! This is DaemonBlitzkrieg
here with an epic apology for not updating sooner due a mix of a non-stop work schedule and Sun&Moon's release (like every other Trainer out there!)
However, even though the new group changes were meant for the 18th, no better time like the present. Here's a list for all these changes + an example for each folder to ease what goes where. (Note: Any image used as an example on this journal were already accepted into the group, so please don't feel like I'm singling these out. I ty.)
-- The Gen 7
Folder is now completely official in Poketopia, meaning it must now follow the same rules as the other Generations folders & Free Submit
time is over. Remember, Generations
folders are Pokemon Only
-- Submissions with Etsy
links (and the like) will no longer be accepted into the Crafts & Cosplay
folder. Selling and the promotion of Selling products solely belong in the Promotions
-- Folder Name Changes:
- Crafts & Cosplay >> Photography
- Crafts, Cosplay. This is one of the 1st folders that was brought to my attention that it was misunderstood what the main type of submission it showcases. Photography is the main submission type for this folder so may as well more...obvious/apparent/...noticeable? Idk.
- WIP - Sketches, Doodles, Lineart >> Doodles, Sketches, Lineart
. Dropping the WIP part as it seems that's the only part deviants are giving attention to. As such, let's make it more clear: Any, and I many any,
image dubbed a Doodle, Sketch, or Lineart is basically considered unfinished,
so they get their own folder so they won't be declined. Even though it must be stressed, this is by far not a bad thing as, instead of 2 a day, the submission limit is actually 5 a day
- Trainers - Original >> Trainers - Original, Teams
. Another reason for frequent decline: No obvious
spot for 'Team' submissions (even though it has been apart of the rules since forever). It is also the only Humans folder so lets keep that in min when submitting.
-- Recent Decline Reasons:
A notification of sorts to pay attention to when submitting.
- Drugs & Drug references
are not acceptable.
- Mega Evolution & Primal Reversion
is still considered Generation 6.
- Pixel Art
have their own folder, not submitted into the Generations folders
- The Original Characters
folder is a Pokemon Only
- Humans are not accepted in any
Generations folder, Trainers
- Submissions & Journals for Selling, Contests, and Commissions are all for the Promotions
- If you really aren't sure where something goes, submit it to the Meme
folder. They are both technical 'Other' folders. Or you can still submit a Note
Now enough of the negative stuff. Let's showoff some art!~
And that shall do it for this month's update. Will there be another before the year's over? Idk, we'll definitely be welcoming 2017 with open arms because 2016 just sucked...sooooooo much. :/
Please feel free to ask any additional questions about the changes below & hey, Sun & Moon has been out for over a week. Howz it treating ya? Feel free to discuss that as well!~ (Oh, and if any artist featured here wishes for me to take their image down, for reasons that are your own, I'll gladly oblige np.
Until next time, future Pokemon Masters!~
