Most adoptable sales and auctions are reserved for Patrons in priority, and take place on my Discord server. Adoptables that weren't sold on Patreon will go up for sale publicly (most likely on Twitter or DeviantArt).
- About adoptable auctions
You must be 18+ to be allowed to participate in auctions.
You must be polite with others and play fair. Any inappropriate behavior will lead to being kicked or banned from the current auction +/- future ones.
Always reply to the highest bid with a higher bid.
For one given batch of adoptables (= adoptables sold together at the same time), one person may participate in the auctions of several adopts at the same time. However one person may effectively buy only 1 adoptable from a given batch.
In the case you won several auctions of a batch, the adoptable you will buy is the one for which you bid the highest price. The other auctions you may have won will then go to the second winner, etc.
Auction vocabulary reminder:
Starting bid (SB) = the lowest price possible for a given adopt.
Minimum increase (MI) = the minimum amount of money a bidder must add to the previous bid.
"Bonus milestone" (BM) = a price from which bonus art is added to the rewards the final buyer will receive.
Auto-buy (AB) = the price of the adopt for someone who would like to buy it immediately, by-passing the auction.
The auction closes 24 hours after the last highest bid, or immediately after an Auto-buy (AB).
- About buying an adoptable
Once you've received confirmation of the sale from me, I will ask for your email and send you a PayPal invoice with the final price of the adoptable. The price must be paid in full within 2 weeks after receiving the invoice (payment plans can be discussed for payments above 250€). You won't get ownership nor any artwork related to the adoptable before the full price is paid.
You receive ownership of the design as soon as the full payment is processed.
Some adoptables may be sold with bonus artworks: please refer to the specific rules of each sale or auction to see what kind of artwork(s) you will receive. You cannot request any more artworks than the ones specified in said rules (unless we agree on additional payment).
Some bonus artworks are made only after the adoptable has been sold, so there may be a delay between the moment you purchased the adopt and the moment you receive all the bonus artworks.
- About adoptable ownership
The owner may make changes to the design without asking for my permission.
You can give it a name, a personality, a backstory, use it for role-play, make or commission art of it from other artists etc.
Crediting me as the original artist for the design is highly appreciated but not required, unless asked. Do not say you were the creator of the original design!
You cannot alter or remove my signature / watermark from the artworks you received from me.
You must keep the adopt for at least 1 year. After 1 year of ownership, you may give, trade or sell the design to someone else if you wish.
Using the adopt in situations implying any illegal activities is strictly forbidden. Using them for NFTs is strictly forbidden.
