Update: A new Founder has been chosen, so watch this space for more details to come.
Looks like the group isn't closing after all.
I know I don't post any 'personal' blogs here, and that the only thing you get from me is the Weekly Theme update, and a note saying you've been featured, so this feels quite impersonal in itself, but I just wanted to thank you all for believing in this group, for being a member, taking part... all of that, really, as I will be closing the group.
I can't say that this group is that original or unique. There are so many photography groups out there, many of which are better than this one. They host contests, events, projects... so many things. Here, we accept deviations, carry out a weekly theme... I've mentioned that this group is for comments and all that, but that has all been a lie as there hasn't been any commenting going on for a long time.
So I decided that, with the Feature .100 coming up soon, we'll finish on that note. It's been a good journey, and I really do appreciate all of your support if you've stuck with us. So yeah. If you have a piece that you want featured, just copy/paste the thumb code here and I'll feature it in Feature .100. We'll call it a day then.
To post a thumb, just go to the deviation that you want featured, go to the right hand side, scroll down a bit until you reach 'Thumb'. Then, copy and paste the code in a reply to this blog. It makes my job a bit easier.
You may be interested in ProjectComment
, which is similar to this group, but is the real deal where comments are concerned. The group isn't photography, though, it's just a general group. There is 'construction' going on there, but it'll be properly launched in September.
Thanks a lot everyone. It has been fun.
