Raven here. I just spend the last 4 hours working on the gallery and here are the changes...
Removed some folders. Photo's in those folders have been moved to the right general folders (anime, movie, comics). We went from 60 folders to around 30ish now.
Removed all the folders that the co-founders couldn't vote on. Made new folders with the same names and all the photo's have been moved into those. Why? Because now the co-founders can vote on all folders. It's a nifty loophole but it just takes a long while to move all the photo's and such.
We still cannot vote for the featured folder so I have closed it and created a featured folder. You can submit 1 deviation a day into it and it needs 2 votes instead of 1. We'll see how and when but I'm thinking I'll just move those photo's into the original featured folder every day so they can properly shine on the front page. ^_^
Rearranged the folders. The icon contest appears first then all the series/games/shows that have their own folder appear then the general folders and then the featured folder. I did this in the hope that this will prevent wrong folder submissions and such.
The anime folder is full. Anime 2 has been created and is open for submissions!
DA started glitching sometimes and I am really worried that I might have deleted devations that had to be moved. DA would show me the folder was empty and I would delete it but then I would be missing photo's in the general folders I later noticed. If your photo's are no longer in the group please resubmit them. I did not mean to delete them but I cannot exactly move what DA doesn't show me x_x;
Deleted devations and photo's from deleted accounts have been removed to create space again.
So thats it. If anything isn't working properly please leave a comment! I double checked the settings and all should work fine now but after staring at my screen for 4 hours I am easy to miss things x_x;
Oh and all the current submissions that were made into folders that have now been deleted will expire in a week. We simply cannot accept them or decline them no matter what we try. You can also withdraw your submission if it's still in your inbox. After it's been withdrawn or expired you can resubmit your photo.
All the photo's that have expired already you can now also submit!
We're really sorry about this! We hope things will run smoothly now. Took a while to get it all done but hey it's now open for all! Thank you all for your patience!
Have a great day!
