Mission Statement: We here at Pokefans Forever! can’t get enough of our Pokémon. Most of us were probably fans since day one, while others joined it at a later game series. We love Pokémon so much, we devote pieces of writing/artwork to the very show we grew up with. We’ve grown so accustomed to the Pokémon world, we wish it were real so we could live there too!
Okay, so maybe that’s going a tad overboard (or not….), but the point is that we make art for others to enjoy because we enjoy it so much! However, I do have some rules we should follow to keep the peace within the group and among non-members. (oh god….not more rules!)….I know, but we need rules so that our group can stay on dA (and become the GREATEST POKÉFAN GROUP EVER!!!!! MWAHAHAHAHAHA! )…….again, maybe not….
ENOUGH STALLING! ON WITH THE RULES:
Rule #1) MATURE CONTENT WARNINGS WHERE NECCESARY (if necessary): I know, this might seem superfluous, but I just want to be sure everything here is under wraps. Most of us MIGHT be old and ‘mature’ enough to read content that would make our parents lock us up in an asylum if we EVER wrote it, but we need to keep it labeled if it’s nothing you would let your younger siblings read/look at. I know, I sound a bit uptight about this, but please, watch out for yourself and the group you’re submitting it to. I AM NOT SAYING WE DON’T ACCEPT THOSE STORIES….(I know, I know, beating a dead horse….) If you think your artwork, specifically literature (but can be visual stuff, too) doesn’t have a strict enough warning, and it should, run it by me or any of the admins first before submitting it. (you can do this by noting the link to the work to me or any of the admins.)
Rule #2) No vulgar language in the comments! We all do it, even I’m guilty of cussing sometimes. However, please keep it off of the comments you leave on ANY part of the group’s dA webpage though. Mostly because you (as a whole) have no way of knowing what the ages of people in the group are (I know, 13 and up) and also, some people may find it offensive if they see something like that. On a related subject, vulgarity in writing IS allowed. However, if use of it is heavy in the particular writing, make sure a mature content warning is slapped on it. (This ONLY applies to written works. If you have visual artwork, use your own discretion.)
Rule #3) NO ART THEFT ALLOWED! (DO NOT VIOLATE Deviantart’s ToS) Self-explanatory, but I felt like I needed to list this as a rule/reminder!
Rule #4) No dArama allowed in any part of this group's site, including the group's chat room: I don't wanna hear it, ain't life stressful enough without drama being added to the mix. Besides, by putting your feuds/personal fights on here, I speculate we would lose potential members or watchers and visitors. As if it's not bad enough on the site itself, it would do even more harm here! Therefore, KEEP THE dArama TO YOURSELVES PLEASE! One more thing!: If I get pulled into these dArama fights anyway, I WILL BAN EVERYONE INVOLVED!
Thanks for reading and adhering to the rules and I hope you enjoy being a part of Pokéfans Forever!
