In accordance with FAQ #565: You prohibit the submission of 'pornographic imagery'; what do you consider this to be?, we cannot accept sexual actions, including the use of sex toys.

We may also reject any submission if it contains significant harm, including:
‣bleeding
‣bruising

‣impending death situations like suffocation, hanging, drowning, vore, falling from heights, death traps, gas, etc. Keep your damsels safe.

Added:
- NO FURRIES
- 3D art
- extreme tickling
- tentacles (there are other groups for this, and let's try to keep it focused on the ropes and gags, shall we?)
- overly sexual themes
- lack of restraints/bonds such as rope, tape, cuffs (etc)
- advertisement (If the drawing itself is in a preview version.)

While our mods may move your work to the correct folder, please try to submit your works correctly in the first place.

If you have any problems, send a note.

**** UPDATE ****

All five measly slots have been filled. Once I've done them, I will update this journal to accept five more. Until then, friends!

**** UPDATE ****

It's that time again. The leaves will be dropping soon, and it will begin to get cold! Soon after I will be forced to shovel and curse my existence as I walk to work in a blizzard, or attempt to kick my car loose that is stuck in snow. That said, it's still the best time of the year, and I hope you'll all enjoy it as much as I will try to.

So, onto the meat of the journal. I will be accepting requests this year, as is tradition it would seem! However, much like last year, I may not have as much time as I'd like. My goal this year will be identical, to draw 10 requests to post as gifts during Christmas (December, actually). I feel a little less sad this year that I can't do 25 pictures like I've done in the past, purely because I've already failed to do so once. Nobody expected me to do 25 this year.. Did they!? I hope not. If you did, please file your complaints to my notes and I will ask for your forgiveness.

Another thing! Like last year, I will be a bit picky with the requests. If I don't like the character, if I feel the request will be too difficult and take too much time, or anything like that, I may decline you and ask you to try again. Now, for the really important change to this year's rulings..

I will not be accepting any requests from last year's 10 right away (Whom are as follows: Wing-Saber, Green-X-13, SirKaijuOfVaudeville, SDKZERO, ShinBloodyTears, PoorUsername, Flashlight237, RySenkari, LinnaWinston, Erkal0). To enforce at least some other people get a chance to get a gift, since I've heavily reduced the number of requests I take. The first five requests must be from five other people. After I've done those, and assuming I still feel like I have time to comfortably do more, I will then take five more requests in which the above 10 people may request again.

This means that in things go very badly, I may only get five requests done this year. But if I'm being honest, I'm certain I can do 10, I'm just giving myself an out juuuust in case.

And to add to that, a TON OF OTHER RULES (Mostly copy and paste from last year) below. As always, failure to read the entire post will potentially spell your doom for getting a spot.

* The rules may be added to or changed at some point. If this happens, I will make a note about it.


---- Rules ----

The most important NEW RULE to be added is that I will not be accepting any requests from last year's 10 right away (Whom are as follows: Wing-Saber, Green-X-13, SirKaijuOfVaudeville, SDKZERO, ShinBloodyTears, PoorUsername, Flashlight237, RySenkari, LinnaWinston, Erkal0). To enforce at least some other people get a chance to get a gift, since I've heavily reduced the number of requests I take. The first five requests must be from five other people. After I've done those, and assuming I still feel like I have time to comfortably do more, I will then take five more requests in which the above 10 people may request again.

This is basically a first come first serve basis. Holding spots will not be permitted.

Beyond that, it is first come first serve like normal.

I won't draw nudity, but stuff like crotch ropes are fine.

Whomever you request has to be female, without a doubt (No traps or Poison or anything like that).

You must give me good references. If there's little available of the character you want me to draw, then I will likely decline. It's a recurring problem I have to deal with every year, so save me the trouble of asking you to get good references twice, please! Front, back, etc. If you can't provide me at least one reference with their entire body on display, I'd almost ask you to not even bother unless you can find enough material to make up for it (definitely possible).

Regarding references, sometimes they will not work when it comes time to draw a request, even if they did work when I originally accepted them. I'll be depending on you to find new references in this case.

You must be as detailed as possible with your request (either through describing it, getting picture references, or whatever). If I don't have to ask you any questions about your request you did a great job.

Do not be afraid to be super detailed. The more detail, the better for me! Just make sure you keep track of what you're asking for, as super long requests can be super confusing as well. That said, that doesn't mean you have to make an extremely complicated or involved request. The longer it would take me to draw your request, the less chance of me accepting it.

Your request can generally* only involve one character.

*I don't want to draw a kidnapper, but you can request it if you want to. However, there's a good chance I will not draw them, and if they're vital to your request you may want to think of something else. Feel free to confirm with me before hand.

The same goes for backgrounds, I don't intend to draw them, but it's possible. However, the more detailed a background you request, the less likely. Simple backgrounds (two or three lines to distinguish a floor/wall) are fine.

I won't be coloring the pictures. They will be black and white.

If you want your request to be private, let me know specifically. This does not mean your request will not be posted, just that the details will be hidden on my list.

Your account activity matters, more so this year than the previous times I've done this. If you haven't contributed much of anything then your request won't be accepted. Exceptions are possible.

I'll try to draw anybody that's requested (OCs, Western, Anime, etc.), but this year especially I'm looking for characters/requests I really like. Your OCs MAY be risky business, but you can always ask!

If you wish for me to draw the OC of a character you do not own, you must have permission from them, or "implied" permission (in case you want it to be a surprise to them, or something of that sort).

Some requests I may not accept. It could be from something as petty of me not liking the character. Another example is having drawn the character a lot, and being tired of them. If I do not accept your request/character choice, you are free to try again (as long as room is still available).

I'll be posting all the pictures on my DA account periodically through December. Once every two days is the intention, but may change.

Please send questions regarding rules via notes. It's easier on me to get back to you that way, despite the advantage of having a question answered and visible to everyone. I'm confident the rules are detailed enough that there shouldn't be too many questions.

Your request must be sent in full to me through note. Any requests posted in comments are not considered, and may not be replied to at all. You must also use the title 2015 Christmas Request for your note as well. This rule is solely intended to weed out those who don't bother to read the rules.

If it takes too long to finalize the details of your request with me, and all the slots fill up, that will be that. This refers to not being able to hold spots, so do your best to get a proper request the first time.

The requests must be within DeviantArt's rules as well. I want to upload everything to AVGDID's galleries eventually, and I cannot upload material that could risk the group's well-being.

I will not alter a character's age for the sake of your request. This is primarily to stop people from trying to turn a girl who is normally underage into an adult.

You won't have infinite chances to get your request accepted. Put some effort into your request! If it's too sloppy I may not give it the time it takes to read, or even to say "Try again!".

You're welcome to alter your request with me if you so choose, so long as I haven't already begun it. I will update the list to show whether I've started your picture or not so you can tell. No guarantees with this, of course.

I may take a day to reply to you. In that case, I will reply in order of the requests received. Feel free to hound me if I take too long (more than 24 hours), as I may have accidentally missed your request.

Depending on the person requesting, they may not be subject to all of the specified rulings. This mostly means if someone makes a mistake in their request, but they've done a lot for our community, I will gladly forgive them and help them make any corrections I need.


---- Rules ----


That is all. I will update the list periodically, both when I've worked on a picture and when I've accepted a request. Check back as often as you like.

I will hopefully get the first request or two done before my work vacation is over. After that I'll be short in time again, but should be able to draw on the weekends at least.

Looking forward to seeing your requests. Remember to follow all of my rules.

though i have to say that i can't help but find it hilarious that someone could be so prissy that one submission expiring is sufficient for them to pull all their work from the group and leave in a huff. heavens above knows what he'd do if his bus was late or he realised he'd run out of milk in the fridge! ^ ^

One thing I've noticed since joining this group and a few others like it, they like to ignore a lot of submissions. I have submitted a few of my stories here from months ago that are still awaiting approval. Not rejected. Just awaiting approval. I don't want to come off as rude but at least reject it if you don't want my stories in your group. Don't just let them sit there to gather dust.

Yeah, sorry about that. Its mostly my fault since I just started working, and I haven't dedicated the time to properly go through and check and accept each deviation. I'm going to be  a bit more on point with it, and I can attest that our new mod will assist in making sure that devations get through on a more proper timeframe. Again, I am sorry for the inconvenience, I hope to see more work.

things aren't ignored on purpose - there is a constant flood of submissions coming in to avgdid, and if none of the admins are around then a bunch may expire before they can be voted on. i've just logged in for the first time in a while, and have hundreds to sort through, and there will be a bunch at the end that have expired before i've even seen them.

it's a bit weird if your submissions are still marked as awaiting approval, though, if they're months old - they should expire after a week or two...
