Announcement~!

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 26, 2011, 11:14 PM
Okay, first off I'm sorry for the spam there, I didn't intend do submit a blank entry.


Now onto the announcements!

Ellyntaal, our founder, has decided to step down, and has given leadership of this wonderful group to me, Wooden-Flashlight.

This isn't just about that, however, there's lots of changes that are going to be happening.

I'm going to put the group's gallery into lockdown once again for a few days, but don't worry. You will be able to submit things again very soon.

Here's what's going to happen:

:bulletblack: The rules on the front page are going to be edited.
:bulletblack: The moderators are going to be under serious consideration.
:bulletblack: There will be a Contributor's class.
:bulletblack: I'm going to attempt to make the Quality Standard more clear with examples, which will be on the front page under the rules.
:bulletblack: The galleries are going to be organized more, into sub-folders and what not. This should cut down on how many folders there actually are.
:bulletblack: Going to open a help ticket system to make sure people get their questions [That are not pertaining to deviations that are in the voting process] answered in a timely manner.

So far that's everything, and I'm going to personally be taking any questions you might have. The gallery is going to be locked down, but only for a few days until I can get everything settled and organized.

I would like to thank Voxis once again for taking me into his moderators and listening to me for the time I've been here, and thanking him for making this wonderful group. I hope to do all of you proud as it's new founder.

Suggestion, flashlight. Why don't you just delete every deviation from the group and have us all resubmit? You wouldn't have a sorting nightmare anymore and the places we are to submit would be clear and under the guidelines.

Because that would be too easy and would be kind of a dick move, don'tcha think?

Well...I'm all about simplifying complex things. I once explained M theory to group of eight year olds. A dick move? I don't know about that. I'd think that everyone would be able to re-submit more quickly and to the right categories faster than the mods could re-categorize the thousands of deviations that were on this group. Just thinking like an engineer, here.

We're almost done, the gallery should be open tomorrow.

Trust me, I understand the need for efficiency. But I don't think that would be okay, morally.

Someone needs to make like a Mature Pony Art group. :I

I don't want it. Do not want at all, but, some people will get mad that Mature art is not allowed to be submitted anymore.

Mature art should've never been allowed here in the first place. And there are several mature pony art groups, I think something like four or five at least.

Haha, thanks. Well I think I'm gonna be forced to set a "DISNEY STANDARD" for the group since not everyone is on the same page when it comes to "mature" art.
