I don't visit DeviantArt as much as I used to, but I've fixed some group issues, Emoticon submissions now automatically get accepted like every other category. Having looked through the group details and allowed actions, for some reason Emoticons was set under a "Admin vote system check" so I've removed that since I got tired of manually allowing Emoticon submissions into the group.
I've removed "Pixel Bit Special" since I have no plans for any group activities any more and would rather just make this group a hub to store all Pixel media and for other artists to get exposure and to meet other fans of the same media.
I'm also removing all featured art per category, it's just too much work and I personally don't believe in or care for featured work when this group is just for storing and collecting Pixel work for exposure of each artist.
Finally all affiliates will automatically be accepted too and no longer will go under an admin vote check.
Thanks for being a great community and please continue to share your work here, I can't believe how big this group has gotten in such a short amount of time.
