Re: Recent Copied Group Ideas

Mon Nov 23, 2015, 8:31 PM
weisk and I noticed a recent trend with people using our Mothcats ideas for their own groups. While we understand our ideas aren't entirely original, it's kind of frustrating when someone is blatantly copying our ideas. 

Neither of us are mad at anyone who's doing it-- just please ask us or credit us if you plan on implementing similar systems/events to your groups in the future. We won't stop you, but we'd just like a little acknowledgement is all. 

We won't call anyone out who's done this to us already, nor do we plan on it. 

(More info here): 
Group Inspiration DisclaimerHey guys! I was kind of hoping that I would not have to make a journal related to this, but both ShinyCation and myself are beginning to grow concerned.
Recently we have noticed a few members in Mothcats have been adapting some of the things that we do with our member systems and events to use in their own groups. ShinyCation, reptrion, and myself are all very aware that many of the things we do are not 100% original. We accept that many people may make similar creatures or use similar systems in their groups. What we do not expect is to see a lot of the ideas - ones that we spent a good amount of time and work on to make sure they are fair and work well - being almost entirely copied without any kind of credit and without us being asked. It is painfully obvious to us that our ideas are being copied when the duplicate product is near identical to what we currently are using.
While we are not mad, it is somewhat frustrating to see this happen, especially because in both recent situat

Holiday Wishlist Maymay

Sat Nov 14, 2015, 8:26 PM
(Maymay is an inside joke with myself because I'm lame....) 

:xmas: revamp 2 STEP ONE

Make a post to your DA journal. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a ______ icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("all I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV."). The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your DA or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.

:xmas: revamp 2 STEP TWO

Surf around your friends list (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now, here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use -- do it.

You need not spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf -- to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not -- it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Give, and you might receive. and you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

:xmas: revamp 2 MY WISHLIST

  1. Art of Kaze x Sona New OTP omg...
  2. Art of any of my other characters
  3. Any of my dream Foxponds 
    • Please let me know if you see them UFT/S!!
  4. Another Foxfan / Foxfan MYO ... QwQ Gotta save my birthday money for a winter one because OHO my fave season is winter....
  5. Rainbow Alpacasso
  6. Tsumikko Alpacasso Plushies 
    • I need the blue, white, and yellow ones to complete the set! :0
  7. Any Tsuchineko Plushie
    • My favorite one is Mike (the calico one) 
  8. This acorn necklace I've been eyeing for like three years now
  9. Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon
  10. Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer 
For the physical items, you can always send me a note for my physical address/details. <3 

On a side note, my birthday is also December 22nd, so if you do decide to do a thing for me!! It could count as double or something. :00

Found enough Foxfan friends (don't wanna overwhelm her. ;w; )!! Thanks guys. <3 

Here's my precious babe, Sona. 

Foxfan: Sona by ShinyCation

And a short personality description I'm reusing from her Toyhouse: 
Sona is very quiet and socially awkward. She believes flowers and all living things are beautiful. She prefers to speak through flower language because she feels like it's easier to express herself with them (she's insecure about her speech because she can get anxious and stutter). She is extremely thoughtful. She has the tendency to give flowers and handmade crafts to others. She cares a lot others (how they're feeling and what they think of her). Sona has self-confidence issues, so she likes to accessorize with lots of flowers to cover up her insecurity of being too pink. Her fan was originally solid off-white with pink lace, but she dyed a portion of it light green and blue.

Hey guys!! Back from my (partial) break from dA... as you would've seen last night. 

It was brought to my attention that weisk and QueenDirtbag have a mutual friend who is suffering from cancer. I want to help them out, so we planned a special set of Mothcats in order to raise money: 

Mothcat Cancer Fundraiser by QueenDirtbag

Some of these Mothcats have rare traits, so that's something to consider if you're a fan of Mothcats! All proceeds earned from this Mothcat set will go towards Sam's cancer treatment. 

Or if you're not interested in Mothcats, please consider donating to his GoFundMe or at least spreading the word. 

Thanks so much, you guys!

Gonna take a break for about a week

Sun Nov 1, 2015, 8:37 PM
Hey guys! I'm gonna go AWOL for about a week as I catch up on studies for some upcoming tests/exams that I have. 

I'll be back hopefully by this weekend with a special species collab Mothcats set. ^^ 

In the meantime, weisk will be taking care of basic Mothcats duties, like updating bank accounts and such. reptrion should be helping out once he comes back from No-Internet Land. 

If you have any questions with MYO's, please still forward them to me! I'll be checking back every once in a while- I just won't be on 24/7 like I have been these past few weeks.

(Hopefully this will take care of my minor artist's block too.)

Wish me luck and see you later!! <3 

I'd also like to apologize for the delay in gifts and such- I know I promised them to you guys by this weekend, but Trick-or-Treating was kind of a last minute plan that ended up lasting the whole day yesterday. I haven't had much time since to work on them because Saturdays are my only really free days for me to sit down and draw. Sorry again!

PetSmart was having a 75% off sale on pet costumes, and.... 

Let's just say I went crazy. >w>

First costume was a dino! It was a tad small, so I went back and swapped it for a medium - which turned out to be too big (they didn't have smalls in stock, which would've been perfect.)

Second thing I tried was the Ladybug costume, which I bought for him when I went to swap out the dino:

He liked this one better than the dino one for some reason and kept it on for a pretty long time. :U

His favorite was the butterfly wing one... which I guess goes to show like mother, like son. My true Mothcat. <3

Soulfoxes for Trade

Tue Oct 27, 2015, 9:03 AM
Soulfox: Jade by ShinyCationSoulfox: Leo by ShinyCation

I have these babes who are for trade. Jade (the left one) is a rare MYO, and Leo (the right one) is from SetSaiI's Halloween advent event.

I love them both, but I'm not too into Soulfoxes right now, sadly.

Jade comes with +6 pieces of art and an icon, all of which you can see here: Toyhouse Link

Only seeking @/PrePAWSterous Foxponds as a trade. Do not offer me money, art, or any other CS please.
I'm not expecting these offers, but I will also accept Foxfans

- - - 

I will add onto my offer for any of these Foxponds. (And I will offer both for any of my "to die for" Foxponds as well.)
Please don't ask/harass the current owners to trade/sell their Foxponds though. Only offer them if YOU currently own them. Thanks!
