Star by EmilyStor3 The Rules Star by EmilyStor3

:bulletyellow: Do not advertise on the front page.
All ad comments will be hidden. We have Paid Features open.

:bulletyellow: You must be a member to submit to this group.
Meaning, for example your friend cannot submit your pieces here, you must do it yourself. And the first step is to hit that "Join" button!

:bulletyellow: Submission to the Featured folder are not allowed.
I will add high quality designs there from time to time. You can always make a request to be there.

:bulletyellow: Please make sure you submit to the right folder.
The folders have a description included, so check it before you submit!

:bulletyellow: Remember to put OPEN or CLOSED status in the title.
Without the status statement in the title, the submission will be declined. As well as if the adopt is "pending" or the comments are disabled.

:bulletyellow: Mature content is allowed as long as it is marked properly.
Note that little censors covering bits is not enough, you still need to add mature content.

:bulletyellow: Remove sold adoptables from the group.
It is a lot easier and a lot faster for you to do it.

:bulletyellow: No stolen adoptables, they must be made by you. Either from the scrap, using a base or a maker.
If any of you see a stolen design being sold here, send the group a note, and we will take care of it.

:bulletyellow: This seems to be a surprisingly common problem so remember to mark your prices clearly, otherwise there's a chance your design will be declined.
Also, all kinds of unclear descriptions might get your submissions declined.

:bulletyellow: Remember to behave yourselves, no foul language or harassing anyone.

:bulletgreen: If you need to contact the group, send us a note. It is easier to notice than comments.

:bulletgreen: Feel free to send us suggestions how we could improve the group.

:bulletgreen: Do not hesitate to ask if you have something on your mind. We are happy to help.
