To all of you who had Submissions expire please resubmit them! things got busy with my life and i haven't been online very much and i appologize!

please resubmit your things if they expired , if your submissions go past 2 days please feel free to contact me on my main account

:iconnaruto32: i'm always logged in and i check my message's briefly every chance i get

thank you all for understanding
So our group is nearly at 2,000 members! That is a massive achievement and I would like to thank everyone for joining and contributing their art. I would also like to thank the co-founders for helping to keep this group going and for doing a brilliant job!

As the group grows, I believe it may be wise to make another co-founder to help the group along. If you are interested in this position then please either comment on this post or sent a note to the group's page answering the following questions:

Why do you wish to be admin?
How much time do you spend on DA?
Why should we choose you?
Have you got any experience?

Also perhaps we should prepare for a celebration contest for when we reach 2,000 members OR if people would like a contest now feel free to comment and suggest themes.

HOWEVER please keep in mind that contests require a lot of work. Not only must enough people enter in order to make it worthwhile but we need help with marking entries AND providing prizes for people. So in order to run a contest we need people to help us who are reliable.

Anyway, thanks again guys! Keep up the good work :)

The group is dead
avpke Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Wow... my art got expired twice, now I would need to wait 30 days to resubmit the same freaking thing. No thanks. I am outta here.
Group is dead, I guess.
MonaHyena Featured By Owner Feb 17, 2018  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Ugh, my submission expired and now I have to wait a month to re-submit -.-"
Is this group active or dead?
Dennonyx Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2018   Traditional Artist
we apologize for the issues. My computer has been broken for some weeks. Try resubmit!
Solkeyia Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2018  Student Digital Artist
I cannot submit more than once a month, but your rules say the limit is 3 a week! Is it like this for everyone or is it just me?
ArzinPhoenix Featured By Owner Aug 3, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
hello! can i join this group? ^^
i'd like to submitted my art in this awsome place!!
avpke Featured By Owner Mar 22, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Hmm... I wonder why my artwork was declined. It was made by me. It was an animal, was submitted to Digital Art (where it belonged) and it broke no club rules.

Maybe next time an explanation along the 'decline' would be so awesome.
PortraitsByMe32 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2017
Sorry it was easier to decline everything, digital art 2 was full the new folder is open and ready for submissions
avpke Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2017  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Are you sure it is full? If it is full, it would not let me submit anything in it automatically. It would say that the folder reached its limit and I should submit somewhere else.
It also helps a ton if you lock the full folder instead of letting 2 open ones sit around for extra confusion.
PortraitsByMe32 Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2017
...yes i'm sure its full. We've never needed to lock our folders before
