Starfall Faire Raffle 2023

Posted 9 months ago :: Last edited 9 months ago by Starbask

From now until the end of September, we're hosting a raffle for a variety of MYO/Growth/Upgrade and Mutation prizes.

Please read below for additional info on how to enter and rules. Completing this year’s Annual Starfall Faire Seasonal prompt will not automatically enter you for this raffle. You will need to submit a response to the appropriate google form, so please keep this in mind!

NEW! There will be additional bonded pools for some mutations.

 


Starfall Faire 2023 Raffle Details

Eligibility:

  • To be entered into any raffle pools below, you must have completed a submission for this year's Starfall Faire Seasonal Prompt ([S-3] Annual Starfall Faire).
  • This raffle will be rolled on October 8th, with an exact time pending!

Submission Process:

If your submission is soft-rejected, the mod who did so will explain the requirement you missed and you will need to fix it before re-submitting it. We will not be giving leeway for edits this month relative to the raffle. If your edits are not made and submitted before the 5th of October at 11:59pm PST, you will not be allowed to enter the raffle. The raffle form will close October 6th at 11:59pm PST.

      (Requires your prompt submission to be completed and approved for this year's seasonal Starfall Faire prompt!)
      You must also own an elnin or MYO slot to participate in the mutations part of this raffle as these will not be tokens this time around!

  • 8EC will be awarded to anyone who submits a google form for the raffle but does not win one of the above prizes. Please select “None (I’m just entering for the participation prize!)” if none of the other pools interest you.
    • Moderators will be sitting out of the MYO and Mutation raffle prizes this time but will receive the participation prize if they submit a form and have done the seasonal prompt. We will not be adding any additional pools to this raffle.

Restrictions/Warnings:

  • Prizes will be raffled off to entrants, but each entrant can only win a max of 1 prize. MYOs will be rolled first, and then the respective mutation pools, with bonded pools rolled before standard pools.
    • (For example: If you win an MYO, you will not be eligible for the mutations. If you win a bonded pool, you will not be eligible for any other pools.)
  • If you win a MYO prize (not a mutation or mana flaw trait) we will be following up via modberry note on dA with winners after this raffle is rolled to confirm how the winner wants to use their prize. If a response to the note sent is not given within 1 week (7 days) we will roll a new winner for that prize.
  • These prizes are considered free gifts, so these prizes will have zero added resale value.
  • The prizes themselves can't be traded, gifted, swapped, etc. They will be added to the notes of an elnin/kittom or MYO slot and art must be updated for a prize to be applied to that elnin.
    • Keep in mind you absolutely may not trade this prize at all whether it's for art, under-the-table, etc. If you do not want the prize any longer, please submit a ticket on site and a masterlist moderator will remove it from your account and remove the related cooldown. (Specifics will be announced should this come up.)
    • If you are found attempting to trade a prize from this raffle prior to its application or cooldown being over, you will receive a warning and the prize will be removed from your account. If the prize is discovered to be part of any under-the-table trades after its use, both you and the other party will receive warnings. You can, of course, trade your elnin with the prize applied after art is updated and cooldowns are over, but nothing should be part of a deal made prior to the application of the prize and cooldowns running their course.
    • Any group member found soliciting winners for their prizes will also be warned for doing so. If you win a prize and are approached by another group member to trade your prize, you are welcome to submit a ticket to the moderator team on site and we will handle it. We may take more severe actions than just a warning if a user is found to be persisting to solicit the same user or soliciting other winners. Please be kind to fellow group members. No one wants to be harassed for something they won.
  • Prizes in this group are free gifts. Any profiting or attempting to profit from them by way of trade is frowned upon and grounds for a warning. As users must enter themselves manually into these raffles, we will be taking this to mean you want the prize for yourself. Trading or attempting to trade implies otherwise and will not be tolerated as it is directly taking opportunities away from other community members that participated. Again, if you do not want the prize at a later time (before art is updated), you can always submit a ticket asking the prize be removed from your elnin. At that time, a masterlist moderator will permanently remove the unused prize and any related trade/gift locks and associated cooldown.
  • Winning any of the above prizes will cause the new MYO or existing elnin/kittom to be temporarily unable to be sold/gifted/traded and once art is updated with the prize, a 1 month cooldown will be applied to that elnin.
    • This cooldown starts when the design update art is finished and approved by the moderator team via design updates.
  • Prompt entries must be submitted by September 30th, 11:59pm PST.
  • If your prompt entry has been soft-rejected, the fixed entry must be resubmitted by October 5th, 11:59pm PST at the latest. After your prompt is approved, you may enter the form.
  • Entries that miss either of these deadlines are not eligible for the prizes. No extensions, no exceptions.
  • If you fear you may have somehow entered the raffle form twice by accident (via being signed in through another family member's account or some other means), please submit a ticket! The form will be limited to 1 response per google account, so if we see names appearing twice, we will reach out via modberry prior to October 7th at 11:59pm PST time. If we do not get a prompt response before the time the prizes are raffled on October 8th, then any names found to have entered more than once will be entirely removed, both the initial entry and the duplicate entry.

 

A bit about this raffle:

Prizes for this raffle will be a little more in line with what can be earned elsewhere through group participation this time around. This coincides better with a quieter Starfall Faire in general. This does not mean we won't try to bring some more peculiar or interesting mutations or traits back for future events.

Having raffles set up in specific ways helps us try out different things without anything getting too overwhelming for one event. Usually one event being a little more predictable also allows the team to put a bit more thought into future ones where we might want to mix things up a bit more. There's just a longer break period for thinking through how we can distribute prizes in different ways without raffle forms getting too complicated or split up.

End of July Update!

Posted 10 months ago :: Last edited 10 months ago by Starbask

July flew by and we're almost to August! Here's a quick update to address a few things!

Moderator Applications Reminder

As July comes to a close at the end of this week, the moderator application form window will also be closing on July 31st at 11:59pm! If you're interested in applying to be a moderator for the group, please read the news post about it here! The forms can also be found on that post.

DeviantArt Group Galleries

Historically, certain group galleries were open for anyone to submit to, but due to some abuse of this in the past, we've decided to adjust how we handle submissions to the group's dA gallery moving forward. Very soon, we'll require every submission to the group's dA galleries to be approved by staff before it is shared in the group.

Users are still welcome to submit their art or journals to the respective group galleries on dA. Once submitted, moderators will check regularly to make sure submissions go through if they do not break any group rules. We hope this will help keep things more vetted for community members that are still active in our dA's group spaces!

DeviantArt Masterlist

Soon we'll be putting masterlist entry deviations into storage to finalize our masterlist being fully on the World of Eyre site. We've been wanting to solidly retire all aspects of the dA masterlist for a while now, and we've stopped updating a number of things there as the years have gone on to keep our focus on the masterlist here. The manaseed account will still remain a group moderation account on dA but it will not be checked as regularly as things on site moving forward. The masterlist transfer journal on manaseed will still be active for users who want to transfer a nin but not make a WoE account, we just ask that you link the WoE masterlist entry instead of the one that used to be on dA! Thank you.

Starfall Faire 2023

This Starfall Faire will be a bit quieter than last year, but we're aiming to have it start some time mid to late August and run through September this year. We will not be doing any sales for this event. As fun as it is to have guest artists, we felt timelines this summer would be a bit tight. Rather than rush anything and end up with overwhelmed artists and staff, we're going to aim to do some smaller activities and possibly a raffle to keep things a bit lighter.

In recent years, we've been trying to rotate which events get a little more time and thought sunk into them. This year, Feyhallow will probably be a little later than usual in light of Starfall Faire running a bit later. We hope to give Feyhallow a little extra attention compared to Starfall Faire depending on how planning goes. We're excited to see what fun we can cook up for group members to enjoy!

 

Quick End of June Update!

Posted 11 months ago :: Last edited 11 months ago by Starbask

Covering a few things as the month wraps up here!

Moderator News

Staffing will be a bit lighter this week. Starbask is on vacation, so some of her usual tasks will not be covered until her return late next week. Design approvals may experience some delays just due to the new nature of the subspecies, and not all staff being present to tackle some harder questions should they arise.

As mentioned in the last news post, Moderator Applications are open now! Go check it out if you have interest in possibly being a mod! Sorry for the delays on this front. Things have been a bit busy!

General Reminders for Prompts
The Seasonal Prompt Ends June 30th at 11:59pm PDT time, as does June's monthly prompt!

If you haven't gotten to participating in the seasonal prompt for this quarter of the year, it wraps up at the end of this month. Be sure to take a look and get submissions in if you're inclined!

July's prompt will go live on the 1st of the month as expected, so no delays there!

Patreon Helpdesk

We've redone the patreon helpdesk and shifted it over to the WoE site to hopefully cover some general patreon-related info and FAQs, as well as give a new home to the updated Lifetime Noble Reward Slot form. You can check out the updated page here if you are a patron and curious!

2023 Moderator Applications Open!

Posted 11 months ago :: Last edited 11 months ago by Starbask

Hello Berry Bazaar community members!

We are looking for a few new moderators to join our team. If you have interest in volunteering your time and contributing a bit more to the Berry Bazaar community, please continue reading! If you are not interested at all in this sort of thing, then carry on and just expect to see a few new faces on our moderator team in the future.

Who we're looking for:
  1. Active community members or members who want to play a more active role in the group's normal processes/activities. Events do happen from time to time, but they generally sit second seat to the stuff we would like to have open or happening regularly.

  2. Team players who would be comfortable working with our current moderator team. Communication is important for a lot of what we do, due to the team effort nature of how we problem-solve.

  3. Patience. Those familiar with the group should be aware we are not a super fast-paced group. We try not to overwhelm our community members or moderators. At times on the moderator side it calls for it, but generally we spend a lot of time considering feedback when implementing or modifying existing group systems/activities. It is not a quick process and so we definitely need moderators who can patiently bear with us as we work on setting things in motion.

  4. Individuals that can keep moderator-only/behind-the-scenes information private. Moderators have the perk of knowing inklings of things we are planning or that will happen in the long-term future. We ask this information not be disclosed publicly until it is posted to the group, not even to close friends. A lot of what we work on is liable to change and even if something seems not liable to change, we expect it to not become public knowledge. This is to avoid any unfair advantages to parties that we would account for if they were a moderator or foster false hopes/information if it changes. Moderators should not be pressured to give any behind-the-scenes information to non-moderators. We expect them to not disclose details so it is fair that they are not pressured to do so. We encourage fairness in how we approach moderators being involved in group activities given they have this knowledge (you may have noticed we like random number generators/RNG as it's often the fairest way we can let moderators participate without concerns of favoritism or unfair advantage). This is a courtesy to our fellow group members.

  5. Individuals that have good communication skills and a generally positive attitude. We know everything is not always pomus and kittoms levels of positivity in the group, but there isn't a single moderator role in our group that is not involved in communicating with community members in some way! When possible, we want the group to be a positive space that others can enjoy in their off time, so we try to keep our communications with community members in line with that.

  6. Individuals that can regularly commit to helping with group work monthly and communicate weekly with other mod staff. Moderators must be able to regularly communicate with other moderator staff without prompting to ensure moderator tasks are being completed and areas of the group they are helping in are effectively covered.

 

Position Details

This position/work is purely volunteer. Moderator rewards are occasionally granted, usually in the form of group items/mutations/slots for volunteer work done, but they are not promised or guaranteed. Please keep this in mind when applying that being a Berry Bazaar moderator is not a paid position, and while some rewards may have monetary value added to them, moderator compensation is not what the team works for or expects on a regular basis.

We acknowledge there are perks to being a mod. However, the community and group's welfare should always be the highest priority when acting as a mod, above self interests. It's a lot of fun getting to meet new people and contributing ideas to how the group runs. Generally, this also means moderators will know about group plans in advance and other details that should not be community knowledge until solidified.

While the community is a high priority, please know we also work hard to make sure the moderator team is a safe space. The mental health of our moderators is a priority when we organize and plan how the group runs events among other things. We are 100% respectful if a mod wishes to or needs to step down to take care of themselves. This is volunteer work, so it should be enjoyable. If there are things that come up that would put a potential strain on moderators owing to a long term absence, please notify us in advance. We understand some things aren’t planned and happen suddenly, but communication is key and working together to make sure we all have the necessary support is essential.

At the end of the day, moderators are group members too, and while we contribute a service for the group that goes beyond the average community member, the decisions we make impact everyone, including ourselves. Moderators are also expected to understand that community interactions are relative to the group and often we're speaking on behalf of the group in ways that are transparent across the whole team. This means a lot of the feedback we're receiving and giving is in no way personal, so we're really working through things as a community and internal team.

As stated in a prior news post, compared to the last time we hired, this opening we'll be hiring for more specific positions to build upon our existing internal teams. While most mods currently are capable of wearing multiple hats, we have mods that specialize/focus on certain areas more than others.

We'll be focusing on the following three roles:

  • Design Approvals
    • This role will focus primarily on any and all design approvals that run through our group. This includes art updates, design edits, MYOs, elnin rank-ups, kittom growths, and guest artist design approvals (including adult and kittom designs). \o/
    • We are especially seeking some folks that feel confident with their math skills and the group's pricing resources for EC/SC group currencies! While you're not required to know the ins and outs of design updates within the group, it will help you if you do.

  • Prompt/Quest Approvals
    • This role will focus primarily on art and text-based submissions for prompts and questing claims through our group. If you're passionate about seeing and hearing more about other group members' elnins, and cross-checking guidelines for drawn and written content through the group, then this may be the role for you! ^^
    • While not largely math-based, this role will still require knowledge of prompt and quest requirements, and making sure proper currency grants are awarded! So knowledge of how prompts and questing works is appreciated.

New mods ideally will fall respectively under those existing specialized areas with less bleed across roles as time goes on. Communication between teams and mods will still be required, as our tasks often impact other mods in some way. The group is very interconnected. ^^b

Additional info to keep in mind
  • Application Window: [06/27/23 at 12:00am PST] - [07/31/23 at 11:59pm PST]

  • Follow up: We will be following up early to mid August, after the application window closes or during if we have more questions. If we do not reach out to you this time, please don't be discouraged. We tend to like to grow our team slowly so we have time to work with the moderators we bring on board.

  • Application Edits: You will be able to edit your application at any time during the submission window by clicking on the link above/returning to the form page. Once the window closes, application edits will also be closed, so please be sure you include all information you feel is important before the deadline!

  • Probationary Period: [3-6 months] Getting situated working with a team is a process. There are slow periods and faster periods. Should there be any major problems we see causing strain between current moderators and new moderators, we will let you know if something is not working out. We do not want a toxic volunteer workspace for anyone. Working out any confusion or miscommunications will always be done first, but as a last resort, we're making this probationary period known so it's clear we are paying attention to the comfort of new and old mods alike.

 

Application Forms

If you are interested in applying for a specific role, please fill out the respective application form below. You may apply for different roles by filling out all or some of the forms, but you will only be hired for one position/role within our team. We are using a google forms approach to give us a little more organization and wiggle room with how we handle applications. Thank you. ^^b

 

If you have any questions about this process, feel free to ask them in the #questions channel in our discord, or submit a ticket to the "Community" ticket type on the WoE site. Thank you for your interest and time! We look forward to another fun year working with and for the Berry-Bazaar community. <3

June 2023 Update and Upcoming Sales on dA

Posted 11 months ago :: Last edited 11 months ago by Starbask

Summer is nearly here and we're overdue for a much needed update.

Site Owner Rebrand

This is mostly just for clarity for group members! Manaberry has rebranded as Manaberri across several platforms!

You can now find her as Manaberri on the following sites and platforms:

  • World of Eyre as manaberri (and the alternate account manaberry is also hers)
  • DeviantArt as manaberri (redirected from manaberry)
  • Toyhou.se as manaberri (but she also has the account Manaberry)
  • Discord as manaberri (she does not have the manaberry username on discord)
Questing Updates

New quests have been released for a while now. We rolled these quests out a while back but announcing their complete release was a bit delayed.

I'll reiterate in this post some of the biggest changes we made with this effort:

  1. The Questing Guide has undergone wording revisions. Previously, this page was highly resonance-specific because that was the only quest we've had for a long time. Now it should be a bit less Resonance Quest-specific. All of the same info for the Resonance Quest info is still there, but wording will be adjusted to be more inclusive of other quests.
  2. We now have a Quest Directory page. Previously, our list of available quests was found at the bottom of our Questing Guide page. With the addition of more quests, this section now has its own page.
  3. The Acts Directory page is no longer a resource page on our site. Moving forward, we'll be doing fewer detailed directory pages and keeping those pages more overview-focused to avoid duplicate language between the act entries and other pages. Details for each act are under the details section where the act is submitted. Our Quest Directory will instead make an effort to link to specific groups of acts and categories where possible.
  4. A category for Special Quests has been added. Special Quests involve traits, mutations, or features in the group that typically are only acquirable through special means (e.g. Patreon Sales or Event Raffles) Not all traits/mutations/etc. will have a related Special Quest, but we may be adding more over time. At the moment, this quest category will not contain quests related to elnin subtypes or subtype-specific traits.

Other helpful details to know about quests:

  • These quests are designed specifically to err more similar to how our mutation system works with a few differences, meaning they should not be compared to resonance quests in terms of workload.
  • These quests will be available year round, and they will not require you to spend AP.
  • The number of acts required to do these quests will be comparable to the number of prompts you would typically do to acquire a mutation of the same rarity, with an additional piece required beyond the standard amount.
  • These trait quests will generally reward an additional 1 AP (Any Region) that users can put towards other goals they have for a character.
  • The number of times users can do a certain Special Quest will be limited on an annual basis. This may be adjusted later, but we're considering this first year (2023) a trial period to get a sense of the workload before deciding if we want to change our approach.
    • Please keep in mind, if this were limited by AP, you might only be able to complete less than a handful of quests in a year. This approach allows users to do potentially 6+ different quests annually at a variable pace if they wish, rather than it being dependent on all submissions being complete in a month.
    • We will be counting this based on when quest claims are submitted. So if you submit a quest claim in 2024, it would count towards that year's annual limits, even if your acts were completed or submitted in 2023. There will be no exceptions on this, so please be mindful of when you submit your claims!
  • Quests now exist for the following mutations/mana flaw traits: Cloud Breath, Fire Breath, Hydra Tail, Phantom Step, Oddly-Colored Pomu, Crystallization, Splintered Anima, Veins of Corruption, Gloom Kissed, and Capricious Shadow.
    • More mutations/mana flaw traits may be added at a later time. This is just a solid starting point for us.

All the new quests have been added for now, so users will be able to start working on them. Please give moderators at least a month to review quests submitted to the Special Quest category. This is a fairly large release of quests, and with the quest length, we expect that approvals for these quests may take a bit. While we won't be aiming for these approvals to take a whole month, we don't want these approvals to compete too much with our regular monthly prompt approvals in terms of time commitments. We will be seeking additional mods in this area to support this effort as time goes on, but that process will follow this release and take some time to work through.

General Reminders for Prompts and Trait Questions
The Seasonal Prompt Ends June 30th at 11:59pm PDT time!

If you haven't gotten to participating in the seasonal prompt for this quarter of the year, it wraps up at the end of this month. Be sure to take a look and get submissions in if you're inclined!

Trait and Mutation Questions in Discord

This is a reminder if you have any general trait questions to use the form and post them in the #design_feedback channel, as that's the place they would go. Group members are also able to submit a ticket on site if that method is preferred for asking questions. Thanks so much for your help on this!

Moderator Applications

Hopefully next week we'll be opening up application forms again. This will be done in a separate news post in the coming week and will be open for a while. With a lot of the changes mentioned towards the beginning of this news post, we expect there will be a need for additional moderator staff to help keep approvals and group processes moving. We'll likely close the form in July and follow up at that time.

An Aquatic Raffle

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by Starbask

For the month of May we'll be hosting a raffle for 15 Overwild (Aquatic) Tail Tokens. We're reposting the information here since once the prompt closes people may still need form access and access to the rules/guidelines for these tokens, so we've moved the information over to a news post as well!

As an aside, additional info can be found on the Overwild (Aquatic) tail entry in our encyclopedia for those of you trying to ponder out tail ideas. We know there's still some that have come up that we're still woking through but we'll expand upon the trait entry as we work through questions.

Please read below for additional info on how to enter and rules. Completing May's monthly prompt will not automatically enter you for this raffle, you will need to submit a response to a google form so please keep this in mind!

 


May Raffle Details

Eligibility:

  • To be entered into the Overwild (Aquatic) tail raffle pool, you must have completed a submission for this month's prompt ( [M-065] Watery Wonders).
  • This raffle will be rolled on June 4th, with an exact time pending!

Submission Process:

If your submission is soft-rejected, the mod who did so will explain the requirement you missed and you will need to fix it before re-submitting it. We will not be giving leeway for edits this month relative to the raffle. If your edits are not made and submitted before the 3rd of June, you will not be allowed to enter the raffle. The raffle form will close June 3rd at 11:59pm PST.

  • Complete your prompt piece.
  • Submit your piece to the [M-065] Watery Wonders prompt.
  • Once your entry is approved by a moderator on site, please fill out the form for the raffle you are eligible to join:

Item being Raffled:

  • Overwild (Aquatic) Tail Token x15
    • 5 pools for group members who have never won an Overwild (Aquatic) tail before who meet the entry requirement.
    • 10 pools for any group members who meet the entry requirement, including those who have never won an Overwild (Aquatic) tail before.
    • While we do not do this for every raffle, if a moderator is rolled for any pool, we will add an additional pool to the raffle within that same section. For example, if a moderator who has never won an Overwild (Aquatic) tail style from a past raffle is rolled in the first 5 pools, another additional pool will be added to that section, and so on.

Restrictions/Warnings:

  • Tokens will be raffled off to entrants, but each entrant can only win a max of 1 token. If you win a token, you may not win another.
  • These tokens are considered free gifts, so these tokens will have zero added resale value.
  • These tokens are not MYO slots/characters. If you do not own an elnin, you may choose to hold onto the token until you have an elnin you wish to apply it to.
  • The tokens themselves can't be traded, gifted, swapped, etc. They must be used on an elnin/kittom you own and art must be updated for the token to be removed from your inventory. We will not be adding the tail style to an elnin's notes section. The token must be attached to the design update of the elnin it is being used on with the respective art change.
    • Keep in mind you absolutely may not trade this token at all whether it's for art, under the table, etc. If you do not want the token any longer, please submit a ticket on site and a moderator will remove it from your account to be re-raffled off to the community at a later time. (Specifics will be announced should this come up.)
    • If you are found attempting to trade a token from this raffle, you will receive a warning and the token will be removed from your account. If the token is discovered to be part of any under the table trades after its use, both you and the other party will receive warnings. You can, of course, trade your elnin with the Overwild (Aquatic) tail after, but it should not have been part of a deal made prior to the application of the token.
    • Any group member found soliciting winners for their tokens will also be warned for doing so. If you win a token and are approached by another group member to trade your free gift, you are welcome to submit a ticket to the moderator team on site and we will handle it. We may take more severe actions than just a warning if a user is found to be persistently soliticing the same user or soliciting other winners. Please be kind to fellow group members. No one wants to be harassed for something they won.
  • Free gifts in this group are free gifts. Any profiting or attempting to profit from them by way of trade is frowned upon and grounds for a warning. As users must enter themselves manually into these raffles, we will be taking this to mean you want the token for yourself. Trading or attempting to trade implies otherwise and will not be tolerated, as it is directly taking opportunities away from other community members that participated. Again, if you do not want the token at a later time, you may always give it back to the group via submitting a ticket and allowing the moderator team to re-raffle it off at a later time.
  • Use of this token on an elnin will apply a 1 month cooldown
    • This cooldown starts when the design update art is finished and approved by the moderator team via design updates.
  • Prompt entries must be submitted by 5/31, 11:59pm PST.
  • If your prompt entry has been soft-rejected, the fixed entry must be resubmitted by 6/2, 11:59pm PST at the latest. After your prompt is approved, you may enter the form.
  • Entries that miss either of these deadlines are not eligible for the token prizes. No extensions, no exceptions.
  • If you fear you may have somehow entered the raffle form twice by accident (via being signed in through another family member's account or some other means) please submit a ticket! The form will be limited to 1 response per google account so if we see names appearing twice we will reach out via modberry prior to June 3rd PST time. If we do not get a prompt response before the time the tokens are raffled on June 3rd, then any names found to have entered more than once will be entirely removed, both the initial entry and the duplicate entry.

April 2023 Update

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by Starbask

Happy April everyone! There's a lot of changes that we're hoping to roll out soon in April, as well as a few reminders and clarifications we would like to mention. So let's get to it!

Silvergrace Sanctuary Guideline Update

After some thought, we've decided to adjust the 1 AP (Any Region) earned on elnins that have been traded in with an exotic trait.

Elnin relinquished to the Sanctuary that have one or more exotic mutations will now be granted up to 1 hereditary exotic mutation instead of the 1 AP (Any Region) per exotic mutation they would have originally gotten. Please note that this means even if an elnin traded in has more than 1 exotic mutation, they will only earn 1 hereditary exotic mutation overall. The hereditary exotic mutation applied using this allowance must also have an associated region.

We realized a while back that since MYOs have no place to bank that AP, we could add it to the notes tab on a MYO, but it would be harder to keep track of. So instead, we'll just be setting it up this way to try to lessen moderator overhead and hopefully avoid any mistakes where AP goes missing in the future due to atypical logging methods for that currency. This change will also apply to any elnin that have been traded into the sanctuary prior to this update, meaning if they were initially granted 1 AP (Any Region) in exchange for every exotic mutation they had, this will be swapped to a single hereditary exotic mutation instead.

Questing Updates

New quests are on the horizon! This upcoming week, April 3rd-9th, we'll be moving to slowly roll out adjustments to our questing page, with new quests being added as the week goes on. This may take several days so please be patient with us as we get things added.

We would like to request that everyone save their questions about the new quests for the week following this update/release (starting April 10th) so that we can get all the changes live before turning our attention to questions. This should also give group members time to read and review the new information during that week, with reassurance that by the time the week is over, everything should be fully updated. We know there's a lot that needs to be added in this space, so we just don't want anyone to think updates are fully complete on day 1 if we couldn't add everything that fast. ^^b

I'll highlight some of the biggest changes we plan to make with this effort:

  1. The Questing Guide will be undergoing some wording revisions. Previously, this page was highly resonance-specific because that was the only quest we've had for a long time. Now we'll be aiming to make it a bit less Resonance Quest-specific. All of the same info for the Resonance Quest info will still be there, but wording will be adjusted to be more inclusive of other quests.
  2. We will be creating a Quest Directory page. Previously, our list of available quests was found at the bottom of our Questing Guide page. With the addition of more quests, this section will now have its own page.
  3. The Acts Directory page will no longer be a resource page on our site. We've been thinking about this for a while now, and although it's a good resource for an overview of all the resonance quest acts, we've historically had problems making sure wording revisions for those acts has been maintained both on this page and the specific act prompt listed on site. The information is duplicative, so moving forward, we'll be doing fewer detailed directory pages and keeping those pages more overview focused. Details for each act will be left under the details section where the act is submitted. Our Quest Directory will instead make an effort to link to specific groups of acts and categories where possible.
  4. We will be adding in a category for Special Quests. Special Quests will involve traits, mutations, or features in the group that typically are only acquirable through special means (e.g. Patreon Sales or Event Raffles) Not all traits/mutations/etc. will have a related Special Quest, but we may be adding more over time. At the moment, this quest category will not contain quests related to elnin subtypes or subtype-specific traits.

We want to highlight a few other very important things our group members will need to know about these quests, particularly the quests intended to allow the acquisition of mutations or traits that are not typically available through regular means (e.g. EC/SC or AP):

  • These quests are designed specifically to err more similar to how our mutation system works with a few differences, meaning they should not be compared to resonance quests in terms of workload.
  • These quests will be available year round, and they will not require you to spend AP.
  • The number of acts required to do these quests will be comparable to the number of prompts you would typically do to acquire a mutation of the same rarity, with an additional piece required beyond the standard amount.
  • These trait quests will generally include an additional 1 AP (Any Region) that users can put towards other goals they have for a character.
  • The number of times users can do a certain Special Quest will be limited on an annual basis. This may be adjusted later, but we're considering this first year (2023) a trial period to get a sense of the workload before deciding if we want to change our approach.
    • Please keep in mind, if this were limited by AP, you might only be able to complete less than a handful of quests in a year. This approach allows users to do potentially 6+ different quests annually at a variable pace if they wish, rather than it being dependent on all submissions being complete in a month.
    • We will be counting this based on when quest claims are submitted. So if you submit a quest claim in 2024, it would count towards that year's annual limits, even if your acts were completed or submitted in 2023. There will be no exceptions on this, so please be mindful of when you submit your claims!
  • Quests will exist for the following mutations/mana flaw traits: Cloud Breath, Fire Breath, Hydra Tail, Phantom Step, Oddly-Colored Pomu, Crystallization, Splintered Anima, Veins of Corruption, Gloom Kissed, and Capricious Shadow.
    • More mutations/mana flaw traits may be added at a later time. This is just a solid starting point for us.

Once all the new quests have been added, users will be able to start working on them. Please give moderators at least a month to review quests submitted to the Special Quest category. This is a fairly large release of quests, and with the quest length, we expect that approvals for these quests may take a bit. While we won't be aiming for these approvals to take a whole month, we don't want these approvals to compete too much with our regular monthly prompt approvals in terms of time commitments. We will be seeking additional mods in this area to support this effort as time goes on, but that process will follow this release and take some time to work through.

Subtype Trait And Mutation Updates

In preparation for the release of the djinn elnin subtype in the near future, for the first half of April, we are aiming to update trait guidelines for some subtype traits and mutations. We'll be starting with updating some of our current trait and mutation guidelines, and then getting into more specific or new mutations.

So what does this mean? What changes will community members start to see?

  • We'll be adding a "Variable" subtype. This will just be more or less a category rather than an actual subtype. We need a way to group traits that are subtype-related, but can vary depending on their subtype association (things like subtype-specific tails, miniature wings, winglets, etc). This is to lessen some of the redundancy of having different less uniquely-named mutations in existence.

  • With the addition of the variable categorization, searching for some broader subtype-specific mutations on the site will change. If someone needs to search for a mutation that can be variable, they will be able to search by the broader mutation name (like winglets) and see its specific type within the masterlist entry. If someone wants a more precise search result for a type of winglets, they'll need to do it by searching for something like the winglet mutation and with a certain type of subtype elnin selected (ex. If you want to look at winget (fae), you will need to look at the faenin subspecies. These will only be searchable through 1st-generation subtype elnin).

  • Subtype-related tails will be undergoing a name change, and will fall under the variable trait category. There will be some differences between how the tail types show on each subtype, much like their mutation counterparts. These tail types will be relatively consistent, specific, and generally on the simpler side. The most flexible tails in terms of depiction will not be subtype-specific, similar to how Hybrid tails and Overwild (Aquatic) are not considered subtype tails at all, but allow for a broad range of furred and aquatic style tails respectively.

  • Text guideline updates to subtype specific traits. We will announce when the subtype is fully released and all traits are fleshed out and fairly complete. Until that announcement is made, please refrain from asking about subtype-specific mutations without a related subtype MYO or character with a specific trait. We may add text and still be touching up visual guidelines, so we want to give Mana and the team some time to put out what we have as it comes. There's still quite a few examples we want to refine a bit more before sharing those art examples on site, so patience is appreciated!

  • Art guideline updates to subtype specific traits. We expect visuals will take some time, but we're aiming to have some available by the time the subspecies goes live, hopefully to help cover questions users may have about these traits after the announcement has been made.

Once again, thank you everyone for your patience with us as we make these updates. We know there might be some growing pains that come along with these additions, but we'll be keeping an eye on how things go and adjust where possible to try to keep things moving on all possible fronts.

Trading Reminders, Clarifications, and Changes
Relative to Soliciting Elnin

This was mentioned a while back in our group discord, but we wanted to make sure the message was reiterated on the site as well. It has come to our attention that users have been approaching people about buying/swapping their elnin when they've made no inclination that they have any desire to part with them.

This is a reminder that users should not be harassing people about buying/swapping their elnin, or guilt tripping anyone at all. Users found in excess of this harassment may have their incoming trading privileges temporarily suspended.

If someone has been harassing you about trading/swapping your elnin, please send the moderators a ticket with the details so that we can look into it. In the situation where a user has an older elnin and doesn't have a WoE account, you can send us a note to our Berry-Bazaar group on DeviantArt instead.

Transfer Reasons

This is a reminder to please include clear transfer reasons when you transfer an elnin to another user, whether it's a resale, trade, or gift. For gifts, this is also where you would mention if you would like a gifted elnin to keep their resale value, otherwise it will be assumed the gift is not intended to be resold and the resale value will be removed.To clarify, we do not require lengthy explanations, but if it’s not clearly stated whether a transfer is a resale, trade, or gift, then the involved group members become liable for any potential issues that might arise from not documenting the type of transfer.

Transfer Cool-downs

We've seen this come up a few times recently, so we wanted to clarify that if an elnin has an active transfer cool-down, group members should not be offering those characters in trades/swaps or for resale. We cannot help if trades progress faster than cool-downs pass. This is particularly concerning if half of a swap comes through sooner and then the other party backs out or does not follow through with their part of the trade. Be sure to use the trades feature on site whenever possible for swaps and make sure elnin are not being offered while they have cooldowns. Thank you!

Trading MYO slots

This has come up a few times as well, so we wanted to emphasize that we do not condone users offering MYO slots for trade within public group spaces. The reason for this is that should a trade fall through, such as a user deciding not to honor their side of the trade once an MYO slot has been designed and cooldown has ended, there is very little that the moderator team can do. While we cannot stop users who still wish to do this despite the risks, we ask that these offers are not posted within group spaces, and that they understand that if anything should go wrong, the moderator team will not be held liable.

Bundling Designs for Trade

We did a poll back in January relative to elnin being included in bundles with designs. The results of that poll were split just about 50/50 opinion-wise. After some discussion with Mana where we went over a lot of user comments and a few suggestions from some of the moderators, we've decided that the public advertising of bundles will still be allowed within the group. For discord specifically though, we will be asking bundles be advertised in the #ad_board channel as opposed to the #trading_post channel, which is for elnin-only trades or swaps.

In addition to clarifying the location for future bundled designs, we're also requesting more thorough transparency about designs bundled together. Specifically, we are asking users to list the price of any designs bundled together, who the artist of the design is, as well as what platform they are on, and linking a way for group members to verify that pricing is accurate for bundled designs. The linked info can be either a masterlist entry that states a price (if applicable), an original design's sale post where the price was listed, or a receipt of purchase with any personal info obscured. If artists allow pricing to vary beyond a set resale value, please link their TOS and clarify where that is stated.

These are things we honestly would recommend any user include in their resale posts. At this time though, we are requesting it specifically for any bundles because bundling can obscure the prices of each design independent of one another (elnin or otherwise). We just want to be sure the value of any elnin or kittom being bundled is not conflated with the values of other designs that cannot be verified clearly by potential buyers.

Moderator Applications

We'll be opening up application forms again in the near future. This will be done in a separate news post in the coming weeks, but we wanted to give group members some notice in advance. With a lot of the changes mentioned towards the beginning of this news post, we expect there will be a need for additional moderator staff to help keep approvals and group processes moving. Stay tuned for more info on this front!

February 2023 Update

Posted 1 year ago :: Last edited 1 year ago by Starbask

2/4/23 Update: A small note relative to Sanctuary MYOs. Belatedly we realized Sanctuary MYO slots do not have a bank for us to log AP in, so that AP will be logged under the Sanctuary MYO slot's "Notes" tab. We've amended the Sanctuary page to mention this info to try to mitigate some confusion, opposed to removing the option altogether. This is pretty non-standard and will be just what we do for only Sanctuary MYOs. We will not be doing this for any other types of MYOs in the future since it's more tracking than expected.

---

Happy New Year all! Can you believe it's already February?

Modcation has long since ended so let's dive into what's being released this month and what future things we are working on.

Bonded Kittom MYOs

For a long time now, we've wanted to have some group currency based MYO available to the group, but many things have caused this goal to repeatedly get pushed back. So we decided to step back a bit and dedicate time specifically towards the goal of having this opportunity available to group members.

Finally, we're excited to introduce bonded kittom MYOs! These will be special account-bound MYOs that can be purchased by anyone for group currency. Due to the nature of these MYOs, they will be completely non-transferrable and heavily group participation-focused. USD purchases will not be allowed for these special MYOs ever, since that would allow them to acquire a resale value, which in turn would make them transferrable. The decision to keep these MYOs non-transferrable was made with a lot of consideration and will not change now or in the future.

With that in mind, there will be some opportunities specific only to these bonded elnin. Since these account-bound elnin will only ever belong to the same user, the amount of edits that these elnin can undergo will be greater than other designs in the group. We will not be expanding the amount of edits that other elnin can undergo, as this is an opportunity specifically for bonded elnin. We understand there are some traits and mutations that cannot be acquired through normal means outside of patreon. Please be patient with us on this front. Once we know the new systems we're introducing are running smoothly and settled in a bit, we'll be looking to host raffle opportunities for bonded elnin to acquire traits normally only accessible through patreon sales.

Raffles will not be the only way to acquire traits that have previously been patreon-only, but for now this is where we're starting out for these types of MYOs.

See our "Bonded MYOs" page to learn more about bonded kittom MYOs.

The Silvergrace Sanctuary Re-opens

It's been a long time coming on this front as well, but the Silvergrace Sanctuary has officially re-opened with some adjustments.

It's worth noting, the Sanctuary in general has always been intended as a last resort for users who have tried just about everything else and still have not been able to connect with an elnin. We understand that compared to how it was historically run, the Sanctuary's guidelines may seem quite steep, but after much discussion, both Mana and the moderator team are in agreement the Sanctuary has never been intended to be the primary means of acquiring MYO slots in the group. We hope the introduction of the Bonded MYO slot system helps provide a more intentional way for users to acquire MYOs and without needing to have an elnin to relinquish to the Sanctuary in the first place.

Notable changes to the sanctuary include requirements to turn in elnin to the Sanctuary. Users must have accounts that are at least a year old and have completed at least one prompt to relinquish an elnin to the Sanctuary. Other changes include limitations on how many mutations carry over as well as limits on which kinds of mutations carry over. There is also a little more flexibility on which mutations the resulting MYO can pick up. (For example, if you turned in an elnin with featherlight hair in the past system, your new MYO would have access to only the featherlight hair mutation. With the new system, turning in an uncommon mutation like featherlight hair would result in the ability to pick any uncommon mutation that is both hereditary and has an associated region.) This news post will not encompass all the changes made and new guidelines.

If you would like to read more about the Silvergrace Sanctuary you can find more info about it on its respective page.

For those wondering what happens to elnin turned into the sanctuary, we’ve answered that in the FAQ section of the Sanctuary! Once elnin are traded in, the group reserves the right to redesign or disperse the elnin as the group sees fit. Generally, we will prioritize reintroducing elnin back into the community via group participation-based raffles. Some elnin may be redesigned prior to their reintroduction into the group to give them some fresh art or bring traits into alignment with current guidelines.

Next Steps and Goals

We have a few new items we're looking at in the month of February.

  1. Our first goal for February is to dive a little more into questing.
    • Quests we would like to create will not be focused on knights/mages/guilds/etc. That's a larger project that will take a lot longer.
    • We would like to look into making some, not all, historically less accessible mutations available through means beyond just Patreon. Specifics are yet to come.
  2. Our second goal for February is to try to get some of the sub-type trait guides filled out a bit more.
    • This goal is a little less concrete than the first since we're not sure how quickly or completely guides will come together but this is something we want to work on.

We do not have any further details at this time that are ready to be shared, but look out for news posts early next month if either of these projects sound like they interest you! There are several other ideas rolling around in the background as well, but for the sake of making some concrete ground. the two above will be what we're aiming at. Any additional work in terms of broader updates we do this month will just be a bonus on the side.

As always, thank you everyone for your continued patience. The group would not be what it is without your creativity and interest!
