EDIT: It's come to my attention that dA has a nasty group submission glitch, which is causing submissions to look like they are being submitted to the wrong folder half of the time, even if they are submitted correctly. Hopefully dA fixes this soon...

Hello people!
I first want to thank those of you who have taken care to submit your deviations to their proper folders. It really helps the group run smoothly!

But, for some unknown reason, there has been a very unusually high volume of people submitting loads of submissions to the wrong folders in the past 3 days alone. I am not sure why, but that's what's been going on. To show some numbers, about 38 out of the last 50 were incorrectly submitted, which is not normal for this group.

So, to remind everyone, we do have a Folder Submission Guide linked on the group's front page, and below. If you are not sure where something should go, DO NOT GUESS. As you can see by the numbers I gave you, it creates quite a lot of unnecessary traffic for us admins to go through and correct every single wrong submission.

If you do not know where something goes, please consult the submission guide. If you can't at the moment, or just don't feel like it, please don't submit anything to the group. There's a good chance you will submit incorrectly and the deviation will be rejected anyway.
If you still cannot figure it all out after consulting the guide, please free to ask any of us admins on the front page. We would love to help you!

Here is the submission guide:…

Happy pixelling!
Late last year we ran a poll, asking you guys what you would like to see implemented into the group to make it more enjoyable. Many of you stood behind the idea of a ribbon or badge rewarding system, and we promised to make that happen.
Well, here we go!

The Pixel Palace Award Ribbons

Blue Ribbon by Inemiset

Blue Ribbon It's the most-valuable ribbon.
It can be obtained by:
- Winning first place in a group contest.
- Donating over 80 :points: to the group.
- Being noticeably/extremely helpful to the group in any way.
- Exchanging 3 Red Ribbons
It can:
- Be cashed in in exchange for a 1 month feature slot.
- Be saved up, and when 3 are collected they can be cashed in in exchange for 100 :points:

Red Ribbon by Inemiset

Red Ribbon The second most-valuable ribbon.
It can be obtained by:
- Winning second place in a group contest.
- Donating over 50 :points: to the group
- Exchanging 3 Yellow Ribbons
It can:
- Be cashed in for a 3-week feature slot.

Yellow Ribbon by Inemiset

Yellow Ribbon The third most-valuable ribbon.
It can be obtained by:
- Winning third place in a group contest.
- Exchanging 5 Honorable Mention ribbons.
It can:
-Be cashed in for a 2-week feature slot.

Honorable Mention Ribbon by Inemiset

Honorable Mention Ribbon
It can be obtained by:
- Entering a group contest
- Offering prize art or at least 30 :points: in a group contest.
- Participating in bi-weekly challenges (coming soon).
It can:
- Be cashed in for a 1-week feature slot
- Be saved and, when 5 are accumulated, exchange them for a Yellow Ribbon.

About Exchanging Ribbons for Donated Points:

- Donating is cumulative. This means you can donate, for example, 20 :points: one week and 30 :points: another week to earn a Red Ribbon.
- Keep in mind that it has to be a "donation." That means you get nothing in return, including features. So purchasing a Feature Slot does not count towards this.
- It's also encouraged to donate it all at once, so you don't have to keep track of how much you have donated to the group, and you don't have to remind us of it. It's just easier that way.
- Donated points cannot be used for more than one type of ribbon. What does that mean?
Say you donate small amounts over a spread of time. If you want a red ribbon, you are free to request one when you hit the 50:points: mark! But you can't say, oh, and let me donate a little more and then ask for a blue ribbon too. You either wait until you get the blue ribbon, or start over after you get your red ribbon.
Why? This keeps the values of the respective ribbons in check, and makes sure the group does not go bankrupt :XD:

Ribbons will be awarded accordingly to the participants of the contest conducted right before this announcement.

Next on the agenda: Bi-Weekly Challenges

:bulletpurple: What do think about having Bi-Weekly Challenges? A prompt is given, and anyone who wants to can create a piece of pixel art that fits the prompt, just for fun!

:iconknightplz:New Member Must-Reads:iconknightplz:

You are encouraged to read these before you do anything else in the group:

- Group Rules…

- Submission Guide…

:bulletpurple:Submitting to Featured:bulletpurple:

Members do not have permission to submit to the Featured folder. If you wish to submit something to Featured, you must submit it to the Gallery first (and to the right folder), and then send a note to the group with your request. If your request is granted your deviation will be moved to the Featured Folder by the Founder or a Co-Founder. Contributors can submit to featured after a vote.


- Join Requests to Contributors are open.
- If you want to be a Contributor you must:
~ Not be new to dA
~ Know the basics about pixel art, but you don't have to be a great artist
~ Must have some Group Admin experience
~ Must know and follow the Group Rules
~ Must be able to log on to dA at least once every three days
~ Must help with voting in submissions and voting for contest winners
~ Must help out with answering questions members might have
~ Must be responsible, helpful and friendly
- If you feel like you can't be a Contributor anymore, you may leave that group if you wish, but I would be really glad if you stayed as a Member than if you left altogether :)

:bulletpurple:Submitting to Favorites:bulletpurple:

- If you see pixel art you like that is not in our gallery, but is by a non-member, feel free to suggest it to the group favorites. All I ask is that you just be sure that it follows the rules.


- Contributors, please feel free vote on a submission if you see there needs to be a vote, especially on Featured works where we need many votes.
- If you vote to decline, please comment why you did so in the submission process.

Please don't forget we have a donation pool on my page, so if you would like to donate, please do :D

I have A question,When making a pixel art in Minecraft,it is cheating that I use a program that will convert the colors into Minecraft blocks? so that I'll spend less time in thinking what blocks to use and will stop making a color related problems?
