Hello everybody, XeruFury back again. Recently a lot of people have complained/contested submission denials (there have been a few). Most of these fall under a very basic set of rules that I listed here but never made a big stink with a journal on the actual groups for:
xerufury.deviantart.com/journa…

Feel free to check it out, but I'll post the less decorative edition here:

~This is made because many of you ask the same question: Why was my piece declined? Well, here is a handy-dandy guide for you to find out on your own~

NSFW Content: The piece was considered to be heavily pornographic or lewd
Group Selection: The piece was submitted to groups focused on pornographic content or other distasteful genres
Controversial Content: The piece was considered controversial and likely to cause arguments
Unrelated Piece: The piece was not related to the group or its ideas
Wrong Folder: The piece was submitted to an inappropriate folder
Flagged User: You have been flagged as a banned user awaiting block
Quality Control: The piece was far below what is considered the quality standard of the group
Offensive Content: The piece was considered heavily sexist, racist, etc
Slanderous Content: The piece was considered to be slanderous to a group, idea, etc
Stolen Content: Artwork was reported as stolen from another user
Offensive Tags: Tags on piece were considered a break in any above rules
Spam Submission: Piece was sent to the group more than one time
Lack of Artwork: Piece was considered void of artistic work (heromakers, randomly generated, etc)
Advertisement: Piece was considered to be an advertisement for you or another group or entity
False Information: Piece was considered to be 'wrong'; this goes for guides, walkthroughs, and things of that nature

NSFW Content is, to us, any of the following:

   Suggesting at sexual activity
   Falling under default deviantart.com NSFW rules
   Exposed body parts not expressed in default dA rules (breasts, non-erect penis, etc)
   Containing images of fetishes or other sexual themes

Controversial Content is, to us, any of the following:

   Created to cause arguments
   'Dissing' a game or product

Offensive Content is, to us, any of the following:

   Containing human excrement and excremental liquids of any kinds
   Containing exceedingly foul language in the title or piece
   Excessive amounts of gore
   Containing racist or other forms of biased slurs and slang
   Inappropriate due to common sense's dictation

Slanderous Content is, to us, any of the following:

   Containing slurs against a specific group or person
   Passively aggressive towards a group of people or person

Questions still not answered? Then send a note to XeruFury for further clarification! Note: please include passcode in subject of note.
Passcode: Bamboo


Please keep in mind! This list can be updated at the discretion of the creator at any time. I hope this guide assisted you in your daily dA travels. Have a nice day!

Thank you! I believe you signed up for the OC contest, I'll choose the victors by the seventh (a week of judging is generally standard, so I hear).
