Group Rules Update
Hello, Soldiers of Love!
has grown a lot over the past few months and as a result, it's time for a small refresher on our group rules. We are also instituting a new rule to help us deal with members who consistently disregard group rules. Please bear with us as we lapse into Luna mode for a few minutes . . .
Current Traditional-Sailors Submission Rules:
1.) 3 deviations may be submitted per member, per week.
2.) This is a group for Sailor Moon art made with Traditional Media only.
This includes, but is not limited to, paint, marker, colored pencil, pastel, fabric, clay, etc. Your art can have digital elements, but make sure that they are a small part of the work. (E.g. cleanup, borders, lettering, backgrounds, secondary graphic elements.)
2a.) We do not accept: Garage Kits, objects made with a 3D printer.
3.) Please submit artwork of which you are proud.
We welcome all skill levels, but please make sure your art is finished. Art that is scanned or photographed poorly, or is unshaded lines will not be accepted. This means no sketches, no uncolored/unshaded lineart.
4.) Your art must be your own.
Art theft will not be tolerated. The image will be declined, you will be removed from the group, and you will be reported to dA.
5.) If coloring another artist's lineart, make sure that they are credited and that you have permission from that artist.
6.) No official artwork.
Images that are traced or are strongly referenced from official art will be declined. This includes, but is not limited to, anime screenshots, manga panels, artbook pieces, and promotional artwork. (Need clarification of this rule? Check here: [link]
7.) Mature works are accepted
, but must be labelled as mature and comply with dA policy.
8.) We accept OC Senshi and Crossover Senshi
, but make sure that they go into the correct folders. (Original Characters and Crossovers, respectively.)
9.) Submit to the correct folders
. Do not submit to featured. (Need help picking a folder? Check here: [link]
10.) Be good to each other
. No flaming or trolling.
We want to thank everybody who adheres to our submission rules. The vast majority of you do so and it is wonderful and it makes running this group a joy. Unfortunately, we do have a lot of repeat offenders when it comes to not following our group rules. We know that there are something like a gajillion groups on deviantART and that they all have different rules. We know that it's hard to keep straight, but by and large you all do it and we are thankful for you! But we mods are only human. So in the name of
our sanity and efficiency in dealing with submissions, we are instituting a new rule:
New Traditional-Sailors Submission Rule: Members who consistently disregard submission rules will find themselves unable to submit pieces to the group for 30 days. "Consistent disregard" means submitting four pieces in a row that all break group rules. Since we currently limit submissions to 3/week, this means that you'd have to make mistakes across multiple weeks.
The rules most frequently broken are 2-6. The exception to our "consistent disregard" rule is submitting to the wrong folder.
From now on, if you submit to the wrong folder, your submission will be declined, you will be told what the correct folder is, and you will be asked to resubmit. You will not be blocked from submitting if you submit to the wrong folders!
Thanks to everyone who read that! Here's a cookie:

Just a reminder that our Animamates Collab is still going on! So far we have 13 gorgeous and creative entries and we can't wait to see more! Once we've received 30 submissions, we'll release our second list of metals for even more Animamate goodness!
Don't know what I'm talking about or need reminded about which metal you claimed? Check the collab entry here: [link]
