I am very sorry that I haven't been on DA for a while, as I've been kept very busy with many family matters and other problems, I will spare all of you of the details, though.
Anyway, to the important stuff:
I will manually go into each submission and click to add it to the group, I apologize for every expired submission, as I am the only person that is able to accept submissions and when I can't get on, they can expire at times. I will try my hardest to not let that happen anymore.
I will also make sure that every Wednesday, from now on, I completely accept/decline all submissions. I will also check on the other days as well, but I will ensure it on Wednesdays in order to not allow any to expire.
My absence was unannounced and I apologize for anyone it affected.
The contest ideas that I got in October are still valid, I was just postponing it until summer so the most people possible can submit artwork. I didn't update you guys on that, but as summer draws nearer, I will do so.
