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.

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.

I Spy 5: Community Feature Project

Thu Oct 8, 2015, 10:00 PM

The Rules

You must feature 5 deviations by 5 different Deviants that you do not know very well or do not have a ton of exposure in a journal. Link your feature journal back to this journal for a collective feature later on.  You may choose a theme if you wish as a way to find your 5. Once you have been featured in a journal, you are tagged, and must continue by featuring your own journal of 5. If you have not yet been tagged and want to participate, please do! By viewing this journal, consider yourself tagged. Copy these rules in your own journal feature.

The Timeline

It begins when you see this. All journals must be linked to this journal no later than 11:59pm CST Nov. 6, 2015.

The Purpose

The purpose of choosing 5 deviants that you are not familiar, speak to as often, or are friends with is because this is an exercise to expand our community horizons. We all settle in to our comfort zones and hang out with our little cliques of friends. This is so that we go beyond that, find some fantastic new deviations, and bring exposure to those who we may not see as often. This feature series is open to all mediums, and can include different mediums in the same journal or person being featured.

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:
