Hello everyone, this is your Co-Founder, SketchSong, speaking!

I know there is a lot of frustration regarding the people who blatantly ignore the rules and just post whatever they want. We know what the problem is, we know how to fix it, but we can't do anything about it right now (although we do appreciate everyone trying to help!)

The problem is that the Founder is the only one who has access to the admin area. That means we can't turn on the voting, we can't kick out members, and we can't control the submissions. We haven't heard from the Founder in awhile and the last thing we heard was that she was very sick and couldn't get on much. I don't know if it got worse or what's happening, but getting better is more important than an internet group.

For now, we can't do anything except regulate it manually. I've been going through the folders everyday, deleting things that don't belong and moving things into their correct folders (if some of you have been doing this it would be IMMENSELY appreciated if you put things in the correct folders. I have spent a lot of time correcting this problem and it'd be very helpful if everyone paid attention to where they were submitting things.)

As for the Christmas Contest, I haven't heard from any of the other Co-Founder's but I assume the Founder had a plan for that. We'll have to leave it for now, but don't worry! One way or another it will be judged and there will be prizes (even if they all have to come from me).

I just wanted to let everyone know what was happening. I'm still here and if you have problems please don't hesitate to ask. I will help as best as I can.

All I ask is for everyone to please be patient, thank you.

If everyone in the group left a comment on the person's profile who keeps submitting art that doesn't belong, that would probably fix it. ;)

I bet everyone wouldn't be able to keep their comments civil, which would then be the same as bullying. Probably the most annoyed ones have already went and commented on their page about it anyway, so I don't see why all members would have to. :shrug:

Well you know what they say: insanity is trying the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Since nothing has worked thus far, obviously a different approach needs to be tried.

I can help for the contest's prizes with requests too, if you need so. Thank you for all that you are doing to make this group living despite the Founder's convalescence...!
