Hi! I was wondering. Why was my "Blood Bath" pony declined? Is it because, she looks too "Gothic" like or just not Pony friendly? If so I understand. Are there any MLP groups that I can join with the similar genre for my Pony? Thanks. :)

Hi! (When asking about why were submission was declined, please talk about it under the submission page that way it's private. ^-^)
We don't accept mature-content. Specifically in your case- violence/gore/grim. 
I'm not so sure with other MLP groups, most of them that I'm in have similar rules that we have. BUUUUTTT you can always scroll through random pony groups, and read their guidelines/rules and see whether or not they accept violence or not.
I wish you luck!

Oh okay! I didn't realize she was part of those categories. I will be more careful on where I upload her on dA for now on, thank you for letting me know. And next time I will do as you asked as for putting comments in the "declined" section. :)
Again thank you for letting me know. I will look for more groups with the genre for her. :D

I'm just wondering...why don't you accept fanfiction or literature submissions anymore?

There were two reasons why we stopped accepting them:

1) As FrostedOpal said, they take a very long time to review to ensure that they meet our quality requirements and don't break any rules. Each submission to our group requires the approval of two moderators, and often it was difficult to get two votes on a fic in a timely manner.

2) We did a small survey previously, and found that a lot of our members do not read the fanfiction submitted to our group. Most people these days prefer reading MLP fanfics on FIMFiction. Plus since DA doesn't really have tagging or "preview descriptions" to let you know who's in a fic/what it's about, it's much harder for them to determine if a fic in our gallery is something they'd be interested in or not.

So basically, it took a lot of work to approve fics that our members/watchers generally weren't interested in to begin with. And honestly, I don't think it's specific to our group either - I've seen several writers say that they only get a few dozen story views on DA, but hundreds and even thousands of views on the same fics on FIMFiction.

Personally, while there are still plenty of MLP groups on DA that accept fanfics, I really would recommend that you try submitting your stories to FIMFiction in addition to DA, as you're much more likely to have success in finding an audience on that site than on this one.

It takes too long to read the stories and we might find a bunch of grammar errors and decline it and get asked why.

Oh...well stories weren't meant to be rushed. Stories should take a while to read, because the longer they are, the more plot and character development they usually have. ^^; But I take it you were getting too many submissions with grammar errors?
