    K I've been talking about making this thread for eons, here it finally is. Unfortunately losing our old rule thread means a lot of rules have been lost to the aether, so don't be surprised if you see more rules being added as we go along. Not following the rules will either result in post deletion or thread locks, with a possibility for infraction.

    1. Three pieces minimum of original artwork to start a thread - This is probably the rule we see broken most so it goes at the top. This generally refers to images, so it's perfectly acceptable to have three different pictures/drawings/photos of the same thing, as long as they're not the exact same image.
    2. This forum is for original art, including digital art, drawing, painting, sculpting, written works and music, among others. We have megathreads dedicated to writing, music and an entire subforum for spriting/banners. However, we don't allow non-scratched sprites, photo-collaged artwork, avatars, or banners in art threads, so please use the Smeargle's Laptop subforum for these.
    3. Please keep content appropriate. Please do not make posts that are hateful or racist in nature. In addition, please do not post pornography or explicit, gore-intensive images or requests. Non-explicit works that are more suggestive will be judged on a case-by-case basis. Do your best to use hide tags and warn viewers if you're not sure your image is appropriate.
    4. Do not necrobump threads if you're not the thread owner. Exceptions are community projects and starred threads. While we allow the creator to necrobump their own threads with content, as well as double/triple/500 post (within reason, if it's within 24 hours of your last post, try and avoid it), we ask that everyone else avoids bumping year old threads with comments.
    5. DO NOT PLAGIARISE. I SHOULDN'T EVEN HAVE TO SAY THIS. Plagiarism will be met with hefty infractions, so don't do it.
    6. Do not advertise. Especially, do not advertise other people's art. If they want to show off their art, they can make their own thread.
    7. Try to put some substance into your posts. Posting one-liners, e.g. "great", "good", "cool" -- will get your point across, but don't really add anything to the forum! You can press the like button on posts that you like. If you genuinely enjoy someone's work, please say why!
    If you have any questions about this forum, please ask any of the official Smeargle's Studio council:



    Thank you!
