In light of recent submissions for game art that aren't video game related, the Video Games folder is now the Games folder! Besides all your video game goodness, you can also find & submit card game art and tabletop art here!

Cheers!

Problems Q & A

Having some problems associated with The Nerdery? Hopefully, this Q & A will help.

*I want to join, but I'm getting a message that says you're not accepting any new members! What gives?
- Yeah, I don't know what's going on there. In spite of my fiddling around with the settings to make it so that anyone can join, this message still pops up for some people. The only work around I can think of is to send me (soren7550) a note saying that you wish to join, and I'll send you an invite as soon as I can.

*I found this art that looks like it's up your alley, but I'm not sure where to put it! Care to enlighten me?
- No problem! It's pretty basic what goes where, so here's the run down:

Featured - The best of the best are displayed here!

Games - All of the video game, card game, and tabletop game related works go here.

Cosplays, Accessories, Etc. - Basically, all your IRL works.

Movies, Shows - From the big screen to your home screen, you'll see them all here.

Comics, Manga, Anime - Get a load of all your Marvels, DCs, Shonens, Japananimes, and the like right here!

Favorites - All of the above are found here!

*Uh-oh, the work I wish to submit falls into multiple categories! Where should I put it?
- Well, that all depends on the work in question. For something more straightforward (such as a work with Korra and a Big Daddy), just submit it to the folders that it applies to (in this case, Games and Movies/Shows). But it gets complicated if the work you wish to submit could fall into one folder or another, depending on what the artist was trying to depict. Such as Batman. Is it a movie/show version, or a comic version? Or how about Pokemon? It could fall into either Video Games, Movies/Shows, and/or Comics/Manga/Anime!
In cases like that, try your best to figure out what the artist was going for, and make your judgement based off of that. If you're still not sure, push come to shove, put it in all the folders it can apply to.

*That's good to know. Now, any works you don't accept?
- As a general rule, try to only submit good, quality works, but that criteria can be subjective and vary from person to person. So try to use your best judgement when submitting something to the group.
The more solid no-nos are fan fictions and story driven comics. That is because since they can go on for quite a while, and can be very long, it's harder to determine if they're good or not, and again, that opinion can be subjective. But as of now, we're not accepting those works. Maybe in the future though!

I hope that helps clear things up.

Thanks for making such a great cosplay!

If there's any other cosplays that you feel would work with The Nerdery, feel free to submit them to our Cosplays/Accessories/Etc. category.

Tiny problem; I can't submit art to any folder other than Featured!

... huh. Don't think that's been a problem before. Regular Featured, or Favorites Featured?

There may be a chance that it's a minor bug that you can easily get around. Sometimes deviantArt thinks when trying to submit works to a group you're trying to add it to the favorites even when you're not. Just click on the 'Submit to Group Gallery' tab and you should be able to add art to the group as normal. 

Either way, I will try to poke around in the group settings.

Regular Featured; I'm trying to submit to the Games folder, but the only option I have for submitting is regular Featured.

Hmm. Dunno what to do about that. Just enter it in the one folder for now then. I'll move it once it's approved. In the meantime, you may want to contact deviantArt about the bug.

I have a bit of a question;

I've got some Magic: The Gathering fanarts I want to submit, but I don't see a category for them. I thought maybe the video games category, but since Magic is a trading card game and not a video game, I don't think that'd fit all to well. I just want to be sure what category they'd fall under?

That is a bit of a tricky one. At the moment, I just put MtG artwork in Cosplays/Accessories/Etc. (since the cards are a IRL thing), but I'll shortly change the Video Games section into Games, so that tabletop and card games can get some love here as well. 
So either or would work. After the name change, I'll just move any misplaced games work into the correct folder.

And thanks for taking the time to ask! Normally, submitters just dump work into one folder regardless if it's the right place or not.
