Hey guys it's me BabyButta
making another journal post with some good news and updates. for starters I went along and finally decided what we should do with the features folder. Now a lot of you were concerned with submissions to that particular folder, you will not be able to submit to it, sorry, but you can however still submit to any other folder that best represents your work (Please keep them in the correct folders) I will however carefully review the newest or older submissions and pick 6 pictures that would be featured. I will grab a new journal skin soon and we will also have a featured section there, and probably giving shout outs to our most active, and contributing members. I don't know what exactly we might be doing for contests in the future. BIGBOY2480
is usually on top of that. I do want to create a donation pool for points for our group so we can have point giveaways prizes for our contests. For some strange reason DA has not given the donation widget to groups yet...Which sucks donkey balls. So I will be collecting some data seeing if people would like a donation pool and if so I will see what I can do to get one.
in other news...Let's talk about the photography folder.
So after doing some early spring cleaning, and adding some new tags to most of the folders, I keep coming across something rather displeasing. A lot of you might not like what I have to say, but it's going to be said anyways. If you are using a camera phone to take any of your pictures, you better sure hope it looks high quality because it will be removed from the groups photography folders. Only because a lot of the camera phone quality submissions we get are nudes. We do have a nudity sub folder in the group, but most of the photos are really subtle, as in subtle there is a certain taste to all of those images, also they were shot by professional photographers using professional models. Now I'm not saying you need to be any one of those to be featured in our folder, but you should strive to be more professional with your content. I'm all here for body positivity, and loving your nakedness, but at the same time there's levels to this shit. We just can't accept low quality camera phone nudes into our group. Now I'm suggesting to those who do post an excessive amount of nudes to our group who are serious about modeling, and photography to definitely invest in a lot of time and effort to getting more high quality pictures. We are looking for works that have more taste and artistic appeal. We ain't here just for tits and naught bits.
