~Creation is a Must~ (>^.^)>

Creation is a Must

:iconfoxrawrplz: by foxrawrplz

Our group celebrates the creation of Art at all levels of the artistic scale. We seek to acknowledge YOU - the wonderful people who, through their Art, make this world a better place.


At Creation-Is-A-Must we use 8 main folders (plus one Archive and one Featured album). Two submissions are allowed per month. We encourage you to submit your best work!

We do not accept WIPs, sketches, obscene works, MEMEs and anything that looks incomplete or uploaded with poor quality. Unfortunately we do not have any scientific means to measure these things, so the final decision rests with the Moderators.

Halloween Portraits by DandyAngelicaVannini

Happy Halloween!!!

A brand new challenge for all of you!

Starting from today for the whole month, the Halloween Challenge is open. Let’s celebrate this creepy holiday with some awesome art!
Draw something new for this challenge and submit in the “Halloween Challenge” folder. One submission per artist is allowed so make it count!

Basic and simple rules:
1 submission per artist
Every media is allowed (following the basic rules of the group)
No sexual content
No excess of violence and gore: blood is ok, but do not make us bath in it, ok? Halloween is one thing, Horror is another one so think about it before drawing and submitting

At the end of the contest I will ask admins to select the best pieces that will be featured on our main page until the next theme challenge.

What is the point of being a member of a group that only allows submission twice in 30 days? It is pointless for us. It just implies a lazy admin or a dying group. For goodness sake sort it!

Leaving group for the moment as I don't feel the need to support changes like this. Let me know if the submission limit is restored to the puny 2 per 7 days that it used to be...

Are you really trying to put people off? Big group and all but if we are submitting too many then recruit more admins!

We are sorry to see you go. However, the practice of limiting submissions is very common throughout DeviatArt. Of course you are entitled to your opinion and you make some valid points, but laziness has very little to do with these limitations. Recruiting more administrators is not a sustainable option because sooner or later submissions can become overwhelming - and I'm saying this from experience, having been overwhelmed by submissions even with a dozen active administrators in the background. You can of course choose to criticise how effective the administrators are, but please remember they are all volunteers at the end of the day and have busy lives outside of DA.

My personal motivation for limiting submissions is two-fold:
1) To encourage people to submit their best art.
2) To discourage a situation where every group has exactly the same art submitted at exactly the same time

I do understand what you have done, I just think the decision is the wrong one (I thank you for replying), I run three and a half groups, two of which are reasonable size. The problem with your group is clearly that it has no focus and allows anyone to submit anything of any type, therefore the quantity will be huge and the administration will be enormous.

The best approach is to focus the group on one specific area. At the moment you are one of a few admins at the helm of the Titanic, unable to turn and unable to stop. Turning out the lights won't help.

The issue with 1) is that everything users submit is their best art.
The issue with 2) is that is how DA has been designed, fighting it is utterly pointless.

If you drastically reduce the number of submissions then it implies the group is out of control. It clearly is. No point in being a member in this case. My recommendation stands, if you are going to run such a behemoth of the group, get more admins. Alternative, give it a clear direction a real reason for existing rather than being a dumping ground. Then steer in that direction to the safe port. Some will scream but it MUST be done. When you know the direction let me know.

Others WILL be feeling the same, the majority will not let you know.
