What are Claims?

Claims are for claiming rewards that are not from prompts! Examples include, but are not limited to; rewards for general art, rewards for raffle entries that were not automatically processed, old bank inventories that were not transferred to the site. 

See How To Submit Prompts to learn how to submit prompts!

NOTE: You may only claim rewards once. This includes rewards for general art and raffle entries as well as old comments from deviantART.



General Art Requirements

Q: How many pieces can I submit in one claim?
A: Up to 5! You can submit multiple claims at once but they can each contain a max of 5 pieces.

What you cannot claim TC on...

  • You cannot claim TC on things twice - so you can't claim on event or raffle art!
  • No TC is earned on the first drawing of a hatchling & its adult form since these are a part of the minimum requirements to get a hatchling/adult.
  • On-base art: you can claim the first art you've made on your own base but not any recolors on the same base. You can only claim TC on new drawings.You can't claim TC on art you've made on someone else's base.
  • Uncolored art

What you can claim TC on

  • Giftart, Commissioned art, or art trades that you drew!
  • Any art featuring atleast one ranebopet!

If your claim was denied, make sure you read the moderator comments. You may need to make edits to your artwork or reward claims, or you may have submitted something that was already claimed. If no rejection message was included, please contact the moderator via deviantART or Discord!
