Welcome to the Quenta Silmarillion, sit yourself down at a table and hear the stories of old.

The Silmarillion-Club is a group on deviantART centred around the early events from the world created by J. R. R. Tolkien: from the beginning of time up to the ending of the II Age of Sun, described in The Silmarillion, The Unfinished Tales, The Children of Húrin and The History of Middle-Earth. More information: silmarillion-club.deviantart.c…

New deviations submitted by members are in our favourites gallery silmarillion-club.deviantart.c…:
- check out the Newest! folder silmarillion-club.deviantart.c… in there :thumbsup:

Important - changes to submissions method.

I have faved all deviations submitted to the club and put them into storage (just in case, to avoid submitting them again). A few images were missing, I stepped also on abandoned accounts. I'll remove these if owners will not contact the club.
Regarding missing images - you should inform us about deletion. If that's another reason - simply I couldn't locate them in your folders, let us know where they are.
Check your deviations I faved in clubs name and let us know about changes you want to be done.

As you can see there are folders in our favourites folder which serves as club's gallery now. I'll be shifting deviations among folders later, some went to wrong ones. Also I need to rethink what are directions to put images in certain folders, like Sketchbook for example.

We need better names for folders, either. As we've got really nice name for poetry and prose. The names don't have to be in Quenya, but would be nice if they were inspired by the Silmarillion or Arda. Suggestions are welcomed! :thumbsup:

3 Am again! :sprint:

Hello club members and well-wishers :)

I consider changing our submissions method from re-submitting every deviation to the club into collecting these - or faving, to be precise. It has appeared faving member's work is no dA policy violation anymore. More - the idea to use collections instead of submissions in clubs and groups comes from the director of Artist Relations Team Moonbeam13 Please read her journal entry focused on this issue: moonbeam13.deviantart.com/jour… and her tempting offer and challenge moonbeam13.deviantart.com/jour… :thumbsup:

:idea: What way it would work: I'll fav all the images you have submitted to the club and delete everything from club's gallery. Then all images you'll submit in notes will get faved and we'll be updating journal to inform you that our collection has been updated. Not a new entry each time but the same one with notifications sent - I want to keep the number of journal entries low to find all useful information easily.

dA team is working on a brand new groups system, which will let us submit deviations to the club easily (no details are known, yet). For now I have already decided to switch to collections system, but I want to know what you folks think of it first). If many objections appear we'll stay with the present slow system, but I believe there are more advantages with taking Moonbeam13's challenge moonbeam13.deviantart.com/jour… :#1:

Joining and Art Submission Guidelines:

1: Please send a note title "Join" to the club to add you to the listing. Watch the club journal for news and gallery submission notifications (we do not watch back). Adding our icon in your journal is appreciated.

2: If you have deviations you would like to post, send a separate note with links to your deviations (direct links to pages in your deviantART gallery, example: www.deviantart.com/deviation/3…). Send maximum 4 deviations in one note.  Your deviations will be added to our favourites gallery.

Do not send deviation submissions and joining message in the same note, please.

Sounds like an interesting idea.
Silmarillion-Club Featured By Owner Jun 25, 2008
Thank you for sharing opinion!

OK, no complaints so let's begin the operation :D

No ja jestem za tym ;) Brzmi sensownie (Tylko wtedy będziemy mieli chyba pustą galerię teoretycznie, heh)
Silmarillion-Club Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2008
Odpowiem w Westronie ;)

Yes, our gallery will be empty, maybe except banners, dev IDs (we need one) etc. Favorites system will serve as club's gallery now. I'll defav everything what is there now and only works of our members will get in.

BalduranDeArnise Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2008
Ja toże.

Aw, shucks.
Wouldn't it be a better idea to make like... two collections? You know - One for favourites, the other one for club entries.
Silmarillion-Club Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2008
That's another idea. But then mistakes can occur and we make no difference in promotion for our club members vs others. I think having only our members works in favs is more fair if we switch to the new system.

BalduranDeArnise Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2008
Hmm... Might be.
Well, let's just hope that the new group system thing makes our lives easier ;P
