Ah! Alright. I was worried it was going to be like other closed species. Sometimes they're just something like a dog with a food theme, and they're closed. Those types annoy me because if someone makes a food themed dog but hasn't heard of this closed species, the species creator can call them a copy cat and possibly get their art removed, which isn't nice.

Sorry for such a long comment, but it just needs to be said.

PS:
The food dog thing was just an example. It can apply to other things too.

i'm sorry for the short reply yesterday, i was busy at the time and didn't really feel like dealing with such a comment

but. frankly... mallowtails aren't just bears with marshmallow tails. when creating them, i took inspiration from both lions and bears (though they have unique anatomy, and aren't classified as a feline, nor a caniform. i have yet to write notes about their anatomy down, as i've been busy with commissions and life)

mallowtails actually aren't made of marshmallow, they have multiple tails that are swirled together to be kept tidy... they're very personal to me - the first design was actually meant to be my fursona. i decided to make them into a species because i felt it could be fun and interesting, though i suppose they aren't very interesting at this point - which is fine.

i decided to make them free to make because i love seeing people create, that was the whole point of starting the group - to inspire people to draw. sadly, i haven't had time or the wherewithal to make the group something to inspire, so it's a bit of a dead idea at the moment (and for the forseeable future).

i'm not bothering anyone, or claiming that someone has stolen my ideas. and frankly, i felt that my idea was a bit more original than 'dogs with food themes'. but thank you for your comment.

oh nonono, I'm ever so sorry if i've made you angry or upset, i hadn't realised how important they are to you. I've just heard of way too many cases where people make simple/unoriginal designs, call them a closed species, and start trouble with anyone who draws something similar. 

I was under the impression you were one of these people, hence my slightly bitter(?) attitude towards you. I'm sorry.
I shouldn't have said anything. They're actually a very nice looking species.

And again, the food dogs thing was just an example. not really related, but it was used as a way to explain my point, i'm sorry. 
You shoudln't have to deal with me. if you can, feel free to hide my comments. I was aggressive with no reason, i apologise.

hey, it's alright. i honestly can't stand it when closed species creators get uppity and send people to attack kids who made a character that's similar(etc). it's annoying and just shitty... so i get u

no hard feelings :3 also i can hide the comments if u want, it's up to you!!

Make whatever you want. Draw whatever you want, who cares. You don't have to get permission from Unisoft if you want to make a character who is a hooded assassin. Just do whatever, screw anyone who says otherwise.
