there are some changes coming, and this is your first notice of them. these changes will take place at the beginning of the year in january, so you can't say we didn't warn you!; the main thing is the rules will be modified. certain things will become disallowed, and credits will (kind of already are) required for EVERYTHING, including effects, which brings me to the next point:
we are having a huge issue with people who refuse to credit effects.
you need to credit the effects that you use. no more of this "ask me" or "get your own" or any of that, it's disrespectful to the creators of the effects. they deserve just as much credit as the models and stages you use.this post
sums up a lot of good reasons why you need to credit effects pretty well, so please take a look at it if you haven't already!
crediting is becoming a huge issue when it really doesn't need to be. just credit everyone for their work. it's easy, and there's really no excuse not to be doing it.
also please remember that if you're not sure of where your submission to the group should go, we have the neutral folder for that! we get a lot of things submitted to the wrong folders so if you have doubts, use that folder.
we have a journal which includes explanations of what goes into each folder here!
so please check it out before choosing a folder and if you have any questions let us know!
