JellHead Character

Q: Can my JellHead character play in a different universe/world?
Yes, JellHeads are an open world / universe species, so their lore and species can exist in any world or universe!
If you have a fantasy world for example then yes sure! JellHeads can exist there too, if you want to!

Q: Can my JellHead character wear clothes/accessoiry?
Yes, as long as it follows the species rules, it is free to wear anything!

Q: How can I get a JellHead?
You can get them through the welcoming gift in the Gift shop,
By buying MYO Slots in the shop
or through raffles and adopts created by staff and JellDesigners/Guest Artists!

Q: Can I void my JellHead? What would happen to its JellBean Item?
Yes, you can request to void your JellHead! They will stay on the Masterlist and can only be unvoided up to 3 times using the fitting MYO Core.
The JellBean Item will stay in the game, whether the JellHead is voided or not. Removing the JellBean would expense Users who owned that JellBean.
Turning that JellBean into an Unknown JellBean is also not possibly, as it could be exploited and makes no sense, canon wise.

Q: I want to sell my JellHead. It comes with extra valued art and is worth more than the displayed Sale Value on the Masterlist! Can you update it?
Q1: I want to sell my JellHead for more than its Sale Value.
The Sale Value on every JellHeads Masterlist entry shows it's base value.
Extra Art commissions of your JellHead and monetary costs are not included, and will not be included. = They will not be updated!
The Base Value only acts as a reference for users, especially those who bought adopts to avoid people reselling adops with no additional art for higher prices.
You are free to resell your JellHead for higher than its Sale Value, if it comes with extra art.
MYOs included! 

Q: Can my JellHeads host species be based on an original species (Closed / Open Species)?
No! As much as it would be a canon/lore possible thing, it currently is not supported in this group!
But it is a future goal to collab with other Original specie to allow JellHeads with original species hosts!
A system for that is in planning...

Q: Can people who don't have an account here own JellHeads?
Yes they can! But due to how the Masterlist works, they need to have at least one of the following social media to work as the Owner URL: DeviantArt | Twitter | Tumblr
Other websites are currently not supported.

Q: Can I co-own my JellHead with someone else?
Yes you can! But there will always be one main owner with all rights to the JellHead. How you co-own your JellHead is fully up to you.
You can set max 1 / one visual Co-Owner to your JellHead, where the JellHead would only appear visually in the Co-Owners Character Section.
Any more Co-Owners are not recognised by the site, but can be done privatly, if wished.
Incase of rewards that go towards a JellHeads owner, it will only go towards the main Owner.

To set a visual Co-Owner on your JellHead, submit a claim and add both character and user you want to co-own with!
A staff member will edit the Co-Owner in.

Q: I found this JellHead, is this a real JellHead?
As long as they are registered to the masterlist, they are real/part of this ARPG!
If they are not registered to the masterlist, they may be fake or a one-off and are not related to the ARPG!
Those can not be used for on-site activities and gain no rewards!

Masterlist

Q: I found a character that looks like a JellHead. But it is not! >:(
Please do not harass or attack anyone who creates Characters that have similiarities as JellHeads! Those characters don't cause any harm to this group! 
There have been cases of Designs with Jell-like Heads, that were no problem to the group.
If you find Designs, that are clearly posing as "official" JellHead characters (like description etc), you can ask them to stop. But also don't stress yourself and cut contact with them if needed!

 

Designs & Traits

MYO Creation Guide

Q: Can I turn my own character into a JellHead?
Yes, you can, as long as you also have the permission from the original designer of your character!
Whether your character is a shapeshifter or has magic skills, it is preferred to keep their JellHead-Form abilities canon to JellHead anatomy/lore.
Even if your character can originally talk, as a JellHead they would lose that ability of speech.

Q: Can I redesign my JellHead?
Yes, but ony Artificial JellHeads, due to their lore!
They can be redesigned using special items and have to stay recognizable from their original design!

Q: Can my friend/someone else help me design my MYO?
Yes you can, you just need to remember to credit them when submitting your MYO!

Q: Am I allowed to create/offer Custom JellHead designs using my/others MYO?
 Same as above! But please call them "Custom MYO Design" or "MYO Customs" instead of Customs when offering/advertising them, to avoid confusion with official MYOs!
Also stathe whether or not you are supplies the MYOs/Items or not!
Only some staff can offer real custom designs!

Q: Can I share designs before approval or unofficial designs?
As long as you tag it as unofficial and share it on the discord server or with friends, it is ok!
Just don't share them on public sharing sites like DeviantArt, Twitter or Instagram to avoid confusion!

 

Prompts & Claims

Q: Can we collab for prompts/claims?
Collabs are not officially recognised! So if you do a collab with another artist, all rewards will only go to the artist that has submitted the claim.
It will be up to you on how you split the rewards.

 

Shards

Q: What are Shards?
It's our site currency! You can use it to buy items in the shops, that use Shards!

Misc.

Q: Can I create non-canon art of my JellHead, like AUs etc?

Q: I found a bug, where can I report it?
