Hey guys! Hope you're all doing well. here. Sorry for the recent number of expired submissions; computer stuff is now my day job so it's considerably harder to convince myself to do more computer stuff in my off hours, to be blunt.
I am going through and trying to resubmit items which match the group's criteria. And there's a lot of cool stuff waiting in there to be displayed, which is exciting for me and I hope for anyone reading this, also!
However a fraction of the expired deviations... would have been declined if they hadn't expired, as they do not meet submission guidelines for this group. For those deviations I've left them expired and have not commented on their submission process. If you are concerned about an image that you submitted, please check the list below!
Group Rules, just as a reminder:
The image must contain both a woman/girl/femme-identifying person and a bladed weapon. We do not accept guns (well, I'll accept bayonets), bats, or unbladed polearms. We do not accept pictures of women without weapons. Please stop sending them to us. If you must, submit them to the group favorites folder.
We do not accept submissions that violate DeviantArt's guidelines. That means no hate speech, no explicit sexual content or depictions of genitalia, bodily fluids, actual images of self harm or so on.
We do not accept censored versions of the above listed works. If I can tell that the image used to be two characters having sex, I'm going to decline it. Do not link to explicit versions of your works in the artist comments. It's against site rules. There is a time and a place and this is neither.
Please tag your mature content as such. We haven't had a problem with that lately, but since I'm writing the rest of this out...
Lastly, a huge sorry to the people whose items sat in the queue long enough that I'm now hunting through the group logs to find them. You're welcome to resubmit those provided they meet group criteria.
Thanks guys! And thank you for sticking with the group. I look forward to seeing your future submissions: keep making awesome art, and that you have a happy and safe winter!
As a final and unrelated note, a question for group members: I have been considering dividing out our armored folder into two folders - chain-mail/plate-mail bikinis, and standard armor. Is that something you would appreciate? I know I personally don't like sorting through the bikini armor, but obviously a lot of people DO like that, so...
