Hi, may I ask how you're able to change the size of the text, underline or bold it? Also, how you can add icons and set everything in the middle? I'm still kind of new to the 'Custom' widget and I figure out how to do any of that, no option to do it shows up. If you could tell me how to do it, it would be super helpful and greatly appreciated. Thank you! :D

very surprised to see my eagle submission declined where as i see many birds and animals full pics in this group.

JWeber2112 Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2016  Hobbyist Photographer
Hello rkamalart. We have many submissions, that we have to decline because they are submitted to the wrong folder. You submitted your eagle to the birds folder. There is however a folder specifially for digital art. I've sent you a request for the eagle picture, because it is a very impressive picture.
Please don't be offended and understand, that this is nothing personal or anything like that. It is really difficult to move every wrongly submitted photo per hand and writing an explanation under every submission would take an equal amount of time. If I haven't reached my submission limit and feel that the picture would fit in well into our group, I usually send an invite. I did however just come back from an expedition and am still a little behind on my duties + I have to study for upcoming exams. I hope you understand now, why we declined your picture. (:

We look forward to many more successful submissions.

Cheers!

You may ask. I just don't know how to answer. I'm not ignoring you or anyone else. It seems, that some of the contributors are a little busy at the time. I just arrived home from a 3 1/2 month work trip to Brazil yesterday and have just finished checking the submissions. From my point of view, there are no problems with your submissions. Unfortunately there are two people needed into accept any submission to the group.

It's alright,I just asked because my submissions have been expired several times recently.I think "to be declined" is more acceptable than "to be expired" without any explanation...
Now I understand that it's only because of the business of admins.

Thanks for the reply.:-)

Actually, it shouldn't be. I'm reallly sad to see the group falling apart like that. I am voting regularly, but each picture takes two votes to be accepted or denied. Other contributors are voting regularly as well. It seems that everybody is a little busy right now. I can only speak for myself in the end, but I am doing an internship in Brazil and am working pretty much all day. At least every third day (or night), I vote for the submissions.

I would like the group to be more active, feature artists regularly, make some contests and stuff...

But: First, I don't have full administrative access. Second, I don't know how to do features. I have never done one. If someone wants to pitch in some ideas (or a tutorial for real dummies), I think I could start the weekly feature again. The problem though doesn't seem to be a lack of submissions but rather a lack of voting contributors.

Which is why I think, that we should look for more contributors, that actually have time to vote and at the same time show a passion and understanding for animals and photography. But again, since I don't have administrative access, I cannot invite people to become contributors.

I hope that explains the situation a little bit. I will try to get things going internally again. But I cannot promise anything.
