general faqs

If you have a question, please leave a comment in this post and we'll answer as quickly as we can!

Q: I think there's a problem with this deck! Can I donate better images for it?
A: Generally, there must be a sound reason for replacing images in a deck, which include: fanart, spoilers, incorrect character featured, image used in another deck, or "this picture is ACTUALLY TERRIBAD here's an improvement!" Thinking an image or deck is low-quality, or just plain disliking a deck does not call for replacement. Requests for image replacement are dealt with on a case-by-case basis, but whole decks will not be remade.

Q: When donating images for decks, do we use English or Japanese names?
A: Please use names that the English fandom is familiar with.

Q: When are referral rewards passed out?
A: Referral rewards are passed out with each deck release. These generally happen at the beginning of each month.

Q: What font is used in the cards and banners?
A: The font is 04b24. You can download it here if you don't have it.

Q: Are we allowed to trade crayons with other players?
A: Yes, you may trade crayons with other players, but crayon-only trades do not count towards sketchpad completion.

Q: Are we allowed to barter cards to other players for crayons? Does that count towards our Sketchpads?
A: Sure, you may trade cards to other players for crayons. The player trading cards marks the trades on their sketchpad, but the player trading crayons does not, as crayons have no value until they are exchanged for cards.

In general, you mark down however many cards you're trading away. Hopefully that'll cover everything, such as 2 cards --> 1 card trades as well. The person trading 2 cards marks down 2. The person trading 1 card marks down 1.

Q: Do you accept graphic donations with file extensions other than .gif?
A: No, all graphics donations must be .gif.
