Quick edit: Contests will take a while longer to figure out. I suffered a pretty decent concussion earlier this week and this... well yeah, kind of put a stopper in things. I'm okay now, but yeah, it wasn't just some pointless delay because I couldn't be bothered or anything.

Just letting you know. :)


Yes, yes I know. You have the right to hit me right now, because that level of carelessness is hardly acceptable. Anyhow, let's get some things done around here, eh? Here are the orders of business:

:bulletgreen: The Folder Fiasco
It has become quite apparent - to those of you who write poetry, especially - that one folder cannot hold the lot. To combat this, DreamhazeMaster has now split poetry into a number of genres, which you can see descriptions of at…. What I have also noticed is that stuff like "Poetry 1" "Poetry 2" etc. is just too messy. So how would everyone feel if I deleted those folders, and you would all be free to resubmit to the new poetry folders? I think it will really contribute to the cleanliness of the gallery.

Furthermore, what would be your opinion if I did the same for Fictitious Works?

All other folders shall remain unchanged.

:bulletgreen: Moderation
If you want to be given a small job around the group, I will be happy to make you a contributor. Anything to make my far-too-busy life easier will be more than appreciated - from patrolling galleries to holding contests. Also, any of the old contributors; if you wish to opt-out that's fine too, just let me now. With the restructuring of the group I wish to make sure I know what everyone's role is.

:bulletgreen: Submission Restrictions
You are still only bound by deviantART's terms of service, and the requirement that your work is written. If it complies with that, then you can submit to the group under the relevant folder. Due to the sheer volume of submissions, moderation is nearly impossible without a varied team of people willing to read anything and everything... so we will continue to automatically accept new material.

:bulletgreen: Overdue Contests
Due to the unforeseen deactivation of fictionalnostalgia's account, there has been a lengthy delay with the most recent contest. This will be sorted out before the new year. Likewise, a very old contest that ran earlier this year never had its winner selected and prizes awarded. The prize will have to wait until I get my next pay and the money finishes transferring through PayPal, but the winners shall be selected before Christmas Day as well.

An Ending Note
Yes, you still have the right to hit me, chastise me, yell at me, whatever. I've been a terrible admin over the past many months and this restructuring is both an effort to redeem myself as well as a wish to restore order.

It's sort of funny, you know. When I started this group - just after the groups platform was released, actually - I had no idea it would explode, so to speak. I thought it would be this quiet little thing that only a few people paid attention to. Nevertheless, here we are today...

Ah well, I hope this is good news for you lot. Please feel free to make more suggestions in the comments; I am happy to consider all of them. Also, if you would like to be a contributor, now's the time to ask. :)

So...what do you need help with?
Pseudinymous Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Well, I don't have anything in mind in particular, just helping run the group in general, doing odd jobs, keeping an eye on things.

And, yes, yelling at me when I appear to be too absent. :paranoid:

If you find that you need more contributors, I'd like to be one.
Pseudinymous Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Sorry for the late reply, that'd be great! Are there any particular roles/responsibilities that you'd like to take care of? Also, do you have any ideas to contribute to the group? Doesn't matter if you have none/no preference, am just interested. :)
MysticKenji Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I could hold contests every once in a while. I don't have any particular ideas yet though.

I wouldn't mind helping if there's any specific areas you need help in.

Don't worry about inactivity or neglect around here... I've been lurking around my own group for the past month and a half and I feel terrible :iconruncryplz:

I wouldn't mind being a contributor.

But then a little chaos never hurt anyone, right? :-) Hang in there, it will all work out. Happy Holidays!

At least you're alive. That's a good thing.
