...Technically, they've actually been open a few days and I kinda dropped the ball a bit, but never mind.
Here's an overview of the changes and a brief reason: There is now a new folder called "Member Submissions 2014". Please only submit to this folder.
It was getting extremely tedious with people not reading the rules and submitting to the wrong folder. So, we effectively rage-quit and this is the result. The voting system for us mods has been changed from two votes down to one
. We found that art was taking too long to be accepted because the three of us who vote most often are either in different time zones, or are in full-time jobs with completely different hours. The change should make it easier for people to submit their art quickly in order to get their work noticed and leave less of a load on us.
The rest of the folders that already exist may or may not get changed again, but they will remain as they are for now.
I hope this makes everything smoother for everyone. It's already definitely made things easier on me.
