Just wanted to let you all know that the folder "Unsorted Art" will be deleted. Our reasoning is that it is has become an extension of folder laziness, as we noticed almost all of the submissions to that folder can very easily be categorized into a specific folder. Also the folder Prompts has been deleted due to inactivity.
Speaking of folder laziness though, I have seen a small improvement to fan-art submissions, so we commend you all on your efforts there. It seems like all of dA has kind of accepted that fanart = anime and MLP only, but we would like to stress the point that fanart is for ALL things, from celebrities to musicians, and even sports stars. It all goes into fan art.
The submissions to artisan crafts and jewelry however, is still a prevalent issue. The admins here will no longer be making efforts to comment on the submissions submitted to that folder, instead they will simply be declined with no notice. Since that folder is the first option automatically, it is obvious that more often that not, it is a laziness issue and not a bug in dA's group system. That being said, we won't be accepting excuses or requesting declined submissions sent to that folder on "accident", so that means submit it to the right folder, or you're waiting a month. If that is too difficult to handle, the "leave the group" button is located in the top left corner of the screen in the drop down menu. Also a quick reminder: Being an entitled brat and being rude to the admins to try and make us request your work into the group is the number one way to ensure that your work will never be accepted.
Now that that is all over, we would like to say thank you to the members who consistently give a good effort and welcome to all the new members we have flowing in every day!
That is all!
