For those of you not familiar with this series, each month we'll be delving into a group that is dedicated to their members and giving back to the dA Community through exposure, hosting regular events and just being an all around awesome place for deviants to settle in and feel welcome.
In a couple sentences, can you please describe what your group is about?
The group was originally founded by ScENeYmE to serve as a hub for photography. I really hope that under my lead, we are still doing fine as there are many other groups out there what are serving with the same purpose.
Aside from lots of hard work, what do you do to keep your members active and involved?
When we plan a change we usually post a poll asking the members what they think about it. We consider their answers and act according to that. This way we hope they can accept the changes more easily than facing them out of blue. I think it is important.
Are you currently running any contests? Prompts? Challenges? Upcoming Chat Events? Anything you'd like to pimp in the feature?
We have weekly themed features running. Each week members are given a theme and they can submit their photos into a folder created just for that. Of course at the end of the week, submissions get featured and a new theme if announced.
Also at the end of each month, we pick the bests of each Gallery folder and feature them in a Journal.
In the future I would like to start chat events. With little games where members can win points. It would be nice!
