We're almost at 500 members which is a great milestone. However, I would love to see some more high-quality submissions! I know that the deviantART member system is broken and just...well...bad. It's nearly impossible to keep up with all of your different groups, and their different submissions requirements. Plus it's just time consuming and often doesn't bear a lot of fruit. Having said that, I have tried to make the submission process as easy as possible. Hopefully that encourages you to submit here.
For any new members, I'll remind you that you get 2 submissions per day! Some groups will only allow 1 per week, or even 1 per month! I get that they have to with 10,000 members, but keeping your interest with such large gaps in time seems impossible. So submit those photos!
One last thing. I wouldn't mind having some people help me out with the accepting of submissions. I've pretty much been working as a one-man show lately, but it would be nice to have another set of eyes on the submissions that come in. I'd love for my current Contributors to be interested in this duty, so they will get top priority. However, if any other members want to as well, send me a message. My rules are that you must be a damn awesome photographer yourself, and you must be very active on the site. If that sounds like you, let me know!
