Hello there, this is your Co-founder, otiaKaito
First of all, I would like to welcome all the newest members who have joined here. Next, as for your submission and requests, there are specific rules that are meant to be followed which can be found at the widget below this journal. But, for those who couldn't find it, I'll post it here anyway:
1.Feel free to contact any of the admins here regarding any issues or problems of some sort. Don't worry, we don't bite.
2. No Foul or Lewd words.
3. Any form of art is accepted...
4. ... Except for things that pertains to any living person in particular, sex, nudity, crack pairings, and stolen art.
5. We do NOT
accept any characters aside from Slenderman, proxies, relatives and OC's related.
6. Submission to the featured folder is STRICLY prohibited.
7. Moreover, submit to the proper assigned folder indicated for which genre of art it belongs to.
Now you may ask yourself, why do I, the co-founder, is posting again this lame rules? Is it just to humiliate himself or to point out something I missed?
The answer is that yes, there are some rules that are broken so many times, it's giving me a migraine. Specifically rule numbers 5, 6, and 7. But most of the time it's 7. So I'm going to point them out one by one not because I'm pertaining to someone in particular, but as a reminder to all of you of what seems to be wrong."5. We do NOT accept any characters aside from Slenderman, proxies, relatives and OC's related."
Notice the stress I put on the word "not". It's pretty much self-explanatory here but some of you kept posting things unrelated to the main topic of the group such as Jeff, Jane, Eyeless Jack, etc. Why you can't see it now is because I have already remove it from the folder. So please, this a Slenderman-related group. Not a general creepypasta group."6. Submission to the featured folder is STRICLY prohibited."
Alright, it's very appreciated to submit your works here but it's a big no-no to submit in featured folder. Only us admins have the power and the right to put things in there. Now you may notice in the featured folder, there are some works there that may seem, under your rating scale, unworthy to be part of that. Well, with all due respect to the founder's decisions, I have no right to remove what the founder, QueenGrim
, had put there even before I became a co-founder of this group. Who knows? Maybe your art will be put into the featured folder."7. Moreover, submit to the proper assigned folder indicated for which genre of art it belongs to."
This. This rule is broken so many times, it's giving me migraine. Not to sound rude here but, have you guys really reading the rules? Or do you just select a random folder then click submit? This rule is really simple enough for you guys to comprehend, yet why do you still submit to the wrong folder? Is it hard to under stand the phrase "Submit to the correct folder"? Again, you may not see it right now but I already sorted that out beforehand.
Now, I may have offended some of you but I really need to point this out for you guys to realize what was wrong. So in order to bring closure to the subject, I have created new folders for you guys to fill up with.
First we have the Proxies
folder where all of your OC proxies really and most likely belong. Most stuff in Other misc art are currently being moved to this folder.
And there's the Crossover Folder
. In this folder, I have loosened the limitations of "Slenderman-only" policy. But please bear in mind that this is still a Slenderman group and not a general creepypasta group.
I hope you understand my points and sorry if I made a small rant here and offend some of you guys.
Once again, this is you Co-founder speaking and have a nice day ahead!EDIT:
Thanks to reliable sources and widespread of news thanks to technology, I have stumbled upon this article
which says that proxy-wannabe 12 year-olds planned an assault against their 'friend' just to become Slenderman's apprentice. I would like to clarify that Slenderman is NOT real and so does his proxies. So for those proxy-wannabees out there, better drop that thought. Also may I remind you that this is a fan group, not a secret occult, nor religion, nor whore-shippers. OC proxies are fine as long as it isn't you who has become a proxy.
Remember, don't take the fanbase too far. Don't be an idiot to spend the rest of your remaining sixty years in juvie...
