      agreed
      Fan arts for wls is 100% illegal.
      The owners of the site can just rephrase the wording of it and it could sound like a giveaway type of thing and it should be fine imo

      Or just the guy above said it's an act of appreciation and not a paid service

        I'm pretty sure it falls in the gray area, which means it isn't illegal but support can't help in case of an issue.

        We still stand by our stance that trading in-game items for anything outside of the game and vice versa is discouraged. Therefore, you will not receive any kind of assistance from the Customer Support Team in case any participating account loses items, get compromised, or in any other way get impacted by this kind of transaction. Taking part in this kind of exchange risks both your items' and account's security as we have no way to guarantee a safe environment for this trade.

We have quite a few editors that say they don't want the WLs, so we don't give them WLs. It's not us paying for edits, it is us being kind to people for editing.
              Yeah isn't that how casinos work as well? You offer a stake to middleman out of kindness and he gives you your winnings out of kindness!

              Of course it's illegal. Illegal by the definition of the rules at least. But whether the moderators or administrators think they must take action is up to them.

              There have been many of such "breaching of the rules" which everybody knows about but just nothing happens about them. To take one example, it's illegal to monetize a site or application that has to do with growtopia. But there are plenty of apps, even in playstore, that use graphics of Growtopia and don't abide by that particular rule They're not new ones either. Some of them have been here for quite a while.
              Even if you are at the right track, you'll still get run over if you just sit there.

                Casinos do work like that, there's no kindness. It's a fixed system for those casino players.

                  And paying certian amount of world locks for certian amount of edits is also a fixed system. No?

                  Threads have been closed in the past for offering world locks for real life service. To give an example, making YouTube edits or intros for world locks or vice versa.

                  This is the same thing. There's no reason for it to be called "kindness".

                    Trading your wls for things outside of the game should be fine,as long as you are not selling wls for money.The way grow stock give you 5wls per 100 edits can see seen as a way of returning a favor.It is the same as me giving my friend wls because he helped me in real life.However,trading wls for something outside of the game is still discouraged,but not illegal.

                    (Do not take my words for it,I am not the developer so i can't be certain that this is the case.Please take what I said with a grain of salt.)

                      I use Growstocks occasionally and it has been a helpful tool for me. I think it's actually a very well put together website.

                        Fan arts most definitely can not be done in exchange for wls, just search the forums a little bit and you'll see it
