Hello everypony. it's OJhat
here. This group has been very quiet for a long time. The simple reason is, we're all really busy!
It's tough to be a group co-founder/moderator and keep up to date with everything when many other important things in life take first priority. Bryal, the group's admin, has been very busy with his current job as i hear by the by, and the rest of us Co-Founders are, well, either very busy with our lives or have just not been able to get around to tackling that huge box of submissions that slowly come in and pile up.
But, thankfully, I found some time today, and decided to just plow through them all, not leaving any aside for inspection. They were either finally accepted, or they were denied. this was so i create a new slate in the group gallery so the speak.
If your submission WAS denied and you'd like to know why/feel it should not have been denied, read below for the reasons why and ways to make sure future submissions or resubmissions remade with the listed requirements will be accepted.
Now, for some reminders as a whole when submitting PIRLs, cosplay, or plushie deviations to the group, for those who perhaps forgot, or those who are new and don't know. i'll make this easy to scroll through for you all and put it in a categorized list.What you need in your submission
in this group, we believe in making sure to our best abilities that the works that are submitted give full credit to any artist/s who in some way contributed to the creation of that work; mostly vectors that other artists have made.
> credit the original artist and link their page in the description of the deviation. if you cannot find the original artist/page, then state so in the description.
> preferably links to vector in the description also if possible. this is not required, but it makes it easier for everyone
> if you are using you own original vectors, then please state so in description. it makes it hard for those of us accepting submissions when we can't tell if you made the vectors or not yourself. If they are in any way someone else's work, they are to get the credit.What will not be accepted
if your submission contains any of these things, then there is a greater chance we will deny acceptance of your submission.
> if you have not credited the artists in the description of your submitted deviation, then we will deny any deviations submitted. this can easily be prevented by making sure you state who made the vectors in your images.
> no explicit submissions. we have a suggestive folder, but it's best to try to keep submissions none-suggestive; this means no gore, no big sexual material, no r34 or none-canon shipping.
> any deviation that is not a photomanipulation (placing pony vectors within a photo), pony cosplay, or doesn't contain real life pony plushies within the photo, will be denied submission.Requested
We would greatly appreciate it if those of you who submit your work here could perform these things; it helps make our lives quite a bit easier.
> Please, submit your work into the correct folders. we have more than just the feature folder in this group. please take the time to study which folder your submission goes to. if you honestly don't know, or are for some reason unable to, THEN put it in the featured folder. it's more work for us to try and figure out where to put all your submissions, and we'd really rather not have to worry about those when at all possible.
> do not submit your work multiple times. as those who have submitted may have noticed, it's taken a long time for them to be accepted. while we try our best, the group's admin and us co-founders are all continually very busy to try and stay active in the group, so accepting your work may take a very long time. IF you have received notice that your submission has expired, try and resubmit if possible so that we can try to look into it
that is all for now, everyone! with BronyCon coming up in just a few days, i won't be able to help out here during that time, but afterwards i'll be back, and ready to start managing the group again when i am able to do so.
