Greetings, Gentlemen and Ladypeoples!
Today I’d like to jump on the topic of Member Submissions.
This one has been a bit odd since we really haven’t had ANY member submissions and we haven’t allowed any aside from the occasional recommended tutorial. There IS a reason for this, however.
The main reason is that member submissions are not to be for just any deviation. The plan is to have deviations made by members that have used the tutorials and lessons dACipher has released. The reasoning behind this is that we want members here to show off their work, as well as their growth. People will still be able to see your work and talents or skills, but it won’t be randomly picked work as you may see in other groups.
In order for it to be approved, it must:
Reference the lesson or lessons you’ve used to create said deviation. It’s a fine way of showing people how you learned to do what you did and also give acknowledgement to the artist who showed you how.
Be your own tutorial. We realise that we have plenty of people who make tutorials on their own—this is fine. Feel free to submit one! We’ll place it in the proper folder for people to find. We know we aren’t the ONLY place to go to for knowledge, so it doesn’t hurt to be able to present a wealth of knowledge outside of the cipher to people.
Be a tutorial (if it isn't a deviation you made based on one).. If it belongs to someone else, feel free to ask them if they would like their work to be put in our folders. The last thing we would like to do is step on toes, so please be courteous and ask them if they feel comfortable having their work associated with dACipher.
These are just some guidelines to ensure that everything runs smoothly and allows for everyone to have a great time here.
Always, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to shoot us a note. We’re always willing to provide you with whatever answers you need.
Thank you for taking time to read this blog. We appreciate it. :)
