Something else that's kinda making the rounds are pieces being submitted based on a new episode that just aired. To air on the side of caution we ask that members refrain from posting artwork from new episodes that might spoil things for others until at least a few days after broadcast (at most 3-4 days) to give everyone as much of a chance to catch up and not have something ruined for them. I know it's hard to hold back, but no one likes to look in their inboxes and have surprises let out of the bag. And it's especially hard for mods (like me who haven't seen the new episodes yet) who have the story spoiled by eager beavers.
Just a heads up, it's something that will be implemented into the group guidelines from now on.
In the last week I've noticed that we've been getting a lot of sketches, doodles, and other types of unfinished work being submitted into the group. This kind of thing needs to stop, we try to follow an unwritten (but should be common knowledge) rule to only submit work that is finished and you want to have featured for others to enjoy.
We do actually visit the pages of works being submitted here as a part of making sure things are being submitted to the right place, but all too often we see a lot of people making comments to their submissions being the following:
"This is crap, I don't like it"
"Something I doodled"
"I sketched this out, might finish it later"
Or being an updated version of a previously submitted piece that's in the gallery. (we try to not take doubles of the same piece of art)
If you guys can't take your work seriously, we're not going to feature it here. We want everyone who submits to this group to be proud of their work and submit the best of what they have. Why should accept work even the original artist doesn't like? Other groups have their standards sure, but here we try to feature work everyone can be proud of.
I know I seem to be harsh about this stuff, but for the sake of trying to run this place as smoothly as possible, I try to keep you guys informed of whatever the mods and I see as something that might impede progress. I know a lot of members leave the group as well after having something declined, but try to talk to us first before doing so, because we will try to give you a reason as to why it was. Some of us might be busy with jobs (or in my case hurricane prep) but we will try to get back to your inquiries.
Thanks for your continued patience!
