Gallery Guidelines

These guidelines are meant to ensure the quality of our galleries, as in a nice collection of artworks of a variety of styles and skills, as well as keeping the galleries tidy and ordered to make browsing easier!
This is a work in progress and more things might be added, or other thinsg might be changed. We reserve the right to at any time change the rules as we see fit.

1. What kind of submissions can I contribute?
Most submissions that are complete and relevant to the group.

1.a What is relevant to the group?
Artwork that is either Vale related* or FT related**

2. How to I become a contributor?
You have to recieve an invitation to become a contributor. If you have not been sent one, you can apply for one by sending a note to the group.
To know if you might be qualified, consider this - you create artwork with effort and care and it shows in your gallery. You are familiar with either the FT or The Vale, preferbly both.
Note that if you have only one piece that is relevant for our group, you might recieve a fav instead of a contributors invitation.

3.What kind of medias are allowed?
All medias are allowed as long as they are well made and complete pieces.

4. How do I know which folder to submit my work too?
Refer to the Folders guide at the bottom of this page.

5. Can I put one artwork in several folders?
Yes, if they are relevant for both. For example, you have made a photomanipulation of Jan and Tek - this qualifies it for both the Photomanipulations folder and the FT Related folder.

6.There's not an appropriate folder for my submission, what do I do?
You may suggest a new folder to the mods at the forum or through a note

7. Is it only 'art' I can submit?
No, you may also submit prose and poetry, as well as designs, as long as it is relevant to the Vale and/or the FT!

*Vale related - submissions that have somethign to do with The Vale group.
** FT related - submissions that have portray or imagine something from the actual Firebringer Trilogy.

Special Note - we assume and expect that you have all rights to the submissions you make to this group. Art thefts are not accepted and will be deleted emmediatly.

From the FT
All submission in this folder should pertain to the Firebringer Trilogy, ie NOT your own Vale characters etc. It may be interpretations of situations in the book or portraits of characters in the books.

Here you can submit your photomanipulations, both Vale and FT related.
Ok - it's now months down the line, and the initial skirmish with this virus - is now looking like a case of trench warfare - The change from the "it'll be all be over by Christmas" attitude from World War I springs to mind. But - IFAS and UoTV are holding firm, holding fast and looking to promote fun and support for everyone in these dark times - we're still here after 7 months.
So - first bit of news is - a new staff member !!! We needed someone to help - and there was one person who's been with us through the MSN vale, the move to the new site in December 2008 and has been around and checking in regularly (yes, through the last reboot as well as the current one) - helped with portraits and the QR guide. She seemed like a natural choice - we're really delighted to have her on the team - so congratulations and welcome board Arushitomo (@DEspirit-Designs) !!!
We're also updating our website pages - specifically the QR/Member Pages, but aiming to update the Vale FAQ and so - doing some tidying up and updating.
The RP changes and the Discord are going nicely - probably a bit more slowly than in May/June but there's interesting stuff happening and we're pleased to see people taking to the new freeform style and adapting to the flexibility they offer. We're also celebrating 20 years of the Vale in 2020 - the initial forum was created in February 2000 - so there's plans a-brewing there too !!!!!!

Is this group currently being monitored? I submitted a relevant piece of art twice and both times my submission expired. I have more art I'd like to submit to this group but I don't know if anyone is approving them. Thanks for your help.

Sorry to bother you guys, but do any of you recognize the artwork in :iconsilvermoon45:'s gallery? She's already got one piece of confirmed stolen work, but we're having the hardest time finding the others. I thought if anyone would know it would be you guys! :heart: Thanks for your help!
