Submitting A Deviation
Folders: Please submit your piece to the correct folder. Your piece will be accepted faster, and it also creates less work for us admins. If you accidentally submit to the wrong folder, we will decline it, and ask you to resubmit your work to its proper folder. For a list of our gallery folders, click here.
Gallery Organization: We have recently cleaned up our group gallery and have organized folders by alphabetical order, and have also installed subfolders. If you prefer to submit your deviations by manually going into the group gallery, you will need to click the appropriate folder, then click the most recent subfolder on the left (e.g. Traditional Art 4) and submit there. The original folders that hold their respective subfolders are full and cannot take any more submissions, so please make sure that you are in the most current version of the folder/subfolders.
Submission Limit: The maximum number of deviations a member can submit is one (1) per day to help avoid spam or similar issues.
Please do not submit the same piece multiple times. The system will force us to reject your submission, as a member’s piece can only be in the gallery once, and it will go towards your daily submission count. Please be patient with the admin team. There are very few of us dealing with a lot of submissions every day. If your work has not been voted on, it may be because we are either offline for a short period, or because we are discussing with other admins about the content of your work, if it should be submitted to another folder, and so on. We thank you for being understanding. (It should also be noted that submissions can expire after 3 days, but if it is by fault of the admin, we will manually place your piece in the group, so no need to worry that it will be forgotten.)
Content of Submissions
Video Game-Related Artwork Only: As the name of our group implies, we focus on art related to video games. If your piece is not based on a video game, we will decline. Original characters based on video games are allowed, but if you are submitting a piece that features your video game OC, please be aware that we have a folder specifically for such artwork. If we are unsure what game your submission is from, we will ask, so if you’d like to speed things along, tagging your deviation with the name of the game is helpful for the admins as well. If you submit something unrelated to the group, like a piece about a movie or anime, and so forth, and it has no video game counterpart, we will not accept it.
Please do not submit non-video game themed works. We do check every submission and will notice.
Original Submissions: Stolen/reposted artwork done by another deviant will not be accepted. If you like a piece done by another artist and want to showcase it in the group, find the deviation by them, go to the bottom right, and click “Add to a Group”. Then, click on Type a Group name, type in DA-Gamers, and select a folder. An admin will then vote on it. (Collaborations and similar pieces with clear permission from the other artist are acceptable.)
Mature Content: If your piece contains any content that could be deemed offensive, please tag your artwork accordingly and use the mature content filter. If your piece contains a topic that is a bit violent, suggestive, etc, and needs a filter, we will ask you to apply one before we accept your submission. If we find your artwork to be explicit past a reasonable level, we will decline. This should go without saying, but anything containing material that targets, insults, or slanders a group of people will not be accepted (this includes offenses such as racism, sexism, homophobia, and so on; it should also be noted that we will decide similarly if a submission’s aggression is non-specific but has the intent to start arguments).
Pornographic or otherwise obscene content is not permissible. We reserve the right to remove and/or ban a member from the group if they repeatedly break this rule. Please keep in mind that while many video games feature adult content, DeviantArt has their own policies regarding what is and is not acceptable on their site. Our group guidelines are taken from the DeviantArt Terms of Service regarding mature content and sexual themes (click the colored text for more info).
These rules may be expanded upon in the future. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! Thank you.
