Welcome to Crazy-4-Animals



Hi. Firstly I would like to thank everyone for joining this group. Thanks everyone.

The group guidelines are as follows:
:bulletblue:German: crazy-4-animals.deviantart.com… :bulletblue:Portuguese: crazy-4-animals.deviantart.com…
:bulletblue:French: crazy-4-animals.deviantart.com… :bulletblue:Polish: crazy-4-animals.deviantart.com… :bulletblue:Italian: crazy-4-animals.deviantart.com…
:bulletblue:Hungarian crazy-4-animals.deviantart.com… :bulletblue: Spanish crazy-4-animals.deviantart.com…

Guidelines:

1. No pornographic or dead animals will be accepted. (The only exception to this is if it is a picture of a museum animal or museum bones.)

2. Submissions are limited to 2/per week.

3. Only members may submit their works. So please join 1st. :D

4. No STOLEN works. If caught submitting work that is not your own and you are trying to pass it off as yours, you will be BANNED.

5. No anthro or adoptables either please. No animals doing human-like things either. Thanks

6. Animals must be the obvious subject of any art. If we feel the animal is not, we will decline it.

7. All art must be your best work. Photos that are really out of focus and blurry, or the colors badly distorted will not be accepted. (Changing the colors for a more dramatic affect is fine. This only qualifies when it takes away from the shot.) Drawings must be neat and subject clear. (Example: a cat must look like a cat and not a blob etc. :) ) And so on and so forth. (I know not everyone is a perfect artist, and we are not looking for the best art. We just want to make sure that what is submitted is something others would like to see, and not just a random doodle.)

8. To make #7. fair you will now need 3 votes either to accept or decline a piece. With a group this large we cannot take time to respond to everyone, but if you are declined (Which I know won't be much.) you can always leave a comment asking why. We will try to respond in a timely manner.

9. Only the Admins and myself may add to the featured folder. This will be for our personal favorites. I am sure all of you will have something in there from time to time. :D

10. Because of how large the group has gotten, please make sure your works are submitted to the correct folders. If you are unsure where something belongs - ASK, we will gladly direct you to the correct folder. Things submitted into incorrect folders will be declined without redirection.

11. If anyone is RUDE, or DISRESPECTFUL to any of the Admins, fellow members or myself they will banned. I am not going to tolerate it at all, or from anyone. So please respect everyone here.

Watermarks..We reserve the right to decline an otherwise acceptable shot if,in our opinion the Watermark takes away from the shot,or our ability to view it fully.
Note:We accept that you have the right to protect your work,just please use (or place)Watermarks that don't detract from your work



Folder include:

Featured (Or Hall Of Fame) - This folder can only be added to by my Co-Founders and me. It is for our very best works of our members only.

Wild and Zoo Photography :Misc: - All other wild and zoo animals that do not fit into the other folders.

Bears, Panda, Red Pandas and Raccoons Photography - This folder is for all types of bears and pandas. Raccoons go here as well because they are close to red pandas so I felt it necessary for them to go into a folder with them.

Cartoon and Mythological Animal - Any animals that do not look realistic or are not naturally found in nature.

Traditional and Crafty Animals - this folder is for handmade animals. Drawings and Painting must look like real natural animals. (Coloring doesn't have to be correct though.)

Digital Animals - any digitally created animals that look half way realistic.

Stamps, Animations, and Avatars - This folder is for animals related stamps, avatars, and animations.

If you have any questions please contact the folder manager. Manager info is located in the folder itself. Thanks.

I'm not trying to be harsh with any of you but the admins and I feel these guidelines are necessary to ensure the enjoyment of this group for all members. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us. Thanks and enjoy. :)
Here is our latest Friday Feature. Some of these may be quite old submissions which I have found while reorganising folders. Hope you don't mind seeing some of these again!

Over the next few weeks I'm going to be changing a few of our folders. I hope this won't make any of our members too unhappy, but it's definitely time for a clean up I think!
I'm afraid that the Critique folder will be disappearing completely as we no longer have any admins who are happy to write critiques on submissions. I will be moving the submissions from the Critique folder into the appropriate other folders. This may be better for all concerned as they are more likely to get featured on a Friday if they are in the other folders.
I'm also going to combine some of the folders that are not photography. We don't get enough submissions in those categories to keep them separate. There are a few other folders that I would like to tweak as well, but I'm less sure about what I want to do with them so watch this space for news! I don't plan to close the group while I make these changes, but you may find that certain folders might be closed for a week or two. Please bear with me, I'll sort it out as fast as I can! My aim is to simplify things as much as possible to make it easier for our members and easier for admins as well.
I would also be very happy to hear from anyone who would be interested in joining our admin team. If you can spend just a few minutes every day checking submissions I would like to hear from you.
Thank you in advance for your patience and co-operation and for being a member of Crazy-4-Animals!
