Our little bird group is not so little anymore! In 11 years, we have gained 9227 members and 8462 watchers. We've also had so many submissions that our folders are literally overflowing! (Sorry, I know this happened recently - we have resolved the issue :aww:)

Thank you to all of the wonderful admin and members who keep this club going! I love seeing the wonderful bird art and photography that comes through here every day. I'd like to feature some of my faves from recent submissions. If you have any favorites (including your own art/photos), please post up to 2 thumb codes in the comments and I'll include them in this journal! (Deadline: Sept 20)

Is this group still active? one of my submissions just expired.

Earth-Hart Featured By Owner Feb 20, 2019  Hobbyist Photographer
Out of the 12 admin who 'run' this group, only 2 are in anyway active. Most haven't been active for over a year, and in some cases over 4 years. Someone needs to take control and bring this group back from the Dead.

What needs to be done?
Earth-Hart Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2019  Hobbyist Photographer
I left the group. The founder hasn't been here for over two years, and she holds the reins to move the group forward. So in that stance, the group is dead.
Stumm47 Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2019  Hobbyist General Artist
Ugh. So many groups on her die
Ptitenanette Featured By Owner Mar 1, 2019  Hobbyist Photographer
The problem is that only the founder has permission to add new admins and they haven't been online for years (and DA refuse to transfer us the founder's rights). So only one or two of us try to do our best to accept submissions but we have moved on with our lives and have busy jobs so can't keep up and do it regularly. In my case I spend several months each year studying birds on remote islands without access to Internet so there is no way I can be here regularly (have just been away for two months, hence the backlog).

The only solution I see to this is someone starting a new Birds-Club group from scratch and closing this one down.
vanndra Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2019  Hobbyist General Artist
Can you change the permissions on the folders to automatically accept. Or has the founder locked that up too? You can then just go through when you have time and delete any that you don't think should be in the gallery.
Ptitenanette Featured By Owner Jun 21, 2019  Hobbyist Photographer
I can't unfortunately, I don't have the permission to change the permission system - the founder has all the permissions... I was away for 2 weeks and just gone through a backlog of submissions, sorry for the delay and for those which expired before I could accept them.
