a couple of friends and i no longer wish to keep our jmds as jmds for the community is pretty much dead, would it be alright to transfer them to a different CS or make them into an OC? im not seeing anything regarding this in the rules so i presume it should be fine? :)
We're going through some big things right now, so this may be subject to change in the future, but it is currently against the rules.
Are name changes allowed for JMDs?
Name changes are generally only allowed if the name turns out to be a duplicate and the original owner asks for the second JMD's name to be changed. However, as JMDs had been on a long hiatus, I am giving some leeway to this rule until further notice. I know some users want to completely remake their JMD's personalities, and there are times when the name is included in that plan.
Element, will you be judging the design entries for users to become artist? I think its unfair to leave them there hanging :(
However, we are currently going through applications that I received not long ago! Unfortunately, with a small staff team and varying availability, this is not a quick process. ;v;
Anime inspired JMDs? Please?
Loosely inspired designs are okay, of course, but for example... some of the "villain song" JMDs take colors from the characters that sang their respective songs, but that is not the same as a JMD being made with Scooby Doo's exact design.
Just a small question about the recent decision to hire more staff! Are we allowed to apply for both positions, or only one?
"You may send in applications for both staff positions, but you can only be selected for one."
Will new artists need to be able to use oekaki or can they use offsite drawing programs like sai?
Oekaki cover pages would need to be made for each non-oekaki design, and I'd prefer it if we only had those once in a while. uvu
what kind of staff members are u looking for
Ghost artists will also be considered. uvu
I really like how the Kiamara events have gotchas & the RPWs have tokens. How will a future JMD event be held?
While events like gotcha bubbles would be fun, I do not want artists to be forced to mass-produce JMDs. I have considered creating a currency for JMDs, but I'd prefer to avoid that buying aspect.
Events will most likely have mini activities with different prizes as rewards, and there will also be some item raffles here and there for users who don't have time to participate in activities. Activities will vary depending on the theme of the given event.
When breeding for the chance of twins, will the couple be asked to choose a number from 1-4 & have a random generator choose the number or will it be chosen with a different method?
"- - - - Twins have a 25% chance to occur. Otherwise, the breeding will result in a singular baby."
Twins have a 1/4th chance to occur as of yet, and so, we will roll with a max of 100. If the roll gets 25 or less, the breeding will result in twins. If it gets anything above 25, there will be one baby. Everything will be rolled by the breeder, so unless one of the users has a breeding item that they are using, they will not effect the rolled outcomes.
We could have a winter time event that starts mid-January and extends to Valentine's Day. ;w;
I'll probably do something small for Valentine's Day, but I don't know if it'd really blend well with a winter event. ;o; A winter event could still happen, but I'm just not sure.
Sorry to be a bother, but thank you for answering my questions. C:
Is there going to be a winter holiday event?
Adding to the previous question about duel-toned jewels; would they have a dominant power and a weaker, two weak powers, or just one primary ability?
The only reason a JMD would have unique or enhanced powers would be if it had a special jewel, like my JMD Icarus. He was a 100 adopt on a previous thread, and has enhanced healing powers. He has the brown jewel type, but with multiple colors. If he was a normal JMD adopt, he would only have normal healing powers. However, he has enhanced abilities, being able to revive the dead, which is unique to him and him alone.
Long story short, only special JMDs can have powers that go beyond the default power types or restrictions, and all other JMDs will only have one normal power type.
How will JMD's with multiple jewel colors be regarded?
How does one go about gifting these days?
About nobody having access to the lines, wasn't there was already a artist contest when Milotic owned them using those lines so pretty much they are out for anyone to use right now anyway? I mean, if people were disgusting and wanted to steal them and stuff... @revamp questions
Will JMD customs still be a thing?
What is the best way to contact you personally (regarding JMDs)? ;o;
Oh, when I asked about revamps, I was thinking that users would be doing them themselves >-< Maybe if you let them it wouldn't overload artists?
I know not all users would try to get around the rules or change their JMD(s) too much, but there are some who would disregard the rules or even make fake JMDs if they had access to the complete lineart.
Events are always amazing! You'll be doing a Christmas one, right??
The time frame for the event is coming up soon though, so the event itself is still up in the air, as there are a few factors that must be considered before an event can happen.
I'm glad to see these guys up and running again <3 and the new rules are really refreshing, especially the breeding between any gender! (and a nursery in general, the other versions were never very active) I love it. (do miss the v3 lines, they were so elegant looking)
Aah, those were lovely lines <3 However, I think the larger lineart is also quite nice, and more space allows the artists to do more with the designs! nvn
Will we be getting line transfers/revamps? ;v; The colors on a lot of my older JMDs bug me a bit.
It's so amazing that you're allowing breeding between any dragons of any gender. Thank you so much for changing the breeding rules, it's seriously so awesome.
I really think you should use a breeding concept similar to parrapups! It's really simple. One parent conceives, and one or more can contribute genes to the litter. There will still be only 2 babies, it won't need to increase the litter number!
I can't wait to see everything running again. I have been waiting for a couple to breed for like two years now! And I hope that I will be able to apply for staff too because these adopts mean a lot to me. They were one of the first species that I ever got into on CS. c': Good luck with reviving! <3
Staff slots will open eventually! Not yet, but we will be looking for more staff members in due time. nvn
