Gallery Folders

Pony related creations
Hey there everypony! This is MintyStitch, new head admin! We are excited to be bringing forth some changes to PoniesPlus, and first off, we're revamping the gallery!

If you submit to the gallery, PLEASE read below for all changes!

:bulletpink: The 'Princess Celestia', 'Princess Luna', and 'Princess Cadence' folders have been condensed into one 'Princesses' folder. Art that features alicorn Twilight Sparkle still needs to go to the 'Twilight Sparkle' folder. The 'Princesses' folder is for princesses who have been established as princesses from the get-go.
:bulletred: The 'Discord' and 'Queen Chrysalis' folders have been condensed into an 'Antagonists' folder. This new folder will also include characters such as Trixie, Gilda, King Sombra, Tirek, Sunset Shimmer, The Flim Flam brothers, Diamond Tiara, Silver Spoon, the Diamond Dogs, etc.
:bulletorange: The 'Derpy Hooves' folder has merged with the 'Secondary Characters' folder.
:bulletyellow: We've also tweaked what the 'Secondary Characters' folder will take, versus the 'Background Characters' folder. Secondary characters will now also take characters that are immensely popular within the fandom, and thus don't seem appropriate for the 'Background Characters' folder. Examples of these characters would be Octavia, Vinyl Scratch, Doctor Whooves, Lyra, Bon Bon, etc.

In addition! We are thinking of making separate folders for artisan crafts (ie. plushes, sculpts, metal working, etc) and animations. Should we do this? Or should we keep those things in the character folders? Please comment with your opinion so we can make a fair decision!

EDIT 9/20/14: The Artisan Crafts folder has been launched and is ready for submissions! This new folder includes plush toys, sculpts, metal working, paper craft, customized G4 toys, carvings, knitwear, etc. Cosplays should still go into their respective character-based folders.

Speaking of cosplay: WE NEED YOUR OPINION! Should we allow cosplays that have mainly purchased pieces (ie clothing one could find in stores online or irl that were not specifically intended for cosplay, or mass-produced cosplay wear not made by the cosplayer in question) into the gallery? Or should we only allow cosplays that have been mostly or fully hand made? We have been debating this internally and need your voice in order to decide what we should do.

Take care!

Welcome to Ponies Plus!

PoniesPlus is a group dedicated to collecting and promoting a premium selection of the finest My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic art that deviantART has to offer. Unlike other My Little Pony groups, PoniesPlus is a gated community and membership is only granted to those who we think are the more talented artists in the MLP-FiM fandom. You can watch us to receive our new selections in your message center. If you do not plan to submit anything, just watch us.

Becoming a member
:pointr: Membership in PoniesPlus grants you the privilege to submit art to our group. Membership is limited to those we see fit for the group. You can watch us regardless of membership.
:pointr: You can apply for membership by clicking "Join our group". This is a gated community, so give us a little introduction about yourself to convince us. Linking to what you think is your best work is highly recommended.
:pointr: Our panel of admins will review and vote upon your application. Empty applications will receive automatic no-votes.
:pointr: Make sure that you have something to show, we're not looking for "I'm planning to do pony art", make some pony art first and then apply for membership.

Rules of conduct
:pointr: We're all here because we're a fan of a show about magical ponies and friendship, in other words, use common sense when commenting in this group. No drama please.
:pointr: If you have a question, you can send us a note directly, or post it in the comment section if you're comfortable sharing it in public.
:pointr: PoniesPlus reserves the right to moderate the comments posted within the group limits.

The content
PoniesPlus aims to provide a finer selection of art, as we believe there are already quite some groups out there that have a lower level of entry. This means that our submission policy is much stricter than you may be used of in other groups. The most important thing to remember here is that we're not here to put every single piece of your work in our gallery, only the very best.

We accept
:pointr: Deviations that depict the characters from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.
:pointr: The artwork must be of high quality; finished, polished and something you're proud of.
:pointr: We also accept humanizations or other depictions of the characters. Anthro/'furry' depictions are not allowed.
:pointr: We do accept OCs, which are, in turn, subject to the same criteria.

We do not accept
:pointr: Fan art to other generations of My Little Pony; this means that G4 renditions of past generations are welcome.
:pointr: Effortless work, simple sketches, etc
:pointr: Anything that's drawn on lined paper, or poorly scanned or photographed. We put a lot of value in overall presentation.
:pointr: Work in progresses. This group is to feature the finished work, that includes everything that "feels" unfinished such as line art.
:pointr: Fan fiction. We just do not have the time or resources to read them all, nor cannot decide the criteria for fan fiction in regards to quality.
:pointr: We do not accept anything that is marked as mature (or ought to be).
:pointr: We run a policy of not accepting official artwork and direct derivatives of official artwork, which includes screenshots or vector traces of screenshots.

Submission policy
Only members can submit art to PoniesPlus. All members are obliged to follow the following rules.

:pointr: You can submit seven deviations per week. You can also submit work by other deviants.
:pointr: Please make sure to submit your deviation to the right folder. Each folder contains a description of its contents and its folder-specific criteria.
:pointr: Your submission will be reviewed by a panel of admins. The admins have the final word. Do not resubmit your deviation once it is rejected.
:pointr: If we notice that you keep resubmitting a previously rejected deviation, we WILL revoke your membership, or ban you from this group if the situation calls for it.
:pointr: When we discover that a deviation that resides in our gallery is put in storage, it will be removed as soon as possible. For it to return to the gallery, it needs to be public and go through the submission process again.

Affiliation policy
Anyone can submit an affiliation request. Much like membership requests, they need to be accompanied by an introduction explaining why our groups should affiliate. More information on our affiliation policy can be found in our terms of service.

For more details on how we run this group, please consult our terms of service.

I know the answer MAY be no, but just checking: does this group accepts OCs?
