Q. why are your adopts so expensive?
A. they actually are not, my prices are based on the time i put into each adopt (1-5 hours) i charge about 200p per hour on my adopts (working wage here is 8usd an hour, i work for 1/4th of that, about 2usd an hour) not counting the time it takes to prep the base
Q. why do you only hold for 24 hours?
A. most of my adopts sell in the first three days, after that they generally sell very slowly or not at all, i only hold for 24 hours because holds are likely to be abandoned and i only have a short time to get my adopts out there
Q. why don't you have a set upload time? where did the set i bought from go??
A. i put up new sets as old ones go down. i generally have 7 or less open at a time and as sets sell i remove them from my gallery. i do leave up stash'd adopts indefinitely though so DO save the notes with your unwatermarked images
Q. why do your rules say can't i resell adopts i buy from you?
A. this may change in the future but for now i see too many people selling adopts that they either don't have permission to sell or don't know the creator of and so cannot get permission. i would rather people did not buy my adopts because i don't allow resells then to 'forget' i made them and then sell them off to others who then get reported for 'stealing' my designs for sale because i was never notified of the transaction. i allow gifting because it is clear who is taking my adopts illegally when the designs are not allowed to be resold to begin with
Q. can i post the adopt i bought on my da/website/ect?
A. of course! if you buy it and i am credited as the creator you can post it anywhere you would like<3
Q. can i mod the adopt i bought? pretty please? can you?
A. you can totally mod any adopts you've bought however you want and if you can't mod but want to then you can totally ask me to<3 usually i charge a small fee but i want you to be happy and would gladly see the adopt 'fixed' than see it mouldering in stash never to be used
Q. i want free adopts! i've seen you give them away before!
A. short answer is 'no' the long answer is that i rarely give adopts away for free and i ONLY give them to personal friends, people i am doing trades with and people who buy a lot of art/adopts in a short span of time.
Q. do you do mature adopts? what if i bought an adopt and i want an MA version?
A. i generally do not do them but i am always open to making MA versions for a small fee at the time of adoption, feel free to ask when buying
Q. i don't want to pay money for your adopts. plenty of people give them away for free and you should to. i don't think it is wrong to just take what i want, what's the big deal?
A. the big deal is that is STEALING you are outright stealing from me and breaking the law when you do it. don't steal from me(or anyone else). it is wrong and actively hurts me when i cannot pay for my internet, my hospital bills(and there are a lot of them) or for my meals. show a little respect, please
Q. i bought an adopt, can i use it for rps?
A. if you credit me as the creator of the art then you can do whatever you'd like for it, as long as i am credited it is a-ok to use it for rps
Q. can i trace my adopt to make art?
A. something like 3/4ths of my adopts are made on base(both my own and other peoples') so no. just go use the base, it will save you lots of time and arguments
Q. i don't want my adopt anymore, what should i do?
A. well, i do not do buybacks but i do let buyers trade or gift adopts to others so if you know someone who might want it you can pass it along to them, just remember i DO still require credit and notification of the transaction. i have had a few people not do this and it got kind of messy
Q. can i use the adopt i bought to make more adopts?
A. depends on how you go about it. send me a note first and let's talk
Q. my question was not answered, help?
A. if you have more questions please feel free to note me. i am on almost every day so i will get back to you within 24 hours with an answer
