Many uploaded pictures require me to make a "judgment call", and so these rules are only rough guidelines. Occasionally I will make exceptions, depending on an artist's history of staying on-topic, demonstrated commitment to keeping to the spirit of the Guidelines, or other special circumstances. If you find art in other artists' galleries that do not fit these rules, please do not assume that it means that that kind of art is okay to upload. These Guidelines should be considered authoritative. If you have questions about whether something is appropriate, please contact me and ask.
Thank you for your help in building the fan-artwork community!
