Definitely Need a New/Temporary Manip DD Director

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 30, 2010, 7:18 PM
So I tried posting this in the forums but got a lot of young, immature haters, and it got locked anyways.  I have no idea how to get this attention but this is mostly drawn from what I said on the forums.

I think it's absolutely ridiculous how there has been no manip gallery director for over 4months now. Manipulations have had hardly any DD's for awhile now. The few that have gotten DD's are from a few of the other gallery directors, none of which are listed in the help topic that lists all the DD directors which everyone checks.

:iconmoonbeam13: is responsible for managing all the volunteer staff which includes those who feature DD's. I've sent her messages which she chooses to somewhat dismiss until I get another staff member to ask her for me, and give her enough pressure to address the issue I've brought up. He believes one of the other volunteers who has poor judgment with selecting "good" manipulations and does not pick manipulations that credit their photo sources.

I've sent requests to other staff to fix this and they all tell me to talk with moonbeam. I've had a forum topic similar to this one with less ranting that was locked because I was supposed to address moonbeam with this issue. But if the one person who is responsible for making any changes does not really care to replace the current manip gallery director (:icondestin8x:) how can this be fixed. I know plenty of other artists care about this but it seems like nothing is being done. I've even sent a message to :iconmoonbeam13: recently and she has checked the message but chooses to ignore the issue.

If you care to have another manipulation director soon, instead of waiting another 4months...support this journal...possibly make your own...I really have no idea how to promote change for this other than asking people to message moonbeam13 to get a new DD director for manips.  It's kind of ridiculous we have 2 gallery directors for space art which has less submissions submitted to that category and we don't have one director for manips.

Thanks XD

I was thinking about the same thing...the manipulation gallery must have a lot of works in them...and I find it really weird nobody is stepping up for the job or even try to get dds for manipulations going...I knew sanderseto did it for a while but he is gone too...and its been a long time since ive seen a manip as a dd...

Yea same, although there are people with popular deviation accounts who are good with manips who have applied for the position. And both don't even receive reply's back.

and its also very weird that moonbeam wont concider you for the job because the way I see it you are one of the most active ppl suggesting DDs and stuff...or someone like Kire.Its also weird the fact than nobody even cares about the manipulations enough to do something about it..

MMm they do care, it's just that they all tell everyone to contact moonbeam when they ask about this issue. I'm sure others have complained about it in the forums like I have, but they always end up locking the topic and tell people to contact moonbeam. And then they never end up getting a response from moonbeam so it is a dead end.

Supposedly, a lot of GM's are finally being made to step down to make way for fresh meat. dA is going to start reinforcing the "GM for 1 year only" rule. Maybe we'll get a new GM for Photomanip along with this change?

Yea I wouldn't want to be the photo manip gallery director. And I know of a few individuals who would want that position. But moonbeam would certainly not accept me for the position.

yeh don't diss gucken and taenaron they do a great job, but yeh manips should have a GM, I'm kinda disapointed in destin8x just kinda disapearing pretty much as son as he became a GM. Moonbeem should kinda at least reply and explain why she is waiting a couple of months or whatever (if she is... rather than just ignoring it)... also I'm hoping you have offered up your own services ;)

Naa I wasn't dissing either of them...I'm not sure why you assumed that. I'm just saying that photo manips has more submissions than sci fi yet sci fi has two gallery directors.
