Hey pony peeps!
I've been noticing a lot lately that sometimes, if a submission is denied, the artist that submitted it will resubmit it in the same folder, often immediately after denial. It's pretty uncommon for us to deny a submission on accident, so there's a reason that this has happened. If we accidentally deny your deviation, we comment to apologize and ask you to resubmit.
The overwhelming majority of the times that deviations are denied are because you've submitted to the wrong folder. As stated in the rules, we aren't required to respond telling you to submit to the proper folder. It takes a lot of time to comment to each member that has erroneously submitted to a folder and that is time we don't necessarily have. First thing you need to do when you see that your deviation was declined is double-check the folder to which you've submitted your piece.
If you feel that your submission has been denied in error, PLEASE DO NOT RESUBMIT IMMEDIATELY!! There is a link on the submission notice for comments. Please use that to ask us why we denied the submission.
I'm not asking this because we're lazy, or mean, or anything else like that. I'm asking this because this club is a community each member should do his or her part to make our community better. We love you guys and your awesome art and we want to do our best for you!
In other news...
Do you remember that contest that we ran back in November that ended up flopping? We got a lot of interest in it, but there just wasn't enough time for everyone to get submissions done. So we're going to give it another shot here soon. This time, I figured there's no reason not to give you guys a whole month to get it done! Keep an eye on the journal for the date for that, and refer to this entry: [link]
if you don't know what the heck I'm talking about.
Ciao for now!
