1.2 OwnershipSubmissions made within the WiP section must be created or co-created by the submitter. Submitting content in which you took no part in is not permitted.
1.3 AuthorsListing authors is optional with WiPs. However if you add a download to your WiP, it becomes compulsory to list all the authors who worked on the content.

1.5 ScreenshotsYou're allowed to submit up to 32 screenshots along with your submission. You must upload at least one screenshot or render and it MUST show your work. Generic screenshots are not allowed.
1.6 Work DoneFor a WiP submission to be allowed, a not insignificant amount of work must have already been completed by the submitter or co-authors and that work must be displayed via the screenshots and description.
Simply listing what you plan to do or using images of other peoples work and doing no reasonable level of work yourself is not allowed.

Any preview video that modifies the page width shouldn't be embedded in the description directly, you should provide a link to it or resize the video player. Your screenshots and video player width should not exceed 285 pixels.
1.9 LanguageAs of 2011, Studios may post in their native language to improve the studios ability to communicate/cooperate to create content for release. This extends ONLY to the Studio Profile, Help Wanted, WiP and Projects pages.
2.0 Release TimespanSubmission of a WiP and Download Release within 24 hours of each other is not allowed. This will result in your WiP being deleted and points deducted as this falls under 'Point Farming'. Exceptions will be made at the moderators discretion where the WiP and the released content bear visible changes from one another (Ex: 50% Skinned weapon to Fully Skinned).
2.1 Non-ComplianceNon-compliance with any of the above clauses, unless otherwise noted, will result in your submission being withheld or deleted at the administrator's discretion.
