As some of you may be aware, both myself, as well as milbisous
recently mentioned that there will be changes taking place within painters
in the unspecified future. The following are some of them:milbisous
in May of 2008 and has been an absolutely integral part of the success of this group ever since. Due to a myriad of reasons, she has decided that her time as Founder is coming to an end, so please give her all the warm wishes and thanks for everything she has done. She won't be disappearing completely, but she will be taking a much deserved rest.
As such I will now take over painters
In the immediate I will be placing a call-out for the following roles:
Role: Review galleries, accept/decline join requests.
Role: Review pending paintings to make sure they fulfil Submission Rules. Accept daily paintings into our gallery.
Journal and Content Providers
Role: Create journals and content within the journalling system. Content will be determined through providers proposal but could include: member features, group/single features, tutorials, interviews, art history journals, etc. When applying for this position, please submit a proposal of the type of features you would like to offer.
As with all this positions, we will be more than happy to accept more than one person.
The deadline for applications for the above roles is 15 December 2015
Announcements will be made at the end of the year for a 2016 start.
Please send a note
to me, limnides
, with the following information: the position you're interested in, plus the reason why you're interested. For journal and content providers, please provide a rough idea of what kind of content you're planning on offering.
Down the line there will also be opportunities for critique chats and other one-off events, if you have a skill you think would match our painters
ethos, please get in touch (even if it doesn't necessarily fit into one of the descriptions above.)
It's been a two person show for so long that we feel we are really missing out on bringing you the best content for painters. We won't be radically changing, most of the format will stay the same: but I hope that journals for tutorials and features will help inspire and offer assistance to you. Our rules will also be looked at and changes will be made: this is something that milbisous
and myself have been doing in the background over the last couple months. With changes made to DeviantArt, as well as changes and shifts in general, we feel that it's about time we refreshed them. There will be a formal journal about that when the time comes.
All in all, except for a possible lull between now and when we start up in the new framework, there will be an uptick in activity from painters
, but we promise not overwhelmingly so.
If you have any questions or comments, please leave them and I will be sure to get back to you.
Also, as hinted above: apologies in advance if things go extra quiet over the next month or so. A huge part of the reason why we're asking for help is because this is a massive group and even with two of us it can be hard to keep up with. I'm juggling quite a few things offline that unfortunately pull me away, but hopefully it won't be too much of a hiccup.
All the best,limnides
