So, what would you like to see if we were to have another contest? Please leave suggestions, feedback and general ideas in the comments section below.
LOOKING FOR A NEW FOUNDER!I’m sorry I’ve been such a bad founder and neglecting our group I’ve decided to hand over the reins, if anyone is interested in running this group themselves, give a reason why you want to be founder, I won’t play favorites, but whoever I think can improve the group the most, gets the job, so don't hate me for my choice.
Is anyone interested in becoming a contributor?Well out group hasn’t been very lively but if anyone is interested in becoming a contributor and helping me make our group better. Anyone is welcome, just message here and I shall promote you immediately
So we are having a contest!This is the group’s first contest; I hope we get plenty of submissions. I’ve had many ideas and given some suggestions on rules for this contest, like word play, a theme, and a word limit. Those all sound like good ideas and I will keep those in mind for later contest, for the first one I will just say: go nuts. Make what you want to make for this first contest; the theme can be anything you want, have as many words in it as you want, there are only a few rules.
It must be a short story
It must be in a text format
It can have mature content but nothing over 18
The contest will close one mouth from now on June 8th, if anyone feels they need more time it can and will be extended.
I want you to be as creative as you can for this contest but if your fanfic is all about and OC character then at least one real character form the Simpson’s has to be in there for at least half of the time. (or else it’s not really a Simpson
Contest?Is it just me or is this group dying before it even gets off the ground?
I think maybe we can spark things up with a contest. I’m thinking we have a suggested theme and the winner gets to have their work put in the Featured folder (there’s not much I can do in the way of prizes for now).
But before we get too excited if I hold a contest would anybody actually participate?
No point in having a contest if nobody enters.
Anyway I please give me your feedback on what you guys think.
I'm still trying to work everything outI’m still working a few bugs in running a group if anybody who is used to running a group can offer me any advice about anything it would be very appreciated. P.S. this is a literature group. I know I am letting in basic fan art but I don’t want that to overshadow the writing part of this group so please feel free to submit your fan art but don’t submit your whole gallery a fan art. I want to keep the main focus on writing.
Updates! Please Read!So I’ve noticed there’s been some confusion with submitting to the right so I’m going to make some updates to try and make it easier on all of you. I’ve always liked groups were deviants are immediately accepted so of course it will stay that way. But here’s some folder updates.
Note: illustrations that are not comics but have a story attached to them will still go under short stories or multi chaptered stories depending on how long the story is.
THIS FOLDER STAYS EMPTY!
I’ve made it so you can’t submit to this folder. I have my own reasons for wanting to keep this folder empty. I’ve never run a Group before but in other groups that I’m a part of everyone submits to the featured folder, and all folders go unused, accepted for contributed. There are a few things I’m pretty much obsessive compulsive about, and this is one of them. So this stays empty and anything suggested to featured will be rejected, I

Do you/a friend Need Exposure for Adoptables? I've recently found people who have made these really nice adoptables, at least artistically I think they're really well done. And then it pains me to see when very few people bid on them, and this amazing creation can only sell for like, $5 or something.
Now I've never tried adoptables, and I'm not sure I completely understand how they work, but what I do know is that it seems artists who do them are really at the mercy of how much exposure they get. In that way, it's much like everything else; if you don't have the numbers, really great work goes unnoticed and sells for a handful of jelly beans.
So I'm going to do a journal that features Adoptables.
Do you have, or know someone who is selling *nice quality* adoptables but really needs exposure on them? Leave a thumbnail or link in this journal, and maybe I'll choose them for my feature. I can't showcase them all, but I'd certainly like to try and get a few out there.
The world gets harder for artists all the time
1,500,000 KiribanI don't ever do Kiribans but I'm doing an exception this time.
First person to take a screen cap of my profile at 1,500,000 pageviews and sent it to me in a NOTE will get a 50x50 pixel icon + 1000
Screen cap must be uploaded to STA.SH (or to your gallery, if you prefer)
Of course screen cap must be legit. If I suspect you cheating, don't expect to get anything :/

Group Switch Around Meme Results!The Results!
Apologies for the ridiculously late posting, but here are the results of our first group Switch Around Meme collaboration! We had 50+participants, 150+ individual artworks, and a whole bunch of fantastic final pieces, so make sure to take a look.
Thank you to all the participants, all our helper line-art and coloring artists, as well as the admins who helped me manage this event. This collaboration event was met with a great deal of enthusiasm, so we will likely have more (better-organized) collab events in the future.
These compilations were arbitrarily split up into sets of ten, just so that there wouldn't be one giant file:

Silver Soldering ToolsArtist's Toolbox
Silver soldering is one of many different types of soldering, and is a commonly used technique in jewelry-making. There are many different tools that can be used for silver soldering - I will go over the basic tools that I use in my soldering endeavors, but there are certainly a lot more than I will be able to cover in this article!
The first and most obvious "tool" in silver soldering is the solder itself. Silver solder is just that - it is silver alloys that are specifically created to melt at certain temperatures in order to be perfect for varying soldering jobs. The silver solder that I use comes in sheets & is cut into small chips in order to be used. There are different 'levels,' if you will, of solder - most commonly called Hard, Medium, Easy (and I sometimes use Extra Easy).
The difference between the 'levels' is the temperature at which they each melt. Hard solder melts at the hottest temperature, and Extra Easy at th
