Questionable groups (need your help) + Daily Feats

Journal Entry: Sat Apr 17, 2010, 7:11 AM


Changed my journal skin, and yes I'm a Muse groupie, I'm obsessed with their music


From today on I will keep a list, a list of groups that have questionable judgement on deviations. This is not a request to stop using these groups, just a warning that your deviation could be questionably declined.

Please DO read the reasons behind the groups for further explanation!

1. CanonPhoto suggested by Dynnnad (A few bad experiences)
2. Black-White-Club suggested by DutchMacPhisto (Photo was "too sad" Photo: dutchmacphisto.deviantart.com/…)
3. GLBT-Pride-Club suggested by random-is-life  Reason: comments.deviantart.com/5/3163…
4. Sign4all suggested by zaz14ispottermad  Reason: comments.deviantart.com/5/3163…

MEMBERS THAT ARE INVOLVED IN THESE GROUPS READ:
This is not a personal attack on you, I am just listing bad experiences so people are warned. Don't give me shit about it, I won't reply to it.

This is where your help comes in!
Feel free to add your experiences to this journal, I know this happens a lot so let's help each other prevent this from happening or to do something about it!

Please do add a good reason why, otherwise I have no grounds to put it in my list.


Now on to a lighter subject, features of the weekend!

Enjoy!!!

At the Canon-Photo group we try to keep up a standard of quality, and by doing this some/most photos that are submitted don't pass through.
I know personally when the whole groups thing started out i used to get pissed right off when my photos weren't accepted. I thought they were awesome, why didnt everyone else? well eventually you get over that and use the decline as motivation to do better.

Groups arent like picking teams for dodgeball on the playground at school. It isnt personal, its about the quality of the photo. If you ask for a reason we will gladly give it to you. Maybe you will try it out and see if the feedback was actually helpful. It is always better than name calling and having a hissy fit. they will never get you anywhere.. online, in art or in life.


there are many shady groups out there.. and Canon-Photo is NOT one of them.

I'd suggest you bring it up in the groups forum instead of talking it away, if my moderators are immature I immediately take action against them.

At canon-photo they are too emotionally involved with their replies, they should reply according to group-rules and they shouldn't lower their selves to name-calling.

I am not just talking about my experiences, I've seen several people and several comments on the mainpage that just reek of immaturity.

It is not how Canon should be represented.

I'm sorry but some of the moderators are very immature. No other word for it.

Yeah Canon-Photo have declined a few of mine, which is fine, but they say they'll give reasons if asked, and I've asked several times and got nothing.

The Canon-Photo has got new contributors within the last couple months. All requests for explanations are replied to with feedback on improvements.

I requested to join a digital art group and the responce was a decline and the reason for that is:

---------------------------------------------------
Hello! :hug:

Your works are lovely, in fact you are a potential member, but at this moment I am sorry to have to decline your request.
I'm positive that you will improve and do a lot of great work! Please think of us when you do because we will be waiting for you. :)

Sorry this message comes a little late.

I hope you understand and I encourage you to create more digital works! If you wish you can +devwatch us and keep abreast of the group's news :tighthug:
---------------------------------------------------

So that's my experience and it upset me quite a fair bit. Yes I do have personal issues going on at the moment but even so I try my hardest and yet get as good as told I'm not good enough and my work is inadequate for this group/club.

:icondynnnad:
Dynnnad Featured By Owner Apr 18, 2010
But they did give you a reasonable explanation.

I'd suggest to go to other digital groups. I know this upset you, but I am looking for groups that barely give any feedback or ridiculous feedback.

Well it was pretty ridiculous in all honesty. I was hurt and offended to the extent I wanted to quit dA and take my inadequate work with me.

You need to stand above it, these are only a few people with a certain taste of art.

They are not everyone, appreciate the support you are getting from the people who do like your work

Thanx. I was very very upset last night but lucky I have some very good friends here on dA =rockgem & ~lmmdi who told me there will always be people trying to drag you down and make you feel pathetic. Sometimes it's because they're jealous and other times it's because their just horrible and rude people. Either way I shouldn't just pack everything in over a silly message.

i reckon everyone has some bad experiences with any of groups. do not forget one thing - such a group is basically monopoly with few (one) in charge. and always is problem satisfy taste of a individual. what i like or don't like, you can consider different. i am not here as a defender, a advocate of any from groups. if my work has been declined, i attempt find out reason and who kicked out my submission.

I am not blaming any groups either, it's rather a collection of complaints, and if the groups take interest they can work on those complaints. Most of them seem rather careless to these things, so I make a list.
