Submission Issues - Updates
After talking with a few people about the submission issues discussed below, I have found that there is currently no way to do what I want. The submission limit is just that, a submission limit and it does not take into consideration rejections. Also, ever since I turned it off last week, we have been constantly getting people submitting multiple shots per day. It is with that in mind that we decided to turn back on the submission limit.
So what does this mean to you? Make sure you submit only appropriate work and submit it to the correct folder!
I hate bringing this up again, but we keep seeing members who don't follow the rules. If you choose not to comply and we reject your submission, you will now be required to wait until the next submission period before trying again. So be careful when you submit. You've been warned, so no complaints! And now I promise not to bring this up again.
On a similar note, how do you feel about the current amount of submissions? We don't want to be overwhelming you. The group has been steadily growing, and we are now getting over 150 submissions per week. We are tosing around the idea of going back to 1 submission every 2 weeks (which is how the club used to be), but want to get feedback from you. So respond to the poll, and let us know.
A few weeks ago, DA introduced a feature into groups that automatically tracks and limits the number of submissions per member. We currently have this set to 1 per week, according to the group rules. This seemed to be working great, but apparently it doesn't work quite like we thought.
It has come to my attention that if a user has a submission rejected for any reason, they are not allowed to resubmit until the next week. That's not what we intended. We will accept one deviation per week. I'm currently looking into the issue to see if anything can be done. But please make sure you are choosing the correct folders and submitting scapes (reasons for rejection)!
With this in mind, I'm going to turn off the auto monitoring for now. However, we better not start seeing multiple submissions from the same user or it gets turned back on and you'll just have to suffer through it. So don't get any funny ideas and start submitting your whole gallery.
Sorry for any inconveniences this has caused, and hopefully we'll have it sorted out soon.
We are always looking for ways to improve the group in any way so if you have any feedback for us, send it.
Really, send it in!
