★ -- about the species

the chokii are a species of sentient mammals that have evolved over centuries to possess human
levels of intelligence, compassion, and community. while originally they were primarily quadrupedal,
they have much longer hind legs than those in the front, allowing for bipedal movement and function.
their front paws possess complicated phalanges, which are set widely apart and are independently
movable, giving them the ability to grasp items--in fact one toe is opposeable, much like a thumb.
the most noticeable traits of this species are their small, felted horns, their long, velvety ears, heart
shaped noses and tufts of fur on their crown that closely resemble hair.

they vary in size from 4 to 7 feet [approx. 121 to 213 cm] in length from the tip of their nose to the
base of the tail, and weigh between 60 and 180 lbs [approx. 27 to 81.5 kg]. chokii are primarily
omnivores, with a small portion of their diet consisting of meat. they can survive off of a non-meat
diet, as long as they consume appropriate amounts of protein. they are capable of understanding
and speaking complex human languages, but have their own means of communication that is based
heavily on body language.

these creatures share a unique idea of origin, stemming from the belief that all life came from the
roots of a single tree. this sacred object, dubbed "the giving tree" by the chokii species, is said to
give their kind anything they ask for as long as the chokii return its favor with acts of kindness.
furthermore, it is said that once a month an orphan litter of pups is born from this trees roots
[called "fairy batches"] and is offered to the community to adopt and care for.

the chokii have very tightly-knit communities, and are markedly social. they prefer to stay in close
groups of families and friends, and value emotional bonds to a high degree. as such, they will
commonly adopt orphaned pups, and care for those who need it among them without hesitation.
most chokii mate for life, though this is not always the case, and polyamorous couples are not
uncommon. chokii do not have distinguishable sexes, and instead sort gender [or the lack thereof]
by the identity of each individual.

Guidelines, Seeds of Hope, Strikes and Bans

┌──────────────────────────────────────────┐



































★ -- species guidelines

chokii adopts are a closed species. only members of staff may create their own chokii.

selling or trading a chokii adopt for anything but another chokii is not allowed under any circum-
-stances. however, chokii adoptables and myos may be traded for chokii adopt items, myos or
other chokii adoptables.

a user must own a chokii adoptable for at least 10 days before trading them. users may only trade
a chokii once per every 30 days, but may trade items as many times as they like.

users may create chokii designs to sell, or may offer their services to create myos for the
community, but pre-made designs may not exceed one-half of the price of the myo required to
use the design. in addition, all users must accept at least one form of CS payment, such as pets
or C$, when selling their designs or services.

all roleplay and alternate-universe headcanon of choki adopts are accepted, welcome and
encouraged.

chokii adoptables may not be transferred out of species, but may be used as a user's fursona as
long as the artist has given express permission for this to be done.

chokii adopts may not be forcefully removed from their owner[s] or readopted without the owner[s]
consent for any reason. should a user be banned, they will lose the right to participate in the chokii
adoptables community, including the fanclub, trading, breeding, creating chokii art or selling chokii
services, or contributing to the giving tree.

chokii adopts may be co-owned, but if one of the owner[s] is banned, all chokii adopts co-owned
by them will no longer be eligible for breeding or item edits of any kind. they will also no longer
be eligible for trading.

please do not spam or bump chokii adoptables competitions or threads. this includes bumping
unjudged competitions, saying "good luck" after the end date, posting forms after the end date
of a competition, or attempting to guilt users into feeling bad over winning. congratulating
winners is permitted, but only for the first 72 hours after a competition has ended.

please be kind to all users. this community will thrive off of kindness to all users, and it is
expected that you treat others how you would like to be treated. harassment, bullying, and
slander are very different from criticism and critique, and will not be tolerated.

please do not mini-mod chokii threads! unless you are 100% sure you know the answer to a
question, and can quote evidence for your answer, then let the mods handle the question. we
value the help and input from our community, but this way we can keep confusion to a minimum.

★ -- staff guidelines

here in the chokii adopts community, the staff are the ones who turn the cogs that keep us going.
artists, moderators, and archivists alike are all extremely important, and we want to make sure
they always feel appreciated! that said, there are some guidelines that staff, too, need to observe
to keep things fair and functioning:

staff members may not alienate, threaten, or show bias against or for any particular members of
the community. even if you may not like a person, you must not go out of your way to ignore,
dismiss, or outright reject their entries, questions, or attempts for interaction.

staff members reserve the right to create any kind of competition they would like [fcfs, raffles,
prompts, etc.], and are entitled to the right to choose whichever winner they deem fit. unless
there is significant proof of bias, other staff members cannot step in to take over a competition
in progress, and may not attempt to interfere with the competition in any way.

staff members do not hold the right to decide the fates of nursery batches. this right belongs alone
to the owners of the parent chokii. however, should a user or user[s] have trouble deciding fates,
they may ask for help from staff to decide who gets which kit. this must be done in a randomized
and public manner.

staff must stream all rolls for extraordinary or rare traits. likewise, staff must stream all traits rolled
for a planted seed of hope.

staff may take payment for myo services, but payment options must include some kind of CS currency.
additionally, artists may not charge users for planted seeds of hope.

staff members must judge competitions within an orderly period of time after a competition has
closed [within one month]. if staff cannot judge their own competitions, then other staff member[s]
of the artist's choosing will be assigned to judge that competition. while we understand that real life
can often get in the way of things, repeat offenses [more than three competitions within a three-
month period] will spark a review of the artist.

staff compensation depends on how active a staff member is. artist compensation can be found
listed here. nursery artist compensation can be found listed here. all other staff
members [i.e. moderators, archivists, etc.] will receive one common myo per month as long as
they remain active.

staff members are obligated to help community members whenever necessary. if you cannot answer
a question, or do not have time to solve a situation, then please forward the question or concerns to
one of the founders [iceypopCS, Bigby Wolf, Dolly or Midnightkitkat]. if possible, let the user know if
you need time to search for an answer or do not know how to solve their issue.

★ -- seeds of hope

every now and then, an artist may decide that a user or multiple user[s] have created entries to their
competitions worthy of special recognition. when this happens, an artist may award the user or users
with a "seed of hope," a token that denotes an act of excellence. when a user acquires 5 of these "seeds,"
they may "plant" them using the form below. after the seeds are planted, an artist will claim the posted
form and roll for rarity: 2 thru 40 will be standard, 41 thru 70 will be common, 71 thru 90 will be un-
-common, 91 thru 100 will be rare, and 1 will be extraordinary. then, the artist will roll for each trait of
that rarity and below, and a random chokii of that rarity will be created for the user. below, all rarity
percentages are listed:

Code: Select all
[list][b]I would like to plant my seeds![/b]

Username:
[url]First Seed[/url]
[url]Second Seed[/url]
[url]Third Seed[/url]
[url]Fourth Seed[/url]
[url]Fifth Seed[/url]

[b]Thank you for your time![/b][/list]


extraordinary chokii | 1
standard chokii | 2 - 40
common chokii | 41 - 70
uncommon chokii | 71 - 90
rare chokii | 91 - 100

standard traits | 40% chance
common traits | 30% chance
uncommon traits | 20% chance
rare traits | 10% chance
extraordinary traits | 1% chance

★ -- strikes and bans


chokii adoptables staff reserve the right to issue strikes for repeated infractions against community
guidelines. the first strike will not result in any consequences. the second strike will result in a
temporary ban. the third strike will result in a permanent ban from the community. users will not
be banned for their first offense--a user must be given a strike before they can be banned. however,
if the infraction is bad enough, staff members may vote to ban the user on the second strike, with-
-out warning. banned users will have one chance to repeal their ban, and have their situation
revisited by staff. below, all users with strikes and bans are listed:

★ strikes ★
user ID | strike number

★ bans ★
user ID | ban length

FAQ

Postby iceypopCS » Thu Jun 07, 2018 5:25 pm

Image


┌──────────────────────────────────────────┐


























★ -- frequently asked questionsxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

★ are chokii a feral species, or can you use them like other anthro ocs?
chokii are actually bipedal! while they can stand on four legs, and usually use all four limbs to run quickly,
they are sentient and function a lot like today's humans. of course, there was a time in their evolution
where they were feral--it's up to you to decide how exactly your chokii acts. c:

★ how do i win a chokii?
to win a chokii, all you need to do is enter for the desired chokii's competition, following the guidelines
the staff member has provided. so, if it's a raffle, all you'll need to do is fill out the form on the first post,
but if it's a prompt then you'll need to answer the question, too. if you ever have any questions about a
competition, just pm that staff member! they'll be happy to help.

★ can we put items or pets on our chokii's reference?
of course! as long as items or pets are on a separate layer and remain removable, they're definitely
allowed. you don't need staff to approve them, and you can get any community member to do items for
you, or do them yourself if you like.

★ are you hiring?
right now we have a lot of staff, so we're pretty pleased with where we're at. always keep an eye on our
artist search, though--if a position opens, there will be an update there. c:

★ can i make threads of mini-games, rps, or unofficial events for chokii adopts?
of course! you're welcome to do whatever you like in that regard, as long as it follows cs rules. we would
prefer you give us a heads up if you make one, but only so we can participate! we won't bite your head
off.

★ how do i tell if my chokii is a boy or a girl?
chokii have no identifiable gender! all chokii have both biological organs necessary to breed, so there is
no need for gender-specific labels for them. however, they are free to identify as whatever they like, or
to use whatever pronouns they wish. if a chokii had she/her pronouns for one user, but they get traded to
you and now have he/him pronouns, you are 100% welcome to have them identify as a transmale, and so
on and so forth. we don't judge here!

          man. It's all in your head. Maybe I'm paranoid
