Before we start I do want to just note the DA glitch has been fixed by the looks of things, so all is well again when it comes to submissions. Thank you for your patience with that while we had to deal with it.
This journal is just going to be a basic reminder of the rules of the group, as it seems day to day we deal with so many people who aren't too clear about them, perhaps because they've been a member for so long as don't visit often enough to remember. So here we go!
This group is primarily to get famous- you're here because you want to get watchers, right? What we consider 'famous' is 300+ watchers. The condition of this group is that once you reach 300 or more, you need to leave us. Boo! But you can always be happy you've reached such a milestone!
There are a LOT of members in this group, and occasionally a lot of things go unnoticed or missed- as you can understand, ESPECIALLY how many watchers every member has. So unfortunately some people are a little dishonest and don't tell us once they hit the 300 mark. I do understand that it can go unnoticed- I myself was a member of this group and hit over 300 and didn't notice- I had to kick myself out!
We rely on you guys to keep an eye on things to help us out with this. I encourage you all if you're reading this to check your watchers now!
As I said a lot do go unnoticed, and now with the new staff of the group, we are slowly 'tidying up' a little bit, so to speak. This includes going through every single group member and checking your watch count and that is NOT an easy task! A lot of you have already received a note explaining that you have over 300 watchers and some of you even had over 500 or even 1000- what a shock that was!
Unfortunately, not everyone is co-operative and nice about this. We frequently get excuses such as-
"But none of them are even active!"
Don't get me wrong, we are sorry about that. It is unfortunate if your watchers are inactive but unfortunately we can't do anything about that. Rules are rules and that is what we follow, and us admins really don't appreciate it when we have people essentially making us feel guilty for obeying the rules. You all agreed to these rules upon joining, so please respect them and don't make us feel so awful!
Once you have been asked to leave, you need to leave. This group is for the people with under 300 watchers, to help them get exposure and more watchers and unfortunately once you've hit 300, this group is no longer for you. There are a lot of groups who have a higher number though, if I find some I will link them to you here later.
Now that that's clear I'll just touch up on some other rules that tend to get ignored or missed.
We do not accept recolours or doll maker images. So if you've coloured a screen capture or someone elses art, or made it in a doll making program, it is not welcome here and it will be declined. Bases ARE accepted, but if we see you've used a base and didn't credit the maker, it'll be declined.
We do not accept adult content. Unless it is heavily censored, and I mean HEAVILY, it most likely will not be accepted. Please keep your images to PG13!
If you have over 300 watchers, do NOT make another account just to join us again. Side accounts are okay- as in if you have a main account dedicated to... anime art lets say, and a side account for sonic- we will accept the side sonic account on the condition your main has LESS THAN 300 watchers too. Your main accounts DO count- they don't add up together (say you have 200 on one and 200 on the other, we don't consider that 400) but we will not accept you if either account is over 300.
If you're leaving DA or abandoning your account, PLEASE leave the group first! This leaves inactive accounts that clog up our members logs and makes our jobs a thousand times harder than they need to be, so consider this one a favour to us!
Please submit to the right categories! If you're ever unsure, contact an admin! Our icons are on the front page, or leave a comment on the group- we will get back to you asap.
I hope this clears a few things up, I'm sorry it was long but we really are getting swamped with things we don't need to be- we need your co-operation as a group to keep this running smoothly! Thanks for your time guys and if anybody has any questions then leave a comment below and let us hear you out and help you!
