The group "Mortal Kombat Fans" mortal-kombat-fans.deviantart.… wants to share your Mortal Kombat art to the group's gallery. Unfortunately, you don't check your Correspondence section of your profile, therefore you never see the group invitations that eventually expires. 
So instead, when you see this message, click on the link shown above and please join the group, and then add the following art to the Group Gallery section into the correct character folders.

SubZero Mortal Kombat

Scorpion Mortal Kombat

Raiden Mortal Kombat

Kitana Mortal Kombat
