Hello all, This is very important. I urge you to read it in its extent.
TL;DR: please be patient with submission delays. We're doing our best. If you really wanted to fix this issue and be a helpful member of our community, you could look into becoming a part of our admin team. Thank you.
We're currently having issues with our super group status not updating correctly (which is why the front page and this journal are still "Broken" looking), and are trying to resolve that issue. Thank you for all your patience.
For those of you who have been with us for a long time, you'll be very aware of our multiple issues with admins. As of right now, we have 4 admins, 2 of which who are mostly inactive. The 2 who are active also have very busy personal lives.
That means 2 people are running one of the largest horror groups on deviantart. Obviously this is very hard, and puts a good deal of stress on us. This is also why the monthly art features and contests have not been running as usual as we simply do not have the manpower to do so.
If you are frustrated that your art has been in "submission hell" for a few days and are wondering why we didn't accept it immediately, please remember that there are only two people going through the mountain of submissions that constantly come in. Most of those submissions are also submitted incorrectly because people don't read our submission guidelines or simply choose not to follow them because they think we'll accept them anyways.
People who resubmit the same piece of artwork twice into the same folder also contribute to the problem.
This delays the submission process considerably and makes it very frustrating to go through it, for both the member and the admin.
So, if you want to help restore this group to its former glory, (and believe me, it was. I've been with this group for over 4 years.) then please take some time out of your day and consider helping us, whether through donations to keep the super group status intact (we can only do it with your help), or consider applying to become an admin. If you are seriously interested, please read the admin application journals from March 20th.
We truly appreciate all the love and support that members give us, especially when there are so many who don't understand and choose to take their anger out on us. It can be very draining.
Thank you, and stay spooky. If you read this far, please comment down below and give us your thought on these issues. We love hearing from our community.
