.:EDIT:. The contest is now closed.
The judging is currently taking place, and the winners will be announced anywhere between 1 and 5 days from now, so Please bear with us while we decide :)
Thank you to everyone who entered! All of the entries were fantastic! And you all really captured the spirit of adoptables :D

Hello to the members of AdorablesAdoptables!

To celebrate our reaching of the 10,000 members mark, the staff have graciously put together a contest for all existing members of the group.
The theme is simple:
Design our group a mascot!

There are, however, a few simple rules & regulations that the participants will have to follow in order to create an entry for the contest.

All members who favorite this journal will be provided with one slot in a raffle hosted by the staff!

RULES
- The mascot HAS to be an animal. Human//Anthro entries will not be accepted.

- Stolen//copied designs will not be tolerated. Staff will not allow, nor accept any entries of the sort.
- There will be three entries allowed for each participant.
- You may enter under one account only. If you seem suspicious of increasing your entry limit by using multiple accounts, you will be disqualified.
- You MAY use bases.
- You must be a member of this group!

Hello everyone! The last 6 months have been pretty chaotic with the Group changing Founders 3 times, however, I'm pleasantly surprised to say that I'm now the new Group founder.

Our previous founder, AsaliKitten had her account deactivated, so she made a second account which was then deactivated again so here we are :)

I've never been great at these sort of introductions, but I'd just like to say hello to all of our members! I've enjoyed Administrating the Group since January, and I hope to continue helping out and expanding :)

If you ever need to contact me, please do so without the Group as I may not always be able to immediately reply, and I know any of the other Admin would be more than happy to help you!

If you have any ideas for how we can improve the Group, or any issues, please, by all means, share your thoughts! We wouldn't be here now, with 11,000 members without you all! From the Deviants who just joined DA this month, to the old-timers who've been here from the start! I look forward to sticking around for quite some time to watch this Group grow :)


Thank you everyone!

Group Rules & Regulations

Welcome to AdorablesAdoptables! Please make sure you are watching the journals section of the group for important updates from staff. The rules for this group may be found below. Please familiarize yourself with them.

We allow maker/game adopts, linearts & bases now

Refer to this: fav.me/d7idwq4 list for what's allowed in each folder


__________________________________________

Posted to the Wrong Folder?
Please note the group with the following:
:bulletyellow: Exact name of the deviation you submitted.
:bulletblack: Exact folder you submitted your deviation to.

Questions?
Questions are welcomed in the comment section.
Questions are welcomed to be noted to the group as well.

Advertising
Please do not advertise in the comment section. It floods the group and makes it difficult for staff to get to the people with questions. Failure to comply will be met with the following:

First Offense - Warning
Second Offense - Suspension for 1 Week
Third Offense - Banned

You have journals on your accounts. Please use those to advertise.
Please refrain from submitting your journals to the group.

Theft/Scamming
So you've found someone who's stealing adopts / scamming.
Please do not post in the comments section of the group.
Note the group instead with the following:
:bulletyellow: Name of the offender
:bulletblack: Link to their deviation
:bulletyellow: Link to the original deviation

Once you have done so I or another staff member will create a warning journal with the information you have provided as a group wide alert. A staff member will also hand out a ban and remove the stolen deviation from the group.

Noting the Group
Please do not note the group chain mail, advertisements, or general chat. Group notes build up and collect dust as there is no way to delete them. Doing this slows down our response to immediate issues that need to be dealt with. - Thank you.

Spamming
Please do not post "hi" or "hello" in the comments section. While it's okay to greet people, after a while these messages build up and we can not get to those whom have questions easily.

Bullying
We do not allow our users to bully others. This includes posting hate on another persons' adopts, trashing their name, nothing them hateful things, etc. If someone is bullying you please note the group with the following:
:bulletyellow: Name of person bullying you
:bulletblack: Screenshots (if it's through notes) or links (if in the comments section) of the bullying that happened
:bulletyellow: Where it happened (notes, comments, etc)

Please be aware that if you start harassing the person, swearing and acting in the same manor they did that you could face the same consequences as them. As hard as it may be when being harassed or bullied, please remain civil and never stoop to their level.

Bullying is an automatic ban

Hi, I was wondering if you could do a major clean-out. There are SO many closed adoptables and it would really help if you could just do one huge sweep and get rid of those. C:
