Rules and FAQs of DBZ-Fever

Journal Entry: Sat May 15, 2010, 5:04 PM

Below are listed the rules to this group. There aren't many, but please be respectful and abide by them.

:bulletpurple: Wanna join?

Simple, no voting required, simply hit join group. (I know I once said that I'd change that, but well...everyone has done a lot better-so to hell with my threat from before.)

:bulletpurple: Wanna submit art to our gallery?

We'd love to have you're art in our gallery! But before you submit anything you must be a member of our group. Though we have some guidelines that we'd like you all to follow so that it's easier on all of us and won't take you more than a few extra seconds.

:bulletorange:Types of Submissions:bulletorange:

Overall, myself and the admins have agreed on only allowing certain type of submissions into the group from now on. The following are the types of submissions that we will allow in the group from now on.

:bulletred: Any traditional drawings of cannon characters
:bulletred: Any digital drawings of cannon characters
:bulletred: Any animations made by you (this is EXCLUDING clips from the show without any stamp borders)
:bulletred: Any stamps made of cannon characters
:bulletred: Any hand made pieces (ex: dolls, plushies, etc.)
:bulletred: Any cosplay of cannon characters

:bulletorange:Things That Will Not Be Excepted:bulletorange:
:bulletred: OCs by themselves(OCs is another way to say Original Character)
:bulletred: action figures, clips, keychains, etc. In short- Anything that is made from the company of DB/DBZ/DBGT
:bulletred: Any photo-manipulated pictures directly from the show or by the professional artists employed for Dragonball Z. This includes edits, wallpapers, screenshots and anything that is blantantly copied and altered. Sorry, but nearly anyone can do that easily.

:bulletpurple: Gallery Rule:

:bulletwhite: Please submit your deviations to the CORRECT Gallery folder. If you do submit something to the featured folder, that can be placed easily be placed in one of the folders, we will deny the submission until it is submitted to the correct gallery folder. Believe me, when I say that it's a lot more work and tiring for us to have to move everything to the correct folders.

:bulletwhite: TWO NEW FOLDERS HAVE BEEN ADDED - "AU Counterparts" and "Battle Scenes". There is plenty of artwork of canon characters that differ from the normal canon. Examples include, but aren't limited to - gender-bending, unrealized transformations (such as ss5 and all that jazz), forms of the characters as something else (I dunno, maybe you drew them all as dogs), fusions that didn't happen or perhaps the characters as you imagine them in Another Universe (hence the title of that folder). Basically anything that could NEVER happen in the realized canon, is accepted in this folder. Battle Scenes are also an intrinsic part of the DBZ series and we have received A LOT of fan art of such scenes. Therefore, it now has it's own folder.

:bulletwhite: Some might ask if there's a limit for how much artwork you can submit....For the time being, we ask that you submit no more than 5 a day per person.  

:bulletwhite: For the content of the pictures you submit of course anyone from Dragonball, Dragonball Z, or Dragonball GT. Also we will allow original characters but please make sure that at least ONE original DB/DBZ/DBGT character is in the picture and is noticeable-they can NOT be smaller/less significant than the OC. OCs by themselves we will not take. If you'd like, you can submit those to :icondragonball-oc-club:, our sister club. :3

:bulletwhite: Also, if you submit any nudity pictures, please from now on, no full nudity unless the rating is accurate and you have to be over 18 to view it. We will deny the pictures if those conditions are not met.

Any questions please a comment and one of us will get back to you A.S.A.P

Question, are we allowed to submit stuff that is from our faves, not our gallery?
maakurinohime Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
You can suggest it to the groups gallery yes, but the favs of our group will be chosen by us. Also, it will only get in to the group if the owner of the image approves it once we do.

Surely. What can I help you with?
EckoSlime Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
well first of all... did you wrote this rules? if so.. please learn the difference between your and you're... ^^
second... i saw that you have a limit per day (5 pics).. i just have 7 pics of dbz... i do must to wait 24 hours to submit the other 2 that wasnt submit'd the first time?

I did write the rules, I do know the difference between your and you're. Please understand that I was writing them while I was pregnant and didn't have my full attention on my grammar.

Yes, the reason why I set the day limit to 5 is because myself and the other admins have lives and can't always vote when we get on here to check our messages. And if the limit is higher, less submissions would go through each day. Plus, I know it doesn't concern everyone but a lot of our members have a lot of dbz submissions and that is what I took into account when I was deciding the limit. When I was first setting the limit, I had it set at 3 but thought that it was too little especially for the people who had a lot of submissions. So that is how I made my choice. I hope you can understand that.

Oh and OC is a shortened way of writing Original Character. I'm sorry if that is not stated in the rules. I have a few days off from work ahead of me so I'll use that extra time to go in and fix the rules so it's easier to understand. Thank you bringing these things to my attention. I hope I answered your questions and if any others; please feel free to ask.

Also, sorry for the late reply. Life is keeping me a bit busier than I thought it would this month due to family concerns.
