dA's Etiquette Policy
2. We only accept ART MADE 100% BY YOU.
Art theft is strictly prohibited! This includes re-posting of entire artworks as well as the use of copyrighted material (such as official Pokemon sprites and official Pokemon images) in your work.
Additionally, this club reserves the right to reject submissions which too closely reproduce existing artwork (regardless of how they were created). Attempting to submit artwork which breaks this rule to the club will result first in a warning and later, in possible removal from the club.
3. Members are allowed 2 miscellaneous Main gallery submissions per month.
4. All content must be family-friendly. Pokedorks reserves the right to reject anything that its admins judge to be too mature. All submissions must meet the following conditions in order to be considered acceptable:
Underage characters may not be portrayed nude, scantily-clad, or in any inappropriate manner. Adult characters portrayed thusly will be judged on a case-by-case basis, but such material is likely to be declined.
There cannot be any definition of sexual organs whatsoever.
Nothing sexual can be implied by the artwork.
Blood and violence will be judged on a case-by-case basis.
No pornographic material, beastiality, inflation, curse words, implied or incomplete curse words, incest, m-pregs, pedophilia, fetish art of any sort, etc.
Romantic content will be judged on a case-by-case basis dependent on how mature it is.
Remember: Pokemon attracts a wide audience, and this club wants to make sure that people of all ages and levels of sensitivity are comfortable here.
5. Please watch the club and pay attention to Pokedorks' blogs. That way, you can stay updated on contests and club news. A link to the club in your journal or signature is appreciated, but not required.
