here- our Every OTHER
Monthly Event, Supporting our Articles with Comments and/or Fav's, Supporting our Themes by Participating in them and Promoting them, Supporting our CONTESTS by participating and promoting and/or donating prizes/points, supporting the group through donating points, or helping out other members when they have a question and by faving each other's work, or simply submitting work regularly, and other ways, too!
(Of course NO single MEMBER of the MONTH is doing ALL of these, that doesn't seem possible!... but there are some Members, WHO strive as much as they can...
How kind and generous of them!
We are very grateful for all they do and for being such valuable Members of our Group here!
andPassionAndTheCamera Becoming A Part of Unframed-Nature's Admin. TEAM
If you would be interested in becoming a part of our Wonderful Admin. TEAM,PLEASE NOTE ME, TeaPhotography
Feel free to look at our Application first, just to get an idea of the body of knowledge that it can take to run a whole group efficiently.
It's SO much more INFORMAL than it actually looks, really.
You don't actually need to answer each section, or even be qualified in every area!
I am definitely NOT!
It just gives us, the Admins., as well as YOU the newest Admin., some general idea of things.
Administrator Application for Unframed-NatureUnframed-Nature's Application for Administrative Position
Accepting Applications for Administrator Positions at Unframed-Nature is now: OPEN!
Before you apply, please know that volunteering for a large and active group here on dA, such as Unframed-Nature is a real and true commitment, which will take up some of your time on at least a weekly basis, maybe more.
Unframed-Nature is special in many ways, but from an Administrative view point, it is very special because we have always had good luck with our current Administrators, most of which have been with the Group, as Administrators, for a very long time.
We are a very friendly Team, both with each other, and with the Members, as well. This means when we do have to decline works, we do give a reason, and we are friendly about it. It means, that upon occasion if there is something that we disagree about within the Admin. Team, we disagree nic
If you already have enough group experience you don't have to look at the application first, but I may ask you a couple of questions.
We just may be the group for you! Thank you! Unframed-Nature's UpComing News Articles
