I was trying to publish a custom element, which was using edited/remixed elements from other creators. I used the Tongue, Animal Nose and Fangs Prizes made by Media Molecule as assets in it too, but when I tried to publish it, it says I can't because of private creations, I checked and they were the assets from MM, no biggy, I thought, I just deleted them and sculpted my own replacements (although a bit crappier). But the problem PERSISTS! Even after I deleted the Private elements, they still count as if they are in it. What can I do about this? I have a lot of work in this puppet and the problem carries over when I try to make a copy.
We’ve not heard back from you in a while.
Is this issue still happening for you?
There was a recent fix on prizes and hopefully it’s resolved your issue?

Thank you for reporting the issue, could you please let us know if this issue has been resolved? A lot of MM prizes are now remixable?
Speaking to Mediamolecule today, as I have similar issues and had a minor meltdown on Twitter, and they say that with the next update, all prizes will be fully remixable, so should solve some of these issues.
The bug that ties in and tags all creations as containing a private element even when removed was not addressed.
yeah the prizes are private which can cause massive release complications (even after being removed from the scene)
I explain the situation in this post here: https://feedback.indreams.me/forums/917431-dreams-bugs/suggestions/39857323-private-creations-causing-release-complications-ex
I saw other people having the same problem too.
@TAPgiles the content I used to remix my creation was all public and remixable content, the content that is causing the problems are all prizes that were made by Media Molecule themselves.
You would expect that content and elements you were given could be used freely in your creations, but that seems to not be the case at the moment.
Furthermore, even after I deleted all of that content, it still says they are in the element even though they got removed completely.
As you can see in this video, none of the listed content is actually present anymore:
Did you save it out of a different creation that at the time had private elements? If so, it locks in the genealogy of that original creation for the new remix (save-new makes it a remix).
