i apologize for not getting the promised update journal up sooner. life has been busy!
however, here's a few little updates i'd been meaning to get out there, and also information on looking for some folk to help me out with managing this group since i'm the only one around it seems.updates.submitting to featured.
this is the biggest issue i've been having since the beginning is people submitting improper things to the featured folder.
the featured folder is for yer best works
, not just anything you feel like submitting to it! we have plenty of other places to submit those kind of things, so if you just want to submit something to the group, please submit to the appropriate folder.
i'm currently the only one going through featured submissions at the moment. i've been doing my best to stay on top of submissions. i want to remind those who get denied that it's nothing personal and to not be discouraged if yer submission is denied! if it is, just go find the right folder for yer piece and submit it to there because it doesn't require approval from me or any contributors to be accepted.
also, try to only submit one
picture at a time to the featured folder. i only pick the best of any one person's submissions and deny the others. that's because i find it unfair to just accept any and all by a specific person, giving everyone a fair chance to have their submission accepted and viewed by members of the group.
you can also try to submit a denied piece again at a later date, especially if one of yer pictures has been accepted in the past. don't be upset if you do try again and it is denied again-- if it's denied twice, that means the featured folder just isn't the place to put the picture, and to submit it to the appropriate one instead! do not submit it again if it's been denied twice.
if you have already submitted a picture to the group, it can't be accepted again into the featured folder. so please pick wisely whether you want to try for featured or in one of the other folders, because i can't accept it if it's already in the group.
if you have any questions at all on this matter feel free to ask away! i apologize in advance if something was confusing or not worded properly. c:contributors.
i'm looking to take on some more people to help spread the load of accepting featured pictures and taking care of the group. we have a lot
of members, and i'm the only active admin around!
tagging the four current contributors to see who's active and wants to stay-- if i get no responses in the next two weeks, they'll be removed.
if any of you guys are interested in staying a contributor or
want to be removed, let me know please~
now, if anyone is interested in being promoted and becoming one, please express yer interest in the comments below.To qualify.
to qualify for becoming a contributor, you must
-- be consistently active on da
-- be on to check the group at least three times a week
-- check the featured submissions whenever yer on
-- be willing to help members and assist me with the upkeep of the group
-- be a fair, unbiased judge for accepting things into the featured
-- have a good grasp on what qualifies
for being accepted into the featured folder
-- be active!!
again, if you have any questions, shoot! if yer interested, look at the above list and think hard about whether or not you fit the bill with all
of those things.
i'll likely edit this with other things and info later, but my mind is scattered and i already forgot one of the things i was gonna mention. oops.
thanks for everyone's continued activity and hello to any and all new members! we hope you guys enjoy yer stay here and submit lots of beautiful pieces. <33
