A Question about Groups and Eclipse

Mon Jun 3, 2019, 1:55 AM
I'm interested to get the opinions of people so please leave comments with what you think. NOT just comments bagging Eclipse please - although I probably feel the same way that's not what this is about.

Nothing has really been said yet by DA about how groups will operate under Eclipse.

My group :iconheavens-on-earth: is up for renewal for super group status.

Donations through my points widget have been really slow meaning I will have to pay for most of it if I renew.

I have several groups up for renewal in the next 6 months. It's going to be really expensive for me personally to do them all.

Is it going to be worth it? Should I bother?

It would be great if someone who knows would say something - hint hint - spyed danlev Heidi tagged as the 3 main people I've seen commenting with some actual knowledge - and I've read every official journal I can but have seen almost nothing about groups.

If I can't get an official response - can anyone direct me to anything that has been said officially?

Eclipse and requesting to groups

Journal Entry: Thu Mar 7, 2019, 6:00 PM

I've just been looking a bit more at Eclipse and have found an issue I am really concerned about - I have completed the feedback form to DA but I don't believe it will change.

When I want to request images to my groups I go and browse - sometimes new work - sometimes the most popular - sometimes undiscovered - but I always choose categories depending on which group I'm requesting for - e.g. fractals if I'm requesting for my fractal groups, APN if I'm requesting for my nature groups.

Under Eclipse we can no longer do this!!

We have to browse the whole category of Photography - or Digital and can only narrow it down by using search for tags e.g. fractal

I have to say - browsing on DA is not one of my favourite past times, in particular the digital art category - plenty has been said about the porn on this site for people to understand what I'm talking about. Browsing the category can make me really uncomfortable and sick to the stomach. It's why I prefer to stick to nature and fractal groups and up until now I have been able to manage to request by not having to wade my way through that shit by choosing specific categories.

If DA insists on leaving it the way it is it will be very difficult to request for groups.

I just did a quick search in the fractals category and several people use no tags at all.

Some of you don't care if your art is in groups or not - that's OK.

For people who do like to promote their art in groups - PLEASE remember to use the tags - or submit your art yourself in the future.

I won't be doing a lot of browsing if it doesn't change. I will mainly be going through the stacks of the people I watch - which will be great for them!! :D
