why is there some really craptaculer artwork in the dcg and i submit some thing that i thought was good but it is rejected riddle me that
For one, the DCG hasn't always been under the same art guidelines as it is now, so lesser-quality work got in a long time ago.
However, more recently, thats not the case. I guess it's just a matter of your perception of "craptacular".

Well, as the submitter of some craptacular work, here's a few things that might be an automatic out that you may have overlooked:
Did it feature the work of another artist, especially a professional? (Pasting someone else's face on an Alex Ross, for instance.)
Did it show too much of someone's body? (Badly erased nipples used to make a woman's body look like spandex.)
Did it consist of unedited base pictures, without any effects? (My original, un-posted Angel And The Ape.)
Or would it be near impossible to guess at what it is without a title? (Unfocused collages, for instance.)
And in case you didn't guess, all of these are things I've done, and had rejected.

Perhaps it was rejected due to your inability to use punctuation...
Seriously though, the reason for it not being posted would have been given in the email telling you it wasn't going to be posted. You're not going to get any answer more clear than that, so insulting other artwork certainly isn't going to help.
