|1. ETIQUETTE: Remember to treat all members as you would like to be treated. The most obvious rule is also the most important. Make sure you abide by dA's rules. -->help.deviantart.com/|
2. SUBMISSIONS: Your submissions should be your creation! Art theft is a big deal, and if you're caught taking work from someone else with nary an editation or give the original artist no credit, there will be no question in you being booted out of the group.
DO NOT STEAL List
I don't think anybody would be so, erhem, "unintelligent", as to try and steal official writings from the very minds that invented pokemon. But no matter, those are also included on the DO NOT STEAL list just in case the ninth wonder of the world rears its head. Also, do not steal writing from other pokemon fan-authors.
Digital and Traditional Art: Original drawings by any member of the pokemon art team, official sprites, and fan art are also included.
Music and Video:
I doubt these will be an issue on dA, but if you by chance slip up and post a link to an official song you claim to be of your creation, or even a remix of an official song, you shall be kicked out.
END OF DO NOT STEAL LIST, MORE RULES REGARDING SUBMISSIONS BELOW
Works are permitted to be, at most, a PG-16 rating. (Yes, that's a real rating.)
Upper moderate levels of Blood and/or gore allowed. If your post is seen as too gory or graphic, they will be dinied a spot in our gallery.
Swearing is allowed in its entirety. Unless it's used tastelessly (more than three times in one sentence), you should be fine with any form of profanity. Some exceptions can be made.
ABSOLUTELY NO SEXUALLY EXPLICIT SUBMISSIONS. No underage nudity, no descriptive sex scenes. As an addendum: There should also be no drug use directly displayed in submissions. (That goes for writings as well.)
3. PAY ATTENTION: Please watch the club and keep an eye on our blogs and news. You don't want to be left behind do you? Feel free to link us in your signature or journal entry, but don't worry, it's not a requirement.
NEW 4: Gallery Folders have been added. If you want one, either ask, or just submit to the featured folder. Us higher ups will make you a personal gallery folder marked with your username. We will tell you when your folder is created; so be sure to submit all works to your folder from then on!
