Alright! Since we didn't have too many apps the admins were able finish up things pretty quick this time.
First off, Welcome new members!! We hope you will enjoy your time here in our group :] We're looking forward to seeing characters making new friends!
We should have sent requests to submit your app into our gallery. If we somehow missed you, please tell us so we can send one over.
On another note, some people were wondering why their apps were rejected, so here is a list of reasons why we rejected some apps
History was too bland/unoriginal/cliche. Some histories were really hard to understand and simply unreasonable age-wise so they were unfortunately rejected.
Application does not meet our requirements. (History under word limit, character not a full body, etc.)
The character was not an effective gijinka. We received lots of humans with animal attributes, or simply just clothes of the same colour as the pokemon, but does not actually resemble the pokemon itself.
For Cove and Arcane, we received more applications than there were slots, so the best ones were selected.
Lastly, thanks to the admins who helped out with the commenting, judging, and editing!
Have a great day everyone and feel free to pop into the chats!Update Jan. 5th
Join Requests are officially closed!!
Thank you for everyone who applied for this opening! Judging will be taking place tomorrow and new members will be accepted within the next 2 days!
Best of luck to all the applicants!
So at last, we're finally having the long awaited 2nd opening~!
The group will be open for join requests from
Sunday, Dec 30th @ 9:00am (PST) until Saturday, Jan 5th @ 6:00pm (PST)
Please fill out the application sheet below along with the correct information in your artist's description.
Please refer to this journal
for information on what is required in your application.
IMPORTANT! Please check our slots to make sure the pokemon you are applying as is available.
In order to join:
1. Click "join our group" on the side bar of our front page
2. Include in the description (of the join request): what pokemon, which area, and link to the application from your gallery
3. Send the request and await admin approval.
4. If you are accepted we will notify you and send a submission request for your app to be included in our gallery.
PLEASE NOT THAT ONCE YOU'VE SUBMITTED THE APP, THERE WILL BE NO MORE CHANGES. So please make sure your application meets all the requirements before you submit it.
As always, we will be judging the applications based on the following:
Effectiveness of Gijinka
Character information (History)
Activeness (*note: this is a new addition to this opening. We want members who will actually be active around the group, and we will judge that by seeing how often you submit as well as your activity with any other RP groups
The following will result in Join requests to be automatically rejected:
User is under 4 months old on dA (please specify if you have moved accounts)
History under 250 words at the time of submission
Sketches, unfinished art, chibis, non-fully bodies
Failing to fill in the correct information in your join request description
We will do application checks anytime from now until Midnight Dec 29th (PST).
We will no longer do any checks once the opening starts and its always nice to get feedback before you submit so our suggestion is to get those apps done early!
Judging will take place on SUNDAY, JANUARY 6th.
That's it, again, thanks for your interest and support in our group!
