PLEASE NOTE ME, TeaPhotography.

You may want to LOOK at our APPLICATION, first, and answer as many questions as you want, or feel like answering.
It's MUCH MORE INFORMAL than it looks- really! :nod: :aww:
It just gives us an idea, as well, as you, our potentially newest Admin., a general idea of things. :aww:
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

:note: Obviously you do NOT have to be qualified in every area, AT ALL, to become a part of the Team!
I certainly am not! :giggle:

:thanks: :heart: :thanks:

Thank you to all of our current Admins., for such willingness to be so helpful! :heart:
