|To protect the world from devastatingly bad fanart.|
To unite all pokefans within our nation…
Alright, look: there’s a lot of pokemon fanart out there. A LOT. You don’t have time to sort through it all, but you still want access to the good stuff. That’s where we come in.
GPA is an exclusive group where all submissions are reviewed and only the best of the best works make it to the gallery. Sounds snotty we know, but it prevents inbox spam and insures you’ll only see great art.
So what do we accept? GPA will review and post quality examples of:
We do NOT accept:
-“original” (fan-made) characters
- trainer self-portraits (falls under fan-made characters, sorry)
-work that uses images from the official anime, manga, card games, or video games created by Nintendo and the Pokemon Company (ie violates copyright law)
-work reposted from other websites (if you didn’t make it, you can’t submit it)
Simple enough, right? Now, although we restrict submissions, anyone is welcome to join the club and contribute to conversations, polls, and other club activities. There are just two more things you should know before you join.
One: you must be okay with rejection. Due to our high standards, not everything you submit will get put in the gallery. In fact, you might not get into the gallery at all. Don’t take it personally! We have to be strict, that’s the whole point of the group.
Two: as a group devoted to all things pokemon, we will include work with character pairings. Any and all character pairings. That means het, yaoi, yuri, and even so-called crack pairings are welcome here. You will be expected to show tolerance toward other members at all times, whether or not you like the same pairings they do. We are VERY firm about this rule. Anyone caught flaming another member or making comments, direct or indirect, that involve homophobia, racism, or any other sort of hate speech WILL BE BANNED PERMANENTLY. Pairing-specific pages are easy to find. If you’re not okay with this rule, we suggest you join a different club.
In a nutshell, play nice with your fellow pokefans and respect the decisions of the mods and we won’t have any problems! Thank you and enjoy! -the mods
