Hi everytoko!

:new:
Activities are also open!

Please remember when you purchase an uploaded tokota that their activity tracker does not automatically switch over to any tracker you may have set. You must set up your tracker on that tokota once it belongs to you!
-Islua


Design Central is now open! Thank you all so much for your patience while we cleared. We have hired some more DC staff, and are training even more, so your designs should be gotten to faster soon enough. Again, you'll be able to continue using a free Sikrinerk or Borga stone background with each submission to DC this month (Import Edits excluded - this is only for new genos). Be sure to submit any designs using these backgrounds to Soul Pool thread.

Also, a reminder to link your bank accounts when submitting CEs, PvPs, Soul Pool/Import Update threads in DC, and other areas in the group that require us to view or access your bank!~

Hi everyone!
Design Central is now hiring! We are looking to add 2-3 more people to our team to reduce wait times in DC. You will be completely trained on how to judge Tokota designs, as well as supported by a large admin team who will have your backs and tell you funny stories on our discord server. One of these new hires will also work in Design Den, designing genos and helping new players. If this sounds good to you, please check out our Admin Applications journal for how to apply!

Also, big congratulations to MemosNiceSide and their Tokota of the Month, Malzahar 16008!
If you know of another tokota worthy of recognition, please toss in a quick vote here! Votes have been pretty low in number lately, and we are only able to award a Tokota of the Month each month if enough people vote! It only takes a couple minutes, and you could make someone's day ~

~crae




04/23/2020

Hello all!

Apologies for the slight delay on the results, but the Outpost raffle has been rolled! :dummy:

Congratulations to our winners: SapphireSquire, SpraklingPurpleCat, AeolusAce, ChubbyCorgi!!

You've all been tagged in your geno proofs, but they'll also be in the Abandoned Pups thread over on the monthly breeding journal should you need to find them again. c:

Thank you to everyone who entered! :heart: Keep an eye out for our next round, and don't forget to work on those group goals in the meantime!

~ Koevr




Activities are open!
If comments are disabled we will not roll your artwork, and kick it from the group. This is regardless if the piece is correct as we allow forms to be posted in comments and any corrections can not be made if comments are disabled.

Shrine:
April (this month) is the last month to get your old Aippaq's Shrine/Tokoween correction comments rolled with the old shrine roller or for Tokoween loot. After April the only way to shrine your genos/imports will be via the new shrine system in the Shrine of the Seven Stones. If you have any old Aippaq's Shrine/Tokoween correction comments and want them rolled with the old roller, please note the Tokotas group with the correction comment for proof.

Tokotas Merch Store:
There is a big update to the Merch Store including Stickers and Posters. Stickers of LoRE Talismans are now available for purchase at $2 each. Meelanik and Sikrinerk Posters are also available for purchase at $16 or $25. Both have been bundled up so you can purchase the full sets at a 10% discount.

Shop Here -> shop.tokotna.com/

Donate an Aippaq:
Good Job Everyone! We’ve had 35 Aippaqs donated already, that's almost one full box.

Buy an Aippaq:
There are 44 Aippaqs left for sale! 33 in the US, 11 in the EU, and CAN is fresh out of Plushies. Anyone in Canada can still get themselves a Plushie but they’ll need to pay the full Shipping from the US.

LoRE Update:
Anyone who provided us an Email at the start of LoRE has been sent a code to get a free Talisman Sticker. If you gave us your email and didn’t get a code please check your spam and junk before noting us. You can check if we got your email by checking this list here -> docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d…

Please remember to link your Tokotna Profile in both CE's and PvP's.



4/13/2020

Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening Tokotna!

We have a very special update to go out today concerning Sikrinerk and Borga Stones which are detailed below. Plus a few other updates and a new Quest.

Sikrinerk Stone
  • Sikrinerk Stone Backgrounds can now be applied to all Tokotas including Akotas.
  • All Sikrinerk Stone Backgrounds must match the Tokotas correct HU, you cannot use the Submissive Background on Alpha Tokotas and so on.
  • We have a new background from preimpression of the Piaktok Geyser Field.
    • This Background is Available for use with April COVID Bonus!
  • Check Here for More Information on Import Backgrounds Guide



Borga Stone
  • All Borga Stone Backgrounds are becoming Single Backgrounds meaning they have no HU Levels. Submissive through Alpha all have the same Background with no updates.
  • Borga Stone Background can now be applied to all Tokotas including Standards, Tokis, and Dires.
  • All Borga Stone Backgrounds require a Dom Symbol or Tail Flip at Dominant or Alpha.
  • Submissive and Average Tokotas will require Tokotna to be checked to see the difference, but Admins are trained to do that so don’t worry.
  • We have a new background from Foxjot of Akycha’s Gate.
    • This Background is Available for use with April COVID Bonus!
  • Check Here for More Information on Import Backgrounds Guide



Free Backgrounds
  • Glacier, Spring Mountain, and Winter Mountain Backgrounds are now usable for All Tokotas.

DC Reminder
  • Due to how much this global pandemic sucks you can use Sikrinerk and Borga Stones for free in DC this month. Must be using one of your April DC slots for this benefit.
  • Decor Items Guide has been updated to include our most recent decor items, as well as clarifying some rules.

Tokotna Reminder
  • When a Tokota is transferred to you none of the links or information is reset, this includes Trackers, Personality, and Custom Notes. Please be mindful of the links on the forms when you get new Tokotas.


Notes for the Easter Egg Hunt go to TokoEvents!

Last but not least, the Quest has been updated until the end of April!

Spiritegg Away!

The Eastoko bunny has lost all his eggs and suspicion has fallen on Sivoganik. Sikrinerk has volunteered to lead Tokotas into Iluq Forest to help find the missing eggs.
Depict your Tokota searching for eggs with Sikrinerk or confronting Sivoganik, demanding he return the eggs.

Either spirit must be at least 50% visible in art work/mentioned at least three times in lit. At least one Easter egg must also be visible/eggs mentioned in lit.

Prize: Deluxe Easter Basket x 1

Lots of Love,
Jill, Dun, Crae, Furreon, and More~

:new:

Tribes is now open! There are a couple of small announcements and reminders I need to get to as well. c:

  • Successfully Bonding a Tokota can be redeemed for TP. It is worth 1 TP.
  • There is a new TP Redemption thread. This is so we could update the parent comment with new/relevant information to reduce confusion. If you need it, you can find a link to the old thread at the bottom of the Tribe cycling journall.
  • If you are a Founder or Trusted Tribemate and you are redeeming TP on behalf of one or more of your tribe members, you will need to link you Tribe's Tokotna Profile, not yours, in the form. Anywhere else, and you will be denied and will have to repost.
  • When redeeming TP (and you are not the Founder or a Trusted Tribemate redeeming for someone else in your tribe) you must link your Tokotna Profile in the form. Anywhere else, and you will be denied and will have to repost.

4/10/2020

The Chimera Tokotorial Video is finally up on our YouTube Channel. Sorry about the delays on that one YouTube logins were giving us hell but Talli has made a great resource for you.

Secondly, the Dire and Toki Scar Packs are almost finished and up in our Resources Folder! You can find them all Here! Don't forget that all Machine and Graveyard Genos go into DC Soul Pool Thread.

Finally, this is a friendly remember that the Help Chat in Discord is not to be used to poke admins to do something. Things that are posed as questions such as "When will you do this?" isn't a question and we are going to start enforcing that with Help Chat Bans for 48 hours. For anyone not doing that, then you can ignore this last part ;)

~Jill




I am here to announce the new  static wild design contest! The contests will take place every other month from now except in certain circumstances ;) Check it out! The deadline for this one is the 30th of April.

4/8/2020

Thanks to Sivoganik's deceptive nature, no-one noticed the Gaskin deadline approach until it had passed us by. So, after promising him an extra fearful mind to feed off of, he agreed to allow us to extend the deadline, but he didn't give us much time.
                                            :iconsivoganik: "You have until the clock reaches zero, then your tokens are worthlesssss"

Timer has been added to the  group's home page.

Hello there wonderful tokota people! As we are still running our faction beta factions were reset last night! If you have not done so already please be sure to register for your faction - or not and keep your neutral-ness!

And please have a look at the news below, there's some important stuff in there!

- The Admin Peeps




4/6/2020

Hey all, the following sections are now open for April! Rites of Fertility (AoAs), Bank, Breedings, Continuous Events/PvP/TvT, Design Central, Hierarchy Updates, Shrine, Faction Points, and Random Events. Long post ahead, but you'll want to read all of it!

Continuous Events:
  • If you are using a co-owned Tokota and collaborating your entry with the other co-owner, please specify which user is entering which Tokota so your prize and entry count are correct.
  • Starting this month, the form is updated to include a link to your bank. This is required for all entries!
  • Please give at least 72 hours after results are posted before noting the group regarding prizes/trophies. The exception is if the prize or trophy you received does not match the posted result.

Random Events:
  • Remember to link the import to your Tokota when using bonuses!

HU:
  • A small reminder, while submissive tokotas can skip their average update and head straight to dominance they still require that 75 HP to average. This means submissive tokotas need a total of 325 HP vs the 250 HP that a tokota born average would require to head to dominance.
  • We’ve noticed an uptick of trackers that do not have HP giving tokotas linked via tokotna, this is a reminder that these tokotas must be linked in your tracker or that bonus will not be counted towards the total HP of that tokota.
    • Your tribe should be linked somewhere in the tracker when using the Tribemate bonus. The tribemates tokota should also be linked like any other HP giving tokota. If just the tribe is linked, it will not count for the bonus. 
  • As a side note, HP is retroactive at every Hierarchy Update, so if you’ve left a tribe, an HP giving tokota has had a do-over, or you’ve purchased a new tokota with old art remember to remove all non applicable bonuses!
  • Dom symbols have been a lot of fun and a blessing for those of us that just can’t lift that tail or don’t want to! While they’re convenient, remember these symbols must follow some rules. 
    • As per hand paint rules, the dom symbol’s colors cannot match any markings that exist on the tokota. 
    • These symbols must be easily visible, while placement does not matter they cannot be too small. 
    • The symbol can resemble a brand but must follow these rules as well. 

Faction Points:
The last round ended with Knowledge Seekers taking first place! Congrats on your 306 points! Prestige Breeders came in second with 210 points, and Pack Leaders in third with 139 points! Token Brokers are fourth with 109 points, Wilderness Trackers in fifth with 44 points, and Lore Keepers last with 23 points. LK, you were very close!

The FP Raffle Winners of this round are:

3rd Place: Jumperlady Choice of 40 000 TT, or x15 HP Tokens

2nd Place: Fennarchy Choice of a Silver Tier Starter Slot, 40 000 TT, or x30 HP Tokens

1st Place: Kerbywolf Choice of Elemental Heart, Stone of Aippaq, a Gold Tier Starter Slot, or an Abandoned Pup (Normal Build)
Raffle winners, please note the group to have your prizes deposited to your bank!

Prestige Breeders, Pack Leaders and Knowledge Seekers all got to the Tier 5 prize! Congrats! Token Brokers got to Tier 4, Wilderness Trackers to Tier 1, and unfortunately Lore Keepers didn’t earn enough to unlock prize tiers! These items will be directly deposited to your bank. Please give us until April 10th, 11pm EST to get these items to you. If you didn't receive these prizes, please use ctrl+f on this list HERE to find your username. If your username is not on this list, you did not submit at least 3FP in the past month and will not receive prizes. (If you submitted with a main account AND a side account and are not on the list, please note the group too!)

Design Central:
  • We have a small clarification on the lion tail physical trait. The dark marking on the tail is not able to be collared - regardless of the mane type. The dark can be accents, minimum white or marked (with a blurred edge)!
  • A reminder about the Design Central free bonuses this month:
    • All designs posted in DC in April may use the Sikrinerk Stone & Borga Stone Backgrounds for Free!
      • Any design using these backgrounds must be posted in the Soul Pool Thread. They will count for Lioness totem
        • In the “Proof of Items” line, please state that you are using the “April Bonus Stone”
      • This is only applicable to new designs, and cannot be used in Import Updates.

Breeding:
  • Everyone gets a free Passionate II slot for the month of April, regardless of if a parent has the Passionate trait or not!


Kex and all the rest~




4/5/2020

Hello all!

Apologies for another news post so soon - please see the news posted earlier today just below this, as it's very important.

I bring you brief, exciting news from the Outpost! We have new genos up for grabs, so go check it out!! Also, don't forget our group goal is still in progress!

~ Koevr :heart:

***

Hello,
A small update to your graveyard and machine genos, the genos themselves may not be sold or traded for USD until they are uploaded. Anyone who has already sold their genotype is not in trouble, but we will not be allowing any further USD sales for the Gaskin genos.

Please give CE/PvP prizes at least 72 hours to be deposited into the bank before you note the group!

~Islua, Jill, Frey and team



4/1/2020

Good News Everyone! The Group is Open for April Fool’s....which is a joke and no we aren’t open yet. That’s the last joke you’ll find in this news post.

The group is closed for monthly clean up, but we’re sure you’ll enjoy the updates we have below for you!
  • Donate an Aippaq Plushie to Phoenix Children’s Hospital!
    • The Aippaq Plushies have spent the year sitting in Jill and Dun’s closet and not making trips around the world. The Tokotas Admin Team has decided that rather than let over 150 Plushies go to waste we’d rather see them in the hands of children who need them.
    • From April 1st to June 16th (our 6th Anniversary) there is a new option in the Tokota’s Merch Store, Donate an Aippaq, which allows you to pay for the donation of an Aippaq!
    • For the cost of the manufacturer's price ($20), you can donate an Aippaq to a child in need of a hug, at zero profit to the group.
    • As a thank you for your donation, you will receive x5 Sik Stones and an Aippaq Plushie Companion which may be applied to your Tokotas!
    • Check Here for more information on what Phoenix Children’s Hospital does with donated toys.
    • All 150 Aippaq's will still find their way to their new homes, but you can help them get there with your $20 donation.
    • Aippaq Plushies will continue to be available to purchase for yourself until June 16th, however after that they will no longer be in the store.
  • COVID SUCKS and we all have been feeling the effects of that. We decided to give a couple of small group bonuses in the month of April to help brighten your lockdowns.
    • All designs posted in DC in April may use the Sikrinerk Stone & Borga Stone Backgrounds for Free!
      • Any design using these backgrounds must be posted in the Soul Pool Thread and yes they count for your Lioness Totem!
        • In the “Proof of Items” line, please state that you are using the “April Bonus Stone”
      • This is only applicable to new designs, and cannot be used in Import Updates.
    • Everyone gets to use their Passionate II breeding slot without the need for a Passionate Tokota!
      • Please still mark your form as Passionate II to make it easy on the rollers when they check monthly totals.
  • Gaskin Threads are closed, check the journal for updates throughout the day!
    • Extra Boxes have a new Corrections Thread where you will have a limited time to fix your comments.
    • Placeholder comments found will be denied!
  • Updates
    • Aga’s Shrine is now open for the month of April! Be sure to check it out over on Tokotna~
    • Fishing has a new group goal! Check it out on the Tokotas dA frontpage!
    • Don’t forget we still have Outpost Goals running! Let’s work together to unlock more fun things for Akotas!
    • We’ve done a small clean up on the Silky Traits and for the Cheek Fluff for all manes. Updated files have been added to the folders!
  • New/Updated Defects!
    • There are two New Defects in the system! Frail and Lame which can be obtained as an Inbreeding or Double Merle Penalty.
    • Deaf, Blind, and Spinal Defects have also been rebalanced with these new defects so that all five give 1 Activity Penalty and 1 Competition Penalty.
    • Check out Breeding Your Tokota for more Information!
  • Cross Updates
    • Brown Crosses have been renamed to Bronze Cross to better fit the naming scheme.
    • No More Cross Confusion! The Aa/Tt have been pulled off of Crosses Genos and now is just in the Pheno. Roller Updates have been made and we are slowly updating all the current crosses (211 Tokotas) to match that!
    • If you haven’t already, now is the perfect time to adopt the habit of listing your hereditary mutations on the breeding form! Hereditary mutations will still be rolled for even if you don’t list them but it’s always better to list it as a reminder for the roller! Note that this does not include albino, chimerism or bloodmark as those are non-hereditary and listing them will get you sent to corrections.
  • Reminders
    • We have noticed an uptick in rule breaking and inappropriate behaviors.
      • Please remember to read the rules of events and discord before joining in.
      • Please double check the rules in a section if you are unsure you should be doing something. Like extra comments which have its own reminder below.
      • Please be kind to each other in threads and chats, we are all feeling the strain this year and want a place to hang out. Don’t make it harder on others if you don’t have to.
    • As always, exercise caution with USD Transactions.
      • Do not pay using Friends and Family on Paypal, this provides no buyer’s protection if things go awry.
      • Familiarize yourself with PayPal’s ToS to prevent yourself from getting in trouble or being taken advantage of.
    • Extraneous Breeding Comments
      • There has been a large increase this month in people adding extra comments to their breedings. Such as comments saying they are sending them to the shrine or just outright conversations in the threads. This is not allowed and we do issue warnings when you do this because it causes the journals to break sooner.
      • Please be considerate to everyone and do not post any extra comments in the breeding threads.

Quick question on the breedings for April- does getting access to our PII breeding slot mean we have a total of 3 breedings (not including splits)? 

oop just realized I should probably move this to FAQ or something~

If you donate a plushie are you supposed to put your email in? I accidentally put my phone number instead of my email.

Do all machine genos have to be submitted in the DC Soul Pool Thread, even if they don't have scar packs added to them? 
Alcestia's avatar
Yes, because they are required to have the special Graveyard bg found here: drive.google.com/drive/folders…

Ahh, ok, thanks for explaining, I didn't realise because it only said DC in the Gaskin Journal><

The link doesn’t work for me, it redirects to the journal itself. I don’t know if anyone else has the same problem?
Berkelis's avatar
