Clarification


While there are many horned species in the MLP universe/s, this group is primarily focused on ponies with a single, central horn. Specifically - as the group's tagline states - unicorns, alicorns, and changelings. While other variants are welcome, they must be identifiable as a pony and possess the central horn. Unicorn variants of other ponies and pony-like races (seaponies/merponies, zebras, etc) are also welcome. Hybrids are usually welcome, but they are subject to a bit more scrutiny.

And now, the actual rules!

Originality


Art submitted to this group should be yours! Use of free lineart (including coloring book pages) is fine, as are collaborations, but images made with dollmakers or traced from official art (including vectors) are strictly forbidden. Direct submissions of official art or screencaps are also forbidden with the exception of side-by-side comparisons with redraws.

If you didn't/can't ask the original artist, you don't have permission, and it doesn't belong in this group.

If the source is unverifiable - "I don't know who made this base," crediting "the original artist" without saying who the original artist is, etc - it doesn't belong in this group.

Pony hearts, wet mane ponies, "licking" icons and "trotting" icons are covered under this rule as well. It's too hard to police whether they're made from stolen bases or not, so these types of images will not be accepted into the group.

Quality


Images will be judged by the quality of the image, not the quality of the art. Badly-drawn ponies are fine. Badly-drawn ponies on lined paper are not. Badly-customized models are fine. Blurry/pixelated photos of badly-customized models are not. Likewise, nothing should be visible through the paper, and photographed work should have as little "extra stuff" around the image as possible.

Mature Content


No.

This includes violent and sexy art of any sort, even if there's no mature filter on it. Gore, ass, etc, are forbidden.

Submissions that contain links to adult content in the description are also forbidden, though I may sometimes miss this. Please let me know if you see something come into the group that contains these links.

Anthro and humanized ponies


Currently this group does not allow humanized ponies, as it's too difficult to police the difference between background ponies, ocs, and completely non-pony characters drawn as humans in the same style as humanized ponies.

Anthro ponies are allowed on the grounds that they are "ponies with human traits" rather than "humans with pony traits." This means that Equestria Girls fanart is not allowed in this group.

Non-horned ponies and non-ponies


No single species should outnumber horned ponies per submission. For example, pictures of the Mane Six or Cutie Mark Crusaders are allowed because even though pegasi and earth ponies TOGETHER outnumber the earth ponies, pegasi alone or earth ponies alone do not. In images focusing specifically on a horned pony, it will be up to the judgment of the mods whether ponies in the background are to be counted as outnumbering the horned ponies or not.

If the image focuses specifically on a non-horned pony, it will be declined.

Bat ponies will be counted as pegasi. Seaponies (no legs) and merponies (forelegs) will be considered separate species.

This group does not accept:


Adoptables

Written submissions

Ponies "built" in Minecraft

"Anti" art of any kind - character, ship, song, episode, artist, etc

Submissions that "call out" a specific person or group of people

Cutie marks alone, even if they all belong to horned ponies

"Incomplete" comics / comic pages. (Standalone comics are fine)

Miscellaneous


As of May 2017, ponification of real people is forbidden, excluding ponysonas.

Anything under a paid or watchers-only filter will be declined.

Sketchdumps/etc must be consistent in quality per individual submission.

Certain rules may be suspended at the mods' discretion in regards to submissions to the "Accessories, Clothing, and Cosplay" and "Other Crafts" folders.

I take it this is pasted from the earth pony group's version? Needs to be tweaked for unicorns. :p
