Reposting this so all the new members can see the rules~ALL MEMBERS READ~
Been a long time, hasn't it? |D Well, I've been having some trouble here and in some of the other groups I administrate, so I figured it was time to set the rules straight in an official posting. There's been a good deal of drama, finger-pointing and complaints regarding a flood of Zoid model photos in other groups.In the #Organoid-fan-club as of now NO photos of Zoid models will be accepted into any folder in the gallery!!
I'm not saying photography isn't art, because frankly I love photography, but this I will not allow my group's gallery to be full of model photos and eclipse the real focus of this group- art of Organoids. In the #Organoid-fan-club NO ONE with ANY SORT of history of rule breaking or violations of deviantART's Terms of Service will be allowed membership no matter the circumstances!!
This is a big rule, because I believe very strongly on it. Any member with a history of art theft, spamming, hate art/flaming or excessive obscene behavior/language will be banned
from joining the group. Several current members are up for membership reevaluation and may be kicked out. If another member of the group becomes a problem, merely contact me or another administrator via group or personal note. Any member who is denied entry that tries to object my ruling of them being cast out/prevented from joining will be reported to deviantART staff; if there's cause enough for me to deny you membership, then you are aware that you're doing something wrong. In the #Organoid-fan-club only good-quality and presentable art will be allowed and sub-par submissions will be rejected!!
I'm sorry if that means some members can no longer submit art, but come on people. Now, I'm not talking like 'you can't submit this because I don't like it' sort of thing, I'm talking about seriously poor quality deviations. I'm sorry if its the best you can do, but I don't want my group full of sub-par art. Now, if a piece shows effort, is relevant to the group's focus and is presentable, then it will be allowed. I will always write a critique on a piece if I reject it due to it being of sub-par quality, so that the artist will know what's wrong and not just get their piece denied. In the #Organoid-fan-club ANY and ALL art of questionable origin will be rejected and investigated if it appears stolen!!
I will not
allow any stolen art, recolors, traces, screenshots and whatnot to be added to my group. If I think your art might not be what it seems I may question you about it or reject it from being submitted, and if it is worrying enough I will report it to deviantART staff. I will not have another recolor or stolen piece uploaded to this group again. Any violent resistance to my decision may result in the offending deviant being banned from the group, and if serious enough, reported to deviantART staff.
Sorry to slam you guys with the new rules, but I've been meaning to get these posted for a long time now. These new rules are not directed at any one person, but if any of these new rules apply to you please make sure you adjust to these new rules! I may be an understanding and reasonable person, but if my patience is tried I will not hesitate to take the appropriate action. Just because you may be a good friend of mine does not make you immune to group rules.
Keep these new rules in mind when submitting!! I'll talk to you later!!
Your Founder,~Ibeyla ^^
