Rules & Notices:

:bulletgreen: Clearly state somewhere within the deviation's description who the character(s) belong to. Art that is not marked will be declined.
:bulletgreen: Make sure to submit art to the correct folder. Galleries each have a description explaining which submissions belong there if you're unsure, or please just ask.
:bulletgreen: Mature content must have a warning applied to it.
:bulletgreen: Follow all of DeviantArt's rules - of course!

This group does not allow the following:
:bulletred: Fanart. I'm sure it's the same in most other OC centric groups.
:bulletred: Characters from any pop culture or fandom. I'm sorry, but this group focuses on original characters from original stories.
:bulletred: Characters for sale. Sorry, but adoptables have no place in this group. If you want to promote your adopt there are groups for that exact reason.

We hope you have a great time. By sticking to these rules, your experience here at OC-Artists should be all the more rewarding.

In relation to the last journal, there are still some people leaving and I've come to the conclusion that it's has to do with the rules and how they're actually being enforced with a dedicated founder.
I would just like to suggest to anyone thinking about leaving to think about instead join my other group (the one I actually started) CharacterConnoisseur (especially if the issue is fan-characters)

:iconcharacterconnoisseur: :iconcharacterconnoisseur: :iconcharacterconnoisseur: :iconcharacterconnoisseur: :iconcharacterconnoisseur:

And while we're on the subject, I'd love some advise on how to improve this group to make less people wanna leave?

So what, we're basing this group off your personal feelings on what you consider good enough now?
inSYNCinSANITY Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Actually this was a rule I put in place based on the opinions of the other members of the group.
If you don't like it you can leave. I don't need to justify myself to you.

You need to say who the characters belong to in the discription
CzarKaiser Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2015
"these characters are owned by me."
it's all the way at the bottom of the description.
