Thank you :heart:
NB-Photo Featured By Owner Jan 1, 2017  Hobbyist Photographer
Thanks very much for the mention, but just out of curiosity:
How did my photo Import product by NB-Photo end up in this feature. It's not in the group...??
TanyaSimpson Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2017
It's in the Photograph of the Day collection so it's in the group as a Favourite rather than a gallery submission :aww: 
NB-Photo Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2017  Hobbyist Photographer
Thanks for letting me know.
But I'm sorry for insisting:
I don't remember that I ever submitted this deviation to your group.
I'm a member, of course, and I have submitted some shots to you, but unlike with other groups, I never seem to get any updates about their status. It's rather confusing.

I'm an admin of several groups myself, and whenever we request an image from anybody, he or she is being asked for approval prior to posting the image in question.

Obviously, I have nothing against my image being part of your group, all I'm saying it would be nice if you would ask.
I get many requests, and very rarely do I say NO.
TanyaSimpson Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2017
As I explained, it's in the group's Favourites/Collections, rather than the gallery itself. Group Favourites/Collections work the same way as individual ones do - a piece of art can be added to a collection without it being submitted, requested, approved or anything else, just the way you add things to your own Favourites/Collections without the artists who created them being notified in advance or having to approve anything. There's nothing to ask for or about.

When things are added to a group's gallery, the artist will automatically get a notification in their message centre which they can approve (or not). That's the bit you're referring to when you talk about asking for approval for things to be in groups. Gallery submissions. Not Favourites/Collections. They're different things that function differently, just as they do on your own account.

I'm grateful you explained this. It's much clearer now.
It's just very unusual for groups to handle favorites this way!
