Hello Dolls

just a couple of things to bring up.

Apparently, the issues with submitting to the Featured folder have not gotten any better, and, to remedy this issue, I have shut down the Featured folder to submissions.
This is not a permanent shut down, but until we can figure out why everyone insists on putting their work in there, despite it generally not being feature-worthy (which means, it's not your best work - it's not even finished work half the time!!).


On another note, we are losing one of our lovely co-founders to the demands of RL.
The ever so wonderful :iconrenehenckens: deserves a lot of love for all the hard work he has put in here at :icondeviantdolls:

So, to show him how much we appreciate him, here is a little feature!!! :heart::glomp::heart:

Submission Guidelines


To contribute to this group, you must also be a member and a watcher. If you are just a watcher, we do not recommend contributing.
Founded in April 2005, DeviantDolls is a group for female-centric art.
This is a creative environment, allowing you to promote your own work and to support other artists. Dolls are encouraged to treat other members as they wish to be treated, so if you submit your art here it makes sense that you take the time to check out other submissions.

Each Doll is able to submit 3 deviations each month. This doesn't mean that you have to submit 3 deviations per month, just that you can. We're a HUGE group with over 5,500 members and over 10,000 watchers, so submission limits are necessary. The posting limit may be changed when Contests or Events are running, but you will be notified of this in a blog entry so you know what's going on.

We do not accept Moderators or Contributors right off the bat; we will announce when we are accepting applications.


Deviant Dolls does NOT Accept everything! If the moderators feel your work does not meet the guidelines, it will be declined. If you are not mentally prepared to have your work potentially declined, do NOT submit work to this group! If work is declined for reasons you do not understand, feel free to contact the moderators and ask for reasons; however, keep in mind that any personal attacks on the moderators (which unfortunately happen) will result in instant banning from the group.


:bulletpink: Quality
You don't need to be a professional at your chosen medium, but please ensure that you submit ONLY your best work (we'll come back to that later). Works in progress, happy snaps, quick doodles etc aren't suitable for submission here.

:bulletpink: Themes
This is a group geared for women, girls, females of any kind and those who appreciate and love the female form, so it makes sense that this isn't the place for images which are disrespectful of or demeaning to women. Fetish, glamour and artistic nude are generally fine and some horror images are welcome. If you submit horror work that isn't accepted due to it's content, you are welcome to visit FrightClub to find more groups and projects where your horror images will be at home in.

:bulletpink: Repetition
In the interests of keeping our gallery fresh and interesting to look at, please don't submit more than one photo from each set that you shoot. Pick your own favourite to submit here.

:bulletpink: Etc
Please don't submit screenshots to the group's gallery. deviantIDs are permitted but must be of a high enough quality to be considered art. Please only submit genuinely artistic IDs.

:bulletpink: Our Discretion
Because we don't base our acceptance or rejections on our individual taste, it is YOUR responsibility to ensure that you are only submitting your best work to the group. The founders and moderators aren't out to hurt, offend or upset any of the Dolls so if your work is rejected, you are welcome to comment in the Submission Process and ask why. We're super-busy here and the group is HUGE so it might take a little time to get back to you but we'll do our best.
:bulletblue:Only Exception:
- As of Summer 2011 have one limit, of which we try to be open minded with, but due to the high volume of members and watchers who are underage, we do have a policy regarding sexual content. This judgment is done by discretion and is voted on by several of the moderators.

About submitting your best work...
Your submissions to DeviantDolls should be the art that you are most proud of, the art that you see in your own gallery and think I can't believe I made something THAT good!

Work which violates ANY deviantART policies and terms of service will NOT be accepted here, so no porn and no underage anything!


:star: SUGGESTING FAVES :star:
Members can submit up to 5 faves per week, subject to voting. If your work is declined from the gallery, please DO NOT suggest it to the faves gallery. Likewise, please do not submit your own work to the Faves gallery, just to get around the submission limit, as submission-bombing is not acceptable. Please understand that violating this guideline will be considered spam, which is not welcome here.


:star: NEW - CRITIQUE ME :star:
If you venture into the Dolls' gallery, you'll see a new folder called Critique Me. This is where you can submit art that you would like to receive detailed and constructive feedback. While you might submit work to other folders simply to promote your work, the Critique Me folder is ONLY for requesting critiques. Each member may submit ONE piece of art per month to the Critique Me folder. Keep in mind that Critique Me pieces must still meet the other guidelines!

:star: NEW - Adoptables :star:

DeviantDolls is place to exhibit your art, it is not a "For Sale" forum. Adoptables are very common on dA and are something we have no objection to. We do request the you not title your submissions as being adoptables for sale or auction, nor mark the submission as such. If you'll keep such mentions down in the text of the comments then we have no problem accepting them, subject to the other rules and guidelines.

Visitors

We love you, visitors passing through like sexy ships in the sexy night. Oh yeah, SEXY!

Hi.  I just tried to submit an image (fav.me/d7jsbf8) into the May 2014 folder, but I got that error message again about how only 1 deviation was allowed per month.  I was hoping to get this one through before the end of the month so I have capacity to contribute up to 3 more images again next month.

Thanks.

Actually, I later sent a note to ILoveBigCats and she fixed the problem by last weekend, so I was finally able to submit it (along with a third image).  :)

Hi there,
We seem to be having a problem with the submission limit at the moment, I sent a message to the other admins but I've not had a reply yet, I know a couple of people are absent and it's exam season for others (including me!) so I'm sorry for the late reply to this, I'll make some more enquiries.

Thank you for your patience :)

I still get this issue. Maybe if nobody's responding still, you could change it back? Unless it's a founder-only thing. =/

I've played with some settings and you should now be able to submit 3 pieces a month (I hope...)

The weird thing was that I tried to submit the same image 2 or 3 days later and I got thru.  It seems to be hit-and-miss.  I thought you or someone else fixed the problem at the time but did not reply.  :confused: :)

Hello! :wave:

I've gotten a little error message when submitting and I specifically read the Rules again to make sure I got it right. In the Rules it says:

"Each Doll is able to submit 3 deviations each month"

I've submitted 1 work so far this month and when I tried submitting a 2nd piece (to the April 2014 folder), I get the following error message:

Submission would exceed the global limit of 1 deviation every 30 days.

So I was just wondering: Have the rules changed from 3 to 1 per month?  Or are the settings in that folder possibly incorrect?

Thanks for your time :meow:

Hi there, I've had a poke around the admin area and it's been changed to 1 submission a month, but no admins have discussed this so I don't know if this change is deliberate or not. I've sent a message to the other admins and I'll get back to you, sorry for the inconvenience :)

Hello again,

I'm so so sorry this has taken so long to sort out, no one is replying to my messages so I've sent some more. Someone has played around with submission settings and not explained it to the rest of the mods so I don't know if it was deliberate or not. Thank you so much for your patience :)
