This is an absolutely lovely skin created by Para-crazy. The artists yamiN713 and Cataclysm-X are amazing. And that's what we're going for in this club--a legally art driven gallery, favs, skins, blogs, and contests.
Speaking of art, Elena is caressed by one hand and nearly choked by the other. See it? Keep note. Now, at the bottom of this skin, Elena is torn at the neck. This says it all! Argh! All the copyright infringement submissions is choking us! To speak for myself, it's choking me. A lot of work goes into declining submissions because we want to show respect to others. We want to say why we're not accepting them because that material can shut us down.
Some of our members are submitting to these folders (I won't say who because that's confidential):
1. FAN FICTIONS 2. DRAWINGS-PAINTINGS ONLY
It doesn't take too many members to figure they can do this because those folders receive their work. But understand, we've closed down all other folders because we can't accept anymore copyright type of material. This subjects our group to be shutdown.
Unacceptable Submissions: Okay let me help you. The copyright infringement material includes all those gorgeous wallpapers, blends, gifs, animated captured scenes, promotions, posters, photo shoots, photographs, photomanipulations, screen caps, etc. Any type of picture taken of the stars, staff, or characters of The Vampire Diaries is considered copyright infringement. Illegal. Even if other gorgeous sites with these screen caps and type of photos on them, that doesn't mean they are given permission from the photographers or business that produced those pictures.
Soooooo help us here and keep Elena from being choked. Please don't send in those materials at all.
Acceptable Submissions: Original artwork done in oils, acrylic, pastels, charcoal, pencil, watercolor, airbrush or other materials done by hand. Digital done ALL by scratch & by hand, representing oils, acrylics, pastels, charcoal, pencil, pastels, airbrush. ALL THIS IS DONE BY SCRATCH!!!
Here's the rules for the type of literature (you can follow these rules for the artwork, too) to be received.
Deviant Art Policies! As far as rules, here's some help. Click on "More" arrow down symbol in your header. Select ?Help & FAQs. Type in search field at top either "policies" or "art theft" keeps us updated on rules here: help.deviantart.com/ Bare with me cuz I'm an old fogie. Wish I had this help in the beginning.
Adult Material! We've got 13-14 yr-old kids throughout this group, whom we feel responsible for. So please do not submit mature stuff in this group, like cussing, explicit sexual scenes especially naming private body parts, slash, graphic violence, and offensive materials. A good guideline is if the show doesn't show it then we don't either.
Even with a filter, you can still click and see the whole thing. Anything of that nature will be rejected. If you can take the mature stuff out and re-submit, I'll be more than happy to accept it. Thanks for your attention to this.
You wanna know who is chirping here? Yeah, it's crazy me,
