I’d love to ask, if I took a photograph of my dog (for example), chucked it in photoshop to make it transparent, cleaned it up and sized it appropriately, can that be used as a pose?

I think it would genuinely depend on the quality!! It would be interesting to say the least.

not to be rude or anything but i really dont like that people can just upload photos with an outline. and i really dont like seeing it on chat. its just not visually appealing. i feel like the standards for what ART accepts on chat have fallen below what they should be, espcially in regards to the animated poses ive seen accepted

I'm so sorry that you feel this way (I removed the emoji from your post in case I need to edit mine :)) We're working on updating some of our protocols in regards to animated poses, but we also want people to have a good time. If you see a pose that was accepted and you feel like it's moving too quickly, was accepted on accident, or if you feel like it's genuinely not a great pose. Please please please don't hesitate to reach out to us. I'm always happy to bring things up for discussion, and we'd love to hear you all out on it.

Hey! Is there any update in regards to poses being photographs/photoshopped and outlined animals/people/etc. allowed? Because I am continuing to see these poses on chat.
nevermind, I reread what foxolotl posted - I disagree with it, but thanks for clarifying!
Personal opinion is that it does look tacky, kinda makes Wolfhome more similar to Worlize, and I don't really think it's the best thing to do. Other than that, I really like the animated poses being added!

Yes! This should be fine!

Also!!!
Hi Everyone! We've had some users give us some really, really good pointers. We've decided to remove a section of the plushie pose rules about copyrights for friends. We wanted to make sure our bases were covered, but that portion caused some confusion.

We are also implementing a speed cap on animated poses due to fast poses causing illness and possible seizures. Right now, we ask that if a user's pose is causing issue, please report it to an ART member, and we will be far more conscientious of this in the future. We'll also be putting together a do's and don't's guide for reference.

Next, we are revising our protocol on marking poses. In the past, we have disallowed poses that included urine and/or feces. We have decided to begin allowing such poses for use on chat for gag poses, however, if we find they are being abused, we may revoke that pose from use.

We are in the process of discussing protocols to allow small inanimate objects on chat and will hopefully have an update for everyone soon!

Finally, we are also revising our quality standards for some of the most recent concerns on low quality poses on chat. We encourage people to please send in PMs or contact us on chat with any concerns in these regards!! Again, we will post here with updates as soon as a decision has been reached.

Thank you all for your feedback, we truly appreciate it. Please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or concerns!

Can I quickly also suggest that if you reject a pose for not meeting your aesthetic standards that you be really specific as to why? I really dislike those generic rejection reasons because some of them are so vague, so I think if you’re going reject a pose please be really clear why it’s being rejected! ☺️

I totally agree with this and yes absolutely, I'd love to revise that rejection reason because I also think that it's pretty generic so thank you so much for bringing that up!!!

One more thing to add to this, regarding the previous questions about photo poses on chats. ART has decided for now to revoke all photo poses for now until we come to a decision regarding it, we hear ya'll loud and clear and totally understand your concerns!! We'll try to discuss this as quickly as possible and roll out some new rules regarding that.
In the meantime, if you all see a photo pose on chats, please let us know so we can revoke it for time being! Thank you guys so much for understanding <3

a possible compromise: allowing photo poses in private rooms (also possibly faster gifs); a new category of poses would definitely help with this but just marking faster gifs as gore might work? idk just Thinking out loud. because while some users might not like how they look, i do know a lot of others do really enjoy using them

edit: all the proposed changes sound really wonderful, tysm

I personally feel like using photo poses on chats kinda takes away from the 2d avatar aspect, I just wouldn't really like to see it? In public rooms anyway. But if the majority of the user base would like it then I'm all for it (:

I just...want to have the option to toggle animated poses off LMFAO. I find them severely distracting ^ ^;
