We wish to apologize for the expired art and membership submissions. We are aware of the problems in the group and we are working on solving these issues. Meanwhile, we ask that you will please resubmit any expired artwork or membership applications.
Long story short, most of us admins aren't active on deviantart anymore, and we need help in administering the group.
One option we have is to put everything on automation, but unless the Founder Carapau gives her blessing, I'm not sure we can just remove the votes needed for new members and art submissions. It wouldn't be very advised either--considering there are bot accounts that spam the groups and we don't want to deal with that.
So, unfortunately I have to ask again if there are any active members or Contributors who would be willing to be promoted to Contributor or Co-Founder to help us keep the group going? If we don't get any volunteers, I'm afraid the group's problems will keep being a thing and getting worse, since only the few remaining active admins will have all the work to themselves and not a single one person can be expected to do that. What I'm saying is that the more ACTIVE and COMMITTED admins we have, the less work for each, and the smoother the user experience on site will be.
We are looking for people who are polite, reliable and dependable, who are willing to log in at least on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to help vote in art submissions and new members. It's a simple press on the vote button, and that's it. Of course, if we receive comments or notes, polite replies are always appreciated, but as of recent times, there haven't been that many of those so there's really no need to worry about it too much. If you could also try fix or at least note the Founder or me on anything else that you find funky regarding the group, that would be super, but that type of things aren't very common occurrences either.
The perks we have to offer is a bit higher global submission limit, a chance to get your voice heard in terms of the future of the group and the direction where to go with it if you're into that kind of thing, and bragging rights for being an authority figure here and something to put in your CV as volunteer work.
So, if you would like to see this group stay afloat, please comment or send the group a note and we shall discuss more! Please don't send any notes to me to my own account, because I might miss them.
Can't wait to hear from you!
