submitting an myo design

 
Looking to get more characters? One of those ways is by getting MYO slots and designing new characters through them!
 

1. get an myo slot

You can get more MYOs through the MYO Shop or the Cash Shop! Since these are only tickets, you'll need to use and convert them into slots.

Go to your inventory, head down to the MYO ticket category, and select the ticket you want to convert into an MYO slot.

Once selected, hit the "use slot" option and hit "open".

You should now have an MYO slot of the chosen MYO ticket!

2. design

Follow the design rules! If it is a Hatchling MYO, you will need to follow hatchling design rules as well. (Maximum of 3 colors, not including eyes/mouth/halo/bib colors; Iotas are exempt from this rule and instead need a minimum of 3 colors.)

Make sure to look over the traits of the species you are designing for so you can see what they can have! (And just in case you are accidentally drawing a trait you did not intend for/cover.)

MYO Hatchlings cannot have traits.

3. submit

Below here will be an in-depth guide to the MYO design submission process!

This will be the same process every time when submitting a character!


Walkthrough: how to submit an myo design

Step 1. Find the MYO slot you want to use and select it. You can find the MYO slots page in the following ways:

  • ranebopets > characters > my myo slots
  • [your user] > profile > myo slots (in the left sidebar)
  • home > my myo slots

Step 2. Go to "Submit MYO Design" in the left sidebar to access the MYO Approval Request page and hit "Create Request".

Step 3. Fill out the form.
At the top of the page you will see five tabs; Status, Comments, Masterlist Image, Add-ons, and Traits. Please make sure to hit Save at the bottom of the page after every stepThe red X at the top will change to a green O when everything is filled out!

1. Status

This tab shows the status of your request. We'll come back to this later!

2. Comments

This section is for any additional notes about your MYO design that you feel are necessary. If you don't have anything to add, simply put None, N/A, or just leave it blank.

3. Masterlist image

    1. Upload the new masterlist image. Ranebopets does not generate watermarks for you, so if you would like your Masterlist Image to be watermarked, please create a watermarked version yourself for upload!
      • Note: all image updates require a new thumbnail. You can upload a custom thumbnail image or use the Image Cropper to create one from your uploaded Masterlist Image. The thumbnail MUST be of your Ranebopet.
    2. Credit the designer(s) of your MYO. You must list all designers; you can list multiple designers by using the + button to the right of the Designer URL field.
      • If the designer is Yourself or another onsite user select them from the dropdown and leave the "Designer URL" field blank
      • If the designer is offsite, link them in the "Designer URL" field.
    3. Credit the artist of the Masterlist Image. You can list multiple artists by using the + button to the right of the Artist URL field.
      • If the artist is Yourself or another onsite user select them from the dropdown and leave the "Artist URL" field blank
      • If the artist is offsite, link them in the "Artist URL" field.

4. Add-Ons

This section is where you will select all of the items you are using for your MYO design if you are adding additional traits that are not included with your MYO Slot. It may be easier to complete this tab after you have completed the Traits tab!

Under Your Inventory, select all the necessary items for the additional traits you are adding to your MYO design. If you are having trouble, you can Filter your inventory by category! 

5. Traits

If you are only using the default traits that come with your MYO slot, you do not need to fill out this tab—check that all the information is correct, and save. If you are adding additional traits, you will need to add them here.

To add new traits:

    1. Click Add Trait.
    2. In the Traits dropdown menu, type in all or part of the trait name to search for it. Click the appropriate trait when you find it in the list.
      • Note: You must include all the exact traits you are using. Do not use a "+1 [rarity] trait" trait listing! All traits have their own listing; these generalized traits are used for MYO slots with special additions.
    3. Repeat this for every new trait you are adding to this character.

The approving moderator will change the Character Rarity if needed after approval.

If you are using an item like the Betrayal of Halcyon potion or the Trabbowl potion to change a character's subspecies,  go to Species Subtype and select the subspecies from that dropdown. Otherwise, do not change the Species Subtype!

6. Status (Again)

If you have properly filled out the other four sections and saved them as you went, you can now submit your redesign! Click Submit Request at the bottom of this page to send this to the admin queue for approval!

updating a character design

 
Want to give your Ranebopet a fresh new look, just add some small details, or even grow them up? You can do this by submitting a Design Update request!
 

1. Design

As usual, follow the design rules! If you are growing up a hatchling, make sure they retain at least 2 of their original colors!

Make sure to look over the traits of the species you are designing for so you can see what they can have! (And just in case you are accidentally drawing a trait you did not intend for/cover.)

If you are completely overhauling a design, there's an extent to how much you can overhaul them. Most overhauls will be accepted, but if you want to make sure yours is acceptable, feel free to send in a question in the Ranebopets Discord #help channel (16+ only) or in the FAQ page.

2. get items you need

If you are planning on adding traits, changing colors/markings, growing them up, or even overhauling the character, you'll need the required items to make these changes! (Growing up a character does not need any color/marking related items.)

You can get the required items through the Trait Shop or the Cash Shop!

You can remove traits and/or edit small details without the need for items.

Tip! Checking/selecting the items in the Trait Shop or clicking the item names in the Cash Shop will provide you a description of what they can do.

f.a.q.


Q: Can I upload my design to Toyhou.se if it hasn't been approved yet?

Ranebopets are ONLY allowed to be uploaded to toyhou.se and other sites if they have wording in their title and tags that clearly state they are unofficial or not yet approved. Not following these rules may result in a warning. Trading these entries to other users as though they were officially approved by Ranebopets is considered scamming and will result in further action. 

Q: I don't see X trait! Where did it go?

If a certain trait is missing, it may have a different name or not be added! Please look through the trait encyclopedia for the trait! If you believe a trait is missing from our database, please note the Ranebopets DeviantART group or ask in the Discord #help channel.

Q: Why was my MYO denied?

If your MYO was denied, make sure you read the moderator comments. You may need to make edits to your design. If no rejection message was included, please contact the moderator via deviantART or Discord!
