Painting & Engraving Guidelines

Painting

  • Filling custom paint cans and painting paintable items will always be done in the Custom Paint Room. Caretakers can do so in the MG Balcony if necessary
  • Please see the engraving guidelines for naming custom paint cans
  • When a custom paint can is empty, you must buy a new empty custom paint can for you to transfer the code to (ie the original can cannot be refilled)
  • There are one-time custom paintable items that are denoted with a “(P)” on the end. When painting these items, the “(P)” will be removed off the end to denote that it has been painted. The rest of the name will not be altered

Engraving

  •  Engraving items will always be done in the Custom Paint Room by Advisors. Caretakers will engrave on the MetroGear Balcony.
  • Engravable items are denoted with an “(E)” on the end. This “(E)” is removed when engraving
  • If a date is desired on the item, you must use the following format “10/5/15” (day and month can be US or International). The format used on prizes (’15) cannot be engraved on an item
  • Staff titles (ie World Director, Caretaker, Advisor) cannot be engraved on items, as well as names of staff tools (Fiddle, Builder, Amulet, Vendroid, etc).
  • You can engrave your name or someone elses name on an item, as long as it is not being used in a derogatory manner. This is subjective and will be up to the Advisor or Caretaker on duty to decide. If you have to question whether it’ll be acceptable, it probably isn’t.
  • We may not engrave trademarked or copyrighted real world names (i.e. no Mickey Mouse or Coke). We also cannot engrave celebrity names. If you aren’t sure, Google!
  • No overly vulgar or obscene words or phrases can be engraved. We are a community of adults, but use your common sense as to how far it can go
