Hi, dear fellow WatercolorLovers!
There have been a few changes to the staff in this group, and while we're trying to keep it active (Autumn feature is on its way!), we've found that managing daily submissions is a task that could and should be done in a more efficient way, given how many submissions we can get a day, and how many of them are submitted in a subpar state (too dim, not properly cropped, etc.) or to the wrong folder.
Thus, the process of submitting and approving of deviatios so far has resulted in a lot of messages we've had to put out to the respective members, which in turn has led to misunderstandings and frustrations on both sides at times. So we decided to change things a bit.
As of now, you can only submit to the 'Members' Submissions'
folder. The staff will then sort the submissions to the respective folders.
If your submission happens to not meet the group's standards as far as presentation goes, you'll be notified and asked to make improvements.
Also, if you're unhappy with the folder your submission has been sorted to, don't hesitate to let us know, so we can work things out! ♥
This, we figured, saves you guys the trouble of picking the correct folder in the almost dizzying array of available folders, and the staff of having to send a message to every single member who submitted to the wrong folder. (Believe us, it happens a lot.)
Please refer to the group's general submission rules and folder descriptions for further info. They can be found here
*** Also, the submission limit has been increased to one deviation per day
While we still want you guys to submit your best work, we figured that we don't want to punish you for being active and dedicated members. So please go ahead and share your love for watercolors!
So, what do you think of these changes? Do you approve, or would you rather pick the folders for your submissions on your own? Let us know!
Take care, everyone. ♥
*** EDIT: Thanks for your positive feedback, understanding and support, everyone! I really, really appreciate it and am happy to hear you're in as much favour of this method as I am. ♥ ***
