Introducing The Creator's Mark

February 24, 2022 at 8:00 PM 40 Comments

Creator's Mark

creators-mark.png

We are excited to introduce a brand-new icon to creature profiles: the Creator's Mark. This was also suggested to us by @prairie—similar to the CDWC winner mark! This mark will be applied to creature profiles that are the first of their kind, when the concept art was submitted in the Forums by a user for that particular species.

The Creator's Mark mark has been applied to 249 creatures around Egg Cave.

Applying The Creator's Mark Retroactively

If the creator of that species is in possession of that species, the Creator's Mark has been applied to the lowest ID creature in your Cove automatically.

Pretty straightforward. If you suggested it and you own it, you've been given the mark.

Another Scenario: The Creator Does NOT Own A Species Of Its Kind

If the creator is not in possession of the species that they submitted concept art for, the Creator's Mark has been applied to the lowest ID creature on the entire site, regardless of who its owner is. In this scenario, a person who didn't submit concept art for the creature is now in possession of a Creator's Mark creature.

We understand that this is the less-fair of the two scenarios. Because of this, we are accepting appeals for the Creator's Mark if you're indeed the creator. Please submit a ticket and we'll take a look at your individual case.

Thanks! We hope that you all enjoy the new change and icon. It's a way to make creatures even more special in your collecting—just like the CDWC winner mark.

CDWC Winner Mark

cdwc-winner.png

We are excited to introduce a brand-new icon to creature profiles: the CDWC Winner mark. This was graciously suggested to us by @prairie—thank you! This mark will be applied to all future creatures when the author of the winning CDWC entry receives the first creature of the species kind.

The CDWC Winner mark has been applied to 71 CDWC creatures around Egg Cave.

Applying The CDWC Winner Mark Retroactively

This brings up an obvious question of... how is the CDWC Winner mark being applied retroactively? What if the original author of the winning CDWC description no longer has that creature? What if their account no long exists and was closed? What if the originally-given CDWC creature has now died?

There are a lot of different scenarios and we've chosen two of the most sensible ones. We know that it's not 100% perfect, but none of the scenarios are.

Scenario 1: The CDWC Winner Owns A Species Of Its Kind

If the CDWC winner for that species is in possession of that species, the CDWC Mark has been applied to the lowest ID creature in your Cove automatically.

Pretty straightforward. If you won and have the species, you've received the mark on the creature. It's yours and you deserve it without confusion.

Scenario 2: The CDWC Winner Does NOT Own A Species Of Its Kind

If the CDWC winner is not in possession of the species that they wrote for, the CDWC Mark has been applied to the lowest ID creature on the entire site, regardless of who its owner is. In this scenario, a person who didn't write the winning entry is now in possession of a CDWC Mark creature.

We understand that this is the less-fair of the two scenarios. Because of this, we are accepting appeals for the CDWC Winner mark if you're indeed the author of the winning entry. Just submit a ticket from the account you won from and we'll take a look at your individual case.

We know that, occasionally, we forgot to reward CDWC winners their first creature and expect several appeals here. (You all had to poke us mods to reward the correct creature, which may not have been the lowest ID on the site.) Please file yours and submit a ticket if that's you.

Thanks! We hope that you all enjoy the new change and icon. It's a way to make creatures just a tad more special in your collecting.

New? Here's How It Works

The Chocotravaganza Exchange is our annual February event. Here's how it works.

  • Get Chocolate Boxes from feeding creatures around Egg Cave
  • Head over to the Exchange HQ and send Chocolate Boxes to other players and your friends
  • Using the Chocolate Boxes that you have received from others during the Exchange, get exclusive love- and heart-themed prizes from the Prize Shop
  • Use the Exchange HQ to keep up to date on who has sent you what (so maybe you can return the favor!)

The Exchange will be open to collect Chocolate Boxes February 14-28. You will not be able to spend your chocolates after February 28, so be sure to get your exchanges and prize purchases done before then.
