I turned-down one because I wasn't entirely sure if I was within right to allow them to use it as they were planning. (Based on something I didn't create/design in any way, and it was a MineCraft build)
Another I allowed, on a condition that its base also got featured.
I almost always accept because a) I'm honoured they'd feature it usually and b) more exposure!!!! Sometimes though I may decline depending on the nature of the group - if they're mean to heaps of people or really just asking any ol' deviation to be put into the group willy-nilly :c
Groups relating to the work are great for exposure, but if it's one of those "we accept everything!" deals or if there's something about the group, in the group, or someone running the group that I don't like, I just decline it. I also decline if I feel the artwork just doesn't really belong.

I always decline because its usually one of those lame "all art is accepted" groups where there's a million things in their gallery that don't even get seen. If I'm gonna put my art in a group I expect it to be out there and not just wasting away in a crummy folder
i don't know why but i almost always decline - if the said group was really popular (which most requests i've had aren't) i would accept but i just don't seem to feel very comfortable with having my art in a group..... i mean, more exposure/popularity means more chance someone's going to steal your art right??
i always check out the group first though, just to check the popularity.

If I believe the arts good enough and the group isn't one of those "bad art" groups, I'll accept normally, though if a warrior cats group were to try and add one of my YouTuber pictures to the group or a picture that's just a cat and not warriors related (I don't have any cat art not related to warriors but I'm planning on it) then I'm not gonna accept for the reason sure its their group but I prefur it if my art being in the wrong group isn't the cause of someone getting hate ^-^; and highly prefur to avoid as much people thinking my cat arts warriors when its not as possible.
