. Some things to remind

Due to the fact that there are many wrong join requests and submissions I would like to remind you of our most important rules.

:bulletblack: JOIN REQUESTS:
If you would like to join this group, please keep in mind that this is a photography group for bloody, macabre and dark artworks. If you haven't got such photos in your gallery, please feel free to watch us instead of joining us, as we really would like to have active members.

:bulletblack: SUBMISSIONS:
The most important thing when it comes to submissions is the folder system. Please submit your photographs to the correct folder. If you would like to submit something without blood choose the folder "Dark.Emotional". For every other photograph there are the two other folders. If you are not sure about our folder system, this blog entry could be helpful: Folder-Descriptions.
Please also keep the submission limit of two photos per day in mind.

It would be really nice if you could remove photographs which you put in your storage from our folders. This is important, especially when it comes to the "Featured" folder because we show a random photograph from this folder on our profile page and it could happened that such a stored deviation appears here which doesn't look very good. The same counts if you left the group. It would be very nice if you delete the workings you submitted to this group.

From time to time I browse trough all the members of the group and kick out everyone which is no longer a member of dA. Due to this fact the number of group members drops sometimes. This is because I want active members which be a real part of the group and add something to it. But don't worry, I will not kick out anyone with an account on dA.

I have updated the "Important Information" on our profile page and hope that you can find the most important rules easier now.
We have  about 1.000 members and we are only two admins so please keep these rules in mind to make sure that this group works as efficient as possible.
Thank you for reading and always enjoy the blood!
