So you want to host a show revolving around or including Tokotas? You've come to the right place. Below you can find exactly how to do so, the prizes you can offer, and how to collect them from the group.



How do I get my show sanctioned?



It's very simple. Anyone can start and judge a show, you don't need any special permission for it either. All you need to do is make sure you have a journal with a clear description of classes, rules, and a deadline. Once your journal is up submit it here , where an admin will confirm your show with the list of prizes that the group will donate. Don't forget to submit it to the group's "Member held competitions" folder.

There are a few simple rules to this, however:
  • Donated prizes cannot be awarded to the owner of the competition, regardless of whether or not someone else judges it. (This means that if you are entering your own competition, you cannot receive any of the donated awards yourself.) If you are caught to be using a second account to bypass this or somehow cheat the system to award yourself free TT, you may receive severe consequences, including a possibility of banishment from the group.
  • You decide how the donated prizes are distributed, and you can supplement any donated prizes with your own TT or owned items, breedings, etc.
  • Prizes must be distributed evenly, except in the case of grand champion / reserve grand champion, etc. However, no single placing can receive more than 50% of all donated prizes.
  • To receive donations, the show must be inclusive toward everyone, rather than simply tribe or faction exclusive.
  • Tokotas will only donate prizes to class that allow tokotas to participate in them.




What prizes will the group donate?


For each separate class type (eg showjumping, dressage, hunting)

1,000 TT will be donated for each class to be distributed as the owner deems fit. (Only applies for up to 10 classes)

For judging with the inclusion of traits: (wild trait, partnership trait, honor trait, genetic traits, etc):

An extra 500 TT to each class, and either one "upgraded" tack item (i.e. sturdy rod, sturdy bow) per class, or two "basic" tack items (i.e. basic rod, basic bow) per class. (Only applies for up to 10 classes)

For judging with the inclusion of competition-related companions

An extra 500 TT to each class. (Only applies for up to 10 classes)

For every 5 entrants in each class*

A semi-custom, starter breeding, or common Non-Physical Traits (Only applies for up to 10 classes)

or every 25 entrants in each class*

A "special" semi-custom, starter breeding, or uncommon Non-Physical Traits (Only applies for up to 10 classes)

For judging with the group's basic judging rubric

500 TT extra will be donated for each class. (Only applies for up to 10 classes)
  • 1-40 RNG score
  • 1-40 unbiased effort score, this will be compared to your own gallery
  • 10+ for correct background
  • Optional: +5 for one training image of your Tokota and handler
  • Optional: +5 for a fullbody image of your Tokota
  • Optional: +5 for a fullbody image of your Tokota
  • Optional: +5 for a short story of at least 100 words (does not apply to literature entries)


For judging with the group's Tier System

An extra 500 TT to each class. (Only applies for up to 10 classes (not per tier))
  • Tier 1: Tokotas with tack, traits, and/or companions that equal less than 20 bonus points.
  • Tier 2: Tokotas with tack, traits, and/or companions that equal 20-50 bonus points.
  • Tier 3: Tokotas with tack, traits, and/or companions that equal more than 50 bonus points.


For allowing literature entries

500 TT extra will be donated for each class. (Only applies for up to 10 classes)


* If 1 class has 5 (or 25) entrants, then you will get one of the listed prizes donated. This is valid for up to 10 classes.



How Do Members Redeem Their Prizes?


Once your sanctioned show is judged and the prizes are ready to be handed out you will need to clearly list the winners of the class along with what they have won in a journal, st.ash, or comment as well as a link back to the original show journal and the admin approval comment of sanctioning. Once you have all of that listed, the members can simply post to the Redeem Items or Prizes From Events/Contests thread in the TT Bank.

Please keep in mind that any personal or member donated prizes (prizes not donated by the group) will need to be handed out by the host of the show or the member who donated them. The group will only be responsible for group donated items.

Very bottom, redeem items or prizes from events. I was trying to find the place to redeem my Tokoversary sprite and stumbled across it. xD

I didn't realize there was that many links otherwise I would of specified more. xD

I was wondering, would it be possible to apply this "For judging with the group's Tier System" to the event overall like CE has a sort of split between classes rather than within classes? 

So instead of 

"Class 1 - 3 tiers
Class 2 - 3 tiers
Clas 3 - 3 tiers"

This

"Class 1 - Tier 1
Class 2 - Tier 2
Class 3 - Tier 3"

And then get the TT once instead of thrice?

It's that it's already hard to get enough entries (5) for it to be succesful with three, that having 3 times that for each tier (so 9) would be very hard and might discourage participation as well (with the idea in mind that the classes won't be filled enough to even earn the prices or if not tiered because their tokos don't stack that well).

Yeah you'd only get the TT once overall, not per class, but that's do able

Just because I'm curious but what is a "special" semi custom?
tromacom's avatar
tromacomHobbyist General Artist
A special semi-custom would have the option of:

A non-dom tundra (Tt) or brown (Aa) base
OR an extra marking (total of 5)
OR the option of 1 uncommon marking (total of 4)

Another quick question, if there was to be a member monthly show, would it have to be re-submitted to get sanctioned every month?
tromacom's avatar
tromacomHobbyist General Artist
No, you can reuse the approval comment
Litleocub0722's avatar
Litleocub0722Hobbyist General Artist
I'm confused about something, why is this listed twice in the judging rubric? 

"Optional: +5 for a fullbody image of your Tokota"
Islua's avatar

I believe its because you can have up to two images that are bonuses.

I have a question about events, first, are we able to use art (Such as pre-made saddle/tack designs, ych) as a prizes or just Tokota items?
Also, I would like to know if we can do things other then the usual race/pulls/hunting and fishing things. I want to do something like pvp or combat style event (Such as Sheducats asian fighting) would that be aloud?
tromacom's avatar

You can use whatever you want as prizes, but the group will only donate a set kind of prizes.
As long as the competition works as a competition I don't see why you can't do a tournament style fighting thing. But bear in mind this section is a WIP right now so some things might change somewhat

I know, and thank you, I have my own prizes I wanted to give, just wanted to make sure.

With the new semi custom sales including short manes, will the semi custom prize be updated to include short manes?
tromacom's avatar
tromacomHobbyist General Artist
The prizes are going to be getting an overhaul yes :)

Pardon me, I had a question in regards to getting a recurring RNG show sanctioned. I take it wouldn't get any of the mentioned prizes, but the goal is more offering members an extra opportunity to get their win for the PoTA requirments. I asked before and the mod said it should be possible as it has been done before in tribes, but I'm not sure how to go about it? Just sent in a note?

For now I would send a note, the member-held shows are going to be getting an overhaul soon so the criteria may change
