Joint-Stock Revamp + Rules

Mon Apr 27, 2015, 7:53 AM


Gallery Overhaul

Joint-Stock faced quite some challenges over the last months - from a founder whose obviously MIA for quite a while now, loosing it's Supergroup status,  having only one remaining co-founder whose active to finally have a set of 3 active co-founders once again!!

As you see, TheStockWarehouse didn't only hold the fort, but also started the much needed gallery revamp in November 2014. This was partially due to dA's changed folder limit for galleries*, but also due to the sheer amount of subfolders, double and triple deviations in the galleries.

While slowly making process, to revamp a groups whole gallery is a major time-consuming task (I've been there, done that before), and so  the call for new admins was made, earlier this month. nitchwarmer and I, poserfan-stock came aboard and after making a new concept, we quickly started on the job. And got it done much faster than expected. While working on moving/sorting deviations all over the place, we noted several problems which will result in a change of Rules resp having Rules for  the very first time in this group. Don't panic, there are only a handful and these actually should be common sense.

As for the gallery revamp: there are still subfolders, but most are more general than they were before.  Since some of you may have trouble placing stock in the right category, we will give you a rundown on these new categories thru an extra journal called Gallery Glossary .  For ease of use, we will also add descriptions on top of each gallery folder describing what's allowed in there.


The Rules


  • PLEASE USE THE CORRECT FOLDER WHEN SUBMITTING!
    Otherwise your submission will be declined and you have to resubmit.
  • ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE IN dA's RESOURCES/STOCK GALLERY!
    Stock, posted in dA's Photography gallery or in your Scraps will be declined as of April 2015. Also, please follow FAQ #809: What are DeviantArt's stock image guidelines?
  • ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE LEGITIMATE, PREFERABLY YOUR OWN, STOCK.
    Google is not a stock site; it's a search engine that does not have the copyright to any of the images shown in their listings.
  • NO LIMIT ON SUBMISSIONS!!
    But please don't overdo it.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT BY DOWNLOADING AND USING THE OFFERED STOCK, YOU ARE AGREEING TO ABIDE BY THE TERMS OF USE SET BY EACH STOCK PROVIDER!! SO, PLEASE READ THE TOU AND WHEN IN DOUBT, ASK THE PROVIDER FOR CLARIFICATION!




Gallery Glossary


Instead of writing all the information down again, I'll give you the link to the main glossary (which is also linked in the topmenu).


I'll only highlight one specific folder, the Miscellanous folder. This folder is primarily to be used only, when you're totally unsure where to put your stock. But it comes with a warning: Do not abuse it!!  Don't try to submit all your stock into the MISC folder, cause it's the easiest way for you and we, the Admins, have to sort it. It makes you look like a total jerk and we will notice this kind of behaviour and discuss it in the backroom.
Failure to use the MISC folder properly will result in
  1. You do submit a bunch of stock (which easily fit into other categories) will result in all your deviations getting declined (if it gets noticed during the acceptance process). Otherwise you'll end up on our backroom blacklist.
  2. You do a repeat performance of your former stupid behaviour = you'll get blocked/banned from the group! There will be no further warning!

My group :iconlegitimate-stock: give me too much work for a good management of the other groups I belong to, so I decided to leave your group. I hope you wouldn't worry about my decision: I keep the contact, of course, with the affiliation. :hug:

I understand, believe me. I just brought on two new co-founders to help get the group's gallery organized. Thank you for your continued support via affiliation!

I don't think there are any rules posted at Joint-Stock ~ basically, for members, is to submit to the correct folder, no submission limits and make sure all submissions are legitimate stocks and not images from "Google".

For anyone using the stock submitted to the gallery would be to be sure to follow the rules of the stock artists :aww:
