We’re making some changes to the group right now. Most of these are minor and are already done. We also have a major. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I hate it when someone changes something I love without asking me, or even telling me. That’s what this journal is going to be for. To keeps you guys and gals in the know. It’s also a chance to ask questions, show support or bring up concerns. Without further ado…
Removing Ninja vs Gladiator folder- This was established way back when I hoped this would be a regular thing. However, assorted behind the scenes drama has kept this from completing, much less be a regular thing. After much heart-searching, I decided the folder is in the way and we’re moving it into a sub folder under comics. For some reason we are not able to move around folders because of some bug on DA. So we will delete the folder and resubmit it.
Hulk 2099- My personal project (
), where I do my version of the Hulk 2099 comic. Unlike the Deadliest Warrior comic this one is coming along great, and I’m very pleased to be sharing it will you all. A bunch of the pages were already in the group, so to add them into the folder I had to remove them, and resubmit.
So if any of you are wondering why you just got spammed with Hulk 2099, that would be why. Sorry about that.
Those were all minor changes. No big deal for most of you. However, this next one is a doozy and this what needs to get talked about.
Change in submission frequency- We are (as of this writing) at 2,047 members! It’s an awesome number, but also a responsibility. As you might guess from our previous journal, no matter how many submissions we get, we refuse to surrender quality or endanger our focus. The burden grows daily. Suuxe and I split the work as best we can, but back-ups in accepting/declining keep happening. After discussion, Suuxe and I decided to change the number of times you can submit. Don’t start sweating. It’s still pretty generous.
-3 to the folder of the “month-folders”
-2 to the “comics folder”
-1 to the “work in progress folder”
I don’t see this causing many problems. Not many of you submit more than three a week anyway. Add the fact that the comics and work in progress folder are under-utilized, I think everyone will benefit. People will have to think a little harder about what they submit, but it shouldn’t unduly restrict them.
By the way, if you didn’t bother to read and comment on this journal, then don’t expect us to take you seriously if you complain about it days/weeks after this post.
