But this is the end of the club. I'm making the personal decision to leave dA and accordingly I'm closing the club as well. The club will still exist as an archive of all your work that you've sent in over the years but you will be unable to submit anymore.

I really appreciate your support over the years but it's time to move on. Good luck to all over comic groups out there! And thank you to all the fans out too!

I will, of course, be announcing the winners of our final contest however and they will receive their prizes as soon as possible.

The winner of the Digital category is:star: mdavidct! :star:

And the winner of the Traditional category is :star: Amy-Hands! :star:

You will be receiving your prizes hopefully within the hour!

Thank you again to everyone :)

Bye all!

I really hope someone can be able to take this group over as the founder is de-activated and nothing can no longer be done with the group.
There are many members here who wouldn't mind taking over the group, so I hope it doesn't get closed just because the founder de-activated. :)

Well it looks like the account has already been deactivated. This all seems a bit half-cocked, but oh well!

Why not pass on adminship to someone else?

so... there's no other moderators of this group that can keep it running after you leave?

I would like to add... and I'm probably hoping against hope here... that if it is at all possible I would like to offer to take over the group. I do have some experience with them and I noticed that #Catwoman-Fanclub had been saved by a new founder taking over... so I'm curious as to why that option wasn't left open to this one as well. :( I am hoping there will be more comments from other members of the group who will also express the same desire to see this group go on.

I took over the Catwoman-Club from the original founder when I was just a co-founder. So it seems fitting that I allow someone else to continue the club in theier way just as I got to. But the other clubs, this one included, was run by me alone. Therefore I'd rather not see someone else running something that I've done the hard work for for the past few years and they don;t have to do jack. Selfish but my choice.

I understand. This is a sad, sad day for everyone I suppose but there's nothing any of us could do. I can at least be grateful that I got to be a part of this club while it lasted. It's just... *sigh*... so sad. :(

as i further check there were no mods or admins...and the founder could've just closed the group as that would've been the nice thing. Anyway i sent a ticket in to see if someone can be made the group founder at least to find another founder and keep the group alive. Worse case scenario is they delete the group since the founder de-activated and someone starts a new one.

It seems like a lot of people are feeling the same way and there's a lack of closure in the departure in that it seemed unfinished. From what I can tell, people are upset and confused mostly. Some, like yourself, also feel the decision not to appoint someone else as a founder or admin is a bit selfish. Groups aren't created to boost the ego of the founder but as a way of sharing things. I can understand the reasoning behind why the founder decided not to appoint anyone new and I think that'd make me feel a little awkward about going against their wishes in an attempt to take over. At the same time, I do wish luck to anyone trying to perhaps see about trying something to keep the group alive rather than letting it rot like a dead carcass. It does seem rather funny to me that the whole "I'm leaving and I don't want to see my hard work be usurped by someone else" reason is why another founder wasn't appointed since... well... if you're leaving you won't be around to see what is done and if you TRULY are trying to move on then you shouldn't care. That's my opinion at least. Everyone is allowed to have one. :P

Indeed. I would rather however, it be closed then if that is what he wanted. It's not fair to keep a group up and abandon it but not close it. It'd suck to have it closed, sure but then his 'wishes will be respected'. I am just asking DA to see if they can either close it or appoint someone as founder to find someone to take over to at the very least. Just seems silly to leave a group open in limbo for no one to do anything with. People will come by be confused they can't submit but eventually not even see the group anymore so what's the point right? :)

oh well hopefully something can be done :)

Yeah... if it stays up as an archive there will undoubtedly be some people who would wish to join it or what have you. I mean, there's very little sense in leaving open a group just to essentially become a graveyard. At least in my opinion.

if you want to take over the club, send a note over to the help desk. As the person closed their account, they no longer have ownership of the group and I believe that DA can appoint a co-founder, moderator or possible member as the new owner. Seems very selfish this individual just 'closed it' and not gave anyone the chance to keep running it, and their reasons for doing selfish as well as groups are for everyone not just one person.

We had a damn good run. I really enjoyed running all these clubs and I just hope everyone else enjoyed what I tried to do. But as cliche as it sounds, everything has to come to an end someday.

Nope. Just leaving. If I come back it'll be in secret. I just don't want to be a part of this site anymore and it's time for a fresh start.

This is heart-wrenching news! I'm deeply saddened to see my absolute favourite group on DA be closed down like this... it's always been a group I've been able to find great art in and which has always helped my art get more recognition. I wish there was some way this group could continue on with a new founder or admin. I'm sure there are many who would be more than willing to take that on. I'd just hate to see this group become a dead group. :(

Thank you very much for your concern but this will stay open as an archive. But I will not be passing this onto anyone else. I encourage everyone to join similar active clubs or even start their own. But this one ends now.
