You probably have noticed that deviations are taking quite a while to get approved. Like usual, I've been a bit busy on a few projects and I've had trouble finding the time to even come on DeviantART. So I want to propose a couple possible solutions to this problem.
We can either:
-Auto-approve all submissions on every folder
-Appoint some more contributors
I'm not too crazy about the first option, as people could take advantage of that and spam the crap out of the gallery, but it would make things go a lot faster as far as approvals go, and I have yet to see anyone try to submit any spam (at least, ever since I decreased the number of submissions per day). Besides, judging from the results of the last time I offered a promotion, not very many people want the responsibility that comes with that sort of power, or they just don't really care. Either way, I doubt I'll get any more applications than I did last time.
But before I do anything, since I do value the opinions of those who offer theirs, I want to hear which you would rather want to happen. Tell me if you think that everyone can be trusted with an auto approval system or if you would rather have people look over the deviations before they are posted to the gallery.
Have a great day everyone!
Sorry its taken so long to get back on. Like I said, I've got a lot of things going on in school.
Anyway, to the four of you that did comment, thanks for taking the time to voice your opinions, I greatly appreciate it. Most of you said that it would be better to get more contributors than to have the deviations be automatically approved. Now I do understand the logic behind this, as an auto approve system can be taken advantage of by trolls and spammers. However, I will need more people to volunteer for it. Someone has offered to help in their spare time, but we will need more people to keep up with the amount of submissions, and I do not want to force the responsibility on anyone. So, if you can spare any time for the group, please comment down below.
Alright, I have some homework that I have to finish, so, hopefully sooner than next week, I'll be back to check on things.
Have a great day!
