"This AquaChallenge starts with February 19th 2019 and ends on April 7th 2019, 23:59 Central European Time (CET)."

You have to make something new.

Hello! I wanted to submit my art but it says I can't ;___; "only 1 deviaton per 30 days per-folder" :( I didn't upload anything to that folder but I uploaded something in the group. Does it means I can't participate? Because I submitted something to another folder this month? Pls help, I'm sad now ;___;
TokyoMoonlight's avatar
TokyoMoonlight Traditional Artist
Yes, you probably did submit to the folder...half of the submissions I get from members are submitted to the wrong, AquaChallenge folder.

And you probably did it again. :giggle:
Because the AquaChallenge folder is set to 1 per month, the regular members submission folder is set to 1 submission per day.

If you have an entry for the contest, just submit it to any folder you can, and tell me it's for the AquaChallenge. And I will take care that it gets to the right folder ;)

jointshadowHobbyist Traditional Artist
I don't remember if I did such thing but you might be right. So.. my fault!

I submitted my artwork to the "Member Submissions" folder. It's called Deer sky.
If you could move it to the right folder I am going to be forever grateful for your help!

TokyoMoonlight Traditional Artist
I will my friend, but first you have to do something =D
Didn't we forget something, or not read the rules carefully :plotting:
