EDIT:....Look who's back! It's me jujuMilani, I'm trully sorry for abbandoning the group, but it was not the group...it was the internet. I entered college this year, and i'm swampped with tests and papers... Tha'ts why i changed the roles, now all co-founders have full "power" inside the group, just like the crappy founder, me!. I know that saying sorry is not enough...But i will contribue with commissions prizes and points to all future contests we hold!
Hey guys! I'm sorry the group seems kinda dead!
I need to update the rules because there's things that have been getting into the group that break deviantART rules. I don't want the group to get reported or something, so it's to keep you guys and the group safe!
I'm going to try and make this as simple as possible:
What we'll no longer accept starting today:
-Art that was not drawn by YOU. Basically, if you didn't make it, don't submit!
-Pixel art that uses official sprites. This is mostly because deviantART rules don't like edited stuff!
-Stuff that looks like it was traced or heavily referenced from either official materials or another person's art. This isn't limited to drawings, and does include pixel art and other forms of art.
-Photomanipulations. I believe we do not accept these already, but I want to make sure that they're here on this too.
-Fetish art. Please keep the group PG.
I think that this is enough of a start. If you guys have any questions about WHY, feel free to ask me.
Also, while I'll still keep the auto-approve on, I will be cleaning the group's gallery out and deleting violations of the rules. I will try to leave messages as to why it was deleted, and will most likely do that via notes.
(If jujuMilani has something she'd like to add or change, please note me or something o: )
I also want to make sure you guys understand something. When submitting, please submit to the right folders!
Mega Evolutions go in the folder with their regular counterparts. Mega Charizard X/Y goes in the First Gen folder, and so on. They are technically still Charizard, so therefore are lumped with First Gen.
Also, no penalties for submitting to the wrong folder. It happens, and I'll simply move it to the right one c: But submitting something against the rules does get a penalty, so please follow them!
