As of this day, GotGoth has 78 Members :clap:! I'll take this opportunity to introduce GotGoth's Contributors :bow: :

:iconnelchee: :iconstan-w-d: :iconvailedvalor: :iconspidergirl254: :iconorchidsinruin: :iconlunapopelka: :iconmiiss-gore: :iconsterlingeventide:

Since GotGoth's inception, :eager: I have been handling approval of all submissions to the following major sections of the group :faint::
  • members,
  • contributors,
  • gallery, &
  • faves.

As the number of submissions multiplied, I felt the need to share approval tasks :nod: with our contributors :floating:. Please help me out, you guys :pray: !

I sincerely want to hear from everyone as to how we should divide the tasks. Which works best :? ?

  • Should we assign 2 contributors for every major section of the group? (example. 2 for approval of gallery submissions, 2 for approval of fave submissions, 2 for member submissions & so on)
  • Should all contributors "share" approval of submissions to all major sections?

I cannot reply directly on the comment, so I will have to write it here:

by :soveryartsy: This is noice! However, I'll have to decline it as it doesn't have enough dark art elements :( The colors are bright & cheery, for instance :?

This system doesn't allow me to see what work you commented on, and when I access the log I see all the pieces, but can't read the comments :/ Stupid bug, I guess.

If you meant this piece [link]
Then I guess not all pieces which are usually considered gothic (this one is a clear example of cyber goth) are accepted in this group because they're not included in your definition of what is considered gothic style, and what isn't.

I must say I'm actually confused by your standards :/
At least, the group name is deceiving towards the members who are used to the wider interpretation of the terms gothic and goth.

Hi Nel :wave:!
Yes, ([link]) that's the right artwork.

Thanks for the info on Cyber Goth. It's honestly the first time I've heard of it. You have broadened my knowledge - I've learned something new from you :nod:!

GotGoth clearly stated what art it collects/supports: "What is Goth? Goth is identified with &/or defined as medieval, mystery, gloom & grotesque."

The definition above is derived from Princeton's [link] . I really can't take credit for it. I'll have to attach their link on wherever the definition is stated :B.

Starting today, all contributors would have the chance to vote on approval of all artwork submissions. That way, it's not just my opinion that would count. Pieces like this would then have a greater chance of admission this time around! :clap:

Hey, sorry for the late reply, I was at my other account for a few days :)

I'm glad you accepted my opinion. I come from a social circle where many different things are considered gothic.

Thank you for giving us a chance to judge :nod:

Yep! That's why I'm glad I have a contributor like you - updated with the Dark/Gothic scene & its trends :woohoo:
