EDIT 2 - 4/5/17: The folder is up and working as it should be now! It will be expected that people will put their works in the right folders without a hitch! Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience!
Hey everyone, Serenity here~
Rainbowthefox and I have decided to create a new folder for 'Sketches and Uncolored Art'.
* - This will include stylized drawings which involve black, white and gray only variants of color (one/two color washes), and those with a little color (single colored BGs, colored *lines*, and nothing else do NOT count) or none at all besides discussed. Shippings, AUs, Crossovers will be included in this with the exception of work for NSFW, Comics, and Asks which belongs in its appropriate folder.
As for general submissions, we have been recently declining more than accepting because people have not been submitting art to the right folders. Sometimes I just accept then move it because I don't want to bother.
It's quite tedious to go through and a little bit frustrating. I myself have been pretty generous by telling people where to put their folder to be actually accepted, but I notice that a lot of the same people just making the same mistakes and saying their thanks (or the typical 'okay'?) then doing it all over again for the next time.
We have rules and we have a journal that explains where everything goes, especially a link that tells someone how to submit to the group and right folder in general. There's no excuse. If there's confusion, it's easy to send a note to us and ask, or ask us before you submit it.
Or just put it in the 'I don't know where this goes' folder and we'll handle it for you. I have been lenient on this and at some point, I was personally deemed as a spammer because a person who didn't bother to pay attention to these expectations and rules submitted a lot of submissions, so I replied to all of them where they should go and they got mad.
So, in that regards, I will stop telling people where they should put their submissions from now on (maybe every once in awhile I'll do it) and decline it unless they ask for the reason if they can't figure it out themselves. It's all there for you (and if it's not, please address it to us) and I will point out the why(s) while referring to the journal which will explain it and something I use as a checklist guide on where it goes. You can also use the other submissions in the folder as examples and compare it to yours to figure it out as well.
Instead of getting defensive asking us why your Undertale artwork has been declined, ask why to yourself that it was. I guarantee 99.9% will be because you SUBMITTED IT TO THE WRONG FOLDER unless said otherwise. Instead of getting upset and uptight, ask politely where it should be submitted then if you don't honestly know.
WE WILL TELL YOU, but there's a journal that explains it all and a gallery that you can also use as a reference with the other submission in it as examples.
If we make any mistakes, we will make it known (or handle it ourselves) and/or personally apologize for it because we (especially myself) do not like making mistakes, but we are only human.
In that regards, mistakes do happen and we understand this as well. If you genuinely, on accident, submit it to the wrong folder, we won't hold it personally against you!!! It's just a lot of frustration on our part. We hope you all understand this for our sake.
With that said, here's an awesome music video by v0idless and we wish you the best. ---
