RULES: Membership

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 18, 2011, 4:27 PM





Submitting Members are artists dedicated to Traditional Art. You may be only Traditional Art artists or multi-medium artists (like our admins) but you have to be producing Traditional Artwork that would be accepted by ALL our submission rules. This means that not everyone will be accepted to membership.
SUBMITTING MEMBERS have established Traditional Art in their gallery that will qualify for acceptance in our group. And will fit ALL membership criteria including ALL submission qualifications.
If you don't qualify for Membership, please be a Watcher -- you will still get to enjoy seeing the artwork submitted!

Every membership request is discussed and voted on by our staff members. There are various factors that effect an approval or decline. Admins are not obligated to divulge private group discussions with members/applicants -- you may ask for an explanation, but you might not get a reply.

Membership Requests with a majority of Deviations in their Gallery where the Deviation Descriptions (aka Artist's Comments) are 100% blank or only contain links to outside websites, will be Declined.

Membership Requests with a majority of Deviations in their Gallery that are against our group's submission requirements, will be Declined. (Submission requirements: traditional-art-only.deviantar…)

Members must be curtious and respectful of other members and group admins. Arguing, harassment and general snark-iness will not be tolerated.

All submitting members must be 13 years of age or older. (We adhere to DeviantART's TOS & Membership requirements. Underage members are in violation of DeviantART's policies and therefore are not accepted for membership in this group.)

"No Advertising" = Spamming group to promote yourself will result in being banned from the group.

Comments on group main page: Please keep the comments on our group's main page in a positive nature.
Making disrespectful comments or tone used in comments left on our group's main page will be hidden and result in being banned from the group.

All submitting members must maintain watching the group and receiving group journals. If you're not watching the group, you're not keeping up with group news.
Submitting members who remove us from their watch will be removed from membership.

:bulletblack: Attn 3D ARTISTS: It's very important that you read this journal before joining, Artisan Craft, Sculpture & Utilitarian submissions.

:bulletblack: Attn ANAMORPHIC ARTISTS: It's very important that you read this journal before joining, Anamorphosis or Anamorphic Art submissions.

:bulletblack: Violation group rules:
:bulletwhite::bulletwhite:  Submitting members who repeatedly break group rules will be removed from membership.

   :bulletblack: To request a submitting membership review, click the "Join our Group" link at the top of our main page.

Hi,
It varies due to the lives of the administrators because we discuss memberships before voting. During this time of year there is extra work in either school, jobs, or the holiday craziness and we have to prioritize our online duties with our lives.

Thanks :)

Hi,
Sorry for the delay in replying, your message got lost in the backlog. There isn't a specific amount of time nor amount of artworks we base our definition of "established" on. It's more like how your overall gallery includes and how you present yourself as an artist. Feel free to request membership.
Hope this helps. :)
Thank you.

How the new traditional artists will have an established gallery? I don't have, and got declined and also don't paint good maybe, but it doesn't mean the other new traditional artists don't paint good.
You should rethink on this matter.
I don't want to start an argument but it's like 19th century's royal-society declining new scientists because they didn't invent anything yet.

Hi, :)
I've looked into this, it would have been better if you'd sent this request on the original declined membership request form, but think I was able to locate all the details of your situation.

When you applied, over a week ago, you had 1 piece of artwork that would be accepted by our group. As part of the rules our admins agreed upon when we formed this group, all "members" would have to have at least a few pieces in their gallery that we would accept into our group. There were a couple of reasons for this.
One, the only thing that makes "members" special is their ability to submit their artwork; shouldn't it make logical sense that to be a "member" one should have enough artwork to be truly active with the groups they join? If one is not going to be active in the group, then why join? -- One can just "watch" without the responsibility of being active in the group and can enjoy viewing the same artwork delivered to their inboxes everyday just as "members" are able.
And second, since literally everyone can "watch" a group and enjoy viewing the same artwork as "members" -- you do not have to be a "member" to enjoy your love of the artwork a certain group is about and showcases, and therefore, literally every member of deviant art is capable of joining all groups as "watchers" just because their love of what that group is about. One doesn't have to be a "member" of every group to enjoy this benefit.

Additionally, should ones artistic interests & skills change and they do decided to post artwork to thier gallery that we would accept as a submission here, they can reapply. dA has not made a restriction on reapplying to groups, one may do so at anytime and as many times as they wish.

With our past reason having been explained -- Now, 1 week since your 1st declined request, you do have a few pieces in your gallery that would qualify you as a member of our group by our membership & submission rules, and I see you have sent in another request. This is in fact how we expect deviants in your situation to handle the issue: accept that you didn't have what our group requires (memberships and expectations are specific, just because one wants to be or do something doesn't necessarily mean they can without proper effort); work towards the required goal; once the goal has been reached, seeks new permission to join.

Each membership request is reviewed and voted on, so it probably won't be approved right away depending on when the admins are able to check in here --but, I do believe your request will be accepted this time. Just please be patient until someone can make their vote.

Hope this helps and have a great day. :)

Thank you.

Hello,
Your logics are true and the points you made are true as well and I completely agree with them. But normally what a member do is when they upload a deviation, they search for groups that will feature their works and give them a basic recognition. Obviously none is going to be happy, neither famous with first submission but the reception somehow builds the base of their confidence that this place has a good platform for their arts.
In that situation, basically he gets an overall idea from the membership rule that he must be a well known and active deviant in dA. This is the basic idea one member who is seeking feature gets.
And whereas my concern, I'd say I didn't grow suddenly an interest in traditional arts. I'm a person who keeps interest in various forms of arts but can not commit due to various reasons. For example, I'm painting and drawing since my childhood, but my old paintings are all measured 55x38sq.cm. You can understand it is simply impossible to scan them and also I don't own a scanner. Do not get mislead with the submissions I made. First one was a leisure painting, second was a first try in b/w painting and the third one you can say is usual for me. Obviously you should have not known about these, but you can always ask I paint or not. Like a certain group asked me before accepting my request.
Anyways, "si fueris Romae, Romano vivito more", so I shall just wait until I get qualified for a membership.
And Yes I made several join requests without being concerned about the rules. I thought it might be a bug or something. I apologize for multiple request.
Have a nice day :handshake:
Thank you.

Hi,
Understood. :) And it is nice that other group was able to ask you about your work. You'll find here, we don't usually ask. It's not that we don't care, it's that since we started the group all the admins have gradually received more responsibilities in the real world and our volunteer time available for dA is more & more limited (due to work, school, or our families/children). Like most members of dA, we like to enjoy the art here and try to not spend ALL our limited time available just managing the groups (which can get overwhelming when they grow larger). Our admins have worked hard to collect nearly any and all the information our members need to their questions and have made this available in our journals -- FAQ's to these journals can be found on our Home page and on the right side of our Journal page. If the FAQ type journals didn't answer your question, please feel free to ask us using the "Send a Note" button in the "Group Info" box on the left side of the Home page. Using the "Send a Note" button puts the message in a highlighted status for us to find and answer the fastest.

I hope you enjoy your time with our group and keep creating great traditional artworks. :) :handshake:

Thank you.

Hi,

We accept multi-media artists but we want our members to be active in creating Traditional Art. So if you have digital art alongside your traditional art that is fine.

Our name means that we only accept traditional art into the gallery.
