Story Card a.k.a STORY COVERS! Guidelines - In addition to all of the below guidelines , the following guidelines apply to story cards:
No implication that characters are having, have had, or are about to have sex. This includes (but is not limited to) any actual or implied nudity, a bed scene with more than one person, depiction of one or more characters who are sexually touching themselves or one another, images that depict sex work or a sexual act in exchange for compensation
No sexual props or items being used in a sexual context
No nudity, even with censors
No drug or alcohol use of any kind
No profanity of any kind
No depiction of bullying
No language that relates to racism or racial profiling or stereotypes
Children under the age of 16 cannot be the focus, including any context of overlays and backgrounds (e.g. a closeup of a child on a swing)
Assuming they’re fully clothed, you’re probably going to be fine.
One of my covers recently got rejected. I thought it was the way they were touching each other, but it’s because the girl was pulling one of the guy’s ties and that’s apparently a sexual prop in that context lol
I only just saw this because the thread got bumped lol and yes. He was fully clothed in business attire. The same cover got approved without the tie. (lol 6 months later and you probably don’t need an answer anymore but I hate not replying)
It seems like recently they’ve cracked down on this again because some covers that must have slipped through the cracks the first time have since been reviewed and rejected.
