To every single member of TYA, THANK YOU ALL for being a member and representing the group! We've reached over 12000 members and still going strong :]
Since the admins have been super busy, we haven't been very active lately. NONETHELESS, we should totally celebrate! *WINK*

NEW FOLDERS: Digital NINTH, Traditional SIXTH, and Tutorials and Memes!!
Our galleries fill up really, really fast, so is it about time we start regulating the art flow, to maintain a standard of quality here? We don't want to be spamming all our members' devwatch inboxes too much, right?  So remember these rules, they'll also be posted on the front page rules section:

:bulletred: ONLY choose your best best best works for submissions please!
:bulletorange: No WIPs and submit only the first page of ongoing/series comics!
:bulletyellow: PLEASE REMEMBER to submit to the right folders!
Animation is for flashes, videos, and animations. NOT fanarts of animes or cartoons.
Mixed media is mainly for pieces including digital AND traditional materials used.
Daily Deviations are for ... DDs. Not works that are hoping for DDs. But DDs. :'D

There are currently 4 admins. For a group this big, we're going to need MANY MORE CONTRIBUTORS FOR HELP running the group! So we're looking for members who wish to become a contributor (and TRANSCEND ALL COOLNESS! :P)
The job is mainly to vote on submissions, accept requests, and answer member inquiries. But there's also writing journals, suggesting contest ideas, rules, and all sorts of activities for the group. Having experience in running other groups is great but not necessary, and good artistic knowledge/skills is a thing to think about too :D
There WILL be another journal specifically for this issue, but if YOU'RE interested, please send us a NOTE about it!

click and LIKE please, if you want to support TYA on fb!…

Guys we survived the apocalypse as well. We ROCK. HAPPY HOLIDAYS! :"D

So as a group and as a personal project I would like to give more exposure to new artists and help people find inspiration. 
What I was thinking is we compile 2 lists :
For deviants 5 months or under who you think deserve exposure
This is a one off list so get suggestions in asap

For deviants you find inspirational and would like to share with others
When suggesting inspirational deviants could you write a short sentence as to why
 3 suggestions per deviant
