I like the example pictures in the thread (I think they're new?). I also forgot how to do suffixes (if we have a non-registered baby). Do we not put one then or...
Edit: Okay so sorry I'm going to sound really confused about this. I did find the list of suffixes though It looks like you can have 3 babyz registered to BCRS but 4 (now 5?) babyz in a pageant. So they don't have to be registered babyz? And would I be able to just register a suffix?
Sorry, I always come back to this and am not totally sure but haven't wanted to ask xD
Rebecca ♠️, not sure if you'd ever found answers to your questions, but if you do not have or do not want to have any babyz registered with BCRS, you can still enter pageants and just say their name, without a suffix.
If you do want to register for BCRS, you can pick 3 babyz to register, and they will all share the same suffix that you choose. You can't just register a suffix to use among whichever babyz you decide to enter in each pageant, the suffix would only apply to the specific 3 babyz you register.
A 4th baby can be registered if you have retired 3 babyz from bcrs, which is why up to 4 babyz can be entered per parent in the pageants here. You do not have to be registered to enter, though.
I hope that helped, but please feel free to ask if you have any other questions, or if you're not clear on these still
Trisha thank you so much, that makes it a lot more clear! I was confused on if I had to register babyz to enter since it seemed like I always saw people using suffixes. That and I finally figured out the trick for taking better pics so hopefully I can come back to the pageants and enter soon

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere (especially if somewhere super obvious lol) but I've been looking around for some info and haven't been able to find it here or on the BCRS site... or maybe I'm just really really confused lol
How do you register a suffix? Do you just register your babyz with your chosen suffix, and that automatically claims the suffix for you? Do all your babyz use your own suffix, even if they were not hexed by you? e.g. If I registered Melody, would her suffix be Trisha's or my own? I'm just not sure since in the Petz community we have to use the breeder's/hexer's suffix lol. Also, how would I find out which suffixes are taken or not? Rebecca mentioned a list of suffixes above but I haven't found it yet >_<
ALSO, I'm confused on the wording on the BCRS limit? IIRC it's worded something like "if your 3 registered babyz retire, you may register a 4th" so does that mean after the first 3 you can only have 1 registered at a time from then on? Is that 4th baby your last BCRS baby ever or can you have a 5th when he/she retires?
You need to send an e-mail into BCRS where Rima or myself will process it. By sending the e-mail you are claiming your suffix. There's a list on the website of the taken suffixes. The suffix belongs to you, if a baby is yours but you give it to someone else the baby will be re-registered under their suffix. If you retire three babyz you can then have a maximum of four babyz in rotation. A baby is retired when it reaches 1000 points.
Thank you for the help, Jen! Just so I'm clear on the last part, that means if I register Hypothetical Baby 1, 2, and 3, and they all retire, then I may have Hypothetical Baby 4, 5, 6, and 7 registered simultaneously?
