REMINDER: Have OPEN in title
Hi guys!! This is just a quick and 'friendly' reminder, please add 'OPEN' in the title of your adopt before submitting to this group. If you're new to adopt art or a returnee or sometime-i-draw-adopt artist , please take a few second to read the rules. Ok, bye.
TEMPORARY ACCEPT ONLY 1 SUBMISSION PERDAY
As in title, I'm minimize the submission acceptance for temporary. The downside of this one submission perday is if you submit to wrong folder, once it reject, you can submit only the next day.

Hmm...I think it would make it easier, but do you prefer the sorting? If so, I think most people are used to having multiple categories (like you have them at) already, so it wouldn't be too big of an issue~
And I think you've got all your bases covered (in terms of inclusiveness of adoptable types)!
