Membership for this group is also not automatically accepted here. There are two ways in which you can become a member:
1. You can send us an application and provide us with at least one link to one of your MLP deviations so that we may better review you. Please keep in mind that sending us a blank application may result in an auto-decline.
2. You simply receive an invitation from us.
If your application is rejected, it does not mean you are "bad" or your works are below our standards. The criteria for accepting an artist are higher than those for accepting artwork.
if you don't want to apply, but simply wish to see the deviations that we accept, you can always just add the group to your deviantWATCH.
Unless you are an artist, who was accepted into the group, you can't "just join" in the classic group sense - this was and still is a heavily moderated image featuring group in the mindset of good old "Drawfriend Stuff" - so it's being watched, not joined. The original idea is: A few active people ('staff'), who consume a lot of pony art anyways, share their findings with the rest of the world. Since these people should have developed a certain degree of taste after a few thousand pictures, chances are that the content quality of the group is therefore pretty high. It's meant to have a quality above the "mass groups" (mlp-fim etc), but with much more art than the "high quality groups" (iPonies etc)
"So, can I join?" - If you want to spend your time looking through a lot of pony art and sharing it with others, then you actually can. Just pm and poke those admins^^'
This is not (and was never meant to be) an archiving group (like the others such as mlp-fim), so .. yeah, the folders are a mess because no one ever took care of them^^' (edit: we are working on them!)
