You do not have to have lived through or been born in the 80’s in order to join. You just gotta be a fan of the decade.
All forms of art and all skill levels are welcome. Artistic nudity is also allowed, however we reserve the right to not accept any submissions that we feel focus more attention to specific parts, rather than the artistic merit.
While there is no minimum requirement of deviations for a member to submit to the group, there is a maximum of 3 submissions per week to each of the folders (not including "Featured"). This helps prevent spamming watchers to death.
We like to have our “Featured” folder have something from each member. You can only submit 2 deviations per year to this folder, so choose your best 80’s pics to truly represent you. They MUST be fully finished pieces, not doodles/sketches, on lined or graph paper, or be of poor quality. Viewers go to this folder expecting some degree of quality, so please choose wisely.
You will be kicked out if you do any of the following:
-Submit something blatantly rude and offensive.
-Submit stolen work.
-Act like a dick to other members.
-Spam the front page.
-Submit to the wrong folder too many times. (If you’re not sure which folder to submit to, you can always ask.)
Submissions into wrong folders will not be accepted. If your submission is denied, this may be why. Simply try again, but into the correct folder.
Just have fun!
