No idea who the "genius" was over on the DA Administrative staff who came up with this unwanted rule, and as a special bonus, made it so that it cannot be turned off or adjusted higher. But it is rather annoying. I have been known to go on binges where I fill the submission hopper with a score or two of additions for the gallery. Then allow the artists time to approve the request before I start again.
So what to do about this? In short, I'm going to need YOUR help.
I don't see DA paying any attention to member pleas to remove or expand the limitation. Considering the group admin staff could always limit the submissions coming in before this change anyway, I still fail to see why it was even needed, wanted, or necessary.
So as there are far more of you than there are of me, it will be more important than ever to keep the submissions coming. If you want more, new material to appear in the galleries or even just group favorites, you'll need to send in the submissions. I'll still be doing my part to find more, but the help will be deeply appreciated.
