It has come to my attention that we may be forgetting the focus of this club...
I have noticed a large quantity of Sora-pairing requests lately, and VERY LITTLE Sora-centered fanart requests/submissions. While I have no problem with Sora pairings, I feel that we need to try to remember that this is a Sora fan-art club. We definitely encourage you to submit your fanarts into our folders, but PLEASE please please don't submit requests for Sora-pairing fanarts, especially if they are not your drawings. I understand if you really like a Sora-pairing fanart, but there is really no reason for all Sora-pairing fanarts to be on this club. This is after all a Sora club, so if anything we should strive to get all Sora-centered fanarts on here.
As an alternative, you can always submit your favorite Sora pairing fanarts (that are not your drawings) to their rightful clubs. Those clubs were created for that purpose.
I understand if this seems upsetting for some of you, but please try to hear me out. There are two reasons why I am insisting on this:
1) This is a Sora Takenouchi fan club, currently the only fan club for this amazing character. I feel we are not giving Sora justice if most of her gallery is full of Sora pairings. After all, we don't like Sora just because she is with [insert name here], right?
2) My inbox is flooded with Sora pairing requests. While at first I had no problem with this, it started to hit me that practically every art request was for a Sora pairing. Again, it made me feel that people are forgetting the purpose of this club. There is also the fact that some of these pairing requests would take forever to get approved by their owners.
But this is not to say that Sora pairings are not allowed. I would just ask to minimize
the requests. Sora pairings requests submitted by the actual owners will be accepted, but if you are not the owner, then please restrain from requesting another person's Sora-pairing drawing into our gallery. If you really want it in that much, then note the artist to add it to the club.
If you have any comments, thoughts, suggestions, feel free to leave it here. After I think about this some more, and after hearing your opinions, I may revise this rule.
