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?

May I ask why my Apex Predator and Beacon and Hope keep on being declined, despite the fact that I submitted them in the proper folder and even adapted their description to fit the group requirements?
I've never had similar issues with previous works, here.

I still don't feel like Apex Predator belongs in this group and the same goes for Beacon and Hope.
I'm sorry but the art here is meant to be about a character

Hello I posted some of my work on my OC's in good sections, but I see they are regularly declined so I withdraw from your gallery. Good continuation to you!Huh? 
inSYNCinSANITY Featured By Owner 6 days ago  Hobbyist General Artist
If you tell me what art you're referring to I can tell you why they were declined

I'd hate to ask but, why does my Transformers OC keeps getting declined? Am I adding him to the wrong folder? Cause, I did add him to the Android/Robotic folder. Depressed

It's because it's a transformers OC. This group doesn't allow fanart/fancharacters.

Oh okay. Thank you for letting me know. & sorry about that. XD
inSYNCinSANITY Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
