To anyone still watching the DPCA: Hello, and thank you. We’ve been pretty inactive.
And that’s basically what I’m writing this post. I’m not really sure what to do in these cases.
I am just a contributor to the DPCA. I’m not an admin and I don’t have access to everything. I don’t even get to see page submissions. I can’t remember the last time I saw a batch of pages uploaded. (I used to get those requests but not anymore. Long story.) About all I get to see is when a new author requests to be a member or if a group wants to be an affiliate.
My point with that is I don’t have all the power in this group. That belongs to Blue-Uncia who is rarely able to get on, if at all, anymore. A few weeks ago, I put a message up in the admin area to see if any other group members were around and didn’t get a response, so I could very well be the only one who still is checking DA! (Or maybe they’ll see this and this will get their attention.)
So if you have submitted pages and the requests haven’t been approved, I’m sorry about that. I just can’t access them to approve them. We haven’t been purposely avoiding you.
I’m sure this sort of thing happens all the time on DA. A group starts and over time the members or admins stop visiting or contributing. People have lives and things happen. I get that. I guess I just don’t know what we’re supposed to do about it.
I don’t think we should close the group. (Not that I think I’d have the power to do that anyway.) This is still a good place people can come to find a collection of comics. It can still act as an archive of sorts. I also don’t think I want to take on the responsibility of being a head admin if that were even an option. Assuming I have enough power to do anything, what should I do? Should I see if I can close submissions or something? Just see if I can get the page submissions again? Should I just stop worrying about the group all together and let it just stay inactive?
Maybe I’m the only one who worries about this. But I guess I just want to see what people would like to see happen! If you have any feedback to give, let me know!
