My original group was Super Group until last year but, after so many problems I had to deal with (issues in the management of galleries, poll issues, blog issues, request issues, invite issues, log issues) , I decided I wouldn't pay any more for a bad service.
I was almost for a year (since July 2015 until May 2016) without sending invites to join the group, which were blocked because of a messed coding:
The Help Desk response was that "it is very hard to code groups" Seriously?, that they were working on it (they took almost a year to figure it out!!!)...
...and now they go and mess up the code for submissions in groups!
Kudos, DeviantArt - this time, how long will we have to wait so you can figure it out?
For those how don't know (mainly because DA didn't warn anyone - which is a great lack of respect toward group administrators, to say the least) the limit to submit to a group is now 10 works per day.
You may say: hey, 10 works per day are plenty of works, are you crazy?
Why are you against this measure?
I'm not against the measure, in fact I agree with it, regarding to group members.
I'm against the way in which it was implemented:
Coding groups is indeed very difficult and now the settings are completely crazy:
I didn't try yet but it seems if I reset the settings they will function as they should (though I've heard by other administrators who tried it isn't working, the settings are blocked), but as I said I'm managing 8 groups, they have a lot of folders - so thank you dA for the extra work, I didn't have anything better to do than set what was already set...
And why changing the limits, specially on Super Groups (and I don't have any Super Group now, but I can't agree with that - if an administrator is paying, they have to be better served!)?
Changes for ALL Groups

RE: Changes in Groups and "Add Media"
ALL groups now have a ten submission-per-day limit for galleries AND Favorites for Founders, Administrators and Members. Not per folder. Per DAY; a 24-hour period from the second a Deviation is submitted, and not a DA "day" that starts and ends at midnight PST or PDT, so no thinking ten items can be submitted at 11:30 PM PST then again at 12:01 AM PST!
Be advised that the ten-per-day limit is for Super Groups, as well as Non-Subscribed Groups!
That means for DevNews especially, it will be far more difficult to run the group since the gallery depends on being able t
Has dA lost its prime?Assalamo alaykum and hello all my friends. I hope you are all doing great. Enjoying awesome health and weather. And I am sorry for being so inactive, life is too busy these days.
I saw many friends talking about dA on recent 'incident' and I saw many people closing their groups or even thinking of getting rid of dA all together. So I thought may be I should also add my two cents in case someone would be interested in it.
Being a software engineer what I have come to conclude is that dA owners are having severe problems in running this site. We are seeing more and more server related issues this year and they are only getting worse. They had to decrease the number of requests (http post/get...) per day to keep in their server budget and do whatever it takes to get more money so they can keep running this site.
Core was what they first thought might help them in buying more resources in AWS ('Amazon web services' which provides the server, storage, cloud and all other online stuff) but t
Group Submission Limits and Issues with dAAll right. I'm going to be adding links to other journals on this issue as I find them in addition to sharing my experience and why I don't like the new feature concerning group submission limits. Please don't ignore this journal, this is important for all of us users. Thanks in advance to everyone who reads the whole journal.
By now you probably know that groups have a maximum submission limit of 10 deviations per day per folder. This isn't really news anymore.
I am an admin of 8 groups, in 7 of those, I'm the founder. I submit anything to my groups that fits their purpose, mostly only for the seven I created, as the other is quite large and have more active members. I have experienced problems adding deviations to my group gallery, primarily for OriginalComicsGalore. I should be able to add 10 deviations to each folder per day, as you can see here: I have double checked the setting for my group. It doesn't help or change anything. I c
How I fixed my group request limitAt the end of August 2016, DeviantArt released a change to groups, limiting submissions in a group to 10 a day. This change also impacted the request limit for admins. And it was clear from the start that something was wrong. Some groups were able to request many artworks a day while others only 10 or even less. And there were also other issues: members submissions way higher than 10 a day, groups being hacked because their invites as admins were suddenly automatically approved, and maybe other issues that I don't know of. Since my own group was limited to a maximum of 10 requests a day, I decided, with the collaboration of the help desk, to investigate.
This article is an attempt to help groups with similar request issues as mine. I can't guarantee that what I've done with my group will work with yours. I cannot guarantee either that everyone of those steps are necessary. This is just what I've done and it fixed my problems somehow!

Personal Quote: I love beauty in any form - life is beautiful!
Ok, I said to myself "I won't get into this!!!" because I hate when I see it on other deviants' pages - and I hate even more when I see them asking for 20000 or 50000 Yes, some of them are shameless!
Well, I don't want to excuse me, but this is to the prizes to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4h places on the Monthly Theme @ TheFavouriteShowcase
This is my group, where I have proposed myself to support any deviant who wants to expose his/her art.
We are by now more than 5000 and I hope I'm doing a good job - I want to do a good job!
So, these points are for those members who participate and make this group an active and alive group
I don't have much to give on return (of course, if you like to join us on the group, you are very welcome) but regularly I'll add your icon on the "thank you" blog. Also, if you give 10 or more points, I'll feature you here on my page - I promise a visit to your page to see your work
Thank you! Any point is appreciated!
