Yes, you don't need to be a contributor to submit art and receive comments!
You can submit 1 deviation per week for comments, and 1 per month for red-lining.
If your art is declined we'll provide an explanation, if you don't receive one feel free to ask in the correspondence, not in the main page.
:target: Read the submission guidelines here!

:star: Be in the Feature Folder :star:

This folder will showcase the most active members of the group, and the contributors of course!
If you want to be there, just be active! We release a Journal entry montly featuring the member of the month and put a few of his/her art in this gallery.

Yes of course, we alway need contributors! Just send a note to the group following instructions explained in the dedicated journal.…

We will accept only affiliation related to showcasing art and help artists in any way. Maybe all groups are of this types, but if not, don't apply please.

:pointr: How to: Receive constructive feedback
:pointr: How to: Become a commenter
:pointr: What is a Constructive comments?

:star: Commenters: Who are them, and what they do. :star:

Commenters are the equivalent of moderators and contributors, as part of our group you'll have to be on DA regularly, we don't want a full dedication, but the project have big ambition so we need people who access and is active several days of the week.
So before signing your interest with a contributor request please be sure you can guarantee a certain amount of time to be an active commenter, what you'll have to do is:

:pointr: Give Feedback
This is the main activity of a commenter of course, you'll have to check the deviation submitted to the group and give the constructive feedback to those under your galleries, and then accept them so other people of the group can comment too.

:pointr: Look for Member to Feature
While managing your galleries you'll see how active people are, so if you notice someone feature worthy just notice to the group, so we can make the montly journal, or maybe ask to be a contributor too!

:pointr: Suggestions & Events
As moderator you can also suggest anything you think could improve the group, and promote activities like contests, chat, giveaway, related to your galleries, of course you can merely promote other's events too.
To accomplish this work you'll be able to write new journal entries, and every entry will be subjected to the vote of the whole commenters group.

:star: Become a Commenter :star:

We're always in need of new flesh in our group so if you're willing to work hard and love to help people go on with your request!
To become a commenter you just have to write 2 comments/critique/redline previously (depending on what you want to do) and link them in your membership request!
The linked comments have to be good, and related to the category you want to moderate.

So, the steps are:
:pointr: Choose a folder to moderate from our gallery, you can chose from 1 to 3. Of course many folders = double work, so choose wisely, we prefer people who work constantly on 1 gallery than an almost inactive in 2. If you want you can suggest a new folder too.
:pointr: Pick 2 deviation from the folder chosen; The deviation must be from our galleries or if the gallery is empty must have clearly stated in the artist's comment that feedback is welcome. If you chose more than one folder to moderate you need to leave 2 feedback for each category.
:pointr: Write a constructive comment/critique or make redline (if you choose the redline folder). Remember that the feedback given through this group must be polite and helpful.
:pointr: Send the membership request from the home page of the group and add the links to your constructive feedback... don't forget to write the folders choosed and the averange amount of time you can spend for the group!

:star: Problem with a commenter? :star:

If you have some problem with a commenter please write a PM directly to the founder OR co-founders explaining the issue.
Don't make dramallama on the main page please.
