UPDATE: any OBVIOUS submissions that get misplaced will no longer be treated lightly anymore. PLEASE READ THIS JOURNAL ENTIRELY TO AVOID GETTING WARNINGS/BANNED FROM OUR GROUP!!
(Examples of this problem further down below)
So, I’ve ( SyndralValor ) recently been way too busy (re)moving submissions around in folders because a lot of it is misplaced. I have decided to contact Sh3llular about the misplaced submissions and have come to an agreement we’re going to be a little more harsh on the rules. Here are a few things to take note of:
You get a warning if:
-You post your species in the wrong folder
-You continuously post your submission in the “I don’t know” folder, even though it is clear your species belongs in another folder.
-Your submission is NOT an Original Species
-You only use our group to promote anything else but species
You will get banned from the group if:
-You continue to post your species in the wrong folders, even though we’ve warned you.
-You continue to post your species in the “I don’t know” folder even though we’ve moved your species to the correct folder.
-You continue to submit Non-OriginalSpecies art.
--You only use our group to promote non-species content
So, please, please look where your species has been placed, or use the list below to determine where your species belongs. We will move submissions if you make a mistake and so forth, but we will no longer move any “obvious” submissions that “obviously” belong in another folder.
Person claims their species is Canine, but submits in in “other”.
Submission has "Anthro" in their title but just goes to submit it in "I don't know".
A species has been placed in Aquatic for obvious reasons but goes to place it in another folder while their species is obviously aquatic.
I do not treat such mistakes lightly because it is just a matter of seconds to put it in the right folder and a bit of logical thinking.
These mistakes are removed from our gallery. Sorry, but I am not going to do someone else's work, even if its only a matter of seconds.
Please do also clarify your submission is part of a species. Failure to do so will result in removal. This ISN'T a random adopts group!!
If you have trouble finding out where your species belongs, you can use the list below, or submit in the “I don’t know” folder. Please make sure to look where your species has been placed afterwards so you can submit to the correct folder in the future. If you don’t understand why a species is in a cartain folder, please note the group about it!
If you wish to discuss with one of the group admins about a warning or ban (like, why you got the warning etc) please be civil about this and understand its us just performing the role we have as admins. If you wish to discuss about where your species belong or if you don't understand what you did wrong then please understand we're just keeping the rules in mind and we'll treat everyone equal. That means we won't just make an exception for 1 person and let them slip.
Oh and swearing during any of these discussions is FAR beyond from tolerated.
Also, do not use this group to promote non-species content only. You do not have to remove adoptables/auctions etc just because they're closed. We don't mind if folders cluster up, as long as its full with Species only content.
While it is fine if you remove 1 or 2 submissions, doing it too many times will be seen as if you are only use our group to get attention.
We focus on gathering Species art. Do not worry about folders clustering up! Its exactly what we're aiming for, actually! (wow, I'm falling in repeat...)
(All examples used were submissions from this group’s gallery)
Weekly Species reviews only. Submissions not allowed
Also a closed folder. Solemly for Morph, our mascot.
Canine species include species that look like dogs, wolves and foxes. Most canine species are carnivores and have fur all over their body, their tail most often is fluffy and have long ears.
Canines with wings that are no hybrid belong here.
Feline species include species that look like house cats and wild cats, such as lions and cheetahs. Feline have pointy ears and often have thin tails.
Felines with wings that are no hybrid belong here.
Reptile Species include species that resemble snakes, crocodiles and lizards. Reptiles are often covered in hard scales and most lay eggs on dry land. Any type of dinosaur species belongs here as well. Dragons however, do not. They have a separate folder.
Bird species are species that have wings and beaks and resemble any type of bird like owls and humming birds. That your creature has wings does not mean they belong here!
Any species that stands on two feet and is humanlike. Species that are partially human (Like Centaurs) also belong here. Robotic species on two legs also belong here!
Anthro is another word for Human-Like. It doesn't matter if your species is Canine, Feline etc. Most Anthro Species are (nearly) as smart as actual humans and can perform similair actions.
Species with hooves. Like horses, sheep and cows belong here. Any species resembling ponies from the My Little Pony series belongs here! Any Pegasus-like species belongs here as well.
Species that resemble frogs and salamanders, or live majority of their life in water. Amphibious species have a soft skin and lay eggs in water.
Any other water-dwelling creature that is not a amphibian or a reptile. Species like this include fish, sharks and dolphins/seals. Any species with fins that is not a reptile/amphibian belongs here, even if your species is a dragon. If your species is canine/feline etc but have fins, they belong here!
Rodents include rabbits, hamsters and mice. Rodents have two long front teeth and are usually small.
As soon as you include any type of food within your species, they are considered food species!
Any species revolving around plants or actually being a plant belong here.
Any dragon belongs here unless your dragon has fins. Dragons are mythological and therefore have their own folder apart from Reptiles.
Species that resemble bees, butterflies and ants belong here. Even though spiders are not insects, they belong here.
Species that exclusively come from outer space and not earth. That your creature may have celestial parts may not automatically make them an alien.
Does your species belong in 2 folders at the same time? Is your species a mix of two creatures? Then your species belongs here. Species that have hooves for only part of their paws also belong here.
Does your species belong in more than 2 folders or in none at all? Then they belong here. Any species that is a mix of more than 2 animals belong here. Mechanical feral species also belong here unless give a good explanation why they belong somewhere else.
Events, Raffles, etc:
This speaks for itself. Species events (YCH, MYO Event, Raffle, Etc) belong here. If an adopt gets taken/raffled/given away, please make it clear the adopt is CLOSED so it can be moved to the right folder. You don't have to remove it from the group!
Journals and Written Works:
All journals belong here, from customs to MYO journals.
Any literature submissions go here, too.
It may happen that a certain species has several subspecies that belong in different folders. Like one of your characters having fins, while usually your species has none. You have to make clear it is a subspecies though!
