Not legitimate stock tips /how to reportMany people ask me what this term means ¨not legitimate stock¨

1 - a long time ago, I used the stock from pixabay in some premades. and unfortunately I did not know that this site is not reliable, so I was denounced and I had all my contents posted in stock removed.

New Challenge-Jokers, Jesters and HarlequinsNEW CHALLENGE- Jokers, Jesters and Harlequins
Greetings Castle Dwellers...
Lately, I've been seeing a lot of inspiring artwork using these types of models and since for many here, we're moving into Summer. That makes me think of carnivals, circuses and such. So let's have some fun working with models that fit. Game on!
Here are the details:

:bulletred: Your work MUST feature a Model , NOTE: We suggest you refrain from using The Joker as represented by Heath Ledger. Create your own story.  
:bulletred: There are a lot of stock choices to choose from in the realm of jokesters etc and lots of genres can be represented so be creative,  there are MANY ways to interpret this challenge. Go for it! Work a clever concept for us.
:bulletred: Artwork must be a new image
:bulletred: Media photomanipulations and digital mixed media.
:bulletred: Challenge ends on July 9 2018 at midnight PST (the clock on the home page never seems to work t
New Challenge- WHAT LIES BENEATHGreetings Castle Folk...
What lies beneath your pillow or bed? And what lies beneath the lake or ocean? What lies beneath the soil? These are just a few of the concepts that can be illustrated with our new challenge. Let's get our creative gears moving to imagine WHAT LIES BENEATH, OK? :thumbsup:
:bulletred: You are NOT required to use a model BUT we recommend it.
:bulletred: You must include in your description what you are illustrating.
:bulletred: You are only limited by your own imagination, show us your best creative effort.
:bulletred: Artwork must be a new image
:bulletred: Media is WIDE OPEN, options for the type of media include collage, traditional media, digital.
:bulletred: Challenge ends on July 9th, 2018 at midnight PST (the clock on the home page never seems to work to show that it's not due by noon ;p)
:bulletred: You MUST include our group icon and the challenge theme in your description. If this is missing we MAY accept the piece but it will not be considered for priz




Joint-Stock Needs You!

Thu Mar 16, 2017, 11:48 AM

We Need You!

Hiya fellow stockers,
We are looking for some more admins for this group, which means we need you to help us!

We are looking for help in the following areas:

  • Requesting Artwork: Admins are responsible for requesting a minimum of 10 stocks per week into our galleries.
  • Promotion: Admins to help us invite new members into the group, affiliate/network with other stock groups throughout DA, contribute links of interest like contests and challenges
  • Housekeeping: Admins to help for Gallery and Favorites organization (aka keep them nicely sorted). Help manage main admin team, replying to notes, accepting submissions etc.

#: several
Language: Fluent English is required, additional languages are welcomed

In addition we are looking for people who can come aboard as Co-Founder to all three of our stock groups.

:iconjoint-stock: :iconclear-cut: :iconfantasy-stock-group:

 The main admin team on all these groups consists of me, Phyllis aka TheStockWarehouse (also known as WDWParksGal-Stock) and Anthony aka supersnappz16. While each group has some more admins we want to widen the core circle to 5 maybe 6 admins.

Job Description: Co-Founders are given full control and are able to run the group in the Founder's absence , so you need to be trustworthy.

All 3 group are well-settled and run smoothly, however you need to be able to check regularly and handle things that need attention at the moment.
You need to know dA's stock rules as well as the ones for each group plus the gallery structure of each group. It's probably helpful if you are a stock provider yourself, however it is not required.

If you are interested, please send a note :typer: revamp to poserfan-stock stating
  • What you want to do in the group. (You can pick multiple roles if you like)
  • Why you think you should be considered.
  • One suggestion on how you think Joint-Stock could improve.

We're looking forward to meeting you!! :excited: revamp... again.

Thoughts, suggestions welcome. :bademoticon:
