I have closed submissions and membership requests for a short time while we sort out what the heck is gonna happen with this group. To let you all know what has been happening...
Our Founder has pretty much abandoned us. I have no qualms about putting in such terms, since that is exactly what happened. In fact, he pretty much abandoned dA completely.
The group has been in disarray since then. But I, personally, am sick and tired of it. I know that the other contributors have become sick of it as well, and some of them left as a result.
Please be patient with Photo-manipulation
as we put the pieces back together in an effort to resuscitate this group. Thank you.
