Things have been tough to enforce lately, so I'm sure some of these rules will illicit a "SINCE WHEN?" kind of reaction because people have been getting away with it. But they've been this way since the beginning. We're going to try and get back to roots.
IN RELATED NEWS...
There will be some changes incoming, including to some of the submission guidelines above. The group just cannot continue to be managed as it is now. It's getting more and more difficult. So starting right NOW, we're instigating a submission limit. YOU MAY SUBMIT 1 PIECE OF ART A DAY! This is not the only change, but it's certainly the most needed. I know it's a pain for some, but we have nearly 4000 members. Seriously... your admins need some slack... *keels over dead*
AND MOST IMPORTANT NEWS
DO NOT donate to our treasury account: DBE-Treasury
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we've lost the account information (as well as the computer it was on). Until we can retrieve it, you'll just be donating to a blackhole for points. So keep them for yourself for now. Thank you to those who wish help keep the group running though. We're endlessly grateful for the support.
Hopefully you're all doing well, and we hope you'll stick it out through the transition.
Have a lovely day!
