Not anymore. It used to be crazy lineart edits but with the artists gaining skill each and every year, there’s many pets where if you haven’t memorized them, there’s no way to tell. Just scroll through any event tab and whatever store tab you want and there will be no difference between them.

Can attest to that notion. I feel store pets used to stand out a lot more to regular pets in the past but eccentric and unique designs are becoming the monthly norm (particularly from 14/15 on-wards). Being on hiatus for a few years, I've came across pets in signatures, trade rules, etc where I've thought it was somebody's custom only to realise it had a rarity tag of unc/common from a monthly release.

Coming across this thread as of today, I'm very intrigued by the idea of separating regular monthly adopts from store-pets whether by a tag or in the archive.
To add to what Elem said about the FTT, it can easily be argued that people mistake re-releases in the same way as a R/VR of the year. It's seen a lot when people give incorrect advice to list-trades on the basis that that pet is ONLY a 2015/16 R/VR when in fact it was released in July 08 not December 2016.

Saying that then, should we have a tag on pets to say that they're a rerelease from XYZ date to prevent similar confusion? I'm aware that's slightly on a tangent but I think part of the store pet issue and argument advocating for recognition of store pet classification then comes down to the accessibility of pet rarities and understanding the archive better in general.
I love my CS family!<3

I think I'll get more creative with my bumps and just start posting pets that look alike or pets that are hard to tell that it's a store pet.

People need to be able to tell the difference between these two horses since one will never be released again, ever. Can we maybe have a simple tag on it?"

[Suggestion] Mark store pets as store pets

Postby Viozel » Sun Dec 02, 2018 4:54 am

    Afsbdjsg I haven't supported this yet??? Wow. Well, huge support!!
    And I agree with shian, it's nearly impossible to tell them apart from regular pets. I thought I knew what all of the store pets look like and I almost had to click to see which on of those pets was a store pet, yikes.

I think store pets should just have a seperate co'or.
-Like rare is orange
-Common is green
-Omgsc is blue...

Maybe store pets should be yellow, pink...
I really don't care about tge colir but that way when you see the color you can be like "oh ya, that's a store pet"

Antwzy, thatns just a suggestion !

I think having a separate color of rarity complicates it more, whereas a tag is pretty simple. ^^

Oh, what I would give to have them tagged like the PPS and BBS pets mostly are.

Hmm....
On one hand the PPS and BBS tags do get in the way of some dressups. Throwing a tag on it could do the same thing in a minor fashion.
From a coding/setup stand point, I'd think making a new rarity would be faster to set up than open your art program and paste the new tag on every single store pet. (especially if you lost the originals of an older one, oops?)

Different rarity tags would help too but I'm honestly 100% for either solution.

Speaking of rarity, do you want to trade? They're both rare. My rare for your rare. It's totally a fair trade and they're both the same lineart :)

Mine's even a little older so it's totally good deal! Ehhh? Ehhhhhhh? Yeah, I'll see myself out thanks XD
