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.
: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.
: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.
: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. If such a deviations differentiates itself by doing something that makes it unique and original, we are willing to make an exception.


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.
Ladies and gentlemen, here's your neighborhood group founder TheArtrix with a special announcement.

As some of you may have noticed, the group has come to a crawl in the past few months, mostly due to a decreasing number of available admins. So we're opening a few new admin positions for you to fill. We have four positions open, so don't be shy to apply. Here's what we are looking for.

:pointr: Hands-on experience moderating deviantART groups. While this isn't mandatory, it is highly desirable, since Ponies Plus uses a lot of deviantART's group functionality, so it is good when you're familiar with them.
:pointr: Fan of My Little Pony, friendship is magic, obviously.
:pointr: An eye for good art, and able to explain why you think something is good art. A favorites gallery showing a quality collection of pony art is highly recommended.
:pointr: You don't necessarily have to be an artist, but typically, it helps. Still, art connoisseurs are very welcome as well.
:pointr: Online daily, or at least most days of the week.

If being part of our little elitist treehouse club of snobbish pony art connoisseurs sounds like a good idea to you, please send this group a note, leave a comment in the comment section or by other means of your preference. Once we have found our new moderators, they will be announced in a journal post. If you have applied for this position earlier, it will suffice to just announce your availability and we'll go over your past application.

In other news, the admins and I are going to review our current policy on plushies due to the increasing amount that is being submitted and approved. It has been pointed out numerous times that plushies seem to get a "free pass" and we may want to become more critical when it comes to such deviations.

Also, with the release of the Equestria Girls trailer, we will have to decide how to handle this franchise. This too will be discussed internally before coming out with an official statement.

Enjoy the rest of your regularly scheduled day.

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

Hi there, sorry for the late reply. We do accept OCs, if the quality of the work is high enough. Check our "Original Chatacters" folder to get an idea of what we are looking for.

We do accept OC submissions!  You will see a special folder just for OC's in our gallery if you have a look.  So long as they are up to our standards we accept them.
