ISSUES WITH MANAGING THIS GROUP Please read, as this may concern whether or not you will be kicked in the future. Read the rules.
Look, it's getting quite difficult to manage this group with such a busy life and you can probably all feel it with the way the submission process has been lately. Let's just cut the bullshit, I'm not committed enough to manage this group as it offers absolutely no incentive for me to do so. I'm happy to keep marginally operating this group as I have just been able to scrape by doing lately, but if anyone is unhappy with the effort being put in, then I'm happy to assess you for an Administrator application. Otherwise, be grateful that I take time out of my day to judge people's artwork which can be harder than it looks. It's not easy saying no to someone, but I believe the curation of a gallery needs to have it's standards.
The submissions folder has been getting very full lately, and sometimes if I leave it for long enough, artworks will expire. This does not mean I have declined your work, it just means I didn't get around to accessing it. I like to spend a fair bit of time assessing each piece. HOW CAN YOU GET YOUR ARTWORK MORE EASILY ACCEPTED?
Okay, so there are few points that I need to make about the submission process here. I'm going to be blunt, so for the faint of heart, you'll need to bare with me. 1. Please submit to the correct folders.
I can not emphasise how much easier this makes life for me, and how much more often I will accept your artwork! If you submit to an incorrect folder, it makes it so I have to go into the individual folders in the group, find your artwork and then transfer it to the correct folder. This takes minutes out of my day and if there are hundreds of submissions with the same issue (which there are), then it takes quite some time to fix. If you are unsure which folder your artwork belongs in, a great idea is to go into the gallery and look at each folder. The artworks in each folder should give you as clear as possible demonstration of what should be in that folder. If you are still unsure, P.M me and I will try to give a response on where your art work should go. Waiting, and making sure you've submitted to the right folder is a much better use of yours, and my time and gets more of your work shown within our gallery. 2. Please closely follow the group rules.
This. I can not emphasise how much people screw up with this part. Our rules are on our home page for a reason and they are the first thing you see when you come here. Please pay close attention to them. I swear if some of you were in the design industry, you'd screw up so many client briefings hahaha. To be honest, most of you follow the rules to the dot, but their are some repeat offenders who just can't seem to get it right and then try to argue with me over it.
Okay, So let's go over each rule one by one. Just to make this as clear as possible. "Breasts Are Power" is a highly moderated group, preventing low-quality artwork spam. All submissions must be accepted by the group's staff. Most artworks are accepted, however, we reserve the right to refuse artworks if:" Rule 1:
"The artwork is promoting links to services or other, external sites (e.g. preview images for comics, commission prices)." This means no advertisement
. It is completely fair that you promote your page and attract viewers, that is not crossing the line. But please, our gallery is not a place for artwork that has less included than a vanilla EA game with the promise of more content passed a pay-gate. Also, do not litter artworks with links and logo's for other websites. A discrete link in the description or a very small logo somewhere around the frame is all you need to advertise your Patreon page, and makes your presentation appear far more professional. In short, do not cheap-skate my members. Rule 2:
"The artwork does not meet the quality standards of the group. (e.g. Pictures of sketches in school books, MS paint quality digital art)" Okay, so this one can be a bit subjective, as any art critique or judgement is. It is also the most important rule here. If your artwork is not to the standard of the rest of our gallery, then it will not be accepted. I am not Pablo Picasso, I do not understand the in's and out's of art so do not send me PM's asking how to improve your artwork, I simply wouldn't know where to start. The matter of the fact is that I have a good eye for this kind of art, that is why I was chosen as admin. Unless I accidentally declined a work, my word is final and you'll need to do better if you'd like to be accepted. Try asking other members in the community on how to make your work more appropriate in quality and content. Rule 3:
"The artwork does not feature breasts, and/or is not submitted to the correct folder." So this goes back to the first point. Please submit your work to the right folders! Also, yeah, I sometimes get work that literally has zero emphasis on any way, shape, or form of breasts whatsoever. Look, just because an artwork might be sexy as f***, I'll often decline it if there is little in the form of breasts being shown within the image. This does not mean the subject needs to be naked, it just means that the breasts need to be the star of the show. Rule 4:
"The artwork features very niche or 'other/unwanted' fetishes (futa, scat, MLP, Sonic etc.)" Don't be offended, this doesn't mean you particular fetish might be "unwanted" universally, it just means that it does not belong here
. So often will I get furry content that sometimes it seems like I get more of that, than just shit that's human. Please, there are countless other groups for that kind of thing, do not submit it here. It's not just furry; anything that isn't pretty much based primarily around breasts will be rejected and could potentially lead to you being kicked from the group. I'VE SAID IT MORE THAN ONCE, NO FURRIES, NOTHING EVEN CLOSE.
Also, no vore, futa, the whole thing with the farts as well... really guys, I respect all of your preferences, trust me, I'm pretty out there my self, but know where it belongs, some people aren't ready for that stuff here. Rule 5:
"The artwork features anthropomorphic (furry or monster) characters (cat girls, tails, ears etc. are fine, but there's a clear line when the character is more animal than human)." Actually see above, pretty much covered this already. Notice how it says "monster" as well, by this I kind of mean any kind of creature that deviates too far from being human. Rule 6:
" Photography, and photo-manipulations will not be accepted." Look, the main point of this is that the group does not need to be responsible for someone uploading a morphed image of someone who wouldn't want it here. This is a liability defence and we'd like to keep it this way. Photo's also do not stand in the same field as some of the drawn artwork here in the group, which is the main focus here. 3. You have the right to ask me questions about your submissions, but do not argue with me!
I swear, anyone who threatens me is shown the door instantly
. Do not debate my decisions on your submissions, I don't owe anyone here anything, I do this because I want to help. Do not suck up to me, I can see through your shit. Be as honest as possible if you don't understand why your work was declined. Often I will accidentally decline a piece of artwork and that is why it's always good to ask, but if I say I intentionally declined the work, you will need to accept that decision and might need to find another group to submit it on. I love everyone's work that is submitted, everything is really a great effort and I'm so happy to see people learning the basics, and far beyond my own skills, but sometimes artwork isn't meant for every gallery, and sometimes, one of those galleries is this one.
Also, if you do have your knickers in a knot over my management of this group, you have two options, apply to be the admin and replace me, or do as so many have done before you and just leave the group. Honestly, you don't need to put up with my shit if you don't want, just leave if you're sick of it.
