Welcome Welcome~!

MLP-FiM Chatroom

Welcome to the official My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Group! We're so happy to have you!


Now, for the rules!

:pointr:

Mature Art



We do not allow mature art! What does this mean, exactly? What are the standards, you may ask? Simple!

If it doesn't belong in a 90's Disney movie [Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, etc.] then it doesn't belong here! This means, specifically:

:bulletblue: very, VERY small amounts of blood. We're talking a maximum a cut on the arm. For example, if Scootaloo crashes her scooter and she has a cut on her face or something. That's OK. Dismemberment? No way!

:bulletblue: Shipping is allowed, but nothing overtly sexual. Kissing, hugging, cuddling, snuggling. All these things are perfectly acceptable. Anything beyond that, No way!

:bulletblue: Character death is allowed, but no blood and their eyes must be closed. Like said previously, Disney Standards. We're talking Mufasa-esque at the worst here, fillies and gentlecolts.




The Featured Folder is still locked to members. Everything else is open!

If you have any questions about the folders, where to find things, feel free to note or comment the group, or any of the staff. They will be happy to help you.




:pointr:

Quality Standard


We are one of the biggest groups on all of DeviantART, and because of that we get over 2,000 submissions a week. Because of that, we have a Quality Standard, to cut down on what actually gets into the group, and therefore into YOUR inbox's. Not everyone's work will be accepted, but you can take a look at our affiliates who will gladly take everyone's work, regardless of level.


:bulletblue: We have a minimum standard for what we will and won't allow into the group. Such things are posted with examples in the Admin Area, where the moderators are split into teams to judge certain types of art. [Digital, traditional, Artisan Crafts, Customs, Vectors, etc.]

:bulletblue: If your art is declined, and the moderators did not comment on it, then your deviation most likely does not meet the quality standard. This can be a hard pill to take, but please understand it's just as hard to give, so we tend to not comment on the deviation submission. People who cause a fuss about the Quality Standard will not be indulged.


:bulletblue: Please keep in mind that we do not accept Pony Creator pieces. These may be great for creating an initial reference of your character for you or an artist to draw from, but they will not be accepted into any folder.

:pointr:

Vectors


We

DO

allow Vectors in this group! There is no special folder for them; sort them by character like any other type of art. Thank you!


:pointr:

Behavior


As a general rule, we expect our members to be fairly well behaved in the group area. Frustration is understandable in some instances, but please to not abuse our good humor.


:bulletblue: Don't be a brat and there won't be any trouble, basically. The staff is held at a standard to treat our members with respect. We expect the same from all of you.

:bulletblue:
Do NOT comment asking why your deviation was declined. You will be ignored, and your comment will be hidden. If your post a link to a deviation you're wondering about, it will be marked as Spam.

:bulletblue: Our mods work hard to go through the massive quantity of submissions we receive each day. As such, on occasion some things slip through the cracks for reasons ranging from misclicks to simple exhaustion clouded judgement. If you see a piece that you feel doesn't meet our criteria, please drop us a note in the group telling us where in our gallery we can find it OR send a note with that information to Wooden-Flashlight and it will be looked into ASAP!

Moderator Applications OPEN!

Journal Entry: Wed Jun 10, 2015, 6:11 PM
Hello all! It's been a while, I know. Currently we're in desperate need of moderators, so I'm going to open slots again for people to come volunteer to vote. Since summer is here and a lot of people are off on break from college and other schools, I thought now would be the perfect time to open them.


How do I become a mod?

Send me Wooden-Flashlight a Note. The application format is listed below, but please read the types of mods and their roles first.

We need mods who will vote on specific types of art. The Mod types are broken down into teams:

-Digital Art Team
-Traditional Art Team
-Customs Team
-Plushies Team
-Artisan Craft Team
-Mixed Media team
-Fan-Fiction team

We get _hundreds_ of submissions a day that need to be voted on by _at least_ two people. They need to be judged for their quality standard, maturity, and to make sure it's not theft, or used without permission- or generally breaking the rules of the group or DA. I'll explain the general job of each team.

Digital Art Team
This is the team that votes on digital art, only. These people must be well versed in digital media to be able to properly judge quality. These people need to be able to determine the difference between low-quality art and differing styles, in addition to making sure no art theft happens. There may be a secondary team of people who work on Vectors only, but at this time I don't think that's needed.

Traditional Art Team
Votes on traditional art, only. Must be versed in traditional media. This group must look out specifically for bad scans and/or photos of traditional art. Even if the art itself is up to quality, a bad photo or scan of a piece will not be allowed. Scans of art with lines from notebook paper are also not allowed.

Customs Team
Must vote on custom MLP toys! This counts only for those made from a bait- a canon toy that is modified. Must be able to verify that it is is good-quality custom.

Plushies Team
These guys vote on our plushies! Basically to keep WIPs and low-quality photos into the gallery.

Artisan Craft Team
Vote on all artisan crafts that aren't customs or plushies. Statues, paper crafts, jewelry, clothes. Very wide subject range. Again, no bad photos or WIPS.

Mixed Media Team
For voting on mixed media; for example, a digital pony put into a photograph, or even a canon toy's photograph taken. This is basically the "other" and many people will be put into this team as well.

Fan-Fictions Team
The hardest mod, to be honest. These people must READ every fan-fic that comes into our inbox and judge it's quality and if it belongs in the group. Determine if it is within our rules [for maturity, subject matter, and folder it belongs in.] We need a large-ish team for Fan-fics so that not 1-2 people are reading fics. We still need a two-vote system for these.

To put in your mod application, send me [ Wooden-Flashlight ] a note with your application. Format below.

Go ahead and put in your application! You don't know until you try, after all!
Thank you all for your patience as we transition into the new staff. We should have efficiency back in the next week or so.

Do you need to have a certain art quality to get your art in?

Hi Everypony, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but I thought I should help spread the word. It's about a kid I read about on EQD that could use some help. She has a rare type of Brain cancer but she's still fight for every new day. So spread the world, with her birthday coming up I bet all of us together can help her have a Birthday that Pinkie Pie would be proud of. .:Dwww.equestriadaily.com/2016/08…
