Rules

  • Female characters must be the focus of the submissions

This is a rule that has pretty much always been respected, but we just spell it out for good measure. Of course we are aware that male characters cannot always be avoided, but the focus of the group remains on female characters as the subjects of inanimation. Don't take this as an absolute number but rather as an indication: submissions with male characters should have at least a 2:1 ratio of female characters.

  • Only fully inanimate predicaments, or processes of becoming fully inanimate
This is a group about inanimation, so submissions in which the "victims" are still able to move around like normal don't fit within the theme. This includes robots, as well as animate statues such as golems. Windup dolls are borderline, since they are unable to move while unwinded. Anything else that cannot move on its own is fine.

  • Submissions must fit within the deviantART Terms of Service
This has two main implications :

- For manips, you must either use stock pictures or have permission from the owner of the original picture. Crediting the stocks and/or original owners would be truly appreciated. Also, be careful with so-called "renders", which tend to be cutouts of copyrighted work that the submitter usually does not have permission for, even though they call them "stock". Manips using these won't be considered appropriate for the group either. If you wish to know more about deviantART policies on manips and stock material, please check the following :

- FAQ #157: Can I use things created by other people in my submissions?
- FAQ #193: How do I prove that I had permission to use someone's work? (this is a bit excessive though, we won't ask for so much)
- FAQ #306: Does "Crediting" let me use whatever I want?

- We will not accept submissions that fall within deviantART's definition of pornographic literature or imagery. For clear definitions of those, please check the following :

- FAQ #251: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic literature'; what do you consider this to be?
- FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be?



  • Art theft is a serious offense and members proven to be art thieves will be banned from the group and their submissions removed.

  • For batches of pictures very similar to each other, only submit one of them
This includes :

- Pictures that are basically the same with only changes in the stage of transformation, or changes in clothing, etc.

- Re-renders of the same picture from different angles. An exception is big group pictures in which close-ups may be needed to see details.

- Very long sequences of chronological single pictures that have little visual difference and would be much better off in comic format

  • Only finished works
If you uploaded a work in progress picture that you know you are going to complete later, then we would prefer if you submitted only the final version of the picture. Now, we are well aware that sometimes artists may draw a sketch without any intent to do anything more with it, and then later decide to refine it and do another upload with an updated version. In this case, we would really appreciate if you could remove the work-in-progress submission before submitting the updated version, to keep things clean within the group.

We also expect a certain standard of quality for the submissions. We are not picky and will accept submissions from aspiring artists, but we simply require a minimal amount of effort put into the submissions. If you draw a character without recognizable features, we may choose to reject your drawing.

  • We reserve the right to refuse a submission for any reason other than what is listed above.

I don't know how many people will even see this given that DeviantArt has made it 10 times harder to see updates to about anything these days, but hopefully it will work out...
Anyway, back in 2014, the rules of the group were updated to their current iteration to try and make things more consistent and manageable, as well as less spammy for members and watchers. Part of these changes was the rule that we would only accept submissions that strictly followed the DeviantArt submission policies, which among other things meant that most sexual content was not allowed onto the group.
This has made moderation quite complicated in recent years as there has been quite the influx of submissions of a sexual nature. While most of them go clearly past the line and are easily declined, some of them skirt that line and require some time to figure out whether they are acceptable or not, which may have sometimes felt arbitrary to submitters. Turns out that the DA rules themselves are rather vague on the topic, as quite a few artists have found out over the years.
However, in an uncharacteristic and bizarre move, the platform recently made illustrated sexual content acceptable under their subscription system, meaning that it is technically allowed on the platform now. That said, trying to stick strictly to the "follow DA rules" mantra would be impossible at this point because moderators would not be able to check the contents of submissions that are locked behind a subscription paywall.
In light of this, I thought it could be a good time to ask members how they feel about the current exclusion of sexual content from the group. I believe the situation leaves only two options, so... should sexual content stay excluded from the group, or allowed in at this point in time ?

That's the way the originator/administrator of the group set things up.  Be proactive. You can start your own group and let the others artists who focus on male petrification know about it!

Is there a reason as to why people are turned on by the idea of becoming a statue?
