Treasure FridayPLEASE READ
If you have more than one qualifying Griffian, you can choose more than one square (max 5 squares total with the use of 5 qualifying Dom Griffians). This may be altered later, as we are watching the effects on the market.
What is Treasure Friday?
Treasure Friday is a game you may enter once per week between Fridays. Every game will end on Friday after the comment is 7 days old and begin the following week's game immediately after.
At the end of each week, the winning squares will be chosen and all the comments will be responded to. Each play does not guarantee a win but if luck is in your favor, you may win items that can be used, traded, gifted or sold! Please keep in mind that some items are account bound and as such can not be gifted/traded/sold.
How do I play Treasure Friday?

Constructive Criticism MessageNOTE FROM CREATOR: EVERYONE WHO IS MENTIONED IN THIS ARE EITHER EXAMPLES OR BEING SOLELY MENTIONED ABOUT BECAUSE THEY DID SOMETHING NOT OK. PLEASE DO NOT GO HARASS ANYONE MENTIONED HERE. AND IF YOU DECIDE TO CONFRONT ANYONE, BE RESPECTFUL. THANK YOU.
So lately a certain user by the name of SeredyKreisler120 has been really getting on my nerves. Below you can see what type of comments they post. Now this wouldn’t be a problem except they seem very aware that they’re trying to either troll me or try to get involved with my comics when I clearly show I’m not interested. The very first picture shows how they actually are.
I will block them but this does bring up a problem I really need to address for everyone so that way not only will you guys be able to share critiques and ideas in a way that will be good for both of us, but it’ll help me improve and give you guys the best I can do.
Blacklisted and ScreenshotsI have had these files on my computer for documentation (even though screenshots can be forged, I still feel the need to keep these screenshots as proof because my comments are contestantly being misquoted, hidden, or removed)
I am posting this because I am sound in my choices and how I carry myself and believe that if I were to receive death threats again from this user It will need to be well documented.
A youtube user claimed to be my scratch account (-SkyStar-) and used the channel name SkyStarArtist. They have changed the name of the channel since than, but if you search the old name it still appears as the first result.
The user claimed to be myself from a different website (Scratch) and after asking them to remove my videos and stop claiming my identity this conversation ensued on their youtube discussion page, the youtuber has changed their name and channel names several times but as you can see from my replies to the chain it says "+skyst

NuzRea UpdateHiatus is gonna be a smidge longer than expected. I finally got over my block with the one page I was working on but with recent information about pokemon Sun and Moon coming to light, there's a strong possibility of a sequel :')
I had always wanted to do a sequel with Pokemon Z and I had a pretty solid plot in mind for it but after it was announced we were skipping Z and I had time to mourn I gave up on a sequel but, as I said not one sentence ago "with recent information about Pokemon Sun and Moon coming to light", I've thought up a possible sequel scenario. But of course to know if it would work or not I have to play the game first.
The only reason that is keeping the updates up is because if it will be a sequel, I'd want to be able to start writing elements of it into the story now so they do work as a two part story and it's just just a sequel for the sake of a sequel, you feel?
So postponed until November, I already pre-ordered the game and it takes me like days to finish a
