Edit: I wrote the wrong dates for my vacation. D: Sorry about that. I won't be back until 12/09, not 12/02.
First of all, I wanted to introduce myself as the new founder for the PeinXKonanFC group. I should have done this about a month ago when I was made the founder, but I actually didn't know I was the founder until just yesterday (hence why I haven't been very active in the group and I'm very sorry about that). I hope I will be a good founder for the group and make it a great group to be a member of.
There hasn't been a major update to the group since 2010-2011, so I figure now is a good time to renovate the group and make some changes. It'll probably take me a month or two to update the group, so please be patient in the meanwhile. I hope to make the group much more active and give all of you more activities and events to partake in.
Here's what I plan to add/update (if needed and in no particular order):
Folders and submission guidelines
I would also like to include you in the renovation process. If there's anything that you would like to see in the group, please let me know in a comment in this journal. I want to make this group enjoyable for everyone, so please don't hesitate to voice your ideas/opinions, even if you think they seem silly or dumb. I can't promise I can or will use your ideas, but I promise to consider them. (And since I'm sure someone will mention it, I plan to organize a contest in the near future--probably for January.)
Also, just a heads up, while I'm updating the group, I probably won't be paying much attention to submissions to the gallery. I will work on organizing and updating the gallery first so that submissions can continue. If you submit artwork to the gallery and don't see it, that's why.
Would anyone be interested in being a co-founder for the group? I will probably mostly need help with voting submissions, though I wouldn't mind help with updating and running the group in general. If you're interested, please comment on this journal. If there's enough interest, I will write another journal with details on my expectations and an application. Otherwise I will probably just contact those that are interested individually.
I know it's a little late, but would anyone be interested in participating in a Secret Santa? If you're interested, please comment on this journal. If you let me know if you're interested by the end of the day Thursday, 11/29, I will post another journal on Friday, 11/30 with more details. Otherwise I'll just post another journal later if there's enough interest. The Secret Santa will probably last until mid-January since I'm posting this so late in the month and I want to give people more time on their gifts (normally I would have asked for participant information mid-November instead of late-November).
Another heads up: I will be going on vacation this Friday, 11/30 and will not have access to a computer or the Internet until either Sunday 12/09 or Monday 12/10. That means that I will be unable to respond to comments, notes, submissions, etc. If you're waiting for me to respond to something and you don't hear anything next week, that's why.
Thanks for reading,
