You must join as a apprentice or warrior UNLESS you manage to adopt a pup through a pup tryout, however I strongly advise you make another character before trying out for a pup as beign a pup will be pretty boring.

If you mean the relationship key most people have on their applications nearly everyone uses the same relationship key and its for expressing how your character feels about other characters it has interected with either through their past or through roleplays. 

For refs you just draw them onto the application, we do not accept bases but we do accept commissioned work, say you cant draw so you have an artist draw your dog, you can use that art for your application but they have to be on the application sheets which are found in our gallery under "Featured"

And if you mean the application background of your drawing, you can find the background for each clan in our "featured" folder of our gallery. You can simply open it on your device and draw your dog on top of it! Just make sure to pick the right background :)

I have a couple questions about joining...
So it says to send a note. So if we are joining for the first time we just send a note? Or do we have to use the join group button? 
Also do we have to submit the application to our sta.sh or can we just upload it like normal? I prefer not to use sta.sh because I'm stuck on mobile and its harder to use on mobile.

So, I have 2 questions actually. 

1) Is joining still open?

2) I don't really have access to a computer full time, I mainly use my tablet, so would it be acceptable if my applications were a bit undersized? Ie. The dimension won't be exactly the same, or may have white bars which I can not edit out. I would still be able to post art for the group and literature, but the art would be limited to those set dimensions. This is a wrap-around way of asking if it would be okay? (This group looks really rad and I would like to join)

Hello!

First things first, yes! Joining is still open. If you look on the main page, under the group's picture, it will read either open or closed for new members. Right now, it reads "Open for new members!"

Second things second, Don't you tell me what you think I can be I don't see why not. I personally think you can do whatever you want with the art you publish here, as long as it isn't NSFW. the white borders might give the art a neat aesthetic in my opinion, though some others might not enjoy it as I do. After all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

in short, Both things you asked about are A-Ok with me!

Have a good day, don't drink bleach and wear your seatbelt!

I really would like to try, but I am just not understanding the way the names work. . . I never read the warrior series, And don't get me wrong, I see you have it very plainly listed here?
  • Before we start, please be aware that naming a character is similar to how characters in the Warrior cat series are named. Which means: 
    Puppy = Pup at the end of the name (age 0 to 6 months)
    Apprentice Paw (age six months till approx. 1 year)
    Warrior = Can be anything that is known to dogs. [Belly/Pelt/Fire/Rock/Sand/Bird/Prey/Antler ect.] 
    Alpha Star [Only the Alpha's have Star behind their name.}
I guess Im just...confused.
Would they have to be named warrior names upon joining the group? (Because we cannot join as pups? Those are closed I had read) So how do we join... I see the ages next to the names and that tosses me a little confuzzled. ; u ; ' I am sorry.
Does this mean we would have to name them for example;
WarriorFang? (as I want a dog that is upwards of 5 years of age.)
I am just not sure how to name my boy? I really would LOVE to join tho. . .

Ok! Hopefully I can help some.

A dog has two parts to their name. A prefix and a suffix. The Prefix stays the same through the dog's life, while the suffix changes with age.

When the dog is born, the mother gives him a name (usually based on what the dog looks like: like "Ice" for a white dog or "Raven" for a black dog, but the prefix can be a lot of different things such as "Flower" or "Hope" It is the mother's choice) That name is the dog's prefix. The suffix for new born dogs is -pup. So their names would be something like Icepup or Ravenpup, etc.

When a dog gets to be six to nine months old, he/she is apprenticed to an experienced warrior to begin training. The dog's suffix changes from -pup to -paw. So the dog's new name is Icepaw or Ravenpaw, etc. The dog then trains to protect and hunt for the clan.

When the apprentice shows they are experienced enough to become a full member of the clan, they will receive their full name from the alpha of their clan. A warrior name can be almost anything. The new suffix is usually chosen based on physical or personality characteristics of the dog. Such as Iceclaw (for a warrior who is good at fighting) or Ravenlight (For a warrior who is peaceful, calm, and intelligent). Here is a good list of name meanings in the warrior series: Warrior Cats Name Dictionary

So to answer your specific question, Warriorfang would not be a good name for the dog, because Warrior would not be a good prefix. Fang is a fine suffix though. I hope this helped. Please let me know if you have any more questions. <3

I do have one more question, As an adult dog, this would mean I could join as a warrior? Or would I be an apprentice to start out with?
I am going to make a Newfoundland x Vivsla mix? (more Newfie looking however.
I was leaning on darker colors, and leaning on the name
ThunderPup
ThunderPaw
to ThunderFang?

Is this information ok?
His name Thunder coming from the storm clouds that roared the night after he was born. . . . I feel like I am being such a burden tho. omfg.
It's so nice of you to help me like this

Nashi-Hime Featured By Owner May 31, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ok.

You can start as an apprentice OR a warrior. If you start as an adult dog, it would have a warrior rank.

Newfoundland/Vivsla/Newfie dog is fine.

Thunder wouldn't work as a prefix because it is the name of a clan (Sorry!) Banned prefixes include Thunder, River, Wind, and Shadow.

You aren't a burden. ^_^

Hey! I'm hoping to join, but I have two questions about the application sheet. =) Under the personality section, it says to describe why the character has the traits that it has. The OC that I'm making is a pup, and she was pretty much just born with the personality that she has, so should I just describe her personality traits...? And second, would my Username just be AmberWolfRunner?
