folders have been split into two separate folders because of how quickly they fill up. Hopefully this helps many of you submitting to the group!
Hi all! As the group continues transitioning to new folder organization, here is a quick list of what each folder is for: please refer to this list if you are unsure of where a submission belongs! Original Species
: For original open or closed species - NOT rip-offs, series-based designs, or unique/one-off designs. Canine
: For all canine-like creatures, including but not limited to domestic dog breeds, wolves, and foxes. Feline
: For all feline-like creatures including but not limited to domestic cat breeds, lions, and tigers. NOT for series-based felines such as Warrior Cats, The Lion King, etc. Reptilian+Aquatic+Amphibian
For a variety of generally non-mammalian creatures including but not limited to snakes, frogs, sharks, fish, dinosaurs, and dragons. NOT for series-based designs such as Spyro the Dragon, Eragon, Pern, etc. Avian
: For a variety of real and mythic creatures including but not limited to small birds, birds of prey, griffons, and bats. Equine
: For all equine, unqulate, or cervidal creatures including but not limited to horses, cows, and deer. NOT for humanoids such as satyrs or fauns, or for series-based designs such as MLP. Due to the particularly prolific nature of MLP content, submissions with apparent characteristics of MLP branding will be either declined or deleted from this folder with no exceptions. Anthro
: For all anthropomorphic designs regardless of what non-human species it is derived from, and similar bipedal animals with fully animal features. NOT for series based designs such as Sonic, FNAF, Pokemon, Homestuck, etc. Humanoid
: For all human-based designs that are either fully human or have mainly human features with only a few animal or other features, such as animal ears or tails.Series-based Designs
: For all designs related to or based on a specific, copyrighted series. This includes but is not limited to: MLP, Sonic, The Lion King, FNAF, Pokemon, Homestuck, Steven Universe, etc. Series-based designs found in other folders will be deleted, not moved. Clothing+Accessories
: For any sale of pre-designed outfits, accessories, weaponry, etc. that is not accompanied by a character design sale. Series-based designs are acceptable here. Unique or Miscellaneous
: For designs that either do not quite fit anywhere else (such as mixed specie designs, like a dog+cat mix) or for large adopt page submissions that contain multiple different species. NOT for series based designs.
The rest of the folders have been in use a long time, so the rest of this PSA is a refresher:YCH
: For any YCH-type submission of any theme, price, or availability. If it is a limited-slot YCH, OPEN or CLOSED must be somewhere in the title. DTA+Raffle+Free
: For any type of adopt that does not require payment, regardless of the method used to meet that requirement. Eggs+Mystery Aesthetic
: For submissions in which a design is hidden until after purchase. The nature of the design is suggested through visual hunts or "aesthetic" imagery. Gacha-type submissions also belong here. Breedables
: For submissions in which existing designs are offered for "breeding slots" to create designs inspired by those of the two "parents". Journals
: For Journal submissions regarding trading, selling, and buying of designs. NOT for commission journals. Lineart
: For submissions offering either free to use or pay to use lineart. Makers
: For submissions offering designs made by a "maker" - A maker is typically a flash program that compiles a set of bases and can randomly generate designs or create designs based on user input.
As always, all submissions (barring lineart) must have OPEN or CLOSED somewhere in the title or they will be removed! Additionally, once a design has sold, please update it to have CLOSED in the title so the mods can easily remove it.
Thank you for your time and feel free to refer to this journal whenever you have a question about folders.
