First thing newcomers need to know is the difference between a Member and a Contributor. Members join to show their support and watch the group. They are NOT allowed to contribute art, however, joining is automatically approved. Contributors have to be approved by an Admin, but they are allowed to contribute art to the folders our group has provided. Anyone who joins as a Member may request a promotion to Contributor at any time.
Now, onto the technicalities:
Welcome one and all to the very first Troidzone group on DeviantArt! We hope you enjoy your stay.
Since Troidzone is still in its very early stages, we welcome all members to our group with open arms. There are only a few basic rules to follow.
Please submit all art to the appropiate folders.
The only images we won't be accepting are images drawn on LINED paper (grid paper also counts as 'lined') and images that look like cheap, last minute MS Paint doodles.
For non-digital works, if you are using a camera in place of a scanner, please try to ensure that the quality is acceptable before submitting.
Please keep in mind that Troidzone is a teen-friendly comic. Therefore, there is an invisible PG-13 rating on any picture that comes into this group.
No detailed nudity. (Seriously, guys. There is no excuse for this.)
No excessive gore or language. Please, try to keep it clean. (If the blood you have in your picture is substantially more than what shows up in the comic, then don't be surprised if your picture is rejected.)
Please be sure to include Maturity tags where appropriate.
Please be kind to fellow members. Regardless of the religious/political beliefs of the characters, Troidzone does not embody or allow room for talk/debate of religion, politics or anything else that doesn't qualify as 'dinner time with the in-laws' conversation. If you and someone else have a disagreement, please take it to Notes.
No chatspeak in the group. Please and thank you.
