Welcome, to the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry! Please read through this thoroughly, as it explains how this group works.
How to Join:
-Easy! At the top of the screen is a button which says 'Join our group'. Hit that button!
-In the Comments box that pops up,
PLEASE INFORM US OF WHAT HOUSE YOU'D MOST LIKE TO BE PLACED IN.
The four houses are:
Gryffindor: Where dwell the brave at heart.
Ravenclaw: For those of wit and learning.
Hufflepuff: A home for those who are loyal and hard-working.
Slytherin: Whose members use cunning to achieve their means.
The Registry of Students: artists-at-hogwarts.deviantart…
If you are unsure which house would fit you, take this handy dandy quiz: www.personalitylab.org/tests/c…
If you do not tell us which house you want to be in, you will be listed as "Unsorted". And until you have noted the club to inform us which house you'd like to join, you won't be able to participate in any club activities. So be sure to tell us!
-First of all, this club is CANON ONLY. But it's more specific than that even. We decide what is canon or not based on what is in the BOOKS. If it's not in the books, then it's not considered canon. Even if J.K.Rowling herself said something about the characters, if it wasn't in the books, then it doesn't matter. For example: We don't care who wikipedia says a character married. If they are unnamed in the books, then it doesn't count.
-Respect is a favored trait here. People have differences, and may state them openly. Even if you disagree, there is no bashing allowed. Anyone caught with such behavior will be warned only once, and then kicked out of the group.
-Please respect your administrators! We're generally very happy and active people, but real life has a way of interfering. If things aren't happening fast enough for you, be patient, don't note us and demand to know why your art hasn't been accepted yet. We're only human
-You must be a member to submit to our gallery. Watchers cannot submit anything, you have to join.
-For now, we won't set a limit on how many pieces you are allowed to submit at once. However, be aware that they may not all be accepted in one day. We don't want to overload people's inboxes. if we get too much traffic, a limit will be set, but we'll tell you.
-Your pieces will automatically be sorted into the featured folder, and will be sorted into the appropriate folder after it has been there for a while. this way everyone gets some time in the main folder
-Submitting is easy as pie, just go to our Gallery and hit the button that says 'Submit to this Gallery' Then, go through your own works and choose what you want to submit.
-Only submit your own artwork! Don't steal that of other people. Anyone caught doing this will be kicked out, no warnings.
-Photomanips will be judged on a case by case basis. If your admins decide that it hasn't been edited enough, then it will be declined, sorry! ***If it goes against the deviantArt copyright policy, we will not accept a piece. The group gets blamed for having it just as much as an artist for making. I'm terribly sorry, but that's the way it goes.***
-Anyone can suggest a favorite, you don't have to be a member.
-There is no limit to the number of favorites you suggest, but please be nice about it. They all have to be sorted through by your admins, lol.
If any changes occur to these rules, you'll be notified, don't worry And that's it from me, welcome to the Group!!
