Hello to all the Scifi fans out there and those that appreciate the genre. For those that don't know one of my favorite Scifi/Horror movies of all times has been (THE THING 1982). I must've seen over 30 times. The first time I watch it I was 12 years old. Scared the crap out of me and in some ways it still does today. Perhaps, it simply boils down to our natural fear of not knowing.
Before I ask the question I would like to point out a few minor things to avoid misunderstanding. As some of you already know there's a crap load of information on the net regarding this movie and for good reason. Please, take note that this is a Cult Classic with a huge following. Now, that being said I care little about that. While I do understand that in the end everyone eventually reaches their conclusion as to what am about to ask, please bare in mind that its purely subjective.
My suggestion to you is watch the film if you never seen it. Understanding the question will help you greatly with the outcome. Make your deductions and reasoning on your own. DO NOT go on the web to research because most have drawn their own conclusions already. I will know if you did! xD I know every forum on this film. In fact, I know everything the director has said about his own film.
In the end when the winner is picked I will elaborate on the answer. Also, I will give you a logical explanation as to why I reached that conclusion if you wish to hear it.
Anyways, this is for 1 Year Of Core Membership. I will make this giveaway as fair as it could possibly be. As a favor I ask everyone to stay on topic and respect others. Please, don't guess because I will ask you personally how you reached that outcome. xD Remember, this is not about a right or wrong answer but years of paying attention. So, the person that gives me the answer am looking for kindly send me a note explaining your decision.
Now, without further ado... the moment you been waiting for. Pay close attention as to what am about to ask. Who was the team member that began taking over/copying/infecting everyone else? So what am asking is who did the dog/Thing copy first? No, is not Bennings. Bennings was taken over by the specimen on the table. I can't say anymore. xD
Have fun everyone.
Yours truly,
Fernando (aka) submicron

NO member is allowed to use anyone else's art in their own submissions unless permission is granted by the artist, or the art being used in question is free domain.

I'd have to agree with the last comment made on this thread. DA could do better by de-activating the groups that have been either abandoned by the Founder(s) or have been inactive for at least six months.
 It would definitely draw attention to this problem of people petitioning admittance to groups they feel drawn to, only to find out the group is only a ghost of what it may have once been. :( (Sad) .

We are officially open. xD
submicron Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2020  Professional Interface Designer
I totally I agree with this. I wouldn't mind taking over. I've already have 2 other groups under my belt.
Rocket787 Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2020  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ALL of the artwork that is in these "Abandoned or Forgotten Groups" would still be kept of course. Maybe a DA page could be created just for this purpose. It would be place to showcase the artist and their artwork that may have otherwise never been seen before and for all to enjoy.
There could be some real treasures hidden in those "Abandoned or Forgotten" places.👍😎

Oh, I don't doubt that. That is my primary reason in bringing any of these groups back from the dead. Right now, am trying to get a whole of a group am currently a co-founder of. The owner left and pretty much left my to my own devices. I have very little control over the group's day to day handlings. Also, my privileges are limited. I hope DA helps me out on this. The user's last known communication was back in 2014. She just vanished. Am crossing my fingers.

To everyone requesting to join:

The latest activity on this page was in 2012, and the founder's page doesn't seem to have been active since 2013. I think it's safe to say this group is no longer active.

If this is incorrect, pls speak up.
submicron Featured By Owner Oct 23, 2020  Professional Interface Designer
The group is operational once again. Pass the word around. xD
JohnPrisk Featured By Owner Jul 3, 2015   Traditional Artist
Is the group active? my request to join expired because it did not receive enough votes to be approved.
Whats the story?
Micheal-C Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2014
How long does it usually take to be approved or declined?
I submitted for membership about a week ago.
