Hello fellow Cheetah enthusiasts!

As it is clear to anyone who takes serious interest in this group, I have not been active in the group for a long time.  This is not due to any lack of interest or a loss of passion about cheetahs and conservation, but simply the demands of life outside the internet.  I work full time, have multiple other time-consuming commitments, and everything I used to be involved in online has completely fallen out of my lifestyle.

However cheetahs and conservation still occupy much of my thoughts, as does this group.  I feel like it has been a great place for people to gather, share art, and learn about cheetahs, and I don't want that to die just because I don't have time for an internet life.  So, effective immediately, NinjaCheetah has been elevated to Co-Founder and is now in charge of the group.  I have confidence that she will do an excellent job in my continued absence.

I apologize to those of you who have expected more from the group and hope you will stick with it during this transition.  And I do hope to return someday.

December 4th is coming!  Make it another great year of raising awareness about cheetahs!

Most sincerely yours,

bcbdrums

Welcome!



Welcome to Save-The-Cheetah! We are a group dedicated to raising awareness about the endangered Cheetah and helping to give to the cause when we can! Visit our About Us page to learn more!






Rules



Please read all of the rules before submitting art! Thank you.

Behavior & Membership:


:bulletyellow: Membership is open to anyone, just click the join button!
:bulletyellow: Please be courteous to members and admins at all times, no matter the situation. If you are found to be discourteous, you will receive up to three warnings, the ultimate penalty being removal from the group.
:bulletyellow: No arguing with admins about the rules. They are what they are, and if you cannot accept them, find another group. And remember that the Founder has final say on all rules.

Art Submissions: The Basics


:bulletgreen: Only five submissions per day to the main gallery. Submissions to favorites will be unlimited. Submissions are voted on by admins before accepted.
:bulletgreen: Please submit to the correct folder. If you do not, your piece will be declined and you will be asked to resubmit.
:bulletgreen: Be descriptive in your deviation description! More specifically, if you are submitting a photo, state if it was taken in the wild or at a zoo/preserve. If you don't say otherwise, we will assume the photo was taken in captivity.
:bulletgreen: Mature content in the form of violence will be permitted, as long as it is not overly gory (essentially, no organs or entrails showing; blood, muscle, and bone is permissible). If the admins feel your piece requires a mature content censor for the gore, we will request you add one before the piece can be accepted. No sexual content in any form will be permitted. Foul language within a deviation will not be permitted. The admins decide what is foul and what isn't.

Art Submissions: Content


:bulletorange: Every piece of art submitted to either the gallery or favorites must contain a cheetah. The cheetah does not have to be the focal point of the piece, but it should figure prominently. We will decline pieces that just have a tiny cheetah in one corner, or something like that.
:bulletorange: Be respectful to cheetahs in your art. This is a serious group that seeks to honor cheetahs. Pieces that depict them either grossly unrealistically or simply incorrectly will be declined. For example, if you submit a bright pink cheetah, this will be declined. A cheetah with the anatomy of a tiger will be declined. Please, be accurate. Cheetahs with human hair or other human features will be declined. Which leads to the next rule...
:bulletorange: No anthro, and no OC spam. Sorry, this isn't a group to promote your OC, and it's certainly not about sexualizing animals. It's a group about cheetah conservation. This doesn't mean you can never submit your OC; as long as it is tasteful and does reverence to the cheetah in both anatomy and the situation it is depicted in, it may be accepted.
:pointr: No pictures of cheetahs with other animal features, such as wings, horns, beaks, or otherwise. No animal hybrids either. Again, this group is about honoring the cheetah as it is.
:pointr: No literature about sentient cheetahs (basically, your OC) will be accepted.
:pointr: We do understand and allow for creative license in terms of the stylizing of your cheetahs in your artistic vision. But the overall rule to remember is that this group is about cheetah conservation. We're not here to advertise for you or show off your OC. Try the-cheetah-archive instead for that.

:bulletorange: Literature and poetry that figures cheetahs prominently will be accepted, as long as it's not just OC fiction (see above). Literature about conservation will of course be accepted.



:bulletblue: Some pieces that were submitted long ago which don't completely adhere to the new rules are being permitted to stay in the group, out of respect to the previous group owners and their rules; other pieces, however, which fell too far outside of the new rules have been removed.
:bulletblue: It's always possible that exceptions might be made to some of the rules, depending on the artistic vision of a piece. You are always free to ask us if an exception can be made.
:bulletblue: If you see a deviation in the wrong folder, please let us know so we can put it where it belongs. This is especially important for the Wild and Captivity Photos folders.
:bulletblue: If you ever have a question about anything, please send a note to the group and an admin will answer it promptly!

When I went to Kenya, I was hoping I would see cheetah. It took us a week of looking to find any, and then we were told we were very lucky, as we were the first people to see them for over 6 months. It goes to show how endangered these creatures are, when a man who searches for something for a living doesn't see any for over 6 months.
