Hello everyone!

After going over the responses to our last journal, we have decided that there needs to be a slight tweaking of the rules to reduce flooding and increase the quality of submissions.

What will (hopefully) make our quality rules moot is going to be a simple reduction in the submission limit. It will be changed from 3 down to 1 submissions per week - so make sure to only submit your best! We are having some technical issues in changing the submission limit at the moment, so we're going to have to work on the honour system for now.

The following are the rules that have been updated or added (I will leave the current rules, found here:… unchanged for a few days so that everyone can compare the changes and voice their opinions), the rest will remain the same:

- From now on, you may submit only the FIRST CHAPTER of multi-chapter fan fictions, or the FIRST PAGE of multi-page comics (we will strike the four page rule for fan fictions from now on)
- If you are submitting a work with an OC, you MUST state in the artist's comments that it is an Avatar OC (mostly so we know it's going to the right folder). If we can't tell, it will be declined.
- If you are submitting a work with a character from another fandom, you MUST state which fandom it is from (again, so we know it's going to the right folder. We're not familiar with every character from every fandom)
- You may not submit multiples of the same or similar image - If you have multiple angles of a sculpture, multiple versions of a drawing (i.e., one coloured, one not), multiple similar images from a photoshoot, etc. please choose either the BEST image, or combine them into a single image.
- We will not be accepting low quality works - we're going to be fairly lenient here, but essentially, we won't be accepting things like simple line drawings with flat colours or sketch dumps (there are, of course, always exceptions to this rule, as there are some pretty fantastic flat-colour pieces and sketches out there) (I will be including some more definite examples in the official rules when they're updated. If anyone would like to kindly allow me to use some old art or sketches as examples of art we will NOT be accepting, please let me know!)

We are also going to be much stricter when it comes to screenshots and traces - if it looks like a screenshot, or like it has been directly copied from a screenshot (whether traced or not), it will be declined. Because of this, we are recommending that anyone who can closely emulate the style of Avatar keep WIPs of your work and copies of any references used to show us in case we mistake something for a trace or screenshot when it really isn't.

Because we are restricting the gallery, we would like to remind everyone that the favourites folder is anything goes! As long as it's all-ages appropriate, you may submit anything Avatar-related to the favourites folder

And finally, as some of you may know, I am not the original founder of the group. I had a request recently to remove some artwork, and through that it has come to my attention that this group is actually much older than I thought, and we still have artwork from before the group system was put in place by dA. Because many of those pieces were submitted years ago, and the original artists may not be aware that they are still in our group and connected to them only via a link in the artist's description, I will be removing these old pieces from the gallery.

If you have any objections, questions, or suggestions regarding the new rules, please feel free to ask

:pointr::pointr: Avatar :pointl::pointl:
Water. Earth. Fire. Air. Only the Avatar was the master of all four elements. Only he could stop the ruthless Fire Nation from conquering the world. But when the world needed him most, he disappeared. Until now... On the South Pole, a lone Water Tribe village struggles to survive. It's here that a young Waterbender named Katara and her warrior brother Sokka rescue a strange boy named Aang from a cavernous iceberg. Not only is Aang an Airbender--a race of people no one has seen in a century--but they soon discover that Aang is also the long lost Avatar. Now it's up to Katara and Sokka to make sure Aang faces his destiny to save the tribe--and himself. Did we mention he's only 12?

:pointr::pointr: Legend Of Korra :pointl::pointl:
Republic City is everything that Avatar Aang and Fire Lord Zuko fought for when they ended the Hundred Year War. With balance restored to the four nations, benders and non-benders can live together in peace, in this thriving metropolitan area. But even the steampunk paradise of Republic City has its problems, as the next Avatar discovers. When Avatar Korra arrives in Republic City to master her airbending, she comes face to face with criminal bending gangs as well as members of a vocal anti-bending revolution. Before long, Korra's Avatar skills are put to the test when she encounters a group of Chi-blockers led by the charismatic and mysterious Amon, who threatens the city and all the benders in it. Despite the immense danger, Korra vows to fight the growing anti-bending revolution. But will she be able to stop Amon before he rises to power and makes his vision of a bending-free world a reality?

Excuse me Avatar fans, but do you think a fanfic character from a superhero genre series, that happens to have pyrokinesis and heat vision, he's hot-headed, his mother left him when he was Little for the sake of his life, he was mistreated by his father, scarred, banished by an anti-hero organization, lived confused among his true destiny and later became an ally for the good guys is a rip-off from Zuko?
