Grape (Xmas series) by bribesdemoi

A lot of pictures submitted to various "nude" groups on DA are... primitive to say the best, vulgar at worst. I was very pleasantly sur...

It's a likable picture, there's no doubt about it. It gives rather dreamy impression, very fair complexion (and makeup) together with s...

Group idea - admins sought

Journal Entry: Sat Feb 8, 2014, 4:48 AM
Gallery l Watch Me l Note Me

I'm looking for a handful of people that would help me run a group. Curious? Read further.

I've recently quit admin position in TheBestEquine, because other admins where hopelessly idle and approval process was set in a way which made it impossible to approve anything without their aid. I regret the death of the group (unless a miracle happens, I don't think it will rejuvenate anyway), since I really liked its idea - we have a lot of animal groups, but most of them have either automatic or very benevolent approval. I thus have to sieve through hundreds of deviations to find the few good ones. The groups that aim for very high standards are, on the other hand, not animal oriented. I'd like to start a group TheBestAnimals (or something similar) that would aim to create a digest of animal artwork on DA, so that a watcher would only get a few pictures a day, but could expect they'd be worth looking at.
Now why am I writing about it rather then going ahead - I know that I have my busy moments and wouldn't want the group to suffer the same fate as TheBestEquine. Furthermore, if I'm to include non-photography media, I could use artists focusing on these to help me select the best works. 
I'm definitely not going to run the group alone (I don't think it would work), so the point of this journal is to find out if there are any people who'd be willing to help me. 

What I seek:
People who are online decently often (two or three times a week minimum)
People with decent grasp on given media (no, you don't have to be Michelangello)

What I offer:
More work
Feeling that you're helping to run a successful group (eventually... maybe... :))

If the wonderful benefits persuaded you and you'd like to try, please send me a note with information if you have any experience with groups (are/have been running one), what sort of media/pictures you like and perhaps a few pictures you'd consider a good pick for "the best". If I get enough responses to fill an admin team, a new group will be born. If not... well, I'll probably focus on more watcher features :)

How do you feel about nonanimal pictures in my gallery? 

8 deviants said I'd rather just see animal photography on this account
6 deviants said It's enriching/welcome change to see an artistic nude or portrait
4 deviants said I don't really care, I'll just ignore anything non-animal

Where do you find all of the animals you take pictures of? I'm intrigued...

I'm stealing them from zoos and pastures :)

hahahah nice! The only zoo near me is a little sad- they are shacked up much of the year from the cold and some of the cages are a little small for my liking. I have such mixed feelings about zoos- where I love to see the animals... I hate to see them outside their element. I think I have one jaguar pic somewhere in my gallery I took at a zoo, but it was behind glass... in a big concrete square :/ don't really wanna take a photo of a cat in such a pathetic state. San Diego zoo maybe would be ok- they have like habitats for each creature. 
Thank you for the fave!
:w00t: Welcome, it's great that you've joined us at :iconraw-nature: :)
I hope you really enjoy being part of this group; you can submit three images per day but not to the 'Featured' folder.
We celebrate Nature in the Raw so please try to avoid the inclusion of Man Made Objects in your submissions.
Please feel free to ask if there is anything you're not quite sure of :)

We look forward to seeing some of your great work, being submitted, in the near future :)
