I know submission approval as been slow, and features have stopped, but hopefully that will change in the near future. We've recently bid adieu to our original founder, AnimeVSReality, and I Missvirginia
will be the acting founder. Since the group slowed down to us all being busy, hopefully some new guidelines will move things along.
Submit Commission Information Sheets
I think this is a good prerequisite to joining, and being a member, so it shall stay. The folders CIS - Journals
and CIS - Deviations
will continue to function for this purpose. I continue to ask that there be 1 (ONE) sheet per member and if you would like to send an updated sheet please remember to remove your old one.Exception You can have multiple CIS for other commission types. If you're submitting sheets for your different services, just include in the comment section of your submission that the additional CIS is for your other service(s). Your submission should appear in your message center in your Correspondence section. Just click the "No Comments" link under the "Withdraw" button to leave a note for the Contributors there. New Members
When joining the group for the first time, you must include a link to your commission information sheet (CIS), and this CIS must include your examples and prices. They can include points prices, but they must include Paypal prices for obvious reasons. You will be allowed to submit to the rest of the gallery once your membership is approved and your CIS recorded.
Fewer Submission Trees
In contrast to trees, some of the folders will be consolidated. This will mean that some folders will have to be deleted, unfortunately. However, the CIS will remain. The folder system is now as follows:
Commission Info Sheets
CIS - Journals
CIS - Deviations
Items for Sale
Print Enabled Deviations
Commissions - Digital
Commissions - Traditional
Commissions - Artisan Craft
Commissions - Literature
Some folders also have explanations for their purpose inside of them. Please feel free to head over to the gallery check those as well.
Voting and Automatic Submissions
Your submissions will now be automatically approved to all art folers. CIS doler will be submit to vote, so we can continue to record who has commission sheets in the group and who does not and keep track of who has updated their sheets. It will stay at 3 (THREE) deviations per week. There will be a monthly folder shutdown for 1-2 days to go through the folders and make sure there are not incorrect submissions in the folders. Those that repeatedly submit to incorrect folders will be banned from the group without notice. If you accidently send something to the wrong folder, let us know.
We will continue to only accept commissioned works. Adoptables, gifts, prizes, requests, etc are still off limits. Your Character Here (YCH) auctions are no longer permitted. The only gray area is works that double as CIS deviations, that are for specials or sales.Note:
Multiple submissions to incorrect folders or submissions of clearly unacceptable status will result in swift banishment. The punishment is harsh since we are no longer voting on submissions. We will be depending on you to make sure things stay organized.
Features and Advertising
I hope to reinstitute the monthly features. However, for ease on everyone, I (or one of the Contributors) will randomly pick 5-10 members who have been recorded to have CIS in the gallery and feature their works and their CIS. I will check to see if they're active as well. Members can not self-select, however you may suggest other people for the feature.
Advertising is still not permitted on the front page. Please only use the profile comments for questions and comments.
We are making plans to reinstate paid features in the future, however, if you wish, you can donate here
as we're saving for contests and the like to put together for you all.If you're looking to commission an artist
, please send a note to the group and a journal will be posted as soon as possible. Simply provide information of what you're looking for, your price range (in real currency of course), how to contact you, and when you would like the information to be removed from our journal to stop further inquiries. Sure beats swimming through all those commission sheets!
