I just wanted to highlight some changes to and clarify the submission process here at the Lounge.
Standard Members are now able to submit once per day (changed from 2 per week). Roles ranking higher than standard member have been changed to 7/week. This should make it easier for members to know when they can submit again compared to the previous setting.
All submissions that require voting are voted on by group admins who reserve the right to decline any submission for failure to comply with the rules, or based on quality or originality.
Both quality and originality are subjective factors determined by each individual admin when reviewing a submission. While we do decline submissions on grounds of quality or originality, the most common reason for a submission to be declined is not following the group rules (listed below). Please understand that submissions will be automatically declined if it does not fit the group rules.
Note: the best way to inquire why a submission was declined is to comment on the submission page
A special call out: We are a wallpaper group and will only accept submissions in the Customization/Wallpaper gallery. A submission can be amazing, fit the proper resolution and credit stock but if it submitted outside of Customization/Wallpaper to say the Digital Art gallery it will be declined.
ALL submissions to this Group MUST be in and STAY in "Customization / Wallpaper".
Submissions may not contain images of celebrities, vehicles, movies, TV shows, or games.
Wallpaper packs may only contain multiple resolutions, not various wallpapers.
Submissions must be free and downloadable here on deviantART.
ONLY Legitimate stocks and credits/links must be added in your comments to all images using stocks.Relevant FAQs'
