We now have over 2000 Creatures in The Creature Repository - the 2000th creature is Black Frank
, submitted by MiniSauron. Interestingly enough, Black Frank has a long TCR lineage, spliced from creatures from the "black" or "dark" tags
The CCSF 2009 breeding contest is underway! Check this page on the CCSF site
for more information. See also this post
for information and tips about submitting creatures for the CCSF :)
All creatures submitted for the ongoing CCSF celebrations can be found in the CCSF09 group here on TCR!
Finally, in light of some problems people have been having I bumped the file size of submitted creatures up to 250k. Any bigger than that and you probably need to ditch some pictures or something. ;)
Enjoy the CCSF! Post any questions or comments on this news post, or contact me on Creaturetopia
or Malkin on Creatures Caves
Hello, intrepid TCR'rs! I return to you, at the turn of the tide!
I also come back to discover that TCR has over 1300 creatures these days, with downloads nearing 9000!
For the longest time the news script on this site was broken and I was entirely too busy to try to hack my way back into it. As you can see, though, my latest attempt was successful, and I now have tidings of both great sadness and great joy.
For the news script was not the only thing broken. In fact, all emails being sent from this site over the last couple of months never made it out. So, no notifications about norns being added to the database, no lost password emails, no nothing. I am really sorry about this and I hope that is fixed for good.
On to the good news! First, it appears that TCR will play a role in the upcoming Creatures Community Spirit Festival. I pledge to to my best to stay on top of moderation, with the help of the awesome Malkin
. More about that later, along with a primer about the Group feature of this site that I never bothered to really post about on here.
Finally, those of you who may have forgotten their password may be relieved to discover that I have now made it easier to recover them on the lost password page
. You need only remember your username now, and have a vague recollection of the various accounts you might have registered with.
If you have completely forgotten your old email address or have other problems, I invite you to go post about them on this Creaturetopia forum thread
that I have made especially for this purpose.
Thanks, and keep an eye out for more future updates!
Here's a quick couple of tips if you want your Norns processed fast:
- Always have a description and tags that point out all the Norn's features, including breeds, colors, and other interesting things such as "grenorn", "breeder", etc. "strange" Norns will generally take longer to process because they need more checking.
- Have a good picture (in the case of C3/DS norns, this means taking one in-game before exporting)! Without a good picture we can't accept it, no matter how good your description is.
- Submit similar Norns close to each other. We can process batches of Norns quicker if the similar ones are together in the queue.
These things will help everything go faster and help your creatures get accepted more rapidly.
