Welcome to the Quenta Silmarillion, sit yourself down by the fire and hear the stories of old.

Hello people, I decided to change a bit our club rules.

To be precise - one rule: to submit a deviation one no longer has to be a member of the Silmarillion-Club.

:bulletpurple: What does it mean?

It means that now artwork of non-members can be invited to our gallery. It will go through the same voting process as every submission and has to follow our Art submission guidelines silmarillion-club.deviantart.c… After admins vote such invitation has to be accepted also by the creator of invited artwork.

ATM it works on invitation only and I think I'll leave it this way. It means you members can invite artworks to our gallery as long as they fulfil the guidelines. But please wait with it till we check technical details, as we don't want to spam other artists with multiplied invitations. Till then note group with your suggestions silmarillion-club.deviantart.c… :email:

:bulletpurple: Why have I changed it?

There are people at dA who do have sometimes one or two Silmarillion inspired pieces and are not interested in joining a club just to add one image to club's gallery. Which is reasonable. While I am interested in building here a great collection of The Silmarillion inspired art available at dA. I guess we have all gathered here to see various visions of Arda and events from the Silmarillion, haven't we? That's why I decided to open gallery gates wider :)

:bulletpurple: Opinions?

Remember you can discuss club rules with us. Also if you think of some benefits club members could have, please let us know.

How about Silmarillion related essays, articles? Have you got any? Are they scientific, maybe humorous? We're working on something, but members could take a part in it, either.
Are there any topics you would like to talk about with other club members? Any activities missing in the club?
Journals are our forums, so don't stay silent, share your thoughts :#1:

:bulletpurple: Finally a usual reminder.

All the previous pre-conversion club members are watchers right now. If you just want to watch the club it's fine. But to be a member you need to join the club again by clicking joining button (automatic approval).

The same goes for your artworks - you need to re-submit them again as the old submissions are gone. We had favourites system based gallery before the conversion, now we've got much better gallery system, please use it :)

Regards,
Sirielle
