Submitting Your Designs

How to Submit Your Design



1. Upload Your Design to Sta.sh

  • Design must be PNG format at original import size (2543 x 1936) for all new designs; Import Updates that keep the same design (paint/item/scar application, etc.) may have upload-size PNG file (1024 x 780).
  • Design must be in the sta.sh of the owner of the Tokota.
  • Do not delete your sta.sh file until your Tokota is uploaded. Do not delete designs that received corrections, as you’ll need the previous designs when submitting to corrections.

2. Fill Out the Import Information Template as the Description for the Sta.sh Image

  • Please only submit the most recent version, found here.
  • Do not fill out the Import Information Template as a comment on your sta.sh image.

3. Fill Out the Correct DC Form as a Comment on the Sta.sh File

  • Correct DC forms may be found at the top of each corresponding DC thread.
  • Failure to use the full form provided will result in a correction.
  • Full geno must include the number from the litter.
  • Base coat must be listed as either “from guide” or a specific Tokota from the lineage. If using a swatch from the Special Base Coats guide, please note that, and which Tokota in the lineage allowed you to use that special base coat.
  • Similarly, if using Balan shoulder marked, you must link to a specific Tokota from the lineage. To use the marking, the Tokota with the marking must be in the visible lineage.

4. Reply to the Correct DC Thread with a Link to Your Sta.sh

  • Failure to reply to the correct DC thread will result in being asked to repost to correct thread.
  • Only one design per comment.
  • Failure to fill out the Import Information Template and DC form before you submit your Tokota to the DC thread will result in an official group warning. This is considered using "placeholder comments" or saving a space in line, and is not acceptable.

DC Threads
Your design must be submitted to the correct thread, or else you will be asked to repost.

All Members

All Members thread is the standard thread for submitting designed Tokota genos.
  • Anyone may use this thread.
  • You cannot apply items to your Tokotas on this thread.

New Members

New Members thread is restricted to members submitting their first Tokota.
  • This thread may only be used once per user.
  • You may only submit your first Tokota to this thread. The Tokota does not have to be designed by the owner. You are disqualified from this thread if you have uploaded Tokotas or have submitted to any DC thread.
  • You cannot apply items to your Tokota on this thread. If you are applying items to your first Tokota, you must post to Soul Pool thread instead.

Soul Pool

Soul Pool thread is for submitting designed Tokota genos with items applied.
  • Anyone may use this thread.
  • Corrections will be sent to Soul Pool corrections rather than a DC admin’s corrections.
  • All items must be in your possession before being applied to a design. You cannot have multiple people "confirming" that admins can pull items from their bank -- the items must all have already been transferred and belong to the owner of the Tokota being submitted.
  • When applying Small or Large Items, you must list what is being added/changed on your Tokota in the DC form comment.
  • When applying HP tokens to a submissive geno (38 HP tokens must be used to reach average), the design's hierarchy background should be average. HP Tokens cannot be combined with Faction HP bonuses or any other forms of HP to reach average status in DC.
At Soul Pool, you may apply these items:
  • Small and Large Items
  • Hand Paint Dyes & Aippaq's Hand Paints
  • Scar Packs
  • Soul Pool Water (Physical Traits)
  • Elemental Hearts (Removal of Defects: Frail, Blind, Lame, Deaf, Spinal Defects)
  • PotA Tokens (Please see the Passage of the Alpha Journal for more information on the requirements and benefits of PotA Tokens.)
  • HP Tokens (38 Tokens to boost Tokota to Average Hierarchy)
  • Special Backgrounds, Frames, and special Hand Paints

Import Updates

Import Updates thread is for submitting changes to uploaded Tokotas.
  • Anyone may use this thread.
  • Unlike other threads, there is no monthly submission limit. Submissions to Import Updates will not count toward your monthly DC limit.
  • Corrections will be sent to Import Updates corrections rather than a DC admin’s corrections.
  • All items must be in your possession before being applied to a Tokota. You cannot have multiple people "confirming" that admins can pull items from their bank -- the items must all have already been transferred and belong to the owner of the Tokota being updated.
  • When applying Small or Large Items, you must list what is being added/changed on your Tokota in the DC form comment.
  • Note: If a Tokota was approved - and uploaded - with a missing marking or a marking that is not in the genotype, you do not have to update the design to match the genotype. If wanting to change the design, it would require a Do-Over Token.
At Soul Pool, you may apply these items:
Member Conduct
  • Please be respectful to the admins who review your designs. If you are confused about a correction, feel free to ask for clarification or help.
    • Give the admin one week to respond before noting the group.
  • Arguing with or insulting admins who comment on your design will not be tolerated. Keep in mind that we are a group of volunteers who devote our free time to helping run Tokotas - we do not want to send your designs to corrections.
  • Do not reply to other members' DC comments or comment on sta.sh files with design judgement or tips. Only DC admins should be correcting designs.
  • Do not "save your space in line" by submitting placeholder comments on DC threads, without filling out the full Import Information Template and DC form. This will earn you an official group warning.

Correction Clarifications / Second Opinions

While we do encourage members to ask for clarification on corrections, second opinions on every design is just not possible and it slows DC down. If you are unsure about a correction, please respond to the DC admin’s correction comment. We are making an effort going forward to have all of these questions answered in a timely manner. If your DC admin is not sure, they bring it up to the entire DC team and it is discussed, so it can still effectively get you multiple opinions.

If your DC admin does not respond to you after one week, you may note the Tokotas group and ask your question again there. Please do not note the group sooner than that; we do our best to get to your questions quickly, but sometimes either real life situations or discussion about the question will cause a few days’ wait.
