RULE INDEX

 

Grem IP/Rights

Any use of “Grem IP” encompasses all Grem content, Palleth content, and any other content created or authorized by MrGremble for the GremCorps group.


► Please read our rules carefully as you are agreeing to them the moment you gain any of my closed species into your possession.

 

► Grem2 are a closed species and are not authorized to be created freely without expressed permission from MrGremble

 

► MrGremble retains the sole right to authorize the minting of NFTs of any work involving their IP. (Neither I nor any Gremcorp staff will EVER mint NFTs). By participating in this group, you agree that you will not mint NFTs involving Mrgremble's IP (This includes any and all media created under the Grem IP, regardless of the original artist). Failure to adhere to this will result in immediate blacklisting from the group, the community, and its resources.


► You are not permitted to co-own with any adoptables under the Grem IP.

 

► You are not permitted to make a species with any adoptable under the Grem IP.


► This group is strictly PG 13+. Do not join if you are any younger than the required age bracket.

 

► AU versions of grems are restricted to non-closed-species only. You MAY NOT have AU versions of your grem as other closed species (unless it is a closed species owned by you, in which case you may only retain the AU version so long as you still own the grem).


All AU versions of a grem are forfeited and nullified upon ownership transfer of that grem to another user.

 for more information about AU Rules & Explanation, click here!

► By obtaining an adoptable under the Grem IP, you are purchasing only a partial right to the Grem IP. MrGremble retains all rights over their work, which includes but is not limited to the right to use works created by MrGremble or the business as a sample for sales/self-promotion. 


► Neither Mrgremble nor the GremcorpsARPG team members will have the right to resell a person’s artwork or design created from a MYO slot. However, if MrGremble or other designers directed by them (admin/guest artist/etc) were to come into possession of your design via trade/gift/sale/etc, we reserve the right to edit/redesign as we see fit for non-profit redistribution within the group (including free raffles, free adoptions, trades, event prizes, etc). Repurposed MYO designs WILL NOT EVER be sold for profit unless given express permission by the original artist/designer.  

 

► Users who come into possession of any design within Mrgremble's closed species may edit that design within the limitations of the redesign rules provided here. This includes any MYO designs created by other users. The original creator of a MYO character may not dictate what happens to the design once it has left their possession. 

 

►Designs CAN be edited per their own individual species redesign rules; however, please do not directly edit or trace over original art (that you yourself did not create) without receiving approval from the original artist first.

 

► You have the right to resell any adoptable purchased by you under the Grem IP for the amount that you paid, shown in that character’s page. Art add-ons may not be used to add to the monetary value of a Grem or adoptable under the Grem IP.



Gremcorps Group

 

► Please be courteous and professional when interacting with any team member, this includes any user with a rank above members. Understand that team member decisions are final and not open for debate. Any sort of harassment or rude behavior made towards them or other users will not be tolerated and if this behavior continues after being given a warning will result in you being removed/banned from the site with the consequences that comes with it.

 

► Please keep controversial subject matters out of the group. Topics such as war, religion, politics, and other such subjects can be sensitive and we request those topics are kept private. This should also apply to any character/lore development written in group spaces (gremcorps website, discord, DA group, etc).

 

► Members agree that they will not solicit ANYONE for their grems, grem Myos, other species,  pets, mounts, companions, Event tokens, or other items specific to the Grem Corp Group, as solicitation is not permitted. If someone does solicit you, please contact us through Reports.

 

► Please keep all event, prompt and gallery submissions at a PG-13 level. Art that is overtly sexual, graphically violent, or containing depictions of death, gore, or controversial subject matters may be declined by the group. This is at the discretion of the admins and is done to maintain a comfortable environment for all members. While users are welcome to draw their character however they wish in private, please keep art appropriate and tasteful when submitting to this site.

 

► Art theft, Grem rip-offs, and similar situations should be brought to the attention of an admin, please contact us through reports with your proof and an admin will assess the situation/deal with it accordingly. Do not harass, publicly call out, or otherwise mini-mod or take matters into your own hands, as doing so may be considered harassment and will not be tolerated.

 

► Harassment/deliberate defamation is NOT permitted within this group in any way. This

includes harassment of users for grem/character ownership as well as demeaning/vague posts about other users or the group itself. Please live and let live within our community. If a member is being harassed by another user, please contact us through reports with your proof and we will look into it.

 

► Creating or knowingly purchasing designs that are intentionally ripped-off of grems or advertising as “off-brand” grems may result in a permanent ban and blacklist from GremCorps. 

 

Conduct 

This area applies to all websites where Palleth content is hosted (DA,GremcorpsARPG, Discord, Etc). Please apply these rules to these websites as you go through. 



► Please work to be respectful with community members in conversational spaces. Work to the best of your ability to avoid and/ or drop controversial topics or heated debate. If a topic you are not okay with is being talked about in a public space then privately contact an admin and we will deal with it accordingly. 

 

► If an individual decides to continue an unhealthy conversation after it has been requested that the topic be dropped, or mobbing and bullying is being made apparent, then we as team members will step in and provide timeout periods (or kicks if necessary). Warnings will also be given accordingly.

► Rude behavior or harassment towards other users, keepers, or admins or any other ranked user will not be tolerated. If we have decided that your behavior is not suitable after providing warnings, then you will be removed from any social space we provide. Any further misbehavior will result in a blacklist/ban from this site.


► Do not ask about or publicly speculate on disciplinary actions between admins and other members. These matters are private and discussing the business of other users will be seen as inciting drama.

 

When receiving a warning or strike, do not assume or use the consequences received (or not received) by other members to justify your actions or contest your own warning/strike.

Content 



► Our group strives to maintain a pg-13 space, as such any art, journals, designs, or masterlist submissions that contain content that violates our submission rules may be rejected or sent back for edits. 

 

   - Art that is overtly sexual, graphically violent, or containing depictions of death, gore, or controversial subject matters may be declined by the group.

 

  - Depictions of weapons are allowed so long as they are not portrayed in a graphic manner or in active use (ex: your grem can have a knife, the knife should not be bloody/gorey, or be depicted in use in a way that would cause harm.) 

 

  - Weapons must not be so big that they obscure the design of the character. 

 

  -  Weapons on prosthetics and weapon body modifications are disallowed entirely for masterlist entries.

 

  - Depictions of alcohol drinking and nicotine smoking are okay in moderation so long as it is not extreme or abusive in nature. Approval of submissions of this type may be subject to admin discretion. (For submissions of this nature within our discord server, please always appropriately spoiler and tag them for content.)

 

  - Portrayals of any harder or more controversial drug use are disallowed within the group entirely. (Including marijuana, considering its illegality in some places, and higher community discomfort.)



MYO Rules

 

► MYO slots may only be used one time. No exceptions. Once a MYO slot is used, it becomes the character's ID tag. 

 

► MYO slots may be sold for the price paid by the current owner. They may not be traded (unless otherwise stated in the masterlist description). Their resale may also not be used as a trade condition/addon. Attempting to circumvent this rule will be considered loopholing and may result in a warning (this includes attempting to pre-arrange a trade where the recipient dictates the design for the MYO so that it can be traded to them after it's been created)

 

► MYO designs may NOT be heavily inspired or copied from copyrighted characters, real people, or commercial IPs.

 

You are allowed to take a one off design and put it on a grem/character, but the design must have the permission of the original creator to allow this to happen. At this point, the design will be locked onto the slot itself and voided as that design. If you decide you want to use the one off design again, then you’re required to go through the redesigning process to make the grem/character have no visual resemblance to the original design. 

 

► MYO designs will NOT be considered official until they are approved and uploaded to the Masterlist. Designs MUST be in the Masterlist and up-to-date in order to be used for events, traded/resold/gifted.

► Designer/ Redesigner rules for customers and creators, go here.

► MYO grems will incur a 30 day trade cooldown period, beginning at the time of official design approval. The grem may not be traded, gifted, or sold until that 30 days has passed.


Redesigning

 

► Redesign information can be found here.

 

►Grem designs CAN be edited per our redesign rules; however, please do not directly edit original art (that you yourself did not create) without receiving approval from the original artist first.



Sale/Trade 

 

► You must notify the masterlist of all trades/sales/transfers of ownership. Repeated intentional neglect of this rule will result in strikes and further disciplinary action. 

 

► Characters must be registered under the current owner on the Masterlist in order to be eligible for sale/trade/redesign.

 

► Backing out of an auction bid or sale claim can result in being blacklisted from future participation in sales. Please bid/claim responsibly.

 

► Characters that were purchased may only be sold for equal or less than the price shown in the description of its masterlist entry. If a character is sold for less than its original purchase price, the sale value will be updated to reflect the price paid. 

 

Once a character is traded, gifted, or otherwise exchanged in a manner other than resale, that character's sale value is forfeit, and it may no longer be sold by future owners. The character’s masterlist info will be updated to reflect this. 


► Once all parties involved in a trade have agreed to the trade, it should be considered final. You may not back out of that trade without the agreement of all parties. Please be certain of your trade before agreeing, as repeatedly backing out of trades with other members may result in disciplinary action against your account.

 

Once the trade has been agreed upon, it must be followed through with to be made official. All involved parties must confirm the trade.

► When creating a journal to sell or trade your character, you must provide the masterlist link to show that your ownership of that character is official. 

 

► Characters may not be traded for non-crafted/non-art items, future or unspecified autobuy vouchers/offers, or fulfillment of amazon wishlists, gift cards, etc. Characters may however be traded for art or handmade items if the owner so chooses, so long as the voucher rules and guidelines in the voucher section below are followed. This includes digital and traditional art, such as paintings, custom plushes, adoptables, sculptures, fursuit pieces, and other custom or commissioned handmade media.

 

--> Items (adopts/art/crafted pieces) which have no set autobuy/buyout price would fall under the "unspecified autobuy" category and as such would not be permitted. Any and all items will need to have an autobuy/buyout price that is specified by the seller in order to be approved for a voucher of that amount.

 

► Additional art will not add monetary value to a grem/character. The only exception to this rule is for users choosing to commission an artist to design their MYO slot. In this case only (with permission from the artist), you may add the cost of that design commission to the total value of your grem. Example: A person who purchased a $40 MYO slot and then purchased a $20 MYO design commission could sell their grem for a total of $60.

 

► Any trade involving commissions/art services should be completed by all parties before the character is transferred. If you choose to transfer ownership of your character before the art being traded is completed, you are accepting the risk of that art or service never being finished, as once your character has been transferred, that trade is final. We will not step in to undo that trade.

 

Journals on Deviantart

 

► Trading journals submitted to GremCorps on Deviantart must contain at least one grem up for trade. "Seeking" journals will not be accepted into the group or discord. We will also not accept journals containing grems listed as "Tentative" or "Entertaining", so please only post grems you truly wish to trade. There is no obligation to accept a trade you are not interested in, but we ask that you not post grems you have no real intention of trading.

 

► You must wait for a period of 2 weeks after submitting a YCH or trade journal to the group before resubmitting. ”Bumping” your trading journal by deleting it or removing it from the group and resubmitting before that 14 day period has passed is not permitted and will be declined.

 

► When it comes to commission-related journals on DA, we only allow grem-related commission journals into this group. A journal offering general commissions in which the artist is merely willing to draw grems but does not provide examples is equally not acceptable and will be declined from our group. 

 

Vouchers

 

► Vouchers are primarily a trade type exchange where a specified item or art service is traded in exchange for a grem/character. Vouchers are in no way monetarily added to the character’s worth as this is considered a trade and not a sale.

 

► Any character has the ability to be vouchered, but because this is considered a trade, any character with a resale value listed on the masterlist will lose that value and no longer be resellable.

 

Visual Guide



Acceptable Vouchers:

 

✔️ Specified art/commissions from a single specified artist. (Please note that by offering art from another artist, you are accepting the risk of that artist not completing the art. In order for your trade to be honored, all agreed-upon art must be completed, and we will not be responsible if that artist does not come through)

 

✔️ Crafted goods such as fursuit pieces/sculptures/plushes. (Handmade items created by independent artists, this includes customs and pre-made merchandise)

 

✔️ Specified designs/adoptables created by independent artists that are currently up for sale/swap/trade at the time of the agreement (meaning you may not ask for a vague voucher for an unspecified future adopt)

*All vouchers require approval from Gremcorps before being posted into the group/Discord. You may choose to keep the item private to the public, as long as the team has seen and approved the item or service beforehand. 

 

Unacceptable Vouchers:

 

❌ Art/voucher slavery 

 

❌ Unspecified art/crafted goods etc that are vague or are not currently available, such as saying you want some sort of design autobuy in the future, or some sort of fursuit piece but you aren't sure who you want it from or when their commissions will be available etc. 

 

❌ Physical goods that are not artwork or crafted pieces (things from amazon wishlists/ebay etc.)

 

❌ Indirect Third Party Payments  (EG: Sending money to someone other than the intended artist.)



Partial Payments:

 

✔️ What is allowed: Asking for vouchers that are less than the entire amount of the thing you are vouchering for.

 

(Ex: You want to voucher for the purchase of a new commission or adoptable that is being sold for $500. You could voucher your grem in exchange for someone paying a partial amount (let's say $300) of that total, and then pay the remaining amount ($200) on your own or through other means. 

 

Note that when vouchering for a partial-payment, you fully relinquish ownership of your grem upon agreement/exchange. If you fail to complete your payment, or the artist you commissioned fails to complete your art, you will not receive your grem back. By agreeing to the exchange, you accept these risks. 

 

❌ What is NOT allowed: Asking for vouchers to pay off something you have already purchased.

(Ex: Vouchering your grem to pay off an old unpaid-for commission/character/Item.)



►  During the voucher approval process, you are required to use the form provided!! Do not create vouchers outside of the site without a required voucher approval, this process is mandatory in order for the voucher to be deemed safe for the use of other users. If a user fails to use our voucher template as well as voucher outside of official approval, then it is deemed unsafe for users and should be reported!

 

► Pulling out of a voucher or otherwise not following the approved voucher can result in a temporary ban or blacklist from the group. (this applies to all parties

involved in a voucher agreement)

 

Voiding Grems


Here are our voiding rules, please make sure you have read them all the way through.



Website

 

► Exploitation of glitches or loopholes is not permitted. The discovery of a new bug should be reported immediately so that the team may take steps to correct the issue.

 

► The use of bots, scripts, auto-refreshers, or third party software designed to play the game for you in any way is not permitted.

 

► The use of bots, scripts, or third party software that shortcut or alter site functions to run or appear in ways that are not intended by site design is not permitted.

 

► All items, virtual currency, companions, and rewards are considered a limited license for you to use while your account is open. Due to the limitations of this license in the event that your account is terminated or banned the entire inventory and virtual currency bank associated with your account is considered forfeit and you are not liable to receive compensation for any losses.

► If you close your account or are banned from using our service, we may still display any "MYOs", companion designs, character designs , artwork, and text submitted by you during the time you were using this service.

Being Blacklisted/Banned

 

Being "blacklisted" or "banned" will revoke certain privileges from the offending user relating to sales, Gremcorps/Palleth events, and related species.

 

Not all possible punishments will be given in each case. All bans are handled on a case-by-case basis and the action taken will directly relate to the ban reason. 

 

If another user is violating any terms, please contact us through reports

 

► Designs will NOT be revoked in the case of a ban if that design has been fully paid for and/or is rightfully owned by the user via trade/gift/voucher/etc. A design can only be revoked if it was not paid for, such as in the event of a chargeback or lack of upholding a trade.

► All users are given warnings based on a 3 strike system. User’s who have received 3 strikes in total are subject to official ban from the Gremcorps group and blacklisted from any future adopts/events/services the group may offer. Not all rule breaking behavior is considered equal, and some punishments may award more or less strikes depending on the severity of the infraction.

►A user who is blacklisted/banned from Gremcorps will be unable to join the DA Gremcorps group, discord, and arpg site and may not utilize any of the services these features offer.
  → these services include but are not limited to:
- Posting within any of these locations. (Including art and advertisement posts.)

- Participating in any quests/prompts/events hosted by the Gremcorps group, including free rewards and raffles.

► Users who participate in scamming or abuse of Gremcorps services may see certain privileges relating to those services revoked, and depending on the severity of the abuse, strikes may be issued to the offending user.
