If you are still waiting for your membership or submission to be approved, please write the codeword into the comments section of your correspondence item!
It should look like THIS
We have left submissions and membership requests active to the maximum
amount of time we can, so we're just sitting here waiting for you to provide that comment.But WHY should I do that?!
It says "this is ALL set, so move me right to the head of the line, baby!
" My art ALWAYS follows the rules! I shouldn't have to play these games!
Like it or not, we put this system in for a reason - or, rather, 24,000+ reasons. The amount of people who just want to submit versus the amount of people willing to volunteer and help out literally is close to 1 Helper per 3000+ people. We receive on average 250 to 500 submissions a week. Every one that we don't have to manually check because you took the time to make sure it was all set before it comes to us is one less that we have to sort through.
But how do we know you've followed the rules? You may follow them, but the 250+ other submissions your work is hiding among might contain a grab bag of stuff that does and stuff that clearly doesn't
So, we made the codeword into a shortcut. It drops us right on top of your submission and tells us "I got you, guys - I've already checked this, so you can put this right in, no problem."
In effect, you're
Yeah, finding it can be a little tricky, but once you do, you have it forever. It doesn't change.I tried looking for it in the submission rules, but I'm having trouble:
Ask for help and you shall receive it!
If you're dyslexic or it's not in your language or whatever, just tell us about it in a note
and we'll help you. The more specific you are about the problem, the better we'll be able to help you. The type of help we give you is tailored to your specific situation.
I understand this is frustrating and a lot of you just want to submit and be done, but well... there are a lot of you
and not enough people helping out.
Maybe, in the future, if we can raise enough points to renew the Super Group subscription, I'll open up a category for people who have earned it to be able to submit once a month, without codeword. For right now, though, this is how it is.I want to help!
Okay, here's the thing: the more help we get, the more we can open up submissions.
Unfortunately, this isn't something that a lot of people volunteer for or, when they do, find it to be a good fit for them, timewise or socially.
Let's face it: you guys can be pretty hard
on us and, generally speaking, no one wants to get someone cussing them out over the fact they forgot to add the codeword, much less telling them how they're horrible, elitist human beings who only favor the popular just because they declined someone for failing to provide the codeword.
We're looking for people who have had experience in the groups system and at least 1 hour a week to check and see who's submissions are ready to go and resubmit those that have provided the codeword, but accidentally expired. Thick skin is a must, as a small percentage of people on dA tend to be highly abusive.
We are also looking for people who are just interested in running feature blogs through this group and people who can translate
In both cases, Helpers will receive the ability to submit whenever they want, however much they want a month, provided that they do not abuse the ability by submitting everything in their gallery. This function is intended to help members who are having trouble with the codeword and for Helpers running features, not for Helpers to spam the group members.
If you are interested in becoming a helper, please note UnseenArtists
