I am honestly not sure where to begin this journal. I have not been the most active member of dA for some while and for that I apologize. I am however thankful for my co-founder and contributors for helping me out and that they have kept the group somewhat alive. So I guess I will start this journal by apologizing for lack of activity, but also thanking you all for still being here.
Quite some time ago now I was discussing a few things with the rest of the admins of this group, and the idea to write a new journal was brought up where we can discuss possible changes this group needs.
- So then, first things first: the folders.
I personally believe that the "Couples n. love" folder should be deleted and that the art should be divided into the digital or traditional, etc, folders instead. Any thoughts about this? Additionally, is there any folder you think is missing, or any that you feel are unnecessary?
- Secondly: rules.
I guess we can start with the question: How are people in this group feeling about fetish art? Any kind. Are you comfortable with it, or does it bother you seeing it in your inbox, and should we have stricter rules that requires the artist to put a mature filter on it? Or completely forbid it? Of course, anything too much needs a mature filter on it in general, but where do you think we should draw the line? What do you personally think about the subject? Don't be afraid to speak up!
- And last but not least: quality control.
Don't get us wrong, we are all for newbies who are here and generally really tries to do their best - but there's a difference between a newbie and someone who draws lots and lots but doesn't put much effort into it. We have been thinking of starting some kind of minimal quality control, such as not allowing use of any kind of (flash) game to create your dragon art. At least do not submit those to the group. Then there's also such as colours escaping the lines and leaving white color around the lines, and things that generally doesn't require any special skills to fix. We as the admins, are from now on going to keep our eyes open about these things, so keep that in mind.
The rules are going to be updated very soon and I would very much appreciate if you have anything to say to speak up about it now below this journal, or send me a note.
Thank you for participating and helping us out!
Have a great time!
