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!

Zoulaux, 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.

Basically, you just have to prove that you're actually going to be doing things. Right now I'm going to have to say putting in for being a moderator is closed, but just for today because I need to look through the ones we have now and see who's working and who's not.

Sounds like a huge leap forward! Good luck on this!
Of course I agree with ~SailorSun546 on the mature thing. Being as this IS My Little Pony we shouldn't accept ANY mature artwork at all.

Congratulations on being made leader! :meow:

I just have one question, as I'm not sure if you made this change or if Voxis did before he stepped own: is there still going to be a limit of 1 deviation per week?
I'm not complaining, I just want to know for future reference. xD
Reply
:iconwooden-flashlight:
Wooden-Flashlight Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2011  Hobbyist Writer
At this point, I can't say for sure, but I think we will probably still keep that limit. I might bump it up to two. Only because, as a moderator I saw how many submissions come through in just a day [sometimes it was pushing 200] and I can't put that much strain on my moderators.

Will vectors from the show and other people's art still be accepted? Because it shouldn't be.

That is your opinion, I understand that, but I'm pretty sure we will still allow vectors into the club.

I know you don't like them, but a significant amount of work for Ponies in particular are vectors. I'm sorry you feel that way.
