About Us, Rules, etc. . .

:pokeball: Welcome to Nuzlocke-Challenge! :pokeball:

:bulletred: What are we?
Nuzlocke-Challenge is a group dedicated to the Nuzlocke challenge. Don't know what it is? Look here! www.nuzlocke.com/

:bulletblack: What do I submit?
Submit anything ranging to your own fan-comics, fanfics, fanart of the original, or your own custom Nuzlocke rules!

:bulletwhite: How do I join?
Just click the "Join our group" button.
- You don't need to ask to join!
- Join as a member and you will be able to contribute your Nuzlocke to the group; do not apply to the "Contributor" position, as that is a staff role within the group.

:pokeball: Any questions?
If you have any other questions, please note the club!

:pokeball: If you have any questions or concerns applying to the group or your Nuzlocke, please notify us via note.


:pokeball: Please try to submit your Nuzlocke to the correct folder. If you don't, we will deny it and ask you resubmit correctly.

:bulletred: "Featured" is very specific - only the first entry of the main part of your Nuzlocke goes here.
:bulletwhite: "Nuzlocke Comics 4" and "literature Nuzlocke" take the rest of your Nuzlocke proper, (including written and picture logs,) as well as any side stories/bonus comics/etc. - with one exception, which is:
:bulletblack: "Q&A Nuzlockes". Fairly self-explanatory.
:bulletred: "Prologues and background info" should also be fairly straightforward, but one of our most common mistakes is people submitting prologues to "Featured" (and vice versa, submitting first pages here) - so please be careful, prologues go here, not there! And of course, background info i.e. world-building fits here, too.
:bulletwhite: "Custom Nuzlocke Rules" has a similar problem - please submit rules here, not to "Featured"!
:bulletblack: "Artwork 2" is for just about everything else - cover pages, team profiles/ref sheets, memes, sketches, fan art/gift art, etc. 'Cover pages' is underlined because those are also one of the most common things to be incorrectly submitted to "Featured".
:bulletred: other folders are for group events and should not be submitted to otherwise.
Following these rules makes it easier for readers to find your comic!

:bulletred: PLEASE add a link to your title page and/or prologue on your first page comment section. The admins of this group do not have time to search through your gallery looking for them!

let us know about...
:bulletred: Shout-outs
:bulletwhite: Contests (your own or others)
:bulletblack: Any other information about Pokemon and Nuzlockes

...so that we can spread the word!
So, I've been teasing at it for a while, and now I think it's time to officially open our first awards events!  Get excited people!  It's time to recognize the best of what our community has to offer. =-)

***DISCLAIMER: this awards event is not tied in to the Year-End Extravaganzas held by the official Nuzlocke forums in any way!  Different organizers, and different pools of members, as we know many people here on dA are not on the official forums.  We've also specifically tried to highlight different kinds of awards to distance ourselves from the Extravaganzas - that's why there are less skill-based awards here and more community-oriented awards - and why we're doing this in summer instead of winter.  We're not trying to compete with the forums at all.  They'd crush us anyway. X-D***

For a quick summary of how this will work: we'll have about a month of open nominations first, where everyone in the group can nominate whoever they want for any of awards categories.  Once the nominations period is over, an awards committee will be selected, and they will deliberate to decide on the winners from the top nominees.  We thought this would be a good balance between letting everyone get involved and preventing any potential "popularity contests".  Sound good?

Okay!  So, you want to start making your nominations now, right?  Below is the list of all the awards we'll be giving.  You can make up to three nominations per award; copy the list below and paste it into a note to send to the group (please refrain from nominating yourself for anything).  Don't worry if you can't fill it out completely just yet, or if you think you might change your mind - if you ever just want to add to or change your nominations ballot, just reply to your first note with your updated ballot!

:pokeball::pokeball::pokeball:
Since this is our first awards ceremony, we aren't going to put a time limit on who you can nominate - however long it's been since a story/creator has been inactive, they're eligible this first time around!
*Need help remember what events we've had?  Well, there's the Spring '12 Battle trade, the Nuzlocke Challenge Olympics, the Fall '12 Halloween collab, the NOCT1, and the current Monotype tournament!  (btw, the Tournament now has hit the 50 battles mark!)

Nominations will be open through Friday, August 15th.  Enjoy!  Feel free to ask questions below.

Oh hey! I finished the pic to the Gotta Draw 'Em All contest by :icondswalton:
It's a normal drawing (paper pencil), would it be ok if I take a pic of the drawing or does it have to be on a tablet-like drawing file? ^^; (I just made no snese there lol)

Hi!
I'm redoing my comic about my Nuzlocke Challenge on Sapphire. However, with the new upload on DeviantArt, it is now possible to create a Motion Book. I don't know if I'll do that since it seems difficult to use, but my question is: can Motion Book be posted on the group?

Another question, are there any rules concerning submitting? As in:
Can we only submit "X" amount a day?
