Hi Danielle!:D

I would like to promote this feature: [link] for the next "Pimp and Whoas".
I hope it's okay:)
And also, #Cinemagrapher, a group that has been made for all the cinema lovers that bring their stories into photography, cinemagraphs, film and animation, digital and traditional.

Thank you!:aww:

I'm looking for feedback on Architecture Photography: Need for changes?
Pimpage is much appreciated! :)

Group pimp:

#ManipulateThis is only for photomanipulators who love to create deviations through participating in challenges. Being one of the first groups with challenges, #ManipulateThis is different because we believe that all members should learn as well as have fun creating the deviations. Group membership is open, but each portential member must already know the basics to photomanipulation. We accept novice, beginning, intermediate, and advance photomanipulators. Hope to see you there.

Hey, Danie!

I'm looking for feedback for the #projecteducate week that will focus on Architecture Photography in July 9-15. I posted a forum thread and a poll. It would be nice if people answered them. :thumbsup:

I'd also like a spotlight on #AbstractArchitecture - a fresh group founded by =XcaliburPhotos that gathers the best of abstract photography depicting architectural details.
We launched a Design Our Group Icon contest that is open to absolutely everyone (group member or not) and is a great chance for people to win Premium Memberships!

Thank you! :heart:

I got a few things I'd like to contribute;

#Critiqual-mass - We are passionate about providing critique and detailed feedback. We focus on helping people improve their skills in their medium of choice, and we give advice to those seeking to become effective critique givers.

We have a give-and-get system, so in order to have a submission accepted you must leave critiques on artworks in the gallery and link it to us as proof. So there's always a good chance of comments being left and it's fair for everybody involved.

We are desperately looking for staff to help with the submission management too, and for helpers- people who are proficient in a genre or medium and are willing to help give members advice and mentor them.

#Blood-and-Sinew - We are a macabre and horror anthro, creature and monster club. It's a niche genre that I feel needs to be exposed to the world more more. I know many artists of this genre who feel unseen and unwelcome in the general anthro/creature community. If you're one of them this is the place for you!

And lastly:

5 reasons why comments are really awesome. An article I wrote because I am a huge comment enthusiast. The title speaks for itself, really- I wanted to shine some light on some reasons comments are wonderful things that may not have been realized yet, and I really want to get this community more talkative! Spread the comment love. :heart:

Thanks for reading, and for giving us members the opportunity to share things with community on a larger scale. <3

I was wondering if you would help promote a contest I am holding in my group #Gamers-NESt

It is a group focussing on the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) and it just reached 100 members so I wanted to hold a contest with some special prizes to celebrate and any way it could get some more attention would be highly appreciated.

[link] to the journal.

Thank you in advance. :#1:
hazlenutx2 Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I was hoping you could pimp a journal for me.
It's very near and dear to my heart and it needs all the exposure it can get.

To tell you a little about it..
I am trying to gather funds to get my eldest son up here for a visit (to Kansas from Arizona) next summer.
I want to be certain that I can do this. I have not seen him in 11 years and this is the first contact we have ever had.
He sent me a letter telling me that he hopes to see me soon and I am going to jump through hoops to make it happen.

Here is a link to the journal. [link]

Suggestions for Clock
The rest are watches/pocket watches so if you want to exlude them I understand

DianaGrigore Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2012
I am always waiting for this feature to come up, as I really like the strong, informative content and the way you put it in this journal makes it easy to read and enjoyable. :la:
I have two photos for the theme 'Clocks' : [link] and [link] :aww:

Katy-L-Wood Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012  Professional General Artist
I'd love it if you promoted by new, bi-weekly article "Around the Site Suggestions". Here's the first volume: [link] though there will be a couple more published before the next edition of pimps and whoas.
ValaSedai Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
It would be great if my still rather new group could be included in the next installment, maybe with the following tagline:

"#Pixels-Unlimited aims to collect quality pixel art but welcomes and supports beginners as well. Every two weeks a feature article is published that puts an additional spotlight on exceptional works from the group gallery."
