GALLERY STATUS: AWAITING MOD ACCEPTANCE.
UPDATE: 13 APRIL 2015
See status above.
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.
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.
