MUTATO
mutato - singular | mutatoes - plural

in a rapidly changing world of rapidly accumulating toxic waste, mutatoes take to the sky.
these creatures, affectionately dubbed mutatoes,
are a sad combination of an unknown creature, radioactive material, and a potato.
they live in the sky and consume uv radiation. they are the new era of superman.
Image
mutatoes are typically the size of a potato, but the largest can grow to around the size of a basketball.
generally they are busy creatures who would prefer flying to being carried.
the mutato is filled with the same kind of gases that its tail is made of.
these gases are currently unidentified, but are lighter than air–-enabling them to fly.
they can stay in the air for a maximum of twenty hours straight before they need to land and "rest".
though, when they can't be in the air, mutatoes pace... a lot.

NUMBER RULES
based on the #id of the mutato, its appearance may deviate from the standard look.
this is a guide to the different types of mutatoes and their occurrences.

RULES
◀︎ intro + links⎮ rules ⎮ stafffaqstamps + affiliates | mutato making guide ▶︎

--- mutatoes are a closed species created and owned by akami-chan and managed by allinian.

--GENERAL

    - you may not make your own mutato without permission.

    - please be aware of and understand all of cs' rules.
    - please do not spam, harass other players, whine, guilt trip, or beg for mutatoes.
    - be kind and respectful to all members of the community. discrimination will not be tolerated.

    - there is no limit to how many mutatoes you may own. mutato mayhem!

    - mutatoes may not be co-owned.
    - do not claim a mutato that is not yours. this includes using images that do not belong to you in your signature.

    - do not under any circumstance edit the mutato animation.
    - do not copy/trace/heavily reference the mutato lines.

    - requests for free myos and customs will be ignored (outside of starter 'tatoes).
    - requests to join the staff will be ignored.

    - you must wait for me, allinian, to reserve the second post in each mutato thread before posting.
Image
--CREDITING

    - feel free to feature your mutato in your signature and/or upload it to character sites.
    - if you do either of the above, you must link it back to either the main thread or its original adoption page.
    - if uploading to toyhou.se, assign credit to the main thread (or original adoption page) and the designer.
    - - for image credits, credit akami-chan for the lines/base and the respective artist for the design.
Image
--SELLING / TRADING / GIFTING

    - a user must own their mutato for at least fourteen days before it can be resold, traded, or gifted.

    - a mutato obtained through free adoption cannot be sold under any circumstance.
    - a free mutato can only be traded for other mutatoes. three-way mutato trades are allowed.
    - - if a free mutato is traded for a paid one, the paid one looses its value and becomes free.

    - mutatoes can only be sold for cs pets, items, c$, and/or art.
    - mutatoes cannot and will never be sold for any kind of real currency.
    - - they also cannot be sold/traded for any non-mutato characters or off-site currencies.

    - you may only sell your mutato for how much it was bought for.
    - - art, pets, and items can be converted to c$ to calculate overall value.

    - all ownership changes must be approved by me or a staff member in the archive updates thread.
Image
--STRIKES / BANS

    - deliberate rule abuse will have consequences.
    - rule-breakers will be given one strike per offense. on the third offense, they will be banned.
    - if the staff feel anyone has severely broken the rules, they will be banned immediately.
    - art thieves and plagiarists will automatically be banned with no warning.
    - a situation does not have to be explicitly stated in the rules to result in a strike or ban.

    in the case of a ban,
    -- the user can still keep their mutatoes, but they can no longer participate in anything related to the species. this includes breeding/selling/trading/gifting their mutatoes, participating in events, interacting with any threads/adopts, etc.
    -- if the user no longer wants their mutatoes, they will be readopted. these readoptions can only be held by the staff.
    -
--- i reserve the right to add, remove, or amend rules if necessary.

ARTIST GUIDELINES

    - before making your first mutato, please read through the mutato making guide !

    - somewhere in the first post, include a "DO NOT POST UNTIL ALLINIAN DOES," and wait until i have done so to remove it.
    - if it has been two+ hours, feel free to reserve the post for me and report it to have the author changed.

    - one-in-every-two adopts may be paid. all profit goes to the artist.
    - mutatoes can only be sold for c$, pets, items, and/or art.
    - all auctions/OTAs cannot last for more than one week (7 days), and therefore cannot be extended past said date as well, with the exception of sniping. the 7 days count from when i, allinian, reserve the second post.
    - a snipe guard of one hour can be put into place if necessary.
    - in the case that there are no bids or offers you would like to accept, the mutato can be put back up for free adoption.

    - guest artists (GAs) are hired for a month, and are allowed to make up to five mutatoes.
    - GAs must create at least two designs before creating their custom.

    - include the header + link to the main page on all mutato adopts. here is the code for it:
    Code: Select all

    [color=transparent]---[/color][/quote][/center]
    adopt_info_here

    - please keep the 'open' ribbon visible when the adopt is open, and remove it when the mutato has found a home ! ♡
Image
STAFF COMPENSATION

    ALL STAFF MEMBERS earn a custom/myo upon initial hire, flametail only.

    afterwards, permanent staff earn a custom/myo for every month active, either flametail or bubbletail.

frequently asked questions

Postby allinian » Fri Jan 01, 2021 12:06 pm

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
◀︎ intro + linksrulesstaff ⎮ faq ⎮ stamps + affiliates | mutato making guide ▶︎

    Q. the "select all" url code on the mutato oekaki pages, can anyone use it?
    A.
    no, this is only for the winner's use.

    Q. am i allowed to add accessories to my mutato?
    A.
    yes, on your own separate reference, but do not under any circumstance edit the mutato animation.

    Q. do mutatoes have genders?
    A.
    this is up to the owner. gender is not an important part of this species.

    Q. are mutatoes an intelligent species?
    A.
    mutatoes behave like any pet. they have conscious, deliberate thought, and personality quirks.

    Q. can mutatoes read? do they have their own language?
    A.
    some can read, but mutatoes don't have a special written or spoken language. instead, they mostly communicate through motion and gestures.

    Q. can my mutato be friends with/the pet of my floc?
    A.
    certainly! but.. since both do not have a spoken language.. it might be a bit difficult. the floc can communicate telepathically to the mutato... but it probably wont understand much (similar to human/dog communication).

mutato making guide + useful tips

Postby allinian » Fri Jan 01, 2021 12:07 pm

MUTATO MAKING GUIDE + USEFUL TIPS
◀︎ intro + linksrulesstafffaqstamps + affiliates | mutato making guide ▶︎

    this is a guide + some useful tips to making a mutato !!
    on the oekaki, there is a rough sketch, bounding boxes, and notes you can look at for reference:

    Image

    important notes + tips:
    - there is a 'MUTATO' signature in bottom the right corner. Image
    - never remove it, and make sure it is always visible.

    - as a general tip, make sure the body and tail designs are noticeably different. if they are similar, the mutato can look kind of boring ! D:

    - pay attention to the block off and bounding boxes !! anything outside of them will not be seen on the mutato.

    - the circle on the left is the mutato's eye color.
    - the circle on the right is for mutatoes that have heterochromia (two different colored eyes).
    - - delete or hide this folder if not applicable.

    - all eye colors must be ONE SOLID COLOR (no gradients, patterns, etc).

    - DO NOT USE PURE WHITE OR BLACK in any part of the design.
    - the closest you should get is #fcfcfc and #030303. both these colors are saved on the oekaki color palette/swatches.

    - avoid putting important elements in the center area of the tail. the mutato's body often blocks it off.

    here is a line reference:
    Image
    bubble - static - heaven

    and here is what it looks like on an actual mutato:
    Image

    --

    there are 'open' and 'claimed' ribbons-- please use them when necessary ! ♡
    Image Image
    - the 'open' ribbon is for open adopts. artists, please remove it when the mutato has found a home !
    - the 'claimed' ribbon is under the artist search and used when an entry is claimed. it should be removed upon myo use.

    for starter 'tatoes, there is a small 'starter' ribbon. do not remove it.
    Image

    --

    there are other background options within the 'border + backgrounds' folder !
    feel free to choose what youd like or make your own--just make sure the bottom right 'MUTATO' is always visible.
    Image Image Image Image

    --

    and that's pretty much it ! o:
    if you have any further questions, dont hesitate to pm me or send me a dm on discord @ alli#9595 !

    happy mutato making ! ♡
