{ R U L E S + F A Q }

Tue Jul 8, 2014, 11:10 AM by BritishMindslave:iconbritishmindslave:
Welcome! These are the general rules to the club! First-time members must read them, but will be accepted regardless.

.:{R U L E S}:.


1. No rudeness. If you are rude here, you will be withdrawn from the group immediately.

2. No main cast pictures here. If it's a main character with an original pony, then that's fine. But if it's only main characters, you will be asked to withdraw it from the group.

3. Crossover ponies do indeed count as original ponies since you made them up.

4. Please submit your images to the correct folders! If they are submitted to the incorrect folder (or to the AUTODELETE folder) they will be declined and you will be asked to resubmit them. Do not give us an attitude about where we ask you to resubmit them, there's a method to our madness!

5. Art theft is not tolerated and will result in an instant ban from the group and you will be reported.

6. You must credit all bases you use. It is considered theft if you don't, and any submissions not crediting a base will be declined and asked for proper credit.

(To prove you've read the rules, and you'd like to be a Mod/Contributor, please include the phrase "Gotcha, Brit!" in your note somewhere!)

.:{F A Q}:.


Can I join!?
Of course! Just click the join button and you will be automatically approved! You don't need to put anything in the box, we won't see it!

I submitted to the wrong folder, what do I do?
It's okay! Your images aren't automatically approved. Our mods go through every images that comes into our group, and accept/deny them depending on whether or not they are submitted correctly. You don't need to comment on the front page or anything!

This folder has been closed due to a DA update. Feel free to look at our Folder Guide linked below or send the group a message if you're stuck on where to submit something!
I don't know where to submit this image! Where do I put it?
We have a "Where does this go?" folder that is frequently sorted! However, it is highly discouraged that you dump your entire gallery there. We do not sort everything for you.


My OC is the daughter of Princess Celestia and [Insert Male OC]! She can--
Don't leave comments like these on our front page! Members may see it, but if you honestly want it to be seen please submit an image or literature or something! Also, they will go in the appropriate species folder, not "OCs with Canon Characters"!

What if my OC is a mix of different species?
They will go into the "Non Canon + Original Species" folder, unless they are a mix between two canon species. Then they would go in the "Other Canon Species" folder.

What if my OC is paired with a canon character?
They still go in the appropriate species folder unless the Canon character is present in the picture, then it would go into the "OCs with Canon Characters" folder!

My OC is a canon species from the older MLP generations! Where do I put them?
Since this group is based on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, these OCs go into the "Original Species" folder for now. Later on, we may make an Older Generations folder!

What does "canon" mean?
The term "canon" as in "canon characters" or "canon species" means that the content is from the show! Canon characters are characters that appear in the show, and likewise canon species are species of pony that appear in the show "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic!"
Please keep these in mind when submitting.

I want to advertise my contest/commissions/etc! Could you make a journal for me to boost it?
We have an "Advertisements" folder dedicated specifically to that! Please submit any journals/submissions relating to those and make sure you are able to donate a small point fee to help out the group! More information available here

Do I have to draw my OC or can I use the Pony Maker?
We accept everything, so long as credit is due! You can use the pony maker as much as you please! Just don't sell adoptables of it, since that's against Zoi's rules LOL

Any Questions?


Feel free to comment or send a note! We're friendly and don't bite, and we will answer your questions the best we can!
Please also refer to our Handy Folder Guide if you have any questions about submissions! ;
{Handy Folder Guide!}Decided to update this as a bit of a reminder/help to everyone who gets stuck on where to submit~ ;w;/
There has also been some changes to the "Where does this go?" folder too due to an update DA has recently made.

Gotcha, Brit! but... I don't actually have an OC (yet) and don't know where to start. the quizs i've found soo far are pretty bad, unless you wonna be known as one of the Mane6 (which is against your rules). Does anyone know a decent quiz, or does someone fancy having go trying to understand me. Thanks

Quizzes aren't going to give you ideas for OCs xD
It's super easy to make one! If you don't have ideas, I suggest maybe using one of these:
This is a pony theme generator. It's randomized, but it can help you get ideas rolling!
If you want to see how they would look similar to the show, but don't want to draw them (or don't have ideas?) there's a pony creation generator here:
Pony Creator v3 by generalzoi
(My sister and I worked on some of the assets for the game ouo)

That's kind of like a starter pack, have fun with it! It's a great way to come up with ideas.

Ok, Thanks, Ill give it a go. When I said i have no idea, i don't want to pick the wrong statistics. Like i understand that Unicorns are smart and can deal with fiddly things, while Pegasus are athletic. I don't wonna pick one and find its not right for me. I honestly do't know how the color is decided.

All the species have some kind of a theme to them, but you don't have to restrain yourself to them! That's what makes it unique. :>
Colors are hard, so why not look up color schemes? Like, pick one base color then look at color pallets to match them up and see what looks good? :0

Uhm... I have some questions:

Can I upload Equestria Girls art?
If so, where should I submit it?
My OC is a normal pegasus, but her wings are kinda weird(?) as you can see in some pics... Should I submit art featuring her in Canon Species, Original Species or somewhere else?
AND
... I forgot the last one //shot

:iconbritishmindslave:
BritishMindslave Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
Equestria Girls art goes in our Humanized Anthro folder!
As for your OC, she just goes in the normal Pegasus folder.

Make sure all your bases are credited! :>
