♦ Lupinar is a virtual world inspired by the age of mammals. A member uses an avatar, or pose, to roam a variety of locations. Artists are capable of creating, uploading and even selling their own, original artwork.
♦ Lupinar is free, however subscriptions grant you access and benefit you to use other features (such as, different species, access to the pose uploader, paid-only rooms). You can view what the levels of subscriptions have to offer here [link].
♦ In order to have access to multiple features, you must purchase "Deltas". One Delta is equal to one (US) Dollar. Deltas can be earned using two options; you may perform art related jobs such as creating poses for other users, or purchase them from My Account > Subscriptions.
Keep in mind you are only capable of buying Deltas in intervals of "5", and must use a PayPal account to purchase Lupinar currency.
♦ Lupinar is not technically a game, though it is treated similarly through the use of its poses and locations. It is more of a chat than anything else with the addition of having artistic liberty in your appearance. It is fairly easy to use; below is a list of tutorials that will aid you:

♦ Although Lupinar is not technically a "game" (though one is capable of referring it as such), users are allowed to RP as long as it is kept among the willing. Pestering other users about mates, packs, clans, families, etc is not the ideal form of roleplay here at Lupinar and is deemed a bother to most users. It is however, not against the rules.
♦ Moderators are different than member by the color of their name. There is a way to establish difference between the different levels of moderator ranks by checking an option in your "sniff" (profile). A quick explanation of how Lupinar is run:
the Subordinate() is portrayed by a triangle-like symbol by their name. The colors of these users are black. There is no difference between those who pay and those who do not.
the Omega () are members that are capable of kicking but do not have access to the administrator CP. They are usually retired or hiatus staff members, beta-testers, or long-term users.
the Gamma () is the first of the administration ranks and are depicted as blue in the Mysts. These users are moderators and work for a specified team (artstaff, customer service, forums department).
the Beta () are global moderators represented by a B, Betas are team leaders of Lupinar and work for a specified team (artstaff, customer service, forums department). Their names are red in the Mysts.
the Alpha () has access to everything in the ACP; they are responsible of leading the administration, oversee decisions being made and features implemented, and completing monthly revenue. Their names are magenta in the Mysts.
