EDIT: Membership will remain closed. Gallery remains closed. A revamp does not happen overnight and it's definitely not the cue for you guys to submit stuff to the group. I don't need additional work right now. Please be patient, I've got a lot of things to do.

Once the revamp is done I will let you all know.

Thank you.

Blog title says it all, so I'm just going to explain.

I am pretty sure that most people would notice this group has remained silent for over a year. What basically screwed the mod team over was the amount of submissions we'd received.

Because of the huge number of members we have (20,000+ at the time of writing this), we got 1,000 submissions near every week - no matter the schedule changes - and we couldn't deal with that since some of the mods were inactive.

Taking more mods on hand did not work because of the number of submissions per week and not everyone being available on that week itself.

So we're clearing up house in the backroom, but personally I cannot promise an ETA on when I'll finish dealing with all of that and start broadcasting for mods.

When will that be, I don't know, but telling me to take on mods now when I'm still sorting out how this group will be run will not earn you any favours from me. All I know is that the current rules (original characters only, character-based group) stay. Submission schedule is due to change.

If you want to leave the group, you are welcome to. If you want to stay in this group, you are welcome to. Either way, I hope you have a good day.

:bulletred: Join requests are auto-accepted.


:bulletred: ORIGINAL CHARACTERS ONLY. We do not accept fancharacters and/or fanart, be it Bleach, Naruto, Sonic, nothing that is based on a pre-existing series/official fandom.

:bulletred: We do not accept random characters! Characters must be "established", with a bit of background info talked about the character. We are a character group, not an illustration group!

:bulletred: Make sure your works follow dA's rules.

:bulletred: We don't accept artwork that is posted in your gallery, but not drawn/coloured by you. This includes commissioned artwork, requested art and gift art. We want them from the original artist.

:bulletred: If we see your work in fangroups, even if it's an original character, we will REJECT. Because many people will see that, and immediately think we are accepting fancharacters, thus delaying us unnecessarily.
The only exception is for UTAU characters.

:bulletred: Please do not advertise anything that isn't your original character on the front page, especially points for favs/pageviews/watches. Such comments will be hidden.

Hey, if you need anyone to help you accept/decline submissions when the group is done with hiatus, I would love to help! ;A; I would love to help bring your group to it's former glory and if you don't know how to recruit more admins, I can tell you how to!

I certainly love how this group feels exclusive, but the galleries have been closed for longer than a month.  I check in every couple of weeks.  I'm wondering if perhaps you need some help?  It seems you have a good group of staff.  But, I'm left wondering what everyone is doing.  I've been a member for over 3 years.  I don't want to go :(
