RULES: Membership

5 min read

Deviation Actions






Submitting Members are artists dedicated to Traditional Art. You may be only Traditional Art artists or multi-medium artists (like our admins) but you have to be producing Traditional Artwork that would be accepted by ALL our submission rules. This means that not everyone will be accepted to membership.
SUBMITTING MEMBERS have established Traditional Art in their gallery that will qualify for acceptance in our group. And will fit ALL membership criteria including ALL submission qualifications.
If you don't qualify for Membership, please be a Watcher -- you will still get to enjoy seeing the artwork submitted!

Every membership request is discussed and voted on by our staff members. There are various factors that effect an approval or decline. Admins are not obligated to divulge private group discussions with members/applicants -- you may ask for an explanation, but you might not get a reply.

Membership Requests with a majority of Deviations in their Gallery where the Deviation Descriptions (aka Artist's Comments) are 100% blank or only contain links to outside websites, will be Declined.

Membership Requests with a majority of Deviations in their Gallery that are against our group's submission requirements, will be Declined. (Submission requirements: traditional-art-only.deviantar…)

Members must be curtious and respectful of other members and group admins. Arguing, harassment and general snark-iness will not be tolerated.

All submitting members must be 13 years of age or older. (We adhere to DeviantART's TOS & Membership requirements. Underage members are in violation of DeviantART's policies and therefore are not accepted for membership in this group.)

"No Advertising" = Spamming group to promote yourself will result in being banned from the group.

Comments on group main page: Please keep the comments on our group's main page in a positive nature.
Making disrespectful comments or tone used in comments left on our group's main page will be hidden and result in being banned from the group.

All submitting members must maintain watching the group and receiving group journals. If you're not watching the group, you're not keeping up with group news.
Submitting members who remove us from their watch will be removed from membership.

:bulletblack: Attn 3D ARTISTS: It's very important that you read this journal before joining, Artisan Craft, Sculpture & Utilitarian submissions.

:bulletblack: Attn ANAMORPHIC ARTISTS: It's very important that you read this journal before joining, Anamorphosis or Anamorphic Art submissions.

:bulletblack: Violation group rules:
:bulletwhite::bulletwhite:  Submitting members who repeatedly break group rules will be removed from membership.

   :bulletblack: To request a submitting membership review, click the "Join our Group" link at the top of our main page.

Hi,
The icon is on the left hand side of the front page under the Group Info box :) If you don't see it that means that group requests are closed for the week and will reopen during the weekend.

Thank you for your interest in our group! :)

Um about how long does it take for a request to join to be either approved or declined?I'm curious because I've submitted a request about 4 or so days ago. Just asking :)
KV-Arts's avatar
Hi,
It varies due to the lives of the administrators because we discuss memberships before voting. During this time of year there is extra work in either school, jobs, or the holiday craziness and we have to prioritize our online duties with our lives.

Thanks :)
