it would be good though to pick randomly 5 artists per week and show them on the 7th of that time (Sunday) and go on and on w/o repeating of course, sounds like a good thing for the new year to happen. that way everyone gets a chance.
I think the ideas of themes has a lot of merit. Possibly having the deviations coming out in themed stacks would help the issue of not being noticed as much. I try very hard to get through all the pics because each deserves to be viewed, it is a slow process though.
sounds like a good idea. In a much smaller club I belong to I get quite a response fron some of the leather art I make. When I posted on this club I had very little response, and I attribute it to the volume of menbers contributing. Basicly my work was buried under other works and did not get looked at. I ,like most people dont look at all the submissions, but if I see one of interest in the first showing I usually look at them all. If its (the first one that is visable) not interesting to me I dont look at any of the other ones. I am probably missing out on some really great stuff...but just no time to go through tham all.
I like the "Give a Feature, Get a Feature" idea as it directly involves Members picking the features and promotes giving. So I am interested to hear other ways where you can be directly involved in new projects.
Something that we can do is "Group Moderators Picks of the week". That is another option if you are all interested. But I would like to hear what you think, and I would like to have you as members involved and interact in the feature process. Share as many ideas as you can think of. We want to help promote everyone's work and help you all get more exposure.
