Hello dear members,
As you know, we're quite a huge group by now with over 25,000 members to date, thanks to you. We're quite proud of this number, but unfortunately, it makes it impossible for us to give feedback to every submission that we decline because we simply don't have the time and capacities anymore. BUT we're always willing to give feedback (or just a few words on why we declined your submission) IF you request it!
Sometimes you certainly won't agree with the reason we give you because you may think it's subjective or does not really do your artwork justice. Of course, you have every right to disagree, but if you do, please just remain respectful, perhaps ask again if something is unclear or you feel your artwork has been misconstrued. We do make mistakes and considering the amount of submissions we get every day (about 150+), it's only natural to slack off a little
Unfortunately, we've had some nasty disputes with members lately because they wouldn't agree with what we told them. Some of them attacked us, some insulted us and some even threatened to spread word around dA about how they've been treated unfair by our group and certain staff members in particular.
Now, please be fair and treat us with respect even if you sometimes don't agree with our opinion. It's never personal!
Please note that we can't accept every artwork that you submit because we're a group of high standards and we just want to keep the quality that we're known for. Thus, some artworks have to be declined due to lack of quality. That's not to say that you don't have talent, it's just that you might need a little more training before your artworks are accepted.
Sharing art and submitting to groups should be fun for everyone, including those who vote on your artworks!
Lots of dA love, #EliteArtists
Members who continue to insult and attack us, we'll be banned from the group permanently!
