±± Old Custom Techniques ±±
Ok, because some people have alerted us to this I decided to explain some issues that are being noted regarding the Pre-New Rules and Post-New Rules regarding Custom Jutsu trading and Sharing.
-If your technique was traded before the new rules and you have proof of it (and by proof, I mean NB proof such as VMS and PMS) then you still keep its use.
-The 6 trading limit for each custom technique only affects things traded after the new rules were set. For example: Custom A was shared to 5 people before the new rules and 3 people after it. You can still teach it to 3 other people.
-If your custom was approved in the old CJ thread and has a note "Can only be used by me" (or any variation of it), you can still teach it to other people as in the old thread, no mention to that restriction was ever made. However, things approved in the new thread with such note must abide by it. Meaning that if you made a custom that states that can only be used by you, it cant be traded.
-You cannot, at the moment, drop customs. The only exception are Custom Weapons. You can, however, update them. To update a custom means to introduce minor corrections or aspects, adding minor abilities, removing or adding restrictions, editting rank or range, etc. Updating a custom isn't to be done to get a brand new custom but an updated version of the one approved that will substitute the original one. Only update if you are sure about it, because some things that were approvable in the past, aren't approvable now and you might get your customs lowered in their abilities. Once that is done and its approved, no turning back is possible.
-When you update a custom, its your job to inform the people whom you gave acess to that custom of its current, correct version. Using an outdated custom may mean the loss of a tournament, war, etc. It falls un your shoulders as your customs are your responsabilities.
-Customs can't be Co-created. Or, in a better sense, they can, but they belong to the person who submits them.
-I must remind members of the need to update your custom jutsu threads to fullfill the new rules. Don't forget to enumerate your customs and link their approval post if it was approved in the new CJ thread. If you have a doubt, check my own cj thread. I made it so that it might also help users to get an idea of how an index (list and name of customs with numbers) can be enough to organize your thread and make it up to date.
This will be added to the Custom Jutsu Users forum and i'll add some minor things in a bit.
