A-Team NORTH Division:
A-Team SOUTH Division
These rules exist to make life simpler and easier throughout the A-Team art alliance. They should be followed at all times, throughout the dA art team network of affiliates*
Failure to do so will result in a warning, then a ban.
If everyone just did these simple things, there would be no problems.
* Except for Evrything-4-Evryone, they have their own rules that existed before the Alliance..
If you have any questions, please note the group and we will get back to you ASAP. Or comment below.
Do not harass the members of the group on the comments page. Take that outside, preferably to a private conversation or notes.
DO NOT purposely torment the staff. We are here to help get you noticed, and if an admin is being rude to you, file a complaint by sending a note to
If you do harass them or disrespect them, without provocation, you will be banned- possibly without warning.
This also goes with the above rule: Listen to the admins. if they ask you not to submit to a folder, then please don't. this counts as harassment.
Try not to submit multiple copies of works or resubmit if it is declined. We don't usually decline if we don't have a good reason. If we made a mistake, We'll contact YOU. Note that we usually don't provide reasons when declining from the featured folder. That is usually because of the art quality.
No spamming, and no trolling*
On the group's page. The only exception to this is when we create journals SPECIFICALLY for that purpose, which we do sometimes as a fun group activity. But even on those journals, being outright abusive, or flaming still will get you kicked out or banned.
*Spamming includes repeatedly asking why you were declined. See above.
Do not advertise your group/page/deviation/journal on the comments page or journal WITHOUT PAYING first.
Advertising with us is cheap, and it is worth it- your points go to help the group help more artists succeed and be noticed. By not paying, you are robbing them of that opportunity, and risking getting kicked out. Repeated offenders will be banned, and their journals erased.
Journal ad spots are only 10 points, and these ads are simulcast across the ArtTeam network of groups. So yeah, it is worth it!
Note the group or for advertising opportunities.
Don't be a fave hog. Don't fill them up with your own art, or it will be
removed and you kicked out or banned.
Do not submit art or say mean things and then leave, you will be banned.
If you'd like to affiliate, then the tab is on our page.
DO NOT under any circumstances impersonate an admin. This will get you kicked out and/or banned.
Instead, report the incident to us and let us handle it.
Do not steal artwork. Thieves will be removed and banned.
We are creating a hotline, so if you see stolen art in our gallery, note us and provide links.
If you'd like us to feature an artist, then note us. Prices vary depending on contests, etc.
Do not try to make multiple accounts to cheat in contests and group activities. It's not fair and you will be reported to the admins (of dA)
If you suspect a cheater, then PM our hotline. Just send us a note and our investigators will look into it. But don't argue on the page or BOTH of you could be removed.
Mark mature art as mature or face the consequences. This is a dA rule. In fact, mature art not submitted to the mature folder will be removed even with a filter (because it doesn't belong there.)
Be sure to follow these rules at all times, and have fun!
Remember, if you have any questions or suggestions, note the group ^-^
