It still annoys me that you can't add deviation that are exclusive to a group to other groups. The Udon-Crew's run on Darkstalkers for example. Such beautiful work too. I'd love to have it in the galleries of my comic group.
As a group owner, any tips on how free up the folders for users to submit to anything other than featured? My options are all greyed out and I don't know where to go to allow submitting to other folders be possible in my group!
You have to go into your Manage Members in the admin area to make changes to user privileges to the specific folder. Try to search dA for tutorials on the topic, I'm sure there are some out there. (by searching I mean the same way you would look for art.. I suspect a deviant has made a tutorial, dA's help/faq is lacking in the Group management department).
It will only withdraw if you click withdraw, if you're clicking the x in the top-right then it's only removing the message from your queue and does not affect the actual submission to the Group. Your deviation should be in the group gallery if it was approved. Maximum wait time for approving a submission for groups is 30 days.
The tutorial is for administrators of a Group submitting a new deviation. For members you still have to go to the Group to submit, so you would use this tutorial.
Keep in mind, the tutorial link provided is missing a vital step. When submitting a deviation there is a drop-down menu at the top of the deviation selection pop-up window. Be sure to select the appropriate folder for your submission to the Group. A lot of groups have rules about things like this, that's why I thought I would mention it. Hope that helps.
Hi I have featured both of your tutorials regarding Group Gallery submissions in the FAQ of my group #SalvadoreanDeviants. I hope it is alright. I thought they were REALLY helpful. Here's the direct link to the blog in question: It's in Spanish
