Hi everyone!

You may have noticed that :iconwelovetraditionalart: now has over 16,000 members, putting us firmly as the largest non-elitist Traditional Art group on DA!

However, with this size, we need multiple admins to be able to assess and accept or decline the hundreds of submissions we get each week.  Being an admin here is easy - if a deviation meets our rules (such as submitted to correct folder, cropped correctly, no mature content etc) then it should be accepted.  We don't judge the standard of art, we trust you to submit your best art only (as you only have one submission per month) but want it to be presented at it's best.  Usually at least 90% of submissions are accepted.  If a deviation needs to be declined, then unfortunately we don't routinely comment, as we don't have the resources (if yours is declined, read the rules!!) but we can give feedback on request.

If you are able to give 10 minutes of your time per day, or most days in the week, then this is a rewarding job, and you will play an important part in one of the largest serious groups on DA.  If you are already an admin, your continued support would be appreciated!

If you want to be considered as a Admin, please send me a message!

Dave
Co-Founder of WLTA (and currently the only active Admin!!)
