For those that keep sending join requests without having a single work of art in their gallery do yourself a favor don't. This also goes for folks that submit work randomly, that don't meet the group's criteria or standards. I wanted to make this very clear in case there are any doubts.
Also, respect our decision if your work gets decline for whatever reason. Remember, that are rules in place that I must adhere to. Am not here to read lengthy letters asking as to why you got declined. The groups am founder of are not for beginners. I hope this is also clear.
I will reiterate this once more... my groups are not for everyone. If you don't like my decision, I suggest you look elsewhere to vent out and perhaps find way to redirect your energies in a more positive manner.
The join requests and art submissions will remain as is. Please, if you find rejection to be a little too much for you then I recommend some meditation. It works wonders.
Please, don't feel you've been picked on because that's not the case. My work has been declined many times in the course of 12 years. So, in the end am not going to lose sleep over it.
In this world no one owes me anything. So at this point you can put 2 and 2 together and figure it out. Words to live by. Thank you for your understanding.
