A few things have cropped up recently that haven't been addressed in the rules previously, or need to be discussed, so I'm going to talk about them here. They are: Generic Fallout Artwork, Ponies, and screenshots.GENERIC FALLOUT ARTWORK
It's always been stated in the rules that all deviations submitted to this group must be related to Fallout: New Vegas and not the other games in the series. A lot of people don't seem aware of this rule, so consider this a reminder!
Confused? Here's an example of things that are OK and things that are not OK:
Fan art/fanfiction featuring canon characters from Fallout: New Vegas
Cosplay of canon characters from Fallout: New Vegas
OCs that fit into the FNV world. This can mean couriers, NCR troopers, Legionaries, etc. As long as they're obviously from New Vegas then they're OK
Fan art/fiction solely featuring canon characters from any other Fallout game.
Cosplay of characters from any other Fallout game
OCs that are from any other Fallout game or are inspired by Nuclear holocaust themes in general. Also artwork that fits into the general nuclear apocalypse idea.
We've always been tolerant toward fan art inspired by My Little Pony, but since this has its own spin-off, a lot of people seem to be confused about what is and isn't OK to submit to the group.
Fan creations that are obviously ponified versions of characters from Fallout: New Vegas.
Fallout Equestria characters/OCs that fit into that world. Fallout: Equestria is set in a completely different world, and falls under the category of OCs from other Fallouts.
Screenshots have always been against the rules and will continue to be. Any submission that is a screenshot directly taken from the game, regardless of whether mods or photo-manipulations have been used, will be declined.
There is one exception to this rule and that is when someone has used a screenshot as a background for their own art. If the majority of the image is the artist's own creation, then it is OK. We will be using our discretion in this area.
Here's some examples from the gallery that show what is OK:
Phew! Hope that clears things up.
Remember that the majority of things that get declined are because they're submitted to the wrong category, so make sure you check!
