Hey everybody! Flamin' here. After some deliberation, the administrative staff have decided to create a Donation Account in order to help this group go super!

The donation account is AdorAdoptsDonations and will be accepting donations of all sizes in order to upgrade the group! The administrative staff will also be posting exclusive adoptables through that account to raise money for the upgrade, so watch it for a chance to help out!

When we've raised enough points for the Super Group upgrade, we'll continue to use the account to fund Group Contests prizes.

We will also do Weekly Adoptable Features, which you can have a place on if you donate a certain amount (which we aren't sure of yet, but may be 100 :points:, 500 :points:, etc.) and may also be tiered based on how much you donate.

Watch the new account!

Russet here!

Over the last few weeks I've been thinking about our consequence systems and policies for rule breaches. So, I've developed a new system (don't worry, it's not too complex), and I'd like to try it out with the group for two weeks.
At the end of the two weeks, I'll be asking the Admin and some of the members for some feedback on it and how they like it.

So, here it is:

The system would include our rules being split into three groups: Yellow, Orange and Red.
They would be displayed as seen below.

:bulletgreen: GENERAL RULES :bulletgreen:
:bulletyellow: No spam on the Group home page or in Group Notes! This includes "hellos", "I'm New Heres" and "Buy My Stuff!"
:bulletorange: No journals (Except for our own) are permitted in the group, even if they advertise adoptables.
:bulletorange: No Maker Adopts are allowed in the Group. Whether the Maker Game's creator has allowed them to be sold or not is irrelevant, we DO NOT accept them.
:bulletred: No bullying, harassment or blatant abuse of any deviant will be tolerated here.
:bulletred: No Tracing, stealing designs or identity theft. We will not tolerate it.

What do the coloured bullets mean you may ask? Well, they represent the three different offence levels.

Breaching a yellow bullet rule results in an informal warning, but NO STRIKE against you will be recorded.  

Breaching an orange bullet results in a formal warning, resulting in a strike against you which will be recorded in our group records.

Breaching a red bullet is an automatic ban UNLESS the person can give solid evidence as to why they're not guilty (Hacked, consent from artist to use work, etc)

And we'll of course, keep the 'Three Strike' policy we already have.
  One strike: Warning
  Two Strikes: Three day Ban
  Three Strikes: Permanent Ban

What do you guys think? The reason I want to change it is so that we can post a journal with the rules and how they're dealt with is so that members can have a visual guide to refer to. That way you'll know exactly what happens with each rule breach.

So there you go everyone. It's relatively the same as before. the main difference is that we're now acknowledging that some rules are worse to break than others.
I hope you like the new system.

I'll happily answer any enquiries you may have below.

Thanks for reading,
   ~Russetpelt-07

Group Rules & Regulations

Quetz Doll Commish by Rin-chan1234

Welcome to AdorablesAdoptables! Please make sure you are watching the journals section of the group for important updates from staff. The rules for this group may be found below. Please familiarize yourself with them.

We allow linearts & bases now! YCHs are no longer accepted--they are considered customs/commissions by most, not adoptables. We no longer accept Maker Adopts.

Refer to this: fav.me/d7idwq4 list for what's allowed in each folder


:bulletgreen: GENERAL RULES :bulletgreen:
(More detailed information about our rules can be found further below)
:bulletgreen: GENERAL RULES :bulletgreen:
:bulletyellow: No spam on the Group home page or in Group Notes! This includes "hellos", "I'm New Heres" and "Buy My Stuff!"
:bulletorange: No journals (Except for our own) are permitted in the group, even if they advertise adoptables.
:bulletorange: No Maker Adopts are allowed in the Group. Whether the Maker Game's creator has allowed them to be sold or not is irrelevant, we DO NOT accept them.
:bulletred: No bullying, harassment or blatant abuse of any deviant will be tolerated here.
:bulletred: No Tracing, stealing designs or identity theft. We will not tolerate it.
__________________________________________

Posted to the Wrong Folder?
Please note the group with the following:
:bulletyellow: Exact name of the deviation you submitted.
:bulletblack: Exact folder you submitted your deviation to.

Questions?
Questions are welcomed in the comment section.
Questions are welcomed to be noted to the group as well.

Advertising
Please do not advertise in the comment section. It floods the group and makes it difficult for staff to get to the people with questions. Failure to comply will be met with the following:

First Offense - Warning
Second Offense - Suspension for 3 Days
Third Offense - Banned

You have journals on your accounts. Please use those to advertise.
Please refrain from submitting your journals to the group. Submitting them will result in a warning--submitting again will result in a 3-7 day ban.

Theft/Scamming
So you've found someone who's stealing adopts / scamming.
Please do not post in the comments section of the group.
Note the group instead with the following:
:bulletyellow: Name of the offender
:bulletblack: Link to their deviation
:bulletyellow: Link to the original deviation

Once you have done so I or another staff member will create a warning journal with the information you have provided as a group wide alert. A staff member will also hand out a ban and remove the stolen deviation from the group.

Noting the Group
Please do not note the group chain mail, advertisements, or general chat. Group notes build up and collect dust as there is no way to delete them. Doing this slows down our response to immediate issues that need to be dealt with. - Thank you.

Spamming
Please do not post "hi" or "hello" in the comments section. While it's okay to greet people, after a while these messages build up and we can not get to those whom have questions easily.

Bullying
We do not allow our users to bully others. This includes posting hate on another persons' adopts, trashing their name, nothing them hateful things, etc. If someone is bullying you please note the group with the following:
:bulletyellow: Name of person bullying you
:bulletblack: Screenshots (if it's through notes) or links (if in the comments section) of the bullying that happened
:bulletyellow: Where it happened (notes, comments, etc)

Please be aware that if you start harassing the person, swearing and acting in the same manor they did that you could face the same consequences as them. As hard as it may be when being harassed or bullied, please remain civil and never stoop to their level.

Bullying is an automatic ban

Should adoptables that become 'closed' be removed or do we just leave them in the folders?

Excuse me, I was wondering what folder I might put this in? It's a special new kind of adopt method I'm trying out where people get to adopt a whole species simply by developing them. fav.me/d8o9g9c

once upon a time Beck was fairly blocked for three days from this group for submitting a deviation in the wrong folder.

And she lived being blocked ever after.
