I don't write journals a lot. Only for important reasons do I take time
to write any journal for any of my groups. But this is a subject that always
has to be addressed with this group and the people who join it
READ THE FUCKING RULES!! It is really that simple. I really I am tired of telling
people this. I am annoyed that people do not read the rules, that are placed at
the top, they are all there. Biggest to the smallest, so there are no confusions.
But there are many. And it is simply because people want to join, want their
work featured in this group, but people don't want/feel the need to read the rules.
Which is completely shitty. Most people have no idea how much of a damn hassle it
is to have to go and decline pieces I have already declined 2 times before, PLUS wrote
a comment explaining why it was declined for future reference, to help one learn the group.
Which was ignored. I hate having to decline pieces because they break rules that weren't read.
I also hate having to write LONG detailed comments as to why the piece was declined because
simply declining it the first 2 times with a simple comment was not good enough. I hate it. So read.
This group keeps growing, leaps and bounds it feels like. I am very particular about what is accepted.
BUT ya know what? Everyone gets their work voted on. If everyone else can follow the rules, Idk why this
select 100+ people cannot grasp the concept. But the breaks end here....
The 3 strikes and you're out rule applies in another way now, if I have to decline the same piece 3+ times.
Goodbye! 620+ members and that is just within this group. I don't have the time for people who don't respect
this group enough to know what is and is not accepted. It's very easy to learn.
Two ways- works with any group actually.
1.) Read the rules before joining, making sure you like how it sounds & that your work will fit in.
2.) Look in the groups gallery and its folders, again making sure your work fits with what is there.
Sorry if I sound like a bitch. But running a group is not easy. The more members, the more
photo submissions, the more work. I work a lot on this group. It was my first, I love Macro.
It is a big passion of mine, so to put a lot of time into this group to give everyone a great group.
I just ask for a bit of respect. Read the rules. If they change, I will notify. But otherwise they
have been the same since it formed
[I plan to link people to this journal in the future. Because it just needs to be said.]
