Some people make rules on their adoptables that state you have to draw them X times or before X date, or they will be reclaimed. Do you personally feel like those kinds of rules are fair?

Yes, I think it's fair that the adoptable creator can do that. They don't even need to refund what the person paid for the adopt, they can just take it back.

Yes, but only if they actually refund the price paid for the adopt.

No, I personally don't feel this is a good rule at all.

I can understand their reasoning - they want to make sure you're using 'their' character - but I personally am awful with things like that and would never manage xD although if the buyer never uses them then they're the ones who lost out I guess, kinda like how when I sold adoptables I said people could change them as much as they want because if they change them beyond recognition, they'd have been as well creating their own character, but they paid me for that one so their loss xD if that made sense, I'm exhausted ;-;

Don't mind me, going through some of your old polls xD

Well, its a pretty bad rule but in the long run but if its in the rules, and you adopt you agree to those rules.

True, fair enough. I just don't think it's a good idea to impose such rules as it is very hard to actually follow up on your buyers!

Haha, can understand why some people choose to put the rule in place ^^; but it is a bad one none the less. 
And easy, you just contact them, or check their page XD

Yes, but I mean, you can't just force them to draw it.

Nah they cant ^^; but the person who adopts them should have read through the rules beforehand.

Of course, I just don't think highly of the rule itself :P

Mmmph, think of it more of the way as a contract :D. The terms of buying something are listed as a rule in the description.

i would NEVER have a rule like this. i put effort into a design, someone brought it, i got paid for my effort. its completely up to the buyer what to do with that character next. the only thing i have a problem with is when they resell for more than what they paid for. its really annoying tbh.

Bad rule. TERRIBLE, actually.
You get the rights when you purchase an adoptable. That's the whole point of buying it. Sellers need to back off; they got paid and now they no longer own the character.
If people can't stand what others will do with the character once they buy it, then don't sell in the first place. Yeah it's a shame when someone doesn't draw a character they bought but that's not the seller's business since they DON'T OWN IT ANYMORE.

Personally, I don't care what people do or don't do with adopts that they buy from me. They liked my adopt enough to buy it, they paid for it, its theirs now. That's satisifying enough for me. ^^

I do understand where the rule is comming from. 
If you sell a character you designed (and put effort in) I understand that you want it to be drawn.
But the person that adopted the character might just be a bit busy at the moment, that doesn't mean that they will never draw the character. In that case I don't think the rule is fair, I think it's too strict in general. 
I mean if I look at myself at the moment, I'm too busy to even finish personal art let alone an adoptable, while I do try to draw all of my characters once in a while.

Exactly, I can understand that people want others to draw their adopted characters, but there is no proper way to reinforce the rule.

Yeah, I agree.

That's not very fair at all :saddummy: One they pay, they can do whatever they want with it. xD

I dont even get the point of adoptables. Someone tried explaining it to me once, and when I questioned them about it they got all shitty and stopped talking to me lol.

Like, whats the benefit to the customer, just that they dont have to be creative?

Adoptables are something you're either into, or absolutely not. :XD:

Yeah, I guess so. I wonder how much money people make off of them
