General

What is Toonio?

Toonio is a simple and comfortable cartoon editor. With it, you can create your first toon in 5 minutes, save it to your computer or upload it to the gallery for viewing by other users.

Is this the Toonator?



Jokes aside, no, this is not Toonator. It's just a project made by an enthusiast who didn't want Toonator to die due to lack of support from its creator.
If you suddenly don't know what Toonator is, be sure to look at toonator.com. It was this site that became a source of inspiration. Maybe you can even call Toonio the spiritual successor of Toonator. If there were no Toonator (and, paradoxically, the disappearance of the administrator), there would be no Toonio.

Where are the rules?

Right here

How to become a Tooner?

Click on the "Register" button in the upper right corner of the site.

Why do I need to register?

Because registered users have much more functions: you can publish your toons, vote for your favorite works, comment, continue other people's toons, save works in drafts and much more.

I didn't receive the confirmation email. What do I need to do?

Check the Spam folder, the letter could have got in there. If you use GMail, the email could also get into the "All Mail" folder (not Inbox, namely All Mail!)

I forgot my password / I still didn't receive the confirmation email.

In the login window, click on the "Recover password" button and follow the instructions. You will receive an email about account recovery (even if you couldn't confirm your account before that!)

How to publish my toon for everyone?

First, log in. Then you will have an ability to upload your toon to the site!

How to save my toon as a Draft?

When saving your toon, do not put a check mark on "Publish for everyone?". Then the toon will be saved as a draft: no one will see it, and you can edit it at any time.

What are those flipped hearts?

These are dislikes. Don't worry if you have many of them, in fact they don't affect anything except the position in the "Popular" section. Maybe Australians just wandered into the site...

How do I get into the "Popular" section?

The "Popular" section includes works whose rating (i.e. likes minus dislikes) is greater than zero. The higher the rating, the higher the toon's position.

What is the Toon of the Day?

This is the work that received the highest rating for the day. The creator of this toon receives Pencils, and the toon receives a special award. There are also Toons of the Week and Month: everything is the same here, but they give more pencils and more beautiful medals!

What is NSFW? I'm not at work, can I see it?

The NSFW mark hides toons that may harm the delicate child's psyche. Or they may simply be dangerous: for example, for epileptics. If you are over 18 years old (and you have set your date of birth in Settings), you will get access to a special NSFW section, as well as the ability to publish your toons under the NSFW mark. 😏

How do I know if I should tick NSFW or not?

If you really want to draw something that contradicts the norms of morality, space-time and other things that can harm the psyche of immature minds (pornography, drugs, bloody scenes, other adult topics), tick the NSFW mark when saving. So the thumbnail of the cartoon and its name will be hidden by default.

What is Archive?

This is a section accessible only to the account owner. Here you can hide toons that seem to be not very good, but you don't want to delete them at all. When adding a cartoon to the archive, the work disappears from all sections of the site, but people who have a direct link to the toon can still see it.

How do I delete my toons?

To delete a toon, click on the corresponding button on your toon page. Note that the works are not deleted immediately, but go to trash can, where they remain for 7 days before getting destroyed. We did this in case you change your mind or, for example, your restless brother deleted the work!

For how long can I edit my toons?

You can edit your toon only within 3 days after its publication. But this does not apply to drafts!

How do I make a backup copy of a draft?

To do this, just click on the "Duplicate" button on the toon page. Already published works, alas, cannot be duplicated.

What is this purple circle at the bottom of the site? Is it possible to remove it? It bothers me!

This is the Arc.io widget. This site helps us earn money without having Tooners to actually pay. Its work is quite difficult to explain in simple language, but he is very important. And if it interferes you (when creating a toon, for example), just enter the fullscreen mode.

Editor

THE EDITOR IS TOO COMPLICATED!

If you hover the cursor over some tool and hold it, a small description of the function will appear. If it has not become clearer, check the Manual.

Is it possible to draw on Toonio from my phone?

Well, it's possible, but the editor was not designed for mobile devices.
For Chrome, there is a feature called "Request desktop site" available in Menu. Click on it, and the editor window will be much bigger, almost even usable!

The Fill tool doesn't work!

Everything works, you just need to use it correctly. Due to some technical limitations, we cannot make the fill tool the way it works in graphic editors. Therefore, the tool with the bucket icon draws a figure filled with colour from the inside. So just try to draw some shape, for example a circle!

Ok, but how do I change the fill colour?

Select a colour on the palette and right-click on it. The same trick works if you use the colour picker tool!

How do I use the distortion tool?

Click anywhere on the canvas and then drag the cursor! The further you move, the more distortion is applied.
Please note that you can't undo this effect.

The hand tool doesn't work. I can't even click on it!

The only purpose of this tool is to move the upscaled canvas. If you haven't used the zoom tool, then the hand tool won't work either.

How do I attach a sound to my toon?

There is an icon with a note on the layers panel in the editor. Click on it to select an audio file. Or just drag the file into the editor window!

How much does it cost to attach a sound?

500 Pencils. You can re-upload the audio (when editing the toon) for free. For reaching some levels, you get free audio uploads.

Community

I have an uncontrollable urge to swear. Can I use swear words here?

You can swear, but keep in mind that if you teach a preschooler to swear like a lumberjack who hacked off a leg, you will be responsible for it! 😈

I saw a beautiful picture next to the username of someone. I want the same one!

Badges are one of the most valuable and rare awards. They are usually given for winning contests or for contributing to the history of Toonio. In general, a very rare thing!

I'm tired of the blue colour! How do I change the colour of my nickname?

Only Supporters can change the colour of their nickname. To become one, you need to buy from 300 Pencils for real money.

I don't like my username. Is it possible to change it?

You can't change your username, but you can change your nickname. This can only be done by Supporters once a month. If you can't afford it, just create a new account!

What is the difference between username and nickname?

Username is used to log in to the site, it is also displayed, for example, in the address bar. And a nickname is a name that is displayed instead of this username. Like on Twitter, for example!

What is a "Collection"? How do I fill it out?

The collection is your personal section where you can save your favorite user works. To do this, click on the white star on the toon page.

How do I express an even greater love for toons?

Click on the orange button with a star medal on the toon page. The award is a beautiful thing for the toon, which can reflect your reaction and make the author feel good (most of all, everyone likes The Great Mighty Poo!) 😅
The award does not give anything (except for some special ones), it is a purely decorative function.

How can I decorate my comment?

There are several text formatting functions: **bold**, __italic__, ~~crossed~~.
You can also mention the user by entering an asterisk and his username without a space (for example, @qvukoi). Well, you can also attach a cartoon by entering a link to it. And some emojis turn into cute pictures when you send them!

I have a (commercial) offer!

I've always dreamed of becoming a [[Big Shot]]! Contact me here.

I have a suggestion for the site.

Join our server in Discord and write your idea to the #ideas channel. Make sure that no one has offered it before!

I broke something.

Contact with Admin!

I joined Discord, but I can't find where to communicate and even write ideas!

You probably haven't read the rules attentively enough. Try again!

Pencils

What are Pencils?

This is the local currency of Toonio. You can find out how to earn and spend them here.

How to become a Supporter? How long does the Supporter status last?

Buy 300 or more Pencils. The Supporter status lasts one month after the last purchase.

How to buy Pencils?

There is a "Buy Pencils" button in your wallet. Click on it and you will see a miracle!
However, I'm not sure if you can buy Pencils for Dollars.

Which payment method is better?

There is no definite answer: both payment methods have their advantages and disadvantages. You can only buy from 1000 Pencils on Free-Kassa, but there are many payment methods. And on Lite-Kassa, you can buy Pencils for any amount, but sometimes something goes wrong, and the Administrator has to manually give you your Pencils.

I bought Pencils, but they my Toonio wallet is still empty! I'm not even saying about the real one...

Probably, you used Lite-Kassa. It has such a problem. Contact the administrator (there are his contacts here) and wait. Usually everything is issued within a day!

Levels

What are levels? How to increase my level?

Level is an indicator of how active you are on the site and how cool you draw. The level increases with the likes that other users put on your cartoons and comments.

What is the storage?

Storage is the place where your toons are located. The available space depends on your current level: the higher the level, the higher the storage size. If you run out of space, you can delete your older toons to free up space for newer ones.

Why is there a limit to toons? It's not fair!

Because the Toonio server is not made of rubber. If there was no limit, the server costs would be enormous. And I'm just a poor student...

My storage is full, and I don't want to delete my work! What do I do?

You can buy a new level, although it's quite expensive. But the users of the site are usually friendly, and if you ask, they will gladly give you likes in order to increase your level. 😉

What levels are there? What do I get for them?

For reaching levels, you get Pencils, free sound uploads, extra storage space, access to certain rewards and even disabling ads.
