About #CoreMembers

:bulletblue: CoreMembers functions as a place to gather all of DA’s Core (formerly Premium) Members in order to inform them about Core Member news, invite them to participate in weekly contests and giveaways, and discuss their thoughts about Core Membership through polls and blogs.

:bulletblue: CoreMembers is all inclusive. This means everyone who is a member of DeviantArt can join, regardless of subscription. However, when it comes to contests, special discounts, and giveaways, only those with active Core Memberships at the time of the event, from when it is announced to when winners are made public, are eligible to win prizes.

:bulletblue: Submissions to the Gallery are accepted only if our current contest calls for it. Check out our blog for the most updated information!

:bulletblue: If your Core Membership is about to expire, or if it was gifted to you, no problem! Feel free to join to stay up with the latest Core Member news. You will not be kicked out just because you are no longer subscribed.

:bulletblue: Joining couldn’t be simpler. You can join at any time by clicking on the "Join Our Group" button found on the navigation bar of the main page of CoreMembers. It has an icon of three people with their arms in the air! Hooray!

Thursday Is For Winners!

Did we have to submit our entry to the folder for the most recent contest (ended Sep. 17)? 
akiestar Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2019  Hobbyist Photographer
Yes, tctems, but if you commented in the journal without submitting it to the folder, then it still counts so long as you did it before I closed the contest. :)

ah okay thank you so much!

soo you refuse all my arts and now i cant  submittt
akiestar Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2019  Hobbyist Photographer
As I told you before, Nathan123qwe, if you're not submitting art to the Thursday Prompt for a particular week, I will reject your submissions. I lock folders after a contest ends, and those folders are closed to everyone, not just you.

There are currently no folders in the group which is open for general submissions, but it is something that I'm looking into and may consider doing in the future.

Wait do I have to submit my art in that folder for the weeks prompt to participate? I didn’t see that part in the journal..

"Once you’ve uploaded your deviation to DeviantArt, upload it to the 'Feel Good' folder in CoreMembers, then post it as a comment to this journal." ;)

Lol I may have submitted my entry twice because I got scared that it didn't go through the first time in the Thursday Prompt: Let's Play folder 😅
akiestar Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2019  Hobbyist Photographer
That's fine, RippleInThePond! I will see it on my end and can address it accordingly. ;)

I have been away for a while. And I believe that I am a member of the group. Since I have been a core member of deviant for over a year now. Nevertheless, I am back. And were considering this recent contest. Because I have recently begun to play video games. Which it's been a while since I have been interested in entering a contest.

Ignore everything but my submission to the let’s play contest
