To be more clear about folders

Journal Entry: Wed Feb 15, 2012, 5:23 PM
This is a REPOST to keep this reference on the front page of the group for all to see.

Okay, I've noticed that we've been getting most of our deviations being submitted in the wrong folder. So here's a step-by-step of everything so everyone knows where to submit what.

Main Folders


>Sub Folders
>Sub-sub folders

Featured


This folder is locked to everyone but Co-founders and myself.

Mane Six And Spike


Deviations that should go into this folder:
Artworks only, with two or more of the mane six and Spike. For example.

Pictures of Twilight and Spike go here. Pictures of all the mane six. Pictures of Rarity and Applejack, Ect, Ect. If it has two mane six and/or spike and no one else, it goes here.
Examples: :thumb268363835: Closeness by marikaefer Spike Hugs Fluttershy by FrankRT

>Spike
This should only contain pictures that are Spike ALONE, or with a pet such as Owlolicious, Gummy, Angel, Smartypants, ect.

>Fluttershy
This should only contain pictures that are Fluttershy ALONE, or with a pet such as Owlolicious, Gummy, Angel, Smartypants, ect.

>Rarity
This should only contain pictures that are Rarity ALONE, or with a pet such as Owlolicious, Gummy, Angel, Smartypants, Tom, ect.

>Rainbow Dash
This should only contain pictures that are Rainbow Dash ALONE, or with a pet such as Owlolicious, Gummy, Angel, Smartypants, ect.

>Applejack
This should only contain pictures that are Applejack ALONE, or with a pet such as Owlolicious, Gummy, Angel, Smartypants, ect.

>Twilight Sparkle
This should only contain pictures that are Twilight Sparkle ALONE, or with a pet such as Owlolicious, Gummy, Angel, Smartypants, ect.

2+ Characters


This folder is for anything that doesn't fit in Mane Six and Spike, CMC, or Minor Characters. Such as, a picture with Rainbow Dash and Scootaloo. The Mane Six and the Princesses. Ect, Ect.
Examples: costume contest 2 by neodarkwing costume contest by neodarkwing MLP Apple siblings by Pandablubb

Minor characters do not belong here. If a minor character is with a CMC or a Mane Six and/or Spike, then it belongs here. In addition, Discord/Minors and Discord/Princesses belong here as well. All pictures that only have Minor characters in them go into the Minor Characters folder, if there's more than one of them.

Discord


This folder is for Discord, and only Discord. He should be alone and not have any other characters with him. If he has any companions, it belongs in 2+.

Cutie Mark Crusaders


This main folder is only for Scootaloo, Sweetie Belle and Applebloom. The main folder should only contain pictures of all three, or two of the CMC's. No other characters belong here, if there are other characters with the CMC's, then they go in 2+.
Examples: :thumb266271854: The CMC by JavKiller Let's Find our Cutie Mark by Corina93

>Sweeite Belle
A folder for pictures that ONLY contain Sweetie Belle.

>Scootaloo
A folder for pictures that ONLY contain Scootaloo.

>Applebloom
A folder for pictures that ONLY contain Applebloom.

Derpy Hooves and Dinky


This folder is for pictures of Derpy alone, Dinky alone, and pictures of them both together. Pretty straight forward.
Examples: Derp from Above -Alternate- by Smashinator :thumb267969514:

Minor or Background Characters


This folder is our biggest by far, so there's a lot going on here. First of all, things that belong in the main folder are thusly: Pictures that contain two or more Minor Characters, with the exception of Lyra and Bonbon, since they have a join sub-folder together. In addition, pictures of minor characters who do not have a sub folder belong here. IE: Silver Spoon, Diamond Tiara, Carrot Top, Gummy, ect.
Examples of both: The Mane Background Ponies by hombre0 Carrot's Golden Harvest by TwilightFlopple silver spoon by rainygami Mayor and Berry punch by MaurinCL luna royal guard by rainygami Background Thriller by Gaz-Works Twist Reveals her Cutie Mark by ronaldhennessy

>Pipsqueak
This folder is only for pictures of Pipsqueak/Pip the Pirate!

>Gilda

Original Characters


This is where you get to show off your Original Characters! Please note that we do NOT take pony-creator images at all! Also to be included in this folder is the character Surprise, as well as Lauren Faust's Alicorn character.

>OCs with FiM characters
This is for your pictures of your OCs and canon characters.

Human or Anthro


Here is where you would put any humanized or anthropomorphized ponies. Any character goes here. If it's human or anthro, no matter who it is [even OCs] it belongs here.

Princessess


Our two favorite Princess Alicorns belong here, in any picture they are together. Any picture with Princess Luna and Princess Celestia belongs in this folder.

>Princess Celestia
This is where pictures of Celestia alone belong.

>Princess Luna
This is where pictures of Luna alone belong.

OTHERx.x Fanfictions, Comics, Contests, ECT


This folder shouldn't have anything in it. It is a main folder to hold all of our "OTHER" Folders, but nothing belongs in this main one itself. Please do not submit here unless specifically asked.

>Fan-Fictions
Fan-fictions belong in this folder, and no where else.

>Photos
This folder is a little tricky. It is a sub-folder, but it has it's own set of subs as well. Things that go here are photos that do not belong in the other categories. For example: People wearing Pony Swag goes here, or makeup. Not a lot actually belongs in the main photo folder.
Examples: :thumb258439423: HOW DO I HOLD ALL THESE PONIES by Cute-Wolfie Princess Celestia Face Paint by Sepla

>Customs
Customs are when you take a canon, store-bought toy and edit it. This can range from shaving the pony and sculpting new hair, to completely re-painting it to be another character all together.

>Artisan Crafts
This is where crafts go. Such as buttons, plushies, sculptures, ect. If you made a pony sculpture, for example, it belongs here, not in Customs. This is also where one would put pumpkin carvings, cakes, cupcakes, cookies, and other foods that are pony-related.

>Canon Toys
Here is where you would put pictures of your canon toys. If you bought a pony and re-styled their hair to seem more accurate, this is where it would go. Alsp pictures of your toys in random places go here too.

>Cosplay
And finally, this is where pictures of you or others dressed up as Pony characters. They can be humanoids or anthro or even quad costumes, they belong here.

>Animations
Here is where you would put animated pony art. Anything from pixel icons to full blown animated masterpieces. However, animations made form screenshots of the show belong in STAMPS.

>Stamps
This is where support/anti stamps for ponies go. This is also where animated banners from the show belong.

>Comics
If it's a comic, it belongs here. End of story.

>Sketchbook
Non-colored works belong here.

>Crossovers
Pretty self-explanatory, if you crossed over something non-pony into pony, then it goes here. This is also where other-Generation ponies with FiM ponies belong. [Exclusing Surprise in FiM.]

>Icon Contest/Unknown Sibling Contest
Locked. Both of these contests are over and therefore should not be submitted to.

Would the other "alt versions" of the mane six go with Surprise into the OC folder as well? (Like Firefly or Posie)
