When uploading the poses just link to where the pose is and also include a link to your name change on the name change topic found here to show that you used to go by that name and you should be good to go then. =)

I think they're meaning your markings ar copyrighted, which, they are to Gamefreak/ Nintendo (whoever owns Pokemon?) since it's of a character they created and own.

Im not on ART, but I believe 'inspired' markings are fine. There were pokemon inspired markings on wolves in the past. But, lets say, the ears looked like an umbreon, that wouldn't be okay. An ART member would need to clarify this though, because I may be incorrect.

yeah but they were allowed before for years. just one lately that rejected the ones they looked at. then last one looked at by another was ok cept it needed a stray pixel fixed and reuploaded. so I'll try again. I still come on wh with this look in front of everyone and staff as I have on and off for years. and my poses all look fox with glowing markings. the sets were sets i bought from kannon way back before she stopped selling them. yes long umbreon like ears would be getting to close to the copyright umbreon art for sure. I only had the markings on the fox ref possibly why ud and the others on here allowed them back in 2010 to the last i uploaded some in 2012 2014 ish.

What about Galagya's old premades that are even coloured to depict the pokemon they represent? She used to sell the greyscale and the coloured version. Both were accepted on WH.

Poses 52, 53, 57, 58 and 60.. Link here: viewtopic.php?p=902564#p902564" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

This topic says it all really. Basically, the character can be inspired by a copyright character but may not be the actual copyright character or too similar to the copyright character.

As of October 2011 such characters/poses were made unacceptable on wolfhome.

It's all case by case based on the pose and the way the character is depicted. As long as it doesn't look just like the copyright character you'll be fine. The image as your avatar is an example that would be fine.
