We often get asked about what is allowed in the Wyngro group in terms of NSFW stuff, especially when it comes to blood and violence.
While our rules has always been “follow DeviantArt’s rules”, by adding mature filters when needed, and blood and such is generally allowed, I wanted to take this time to talk about some more sensitive topics and what kind of stuff you should think harder about before you do it, or simply stay away from entirely.
DEATH - Can I kill my Wyngro off?
“Unfortunately” you cannot kill your Wyngro characters! But do not fret, it will eventually be an option. *GASP*
Murder, violence, and Wynsiph themes
We’ve been seeing a lot of brutality lately depicted in gallery art as of late, which brings us to our next topic. What is allowed in terms of killing Wyngrew (non official or otherwise), pets, living things, etc.
I want to make it clear that Wyngrew are NOT WILD ANIMALS and they have the brain capacity of a human being. Murder is not an instinct (In fact they are programmed and raised to avoid killing) and should never be taken casually in the group and its lore.
In the case of murder especially, I wanted to inform people that as of right now, Wynsiph and the world that Wyngrew live in remains a “Slice of Life” themed group, so murder simply does not have a common place here and makes little sense. Now give us more time to open the world up a bit more and we’ll see more possibilities.
How to be a badass Wyngro (AKA: How to portray violence)
If you’re simply feeling edgy and just want to show violence for the mere fact of being unique or different, we strongly encourage you to give it more thought!
If your character’s development has led down this path and a lot of thought has been put into the act, that’s a different story. Using violence for story arcs is great! We just want it to be portrayed in a tasteful way that makes sense and not “just because it’s cool.”
Wild or “Feral” Wyngrew
Having your character raised by wild animals to make them 'feral' wouldn't be likely to make them extremely aggressive towards other Wyngrew. Wyngrew are much like humans, and even a person living in the wild likely wouldn’t be attacking/maiming civilized people they come in contact with. They would be more likely to try hiding or observing them from afar, unless threatened. They can recognize their own species and still have community instincts.
Snoot Boops & Wynglings
A “Snoot boop”, as they say, is the act of two Wyngrew rubbing their noses together. In Wyngro society this is compared to kissing. (Although kissing is certainly possible, the dang dinosaur snout can make drawing it a bit difficult, so snoot boops are usually preferred)
We would gently like to ask that people do not draw their Wynglings passionately snootbooping, as it’s comparable to small children french kissing. An accidental snoot boop or one where they’re laughing about it or have no idea what it means is fine, but keep it innocent and leave the snoot booping to the adults please!
Wyngro Lore & what is considered canon/uploaded to the group
People are welcome to draw non-canon wyngro art, as long as they are not counted for wyns or uploaded to the group!
Group uploads should be limited to canonical lore, so please leave out pop-culture character inclusions and such when submitting things to the group!
Things that would realistically be found in the world are fine, but things like modern tech should not be portrayed in the group.
Thanks for taking the time to read this!
Wyngro keeps getting more and more dense with lore and world stuffs, and we’re happy you guys are so interested in it! Thanks for hearing us out on all this information, and remember to just keep things tactful and reasonable! Thanks everyone!
