Audition- Pg 2 by MsRockTheClock
Hey folks.  I have begun to cleanup and rearrange the group folders, and make some other changes.  Please bear with me while everything gets worked out.
In the mean time there's always room for more artists contributing so be on the lookout for fresh talent.  I'm also looking for a few curators to help with things, so if you have some skill with that, let me know.



For a couple years now, the gallery root folder (also known as "Featured"), has been somewhat of a dumping ground for anything and everything.  I am partially responsible for this having not set up a decent folder structure, and, more importantly, neglecting to add artist folders as new artists come on board as contributers which does make selecting the proper folder difficult.  On the other hand, though, some of you have also neglected to submit to artist galleries when they do exist.  A couple of you also have a tendency to submit pretty much everything you make.

With these problems in mind I have begun to rearrange the galleries.  First off, I have added sections for various levels of amputation as well as ones for other disabilities and for literature; if anyone has any suggestions for other categories let me know.  I will also do what I can to actually add new folders for various artists. Any artists who do not have a folder and need one (20 or more artworks since I'd like to be able to fill up at least one gallery page) please message me and I'll add a folder for you.

Additionally, I would like to remind everyone not to submit everything you've ever made (your personal gallery is for that), but only prominent works, your favorites, fans' favorites, or whatever your most proud of, etc.  I've also limited submissions to 3 per week which should be plenty for most of you but should stop anyone from submitting a dozen works at once; in the future if anyone thinks the limit is too low, let me know, and I will consider a change, but give it a couple weeks first.  There is also a slight change to submissions.  As I intend to use the Featured section to actually feature the best stuff, submissions to that folder will require a vote, so only submit your best stuff.  The rest of the folders will remain the same: contributers submitting to any other folder will automatically be approved while regular members require a single vote to be approved (I may adjust these numbers in the future, but am unsure at the moment and welcome feedback).

Finally, I could use some help rearranging things, and more importantly, some people to routinely pick the best works from the galleries to feature.  Anyone, artist or not, who thinks they can help curate the galleries, please message me.

I'm hoping to get this done reasonably quickly and want hear back from you folks on the changes.

Hello again folks.
Thanks to Zipper9319, our Featured folder has been cleaned out and can now actually be used to feature the best stuff from everybody instead of being the generic unsorted folder.  I would like to again remind everyone to submit to the sorted folders to avoid this problem in the future and because it's harder to actually get a work in the featured folder due to the vote requirements (works submitted to the other folders are automatically approved for contributers and need a single vote if submitted by a member).

With the Featured gallery now clean, we can get to work actually featuring some good works.  Zipper and myself will be selecting works we think are top quality, but feel free to message any suggestions for works you think are very good.  I would also like to let you guys know there is still room for a couple more curators to help find the best works and make sure everything is sorted.  As always, though, please submit your works to the subfolders where they will be easily approved (auto-approval for contributers, 1 vote for members) rather than featured.  If it's your best work it should find its way to the featured folder on its own, and you can always poke on of us if you think it should be featured.

As always pardon our dust as we still aren't totally finished with the cleanup.  Thus far work has been done to categorize works, so many of them have not made their way to the artist galleries yet.  Again, anyone with a few dozen works in the group without a folder, please message one of us in case we miss you when adding folders.

As an aside, I've opened the group journal to contributors, so feel free to share what's on your mind with group blogs.

Thank you for your time.

Since I don't always have time to maintain this group as much as I would like.  I would like to welcome ~xyzzy2112 who has volunteered to help out and has been brought on as a co-founder.

After some discussion we will be changing to organizing art thematically rather than by artist (though it hasn't been decided quite yet if that should be by art style or amputation level, so feel free to provide your thoughts and suggestions for sorting).  I would like to remind contributors that you should be able to submit straight to folders, and once we get everything sorted, to please do so.  I would also like to remind you to submit only the artwork you are most proud of/like the best.  The group should be featuring your best works, not mirroring your entire gallery.  Some cleanup may take place over the next few weeks to clear things out in the case of people who have submitted excessively.

For those of you who aren't artists (and even those of you who are), if you come across some good artwork on dA, suggest it for our favorites gallery; it's looking a bit anemic at the moment.
It's probably obvious by now I've done a terribad job at managing this group.  Part of that is not knowing all that much about managing dA groups, but it mostly boils down to time.

With that in mind, I was hoping to find a group admin who can help sort submissions and manage the gallery and favorites.  Knowing how to work all the different options of the groups is a plus, and it would also be great if you had any better ideas for sorting stuff and drumming up activity if necessary).  Let me know if you think you would be interested in helping.

Sorry, spaced out a bit lately, and didn't realize I needed to add more galleries. Unless I screwed up the settings, though, contributors should also be able to add folders.

OK. I guess the question then, is what it takes to move from "member" status to "contributor"?

I think that it could be awesome to do contests. That could make the group even more dynamic, I think.

Cherry Darling from Planet Terror could be good. But, I don't know if this group wants contests or some like that.

But it could be nice.

maybe not as a contest, but as collection of variations on a subject.

I like the character of Cherry Darling to start
what the rest of the group think?

Hello, I submitted some stuff, and it all went into "Featured". I wonder if I need a folder for my own pieces, or if the arrangement now is okay?

Folders are helpful for organization, so I like to give everyone their own folder. I must have forgotten to give you one.
I'll fix that.
Anyways, there's no problem putting stuff in featured if you think it's good, though I think it would be best to put your good stuff in your own folder and your best in featured to cut down on clutter.

Can you create a Featured folder for me please - I don't seem to be able to do it myself

Made the folder for you. You should be able to move pictures to the folder by mousing over them in the gallery screen and clicking the pencil icon.

Bear in mind, you can add stuff to featured as well if you want, just copy it over from your personal folder or vice-versa.

I really don't know if such a new group was needed. As I enjoy seeing Peggy hopping everywhere, I've submitted a few pics and I'll submit more. But certainly no new drawings, I fear..

It doesn't have to be new ones. I had hoped all the artists like yourself would showcase the stuff you think is your best stuff and everyone could show what their favorites are.
