I know we are LONG due for an update! I hope everyone's been doing well. I've been incredibly busy (still have not written my Christmas thank yous!!!), but I have fortunately been getting some great help from chibi-lenne! So big thanks there! If anyone else would like to help admin or otherwise contribute to the group, please shoot me a note! More help is always welcome!!!
Anyway, I've got question that occurred to me while moving deviations from the Halloween folder back into regular folders.
Is Binary Gender Sorting a Problem in this Group?
I'm learning to be sensitive to queer and gender issues, but even aside from such concerns, there's a practical element: some costumes and clothes are just gender neutral anyway! And it occurred to me that we only have male and female folders for both female and male costumes. Our group rules state that group shots or gender-neutral clothing should be sorted into the "male" folder, simply because "male" tends to serve as the gender-neutral. So, is this a problem? If so, I've got a couple of suggestions for how to fix it.
I can't really create a poll, but if you all could weigh in with one of these answers, that'd be greatly appreciated!
No, it's not a problem. Let the sorting remain as it is.
It is a problem, change the folder names to say "Male and Gender Neutral" on the "Male" folders.
It is a problem, make a gender neutral folder for both costumes and clothing.
My only concern with creating more folders is that self-sorting would become more complicated. So, should I just change the folder names? Thanks for any weighing in!
Each member may only have ONE featured deviation.
Each member may only submit ONE deviation per piece to the group EVER (though you may removed submissions and re-add if you have an updated deviation or better picture)
If at any time you would to change your FEATURED deviation, please let the admins know!
You are allowed to add WIPs, but I STRONGLY suggest you wait until you have a deviation of the completed piece!
Hope you all are doing well! Let me know if you have any other suggestions, concerns, or know of any neat sewing contests!
