We have had some kind of problem recently and a lot of your deviations have expired without voting. I have no idea why this has happened as I recently recruited two new admins. I will go into the admin area now and request these submissions into the group, so if you've had something expire recently you will probably get a message from me. Thanks to everyone who has brought this to my attention - I will try and figure out what went wrong.

OK, I've just worked my way back to September 2014 inviting in all the expired submissions. I'm not quite sure why, but in most cases it looks like I'm the only one who voted LOL!

Now I need to ask a favour of all our members - if your submission expires before it has been voted on please tell me straight away and I will deal with it. Sometimes it just happens that we have two admins who are away or perhaps ill or on holiday at the same time. If a submission expires I don't know about it unless someone complains. This is not a neglected or abandoned group - as long as you are seeing weekly features you can be sure that I am here - if there is a problem just tell me and I will fix it. I check out DA two or three times a day and I want all our members to be happy with the group!
This weeks features - hope you like them!

Wonderful Rules


Welcome to the Wonderful World group! This is a group for all realms of artists and ALL skill levels. We are here to share the beauty of our world which means no nudes or political artwork please. Let's see the beauty that can be hard to find!

:earth: A few quality control guidelines have been added to ensure member pleasure in watching the group as opposed to just being a member. The following types of submissions will be declined:

:bulletblue: Fetish art of any kind.
:bulletgreen: Nude pieces (Tasteful nudes are accepted but left to admin discretion) or political pieces, as already stated. We also don't accept implied nudes. This means suggestive pieces as well as glamour in general. We define glamour as posed subjects.
:bulletblue: Pieces with blurry subjects, unless the blurring is intentional.
:bulletgreen: Pieces that look as if they were just thrown together; in other words, lacking general artistic quality.
:bulletblue: Pieces whose subject is confusing. If we don't know what it is, we will ask you. If you don't tell us, we will decline it.
:bulletgreen: Pieces that are greatly obstructed by watermarks (e.g, the deviantART watermark).
:bulletblue: Literature
:bulletgreen: Violence/gore, macabre, and other dark-themed pieces (depending on content and admins discretion.)
:bulletblue: Photos where the member is the subject. There are other groups for models. We expect your submissions to be your own work.

:earth: If you purposefully submit three (3) different pieces that go against our policies, we will kick you out of the group.

:earth: As a member, you may submit up to one piece of art a week. You must also place this artwork in the proper folder. We will tell you where to put it if it's misplaced so that you can move it without exceeding your weekly limit.

:earth: If you submit a piece to the wrong folder, an admin will notify you. You have one week to resubmit it to the correct folder; we won't do it for you. If you don't, it will expire.

:earth: Members are not to use the Featured folder or the Hidden Treasure folder. The Featured folder is set aside for the best of the month, and the Hidden Treasure folder is for work that has less than 25 favs and needs the Wonderful World members to give it a chance!

:earth: We have games now and then. It's your job as a member to see when they start and end. The same goes for contests.


To submit, you first have to join by hitting the "Join this group" button. Then, click the button "Submit art" after you've been accepted into the group. A page will come up that looks similar to when you upload a picture to your gallery. Just fill that page out and press submit.

If you want to submit one of your older deviations, you can go to the Gallery, then click "Submit to this folder" at the top right-hand side. Then two options will show: Submit a new deviation or Contribute an existing deviation. Click on the second one! Then a new window will pop up, and you choose which deviation you would like to submit.

This is not an elitist group! Most works will be accepted. I want it to remain a group for everyone to enjoy. :)

My submission expired two times. What's wrong?

I have no idea, this shouldn't happen - I'll look into it and try and sort it out.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU to all the Administrators of this excellent group!! There are no long delays for the approval of submissions, the quality is good, and the  "Wonderful Wednesdays" feature is a nice touch!  Heart  Hug

That's very kind of you. I try very hard to make this the kind of group that I would like to be a member of, so I'm pleased that you like it too. So many groups start with lots of enthusiasm, but fade away as the administrators change - I hope that we will be able to keep going for a long, long time!
