Hi is this group still active? I'm just asking because I have a couple of photos that have been stuck in the submission process for a while now.

Do gryphons/other fantasy birds based on birds of prey count? If so, what are your restrictions towards them?
EdgedFeather Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2018  Hobbyist Photographer
So long as they are heavily based on birds of prey, they are. They should be uploaded to the "Other" folder.

Same here.

I am extremely sorry about your submissions, I am currently the only one working on the group and real life has sort of been in the way.
DominikaAniola Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2017  Hobbyist Photographer
Is the group alive? My submissions were expired two times in the last few weeks.
EdgedFeather Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2017  Hobbyist Photographer
I apologize, I have been very busy and have not been able to check DA very often the past few months. I believe I am the only person actively doing anything in this group.

Please resubmit them and I will get them through

It's OK, I understand. :) Just wanted to know if I should stay in the group or leave.
EdgedFeather Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2017  Hobbyist Photographer
Completely up to you, I would not be upset if you chose to leave. :)
