To our CURRENT CONTRIBUTORS, PLEASE do not decline members who post a link to their species in their join request. We CANNOT accept more contributors.
If you DECLINE a member request please comment with a link to this journal stating "Please read this journal for help on joining. Thank you."
For Possible Members, PLEASE let us know in your join request if Contributor Slots are Full. Thank you!
So please, read below and understand that we are accepting Member Requests so long as the FOLLOW the rules below. Thank you.
Many people have had issues with Joining as of late and I thought I would post to clear some of the air on what is happening.
Contributors have gotten filled. We cannot accept anymore contributors at this time and since the founder of the group is not active in the group we have little to no ways to fix this problem since only the Founder has the ability to remove inactive members. Because of this Contributors or people who have their own species really who want to join cannot join as Contributors.
So to make this easier for everyone here is what you should do if you have a species that you have created. When you join, go as a Member and provide a link to your Species and you should (hopefully) be accepted. Members who do not have a species the rule remains the same for you.
The basics of it are now
Contributors when you send your Join request as a member provide a Link to your personal species that you have created. This includes Written OR Visual submissions.
Members when you send your join request you will provide a link to artwork that you have done of someone elses's species.
Any requests that do not provide a link will be declined.
Alternatively there is now a second group that has been opened up where you are welcome to join!
