Well, we opened it like yesterday and people is already saying it's a "Hater group".
I want to clarify this.
The point of the group is not to insult Sonic FC ( FAN characters) or saying they are less original but supporting artist who have OCs (ORIGINAL characters ) wich are mistaken by Sonic FCs because the following reasons (in general): 1.- The artist who is the owner of these OCs used to be in the Sonic Fandom and even if he or she said many times she is out of this Fandom, they keep being mistaken and being added to "Sonic FCs" deviant folders.
2.- Having Furry characters. Sometimes it looks like people see a furry and think it's Sonic. IT ISN'T.
3.- Artist with Cartoon style. Furries with big heads and hands or stuff like that are automatically Sonic? I think NO.
So... don't take the name of the group "Not-a-Sonic-Group" as haters. The point is to say "Hey, the art here is not about Sonic FCs, we are OCs!"
The sentence writen in the group "We are ORIGINALS" is not about to say "We are more original than Sonic Artist or Sonic FCs are less original" but "Hey! Don't mistake these characters. We are ORIGINAL characters, not FAN Characters."
Other common mistakes of people, is that "the new ones" doesn't know the differences between the following terms: "OCs" , "FCs" and "Sonic(or other series) OCs" OCs:
Original Characters. They are characters created by an artist which doesn't belong to any fandom. FCs:
Fan Characters. They are Characters created by an artist which belong to a Fandom/are based on a Serie. Sonic (or any serie) OCs:
Official Characters. They are the characters thag appear in the original serie. Like in Sonic they may be Sonic,Tails, Amy, Knuckles...
Hope this helped to clarify what's going on with the group.
