Oh hai dere guis, PLEASE DON'T EAT ME FOR THE INACTIVITY! I TASTE BAD!

Anyway, now for some proper English (like that's going to happen.)

So, all the old members know me; I'm La Volpe or Carli, now that all you new members know I'll continue; during the end of last year a LOT has happened everyone's getting busy, everybody's losing touch with deviantart, we were ACTUALLY going to spice things up by making a website and making it similar to dA but concentrating on literacy instead of everything else. But since that fell through we kinda, sorta, definitely ran out of puff. I mean doing this for nearly 8 years kinda knocks it out of you from time to time. I'm personally here to say I'm slowly going to be starting this place up again BUT that means I need new minions... I love all my old guys but they are striving towards a better tomorrow in their lives and since I am currently free to do as I will as of late, well you know. So,

Step 1:

Need new admins. Send MY ACCOUNT La--Volpe a NOTE if you're interested.


Step 2:

Clean out all of the inactive members/INCORRECT SUBMISSIONS. Seriously, I leave for 1 little year and you idiots go and put shit in the wrong places. ;P


Step 3:

Get funds, because I am broke~! YAY~!

And then see how is goes from there.

So... what, are you guys refusing to accept my work now? You guys never do anymore... :/ I've had to withdraw like 3 things because it sat there for so long, I just figured they wouldn't be accepted. I have a few things waiting now, hoping maybe someone will come in and accept them. o_o

So... This group is pretty inactive, and if you don't have the patience to wait for 2 people to tick the yes box even though you submitted something only yesterday, then you shouldn't type accusing messages (not to mention these types of messages don't actually help us accept your submission faster).
You also shouldn't over submit, the rules say you're allowed ONE to the featured folder, and 3 to the other folders, which means the 5 peices you submitted yesterday, 2 (?) to the general and 3 (?) to the free verse are breaking the rules. But I ignored that and hit the accept button on all of them because we're inactive.

Now back on the subject of things not getting submitted quickly. I check my deviantart everyday just to accept things for this group even though I don't make this group active, 2 of the other Admins have full-time jobs, 1 of them just graduated high school and the other one is a cat.

Yes, I could make this place run full automatic like every other lazy ass group admin out there but NO, because at the end of the day if I want to put the 2 hours every morning and over $600 every year back into this group I would like to say "Yes, I'm not a lazy ass and yes I actually do care about this group that has been mine for over 7 years."

Now, I know what your thinking "This bitch just told me off." (probably not in those words but still), either way you've stepped into something that you can't win, don't like, leave, realise that you screwed up, stay, either way not my problem. *Prances off into the sunset*

I didn't come here to be 'told off' because that's not really what I was getting at. I realize it's been a bit inactive. You can't really get mad at me, either, because I don't know anything of the admin activity/inactivity, so.. try to see my side of things as well? Also, I am not breaking any rules because I have not over-submitted things. If the basic rule is 3 deviations per folder and 1 featured, then yeah... I haven't broken any rules, because I did exactly what your group would only allow me to do. I am merely an artist trying to get my work out there and noticed, I could not have posted more even if I wanted to. I'm not going to 'run off' because I have nothing to run from. I never typed any 'accusing messages', I was only inquiring about the problem that you've now made me more aware of. How could I have known about the other admins being busy with other things? I'm just someone trying to get their work noticed and was only aware of the inactivity, I had not been aware as to the reason(s) of the inactivity. I hope we have cleared up this misunderstanding by now.

.... You realise I know my own groups rules better then anyone right? And when I say you have broken the rules I mean you have broken the rules, but as I said, let's ignore that fact because inactivity.

As for bring up this problem wouldn't it have been better to note the group instead of publically saying "You guy aren't accepting my work."
Also if you REALLY wanted to have known why it takes us ages to accept pieces wouldn't you have gone, nice and simply, "Why does it take you guys so long to accept stuff?" OR even better you could have read the Rules/F.A.Q. which actually has a section which states:

"Q: Why do my submissions take so long to go into the gallery?
Submissions to this group, unlike most other groups, are accepted by a vote of the admins. This sometimes takes awhile due to us being on and off line at different times."

Maybe for future reference, you should read the Rules and F.A.Q. which would have saved both me AND you the hassle of this unnecessary conversation.

Yes, more or less! I for one have been extremely busy with school and horses so I have been MIA for a bit.
