Minutes for March 21, 2015:
Where to put the ASC stuff?
With Bluyidark’s recent trend and tutorials, there has been a large influx of “Alphes Style Characters” in the group.
ExPorygon proposed that a repurposing of the Animu faces folder is in order.
Furthering that proposal we discussed that the type of change will not only just include Alphes Style Characters and Animu Faces, but also character generated or created from a base art style or character maker.
Naming convention-wise, what we so far have is “Character Art”, or “Other Character Generators”. More information will also be in the folder when it’s repurposed. In the meantime suggestions on what to call this is plausible, leave us your suggestions!
Rule Number 3 of the U-Haul
“What happens in the U-Haul, stays in the U-Haul. Don't let it influence your life unless it's in a positive way.”
While this has not always been followed and a little harder to follow based on situations that arise, we have put it there with a purpose and we ask that you consider the rule, or keep it in mind at the very least.
Remember this: Walfas is just a hobby and shouldn't extent to the point where the group puts you in a bad spot, in or out of real life.
Specify this issue is targeted towards people who leave the group either out of stress, or a temporary issue and usually end up rejoining the group later on within the next few days, this is what we are trying to get people to avoid.
Leaving is not always going to fix the problem, and sometimes it can make it worse. But please also bear in mind that we aren't going to force you to stay. This is because it’s ultimately it’s your decision if you want to be a member, and understand that people can leave for very legitimate reasons. But if you are going to continue to contribute Walfas stuff to the group, leaving is discouraged.
If it’d be a more comfortable option for those who want either take a break, or not view content from the group, please instead edit your watch preferences on the group’s main page to have it to not view content from the group.
Updating The Illustrated Guide To Submitting to the WSW
As the page on the front says “To Be Updated Soon”. That message has been left there for a long time, basically untouched. Plus, with the newly updated folders have come new standards for submitting to the group.
However these standards have not been set in stone and have been left unclear to the group, with these new folders, an updated guide is very much necessary.
We aim to update this sooner than later to minimalize confusion. Especially for newer members to the group.
For a long time now, we have been letting people know via feedback messages on their submission know if something didn't conform to our standards, or was mistakenly put in the wrong place.
Thankfully we are already making progress on updating the guide, it's being updated daily, you can view that work-in-progress here: sta.sh/020ocudlfwhg
Last Town Haul Meeting
Before, in February, we had negativity issues in the DeviantArt group. We reminded the group that we can have a lot of our regular members spread positivity.
I encouraged that we go out of our way to leave positive comments on others Walfas and/or other content.
I am happy to inform folks: this drive towards positivity has been working! And it’s one of the reasons we had very little in the way of issues to talk about this time around!
On a personal note, I want to thank everyone that took part in this, and I implore you folks: keep it up!
