Member Guidelines




We're here to help provide you with easy access to stock photos for your next big project. This group is focused on unrestricted stock items for the creation of premade backgrounds. Only unrestricted stock will be accepted. Feel free to browse our gallery, and our listed stock providers. This group is an extension of full stock groups The-Stock-Directory Fantasy-Stock-Group and Joint-Stock. If you are seeking other types of stock, be sure to go there and check out the gallery!

We have a philosophy with this group: This Group does not belong to just one person or an elite few. It belongs to all our members equally. Everyone has a say in how the group is run, what changes are made, and can submit announcements or contests for the blog. We do not participate in the snobby, elitist mentality. We welcome and support each other and our new members.

.:-Membership-:.
You must be a stock provider to join the group. All stock submitted must be available to use in the creation of premade backgrounds.

If you are an artist or provider who wishes to make premade backgrounds, but do not let others make them with your stock, please watch the group instead.

We try to be a friendly and supportive group towards our members, watchers, and guests. Harassment in any form will not be tolerated. If you are found to be harassing, belittling, or otherwise involved in destructive behavior towards a fellow member, you will be immediately removed and banned from the group. This is a non-negotiable policy and is not restricted to group activity. Violations will also include inappropriate behavior in other groups, profiles, journals and so on.

We Take A Stand Against Cyber-Bullying in ANY form.

My group :iconlegitimate-stock: give me too much work for a good management of the other groups I belong to, so I decided to leave your group. I hope you wouldn't worry about my decision: I keep the contact, of course, with the affiliation if you accept it. :hug:
