With the new year comes a new era of the Ock Masters, and with that change comes a need to remind everyone of the necessity of certain rules.
We will only allow contributions that feature Dr. Otto Octavius, Carolyn Trainer, Angelina Brancale, and of course, Alfred Molina! Yes, that meddling excuse for an arachnid is allowed, and yes, so are original and fan characters. Just make sure that Otto is presented properly--at center stage.
Respect all artists, writers, members, and other clubs. In a way, you represent the Ock Masters, and we wouldn't want to get a reputation for being nutcase fangirls, would we? (Well, even more than we have, anyway.)
Respect all work submitted. Even if you don't like something, suck it up and don't make a huge fuss over it. We're all Ottophiles here.
Try to make friends and have fun! Lord knows the Ock Masters has had more interpersonal problems than Oscorp Industries itself, but look, we're all Ottophiles here and we should be able to put our love for the Mastermind of Mechanical Menace above our petty squabbles.
Please be reasonably open-minded and respectful to all opinions regarding this club, members and non-members alike. If someone doesn't like Dr. Octavius and wishes to attack the club, please contact TheInimitableECypher or MasterPlanner so they may deal with them personally (and if need be, violently). There's no need you mere minions to fan the flame!
Please be aware that any and all submissions are expressions of the members submitting them. That being said, respect their opinions, please.
We are a club dedicated to Doctor Octopus and have the utmost respect for him here. So we will not accept porno, hentai, etc to the club. Although some of us (coughMasterPlannercough) like that sort of thing, you should really keep that to your own gallery. However, you may submit other "mature" submissions.
Do not take credit for artwork that is not your own! This will make that artist very unhappy. And trust me, you would not want to make an Ottophile unhappy. Capische?
There is no limit to how many contributions that you can make to the club. In fact, at this point send in as many as you can! However, at this point submissions are set so as to be only admitted with the votes of two administrators, so apologies for any delay.
Fanfiction involving Otto, Carolyn, Mary Alice, Angelina, etc. is not only welcome but is seized upon with cries of inarticulate fangirl joy. As with artwork, there is no limit to how many pieces you may submit.
As with artwork, no examples of Rule 34 are allowed in. Really. Some of us are still young and innocent here. However, Mature Content-marked pieces limited to cussing and violence (of course!) will be allowed.
We also approve of plushies, sculptures, pretty much anything related to the good Doctor O. And if you have any questions over whether something is acceptable, please contact MasterPlanner and she will let you know. Believe me, she will let you know.
If you violate any of these rules, TheInimitableECypher and her chainsaw will be sent after you, without hesitation. Repeated offenses will result in immediate and final termination of your membership. And you'll be glad that you came out of it without your flesh peeled off your bones.
That said...have fun!
[EDIT: This is OcksFusionReaction here, and I must warn you that, as The Master Planner implied, I will hunt you down. And I assure you, you WILL NOT make it out of my personal brand of arse-kicking in one piece. Follow the rules or I'm breaking out the chainsaw. ]
