To me, there are too many already... they were stacking up to around 100 a day until I disabled it. I mean disable getting notified of new deviations, I'm still watching the group. If you miss a day, that's 200 piling up. I couldn't keep up. Also it defies the purpose of having a group when you have too many, I think nobody's art can get noticed anymore when you have that many new deviations every day, I'm sure people stop looking... You are getting as big as deviantART itself
There are so many submissions to this group as it is, adding more will cause this stack to collapse and bury me under Terrabytes of digital art. I like being able to look at people's best art and I think that allowing more submissions may cause people to submit things that are not their best and will cause me to start deleting most pictures without looking, which would truly be a shame.
I think one per week is more than enough, if I had my way I would make it 2-3 per MONTH. lower the amount people submit will reduce the craziness and also make it so we'll have to make wiser submissions as to what we submit and what we don't thereby reducing the amount submissions per month and increasing the average quality. Call me crazy but I say LESS IS MORE!
It's doing a disservice to artists making serious submissions. The already lax standards have caused a torrent of material that can only be scanned as thumbnails. Only the very best can be spared any attention, assuming its possible to tell which is a good piece by a thumbnail alone. The 'opening up' of dA is achieving the exact opposite of its intended effect. I'm having to dump loads of submission just to clear up my IN box. This has to stop.
Realistically speaking, this would double or triple the amount of stuff in our inboxes, and similarly increase the workload of the folks doing the approve/deny work (and whether it's intentional or not, there's plenty of stuff that's not sci-fi/fantasy slipping in already).
Some people may think that 2-3 a week would give them more exposure, but it would not; they'd be in an even bigger sea of submissions and be more likely to be overlooked.
One per week encourages us to reserve the spot for our best work.
