Group Rules and Gallery Submissions

12 min read

Deviation Actions

MEMBERSHIP:

:bulletgreen: Unless you were otherwise kicked out, any one may request to join this group.
:bulletgreen: Due to the overwhelming number of quickly deactivated accounts, photographers who try to submit poor quality photos of penises, and other artists who don't draw that have been joining, we're implementing a screening process.
:bulletgreen: If there's no evidence of yaoi, BL, or boys in your gallery/favorites/collections/whatever, we'll probably decline the join request. We understand that new deviants might not have much of that, but it will still weigh heavily on the process.
:bulletgreen: New members are always welcomed by an admin. Once your join request is approved, you can start contributing work to the group.

SUBMISSIONS:

:bulletgreen: Only members can submit work to this group.
:pointr::pointr:  It must be your own work (alternate accounts have to be members as well if you want to submit from there).
:pointr::pointr:  You may suggest non-members' work to the Group Favorites, if you you'd like.
:bulletgreen: Please submit your work to the “Pending Submissions” folder. If it's accepted, the admins will sort it for you.
:pointr::pointr:  This is to cut down on the frustration and length of the submission process.
:bulletgreen: You can only have up to six (6) submissions per day.

Things we DO NOT accept:

:bulletred: Memes (very few exceptions)
:bulletred: Girls and women (or otherwise female bodied individuals)
:bulletred: "Futanari" women or otherwise male bodied persons with female breasts
:bulletred: Works without actual male bodied individuals in them
:bulletred: Works that have a female bodied individual as the main or one of the main focuses.
:bulletred: Rape or noncon
:bulletred: Gore and/or Vore
:bulletred: Stamps
:bulletred: Bases (does not include work done ON a base)
:bulletred: 3D Models
:bulletred: Literature
:bulletred: Photos
:bulletred: Rendered Photos
:bulletred: Photo Manipulations
:bulletred: Blank/Not customized YCH

FOLDERS:

Below, you can look over how our folders work and how the admins will go about placing your submissions once they are accepted. We'll be taking care of sorting completely, but be sure to read this if you want to understand why your work went into one folder over the other!
*If you have a question about the placement of your work, please send the group and note and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Be sure to include a link to the submission in question, as well!

Now for the folders. Here's the sequential submission guide we refer to when deciding where to submit your work to. If it doesn't qualify for the first category, it goes on to the next! Not that one either? It keeps going! And so on until we finally have a 'yes!' Keep in mind that between the different admins, there may be some splitting of criteria on what counts as what. Throughout the folder explanations, we have links. If you are unsure about what we are trying to say, click on those for some help.

Sex and Nudity :pointr: Sketches and WIPs :pointr: Sequential Art :pointr: Lineart :pointr: Chibi :pointr: Anthros, Furries, and Animals :pointr: Shotas and Traps :pointr: Manly Men :pointr: Kemonomimis and Other Creatures :pointr: General Yaoi, BL, and Boys :pointr: Misc, Other

:pointr: ANY sex or nudity goes in the Sex and Nudity folder.


:bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletred: Featured :bulletred::bulletblue::bulletgreen:
The featured folder. Works here are selected by admins from deviations that are submitted to the normal folders.

:bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletred: Sex and Nudity :bulletred::bulletblue::bulletgreen:
Any sex or nudity goes here (sketches, WIPS, chibi, etc). That does include censored work as well, unless it was "naturally" censored like this. If you needed to blur or block or smudge something like this, then it belongs in here.
This also includes works that have been cropped but have an accessible UNcensored version somewhere else, as well as clearly outlined/defined or visible genitalia.
As for sex: if there are clearly sex acts being committed, cropped or not, that work goes here also.

:bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletred: Sketches and WIPs :bulletred::bulletblue::bulletgreen:
Sketches, WIPS, and other unfinished products should go here unless they contain gore, vore, sex, or nudity.
We understand that there are completed works that may be entirely composed in graphite. That's fine. If you don't think it belongs here, let us know what you think, and we'll handle it from there.
***Sex, and nudity still trumps the other categories.***

:bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletred: Sequential Art :bulletred::bulletblue::bulletgreen:
This is for things like manga, comics, or any other form of art that is meant to be taken in through a certain sequence.
That does not include single images with words on them that have a 'sequel' or a 'part 2' image or are spin offs/omakes from a series.
***Sex, and nudity still trumps the other categories.***

:bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletred: Lineart :bulletred::bulletblue::bulletgreen:
This is for lineart, not sketches. Please understand that the line between the two is sometimes blurred, and each admin has the right to use their own discretion to decide which is which. There may be some variation due to this.
***Sex, and nudity still trumps the other categories.***

:bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletred: Chibi :bulletred::bulletblue::bulletgreen:
Chibi works go here. That does not include hyper-cute/tiny shota or trap characters.
***Sex, and nudity still trumps the other categories.***

:bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletred: Anthros, Furries, and Animals :bulletred::bulletblue::bulletgreen:
Any beastly or beast-like characters. That includes things such as animal-like Pokemon, ponies, etc. That does not, however, include kemonomimis or gijinkas.
***Sex, and nudity still trumps the other categories.***

:bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletred: Shotas and Traps :bulletred::bulletblue::bulletgreen:
Shota characters and traps. Shotas are characters that are or APPEAR to be young or school age boys.
Traps are males that APPEAR to be female when viewed with clothes on.
***This does not include futanari women, or men with female breasts.***
***Sex, and nudity still trumps the other categories.***

:bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletred: Manly Men :bulletred::bulletblue::bulletgreen:
Bara men, or just rugged boys. Hairy and/or muscled men are welcome here.
***Sex, and nudity still trumps the other categories.***

:bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletred: Kemonomimis and Creatures :bulletred::bulletblue::bulletgreen:
This one is a little tricky. Kemonomimis and other non-human creatures go here. This includes trolls, demons, mermen, nagas, composite creatures, etc. Things like angles, demons, elves, and vampires are welcome, but if you think they pass for human, please feel free to try and submit them elsewhere. This, like sketches and lineart, is subject to variation. Keep in mind that if it has horns, animal ears, or a tail, there's a high chance it'll go here. Pointy ears are not necessarily cause for this category, and neither is marked or oddly colored skin.
***Sex, and nudity still trumps the other categories.***

:bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletred: General Yaoi, BL, and Boys :bulletred::bulletblue::bulletgreen:
This is for your overall, run of the mill stuff. Human couples and groups, singles, and so on. The bulk of submissions will probably be here.
***Sex, and nudity still trumps the other categories.***

:bulletgreen::bulletblue::bulletred: Misc, Other :bulletred::bulletblue::bulletgreen:
This is for everything else. Though it's the last thing on the list, there are certain things that absolutely DO go in this category.
They include:
:bulletblue: Apps :bulletblue: Age progressions :bulletblue: Family photos and Non-romantic Group shots :bulletblue: Flash and Animation :bulletblue: Bios/Refs :bulletblue:  Comparisons  :bulletblue:
***Sex, and nudity still trumps the other categories.***

I didn't see anything on it, but is m-preg safe here?
TheRedEyedMuse's avatar
M-preg is fine as long as there are no female body parts depicted on the male character.

I have a question about my manga The Mist. It has bl/yaoi in it, however it's not the main focus of the story, and it will be a while before the other character is even introduced. Is it still okay to submit it?
TheRedEyedMuse's avatar
You may submit the pages with the BL and Yaoi when they are introduced into the manga.

@TheRedEyedMuse &or landiddy, I have a question about where I should submit.

I am a traditional artist, and I don't draw with great detail, so I'm curious as to where you would put my art. Should it go under Sketches or lineart, and would I be allowed to share in the General BL section?
TheRedEyedMuse's avatar
You only need to submit to the "pending submissions" folder and we shall sort the rest for you. :)
landiddy's avatar
Well, a little while ago, we actually decided that the system was a little too annoying for everyone deal with.
Members can now only submit to the "pending submissions" folder! Don't even worry about where to put it-- we'll get in the right place for you ^^

Just for posterity's sake, the only things that really go in the sketches and lineart areas are things that are described as such.
Every now and then, something 'finished' will go into those folders just because it lacks color, but chances are (if there's color), it will end up in the general section if it doesn't fall into one of the specialized categories :)
UmbraCrux's avatar
Awesome, thank's for updating me on this. ^_^

Aye!!~ I'll follow the Rule carefully!~ OwO/

I honestly preferred the old folders and I think this will just present more problems than it solves, but let's hope not.
landiddy's avatar
I did too, really. :hmm: I always hated when groups split things up so much.
But at least this is "more definitive," and it should stop things from going in the wrong folders.
People kept messing up with the last system and that cut down their submission numbers.
Hopefully this works out for the better.

Thank you for your feedback though! Always appreciate an honest opinion on our changes.

I'm hopeful it will help! Ideally it will. :)
