Symprites is owned by Fenokey and Lark

Mods: HELLBINISM SpaceCereal astralArbitrary Drearypiper
Helpers: Traum Fancyloofa Charrill

All Capricorn-13 characters including Symprites, Aramelles and pet species are CLOSED SPECIES. You cannot make your own as part of this species without stated permission.

 

The following document outlines the Symprites website and Discord Terms of Service. Before using this website or joining the Discord, you must read, understand, and agree to these terms.

 

This TOS extends to all official Symprites sites, communities, and social media which, at the moment, include the Symprites Twitter (@Symprites).

By accessing the site or Discord, viewing any content, or using any services available on the site, you are agreeing to be bound by these terms. Failure to abide by these terms may result in a warning, a ban from the Symprites group, and/or termination of the account on the Symprites website, depending on the severity of the situation. If you do not accept all of the Symprites group’s rules, refrain from interacting with this species and participating in any events.

The base framework of the Symprites website is based on the openly available Lorekeeper ARPG Masterlist. We do not claim ownership of this framework, nor claim creatorship. All other content found on this website, including artwork, writing, etc. belongs to the Symprites group, unless stated otherwise. Credits for any extensions and artwork can be found on the Credits page. 

While these rules extend out of our official site to anyone interacting with the Symprites species, we can’t fully regulate what happens on third-party sites or servers. We advise to not join any unofficial groups, as those are not moderated nor observed by us. However if you find any suspicious activity outside of our server or site, you may contact us and we’ll try our best to resolve these issues but cannot guarantee being able to execute proper action.

These terms are subject to updates and changes, so it is important to check them regularly.

 

MEMBERSHIP AND USER CONDUCT

 

User Behaviour

Users are expected to be kind and respectful to other members and staff regardless of the situation or circumstance. The Symprites community is not a place for venting, ranting, or overt negativity. Please do not bring up any topics that may be harmful or upsetting to others in public.

Participation in our official Discord group is a privilege, not a right. Discord participation is also not required in order to obtain or own any Symprites characters nor to enter most events.

The following conduct violates our guidelines and would be subject to warnings, strikes, or bans, depending on the severity of the situation:
  • Perpetuating pedophilia, zoophilia, racism, nazism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and any other hateful remarks inside or outside of the group. Bigots are not welcome in our community.

  • Being rude to, bullying, or harassing users in the Discord server, or on other social media. If there is a concern with a user that cannot be solved with blocking, please open a ticket to contact a mod. Note: We require proof of instances of breaking TOS, and cannot go off of "good faith" statements. Please provide (to the best of your ability) transcripts, screenshots, or any other relevant information.

  • Name-dropping or publicly gossiping about an individual, even if not present, to stir up drama.
    • Discussing rumours, scandals, or malicious/negative situations involving other species, closed or otherwise, including the community, designs, or owners of those species in the Discord server is prohibited.
    • Additionally, any user found to be posting harassment or these topics to "hate" or "drama" blogs may result in a ban. Both of these instances are malicious and directly go against the rule above of respect towards the community.
  • Guilt-tripping, whining, or complaining about adoptable or artwork prices. Do not beg, guilt, or harass members or staff to try to gain characters, items, currency, or artwork. Symprites characters are an artist-made luxury item, not a necessity.

  • Harassing another user to sell or trade their Symprite character(s) to you when they are not explicitly put up for sale or trade offers. If a character is not listed for sale or trade, please do not contact the owner to ask if you can purchase or trade to obtain them.

  • Creating off-brand Symprite characters or species to sell, or copying an existing Symprites character’s design and selling it as a different species.

  • Scamming another user by attempting to sell or trade a character that does not belong to you, or accepting money but not transferring the design to the buyer.

  • Reselling your Symprite character for more than their official value. If you’d like to appraise your Symprite’s value, please see the Appraisal section, which can be found under the ‘Sales and Trades > Resale’ rules.

  • Creating multiple on-site accounts to obtain on-site currency/items, to participate in sales and raffles, or other means to profit off of the species will result in an immediate permanent ban from the Species. Using a friend's, relative's and or any other account to gain items/currency for your own gain is also counted as a bannable offense.

  • Pretending to be a moderator, admin, or guest artist may result in a ban depending on the severity of the situation.

We have a zero warning policy for incest, pedophilia, and bestiality content involving Symprites and/or any other feral species/art posted on Toyhouse or in any of the NSFW channels.  

When moderators make a decision or announce a new feature, the issue is open for further discussion by opening a ticket or the suggestions channel in moderation. It can be overwhelming and difficult for individual mods to handle when large numbers of people all question a decision at once, and we much prefer concerns to be addressed one-on-one. This allows us to take our time formulating our replies without getting buried in other messages or overrun by an overwhelming response. Please know that we consult with the entire team for all major decisions and think about our members’ happiness first. No decision is pushed forward without heavy discussion beforehand.

While we encourage members to voice their opinions and highly appreciate suggestions, we also have to consider the wellbeing of our moderators and other members. When topics are frequently and excessively discussed, our moderator team might not always be ready to fully divert their attention to the discussion at hand to quickly form a comprehensive and accurate response. Therefore, we might ask members to temporarily drop a topic if we feel like the discussion is getting out of hand, is too much for the available mod(s) to handle, or is overtly nitpicky or inconsiderate. In this case, the moderators will always discuss the topic as soon as possible with the full team and make a public announcement in response. Once a moderator asks for a topic to be dropped and discussed later, it must be dropped immediately without any ‘last words’ added in. Ignoring this will result in a warning.

Suggestions and critiques are welcome, as long as it’s constructive and civil - we will not tolerate hateful or cruel messages directed towards members or the moderator team. If suggestions or criticism devolve into name-calling or bad faith arguments towards the mods, warnings will be given out to all involved.

Moderators are allowed to ban users based on them having prior bad experiences with them, or when users come forward and warn the moderation team. This can include (but is not limited to) prior scamming history, involvement in drama, etc.

Website & Species Content

  • Everything must be kept PG-13 in public spaces, which includes the site. Therefore, on-site content may feature some NSFW imagery, themes, and topics such as gore, body horror, alcohol and drug mentions, and other possibly triggering content. This content will always be properly spoilered and marked with trigger warnings to make users aware of its subject matter.
  • Members and mods may create NSFW content, but this must be properly tagged, spoilered and/or posted in NSFW-designated areas. This includes sexual topics, sexual nudity, gore, heavy drugs and other heavy narcotics, and other possibly triggering content. However, it is strictly forbidden to create sexual content of Symprites in any feral or animal form/having detailed feral genitalia or sexual content including feral characters, and doing so will result in an instant ban.
  • If a user decides to engage with any NSFW content put out by the official group or a member of the group, they are doing so at their own discretion. We will never force anyone to produce, engage in, or discuss any NSFW topics, as these will mainly be included in individual character designs, some lore, and some on-site assets. 

 

Age

  • Members must be at least 16 years to create an on-site account, and 18 years of age to join the species Discord server or to obtain a character of the group species through official sales and giveaways. Users under the age of 16 are asked not to interact with the species at all and will be banned if found to have created an on site account.
  • Members under the age of 18 may not interact with or create NSFW content at all. Any minor found to be doing so will be given an immediate and permanent ban from the species.
  • Swearing is allowed, but keep it moderate.
  • We do not tolerate adults bothering minors or vice versa. Inappropriate or suspicious talks between minors and adults may result in an instant ban from the species for one or both users involved.
  • Members under the age of 18 cannot create, request, or share adult content. Similarly, adults are not allowed to create, request, or share adult content with minors. Both parties may be given a ban in this situation.

 

Account and User Uploads

  • You must have an on-site account (linked to any of your social media - i.e. Toyhouse, Deviantart, Discord, or Twitter) in order to own any Symprites characters.
  • Your account name must be unique and cannot include any vulgar, sexual, suggestive, NSFW, hateful, or otherwise disrespectful words or phrases. The same also applies to your account’s biography and profile image.
  • Links in regular users’ profiles are not verified by the mod team. Clicking on any links not provided by the site or moderators is to be done with caution. However, it is forbidden for users to include any content in their profiles that breaks any of our rules. If you find any suspicious, NSFW, or otherwise rule-breaking links or user profiles, please report these to a moderator directly or through the Report button on the user’s page (triangle next to their username).
  • It is forbidden to make multiple accounts on the Symprites website or Discord for any reason. Making multiple accounts, to earn more in-game currency/items or materials, enter FTO/FFA sales for higher win chances, bypass bans, troll, cheat, etc. will result in a permanent ban without further discussion. To find such "sockpuppet" accounts, we have a system on our site which flags down suspicious accounts. After reviewing these manually, we will contact you to request an explanation.

-> If you find yourself unable to log back into your account, try resetting your password, or contact a moderator as a last resort.

-> In the event of a ban, the banned user cannot create or use another account. Your account and access to your account is non-transferrable and cannot be given away, traded to, or sold to another user or person for any reason.

  • You cannot sell in-game currency/items for real-life money. You may trade art, physical goods, or characters for in-game currency/items though.
  • All art and writing uploaded by you must either be made by you or have accurate and working credit to the artist/writer and needs permission by the artist/writer to be reposted on this site. Said content must follow our ‘Website & Species Content’ rules.
  • The Symprites group is strongly against NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) and will never interact with or condone them. Every instance of the acronym NFT used within our group is the shortened version of "not for trade". This acronym has been used for character trades for years, and we will not change its in-group meaning to stand for Non-Fungible-Token, as we do not associate with them. The staff team and guest artists are against Non-Fungible Tokens.

 

Warnings, Strikes and Bans

All warnings, strikes, bans, and other personal matters will only be discussed privately with the individual involved. We will not give out any personal information to other users or disclose who has how many warnings, strikes, etc. any user has at any point in time.


A Warning will be given out to the user in question for small and/or clearly unintentional rule breaks.

Strikes may also be directly given, without prior warning, for larger and more intentional rule breaks.

If a user receives multiple warnings and/or strikes, they may be temporarily or permanently banned from participating in the Symprites group, depending on the severity of the situation and their previous warnings/strikes.

 

We also reserve the right to instant ban someone without warning in serious situations.

 

There are two types of bans a user can receive:

A temporary ban means that the user is banned from participating in any group-specific games, events, sales, giveaways, and any other group-specific activities for a set period of time. During this time period, the user may trade, gift, or sell their Symprites characters but will need to provide proof of the trade to a moderator. Once the given timeframe has passed, the user may be allowed back into the group unless the moderators receive proof of continued malicious intent and/or non-changed behavior. If this is the case, an extended or permanent ban will be issued.

A permanent ban means that the user will be banned from all group-related social media, the Symprites Discord, and the official Symprites website. The user may no longer participate in any games, events, sales, trades, giveaways, and other group-hosted events. The user will be given a specific timeframe in which they can sell, trade or gift away their in-game items/currency, as well as any Symprites characters logged on the website. After the given timeframe has passed, all characters, items, and currency still on the user’s on-site account will be permanently voided and deleted. This user may no longer receive Symprites or other species from this group. 

Any of the following will result in a permanent ban without discussion with the User:

  • Pedophilia, zoophilia, racism, nazism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, and any other hateful remarks inside or outside of the group.

  • Messaging/Exchanging NSFW content of any kind to/from an adult to/from a minor.

  • Anyone under the age of 18 may not create any Symprite-related explicit NSFW content nor can they share any other explicit NSFW content within the community.

  • Trolling, extended name-dropping, extreme bullying, or extreme lashing out on members or moderators.

  • Creating off-brand Symprites characters or species to sell, or copying an existing Symprites character’s design and selling it as a different species.

  • Scamming another user by attempting to sell or trade a character that does not belong to you, or accepting money but not transferring the design to the buyer.

  • Issuing a refund or chargeback after purchasing an official Symprites character without discussing this with the other user or moderator/GA first.

  • Selling a Symprites character for a much higher value than their masterlist shows/the moderators appraised.

  • Creating multiple on-site accounts to obtain on-site currency/items, to participate in sales and raffles, or other means to profit off of the species.

  • Pretending to be a moderator, admin, or guest artist.
  • Lying about your age in order to gain access to the website or Discord server.

To read more about voided characters, refer to the relevant section, ‘Voiding.’ Users may keep their characters after they have been voided but can no longer call them a Symprite or claim them to be a part of the Symprites group. 

Users that have been permanently banned may be put on a public blacklist to warn and inform others. No personal information will be mentioned but the user's username(s), as well as a summary for the reason of ban. This will only be done if we believe the user is - and will continue to be - a rule-breaker and put others in danger.

 

Art

  • Fenokey retains the right to use any Symprites-related art that she has created for any material; this includes (but is not limited to) site art and promotional posts. 
  • Users are not permitted to trace Fenokey’s or any other GA’s art or claim their art as their own.
  • You can edit existing art done by Fenokey but NOT any of our official or guest artists' work (unless given explicit permission by the respective artist). If you want to change your character's design, you will need to redraw the character yourself or commission another artist and submit a redesign request on our website.
  • Any art posted to our website or in our Discord needs to follow the rules stated in the ‘Website and Species Conduct’ of this TOS. More specific rules may apply to the Discord due to its specific channels.
  • You may not sell merchandise of NPCs/Fenokey's characters/the Symprites brand as a whole, or profit off of Fenokey’s art in any way. This includes creating prints or merchandise of her art, the species, etc. This also includes any art made by any of the official/guest artists. Users may sell merchandise made with their own art, but this needs to be discussed with Fenokey first.
  • NSFW art and writing is allowed to be made of Symprites. NSFW art including sexual topics may also be made of Symprites, as they are intelligent anthropomorphic beings. However, any NSFW art or writing needs to be tagged and/or spoilered accurately when posting and posted within the respective channels. None of this art or writing may be shared from adults to minors or vice versa!
  • Masterlist images must be kept generally SFW and body horror must be kept to a minimum, as characters on the masterlist will not be spoilered/censored.



Character and Ownership Terms

 

Species Specific

  • Symprites are a closed species by Fenokey and Lark, meaning you cannot make your own without a Symprite MYO slot. Aramelles are a closed species by Oko, meaning you cannot make your own without an Aramelle MYO slot. Official Symprites, Aramelles, Jerbs, Houndles, Arkeos, Alligawpers and Byuns can only be made by the species owners, designated guest artists, or by using a MYO slot. These rules pertain to the ownership, resale, and trade of Symprites designs. You may not claim ownership of the species or claim any rights to any art and content made for this group.
  • You may make ‘fan characters’ or characters with similar aesthetics as Symprites, but you may not sell those for a profit or call them ‘off brands’ or official Symprites. Please do not mention the species name nor Fenokey or Lark's name around them.
  • You may not make Symprites with the use of a MYO slot based on real life people or characters that fall under official copyright rules.

 

Ownership

  • When you own a Symprites character, you own the personal and non-commercial rights to that character. The Symprites group retains the commercial rights to the character species, but does not claim any personal or commercial rights to any unique and individual character you may own. We will never claim to own or revoke any characters owned by any user.
  • Commercial use of your Symprite requires specific approval by Fenokey, as well as the original designer of the character.
  • Users only officially own a Symprite species character if the masterlist of said character is under their name. Once a masterlist transfer has been made, approved, and accepted, the character no longer belongs to the previous owner. Only through the on-site transfer of the character's specific masterlist entry can the trade be verified and called legitimate. In order to reduce the possibility of a scam, users are encouraged to only initiate a character transfer after full payment has been made.
  • If a user is experiencing difficulty verifying the legitimacy or worth of a Symprite species character they are purchasing off-site, they may reach out to a site moderator for assistance. 
  • At the moment, every Symprite species character may only have one official owner. Co-owning cannot be officially recognised on the site and is therefore discouraged. We do not and will not take any responsibility for co-ownership disputes nor the terms that co-owners set between themselves. You are completely responsible for keeping up and navigating your own co-ownership contract.
  • You may change your Symprites appearance, character, and design according to our guide and rules in our design/ redesign guide. Things like age, character, height, weight, body build, disability, scars, ethnicity, etc. may be changed at the owner's will.
  • While we host all Symprites characters on our website, we have no direct connection to, or say in, how a user decides to develop their character’s personality and actions. We do not condone any inappropriate character development but cannot and will not interfere with a user’s personal choices unless they directly violate our rules. It is against the Symprites Terms of Service to make characters that perpetuate harmful stereotypes of race, gender, sex, mental health status, lifestyle, etc. Any character that is suspected of doing such should be reported to a moderator immediately with reasonable proof.

 

Design and Redesigns

  • The complete overview of design and redesign rules/guides for Symprites can be found on this Symprites page. The following rules are simply the rules around designs and redesigns.
  • Larger design edits, different traits, and specific patterns or colors may require on-site items (i.e. Potions). When submitting a design/redesign, the item must be applied in the submission to make the design/redesign valid and approvable.
  • Designs can be turned down if they do not closely resemble the Symprite and/or Aramelle species.
  • Once a design or MYO request has been filled out and submitted, it will then be reviewed by an admin or moderator. This can take anywhere from a day to a week depending on staff's availability.
  • Designs may be based on personal characters or 'fan-characters'. However, in the case of a transfer, the new owner MUST be aware of this. There are also restrictions to this allowance:
    • They may not be 1:1 clones of copyrighted characters or be based on other people's designs without their permission. Additionally, they cannot be based on real-life people such as celebrities, vtubers, etc.
    • Furthermore, we do not allow Symprites to be based on morally reprehensible characters. This includes rapists, pedophiles, zoophiles, racists, child abusers, etc.
    • Whenever a Symprite is based on an 'evil' or 'morally reprehensible' character that is allowed, it is mandatory for you to let users know before letting them draw this design. This includes things like posting the character in channels such as #symp-ara-art-requests.

 

Voiding

  • A user may request to completely remove any of their Symprites or pet characters that are on the Symprites site as well as any association to the species. This will result in the masterlist of the character to be completely deleted which includes all of their art, info, and items/traits. This action means ‘voiding’ your characters. After this process has been done, the character can no longer be associated with the Symprites group, nor can it be called a Symprite or the pet species name. This process is permanent and cannot be undone by the current, nor any future owners, of the character. 
  • Any user may decide to void any of their characters without question from the Symprites team or any other members. Refrain from asking any members why they have decided to void their characters, as the reason might be personal or simply none of your business.
  • To void your character, simply open a ticket through Discord and specify which character you’d like to void. You will be requested to agree to this TOS once more before your character will be permanently voided.
  • Symprites without a masterlist entry are not considered an official Symprite and should be reported to staff if the owner clearly pretends like the character is a Symprite.

 

Sales and Trades

The following are general rules for any official Symprite or pet species sales, as well as resales. Extended rules may apply to specific sales or events - and by participating in any official sales, auctions, raffles, character events, or trades - you agree to these terms.

 

General Rules

  • Official sales and creations of Symprites can only be made by Fenokey and, when discussed, by moderators and designated guest artists. 

Please do not ask to be a guest artist or moderator. When applications open, we will make announcements.

  • Do not ask any mods or guest artists when sales go up.
  • Do not ask for specific Symprites in seeking ads unless they are up for trade and/or you have gotten permission from the owner.
  • Do not message a Symprite owner asking if they plan to sell/trade their Symprite, or if they would consider selling/trading to you, unless the Symprite has been listed for trades. This is disrespectful and will result in a warning. 
  • Do not complain or guilt-trip anyone about the value of Symprites. They are not a necessity but a luxury item!
  • Symprite MYO slots are sold on occasion or raffled off in sales or free events as well. These slots are only valid if they have been uploaded to the MYO slot Masterlist with their own masterlist entry.
  • Refunds and chargebacks are not accepted and will not be granted (exceptions for extreme situations may be made if they’re brought forward early enough). In the case of an unresolved chargeback, the character will be voided, you will be banned from the species permanently, and put on a public blacklist to warn others.
  • Designers retain partial rights to their design. This includes all copyrights, rights to the intellectual property, and the rights to distribute, reproduce, and display in their online galleries. Artists will not reuse or resell the design for personal and commercial projects, unless the design has been traded back to them.
  • Artists reserve the right to refuse sale or service to anyone at their own discretion; this includes the sale of adopts or guest artist commissions. (Example: Users with brand-new/unverified accounts or repeat rule-breakers.)
  • As PayPal is our artists' main payment source, selling Symprites characters to anyone under the age of 18 is prohibited, as it is against PayPal TOS.
  • We are not responsible for any unofficial or stolen Symprites characters you may purchase or trade from outside of our official Discord group, social media, or website. It is your responsibility to resolve the situation and get your money back if you are scammed outside of our community. You may report the incident to us, but we cannot guarantee compensation. We only have control over the sales occurring within our community. However, users found to have made these sales will be punished with a temporary to permanent ban.

 

Auction and Custom Rules

  • False bids are not tolerated. Users are prohibited from making bids in an attempt to increase the price without intent to purchase.
  • The currency should not be changed from one bid onto another. Most official Symprites sales are hosted in Euros (€) but may be in another currency depending on the artist.
  • It is forbidden for users to block other bidders to prevent them from making further bids.

 

Resale Rules

  • Symprites or companion species of this group cannot be sold for more than their on-site values.
  • If you’d like to appraise your Symprites character's value, read through the Appraisal part of the TOS below and open a ticket via contact-a-mod on our Discord. There, a moderator will work you through how to appraise your Symprite or Symprites character.
  • Selling a Symprite for higher than their official worth can be a bannable offense.
  • Only ask for an appraisal if you are actually selling/trading/gifting your character.
  •  MYO slots can only be traded or gifted but not resold.

 

Appraising a Symprite Species Character:

  • Symprites and/or pet species of this group may be appraised if they have any added artwork or writing. This counts digital art and  digital writing. If you’d like to add the value of any physical items made of/for the Symprites character, then you will need to also be willing to ship said items to the new owner.
  • You may only appraise your Symprites character if you are planning to sell or trade the character.
  • Symprites personal art pieces are only allowed to be appraised for up to 50 (EUROS) max per piece when the art piece is not shaded nor has a highly detailed background.
  • To get your Symprites character appraised, please open a ticket via the contact-a-mod method in our Discord.
  • Please provide proof of purchases for commissioned pieces, as well as your own commissions sheet/site for any personal work of your Symprites character. You may create a document compiling everything for appraisal if it is more convenient.

 

Personal works: counts for HALF of your commission prices. Please submit proof of your commission prices as reference.

Commissioned works: counts for FULL commission prices. Please include screenshots of DMs or receipts of purchase for proof.

Traded works: counts for YOUR FULL part of the trade, not the other person. Please submit proof of your commission prices as reference.

Multi-character note: If there are two Symprites in one piece, the worth is split in HALF (Example: the commission was $30 featuring two Symprites; each Symprite would be able to add $15 to their worth, not the full amount.) 

Does not count: gifts, pieces used in prompts, pieces bought with Symprites site currencies or other site currencies.

-> NOTE: Make sure to list the currency (Euro, USD, etc.) you paid in for each piece so we can convert it all to Euros for the ML entry! Please also keep in mind that we may update or change these rules if people abuse them by bloating a character's worth just to sell/trade.



TERM MEANINGS  

Symprites, also known as Symps, are bipedal goat-like creatures that live on planet Capricorn-13! More about these creatures can be found here.

MYO (Make Your Own) are slots sold, traded, or gifted to members to make their own character of a certain species. 

Closed Species are an original species defined by the unique nature of the characters' appearances, anatomy, and lore to create the species concept as a whole. Characters within a Closed Species are not free to make, meaning only certain individuals can create official characters of said species. Usually there are MYO slots with which other users can make their own characters of the species.

GA (Guest Artist)  are individuals which were granted special permission to create Symprites characters and accept official rebase commissions. When and how many GAs are chosen is up to the staff team.

NFT (Not For Trade) is a label you may frequently see used on characters' profiles, indicating that they are not currently open for offers.

FTO (First Time Owner) are members which have never before owned a Symprite, Aramelle, or MYO of either. Owning/Having owned Pet species of this Species do not take away a user's FTO status.

Non-Owners are members who have owned a Symprite or Aramelle in the past, but currently do not own any Symprites or Aramelles, nor any MYOs of the two species.

FFA (Free-For-All) is a term used to indicate that a specific sale, trade, or raffle is available for anyone to enter. This includes members who currently own Symprites, as well as FTOs and Non-Owners. 

FCFS (First-Come-First-Served) is a way to quickly sell characters or MYO slots. The person who replies fastest to the given advertisement will be the winner of said sale, giveaway, trade, etc.

Flat Sale Raffle is a sale in which the character or MYO being sold has a predetermined price, such as €50, and the buyer is selected randomly from a raffle. It does not cost any money to enter into the raffle. Only the winner, once rolled from the raffle, will need to pay for the character. Do not enter any flat sale raffles if you cannot pay!

UFS (Up For Sale) indicates that a member is looking to sell their character. They sometimes have a set price tag, or may allow you to offer money with other things on top, such as art or non-species characters. It is important to remember that Symprites characters are NOT allowed to be sold for more than the worth listed on their Masterlist.

UFT (Up For Trade) indicates that a member is looking to trade their Symprite for characters, such as non-species characters or other closed species. They may mention what sort of characters they are looking for in their post, but it is important to otherwise ask for such specifications.  

Swaps (Up For Swaps) indicates that a member is looking to trade their Symprite only for another Symprite. If they are only looking for swaps, please do not try to bribe them with money or non-Symprite characters. 

EO (Entertaining Offers) indicates that a member is accepting offers on their Symprite but may be more uncertain of trading said character, or may be advertising their character(s) out of curiosity to see what offers they get. It is important to remember that it is against the rules to advertise your Symprites characters purely for 'entertainment' purposes. You must actually be considering offers when creating an ad for your Symprites character(s), not to give others false hope.

Vouchers are a form of trade that indicate a person is looking  to trade a character for the purchase of another character.  On rare occasions, in the case of an emergency, Symprites characters may be 'vouchered' for more than their Masterlist entry's listed worth to be sold in order to cover the funds of said emergency. The vouchered worth will NOT update or add to the actual Masterlist worth (Example: A Symprite with a listed Masterlist value of 50 Euros being sold as an emergency 'voucher' for 100 Euros will have their Masterlist value remain listed as 50 Euros and will NOT be updated to the voucher's value). Please open a contact-a-mod ticket within the Discord before taking a voucher for your Symprite. Proof of the emergency will be required, so please keep that in-mind. We do not tolerate this being mistreated.

 

Please respect these terms and only offer what the other party is seeking. Repeatedly ignoring sale or trade requirements will result in a warning, strike, or possibly ban.
