Trait Wiki

Bullet; Blue The Pillowing Trait Wiki is now fully functional and up to date! Bullet; Blue
Please note that this is the guide we will be going off of when registering pillowings now, and that some features rarities have changed! So please look it over before registering your pillowing! This means that the Trait Guide hosted on dA is out of date and defunct, please do not use it when designing your pillowing!

Redesigns

Bullet; Blue We're sorry to say, but there will be no more free redesigns. Bullet; Blue
It was ultimately just too subjective to decide what was "too drastic". However there is a brand new Rewards Shop item that serves the same purpose! It is called a Redesign Kit, and allows you to redesign within the same rarity tier. It will also allow you to redesign your pillowing with more freedom than the free redesigns allowed! The Rarity Upgrade Tickets still act as redesign tickets as well, this item is for those who have no need of higher rarity traits!

Prompts

Bullet; Blue We've got a whole new Prompt system in place! Bullet; Blue
Prompt Packs are replacing the bi-weekly prompt system, and have much cooler and numerous rewards! Please take a look at the new journal to see just what it's all about!
Pillowing Pile Prompt Packs!Welcome everyone to the Pillowing-Pile Prompt Packs! We are going to be hosting both permanent and monthly rotating prompts here on the pillowing-pile group. This is your opportunity to hoard up those coins for the Pillowing Pile Rewards Shop. Or just have some fun and do some worldbuilding with your Pillowings and Lintlings. Who can resist showing off their cutie?
While these prompts may be primarily focused towards Pillowings, please feel free to get creative and use your Lintling(s)! Lintlings will be getting their own custom Prompt Packs once we get the ARPG running!
Please note: You must choose either Drawing or Writing for a Prompt Pack, doing both for one Pack will not award you extra CC. You can however choose to do one Pack with drawing, and another one with writing! You just cannot combine them for added CC.
Rules and Rewards
Drawing

Spotlight

Bullet; Blue The Spotlight works slightly differently! Bullet; Blue
Not a huge change, the limit is still 3 drawings, and the CC awards have been changed to match with the new Prompt Pack system!
Re-introducing SpotlightsSpotlights have been a wonderful feature running in the group since September of 2016!
You probably have noticed the spotlight item in the Rewards Shop.
Spotlight: This item is used like "ad space" on the pillowing pile group page. A user will be displayed and have their (pillowing or lintling) artwork shown and a direct link to their commissions. Spotlight item is a one time use and begins on the first opening for the spotlight, after that it will run for 30 days then be taken down or replaced with the next spotlight in queue. The same user will not be shown month after month. Users will be put in a queue system to help diversify each showing.
600 cc
This means people can queue up and feature themselves on the group page! Show off your art, writing, crafts, and that sweet commission info!
Even better? You also get to feature one of your pillowing or lintling characters alongside with you! During your spotlight time, 30 days, people

Lintling Rarities

Bullet; Blue We've worked on solidifying the Lintling trait rules! Bullet; Blue
The Generations traits are now uniform across the board, it doesn't matter if it was purchased, or from a creation slot! Users will have access to the features listed in this guide, and only Guest Artists/CloverCoin will have access to multiple Rare, Very Rare and Special traits.

If you do a mock up of how you want to ditch the pink and send it to via note, we should be able to have a better understanding if a redesign kit is needed or not.

Does the change to redesigns include minor changes in colors with no alteration to traits? Such as black to dark brown or bright red to a more orangey red? I have a pillowing I got quite a while back that I had started to tweak but never finished it :/

There will actually be an official announcement/information all together with how the redesign kit works soon~! If you are making any REALLY noticeable changes, you probably need the kit. But like.. slight hue-color change, body weight and anatomy, soft moving around similar markings. These are all things we frankly don't care and won't chase after you for making the pillowing more custom to you, but if you need to switch any features, like standard ears to droop? You'd need a redesign kit. Maybe you have a blue pillowing but you want it to be yellow? That would take a kit too! So usually pretty substantial changes are the only ones you'll need a kit for.

From what you're asking of, that seems like it doesn't need a kit at all~!

Aboutthe personal drawing awarding: what about old pictures we drew? Is there a way we can post them to earn the CC? Or does this just count for new pictures?
