Rumblings Around Town


Hi Everyone!

I first want to start off by apologizing for my flakiness around here as of late. I work full time, have an almost 5 year old in full time kindergarten and a husband who has started working nights. I.E. busy woman.

Sadly I need to announce that we have lost one of our admins to the depths of real life and would like to thank pantherwitch4982 for her time and effort she put in to this lovely group of ours.

On that note, I would like to open up spots for 2 admins in our group. I am still a busy woman and could really use the help with running this supergroup.

I would like to have one person whose responsibilities would be to answer questions of the deviants, accept submissions when needed and create blog posts when required. As well as a person dedicated to running the contests and challenges that you all know and love.

I started off in this group as someone who would accept weekly challenge submissions, post the results and count the votes. Now look at me! This could be you! I had the passion and the desire to do this from the beginning. Although my passion has not died, my priorities are ever changing and as a result, I can no longer find the time to plan and execute such wonderful learning experiences.

So I pass the torch to you, or you, or maybe even you.

To be in the running for this position you must have the following credentials:

:bulletwhite:  Knowledge of Apopohysis (terminology, workability, program knowledge, and script work) (not necessarily expert, but general knowledge is key to answering questions promptly)
:bulletwhite:  A friendly upbeat attitude, a strong but kind individual (be nice but stick up for yourself!)
:bulletwhite:  The ability to answer questions mainly in English and/or a great translator (key to being able to assist everyone that needs help)
:bulletwhite:  The time to put a solid effort from start to finish
:bulletwhite:  Compassion for the newbie artist (we are a learning community)
:bulletwhite:  A general knowledge of the community (people who know people go places and get things done)

If you think you're right for this job then send us your "resume" (a brief description of what you have to offer) by note. I will take submissions for a week or two. I'll give you a heads up when I'm closing submissions though.

Thank you to all that enter, only those considered will be contacted... blah blah interview talk.

I also would like to add some recent info that has come to my attention. A valuable member of our community OutsideFate has recently been permanently banned from dA, for reasons that will be left unmentioned (mainly for their pettiness) so FarDareisMai has put together a journal and plans on spreading the word through blogs and posts, to show the resources and contributions he has made to our fractal community. Please head over to… to see how you can help lift this ban!

Thanks all! Good luck!

I'd love to help out but the credentials are above my skill level. I've only been using Apophysis about a month. I can fill the bill except for the first and last items - I'm still getting a feel for things. :(

C'mon guys, I know there has to be someone out there willing to help out. Let's get #Apophysis going again! :#1:

And thank you Janet for all the work you have done. :)

I fit in with all the credentials but I don't have the time to write blog posts or run competitions.
I'd happily help out as a contributor though.

:worry: oh my, I hope you got some more in the latest month!
I would really love to help more - we contributors are just doing pretty nothing here :worry: - but sadly I lack of the "time" and "great translator" credentials :( otherwise you would have already received my application :nod:

your help is always appreciated around here. It's great when I look on our page and see you've answered a question that may have gone unnoticed... I thank you for that!

I've only had one application. So I am sitting on it for a bit... Hoping maybe to update this blog and poke some people now that summer is upon us! :)
