art outside of Rise.
        » If you want to use the character elsewhere, you must use different art.
      • You may breed Rise characters outside of Rise, but:
        » the offspring will NOT be a part of Rise


      • Cats labeled deceased within Rise may be used as a character outside of Rise.
      • You must submit a form in the archive thread to kill off a cat and have it marked deceased in Rise.
        » Cats will not die or lose lives unless you specifically request it in the archives.
      • Deceased cats do not count towards your cat limit.
        x

      • Additional scars must be earned through a form/ticket process, typically on the archive thread.
      • Deafness/blindness tickets may be earned similar to scars, typically on the archive thread.

    Image ✦✦✦
      • Guest artists may make:
        » 1 custom cat for themselves upon hiring.
        » Adoptables only, NOT customs or founders.


      • Artists may make:
        » 1 custom cat fore themselves upon hiring.
        » 3 custom cats for themselves yearly (every 4 months) provided that they are active.
        » A special birthday custom, provided that they are active and confirm the custom with Dia before posting.
        » Adoptables, paid customs for others and free breedings.


      • Artists are expected to:
        » Be active and produce realistic, quality designs.
          » They will be removed if they are inactive without communicating with Dia.
        » Make all adopts on oekaki canvas.
        » Add scars and such to designs at will.
        » Ask for payment for customs.

          » A decision will be reached in 24 hours.
        » Let Dia. know if you want to make a milestone adopt.


      • Artists should NOT:
        » Ask for payment for breedings.
        » Make extensive lineart edits or rare conditions without Dia.'s permission.
          » Ex: missing limbs, short limbs, hairless cats, male calicos/torties, etc.
        » Promise a RU before a staff decision has been reached.
          Ex: Don't start or close a competition saying there will be a RU.

      Step One: get a founder
        » You can either get your founder through normal adoption processes, or you can get it custom made by one of our artists for free.
        » To redeem your custom founder, please fill out the form below. An artist will claim it and create it for you.
          » You may only redeem your free custom founder once, even if you do not like it, do not claim it, or trade it away.
        » You may request small scars to be added to your founder.
        » Do not request specific breeds or lineart edits.

                  Code: Select all
                  [size=130][u]Founder Form[/u][/size]
                      [b]Username:[/b]
                      [b]Cat's Gender:[/b] optional
                      [b]Cat's Appearance:[/b] optional






      Step Two: creating a thread (Example: Forestclan)
        » Your thread can be set up however is easiest for you.
        » You may use another site such as deviantart, toyhouse, your own website, etc to store your clans as long as the site does not contain content that is not allowed on CS.
          » No personal information, inappropriate language, etc.
        » COPPA members are exempt due to their restrictions.
          » If they'd like to participate in Rise after they have their restrictions lifted they should make a thread and post in the archive ASAP.
        » Please do not store Rise cats in RP Character storage.
      Step Three: leveling up; don't worry, it's easy and fun from here!
        » You start off at Level 0.
        » You are able to level up and grow your clan by completing world building and character development tasks.
        » Post on the archive thread to level up your clan.
          » You do not have to wait for confirmation that you leveled up.
          » However, you will be contacted if your level-up tasks do not fulfill the requirements.
      Step Four: beyond the basics
        » When you reach level 10, you have the opportunity to develop a second clan!
        » You do not get another founder; you can use cats you already have, win an adopt, or order a custom
          » You can transfer your cats between clans, especially if it makes sense story-wise
        » Please maintain the clans on separate threads
        » Your second clan starts at level 0
          » Everything works the same way as for your first clan
          » You cannot reuse things from your first clan to level your second clan

      » If a cat comes to your clan as a kit or an apprentice, you can ask the artist to age them up for you.
        » The artist who made the kit is the only one who can do that for you, since the adult version will be saved in the kit's file.
        » The adult art will be posted as a new drawing underneath the kit drawing so that you can keep both versions.
      » It is completely up to you how long you wait to age your kits up, but there are minimum requirements.
        » You must wait at least two weeks before requesting the adult art.
          » This is updated to simplify the previous rule, which separated time limits for kits vs apprentices.
            » For both, it is now two weeks.
      » Please remember to approach the artist politely about aging up your cats and to be patient.

      » You may trade and gift gift, and sell LIVING Rise cats within Rise.
        » Deceased cats may not be sold/traded/gifted.
      » Both parties [receiving and giving] must be level 1 in order to transfer cats.

      » There is a two-month cooldown for transfers.
        » Ex: If you get a cat on March 21st, it cannot change owners again until May 21st.
        » This also applies to cats won in competitions, founders, or customs.
          » You must own them for two months.
        » This does not apply to kittens obtained through breeding.
          » Kits can be transferred immediately, but then the 2-month cooldown applies to the new owner after the first transfer is complete.


    Image✦✦✦
      » Both parties need to post on the cat's official thread.
      » The former owner needs to post an amendment form in the archive thread alerting staff of the transfer so that the archive can be updated.

      Now, bred kits posted as of today may only be gifted immediately after being posted. They may not be traded until the 2 month cooldown is over.

      Previously, we have allowed members to trade, gift, and sell living cats within Rise.
      Now, cats obtained by any means before this date may be sold, traded, or gifted. Cats obtained by any means after this date(4/15) may only be traded or gifted. Accepting payment for a Rise cat will result in an immediate ban.
      To Clarify: The rule comes out today. User 1 wants to sell a cat they got at least 2 months ago. They can, so they sell it to User 2. User 2 can't sell it since they obtained the cat after the rule was made.

      » You may sell cats within Rise for:
        » Any online currency:
          » CS Pets
          » C$
          » DA Points
          » Other sites that allow it
        » You can also accept art as payment.

        » Real currency

      » Artists may decide to acknowledge other forms that they really liked when they announce the winners of adopts.
      » Keep track of these honorable mentions so you can turn them in for a custom.
        » Honorable mention customs do count towards the monthly custom limit.
        » Please wait until an artist's slots are open, but claim your honorable mentions (and provide proof) instead of offering payment.
        » Keep in mind that they are not obligated to do so and reserve the right to request that you ask another artist.
      » 5 HMs = a semi-custom
        » You pick the base color.
          » Ex: black, red, brown, grey, etc.
      » Artist picks everything else.
        » Ex: tabby, white marks, etc.
      » 10 HMS = a full custom
        » Works just like a normal custom.


    Image ✦✦✦ (Updated)
      » If an artist wants to award a RU, they will discuss it with the rest of staff privately based on the competition and forms completed.
      » Runner ups will be completed by the artist who made the original adopt.
        » They will look similar to, but not the same as, the original adopt.
        » There are no more lower limits or set numbers.
