Adoptable Discussion Post

Howdy everyone!

We’ve started to see an increase in the number of questions and bewares involving adoptables so it’s time for a discussion post. We’d love to hear your thoughts on adoptable transactions. Some things we’d love to hear about:

-Reselling, Trading, and Gifting. What do you allow as a seller? What do you avoid as a buyer? Does the type of art being resold (one adopt, an adopt with new pieces of art, or an adopt that has been made into a fursuit) change the way you feel about this?

-Design Rights. If a new piece of reference art is created for an adopt can the customer now sell the design? What rights do you think an artist has to a design they create?

Those are only a few questions to get a conversation going. Please feel free to leave any and all thoughts you have about adopts as long as you:
- Don’t name artists, species, or customers by name. This isn’t a beware post. Keep it anonymous.
- Try to keep the conversation on the transactions around adoptables and not to the concept of adoptables themselves. People love adoptables! We want to know your thoughts on the business side.
- Keep it civil.

We look forward to your discussion!

Do NOT repost your old bewares. They are being archived.

As a buyer, I look for rules that aren't ridiculously strict. I follow the "let me know if you sell/trade/gift" along with "don't resell more than you bought it." Some have gone through the cracks that say not to reupload the artwork. All I have to do is ask if I can (which always includes credit) and if not, that's fine with me. Some don't even allow resells, just trade or gift, though I only buy adoptables that call to me with TOS like that so that's rare.

As a seller, all I ask is for people not to sell more than they bought/got it for and not to use it commercially mostly due to the base that I used and I have to follow the TOS for it. If one day I do make some for scratch, I'll just say "Please no mass commercial use with my artwork" since it'll be a pain to keep track of everything.
