I've noticed that it perhaps wasn't very clear right away, for both new and current members, as to what they can upload in their character account's gallery.
So I've added a little section to our RULES pages as to what people can use as deviations to support RP's, character relations, background stories etc.
In short it comes down to the following:You may upload any character related deviation to the character account's gallery, as long as the deviation is made by yourself, or uploaded with consent of the artist whom made the piece you want to upload.
(A short list of these things can be found under the new addition to the rules.)
While pretty self explanatory, the group did receive a question about it from one of our newer members so I figured it wouldn't hurt to clarify it in the rules.
If you do have any artworks uploaded in the character account's gallery, and one of the admins notices this, you will receive a note in which you'll be given two weeks to remove said artworks.
If that hasn't happened in two weeks, the admins will remove them as well as give an official warning.
Why the warning?
Well to put it simply, uploading artwork you didn't make, even if it's for an RP account, is still considered art theft. As to DA the accounts linked to this group are just other deviants and will be treated as such.
In the worse case of someone reporting stolen work in your gallery, DA staff will
link your character account to your main account, it has happened a short while ago considering a short suspension with an old member.
Both the character account and/or your main account could
be suspended or banned because of it.
Since it is against the rules to upload art without consent of the original artist.
Something we wish to prevent, so the group is going to be a bit more strict on that one small point.
Besides which, while the group does try it's best to give it's members as much liberties as it can, it does not condone or wish to promote art theft.
I do not expect this to be something that's going to be a lot of trouble, since it's pretty self explanatory why uploading artwork you didn't make isn't allowed, but felt the need to clarify that point in our rules for our new, and possibly old, members anyway.
Thank you for your understanding.
As for the topic of the collab.
The deadline for it is May 1st. Which is next week.
I've noticed a lot of people wanting to participate haven't finished their entry, of maybe they've forgotten.
So before I postpone the deadline one more time, is there anyone who even wants to have more time to finish their part of the collab?
The new deadline would be May 22th.
Giving everyone a couple more weeks, and myself a bit more time to make the background of the collab.
If those who are participating, are not sure if they're going to finish things in time for the new deadline, let me know.
I'll either remove your character from the list or move them to the Requested characters part if you wish.
Those who haven't finished their part by May 22th, will still have time for a last minute submission.
Meaning, while I'm putting together the collab, you can still drop in your part so I can edit it in the background.
Which I will announce in a journal once that time comes.
After that, I'm afraid your part won't be included in the collab.
But I'm hoping to host one for the club around Halloween time, so there's an opportunity to join the collab again then.Mogwai1988
