Q: Why do you address yourselves as so^?
Arrr, because its fun, me maties! :iconjacksparrowplz:

Q: How can I join?
It's simple, just hit the "Join our group" button.

Q: How do we submit art to this group?
You can do it a couple of ways. You can go to the deviation you want to submit and click on the "submit to a group" button on the far right side of the screen, or you can hit the "contribute art" button on our front page.

Q: What type of art can be submitted to this group?
Poetry of any kind, except Found Poetry.
We do accept journal pieces as well be there must only have a poem in it, nothing else. Also we do not accept deviations which are a photo/drawing as the deviation and the poem in the artist's comment.

Q: Can I become an admin? If so, how?
Admin positions are open occasionally, so keep an eye out for them. But be warned you must be ready to sign your life to P.B.

Q: Why do my submissions take so long to go into the gallery?
Submissions to this group, unlike most other groups, are accepted by a vote of the admins. This sometimes takes awhile due to us being on and off line at different times.

Q: How do I advertise my contests, commissions, etc?
You advertise events but contacting one of La--Volpe, ChamberlainOfRavens or iChrno we will advertise it in our journal, newsletter or on our profile page.

If you have any other questions contact the group via note. Or you can comment on this journal, but keep in mind we're not alerted by the comments made on journals.

Do you accept poems in languages other than English?

For our gallery we accept any language but when it comes to our contests only English.

I'm interested in joining, but...I think 3 warnings for rule breaks is a bit too gentle. I mean if someone is harassing me one way or another, and then does it twice to me again or another, well that's not OK. I would have them kicked immediately. It's your group so I won't tell you what to do, it's just my opinion.

I think it's good that you're voting on the submissions however, otherwise you get an overloaded inbox with mediocre poetry.

It depends on the scenario. Abuse it something I don't stand for, so they would get kicked immediately and blocked. If it was overloading admin inboxes with submissions they wanted accepted they would get a warning.

And thank-you =D

Sorry for the late reply I only just found this comment.

It's fine. It sounds very reasonable ^^
La--Volpe Featured By Owner May 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Hopefully so. I never sure with rules, some people think my rules are unreasonable. I think they should stop breaking them.
KyeWriting Featured By Owner May 11, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
Your group, your rules. The call is yours, after all.
La--Volpe Featured By Owner May 11, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
True, but it's nice to make the majority happy.
