Good news! We have decided to extend this opening a week further than usual. Instead of closing on Friday, February 28th, we will now be closing at 9:00PM EDT
on Friday, March 7th
. This gives everyone a full week extension to ready your characters and complete your applications! Please feel free to ask if you have any questions./END EDIT
Outcast Academy is open now! We will be accepting applications from now until Friday, February 28th
. Opening a little later than normal this time so we’ll stay open a little later too, until 9:00 PM EDT
Please take note of the following instructions in addition to our FAQ
for submitting your character application.For New Applicants:
1. Complete the application
and upload it to your gallery.
2. On OA’s main page, click “Join This Group”.
3. Copy/paste a link
to the deviation of your application into the text-box of the request.
4. Submit the request and wait for a note
after the end of the open period, which will contain your results.For Existing Members:
1. Complete the application and upload it to your gallery.
2. On OA’s main page, click “Send a Note”.
3. Put the word “Application” somewhere in the title of the note and copy/paste a link
to your application in the body of the note.
4. Submit your application and wait for a reply to your note at the end of the opening, just like before!
Remember that you may not bring two new characters into the story at the same time! This means that new applicants may not
submit more than one character for consideration.
Please remember also that only complete applications will be considered. Make sure your link is there and works, and that all of the information
is in your artist’s comments! We do assume here that the information on your application is everything you know
about your character. Be sure not to sell yourself or them short trying to keep the bio or other sections brief. It’s okay--we really do want to see the whole thing, no matter how long it is!
We sometimes provide in-week feedback to applicants on their characters to assist them in being approved. However, it should be noted that this is a service we offer only
when the admins running the App Week have the time to do so and therefore it cannot be guaranteed. Please be sure that your character is as ready as you know how to make them be, before you submit your application. We can't promise to help fix bugs during the opening.
Please don’t forget about our ongoing Event
, also! The holiday may have passed now, but we still want to see those Valentines!
If you have any questions regarding applications, characters, or this opening, please feel free to comment here, or note the group or one of our administrators. We’d be happy to help!
Thank you to everyone who takes interest in our group this week, and best of luck!
