Frequently Asked Questions


Read the FAQ below before you do anything in this Group
It exists for a reason and that reason is you
Even the 'amazed this Group exists' you

:heart::star: deviantPlayNice is here to help, not hinder :star::heart:

:? :? :? Frequently Asked Questions :? :? :?

Why did someone comment me with this Group icon? [Top]
If you received a comment with the Group icon, then the deviant who left the comment must have felt you were being inappropriate.
But I wasn't inappropriate! :ohnoes:
Try not to take your being linked to this Group as a bad thing. There are useful resources here that every deviant should know about. Take a look around, you're likely to learn a thing or two about deviantART. :D

You're a bunch of losers :finger:
This Group is still for your use. You can dislike it all you want, but it's in your best interest to educate yourself about the community you're involved with so you don't acquire a ! beside your name for breaking site rules. :heart:

Is this an anti-bullying Group? [Top]
This is not an anti-anything Group. This is a resource deviants now have available to help make the best of deviantART.
How is this a resource?
The icon helps those who may not be well-equipped to "just deal with it" on the internet. The Group resources help whoever clicks that icon learn more about deviantART.

(2) Notes: :note: The effectiveness of this Group depends on how each individual chooses to use it. :note: The purpose and focus of this Group is to help.

Why 'deviantPlayNice'?
It seemed appropriate. The term play nice is often used by mothers when two children first meet and begin fighting with one another, "play nice" is a way of letting the child know their behavior is not appropriate and it has to stop. Polite and direct.

How can I contribute to this Group? [Top]
Every deviant can submit to the Collection folders. Please only submit dA resources. All other submissions will be declined and continued invalid submissions will get you blocked from the Group.

Group Privileges

Members are deviants interested in the progress of deviantPlayNice, as a valuable resource to deviants within our community (see group details). Members have blog submission privileges and are encouraged to share their knowledge of the community with the Group. Please read the Blog Submissions widget at the Group blog before submitting.

Administrative Roles
As an administrator, deviants become an intricate part of the Group. Taking on any of the following roles will sacrifice one of your Group Admin slots.

FAQ #423: Why is there a limit on how many groups I can be an administrator of?

Contributors are deviants who frequently create tutorials or offer ideas for Group improvement. Contributors can submit to our Group Gallery (please read the Gallery Submissions widget before submitting). These deviants have access to the Admin Area where forum posts will be made to address/discuss updates or changes within the Group. They do not have privileges to maintain the Group in any way.

Co-Founders are deviants who directly assist in maintaining this Group. They will approve appropriate submissions, respond to reasonable comments (actual questions or suggestions for the Group) and hide all Group comments.

(2) Notes: :note: Further instructions and guides are available in the Group Admin Area--visible only to administrators.
:note: Anyone found attempting to sabotage the good-intentions of this Group from within administration will be permanently blocked from the Group.

Why can't I submit more than 5 deviations? [Top]
The Group has a 5/day Global submission limit. This means you are able to submit a total of 5 deviations to this Group within a 24 hour period.
But I have more than 5 deviations to offer! :ohnoes:
The Group will still be here tomorrow. :pat:

How do I leave the Group icon in a comment? [Top]
:icondeviantplaynice: will display the Group icon as a link to this page.
Can I use :devdeviantplaynice: instead?
You could, but the :icon: is designed to catch the viewers attention. Seeing deviantPlayNice is likely to confuse more than encourage interaction. The point is to lead deviants here so they can learn more about deviantART. :nod:

What if I have more questions or suggestions? [Top]
Please send all questions & suggestions in a Group Note. :note:
