Movie Fanart Rules

Movie Fanart Rules

Postby akovia » Thu Dec 19, 2013 2:30 am

Please Note:
Moderator decisions are FINAL. Uploading the same image without adjusting what was requested will not be tolerated.
This does not mean you can't ask for a second opinion from another mod if you feel strongly enough that your image was done within the rules, but you had better make sure you are in the right as no mod wants to second guess another mod and will tend to side with the mod unless it's a clear discrepancy. You should ALWAYS start by opening a dialog with the original mod first before asking for a second opinion, and please attach the original deny conversation when getting a second opinion.

Not every rule can be explained in a little bullet point which is why there are some rules that just don't fit into this list. If you want to ensure your success, you should also see this post.
