EDIT: To my knowledge, all folders are able to accept submissions. Please let us know if you have any other issues or questions. Thanks everyone!
It's come to my attention that none of our members can submit their works right now (which actually includes us admins as well). Thank you to the handful of you who reached out and let me know. I went into our settings for the group, and found the issue, but I'm unable to correct it as it stands right now. This is what it shows me, for those wondering:
As you can see, it's greyed out and my mouse is a little X, as I don't have permission to change it. I went into the permissions, and, essentially, tried to give myself permission to give myself permission, but I don't have permission to do that either. I've contacted the group founder, as she's the only one who can fix this. In the mean time, I've noticed some of you have gone into the group gallery and tried to submit to featured- please do not submit anything to featured right now . Not only will it not be accepted (your submission will time out before three people can approve), but it's not helping our situation right now. I know it's really frustrating, but please just bear with us and wait until the system is back to normal and submit to your correct folders. I apologize for the inconvenience, but I can't fix the issue as it stands right now.
Thanks for your patience, and if you have an issues in the future, please don't hesitate to send the group a note (it's preferable over comments, as I will see your note faster). I will update this journal when the issue is fixed.
Thank you everyone!
Noted! Thank you for letting us know. I've also noticed that a lot of the submissions for the featured file are ones that I've already accepted into the group elsewhere. It seems to be causing a lot of confusion.
Sorry, I made the mistake of trying to reply on mobile and I guess my comment didn't post, so sorry for my late reply. That is pretty strange. I believe you said you contacted support at dA, did you happen to hear anything back from them?
Tis alright! I haven't heard anything back from them as of yet.
Ah dang. I think you said that other groups have been dealing with similar problems too though, right?
I have. I've noticed a few groups that I'm either in or see in the forums bringing similar issues up, so I'm pretty sure something is amiss with dA somehow.
