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:… :bulletblue:Portuguese:…
:bulletblue:French:… :bulletblue:Polish:… :bulletblue:Italian:…
:bulletblue:Hungarian… :bulletblue: Spanish…


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.

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. :)
I have a big problem with my internet at the moment because the local farmer has broken my telephone cable (with a very large load of hay on his trailer!) The only internet access I have is if I visit my neighbour and use his. I'm sorry about this, but there will be a delay for the Friday Feature and I can't get to checking submissions very quickly at the moment. France Telecom aren't being very responsive as most of the French seem to be on holiday for most of August! I will get back to DA as soon as I can.
This week's features - hope you like them!

Is posting animal petitions allowed ?
AprilDHallPhoto Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2013  Professional Photographer
Please submit a link for the petition in a Note to the Admins and we will review it.  If it's something we can get behind we will post a journal on it.  If it isn't we will let you know.

Wolfling01 Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2013  Hobbyist Photographer
I wanted to ask if it would be possible to arrange less restrictive member level. My normal weekly output is 3-4 photos so you don't have to worry about being spammed and I believe that if you look into my gallery, you'll agree I won't bother your admins with trash.
Thanks for considering it.
BenTPhotos Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013
Thanks very much for adding my photo to your gallery.
