Premium Content - How to handle in the future?
At the moment we have a separate Premium Content folder, whose inviation only. That was done on purpose as some providers no longer offered free stock, only PTU (Pay to Use) stock. Our goal is to provide as much free stock as possible and we won't turn into an Exclusive/Premium Content stock group only. All providers still need to have more free stock in our gallery as PTU stock.
However, with art thieves making money out of other people's free stock, many providers including me, changed their stock. What once was free, is now available for a few
. The question which arises now:
Should we get rid off of the Premium Content folder and allow the PTU stock into the free gallery folders? Or should we keep the Premium Content folder, but only allow bigger, more expensive packs into that gallery?
This will be a temporary solution: The moment Clear-Cut
has raised enough points to turn the group into a SUPERGROUP, a Premium Content subfolder will be added to all the main folders. So, if you are more inclined to that solution, please consider donating some
to our piggy bank clearcutbank
So, what's your stance on this topic?
Still Looking for AdminsClear-Cut
is still looking for new admins to fill the gap left by WDWParksGal-Stock
, to be precise we're looking for new Co-Founders!! Position:
2 open spotsLocation:
preferably one from the US due to time difference between Europe and USALanguage:
Fluent English is required, additional languages are welcomedWork Description:
Co-Founders have almost as much Admin power as the Founder and are able to run the group in the Founder's absence , so you need to be trustworthy.
The group is well-settled and runs smoothly, however you need to be able to check at least every other day (preferably daily) to vote on incoming submissions as well as join requests in order to make sure they don't expire. Therefore you need to make sure you know dA's stockrules as well as Clear-Cut
s ones plus the gallery structure of this group.
On join requests, you need to check that the requester is indeed providing pre-cut stock at all and when being the last one to vote to either write a welcome or decline message which are available as copy&paste in the Admin area.
Furthermore you need to keep an eye on the gallery folders and that submissions are in the correct folder and if not, move them. Should you notice wrongly categorized stock during the voting process, you're required to move them directly into the correct folder after accepting. Same goes for the favourites gallery folders.
You occasionally need to handle questions send to the group or affiliation requests.
And last, if you stumble on great stock during your dA time which is not in the groups gallery, please invite it into the group.Amount of time:
depends if you check daily or in other intervals - daily usually around 5 minutes., sometimes more.
Please apply only if you're serious; write a PM to poserfan-stock
stating the necessary/required information as well as any questions you may have.
We're looking forward to meet you!!
Piggy Bank - Support Clear-Cut!!Clear-Cut
has a Donation Account for the group - our new piggy bank is located here clearcutbank
So, please help and support us
, we need to raise 4,796
in order to be able to upgrade to SUPERGROUP
We want to organize the groups galleries much better with the help of subfolders to make it easier for you to find the stock you want and to submit your stock, in case you're a stock provider. Especially with the Premium Content stock. Also our frontpage could use some more custom boxes to highlight important stuff and to promote/feature contests and challenges.
All the 'bells and whistles' will help with the 'Look-and-Feel' of the group and in our continuous effort to improve we will utilize every ounce of deviantART supergroups.
