So many of you might wonder why some of your paintings are declined without an explanation, or if explanation is unclear or if your painting has been removed. There are a lot of submissions coming in and we simply don't have time to write a comment to every submission to why it was removed as it is time consuming and tiring to do and we simply don't have enough admins at this point.
So I've summarized all these issues into this post:1. Your submission was added into the wrong folder.
- This means if you add your painting into "Azerothian holidays" folder and it has nothing to do with holidays, we will most likely decline it. Or if you add your Orc into an "Alliance" folder.2. Your submission does not portray a World of Warcraft character / is not about World of Warcraft.
- Pretty self explanatory. If your picture does not have anything to do with World of Warcraft, it will be declined.
- This, unfortunately, includes Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone characters.3. Your submission was wrongly accepted and an admin is correcting the mistake due to one of the two reasons stated above.
- Yet again, pretty self explanatory. We're still human and sometimes make mistakes accepting wrong submissions.Bonus: 4. Your submission expired
- Unfortunately a lot of us admins have either gone very busy with our lives and have no longer time for DeviantART or we've moved up to new platforms to promote our art. We simply don't have time every week to check DeviantART but we'll try our best to keep up with the submissions.
I hope this clears it all up.
If you have any questions, don't be afraid to contact us.
Happy painting and may your strokes never fail! P.S.
We most likely are still looking for new active admins if anyone wishes to take up the reins.
