Well, its sort of a new rule, anyway. In the sense that its only recently that people have been submitting petitions to game companies for Lucy to show up as a guest character in their games, and only recently that Deviants have been submitting them to the Gallery

If you haven't been submitting them, you haven't been seeing them. That's because, after giving it some thought, I decided that they are not appropriate for the gallery. But when looking at the Messages center for the group I also realized that people were assuming that I was voting against letting them in because of the folder they were submitted to. This is not the case. The Miscellaneous folder is no more appropriate for them than the Featured folder *, or the Crossovers folder. They are not appropriate for two reasons: 1) they are transient in purpose, and if you see them a year from now in the gallery you would consider them irrelevant whether they succeeded or not 2) they aren't fan creations! At all!

That's what the gallery exists to show off, and the Misc. folder exists to show off fan creations that aren't drawings (but see below), cosplay, or fanfiction. Its for things like sculptures, pendants, stuffed toys, and other art forms that are less commonly displayed. When it does show off drawings, its for drawings that seriously defy categorization like forum banners and tutorials (admittedly, I think I need to clean up that folder now that I'm looking at it). But at the end of the day, its still for showing off fan creations. If these were mods of games or MUGEN characters or things of that nature (if there even is categories for that on DA, I'm not sure), I might allow them. But petitions just don't count.

Another thing is, I've seen the same petition posted in two different submissions by two different people. So this rule also helps prevent repetition and spam from creeping into the gallery. At least that is my hope.

That said, I have nothing against the petitions themselves. My personal expectation that they will go nowhere notwithstanding, there is nothing wrong with creating a petition. Its just that it isn't Gallery worthy material even if it has to do with Elfen Lied. If you want to post them, please use the Journal instead.

So with that said, here are the three petition submissions that inspired the new policy:


*This is a tangent, but I think it needs to be said as well, because this has been a bit of an issue for very long time: people who submit to the Featured folder are probably unaware, but it takes 3 votes from the staff to get a Featured submission through, as opposed to the usual 2. That's why the Featured Folder hasn't gotten updated in years even though people have submitted to it many times since then. We only have an average of 2 staff members around at any one time, even though there are 4 of us in total, and there has never been more than three active staff at any time, so it was always going to be an issue getting Featured submissions through the submission process. I leave the folder there mostly because I don't want to close it and I do want to recognize the material there for its excellence, but unfortunately its become schmuck bait as a result. I'm really sorry about that. You guys needed to know. ^^;

By the way, for clarity, "vector art" means "Vector Graphics". As in this kind of graphics:…; If you want to submit artwork of Lucy or Nana with their vectors, that's obviously fine. Please do.

I know, the terminology is unfortunate and potentially confusing. If anyone thinks I should amend the wording of the rules, please by all means tell me and I'll change it.
