Hey all! I know this club has been relatively inactive as far as admins go, but I wanted to take some time to do a bit of house cleaning with the rules and galleries. You may have noticed we have some new admins, and I ask that you please be patient with them as they learn the ropes and requirements of their new job!
There was a bit of a crisis with the folders where too many were created and a bit of chaos ensued. It is the desire of me, the founder, for this group to remain art-focused with some side of fun and fandom. With that in mind, splitting up all the art into focused folders did not seem like a winning situation for that goal. If your main interest is art, you want specific art styles to coagulate in different sections, not necessarily by subject matter. However, with the group having grown as large as it has, I decided to pursue a slight bit more organization. You may notice that now there are text headings for each gallery as you enter them, and in the main gallery of galleries you will see a rules widget. Please take the time to read those. I will also post each of them here for convenience. I have allowed two new folders to emerge: the Justice League and the Extended DC Universe folders. These should allow the focused Young Justice submissions to have a home in the Featured Folder and still allow good art from other favored sources into the club.
There are two next steps for this group:
1. I will organize the galleries (which will take a while) and choose a handful of submissions to be allowed into the fabled Spotlight Folder.
2. I would like to hire some more admins to the Contributor role. If you are interested, please note the group (not me!). You can be admitted by any Cofounder. Your responsibilities will include following the guidelines to accept or reject art or lit (not both) submissions, to maintain order in the group (odd jobs) and to pay attention to the "happenings" in the group (announcements, journals, etc).
Without further ado, here are the updated rules!
General Gallery Rules:
Artistic Talent and Effort
Quick Art (Dump Folder)
Multiple Versions of One Piece
Any large amount of submission to the Dump Folder
Submission of GOOD ART to the Dump Folder
-Tasteless Before-Sex or After-Sex Scenes
(Note: Artistic Nudity and Romance is fine--"art" that is obviously meant to evoke sexual arousal is unacceptable)
-Without extremely obvious ties to the Young Justice Universe IN THE SUBMISSION
If you submit something that does not fit into the category you submitted the piece to, it will be denied without explanation, and you will be expected to resubmit it yourself into the correct folder.
Featured Folder Rules:
Art pieces that showcase Young Justice characters and themes will be placed here. Art pieces that are not specific to Young Justice should be placed in either the Justice League or Other DC folders (including art of the Justice League members that appear in the Young Justice Universe). Art with multiple frames, comedic intention, and text should be placed in the comics folder, not here. Photographs should almost always be placed in the Cosplay and Crafts folder.
Spotlight Folder Rules:
This folder is for exceptional pieces of art that deserve more attention than that of their more common counterparts. This group is based on art, even though it is a fan club, so appreciating good art is part of our culture, and artists should aspire to have their work displayed here. Only the best will be chosen!
Note that no one is allowed to submit art directly to the spotlight folder. The admins will decide amongst themselves on a semi-regular basis which ones submitted to other folders are worth displaying here.
Comics Folder Rules:
This gallery is for ALL submissions that fit into the following categories:
-More than one frame
-Of comedic value as opposed to artistic value
-Has speech bubbles or any significant amount of text displayed which is not WITHIN the art (captions as opposed to a book with a title on it)
This gallery is NOT for memes or character sheets (ESPECIALLY OC's).
Cosplay and Crafts Folder Rules:
This gallery is for ALL submissions which must be photographed in order to be submitted.
Any explicit content will be rejected.
Justice League Folder Rules:
Due to the nature of this group, it is obvious that those joining are interested in the core Young Justice group. However, it is recognized that the Justice League plays a large role in Young Justice. Therefore, art pieces that meet the following criteria are to be submitted ONLY to this gallery...
-Meets the criteria of the Featured Gallery Submissions with the exception of character content
-Features a member of the Justice League
Submissions into this folder are likely to be more scrutinized than those to the Featured folder.
Extended DC Universe Folder Rules:
Like the Justice League Folder, this folder exists to provide an area where art featuring characters that do not appear in Young Justice (but perhaps we all wish did) can be shared. Standard rules apply, and only art that would normally be accepted into the Featured Folder will be accepted here. DO NOT submit any art to this folder if it would be accepted in any other folder (other than dump).
Literature Folder Rules:
Any submissions entirely made up of text are to be submitted to this folder, including but not limited to
Each piece will be read by a Lit Admin and checked to make sure it meets DA standards before admission into the group. The pieces must include a STRONG Young Justice theme.
Dump Folder Rules:
This folder is for your use. Any submissions will be automatically accepted, but all submissions will appear in all members' news feeds. If you submit something that violates the terms of agreement with DA, you will be kicked out of the group without notice.
If you are caught submitting large amounts of "trash" including but not limited to any art in no way related to the subject of Young Justice, you will be warned prior to dismissal.
