As all of us Deviants seem to understand how it works: artists can now allow certain pictures they've created to only be visible to all who watch the artists. And we of this Group have started to see already-submitted pics become Watchers-Only Deviations (blurriness where none existed before).
While some in our -verse commend artists who do this as a method of getting more people to watch them, we Group Admins find it a bit of a nuisance, especially when you end up with artists who declare every picture they've ever created here as Watchers-Only Deviations.
Not much incentive to watch the artist when there's nothing to see worth “the want to watch”!
And worse still if we get Submissions from artists who like to do Watchers-Only Deviations. If we the Admins (who do not watch any of these artists) cannot see what's being submitted, what's the use of us accepting their submissions?
A lot of artists we do trust regarding the content of their artwork, but there are some artists who like to deceive Group Admins in this regard. We the Group Admins do not want to be so duped—it destroys Group credibility.
So effective immediately, this Group will not be accepting any Watchers-Only Deviations. And any Watchers-Only Deviations already part of your Group will either stay or eventually be removed.
We apologise in advance any inconvenience this may cause, but we hope you will understand.
“Until next time, [ -land]!”
