New status update journal, Design approval reminder, Backlogs blabla, Claim your CoL rewards
Status updates has now new journal for posting status and skill point updates. The old journal reached over 10.000 comments without us noticing, so the nesting has been broken. This may cause some rank proof links being lost in the black hole. We're terribly sorry for this happening.
We will go through the already posted Status update requests on the old thread, but Skill point thread is beyond saving. So if you remember posting skill point update request and it wasn't handled, please re-post the request to new journal.

Design approval reminder. Do not re-post your approval or correction request multiple times. Once you've posted to the comment thread, admin will get to you once they reach you in the queue. Re-posting while waiting the admin comment should not be done before getting actual comment from admin.

We're now slowly getting back from the holidays and back to catching backlogs. In general, we aim to make it so that no-one has to wait more than week/7 days for reply(so when posting request, prepare to wait 1-7 days for reply).
Backlog might happen (especially) on holidays when admins are allowed to rest and spend time with their families/loved ones, or when they've caught flu/fever/other sickness. It's important to remember this is our hobby, not our real job(even though Kukuri being real job would be awesome).
Thank you all for understanding, we're trying to keep the game running as best as we can :heart:

Carnival of Life 2018 reward claiming will close last day of January 2019! Don't forget to claim your loots!

Divine Shop ends at 1.1.2019 9PM GMT, Varma claiming ends tomorrow, Kukuri of the month chosen
Due to being the scatterbrain I am, I never put clear ending date for Divine Shop. SO, I gave it a small extension with a clear date to avoid any mishaps.

Also the holiday Varmas are here for only one more day! If you haven't claimed yours yet, do it soon so you don't miss out!

Kukuri of the Month was chosen! Congratulations O-RainKnight-O who charmed the audience with Bishop 759! Make sure to vote for the next month's Kukuri to give them the spotlight!

Happy new years!


        29.12.2018
REMINDER: Breeding closing for the month, Vote for Kukuri of the month, Divine shop closing soon and CoL badges have been awarded.
Breeding will close tomorrow (30.12) at 9PM GMT+2, make sure to post your breedings before then! The breeding will be opened again when the remainings breedings have been rolled.

Remember to vote for the Kukuri of the Month! There's certainly someone out there who really could use the moment to stand on the spotlight!

Divine Shop is closing on 31st, but before that there's one more semi-custom auction on 30th! If you've been looking for one, keep your eyes open!

And lastly, all the Carnival of Life badges have been given out! If your Kukuri is still missing one, head off to error reports, and give a link to the kukuri and the event COMMENT showing their participation!

Remember to bundle up for the winter cold! Getting frostbite is no joking manner and can leave permanent damage.

        26.12.2018
Shroomification arts are here, Divine shop closes on Monday the 31st, CoL Reward claiming reminder
Apparently we are really busy with the updates almost daily during holidays, but I promise we are resting too.

Contamination art is finally up for public upload! Now you can add the contamination to your kukuri when you apply the Contamination potion in import updates.

Divine Shop 2018 will be closing on 31st of December! If you still planned to get something from the shop, you might wanna hurry.

Carnival of Life 2018 reward claiming will close last day of January 2019! We will post another reminder for claiming somewhere in January. Don't forget to claim your loots!



        24.12.2018
Lore catch up-page and new lore layout, holiday Varmas are up
Happy holidays on actual holiday day (at least here in the cold land of Finland)! As a christmas present we've made lore so far page, where you can catch up on what has happened in the events! Maybe you're an old member who wants to relive a bit of the past, or a new one who has been left in the dark until now. Regardless, it's pretty fun to watch back to! As special celebration for the page, both this and folklore have a special layout skin with the art from GryAdventures, so big thanks to them too!

Also holiday Varmas are here once again! Go claim yours - for free! But they're only there for the new year's, so make sure to claim yours in time!

Again, take care of your safety. It's easy to get carried away in the holiday season, but your safety is more important than appearing cool. And to those not having a pleasant holidays - Stay strong. You are worth it. You are loved. No environment around you changes this fact.

Carnival of Life healing thread closing up, semi-custom flashsale soon
There's only a hour left to post your healings of shroomification to the healing thread of Carnival of Life, and then it will be closed and you cannot heal your Kukuri with an art or literature piece. If you've planned to get your shroomified baby healed, be sure to do it soon!

Likewise within a hour there's another flash sale happening in the Divine Shop 22th of December 7pm EST or midnight GMT. As it turns out I'm very bad at timezones no matter how hard I try, so if the times are confusing you, the first time listed is always right. Apologies for any inconviniences this might have caused.

Keep yourself safe during the holidays! 


        21.12.2018
Some training and design approval clarification, new things in the Divine shop and happy holidays from the admin team!
Times are starting to get busy in group, as well as in real life, so hear me out! We don't have much time before the year comes to an end. 

First of all, if you're doing Kukuri bonding with two kukuris which belong to different owners, only one of you need to post the entries in training completion! Both kukuris will still get the badge.

If you kukuris needs another side in design approvals, always remember to flip the other side picture so the kukuri is facing opposite direction!

There's something new dropped to the Divine Shop! Looks like a whole bunch of SPECIAL EGGS have been scattered all over again! These are new kinds of eggs and can be purchased even if you've already used your other egg limit!

Last but not least, the whole admin team is taking a break during the holidays! We'll most likely still hover around, but please allow us to have a momentary breathing moment, things might be a little slower because of family visiting and overall holiday hopping! We'll get back soon enough!

Remember to eat a lot of good food, remember your loved ones and spent a wholesome holiday overall!~

First semi-custom auction going, CoL healing thread deadline
The first Semi-custom auction has started in Divine Shop! Apologies for certain silly founder forgetting that timesaving is a thing that exists and the american times were one hour off, hopefully it is now fixed!

Carnival of Life is closing it's doors, and the healers are slowly leaving the premises. You have now 2 weeks (22.12.2018) to 11PM GMT time to post your healing entries if you wish to get rid of the contamination, after that it must be cured with the antidote and healing entries will not be accepted. Please be sure to post your heals in time!

New bank, Crafting reminder, Celestial rock max 3 eggs, COL rewards claiming open
Hello.... it's  me! Ma-rusti! I'm bringing good news!

Carnival of Life Reward claiming is open
! Read the reward claiming form with time and remember to link the proofs correctly - with that: roll down to the journal and go wild!

We'll have the first semi-custom auction tomorrow! Read more of the time from Divine Shop 2018~

We've had the same bank for a long while, with multiple admins old and new in it. As there was recent mishap of it, we felt it was time to create a new bank doc to make sure there's no-one with access who shouldn't be. The new bank is foundable from The Bank! Sorry for the inconvenience.

Bank goblin has sent me to relay message regarding crafting: When crafting tattered feathers, you can craft them in packs of 5 only. So you can do 5, 10, 15, 20>>, but for example 7 or 11 is not possible.

We also wanted to clear up that Celestial Rock egg maximum is 3. No bonus that enlarges the nest amount from the original amount is applied to celestial rock.
I got feeling I forgot something, even with the reminder list we had prepared Discord Emoji - Thinking If I forgot something, you'll hear of us soon! Until then, stay warm!

Kukuri bonding, monthly quest change, kukuri of the month, extra info on traveling, some link cleaning
Does your Kukuri have a soulmate, someone they always come back to? Well, now you can truly showcase their love with Kukuri bonding! With this special training the pair will gain +2fp bonding bonus whenever they're portrayed in pictures together (full body, colored, shaded)!

As month changes, so does monthly quest! This time you'll be helping wild animals, and as a reward dog and cat friends are back with new additions! And yes, there additions are immediately appliable, even for sets bought from Divine shop.

GinSasori's Sweets 6102 won the kukuri of the month this time with her cuteness, and you may start voting for January's Kukuri! Which of the kukuris has caught your eye lately? What story has stuck into your mind?

Traveling can sometimes be confusing, so now there is a guide to help out with it! Hopefully you'll find it both useful and inspiring! 

And lastly, some link clean up. Overall in navigation, but also open chest/herb pouches links can now also be found from bank to hopefully make people's lives easier!

Hope you enjoy the last month of the year! Make the most of it, but try to not fill yourself up too much with sweets and treats!

New banking threads, Suraya, Untuva and Raei arrive late, Cleaned news, Breeding+Kuku of the month closed, Who's that p--Badge?
We got brand new banking threads for item trades, stockpiling and applying familiars! Old bank was getting very close to 10,000 comments - aka breaking - so we had to evacuate! 

RaeiUntuva and Suraya were added to the Divine Shop 2018! Terribly sorry for forgetting these three from the shop. 

Breeding and Kukuri of the Month are closed for November! They will return in December~

Old news were moved to archive(linked at the bottom). The journal was growing looooooooooooooooooong!

We are really close finishing rolling of Carnival of Life 2018 too! We are starting to give out the award badges to kukuri who joined in the event in next few days. These will be added automatically to all kukuris imports that took part in the event - we will make news once they all have been given out.
Reward claiming opens once all CoL entries have been rolled, but I think it's good time to start gathering your proofs!

..
...
But what's this??
Badge of Bonding by momma-kuku
If you are looking to draw cool prompts, you might be surprised at the start of DecemberStay tuned!

soo for the ref thing i can totaly see adding genetic stuf fis a nono but how about little things like a bow or a collar ?
maybe a small scar or unquie antlershape?
for the first things maybe someone dont want to hide even a tiny bit of the kuku in the import on the other things there maybe cant afford the items as for now

would in these cases a ref be ok that shows these thigns even if not on the imports ;v; ?

This whole thing is basically because people started trending with adding features kukuris did not have.

Like having kukuri have a different type of feathers it actually has, or horns, or ears, adding ruffle when kukuri has none. Stuff like this is not okay. You are allowed to plan ahead with your kukuri's look and draw it with clothing and stuff. ANd do styling like normally. Drawn references should be fine ;3;

Ok sooooo
i kinda have a problem with the pixel thing? 
in fate points and skill points section it states this 

" When the Kukuri is 150px*150px or smaller, bigger pixel art counts for normal bonuses. 
Headshots are half the amounts. "

but in this new announcement
you said; " the kukuri in the picture must be over 150x150px to count for any FP!

So 50 x 50 pixel icons wont count as any fp what so ever? 
Or am I misunderstanding everything? 
Maybe you should put on a limit with the pixels? [like minimum of 25 x 25 or 50 x 50]
Reply
:iconjalohauki:
Jalohauki Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2018
Pixel icons are not affected, the FP rule is mostly reminded for training and activity pictures since there the kukuris must be bigger! Since pixel icons have their own rules in FP counting pages, they are not affected by this rule.

Good update. If there someday comes way to say goodbye for unwanted imports. This could happen as greying whole import what means that this kukuri is no longer present and cant count as in any activity / cant get it back / cant do anything with it. In breedings its markings would not affect in results etc.

There is always way to decease the kukuri import ´v` That way it cannot be used in activities, breeding nor it cannot be claimed back.

It is mentioned in Group Rules ´v`/
- If you wish to decease your Kuku for a reason or another, you may do that. The same goes for neutering, but do realize these actions are irreversible.

Yeah, I would say it is done by updating the import :0 We haven't dealt with this before so it'll be addressed clearly when it's done for the first time.
