Hello, Sprouts 

The server is live meaning we have changed how art is uploaded to WG. Below is a tutorial on how to upload art. This section is for Avatar, Form 1, and Form 2. These changes will still be approved by a moderator but that will now be through the site. Changes to offical art still need to be made here: https://www.deviantart.com/bagbeans/journal/Approvals-and-Redemptions-NEW-820829969



A few people had questions about the size of the art shown on a Griffian's ML after the update. Those who right-click and choose View Image/Open Image in another Tab noticed that the image received remains the same size as what is displayed on the Masterlist itself, rather than the full-size as it does on DA.

That does not mean you cannot view the fullsize image! When you right-click and choose View Image/Open Image in another Tab you will get a URL like this: https://masterlist-album.s3.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/medium/Bagbean_1_official_1575726127.png To view the fullsize version, simply swap out the word "medium" in the URL to the word "original". You will be able to view it in the original size it was stored as. https://masterlist-album.s3.us-east-1.amazonaws.com/original/Bagbean_1_official_1575726127.png The images are displayed in a smaller format on the site because we are hosting them on a server now. The Masterlist is intended to be a resource for information more so than a full gallery portfolio like DA. Both sizes for the file are available using the above changes!

Hello, Sprouts!

Happy New Year! This is a quick update about the website. As we said before we went on break - we purchased a server to host Griffians official artwork and members avatar uploads. We also have built an interface for members to upload these images straight to WG rather than going through a comment. Members images will still need to be approved by a moderator but now it will all be done through the site.

This news update is to make all members aware that in the coming days WG will be down for a few hours on the day we make that conversion. Please do not be alarmed if WG is offline for multiple hours this week.

Hello Sprouts!

A quick update about our visual master list. The links are stable right now but we want to ensure our masterlist’s stability for the future. We will be moving images to a server setup rather than using DA links. We are doing this simply as a precaution,
when looking into a few reported broken image links reported by a sprout we found an issue with those url links that were saved prior to the WIX rework. Though all saved links post change to WIX in our system have had no issues reported as of this update you are reading, we have looked into longer-term image storage so that no matter if WIX or eclipse changes, we can ensure the storage of Masterlist Images. In order to do this, we have made the decision to purchase a dedicated server for all hosting of Masterlist Images. Though it was not our intention to ever become a hosting site when we started this journey.

Hello Sprouts!

Today was the day that Watering Wednesday as it is now was due to retire and switch to the Item Usage Journal fully. Please see previous news update regarding Time Activity updates here. Since there are just a few weeks left before our break, we have decided to keep normal Watering Wednesday open until the break while also allowing the new Watering system to take place on the Item Usage journal. So you will be able to get the free Waterings still for December 4th, 11th, and 18th while also being able to water via Item Usage at any time.

Hello Sprouts,

I am happy to announce that we have uploaded what we can, and the visual masterlist is LIVE. Please remember that if you encounter bugs or have ideas for quality-of-life changes you should post suggestions to our feedback box https://www.deviantart.com/comments/1/740028878/4586541946!

This is the base version of the Masterlist. As time goes on and we add more features, the masterlist will change to accommodate other automated areas.

What Can I Do Myself:
- Apply all cosmetics yourself except Dye Use (yes if you apply enough mutation fruits you get the status)
- Remove Relationships yourself
- Add Pets, Smols, and Chronopods to your Griffolk’s and Companions’ inventories
- Add Biographies (Missues of this box will result in bans or loss of ARPG privileges. No sexual themes, cursing, or harassment.)

What I need a Mod to do:
- Apply Trials
- Apply Dye Use
- Apply Tokens
- Apply base relationships
- Apply Sidekicks (Magic Familiar/Eather Beasts)
- Apply charged Chronopods to your time activities
- Transfer Characters

My Griffolk has no art?:
As we stated in the last news update, there is some art we do not own and the original artist has deleted it. There is nothing we can do about this. We have all of this art saved in an archive, but we do not have the right to just upload and host it somewhere due to DMCA. You as a player also cannot host others’ art without permission. This predominantly affects the parasplicers and cafflufles. Dye approval and Avatar approval moderators will have access to the original images, so players can still use Dyes, and draw avatars based on the originals. If players need the original image of any of these Griffians, please note the group and we will do our best to help you.

The best we can suggest to you is to draw an avatar of these Griffolk. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience.

My Griffolk has no art - I own a Love Item Griffian, CYO, Maze/Haze, or formerly Retired Species:
We do not own your art! You are required to host these images, not us! All Love Item Griffians, CYO, Maze/Haze, or formerly Retired Species art goes under avatar - meaning you need to provide us a stable DA link to these images and reply https://www.deviantart.com/comments/1/820829969/4795375253 to have them applied to your Griffian.

Diamons or former Mod Monsters
Diamons - formerly known as Mod Monsters - have gone through a lot of changes in their time in Griffia. They are now under the Facet species. Rather than upload the old looks, we wanted to leave it up to players. If you would like to apply your Diamons’ art to the ML it will need to be applied https://www.deviantart.com/comments/1/820829969/4795375253. It will go under the avatar section. 

Companions Layered with Griffolk
Some companions were drawn in images with Griffolk. The original GA will be drawing new official art for free for those players affected. They will be rebased as they were in the original art. This is not a free rebase, just a courtesy. They may be on a base, or may be hand drawn. It is up to the original artist.

CLARIFICATION - Themes
Previously we had allowed Bagbean themes to be duplicated when they had duplicate meanings. An example of this is Bloody Mary (Spooky Scary) and Bloody Mary (Drink). We are no longer allowing duplication in this way for the sake of our search function. Duplication across sub types was not allowed for the other species either so we are mirroring it for the Bagbean, mostly to prevent confusion. We intend to release a guide on Bagbean themes. We will not be changing any existing themes for players this is more of a PSA.
