Thanks to all of you, Figures-R-Us have reached 100 members! I know this shouldn't be a big deal, but to me it is and I want to thank all of you for making this possible! I honestly thought when I made this group in the beginning that it wouldn't last very long because of the more established groups but I guess I was gravely mistaken... and I'm glad I was! So far all of you (the members) are submitting great figures/photos and I hope to see more of your work! Now is the time where I discuss WHY I made this group in the first place...

The reason why I made this group is because I wanted it to be a fair group, where there will be no favoritism and everyone is on equal footing, regardless of their skill level. I've noticed in some of the figure groups I'm in, I've been noticing;

- Most of the pictures they have in their Featured folder comprises mostly of ONE person.
- They list/make their rules but sadly don't follow it.
- They decline pictures that shouldn't have been declined and give no reason why.

I was going to also say some of their submission limits are a bit.. whack but I understand they want to avoid being bombarded with approval requests which brings me to something else I want to bring up. As of right now we have 5 people that do the approving/declining of submissions, but I would like to at least bring in 2 more Contributors. If you really want to step up to the plate then please send ME a note with at least 2-3 reasons (please, don't give say immature reasons) why you think you're ready to be an Contributor.

Other than that, I want to again, say THANK YOU to all of you for making this group what it is! I (we) hope to continue see more of your photos/figures! ^^

I'm personally glad to see this group is prospering. Like you mentioned, there are some groups that have been denying art submissions without giving a clear reason why, even if the work is following all of the rules they provided. It hasn't happened to me, personally, yet. But I do hear others talking about their experiences frequently.

I also don't like the idea of certain groups who only letting one or two of their favorite artists submit to the Featured folder. Being featured should never be consistent of a single user's work. The spotlight needs to be shared evenly among the group members who have put their best into their photography skills. If I wanted to see jut one or two users' artwork, I'll go look at their profile... >_>;

Hopefully we can continue to grow and unite our fellow hobbyists to share their work more openly.

For the denying of submissions, I remember you saying you can understand if the picture was in really poor quality or super blurry but yeah, like you said... most of the time that's not the case. Which is also ironic considering one of my pictures that consist of 4 figures from the SAME company being denied although it follows the RULES, yet some other persons picture who has a figure in the picture that ISN'T allowed can still be approved into the group (you can guess which group this is).

By no means am I trying to start a war with the other figure groups out there, but if you're gonna list and make rules, effing man up and follow em. Don't be playing favoritism just because you happen to LIKE that person more than the other members'. That kind of crap won't be tolerated here.
