Lately we've been getting A LOT
of submissions from people who fail to read our guidelines prior to submitting and we've had to decline A LOT
of work as a result.
This is a reminder to current members and new members alike, please do us all a favor and read the rules!
I spent a huge chunk of my time going through them and trying to make things as clear as possible (even clarifying the folders and content summaries) and yet we get tons of submissions a day that completely ignore it. It's frustrating for all of the mods and myself to have to remind people over and over again to read the rules when we have to decline work and it's something that should go without being said.
If you join a group, be courteous and brush up on what their expectations are, because when we see people blatantly ignoring them we assume they don't care and thus decided we're like every other Who group that accepts everything that comes through our doors. While we do our best to inform everyone what they're doing wrong, we can't babysit incoming submissions like this anymore, it's taking far too much time for us to sort out in a group as big as this.
If we find repeat offenders (and there are quite a few) we are in talks about starting to ban those who continually disobey the rules, we don't like having to resort to something like that (and compared to a lot of groups on dA, we're very lenient) but if it saves us the frustration of having to remind that person over and over again what they're doing wrong well... We have no choice.
All I'm saying is please for the love of all that is holy
, read the rules and everyone will come out happy!
Thanks in advance,
