I keep reading about CI Maintenance what is that?
it's a weekly happing in this group
starting from Monday  till Tuesday  the gallery will be closed (for a little while)

Okay now I understand but why does the group do this?
our group is fairly large and receives many submissions each day, so every weekend, we have a maintenance session,
to accept deviations that haven't been accepted yet talking about more then 200+
and also sending request to members if their deviation needs to be resubmitted.
We have a countdown on our front page showing when the maintenance will start and ends!
and a journal that keep the members updated about the status

What is CI?
CI is short for Creation-Inspiration.
This is a group for every artist no matter the skill or what level at Ci that doesn't count.
We give the members the attention they deserve!

whats the group limit?
one submission, per folder, per week policy, this does not however mean that you cannot simply send the group a message asking us to submit more for you, you absolutely can do that, all you have to do is politely ask us, not leave rude remarks on the front page and one available staff member will go and submit it for you:aww:
regarding our submissions limit please read the journal below
Regarding Submission Limits - EditedWe  had, , a fair amount of people asking about the submission limit, or being rude and making assumptions based on a simple glance of our FAQ without asking nicely about what our limits are.
Allow us to kindly explain, we are a large group, 40,000+ members, which means that on a daily basis we can get as little as 100 submissions daily! To allow us admin and other staff time to go through all the submissions (accept, move, whathaveyou) we implemented a one submission, per folder, per week policy, this does not however mean that you cannot simply send the group a message asking us to submit more for you, you absolutely can do that, all you have to do is politely ask us, not leave rude remarks on the front page and one available staff member will go and submit it for you!
We also get asked a lot, "well, why hasn't my submission been accepted, it's been x amount of time?" And the answer is, we are not all on the same time-zone, we all have lives outside of deviantart,

Gallery Guide : Help with the Gallery foldersBumped as of 28/08/2014 for New Members or Members who haven't read this!
Update: 26/2/2014
Regarding our submissions limit please read the journal below

since some of our members having problems,where to submit their deviations
I made this little guide to help and guide you.


1.Featured - (currently this folder is closed!)
what belongs in this folder?
feature(the works we vote for and think deserve special feature,
to make it clear to everyone of the crew this is �NOT a place for the crew �to put their works in

2 Mature folder
what belongs in this folder?
deviations that  involves nudity contains involves nudity  nipples, vagina, needs to have a mature content filter or else they will declined!
Mature contents like
-Nudity
-Sexual Themes
-Strong Language
-Ideologically Sensitive

3.Artisan Crafts and Cosplay
what belongs in

(if you still are unsure just note the group,and we will help you further :aww:)

does this group also accept sketches,line arts and W.I.P.S?
No sorry CI doesn't accept Sketches,line arts and W.I.P.S
we specially made a sister group which you can join and submit Sketches,line arts and W.I.P.S
called :icondoodlecreation:

but why do I see sometimes sketches �submitted then?
as long you made a sketch,what �is shaded and �detailed the group still accept it

below you see some examples of �those sketches we still accept.
la rochelle2 by nicolasjolly Playful Beagles Shaded Sketch by WildSpiritWolf

but what about personal blogs does this group accept them?
no we don't accept them.
same goes for screenshots
however if you want to share with us
that you are holding a contest feel free to contact the group

when I submit a deviation will it be auto-accepted and goes straight in the gallery folder?
No deviations the members submitted to our gallery aren't auto-accepted.
Before the deviation is put in the gallery , need 3 votes.
The staff �look at every deviation we get and then they will votes yes or no.
If your deviation is submitted in the right folder then we vote yes �if you deviation isn't submitted in the right folder we vote No
then it will gets enough yes votes, it means your deviation will be added in the gallery folder which you have requested.

What if my deviation got a �No by voting :( what must I do then?
If the staff thinks "this deviation needs to be in another gallery" they vote No. 3 times
Don't worry, the crew always explain why it didn't got in, and tell you the right folder
(and aometimes �when we have the time we will resubmit it for you)
but remember  only thing you need to is accept �our request (look at your Correspondence messages)
and then the deviation will be accepted.

I received a message that I have exceeded my limit of 1 submission a week, what's going on here?
We have a one submission per FOLDER per WEEK limit
it means you have submitted already a deviation in this folder
ask a crew members to add the deviation you want to submit for you in that folder.

Is this group holding an event or contest at the moment?
no
