Hey, make sure you set your group admin permissions to "Subject to Vote" or "Are Not Allowed". There has been two notorious group hijackers for over a month now who apply as a co-founders, delete all the artwork in the gallery and favorites, and replace it with gore, scat and porn.
As an example:…
(the disgusting stuff has since been removed, but the galleries have been completely wiped out)
BronzeGroover Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2022
I believe this group is no longer active so it's not worth being a member and contributing art. It's simply a gallery of past work which is worth viewing but not being a member of.

Hi, I can't find the join button ;-) Do I submit to this group without joining?
MeMyselfandWho Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2021
Thank You for adding me. I do have a question.  If I draw a picture from the 1860's that doesn't have any info how do you give them credit for the photo or art?
