Every month there will be a new prompt that members of the community can participate in. 


General Rules:

  • While any member can participate, you must fill out a registration sheet if you would like to earn Koi Koins. 
  • You must have your own Pondpony / Fanwpond to earn Koi Koins.
  • If you co-own a Pondpony / Fawnpond you may still use them in the prompts and earn Koi Koins.
    • A Pondpony can only earn the Koi Koin reward for that month once, regardless of the number of co-owners who participate 
  • Co-owners do not share Koi Koins, Koi Koins are locked onto the Pondpony who earned them.
    • If trading a Pondpony / Fawnpond with Koi Koins you must note the group about a transfer before the trade is complete to keep the Koi Koins, if no note is sent the Koi Koins remain locked to that pond
  • You will not earn Koi Koins for previous prompts if you registration sheet is not filled out.
  • Koi Koins are a group currency, you may use Koi Koins to purchase trait upgrades for your Pondpony or Fawnpond!
  • Each Pondpony / Fawnpond earns there own Koi Koins, you cannot use KKs earned from one Pond to upgrade another Pond
  • If you don't have a Pondpony to use in the prompts but would still like to participate, you may use our mascots, Kaya and Lilytad Splash.
  • You will earn Koi Koins for participating, regardless of skill level!

  • Each registered Pondpony / Fawnpond can earn their own Koi Koins.
    • You can earn more Koi Koins by participating in the prompt more than once with a different character.
    • But remember, each Pondpony / Fawnpond can only earn a reward for that mont once!
  • Having more than one Pondpony or Fawnpond in a picture can earn you 1 Koi Koin for each character, but only when the prompt allows.   
  • Make sure to always link back your registration sheet in your prompt description or you will not earn Koi Koins.

If we do it traditionally do we need to add color?

Would this count as a partial background? I can’t do much with a background when sticking with the Inktober theme

Got a question. If I were to draw a group picture of my ponds in their costumes and tagged all of their registration sheets, is that allowed?

Cherri-Crimzon Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2016  Hobbyist
Yes
But if you do that please provide a separate file for each Ponds outfit in the description, you can just upload it to stash and link it in the description ^^

yes that would be allowed but you'd only receive one koi koin for this prompt ;v;
you do not earn a koin per pond unfortunately this time around!

Is there a limit to how many Koi Koins you can earn from one prompt/entry? For example, if I included 20 pondponies/fawnponds in one big drawing, would I only earn 1 koi koin since only one of the pondponies belong to me, or 20? Or is there a limit to how many you can earn at once?

The other admins and I decided to put a limit on the amount of Pondponies / Fawnpond you can have for this entry
there can now only be a max of 5 Ponds meaning you can earn up to 5 Koi Koins for this prompt

If a pond is traded, what happens to the Koi koins they've earned?
Reply
:iconcherri-crimzon:
Cherri-Crimzon Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2016  Hobbyist
if this happens you need to note the group and let us know, we will see how many Koi koins you've earned with that Pondpony and the allow you to distribute those koins to a different Pondpony / Fawnpond

For the newest prompt if I did a writing piece and included lets say 10 ponds but entered with one specific pondpony that was mine and registered, would I get 10 koi koins for that character?

But for the writing, each character must play an active role / have moderate amount dialog so please keep this in mind when writing 
Basically you can't just say, "Apple was there to help too!" and that count as a character featured in the prompt

Are animations allowed? If so are there any special rules for them?
Reply
:iconcherri-crimzon:
Cherri-Crimzon Featured By Owner Aug 12, 2016  Hobbyist
Yes!
and same rules as those above
I know animations are a little hard so the as long as the lines are semi-clean, simple coloring, and there's a simple background, you are good to go!
