Really shitty stuff.

Explain how I constantly see really bad art on Hentai foundry, but my friend's good art gets denied? It doesn't make any sense. I feel like they're biased towards something, but I can't quite pinpoint it.

They do seem to have a lot of bias.  Some of

's human sketches were accepted (an admittedly messy one) while other cleaner and even colored ones were rejected.  Some of those clean sketches could almost pass as line work...

Exactly, I've seen both bad and good from the same artists on there, but it doesn't make much sense. They really need to re-evaluate how they approve art if they're going to have that kind of system.

Grandfathering sometimes, if a contributor has been around a while from when standards were more lax. It could be that somebody has bad or messy technique, but their anatomy or composition are solid. Weighting of different elements is pretty common in merit-based galleries. Also common are moderators with differing standards; perhaps your friend uploaded while one moderator was working, while the lesser pieces were approved by a different one.

Of course, I'm just pulling guesses out of my ass since I have no clue how hentaifoundry works.

Probably pretty good guesses, and very informational. Thanks a bunch. Yeah, I dunno, I mean, I've seen some bad art on there, recently, and my friend drew a picture for me that he can't rightly load here or FA because it's against a rule here and a different rule there, so we thought he could do it on HF. But they rejected it based on anatomy. Which makes no sense, because the character looks like she should. So they're applying a set standard to a variable media in which there is no "Set standard for anatomy." It's really ass backwards. I'm glad IB doesn't do stupid things like that.

Additionally, if they have that type of system there should just be set rules and mod biased or opinion should be left out of it. But that would just make it more strict and silly..

Yeah, well, the problem with that is that content rules are pretty much be definition subjective, especially if they're based on quality of work. What's really bad is when it's a moderating staff that itself is poorly moderated, due to size or disinterest from the owner.

Even our own content rules occasionally result in discussions amid moderators whether an image is permissible or not.

True, but it also gets uploaded without having to be approved, and never gets denied based on how good it looks. Rather, if the content of the picture violates the rules or not. It makes you look bad if you go "We don't want art that doesn't look like what we want on here."

True. If Inkbunny was only made up of the content the staff personally liked, you can bet it'd be a lot smaller... and a lot more pony-heavy. :3

Hehe. XD That's for sure! And it would be sad, very sad. Because then new artists who might eventually get good would be less likely to use the site.

My old account i drew guro and gore when i was bored and i ended up pissing off an admin because i called him out on his bullshit by posting it on the forum and asking specificly "what was wrong with this image and why was it rejected?" none of the mods said they would of rejected it since it had a solid standing and nothing looked out of place, it was activated and the admin who did it got people bitching about him till he got in trouble since he had apparently been rejecting everyone shit for stupid things and letting his friends post reaaaaaallly bad work that doesn't even contend with how powerpuff girls looked on tv.

in the end i ended up getting the account having everything perma rejected as soon as i sent work in (pretty sure by the same admin) , made a new account after and stuff seems to be getting through again just fine, the only time i ever get rejected anymore is if it's too large res.

That's how things work sadly, regardless of the composition if its against someone's ideal 'thing' who has the power to say no, they often will for little more than their own ideology or taste.
