The Random OC Gift Thread! (RGT)

This is a type of forum game where you gift a free character to the person who posted above you. Whether its a character you can't connect with or just can't get rid of, all are welcome here! This thread was originally pioneered by Fawnfetti ! If you see them, say hi!

At this time, we do not recommend tossing in characters you've invested a lot of money in as you are unlikely to get an OC in exchange of equivalent value, although you are more than welcome to be generous!

What if I don't like the character I receive?

If you don't like the character you receive, you can simply return it to the thread, or place it into the Freebie Bin.

If the character continues to get passed around in the Freebie Bin and/or the thread and you can't find anyone to trade it to, you may simply send it to Narrae or violentPrince . They will be given a new coat of paint and setup for future gifting.

I'd like to report a rule being broken!

Please fill out the form here: https://goo.gl/forms/DrCRtCmWAH9Dylap1 and submit it. A moderator will address your issue and message you privately shortly!

Rules

  1. Do not delete any images from the OC.
    • Deleting images from the OC, deleting the OC entirely, or deleting the OC and reuploading them is not allowed.
  2. Characters must have at least one full-body piece of art.
    • At this time, we do not put restrictions on the size of the reference images, but the bigger and clearer the better!
  3. No dollmaker / flash game / dolldivine / browser game designs are allowed.
    • Unless they have additional artwork. Anyone can go out and find the game and make the same design a hundred times over. They're not special enough!
  4. Don't send an OC to someone who's already had it before.
    • The transfer log is there for a reason! Please use it.
  5. Do not send OCs with messages like "sorry!" or otherwise talk negatively about the design.
    • It's just plain rude. It might not be a winner in your eyes, but it could be for someone else!
  6. Do not claim someone, then delete or hide your post just to get free characters.
    • Double posting happens, don't worry about that; you can hide those.
  7. Do not hand out free OCs with hateful / harmful content.
    • This includes visual swastikas, homophobic/transphobic/etc material, hate speech, racist imagery, DDLG/MDLB OCs, age-regressed characters, and pedophilia. Characters found with this imagery are to be reported to (and sent to) moderators so that they may be removed from thread circulation.
  8. Do not remove the original design credit from a character, or otherwise edit it to ???.
    • If any part of the character can be traced back to deviantART or another website, please do so.
  9. If you are designing characters on free or pay to use templates, you *must* credit the artist who drew them initially.
    • Put the link in the description of the image at least. Someone took the time to make that lineart for you to use for free; the least you can do is help others find it.
  10. Do not sell/trade characters from this thread for personal gain unless the transfer permissions of the character allow for it specifically.
    • If the character says 'gift only', don't try to make money off of it.
  11. Do not accept or ask for NSFW content if you are a minor.
    • Seriously. We grown-ups can get in trouble for this stuff. It might not seem like a big deal to you, but the repercussions can be serious and we'd rather avoid it entirely.
  12. Characters must be properly credited to be given away in this thread.
    • They cannot be listed as 'unknown' or '???' per TH's rules. (3/20/19)
  13. In that same vein... do not send NSFW or GORE content to people who do not want to receive it.
    • Most claims are pretty straightforward, but do yourself a favor and at least read them!
  14. Do not take more than 3 days to send someone an OC.
    • Failure to do so will result in an immediate banishment from the game until you have filled your previous claim.
  15. Please wait until 2 posts have passed to claim someone new.
    • If you have not filled your previous claim, do not post at all until you do so!
  16. Do not play this game if you have Quiet Mode enabled!
    • Trust me! You won't get anything and you'll be sad! It's for your own good!
  17. When claiming, you must indicate if you would like to receive a character with GORE or NSFW content.
    • Any epithet and variation of this is fine. Simply posting 'claim' and nothing else both assumes you did not read the rules and that you're alright with accepting literally anything. Which can be pretty bad.

FAQ

What if I have someone blocked, and they claimed me? (Or they're the person who posted above me?)

I would suggest moving them to a muted status instead of a full block. Muting another person allows you to opt-in to seeing their forum posts and still allows you to send and receive characters to/from them without the complexity of a block. If you do not wish to do so, we ask that you unblock them long enough to send a character to them, or for them to send a character to you. Being that this forum is open to any member of TH to play (within reason), we do our best to keep an open and welcoming environment, and encourage others to do the same. If you do not wish to unblock someone so that they can send you a character (or vice versa), we strongly suggest you find another forum game to play. If the person you have blocked was blocked because they have a bad attitude, you're more than welcome to ask for a moderator's assistance with the matter.

What do I do if I didn't get a character, and the person who claimed me is posting again in the thread?

First things first, send them a polite PM to find out if they forgot about you. Sometimes people sending transfers via mobile may not have their transfer go through. It's perfectly okay for you to inquire with them privately without submitting a report to one of the thread staff. If the person who claimed you does not respond within 12-18 hours, or continues to claim other people after you've sent them a message, you may submit a report form.

Why don't you allow Quiet Mode to be active when playing this game?

Quiet Mode as it functions currently does not allow a user to receive character transfers, private messages, or comments on their profile. Because of this, you can claim people and send them an OC, but they cannot send you one back. It's just really inconvenient if someone needs to get in touch.
