:bulletblue: Declined Submissions: 'Why Was My Art Declined?'
Journal Update from Famous Faces Group

An individual who submitted a drawing to the group is upset because I declined it.

She then left an obnoxious comment on the group's main page (which I hid from view).

As the group rules state if you are upset about something, I ask that you please contact me in private, using the group's P.M. system to discuss it. Don't complain on the group's public page about whatever it is.

This group is not intended for art critiques.

Apparently the grouchy artist who bit my head off feels each and every group on dA should exist to give every artist feedback on their art.

She also feels irate that I mention somewhere on the rules page I don't have the time to research every piece that comes through the group.

As I explained to this grouchy, rude artist under a journal entry she wrote (on her own personal dA account page), where she whined that "deviant art is dead" and groups don't provide feedback:
(My response to the cranky artist):
You apparently have no understanding that I am the lone moderator of an art group that gets dozens of submissions per week (it used to be 3 or 4 pages per week, until I changed the settings to take 3 drawings per week to only 1 or 2).

The other three moderators stopped showing up to help me out with the group about two years ago.

I just glanced over the piece of yours that was declined, and I recall now why I turned it down. You submitted a piece that broke one of our group rules. (Did you even read the group rules before submitting it?)
This group, Famous Faces Group, currently has around 2,999 members.

I took over moderation of this group from the original owner several years ago, because she was planning on closing it permanently.

I am having to moderate this group all alone.
The other two or three moderators (contributors) have not voted on anything, or shown up, to help with this group for about two (or more?) years now!

(Edit: two moderators last visited here and helped out in 2014, the third one last showed up in 2013.)

I used to accept about 3 or 4 drawings per week per group member for this group, but we were getting up to around 30 drawings per page for 3 to 5 pages! There was no way I could keep up with voting on that volume of work all alone.

So please give me a break if I don't get around to voting on every piece instantly, or if I do not respond to your questions at all, or if I give you a very terse reply if I do reply.

This group exists for you to send your work in  to share with other artists who are interested in seeing drawings and paintings of celebrities. It's not meant to be an art critique group.

There are several other groups on dA who do nothing but critiques, or, you can become an advanced member and ask others on dA to give you critiques.

I'd like to see this grouchy person who griped at me maintain a group of 2,999 members all by herself and see how she appreciates dealing with the volume of work all alone, as well as trying to answer the occasional artist inquiry or gripe.

No, I don't have the time or interest to look up every piece of art a person sends in or to gently explain why your art was declined.

Again, this group does not exist for Art Critiques. I'm not interested, via this group, in helping you to "become a better artist" by telling you how you can improve your drawing skills.

This group exists for you to send your work in  to share with other artists who are interested in seeing drawings and paintings of celebrities.

There are several other groups on dA who do nothing but critiques, or, you can become an advanced (paid) member and ask others on dA to give you critiques.
--------------------
As usual...

-this group only takes art of well-known celebrities
(we still get people sending in drawings of their kid brother, their aunt, or pet duck)

-please do not send in art that has objects on top of it or behind
(such as scans or photos where pencils, keys, or table tops are shown - yes, I get several of these types of submissions to the group per week)
----------------
And please remember, I'm moderating a group that has 2,900+ members all alone.

I'm still looking for a full-time employment position. If or when I land one, I'll have even less time to moderate this group or just visit dA than I do now.

So, if you think things are bad now, just wait until I get hired somewhere.

Hi. You're breaking the group rules.
If you have an issue with the group, we ask that you send us a PM via the group's PM feature.
Why your art was declined, please see
famousfacesgroup.deviantart.co…
We get a lot of submssions per week. I am the lone moderator, don't have the time to research every piece, hence it's the artist's responsibility to ID who the person in the art is. Your art may have been declined because you put pencils on top of it, or it's just a terrible drawing - I don't know, because I don't recall the specific piece. With a diva attitude such as yours, I won't be sad to see you go. 
Edit. If you have any further questions or comments, please use the PM system. Thank you.

I am the founder of this group. Please see the latest journal entry.

This group is currently unable to accept art because my computer is broken, so I cannot vote on art.

Any art you send to this group will expire. The other moderators have not been showing up to vote on art in over a year or more.

I have no idea how long I will be without regular internet access.
