Need a Tokota designed? Don't have the resources to do it? Well you have come to the right place! The Design Den is a place where members are able to get their Tokota genotypes designed by one of our experienced designers.

DESIGN DEN IS CURRENTLY CLOSED

How to Request (All Members)


This is only for users who do not have the ability to design their own tokotas or to commission someone to design for them. We must, unfortunately, turn you away if you can afford a design elsewhere; our designers are very busy and cannot accommodate everyone! If you have multiple tokotas, have been active in the group for a long time with the items/TT/tokotas to show for it, or have commissioned designs/artwork recently, for example, you do not qualify. Please keep in mind that this list is not all-inclusive. 

You may submit up to five design requests per month. You may not request a specific designer, or submit a geno more than once; if you are unhappy with the design, you are welcome to go elsewhere for a design, but you cannot resubmit it to get a different design.

Reply to this comment and fill out the form below:

Proof: (this would be ideally a breeding comment)
Any other requests: (eye color, preferences etc.)





How to Request (Adoption Center)


This is only for genos that were obtained from the Adoption Center. 

You may not request a specific designer, or submit a geno more than once; if you are unhappy with the design, you are welcome to go elsewhere for a design, but you cannot resubmit it to get a different design.

Apply to be a Designer


In order to be a Design Den designer, you will need to be very familiar with the Design Guide Handbook rules. You will also need to be active and patient, particularly with newbies, as they may not know all the ins and outs of Tokotas quite yet. At minimum, you are expected to complete 5 designs a week. For every design you complete, you are awarded one credit, which can be collected and redeemed.

To apply to be a Design Den designer, please note DesignDen with the following form:

When did you join Tokotas?:
Design examples: (please list a minimum of five accepted designs!)
Skype username: 
Were you previously a Design Den designer?: 



You will be noted if you are chosen as a DD designer, and will be trained by craeve on how to process design requests.You may be assigned specifically to a queue (either the All Members or the AC queue); if you have a preference, please make a note of it in your application!

If you are inactive for a month, you will be removed from the active designers list and will need to reapply. This is to make sure that you are up to speed on current DC rules! 



FAQ

Once I get my design, do I have to put it through the design approval process?

Nope! All designs made by our designers are approved before being sent to you. As soon as you okay the design, it is added directly to the upload list.

Can I offer suggestions as to what I would like my design to look like?

Yes please do! We want you to be happy with your design, so feel free to tell us your preferences. But please don't be extremely picky, and try to keep an open mind. Our designers are not required to completely redo your design, nor are they required to tweak things excessively. 

Will it take long to get to my design?

It depends on who is available and how many designs they are taking on, so the wait time will fluctuate. However, once your request is claimed you should expect to wait not much longer than a week to hear back!

I don't like my design. Can I get a different one?

Unfortunately, no. You may request some minor changes from the designer, but if the design would need to be majorly altered or completely redone, you will have to commission someone or do it yourself. You must include the DD designer in the design credit unless you get the design completely redone.

I don't like my design. Can I edit it myself?

You will need to talk to your designer. If they agree to let you edit it yourself, however, you will not be able to use the Design Den to get your tokota approved and uploaded - you will need to go through regular Design Central with your edited design.You must include the DD designer in the design credit.

Any idea when this could possibly be open? I've recently applied for a Tokota from the adoption center, and I want to be prepared if I am granted my own. (:

Is it a requirement to have a Skype account to become a Designer?
I know it is used to give information on upcoming events(Atleast I think that is how it's used)
But, would we even be considered without a Skype?
DesignDen's avatar
Skype is the main way we communicate, from everyday stuff to if any issues arise, so it's unfortunately a necessary thing for applicants.

This isn't where designs are put in for approval.

When the tokota group re-opens (which might be in a few more days) you'll need to go to Design Central for tokota approval and follow the steps there.
