<da:thumb id="687997044"/> Welcome! (Updated 06/06/2018)(June 2018 update notes)
Hey! I know I've been hardly active but it seems this group has been doing pretty well managing itself. I promise I'll be more active! Here's a couple of changes to this group I'm currently in the process of making:
:bulletblue: I'm going to be a little more lax on what I allow in this group; I was honestly being a butthole about what I allowed in here in the past
:bulletblue: I've combined a few folders and will continue to do so. Hopefully this will make this submission process quicker and easier to understand in general.
:bulletblue: Also! If you have any suggestions, questions, or anything you'd like to contribute that might not fit into a category please let me know via comment here in this group or through note!
Thanks guys!
___________________________
If a folder is full, please note me!
Welcome to our group! We have a few rules here.
:bulletred: Please submit to the correct folder! - Your deviation will be removed if it is
Dear members!I was terribly busy with my personal life, so i only saw some issues just now.
I see that some folders are full, but i dont have the ability to create new folders;;
so im not quite sure how to fix this issue.
maybe the new group thing will have to go through after all?
i would have liked to keep the current members and art!!
i'm going over to Pixel-Sanctuary now, and im going to create all of the same folders.
if you'd still like to submit and see more lovely pixel art,
or become more than a member to help out the group while the admins and i are busy/away, then head on over!
i can manage things more easily over there, that seems to be the best solution.
thank you for understanding!

Wishper Friendly BulletinGroup news
Welcome to Wishper Friendly Bulletin, which will replace both the former Weekend Fun and WishingWell Weekly!
TeaPhotography has new ideas for the WishingWell Weekly, and I will let her give you the news when it will be time. Lets only say for now that she is giving me the group news part since I already have the tools to easily feature them here.
Basically, the new journal is a cleaned up version of Weekend Fun with a new name. Since I am very busy and can not always make this journal on weekends, I thought a change of name would be nice. Also, I wanted to be more about the news and less about the randomness that "fun" implied. I hope it will still be fun to read though! And remember, Wishper is our mascot! As for the format, I wanted to be more interesting to read and more compact.
I hope you will like the new format!
