Hello, original founder here.
Sorry the group never really gained traction, I had started uni at the time and left it for ginger-fart to look after, I'm not sure how active she is anymore and RaerBear doesn't seem active either, which leaves SirGunky and myself as the only ones with any real power.
I don't think much can be done unless there's an active founder, I have contacted the help desk to inquire about restoring my founder position if at all possible, and have also contacted ginger-fart, but I do not expect to receive a response. As a solution to this I have created a new group and encourage everyone to migrate there, all current active contributors (active within the last month) will receive invites for admin co-founder positions, this includes:
Each co-founder will have the ability to invite others to co-founder position too.
The new group is: PEOPLE-ART-ACADEMY
I will send out invites for the new group and affiliate it with this one. If you're interested in becoming a contributor for the new group, feel free to comment your interest on this journal post or send a message directly to my new account girafii, your application will be decided by the co-founders once they have been recruited. Please only apply for contributor positions if you are going to be active, you will be removed after 2 months of inactivity unless you give notice to the admins.
I had originally founded this group with the intent of it being a learning resource for its members. I'm not sure if this was ever achieved, I feel that the majority of people use it as they would with any group - to give their work exposure, not that there is anything wrong with that. With the new group I will be sure to post learning resources to help members improve their skills in drawing people and encourage everyone to be community driven and provide feedback to other members.
