Group Info

We are a group dedicated to Thomas the Tank Engine & Friends

Rules:
Pictures had to have had some amount of effort put into it.
No Creepypasta Crap - THAT MEANS NO TIMOTHY.
No unedited TVS/RWS Screenshots/Illustrations
No poorly-edited TV screencaps, etc or memes with unfunny "humour". If the meme is clever, then it may be accepted.
No Humanizations (It honestly depends on what it's like, but don't count on your art related to that being accepted anytime soon)
No Ponies.
No Pairings/Sexual (It's sad I have to even say that)
No Crossovers - unless it's acceptable. Ponies, Disney Princesses and stuff like that are not acceptable.
Do NOT submit deviations to the Featured folder. Submit them to the folders that clearly have your submission's subject's name on it. A Trainz screenshot would go in the Trainz folder of course.

If your submissions get declined, then you're obviously violating one of the rules or submitting the file to the wrong folder.

Any questions? Please leave a comment.

Hey there, you may not know me, but I've been one of the few contributors that still moderate this group.

So in the past few years, there's been a lot of rules that have been implemented trying to regulate the group. And you may've noticed that I broke some of them (crossovers, a creeptpasta picture, although I don't consider Shed 17 as such. I seen it more of a fan film, more like the Tobias film from a few years back).

So who am I? Well, I'm Percyfan94 who joined this site for almost a decade and been a fan of Thomas as a little boy. I became a contributor for the group sometime in the early 2010s, and enjoyed it ever since. I kinda lost interest in drawing Thomas after someone said my artwork wasn't improving and lost motivation for it until recently. I've been more into Mr. Men on the site (hence why my gallery is more of that than Thomas), but that's for another time.

Enough about me, let's talk about the group.

I think it's time to revamp the whole group, as I think even some of the rules are a bit extreme, such as "No pairings, no humanizations, no crossovers, etc. I think these rules were made originally after some of the previous owners tried to restrict a few things that some of the members tried to add here, such as trains can't have romantic feelings is a bit too far to get rid of. Granted, the fanbase has a few issues we dealt with, but if people want to ship trains with another train, that's fine by me.

I know rules are made to made things strict, but there's going too loose, while the opposite can be said the same. And I'm not trying to call anyone out, but I think less and less people are leaving the group because of what was changed.

Another thing I noticed is that some people are getting annoyed that some of your post are not getting approved. The thing is that they can get approved automatically if you do on the "Features" folder, rather than the other ones. I'm not sure what the problem is, though it's likely from the last admin being absent for a while. And the problem is that I'm only a contributor. I'll have to see if I can get in contact with Ian and see if he can give me title as founder so I can revamp this whole group.

Don't worry, the group is not dead.
Since there are people who refuse to read the rules and just go on submitting what they want, we implemented something could hopefully whip a bit of discipline into them: Limited Daily Submissions.

As of now, anyone can submit up to 10 submissions at a time. There had been frustrating moments for the admins and the owner in the past and the present with some people submitting literally hundreds of pics/drawings/whatever at once. Do you think it would all just get confirmed the moment you submit them?
Nope.

The admins and owner have to go over every submission to see if it belongs. With 100+ submissions to be checked over, if one were to go over all that, that'll be much of his time he'll never get back.

We, the admins and owner, kindly ask you to read the rules. It's just like what people say: many people don't bother to read anything.
There are lots of Trainz screenshots in the Trainz, MSTS and 3D Modeling folder.

Should there be a folder for Trainz and MSTS content (Or they can have separate folders of their own) while 3D Modeling gets its own folder?

I ask this question since it would be easier for people to find 3D Modeling-related deviations rather than having them in a folder flooded with Trainz screenshots.


EDIT: Since everyone so far said yes and not a single no, I guess it's settled - the 3 subjects will get getting their own folders now.

My written entries keep expiring to this group.

Can something be sorted out?

Thanks.
