Rules

Sister Group:
:iconall-sci-fantasy: - Now live!

-Disclaimer-

Still working on the rules, so please be patient with us. If something gets denied, please don't take offense. (rules updated 01/27/2014)

General Rules Summary
Before you are approved, I need to know that you understand that submissions must contain something visually related to fantasy, from elves, dwarves and dragons, to magic or obviously fantasy themes. It could be from weapons seen in Final Fantasy, or weapons with rune etchings, to mages slinging spells. It doesn't need to be medieval fantasy, but modern to futuristic content needs to be powered by ether or magic, not just technology based on what humans can do in the real world. A good example is Terry Brooks' Shannara series, or The Elder Scrolls and the Dwemer technology being powered by soul stones.

I have a ton of people who try to submit scifi, scifi-steampunk, super heroes, and Pokemon. The reason why I don't accept these or sparkle dogs/animals or My Little Pony is because I don't find that they fit the classic Fantasy genre. Anyone who's been into things since LotR and very early D&D may understand where I'm coming from. Modern fantasy can be anything from Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, to Terry Brooks' Magical Kingdom of Landover, which crosses over from the modern world into a more primitive medieval-inspired world.

Also, on excessive blood & gore, nudity and sexual themes: We don't accept this, period. If you wouldn't do any of this around a child, we wouldn't accept it here. Gay, Straight, Furry, I don't care. Minor kissing from either side is fine, but because I try to be fair and equal. I don't want either side yelling at me.

I'll try to write up something more concise in the future, but this is my best way to describe how our group operates. I don't want people joining and then finding the group isn't what they're looking for.


Please read these Journals first.
all-fantasy-group.deviantart.c… all-fantasy-group.deviantart.c…

If you are put off by our new terms for submission, quietly leave instead of causing drama. We are a dArama free group. Do not join if you do not agree with our terms. We just want all ages & walks of life to enjoy our group. Certain subject alienate different people groups.

We want Harmony. :community:


**Galleries will be updated with "what goes where" soon, so that placement will be better defined.

:bulletblue::bulletblue: General rule of thumb: PG to PG13. :bulletblue::bulletblue:

Rules



YES

:bulletgreen: Your art must contain something that is very obviously fantasy. Mages, Knights with enchanted items, magical forests with will-o'-the-wisps and faerie lights.
:bulletgreen: OC's that are legitimate fantasy.
:bulletgreen: Game/book/movie/RP board games (think D&D). Goes in the Fan Art Folder. Remember, they need to be doing something Fantasy, or else it defeats the purpose.

NO


:bulletred: Absolutely no suggestions to the Featured folder, in favorites or otherwise. We might be using the Featured folder as an artist directory at some point.
:bulletred: No submissions with maturity filters on it, for any reason. Content without the MC filter, but is too skimpy, will be rejected. Clothing needs to have tops reach the waist, bottoms be mid-thigh; skirts a bit longer, please. Absolutely no nudity. Pubic hair is not allowed.
:bulletred: No furry art, including sparkle animals. Exceptions are dragon-like, gryphon, or other mythical creatures related to fantasy.
:bulletred: No MLP (My Little Pony) art. They have their own groups. While they are Pegasi and would fit into fanart, the association of MLP doesn't quite fit the fantasy genre. These days fanart for MLP almost fits into a sparkle animal category.
:bulletred: Absolutely no Scifi or Superheroes. They may be other-worldly but scifi is science and superheroes have their own genre.
:bulletred: No cyberbullies or cyberstalkers are allowed.
:bulletred: Respect your fellow members. If you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all (which would include profane language).

I'm going to slowly work my way back to doing submissions. I still have some things I need to focus strongly on before returning. Hunting for freelance work just isn't easy, so I'm trying to figure out ideas to post on another site, and hope people will buy them. With my college breathing down my neck about paying stuff off (which they're mostly responsible for), I need to find stuff fast.

Meanwhile, all potential members, especially you with pending membership requests, do this for me. Please do this for me. Read the front page and do ask I ask in the summary. I know it's a long read, but it's worth both our whiles. If I see blank requests with no summary of the Fantasy work you're submitting, I'm just going to ignore them until either you write in a comment in the process, or it expires.

If you don't know how to click the link to your process, just note the group and give an explanation. Otherwise it looks like you blindly clicked "join group" without understanding that All Fantasy Group is not an art dump. I don't want this group to be a place to randomly dump art and hope for the best. I do hope we grow into an actual community.

I promise I will get to re-writing it and trying to list out basics that effectively describe the group better. It just seems that if I don't write paragraphs on the front page -- no one will read them. People do seem allergic to clicking links and taking time to read stuff. I'll try to take time every few days to come in here, approve stuff, and figure something out that works better.

As long as it's fantasy and suitable for kids, then yes. No problem :D

When will the new folders be open for member contribution? I would like to submit something into the 'Mer-People' folder but I can't seem to at the moment.

Ohhh. Let me go check the permissions. I'm so sorry for that. Sometimes when new folders are made, things go crazy.
