1. Credit where credit is due
  1.  Puppillars as a species concept must be credited towards creator,  Provie (twogoblins at deviantart / Provie at Toyhouse). This means not claiming the concept for the species as your own, linking back to the group when possible, and/or crediting provie/twogoblins as a designer when posting designs on Toyhouse.
  2. All designs made by official artists, guest artists, and MYOs must credit the original artist, even if they have changed hands. They don’t have to be credited each picture you draw of them, but having the designer properly credited is common courtesy!
  3. All art recieved of Puppillars must be properly credited! If you did not draw it, please link back to the artist that made it, once again this is common courtesy.

2. Puppillars are a closed species
  1. Only official Puppillars can be used for group/website activities and registered on the masterlist
  2.  All official Puppillars must be approved by staff either via the creation of an adoptable by official/guest artists or an approved MYO
